Election June 4th, 1906.
WHY DIVIDE THE POWER?
Mr. Chamberlain says it would he the
best for Oregon to elect a republican
legi-latuie and a democratic governor!
Why! Does he rely upon the appoint
ing power vested in the governor to pay
all his campaign debts! Does he rely
upon the veto power to pay such as the
other prerogative cannot reach! Does
he assume to be the whole front, back
and status of the democracy of Oregon,
that he dictates such a policy, or is it
just the desir for office gone daft and
egotism run mad! Whatever it is, it
js farcical. Just why the power and
prestige of republican Oregon should be
divided with the minority party of the
.state, no man, except he be a democrat
.with an itch, may say. There was never
a time in the history of partizan
politics in Oregon when the preservation
of the republican voting strength should
be preserved and exercised with such
rigorous and conservative power as in
the present campaign. The main, soli
tary idea involved is the restitution of
the dominant partv to power. That
done in every department of adminis
trative work, from the governor's office
to the last and uttermost of the con
stabulary of the state, there will be
ample time for considering the division
itiai .Mr. inamoenain is so anxious
about; then, a divi-ion can be made
more in harmony with the "non-parti
zan" quality of what he would do in
the way of division if he might be re
elected governor; then, indeed, as a fur
ther testimonial of his exceedingly broad
and disinterested administration and the
many evidences he has given of his
freedom from partizan influence and
predisposition, perhaps HE might be ap
pointed to one of the numerous, unsal
aried posts of honor with which the
statutory regimen of Oregon abounds.
But, as to electoral division. NEVER,

THE HOUR OF REMEMBRANCE.
This is the hour of grateful remem
brance for every living American, the
old and the young, the man, the woman,
the child. The old, because they have
the deeper knowledge of the dreadful
war of which this day is the anniver
sary, the keener enlightenment of the
tremendous sacrifices of those awful
days, the wider estimate of the glorious
Is Astoria to have that new hotel,
maae possible ov tne energy ana in
dustry of Mayor Wise!
Yes, or no must be the answer and it
must come with some sort of snap or
the opportunity will pass!
It is a question that will test the en
terprise of the city and its capacity for
assimilaing a good thing.
The pnde of Atoria should induce
the readiest possible affirmative to such
a proposition and the quicker it goes
forth to the men who are waiting for it,
the better it will be for them and for
the city. To negative such a proposal
is confession of lethargy, and business
supineness is no recommendation to
outside capital seeking investment here.
Snap it up with a go that means
something, and proves it!
HOW LONG, OH! LORD? HOW LONG?
Is it not about time the property own
ers of Astoria and Clatsop county were
taking due and effective notice of the
judgeship of this county! Are they
uite satisfied with the reckless extrav
agance that prevails in the most respon
sible office of the county! Is nothing to
be done to conserve the extraordinary
expenditures of public money in this
county! Are there no limitations on the
outgo of public moneys in Clatsop! Or
is it a matter of supreme indifference
to the men who put up the great bulk
of this money in burdensome taxes!
These five questions are worth consid
ering, and amenable to an answer. And
the answer must be made on next Mon
day. It is up to the Clatsop taxpayer,
and the best and only answer he can
make, in his own behalf, is a vote for!

Rev. Dr. fieorge Hagen, formerly chief
a-tronomer at Georgetown university,
will assume his duties as astronomer
at the Vatican June 1. His appointment
came upon recommendation from the
foremost scientists of Europe and
America. He is an Austrian by birth
and an American by adoption. Born in
Brcgenz in 1H47, he entered the Society
of Jeu at 10 and finished at Munster
and Bonn. In 1880 he came to the
United States, and eight vears later re
ceived his apointment at Georgetown,
where he devoted hit efforts to stellar
photography in which his research has
made him of the first rank. His stellar
charts are standard and his astronomical
works of the highest value.
