With Bandon Unrepresented Athletic Coun
ty Assocalion Decides Contest Against
Local Basket Ball Team
Without n Bandon representative
present at the meeting tho Coos Coun
ty Athletic Assocntion, which met in
Coquille Saturday morning, decidctl
the protested frame between Bandon
and Myrtle Point in favor of the lat
ter and thereby outstcd the local High
School basketball team from its
rightful position of second place in
the league. Mnrshfield . won 'the
championship by, defeating North
JJcnd 41 to, 11 at North Pond, Friday
Previous to tho meeting Coach
Quigley was asked to withdraw his
protest but refused. Owing to ac
cident to tho Charm Mr. Quigley .did
not reach Coquille Saturday morning
until nftor most of the business of
the assoccation had been transacted
tho protest having been decided. In
defense of their action the other mem
bers of the nssocationstntcd that as
Marshfield held tho championship
without dispute, that Ihcy could not
nee that it made a great dcul of dif
ference how the contest was decided.
Owing to the great rush on the part
of the bay delegates, very little was
accomplished at Saturday's meeting
outside of milking, final arrangements.!
for tho oratorical cotcst to be held at
North Bend. No definite date was
set for tho annual track .and field meet
which will be held in Marshfield du
ring the latter part of May. Two
weeks before tho county meet, when
ever thut will be, Bandon, Coquillc
and Myrtle Point-will hold a triangu
lar meet at Myrtle Point!
Baseball in the high school is not
yet assured, for up to the present
time only Bandon and Coquillc in the
interscholnstic league and tho River
ton nine have signified their intention
of playing. Coquille has no grounds
upon which to practice or piny games
but will bring a team down to play
Bnudon on the local diamond, Bandon
is in little better shape for tho ball
grounds hero will not be in condition
for somo time .to come. .
The action of the association 'in de
ciding tho contested game puts Marsh
field in tho load, Myrtle Point second,
Bundon and Coquille tied for third
placo and North Bend in the cellar.

The Puget Sound Bridge and dredg

Coquillc river without waiting for the
supreme court decision as regards the
legality of tho Port.

Mrs. Stella Streubor, wife of Louis
Streubcr of Prosper died early Mon
day morning of quick consumption.
She was 27 years of age, having been
born January lst1888. She was a
daughter of Win, Hansen, one of the
old settlors of this vicinity. She has
a sister, Alia Hansen, attending the
Bandon high school,. Her husband
was recently injured in a logging
camp and is not yet recovered from
his injuries. Funeral services were
held at Prosper this forenoon with
Rev. Hnbberly ofllciatlng. Burial
was in Bandon in the city cemetery.
The afllicted family have the sympa
thy of all in their untimely bereave
ment. T. W. McClosky of Myrtle Point
is in Bandon today on business.
Examines Stomach and Tissues and Finds
Evidence of Use of Poison
Chemist E. P. W. Harding of Port
and, who is a graduate in pharmacy
at O. A. C. and for five years since his
graduation has been an instructor
there in pharmacy, toncology and
pharmaceutical analysis, analyzed
the part of tho stomach and intestines
of Arthur Russell, deceased of Myr
tle Point This is the man on the
charge of poisoning whom, Mr. and
Mrs..Clnrence Russell are now held in
the jail at Coquille.
The chemist examined the mater
ial for volatile poisons, alkaloids and
mctafic poisoning. No truco of any
poisonous material -was foutuL except
arsenic. Tho amount of arsenic re
covered was small. The amount of ma
terial given to them to examine under
the tests of tho chemist was small and
consequently no Inrge amount of pois
on could be expected to be found.
In the earth examined (which came
from beside the grave) an extremely
minute arsenic mirror was found.
"From present indications," says
Prof, Harding, "I should judge the
person must have been given at least
one half gram but until I have ex
amined tho bones I could not make it
more definite. I will be ublo to make
:i more definite statement after cx
aininig them."
He further testified that judging
from tho quantity of arsenic recovered
from the tissues exnmined, poisoning'
by arsenic probably" caused the death
of tho person from whom tho tissues
were taken.
Russell Secures Bonds
S. F. Reed and Mr. Warner of Myr
tle Point, gave n bond of $!!,000 for
Clarence Russell, under charge of
poisoning his brother but bonds have
not yet been secured for Mrs. Russell.
Attorneys for the defense clnim
to" have discovered new evidence that
will secure' the immediate releaso of
the Russells and have asked for a
postponmcnt of the hearing tha't was
set for March 22nd.
A Good Fair
A letter to the Recorder from a vis
itor nt the San Francisco fair says
that the fair is much better than they
had expected but that there was the
usual amount of graft.
Roy Miller, supt. for the Puget
Sound Bridge and Dredging company
was in Bnndon Monday going aver
the shore work with the foreman, Ole
Haarbarg. They report finding nat
ural accomodation for all material to
be removed from tho river. There will
therefore be no expense for bulkheads

