"1 P.Baumgartner.i local -a gent - for
, the line, returned yesterday On ho.
Alliance from Eureka and Coos Bay.
"-where; -fee-went, to make inquiries -Into
the business prospects for the seaaon.
Ho saya that everybody Is coming to
-the4-Aiewl and -Clark fair from--the
Coos Bay ; country. That will mean
that Coos county will have a repre
sentation at Portland In the next four
or Ove months of at least' 11,000 people.
Mr. Baumgartn.r estimates that J, 190
people- will come from Humboldt
county, of which Eureka Is the capital.
- If these figures are' correct the two
counties touched regularly by the Alli
ance will send total of over 16.000
- to- the exposition. - The only direct and
easy . mode of transportation Is by
boat. The Alliance makes the- round
- trip Avery seven or ten daya, and the
K. A. Kllburn. does about the. same,
whlle .tha-Bnsnnln tom-hea those points
every two weeks on her return from
Angeles.; Since the company own-
' Ing the latter craft has purchased the
Newport to-look after the tradeat"the
mall porta along the' coast it la gen
erally supposed that the Roanoke will
- atop at only Ban Francisco; from Tow
on while en --route between Portland
and the southern California city.
' rnnnal event there wIH only be
three ordinary 'slsed steamers-to take
care of the bualnesa at the towns be
tween here and the Bay city. "They will
be unable to handle the passenger traf
fic, and as a natural consequence other
-teamerawrtll be placed on the" route.
... Mr. Baumgartner says for some time
bis company has contemplated another
"vessel on the route. -.Vt " i----The
Coos Bay country," he aald, "la
one of the finest of which the state
of Oregon can boast. It ia marvelously
rich In agricultural resources. On this
- trip the Alliance brought to Portland
a couple of sacks of potatoes' which
will be placed on exhibition at the fair.
- tOach Back contains 100 potatoes weigh
lug lOOpounds to the sack. - They came
' from four-acre patch of land Trom
which the owner haa sold thla.yer
' potatoes which netted him a trifle more
. .than 1 400. - And-, titer are thousands
of acres, in that locality Just like It.
'J---'Ever j lumber mill, In the county Is
running to its greatest capacity.- Fur

tlon were never brighter, and the
country is only In Its Infsncy.T -;r

Captain Kennedy Saya Steamer Is Too
X,arge for rnfftt Sound Business.
Captain Kennedy, who was here from
Beattle yesterday looking at the steamer
Telephone with thrview of buying her
for a Puget sound company, reports that
the craft Is rather too large for the
route on which it was the Intention
to place her. and consequently the deal
ia off. lie explained that ..the run
picked out - for her was short one, j
and the company wanted a small and
swift boat.-The opinion was expressed
by the visiting skipper that the Tele
phone . would -undoubtedly answer the
speed .requirement; in fact, in nearly!
all respects he was very favorably im- i
Dreaaed with her. He will go home to
day. Captain Scott, who accompanied
him from the sound, will remain at
Portland for a few daya. It la general
ly believed that he Intends to bring
the ateamer Telegraph here and run
her as an excursion boat during the
fair. The owner declared yesterday
that this plan might be carried out, but
as yet he was unable to say definitely.
He says if he brings her here he will
operate her himself, as she Is not for
sale. ' ,. - . - t :
