Coos Bay Water Company Ar
ranges to Improve North
The Coos Bay Water Company has
completed arrangements for the erec
tion of a 50,000 gallon water tank
on the highest point In North Bend
to furnish water service to all parts
of that city. The big tank has just
been completed by the North Bend
Sash and Door Factory and will he
erected within a few days.
Manager J. H. Flanagan of the
company stated this morning that
th,c jig tank would bo kept filled by
j.u tctrlc pump working on tho
iaal:i from the company's reservoir
on Pony Inlet. Besides enabling tho
company to furnish water to many
points in North Bend that are now
difficult to supply, it is figured that
that new tank will greatly Increase
the water power In that city.
It will probably take the greater
part of the month to Install tho new
tank and additional mains required
before it can bo of service.

Chief Executive Continues His

WILL SPEAK AT
Make First Public Utter
ances On the Tariff
(By Associated Press.)
MILWAUKEE, Wis., Sept. 17.
President Taft swung Into the north
west today and after spending tho
entire forenoon here proceeded to
LaCrosse where he will ston thirty
minutes this afternoon. Thence ho
goes to Winona, Minn., the home of
Representative Tawney, chairman of
the House Committee on Appropria
tions. He will make his first utter
ance on the tariff at Winona tonight.
The president is in the land of the
congressional Insurgents today and
there is much Interest in what ho
will have to say. His original Itiner
ary provided for a stop at Madison,
the home of Senator LaFollette, but
the plans were changed and Milwau
kee substituted. Immense crowds
greeted the president, and at the
Fair grounds where he delivered his
nddress, great throngs of people had
gathered to hear and see him.
Alva Doll 'Says Coos Bay
Should Have Been Better
"Coos Bay missed an elegant
chance to do some of its most ef
fective boosting by falling to have a
representative at the Seattle Fair
yho could devote all his time plac
ing the advantages of this soctlon
before the crowds at the Exposition,"
said Alva Doll who returned today
from tho Sound. "Mr. Ward has
been doing some good work but his
time has been taken up by his own
business at tho Exposition. Eugene
and other Oregon localities havo able
representatives a tthe exposition and
aro deriving big benefits from their
work. We simply missed a big op
portunity. "After a trip to Portland and tho
Sound cities, I am more convinced
than ever. that they can't get away
from Coos Bay. If they wero ablo
to build cities there, we ought to ho
ablo to secure a metropolis here In
no time. None of them havo any
thing like tho resources that Coos
Bay has. The attention of tho big men
Is being turned towards Coos Bay
and we are going to feel benefits
from it soon,
"Tho exposition Is a good ono. Tho
grounds aro tho most beautiful of
any fair I have over attended. TJio
forestry building Is especially good.
"Tho secretary of tho Chamber of
Commerce at Portland told mo ho
was having many Inquiries about
Coos Bay and urged that we send
hlin more literature about this sec
tion. All ho has Is a small pamphlet
Issued somo tlnto ago."
Salmon Run Small. -The run ot
salmon Into the Bay so far this fall
has beeu vory light and tho Emplro
cannery Is not doing near tho busi
ness oxpected. Local salmon experts
say that the rcaion of It is the lack
of rain. They claim that unless tho
streams oni'ptying Into tho Bay car
rying sufllc'ent wator to force a cur
rent of fresh water out into tha
ocean, few salmon can And their wav
In, the fish relying on the fresh water
to guide them.
