This leaves Marshfield slight ly in the lead in the championship race, while Bandon and Coquille are tied for second place. Friday evening o f this week the hardest game o f the season will be played when Bandon comes up. At present they have an excellent chance for the championship.

That it will be a fast game, is assured by the fact that Bandon is bringing an excursion o f 100 rooters to boost their team. Fire Department Does Excel The town people -of Coquille should be lent W ork out to see this game, which is th e' last o f the season to be played here. Fire broke out in the resaw room o f the Johnson mill shortly after nine o ’ clock Thursday morning and before the flames were checked by the mill hands and the fire department, did damage amounting to about $2500. While the cause o f the blaze is not pos itively known, it is supposed to have started from a hot box on some o f the machinery. Let Us Honor Our Foe (The Record) If we are to fight the Germans, let us fight them with weapons o f war— not with epithets. There is no need for this country to descend into the sewer of billingsgate that has dishonored a large section of the allied press and public since the war began. The first alarm was given by the train which was just leaving the sta England gains nothing by calling the tion for Powers.

Prompt work on the part o f the mill hands and the volunteer fire depart ment, under the supervision o f Chief H. O. Anderson, was the only thing that prevented more serious damage from resulting. In practically no time after the lire was discovered the fire hose with which the mill is provided, were pouring water into the blaze and before the firebell rang both city hose carts were on their way to the mill. The interior o f the mill was covered with wood dust and the strong wind which was blowing ufi the river had caused the fire to spread rapidly and by the time water was obtained from the city’ s fire hose the entire west end o f the mill was a mass o f flames, and the occupants ot the buildings across the railroad track were becoming very much alarmed as the heat was almost unendurable along the rear o f these buildings. In a very few minutes, however, after the fire department got their lines working it was apparent that they were going to be able to con trol the fire and that there was only slight danger to the other buildings. The hose that was available on the carts enabled the firemen to play two streams on the fire and as soon as the carts had been emptied one of them was taken back to the city hall and the spare hose there vsas brought down and a third line strung. It was only a mat ter o f time after tnis until the flames were all extinguished. One o f the most striking sights of the entire scene was to see the 500 feet o f new hose which the city recently purchased having such an effective part in the fire fighting. This is only one o f a series o f disas ters that have been suffered by Mr. Johnson in the way o f fires; but unlike the others, the loss this time was cov ered by insurance. The underwriters have not yet arrived to make an esti mate o f the damage done. The delay, which is causing much inconvenience to Mr. Johnson, is due in part to the fact that the telegraph lines have been down and communications have been difficult, The loss consisted mostly of belts, pulleys and the framework on which these were mounted. It is not thought that the fire became hot enough to warp the castings o f the machinery, al though the babbet bearings in many in stances were melted out. Mr. Johnson expects to have the mill in operation again in a day or so, but will not be able to make repairs in the damaged part until after the visit of the underwriters. W ins in Clean Game The Coquille high school basket ball team redeemed themselves to some ex tent for the exceptionally rough game they participated in a week ago, by winning from Myrtle Point Saturday night, in a fast, clean game by a score o f 20 to 4. The game is considered by some to be the best that the team has played this year. It was featured by fast, sure passing on the part o f the home team that completely dazed the visitors. The team lined up with Stan ley at center, Crouch and John Ocrding at guard and Johnson and Lorenz for wards. The game Saturday evening was a sensational come-back on the part of the re-organized Coquille High basket ball team. In an earlier game o f the season Myrtle Point defeated the local quintet, and fans were expecting a re- pitition o f the previous game. Hence, the one-sided score o f 20 4 speaks well for the development o f the boys. The game was a good exhibition o f clean playing throughout. The visitors play ed a fast game, but were out-classed when it came to shooting baskets. Captain Stanley and his team all de- serv - credit for their steady playing. Friday night the Marshfield team These nations, or that part o f them thafstoop to this practice, merely en gender hatreds that make peace more difficult, and detract from the dignity o f the allies’ cause. If wai comes, let us remember that the Germans are not “ Huns” or “ swine.” They are in the wrong; the conduct of their commanders is indefen sible; they have been misled; they must suffer for the sins o f those who have misled them. But we will not advance our military prowess or enhance our national honor by calling the Germans names. We cannot insult the Germans with out insulting ourselves. A foul mouth does not help a just cause. You admire the schoolboy who can defend himself if need be with his fists; you care little for the youngster who makes faces and sticks out his tongue. Let us s^t Young America a good ex ample. Some New York papers, we are sorry to say, ha*re adopted the re grettable English custom and are call ing the Germans “ Huns.” We advise them to stop it. It is un-American. It is disgusting. If we are to fight, let us honor our foemen. Let us fight a war, not a brawl. Highway Board to Be Named Soon Salem Oregon, Feb. 26. —Governor Withycombe has before him a long list o f names from which to pick the new highway commission created by house bill 502, which he will sign within a few days. The commission will consist of one member from each congressional district, and when appointed by the governor, the members will select their own engineer. The governor will as soon as possible after the signing of the bill, name the three men he finds best qualified for the commission, as with the going into effect o f the act the old commission, consisting o f the governor, secretary o f state and state treasurer ceases to exist. The gover nor in speaking o f the proposed com mission says: “ The new commission Will handle all highway affairs. The commission will select its own engineer and go ahead to map out its own program and to fulfill it,” he declared. “ It is my hope and desire to select men o f breadth of vision, knowledge of conditions and men grounded in busi ness efficiency to fill the positions on the commission. When I have found men whom I believe even up to the standard I desire to attain and who are situated geographically as I believe they should be situated, I will name them and from thenceforth the respon sibilities and duties o f carrying out the highway construction work o f the state will lie with them. “ I intend to offer no recommenda tions to them as to their selection of an engineer; I intend to interfere in no manner with whatever construction policies they may wish to carry out.” W o r k of the 29th Legislature Salem, Or., Feb. 19.— When the 29th for a bill doubling the automobile li legislature adjourns sine die tonight it censes has been passed, and the funds will givdown in history with much con derived from this source will be used to structive legislation to its credit and al match federal highway appropriations. so an enviable record for economy.

Which existing auto ordinances should he enforced and which ones should be repealed were among the questions that came before the city council at their adjourned meeting Tuesday night. Mayor Johnson asked for the repeal o f the ordinance requiring that both head and tail lights be lighted on automo biles parked along the streets at night. Especially in the well-lighted down town district was this requirement un necessary and was not being observed or enforced. Councilm ans. M. Nosier came forth with the proposition to repeal all auto ordinances as none o f them, in his op inion, were being enforced.
