tion on tho ordinnry, is nevertheless
one that will command the attention
of public spirited people. He propos
es something that will clean out the
cats of the city and at tho same time
provide fiat variety of entertainment
that is indispensiblo to the proper de
velopnunt of humanity.
His idea briefly is to establish an
umphithcater, properly seated to
which a proper admission fee will be
charged. He has already discovered
noveral worthy enterprises to which
tho proceeds micht be annliod but
will not announce his choice at this
time, in the interest of harmony.
He will invent a certain call tint
will assemble all the cats in the mun
icipality in a manner as herewith. It is
wall known that cats havo a neculinr
wild, vrierd call which is effective in
calling an assemblage of felines. Mr.
Podgewaltor proposes to enlarce on
this call, increase its volume, and pro
duces noise that the average cat can
no more resist than the charmed bird
can resist the power of the serpent
Another cat characteristic on which
Mr. Podgewaltor relies is its mania
for combat The cats will be lot into
tho arena a few at a time. There a
cast iron cat will be awnitinc them.
This is the kernel of the activities of
Mr. Podgewaltor at present. This
cast iron cat will be triple expansion,
riveted and bold, with springs and
gears and steel claws, operated bv
electricity and is expected to f.ke the
cats three or four at a time and make
mince meat out of them.
We have become very much inter
ested in the plans as Mr. Podgewaltor
has explained them, to us. We fear
thera are a few details that will work
out better in theory than in practice.
Howevor wl aro willing to be shown
and await with interest further deve
lopments in Mr. Podgowalter's experi
ments. He is at present in ouo&t of a ma-
chinis to put his ideas into form.

Motor Cars To
Run To Powers
At an informal meeting of Marsh
field's city council and attended by
ofilcials of the Southern Pacific, head
ed by Chief Engineer Wm. Hood, an
agreement was reached which means
more for Coos Bay than nny one thing
that has been done for some time.
In consideration of n release for
five years from the provisions of the
franchise granted the Southern Pacific
company by the city of Marshfield,
which required a regular hourly mo
tor service between that city and
North Bend, the Southern Pacific com
pany will extend its motor passenger
service to the Coquillc valley and to
Lakeside, with a later extension to
Reedsport as soon ns the track can be
put in shape for sale use.
Thought the meeting wns informal
and it will require the passage of an
ordinance nt u regular session of the
council before the proposed release
may become effective, it is the plan
to have service started just as soon
From an unoflicial source we learn
that the plans of the company are to
make one round trip daily to Powers
and nt least one to Lakeside . Be
fore leaving for the city Engineer
Hood requested tho traffic and freight
department to supply the local offices
here with tariffs on freight and pas
senger service to Lakeside and Reeds
port On account of the popularity of the
request the meeting was a decidedly
one-sided affair and there was a lively
scramble for seats on the band wagon
Theie were present and representing
the Southern Pacific Co. Chief En
gineer Hood, Mr. Campbell his private
(secretary, Ralph Moody counsel for
the company, Engineers Fountain and
Iloey and the local representatives of
that compay. There were several
speeches and many fights of oratory
were indulged in. Speeches were
made by Mr. Moody, J. W. Bennett,
C. R. Peck, Hugh McLain, Chas, Hall
and our esteemed ex-mayor L. J.
That tho franchise granted tho S.
P. Company has proven to be a cost
ly mistake to that company is plain.
Under the rovisions of thnt measure
the company was obligated to furnish
North Bend and Marshfield hourly
service. People refuse to ride on the
car preferring the jitneys and as a
result it has cost the company about
$1500 a month.
Another angle to tho argument is
r.dvancad in tho statement that tho ac
tion of the council is too lata to sava
the logger trade, which has since been
diverted to Coquille, Myrtle Point and
Powers. Had the servico been on dur
ing the past six months much of this
trade would have been brought to the
bay cities, but instead stores were
stores were started in Powers where
excellent stocks are carried and the1
trade has been switched.
Another feature is that the fares
charged uro prohibitive to shopjxirs
at least to any great extent. The S.
P. chnrges four cents a mile or $1.00
each way to nnd from Powers. Few
shoppers can afford to pay two fares
to spend their money in the bay cities.

