BE SURE AND REGISTER
The success of the Republican ticket
at the ensuing June election, depends,
to a great extent upon harmony in
party ranks. In the primary nominat
ing election it was umkrstotid, that
there would be no interference, and it
is believed none has been attempted, the
idea being, to leave the nutter of nomi
nating candidates exclusively in the
hands of the rank and file, those who
have not heretofore had an opportunity
of expressing an opinion as to the
choice of party candidates. If this de
termination is strictly carried out, it
will do more to solidify the Republican
party in the city and county, than all
the eloquence of orators after nomina
tions have been made. An effort has
been made to secure party harmony, and
nothing should be done to interfere in
any way with the wishes of the people.
It is to be pre-umed, that all candi
dates fop the nomination will abide by
the choice of the electors at the polls,
and if this is adhered to, there can be
no doubt of the result.
It is a well known fact, that Astoria
and Gatsop county are Republican on a
strict party vote, but there has be-n
more or less friction, more or less jeal
ousies and old scores to be settled, re
suiting often times in the defeat of
tha dominant party and placing the
city and county government in the
hands of the Democrats. It is to be
hoped that all animosities will be buried
and that the party will unite in the
support of the ticket that may be nomi
nated by the people at the primaries,
irrespective of their political differences

If the great American novel is writ

Evidently the lilial contributions by
the amateurs who buy storks on mar
gin has eased up the stringent demand
for money in Wall street ipiite a lot.
All right enough for the good citizen
to hope that the bet men will win in
the county election, but how can it be
long a the be-t men invariably re-
tu-e to liecoine candidates:

CAUSE OF PANICS.
Some pessimist's throughout the coun
try are predicting a panic, basing their
opinions upon the vast accumulations of
wealth by a few individuals and cor
porationa. The cause of panics i a
aubject on which nearly every man has
an opinion, from the political econo
mist to the corner loafer. Good times
or hard times are ordinarily the most
powerful agents affecting the welfare
of political parties. In this country
ttey makf or mar the fortunes of
public men and party organizions.
The people of this country have been
unfortunately taught that good times
or bad times are largely the result of
this or that party being in control of
national affairs. Other causes aligned
are "over-production" a high tariff, a
low tariff, too small a volume of money,
an inflated currency, poor crop, etc.
There is probably no subject of anything
Jike equal importance on which there h
such a confusion in the public mind.
Because business has been dull in As
toria the past winter, a few predict the
dawn of a panic. The truth of the mat
ter is, there is just as much money in
Astoria and throughout the State of
Oregon, as there was a year ago. One
cause of the present dull season in As
toria is directly attributable to the
Lewis and Clark fair, and the same
exists in other sections of the State. A
large volume of the circulating medium
that usually flows through the channels
of trade, was taken to Portland by our
own .people, spent in seeing the fair

Manila Papers Say General Wood Was
Justified in Killing Women.
MANILA, March 23.-The American,
Spanish and native press of this city,
in commenting upon the recent battle
of Mount Dajo, sustain Major-General
Wood against the charge of killing
women and children of the Moro out
laws during the action, which they
claim was unavoidable. They are un
animous in their expressions of regret
at the manner in which the unfortunate
occurrence has been misrepresented by a
portion of the press in America.

Recently I saw a letter from a millionaire referring to the death of
a elerk who faithfully 1 m-1 erve.l him thirty ears. The man who
wrote this letter i- rated at .Jii,(iiii,(Mii. h, this letter, after disposing
of several matters, he referred to the death of his old employee inci

My word to the man who would succeed is, "Save your soul." "For

Perhaps it may he necessary to le cold Hooded in Lusiwsa for tho

If an inhabitant of auother planet could come to ono of our big
cities perhaps he at first would find it ruled by the law of felfishnesw,
the almighty dollar. Later, he would find underneath all the SILENT
FOKCES OF KIGIITKOUSXKSS.
The poAir which sustains the business world is INDIVIDUAL
CHARACTER. While busy men are planning and struggling to build
up their material fortunes, every word, every action, every thought of
theirs is .waving that eternal structure, their individual characters.
That it is the groundwork of the business world is shown by the credit
system. I am a dealer in credit. I sit all day dealing in it. Vet I find
it elusive. I think sometimes it doesn't exist.
A man comes to my office for a loan of $ luO.HOO. I hand his note
to the cashier with instructions to credit him with .100,000. I have
made the loan, have increa-ed my bank's deposits AND HAVE
PAID OUT NOT A CENT. The m.-m draws a cheek, gives it to an
other of our e-i, turner-, and he depo-its it anew. Other banks get
cheeks against us. The clearing house wipes all out except a balance
bo small that the eas!i required to settle it is too small to notice. Am
for that we give A CHECK.
So credit, whether that of the government, the business house or the
individual, is the LIFEBLOOD OF MODERN BUSINESS, or,
comparing bu-iness to a structure, it is the mortar which binds tho
bricks together. And credit rests on the foundation of character. At
least 90 per cent of all business is transacted on credit. And, as char
acter is the foundation of credit, so TRUTH is tho foundation of
A person who is known as a man of his word, whether gpoken or
signed, sealed and delivered, has the very best equipment. And this
includes frankness, which does not mean telling all you know, but does
require that you must not keep back what the other man HAS A
RIGHT TO KNOW.
A man to succeed must possess modesty. The boastful man is un
der the disadvantage that all of his statements aro DISCOUNTED
whether they are true or not. Conservatism also is a necessary attri
bute. Commend me to the man who is not in a great hurry to get rich,
but is satisfied with the old plan of gradually adding to his pile and not
trying to get SOMETHING FOR NOTHING. Occasionally you
see a man get rich by speculation, but my experience has been that
when a man goe9 up like a rocket it is not long before he comes down
like a stick, AND A BURNT STICK AT THAT.
1 have several rules for young and for old. The first is, "Save your
money.'v I say it earnestly, not because I want to increase the deposits
in lank., but because IT IS NECESSARY. I have had experience
with young men. I have seen a few go wrong, lose their positions
through dishonesty, without any fuss being made about it, but they
were damned all the same so far as their futures were concerned.
