to tho Coiinlllo vlow an unreconct
ahli! deadlock Is scheduled to appear
right away In tin- bonding ennipuign
that the Coqulllo people would rnth-
, or put off Indefinitely tho building
of a system of good roads than to
j take part, in any project In which
Coos Hay was to get tho main bono-
fit; that thoro Is n feeling among this
I Coiinlllo people that Coos Hay wants
j to hog It all; and other things for
which there there Is no spuco to inon-
Hon. Hut judging from the manner
. of Mr. Morrison and other gentlemen
present at tho meeting In North Ilond,
we do not hollove that this fully rop-
I resents the feeling of the Coiinlllo
I Whether or not the Coiinlllo peo
ple hlamo tho Coos Hay people for
any change of plans to which Doug
las county was a party. Investigation
will show that Coos Hay had no In
fluence with Douglas county In re
gard to any change of plans for btilld
Ing a trunk lino. Wo have It from
the Douglas county press that thoro
Is no choice In regard to tho matter,
It is either hulld down tho Umpiiua
or reckon with county division. As
for the fooling among Coiinlllo people-
that Coos Hay wants to hog It
nil, It may ho n strange coincidence,
hut this Is just the sentiment that wo
on tho oast aldo or tho Hay hold to
ward tho Coqulllo people. What nro
tho facts? To he caught with tho
goods on one's poraon Is evidence of
guilt. Let us take an Inventory of
tho roads in the two sections. A
plank road connecting tho two cities
and a few patches of roads within
the city limits is about nil that North
Bond or Marshfluld can hoast of In
tho way of roads. On tho oast sldo

population of Coos county, with re
sources valued Into tho millions and

The Ten Mllers did nothing more
than any other wldo awake commun
ity would have done under thu snino
circumstances. When It wns propos
ed to build a trunk line across a
range of mountains, through n coun
try which cannot be developed and
practically impossible during the win
ter mouths, we located a water grade
route, through a country everv ncro
of which can he cultivated, and pas
sable the year around, and Incidental
ly can bo built for less than one-half
tho former route. And lu favor of tho
latter route we have tho assuranco
as far as such assurance can be giv
en, thnt Douglas cotintv will even
tually hulld down the Uinpqim nnd
connect with us at the countv line.
Iho entire plan cnlls for about slxtv
miles of road. If the countv Is bond
ed for $l lo,noo, this will give us, at
a rough estimate, about $7000 per
mile, and we base our claim to $.1u,
000 on tho fact that wo have ahout
twenty-one miles of trunk line on tho
east side of the Hay. What grievance
can tho Coiinlllo people hnvo against
this change of plan? our petition
calls for a road from the Currv countv
lino to Uandon and from ' Myrtlb
Point to North Bend. Tills gives tho
rnnchers of tho Coqulllo valiev ac
cess to tho markets of tho cities of
Coos llay, destined to become one of
the greatest and best markets on the
Pacific Const. Gentlemen, will voii
sacrifice all this? Is all tho energy
nnd Incidental expense expended by
tho Rood Roads Association lu month's
of hard, conscientious work to con
nect up Coos County with the out
side world to be wasted because un
foreseen conditions Intervened, which
made n change of pinna nccessarv and

bers of the flood Roads Association
of North Bend and Mnrsnllcld. When
tho bond Issue first enmo up for con
sideration they know our country and
Its resources, they knew wo had a
just grlovanco In not being taken In
to consideration, nnd thnt n bond Is
suo under such circumstances would
arouso antagonism nnd opposition
nnd Jeopardise their own Interests,
but being pledged to a trunk lino
they circulated the petitions nnd wero
prepared to support the bond Issuo
when It camo to a vote. (Jontleiuon.
your talk ahout killing tho whole
project; of putting off Indefinitely
tho building of a system of good
roads, rather than tt take, part in
any project In which Coos Bay wns
to got tho main benefit Is futile nnd
childish and unworthy of considera
tion by peoplo of ninturo ago.
North Bend, Marshllold, and tho
wholo of this section Is gnlnlng rap
idly In population and wealth, and
tho advent of tho rnllroad will great
ly accolerato the pace. North Bond
Is to hulld her own section of road
and wo will patch up our cow trulls
and get along for tho present, in tho
nienntlmo perfecting our organization
which Is rather crudo nt Its host,
though It hns accomplished much in
n short tlmo, but gentlemen, you can
not prevent tho Inevitable. As sure
ns night follows day Coos county will
bo bonded, nnd the trunk lino will
ho built, nnd tho lino will follow the
routo outlined In our petitions, not
on account of any machination or
wlro pulling on tho pnrt of tlio Ten
Mllers, but becnuso nature has so de
creed. Douglas county will hulld
down tho I'mpiiun nnd connect with
us nt tho county lino hecnuso a large
fertile section of Douglas county do
mauds It and no section of Douglas
county hns tho Inclination or pow.or
to prevent It.
If the bond Issuo Is contested other
Issues will bo Involved, and othor
matters apart from tho bond Issue,
but wholly as Important, will ho In

