The Coast Mail.
ATAT, . . jr. , im,
With this Issue wo not only enter
upon the new year, but we ido com
mence the second volumo of tho
Coast Mail. Tho paper was start
ed without a prospectus having
beea issued, find without a canvass
for patrons, and its success has
more than met tho expectations of
the proprietors. Our list of subscri
bers has been steadily increasing
since the first number was issued,
and it is a sourco of special gratifi
cation that it holds all who have
It has been our purposo for somo
months past, to lay aside tho "pat
ent outside" system, at the com
mencement of tho year, and, owing
to an unexpected obstruction of tho
means of transportation between
hero and Roseburg, wo were compell
ed to do so a few weeks earlier than
was intended. The paper is now on
a substantial basis, and it will here
after bo mado moro attractive than
it has been in the past.
We have perfected arrangements
for a scries of articles, on tho sub
ject of the early history of Curry
county, with moro perfect accounts
than havo over before been written
of tho Indian massacres and other
events of thrilling interest with
which that history abounds. The
increased space at our disposal, sinco
we have undertaken the printing of
our own paper, will enable us also,
to present our readers with a more
complete synopsis of the general
news of the day, and we shall con
tinue, as in the past, to make it
more complete in local news than
any other paper ever printed in Coos
The year now opened, promises
to h one of more than ordinary ac
tivity, in business as well as in po
litical circles. Our regular biennial
election coming on next June, will
be followed by the Presidential con
test, in November, making almost
the entire year a continuous politi
cal campaign. The rcvivai in busi
ness, and especially the restoration
of the price of coal and lumber to
figures which will justify shipment
has a certain bearing upon the gen
eral prosperity in this coast region ;
and the opening of work upon the
harbor improvement, will add an
important item to the revival of bus
iness in Coos county. As the Mail
has received a cordial support dur
ing the depressed period of the past
year, we feel assured of largly in
creased patronage in the more pros
perous future ; ana our readers and
patrons shall see improvement in
our paper in proportion to the in
crease in the business and prosperi
ty of the community in which it
7b KtsBit " fftooi titers Oregon
la Uro Omlng? Election.
In a few months, the voters of the
different political parties will hold
their conventions and nominate can
didates for the various State and
county offices to be filled at the
next June election. It is the duty
of the people of all parts of the State
to think about this important busi
ness beforehand, and to discuss the
qualifications and character of all
possible candidates, in order that,
when the time comes for action, they
may be able to act intelligently, and
avoid being thrown in the power of
designing and unworthy politicians,
The coming election will be one of
the most important ever held under
our State organization; for, although
there will be no Executive to be
chosen, the judges of all the higher
courts in the State, ore to be elected.
This arises from the provisions of
the Act of the last Legislature, pro
viding for the creation of a separate
Supreme Court, and for the appoint
ment of all of the Circuit, as well as
Supreme Judges, to hold till the
coming election. In making nom
inations for fiie various State offi
cers, the question of locality is one
which has much bearing upon the
choice of candidates, and tho citi
zens of all parts of the State very
properly insist upon a just represen
tation on the ticket This principle
has also been recognized by the
Governor in appointing the Judges
of the Supreme Court; Judge Kelly
being chosen from Portland, Boise,
from Salem, and Primin, from
southern Oregon. With tho single
exception of Judge Primm, southern
Oregoa has, at present, no personal
representative among the officers of
the State; this condition of things
is hardly just, and the southern del
egates of both partie to the nomi
nating conventions, will probably
claim from that part of the State,
one of the Supreme Judges, and the
Representative to Confrew, North
ern && northna4crn Owgtu send
our'pritent Scoters, awl "tho cen
tral portion of fro 8UtjW present
Representative; anl nothing short
ortnoabsenco of a suitable candi
date could bo mndo an oxcuso for
denying southern Oregon tho next
Representative to Congress, We
have interests of great importance
to tho State at large, and of still
greater importance to tho residents
or this part of tho State, which
should reccivo tho carnost attention
of Oregon's Representative; and
whilo wo havo no reason to accuse
tho present officials of neglecting tho
interests of any part of the State, wo
would look for moro efficient work
from a man who is personally ac
quainted with our wants, and whose
interests are with the people of south
Nor is tho material for a Congress
man, wanting; tho Convention can
find, south of the Callipooia moun
tains, a man who, in all the elements
required for that office, will com
pare favorably with tho best in tho
State. This is truo of both political
parties; and wo hope the citizens
who may havo the selecting of our
candidates, will eoe that tho choice
for that oflico is made from tho
southern portion of tho State.
tty Acalnut ASVctlen,
A New Haven dispatch of recent
date, says; There was a dramatic
scene in tho Harden trial to day dur
ing the cross-examination of Mrs.
Haydcn, when Mr. Waller asked the
Now, madam, you needn't answer
this question until you arc told to by
tho court: Mr. Haydcn, you say, is
your husband and the father of your
three children, and that he has been
a devoted husband to a loving wife
for between eight aud nine years;
that you have constantly maintained
pleasant relations, and that there has
been and is now the utmost confi
dence existing between you; that
you aro convinced of his innocence,
and know that if he is found guilty
he must suffer ignominious punish
ment. Under these circumstances,
would you not, under oath, as you
are, mako a misstatement T"
There was no answer. The witneca
burst into tears, as did nearly every
woman in the court, and tears glis
tened in the eyes of the sterner sex.
A silence as of death pervaded the
room, and the counsel for tho defense
hisucd out, "It is an insult to the wit
ness." Walter defended his action,
but the court ruled tho question an
The State Fair for IS&e.
The unavailing efforts of the State
Agricultural Society to fix the time
for holding tho Fair so as to avoid
wet weather, has driven them to a
" new departure " so to speak. At a
meeting of thosocioty ou the 2d ult.,
the time of holding the fair of 1880,
was fixed to commence on Thursday,
July let, and close on Thursday, July
8th. It was ordered that on July 5th,
there be a grand celebration of the
National Anniversary, with oration,
etc., in the forenoon. In tho after
noon, two trials of speed, and display
of equestrianship, farget shooting, etc.
for premiums offered, and in the even
ing a grand display of fireworks in
front of the grand stand ; scats free.
National salute at sunrise, noon and
Mexico at Peace, and Happy.
The insurrection which a short
time since threatened to amount to an
revolution in Mexico, has died out,
and a late dispatch says : Teace pre
vails throughout tho Republic. Con
gress is discussing the Sonora railroad
concession to which there is great op
position, based upon the fear that
such a road would precipitate the
movement for the annexation of So
nora, Hinaloa and Chihauhau, or in
cite filibustering from California.
The richness of Sierra Mojara is
rapidly deyeloping. Valuable gold
reins have been discovered. Ameri
cans are invited to come with mach
inery or engage in any other business.
Large quantities of American goods
are coming in.

A late dispatch says : It is under
stood that Gould, Busscll, Sago and
some other New York capitalists, are
bidders for the construction contract
of the Texas and Pacific railroad, to
extend the road at $25,000 a mile.
They agree to take stock and bonds in
equal amount in payment. This will
cd ve them 18,000,000 of the stock of the
company, and in case they complete
their contract within two and a hall
years, that will give them the control
by a stock vote. This offer will prob
ably be accepted within a few days.

Fruit Company is now drying fruit by

purchased 80,000 pounds of dried fruit
