CiCj-l Comhij-Official Paper.
It is none too soon to agitate the
Bintier ol Oregon's proper represen
tation at the world's fair in Chicago.
Oar state should have adequate show
ing o its varied)products.
The tide land question in "Washing
ton is not yet settled, and interested
parties in Wahkiakum and Pacific
counties "will have to wait a year yet
before final action is taken in the
For a comparatively trifling amount
Astoria can get a million dollars' worth
of advertising. "We allude to the pro
posed trip ot George Francis Train
around the world. TnnAsroiUAX will
chip in $100. The money can and
should be easily raised. But there
cannot be much delay about the tiling.
Thk Astomax is issued every day
in the year. It has the largest circula
tioa of any newspaper in the stale
ostside of Portland, publishes and
pays for more associated press dis
patches tlian any paper in the .slate
except the Oregon tan, and enjoys the
coafidence and respect of its large
circle of readers.
"Wnn.rc liberty is loved and
courage is honored the events that
were yesterday commemorated will
find affirmative response whorcver
civilization or love of country find an
echo. Decoration Day is a day hal
lowed by patriotism, ennobled by
sacrifice and consecrated to the mem
ory of those who died for their conn
try. WELt, how about that big hotel?
Those schemes should not be allowed
to end in just talk. A good newspaper,
a good theater, a hotel are three prime
factors in building up a city. The As
toriax appears every day in the week,
every day in the year, without inter inter
misseon: the theater is being brought
ap to existing requirements: how
about that hotel.
WASHDfGTON' papers say that they
expect to see Washington ahead of
Oregon in wealth as illustrated by the
forthcoming census returns. It is not
improbable. Washington has no law
taxing mortgages or allowing exemp
tion of indebtedness in ;issessofs
reports. Oregon has both, and those
twin fetters of progress arc enough to
cripple any commonwealth.
After eight months of successful
effort as editor of the Port Towuscnd
Morning Leader. W. L. Jones has
sold that paper: in his farewell he
rays that those eight mouths have
broken him down in health, and
tbat his success has been purchased at
the price of shattered nerves and an
eafeeblcd frame. Jones goes to Ilono

Bext Monday. Democrats generally
vote a straight ticket, and the prepon

away in side shows comes from the
Republican ranks. The moral is
HwThe fact is well known,' says the
Seattle Press:, 'that any railroad line
that successfully bids for an equal
share ot the commerce of the North
west must enjoy even- facility, includ
ing the safe and economical union with
deep sea transportation. The uses of
a railroad do not end with a coast line;
they extend across the ocean and to
foreign lands.'' Our Sound contem
porary thus tersely outlines the reason
why Astoria should and shall be a rail

the insurance magnates will not hear
ot it for a week or so. As soon as
they do they will put up the rates in
Astoria. They always do. Every

wheelbarrow the rates were not as

Tnc days of heroism are not past
We have heroes all around us, ready
to do deeds of daring at any moment
There was a fire at Seattle last Thurs
day morning, burning eleven buildings
containing lodging houses. Here is
an episode of the dreadful scene, from
a dispatch relating the progress of the
fire: "Among the many melo-drama-tic
incidents at the fire was the rescue
ot W. W. Corbetl and family, a Chi
cago newspaper man, by Wm. Barber,
of Tacoma, who proved himself a ver
itable hero. While the flames were at
their height Barber noticed the woman
holding a babe in her arms in the
third-story window of the Pioneer
house. lie ran up the stairs
adjoining the house until he
raeched the third story, where he
found an alley eight feet wide and
foriy feet deep between the two houses.
Without an instant's hesitation he
sprang across the chasm and caught
the window sill opposite. Groping
through the smoke and flame, he
found lh room, grabbed the woman
and threw her on the mattress held by
men beneath. He next lowered the
child down, then seized 3Ir. Corbett
and saved him the same way, though
the man was dazed by the smoke and
resisted his rescuer. Then the brave
man swung himself out, lauding safely
on the mattress, amid the cheers of the
immense crowd, who watched the
thrilling rescue with horror depicted
on their faces. If Barber had fallen
in his leap from window to window he
woidd undoubtedly have been dashed
to pieces. It was one of the most gal
lant deeds performed in the year."

Uev. F. M. Shrout, pastor United
brethren Church, Blue Mound, Kansas,
says: "1 feel it my duly to tell what
wonders Dr. King's New Discovery has
done for me. My luns were badly dis
eased, and my parishioners thought 1
could live onlv a few weeks. I took
five bottles of J)r. King's New Discov
ery and am sound and well, gaining 2G

Arthur Love, manager Love's Funny
Folks Combination, writes: "After a
thorough trial and onvincing evidence
1 am confident Dr. King's New Discov
