Neighbor's View of Coaches
This case is one of a great deal of
interest owing to the prominence of
the parties involved. And back of the
question of guardianship looms the
fate of the Coach Timber Co. which
was for so long one of tho leading
lumber corporations of the river. !
It is several years since Col. Wil
liam Coach died and left his estate to
his threo children Joseph W., and Ar
thur T., and Mary E. Cary, in equal
portions. In the threo years since thby
came into their inheritance both the
men have gone through with tho cash
they got out of their father's estate
sonio $40,000 each and gone in debt ho
But there remains tho stock of the
Coach Timber company, of which
each of tho threo heirs owns practical
ly $100,000 of par value, the capitiali
zatlon having been, $300,000. While
this, no doubt, fairly represented the
value of the company' holdings at the
time it was organized, the sales .of
timber and tho depreciation in tho-
valuc of what remains have brought
tho stock down to n point where, it
would not today sell for much more
than fifteen cents on the dollar in tho
This would mean tho comfortable
sum of $15,000 yet for each of the
heirs. Joseph ,Coaeh, however, got. in
bad in tho Simpson girl cases a year
ago and suw that ho was lluble to gut
started for tho pen for contributing
to tho delinquency of a minor.IIo spent
money like water to evade such a Re
sult, employing detectives galore and
paying his salaries to newspaper writ
ers to influence public opinion in his
behalf. This cost so much that he is
reported to have hypotcchcutcd Jiis
stock to ruise tho money he neocfed,;
And now it is surmised that ho may be
able to sell that stock or tho parties
to whom it pledged may for 25 cents
a Bhare instead of fifteen, provided ho
can turn over u controlling interest.
To do this in necessary that he should
handle the majority of Arthur's stock
as well as his own and this he cannot
do so long as the guardianship stands.
Tho evidence of course showed that
Arthur Coach had dissipated his for
tune in riotous living, to some extent
at least, his attorney claimed that $25,
000 Arthur had used up had gone to
his divorced wife in a settlement with
her, and the lawyers got a big share
of the rest of it At tho same time it
was admitted that owing to the gene
ral depression of business, nd local
conditions as well, Arthur had carried
on his restaurant business at a loss.
A number of witnesses from Ban.
don testified that Arthur was fit to
manage his own affairs and others
from Coquille wore equally sure that
ho was not, owing to mental infirmi
When Mrs. Cary was appointed
guardian for her brother it was on the
ground that he was an incompetent
spendthrift which seemed evident e-
nough on the face of the returns and
it wns also in evidence thnt ho was in
dulging in dissipation and drinking to
excess. Sinco then he has cut out the
boozo and vastly improved his physi
cal conditions by out door life, so that
there is now a prima facie case for ask
ing that he be freed from guardian
ship. Of course Arthur has been so much
better off, physically, financially and
morally sinco he has been deprived of,
tho opportunity to further squander
his property that it would seem to a
man up n tree that he could suffer no
real detriment by continuing the
guardianship. On the other hand it
is likewise true that a considerable
percentage of the people of any com
munity would be better off with a wise
guardian, and the claim is that the con
ditions which justified the appoint
ment of a guardian six months ago in
his case no longer exists, and that a
man of forty-five should be allowed
the management of his own affairs.
Considering the interests involved &
the ramifications of thee asc, it is an
especially inteKjsting one. Coquille

GOLD REACH GOSSIl-
(From the Gold Beach Globe)
The seine Caught three hundred nnd
fifty salmon at one haul at the mouth
of the river one day recently.
R. L. Macleay has raised the price
of salmon to $1.25 for salmon weigh
ing 25 pounds or more and $1.00 for
salmon weighing over 15 lbs.
There has been no other case of
small pox in town and it is not
thought thnt there will be any more
cases as the danger period is pnst

An old gentleman, Mr. Rickey nnd
Miss Walsworth, who lives on the
Handy ranch; went out on the coun
ty road on tho Myers creek mountain
to pick red hucklo beries last Thurs
day morning and got lost. They were
out all day Thursday, Thursday night
and until about 11 o'clock, Friday
night before they reached their home.
A searching party from here had been
organized and would have stated ear
ly Saturday morning had they not
found their way back when they did.
The lost people in their roaming found
their way to Frank Dapicl's where
they secured something to cat before
There is evidently some party or
parties in this locality that should
not be allowed to run nt large. Some
fow nights ago acid was pored over
the seine which caused no small
amount of loss in salmon beside a
great deal of labor to repair it. Only
last night tho wire fence recently
built by the Wedderburn Trading
company at the boat landing on this
side of tho river was torn down nnd
a row of posts set yesterday from the
boat landing south toward the tin
house was pulled up and burned. Such
work as destroying property by fire
after night is n serious, matter and
any community with such operators
at large is not safe. The good citizens
of this community, although not all
are in sympathy with the fishing int
erests of the Wedderburn Trading Co,
denounce this dastardly act most bitterly.
Notices hnve been posted advertis
ing a Corn and Venison Festival to be
held at Ianglois on August (Uh and
7th. Doubtless those who will attend
will havo a good time but the venison
will be cither in name or tho canned
vnriety as the open season for hav
ing such dainties in possession does
not open until Aug. 15th. Tho pro
moters of this celebration evidently
got hold of a last year's calendar
when it was legal to have venison
stew after August 1st.
