L.. .1 ItlBplon WU born Wept. 1,
1877, at Oakland, Cnl . nml Is the
son of tin- Into ('apt. A. M. Sliiiiuon,
IBS ptofctff luiiitiormnn. The fact
I hut Ills I'm tb. t was a IiIk operator
on the roast gave him the advantage
of learning the lumber business but
he did not learn It without real work
and hard knock. Mr. Simpson at
tended the public schools of Oakland,
graduated from Mt. Tamalplaa Mili
tary Academy and entered the Uni
versity of California but did not
finish the .-nurse there.
In 1896, when 18 year of age,'
Mr. Simpson took n Job a ofrico boy '
for the Simpson Lumber Company
at a salary of 80 a month. TaMI
he went to Gray flarhnr where his1
tilth.'!' .1 a mill ami worked as
n cominnn laborer and In the ship
plug department. In 1S9. after he-i
ing married he came In Cons Hay
and worked In the ship yard for
11,60 a day. I.oter John Kruse who1
was at the head of the Simpson In- I
terewts on Cos Hay went to San Kran i
Cisco and L, J. Simpson was put In
. lin --- of the local business. There '
was a saw mill cutting 60,000 feet
of lumber a day In a ship yard. This
plant was located at what Is known
as Old Town of North Bend.
At that time transportation be
tween Marshfleld and the ship yard
was slow as boats nave the only
means of travel. Mr. Simpson con
ceived the Idea of making another
town and he made It.
This was by no means an easy
tusk ns his father opposed strongly
the plan but Mr. Simpson carried It
out alone. Klghtlng his father's op
position he bought a tract of 550
acres of laud with water front, on
this tract there were three buildings
a complete residence, an incomplete
house and burn. The first piling of
the city wharf was driven in Decern

There are lights that light the mean, streaming out where billows
And the light of love eternal for the tempests of the soul,
Hut a light the world is needing as was never need before,
For the nations walk In darkness 'neath the thunder clouds of war
More than ship that near the breakers, more than soul In deepest
Is the menace to the millions marching onward unto doom.
Lire Is life and sacred ever to the limit of Its span.
Hut the lives of men are lesser than the larger life of man,
Yet were this the day of trial for the whole vast human race
The truth as Lincoln saw It Is the only truth to face:
The truth that truth is dearer than the dearest life of all.
For without Its firm foundation even Freedom's house must fall:
This the beacon bright before us that In vain the foe assails,
For the light thai shown In Lincoln Is the Light thai never rails.
Far across the broad Atlantic where the crested billows leap
And the trough affords the umhush for assassins of the tli ep,
We are sending stalwart soldiers forth to bailie for the right,
Hut. more than men and money, we are sending Lincoln's light;
We are sending out his message clear across the crested waves:
Not as nations nor as races shall mankind be held as slaves.
We who set the world example when we made a people free
:.. to fight the fight of freedom and of world democracy;
We who for the planter's profits did not pause at God's command
Are as scornful of the scepter In a Kaiser's palsied hand.
As we fought to save the Union, so In this, our larger plan,
We will fight to save all peoples In "the family of man;"
Words of God upon the banner that by Lincoln was unfurled,
For the light that shone in Lincoln was the Light or all the World.
When among the Stars of Freedom came division and dissent,
It was Lincoln's light that held them In their bannered firmament;
Stars of hope he made them sparkle with a hm- Illumined ray,
Lent a luster to Old Glory that will last till Judgment day.
And ir by Mis faith Inspired we go forward without fear
In a dally clearer vision even faults will but appear
Hetter blunders made by freemen than perfection of the plan
Of a Kaiser bent on crushing all the freedom out of man.
There were blunders In the sixties; Lincoln saw them, hut he knew
That America would triumph If Americans were true
When they asked If God was on our side and led us where wo trod,
Me was more concerned with knowing we were on the side of God
Not as Kaiser God commanding, but God seeking everywhere
And (lie light thut came to Lincoln was the Light of answered pra.T.
Then all honor unto Lincoln, let his name be curved in gold
Chosen leader of a people like the patriarchs of old,
Coming forth n modern Moses, filled with wlsdnm from above.
And with all commaudnic uts ended In the one cemmandment: Love.
Love embracing all creation, not confined lo creed or clan
Who believes in Gnd the Father must in Hrnthcrhood of Man.
This the truth as Lincoln saw II through the darkness of the fray.
Tills the truth now written larger In a wider world today,
i'or the essence of the inclining of the "free. loin of the seas,"
Of a world made safe from despots, safe for all democracies.
Is no other than the doctrine thut the world belongs In all,
That the law of God forbids us holding fellnwmeu In tbrull.
Waving o cr the fields of Kurnpe, flotlng o'er Atlantic gules
Is this light, the light of Lincoln, and the Light thut never falls.
