What Uie people ot tlie state want
So lniotr is, Avill these hitches and in
terruptions more than tempomrily re

The road -will be built That is an
"VTc notice that there is a suspension
of railroad talk in Albany and Salem
Our newspaper friends there have not
so much to say as recently. They are
justifiable. The trouble rith Salem
and Albany is that no exact, definite
form of procedure has as yet been de
vised. The Astoiuak suggest to both those
enterprising communities a -way that
will, or it seems should be mutually
Of course neither Salem or Albany
runt to have either get any advantage.
That is natural. "Why not unite,
and agree on all1 Let it be agreed
that the road, when built, shall branch,
one arm running into Salem, the other
into Albany, thus putting each city on
an equal fooling, so far as a railroad
outlet to Oregon's seaport is con
cerned. In union is strength. Astoria means
business. Our city vcould be glad to
sec unity prevail and have Salem and
Albany unite upon some such propo
sition. "What say yon Statesman and Jour
nal and Herald and Democrat to the
Tm: Salt Lake Tribune says that
the Scandinavians are rapidly leaving
the Mormon church. The Scandi
navian Methodists and Lutheraus are
the cause ot it. For two years or so
they have worked quietly, but mo3 1
effectually, among the Scandinavian
saints, and have cut swath after swath
in the ranks of the church. At the
rate they have lecn holding revivals
and gathering in the harvest from the
Mormon fields, there will only be a
corporal's guard of Scandinavians left
in Salt Lake Israel by another year.
They are being converted faster to
Christianity than the elders can send
over fresh supplies, and when once
converted from rvTormonism males ex
Tnrai: have been several decided
thangesin the amount and character
ct the circulating medium during the
rost year. In the first place the cir
culation has increased from $1,331,
31O2S0 October L 18SS, to Sl,103,018.
W3 October 1, 1SS9, or $20,077,720.
The principal change in the character
ol the money in the hands of the peo
ple is in silver certificates. Their cir
culation is now $270,019,723, or $3S,
053.114 greater than a year ago. Tins
increase is attributed more to the
withdrawal from circulation of na
tional bank notes than to any one
other cause, although the increasing
business demands of the country con
tributed maferiallv to the result.
A great many small towns of the
northwest want manxifacturics. This
is all right. Their efforts should bo
supported. There is, however, an ob
stacle. Manufacturers coming from
the east have to depend on a local
market first. Hence the centers of
population get them. And they will
continue to secure them unless the
smaller cities can compete by offering
inducements in the line of land, free
dom from taxation, and financial aid.
Astoria must grasp these possibil
ities. Evekt town cannot bo a large city.
There seems lobe a wild desire es
pecially in "Wasliington to lay out
cities. Almost every week we read
how this or that place is ''destined to
be a big metropolis." Some boomers
will be terribly deceived. Let immi
gration increase fifty per cent during
this year and not a fifth of these des
tined cities will show a great increase
of business and population. Where
are all the people coming from is the
question that stops one.
AJD.eciri.has come to judgment in
Montreal, where a man has been con
tlesased to pay the sum of one dollar
as damages for having called upon a
person in a factory with a view to col
lectiag a debt. The court held that
the domicile of the debtor is the proper
place at which to demand money that
is owisg. It further declared that to
ask ob the street for mono- that is
de constitutes an assault.

A "Washington county, Ivan., man
named Steers mortgaged "four white

that the man mortgaged his four chil

amendments to state constitutions de

This Is "Wrote Sarcastic
Advertising is the way foolish men
spend their money; smart men spend
theirs smoking, drinking and playing
poker. "When smart men get a dollar
they blow it in that way or salt it

hard earned coin and keeps it in circu
lation; that is why he is a fool. Now
just stop and think if everybody would
stop and not spend a cent for three
mouths, wouldn't things bo lively?

A DEAD BODY
Foaud On The Ilcncli At Seville.
Seaside, Or., Jan. 27, 1890.
Deak Sin: Joseph Lane came to
me this morning and told me there
was a dead man on the weather beach.
I went with him to examine the body,
and see what could be done. When
I got there I found that the body had
been dead so long that the we could
' not find much by which to describe
! him. He seemed "to be about five feet
long, with a very round, head. The
head was all bare, no llesh left on it.
The skull was perfect. I could not see
any bruises on it; both hands were
gone and one foot. The remaining
' foot had a lace shoe on; it seemed
I somewhat new; would think it about
2?o. 7; had no coat on; had on an over
I shirt with large black buttons. The
I under shirt was go faded we could not
' tell the color, but would think it had
j been red. He had on a pair of cheap

nothing but a door key, by which it
may be possible to identify him, as it
had a piece of a door lock tied to it
with vt piece, of string or heavy cord.
He had on a pair of suspenders. From
the appearance of the remaius I would
take 1dm to be a rancher. There was
nothing more on the body to give any
clue to him, but the key. We took
tho body up from the tide water and
left it loawait further orders from you.
So you will please come down, or send
