TIIR RACE FOR A MINE" AT
THE GRAND WEDNESDAY,
A hair raising race between an au
tomobile and a train and a desperate
struggle at the edge of a cliff, are two
of the exciting features of the Kalem
drama, "The Race For the Mine,"
which will be shown at the Grand
Theatre Wednesday, June 3rd.
Morton & Porter, owners of the
Sunset Mining Co., receive a letter
from M. B. Parker offering them an
option on a valuable borax mine.
Baxter, an unscrupulous rascal, learns
of this ofTer by underhand mcnas and
determines to take advantage of it.
The partners learn of his rascality,
however, and Morton goes in pursuit.
Baxter takes the train to Haynes'
Statin, the home of the mine owner.
Morton misses the train, and jumping
into a racing auto he follows the
train at top speed. How Baxter in
his anxiety to purchase the option
over-reaches himself, and how Morton
rescues the girl from a bandit, there
by winning a wife, in addition to foil
ing Baxter, is shown in a rousing cli

Councilman W. C. Sellmer
Next Friday evening the voters of Bandon will
choose tickets from which will be elected men to manage
our municipal affairs for the next year, and it is time for
the serious consideration of who these men are to be.
The city is growing rapidly 'and many difficult prob
lems wiU -have to be faced by the new council problems
that will need careful, capable men to handle. Should
the state go dry in the fall election, as is not improbable,
it will take rare business management to adjust the city's
affairs to the new conditions without causing temporary
hardships. And should the water system be taken over,
and later the electric system, there will be more need of
practical business methods in the conduct of the city's
business. From whatever angle the situation is viewed
this fact is faced: we need a business administration now
as never before.
It is no time for petty politics or experiments, and the
people should, and undoubtedly will, choose candidates
solely on their merits and past performances.
, Candidly, The Recorder considers Geo. P. Topping
the best man put forward for mayor. His ability along
lines of public endeavor has been proven heretofore. He
is possessed of good business judgement, is exceptionally
practical in all that he does, and has the courage of his
convictions. He believes in a greater and better Ban
don and will put in his best efforts to that end.
For councilmen we have presented the men whose
names appear above because of their practical ideas, and
the fact that they have proven the value of their business
judgement in their own personal affairs. They are uni
formly progressive and believe that the city should get
a dollar's value for every dollar spent. They will, we be
lieve, conduct the city's affairs as carefully as they do
their own. They are all taxpayers and excellent citizens
in every respect.
The office of City Recorder is a most important one.
A trained man in this capacity may mean the saving of
thousands of dollars yearly to a city. In Mr. Kausrud we
have a trained man, and one who has spent much time and
study in perfecting himself to better fill the position he
holds. He is courteous, conscientious and able. He should
he returned by all means.

ONE THOUSAND PERSONS
DIE IN ATLANTIC WRECK
Quebec, Canada, June 1. Of over
1000 persons who went to their death
Saturday with tho sinking of the Em
press of Ireland, the bodies of more
than 300 have been recovered. A
search is being conducted for others,
and the living, estimated at 355, aro

LARGEST ATLANTIC LINER
IS MODERN WONDER.
New York, May 21. The Hamburg
American liner Vaterland, the largest
ves'sel afloat, arrived here today or.
her maiden voyage. She was given
a noisy welcome. The vessel sailed
14 and averaged 23.4 knots.
A flotilla of tugs struggled with tho
Vaterland four hours before she was
convoyed to her berth. Meanwhile
navigation on the North 'river was
practically tied up.
The vessel made 594 miles the last
day of her trip over.
While closely resembling her fam
ous sister ship, the Imperator, the
Vaterland exceeds her in all dimen
sions. The new queen of tho seac
measures 950 feet, or nearly five city
blocks, in length. She is 100 feet in
width and has a tonnage of 58,000.
Not only docs tho Vaterland eclipse
all previous records for size, but she
represents tho very latest idea of ar
tistic elegance and mechanical won
ders. Some of the leading decorat
ors of Europe were engaged to de
sign and furnish her magnificent sa
lons, dining rooms, grand hall and
suites. The main sal6n is the largest
hnll of its kind ever constructed or.
shipboard. The woodwork is of sol
id mahogany. There is an open fire
place and natural light floods the hall
tfirough a number of drawing room
windows. The hangings consist of
almost priceless tapestry, and orien
tal rugs of the finest weaves cover the
The main dining room resembles
the banquet hall of a great hotel. It
will accomodate 800 diners at one
time. Tho great size and steadiness
of the vessel have mado it possible
to furnish the dining room with mov
able chairs in place of the swivel
seats attached to the floors, common
to ocean steamships. In addition to
tjio main dining room the big ship
has three restaurants.
Everything on the Vaterland has
been designed to look as much like a
sumptuous hotel and as little like a
ship as human ingenuity can do it.
The windows are shaped and curtain
ed 'like a private house. Elevators
take the passengers from one deck
to another. For the millionaires the
staterooms are as beautiful as the
first decorators of the world can make
them. The second cabin has its spec
ial social dining rooms, lounging and
smoking rooms. The third cabin also
has its separate public rooms and its
staterooms are built to accomodate
two and four persons. in tho steer
age of the Vaterland the passengers,
instead of being placed in one large
room as on most ships, have separate
cabins, arranged for families and
Every conceivable, precaution has
been taken in the construction and
equipmont of the Vaterland to assure
the safety as well as the comfort of
the pasengcrs and crew. An inno
vation is a complete fire department,
with a system of signals covering ev
ery part of the ship, and a staff of
fire fighters recruited from tho fire
departments of German cities.. Her
powerful wireless apparatus will en
able her to keep in touch with land
continuously. She carries a commo
dore and four captains.
