President Kern Objects To
Paying 1913 Prize Money
The controversy over last year's
prize money in the Coos county base
ball league is still unsettled. The
Marshfield Times says:
Henry Kern of North Hend, prcf
ident of the Coos county base ball
league in 1913, was here today to
confer with G T. Treadgold, at
torney for the Bandon team, rela
tive to awarding the S250 prize
Some time ago the Dandon team
secured an injunction by default
prohibiting President Kern from
paying the prize money to any
team except Randon. Mr. Kern
has taken the matter up wilh A. J.
Sherwood of Coquille, and is trying
to have the cr.se re-opened, saying
that Iiandon is not entitled to th e
mom y and that he would rather
spend it in litigation that pay it out
wrongfully to them.
Each of the five team put up 50
guarantee, making a purse of $250
to be divided among the league
leaders at the end of the season.
Randon won most ol the games, but
their victories were thrown out by
President Kern or violating the

that enough Voters of the county will appreciate this
and sign the petitions calling for a road election.
At noon today 367 voters had registered with fylr.

Establish City Grocery Store
Chicago, Jan. 26. Retail grocers
in the vicinity of Fifth-fourth and
Halsted streets let out a roar of
protest today when a list ol prices
for the first municipal grocery store
to be opened Tuesday was posted.
Staple groceries to be sold at
arnial cost to the needy ranged from
10 to 2,5 per cent lower than the re
tail price and the retailers protested
to the council against municipal
competition. Beans thit sold from
to 6 cents per pound in other
stores were quoted by the city at
3Mi cents; sugar lor which the re
tailers asked 25 cents for fivepound
was oflercd by the city at six pounds
lor a quarter, and thcrh were corres
ponding reductions all down the line.
Several thousand women, whose
husbands are out of employment,
turned away disappointed today
when the city store failed to open as
announced, because of the delay in
J lie arrival of goods.
If the first store, for which $25,
poo was appropriated, is successful,
a chain will be started by the city.

W ATES RATES
In Interview at Marshfield
Mgr. Laird Makes Such
Wednesday's Coos Bay Times
contains the following which is in
teresting at this time, inasmuch as
the council is now considering the
advisability of calling an election to
vote bonds to buy the local water
syttem. At the election held a
year ago the Water Co, asked 69,.
ooo for the system which proposition
was turned down by the voters
George Laird, manager of the
Bandon Water Company and his
attorney, G. T. Tteadgold, were in
town yesterday cons ilting with At
torney C. R. Peck over the Bandon
Water Company situation. Explain.
ing the situation, Mr. Laird said;
"Engineers Corey and Sandberg
have now filed their appraisement of
the Bandon Water Company and
they find the plant is worth over
$46,000. The company has already
offered to sell to the city lor $19,
000, so there is a difference of about
$300obeteen our selling price and
the value as dc.ermincd by the
agents of the city.
"The idea of obtaining this ap
praisement was to see whether the
Council would be justified in calling
an election to vote on the question
ol purphasing at our price. TJ10
matter Will com'e t-cft ths ' in.il
next Wednesday i.'ght .ir Ji- sion.
"We had expected to start pro
ceedings with the Railway Com
mission asking for an increase ol
rates before this time and our at
torney has already been to Salem
for that purpose. However, in view
of the possibility of a purchase of
the plant by the city, we have de
cided to await the dec'sion cf the
Council on the question of calling
"One ihing ia sure if the people
expect a considerable expenditure
in extensiors and betterment, we
have highei rates, and we nelievc
that the Railway Commissi'! will
agree with us." y
Tne Recorder has received a
new modern linotype, the same hav
ing arrived on the steamer Bandon
yesterday and it has taken consider
able ot our time to get the machine
up from the warehouse, hence the
paper is a little shy on local news
today, but we hope to have the ma
chine installed and in operation by
the time Tuesday's paper comes out
and from then on we will be in pos.
ition to give the people a paper
equal to any in Oregon.
