Theodore Roosevelt, as man and
PresiJ-nt, Is far too honest to suit a
certain class of politicians In this
country. He Is too clean tor their
methods and plans, and they Intend to
cast htm out If It Is possible. Luck
ily, the thine; cannot be done without
taking the people of the fcuid Into con
sideration, and It will have to be done
In the open, if It is done at all. He
may not succeed himself la the chief-
magistracy; that is for him to decide,
practically: the people, as a whole
would gladly put him back there, and
they will see to It that he is not vic
timised in any way. He is the bete
Bc4r of the rraf!ns political cult of
the country, and the common people
know this and beliere in him, and
beiievls, will see to it that his re
tiremenf is, altogether honorable, and
absolutely voluntary on his part. We
will have him for years yet. as a cit
tsan. if not as an active leader and
administrator, and his influence will
not cease to be effective for many a
long year to come. Primarily,' he is
the logical candidate of his party; if
the party goes after strange gods. It
will reap all it has sown and trifle
besides. Rooaeveltism may gag some
of the political highbinders of the
Republican party, but the policy of
honest, direct, brav and dean deal
ing by, for and with the people, is one
that will not down at the behest of a
baffled spleen nor the Jealousy of any
coterie of aspirants at Washington,
or abroad in the nation. For our part,
we hope he will maintain his ground
against twj assault and outdo and
out -live, the animus already wrought
by his rare and valuable standards of
right living and righteous government

Th fact that scarcely one quarter
of the voting population of the City
of Astoria authorised the adoption of
the new amendments to the charter at
the polls on the ltth of this month, is
a standing reproach to- the real ma
jority of the cttliens here, and it is
well that they art to go to the su
preme court for Judicial analysis, at
the Instance of their author. In order
that the year or eighteen months nec
essary for that review may furnish a
period for reflection on the part of the
men who sat idly by and permitted
the Imposition of several of them. By
th time they are returned with the
affirmation, or the adverse ruling of
the upper court, the recalcitrants may
have realised how completely they
have turned the city over to the pres
ent administration and the folly of
such wholesale reliance. II, takes time
to reveal the blunders of Inertia and
indifference, and when the feather-
edge of knowledeg is biting its worst.

as did their work of deliberate neglect

Now that the New York sun has
cast a reflection on labor to the ef
fect that "the last quarter of the year
has aeen over $106,000,008 added to
the wages of railroad employes; like'
wis the greatest decrease in the ef
ficiency of labor ever noted in this or
any other country," we may expect
to see Samuel Gompers throw sue
cesslve fits, and the labor unions re
solve" whole columns of agate.

An Ohio man stole a street car when
the conductor got off to get a drink
of water, ran the car four miles, col
lected all the fares, and then de
camped,, which leads the Washington
Post to remark that a Pennsylvania
man would have ended by selling the
car back to the company.

There is a disposition an over the
country to magnify the status of Ja

the Pacific world will not be denied
by any one with a grain of perspicuity
or current knowledge of affairs. But
that she is already a formidable, rank
ing power, or a dominant one, is very
much to be doubted. That she has
made magnificent progress and done
conspicuous things no one will deny,
nor disparage; that she is striding
along In the van of nations and do
ing it in up-to-date fashion; that she
has. sptendld ambitions and is living
up to them; that she will be, and
should be, a big factor in the near
future, in the game of commerce and
comity, there are none to gainsay. BuL

States Will Not Have Right to Admit
Undesirable Aliens. -
CHICAGO, Dec. J". A dispatch to
the Tribune from Washington says:
As was anticipated by Secretary
Straus of the Department of Com
merce and Labor that states acting
for themselves are not bound by the
contract labor law has aroused more
or less of a storm of protest from la'
bor parties and from some other peo
ple. In almost every case however,
there Is a distinct misunderstanding
of the existing law as well as to the
scope of the decision of the solicitor
of the Department, which was ap
proved by the Secretary. V
In point of fact there has been no
change In what was the clear Intent
of Congress In regard to the rights of
fateaj Mo umlj slrable. Jmntlsrranls'
who were barred out. by the general
law will be admitted under this decis
ion. The Immigrants are coming to
this country by the hundreds of thous
ands The effect of the decision Is
chiefly. If not entirely to divert a
stream of the better class of imml
grants from the slums of the great
cities, where they are not needed, to
the fields and forests and industrial
enterprises of the South and West
where there Is and always has been
a demand for legitimate labor.
It is not likely, that any American
labor will be adversely affected by this
decision. It concerns only enterprises
legitimately instituted by a state or
territory through Its legislature and
with the" approval of Its governor.

Iowa Lady Has Great Faith
in Cuticura Remedies for Skin
I had an eruption appear on my
Chest and body and extend upward

face were all broken out; also my arms
and th lower limb as far as the knee.
I at first thought it was prickly heat.
But soon scale or crusts formed where
the breaking out was. Instead of going
to a physician, I purchased a oompleto
treatment of the Cuticura Remedies, ia
which I had great faith, and all was
satisfactory. A year or two later the
eruption appeared again, only a little
lower; but Wore it had time to spread
