THAT NEW HOTEL.
Now that the Democrats have got
things all their own. trey and the recent
election has been properly dige-iter, there
is ample time to give to other import
ant matters of local significance; and
among the most pressing is the con
struction and opening of a big, new, first
class hotel Tbe City Council has pars
ed the proposition of the Philadelphia
man up to the Chamber of Commerce,
and the chamber will probably pass it
up to the people who will promptly pass
it back to the "Quaker City" man with
a tag on it that will forever forfeit
his further interest in the matter. This
is the way such questions are usually
dispo-ed of, Tlie one and only thing
to . do, is to route popular sentiment
here for a hotel that shall be credit
to the city and then make it essen
tially an Astorian deal; build it on 1
site that will make it a distinct orna
ment to the city ; build it of local mate
rials, with local money, and put it in
charge of local man who will make it
popular. There is everything here nec
essary for the launching of a splendid
enterprise of this sort and its profits
and revenues generally, should be spent
at home, just as the coat of iU mate
rial and labor should be spent among
the home dealers and mechanics and la
borers. Astoria, is rich enough to carry
out any hotel program that may be
needed or adopted, and we believe she
has public spirit enough to take the in
itiatire in its inception and installs
tion; if the has not, let it be demon
strated first, then call in your out
Only I few changes are found in the
committee li4 of the Houe of IVpre
svntafiwa, anj tboso were already din
counted. The prohmd ascendency 01
th Republican patty and the re -election
of Speaker Cniiihiu make the Hu-e in
a measure, like the Smut, a roiitimi

in it tee appointments at the Wginning o!
each seion yield to an orderly pro-
sreion of niemlcr from lower to
higher place on the commit te.-s in
which tHey have had erieiKe, and in
sure a continuity of policy that is in
general of public benelt. The mo-t con
spu-uous change is the appointment of
the new memltcr of the committee of
ways aiui means who are in sympathy
with tle Speaker's tariff views and op
pord to tbe opening up of the question
of revision at this time.
The most gratifying feature of the
appointment is the promptness with
which they are made. They are an
nounced a week after the. meeting of
Congress, something unheard of for
years. At the beginning of the first
regular seesion of the last Congress Mr.
Cannon was expeditious, but a short ex
tra sesion just before bad prepared
the war for the appointments. The
President had contemplated an extra
session this year in order to get busi
nes under wav before the holidays and
avoid the usual waste, of time until
January, if for no other reason. The
Speaker has accomplished what wa
hoped for from the extra session and
left Congress no excuse for not getting
its work well in hand before the Christ
BEAR IT IN MIND.
Without any individual reflections or
personal propensity in the allusion, it
is quite in line with cogent, consecutive,
political thought to 4l if it was a real
ly &on-partiMH move in the "Citizens'"
party to appoint ai Democrat to the
mayoralty! If a P.epublican had lioen
named, it miht have: been con-tnicd
into a genuine non-patian t-p on the
part of the "Citizens'." hut since it
was a Democrat (and luckily for the
city, the bet in the party here.) the
conclusion is inevitable that it watt the

the headquarters of the association to
which its woikmen belong. There Ls no
room for disputes with walking dele
gates or business agents looking for
'graft" and tk-kled with the notion of
ordering strikes. If trouble arises, it
is settled between tbe manufacturer and
those in highest authority in the union.
It is surmised that there are sensible
and conservative men at the head of
that workingmen's union. It would be a
good example for the study of the house

the whole vast realm, from the Baltic
Sea to the Sea of Okhotsk, from the
Euine to the Arctic, the political ma
chine has broken down and the social
and industrial fabric has fallen or i
fallinz into ruin. Not for more than
a century has the world seen so appal
ling a spectacle, not since the "Cim
merian World-wreckage" of the French
revolution. There may 1 those who
will apply that graphic phrase to the
darkness and ruin which now prevail in
Russia, seeinir that the land of the
Cimmeril was in that empire; and in
deed it seems a fitting for such ap
plication as for the case of France, since
if Russia has not proportionately the
culture which Fran-e then had to le

of failure a was that of Louis at the
death of Mirabtwu.

Monster .... With tliese shall the
"Serpent-queller do battle continually,
and "expect no rest." Thus spoke the
historian of the French revolution; and
every word is precisely trueof the Rus
sian revolution of today, with reference
not to Mirabeau but to Witte. Vast as
are the contrasts between the two men
personally, they must be reckoned as
one in hatred of anarchy, whether of
of monarch or of the mob, as one alo
in circumstances and in responsibility.
That they will not be alike in their
ending we must hoie. Mirabeau died,
and hi uVith was followed by the flight
of the doomed king. Witte mm speaks
of resigning, an incident wltose sequel
might lie no less disastrous than the
death of Mirabeau. For if he is not
able to stand, who else in Russia ru
hope to be? And if his wle policy of
constitutional order is not to prevail,
what can take its place with promise of
more acceptance and of more success?
