CORRESPONDENCE.
The opinions of correspondents are
their own. No communication appear
ing in this column necessarily voices tlie
belief of tbe paper itself.
To the Editor of the Astorlan:
An editorial In your Issue of Feb. 7th,
while pertinent and to the point under
proper conditions, is being used by par
ties as a basis to Influence the county
commissioners to act contrary to the
wishes of a large majority of the people
In our road district and to foist a man on
us for supervisor that we do not want.
Tha editorial referred to concludes as
folllows: "The commissioners should en
tertain no application, or petition that
advocates the appolnement of men who
are not taxpayers In their own districts.'
As before stated, the doctrine Is sound
enough but' there are exceptions, and our
district is one of them. It is a well recog
nized proposition that a man cannot
carry on two or more businesses widely
different, either of which If properly con
ducted would occupy his whole time,
without one or the other being more or
less neglected and suffering In proportion.
For Instance, a thrifty, well to do farmer
will find enough work on his farm at
which he can profitably spend his tlmo
from early morning until dark, and even
then find plenty left undone. All of our
best farmers recognize this, and It is
generally with great difficulty that one
naving u.11 uie qutuuictmuurj in muuteu
to accept the office of supervisor. The
reason, Is that one dislikes to be con
nected with any undertaking that he
knows he cannot make staisfactory to
either hinaself or his neighbors, without
pecuniary sacrifice greater than he can
afford. A less conscientious man we do
not want. " When otherwise It Is poor
service and plenty of cost. A light rain
and threatening morning will sometimes
. . . . 1 - HTl 1 . . i
C.UI a supervisor to remarjt iu m wu w
for Jiay, so we will work on the road."
An hour or too later It clears up, and, as
it will not do to let good weather slip by,
they go back to the Held. The tempta
tion to charge the full half day to the
road Is not always overcome. Another
thing Is that generally and perforce work,
instead of being done In the proper sea
son. Is left until fall and applied just
before the rainy season, the result being
an Impassable highway until the middle
of the following summer. We have con
sidered all this and much more, and real
ize that the road problem is one of the
greatest confronting farmers. We con
cluded the best way to do was to select
a competent and honest man who under
stands road making better than any of
us, and who can devote his whole time
to it and at the proper time of the year.
Forty-six of us out of a possible fifty or
fifty-five, have signed a petition to have
him appointed, but two or three 'of the
balance are endeavoring to defeat us with
the aid of your article and some misrep
resentation. It is true our man Is not a
heavy taxpayer, but he owns some land,
has a horse, cow. and Is thrifty and prov
ident, tnd has the qualifications we want
Our district embraces the road for which
ro much money has been contributed by
the citizens of Astoria and we want some
thing to show them for the money, and a
road from Young's bay to Seaside that can
be traveled. We hope the commlsslonerr
will stay with us and that you will give
this space.
Very Respectfully,
ROAD DISTRICT NO. 5.
Mr. Editor: V
' In your last issue I see an article in
intinn to th Y. M: C. Association, In
Which is the inquiry, "Why Is it the
.aointinn rfoea " not Drosper?" As the
inquiry is directed specially to any one,
I will, with your permission, present a
few thoughts. The name "Young Men's
Christian Association." as constitute,!
and conducted here, 14 a misnomer, for
la It may be seen many old gray-bearded
men, who are old in church work, younj
men and old boys. This is all wrong for
many reasons. Our boys and young men
are taught to, and desire to respect old
age, and Inclined to defer to them, and
feel a timidity in the presence of old per
sons, in saying or doing that which they
their equals. It
Is certainly not In keeping with the or
iginal Intention and spirit of the organ
ization as set forth In an early day. It
was a place for young men and boys to
assemble and converse, improve their
minds and morals, fitting themselves to
become better citizens, and the better
to do the work set before them euner
in the church or out of It It Is a fact
that must be recognized In the church
and moral societles.as well as in politics,
that young men are pushing to the front,
and want to do, and will do, a given a
chance; bence I say give the boys a
chance. Old men withdraw, graduate, or
superannuate and leave the field open to
them. The work may not be done as old
hands would do It, but the results would
be better, and brighter young men would
be brought out. I would have a by-law
retiring all men at a certain age, say 30
to S years, sending them into the
church to continue their work; and also
- all men. Irrespective, when they marry,
advising them to enter the church, where
th!r Ivm mav to with them, where
they will find plenty of work to do, leav
lng their places to be filled by the on
coming generation of young men,

yesterday. The water caused by the melt

undermined, but a good deal of the road

THE PILOT BILL
Despite the opposition of
the U. P., Campbell's Pilot
Bill has passed, and once
more our pilots will bo en
abled to make a decent living.
. Prosperity for one olnsa is to the
benefit ot all; there's no gain in
sending money out of town, or by
patronizing concerns who bring
their old trash here and take our
good money away from us.
If you believe in building
up j'our . town, trade with
your home merchants, who
stand by you in hard timeh
as . well as when times are
good.
You cannot possibly do better
than by troding with tbe Reliable
Clothier, Herman Wise, because
bia st)ck is first-class and his
prices are tery reasonable.
