"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.
