KEEP THE COAST III VIEW.
The fundamental duty of the live As-
torian is to Veep in view, constantly
and loyally, the development of the
Oregon coast country. He ia now thor
oughly informed on the subject of the
Columbia river bar; he is told by Col.
W. S. Koessler, the competent, and
we believe, the conscientious, engineer
in charge of the jetty work there, that
the work must be finished in its en
tirety, that the funds therefor must
come in toto, in order that intelligent
and final completion shall be wrought,
without the wrecking lapses that per
mit the havoc of the sea upon all that
has been accomplished and the conse
quent re-building over and over again,
of a vital and costly work. He is told
by Congressmen Bansdell and Jones,
both members of the great committee
in which such huge matters originate,
that the $2,500,000 necessary for its
full and final accomplishment of the
project, cannot be had next year, and,
assuming that they know what they are
talking about, and voice the sentiment
of their colleagues in the House, and
on the committee, it may be taken as
conclusive of a long hiatus in the af
fairs at the mouth of the river.
This being the accepted status of the
bar question, it devolves upon us all
out here on the coast to turn our at
tention for the time being to the is
sues of next and relative importance,
the railroad extensions into this county
and Tillamook, from here and from the
Interior. It is absolutely essential that
Astoria wake up and get in touch with
the beltg of country to be traversed
by the Lytle and Hammond lines; cul
tivate the farmers, the dairymen, the
millmen, the miners, and all the forces
that are to contribute business to these
important feeders. Establish a knowl
edgeable and appreciative intercourse
with these people, make them our com
mercial friends, find out what they want
in the way of export and terminal fa
cilities, and lay the predicate for an
expansive and profitable business for
this city after the railways shall have
been built. There is no time to lose.
Portland and other interested centers
are actively engaged in this very mat
ter right now and it is up to Astoria
to open the ball on her own account
in prompt and intelligent fashion, or
lose the cream of the trade to the keen
er communities. She is on the ground
or nearest to it,, and she will have
only herself to blame, if she is out
bidden and out-ridden.
BIG STICK IN CUBA.
The bumptious Cubans are going to
keep up their little larcical rebellion
until it, becomes necessary for their
Uncle Samuel to stride over there with
his big stick and end the ruction; and
it is likely that his manner of doing it
will have a tendency to discourage the
pup-generals in all future derelictions
of the sort. Of course, he can't very
well kill off the rebel brood at one
fell swoop, but he can put a crimp in
their ambitions that will not unravel it
self for years to come, and that is
what they need. Heretofore they have
had to contend with their own kind, the
factious, the organic home rebel, the
THE BEST POSSIBLE WAY.
To dtvlare thr Mitchell and Maud
CreUicld . alvolutely in-ane, to inoar
cerate them in a home for the inam,
and keep them there for the terms of
their natural Uvea, is undoubtedly the
best rible way to bring the dreadful
story of which they are now the cen
tral figures to an end; and pare the
public of the Xorthwet the further cot
and annoyam of prolonged action in
the open courts. That they are mad is
the kindliest conclusion within reach of
a people who desire to forget and be
rid of them, and their crowd; and the
sooner they are thm dipied of. the
quicker the nu'tin taste will die out
of the mouth of men and a foul and
vicious chapter in the hitry of tne
country will be brought to a grateful
finish. If the wretched cult shows its
head in the Northwest again there will
be ample knowledge and experience in
the hands of the court, backed by an
educated public opinion, to quickly deal
wi'ib, and eradicate, the accursed evil,
it.000,000 DEAD LETTERS.
More than 11.000,000 pieces of mail
went astray in these United State last
year because they were not directed
well enough for the experts to decipher
the names and addresses. Millions of
this immense total went to the dead
letter office, where a lot of it was opened
the addresses of the writers ascertained
and the letters or packages returned.
But in a good many cases the writer's
add res is never found and the letter
is really "dead," when neither the send
er nor the prospective receiver can be
discovered. Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral DeGraw wants to get people into
the habit of writing their own addresses
on the outside of the envelope. This,
he says, would save trouble for ail

World Does Not Owe
Anybody a Living
By Rev. Or. NEWELL DWIiiHT HILLI ot New York
OUXG men should not make the mistake nt tho outset of their
career of saving, ''The world owe me a living." Of ull the
Hack lies that ever defaced tho pugo f a man's life THAT
IS TUK BLACKEST. The world does not owo you a
living, but instead you owo tho world a million million livings. You
can XEVER REPAY what tho world hw. doiio fur you.
There are men living in palaces in Fifth avenue and in palaces in
Great Britain who are as surely FIXAXt'ED PAUPERS as if they
lived in hovels and were supported by tho state,
nnd there are women who carry a donkey's load of
finery on their backi who should also bo classed as
paupers because of tho little that they give to tint
world in proportion to what they receive.
The French revolution will be as a match in the
night in comparison with the revolution Russia is soon
to have, and the aristocrats will reap what they havo sown in fire

For the last few weeks we have been listening to endless attacks
on property. Wc'have heard we are going to the devil because we
are too rich a country; that we need to go back to the days when we
could not boast so much wealth. But what this country needs isn't
more poverty, but MORE MANHOOD TO USE THE PROP
ERTY W'E HAVE. (Jod meant men to g toward wealth, ; he
wants us to multiply our possessions. Tho trouble is not that we an'
too rich, but our knowledge, our intellectuality, our hrm-ty, have not
kept in advtr.ee of our property as they should have d )!i'.
