awered. When a man writes who
seems to mean business his commit
nication is always given prompt
and respectful attention.
But so many write who appear
to be but as the spray blown by
the wind on the crest of the waves
of the great tides of humanity's
surging sea. They only know
that they want a change, ana are
not very particular what the
To them we offer no encourage
ment. There is plenty of room in
Oregon, in this county, for men
and women who want to woik, but
there is no encouragement for the
numerous class who are looking
for something easy. They would
do well to stay where thej' are, or
go somewhere besides here.
There comes a time in some
men's lives when they want to
make a fresh start. Something in
their career makes it a wish of
theirs to begin over again some
where else. To them and such as
them it makes little difference
where they go. A man is usually
himself and lakes himself along
with him whether he go to the
crowded city or the frontier forest.
If he have within him the elements i
of success he will succeed; if he
be lazy, improvident, intemperate,
dishonest or quarrelsome he will
be a failure and no opportunity,
no friends, no propping up will
make anything of him but a final
To the willing man, the indus
trious man, the competent man, all
doors open. He carries the master
key and succeeds no matter where
he is. Locality is a secondary
consideration and whether it be in
Astoria, or Antioch or Australia or
any where else he will in no place
find brains at a discount. People
pay a man the value ho sets on
himself, if he can only show he is
worth it, and geography, climate,
or physical surroundings haven't
as much to do with it as some peo
If a man can't succeed in Kan
sas, or Iowa or Tennessee he can
hardly succeed in Oregon. If he
is doing fairly well where he is
he'd better stay there. Of all this
he is the best judge himself. In
general our advice lo would-be
immigrants is to remember that
Oregon is just like any other state:
that there is as much human nat
ure to the square foot here as any
where else; that wherever there is
a situation or an opening some
one is at once found to fill it; that
all the soft places are filled and are
rarely vacant long enough to al
low any one a chance to file an
application for the billet; thai this
13 a frontier country, thinly set
tled, full of woods and water, with
more need for strong arms than
white hands; that people arc more
than ordinarily intelligent: the
most of us are tolerably wvH post
ed and after knocking around con
siderable have made this place a
residence as a matter of choice;
-that we are apt to appropriate
whatever is going that is good and
leave the scraps and culls to those
who can't do better.
And, finally, that in case any
one cares lo come he should put
enough in his pocket to carry him
away again if he don't like the
place. 'Tis bad to to be stranded
on any coast, especially this one,
for if he once gets on the wrong
tack he will find it easier almost
anywhere else to get round on the
right conrse again.
The retention of Messrs. Gar
land and Whitney in president
Cleveland's cabinet justifies the be
lief that his excellency's expressed
policy in regard to public office
and public trust is in a state of

cationhat will tend to help pub
licly or privately, that will diffuse
cheerfulness or good feeling, that
will make people feel more charit
able, that will arouse interest or
create good intent will always find
room in these columns.
In the current number of The
Citizen there is a .suggestive arti
cle on "Public Debts,' by Henry
C. Adams. The public debt of
the civilized nations, excluding lo
cal obligations, amounts to 27,
000,000,000. This equals a mort
gage of 722 upon each square
mile of territory, or -23 per capita
of population. "It would require
for its expungement the exclusive
use of the revenue machinery for
a period of more than si eats."
This is also expressed by faying
that the "continuous labor of 3,000,
000 of men would be required to
meet the anual interest charges
which it imposes, inteiest being
estimated at 5 per cent, and wages
at 1..10 per day." Within the
past thirty-five years the average
annual deficit of the governments
of the world has been 530,000,000,
and thi, the writer declare?, has
not been from necessity, but from
If it is true, as alleged, that a
naturalist has lately discovered
that the individual bee works onlya
three hours a day, it is likely that
the ant will have a double burden
to support as the ever presentable
model of industry. Bees truly
work continuously from tunrise to
sunset, but the naturalist referred
to &ays that they are different
bees. One squad relieves another
at three-hour intervals during day
light, and the whole lot rest abso
lutely during the hours of dark
ness. NEW TO-DAY.
