Mr. Bryan can do no better than
Rooseveltian era, if he really hopes
toinaugiirate a "Bryanic" period, and
we cannot forfend the fear that even
with the most ardent alignment of
this sort, he is destined to meet a
period of another kind; the kind that
will forever fix the said "Bryanic"
period at a date co-incidental with
the day of election in November next.

Among the large and interesting
possibilities in line for Astoria, is the
full establishment on ; the Clatsop
coast of a splendid Chatauqua audi
torium and athletic field, along with
all the addenda that goes with this
admirable socio-religfous fraternity.
The. investment is to be of such scope
as to warrant the Kveh'est anticipa
tion on the part of all Clatsopians, in
both the practical and the ethical
avenues of expression and advantage,
and should inspire the widest and
heartiest encouragement that can be
given it here.
There can be no doubt of the entire
good will of city and county in this
valuable premise, and every thing
will be done to contribute to the open
ing of the enterprise at an early date
in the season of 1909. To fail, to
neglect or disparage in the slightest,
so great and good a thing as this
will mark us eternally as a commun
ity unfit and undeserving.
, ALA ROOSEVELT.
Mr. Bryan ,a la Theadore Roose
velt, is out with an, announcement,
that if he shall be elected to the
Presidency in November, he will
never seek re-election to the great
office again. This is exactly what
might have been expected from the
Democratic candidate; it is his first
act in assimilating the methods and
policies of the present executive, and
before he is done with his course in
the campaign it will be observed
and noted, that he is hewing relig
iously to the Rosevelt line; it will
pay him immensely to do it. Tie can
have no better nor safer criterion,
and he knows it,
The man who cannot match Roose
velt as man and president, will ap
peal in vain to the American people.
Therefore, we are not surprised to see
the great Nebraskan emulating him
thus early in the game. It is fully
expected of Mr. Taft, for to him'
The mere sufferance to which the
vice presidency has dropped in these
days, has made it a fearsome thing to
most good and able men, who see in
it the travesty of office-holding in the
concrete, and nothing else, and refuse
to allow themselves to go up for sac
rifice. It is time the close associate
of the Chief Executive of the Nation,
the second man in the land, was made
something of besides a political sop,
and a poor figurehead, a hollow
sham, and a subject for ribald car
toon and jest; the office should be in
vested with dignities . that line-up
sharply with the prestige of the
greater post and save our good and
reputable men from the reproach in
separable from its present emptiness
and barren import, even if the na
tional constitution has to be amend
ed in the doing of it.
