Makes New Schedule
II was announced Saturday that the
(oquillc River Transportation com
,.,iny had sold out its interests on the
liver to the Myrtle Point Trannpor
l ition company nnd that the latter
would handle the business of both
companies, The move will also mean
tiiu end of the warfare that has iVs
uirhed river business for some time
putt. With the purchase the boats
Charm and Coquille pass into the
hands of the Myrtle Point company
and will be opernted by them on a reg
ular schedule.
The complete schedule- of river
transportation will bo as follows:
The Charm, with Allen, I'anter as
pilot and Sherman Huliord as engin
eer will leave Hamlon nt (5:!10, a. m.
and at 12:30, I), in. connecting willi
the trains to Marshfield. The Tele
graph with Walter Panter as pilot and
Wm. Panter as engineer will leave
liandon at 8:00 a. in. nnd will connect
Willi the train to Powers, leaving Coquille-
for the rot urn at 2:00, p. in. and
making only one trip a day.
The steamer Coquille will leave Co
quille nt 7:00, a. in. and returning

formerly interested in the company
tuitl was pilot of the Charm during the
i ij-s of her newness, but parted with
1 s interests Inst summer.
The hopes of the Myrtle Point com
j iny have centered in the steamer
j degraph which in speed and ease of
1 nulling has proved herself able to
l icet most any kind of competition.
ra ho control of tho Myrtle Point com
) any is vested mostly in the Panter
family which is large enough to ofll
car a whole licet of boats. They have
proved competent to hold their own in
uver trallic. A strong clement in fnv
a" of this company is the mail con
tract. They have had undisputed pos
. ssion of the trallic from Coquille to
Myrtle Point and now becomes domi

Tho Pronto which was bought last

Alleged Thief Released

Coffee House, taking therofrom $7.8!
t.nd a w.itch and chain. The watch

recovered and volutarily delivered to
the Marshal Frank llolman.
The man appeared to be unfortunate
in securing work, and was both 'broke'
nnd hungry at the time the act is al

him with the crime other than his own

Encouraging Reports of Economic Condi
tions in Central West
The Omaha World-Herald, Chicago
Tribune and Portland Journal are
authority for the statement that there
is a scarcity of labor in Chicago at the
present time. That contrary to the
usual situation there in he monh of
November, when under all kinds of
times bolh good and bad, theie are
usually from 100,000 up, idle and job
less men, now there is a scarcity of
labor, and labor employment agencies
and bureaus are unable to supply men
to those desiring to employ thorn. C.
J. Hoyd, head of the Chicago free em
ployment office opened and maintain
ed by the state reported that each
night he was closing his books with
100 jobs unfilled, and unable to se
cure man to fill them. Other labor
agencies, private agencies nnd the
Chicago public welfare bureau for wo
men, all report similar conditions. The
demand and likewise the price for la
bor is steadily on the increase. With
the advent of spring it is expected
that the situation will become serious
because of he great scarcity of labor.
To tho foregoing statements, the
Cincinnati Inquirer adds that the re
tail merchants will do the most busi
ness and the distribution of goods dur
ing tho next six months will be the
greatest in quantity and in value in
the history of the nation.
That by reason of the general em
ployment of all available labor at the
present exceadingly high price, the
purchasing power of tho working men
and alsj of tho merchants and busi
ness, mju-genorally through tho Unit
ed States is the greatest in our history
The foregoing statements apply fore

States not given principally to timber
and lumber industry.

Thanksgiving day was originally a
day for expressing thanks to God for
temporal blessings. At that time peo
ple had suffered so much from priva
tions that there was a need of a spe
cial tabulation of blessings. They were
thankful to be alive nnd to have reas-
onblo assurance that they would not
want for the necessities of life. We,
in this day arc less appreciative of the
luxuries which have become so com
mon, than were our forefathers of a
modest sufliciency. Our luxuries have
tended to our profligacy. The more
we have the more we exact. The first
step in Thanksgiving is tho recogni
tion of our many blessings.
Tilings we should be thankful for:
Our friends the kind -that forgive
our mistakes and overlook our faults;
or better still, help us to mend them.
The things about us that cause us
to look up and to take hope and to ns-
pire to nobler living and higher des
tiny. Life the great battle of life, with
its rubs and jolts, and problems and
tests which are helping to make us

we are profited today. The blunders

have made us wiser and stronger.

The Korn Karnival in Coquille lust

of the ears were over a foot long. The
merchants of Coquille took advantage
of the show to put in attractive dis
plays of their own merchandise.

Schmidt Hansen Discovers Dead Whale on
Two Mile Beach. Other
Whales Reported
Schmidt Hansen announced the dis
covery of a whale upon the beach u
half mile below Two Mile creek Sat
urday. Ranchers in that vicinity tell
of three wlinles fighting in that lo
cality but whether this resulted in the
death of the beached carcass is not
Hansen, as the original discoverer
has carved his name in tho body and
i'os his purpose to set some one
at work trying out the blubber for the
oil for which he expects a heavy de
mand for purposes of boot greasing
to make foot wear impervious to wat
er. However if the genial Hansen ex
pects to realize anything out of this
project he must set his men at work
speedily for the carcass bus begun to
work on its own account, the effect
of which is observable to the olfactory
nerves at some considerable distance.
This whale is a small one, a littlo
over thirty feet long and not to be
compared with the ninety footers that
at times are cast up by the waters.
The whale is of the baleen type so
called because it has no teeth ! ill
strains minute forms of sea life
through tough flexible plates, the
same from which whalebono is ob
tained. Theso plates have a fringed edge
which in rubbing of the water and
sand have tho appearance of fur which
probably gave rise to the story that
a similar whale cast up on Merchant's
beach was a prehistoric remains.
It is reported that there have been
two whales cast on the Merchant's
beach, both like the Two Mile whale,
small ones.
Whales are quite numerous along
the coast and a small one is said to
have entered the river recently.
