What is euphoniously styled "knock
ing" has become a component part of
the every day life, particularly in As
toria. There is too much jealousy, where
there should be harmony, too much of.
an inclination to "get even" for some
imaginary wrong, too much of a dispo
sition to injure a fellow man by cir
culating evil and often false reports
concerning him. It does beat the world
how jealous we all are. We are always
ready to jump on and praie some fel
low who is engaged in something that
doesn't cross our path. He is a crack
erjack if he is working in some other
field. But the moment he gets into our
front yard we begin to knock him. All
of us are too much stuck on ourselves.
The lawyer thinks he knows more than
the fellow who is on the other side.
When the other fellow skins him he
lays it on the justice. When some fel
low beats our time with a young lady
we always say, "It beats the dickens
what fools these girls wil make of them
selves." There is a business that would
beat Standard Oil profits if it could be
worked. Just buy men for what they
are worth nnd sell them for what they
think they are worth. Knocking is a
habit and prevails to an alarming ex
tent in Astoria and the only exeus that
can be offered or be accepted by the
public is, that it is human nature.
THE WILD EAST.
Thou' has never, been a time in the
liMnry of politic in the State of Ore
in, or in Clatsop county, when party
harmony and fealty predominated to

nominating election. There srenis to

to run for any office hi liltle heart de

retary of state, and in Clatsop county,

storm. Political leaders, with on or
two exception, have consented to leave
the choice of c uulidate with the voter,
with the intention of lining up at the
June elation. It i the first time the

The Wild West i3 a memory, fragrant
still, but fast fading. It has reality only
for worshippers of Buffalo Bill, and for
small bovg so surfeited with dime novels
that they are ready to start afoot to
fight the bad Indians. But the Wild
West we have even now with us. We
have it not merely in the organized wil
ness of Tammany Hall and in the
cynical raiders of Wall street, but also
in those more delightful manifestations
which well upu from the very bosom of
the life of the people.
What could be truer to the imaginary
Far West than this incident carried by
the current dispatcher from a city as
far east as Richmond, Ca.? At the vil
lage of Norwqod a man, name regret
tably unknown, being "too lazy to get
out of bed to extinguish a lamp which
he had forgotten to put out before re
tiring, attempted to shoot out the light.
The bullet hit the wrong part of the
lamp, it is true, but that only shows
that the Wild East is not universally
expert as yet. The saloon, the dance
hall, the gambling palace, and other
buildings in that part of the wilderness,
to a total value of .$20,000 were destroy
ed in the conflagration that, followed.

The Morning Astorian, C5o a month.
1 UNDERSTAND there are voting ami nttrnetive women em
ployed in great nunilers in New York who are paid $1 ami
$5 a week, from which sum they must pay for board, lodging
, and clothe. I think SUCH FACTS Sl'KAK FOR
THKMSKLV.ES. They do not recjniro any comment from
me. The state should require a wage which would insure proper food
to the worker. I do not menu quail and terrapin, but nourishing and
wholesome food, which would insure the good physical condition of
the worker. This should be done NOT AS A MATTER OF
COMPASSION OR 1TIT, lU'T OF COMMON PF.CKNOY,
of race preservation and of self preservation.
No set of beings were ever designed in order to form the stepping
stones of the bountifully inclined to heaven. The poor were not cre
ated in order to afford the rich a chance for the development of their
charitable instincts. It is not a matter of Wing kind to the poor. It
is a matter of giving them ,1 F STICK. Is it not a shocking and horri
ble thing that the workers in every line have been obliged to organize
in order to secure the most elementary conditions of fairness from
their employers J We speak of "capital and labor." IT IS A
' DID YOU EVER THINK THAT EVERY COIN IN EXISTENCE
REPRESENTS A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF WORK, EITHER MENTAL
OR PHYSICAL? WHO DID THE WORK REPRESENTED BY THAT
COIN? DID THE ONE WHO HOLDS IT? IF NOT, THEN SOME
BODY ELSE HAS BEEN OVERWORKED.
The most profound hostility is being developed all over the, world
against the rich. This hostility is more pronounced against the idle
rich than against the working rich. A man liko the lato Marshall
Field, all his life a worker, commanded a certain degree of admira
tion from nil other workers. Rut everywhere we encounter persons
who live in leisure on dividends. WHO IS SUPPLYING THOSE
DIVIDENDS? They can only come from work. Who is working
to produce them ? If there is any one who is doing nothing it is be
cause some one else is working overtime. If you get a great bargain
it U because some one ha been cruelly underpaid.
It wai in feudal Euroi that certain persons made the discovery
that they could not preserve their dignity without wasting their time.
You will recollect that they were RUDELY JOSTLED out of this
idea and ferociously punished for it in the French revolution. Now,
I have not come here with the purpose of alarming anyboi.lv, but did
vou notice that in the recent elections in England men of great title
and hinh position and old and famous blood were ruthlessly refused
the favor which thev asked at the hands of the voters ? It is the same
thing which, much more rudely und impolitely, the WORKERS did
in the French revolution. On the banners carried by the proce.-Mons
of unemployed in London there was a warning note, a dreadful note
''Curse vour eharitv !''
Since my arrival here I have been much questioned as to my in-
. .... .... icittv f fi'- Tn
terest in "working girls. 1 here seem to be nui K)i
GIRLS (URLS AND WORKING (JIRLS. In my life I have
met only girls. I do not know these distinctions.
The regulation of the wages of the worker should be taken out of
the realm of the personal and done in an impersonal way by the state,
because inquiries of that sort are impudent when made personally.
WE HAVE NO MORE RIGHT TO ASK A POORLY PAID WORKER
HOW .MUCH IT COSTS HER TO LIVE AND WHAT PROPORTION OF
HER WAGES SHE SPENDS ON HER FOOD THAN WE HAVE TO
ASK A BILLIONAIRE WHAT HE PAYS HIS CHEF. BUT THE GOV
ERNMENT HAS A RIGHT TO COLLECT STATISTICS FOR THE
BENEFIT OF THE WHOLE PEOPLE.

May Be Domestic
By Mn. FREDERICK NATHAN af New York. 5uAiSUt and lecturer
IIERE is no reason why women who are actively interested in
the affairs of the nation can't be JUST AS DOMESTIC
AND LOVELY TO LOOK UPON as those who lead a
narrower life. Most women have a certain amount of lei
sure, and they prefer to pans that time in talking about the improve;
ment of the city's parks, political conditions and writing addresses for
woman's suffrage meetings, instead of gambling at bridge, going to teas
and attending luncheons which take all the afternoon to eat and a
week to digest. There is a woman living near me who is a prominent
lawyer and who has a host of professional women friends. Well, al
most every day I see them crowded about the carriage of THAT
LAWYER'S BABY, showing just as much interest in its new tooth
