A5TH03TY COJISTOCS; WATCHDOG!
For thirty-five years Anthony Corn
stock ha been wtrW.:-i ol the moral
of New York City, aad iacideetny, of
the conn try. He u one of tse most
courageous and nneompromtMisg enemies
of the vicious and lewd ia 90cie.tr, ia
the whole nation. Nothing escapes him;
be ia at the head of a great department
of the police bureau of New York, and
his only aim is life is to safeguard the
decency of the young. He is a master
detective and one of the most notable
and successful officers, in his line, in the
world. He has just made a raid on one
of the art galleries of 3ew York for ex
hibiting too many and too suggestive
pictures of the nude, and while he may
be getting a bit crotchety and super
censorious in his old days, well bet a
free copy of the Astoria n, he is right
in his premise. He has mighty few
blunders to his account in the long drift
of years in which he has figured as the
arch-enemy of the nasty; and the pre
sumption is a safe one that he is strict
ly within the limits of his authority in
the present instance. His name is a
terror to the' corrupt and licentious all
over the land.
THE WORD OF A FRIEND.
Richard Harding Davis, the well
known novelist, comes to the rescue of-
the good name of his dead friend, Stan
ford White, the victim of Harry Thaw's
murderous gun, lately in New York.
Mr. Davis declares the early accounts
sent out defaming White's name and
record, were inspired lies, and utterly
without foundation. That Stanford
White was a clean and wholesome man,
with the highest and purest motives, and
led a life that was simply irreproach
able, from any view-point honorably
taken. This mean much. Men of the
stamp of Mr. Davis are not given to
making false moves, nor statements,
even to spare a friend who is palpably
unworthy the effort. And in confirma
tion of bis loyal defense, it may bs
noticed that the 1c10us stories scat
tered broad-cast immediately after the
murder and dealing with Mr. White'
alleged licentious and ignoble courses of
life, have ceased utterly since the stal
wart and magnamimous vindication in
augurated by this noted and thoroughly
respected author and gentleman. Hard
ing Davis speaks by the card when he
speaks in this wise, and he will be duly
ASTORIA'S PLAIN DUTY.
It is Astoria's plain and simple duty
to put herself in shape for the proper
reception and entertainment of the
traveling public, before another summer
solstice shall swing upon her. She must
have a new and modem hotel, whomso
ever shall build it. She is the only city
of her size in the country so badly
equipped in this particular, and the
laches is being remarked on all sides.
There are hundreds of people who would
make this city a summer habitat, a
common center from which to radiate
in a hundred directions to points of in
terest round about, if only she had a
place to house and feed them as they
demand housing and feeding. Whatever
else she may do in the quest for popu
larity, h must mt longer neglect this
arch-need. It is contributing to her
injury now, far more than her people
imagine, and another season of delin
queney will work her poltiv detri
went. There is nothing that should
command a deeper nor readier interest
THE OTHER AKGUJTE5T.
To check the political ambitions of
the Labor I'nion leader, the National
Citizens' Industrial Association ia sub
mitting to political candidates through
out the country two questions:
"Have you pledged your support to
the Labor trut or to any other trust
organization, or corporation seeking
special legislation V
"H1 you or will you not represent
the citizens a a whole and seek to
protect them from class legislation
whether by organized capital or orga
niied labor when such legislation Is in
the interests of the few to give power
over the many!"
The plan provides that the names of
candidate who stand for labor or capi
ta trusts shall be supplied to the differ
ent citizens associations now organized
in over 500 town and cities in order
that citizens of all parties, who are op
poed to cUs legislation and organized
trust methods of seeking to control
legislation can vote for anti-trust candi
dates at the coming election.
The citizens propose to support public
men of either party who stand free from
pledge to any organization. They refer
to the effort of the labor leaders to
secure the passage of an anti-injunction
MIL as a direct step towards anarchy
and an effort to take away the power of
the courts and transfer it to the labor
trut or a capital trust, whichever might
choose to revenge itself on workingmen.
To strip the courts of power to restrain
organizations from attacking men or
property, would place citizen and com
munities in jeopardy, from any organi
zation either of labor or capital which
might choose to ue violence. Labor in
its proposed attacks upon other work
men and property; capital if it should
see fit to hire men to attack union
This movement of citizens is based
upon the theory of government that the
community must protect its member
from control of the people by any orga
nization, class or trust.

tor uoiumaijuu as i nuva states senator,
and who is on a visit to this city, has
given the Post-Intelligencer some inter'
estinff facts about the workings of the
now law in his state. It is quite evi
dent that Mr. Mulkey is not an unquali
fied admirer of the new law. He criti
cizes it sharply in some respects, but he
also said: "It seems to have annihilat
ed completely the party boss and there
seems no manner or way in which politi
cal manipulation can be successfully re
sorted to in a primary election."
If this stood alone as the sole argu
ment which could be made in favor of
the direct primary, it should be suffic
ient to mass the great majority of the
people behind the demand for ita enact
ment. A system which annihilates the
boss and makes for good services rendered
the people, not personal sen-ices render
ed the bos', the effective method of ad
vancing the political fortunes of the in
dividual office holder or office seeker,
guarantees that the public will be in
finitely better served in the future than
in the paet.
If the direct primary annihilates the
party boss system and closes the door to
political trickery and manipulation
through which to control nominations,
which are substantially equivalent to
elections, the state which adopts the
direct primary is to see a cleaner era in
politics and a higher order of public
service than it has ever witnessed in
the past. It is certain to have in office
