ASHLAND WEEKLY TIDINGS
ASHLAND, OREGON, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1921
DINING ROOM TO OPEN LATTER
PART OK THJS WEEK;
NEW HOTEL MAN HAS tIRKAT
FAITH IS CITY'S FUTURE;
The Hotel Austin was tuken pos
session or today by T. J. Coffman,
aew urriral from Portland and for
mer hotel man of Indianapolis. Ind.,
who will conduct the property un
der the new name of the Ashland
hotel. Mr. Coffman arrived In AbIi
land with Mrs. Coffman and son
"Bobby" Saturday evening, after a
motor trip from Portland where Mr.
Coffmun is well known in hotel
circles. Contrary to previous reports
the new proprietor Is "playing a lone
hand," and does not represent the
Interests of Portland hotel men. He
takes over the hotel today In celebra
tion of his birthday. He states thai
he was reminded this morning by
Mrs. Coffman that he had a good
sized birthday present. The. lease
and furniture of the hotel property
was purchased a short time ago by
Mr. Coffman from I). Perozzi, Mis.
Minnie Parker and Camilla Owen,
who had taken possession of the ho
tel several weeks ago following de
fault of payments from the Ashland
Development corporation who were
at that time operating the hotel.
In preparation for the new man
agement and pursuant to plans of
Mr. Cofrman, D. Perozzt ha beer,
making Improvements throughout
the property which enables Ashlund
to boast of a hotel affording first
class accommodations under the
management of Mr. Coffman, who Is
an experienced hotel man and Is
familiar with the methods of the best
hotels on the Pacific coast. He Is a
young man and Is out to "make a go
of the proposition."
Will Open Dining Room
"With the opening of the dining
room," Mr. Coffman states," we will
be prepared to give the people of
Ashland and stopping motorists who
would otherwise pass on, a meal that
will be an advertisement for the ho
tel and Ashland. I am now making
changes In the furnishings of several
of the roroms throughout the build
ing and It Is my aim to give service
that will be second to ijpne of the
hotels throughout the state. I am
anticipating loyal support from the
merchants and residents of Ashland
to make the hotel a big success and
as things develop, continually Im
prove the property with an eye for
Well Pleased with Ashland
As salesmanager for a largo soft
drinks bottling house, Mr. Coffman
first visited the city. "I was attrart-
A " Mr. Coffman states, "by the
great beauty of the city and the sur
rounding country. At the time I real
ized the need of a first class and
atrlctly modern hotel. On a recent
tonr of Southern Oregon by auto
with Mrs. Coffman and my son,
Bobby, I learned that the property
was for sale. I had previously talked
to hotel men between here and Port
land. In all snch cases this city
has been recommended as the logi
cal place for a good hotel, owing to
the great amount of tonrlst travel
through Ashland. Consequently
opened negotiations with Mr. Perozzl
the early part of this month, and
here I am, raedy for business.
The new dining room to be opened
the last of this week will fill a long
felt want on the part of Ashland peo
ple, as well as the large number of
tonrlsts who pass through the city
dally. In an interview with Mr.
Coffman today, the Tidings was
asked to correct a statement made
In the issue of July 28 to the effect
that the dining room would be op
erated as a cafeteria. It will be op
erated as a first class dining room.
Mr. Coffman has engaged the serr
Ices of P. Vasseau, a highly com
petent French chef with wide experi
ence, and It Is the intention to make

MEDFORD, Or., July SO.- Mr
William Matthews, killed Thursria

has been Identified here by a special
dispatch from Pasco stating that M -.
Williams was a former employe of
the Bullls and Sweis caun-rv of this'
city, and came here from fliitf- Falls.
The reason the Matthews name did
not appear in the Med lord directory,
waa due to the f.'Ct t!'t while here
they lived in their Ford car, going
away In the winter, an.l never had
a permanent horr.c here. Mr. Mat

lumber mill on Butte creek, before

Matthews are well known in that vl-;
