Congressman Hawley Writes Encouraging
Letter. Relative to Location of Cape
Blanco Wireless
Tho commercial club Is mnkitiR
Borne progress in the matter of secur
ing the government wireless station
for Bandon ns is indicated by a letter
received by Secretary J. W. Mast
from Congressman W. C. Hawley.
This is in response to a telegram sent
tho congressman by the club several
weeks ago.
Congressman Hawley says ho has
taken the matter up with the depart
ment. He says the reason the wire
less station is to bo moved from Capo
Blanco is that a site may be secured
more convenient for obtaining sup
plies and getting into communication,
etc.. He thinks that the bluff south of
Bandon offers a very acceptable site.
Secretary Mast is requested to write
the department giving information
as to how well tho requirements of tho
department can be complied with.
The donation of a suitabid sue 10 thy
department would be especially at
tractive as tho government has only
a limited fund to devote to this pro
ject. The area required would lc in
dimensions about .100 feet by 800 feet
or about six acres. Tho government
would like a larger area up to 20
ucres. The prospective site must have
a permanently unobstructed frontage
on tho ocean. Tho government wib
consider only proposals for locatior
where an absolutely good title in fee
felmple can be given. Mr. Hawley con
pludes his letter with tho remark
that there is a feeling in the depart
ment that tho9ridcfl-0utl,ofB:,,ulor-would
make an ideal location for the
Will Start Box Factory.
Two gentlemen from Marshfield
are now in this section looking over
conditions with a view to starling a
box factory on Sixes River near the
bridge. It is reported that the gen
tlemen have been offered a site and
considerable spruce timber free, and
that they are so well pleased that
the factory will be built in tho very
near future. The box material, when
manufactured, will bo shipped from

Mr. McConnell, who owns several
shares in tho Randolph, was down
from Langlois last week talking with
tho businessmen of tho town with a
view to putting that boat on tho run
again between Marshfield I'ort Orford
and Rogue River. He received con
siderable encouragement and it is now
announced that the Randolph will be
on the run by April 1st. This will be
good news to tho people of this place
as tho Rustler is unable to carry the
Roirue freight and give this place
good sorvico at tho same timo, and as
she is under contract to carry for the
Weddorhurn Trading Company, when
ever more freight ncumulates than she
can handlo Tort Orford is the one to
Buffer. The Randolph going on the

Will Have a Boat
Harvey Dunham, who was yester
day shorn of a pilot's license on the
steamer Telegraph, had a roll of bills
on his person, today, that would fill a
quart measure. This money was fur
nished him by Coquille and' Bandon
parties who gave him open orders to
iro to Portland and buy a boat that
will outrun anything on the Coquille
river. Harvey is well known here
and was engaged as a brakeman on
tho railroad sevcrrfl years. He is
a young man of good qualities nnd in
telling of his intention today, said ho
will bring back n boat to liven up
travel on the Coquille. That the bus
iness men of the valley fortified him
with funds to purchase a fast boat is
sufficient approval of Hnrvey's ability
to ofset whatever effect the temporary
loss of his license will have.

Captain H. J. Dunham Made Goat and
Loses Skipper's License lor 60 Days
The steamer Telegraph is now in
charge of a new captain, the third in
mcccssion who has had charge of that
oat since Feb. 1st. The last change
s ns the result of the decision in the
icaring given the'crews of the Tel

ollision a week ago last Saturday.

"ieorge F. Fuller nnd E. S. Edwards
it Coquille Tuesday and Wednesday.
Judge Sperry acted as counsel for
ho Telegraph and Attorney Tread
;ohl of Bandon represented the
'harm. According to the evidence
roiight in the inspectors were con
vinced tlfat the collision was largely
.1 the nature of an accident. It was
,hown that a deck hand of theTelo
jrapli'liad the wheel at the time of
ho accident. The deck hand wan ac
nowledged to be competent to steer
.he boat but, as ho had no papers his
.ct was in violation of the regulations
'aptain II. J. Dunham was made tho
;oat of the proceedings and was de-n-ived
of his skipper's license for a
eriod of sixty days.
Judge Sperry, attorney for Captain
Valtcr Punter, assures that gontle
niiii that there is excellent prospect
or a rehearing in hiscaso with tho
hances good for a lifting of tho 20
noiith's suspension of license under
which he now is.
Captain Punter of the Telegraph
isked the U. S. steamer inspector to
Ix a schedule for the boats, Charm
,nd Telegraph, making their running

acing along together. The inripectoi

force any such regulation.

George Cbalburn and Mary Donaldson to
Represent High School at North Bend.
Good Program at Benelit Entertainment
George Chatburn and Miss Mnry
Donaldson will have tho honor of rep
resenting the Bandon high school in
the oratorical contests at North Bend,
April 1st.
Three girls and three boys entered
the competition before a large audi
ence in the auditorium of the high
school Wednesday night. C. R. Wade,
F. J. Fecney and Miss A. A. Henry
acted us judges and rendered the ver
dict ns above.
Tho contests were unusually good.
The girls especially had paid particu
lar attention to the interpretation of
their selections, had them well com
mitted to memory and wore easy and
natural in their delivery. The boys
also had good selections and present
ed them very effectively. .
Tho "stunt" from Shakesqearc at
tracted perhaps the most enthusiasm
of any feature of the evening. The
droll situations of "Pyramus and This
oe created much merriment. Consid
erable pains had been devoted to the
make up of the different parts. The
'luman wall and the moonbeam were
idmirable and the human lion whisk
ed about the stage and roared in so
ifelike a manner that it was difficult
io keep the real dog who at times was
i stage companion, from snapping at
lis heels. The tragic self slaughter of
uhc hero and heroine.took with the
rowd immensely and only the fact
that they had made such positive as-
uirnccs that they were thoroughly
lead, .preventedthe.audienc,jCcpm re
questing them to come back and kill
themselves over again.