any improvement unless me roau
should take tho straight drop to the
level of Wall street. The dedications
were filed in 1912.
The petitions for the improvement
of the street were filed in March 1913.
The right of way to the north end
of the street was acquired through
condemnation. Three property own
ors were interested. Frank Lowe re
ceived $1,200 for tho hillside end of
the proposed road; tho Catholic church
was given $400 for a three cornered
piece nt the top of the hill nnd Elbert
Dyer $125 for a piece imediatcly ad
joining Uie latter.
The cost of this was assssscd as
benefits to the property owners back
along the street
Tho council issued its jurisdictional
notice and announced its intention to
improve the street naming tho new
straight way. At tho time this was
issued there was talk in tho council of
naming the two ways down and give
the peopla the right of choice by re
monstraiica which way they should tie.

in itself. When tho actual survey was
made however, it was found that the
cut in its deepest part would be 29
feet As soon as this was made known
Jie church people made up Uieir miurij
that the proposed improvement would
be a detriment to them instead of an .
improvement and set to work to defeat
it or as nn alternative get out of pay
ing the assessment that would be levi
ed against them.
Examining the titles it wns discov
ered that their half of the street run
ilng from Third to Fifth streets
had never been dedicated. The west
half of this section of the street had
been signed over but the church people
saw n chance to make their remon
strance felt nnd got out an injunction
which Inter was made permanent in s
the circuit court.
This has precipitated perhaps the
worst case of civic dissension the ci
ty has had to contend with in its his
tory. Now the lnw clearly appears
to be with the advocates of the
straight road. If the court defeats
them the people of tho street will have
o condemn the disputed property and
apportion its costs among them.
Something like $8,000 in warrants
have been issued already on this work
To put the expense on the property
owners the city will have to float
bonds and take up the warrants. No
bond company will buy bonds for im
provements which are in litigation. So
while the contention lasts the city is
In the meantime interested people
have been at work and at the meeting
of tho council Wednesday night n pro
posal was made to divert tho street
down the old county road. Mrs. Ja
cobson who owns the property at tho
top of .the hill around which the old
road now makes a "merry go round"
was represented ns willing to help in
tho way of straightening out the old
road and he city engineer took up tho
task of making an estimate and a
scheme for the proposed change and
will probably be ready to report at
tho next meeting of the council.
Following the new road the th'ing
is already grensed and will slide into
3hnpe automatically, albeit, with con
siderable howling. For the compro
mise, nil of tho property owners must
bo signed up again nnd tho contractor
must announce his willingcss to ac
cept tho chago. One or two stubborn
men havo it in their power to defy tho
rest and make it very disagreeable
The right of way already bought
and paid for will be one of the stick
ers in tho way of a change. This
strip is already platted as a street in
a map filed in 1913. But in order to
hold it the city would have to fence
it in and mako sonio slight improve
ments on it otherwise it would in du3
course of ovonts revort to tho original
In order to hold this the compromise
plan will probably provide for the im
provement of this grade, albeit not to
the grade at present proposed. Under
this plan the route from tho intersec
tion of Third and Oregon avenue to
the intersection of Bandon avc. and
First street as proposed, is apt to be
in the shape of a letter S as at present
and will not appeal to the public near
ly as strongly as if n direct diagonal
line were followed. The city engineer
is busy this week preparing a survey
and schedule of costs in making this
change from the original plans and
will report at the next meeting of the
Opponents to the straight road ob
ject that it will end tho street in Wall
street which , is practically an alley
and where a man with a load of long
poles or timbers would find it impos
sible to turn after he had made the
descent of the grade.
The friends of the straight street
reply that Wall street can be widened
that the costs would le born by the
property owners who would be the bc
beneficinries. E. E. Oakcs for one,
offers to donate land from his corner
if the city will move his building to a
lot he libs across the street from the
Objectors on the hill say the cross
streets will be mined where they havo
to cross tho cut. The reply to this is
that it was not planned to lower Third
street where the deepest cut will oc
cur but to bridge it over thus giving
access from the county road and Third
street to the church grounds, thut
Fourth street will have u cut of four
or five feet which van be reiiudiod
with a grade extending only a slion
distance from the intersection.
