The Xstorlan guarantees to Its ad
vertisers the largest circulation of any
sewspaper published on the Columbia
THE ASTORIAN PUBLISHING CO.
The Portland Journal, usually ration
ales now off in th realm of pipe dreams
anent the senatorial situation and the
atti'ude of the Fulton forces. Some
day ago The Astorlan suggested that,
Governor Geer having been favored
politically by Mr. Fulton in the past,
he might now show some appreciation
and Join with the majority in electing
him to the senate. The Journal
has figured out that is a concession
thtit the fight for the senate lies be
tween those two men. No more un
reasonable .inclusion could possibly
be arrived at. The Astorlan has re
pentedly insisted, before and since pub-
lication of the paragraph which seems
so suggestive to the Journal, that Mr.
Geer could not hope for election, or
even for complimentary support. So
far as The Astorlan is concerned, it re-
. gards his candidacy as nonsensical. It
Is unfair and the Journal knows it
to attribute the paragraph in question
to a change of front on the part of
Senator Fultoa and his friends. They
know quite well that Mr. Fulton will
be elected to the United States sen
ate, for his present strength is suffic
ient to insure the success of his can
didacy. Governor Geer and his friends
and the Journal is one of them, for
a purpose that can never be realized
are quite ready to elaborate upon any
trifling reference to the Marion coun
ty man's aspirations, and to make it
appear that he is a formidable candi
date. If Governor Geer stood any
chance of election to the senate, there
would be ample reason for his candi
dacy; but everyone knows that his
claim to the senate Is purely spectacu
lar. Mr. Fulton's friends are not fight
ing anyone in this campaign, but have
confined themselves to legitimate effort
In behalf of the man of their choice.
Of course. It -would Immensely please
the esteemed Journal to create a fight
between the logical candidate for the
senate and some of those who have
"butted into" the arena, but its hope
will not be realized. It might be ad
ded for the Journal's benefit that Gov
ernor Geer is perhaps as strong a can
didate as any other man who may pos
sibly undertake to wrest the toga from
the man who should and will wear it.

fs t question of timely help. It is the
same thing in disease. Many a time the
doctor says of a man whose condition is
. hopeless, "If you'd begun in time you
might have been cured."
This is especially true when the dis
ease affects the lungs. Delay is danger
ous. The timelv use of Dr. Pierce's
Govden Sled'cal Discovery will result in
a quick cire of deep-seated coughs,
bronchitis, and weak lungs. Even when

amount of t-WOO, will probably cause
an immediate revision of the theory
that crude oil is destined to take the
place of coal as fuel for deep-water
steamships. The Progreaso was be
ing converted from a coal burner to an
oil burner and the .work was practically
completed. She had on board 14 oil
tanks, containing about 400 barrels of
oil in all, a relatively small amount as
compared with the amount of fuel nec
essary to be carried on a long voyage.
Suddenly, without any warning, one of
these tanks of fuel blew up, followed
at brief intervals by the explosion of
the other tanks as the blazing iluld
reached them. The vessel was wreck
ed and practically destroyed, the w harf
at which she lay was burned, eleven
men were killed and a score of others
injured. The theory of the explosion
is that gas generated in one of '.he
oil tanks. The use of oil as a fue' for
steamships Is still in the experinu aUU
stage. " Such of the experi men's ns
have been made were partially su- cess
ful. There has been some complaint
that boilers deteriorate much more
rapidly where fuel oil is used than
where coal Is the fuel; but as an offset,
the saving in labor in stoking has been
put forward. The relative cheapness
of oil as compared with cool has not
been determined; local conditions, of
course, being prime factors'. In places
where oil is produced and coal has to
be imported, the odds would prob.ibiy
be In favor of oil, and the converse of
the proposition would likewise be true.
But if there are such deadly possibil
ities Involved in the use of oil as fuel
for steamships as demonstrated In the
case of the Progresso, It Is safe to say
that an Immediate check will be put to
the conversion of coal burners into oil
burners on steamships. If the govern
ment inspectors do not change their
views and refuse to grant licenses to
oil-burning vessels, It Is quite certain
that the marine insurance companies
will refuse insurance to such vessels,
unless it can be demonstrated that
there was some peculiar feature of the
i-rogresso disaster which can be
guarded against in the future. If oil
is too dangerous to use as fuel for
steamships, the relative cheapness of
coal will continue to be an important
consideration in determining the com
mercial supremacy of seaports.