Annual Recital of Mrs. Geo. Geisendorfer
Greeted by Large Attendance. Special
Attractions Make Good Impression
Three hours of music was what
Mrs. Goo. Geisendorfer treated her
i. Hi's ts to at hef annual recital held
held last Friday evening at the Or
plieum. Three hours is quite a while
for the average person to sit and lis-
tenten to piano music but the pro
gram had been well prepared, the pu
pils exhibited themselves and their ac
complishments to good effect and the
evening passed off very pleasantly.
Five hundred invitations had been
sent out and there was a generous res
ponse. The Orpheuni was filled with
a ropresetative audience, every seat
having an occupant from tho orches
tra seats in front to the rear of the
The program consisted of "piano
music, enlivened with some special
features to spice the evening's offer
ing. The latter consisted of vocal se
lections by a double quartette con
sisting of Harold Quigley, Ralph Dip-
pel, Ernest Sidwell, Rev. C. Mayne
Knight, H. E. Boak, Roy Corson, Ray
Watkins and E. D. Webb. They ap
peared in a song entitled "Until the
Dawn" and as an encore they respond
ed with "A Plainsman's Song." The
call from the enthusiastic audience
was -insistent but they refused to re
spond with n third selection.
Mr. Wolfram Schmcdding, recent
ly from Germany, a flute soloist of un
usual talents, appeared in two places
on the program, and both times was
pleased to respond to encores. He pre
sented "La Traviata, Concert Waltz"
winch set involuntary fee to beating
time all through the audience, and
"Introduction theme with Variations;
Home Sweet Home" which brought to
many an auditor a flood of half for
gotten memories.
Mrs. Geisendorfer also appeared to
very good advantage; twice as the ac
companist to Mr. Schmcdding and
once, in a very difficult piece, played
with the left hand, "Finule de Lucia
di Lammermoor" by Letchetizky and
her presentation was wurmly applaud
ed. All of the young pupils of Mrs.
Geisendorfer acquitted themselves
very nicely and each was given a gen
erous measure of applause. The
cheerful fnco of Master Wesley Phen
ninger, won. approbation as he appear
ed for his turn at the piano and he fur
ther distinguished himself by leaving
his music behind ns he passed behind
the curtains. Errol McNaip also got
tired of waiting for his compapion in
a duet which followed the solo he
Jiimself presented and went out to
fetch him, both being diversions in
the regular program that were appre
ciated by the audience.

Superintendent Baker Conducts Institute
Bandon. Randolph to Have Two
Teachers After This Week
County Superintendent Raymond
Baker is in Bandon todny conducting
a ono day teachers' institute for the
benefit of Bandon pedagogues. The
session is at the high school building
and Mr. Baker is assisted in the work
by Dr.(H. E. Sheldon of the state uni
versity extension department. Dr.
Sheldon will also address the Palroii
Tcacher association in the high school
auditorium this evening on tho tiub
ject of "Education and Children in the
Modern English Novel."
In addition to Messrs. Baker and
Sheldon, Supervisor Golden was in
attendance. Teachers from near by
districts were present to profit by the
discussion. This is the first of a ser
ies of one day intitutes to be held in
Coos county. One will be held in Co-
quile Wednesdny, at Myrtle Point
Thursday and nt Marshfield Friday.
Speaking of his work through the
county, Superintendent Baker says
an important part is occupied by the
proposed consolidation of several ru
ral school districts. Catchings and
South Inlet are nearly ripe for this
change and consolidation will bo put
in effect there in n very short time.
Each of these consolidated districts
will have about one hundred students
enrolled, now divided among three dis
tricts each.
Consolidation will enable the 6is
tricts to maintain two or more teach
ers and to put into practical work the
graded school system, systematizing
ancyitaiidarnizing the scheme for giv
ing children an education. In a larg
er school the competition with others.
will allure the child on to take more
interest and learn faster.
The school at Randolph, visited by
Supt. Baker, yesterday, has boon try
ing on eight grades and one year of
high school work with only one teach
er. Tho teacher was willing and capa
ble but found the task too great and a
second teacher will bo added to the
force in this district next Monday.
An Editor's Outing
Editor Young and familyof tho Co
quille Vnlloy Sentinel were among
the visitors from the county scat who
spent Sunday on Bandon's famous
beach. Although juvenile in name,
Mr. Young is elderly, hns served his
time in all the phases of the printing
and publishing game just as his life
has extended from his birthplace by
the Atlnntic to his present abode near
the Pacific. Mr. Young may be reck
oned one of tho sages of the Coos
county press. He prints an ext v good
paper and here'3 hoping ho may con
tinue to publish it for many year. to
C. II. Gram, state factory inspector
of factories, from Portland, was in
town yesterday and today and all of
the factories of Bandon were lined up

