ASTORIA, OREGON:
WEDNESDAY.
... JIAKCH J, 1S85
A DEMOCRATIC ADMINISTRATION.
Ox tbo 4th of Ztfarcli, 18G1, llio Re
publican party assumed administra
tive control of the Union; the first
four years of its existenco -were con
sumed in a civil war; the twenty suc
ceeding years have been years of
peace, of plenty, of material progress.
To-day the Democratic party as
sumes administrative control of the
affairs of the country. In any other
country than ours such acquisition
of power would bo a tremendous
event, an occasion of momentous im
portance, in which national life was
imperiled; with us it will be simply
a notable event; something to bo
noticed in the newspapers and talked
of as any other item of news. It is
on such occasions that the grand
simplicity of our form of government
is isost apparent. A company of
well dresed gentlemen will appear
at noon on the portico of tho "White
house, and to tho president-elect the
chief justice will administer the oath
of office, whereupon tho new presi
dent will occupy about fifteen min
utes in reading his inaugural and
that is all. The great complex busi
ness interests of 50,000,000 people will
go on just tho oame and in writing of
the president tho name of Cleveland
will be written instead of Arthur.
As a plain, matter-of-fact business
proposition it may bo said that the
new president has not been "called,"
or "raised up"' to sigualize or specify
any historical emergency or political
era. There is no great crusade to be
led; lucre is no demand for protec
lion against danger; there is no great
issue awaiting settlement or solution.
And it is just us well that this is the
case.
Of Mr. Cleveland it mav be said
that there is nothing to bhow that ho
had ever dreamed of being president
up tho lime when he was nominated
for the office. Ke docs not pride him
self upon his ability, and does not, in
fact, accept ths idea that ability ib a
point of any particular consequence
in politics. 'It was my luck that
made mo sheriff," he said at a critical
period o! tho recent campaign, "my
luck that made mo governor, and it
will be just my luck to be made presi
dent" This is as high a view as he
has ever been known to tako of him
self, or of the conditions that should
f properly attend success. His philos
ophy in this relation, as far as he has
ever expressed it, is simply that of a
man who expects the cards to 'run"
in a certain way, and who relies upon
fortune to give him tho stakes. One
searches his biography in vain for any
sign of coming potency or any hint of
discipline for great future responsi
bilities. He has never been a stu
dent; his experience in public life has
been of a limited and routine charac
ter only; and he has no acquaintance
even with tho leading pnblic men of
the time. The soher truth is that in
all our history no man has ever bo
fore been chosen president with so
little to recommend him.
Instead of coming to the front as
a national ruler at a period when
there is a necessity for a man of su
perior force, -it is his "luck" to at
tain such a position at a time when,
happily, there is little for him to do
and little call for extraordinary tal
ent and energy. The fact is at once
both his advantage and the consola
tion of the country. If any gravo
danger threatened us, or any unusual
and profound issues were awaiting
solution, there would be a general
feeling that tho accession of such a
man to tho presidency could result
only in confusion and disaster. But
as it is, he has but to let well cnou gh
alone, and, unless somo unforseen
and serious test shall intervene, he
need have no trouble about getting
through safely and acceptably; and
the people arc willing to believe of
him that his intentions are good, and
that his very want of shining quali
ties will lead him to be cautious and
conservative. That is tho fact in the
case. Nobody has any wish to dis
parage him. or to embarrass him.
He is to be tho president of the whole
country, and the whole country is
desirous, on its own account, that uis
administration shall be a success,
without regard to partisan differences
and prejudices; but tho hope that it
will so result is based not upon tho
theory that his duties are to bo im
portant and his opportunities large
and splendid, but upon the conviction
that where there is really nothingbut
ordinary work to do an ordinary man
need not fail to do it satisfactorily.
"Wines Lloyd's register was estab
Jished in its present form, fifty years
ago, the largest vessel on its books
was the George IV, of 1,318 tons bur
den. Now there are 195 vessels of
over 3,000 tons, one of them, the City
of Home, being more than six times
&s large as the George IV.
A rut,! statement of what has been
done by tho Panama Canal Company
is given in an eastern oxchange. Tho
most conspicuous fact is the disparity
between tho outlay required to com
plete the canal and the money in tho
hands of the company. It is within
bounds to estimate "that 700,000,000
trancs are necessary in addition to
tho 730,000,000 already secured, in or
der to complete tho excavation .and
pay tho current interest charges. Tho
conclusion is that at the present rate
okconstruction it will be impossible
fo finish tho canal for years beyond
tho time fixed for its completion. Tho
problem of providing against the
freshets of the Chagrea river is ono
of the most difficult with which tho
company has to deal. Tho present
plan is to construct an immense dam
costing 100,000,000 francs. Tho
chances seem very much against tho
completion of tho canal in the life
time of Do Lesseps.
m
The bill before congress to amend
the Dingley shipping act amends the
tenth section and makes it possible
for an improvident sailor to ask an al
lotment noto with his creditors. In
all leading ports of the Unitod States
if a sailor applies at a boarding-house
for food and shelter, ho will not bo re
ceived if this bill is not passed, mak
ing arrangements by which he can
liquidate his indebtedness, but in fu
ture can obtain what ho desires by
giving the boarding-house keeper his
note of allotment, which is an agree
ment to pay after a certain amount of
wages is earned, and he is limited in
the amount to one month's pay for
board and clothing. Tho bill passed
the house.
The following is a description of
one Utah town, but will apply to many
Of them: "Everything is Mormon.
Tho biggest shop is tho co-operative
store; the biggest place of worship
tho tabernaole; the biggest man the
president of the stake. Everybody
that meets 'brothers,' or 'sisters' each
other in the streets, and after night
fall tho only man abroad is tho police
force, who, as a rule, retires very early
himself, as his neighbors complain
that his pacing the sidewalks disturbs
their rest. Even the dogs are too
well regulated to go about howling
at moons."
As Arizona editor having got his
rival in jail for assault and battery
thus gloats over him: "Our quondam
contemporary is lying as usual this
time in jail. "We understand that
the saloon keepers are moving heaven
and earth to get him out, as their
business has fallen off considerable
since ho has been cooped. "When he
gets out what a thirst ho will have."
