A WORD IN SEASON.
Astoria has never possessed so as
sured a future as is here just now.
f Within reason, she has everything to
look forward to, that will make her an
important commercial cat and seaport,
if the agencies contributing thereto are
conserved and shrewdly adjusted, rather
than dissipated in boom-and-buncombe
policies that shall rob her of the sta-
bility and wisdom needed to perpetuate
the sources of her up-lift.
Extravagant land values, and fictitious
prices of all torts, should be carefully
excluded from her markets; and all she
lias to offer must be held at figures that
attract, rather than repel, the man and
money from abroad. All advances in
realty should be closely governed by the
scope of development and the ratio of
investment. The increase in values of
lands, houses, businesses, stocks and
practical opportunities of every kind, is
expected and will be looked for both by
the local owner and tne stranger, -ana n
is up to us to make this increase so ra
tional, proportionate and gradual, as to
convince the seeker after , profitable
things, that we have not absorbed all the
profit in them before we shall tender
them to mm.
It was to the end that our people
might get together on this sane proposi
,tion, that we advocated the calling of a
mass meeting of Astorians to discuss
means and measures, the other day; and
we still adhere to the utility of such a
gathering. It is an easy matter to lose
one's head and wit under what are
known as "boom" tactics, and their re
suits, in a monetary way, are fractional
and discouraging, compared with the ae
cess innurmg from a common sense
policy "of keeping equable pace with the
. real expansion as it occurs, day by day,
and month. It is well, also, to avoid
the necessity of having to argue down
the doubts that are sure to be thrust
upon us if we stand pat (what a friend
at our elbow calls) "sentimental values";
the margin of value is fixed, the world
over, by the earning capacity of land and
improvements, and no other standard
will operate, in Astoria, nor anywhere
The responsibility of making the most
of our splendid field lies with us; not
with the people who shall come in here
.searching for actual benefits; we will
make or mar the best prospect time and
circumstance has ever awarded us just as
we shall gauge our prices and quote
.them. And it must be remembered, also,
that we are not right in the midst of the
buying world, but must draw our new
people to us from out the beaten paths
of speculation by virtue of the essential
excellence of our own program and the
whoksomeness of our offerings; this
will be a brand-new market for the in
vesting contingent, and it is up to us to
make them realize that what we are
' marketing is genuine as to value and the
increment insperable from that value.
More cities than one have been ruined
by , "boom" absurdities and we do not
have to sacrifice anything to that doc
trine. , . . .
I v V
: .' A MYRIAD UTOPIAS.
Every human soul has its own Utopia;
intellect, circumstance, condition, en
vironment,' and a thousand other ele
ments of individual existance, beget the
scope and beauty of it.
The abjectly poor builds his out of
the images wrought of wealth; the in
valid finds his in the longings for health
and strength; ; the crippled, the blind,
the free man( the prisoner, the ambi
tious, the plodding, all have their high
and ultimate desires, and the everlasting
dream goes on, unremittingly, with its
endless fight for the : unattainable. The
fever spreads at times to groups, to con
courses, to nations, and few there are
who think of resistance.
It is one of the saving graces of life,
this consciousness, of, and search for,
the ideal. It makes the paths of life
smoother, and soften the ills that are,
by sheer reflected sweetness. The very
children possess the faculty of casting
ahead for the charming dignities of man
and womanhood as their , simple little
hearts depict them; and if the babes
may revel in awh field, surely the
sanguine adult may grasp for the in
tangible comforts he finds in his own
chosen realm of fancy.
" It is only when the eager soul seeks
to bend the rigid actualities of today to
the dreamed -of blessednesses of tomor
row, that his cup of defeat and disap
pointment overflows with abundant bit
terness, and he lapses to a level alto
TO INSTALL 'PHONE WIRELESS'
RUSSIAN VERSUS JEW.
One of the ugly and invariable phases
of Russian news is the constant and
horrible baiting of the Jews there. Rus
sia claims to be civilized; but she is
wofully in arrears on that score, if one
half the tales of this sort that come
from there, are true. But what creates
the marvel for most men, is, that the
country should contain a single man or
woman of the race, after all these awful
vears. Why do they stay there? Why
do they not leave and come to America?
Other peoples have taken this route from
the ills and losses thrust upon them in
the land of their nativity. We have
much to contend with, but nothinsr of
this kind; as yet, atieast The American
Hebrew must be a very different man,
and of infinitely better stock and qual
ty, than his Russian brother, if the
latter puts up with this dreadful curse
of domination, simply for the sake of
money-lust and the holding of some com
mercial leverage in that empire of un-happiness..
Naval Officer Will Equip the Virginia
and Connecticut With New System.
WASHINGTON, CkZ 14 Lieutenant
Commander Cleland Davis of the navy
has gone to Korfork to install wireless
telephone instruments on the battle
ships Virginia and Connecticut. It is
the intention of the Navy Department to
put wireless telephones on all the ves
sels of the Atlantic fleet.
The instrument to be tested on the
Virginia and Connecticut is the invention
of a Danish engiueer. It was the first
put on the market. A feature of the
wireless telephone is that it works with
a much lower voltage than the wireless
telegraph. It is claimed for the instru
ments to be tested that the telephone
can be worked with a Morse key like
the regular wireless telegraph instrument
The wireless telephone has been oper
ated successfully for a 'distance of efyht
miles. Communication for five miles is
comparatively easy. It can be utilised
to -great advantage by the commanding
officer of a fleet to call up the captains
of the various ships and converse with
them without leaving his cabin.
BODY OF JONES NOT FOUND.
The president finds the inland folks
ready to agree that the salt water needs
also shall receive attention.
At the present rate of progress the
American oration will soon be a lap
ahead of the English drumbeat in circl
ing the world.
The whistling of steamboats up and
down the great Father of Waters is the
right sort of a keynote, politically and
, Young Teddy Roosevelt's connection
with the Harvard football team of 1907
will tend to prove what hereitary in
fluence can do on tihe gridiron.
Vancouver talks of sending the Asiatic
immigrants to Ottawa, and the Can
adian capital might forward them to
Downing street, London. An exhibit on
the spot is often a convincing argument.
A waterway seven feet deep will short
ly be opened from Hennepin on the Hli
noise River to Rock Island on the Mis

States Government at a cost of $7,500-

A Louisiana swamp drainage conven
tion will be held in New Orleans this
week. The spirit of improvement has
mounted the water wagon and the Mis
sissippi Valley will proceed to raise more
corn and cotton as well as carry them
more freely and cheaper to the markets.

PARIS. Oct. 14. A rumor which for
a long time has passed from mouth to
mouth regarding the exhumation of the
supposed body of John Paul Jones was
given publicity todity In tit Crldu Paris,
which says that the truth is beginning to
filter through. Thes Crldu Paris say
that the protended dUcovery was only
an invention published during the ex
cavations. The truth is that five coffins
were dug up. Four of them bore plates
Identifying their contents, but the fifth
was blank. The paper ridicules the
measurements of the anthropologist,
which it says were compared only with
a portrait of the admiral and their path
ological observations. The mention of
fftaul Jones to the members of the com
mittee of the Vieux Paris who follow.!
the excavations caused them to burst
into laughter, v. v i ,
Out of Sight.
"Out of sight, out of mind," is an old
saying which applies with speoial force
to a sore, burn or wound that's been
treated with Bucklen's Arnica Salve.
It's out of sight, out of mind and out of
existence. Piles too and chilblains dis
appear under its healing Influence. Guar
