For want of a more pertinent answer
to the Astorian's srtictures on the
hide-bound policies of Portland in the
development of the state, the Oregon
ian of yesterday seeks to make this
paper amenable to an open disparage
ment of United States Senator Charles
W. Fulton, something that was, and ia
entirely foreign to the will or purpose
of the Astorian. The name of the sena
tor is invoked to avert what must, else,
have been a straight-forward, if futile,
response to the direct challenge we
made that the OregOnian justify itself.
and for another purpose as well, which
is understood thoroughly. The Astorian
takes it upon itself to apologize, for
both papers, for the needless and heed
less nse of his name in the Portlanl
print, and to aver its freedom from all
intent at reflection, even by inference,
Senator Fulton knows what the As
torian thinks of his work and career in
congress; it has been printed often
enough in grateful terms to obviate the
necessity for any allusion to it, and
the Oregon ian will have to stick to the
test of the argument raised, and stifle
us, if it can.
We do not blame Portland for exer
cising every reasonable energy it pos
Besses in up-building the city and mak
ing it a metropolis in every sense of
the word; and this city has, and will,
contribute gladly to the consumation of
Portland's best ambition .along all lines
that do not cross our own welfare. We
do blame Portland, as the center and
fountain-head of all the influence Ore
gon is able to invoke, or express, for
directing that power always and domi
neeringly to, and for, Portland, with a
blasting indifference to every other city
and locality in the state. The ascend
ency of Portland at Washington is all
it should be if only it were used for
Oregon as well as for Portland. That it
has not been so ued, accounts for the
fact that today. Oregon, with vast and
varied resources and boundless elements
to attract and hold millions of men,
with new blood and expanding ener
gies, is the poorest commonwealth on
the Pacifie Slope in population; that
she is fenced in by policies that make
for her inertia, while the "first families"
are glutting themselves with the ex
clusive immunities and privileges forged
wo score of years ago; that Portland
has no breadth that is not marked
and stalled at her municipal boundaries;
that she permits nothing to be done by
the national or state government that
does not include, first of all, an enhance
ment of her prestige and development.
She has centered the destinies of the
state so long within her own precincts
that she has lost all concern for the
growth of her contributing neighbors,
stultifying their very contributory fa
culties by the over-reaching selfishness
that inspires her to thwart and minify
their efforts to live and build up. She
has clung to the moss-back principle of
exclusiveness until Washington, with no
more to back her than Oregon has, in
the way of natural advantages, leads
her with an abounding lead in every
direction. She may depreviate her influ
ence all she chooses through her press,
but the story is too old and to bur
densome to be ousted from the minds of
the people who have got it by heart
