[Head :] What Coquille City Needs.
     Every man, woman and child in Coquille is, or ought to be, intensely
interested in the progress and growth of our town. If there is a man, or woman
either, existing in this place, and breathing our free air, who is so destitute of
public spirit or town pride; so narrow-minded and selfish as not to care for the
public weal, or who takes no interest in the advancement of Coquille, it is to
be hoped that they will find it agreeable to themselves to emigrate to some
land of fossils, where everything and everybody are fixed in status quo, and
where the word  ‘progress” is not found in the vocabulary. But we prefer to
think that there are no such people in our midst; but that we are all alike
interested in pushing ahead. If so, what do we need?
     First, we need population.  Not ...a lot of people to come to this country
without means, expecting to find profitable employment at the hands of those
who are here already. An increase of population in this direction would be a
public calamity. But, for the development of the town and country we need a
large addition to our numbers. We need every acre of the rich bottom lands
lying along the Coquille valley adjacent to our town put into cultivation. 
Therefore we need men with families who have means to buy up these
uncleared and uncultivated bottom lands, and make this wonderfully rich
valley blossom as the rose. Few people have any conception of the
possibilities of these lands when once redeemed and placed under the plow.
All this can be done, and the best interests of Coquille demand it. It can only
be done by inducing thrifty people to come and purchase and redeem these
lands that now lie in a wilderness at our very doors. What are the enterprising
businessmen of our town doing to bring about these results? The move made
by our Bandon neighbors, if seconded by our people, would assist in bringing
about the desired end. Then it does seem that we ought to be equal to the task
ourselves of devising a plan, or plans, for encouraging such immigration. Will
not the people put their heads together and make some sensible move in this
     ...We think of many things that our town and country need, and which are
available if a proper effort is made.

[letter to ed.]
To the Editor of the Herald.
   --Dear Sir. In returning to Coquille City, after having visited so many
places, it must appear to anyone troubling themselves to think of our return
that Coquille has some points of superiority over all others in our estimation,
and such is the fact.  The Coquille has many advantages of climate and soil
and people. The climate and soil are there to stay, and though the people keep
moving -- i.e., coming and going -- still those also who are fitted for the
Coquille -- that is make themselves a homogenious [sic] part with the climate
and soil -- like the flowers and the trees, whether of native origin or
transplanted flourish and become in their relations to all around as though they
said this is the spot for me on earth.  It is some such feeling we experience in
returning to this lovely valley.  We come to stay, because the soil, the climate
and the people agree with us.
          With regard to our leaving, it was business and pleasure combined.
Business -- the settling up of a trusteeship and the continuation of a chancery
suit for the recovery of the “Barony of Bray, “confiscated at the end of the war
of the Roses, between the houses of Lancashire and Yorkshire in England
years ago.  I have thrown it up, upon receiving intelligence while in Auckland,
New Zealand, that the loss of valuable papers and documents I had in my
possession at Port Carling, Ontario, Canada, and which were burned at the fire
of the general store of C.W. Vanderburg, mill and steamboat owner, where I
was a clerk at the time and sleeping over the store, from which I barely
escaped with my life, and with the loss of all my valuables I had in my
bedroom at the time of the fire, 26th of November, 1878 or  79 (I forget
which). While in San Francisco I wrote to England to enquire whether the loss
of those papers would interfere with my chance of proving my claim, and
when in Auckland on my way to England received letters to say it lessened
my chance, which I had always considered very slight, as my grandfather had
spent upwards of L20,000, and my father nearly L14, 000, in the tracing up
from the Norman conquest in England the line of the second son of Isabel
Shaw, first Baroness of Bray, the heads of the heirs of the first son having
been cut off and placed on the gates of York at the time of the confiscation of
the estates. Upon the ascension of Queen Victoria to the throne, her majesty
promised to restore the confiscated property to those of the families who could
prove up, and my father’s father, knowing from certain valuable heirlooms in
his possession that he was of the family entered upon the claim for all he was
worth, but got nothing. My father walked in his father’s footsteps, giving his
substance for the shadow; I have quit the shadow, after having gone half-way
and am determined to enjoy the sunshine of the Coquille valley instead and
grow flowers and fruit...
     With kind regards, I am,
        Yours  respectfully,
         W. C. Wrenshall.

