Harmony ia needed in Astoria. Xot
altogether in a political way, either, but
in the matter of muisc. There are some
splendid pianists Jiere, a few rarely good
soloists' in other branches of instrumen
tation, but there is no composite scheme
of rendering good popular music so that
the public shall hare the benefit of it.
Astoria needs a good band. One that
tJiall do credit to the profession of mus
ic and to the city as well. A stranger
in th city was deploring the absent
of a real good band here, yesterday, and
said he had been three months waiting
for the strains of music lie was used to
hearing in the city he came from, and
added that he would do anything one
lone man might d, to project . and
maintain a fine band in the City by the
Sea. Thus is it missed, and thus is it
needed. A good band is part and parrel
of .the life of an up-to-date town. It is
said the citizens will not support a band
in Astoria. We do not believe it. There
most be something radically wrong in
the musical situation. There is said
to be ajiy amount of individual talent
here. If this i" so, let them get to
gether, hire their own leader, train
themselves! to a point of proficiency
that shall make their organization a
thing to be desired. There are people in
this city who will gladly help to defray
the cost of equipment, if it is only pre
sented to them in the right way, and
once started, there need be no lapse in
the movement until it perfected, and
Astoria is in possesion of as
fine a band as is in the State of
Oregon, but it requires the initiative of
musicians themselves. Pvople are not
going to contribute to something they
cannot see the definite beginning of,
they must Lave an assurance that busi
ness is meant, hen they will do their
part and do it quickly and generously.
It behooves t,V Republicans of this
eity to beware the Mes of June. If the
situation is given over to the D -mot-rat-ic-Citizens
at the forth coming election,
the possibilities of June are not com

HUGE TASK, SLOW WORK.
The Panama Canal Commission ha
spent almost all of the money provided
in the original appropriation, ami Con
gress will be aArd soon after it con
venes for additional funds. This i nec
essary in order t!at the work in the
tone inay be ranted on withoit inter
ruption. It appears from tlte accounts
of the commission that much of the ten
millions with which it begun business
has been spent in preparing to dig the
ditch. When it became a recognized fact
that nothing could be done until quar
ters had been prepared for the men and
all reasonable dangvr of disease had
bt-en eliminated effort were directed to
that end. The result is seen in the dis
appearance of yellow fever and a mate
rial decrease in malarial affections.
Hospitals have b-t-A construct 11 and
medical forces ihave been organized.
Swamps have been drained, and the
waste places of the zone have lost much
of the dangvr they held when the Amer
cans began to change the face of the
1st hums. Water works and sewers have
been constructed and enormous amounts
of supplies and machinery have been
purchased, leaving ti'ie inference that
the commission is almost, if not quite
ready to begin actual construction on a
large scale. Whalt Conjnvss will Jo
with the request for the appropriation
remains to be seen, but it is plainly the
part of good business sense to continue
the work if we are to have the canal
at the appointed time. Suspension of
work will mean a greater loss than mere
loss of time.

served to cement and strengthen the
