The word tome froixk Sin , FrariciSctf,
that there will is a tremendous eJdH
made down there in the ner future
to break down unionism and establish
a general "open shop" policy through
out the eity. ' It will never be done.
In the first place the principal of
unionism is an integral essenee of hu
man activity today and cannot be dia
i lodged, no matter what ia resorted to,
to effect the rupture. It is part and
parcel of the organic life of the people
and of the greater part of them, and
ii cherMied too deeply to permit eue
cessful invasion. vWhat of annihilation
might be attained at one place would
be countered by a hundred defeats in
other localities; and. the only scheme
of attack that would carry any weight
would be that which is founded upon
the inherently bad qualities or principles
known to exist in the cult, and these,
if any da exist, will be found to com
pare very favorably with the same
ugly principles that inspire organized
capital at times. ;
The builders and contractors and
capitalists will throw a torch of incal
culable evil into the arena of the work-a-day
world if they start in on any
such program as this, and the end is
utterly beyond human reckoning if once
such a policy is inaugurated.. It, has
been talked of, times without number,
bet'ore, but has always subsided to
nothingness, when those responsible for
its initial demonstration were called
upon for action.
Both labor and .capital have much to
answer for and to amend,in the big ad
justments of their differences; capital,
far the most, by reason of its holding
the primary place of power in the gov
eminent of conditions which make for
work of all kindsj labor, for the riotous
violence and vicious destruction of
property, the controlling factors of their
codes of reprisal. It is up to both gTeat
elements to strive for a new and decent
basis of regulation of their) wide indif
ferences; and since all voluntary over
tures have invariably proved abortive,
.the time may arrive for the interposi
tion of the state.
We believe the situation has reached
such importance that the people can
no longer ignore it; that some broad
provision of law must be made to serve
the common interest, by intervening to
fix, ami finally determine, ; the great
mooted questions that arise, and from
which the public iuffera as much, if not
more, than either of the parties at
Interest. The day la not far distant
when such recourse as this will be im
perative, and any steps taken in that
direction now, will serve a good purpose
In clearing" the way for a wise and
1 tappy adjustment as time and circum
stance shall indicate. It is worth any
man's while to carefully review the is
sue and ilo what be can to placate the
evil tendencies that are brewing under
the hateful and disorderly tactics now
used by each of these immense ele
ments. The state has been the salva
tion of many another desperate conten
tion, and may be again.

UP TO THE YOUNGSTERS.
The idea of - placing the control and
development of the coming Fourth of
July celebration in the hands of the
young people of , the Astoria High
School, is a good one and will serve
many excellent ends; not the least of
which will be the conferring on these
clever youngsters a deeper sense of real
sentiment behind the great festival and
a prouder phase of patriotism engen
dered by the work of demonstration, but

At first these spots will be seen To spread themselves lflte two

will observe a sensible diriiinution In Its heat and light
When millions of centuries shall have passed, this loss of heat
will have become so great that ALL ORGANISMS on the planets
will perish to give place to new beings constituted to live In the cold.
But an age will come when the sun, first growing dark red, then
obscure, will cease to be the Bource of heat to the-family of planets
.which have so long drawn from itjheir magnetism AND THEIR

nine success of the commemoration.
It will be an occasion they will never

the dearer and more effective that mem
ory will be to them in years to come.
They should be encouraged on all sides,
but so far as it is possible to leave the
details and plans in their own bands,
this should be done, so that the entire

the whole thing well and their eager
ness to achieve the glory of the hour

The Port of Columbia law, which is
presumed to go into effect today, is
proving one of the worst trouble-breeders
ever devised at the Oregon metropo
lis, and before it is done with, the aver
age Portlander will wish he had never
heard of it. (Apropos of this, it may
have been observed that the Morning
Oregonian has never given the measure
the support its authors and backers had
expected and which might have been
due to any junt and popular measure,
but has treated it locally, half-heartedly
and with grudging commendation that
has, at last, convinced . the thinking
people up there that there is nothing
in it, save another tax-tug in the bur
ensome harness they are hauling in.)
They have come to the conclusion that
it was devised solely for the benefit of
a few commercial houses and are be
ginning to rebel against it on the
ground of the $300,000 the already over
borne taxpayer will have to pay to help
hold an element of business that must
sooner or later, pass from them, to the
natural and .neighboring port of Astoria.
They iflnd the new scale of taxes ar
ranged for them this year fearfully
exacting and are not disposed lo put up
with any phae of it that can be dis
pensed with upon any pretext whatever,
and as this Port of Columbia law ha
any number of disqualifying elements
about it, they intend to invoke the last
of them in ridding themselves of, at
least, that much extraordinary taxation.
We are of the opinion that when the
act issues from the courts to which It
will surely be taken to test its legality
and constitutionality, the trouble of the
taxpayer will be at an end, so far as
that item of imposition is concerned.
At the flrt sign of its being foisted on
the publie in any of its provisions, it
will be haled into court and subjected
to the sharpest overhauling ever under
taken and Uiere will be no let up as
long as there is plea, or a court, left
to invoke, against the rankest piece of
demagogy ever uttered in the Oregon
The congregationalittts must be proud
of the Rev. Mr. Clark. Any man who
expresses , such positive opinion on
one of the most important matters
the church had to deal with and
changes that opinion without argu
ment when he sees it isn't going to be
popular with his people is a dangerous
man to lead a flock. He is more likely
to preach that, which is popular than
that which is needful.
Every man believes that the women
of bis own country are the best and
most beautiful, and while we know that
American women surpass all otlmrs in
every particular we ought to feel as
hamed to compel our visitors to un
blushingly lie about it.
