NEW NAME FOR THAT
The people of tho Twomile coun
try are considering the proposition
of changing tho name of the small
creek ' bearing that name and inci
dentally changing the name of the
locality that goes by the same name.
The words "Twomile", "Fourmile",
etc., do not sigify anything so far as
such names are concerned, as they are
neither two miles or four miles from
any place in particular.
R. M. Pressey, one of the residents
of Twomile called up tho Recorder of
fice Wednesday and stated that the
people of that community were prac
tically unanimous in their desires to
have the name changed and that they
were open to suggestions for a new
name. If anyone has a suggestion to
offer land they will send same to the
Recorder we will be glad to publish
the same and to help the people in
any 6ther way possible to carry out
It is understood that, the creeks
have never been officially named by
the state or government and tho only
thing to be done is to get the peo
ple to' agree on a new name and chris

came to us upon good authority, that
the U. S. Engineer refused to grant
a. permit for a solid bridge at the
place designated, holding that the
Chetco at that place was navigable,
nothing but a draw bridge could be
permitted. The rumor also says that
