The caimerymen of the Columbia are
quick to forget They do not seem to
Imaglno that details of their business
methods are sufficiently known to outsid
ers to enable those outsiders- to speak
with any degree of certainty about mat
ters alfeotlng their Interests. And we are
sorry to say that In some Instances, even
when oaoners have been compelled to
acknowledge the excellence of suggestions
Wide, they have failed to act on them
simply because It might look like conced
ing too much, might compromise them as
It were to acknowledge that they did not
. know all about the lde before It ap
peared In print. This Is neither business
nor common sense.
The tag label proposition that we have
advocated more than once In these col
umns Is not a new thing nor do we clulm
any special merit ifor having brought It
forward, but the Astorlan desires to say
that the proposition, In tonnectlon with
the Columbia River salmon Industry, con
tains the germ of one of the finest strokes
of commercial- enterprise ever made by
any body of men on the continent. Since
the advocacy of this matter wUs started
by this paper, Printers' Ink, the most
expensive advertising medium in the
country, has seen lit to make mention- of
the Idea editorially and to advise Us adop
tion. The free advertisement thus given
the scheme could not have been obtained
for hundreds of dollars. As we have
before suited the adoption' of the combi
nation tag and the judicious and sys
tematic advertising of the trade mark
thus decided on in the leading family pa
pers of the country will not only educate
the consumer quicker than he can be
reached in any otiher wuy, but will make
Us Influence felt before next season's
Ashing begins. Throughout the winter
months this advertising should be con
tinually kept up, and the harvest will
be reaped la the spring. Mot as long,
mark you, as the farmer has to watt for
his crop by a good three months. And
yet the canners hesitate and, taking ref
uge In the fact that ttiey are at the pres
ent moment a little busy, try to bury the
Idea under a bushel of heaped up letters
and think no more of tt.
We hear a great deal In this part of
the country about the "dltete Eust," and
the smart, wideawake, soft-hatted busi
ness geniuses of the Wast, but it seems
as If the real conditions have been re
versed. Confident methods In commercial
life and that free habit of superiority
that a man unconsciously breathes in
from tihe Utr. when he comes to the west
era part of the continent, are all well
enough and no doubt go a, considerable
distance towards success. But they are
not everything. It takes deep thinking,
and lots of It nowadays, to keep one In
the front rank of the business world.
New Ideas and fresh original methods
must have full swing. The opera
tor In any line of work must be
bold, shrewd, and above ull able to
best his competitors by superior general
ship. And the Columbia River canner
has competitors who, up to the present
time at any rate, faave proved themselves
Just as capable and as bright us he has
been dull and slow-witted. The Ideas of
the humdrum vlliuge grocer with an es
tablished trade In candles and tobacco,
and. with an abiding faith In the efficacy
of his "standf to bring custom, are pre
cisely on the same plane as the business
notions of our local canners. One ciuss
has no more originality of method than
the other, and both alike are Imbued with
that spirit of calm confidence which
makes Its possessors blind to every chan
nel of progress and Improved methods.
From the humblest peanut vendor who
tries by a callnpe attachment to his stoam
cooker to attract purchasers, up to the
largest manufacturers In the world,
ranges this spirit of advancement In bus
iness methods. "Forward" Is the watch
word of commercial life, the very essence
of commercial existonce, und the men
who persistently refuse to wake up and
get out of the rut of old-fashioned ways
may as well shut up shop right away.
It will come to that before long, anyhow,
whether they do It now or not.
We know that the average man has
very well imbedded notions of his own
Importunes and that h la loth" to be told
anything that relUcts on bis extraordi
nary brilliancy, or his marvellous powers
of perception. But we cannot help think
lng that It tias got to the time when a
few stralst words to the cannerymen of
the Columbia Rtcr will not be out of
p'.nce. They have come to the meeting
of the roa'Sii. Ten yrtirs of stupidity
have landed many of them In rocky har
bors, and In a few mor seasons several
will be hunting In a palnul and anxious