Dr. H. D. Sheldon Finds Deeper Truth in
Novels Than in Works of Biography.
Gives List of Boy and Ctrl Heroes
The combination of an extra good
program and a free feed thrown in for
good measure proved irristable as a
drawing card and there was a laige
turn out at the Patron-Teachers' facet
in the high school audjtorium last
Tuesday evening. Preliminary to the
address by Dr. Sheldon, which wns
the feature of the evening, there was
a mandolin solo, a selection by the
young ladies' glee club and a solo by
his honor, Mayor Topping. All were
roundly applauded, and Mr. Topping
was compelled to respond to an en
core. When ho had been presented by
Mrs. Lewin, president of the associa
tion, in a neat little speach.'Dr. Shel
don began by felicitating the school
patrons on the interest they took in
the association. People he said, were
apt to shy at the word novel, associat
ing it with dime novels and the five
cent shocker but he had feelings of
pity for people who refused to read
novels on the ground that they were
untrue. While novels deal with ini
maginary persons, he said, they deal
with real emotions and traits of per
sonal character. An author can cre
ate a fictitious character and endow
him , with real characteristics and
..'motions such as ho would
perhaps be ashamed to reveal in an
ictual autobiography and would not
dare to tell In a biography of n friciul
or acquaintance.
Thus it comes, explained Dr. Shel-
Jonjhat the student of human char
acter' can find much better "material
for study in the characters of novels
than in tho narrations of real exper
iences of- actual life.
He went on to show how the teacher
and parent could acquire understand
ing of how character developos in
children by reading novels ami in
stanced David Copperficld, by Charles
Dickens as an illustration. Ho recall
ed how ardently David would study
his lessons and master them only
to have it all leave him in a panic
when confronted by his stern step
father, Mr. Murdslone. Murdsione,
tho speaker explained, was a disciplin
arian, one of the sort of men who fix
a mental schedule of action in their
minds and insist that the pupil must
measure up to it in every particular,
who are mindful not only of the re
sults attained but insist that the joui
ney to the goal must follow paths
laid out in advance to the minutest
Pendennis, Thackery's hero wa3
brought forward as an explanation of
to erratic actions which sometimes
possess boys between the ages of 12
and 18. Ho instanced the changeful
ncss of young Pendennis. He would be
seized with a passion to become a par
ticular variety of hero, following up
the ambition for a short time, only to
grow tired of his aspirations and to
throw them off for something no
that had freshly attracted his alien
tion. The story of Pendennh' love
uffair was humorously related frcin
its inception to its inglorious termi
nation. Other books more briefly
touched upon were "The Ordeal of
Richard Claverel" by George Meriditli
and "Stalkey and Company" and Cap
tains Courageous" by Kipling. As an
illustration or type of girl character
he delineated Maggie Tulliver in "The
Mill on tho Floss" by George Eliot.
Dr. Sheldon represents the univt-r-
sity of Oregon extension department
and Ids presence in Bandon war. he
cured through tho influence of the li
brary board. His address was listen
ed to with marked attention ami at Its
conclusion hu was enthusiastically ap

The Perry vcneernull is the scene
of industrial activity these days. Mr.
Perry now has arrangements with the
logging camp just started up to se
cure all the spruce logs needed. Had
lie known six months ago that he
would have the supply of logs, now
.lvailable, ho could have secured many
more contracts. Not being suns of a

U the trouble in running has been
caused by a short supply of logs.
The financial success of the mill it

jf the middle man. The output i

sociations and other users. The re
cent addition of broom handle inn
jliinery is not now being run. At pres.
nt they have no equipment for paint
ing the handles. This will be instal
led soon. Then tho broom handles
can be sold direct to broom manu
facturers and the useless middleman
bo eliminated there also.,
Commercial Club Takes up Project
and Plans to Finance the Work
At the meeting of the commercial
club fast Tuesday night it was deter
mined to take up the work of restor
ing the walk to the beach which has
been interrupted by the government
making use of its tramway which had
formerly been a part of the walk.
As one means of raising money it was
proposed to hold a minstrel show in
the near future and a committee was
delegated to make the necessary prep
arations. Date and details'will be an
nounced later.
Messrs. Sorcnsen, Best nnd Boyle nre

in charge.
R. M. Fox of the Roach Lumber
company nnd the Sutherlin, Coon
Bay and Eastern railroad states that
work will be resumed on the grading
for the railroad as soon as the ground
is sufilciently dry and that the work
will be carried on rapidly.
Tho lifeless body of tho 7-ycar old
Littler boy, missing a fortnight, was
found floating under the wharf at the
foot of Market avenue. Tho body
was badly decomposed. It wus
thought when ho was first reported
missing that tho lad had perished by
falling overboard, and searching par
ties had dragged the bottom of the
bay in vain near where he was acci
dentally found this forenoon by Cecil
