THE DAILY COOS BAY TIMES, MARSHFIELD. OREGON SATURDAY, MARCH 28, 1908.
10 GODS BAY
Many Speakers Before Cham
ber of Commerce Laud its
"Impresions of Coos Bay and
estimates of its possibilities" was the
general theme of half a dozen speak
ers betore the Marshlleld Chamber of
Commorco last night. The subject
was handled in an instructive and en
tertaining manner by each, and, as
the majority of them were people
from outside of Coos Bay, the enthu
siasm which they expressed over
southwestern Oregon was even re
freshing to the largo audience of Coos
Bay boosters present.
The speakers of the evening were
J. T. Lighter of Portland, It. D. Hume
of Wedderburn, Judge K. I. Perkey
of Boise, Idaho; Al. Rogers of an
eastern firm which is endeavoring to
establish a milk condensing plant in
Alnrshllold, and Captain Aiagenn of
the Breakwater, Secretary Walter
Lyon of the organization, presided.
Mr. Lighter's address was decided
ly Interesting and rather a surprise
to the audience. Ills subject was
"Coos Bay as an Outlet for the In
land Empire." "Coos Bay Is bound
to become one of the great ports If
not the great port on the Pacific
coast and this within a comparatively
few years," Bald Air. Lighter. "Tho
Coos Bay harbor is susceptible of
wonderful improvement. I make
this prediction for Coos Bay after
several years of study and investiga
tion. Portland is sliding down the
scale as a great shipping point and
is bound to continuo to do so. Tho
causo of this Is that the Columbia
river, despite the millions of dollars
that havo been and aro being spent
on It, is getting worse each year for
navigation purposes. There Is not
as mucn water on its oar now as
there used to be and largo vessels
will not be able to cross it. Astoria
lias failed to developed as a port. Tho
railroads situation has also served to
work agaln&t Portlnd and Astoria in
favor of Tacoma and Seattle. Recent
developments in the railroad situa
tion whereby Air. Hill of tho Great
Northern and the Northern Pacific
lines has practically shut Air. Harrl
inan of the Union Pacillc, Southern
Pacific and Oregon Short lino out of
tho northern ports will bo beneficial
to Coos Bay. It means that Air. Ilar
rlnian must look to Coos Bay as his
one great port for his northern lines
tho point at which tho vast amount
of freight brought from tho Inland
Empiro by his Union Paclflc-'-OrogQn
Short line must bo trans-shipped.
Tho Ilill-Harriman war also means
tho construction of many miles of
railroad throughout Oregon. As you
know, the railroad pool which has
been broken by Hoosevolt and the
merger suits for years provonted tho
construction of railroad lines in Ore
gon i emitting in this stato having less
miles of railroad than any other stato
anywhoro near Its population and Its
Judge K. I. Perkey of Boise, Ida
ho, spoke briefly, lie said that ho
was a firm believer In the possibilities
of Coos Bny and his confidence in its
future had caused him to Invest
(lulto heavily here. Ho urged all of
its citizens to pull together, to bo
enthusiastic boosters and eliminate
Will Divide T.nml.
H. D. Ilumo spoke briefly but en
thusiastically of tho possibilities of
southwestern Oregon. Ho said that
ho was certain that tho big land
holders would soon realize that they
must hearken to tho volco of tho peo
plo and throw open their great tracts
of land for settlement. He said that
his llttlo experiment of offering small
tracts to settlers to start them had
convinced him that thorp was groat
demand for tho land. IIo said that
tho productiveness of tho land horo
Insurod wealth for thoso who would
dovolop it. Ho said that tho railroad
was certain to como soon and that a
comparatively fow years would wit
ness a wonderful transformation In
this section. Coor Bay. ho declared,
if locnted in tho old world would bo
transformed Into a wondorful harbor,
its sides walled up and It mndo a
great shipping center.
Cunt. Miigonn's Poem.
Captain Magonn on tho Break
water, declared that thoro was no
harbor on tho Pacific coast that com
pares with Coos Bay and ho expressed
tho contldouco that it would bo made
the most of in a fow years. Ho also
recited nn original poom, entitled
"Tho Scotchmnn and tho Swede,"
which ollclted much anplnuso.
Mr Rogers said that a coudenslng
jilr.nt hero wns bound to bo a groat
factor In tho development of tho
country in addition to paying tho
people well who put It In. Tho
grent nmoiint of forago which en
ables tho cheap production of milk
is certain to make this u great dairy
