     Coquille, Ore., June 19th.
     ED. BULLETIN:  -- In regards to the escape of Landis, and Mr. Sinclair's
endeavor to give the people the impression that I am to blame in the matter, as
expressed in his article in last week's Bulletin, I have this to say:
     Now, in regards to the law, which unfortunately for all concerned we did
not fully understand, we depended upon Mr. Sinclair, as an attorney, and
supposing him to be the legal deputy district attorney, to enlighten us.  Had he
known the law he would have known that he could not have acted as deputy
district attorney unless appointed by the district attorney.  Now, as to me
arresting Landis, when the body of Eudaily was found the Justice of the Peace
J. H. Cecil was notified, and the McQuigg boys told him that they recognized
the man who did the digging as Landis, whereupon Mr. Cecil told Sinclair
such, in my presence, at Cecil's office.  Cecil asked him if they should not
issue a warrant then, and Sinclair replied that they (the McQuigg boys) would
have to be there to swear to the complaint.  So it was decided by them to
empanel the jury and go after the body, which they did, and when they
returned from the scene they brought the McQuigg boys with them, and after
leaving the body in the old Collier building went to the Justice's office where
Sinclair proceeded to examine the witnesses.  His method of examining the
witnesses before him was such that he seemingly forced the answers from
them that he wanted.  He did not once ask them whether or not they
recognized the man as Landis.
     During the proceedings when he asked a question and the McQuigg boys
answered him, he would say: "That's not Landis; that evidence wouldn't
convict him."  He would also say it in such a harsh and gruff manner which
would naturally frighten the boys who were giving testimony before him.
   In fact, he seemed to be so positive that it wasn't Landis.  Why did he not
accept this evidence? And after refusing to recommend the issuing of a
warrant, saying that there was no evidence against him (Landis), how could
the sheriff be expected to take the responsibility of arresting him.
     The district attorney's office is supposed to be, and always has been a
bureau of information for the sheriff, coroner and all other public officers. 
Now, I am under $40,000 bonds.  Supposing that I had attempted to arrest
Landis after having been refused a warrant and directed by the deputy district
attorney not to arrest him, and Landis would have been shot dead in the
attempt, Sinclair, I dare say, would have been the first man to have made
trouble for me and my bondsman. Had Landis been shot the greatest evidence
would have never come to light, as his running away proved, without a doubt
that he was the guilty man.
     Sinclair did not act as a man who wanted to get at the truth in the matter,
but would declare almost every time he was approached that it was not
     As to him telling me to watch Landis and if he attempted to escape to arrest
him, he positively did not say it, as there was no such conversation passed
between Sinclair and myself, and Sinclair knows it.

