TIONS OF LAW
City Attorney Troadgold presented
a report to the City Council Wednes
day night to the effect that J. W
Coach and John Ilerron of the Clul
saloon and Geo. Button of the Office
saloon had been convicted of giving
liquor to minors, and the Club saloon
of, the more serious charge of giving
liquor to female minors, and asked
that on these charges and convictions
the licenses of these saloons be ri;
The charter, however, provides that
the proprietor of condemned saloons
must be given an opportunity to ap
pear and defend themselves, and res
olutions were presented and passed
designating Wednesday, October 7th,
as tho time for taking action.
The City Attorney stated that m
view of the situation as it stands
and tho act that the parties concern
ed had been convicted, it was the
duty of tho Council under the char
ter to revoke these licenses and this
action will undoubtedly be taken at
tho time of the hearing.

The third annual Coos and Curry

best fair ever held in this section of
Oregon. Many good amusements nnd
concessions have been provided, and

racing program. The live stock and
agricultural exhibits as well as th
educational exhibit will be big features
of this years fair.
There will be about $3,200 in prem
iums distributed as follovs: $1600

live stock, and agriculture; $500 for

I con a great success and has stipiu
lated the raising of better stock nnd

Coquille Man Dies.
Coquille It. II. Smith, for several
years a well-known resident of Co
quille, died hero after a lingering ill
ness. Ho suffered tho loss of n leg
some years ago and although a very
large man was able to get around
well on n crutcli and oven mastered
ine art 01 driving an auto, lie was
engaged in the abstract business and
was an attorney. He was a leader of
the Christian Scientists here. He is
survived by a wife. Coos Bay Times,
Judge Benson Answers West.
Portland ''Your alleged protest, is
so manifestly an insincere, shameless
listortion of facts for cheap political
purposes, that if you had not shroud
d your base motives behind tho pow
er of your exalted office, I should have
gnored you altogether."
An tnus juuge u. i. Uenson re
plies to the letter which Governor
West wrote in issuing to Benson n
certificate of nomination for tho Su
prcnio Judgeship. Tho West letter
has never been received by Judge
Benson, but he takes occasion to bo-
ieve that there was such a letter
written as West has never disclaimed
the published reports. Benson, in
his answer to the Governor says that
there was not a precinct in the stnto
from which errors had been reported
which had not been recounted except
tho remote precinct, Sixes, in Curry
county. The Judge quotes the Gov
ernor as saying that 15 or 10 ballots
were thrown out in Sixes. There are
o;ily eighteen registered Republican
oters in the precinct and there wore
igl!1 -n Republican votes counted.
If there were ballots thrown out they
must have been Democratic votes and
would have no bearing on tiie Republi
can result. In any event, says Ben
son, if West has any reliable infor
mation from Sixes it could only come
from someone who secured it in vio
lation of the law, as the ballots are
supposed to be sealed, and if anyono
tampers with sealed ballots they arc
In conclusion, Benson states that if
ho had agreed to extend tho timo of
nvestlgatlon to September 22 ho
would not have been able to hnvo his
name on tho November ballot, us the

CASES NOW IN COURT

ANI) OREGON AVENUE IM
PROVEMENTS MAY BE
Steps are being taken by the city
council and the property owners in
both the Oregon Avenue and First
Street cases to come to a settlement
and stop the litigation in both instan
ces. It is understood that, particular
ly in the First Street case, the prop
erty ownerb have signified their will
ingness to accept certain terms pro
viding the city will accept other con
ditions and it appears now that the
matter will be adjusted outside of the
courts to tho satisfaction of all con
cerned. Tho proposition will come up at the
next session of the council and will
probably be finally disposed of at that
time. If this case is settled it is like-
the Oregon Avenue case will be
settled in the same manner.

Mr. Sabro states that when the war

began to make runs on tho banks, to

prepare for a great calamity. Ho
says that so for both Sweden and
Norway are remaining neutral and
will probably continue although Nor
way sympathizes with England and
he allies, and Sweden with the Ger

that Sweden might join with the Ger
