Tho Geo. W. Moore Lumber Com
pany of this place has taken over (the
mill of the Toledo Lumber Co. at To
ledo, and arc operating it at present.
It was reported that they would move
the Bandon mill to that place also,
but that is not the present plan of
the company. It is more probable
that, should tho lumber market im
prove, the company will operate
both mills. The mill at Toledo has
only about half tho capacity of the

MINER DOES FAIRLY WELL
AT HEAD OF SIXES RIVER
Marshfield Record: Thomas F.
Barlee, a miner who has been seeking
treasure in tho district near the head
waters of the Sixes River, arrived in
tho city last night after a live month's
stay. Mr. Barlco in that time took
$700 worth of gold from a ledge he
found and worked for about four
months. The ledge is pencok quartz
and the wholo amount was secured
by- roasting tho quartz. Mr. Barlee
will purchaso winter supplies and re
turn soon, after having a short va
cation in civilization. In the district
where he is located, the Smith Broth
ers, of ths city, have mined $1700
from placer diggings during the
summer and Bert Harris has a cinna
bar ledge doveloped for which ho has
been offered $12,000. Tho minerals
are found on Shlnbonc, Rusty and
Benson creeks and tho altitude In not
high, tho winter season being appro
prluto for work. Tlwro are a num.

'(From Coos Bay Times)
London, Sept. 4 The Times corres
pondent from Vietto yesterday indi
cates that the Germans arc less than
twenty-five miles from Paris. All
day he Germans right wing was fur
iously forcing its way toward Paris,
battering away at the rear of tho
retreating French. At Triel, Senlis
and Croty En Valis the cannonading
was so furious it broke windows at
Chantilly, 15 miles north of Paris.
London, Sept. 4 Another dispatch
to tho Times from Beauzais, 40
miles northwest of Pans, says tho
Germans entered Clermont, 35 miles
from Paris, at 7 o'clock Wednesday
The County Court did not let any
contract for the building of the Town
ship Line road, but instead appointed
A. J. Counts as special supervisor for
the work and ho will work under the
direction of County Road Master P.
It is the intention of the County
Court to go right ahead with the road
and it is hoped to have the mosto'frtfe;mattors. looked into as well ns the
the work completed before the -wet
season sets in.
This will be a piece of good news
to all Bandon people and all who
live south of town, as the road con
necting Bandon with Curry county
has been in very bad shape for some
time, and it is one of the most trav
eled roads in the county. There are
thousands of tics and poles hauled
over this road every month, nnd in
fact since the Moore mill shut down
this business has been one of the
main supports of the town.
About $25,000 worth of tics, poles,
match wood, etc., arc brought to Ban
don over this road every month, and
in adition it is tho main thoroughfare
for down the coast traffic. All the
California auto traffic must either go
over this road or make tho long trip
over tho mountains and then down the
Willamette Valley and back over the
mountains again to get to the coast.
Travelers from California who
come up the coast say the worst road
they encounter is that from Gold
Beach to Bandon, and the twelve miles
south of Bandon aro tho worst of
this stretch of road. By this it can
be readily seen how important it is
to have something done.
By running tho road down the
township line, not only is a better
grade secured, but considerable dis
tance is cut o(T between hero and the
Curry county line.

It is reported that Germany has sent
an ultimatum to Holland. No con

says it seems that the German at

force of German cavalry advancing
on Champagn has been repulsed.

reliable source says that seven Ger

If everything is satisfactory the
company will take the bonds at once
and tho money will be forthcoming.
If the company fails to take them
and fulfill' their part of the contract

per cent of their bid, which amounts
to a little over $2,400, and which is

SENTATIVE IN BANDON
C. G. Gustavson of Des Moines
Iowa, representing the Merchants
Trade Journal of that city, was in
Bandon yesterday and today in the
interests of his paper, and ho is al
so working on a proposition for a
legislative bill which is before Con
gress to compel mail order houses
doing business in a community to
pay taxes on the amount of business
done, to assist in keeping up the
schools, roads and other improve
ments of tho districts in which they
The bill was introduced by W. II.
Hinebaugh of tho 12th Illinois district
and is known as House Bill No. 5308.
Mail order houses are, of course,
fighting tho bill with all their might,
but Mr. Gustavson is of tho opinion
that it will pass anyway as all local
merchants of the United States will
certainly stand back of it.

morning, at tho age of 74 years.
Mr. Dodge waa closely identified
with the pioneer days of this section
of Oregon and was probably us fam

and Curry counties as unyone that
In 1898 he compiled a history of
the two counties in which he gave a
rnphic review of tho advancement
of the country up to the time tho
book was issued, and a brief history

CAMP WILL NOT SHUT
DOWN YET AWHILE
A rumor that the Selley & Ander
son camp would shut down in a few
days has been denied by parties in a
position to known. A few choppers
were laid off recently, which led to
tho rumor. This does not signify
anything except that the camp has
a large amount of logs ahead of the
mill and it is not necessary to oper
ate quite so rapidly for awhile. The
rumor that the Lyons-Johnson mill
was also going to close down is with
out foundation. The lumber market
is not very good at present, but it is
the intention of the mill to operate
right along, notwithstanding.
