Do You Favor the Proposi
tion to be Presented to
the Council? Many Do.
What is tlio city council going to do
with the petition that is to he present
ed to thorn tomorrow evening asking
thatinoney ho appropriated for the
instalation of a fire alarm system and
that the chemical apparatus he im
proved so as to make it useful as well
as ornamental.
Economy, in keeping with the fin
ancial conditions of the present time
has been the fundamental idea ir
guiding the action of the present
present council and there can he no
doubt that it is a safe principle for
the conduct of any business, public or
private. There is a serious danger,
however, where economy is practiced,
of carrying it too far. Too much con
centration upon that one idea is what
makes conservative fanatics, (allow
ing us to coin a qhrase that at first
glance may seem ambiguous) and
that class of people are as detrimental
to a community as the spendthrifts.
To delay in taking the action re
quested by the business men at the
present would bo regrctable. We
are in the heart of a series of fires
that are doing thousands of dollars
damage to property and we are hope
lessly unable to cope with them. Out
side of the business district we have
practically no fire protection and the
only official relief that is in sight is
the proposal to wait until the city
election in June and vote on the prop
osition of buying a fire engine that
could be used in about one blaze in
We need immediato protection. At
the rate fires have been occuring dur
ing the past month, the coming like
period will see from $30,000 to $50,
000 worth of property destryed unless
we do something and 110 IT NOW.
The petition of the business men pro
poses the most sensible and feasible-
idc for tire protection that has been
sprung in Bandon. Will such good
common horse sense bo used in its
Word from Port Orford has been
received to the effect that the dock of
that port will be replaced as soon as
the work can be safely done. W.
White and E. J. Loney, the heaviest
stockholders are activein urging the
rebuilding at the earliest possible
date which will he in about two
months. It will be stronger than the
old one. Enough of the Old wharf
stands to allow the Hustler and simi
lar craft to unload cargoes.
The San Francisco Examiner of a
recent date mentions the fact that
the Bandon Coast Guard elation is the
only station on tin coast equipped
with a wireless outfit and that outfit
is the property of members of the
Frank B. Tichenor, formerly and in
the future of Port Orford but between
times of Portland, was in this city
Sunday spreading the doctrine of
"there's a bright future ahead for
Coos and Curry."

Aloha Club Holds Final Session Be
' fore Lent
Featuring a scene of decorations
Keeping wild the Valentine season
the Aloha Club held their last meeting
before the Lent season Trursday ev
cning at the 1. O. O.F. hall. Pro
grcssivc 500 furnished the entertain
ment of the evening. Mrs. L. P. Sor
onsen was awarded the Lnilioa' first
prize, a beautiful (lower basket, and
Mrs. O. A. Trowbridge the second,
cut glass dish. The first prize for
gentlemen, a handy picnic lunch set
went to Ilnrry Crain and W. E. Craino
won the second prize, a leather bound
writing pail.
Dainty refreshments were served in
the dining room which was artistical
ly decorated in red streamers and
strings of red hearts well set off by
dainty boquets of greens and flowers
A delightful touch was given to the
late luncheon by a concert of well se
lected Victrola music rendered by i
representative of Sabro Bros. Jewel
ry company.
.George Laird Experiences
Moist Weather and Returns
lo Oregon to Dry Out.
George Laird who recently went
to California is already back, saying
that he got "rained out." He reports
a high wind that did much damage in
San Francisco and Oakland to plate
glass, etc. and that in Eureka, where
he was during the heaviest part of
the storm, that at one time there was
a rainfall of one inch during a period
of forty minutes and that during the
niirht four inches of water fell. That
the Eel river was raised fifty-one ft
and that much damage was done in
the way of washing out farms, im
provemcnts and live stock, and that
one or two lives were reported lost:
That several miles of the new railroad
was washed out and covered by moun
tain slides and that one $33,000 rail
road bridge was also destroyed. But
notwithstanding the storm, Mr Laird
found the place to his liking and says
ho will go into business there as soon
as he can settle up his affairs here.
No One to Answer Correspondence
Relative to Bandon
Prof. Hopkins who has been the
honorary secretary of the commercial
cluli lias been receiving many com
munications asking for information
relative to Bandon and vicinity. He
is soon to be absent from town and
has neither the time nor the money
to answer such inquiries. The work
ing secretary of the association, E.
M. Treadgold also is soon to leave
town. He will go onto a homestead.
Prof. Hopkins justly thinks that the
commercial club should be financed
strongly enough to enable it to an
swer communications relative to Ban
don as a place of residence and for in
vestment. LaiiKhiis Centenarian Celebrates
One hndredand three years is quite
an -age for a man to acquire, even in
this healthful section of Oregon. But
James Haft of Ianglois lias seen a
century and three years in addition.
His one hundred third birthday was
yesterday and a number of his homo
friend . r.l as well as others from
Bandon and neighboring points, drop
ped in on him to help him properly
celebrate the event.

