Upper River. Two railroad surveyors were meandering about town Saturday
and caused much excitement among land owners.  For at times the speculative
real estate men would begin to fear that the depot would be far away from his
possessions, as the surveyors returned Sunday to Marshfield without giving
any one any information where the car shop, round house, station house, coal
sheds or telegraph office would be, we presume that the agents who handle
"'mother earth'" will do a small business for a few days.  +  [cp ]

sell it now to somebody else for double what it cost them, but this is the only
piece of bench land large and level enough for fairgrounds within a radius of 5

of fruit on it; also the finest of apples, pears, plums, prunes, etc., growing with
vigorous corn and potatoes. So much for East Marshfield's freedom from

Fish oystersTot- Glasgow  condit-signs-times  un-7 CCH Aug 12, 1890
It turns out now that John Nasburg, T. J. Davis, and Johnny Manning after
their very commendable efforts in establishing an oyster bed in Coos bay have
to fight a large, rich corporation, the Glasgow townsite company, to maintain
it, and the opposition, it is claimed, is purely wonton [sic].  Right is right, no
matter who the parties are affected, whether rich or poor, high or low, or
whatnot. In this instance, it is said that the company, instead of stopping when
it got its wharf piling to the channel, kept right straight on across the middle
ground and the oyster bed till stopped by the strong arm of the law. We trust
that right and justice will prevail, and that Glasgow may thrive and prosper
with and by, and not to the exclusion of established enterprises, this one of
which, though proven to be established but fifteen months, promises so much.

What needed  Lhc  Nosler  [Pr-27a] CCH Aug 12 1890 
[M. 2006. This probably continues an article in Un-5.  If so, requires small t.]
There are dozens of enterprises that might be successfully carried on causing a
continual stream of money to flow in here and develop as rich a section of
country as can be found anywhere on this coast. What's the matter with a fruit
cannery, a starch factory, a match factory, a box factory, a sash and door
factory or any factory that manufactures articles out of wood? We have the
timber, of the finest quality, and in unlimited quantities; we have coal in
abundance, which will produce the motive cower at a nominal cost. Then why
do we ship our lumber and coal away to be used in manufactories elsewhere?
Why not ship manufactured goods from here instead of the raw material, can
anyone tell?   [lot more; stat on what could happen if they planted sugar
...We must necessarily have a barrel factory as one hundred and twenty-five
barrels are used daily; [M. note, it had just been talking abt creameries and
cheese factories; I can't tell whether barrels for that or for everything produced
here.] at least sixty tons of coal per day would be used, necessitating the
opening of some of our coal banks. The daily expense of running this factory,
almost of every cent of which would be expended right here among us, would
be $2464.75.  [M. how many factories is he talking about; where does he get
the 2000 figure; looks like he's talking about combining beet sugar, creamery
end coal.]  W.H. Nosler.  +

     The promising townsite of East Marshfield is attracting a great deal of
attention on the bay just now.  Last Saturday Mr Coberg, the gentlemanly
agent in charge, showed a Herald representative all over the site, and he
acknowledges that an eighteen year’s residence in the county, and a part of the
time spent in Marshfield, had not qualified him to judge of this lovely place as
a location for a city. It is situated east of Marshfield and gets its name from its
direction and proximity to the county’s metropolis. It is bounded on the south
by Isthmus slough where it has a good, substantial wharf; on the west by Coos
bay proper and on the north by Coos river and Catching slough, thus forming
a horse-shoe-like exterior. The ground is sufficiently rolling to admit of
excellent drainage, and the best of water is obtained at a depth of twenty (20)
feet. The streets are eighty feet wide and the alleys twenty feet, thus giving the
place the metropolitan appearance in that regard that is supposed to maintain
in all the near future. There is ample room for a. city of twenty thousand
people, exclusive of an extensive tide flat on the south and vest which is being
sold readily for factory sites, mills and business locations. Upon the whole
East Marshfield is destined to make a city and the rival that gets away with
her will have to get on a good move. The buildings going up show in every
stick and timber an abiding faith in its future by the settler’s [sic] there.
     That the railroad from that place to the Clawson place below Beaver
slough on this river is to be commenced very soon and rushed to completion,
its rapid occupation may be readily assumed [sic].   [cp]

one of the best and cheapest sections of the Pacific coast to travel through.
...Settlers, with whom I have conversed, are a unit in the opinion that a
railroad from Roseburg to Coquille City will aid in bringing in people of
means to assist in the development of Bandon and the country adjoining.
Summer residences will be built and the varied industries which are yet
dragging their slow length along will receive vigorous propulsion. Here on
