the fishermen demand and which the
canners will not pay, and but a few
men from this section are fishing,
the union men of Coos Bay refusing
to do so.

For Splendid Cause-
In an effort to raise money for the
uses of the free public library, the
ladies of the library association will
hold a sale of pies, cakes and other
good things to eat Saturday (tomor
row), morning. The sale and display
of the edibles will be in the big fine
show windows, of the Astoria furni
ture store, formerly Heilborn's, and
the event is expected to prove quite a
successful one. ' All who wish to give
any fine samples of the cookery art
may do so, and the donations will
be thankfully received. The library
receives comparatively very little aid
and ther is constant need for money
with which to, buy new books. The
adies of the assoc.ation therefor plan
to give one or more entertainments
or sales of the nature yearly.
