Some local statistic sharks have
been figuring out that the taxes in
Coos county run to surprising figures
and they have handed The Record
the following findings. They figured
the population of Marshfield 6, 000,
Bandon 3 ,oco, North Bend 31000,
Coquillc 2 000 and Eastside 250.
In applying the figuring along this
path, they find that Marshfield is
paying 20 per capita, North Bend
$25, Bandon $16, Coquille $14, and
Eastside 37. This is not given as
accurate, neither do the statisticians

R. E. L. Bediilion in Inter
view at Roseburg. He
R. E. L. Bediilion, a heavy stock-
holder in the Bandon Woolen Mills,
and one of Coos county's best known
residents, is spending a few days in
Roseburg on business.
Incidentally, Mr. Bedilliori is
talking good roads, being especially
interested in the present almost im
passable highway connecting Rose
burg and Myrtle Point. .Vhile ad
mitting that the permanent im
provement of the road would be
worth millions of dollars to Coos
Bay, Mr Bediilion does not lose
sight of the fact that much would be
gained in a financial way by Rose
burg and other valley towns,
Bandon is a natural summer re
sort, according to Mr. Bediilion,
and with a passable highway between
Roseburg and the coast, thousands
of valley people would visit there
during the summer months. He
says the people of Bandon are a
progressive class and are doing
everything possible to bring about
an improvement of the Myrtle Point
road. This highway, Mr. Bediilion
contends is the feasible route to the
coast, and is the only road worthy
of any - great expenditure. The
people of Coos county are at present
circulating petitions authorizing the
issuance of bonds for good . roads,
states Mr. Bediilion. In the event
Douglas county does'it'share m the
direction of improving the Myrtle
Point road, much of the money
realized irom the Coos Bay bonds
will be spent on the thoroughfare
from Myrtle Point to the Douglas
Mr, Bediilion says a good and-
permanent highway between Rose
burg and Myrtle Point would be the
means of simulating an interchange
of commerce which would total
many thousands ot dollars in a few
years. Mr. Bediilion expects to
leave Roseburg tonight or tomor
row. Umpqua Valley News.
Coming to the Grand.
"The Last Days of Pompeii,"
This tremendous film has been the
talk of the civilized world. It is
years ahead of the present day
photo drama and reveals to the pub
lic the marvelous possibilities of the
motion picture camera. Shown in
the best theatres throughout the
world at prices ranging from fifty
cents to a dollar, "The Last Days of
Pompeii," has exceeded all previous
records for attendance. It has met
with unanimous endorsement from
press and pulpit alike. Description
of this wonderful masterwork is
utterly futile. To see it with your
own eyes is the only way to get a
complete understanding of this, one
of the greatest disasters that ancient
history has chronicled.
It has taken much effort and pen
severance by the management of
Grand Theatre to persuade the
Pacific Coast agent of "The Last
Days of Pompeii," to bring this sub
ject to Coos county and exhibit this
feature at an admission price that
eerybody ran aflord to meet.
"The Last days of Pompeii,"
comes complete in six reels. Two
shows will be given,' one beginning
at 7:00 p, m and at 9:00 p.m, The
date is Fi idav February 20th, The

NO DEAL YET?
Manager Bediilion of Bandon
Says Nothing Has Been
Closed About Deal.
R. E. L. Bediilion, head of the
Bandon Woolen Mills, left for his
home at Bandon this afternoon after
spending a day on the Bay looking
over possible new sites for the Wool,
en mill which have been offered him
if he will move the factory to Coos
The report circulated here that
he had signed up an agreement to
locate the factory at Crawford Point
or anywhere else is incorrect, as he
has. not signed anything of the kind.
The?, matter is just as was pubiished
in The Times the other day and
tha is that negotiatiens are on.
Mr. Bediilion is in the field for a
new-location and plans to consider
ably enlarge the Bandon Woolen
Mjll1. Under the new tariff he sees
a chance to vastly increase its scope
and 'profits and wants to take advan
tage of the opportunity presented.
The Bandon Woolen Mill has
been a big factor for Bandon and
will be for any point that gets it. It
is' a growing factory and one of the
kind that President McLain of the
Marshfield Chamber of Commerce
and others have been advocating
that Coos Bay needs for its develop
ment' The Marshfield Chamber of Com
merce last evening discussed the
matter and today members. -of the
executive committee comerrea wun
Mr. Bediilion. As long as Mr. Be
diilion has not definitely decided
upon a location they wish to do
anything they can, to help him lo
cate on Coos Bay. So far, the pro
position is purely a tentative one.
The matter will probably be de.
cided definitely, within the next few
days. Coos Bay. Times.

men at work at the north approach
to the site of the bridge which is
to span an arm of Coos Bay to enter
"Early in the spring, or just as
soon as the weather will permit,"
said Superintendent Dixon, "we
will place a large force of men at
work on the grade and push it as
fast as possible. We will have as
large a crew as we did last year or
perhaps larger. No grade work
can be done at this time of year on
account of the softness of the earth."
