OVER A MILLION NOW!
We do not believe there are ten
men in the hundred in this city who
are aware of the stupendous fact
that the property wealth of this mu
nicipality is already chargable with,
practically, $8Q0,Q00 of public in
debtedness; and interest charges at
5 and 6 pefv cent; that there is im
perative necessity for increasing this
fearful load by over $325,000 during
the coming year to perfect and main
tain the publiv agencies already es
tablished here; and that Astoria
stands irrevocably, the sponsor for
it alL j . ...
No city in all this land, of her siae
and population, is burdened to any
such extent as this; and this . fact
alone is enough to refute the insult
offered this public in the open letter
of A. M. Smith in Tuesday's Budget,
that the "tnossbacks of Astoria are
responsible for her lack of develop
ment. Such a bill of costs as this
tells of no "mossbackism" in As
toria; bat rather proclaims her a
city willing to spend its money like
water for improvement, even to the
very" Yrf?e of shattering her public
credit . v. I
These figures are but approximate,
for the time being, and they will be
given with exactitude In the course
of a few days and in tabulated form,;
so there will be no chance for mis
understanding the gravest problem
that ever confronted this people. We
are not eager to publish these things
to the outside world, but the imme
diate safety of the city forces our
hand, and we do not usually hold
back when there is need for candor
and honest expression. , ,". .
The trouble has been that there
was not enough of popular interest
to inquire into this growing evil in
time to check the outrageous accu
mulaion. but, thank Heaven, there is
time . enough and votes enough, to
put the iron pressure of business re
trenchment at work, and it going to
ESTABLISH YOUR PORT!
The decision of the Supreme Court J
of Oregon confirming the validity of :
the Port of Portland bonds is the '
signal for Astoria to put herself in '
organic and positive shape as a port
under the law, as embodied in the i
terms of the Port of Astoria bill.
now before the people here. j
It must be done to fix her legal ;
status and give her a standing in
court for the civic prosecution of
any right that may be invaded here
tn the course of the operation of the
Portland bill. There can -be no
atronger demand made upon As
toria in this behalf than is presented

in the decision jut h.mded down and
her people must see to it that no
affirmative vote is lost on the 9th
Every man in this city knows the
expediency of such an establishment
here; the necessity for a port com
mission, a harbor master, for port
boundaries, and a legal supervision
of the marine, interests belonging
here; no man may argue successful
ly against the taking over of thi
indisputable right and there should
be a unanimous vote for the measure
when the time comes. i
It is merely a matter of setting up
the condition; there need be no
funds appropriated nor spent until
the exigencies shall demand it. It
is not a question of expending a dol
lar; it is simply assuming an advant
ageous position and hedging against
a dangerous invasion from outside
agencies that must be inimical to
any marine prestige claimed for this
port ;, . ' ' 'i' i i i i
We should be in a position to re
ceive, handle, dispose of, and aid,
our own commerce, and build a name
abroad for the safe, convenient and
logical control of one of the natural
departments of Astoria's i" commer
cial class and status. And we will
be, if the people shall unite for it
next month. '
COURTS NOT OPEN.
Let every man in this city remem
ber, when the honr comes for casting
his vote against the million-dollar
seawall bill, foisted on this com
munity by A. M. Smith and the coun
cil charter commission, that his
negative vote is justified on the
simple, and dangerous hypothesis
that the courts of the land are closed
to the people who pay for this wall,
but are wide open to the commission
that might be appointed to carry it
through. Every clause and provis
ion of the measure now under con
sideration, sets this fact up in un
equivocal terms, and the scheme is
to prevent interference by the peo
ple after the work shall have Started.
It is on a par with every other line
of action the present administration
has pursued in the arbitrary course
of piling up the public debt of this
city and the sooner it is understood
When the day comes for the
building of a seawall along the
waterfront of Astoria (as come it
will), it will be done upon an ascer
tained and understandable basis, as
to route, quality, cost, grades, dis
tricts, and all the facts precedent to
its construction, before the people
are committed to hundreds of thou
sands of dollars of bonds and assess
ments. Remember, you Astorians who
will have to pay for this thing, that
once you commit yourself to the
huge proposition, you have no re
course in law against the operations
of the men in charge of the work,
"fieart of O'yama
and that all promises made now as
to hat they will do -to conserve
your risht the njily prcmi-e, are
as pic-miM, to be broken, ah libitum,
when the time comes.
It probably will not snow until
the 9th of December. The political
forecast 'indicates a slide of unusual
proportions about that time.
A million-dollar blanket debt is
about all this lively little city can
contemplate with 'equanimity; the
second million may wait on the ad
iustmont of the Arst.
It is amusing to watch the calm de
liberation with which the man who
has disposed of all his realty in As
toria views the abnormal increase of
her public obligations, and devises
means for still further expanding the
It would be an admirable and
highly approved system if we could

Mr, Hollow-ay staid that if privileg

make every .member of the white

Korea and not leaving." said Mr.
Hollow-ay, "or I would talk.
"It would be one of the most
startling stories ever published if a
conuvctent newspaper man w;i sent
to Korea and the real condition of
Japanese oppression told to the
world. It would make' every white
man revolt and turn against the
Japanese. I wish I could talk, but I
