Fourth Anniversary of Marsh
field's Sister City Marks
New Epoch in Municipal
The progressive and enterprising
citizens of North Bend placed another
laurel In tho crown of their pet and
pride, tho city of North Bend, last
evening in tho briliant banquet ten
dered tho outgoing and incoming city
administrations by tho chamber of
commerce of that city. It was in tho
nature of a celebration, of the fourth
anniversary of the Institution of tho
city and never was there a more
auspicious birthday party or ono
mor"o pregnant with promise of a
prosperous and even glorious future.
About 125 representative men and"
women of North Bend and a number
of invited guests from Marshfield
were present. It was a gathering
thoroughly representative of the com
mercial, professional and social life
of the city. The North Bend spirit
is already a known quantity and
never was It more in evidence than
at last night's banquet. In this it
may bo said to mark an epoch in the
city's progress. In the manifestation
of their splendid faith and supremo
confidence In their city and in loving
loyalty to its best interests last
night's event will become historic as
marking the fourth milestone in the
march of this young giant among
the cities toward its certain goal of
future glory and greatness.
Someone has said that tho three
most beautiful words in the English
language begin with tho letter H.
They are Home, Happiness and Hea
ven. There are two more that are
equally beautiful when bound in the
lexicon of successful cities. They are
Harmony and Hustle. These are
component parts of the progressive
tions of tho merits of concerted ac
tion in achieving tho success so uni
versally desired. Editor Whisnant's
wise and witty trlbuto to "Tho La
dles" was abundant evidence that a
prophet It not always without honor
in his own country and that his fel
low townsmen are familiar with his
gifts as a clever and deft dispenser
of compliments to the fair sex. The
source of his inspiration, "tho Ladles
of Coos Bay" may rightfully share
with him in tho honors of tho eve
ning. City Attorney McLood's Im
promptu talk was provocativo of
mirth that was a compliment to his
Scotch wit and a refutation of the
accepted dictum that tho people
across the channel from tho home of
his ancestors have a monopoly on
that article. Judgo Rummel's ad
dress was a sensible and practical bit
of advico to the Incoming city coun
cil. It was meaty in ideas and re
gardless of Individual views was full
of common sonso suggestions.
Tho affair was under tho direct
auspices of tho North Bend chamber
of commerce and Hko all efforts of
that wide awake body of business
men was a pronounced success. Toast
master W. P. Evans, president of the
chamber of commerce, proved him
self a master as presiding officer of
such an affair and himself an ac
complished talker. Despite tho ab
sence of some of the speakers on the
prepared program ho filled the eve
ning most felicitously with littlo Im
promptu talks that added to the in
terest and enjoyment of the occasion.
Tho banquet itself, which was given
at the North Bend hotel, was elabor
ate, well prepared and well served.
Altogether it was a most interest
ing, enjoyable and successful affair
and one that will undoubtedly prove
as was so well expressed by Toast
master Evans, ono of the best invest
ments made on Coos Bay by the
business men of North Bend.

Running Hko a thread of gold thru
the thought expressed in the princi
pal addresses of tho evening was the
largo and magnificlent vision of a
greater Coos Bay in which there
would bo no lines of demarkation
limiting tho confines of commercial
conquest to any fixed area. This
sentiment was voiced by L. J. Simp
son, mayor of tho city, in responding
to the initial and principal speech of
tho evening. "North Bond in Per
spective." In an address that was
both eloquent and witty he gave a
retrospective and perspective view of
North Bend. It was a valuable con
tribution to current local thought as
outlining the alms, ambitions and
hopes of tho man who officially di
rects tho destinies of the city and
privately contributes so much to the
attainment of tho desired end. Mayor
Simpson's mental view of tho great
city that ho ono day expects to see
line tho shores of this great bay was
at onco hopeful and inspiring.
In the absence of Mayor Straw, of
Marshfield, who was unavoidably ab
sent being In Bandon on a profes
sional visit, Francis" H. Clark respond
ed to tho toast "Also Marshfield."
Mr. Clark's address was forceful, elo
quent and suggestlvo. Ho, too, spoke
of tho greater Coos Bay and gave ex
pression to tho thought that there
should be no more division In tho in
terests and action of tho cities located
hero than in tho waters that roll so
grandly along its surf beaten shores.