"Aunt Peabody of Peabodys
ville" to be Staged at the
Grand Tomorrow Night
If the Bandon playors who will ap
pear in a two act comedy-drama at
the Grand noxt Wednesday night
should half do justice to the text as
regards acting, it would keep the aud
ience who will come to see "Aunt Pea
body of Peabodysvillo" in a continu
ous uproar and laughter.
The play is chuck full of humorous
situations and Aunt Peabody, (Mrs
Anna Tucker) who visits her nieces
(Mrs. J. H. Smith and Delphi Lang-
lois) in the city finds that a lack of
knowledge of big town life is very em
harassing and somewhat strenuous.
Murium (Miss Ottilie Lewin) a visit
ing friend, conies in for a good share
of fun and will no doubt give a good
account ofhcvself.
The players have been rehersing
for a long time and are thoroughly
familiar with their respective parts
The show is given under the auspices
of the Women of Woodcraft
A special act will be presented by
Miss Webb, appearing in the Butter
fly dance. Music- on the Shores of
Italy. This is n clever little dance
and will receive hearty encores.
The admission price is within the
means of all. 15 cts for children and
25 cts for adults. A complete bill of
pictures will conclude whut promises
to bo an enjoyable evening's enter
tainment.. --
Hard times and the war scare arc
not putting much of a crimp into the
activities of the Grand Theatre and
now Manager Sellmer announces that
he has secured the Paramount pic
tures, to present to the movie fans of
Bandon. The Paramount pictures are
produced by the Famous Players Com
pany and feature the leading players
in the show worldsuch as Mary Pick-
ford, who draws a salary of $50,000
a year, Marguerite Clark, Maclyn Ar-
hucklc, Blanche Sweet, John Barry-
morc and Dustm Farnum. Pictures
of this class come high and before
making any permanent arrangement
with the company for their pictures
Manager Sellmer is going to give the
pictures a trial, presenting"The Squaw
Man", a six reel feature, next Tuesday
Februarys;!. Should the reception
given this picture prove satisfactory
i special feature by this company will
lie given every week. A two reel mag
azine for the machine at the Grand
las just arrived and will be installed
soon, which will male it possible to
run two reels without an intermission
letween. In the ordinary perform
ance this will mean one intermission
luring the show.
The following is the copy of a pe
tition being circulated around town.
We, the undersigned residents and
tax payers of tho city of Bandon, do
hereby petition the honorable may

That the city dispense with the city
attorney on a flat salary and only em

Pupils will Have Passage Contactrd
i For, Via Coos River
TheCoos River district has just
compieuftd a-consolidated school build
ing. The building has a concrete base
ment witli wood floor, is supplied
throughout with steam heat. There
are four rooms for school work, in
cluding a large assembly room which
will be used for general work for the
present. There are besides, a labor
atory, teachers' rest room and and an
The scholars will be taken to the
school by the Rogers boats from the
upper river and by William Bjorqvist
of Catching inlet, from his vicinity
nnd tho lower stretches of the river,
For the transportation, Mr. Bjor
qvist lias completed a new and com
modious boat, built particularly for
this kind of work. Mr. Bjorqvist is to
be janitor of the building and con
tracts for the carrying of the children
to anil from their study.
People who have insenected the
building state that tho district is to
be commended for its enterprise and
tho patrons of the school believe they
will have as fine and up-to-date a
ciftintry school as can be found in Ore
gon. The building is located at the
forks of the North and South Coos
rivers and will lie a prominent land
In May the extensive work which
lias received the attention of the Fed
eral government for years at Celilo
on the Columbia river involving the
the construction of what is known as
the Celilo canal will lie completed at
a cost ot the government of approxi
mately $5,000,000. The completion of
this work will enable boats from the
sea of capacity up to four hundred
tons to make the run inland to Lewis
ton, approximately five hundred
miles, while similar distances can be
reached on the unncr Columbia. The
completion of this work has been
considered as of vast importance to
the entire northwest and all the cities
located upon and tributary to tho Co
lumbia and Snake have joined in the
celebration plan. The initial feature
of tills celebration will lie hold ut

