A WORD IN TIME.
When the charter commission of As
toria shall have undtrtaken its big
task this coming summer, it is essen
tial that it have under consideration,
and provide for the enactment of a
charter clause that shall extend the lim
its of this city far enough east to em
brace the Tongue Point Lumbering
Company's plant and property. It was
all right and just to relieve this concern
of the burden of city taxes when it

business and profit from the local mar

here annually; and the least it can do
is to take its place in the taxable list
of properties of the City of Astoria.

There i far to little attention paid
to Arbor Day in this country. It is a
wholesome and expedient thing to have
one day in each year of our lives when
we naj do something toward the up
building and adorning of our cities tow ns
and neighboohooxls; but lhe rushing
American is leaving the tak, the privi
lege, the opportunity, or whatever each
may style it, to the .women and chil
dren of the country, and such otheis
as have the leisure to observe it. This
is not right. Perhaps the significance of
the day has not yet made itself broadly
apparent to the hustling native, and
time, and the tremendous results attain
ed by those who are noting it in a tang
ible way may impress the negligent one
with a proper sense of his obligations
on the important anniversary.

' A BLISTERING CURSE.
The recent exposures in Portland of
slavery of wbito girls to Chinamen,
are frightful to contemplate, from the
race standpoint; but in this view alone
is the evil any worse than the (slav
ery we have had patent knowledge of
for untold years. The slavery of white
women to the macquereaux of the cities
all over the land, is an old and hideous
story, the horror of which has become
dulled by our, very intimacy with the
vile conditions. It is right to cry out
against the Chinamen for supervening
iii this dreadful field, but what becomes
of our righteous protest when we re
view the extraordinary apathy with
which we regard the beastly facts of
tha case as they exist under our eyes
every day. We re-eiit the encroachment
of the Mongolian and make a very
mountain of it, but wo re
