AID FROM THE HUB.
It ia with, an overwhelming sense
of obligation that we acknowledge
the receipt, by last evening's mail, of
a lengthy editorial article, in manu
script, from the facile pen of the
editor of the Boston Courier, design
ing to sway public opinion regarding
woman suffrage. Accompanying the
article is a letter wherein he informs
.iys, in courteous phrase, that he
doubts not our ability to realize how
important he "considers the need, of
beating woman suffrage to be, when
he, the mighty one, the editor of the
Courier , can take the time to write to
us away but herein Astoria, an article
for us to publish. Thanks, brother
Courier man, thanks! The attention
is appreciated. The manuscript is
most gratefully received. It is not
for us to insinuate that there is a pos
sibility of our being ablo to form an
opinion regarding woman suffrage,
-without the aid of our moulder of
public opinion in the Hub. In our
raw, unculturedjWestorn way, it would
ill becomes us to do otherwise than
most humbly vouchsafe thanks to the
brilliant Boston man for his morceaux
concerning the subject that so lately
agitated our voters in Oregon and
Clatsop county. But, rude though it
may appear, we venture to suggest to
our friend, who seizes spare moments
from a day of busy toil to indite in
spiration for us, that we have a mid
dling tight grip on a few ideas our
self in relation to this matter, and
until such time as they are disproved
by logic or vindicated by events, we
do not stand in pressing need of out
side as3istance. It is, however, a
consolation to us to know that in far
off Boston there sits in the Courier
office an intellectual giant who, in
moments caught from care, can fur
nish us with the fertilo coinage of
his brain, and thus, through our
humblo assistance, sway the minds of
men in fields afar from Beacon hill.
But this is not all; nor is the full
measure of his magnanimity yet re
lated. Further on he says that he
puts all this at our service "gratis,"
"what I should find no difficulty in
putting into hard cash nearer home."
Now, we submit that this is too
much! Misguided man! "Why did
he not consult wise interest and put
this overflow of ganglia into "hard
cash" "nearer home." "Why send it
to us by the sundown seas, where the
thunder of the surf upon our Clat
sop coast is echoed only by the wan
dering cry of the lone sea gull, and
tfcja pensive claui shrinks retiringly
from the ardent pursuit of the excur
sionist! We are used to kindly deeds
at the hands of admiring friends, but
this from a Bostonian is as an oasis in
the desert or the shadow of a rock in
If there was any one thing more
than another that was wearing away
our young life it was a desire for edi
torials on the woman suffrage ques
tion, and the carking care that had
tended to blight our existence is now
removed. "For this relief much
Befohm in the matter of apparel
is needed in our stale legislature.
The costume of the members of the
Mexican legislature consists of full
dress suits of black, with white tie3
and light kid gloves. As America
takes the lead in almost everything,
the representatives of the "Webfoot
state sliould not allow themselves to
be outdone by foreigners. The men
who make our state laws should be
attired in a costume representing the
chief product of the sections they
represent. For instance, the Honor
able gentleman from eastern Oregon
should wear a wool sack coat; the
member from Marion a floured vest;
the legislator from Multnomah coun
ty a suit of watered silk; the member
from Clatsop a salmon-colored suit,
and those from various rural districts
should appear in oorn-colored gar-
ments. Harmony in clothing as well
as in politics is a desideratum devout
ly to be wished.
An enterprising New Yorker has
invented a substitute for ice cream.
The ingredients for his compound
have not yet been learned, but there
is comfort in his assurance that it can
bo consumed with reckless disregard
to -quantity. It is cooling without
being "filling," and can be devoured
without cessation for hours. The
price is about the same as that asked
for the genuine article, and as a re
ward of S5 is promised to any one
who can prove that his indulgence in
the new luxury has superinduced
colic, overheated speculators can
combine business with pleasure. The
inventor may think he has a "sure
.thing," but the prospect of winning
$5 in return for the slight inconveni
ence of contracting a cramp will, no
doubt, attraot a great many well dis
posed people who are always eager to
engage in games of chance.
The great campaign is opened and
politic.il bunnors arc nwnng to the
breeze. Thorofore it U hicrhlv im
portant thai both parties should liaTe
appropriato mottoes. As pith and
point are dosirable, we would recom
mend the Chineso language as the
best from which to make a selection.
The celestial cognomen "Hop Li
signifies harmony and profit This
motto might be used by both Re
publicans and Democrats so that one
could taunt the other with flaunting
a "jumping falsehood" in the faae of
the public. If General Butler catches
another nomination, making three in
all, his motto should be uSam Hop,"
which means three-fold union. Yan
Li" could be adopted by the winning
party, as it indicates profit a thou
sand-fold Those who are familiar
with the tea box language may find
many, other mottoes more or lew ap
propriate to the exigencies of the
-., m - .
With Blaine the Republicans can
afford to lose New York and still car
ry the country. He will lose no New
England state that any other Repub
lican could get He is stronger in
New Jersey than any other named
I man. He is as strong in Ohio and
stronger in Indiana than Sherman.
And lie may raise an enthusiasm that
would secure him the votes of Vir
ginia and North Carolina, if not also
of West Virginia. In the congres
sional elections in Virginia (1882) the
Democrats fell 10,000 votes short of
the opposition. In the local elections
of 1883 they had a majority, but that
was secured by means which dare not
be repeated in a, presidential election.
In North Carolina there is a Demo
cratic majority of four -hundred and
odd; and in West Virginia, in 1882,
the popular vote was: Democratic,
46,631; Republican, 43,440.

The steamship Great Eastern has
been chartered by an enterprising
New Orleans man to be need as a
hotel next fall at the New Orleans
exhibition. Suoh a practicable and
sensible idea should at once be seized
by the government and applied to the
navy. Men-of-war that might sink
during a heavy gale at sea would be
perfectly safo riding at anchor in the
harbors of our fashionable seaside
resorts. They could also be used to
intimidate rapacious landlords into
subjection. Aside from the accommo
dations these floating hostelries might
afford a grateful public, the revenue
derived from them would soon be
sufficient to pay off the national debt
and so increase the wealth of the
country that the government would
be enabled to purchase all the navies
in the world.
