Semi-W eekly
Want Court Terms Changed
to Different Months Than
Now Held.
The Coos county Bar Association
held a meeting at Coquille city this
week, pursuant to a request from
State Senator Smith from Coos
county, who wanted to know the
desire of the Coos County Bar in
the matter of changing the present
judicial system now before the legis­
lature. and the consensus of opinion
among the attorneys present was
that something should be done to
expedite litigation, and terminate
the long delays of the law under the
present system.
On the recommendation of Judge
Coke, the bar, unanimously passed
a resolution to memorialize the legis­
lature to change the terms of the
Coos County C rcuit Court, for the
benefit of farmers, from April, Sep­
tember, and Decembe. as now held
to June, October and February, th:s
giving farmers April and May in
which to put in the crops, and
August and September to harvest
without fear of being summoned as
a juror or witness in some case, of
less value than his crop.
It was also determined by the
association that the duties of County
Judge should be confined exclusive
fy to the management of County
business and that the matters of pro­
bate, and estates in general should
be under the jurisdiction of the
Circuit Court, and that there should
be cne judge tor every coHnty.
Also suggested and moved by
Judge Hall, ^and carried that as to
Justices of the Peace, in all districts
where the population is over 3000.
that the justice must be an attorney
and also recommended by the Bar
association that the time for exam­
inin jurors be limited as to time how­
ever, to be under the supervision of
the judge. The association after
much discussion and with some
opposition Went on record as favor-
ing an amendment of the law, to the
effect that any person over 21 years
of age other than the party to the
action could serve a summons in
an action, thus avoiding the Sheriff’s
mileage, which in Bandon's case
is $5.20 every time the Sheriff serves
any one in Bandon, even though he
dees not come down for the purpose
and the papers be delivered to him
on the streets after he comes.
The prospect seems very good for
some progressive legislation along
judicial lines at Salem this year.
Bandon Commercial Club.
At the meeting <s f the Bandon
Commercial club la-t night P. H.
Poole introduced a petition to the
sechnd assistant postmaster general
to give Bandon better mail service.
The plan suggested is to have two
services a day, one a through servic#.
The outgoing mail to be put into a
sack, sealed for Rosebuig, this to
leave at I 00 p. m. and the incoming
mail to be put in a sack at Roseburg
sealed for Bandon, thus mail arriv­
ing at Coquille could come through
on the first boat without having t»
wait lor the regular mail boat.
It was decided to circulate a
petition asking the county court to
extend the new road to be built in
Road District No. 20 t*> connect up
with the county road at Cox’s mill.

A city dumping ground should
be purchased immediately.
It is
said that cleanliness is next to God­
liness and it is good to see people
clean up their yards and the streets
about them but the habit of taking
such rubbish and dumping it out in
the street opposite somebody’s pri­
vate property is not so commendable.
I have seen such rubbish along side
nearly every road leading out ot
Bandon and even on the beach. The
roads belong to the people and no
individual has any right to use them
for a private dumping ground and
yet what are folks to do who want
to clean up their homes? They cer­
tainly do wrong in using the streets
for such a purpose and the only
right thing is for the city to buy a
place where such garbage can be
dumped without offence to anybody.
Bandon is certainly at the point
where such a move should be made.
It seems a great pity to use our
beautiful beach for a dumping
ground and it is equally wrong to
go out into the country a half mile
and throw our garbage by the side
of property that somebody owns
even if he does not live there and
guard it with a gun. Cannot the
city purchase an acre or two to use
for such a purpose and avoid further
violation of common law? If that
can be done let the city marshal ar­
rest any of us who use our neigh­
bor’s property for dumping ground
and then we will have a cleaner
citv and cleaner beach and cleaner
roads leading to the city.—H. L.
