BANDON, OREGON, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 1913
FOR EVERY ONE OF US
A P ROAD
Will Cut. Distance Between
Bandon and Coo Bay
The residents living, about the
head of south inlet rc to have
connections with the JItdo road
and traffic between the west and east
sides of-the inlet will be established
soon. The county court recently
ordered the roadway complete on
the ohf survey made some years ago,
The new connection a ill eventually
make a short road between Coos
Bay and Itandon, cutting the route
nearly ten miles. At present the
only way to go to Handon is by
Coquille o Empire and the coant
road. Next year the road will be'
connected up with the ' highway in
the neighborhood of the.Sentfstack
en placf, and travel "can then, be
touted across from the Mrs. Tamer
farm to Marshfield. Road Super
visor Edward Fay has a crew of mn
now at the head of tlve inlet- pre
paring a pile driver for setting the
piling for a bridge which will be be
tween 300 and 400 feet in length.
It will require besides this bridge,
about joo'feet of roadway and- then
travel front the Bindou road can
use this new portion for the . use of
freighting and other traffic. The
Tanner place is 12 milct from Em
pire, and .when the new road is op
ened through the short cut froffi
there to Coos Hay, the saving in
distance will route much 'of the
travel the new way. There i about
two miles of roadway to finish in the
vicinity of the Scngstacben place be
fore the new highway can lie travel
ed its entire length.
Residents of South Inlet are great
ly elated over securing the road now
beitvg boill and expect great benefit

Gas Schooner Has 'Trouble
at Siuslaw. Formerly
Florence, Ore., Nov. 21. The
gasoline schooner Pal.sy with a car
go of general merchandise, . had an
almost miraculous escape on the
Siuslaw bar yesterday, and only the
presence ol mind of her captain
saved the vessel from going ashore
on the .south spit. The Patsey was
arriving from Portland and was en
tering the harbor, when, of a sudden
her engines failed and the craft lay
helpless on the dangerous waters.
The Patsey slowly drifted southward
and had approached the south spit
when the anchor was thrown out and
the vessel made fast against the
chance of risking the breakers and
rough water until the .engines might"
People who viewed- the 'drifting;
boat and realized Vher precarious
position, were reminded of other;
similar accidents and expected the
Patsy to be swept on the spit and
stranded. However, -the anchor
held the ship and the engineers
succeeded in getting the engines
going" again in a short time. Anchor
was then raised and the Patsey
came in to Florence, little the worse"
for the experience.
Several vessels have been strand
ed here and the iast one to be great-,
ly damaged was the Anvil the 500
on boat which laid on , the beach
there for two months before she was
drngged off and saved. The Anvil
accident happened last spring.