A Santa Paper Chase
WE were puzzled nbout the chil
dren's Christmas, for nil the
little nieces, nephews nnd
grandchildren wero coming
to the farm, us usual, says a writer lu
tho Country Gentleman. Year after
year wo had had the common Christ
mas tree presentation of gifts until
this method hud quite lost its flavor.
Resolved upon some substitute for It,
we chanced upon the excellent one of
a Santa Clans paper chase.
Early lu the afternoon nil the chil
dren were gathered together, and, much
to their bewilderment, each wns hand
ed an empty grain sack. They were
then told that Santa Glaus was un
usually wary that year and that not
ton minutes before he had been spied
out of doors disappearing with Ids
pack. He was dressed, us In other
years. In red with white trimmings and
seemed to ho dropping bits of red and
green paper behind lilin. Where ho
dropped both red and green nt the
same time there was surely n gift hid
den, and that place must not be passed
until the gift had been found and giv
en to the one whose name was upon It.
The children could scarcely wait to
bo bundled luo their outer garments
and set off after elusive Snnty In high
glee. It would bo useless to tell tho
many strange places to which they
were led by his paper trail and whero
gifts weru excavated. The hayloft, hol
low tree trunks, even tho mouth of a
inuskrat's hole, yielded strango packets.
At length all sacks wero well filled,
and Santa Clans was overtaken just
In time to prevent his concealment of
toothsome boxes of homemado toffee,
grandma's contribution. Dragging San
ta Chilis, who was none other than one
of tho uncles lu appropriate disguise,
Into their midst, the children bounded
lu, laughing and rosy cheeked, to Inves
tigate their prizes. Ah they wero do
ing this they kept bubbling with merri
ment over their highly successful San
ta Clans paper chase nnd exclaiming
that It had been "heaps nnd heaps and
heaps" more fun than an Indoor Christ

Presents For the Boy
IINDING things for tho boy nt
Christmas time may seem more
illtlicult, although uo doubt ho
has Just us mauy wants as his

good blades, substantial key
rings, pencils and fountain pent
always please. Certain things
lu the Jewelry lino appeal to tho
average boy u caso containing
cuff buttons nnd tie plu to match
or u good looking watch fob. An
Inspection of the leather shop
displays will soon couvluco tho
shopper that thero are dozens of
things a boy can use and enjoy.
Why not give him a leather case
containing a soft felt hat or a
pair of folding slippers? An
other case holds what Is called

brush, two coat and trousers
hangers and n folding shoo born.
Leather stickpin cases and col
hir boxes aro also acceptable
The fastidious boy will net
scorn monogrammed handker
chiefs, silk socks ami attractive
ties. The boy who has arrived
at the age and stugo of caring
about his room will want college

wishes to Invest more money In
the hoy's Christmas, thero are
automobile hampers and extra
equipments, cameras, hunting

An Investigation Into the drown

Oregon const last week, and tho loss
of Fourth Officer .1. Shane. Quarter
master O. .lurlshock nnd Seaman 1L

Judgment lu Inunchlng tho boat on

against which huge wnves woro
breaking. Another was thnt a sec
ond boat was launched and tnado a
close search for the missing men at
great risk. The Investigation wn
held In San Francisco after thu
steamer's arrival, and reports of
tho testimony have been received
here. Cnptaln Paulsen's story fol
lows: , Captain PhiiIm-ii'h Evidence.
" hen I went on deck Immediat
ely after tho fourth officer report
ed a man overboard I found that
ho had signaled to stop the engines
nnd had thrown u llfo belt to the
pnssengor In tho water. I at once
gavo a genoral alarm, ordered the
ship backed full speed and ordered
tho chief officer to stand by the
bonis with crew ready to lower.
"Tho fourth officer nnd five men
lowered the emergency boat and
while so doing tho boat was smash
ed against the side by a hoavy soa.
Three of the men caught hold of
the tackle and were hauled on board
and tho other threo fell in tho water.
Inimedlntoly efforts wero made to
rescue nil the men. Tho sea was
running high and It would liavo
boon folly to launch the boat until
thu ship could be swung and a lee
made. As soon nit this could bo
done llfcbont No. I was lowered
with flvo men. hut after searching
for nearly half an hour It came
bnck without finding nny traco of
the lost men. Tho sen was so rough
that the boat's crew had to bo
hauled aboard and tho bont aban
doned. The steamer cruised about
until fl:L0 o'clock nnd then pro
ceeded on her course"
Tells of Excltincnt.
"The passengers acted like a lot
of maniacs," declared First Officer
Henry W. Ravens, "wo might hav
done moro if It had not beon ror
their Interference. I gavo no ardors
to tho fourth officer to lower tho
emergency bont and tho cnptaln or
dered a wait until the ship had
formed n Ice.
After tho testimony Is transcribed:
