Tiie public spirited citizens of Port

place of tliei old one which was des
troyed by n storm last winter. The
people of Port Orford arc alive and
nwako to their opportunities nnd they
aro to be congratulated on the pro
gress they aro making in all lines.
TOTAL REGISTRATION FOR THE
PRIMARIES IS CONSIDERAB
LY LESS THAN IT WAS EX
PECTED TO BE.
Coquillc Sentinel: Tho total regis
tration for the county is 0,043 which
is fnr loss than was expected when
registration began on January
ThiB total is divided among the var
ious parties as follows: Republicans
!,507 or 58 per cent; Democrats 1,804
jr 27 per cent; Prohibitionists, 213 oi
lot quite 4 per cent; Socialists 510 oi
noarly 8 per cent; Progressives 11'
r a per cent; miscellaneous 4'J oi
per cent. Tho latter classifica
ion includes those registered as in
lopendent. With 030 voters Coquillr
las 333 Rcqublicans. 201 Democrats
13 Prohibitionists, 25 Socialists, 1)
Progressives and 21 miscellaneous
Warshfleld including Eustside hat
1,258 voters, of whom 72(5 aro Eopub-
.icans, 301 Democrats, 35 Prohibition
sts, 48 Socialists, 38 Progressive;
lin'd "30" miscellaneous.' Bandon witl
a total of 941, has 542 Republicans
100 Democrats, 44 Prohibitionists, 7(
Socialists, 4 Progressives and 70 mis
collaneous. Bandon thus has a GC
per cent Republican vote, the part
being proportionately stronger thai:
inywhero else in tho county. North
Bend has 530 votes. Of theso 230 aro
Republicans, 1G2 Democrats, 22 Pro
h'.bitionists, 42 Socialists, 45 Pro
jressives and 23 miscellaneous. This
makes her tho banner Progressive
town of the county, having more of
that party registered than Marsh
lleld nnd Bandon together. Myrtle
Point hns 403 votes. Of these 21!)
ire Republicans, 108 Democrats, 4(j
Prohibitionists, 31 Socialists, 7 Pro
gressives and 52 miscellaneous. Only
one voter in the county registered as
I Populist. The county precinctt
.vith over 100 voters registered aro
is follows: Coos River 141; Bunker
Hill 17G; Riverton 112; Prospor 130;
Two Mile 180; Norway 171; Catch
ing Creek 110; Sugar Loaf 12G; En
chanted 112. A notable fact shown
by the registration figures just given
aut is that tho two Bay towns of
Murshfield and North Bond, includ
ing Bunker Hill precinct, have 18tt
voters registered; whilo tho three
river towns of Bandon, Coquillo and
Myrtle Point havo 2,034; and yet to
road much of the matter written
about Coos county one would be war
ranted in concluding that settlement
and civilization outside the Bay cities
was entirely negligible; and that tho
Coquillo valley was to bo classed
along with South Slough or Kontuck
Inlet.

GOOD ROADS
NOT COSTLY
FIGURES SHOW THAT HARD
SURFACE ROADS ARE LESS
EXPENSIVE THAN IS GENER
ALLY THOUGHT.
That asphalt roads aro not as ex
pensive as is generally thought can
be shown by some facts and figures
drawn from the half mile of nsphalt
road south from the Bandon city lim
its at tho end of the plank road on
what was formerly Columbia Aven
ue. Just now when tho road bond
ing question is coming up, a few fig
ures will not come amiss.
Many have estimated the cost of
this stretch of asphalt road at from
$7,000 to $8,000, but the figures giv
en by Road Supervisor A. J. Counts
show that it cost just $4,275, and thero
would not he a harder piece of road
to build in Coos county than this one.
It. was built over a mud-hole whirii
was never passable until about the
first of August. The figures show
that the getting out oind hauling of
the rock and placing in the road cost
$2,275, the grubbing and clearing,
grading and putting in concrete cul
vert cost $1,000 and the asphalt cost
$400. This makes the total, of $1,275
as before stated. The road is as
phalted 10 feet wide and has a rocl
bed of one foot in depth over the en- J
tiro space asphalted, thus giving it
a foundation that will last for years
with heavy trafilc.
From this it will be seen that with
the $440,000 that is being asked for
for would built a largo amount of
hard surface road in this county.