The funeral of Alfred Johnson was
one of the largest in attendance ever
held in Coquille. A procession more
than half a mile long, composed of
friends and lodge members from all
over Coos county escorted tho body
from tho Methodist church, South, to
the Masonic cemetery.
Reverend Clevcs preached the ser
mon at the church. The Coquille
Blue Lodge of Masons had charge of
the services at tho grave.. These ser
vices were under the direction of L. A.
Liljeqvist. Forty members of the Pa
cific comniandory, Knights Templur,
in full regalia acted as escort.
A profusion of flowers nd wreaths
were in evidence both at church and
at tho grave. A special train carried
people from Marshfield to and from
Coquillo to attend the services.
Incidents Relative to Enforced Wait in
Getting Out to Sea
Any one who took a stroll up and
down the water front during the past
few days would have been justified
in imagining that Bandon was, con
sidering the times, an inuisually busy
spot. Three ocean going boats were
lying beside the dock with the usual
run of smaller boats. Tho surmise
would have been in purt justified for
all of the boats were loaded with local
products and were only waiting favor
able condition to get, out to sea. Owing
to a combination of circumstances they
were four days waiting for a chance
to get over tho bar. Tho tides, during
'tlie'present week, are unusually low
and the water at the mouth of the
river was so rough the boats were
not able to take advantage of what
water there was.
Twice cacli twentyfour hours the
tug Klihyam would make a trip of
inspection, take soundings nnd return
with the cheerful intelligence that for
another twelve hours' nt least there
was "nothing doing".
Eurly this morning a fog, cRtne
drifting in from the ocean, nnd the
breakers subsided. After the tug had
duly mndo tho inspection the Eliza
beth and the Brooklyn were in turn
towed to sea. The Speedwell still
waits and tho weather wiso says she
may have to stay until the end of the
week when the almanack promises
better-things in the way of higher wa
ter. "Yes, its bad, this waiting around",
said an officer of the Brooklyn, "But,
at that its not so bad as loading by a
cable from the shore. Believe, me,
I've seen them cables break. I saw
one of them break with a load of a
couple dozen ties. Two of the ties
floated and wo got them ugain. Red
wood, you know. Some of that red
wood is so light you can pack a tie
under each arm and walk right off
with it. Then again somo of it weighs
like railroad iron.
"Yes, its tough on the passengers,
wuiting around, too. But believe me
its cheaper to wait hero than in Fris
co and more pleasant than out nt sea.
Wait 'till they get down ''below nnd
get to paying everything thut is usked
of them. They'll wish they were back
in Oregon.' '
From which, we take it, there is
consolation to bo found in anything,
even in being bar-bound.

Exchange of Exclusions.
Tho steamer Coquillc brought up u
load of excursionists Sunday to spend
the day on the beach. They were fu
vored with one of those balmy days
that Coos county knows so well how
to produce when she sets about it. and
they had an enjoynble time On tho
Miy down the river they pnssed tho
steamer Dispatch with a party of
Bandon people on their way to Co
piiHe to attend the funeral of Alfred
Johnson. Thus honors were even in
the matter of exchanging visits, and
the earth was steadied in its orbit,
being prevented from becoming over
balanced nnd tipping to one side
through the shifting of population.
The Speedwell, the Elizabeth and
the Brooklyn are all undergoing- a
spring overhauling in the Bnndon
harbor. Each has received a fresh
coat of white paint and all have been
waiting for a favorable tide to clear
