On the first page of this issue will
be found a circular letter urging
towns having a population of one
thousand or more to petition con­
gress for mail carrier service. Rural
districts bordering upon the lines of
incorporated towns have long en­
joyed the delivery and collections of
the mails while residents ol munici­
palities are compelled to go to the
postoffice— in many instances a con-
sidetable distance. This does not
seem just inasmuch as business,
professional men and others are by
fat the greater patrons of the postal
service. Will some of our enter­
prising citizens take steps in aid of
the consummation of this matter as
outlined in the article referred to ?
But in order that Coquille be made
available for the service the nam­
ing of the streets and the number­
ing of the buildings must be accom­
plished. Certainly Coquille has ar­
rived at that stage where conven­
iences of this character are essential,
not only to our own people, but to
strangers who are coming in great­
er numbers to our fair city day by
day. A leader is all that is requir­
ed and a concerted action is sure
to follow.
