Thb Last Call Fori
If anything were needed to pruvt how
conclusively the Democrat have swung
the "Citizens" and thia campaign Into
the Democratic camp for purely Demo
cartic purposes, a glance at the preson
nel of the alleged Citiaens ticket, with
Eight Democratic candklates out of
the twelve named, would furnUh the
conviction: Here Oiey are:T. F. Laur-
in, police commissioner; J. H. Hansen,
police commissloneri Thomas Dealy,
treasurer; Olaf Anderson, auditor;
Thus. Campbell, street superintendent;
George Kaboth, Dr. W. C. Igan and
WilliHin 'Bell, all for tha council. Of
the other four, none are Democrats, all
are Republicans, a concession made to
avoid the very charge here pointed out,
and to placate a small contingent of
the faction they have hypnotised, ex
cept in the ea of Mr. Martin Foard,
for the police commission, whose name
they are using gratuitously, since he
refused poiut-lank, to accept a nomi
nation at their hands, and who is a
rock-ribbed Republican and will bo vot
ed for aa such without being on either
ticket: 1 this is not a contest between
straight Republicans and Democrats, it
isn't because the Democrat have lost
any of their nerve in working their
famous "catspaw" politics.

Where the New Things Make Their Debut.
Chief of Police Hallock is getting
busy again. His force is out, day and
night, under orders direct and unmis
takable, to round up rotes and voters
for the Dcmo-Dcmi-Semi-Tkket, and
thy are dbeying orders. The chief
hopes to sare his official bacon by -this
show of zeal and interest and to hold
down the office the least of his force

Open Town" and their avowed purpose

Don't run away with the notion that
the Astoria Republicans are in the po
litiosl market this year. They have
nothing to trade, or give or swap or
deal with, among their candidates,
They are a clean, competent and well
balanced lot, and none o them can be
spared: The Democratic "pot pourri'
has nothing whatever of value to induce
even the bare consideration of a swsp.
The Republicans need every man they
have put up, they were put up with a
purpose and that purpose ia their elec
tion for the common good of Astoria.
That purpose accomplished, the Demo
crats will be out of the market.
Think a moment of tha newly con
stituted police cetnmission; with John
W. BaUidge, Martin Foard and W. C.
Laws responsible for the new chief of
police and the working force under him.
It meana something to every man in
the city. It means less time spent in
saloons at night and more patrol duty;
and districts and rules that shall keep
tha men busy and thclty guarded. An
Indifferent chief beget an indifferent
force and makes dead-letters of ordi
nances that should be of deterrent force
and effect. It meana anything but a
"wide open town" and for this one,
last reason, the Democrats are moving
eternally to defeat these men. WelL
the people know these things, and it
the people' turn next.
The crowning shame of Astoria is,
and has been, that with a charter full
of sensible, available and competent or
dinances, she ha meen powerless against
her vicious elements .because of a city
attorney that would not invoke them
and a police chief that waa mighty glad
of it. What are these men paid for?
It smack of something vicious when
an administration carries the munici
pal credit to the breaking point and
imperil tha city' good name, before
warning the people of th danger or
devUintf meaii to avert and rd!t
th dangeroua atrain, and, when It Is
brought to it sense of duty, has nothing
better to offer, than a resumption of th
"wide open town" policy, wherewith to
bolster the crippled tieasuryT Have a
care, you tax-paying clt liens. The cltl
ten' fare as it is being played Just
now, may resolve itself Into a serious
drama of "dollar and cent" actualities
before you get through with it.
The Democratic gerrymander for the
capture of the rlty and county I an
open secret now, and is being sharply,
but quietly resented along other than
Republican lines. The Democrats are
famous "wool puller" but the dsrnetl
wool ain't half long enough. Their
trick was 'hold enough to mesmerise
the "Citlscns," hut the sl.-it Itcpbll
can ia not such a political sucker, and
now that the "lid is off the leaders
sre getting anxious. They are begin
ning to doubt if even the minimised
vote of the dive-puh can do them any
(JhkI. They can comfort themselves
with the unavoidable reflection that
some of the most valuable lesaons in
political life are wrought and taught
by sheer defeat.
