CLATSOP'S DUTY TO CAKE.
As a normally strong Republican
county, with a majority that permits
no escape from its patent and organic
duty, Clatsop must give H. M. Cake
a clear majority for United States
Senator, or stultify itself broadly, and
discreditably, to the Chamberlain in
terests. It has no middle ground of
home favoritism now; it must stand
by the man who has the only vestige
of Republican endorsement and au
thorized candadicy, for that dignity
before the party; or frankly confess
itself renegade to its partisan status
and program and go out of the busi
ness of posing.
In the present conditions of con
fusion and factional misdirection now
prevalent all over Oregon; with all
the splits and splinters of partisan
alignment asserting themselves and
defeating organic action, it were well
for a few of the strongest of the Re
publican counties to save the face of
the party in case re-organization
shall ever be attempted for the real
good of the State; and Clatsop, being,
proportionately, among the strongest,
her duty is plain, and the straightest
exemplification she can make of her
faith, in this premise, for this purpose,
is to stand behind the State's nomi
nee for the federal senatorship with
the major limit of her vote on Monda
next
efficacy than this same Astoria.
Get in!. Emulate it!. Take it over;
adopt it; pursue it; make it the cry
and creed of our business develop
ment!. Cut out the old. useless,
hoary, hap-hazard and heartless style
of doing things, and WAKE UF,
GENERALLY!.
ADOPT PORTLAND'S PLAN.
Astoria has arrived at a point where,
to save her future she must make
radical change in her policies of civic
ad commercial action. She has used
her time-worn, time-proven and time
defeated programs of waiting and
wailing and wasting, until their fall
acy is written large on ner commer
cial and industrial fronts. She must
throw a few commercial somersaults
and land on a new platform of com
munal endeavor and success; she
must pick up her idle commercial
lines and drive straight through, over,
under, around, all obstacles, no mat
ter who, or what they may be; she
must stick to the "middle of the road"
that leads to Astoria; she must
thrown down, and out, all the home
selfishness that has impeded her for
her longest years; she must waken
to the fact that she has no friend but
her own municipal and communal
self; that every public benefice with
in her reach must have HER string
on it, and she must pull stoutly and
unitedly, if she is going to land it
away from the other string-pullers;
she must realize that her splendid
natural advantages have been what
they are for thousands of years and
will remain as they are for a thou
sand more, unless she spends her
money and time and talent in prov
ing their value to the outsider and
giving him a share in them for what
he will do to exploit them, and cease,
demanding his last dollar for a "look
in" only to drive him to some more
sensible and public spirited com
munity to spend his investment hap
pily and successfully; she must for
sake the dilotory, dubious and dis
credited doctrine of dawdling along
and waiting for fate to chuck some
thing into her lap without even her
thanks for the gift; she must spend
her money at home, for the good it
will do here, and spend more of it
to save and bolster that home and to
magnify the home-city. In other
words, she must adopt the Portland
plan of working and living (and even
dying) for Portland 1.
Hot air, printer's ink, commercial
resolutions, industrial prospectuses
and all the ordinary expediments of
the day and place, are utterly worth
less without the spirit of unity, back
ed by the ready and persuasive dol
lar and deed-of-gift, that marks the
indelible genuineness of that spirit.
This is the crux of the "Portland
plan," and no city nor town in the
State has better reason to know its
NEW COUNTY COMINt.
A new county is to be born to the
old Oregon commonwealth on Mon
day next, if the will of the people of
Hood River" county and its par
ent, Wasco shall be carried out.
"Hood River" is to be the name of
the thirty-fourth organic parcel of the
State, and it is right that the people
of that particular and prosperous
country should have their own dis
tinct and separate alignment if they
want it; they have won it by sheer
hard work, the spending of their own
wealth, and making the world realize
that they have something peculiarly
and notably valueable; as is the way
with all live and successful communities.
We hope that they will win out hands
down, and that the future may bring
all the sequent and incidental bless
ings that innure by right of the pub
lic spirit, thrift and courage of the
people behind such a departure. Hood
River is the best type in all Oregon,
today, of real, effective, modern de
velopment, and her people should
have what they want for the purpose
of centralizing and accentuating he
advantages. .
If Canada selects all her citizens as
cautiously as her Immigration com
missioner is now doing in England,
the Dominion must some day be what
the natives often dream of the Utopia
of the Anglo-Saxon race. The Influx
of southern and eastern Europeans
and orientals is vigorously opposed,
and even the English themselves must
pass a strict examination as to their
desirability. The searchlight is turned
mercilessly upon all proposed importa
tions from the London slums.
In 1844 Edgar Allan Poe furnished a
New York paper with his renowned
"balloon hoax" invention, a tale of a
balloon which came from Europe and
landed near where recent experiments
with the aeroplane were conducted.
It may be that the first real aerial
transatlantic flight will start from the
very region where the fictitious one
was made to end sixty-four years ago.
Another latter day problem of the
air is how the mother birds can pre
rent their reckless youngsters from
lying In front of the aeroplanes.
Sometimes men ride two horses In
the political arena as well as In the
circus. But the political equestrian
takes the heavier risk.
The arbitration treaty with Japan
respects the dignity of the signatory
powers. But the little Jap's touchiest
point is his dignity.
A PROFIT, ANYHOW.
He was filling his first prescription,
and when he handed it to the lady he
told her it was a dollar and ten
cents.
She paid the dollar and ten, and
after she had gone he informed the
proprietor that the dollar was coun
terfeit. The proprietor looked over
his glasses at the young man and said:
"Well, how about the ten cents is
that good money?"
The young man answered in the af
firmative.
"Oh, well," the proprietor xeplied
thats not so Dad we still maKe a
nickel." Success Magazine.
