AVhat will become of usT"
The 112 democrats who voted for
Parker in this city on Tuesday are
asking each other this question. The
awfulness of defeat has been bad
enough, goodness knows, but worse
even than that is this anxiety as to
their future condition of political servi
tude. "It's a dreadful thing to be a demo
craton an occasion of this kind,"
remarked one of the old guard yester
day: '"but T want to know what is to
become of us? Who are we, anyway?
Nothing like this has ever before hap
pened anyone or any party. Our future
what will It ber
The democrats are wondering; the
mental strain Is acute. The other fel
lows have delivered them a solar
plexus blow that has knocked them In
a fit Even the republicans are sorry
for the straight-outs and apologise for
wiping Missouri. The democrats are
The disaffection in this city and state
has been remarkable. It is estimated
that more than 22.000 democrats refus
ed to vote on Tuesday In Oregon. The
conservatives, it will be remembered,
dominated the state democratic con
vention. At that time bitterness was
manifested, and it was not difficult to
ascertain that the radicals meant to
bolt But the most pronounced pes
simist little dreamed the disaffection
would become bo general. Clatsop
county has been no exception in the
state, for everywhere democrats stay
ed away from the polls, or else cast
their ballots for Roosevelt.
Analysis of the vote is interesting.
Since 1900 the population of the coun
ty has been greatly Increased, and the
vote this year should have been much
greater. The registration was 2889,
but it Is estimated that not quite two
thirds of the voters went to the polls.
The republican vote In 1900 was 1329,
while this year it was 1399 a gain of
only 70. This Increase is not In keep
ing with the increase in population, so
the republicans have not made any sur
prising gains here. They polled a fair
ly full vote.
In 1900 Bryan received 688 votes In
the county and two years later Bon
bam, democratic candidate for supreme
Judge, received 717. In the county
there used to be 75 democrats. But
Parker's vote was only 336, a loss of
381 as compared with the vote for
Bonham. The republican gain was
about 5 per cent, while the democratic
loss was more than 63 per cent. This
democratic loss can not well be at
tributed to apathy; it was little short
of political murder. Considering the
Increased possible vote, some 450 or
BOO democrats stayed away from the
Interest centers In the plan advanc
ed for reorganization of the democracy.
The election, in this city as well as in
the nation, has made It plain that radi
cals and conservative wlli not mix
and that the two wings are hopeless
ly apart. It is considered extremely
doubtful that a plan of reorganisation
can be effected which will be satisfac
tory t? both elements. k The conserva
tives will never consent " to affiliate
with the populists, and this is deemed
necessary by the radicals to future
success. Of course, every one realise
that there will be two great parties,
but the reconstruction period will. In
the opinion of Astoria democrats, put
the conservatives out of commission or
Into the republican party.
The Offioial Count.
The official count ot votes was made
yesterday by County Clerk Clinton,

On the Fraser the cohoe pack was
very fulr, but the British Columbia
Packers' Association operated only
one of Its cohoe plant, the Im
perial. Bomo Ashing camps were also
maintained on Tobo Inlet, In northern
waters, and the fish brought, to the
Fraser for packing. This year the sal
mon pack of British Columbia will be
transported to the old country by
steamer, under agreement with the Al
fred Holt Company, operating the
China Mutual nud Blue Funnel liners.
There has been no dllllculty In
maintaining prices uniformly on the
coast, for the decreased pack made
the visible supply so small In the
world's markets, and the demand In
the old country has ben so steady,
that prices really maintained them
selves. To prevent price-cutting next
year In British Columbia, which Is
anticipated with a larger output, a
mutual agreement has been signed by
all the British Columbia packers.
The total pack on the Columbia river
aggregated 378,500 cases, against 332,
980 for 1903, an Increase of 43,620
cases. Alaska s total, on me oiner
hand, notes a decrease of 14H.653 cases,
