(By Associated Press.)
CHICAGO, 111., July 25. Presi
dent Roosevelt has Informed Attor
ney General Bonaparte to take imme
diate steps to forco the prosecution
of the Chicago rebate case against
tho Standard Oil Company, the $29,
240,000 fine and verdict of guilty In
the first case having been set aside
by the Circuit Court of Appeals the
other dny. President Roosevelt in
sists that tho Standard Oil Company
bo punished for the violation which
he characterizes as a flagrant one.
Roosevelt's statement had the ef
fect of a galvanic oattery on tho gov
ernment's legal forces in Chicago.
District Attorney Sims and his assist
ants are straining every nerve to re
gain the 129,240,000 fine without a
new trial as they realize that a sec
ond trial even in the event of convic
tion will mean a much smaller fine.
They base their hope on the theory
that Bonapaite's case against Stand
ard Oil Company can bo carried to
the Supreme court of the United Sta
tes and that though an application
of tho writ of certiorari, they may
also petition for a rehearing before
United States Court of Appeals.

Twice-a-Day Service to
Beginning Monday, July 25, twlce-a-day
mall service will be Inaugurat
ed between Coos Bay, Coquille and
Myrtle Point. Announcement to this
effect has been made by General Man
ager C. J. Millis of the C. B R. & E.
Ry. & N. Co. The additional mail
facilities are the result of the recent
changes in train service between, the
points which is proving decidedly ad
vantageous to all of the points con
cerned. The twlce-a-day mall service will
be of special value to business and
professional men of the three cities
as it will enable them to get letters
from one town to another and replies
by mall the same day and even this
record can possibly be doubled by use
of the special delivery where prompt
service can bo had In the postofflces.
The additional traffic given the ex
tra train service was a sufficient
token of appreciation of Mr. Millis
efforts to give the best possible ser
vice and the establishment of the im
proved mall service will bo highly
gratifying to the residents of the Co
quille Valley and Coos Bay.

Coquille Umpire Gives His
Version of Last Sunday's
The controversy between the
Marshfield fans and the Coquille
team as to Umpire Burnsido's deci
sions is growing decidedly warm so
that the next game between tho teams
promises to be one of'the most in
teresting of the season.Whllo Sunday's
games between Coquille and North
Bend at North Bend and Bandon and
Marshfield In Marshfield promise to
bo good ones, the fans are waiting
for the next contest with Coquille.
Chas Baxter of Coquille. denies
the report that he refused to accept
a wager made on last Sunday's game,
declaring that he didn't hayo any
money up on the game. Umpire Burn
side has the following in the Coquille
Sentinel this week, relative to the
statement of the Marshfield fans
which was printed by The Times last
Editor Coquille Sentinel: The at
tack In Monday's Times regarding
the decision of a fair ball which the
Clam Diggers contended was a foul
ball was unwarranted and shows
they are good sports as long as they
are winning, but when they happen
to be defeated they set up a baby
cry of foul. Wo do not blame the
niittnr of Tho Times as he was
"stung" in listening to only one side
of the question while he should have
called up the undersigned or some
of the team and got their side of
All fair-minded persons who saw
tho play called it a fair ball and If
Marshfield had been at bat and the
same play made they would have re
ceived the same decision. While the
decision was close It was not as rank
as the one made by Agnew, Marsh
field's umpire at a game In that city
Juno 2 Gth when a foul ball was
counted a fair ball outside of first
baso. Players should remember that
all decisions of umpires are finals in
all cases and that whilo tho umpire
may make mistakes they are not
done from a motive of throwing a
game but from faulty Judgment.
No one haB ever found complaint
with my decisions during tho three
years In which I have umpired
games. I havo never yot been ac
cused of selling out any team and am
not afraid to havo any one look up
my past record or wrlto to tho presi
dent of the Trl-Clty League for
which I worked two years. Although
I may look llko a "kid" I am old
enough to show such follows as Mc
Keown and some of his sipart team
mates things about tho game. It
McKeown waB playing In organized J
ball ho would have most of his
salary taken from him by umpires
in fines becauso they would not Btand
for his stylo of ball.
