Don’t Like Duck Hunting

from the Coosonians and one from the
Band, to investigate the matter and
report to these organizations possible
methods o f procedure to pursue in ob
taining a pavilion to be used in housing
the corn show next year and in tiie
years to come. The band and the Coos
onians started the movement and both
o f them appoinced committees. At the
meeting of the Commercial Club Wed
nesday night it was voted to cooperate
with them and C. A. Howard and F. E.
McKenna were appointed a committee
to work with those already appointed.
These are George Leach and Clyde

and Cal Slagle, from the Coosonians.

attempt will be made to have a build
ing o f suitable size erected.
The matter o f silence upon the part
of the Southern Pacific in regard to
Coquille, both in their announcements
at the Portland depot and in the train
schedules, also came up for considera
tion. A committee was appointed to
take the matter up with General Man
ager J. M. Scott.
The matter o f a bridge across the
river at this point came up and the
Club decided to ask the City Council to
meet in special session last night to
discuss the problem.
Still Talking Boat
Renewed interest is being displayed
in the proposed project to build a boat
for direct service between Portland and
Coquille river,‘says the Western World.
The matter is now receiving earnest
consideration by local business men,
and, if it is found that conditions are
favorable in every respect for the
opening o f the local shipyard, a deter
mined effort will be made to secure
In discussing the matter locul people
have made it plain that they desire the
entire Coquille valley to cooperate with
them in securing this boat.
It is the
concensus o f opinion that the vessel in
question should be suitable to run to
Coquille, and that the interests of Oo-
quille and Myrtle Point merchants
should be solicited.
The Port o f Bandon Commissioners
have already expressed themselves on
the matter o f giving first attention in
the future to keeping the river channel
open between here and Coquille.
fact, there is now a project on foot for
the Port to build a uredge for this pur
pose, providing the government wil
furnish the funds to keep it in opera
tion. It is said that the engineers have
favorably recommended such a move
and the proposition will probaby meet
with definite action in the near future.
Direct water transportation from
Portland to Coquille and from there to
Myrtle Point by river boats, would be
a saving in freight rates for the upper
valley people. It would establish com
petition with the railroad and thereby
assure better consideration, especially
on heavy and bulky freight.
The Portland people are ready to co
operate with the people o f this section.
While they had offered to put up two
dollars to our one when the project was
first spoken of, it is now assured that
they will do much better. In fact the
proposition is said to be wholly within
our reach and depends largely on our
desire to show good faith together with
an inclination to help ourselves.
To get this boat would mean the
opening of the local shipyard, which
would mean the employment o f a large
number o f skilled workmen at good
wages, consequently a substantial in

Long Identified with Coquille
Life and Progress
Nicholas Lorenz, who for twenty-
nine years has been closely identified
with the business and social life o f Co
quille, died suddenly at his home here
last night from a stroke of paralysis.
He was 80 years o f age but had been
enjoying very good health and his
death came as a great shock to the en
At five o ’ clock last night Mr. Lorenz
went out to the woodshed and split the
kindling for the night and brought it
into the house, when he complained of
a pain in his head.
Dr. Richmond was
summoned but his services were o f no
avail and Mr. Lorenz grew steadily
worse and passed away at fifteen min
utes to eight.
He is survived by Mrs.
Lorenz and six sons and daughters:
Henry N ., Geo. F. and Chas. F. Lo
renz, Mrs. Emma Norton, Edward Lo
renz and Mrs. Edna liartson. Mrs.
Norton lives at Redding, Calif , and is
expected to arrive here tomorrow even
ing, and Chas. Lorenz lives at Bandon;
the others all reside here.
The time o f the funeral has not been
set, and will be delayed until after
Mrs. Norton arrives.
Nicholas Lorenz was born on April
2!, 1836, in the town o f Langenfield,
Prussia, where he received’ a common
school education. His father, Joseph,
and mother, Mary Ann Lorenz, were
natives o f the same part o f the empire
and the former saw service in the Na
poleonic wars. Later he was mayor
and burgomaster of Langenfield.
At the age o f sixteen, Nicholas came
to America where he joined a brother
who had preceded him at Johnstown,
Pa. Here he remained until 1853 dur
ing which time he acquired a knowledge
o f his adopted country. Leaving Johns
town he came west by way o f Nicara
gua and settled in Trinity county, Cali
fornia, where he mined with fair suc
cess. It is said that he liked mining
and the excitement o f the camps and
he remained in the camps until 1887,
during which time he became the owner
of, and later sold for a good profit the
Red Hill mine.
In the year 1869 he returned to the
East and was married in that year to

aria, Germany; hut who at' that time

is now 77 years of age.
Mr. and Mrs. Lorenz came to Co
quille in 1887, at which time Mr. Lorenz
invested in a general merchandise busi
ness. Since then he or his sons Eiave
been constantly active in the retail
trade here, though at present Henry is
the only son so engaged. In 1896 Mr.
Lorenz erected the residence in which
he spent all the later years o f his life,
and which at that time was one o f the
finest residences in the city.
Mr. Lorenz was a Democrat all his
voting life, and besides serving on the
city council many terms, was mayor
for one term. He was fraternally con
