THE EXTRA SESSION.
The proposition to call Congress in ex
tra session for the purpose of taking
remedial steps in the peculiar financial
conditions confronting the country, way
be the wisest possible more that can be
mad since the people are always amen
able to specific action by the Govern
ment when it is acting in their behalf,
which is not always the case, unhappily.
But we believe that anything that will
lend to mitigate uneasiness and afford
time for recovery will be urekome and
will serve to allay doubt and misap
prehension at borne and abroad; and
for that reason we shall hail the call
of the President for the immediate as
sembly of Congress as a saving expedi
ent. , ,' , ... -
One of, the features of the present
fipiyil disorder that contributes great
ly to the public patience and faith, Is
that the trouble is universal throughout
the country, and everywhere due to the
same initial causes. This indicates to
the people at large that no local weak
nesses are at the bottom of it, "which
conclusion is calculated to arouse in
terested inquiry and mimify the range
of individual concern. It is the nearness
of danger that emphasizes its personal
bearing, and that no local bank in Ore
gon k responsible primarily for the
current disturbances, adds a measure
of comfort and confidence to the views
of the average Oregonian that stands
him and his financial institutions in ex
cellent stead these days. And to this
quiet acceptance of the situation, the
convention of Congress in special session,
will add materially.
ASTORIA SQUARELY IN LINE.
We want it known all over the length
and breadth of the land that the City
of Astoria is squarely in line with the
spirit of popular f orebearance in the
matter of the pending financial problems.
' Our banks are in prime condition and
the people know it. The call for money
at the banks this week has been (as
was expected), a bit beyond normal,
but no enough so to create even a sus
picion of uneasiness. Many go to their
banks out of sheer curiousity, to ascer
tain just how they will be received and
to not what will be said by the officials.
The concensus of opinion on the street
is distinctly in favor of the policies
adopted by the financiers and the State
authorities and there is no doubt the
situation will be allowed to work itself
out to the orderly, If delayed, end.
This is just as it should be and shows
a conditition of public appreciation of
the exact status, as unusual as it is
commendable. - The absence of all ex
citement will do more to accelerate the
a condition of public appreciation of
else: and the people of this city are
evidently a unit in-so-far as their own
banks and accounts are concerned, and
uo not propose to figure in any precipi
tabs action that will react upon a situa
tion that is assuredly safe for the time
being. ' ''' ( .

REFUSES TO BE BUNCOED!
The "wild and wooly Westerner'' re
fuses to be buncoed by the slick "Pluto
crat of the East. . The intervention of
the "legal holiday" bas been peculiarly
appropriate and entirely advantageous
in the handling of what might have
been, else, a very ugly situation; and
the device is, so far as iwe can ascertain
essentially of the Padflc elope of the
Rockies. At all events, it has served a
splendid purpose and is yet to prevail
against the machinations of the preda
tory "gang" of Wall street.
Just now leaders of the great
movement designed to break down the
spirit and trend ot the administration
policy of public financing, are contend
ing mightily against the President's
notion'to convene Ongre in immediate
session, and if he needed anything to
make that resolution exact and opera
tive, without loss of time, this wild
eagerness of protest would furnish all
the excuse desired. We frankly admit
we do not like , the attituUe that hai
developed in that particular neighbor
hood on this question, and shall be alto
gether pleased to see it over-ridden
rough-shod, as it is likely to be if the
powers at Washington tumble to the
motive behind the opposition of Wall
street. t 1
The situation as it is understood at
the present moment is without, any
very grave eloments of danger and the
moment is propitious for the applica
tion of every concievable remedy. Feder
al, State and local; and to withold a
single speelfio may be the limit of folly.
The prompt and ready grasp of Con
gress upon the matter at this time will
lend immense firmness to the popular
sense of security, and this is what is
mors imperative than anything else.

Withstood Other Treatment But Quickly
Cured by Chamberlain's Cough '
"Last winter I caught a very severe
cold which lingered for weeks," says J.
Urquhart, of Zephyr, ..Ontario. "My
cough was very dry and harsh. The
local dealer recommended Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and guaranteed it, so I
gave it a trial. One small bottle of it
cured me. I believe Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy to be the best I have
ever used." This remedy is for sale by
Frank Hart and leading druggists.

Honey and Tar. It stops the cough,