Office of Justice of the Peace at Lang
lois to be Decided in the Court
Joseph A. Cox of Ixinglois was in
Bandon Saturday. He has been jus
tice of the peace down there for some
time, since 1908, to be exnet, but says
that tilings are not running smoothly
down there in judicial matters these
days. At the November election, Mr
Smith, editor of the Langlois Leader,
defeated him for that office by 1(!
votes. The Pioneer of that bench,
however, appears to have decided to
abide by his official position under
the much mooted question of "When
is a judge a judge, and for how long
is he elected?" Now Mr. Smith bus
retained counsel at Gold Reach, who
make formal demand on Mr. Cox to
turn over the books, apparently as a
basis for bringing a replevin action.
It seems that orders and legal pro-
ces is being indulged in by both pre
tenders to tlie office.
Third Annual Ball in Dream
land Pavillion Proves Most
Successful Affair
Saturday evening the local chaptei
of tho L. O. O. M. held their third an
mini ball in the Dreamland pavillion
"How'dy Pap" accompanied tho glad
haiuLto all those who attended and it
would be putting it mildly to say that
the affair was a grand succWbs. Pret
tily gowned womcntadded a touch tr
the affair that is usually lacking
while the decorations were especiall
appropriate to the Valentine season
Streamers of red and white, the colon
of the lodge, intermingled witl
strings of hearts were aranged ovei
the floor in such a way as to form i
square over the heads of tho dancers
The moonlight effect for the two feat
ure waltzes however, was the crown
ng achievement of the evening. A
huge artificial moon, half hidden bj
decorative trees, gave the most artis
tic arrangement that has ever bcei
presented in Bandon.
Besides being a delightful affair foi
tho guests, the dance also proved r
financial success. Delicious punch and
dainty wafers were served during tin
Eacli session of the legislature
there is introduced some new bill reg
ulnting the game law, and some- oi
them in various forms anil conditions
pass. This year there lias been ot
last accounts, six bills introduced in
the House, regulating or ot.hewise
pertaining to the game laws. Coos
county, each session contributes net
share to the endless chain of lawmak-
ng. witli a bill regulating the season
for sea crabs. Representative Pie.-ce
of Coos and Curry lias come forum d
with a hill, in the interests of econo
my to curtnil the expenses incurred
by the state for the prevention of hu-
ionic plague.
There was shown by the last houcc
cullender received by us, 4711 bills in
troduced in the house, and the session
is nearly three fourths over. Bill pro
viding for tho regulation of the liquor
traffic passed the liouso witli only two
votes against it, and they were both
from Multnomah county- However
Hie senate appears to bo hostile to the
ill and threatens many things to it.
We note from the "House Calender"
that Representative Barrow of Coog
ounty Introduced Bill No. 118, fixing
the legal marriage age of boys at 21
earn und for girls at 18 yearn. I he
till wan indefinitely postponed on

3 Contested game between
3 schools
Things do not always run as smooth
as planned, as the Bandon Basketball
team found out when they went to
Myrtle Point lo play the quintette of
that town Friday night. They re
turned Sunday morning bearing the
news of a 54 to 13 defeat. Numerous,
explanations ore being circulated to
account for the awful drubbing but
the main cause seems to be one "Ka
ty" Miller of questioned eligibility,
who despite the protest of Coacli
Quigley, played center for the Myrtle
Pointers and scampered oyer the floor
like an unmolested kitten, incidental
ly scoring about half the points for
his team.
The ganUi has been protested on
tho grounds that Miller waa not elig
ible to take part in tho contest and
theprotest will be heard and decided
by tho Coos County Atlilotic Associa
tion when it meets in Coquille next
Saturday. It appears that Miller had
not been in regular attendance in
school, appearing at the building only
at such times as slack periods in the
logging camps would allow him to be
in town.
Bandon played ragged ball and did
not iiave a look in at any stage of the
game. Leslie Pullen from the scoring
point, put up tliu best game for the
visitors, gaining a toUil of 7 points
out of 13 points, but his floor work
was very poor as compared with his
past performances: Windsor seemed
unable to get started and the rest of
the team showed very poor form
on the rough floor. To put it i:i
plain words, the unexpected appear
ance of Miller on the floor "got Ban
don's goat".
.Should lianilon lose the protust
iver this, game their hopes for the ,
championship are not altogether gone,
for Mnrshfield took Coquille into camp
Friday night, thereby taking the coun
ty seat aspirants out of the lead. The
'ocal boys have ' four games yet to
olay, two on their own floor and two
iway from home. To make a crcdit
ibie showing at the end of the season
they must win three out of these four
rnd i twill take all four of the games
to put them at the head of tho
league. Marshfield, now heading the
league, lias three games yet to play
mil have the decided advantage of
playing two of them on their homo
During the game Friday night there
was but one substitution, Ivan PuUen
for Stoltz at the beginning of the se
cond half.
