The policy of the Coos Bay TUu-s
will b Republican in politics, with
the independence of which President
Rooseelt'ls the leading exponent.
This the time for Coos Bay to
The election of Taft to the presi
dency clears the atmosphere of all
uncertainty and the entire country is
preparing to enter on a period of
prosperity. For four years there
ipromises to be no disturbing element
in the business world.
Now is tho time when It Is every
tman's duty to study closely the best
jilans and most feasible expedients
for the communal up-lift and report
them whenever they will do the most
In spite of every drawback that
lilnders and hampers her, Coos Bay
1s, today, one of the "sanest and
safest" of the Oregon communities.
She has no poor and indigent pop
ulation to care for; she has more
rs?enuine workers and fewer loafers
than any place of her size in the
country; she has all the advantages
she needs to build upon and plenty
of money to build with; this Is her
season of preparedness and her peo
ple must "get next" and stay there.
Her destiny, lies in her own hand;
there has been a disinclination of
every great agency on the outside to
which she has looked longingly for
lier redemption and launching, to
Tbuoy her through and aid her; she
swings on her own pivot and must
jpreserve her own balance.
The man with brains enough to
evolve a working suggestion where
ifry Hhe shall begin to forge ahead and
(take on new leverage and lustre, Is
the lilg man of the community; and
She owes a lot of his fellows who arc
willing, to a man, to owe as much to
"him and make good, if ho will but
open vip. There is a way out of our
condition and it will be found in
our very midst; it must be, for there
fls no source of revelation nor con
tribution beyond our gates. We
must prepare the base and line of
our own evolution and having gotten
"next," "get theie!"
"WORK OK THE NEXT CONGRESS.
Republican ofiicials at Washington
are already discussing tho impor--tnnce
of tho duties that will devolve
upon tho special session of tho next
'congress, to bo called Immediately
safter the inauguration of tho presi
dent on March I, 1909. Those fam
iliar with the situation and the plans
already outlined appreciated tho fact
that tho congress Is likely to prove
one of tho most Important in tho na
tion's history. Tho session will bo
called for tho express and specific
purpose of revising tho tariff, but
sthnt work will call for the exercise
of the highest order of statesman
ship. If tho result Is to prove satis
factory and beneficial to the people.
Linked with tho tariff question is
-tho revenuo problem, and these will
"have to bo considered together. Tho
country demands a revision of tho
tariff, a lowering of many of tho
schedules and tho republican party Is
pledged to see that this Is accom
plished. Tho enactment of n law ro
duclng tariff schedules would be
cnry enough In Itself, but with this
irofluction must coiuq provision for
s-nlblng rovenues for tho malntenanco
of the government. It Is certain that
there will bo a heavy deficit at tho
close of tho present fiscal year, noxt
.Tuno, and so vast is tho oxpanslon of
tho -activities of tho government that
it does not nppenr possible for any
party to curtail, lo any appreciable
extont, tho outlay for govornmont
purposes. v This outlny seems likely
to Increase rather than diminish and

Keep Your Grit.
Dedicated to Tom Hall.'jokn Goss,
J. D. McNeill, J. Albert Matson nnd
other Bryanltes who can find no com
fort In the election returns.
Hang on, cling on, '
No matter what they say,
Push on, sing on,
Things will come your way.
Sitting down and whining
Never helps a bit.
Be3t way to get there Is by
Keeping up your grit.
Don't give up hoping
When the ship goes down,
Grab a spar or something,
Just refuse to drown.
Don't think you're dying
Just because you're hit.
Smile In face of Danger,
And hang on to your grit.
Folks die too easy
They sort of fade away,
Make a little error
And give up In dismay.
Kind of man that's needed '
Is the man of ready wit
Who laughs at pain and trouble
And always keeps his grit.
The Coos Bay woman who wears
the widest hat Isn't necessarily broad
minded. - ,
The average Coos Bay married
man has about as much to do with
managing his home as a mouse has
with managing the family cat.
Sometimes a bridegroom really at
tracts attention at a wedding and
gets what Is coming to him. One at
Los Angeles recently was kissed by
four hundred girls.
Fourteen years ago an Indiana
man began celebrating his marriage
and he hasn't been sober since. His
wife, who does not admire original
ity, is suing him for divorce.
A Kansas school teacher pasted a
strip of court plaster over the mouth
of a boy to keep him from whisper
ing. It would take a lot of court
plaster to shut off the mouths of
some people on Coos Bay.
It is sad and discouraging to read
of tho an est of a Philadelphia man
for flirting with his own wife. If
more men would flirt with their
own wives Instead of other men's
wives the world would bo brighter

"Oh, mothers, hunt out the soft,

There aro some Coos Bay people
who are very much like Nellie's sister

Two Marshfleld men went out to fish
And not to hunt for deer:
One whipped his fly so clumsily
It passed clean through his ear.
And when he felt his ear was pierced
His hurry then was great.
He thought It was all off with him
And wished to know his fate.
The other man, a doctor long,
His fly with grace he sped,
He swung it lightly at a mark;
It hooked him in the head.
And so they thought it very sad
That two such men as they
Could swing a rod no better
Than the merest country jay.
They started homeward in disgrace
Each with his rod held tight
The hooks Imbedded where they were
