t "A DEN OF THIEVES."
The wonderful safety and reliability
of the banking business of the country
is accentuated by the uncovering of such
dens of thieves as the Milwaukee Ave
nue State Bank, of Chicago. So rare are
such exposune that the ordinary citizen
may take solid comfort in the eonelu
aion of the general security and sub
stance of the financial depots of the na
tion at large. The failure of the bank
. in question was no result of hard times
nor due to the universal and decent
causes that sometimes overtake such,
institutions but it was simply and de
liberately wrecked with malice afore
thought and criminal purpose of the
most shameless sort. The law is a grate
ful shield against the encroachment of
foolish and inexpert financing and lends
a, comforting hand after disaster
wrought through ordinary lapses in
business, but it cannot forefend such
wretched instances as this. The people
themselves are frequently to blame for
troubles that assail their local banks, in
their indifference to palpable and well
known habits on the part of bank offi
cers, guch as gambling and the indul
gence of sensuous habits, that no man
veBted with immense trusts should be
guilty of. If there was a bit more
censoriousness in these matters in every
community, openly expressed, there
would be less to complain of and grieve
over. -af::. . . . . .
THE ALEUTIAN INCIDENT.
The killing of the five Japanese in the
Aleutian Islands, by the revenue men
of the United States, is to be deplored
from the abstract viewpoint that it is
always hateful to kill, but in the sense
of a penalty invited .and inflicted, it
has no significance that cannot be ad
judged through the embassies. The men
were there contrary to the law of na
tions. Their leader must have known
this, and knowing it was primarily re
sponsible for the result that ensued.
That Japan should attempt to make a
serious matter of it is inconceivable, in
that the raising of the question to an
altitude of international importance,
would involve her in the sterner and
less bearable rebuke due to an indefen
sible position. She knows this better
than anyone else. She wag a party to
the fisheries convention that has been
Astoria is justly proud of her school

standpoints, in the state. She has an

part of the patronage. She has a

MORE THAN ENOUGH.
The charter-makers of Astoria will
do well to hedge against the abnormal
tendency, nowadays, to the multiplica
tion of petty office in a community of
this sort. It i absolutely essential to
simplify the course of municipal govern
ment rather than hampering and clog
ging it with a lot of non-essential offices
that yield no salaries nor any valuable
service, and make only for the payment
of political debt and burden the city
with a lot of red-tape and confusion

Before the Common Council passes an
ordinance to raise the license of the
Astoria theatres from $100 per annum
to $300, they might ask and answer the
following pertinent query; Why should
this be . done when Portland, Seattle,
Tacoma and Spokane, with dozens of
theatres to Astoria's two and clienteles
ten times as large to contribute to the
support of the houses there, are satisfied
with a revenue of $100 a year from
each of their amusement ventures? And
aside from the injustice of the advance
in this relation, it might be well for
them to consider the fact that the two
businesses now paying license here will
be shut up and abandoned immediately
upon the passage of the new tax, and
the city will be minus $200 per annum,
instead of $400 ahead. The whole pro
position is fallacious and has no element
of equity nor judgment to back it. i
