Greatly Enjoyed.
Increased attendance marked the fifth
day of the Chautauqua and made Sat
urday the record breaker for the sea
- alon. With the faces of the Elka turned
i homeward and Portland and vicinity
once more settling back to normal, an.
: increasingly large attendance is assured
from now until the close of the session
-Just one week from today.
Saturday afternoon and evening the
Chicago Operatic company held the
"board, and although they had filled
' every platform program for two days,
there was general regret that their en-
gagement had come to an end. The uni
versal verdict was that no better musl-
. ,tI attraction had. ever , been put upon
the Chautauqua platform.
ZT : Child Welfare.
. -The child and its welfare is ever
and ever a growing subject and it was
a, matter worthy of note that a program
m few years ago to discuss "only a
. child" would hardly have drawn a
baker's dozen, while yesterday, "only
the child" and its welfare attracted an
audience of. several hundred at the"
. forum hour. The auditorium was so
full It would have done credit to an
mfternoon program. Dr. W. T. Foster,
president of Reed college, delivered a
'masterly address. He took up the re
sponsibility of the parent along the line
f proper education, and the proper
. place for the child to get the education
that Is to make for the weal or woe
: of the man. He talked plainly to the
hundreds of mothers that were there,
and drove home truths that they can
' never forget, and it would be a callous
parent, indeed, who . did not take home
something as particularly applicable to
, her. own training of her child. Dr.
Foster unsparing scathed the fake mcdl-
caVnatltutlons, giving . specific In-,
stances Of Portland institutions that had
beggered young men and women finan
cially and robbed-them of health and
. Mrs. Robert Tate presided and was
; particularly happy in her greetings to
ths assembly. Excellept music was fur
nished by Charles Duncan McNeil.
' ', At ths close of the program the mem-
. bers of ths Congress of Mothers and the
Child Welfare workers repaired to tho
domestlo science pavilion where a de
licious lunch was partaken of, and the
work of the congress discussed over the
.kind of coffee mothers only know how
to make.
The work of the congress at the kin
dergarten pavilion is progressing finely
, and Increasing in attendance avery day.
Boy Scouts.
An interesting and attractive feature
is ths 10 boy scouts who are patrollng
tha grounds. They are under command
of -Colonel C. M. Dusttn, and are a
handsome, orderly and manly set of
boys. On July 19 at 11 a. m., there
. Will be a sham battle by the soldiers
of the First Regiment, Oregon Reserves.

, This is a comparatively new orsanl
ration, but strong in the east with about
vO.000 members. It works along the
same line as the Woman's Relief Corns
but has an inherited right to admission!
A" cosy little headquarters has been
arranged near ths secretary's desk, and
several earnest, enthuslastlo women are
tnere, dispensing hospitality and pro
moting their propaganda.
The Harmony Woman's club is again
occupying Its comfortable rrame cottage.
' '- ". O. T. V.
":As usual this Is the mecca for many
Chautauquans and the living room of
the substantial cottage is always full of
busy interested women and it is a place,
where one Is always sure of finding
"something doing." Yesterday Mrs.
Elisabeth Dalglelth spoke to the young
people on "The Man of the Sea."
- Many Strangers.
This-Chautauqua Tias another dis
tinguishing feature, which is an unusu
ally., large numbers of visitors from
some distance, which Indicates the
broadening of the Chautauqua influence.
Among those registered yesterday were:

- Even Sunday is not provided with
idleness on the Chautauqua grounds, and
the day will be Just as busy, though It
Will be a shifting of Interaste which la
alwsys moreXestful than simply doing
BQtnlng. f
Rev. C. A. Phlpps will conduct the
Sunday school in tne forenoon. At 3

vide a program which will be a musical
"Soldiers of the Common Good" will
be ths toplo of tho afternoon lecture,
which will be given by Charles Edward
Russell. Mr. Russell Is one of the most
experienced newspaper men in the coun
try, having run the gamut of avery de
partment of the newspaper office from
reporter of various lines of work to
editor at different times on several of
our well known dallies. He has done
particularly strong work in
political conventions, and la sometimes
referred to as "tne political Messiah."
At l:S0 P. m. Miss Helen V. Hoswell.

(Special to The Journal.)
Marshfield, Or., July 13. Few dis
tricts of the" same wealth or resource
depend upon gasoline launches and
steamboats as a means of transportation
so much as tha valley of the Coquille
river in Coos county. The Coquille riv
er extends from the head of navigation
at Myrtle Point, down to Goqullle, the
county seat and on to Ban4on at the
harbor entrance, nearly 40 miles.
The valley of this river is ope of the
richest parts of Oregon. The upper riv
er is lined with highly productive dairy
ranches, rich bottom lands of high val
ues and beautiful homes. On the hills
and mountains beyond are enormous
quantities of valuable timber and sev
eral coal mines are in operation. On
the lower river are saw mills, creamer
ies, logging camps, ship yards and fish
canneries besides valuable fishing
For all of these industries the river
serves as an outlet from the interior to
the sea as well as though it had been
put there by man to serve as a road
stead. It is the only means of fast
transportation from Coquille and Myr
tle Point to Bandoni On accourit of in
crenslng business in the river valley,
transportation facilities have during the
past few months been greatry improved
and there are now six boats making
trips to and from Eandon every day.
The service for passenger travel and
freight transportation Is almost as good
as an electric interurbn line and. the
river has done much to develop the ter
ritory The Dispatch Is a large boat running
between Coquille and Bandon. The Co
quille ahd the Wolverine are fast boats
making the same run. The Dora runs
from Myrtle Point to Coquille and
makes through trips on to Bandon. The
May, a smaller boat, was recently put
on the riiri ahd a new boat, the Norma,
has Just been built and put Into service
with the others between Coquille and
Bandon. Tha boats connect with the
trains to and from Marshfield, giving
a direct trip from Coos Bay to Bandon
at the mouth of the river. A few years
ago there was but one boat each way
a day. The rivalry between lines had
caused the boat owners to Increase their
speed. The boat Coquljle was recently
rebuilt and Is now fitted with a cabin
having Morris chairs at every window.
The boats carrying freight handle all
the milk and other products of the
farmers, while ocean going vesEcIs
crossing the bar go up the river to load
lumber at the sawmills and coal at the
mines. Last year the lumber ship
ments from the Coquille river showed
an Increase of 90 per cent over the year
previous and several new Industries are
planned for the district this year.

Sheriff Bown was Injured four miles
north of Corvallis when his auto went
into the ditch. He is in a hospital at
Corvallis with a fracture at the base of
the skull. This fracture extends to tha
part of the skull connected with the ex
ternal ear, which Is the cause of the
profuse bleeding from both ears since
the injury. In the evnt that menWltl.

Where the accident haonened for nn(t
a distance the road Is high In the middle
with a Sharp ditch at each side. At the
particular place where the accident oc
curred the ditch is deeoer th. ron
more slanting and the bank higher than
elsewhere. After the accident the car
stood on the bank at the east side of
the road, the left wheels of the left
side of theVar In ths ditch, anrf ti,.
other side high In the air. The rieht
rront wheel had broken off at the hub.
and the front axle had shoved along on
the embankment the length of the car
From appearances the car, after leaving
the roadway, stopped In less than two
lengths. It was apparent that the diffi
culty came in the uncoupling of th
steering gear. The car could not have
hcen going at great speed. ,
