Tin: mayor of Portland has
called a public meeting in that
city this afternoon. He alleges it
to be necessary, lie says: "The
city is full of men without any
visible means of support, who have
been driven from towns on the
Sound and attracted here evident
ly for the purpose of riot when the
time comes for the exodus of the
If this is so it is certainly time
for the good people of Portland to
take necessary steps to insure qui
et and order in their city. No
community can thrive in which
turbulence and lawlessness gain
the ascendanc It is a matter
that directly affects everyone in
that community; employer and
employe, capitalist, merchant,
wage worker and ever' resident
of the city honestly employed or
with honest intent is alike inter
ested in seeing that the peace of
the city is maintaind. And not
only in that community but
throughout the commonwealth the
same interest exists directly and
indirectly. What affects one af
fects all If Portland suffer it has
its reflex action on. Asteria: pros
perity in one community is reflect
ed upon its neighbors.
For this rejson the action of the
mayor of .Portland, if his allegation
be true, is cemmendable: for this
reason we hope that the conserva
tive sensible element in our sister
city will see that no oveit act
stain the fair fame of the chief city
of the stale; for this reason wo
hope that a prosperous season
awaits the metropolis; that the
law-abiding home-making people
of that city will have the sense and
courage to see what is best and to
stand by it.
It is to be regiettcd that the ar
rogant rant of the Orcyonlan on
the one hand and the criminal de
sire to violate the law on the other,
have stirred up so much bad blood
and made it seemingly necessary
for Portland's citizens to meet and
adopt measures of repression, but
now that it "appears necessary the
action must meet with commenda
tion and approval from all well
meaning ciU7e:ss, wherever they
may be resident.
But recently the Qregonian un
dertook to lecture us for alleged
inability to discern. Probably
had it, in homely phrase, minded
its own business it would have
been better for the community
that is compelled to endure that
We were skating over very thin
ice down here, and are not alto
gether serene yet, but there is suf
ficient sense and justice in Asto
ria for this community to deal ef
fectively with present and pressing
In favorable contrast to the dis
quiet and uneasiness that evident
ly pervades Portland is the cheery
bustle and business aspect of this
city. We look for a prosperous
season down here. In every can
nery a busy crowd of men ::re put
ting things in shape, mechanics are
laying out their spring work, plans
are being drafted for new resi
dences, large quantities of supplies
have been bought and paid for
and all signs give promise of a
fairly prosperous season. All who
want work can find it, and the
busy man has no time to put up
mean jobs or plan bad deeds. Our
little troubles down here were
mostly settled sometime ago, and
we sincerely wish our Portland
friends as happy and satisfactory
a termination of their difficulties,
and shall. gladly record it when it
Societies are being organized
with incredible rajrdity in the

THAT EDUCATIONAL BILL.
The house committee have re
ported adversely on the bill just
passed by the senate appropriat
ing $77,000,000 among the states
and territories for educational pur
poses. In this they seem to have
exhibited more common sense than
the upper house did in passing the
The bill is. killed and deserved
its fate. It simply fined the pro
gressive states for being progress
ive, and awarded premiums to the
sluggish commonwealths for being
inert. The states that are fore
most in the cause of education
would have been punished and
the states that are backward would
have been rewarded. Had the bill
passed, Oregon would have got
$35,000; Mississippi, $,500,000;
the great state of New York would
have had $2,025,000; while Geor
gia would have $0,240,000; Cali
fornia would have $604,000, and
North Carolina $5,560,000; Iowa,
in the van of educational progress
would have been given $560,000
and Alabama would have got $5,
201,000. Ohio, the center of col
leges would have $1,582,000, and
South Carolina, $4,428,000; Maine
would have $264,000 and Tennes
see $4,920,000. This is sufficient
to show how ridiculous the idea'
was to to tax. the north for the sup
port of the south. To the credit
of the Democratic majority of the
house committee be it said they
reported adversely. That will
probably be the last of it.
