Relatives of Victims of Argo
Disaster Here No More
No further details have been re
ceived regarding the Argo disaster
at Tillamook and deep sorrow is felt
here by the many who were ac
quainted with victims of tho acci
dent. Besides Captain Levi Snyder and
Henry WIckman, several other mem
bers of the crew aro well-known
here. J. H. Snyder, the chief en
gineer, is a brother of Captain Levi
Snyder and both were raised in the
Coquille valley. Their parents, Mr.
and Mrs. John H. Snyder, live near
Myrtle Point now.
Purser Stimpson is also well
known here, having formerly sailed
on the Alliance in and out of Coos
Bay. Other members of the crew
were also formerly with the Alliance.
So far, aside from brief messages
announcing the death of Henry
WIckman, The Times Saturday print
ed the only details of the disaster in
its Associated Press dispatches.
OF &P. BOS!
Railway Said to Have A Couple
of the Bay Feeling the
R. O. Graves of the Coos Bay,
Bo(se and Idaho Railway, stated to
day that he had absolute evidence
that the Southern Pacific has a
couple of agents busy around the
Bay endeavoring to arouse sympathy
for that organization and incidental
ly doing a little plugging against the
Coos Bay and Boise line. Just what
they hopo to accomplish Is a, ques
tion. It is understood that the agents
are broaching the question of gain
ing permission to bridge the Bay In
case the Southern Pacific should re
sume the construction of the Drain
line. Besides this, Mr. Graves un
derstands they are leaving the Im
pression that the Southern Pacific
will build shortly and are thus try
ing to throw water on tho enthu
siasm over the Coos Bay and Boise
project, evidently to make It difficult
for that company to secure right of
F. D. Brown, the Southern Pacific
engineer who had charge of survey
ing of tho Drain Coos Bay line and
later tho survey down tho coast to
Crescent City, passed through here
Saturday en route to Portland. He
had been at Bandou in conference
with Steve Henderson, general man
ager of the Bandon and Port Orford
Hallway. Just what he was doing,
no one knows who will tell. Somo
thought his visit was to ascertain
whether or not tho Bandon and Port
Orford line was encioaching on the
survey that tho Southern Pacific had
made south from Bandon and oth
ers thought It might mean that the
Southern Pacific was backing the
Bandon and Port Orford.

temperance man as you all know,
but I am first an American citizen
and shail abide by the rule of the
majority. This city has recently de
clared for license, and I am bound
by that vote, it being my duty and
Intention to see that the law Is
obeyed and the ?G00 license paid.
The liquor element, so long as It
obeys the law;' has rights the same
as any other Interest, and if elected
mayor, I shall protect the lawful
rights of every Interest. I am oppos
ed to forcing this issue into munici
pal politics during my term. In re
gard to this much discussed ques
tion, I want both sides to under
stand that, as an officer, I shall do
my best to enforce the law which
the people by their votes may put
7. Fire ordinance. The outra
geous rates of insurance which busi
ness men are forced to pay in the
business district drives away capital
and is too heavy a burden upon our
business interests. But that condi
tion will continue until we have an
effective fire ordinance. I am in fa
vor of a fire ordinance which will be
approved by the underwriters of fire
Insurance, and then I shall seek to
enforce that ordinance without fear
or favor and the provisions of this
ordinance should not be waived for
the benefit of any special Interests
or individual. With an effective fire
ordinance, the rates of Insurance
would In my opinion, be greatly re
duced. 8. Water system. The present
water system is Inadequate and un
satisfactory, and I wish to go on re
ord as being against the giving of
a long time franchise to the pres
ent company or to any other com
pany. But I believe that the matter
should be left open In such a way
as to give the people the opportunity
to say whether or not they desire to
install a municipal water system such
as has been tried in other cities and
9. Generally. I am in favor of
a clean, orderly administration of
city affairs in every department, and
shall, If elected, do my utmost to
bring about a civic condition which
will be an example to other munic
ipalities and the pride of every citi
zen of the city.

It was Sax's round.
In tho 3eventh, Sax was leading
but In the latter part of it, Dough
erty got a stiff left In to the jaw.
It was Sax's round.
Tho eighth round started with an
exchange of blows. Dougherty at
tempted to rush Sax again but the
latter came back and had his oppo
nent clinching to save himself pun
In the ninth, Sax landed frequent
ly but mostly light blows.
The tenth as far as It went was
all Sax's. He rushed Dougherty
from the start and the latter was
clinching to avoid punishment. Fin
ally, Sax had Dougherty well back
In the latter's corner. Dougherty
cot un close and reached over and
got his hands on the latter's shoul-
ders but did not lock them, Sax's hands
were free and he landed several
short arm jabs to the body. Somo
cried foul and Referee .Hunter
separated them. In an Instant, they
were back In the same posture, Sax
landing short arm jabs to the body.
Monohan in Sax's corner began to
yell foul and tho two separated.
Monohan began to talk to Referee
Hunter and during the discussion
told Dougherty to come back. The
latter went to his corner and
After considerable jangling, Re
feree Hunter announced the decision
for Sax, declaring that Dougherty in
returning to his corner in the middle
of a round without the consent of
the referee was idvlnc un as much
as if the sponge had been thrown!
In regard to the foul, Referee
Hunter maintains that under the
agreement of the two fighters on a
deviation from the regular Marquis
of Queensbury rules, Dougherty's
holds on Sax was not a clinch and
that the latter did not foul.
Dougherty and his trainer Light-
grow persisted in urging to continue
the fight but Referee Hunter and!
Sax wouldn't listen to It.
The preliminary between Jas.
Durrand and John Muldoon was a
slugging match from the start. It
was to have been a six-round bout
but Muldoon' was fleshy and started
at too fast a clip to last. Both land -
In the second, Muldoon simply
wilted after a rapid exchange
blows. He was apparently all tired
out. The gong saved him.
He came back In the third with a
rush but after a minute or two,;; SIIALIj never TOUCH MINE

ed and took the count.
The preliminary between Sing
