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 claim the figures are entirely correct, although they say they arc approxi mate. Marshfield Record. IMPROVE ROADS R. E. L. Bediilion in Inter view at Roseburg. He Boosts Bandon. 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 county line. 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 admission will be for adults 25c children 15. NO DEAL YET? Manager Bediilion of Bandon Says Nothing Has Been Closed About Deal. I 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 Bay;. 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. Work is Progressing. The Eugene Guard of January 30th says: Reporting the Coos Bay cities lively and railroad work on the Eugene-Marshfield branch of the Southern -Pacific railway pro gressing rapidly, Thomas Dixon, superintendent of constructioo for the Mac Arthur-Perks company, con tractors, arrived home this forenoon from a trip to the Southern end of the road.

No. 6, which is to be 1500 feet long, is in over 245 feet and No. 7, which wiil be 4300 feet long is over half completed. The company also has a steam shovel and a good sized crew of men at work at the north approach to the site of the bridge which is to span an arm of Coos Bay to enter Marshfield. "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." M. G.

The Bandon High School banket ball team lost the ganio to North Bend Friday night by tho very cbse score of 2G to 30. Tho ganio was snnppy throughout and the result was in doubt right up to the very last. The North Bend team was much heavier than the Bnndon team, thus giving them an udvnntugo, but the local boys arc fuster and thus the game was made quite even. No Danger From Diphtheria Dr. Smith J.
