It is very difficult, at times, to be
as patient as we need to be, in a civic
sense, because of our inability to
fathom the ends and purposes of
those to whom we look for the things
that shall lift us to the plane of com
mercial progress and importance.
Astoria is not alone in this attitude
of baffled hope and retarded enter
prise; hundreds of other communities
bear the same measure of disappoint
ment and apparent defeat, and yet the
crisis comes to every place that has
distinct and plausible claim upon the
play of commerce and business de
velopment, and sooner, or later, the
day of release and success dawns,
and always unexpectedly.
From the moment it became a pub
lie fact that Astoria & Columbia Riv
er Railroad had passed into the
hands of the Hill interests, a new
sense of opportunity and promise has
possessed every thinking man in th
community; and that we have not
realized anything of. pronounced and
staple value to date, does not elimi
nate the ultimate and exact sum of
local benefit that is to accrue to us
when the hidden objective of that
purchase is attained and manifested
We. are 'jne victims ot our own
arent and fallible guesses half the
time, and we grow censorious of the
blundering we do along these lines.
We cannot do Mr. Hill's planning, so
we indulge our own license in for
mulating noi ons of what he ought to
do. and resent his failure to follow
our bent. Impatience of these home-
wrought disappointments is unseemly.
For what we can fathom from the
superficial viewpoint, the Hill people
are centering all their energies to
closing the gap betwen Pasco and
Spokane, on the "North Bank" road.
This is the cardinal thing with them
just now; all other points and mat
ters are held in subservience. Once
this is accomplished James J. Hill,
president and owner of the Great
Northern is master of an independ
ent line, direct from Milwaukee to
Astoria and the sea.
It is said this gap will be closed by
the first of the year, or by March
not. Then perhaps we shall begin
to realize that we are not quite out
of the running; that the brain that
has devised this independent system
of overland transportation has other
potent plans for the terminals of such
a line; that he has done other think
in gtaht we know of and that As
toria has figured larger than even we
hoped: that he has hedged against
defe.it and change ahd mischance and
made himself secure and invulnerable
in the ever-shifting manipulation of
railway control and direction. We
have rational ground for rational
hope yet, and it may be well to exer
cise our patience for all it is worth,
for another year or more, since the
great game of transportations is not
played in the open and frequently
holds a sumberged card that once led
puts a new and wonderful face on
things in general and our own inter
ests in particular.
the White House in order to get his
colleagues in line and cinch their ac
ceptance of the various portfolios?.
One is appalled at the thought of con
ditions that will exist at the famous
old home in such a case; of the con
gestion that will ensue; of the inter
minable questions of right and pre
cedence, official and social; of the
bickering and dickering of the women
folk, the rows and rumpuses of the
kids; the confusion and over-lapping
of business and society; the inextri
cable uproar among the servants, and
the utter demolition of the quiet and
perfect methods that have been
built up there for the past hundred
years or more. If ever Mr. Bryan
reaches the White House he will find
a line of adamantine traditions in
force there that even his abnormally
democratic soul will have to subscribe
to. He cannot run a national board
ing house at Washington and the
presidency at the same time. i

FIVE HUNDRED VOICES.
The Astoria Kegatta for 1908 will
be the best ever.
Not only are the marine sports to
be amplified by some of the leading
events and people engaged in making
world's records in their particular
lines, but many new and novel attrac
tions, afloat and ashore, are to be
introduced, and the whole program
expanded to a point never before
known in regatta history.
The superb success of the Scandi
navian Sangerfest of last year is to
be repeated and exceeded. All of the
societies constituting this splendid in
stitution have entered the lists and
their five hundred voices will be heard
in some of the most magnificent
work they have yet done in this
country; all the best of the soloists
and instrumentalists of the Northwest
are being negotiated for, and Dr.
Emil Enna has been chosen to lead
the whole affair. With such assur
ances of success at hand, every As
torian should work hard and late and
unceasingly for the Regatta, and
make it, once for all, the prime
scheme of entertainment and public
interest of the year.
The Astoria Regatta is becoming an
acknowledged fixture among the an
nual events of the North Pacific
country, and this year's contribution
to its history will fasten it perma
ently and ineffaceably in the pleasant
hronicles, where it be!ongs.

Brer' Bryan and Brer' Kern have
already divided the the White House.
Brer' Kern, lie couldn't afford to run
for the vice-presidency and was
dubious of supporting the honor if
it did happen to fall to him on the
score of his income, so Brer' Bryan
placates him, and promises to whack
up the national home in the pleasant
event they are elected; all of which
strikes us as being a bit premature
and far-fetched. Suppose the "great

has completed all arrangements for
the entertainment of the ' Atlantic
battleship fleet and awaits the coming
of the fighting ships with the great
est interest and most pleasing antici
pations. The entire community, re
gardlcss of race or nationality has
heartily united to extend a cordial
welcome to officers and men and pro
vide them with entertainment. All
other interests are viewed as subsid-
ary to this great occasion and the
entire week has been givn up to clab

By universal consent July 16, the
day on which the fleet is scheduled to
arrive will be made a complete holi
day and all business will be suspended
Thousands of persons from all parts
of the territory will assemble on
Diamond Head and along the other
heights and points of vantage south
east of Honolulu to witness the
spectacle of the approaching men of
The fleet will proceed past the leper
settlement on the island of Molokai
to sec the ships as they steam slowly
by. Soon after Molikai has been
dropped astern, the warships should
come in sight of the crowds on Dia
mond Head, providing the weather is
clear, and from then on for the last
twenty miles of its long journey from
the homeland, the whole fleet will be
visible to the cheering multitudes lin-1
ng the heights.
From early morning on the day of
the coming of the big ships, the
crowds will be scrambling up the
bluffs straining their eyes across the
blue water to the southeast to catch
the first glimpse of the smoke cloud
that tells of the approach of the fleet
still hull down over the horizon. With
the appearance of the fleet itself
Honolulu will loose its enthusiasm in
a magnificent bombardment and day
light fireworks which has been spec
ially prepared by the Japanese resi
dents at great expense.
Daylight fireworks will also play
a large part in the Jcstivitics when
the fleet departs and from the time
of its coming to the day it leaves for
Australia, Honolulu will be decorated
with bunting and lights as never be
fore in its history. Throughout the
entire stay of the fleet the business
portion of the city will be blazing
with electric lights every night on a
scale never before attempted here.
The entertainment committee has
scheduled numberless excursions to
all places of interest and the men of
the fleet will be overwhelmed with op
portunities to see the island during
their stay. There will be trips to
Pearl Harbor and to the sugar planta
tions and pine apple regions of Mua
iniand Pali and to all other points of
scenic and other interest.
