-1 WORD OF WARRING.
Wnru: additions and suburbs and
plate arc all right, and no fault is to be
found Tritb. anything that lays legiti
mate chum to location, yet a word of
warning is requisite regarding the ten
dency to bank on Astoria's prestige by
advertising "additions" bearing eu
phonious names, but with no actual
claim to suburban locality. Such
practices injure Astoria and the sale
et Astoria and outlying property.
Take, for instance, the alleged addition
of "Bosedalo." People come here
who have bought "lots" in "Kosedale,"
a little tract ten miles from anywhere,
baek in the tall timber, and with as
uch right to bo called an "addition"
a Saddle mountain, and are
arpriscd and disappointed when
they leam tho truth. Such ac
tion may not be outside of the
law, but it should be exposed. It
tunes rery near to obtaining money
wider false pretenses to sell "lots" to
i&nocent purchasers in denso timber,
tar removed from any possibility of
being within hailing distance of this
tttr this century.
Virn regard to tho theory of property-holding
which lies at tho basis
ef all state socialism, it may bo well
to redirect attention to tho fact that
laud was originally held in common
by the first possessors of the earth,
ad only passed into private owner
ship when its longer tenure upon any
Biker basis would have resulted in the
teolument of the most Ehiftless in
tke community at tho espouse of the
wwt industrious. Property lias passed
ace, and apparently for all time,
through tho stage of being hold in
urnnon by tho tribe or nation for
tk benefit of the whole, though
aommon tenure in land still prevails
Uaong soino of tho peoples of tho
aet, and inures, we are told, vory lit
U to their improvement Evon tho
Indians on our reserves bear -witness
to the necessity for private owner
kip, and secure to the thrifty the
onferoal occupation of his home aud
farmstead by a rough unwritten law,
haring to the unthrifty tho right to
kant over and how wood from only
ch portions of the domain as have
ot yet been cultivated, in common
with his more thrifty comrade.
T&k Chinese government is contem
plating a revolution in the coinage of
that country, wliich is now of copper,
tanging in value from about a mill to
a oin worth about 20 cents in face
vain, without either gold or silver
ins. Bars of gold and silver bullion,
lowever, are used in commerce, and
tfec Mexican silver dollar circulates
-xtensivGly in tho seaboard cities. It
it xkjw proposed by the Chinese gov
ernment to make silver a money metal
sad to issuo a series that will
respond somewhat to our dollars,
halves, quarters and dimes. Tho coin
age will be uniform throughout tho
vast empire, rith its 430,000,000 pop
ulation at least six and a half times
that of tho United States. This will
pen a new market for the silver of
the world and ought to make silver
higher in price and aid in re-establish-g
its old-time ratio with goid.
Tszfact begins to crop out hero and
there, through theory and speculation,
tkat nobody knows yet what is tho
ral war liko value of some of the most
eetly and important improvements
that have been made or proposed. Is
a hundred-ton gun so much more
jiowerful than a ten-ton gun that
rk efficiency will repay the increased
cet? Is a ten-thousand-ton ship,
aeed in a foot of steel armor all over,
ge ranch more destructive to an
semy'B navy or commerce or sea
oast cities than a small, swift, well
armed Teasel that it will pay to recon
struct navies, partially, at least, with
up chips? Nobody knows by trial or
Ms. ExxBALtt, the sapient superin
tendent of the life saving service is a
. example of how a being can walk
erect on two legs with the outward
semblance of humanity and still be a
donkey. Congressman Hermann re
cently, went before a congressional
committee in an attempt to have ade
quate appropriation for increased life
saving service on this coast. Superin
tendent Kimball opposed it because
no one had ever been drowned at
these places. He wants to wait

seamen drowned before af

Durixg 1889 tho amount of opium
smuggled into the United States along
the shores of Paget sound has been
variously estimated at from 500 to
1,000 pounds per week. With the duty
at $10 per pound the amount lost by
the government may be easily calcu

The nickname of North Dakota is
the "flickertail state." This completes
the list of tho four new common
wealths. South Dakota is the
"swinge-cat state. Washington is the
"chinook state," and Montana is the
tho uso of Hood's Sarsaparilla. Berere
cases of scrofula, upon which other prep
arations have been powerless, yield to tho
peculiar curative powers of tlili medicine.
Distressing cases of dyipepsla, excruciat

of rheumatism, aro cured by Hood' Sar

"For four years my wlfo suffered with
largo tumor bunches on tho glands under
tho arms, ind general debility of tho whole
system. She became so poor In health
that wo were on tho vergo of despair
regarding her recovery. Physicians did
not seem to understand her case; at all
events she never derived any benefit front
their treatment. She finally concluded tc
try Hood's Sarsaparilla. The immediate
effect was so marked and satisfactory that
she continued to take It, and this Is the
result: She has gained in weight
From 84 to III Pounds
and is stronger and in better health than
she has been for years. The bunches under
her arms have diminished, and we believe
Hood's Sarsaparilla will bo too much for
them in time." J. J. Noncaoss, 236 Com.
