Police Cammiuiontr Gordon
, WHILE It Is' generally to be regivt-tc-d
that the city council rejected
Mayor Suprenant'a first choice for the
position of police commissioner mde
. vacant by the resignation of John Kopp
euch regret being occasioned by the
fact that in a city where the cHiaen's
ticket Idea holds such supreme away
the council cannot separate Itself from
the bonds of partisan politics, the
election of S. S. Gordon to ine position
will be received with approval. Mr.
Gordon was a nember of Astoria's first
police commission, serving a term of
six years, and achieving a reputation as
t capable, fearless and painstaking of
ficer. He brings his previous experi
ence and record as a man who is cap
able of fair and Impartial judgment to
the office, and assumes his new duties
with the support of the people behind
him. .. , : ,
In the past the affairs of the police
department have been either handled
carelessly or sadly neglected. The ab
sence of two of the police commission
ers from the city fos a period of months
and the regrettable Illness of the third
commissioner, left the control of the
department In the hands of the chief of
police, who In turn received his advice
from the city attorney. These two of
ficials lacked the 3tarrfina to rule the
department with an Iron hand, and the
result was that the first formal rule
they attempted to establish was
laughed to scorn by itinerant gamb
lers, who dictated Just what conditions
should govern the privilege of operat
ing In the city.
Mr. Gordon, we know, la not bound
by political ties to the gamblers and
saloon keepers of Astoria. He asks no
favors at their hands, and has none to
distribute. With such a man at the
head of the po'ice commission it is safe
to predict that there wflf be a business
like administration of the affairs of
that department of the municipal gov
ernment from now on.
Regatta Decoration -

regatta have reached a point where the
queen has been elected and the admiral
selected, the time has come for active

In the success of the regatta, and in

There is but a short time between now
and the opening of the regatta, but
there is time and to, spare to create"
and adopt a scheme of decoration such
as Astoria has never before seen. Let
the city be resplendent with brilliant
illumination and decoration, and when
the festivities begin let Astoria be
decked in gala attire.
THERE axe more kinds of regatta
decorations than the mere display of
bright colors and flag. The beautlfl
cation of the streets must be insisted
on. By this we mean that some steps
must be taken to sluice the main
thoroughfares with water, to' wash
away the accumulation of debris. The
streets should be clean and bright for
the regatta, to enhance the beauty of
the festooned buildings. Clean the
