Before the extension of the city lim
its, a local clothier nailed a signboard
to the trunk of a tree some distance
out on the county road, and on it had
printed the following words: "Three
miles to 's store, Astoria; seven
miles to Olney." After the corporate
limits were extended, a property owner

The typical legislature or city coun
cil or (elected) board of education, says
an anonymous writer in the March
Forum, consists of members of whom
one-third will vote as they think, or at
least as they prefer to vote, regardless
of possible advantages or disadvant
ages to themselves. The votes of an
other third are merchandise pure and
simple. The remaining third consists
of .debatable men, usually respectable
in private life, and with honest inten
tions to do their public duties, but
often rather weak in character and
likely to owe money that they cannot
pay. Whether men of this class serve
out their terms honestly depends on
the temptations they happen to en
counter. If repeatedly called on to
vote on questions affecting large com-
peting private Interests, their chances
of. remaining honest are very small.

The Astorlan received yesterday from
Bradstreets a small volume complied
with great care, and containing a conr
densed record of business failures in
the United States and Canada for the
year 1892. Among its its many inter
esting discoveries it finds that In point
of numbers failures In the United
States due to lack of capital continue
to take the jrst place,- the total for
1892 being 3,343 out of 10,270 per cent.,
though it is gratifying to note the pro
portion is smaller than In previous
years. Liabilities of those which failed
last year from this cause were less
than one-half of the corresponding to
tal In 1891. Failures due primarily to
incompetence have not varied quite as
much within three years, numbering
1916 last year or 18 per cent, as com
pered with 16 per cent due to that
cause in 1S91 and 19 per cent. In 1890.
Falnlures due to disaster numbered
fully 1674 In 1892 (19.2 per cent.), as con
trasted with 16.7 per cent. In 1891 and
12.7 per cent In 1890. There has been
an Increase of 50 per cent. In failures of
this "class within the middle states,
and that on the Pacific coast has aUo
been notably, but there has been no
great change reported year by year In
the eastern, western or northwestern
states. Southern states, where crop
conditions and floods have had some
influence, report 558 failures in this
class in 1892, against only 198 in 1890
accounting for more than one-half of
the increase from 1890 to 1892.
The record of failures due to fraudu
lent disposition of property In 1892 is
not encouraging, comprising 10.3 per
cent, of the whole number, as com
pared with 7 per cent. In 1891 and only
4 per cent. In 1890. Liabilities due to
fraudulent failures aggregated $10,194,
000 In 1892 out of a total of liabilities of
all failing traders of $108,695,000, about
9 per cent. There is seen to have been
a moderate Increase in number of fail
ures, due primarily to Inexperience, to
granting credits unwisely, In embarras
ments due to failures of others, as well
as those due to personal extravagance,
or neglecting one's business, to exces
sive competition and tot speculation
outside one's, business. There have
been decreases In total liabilities of
failures caused by lack of capital, 35
per cent, from 1890 to 1892, due to dis
aster 33 per cent'., to failures of others
03 per cent., and to granting credit un
wisely 36 per cent. Liabilities of those
failing on account of fraudulent dispo
sition of property show an Increase
from $6,612,000 in 1890 to $10,194,000 in
1892, after having aggregated $13,139,
000 in 1891.
