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 matter. 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 laln to recuperate and will be heard from again. The Union labor parly prohibition ticket, put up to lure away Republi can voters, will not have any weight this year. A few were fooled in SS. bat fewer btill will swallow the bail Bext Monday. Democrats generally vote a straight ticket, and the prepon derance of those who throw iheir voles away in side shows comes from the Republican ranks. The moral is obvious. 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 road terminus. Now Astoria Engine Co. No. One gels a team of horses. Let us hope 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 tiaae an advance is made iu the elll cieDcyofthe fire department up go the insurance rates. When we only had two leather buckets and a broken wheelbarrow the rates were not as iHgbasthey are now, with the best ttd finest equipped volunteer fire department in the northwest. Ax Illinois man saw au advertise Mat several years ago calling for white pennies and offering $15 a thou Md for them. Since then he has de voted a large part ot his time to the oUection of such pennies, and now Ik teds himself with several thousand of thrm on his hands and the advertise iMQt lost The Spokane Falls Jicvlew tkiaks that he ought to join hands with the Oregon man who got an iieainfco his head that the United States government had offered a re ward of $100 for the planting of an k-mryr, flag upon the summit of Meant Hood. He put the flag there i the expense of several dollars, a Because its owners are week of time and a heaw expendi ture of energy. But the government would not pungle up the S100. 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." The Itilit and the Stage. 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 lb, in weight.' Arthur Love, manager Love's Funny Folks Combination, writes: "After a thorough trial and onvincing evidence 1 am confident Dr. King's New Discov ery for Consumption beats 'em all, and cures hen everything else fails. The greatest kindness I can do my many thousand friends is t j urge them to try it."' Free trial bottles at .J. W. Conn's drug store. JJegular sizes 50c and 1. NEW TO-DAY AUCTM -:- SALE !
