"WEDNESDAY - DECEMBER 28, 1889
I " Suddenly it has come upon the
older nations that American invasion
is not confined to armed legions and
invincible sea fighters. Hie ... old
-world is complaining ot the invasion
of the army ot American commercial
men. Apparently the discovery is a
recent one, but in reality the inva
sion began lon ago. It began when
the steam engine was perfected, when
the cottin gin made possible the pro
duction of unlimited quantities of
cheap cloths, when the mechanical
crenius of ihe versatile Yankee was
given full swing.
The advance of America in me
chanical arts has been as resistless as
the march of the lesions of Alexan
der. By the arts of war he made his
nation the foremost of the world. By
skill in the arts of peace the new con
tinent, the great republic of modern
history is taking her rightful place in
the world's marts. It is due first to
the wonderful opportunities given
men of an inventive turn of mind
Every inducement is offered for ap
pliances which will lessen the cost of
labor. Time saving is also a great
desideratum in this bustling nation
of ours. Where other nations expend
weeks in the perfection of manufac
tured products it has been the aim of
American. producers to turn a, lever
and take from one end in a few hours
the perfected article which was raw
material at the other end of the ma
Another matter which aids tne
more constant use of machinery is the
approbation of the laboring classes,
which in Ametica have learned that
mechanical appliances are not the
foes of the workingman. In the older
countries the introduction of a de
vice which , , temporarily deprives a
considerable number of men and
women of their accustomed employ
ment is looked upon as a curse. It
is within the meraery of children that
such introduction has lid to riots
even in this .country, but it is gradual
ly becoming apparent that machines
which may be operated with few
workmen make less probable the
danger of competition from foreign
manufactures, who are compelled to
figure in vast pay rolls. This is a
nation of skilled mechanics, artists in
their particular lines, who conceive
new patterns, intuitively calculate to
the pound the strain which iron and
steel will be asked to bear and em
ploy a minimum of metal to supply
the strength. New methods are used
in the packing houses, latest designs
are followed in the textiles, the best
of materials are put into steel rai.'s,
until the old world has been com
pelled to recognize that an . article
stamped with tho characters. "U. S.
A." is the best and in the long run
America is invading " the trade of
Europe because of superiority in
material and methods, and can not be
driven from the field so long as her
workmen employ their inherited and
acquired intelligence in turning oat
the manufactured article from su
perior raw material. Spokesman Review.
the Snake and Columbia rivers into
her lap in endless profusion. Astoria
has been indolent on the open river
question for Io, these many years,
while all the time pretending that
she possessed advantages as a com
mercial center. The only salvation
for Astoria is an open river and it is
to be hoped that the people of that
town have at last awftkeced to it and
resolved to cease chasing chimeras
and delusions, and lend their efforts
to accomplishing something that will
hot only benefit Astoria but the peo
pie of three great states. We only
succeed when we accomplish some
thing for others as well as for our
selves. No .community of people
can hope to make themselves prosper
ous and progressive unless their pro
jects hold out inducements and cover
the welfare of others as well as that
of themselves -E. O.
Now that Astoria's chamber.of com
merce and Progressive Commercial
Association have formerly resolved
for an open Columbia river the peo
ple of Astoria should unite their ef
forts and work for an open river
without cessation until the products
of the great Inland Empire flow down

ported four pairs of the Indian mon
goose for -the purpose of destroying
the "cane-piece rat." Ten years later,
says Nature, it was estimated that the
saving: to the colony through the -work
of this animal amounted to 100,000 an
nually. Their came a sudden change in
the aspect, of affairs. It was found that
the mongoose destroyed all ground
nesting birds, and that the poultry, as
well as the irrsectiverous reptiles and
batrachians of the island, -were being
exterminated by it. Injurious insects
increased in consequence a thousand
fold; the temporary benefits of the in--troduction
were speedily wiped away,
and the mongoose became a pest. .
. Domestic animals, including young
pigs, kids, lambsr newly-dropped calves,
puppies and kittens, were destroyed by
it, while it also ate ripe bananas, pine
apples, young corn, avocado pears,
sweet potatoes,, cocoas, yams, peas,
sugar cane, meat and salt provisions
and fish. Xow we are told nature -has
made another effort to restore the bal
ance. With the increase of insects due
to the destruction by the mongoose of
their destroyers has come an increase
