Wharf at this place last Thur. presented the liveliest scene ever witnessed and
a new industry inaugurated.  These serve as pointers of what may be in store
for us if we give a helping hand.  At noon there were present 4 seagoing
vessels, ocean steamers Alice Blanchard and Bandorille, schooners Ralph J.
Long and Antelope, all just in fm S.F. And 4 river steamers: Dispatch,
Antelope, Alert, and Myrl.  Stmr Bandorille had just arr w/cargo genrl
merchdze and by evening had received broom handles, butter fm creameries,
and produce.  Then dropped to lower river for further freight for trip to
Portland. By 2 o'clock pm Stmr Alice Blanchard had discharged heavy cargo
of genrl freight and finished receiving 75,000 ft lumber, 48 head beef cattle,
74 head hogs, butter, chickens, produce, and had started for S.F. Schooners
Long and Antelope were receiving lumber fm Lyons mill, and 4 riverboats, 2
on upper and 2 for lower river, were getting their usual complements of
passengers and freight to distribute along the route.  Altogether it presented a
busy as well as pleasing sight, and if it continues, we will have to do some
extending of our waterfront.  Shipment of cattle to city by water was first
effort of the kind and promises to be not only a permanent industry, but
considerably enlarged.

John Manning and Charles Owen, charged with the robbery and burning of
the Sumner store, escaped from the confines of the county jail at Empire City,
Tuesday night at 11 o'clock.
   They were occupying the east and west cells, separately, and made good use
of  their escape by the use of saws and augers. The traces of their work shows
that Owen bored from his cell into Manning’s and from Manning’s cell they
passed through the door, the lock of which had been filed off, and then passed
into the corridor and out through the outside door. This door was fastened
from the inside as a guard occupied the corridor at nights. Wm. Haskell was
on guard at the time the break was made and fired three shots at the fleeing
prisoners.   Haskell was handicapped by his position as the large cell door
opened right between him and the criminals, thus forming a barricade until the
outer door was open. When this outer door was open they were free. The news
of their flight did not cause a great amount of surprise here as the insecurity of
the jail is well known. Sheriff Gage was in town the following morning and
had tracked the refugees to the hill back of town and will keep up a diligent
search until he finds them.
   Before his departure, Manning wrote a letter, which he left for Sheriff Gage.
In it he states his reasons for leaving and says, "You may catch me but not
until this term of court is over." --Sun. +

Other-coal?  BH  history   locales  names  (loose3) CCH C Oct 30, 1894. 
Glen Aiken is engaged in coal business and at present filling orders fm Beaver
Hill mine.  When supplying a patron Monday, he said that hauling coal
brought him back to old pioneer days when he was one of a company who
opened the Boatman bank and hauled the first load of coal ever shipped fm
C.B., just 40 yr ago.  Members of the company engaged in that enterprise
w/him were his brothers James and John, Frank Ross, Dick Learn?, B.F.
White, Doc Gaddis, and Sam Darlington.  Coal was hauled with oxen fm mine
at head of Coalbank Slough, where wharf had been built of poles.  It was then
loaded on lighters and taken to mouth of slough, near where RR depot now
stands, where a vessel was waiting to receive it.  James and Pat Flanagan, who
were living where Empire now is, handled the cargo and disposed of it in S.F.  
fm C.B. News.  [cp]

Srh  needed  town-rivalry?   (loose3) CCH C  Oct 30, 1894
those who claim to know say our breakwater at mouth of river will never
amount to much unless the jetties are strengthened like those at C.B. and run
out into deep water.  When this is done, we will have no more bars, as all mud
and sediment will be carried out to deep sea.  When this is completed, we will
have no necessity to get nearly all our exports, save lumber, as we do now, to
and from, Coos Bay.  We can export and import thru our natural highway, the
Coq. R.; thereby save all expenses and inconveniences.   [red ck mark]