Coquille Team Win
The Most Hotly Contested Game of Baseball this Season was Played Here
Marshfield Vs.  Coquille.
   The most important game of baseball of the season was played last Sunday
afternoon between the marshfield [sic] and Coquille teams.
   The weather was little warmer [sic] than necessary, but nevertheless everyone
was satisfied.
   It was decided that the national cudgel should be wielded first by the
Marshfield team.  When it was known that the visiting nine were to have first
bat a wave of suppressed titterings passed over the roof of the grand stand. 
The country maiden all dressed in white clapped her hoe-handle scarred
hands; the city maiden waved one of Lorenz's ten-cent handkerchiefs with a
triumphant wave.  Then there was a calm and five hundred voices cried out:
"play ball." 
   Denning at the bat and Ferry on deck, screched [sic] the score-card man. 
The umpire said, "Play ball!"
   Denning marched to the plate with the air of a hungry chicken freshly filled
dough dish.  A moment later he sent the ball over the second-baseman's head
and hurriedly made first base.  Then Ferry picked up the bat and knocked out
a hot liner, which brought Denning in, himself making the second.  Saunders
died at the bat, followed by Sneddon.  Ferry somehow managed to sneak in
thus scoring two runs for the visiting team.  By this time something like
seasickness took possession of the home team and the Coquille contingency
groaned a doleful requim [as I typed it].  By chance the third man went to the
bench amid wild cheers.
   Baxter was first to the bat for the home team, and as he stood over the plate
he swung the bat one moment then permitting it to rest peacefully in a
horizontal attitude over the plate as if to indicate where he wanted the wily
pitcher to put the ball.  The ball accidentally hit his bat and allowed "Stiffy" to
make first.  Nefzger was the next.  He grabbed the bat, looked wise and after a
few passes, all was over.  Lorenz, the giant of the Coquillers, then sauntered
toward the plate, swung a few times and sent the ball over the short stop's
head bringing Baxter in and making second himself, only to be assassinated
by John Benham who died at the home plate.  Thus ended the first inning --
the score attending 2 to 1 in favor of the visiting team.
   The Marshfielders then came in but died without scoring any more.
   The home team came in feeling very jubilant.  They were retired without
scoring.  Anderson managed to get in the way of the ball in this inning,
receiving it on the head.
   The "lop-ears" then took possession of the field and allowed the
Marshfielders to score one more run.
   In the last half of the third inning Hunt convinced the Marshfielders that
Coquille was still in the ring by scoring another run.
   In the first half of the fourth the "clamdiggers" failed to score, and retired to
the mudflats amid groans and cheers.  In the last half of the fourth Baxter and
Nefzger both scored, amid howls of delight, making the score stand even.
  In the first half of the fifth the visiting team failed to acquire any wealth and
retired to the field.  Coquille scored one in the last half and the game stood 4
to 3 in Coquille's favor.
   The sixth inning was uneventful both teams scoring one apiece.
   Marshfield scored twice in the first-half of the seventh, while in the last half
Coquille scored four times.
   The Marshfielders then came to the bat and laid a big goose egg.  Coquille,
in the eighth, managed to bring in three more tallies.
   In the first of the ninth Marshfield made a gain of three and died, Coquille
not playing the last half.  Thus the game ended with Coquille as the victors --
the score being 12 to 9 in their favor.  +

on the head causing a little delay while he received a sponge bath.
   Nefzger pitched an elegant game.
   The "small boy" did the usual amount of "guying."
   "Johnny" forgot he was playing ball part of the time and took some time in
"chewing the rag" with the spectators.  Keep cool, Johnny.
   "Fingers" hasn't forgotten the game and played good ball.
   "Gravy" Magary walked off with the credits of the field.
   Saunders is all right on second.
   Catcher Ferry, of the "clamdiggers," had a finger badly torn, in the game.
   "Old Iron Horse" Johnson only had three fingers knocked out of joint and
one badly torn, during the qame, but he still played on.
   "Billy, you're wanted at the telephone!"
   Byler's specialty is batting (the air).
   A Coquille girl fainted, in the grand stand, when Jimmie got hit alongside
the head with the ball.  Jim must have a few lady acquaintances over this way.
   Denning played good ball, but Willie's twirls fooled him somewhat.
   Hank did good work with the club.  Good boy, Hank, you're improving.  +

     At a meeting of the city council Monday evening, the question of the new water
system was fully discussed, and  after consideration the recorder was instructed to
advertise for bids on $14,000 worth of 20 year 4 per cent bonds.  The council decided
that this important step could not be delayed any longer, and as soon as the bonds are
sold work will be commenced on the system.  This is a commendable move and we think it
will receive the hearty support of our citizens.  The council in order to clear any question
as to the legality of the electric light franchise pased [sic; = passed] the ordinance granting
it.  The marshal, Dave Johnson, filed his bond, which was accepted, and he was sworn
into office.  +

     A fruit cannery establishment would be a good industry to have established
in our city.  This is the best location for such an establishment, in the state,
and we see no reasons why some effort should not be put forward to induce
such an enterprise to come.  A town that is growing as fast as Coquille is
needs to have more manufacturing industries so as to give employment.  No
town will have these things unless a good strong effort is put forth to induce
the promoters ... We truly believe that Coquille is a first-class location and a
united effort on the part of our citizens might induce such to come.   +
