V ASTORIA'S CHARTER.
. THE PLEAS Or GUILT.
I nited State District Attorney
Henv announces that the nt three of
the group of land thieve wider indict
ment will enter plea of guilty, and
thu spare the government and .the
country the- time, expense, and miser'
able d.-tails, of their respective trials;
conclusions for which the people may be
devoutly thankful. It is done, also,
without doubt,' to court the leniency of
the judge in the premises, and to make
the very best of a wretched bargain all
around. The people are aware, and
sick, of the entire matter, and it is
hoped the whole crowd of criminals will
be as careful as Mayor Davis, of Albany;
Special Agent Clarke E, Loomis and
Salmon B. Ormsby, to spare the country
the repitition of their dirty dealings
with the trust they were charged with.
Thei is plenty of room for the correla
tive hope, that the court will see to it
these men are quickly disposed of, along
with the rest of the gang, and the
state be rid, once for all, of the incubus
of shame it has borne so long in th

The local charter -commission is tak
uig hold of its big task in commendable
fashion, and giving due despatch to the
detail confronting it. It is no small
thing to revise a faulty charter and the
. work done for Astoria in this connection,
should be thoroughly well done. At the
same time, haste is the last quality of
the undertaking. It requires thought,
comparison, confonnity, clarity, effec
tiveness; and these things cannot be
imparted in any sort of a hurry.1 Luck
ily, the commission has ample time be
fore it, and may do excellent work if
the time is utilized and devoted to de
liberation and consideration insperable
from such engagements. With an abund
ance of fine models from which to cull
the best things in municipal vogue, there
is reason to believe that this city is to
have a modern and progressive basic
. law; and she needs it badly. The people
have a deep interest in the work and
should manifest it by suggesting every
good element they know is lacking.
They will have to pass upon the new
charter before it goes up to the legisla
ture, and tbey should be certain it con
tains the best of everything.
The anti-automobile craze has not
yet reached Astoria, simply because she
has too many hills, and not enough cars
to talk about. There are but three or
four in the whole community, and the
grades act as a barrier to undue speed
They cannot speed up th hills and dare
not speed down them. The automobile
w, however, one of the things that has
eome to stay; it is part and parcel of
the life of today, and what of offense
it may give in the hands of irreepen
aibles wjII be forgotten when it shall
be properly adapted to the rules that
say all mediums of safety and con
veniencg in the daily life of man. There
is no use in crying it down; it will
neither down, nor out! The splendid in
vention is but in its ineipiency, and the
years will demonstrate it to be one of
the great essentials of human progress,
and the sooner the( better. With im
provement in the machine will come its
classifieation to the needs of the poor
man, with abated prices to match, and
once it has passed the stage of a luxury,
it will be wonderfully popular, as it
should be. Half of its unpopularity to
day arises from the almost universal
inability of the people to own one.
BANNER APPLE STATE.
Illinois is the banner apple state of
the union. This information will be
surprise to apple growers generally, as
the opinion has been prevalent that
was laggard in this direction.
The production by the leading states
is as follows: Illinois 0.000,000 bushels
of apples and 13,000,000 trees; Kansas,
8.000,000 bushels of apples and 11.000.000
trees; Missouri, 6,000,000 bushels
apples and 20.000.000 trees; Michigan
3.000,000 bushels of apples and 10,000,
000 tree; Arkansas, 2,000,000 buhels of
apples and 7.000,000 trees.
SCHOOLS, AND NERVES.
The recent public striotures upon the
prejndicial effect of the school curri
culum on the nerves of the children has
invited the comment of one of Astoria's
oldest and mot respected teachers, to
the following effect The main respon
sibility for the reactionary effects allud
d to, lies almost wholly with tha par
ents and guardians who fail to regulate
the lives of the pupils OUT OF SCHOOL
HOURS. The children are indulged in
many ways calculated to injure them ; in
ing, dressing, exercise, sleeping, em
ployment in leisure, hours of home
study, and various other lines of family
habit and appointment. Were these
things so ordered as to spare the child
undue stress of study, and time, the les
sons would be wrought without so much
It will require something more than a
lot of superannuated democratic sens
tonal jrolf players to . put President
Roosevelt in a hole. The President is
thoroughly at home on the links, and
understands all the ins and outs of the
lhe railroads, the packing concerns
and the oil tru6t have had a world of
trouble during the past year. It might
have been better for them had they
followed the example of the paper trust
It is said that the Mormon church will

America has absorbed more than

To threaten people with death if they do not trv certain cures ia
very lucrative. The medical profession write letters to the newsnanen

human race by vivisection.
It is only of late years that some people have wanted to know whv
h is that in spite of modern remedies there are as menv peonlo who die
i the diseases against which they are directed 4AS BEFORE. The
doctors reply that the absolute mortality mav be as rrcat as before, but
that the "case mortality" has diminished. If t!.is w no, it shows that.
although they cure their patients, THEY MUST CREATE THE
CASES THEY CURE.
When fashionable surgeons can earn in a single dav from sixty to
three hundred guineas, it is evident that they have a strong pecuniary
motive for mutilating their fellow creatures. I cannot help noticing
that there are fashions in operations. The surgeons are always discov
ering that certain organs are unnecessary and ought to lie extirpated.
At one time it was the tonsils, then the uvula, and now no self respect
ing person would think of going about with an appendix.
For a time formalin was all the fashion. One medical man tried it
on some pauper, then on something a little nioro expensive namely,
rabbits and finally on himscli. It was discovered, however, that
formalin does not kill the tubercle bacillus, but, on the contrary, the
tubercle bacillus has a peculiar relish for it AND THRIVES UP
