Florence, Ore,, April 29.—All
hope of getting Ihe Anvil off the
beach has been abandoned, after
nearly two weeks working and
watching day and night and using
every means that could be devised
with the meager material that could
be got together, it has been given
up as a hopeless task.
Last Sunday morning, under the
direction of Mate Burns, one of the
life boats of the Anvil was launched
and accompanied by McLaugh in
Hanson, Smith, Boring and John
Safley, members of the International
Longshoreman's union, a line was
taken to the mouth of the river, but
the water got too rough and they
had to abandon it that day, but on
Monday it was again attempted and
this time they were successful in
tying to the buoy and brought the
line back to the ship, Pulls were
made at each high tide until Mon­
day night and the vessel shifted 150
feet to the south, but on the last
pull the anchor slipped and no
further progress could be made.
The suip is now 50 feet farther
upon the beach than she was Sun­
day, the bottom is all going to pieces
the water all having leaked out at
low tide. Mate Barns, Chief En­
gineer, and an assistant »ngir.eer
are still with the boat awaiting or­
ders to either sell or dismantle her.

the really old time and respected
women residents of the southern
Oregon country.
Mrs. Lowe’s maiden name was
Eurilia Ann Playback. She was
born in Montgomery county, 111.,

Lowe crossed the plains in 1854 and

California, was married to David J
Lowe, a veteran of the Mexican war
who crossed the plains in 1849.
The couple moved immediately to
Oregon and settled at Port Orford.
For a year they conducted the hotel
at that place, and later Mr. Lowe
Ixiught a farm on the Coquille river

were one of the first families to Io

of their children, Mrs. A D. Wo-

child born in the Coquille valley

An amusement feature is being
erected on the beach by P. H.
Poole. The amusement feature will
be on the lines of what is sometimes
called “The Rocky Road to Dublin”
The amusement is to be found in
many of the resorts in the East.
One was built at the Lewis and
Clark Exposiiion.
The structure in the form of a
large wheel about 40 feet in di­
ameter on the outer rim are seats.
The wheel is suspended from a con­
trol pole and hangs about 7 feet from
the ground. When the wheel is
made to circle it dips as it rotates.

Last Wednesday a number of
contestants registered the votes
they had collected. The numbers
brought in were not large. 2,186
votes would place anyone in the
lead for the $250 lot. In other
words it would only be necessary to
collect voting coupon given in re­
turn for $21.86 to get position for
the lot.
Those who enter the contest at
once will have a better chance other
things being equal than those who
collecting votes later on.
Many people have a number of votes
they probably will not use them­
selves. A contestant only has to
ask lor these votes and they will be
gladly given. There are many ex­
pensive prizes and it is worth while
trying to get one of them. No cne
need be afraid to try.
A pumber of coupons cut from
the Bandon Recorder were turned
in. In every issue of the Recorder
w ill be printed a coupon good for
25 votes. On money paid into the
Recorder office for job printing will
entitle the person paying
money to votes on the basis of one
vote for every cent paid.

1 I ater information from the scene
I of Sunday's accidental shooting on
the south fork of the Coquille, in­
dicates that the man, Neil, whe was
shot by a young fellow named
Huntley, has good chances for re­
covery. He was shot in the hand,
and the thigh bone in one leg was
shattered by a second bullet. The
injured man was brought to the
hospital at Myrtle Point, where he
is being attended.
Ntil is employed by the Smith-
Powers company about 18 miles up

Charged With Assault on
Mis* Madge Yoakum, hi*
Mondav J. S. Barton, State Rep-
presentative and prominent preffes
sional man of Coquille, was placed
under arrest upon complaint of Miss
Madge Yoakum, his stenographer,
who charges him with assault. He
waived examination and furnished
$2.500 bond to appear before the
Circuit Court
The offense is said to have been
committed last week, and every
effort was made to keep it under
cover. Friends of Miss Yoakum to
the extent of 150 petitioned the
Grand Jury to take action.
It is charged that Barton attempt­
ed the assault when Miss Yoakum
entered the vault to place books
away. She fought him off and
striking him with a heavy book,
managed to break away from his
grasp, and opening the door dashed
into the street where her cries
brought help.
Her appearance
indicated a scrap, it is said, though
in all the only evidence really at
hand is her word being placed
against his.
Barton declares the whole affair
an outrage and that he can and will
prove his in nocense.
The arrest has created a furore
little short of sensational and as a
natural result the entire city is divid­
ed as regards the merits or demerits
of the charges.