OREGON CONGRESSMAN PRE
SENTS BILL TO PENSION SUR
VIVORS OF EARLY INDIAN
WARS.
Washington. D, C, May 11. The
old Indian fighter, who has been so
greatly praised for heroic deeds and
so greatly overlooked in the distribu
tion of material rewards, will at last
come into his own if a bill passes that
has been introduced by Representa
tive Hawley of Oregon, entitled "a bill
to provide pensions for the officers
and soldiers, of the Indian wars of the
United States whicli occurred prior
to January 1, 1892." To every Indian
fighter who sorved 30 days or longer
in any of those Indian campaigns the
Hawley bill would pay a pension of
$20 a month.
Mr. Hawley npponrod before the
committo on pensions and spoke in
support of his bill. Ho said that
about 1000 old Indinn fighters all told
would recoivo its benefits. He enter
tained tho committo with an insight
into Indian fighting of tho former
days'; ilio perils of the travel in the
far west anil how, when tho wagon
trains were attacked the Indinn
fightors would rally bravely to the
rescue.

ABOUT 32,000 ACRES IN SOUTH
1!RN COOS AND NORTHERN
CURRY EXCLUDED FROM U. S
TIMEBER RESERVE.
Coos Bay Timos: It is prosumoi'
that tho coal area south of Myrllr
Point, which 1ms been (ho bono ol
contention for several years, is om
braced in tlio tract of 32,000 acroi
in southern Coos and northern Cur
ry which has been ordered oxeludet
from the government timber reservi
and will be opon to entry after June
27. Most of the "coal area has boei
entered by Grants Pass men. Con
cerning it u Portland paper says: "
tract of approximately 32,000 acre
of land in southern Coos and northen
Curry counties has boon excludet
from the Siskiyou National Forest
according to an executive order fron
President Wilson, telegraphic notici
of which was received at the Port
land offices of the Forestry Depart
keeping with Tlio policy of the proscn
adnunist ration in withdrawing fror
forest reserves alj lands Hint aro suit
able for farms and what may he util
ized for agricultural purposes. Chic
Forostor Graves personally inspectoi
the Oregon reserves recently in o'rdo
to determino how that policy migh
be furthered in tins territory. Of tin
urea eliminated about 15,000 acre
are vacant public lands, segregate
into units of from 40 acres up. Th.
balance of tlio laud has already beei
onlered Uiider the general public lam
laws or the forest homestead law am
the occupant of claims thus establish
oil will not he disturbed. It is undor
stood that tho public lands involve!
will all be subject to settlement undo
tho homestead law ori and after Junr
21), but onirics at the local land ofllc
will not bo permitted until July 27
No information has yet boon receive
however, as to whether any of tin
public land lias been specially with
drawn or classified so as to proven
or restrict tho right of settlement am
entry. Tho lands were eliminate
from the National Foi-ont on the rc
commendation of the supervisor, N
I' . AlacDufT of Grants Pass, Or. It
under that a largo portion of tile hint
ib xiiueti uy ciimuie, topography ant
soil to thu form of agricultural u.s
common to. the coast country, but th
principal reason for the eliminntio
is the fact that only a very small pe
centago of the urea is permanently
suitwl to the establishment and main
tenance of a foroat, and the cost of ail
ministration, protection and man
agement of this small percentage oi
the land is too great to warrant tin
retention of the land under tho with
dra wal. The'lunds in nuestion are nil
situated in the Roseburg Land Dis
trict. The Roseburg office wil
doubtless soon be informed of tin
manner in which the settlement ant
entry may be made mid the restric
tions upon thu right or settlement am
entry."
