Masters & McLain's Scow With
Load of Rock Sinks in
Masters & McLain, of this city,
have sustained a loss of about ?1,000
in the sinking of a huge scow up on
the south fork of the Coos River last
Saturday. Tho scow was used to
haul rock from the concern's quar
ries up the river, for concrete build
ing work in this city. It was loaded
with about three hundred tons of
rock when 'it sank, and it is expected
the outfit will be a total loss.
Mr. McLain stated yesterday that
the scow had been securely moored
iu i.iis docl. at tne quarries, when a
rush of logs from a jam up the rivor
' crashed into the scow, breaking It
loose ia spite of the efforts of a mini-
, her of men who were trying to save
1 the outfit. The logs continued to
come with such force that the scow
, finally broke away. The river also
and the rush of water carried tne
and tho rush of water caried the
stone about two miles down the river.
Finally the scow stuck on a bar,
with one end tilted up. The water
'continued to rise, but the weight of
stone prevented the lower end of the
i . . ...
scow irom rising with the water,
which poured into an open hatch and
sank the whole outfit. Mr. McLain
said yesterday that he believed he had
good reasons to ask a settlement
from the party shipping the logs
down the .river without attending to
them on the way. He is a firm be
liever in the rights of loggers, but
believes he also has some rights for
redress, seeing that it was no fault
of himself or men that the scow was
knocked away from her moorings
in spite of strenuous efforts to stop
Grocery Salesman Takes Ex
ception to Statement of
Marshfleld, Ore.. Dec. 22, 1905.
To the Editor of the Times:
In Friday's issue of jour paper 'I
note an interesting, and in some
ways a most extraordinary, summary
of the trade situation between this
locality and San Francisco. I am
more apt in quoting grocery prices
than pushing a quill, but as I repre
sent a Portland grocery house and
am therefore somewhat interested in
this matter I venture to request that
you give space to a mild protest
i against Mr. Dow arbitrarily handing
tho grocery business of this locality
over to San Francisco.
Mr. Dow says: "The grocery busi
ness of this locality seems to have al
most entirely gone back to San Fran
cisco," (note the word seems). In
regard to this I will say that Port
land grocery houses nro at the pres
ent time enjoying a larger trade with
Coos Bay points than ever before,
and speaking of my own house, can
truthfully state that we have a larger
volume of business than even during
the period immediately following the
San Francisco disaster, when per
force, everything for this section was
purchased in Portland.
Representatives of four Portland
grocery houses, including myself,
make this terltory, nnd If Mr. Dow's
statement bo true, how do I manage
to eko out an existence? And why
do the three other houses send sales
men Into this expensive terltory If al
most tho entiro grocery trado goes to
tho southern city? Three San Fran
cisco grocery houses are represented
in this section, by very able sales
men too. and 1 think they nro secur
ing n share of the business. If they
were not tuir houses would with
This Is a half way ground between
Portland nnd San Francisco, and all
things being equal I liavo no doubt
but that tho volume of trade would be
impartially divided, but, owing to the
lact that there are. two steamers
weokly making (he roun'd trip do
tween this and Portland aftainst one
from San Franclsqo, It ria'lurally fol
lows that tne balance b'f' "trade la in
favor of tne first named titty. In

fact one of the San Francitco gro-
cjrymen In a recent conversation with
me, stated that he considered the
present steamer service with the
south a serious handicap to his bui
n!?ss. The candy, cracker and hardware
men are no doubt able to dpeak for
themselves, but from what I note In
maklnc mv regular rounds of the
business houses, Portland Is receiving
her share of the business in these
lines. With regard to candy I be
lieve that It is pretty generally con
ceded that Portland supplies at leas:
two-thirds of that commodity used In ,
Coos County. The greater portion of
which is supplied through a local
firm, and the same might be said of
Two hardware houses from each
city are represented here and it '
would be safe to assume that Port
land is getting an equal share of tho
trade. In view of .the better trans-1
portation facilities between here nnd
the latter place I am inclined to be
lieve that the northern city has the
best of It. Mr. Dow sells neither
groceries, hardware nor candy and
to his unfnmillarlty with these lines
more than to the fact that ho is agent
for the San Francisco steamer, do I
ascribe the erroneous statements
above mentioned. Thanking you In
advance for the space accorded me, I
remain, Youre truly,
