THE NEW SEASON.
Inquiry on all fides elicit the fact
that Astoria enters her new fishing
season with the brightest hopes for
its wiJest and richest results. There
are, apparently, no natural, nor arti
ficial, barriers to a successful issue In
August and no diminution in the scope
of preparation and engagement for
the work and investment necessary.
This is as it should be. and while
things afloat are rushing along sat
lsftorilji things ashore will meet
them at the dividing line and both will
work to the common good through
the prime days of the summer. As
toria is alright and "damned be he
who first re-nigs" etc., etc.
Faith is the leading motive behind
all progress, and there is plenty and
to spare of that commodity around
here just now. Behind this are the
promises inherent in the actualities
presented by James J. Hill and his
fame as a builder and exploiter of
districts wherein he buys, and to this
wholesome predicate Is due the new
lease of life and hope suffusing this
whole country-side. It Is sure and
sufficient and not only Astorians are
looking to it, but thousands of others
with eyes always turned to the best
prospects to be had.

through the past few years and is
quietly forging to the front

to meet the private energies and pe

The gift of knowing when and how to
wait, and what to do while waiting,
are essentials of vital value and they
are being studied and applied here
now, with every indication of reali
zation, and before many years have
passed, Astoria will know the sum of
worth bound up in such a course.

CUE rJtvt of wraith, provided it le aewinl on equal tennt
of conipiM-'tjon that is to say, without the firor, connir
anc OR UlSCRIMIXATioX of government or the
aii of statutes cannot be pernicious to republican institu
tions, but, on the contrary, tends to the healthy activity,
welfare and happine of the community and hence to the
TCITY of such institutions.
There is no danger of the confiscation of private property is this
country any more than in England. But the acquisition of private
property by the dishonest use of public franchisee and the aid of cun
ning statutes is a very different thing. It is more than a menace to our
republican institutions. It is fraught with their DESTRUCTION if
ruffered to continue. The' moral odium of it would in the end debase
us all, and no debased people can in the nature of things remain a free,
self governing people.
It has been difficult to get some people to understand that our rail
roads are not private roads, but are PUBLIC HIGHWAYS, Juat as
much so as our roads which run alongside of them.
A railroad U not a private monopoly, although we must acknowl
edge that those in control of our railroads are, iu their origin and the
very law of their being public highways, subject to the regulation and
control of government. Every one may two them on equal terms.
Any favoritism in rates is absolutely unlawful AND ALWAYS
IT IS THE, GUILTY RAILROAD OFFICIAL, HOWEVER HIGH, AND
EVEN THOUGH HE MAY HAVE ARISEN TO A HIGH PLACE IN THE
COUN8ELS AND GOVERNMENT OF THE NATION, OR IF HE BE
ONLY THE LOCAL STATION AGENT IN THE VILLAGE OR THE
LONELIEST PLACE, WHO SHOULD BE PROSECUTED.
This favoritism in freight rates is the greatest crime of our day and
generation To allow one man or tet of men to have their freight car
ried over the public highways at a rate so much lower than that which
their rivals in biu-iut sti arc charged as to enable them to undersell euch
rivals AND EVEN DRIVE THEM OUT OF BUSINESS is ao
heartle -s and so damnable that we shall be looked back upon by our
descendants and by the future historian as a generation lost to moral
sense for having suffered such a condition to exist so long.
This favoritism in freight rates has been such a DEEP SEATED
abuse that it is not to bo eradicated in years. Those who are profiting
by it namely, the few who control our railroads, our iron highways,
and then principally the great trusts, and lastly politicians and public
men who are in their pay are not to give up easily such a source of
wealth and power.
It Is my belief that the GOVERNMENT should appoint the gen
eral freight agent of every railroad, and it may have to do so, for he,
through his subordinates, could stop the abuse at once.
THE DUTY OF 8UCH OFFICIALS WOULD NOT BE TO FIX
RATES, BUT TO SEE THAT EVERY ONE PAID THE PRESCRIBED
RATE. NO MORE AND NO LESS.

A Woman Tells How to Relievt Rhsu
I have been a great sufferer from the
dreadful disease, rheumatism, for a
number of years. I have tried many
medicines but never got much relief
from any of them until two years' ago,
when I bought a bottle of Chamber
lain's Pain Balm. I found relief be
fore I had used all of one bottle, but
kept on applying It and soon felt
like a different woman. Through my
advice many of my friends have tried
it and can tell you how wonderfully it
has worked. Mrs Sarah A. Cole, 140
S. New St., Dover, Del. Chamberlain's

from pain which It afforJs Is alone
worth many times the cost. It makes
rest and sleep possible. For sale by
