DR. WITHYCOMBE'S ADDRESS.
The republican party of Oregon is
happily equipped with candidates this
year who have an extraordinary faculty
of saying exactly what they think and
what they stand for. And at the head
of the list is James Withycorabe, the
man who is to be the next governor,
whose expressions on the exigencies of
the campaign and the policies to be
maintained by the republican staff of
state officials, himself included, is with
out parallel for conciseness and candor,
and the correlative qualities of honesty
and courage. His address at Logan hall
WHAT A REPUPLICAN VICTORY MEANS FOR
Candidate fur the Legislature.
last night was a masterpiece of elo
quent detail along the lines of Oregon's
needs and his purposes in that behalf,
if the honors of election shall fail to
him; and the whole house was deeply
impressed with the earnest vigor of the
man and his sahvart adherence to every
high dictate of the principles of the
party of which he is the leader and the
exponent. Xo man who listened to him,
whatever his political creed may have
been, could deny to Mr. Withyeombe, the
largess of a frank concession for ability
and manfulness in stating, without equi
vocation, the real inspiration behind
him in this canvass, and of his honest
purpose to fulfill the last pledge made.
His range of subjects embraced all the
vital issues in the projected administra
tion of the state's government, and his
conclusions on each were adequate and
ample to satisfy any man who really de
sires to see stable and equitable systems
inaugurated in this state. He was lis
tened to with profound attention that
spoke louden than any repeated vol
umnes of applause could speak, of the
definite interest his address invoked, and
it is needless to say Astoria has a full
er and better conception of the man and
his splendid program than ever before.
It was a revelation. And revelations
are what compel the respect and loyalty
of men everywhere and at all times.

WHAT INTEREST HAVE WE?
There are times when men who do
the consecutive thinking in this
community are almost forced to the ex
traordinary conclusion that Astoria is
without fixed and calculable interest in
the bai' that liw off the mouth of the
Columbia river. This conclusion is not a
welcome one in any sense of the word,
but it is almost (inescapable at times.
Nine-tenths of the tonnage that crosses
it goes, or comes, to, and from, Port
land, and what does innure to this port
is of a calibre that leaves the deepening
of the water on its crest a matter of
indifference with this city. Here is a
nut for the Astorian to crack; and the
sooneP he reaches a decision on this im
portant score the better for him and
bis city, lie has taken the ,;Ha, Ha,"
from the metropolis of this state just
about as long as he ought to, and it is
up to him to find out the real equities of
the situation and put forth a strenuous
hand for the preservation of his birth
right and the development of his share
in one of the most vital of his posses
sions. That he has slept on his rights
for more years than is any credit to him,
I does not "debar" him, so to speak I

CLATSOP VERSUS CLATSOP.
On Monday next the case of the re
publican versus the ''citizens" of t'lutsop
county, will be up for adjudication be
fore the people. They are the judges,
and upon their fiat reU the hsue and
all subsequent result. The republicans
go More the court with clean hands, a
wholesome phy and in their own name,
style and status. The "citizens" enter
court under a palpable disguise, both as
to name and condition; they will po"e
before the judge, and ask the arbitra
ment of their claims, as citizens, when
the whole Clatsop world knows that, in
reality, they are democrats, and nothing
else, with democratic leaders, democratic
principles, and democratic aims and pur
poses; in fact, THEY ARE DEMOCRATS
and stultify themselves when they claim
to be anything else. If republican Clat
sop is to be cajoled and deceived once
again with this flimsy mask and pre
tense, then it will be because republican,
partisan honor is absolutely dead within
her border; but we are not yet ready to
concede a single thought of thi, and
look for a ringing and manly demonstra
tion of republicanism emphasized by the
biggest majority in years.
HAVE A CARE, GENTLEMEN!
There is a grave question confronting
the voters of the precinct known as
"Astoria No. 6", whuffe the issue of local
option, about to be submitted for decis
ion at the polls, involves the ousting of
a big and valuable industry, the North
Pacific Brewing Company's plant, in the
intert'st of that cause. Whether it is
essential to force thw particular system
of government on this locality, at this
time, following it up, in logical sequence,
with the, dismantling of a large and
prosperous business, that means thou
sands of dollars per annum, to the pre
cinct, the city and the county, is a mat
ter well worth the best and amplest, con
sideration of every pmperty holder up
there. As a menace to the peace und
prosperity to the neighborhood, a word
may be said, in repetition of u. well
known city oflicer of Astoria, who, in
conversation with another citizen deeply
interested in this very question of local
option, declared "that arrests and con
victions in the city police court, as com
ing from Uppertown and Cnioiitown, put
together, were but one-fifth of the cases
arising from ull the rest of tli city."
This shows that on that score, at least,
the people of No. 0 may go with reason
able slowness in prosecuting the disrup
tion of a big and thriving business and

ONE GRAIN OF HUMOR.
In all the Dowie matter from first
to last never has there been a gleam of
humor until the iwi1 came into the hands
of Judge Ijinclis. He has relieved a very
tiresome situation by declining to inter
fere with Dowie's u-e of the tabernacle
at Zion City. "Let him have the place,"
cried the judge. "No matter if only a
few can hear him. Let him hivve it. 1
sometimes make a speech myself, and I
like to have a big hull. 1 like to think
how many people might have had the
pleasure of hearing me if they had only
come. The bigger the hall, the most
gratification a man can get from this
consideration. I-t him have the. taber
nacle." As a matter of fact, Judge
Landis is a caiptal speaker, and it is
doubtful if he ever saw half a dozen
empty chairs liefore him in his life.
DOES ASTORIA NEED IT?
Homebody please tell us whether this
city really need a first-class modern
hotel; say, on (establishment to co't in
the neighborhood of one hundred thousand
dollars? Because, if it does, there is a
chance to get it by the mens contribu
tion of a. suitable lot for the structure.
