whoa views cf life and the doings ol
the world are circumscribed by neigh
borbood lines. Publicity prevents
crime. The maxim Is true in a gen
eral apDllcatlon. but the kind of pub
licity afforded by the aensa'.lonal
Journal and the novelist who revel
in stories of criminals and their ways,
is fa more Irkely to foster than to
hinder the p?rptratlon of criminal
acts. When a train robber becomes a
bandit king boys and young men cf
criminal tendencies will asplra to no
toriety as train robbers. How many
boys and young men hav thus ben
deliberately and carefully educated as
professional criminals la difficult to
say, but the process Is still going on
and the criminal class Increased.
It la a matter of record that most ot
the crimes committed In Astoria, and
In Portland, ara by young men. whose
education was acquired by reading the
Hearst system of yellow journals.

the o her Hearst Journals. The Ore

intelligent and refined, and the other
papers have their risders from the
lower and vicious flment. Xot but

Another reason for the pres nt pros
perity la the enlargement of the mer
cantile establishments, comparing
favorably with the same tins In Port
land. Time was when a large propor
tion of the population did the most ot
their trading In Portland, whereas to
day most of It Is done with the home
merchant, and a large volume ol
money Is Irpt at home tn the leglti
mate channels ot trade. No city can
prosper when the money Is constantly
sent out of the city for supplies and
necessaries that can be purchased a
home. The Astorlan justly, too, claims
credit for the Increase In population
and wealth. It Is the, only newspaper
that has contained descriptive articles
on Astoria and CT tsop county, and Its
wide circulation has given publicity to
the many natural advantagea and re
sources and the opportunities for 1e
gttlmat Investment, and this has b?n
done without a dollar of recompense,

Astoria is becoming essentially a city
of home builders which makes sta-
blSl.y and creates a solid foundation
for future greatness, while its popu
lation Is essentially cosmopolitan, yet
the element that once controlled the
business and political affairs of the
city Is being supplanted by the re
finement and intelligence of the new
comers and a notable chaneg has taken
place which is felt In th; church and
social life. This influx of the more
moral and refined class has shown Its