[separate item].
Messrs. W. C. and H. Wrenshall, who are so well and favorably known in
Coos county, and who left Bandon last July for a visit to other parts of the
world, returned last Friday and will stop for the present in Coquille. They
visited Australia, New Zealand, the Samoan islands and other points during
their absence. The Herald joins their many friends in giving them a cordial
welcome. It speaks well for Coos county that these gentlemen, of foreign
birth, after visiting all these grand countries should return to make their home
here in the balmy climate of Coos county and Coquille City...

Coq city needs.
     ...This week we wish to call the attention of our readers to another of our
needs. It ought to be apparent to everybody that we need a larger supply of
money as a circulating medium for the transaction of business. That the whole
country  is suffering from the effects of a money famine is a fact which goes
to the very marrow of every business man, as well as that of every laboring
man and producer.  It is no longer of any use to attempt to deceive people by
the stale, stock delusion, that there is plenty of money in the banks,  when the
press dispatches bring to our ears almost daily the news of the closing of the
doors of national banks because of the scarcity of funds, as was the case with
a national bank in Kansas City, which, on the 21st of  October, posted this
notice on their front door: “This bank is closed on account of the
stringency of the money market. “ No, there is no use attempting to disguise
the fact, we are suffering from a money famine. And while we, the people of
Coos county, may not be directly responsible for tie main fact, yet the
conditions might, and ought to be, greatly improved. Here in Coos county we
are somewhat isolated from the business centers of the Pacific coast, and are
in a certain sense a country by ourselves.  For this reason our business
methods ought to be so planned as to keep more money flowing in that flows
out. This can only be done by making our exports exceed our imports. There
is no place on earth where this can be done so easily as in Coos county. Of
course there are some articles which we must import; but our resources are
such that we can produce more of the necessary articles of consumption than
can be done anywhere else on this continent. What Coquille needs, therefore,
and the entire country as well, is the  development of our resources so as to
stop sending out money for articles that ought to be produced at home; and the
money kept here for the transaction and encouragement of home business and
trade. It is simply ridiculous for this country to be sending thousands of
dollars to Portland and San Francisco to purchase doors and sash and other
house trimmings when we have every possible facility for manufacturing them
at home, and thereby giving employment to many of our working people. Not
only ought we to supply our own people with these manufactured goods, but
we ought to be competing in the San Francisco market for the export trade of
this class of articles. Coquille City needs a sash and door and box factory, and
it needs it at once, before some other point grasps our opportunity. How much
more sensible it would be for our people to be sending this kind of
manufactured goods away to bring money back to this town instead of sending
out the scant supply of money we have to buy such goods for our own use,
and leave our own native timber to rot, and our mechanics to be idle?...

[sub head.]   From the Gold Mines   Christmas Looked for by the Miners.
Johnson Creek, Dec. 20. --Rain and snow.

     A Merry Christmas to you, HERALD!

     So Christmas is coming! It will come to rich and poor, to kings and slaves,
all alike. It comes to Grover’s crystaline palace filled with all the luxuries that
a nation can afford, and to the poor miners isolated storm—bested huts, half—
buried in snow, as well. How indifferent Nature is to us all! But what a
wonderful difference rank can make.
[M note: goes on to say he’s going to Europe to find prince or duke to wed to
his daughter because a millionaire would not be in favor of paper money, but
solid gold and so presum miners would make more. if such were supported.]
   Yonder, in the depths of the snow-capped mountains, and in the blasts of the
wild storms, remember that there are honest miners toiling away for gold. Yet,
as you say, Mr. Editor, if the results of their hard labor must all go to England,
and not by their own faults, but through the frauds and rascalities of the
Clever Grovelands -- then let the music of Buzzard’s Bay swell, “a third term
    ...Perhaps you would like to know why it is that you, honest toilers,
laboring and by the sweat of your brow for half a century can hardly support
your families today, while a lucky man like myself may become a millionaire
within a few months, and that without much labor, either.  Who said that
Nature is just to all men? ...It is because you are potato diggers, while I am a
gold digger, and because you say that one pound of my product is equal to
16,000 pounds of your crops!  This is what makes me rich and you poor, and
that is why I stick to my principles. See? [more.]  Euclid.

Upper River Dept. The steamer was loaded Christmas when she landed here. 
Trombone band on board and saluted the town with music.  They hesitated
some time before taking the muddy streets of town. None got down over ankle
deep, however.  But it took the boys till after dark to get their shoes dry and
blackened for the dance.  The band did well.  The M.P. boys were ready to
receive them, and intended to meet them at the boat.  But the mud was so
deep, there being no sidewalks, they tarried on the hill until their guests
waddled in them.  Each of the bands played some nice selections.
