COUNTY ATTORN 12 Y OPPOSES
BONDING OF PORT
County Attorney L. A. Liljequist, in
a speech at the banquet of the Coos
County Bar Association, Wednesday
talked against the bonding of the
Port of Bandon as well as the Port
of Coos Bay.
G. J. Treadgold, attorney for the
Port of Bandon, and Cassius R. Peck,
attorney for the Port of Coos Bay,
both made addresses in which they
took h.uo with Mr. Liljeqvist and
showed how the whole people would
be benefited by the raising and spend
ing of money by bonds as the govern
ment would duplicate the amount
raised, thus bringing in large sums of
money to be distributed for labor, ma
terial and other commodities in the
community as well as to make per
manent improvements in the harbor.
The street commissioner has fin
ished a railing along the temporary
sidewalk from Bandon avenue up the
lull to the Tracy residence, eliminat
ing the danger of a bad fall by some
of the small school children.

.MAY I2STABLISH A LAIKiK
CAMP MEETING TABI2ILVU LK
Geo. II. Smith, proprietor of the
Sunset City addition to Bandon, an
notices that he has plans under way
which will in all probability muter
ialize in the establishment of a big
tabernacle and camp meeting
grounds down in his addition.
Mr. Smith is negotiating with lead
ing members of the Christian church
in Oregon with a view having them
make Bandon beach their permanent
camp gounds, erecting the Inrgi
tabernacle and holding camp meet
ings, lectures, etc. during the slim
mer mouths. Mr. Smith says that
if the plan is brought to a focus,
there will be from three to five
thousand people of this denomination
from variou arts .i the state,
ij idon uriiK u,c sumniei and they
will stay from three weeks to three
In this connection the Record i
would suggest that should such a
plan be carried out and a tnbornacle
of such large dimensions be built, it
would be an excellent place for the
holding of a chaluuqua every summer
There is already a movement on foot
for the establishment of a chntnuqua
and it would be an excellent idea for
the promoters to work in conjunction
with Mr. Smith for the big tabernacle
and thus two great purposes can be
served and lie the means of making

At Annual Coos
Coos county attorneys established
a new record at their regular annual
meeting and banquet held at the Bax
ter hotel, Coquille, Tuesday night in
the fact that it was the first dry ban
quet held in the history of the asso
ciation. This does not mean that the
attorneys have all turned prohibition
ists but in keeping with the will of
the people who voted the state dry at
the fall election, the expounders of
the law have decided to live in ac
cordance with that wish.
Another factor that may have had
something to do with it is that Co
quille is a dry town and there was
nothing in the wet line to be had.
The banquet was well attended,
there being about 40 members pres
ent, including Judge Coke, as well as
a few invited guests,some of the of
ficials of Coos county and a few
All of the Bandon attorneys except
F. J. Feeney were present and report
a fine time.
