The "Coast Mail" of Coos Bay says:
"James Oliver of Coos river has made
a practice for years past of raising a

quality. The question is, why cannot
the crop be made a source of revenue
in this country?" feveral experi

This is nothing m re than was an-

our citizens that one ninu miKht

not forget to d suover that th Inter
cuts of tne people would not be sub
served by the opening of the btreet.
We complained iie.-au-e the munev of
our citizen m lieini: wasted, and
beuauxe the open ng of the 3treet,
while injuring a heavy taxpayer,
would not pay for the trouble and
was altogether iiiiiieceasary, and th
supreme court decided that the law
was not iu the favor of those who dis
liked S'd. Abraham, and l'at no one
has a right to destroy hi property be
cause ttiey do not like him.
It is a pity there is not a law iu the
statutes which would make the expen

of the moioy being taken from the