Tho sentiments of botli speakers were
received with an evidence of approv
al and1 enthusiasm that 'augurs'' well
for tho 'future.
These speakers were followed by
City Attorney McLeod, Judgo Rum
mel and Archibald Whlsnant, of
North Bend, and Walter Lyon, of tho
Marshfield chamber of commerce,
all of Tvhom acquitted themselves
splendidly as orators of inoro than
mere after dinner ability. Secretary
Walter Lyon's theme, "Greater Coos
want Bay," was in direct lino with tho sen
timent of the evening and was a val

STUTSMAN & COMPANY.
Eagledom Bcored another victory
last night, at tho Masonic opera
house, when J. H. Heardo and his
troupe of Marshfield amateurs held
down tho stage for over two hours,
entertaining tho audience that filled
tho hall to capacity with impersona
tions of the black face art. Individ
ually the work of tho different artists
was remarkably good; as a wholo tho
show was superlatively excellent. It
may have been tho kindly receptlvo
mood of tho audience, or tho know
ledge of the amateurs that tho cause
in which they wero laboring deserved
their best; whether one or the other
there was a spontaniety of enthusiasm
running throughout tho entire per
formance which seemed to communi
cate itself to the people on tho oppo
site side of the footlights. It was a
repetition of applauso and recalls.
Lucy Long's birthday party with its
negro dialect, buck and winging, and
droll keen witticisms was a fitting
close to an evening of unalloyed
Promptly nt 8:30 tho curtain rose
and, In a flood of colored electric
lights, tho minstrel circle was re
vealed. The staging was simple yet
striking. Forming a background for
the stage setting was a chariot in
which reposed a little girl, over her
wua ouispreaa wings percneu an
American eagle-sym'bollc of tho order
of Eagles. Just as tho curtain arose
four transparencies wero shown:
Liberty, Truth Justice and Equality.
These are the four .cardinal principles
upon which tho Fraternal Order of
Eagles is based.
The minstrels opened with a grand
chorus composed of the entire troupe.
Palms" was the first song and
'Come Away" tho second. Both wero
accorded prolonged applause. Fol
lowing this W. Lynch sang, "Lovo Mo
and tho World is Mine." Tho audi
ence expressed Its approval of Mr.
Lynch's voice by calling him back
when ho had finished. C. S. Dodge
demonstrated to tho audience, that,
just because a man is a good job
printer Is no reason why he can't bo
an actor when he kept the houso In
a ripple of laughter and npplause by
his earnest vocal rendition of "I'm
Crazy 'Bout a Big Brass Band." Mr.
Dodge was followed by Vinco Pratt
in, "Tho Preacher and tho Bear."
This young man, when in negro role,
might well bo termed inimitable. Ho
seems to throw his entlro soul into
his singing and also into his knees
when ho dances. His danco in the
rendition of tho "B'ar" song is some
thing between a circus contortion and
palsy. Whatever tho technical name
it mado a big hit with tho audience.
Following Mr. Pratt camo Interlocut
or Charles Leo in his famous ven
triloquistic imitations. With no ap
parent effort this knight of tho
boards mado his voice play hide and
seek in every nook and cranny of tho
house. Ho held tho audience spell
bound. This continued until ho care
lessly threw his volco into tho wings
striking Vinco Pratt near tho kneo
bones throwing them into delirium
tromlns, with tho result that Pratt's
feet began to play ragtime on tho
stage floor. This was vMr. Leo's cuo
to retire which ho did in favor of
L. K. Nichols. Mr. Nichols' song
was heartily applauded.
"Is Everybody Happy?" was tho
overture for tho olio. This was played
by Mrs. Worrol. Following tho over
ture H. G. Howard rendered a cornet
solo. Ho was recalled several times.
Mr. Howard is a cornetist of unusual
ability. It is said that ho has been
offered lucrative salaries with .bands
of high reputation. "Llfo's a Funny
Proposition After All," proved a bit
of rlpo philosophy as given by E. C.
Archer in monologuo verso. J. H.
Heardo, J. Baccio and T. Castlo
camo out In a sketch entitled, "Tho
Music Studio," Incidentally treating
tho audlenco to somo cholco dancing.
Jay Tower sang, "It's Lonesomo To
night," and "Somowhoro." Mr. Tow
er has a baritone voice of unusual
depth and flexibility. Ho was en
cored several times.
