police, with Mayor Herman Wise, nud
the Astoria police commission, met
at the city hall lust night, Police Judg,

provide a remedy therefore, notably
among the dance halls.
No final steps were taken last night

PARTY OR PEOPLE, WHICH 7
The Morning Astorlan for one-third
of a century has been a strong, ac
tive, undeviatlng, loyal agent and
representative of the Republican par
ty In the State of Oregon and the
Katlon. It has never swerved nor
dealt doubly nor stood for the sacri
fice el a Single atom of prestige pf the
party here, but, has contributed to
that eminent franchise of power and
effect that has made the name of Re
publicanism in Oregon something to
be respected and appreciated at home
There is a mighty juncture In af
fairs at present, however, that calls for
the most deliberate and far-reaching
action by the Republicans, as such.
It is the passage of the Chapln bill
for the establishment of a railway
commission charged with the Immense
task of warping the railroads back
into the harness of the law and sav
ing the people and industries of Ore
gon from annihilation commercially. A
certain group at the capital is fighting
the bill on the ground that the pre
liminary appointments to the pro
posed commission must be passed up
to a Democratic governor, and that
the remedial results accruing will re
donna", not to the dominant party In
Oregon, but to the Democracy, and
the impetus given to Democratic as
pirations will react to enlarge the
scope of power of the minor political
cult and perhaps pave the way to the
federal senate for the present gov.
This comes with wretched grace
from a party holding the tremendous
leverage of a 30,000 majority in the
State of Oregon that stood Btlll and
permitted the election of George E.
Chamberlain, and if it Is proposed to
recoup that miserable blunder by the
commission of one infinitely worse,
to-wit, the studied and utter submerg
ence of a half-million people and their
abounding capital and Interests to the
eternal rule of ruin already inaugu
rated by the railways of Oregon, then
it must be known once for all that this
paper and its influence rises superior
to party and stands for the common
alty against the free-booters and their
henchmen, who in the name of party,
would cinch forever the thrall of rob
bery and defiant audacity the people
are at last in a position to throw off.
The people, in their extremity come
first in this hour and we beg to go
squarely on record in this behalf.

On the night of the 14th of the pres
ent month, day after tomorrow, the
City of Astoria should get a valentine
of prodigious promise and value.
It is up to her livest citizens to see
to it that she is not overlooked in the
'dlstribtulon of these favors. St. Val
entine's Day here must be made mem
orable for the initial steps taken then
for her big and potent future. There
will be a mass-meeting and there will
be an assemblage of the responsible
men of this city, aided and abetted by
a group of live and capable men from
other centers, to program that future
and make It realistic.
It is said there is no Astoria spirit.