way they want to steer, and If they In
tend to allow their all-pervading knowl
edge to point out the road, they bad bet
ter quit business at once. If on the other
hand they can get together enough com
mon sense to read the signs to the com
merckU sky they will be enabled not
oniy tfsave their great industry for suc
ceeding generations to thrive on, but will
have the satisfaction of reaping the ben
efit of their change of heart before an
other year.
Jam a S. Stanton, a noted South Amer
ican -mining expert,' passed through Wash
Ington recently, and, discussing the free
el.ver craze which he found In bis trav
els through parts of the South and West,
expressed the opinion that it would be
well for the free coinage advocates to
Investigate the experience of countries
that have been on a silver basis for
"I have watched," said Mr. Stanton,
"with considerable interest the arguments
and prophesies of free silver advocates. I
have wondered why some of them don't
produce the evidence of some ona who has
been an actual resident of a free silver
country. Free silver countries are numer
ous to the south of us, and, surely, there
must be a number of good people close by
who have had more or less experience
as residents In those countries. They are
qualified to tell, not how It might, could,
would or should work, but exactly how
It does work, From long-continued dully
Intercourse with merchants, clerks, and
laborers, and people In all the vocations
of life In such countries, I know what
are the conditions of people in free-silver
Why elaborate on theories, when the
actual results and cold facts ore easily
accessible land almost stare us In the
face? In the free silver latitudes I have
been honored with the personal acquaint
ance of nice-looking dry goods clerks
who had reached the salary limit at $3
per week (in our money). Dignified, bare
footed policemen at $12 per month (our
money). 1 The merchant bias to depend on
cable quotations from foreign countries
to keep informed what his own native
money is worth. The large mercantile
bouse pays for regular cable advices so
many times a week. He never knows
when he closes at night what his money
will be worth next morning. I have seen
scores of pay rolls paid out in which all
section laborers (railroad) receive 60 cents
per day In silver. These countries had
magnificent cities before this government
was formed, and yet every nineteenth
century improvement has had to be pro
posed, carried there, introduced and op
erated by enterprising citizens from gold
countries. The free silver natives often
ask why their dollar is worth two-thirds
less thun ours."
The victory for the sound money men
on the platform deliverance in the Ken
tucky convention was complete und over
whelming. At every point the silverltes
were beaten. This is an Appomattox vic
tory for the honest dollar cause. Out
side of Colorado, Montana and Nevada,
the sliver monometallists are outnum
bered, outclassed and discredited.
The report that a British fleet la to be
massed on the coast of Nicaragua indi
cates two things: (1) That England pro
poses to dispute the control of the Nlcnr
ragua canal by tnls country alone; und
(2) that It regards the Cleveland adminis
tration as better to shovs around than the
next one will be.

eau. The promotion of silver In the
United States in 1892 ran up to 63,600,000
ftne ounces. Last year, as shown by
Director Prestom's Satest estimates, which
will toe subject to tout slight revision, the
produo:Con of sliver in this country was
only 9,600,000 ounces, sv reduction of 14,
M.0OO on noes. To kihis extent the mining
eyrwlnoite ts running a corner, for M has
S opped mtning as far as possible, but It
tus not soCd Its mines, and experts say
tL-tere to more silver m sight in the west
than ever before. The product of 1802
could toe equaled In another year without
trouble and with but a small comparative
tncre-ise in operating expenses. The coin
age value of the silver output of 1892 In
this country, as ilmated by the dtrecto.'
of the mint, wias &Z.101.ai0, but the bullion
value at CU cents per ounce, the average
markvt price the lost year, was only
Ki9.ft7.SO0. Thus, on the basis of the 1892
output, the mine-owners would In one
year make over f 10.000,000 by free coinage
at tihe expense of fahe people of the coun
try. Owing to tihe low price of silver hun
dreds of rich mining properties in the
west have been abandoned .temporarily
end o.-.-'.y those have been worked which
have special transpontatiian facilities or
In which silver la not the only metal
mined at a. promt. Competent men say
the annual silver production of this coun
try -under a tree coinage stimulus could
be pressed to a hundred mlMlona of fine
ounces -wtlthout difficulty, while the rela
tive cedt of production would actually be
decreased. The center of the agitation
for eMver the lairt year was In the United
States senate. Ttie leaders of the move
ment iwere Teller and Wolcott of Color
ado, wihose ritaite in 1802 bad a record of
26,632,300 ftne ounces of wilver; Power of
Monltana, with 10,038,800 ounces back of
him; Dubois and tShupe of Idaho, who
talked for 8,461,200 ounces; Jones and
Stewart of NevaxJa, representing only 46,
701 people, 2,464,600 ounces of silver. These
four states of Colorado, (Montana, Idaho
and (Nevada contributed In 1892 to the
world's etock of silver 61,686,800 fine
ounces. When to this ts added the 8.490.
800 ounces of Utah the rtotal production of
the Ave states is swelled to 60,077,600
ounoos, or witfhln about 8,600,000 ounces of
Who Koto! production of tlhe country In
1892. Stewart -went to Memphis with Sib
ley and both he and Joms have cut
themselves off from the Republican party
on the silver question alone. Tom Power
of "Montiaiivi Is expected to manage the
forces of the silver men alt Cleveland.
Dubois of Idaho bos been In Wash
ington pouring out threats of rebellion,
but he wai turn up alt Cleveland. Teller
Is the real candidate of tlhe silver men
for tlhe presidency, for Don Cameron
cornea from a coal state and represents
no real silver sentiment, while Sibley Is
a good feCQofW who knows more about fine
horsea than mining and could not tell
a piece of peacock silver from a chunk
of 'iron pyrites.

The objections urged against Indio
In the past by the large numbers who
otherwise would have been glad to tak
advantage of its benellclal climate, has
been a lack of suitable accommoda
tion. The Southern Pacific Company,
takes pleasure In announcing that sev
eral Commodious and
Comfortable Cottages
have Just been erected at Indio sta
tion, that will be rented to applicants
at reasonable rates. Tfcey are fur
nithed with modern conveniences, sup
plied with pure artesian water, and so
situated as to gove occupants alt the
advantages to be derived from a more
or less protracted residence In this de
lightful climate.
(From the San Francisco Argonaut.)
"In the heart of the great desert ot
the Colorado whioh the Southern Pa
citio road traverses there is an oasis
called Indio, which, In our opinion, It
the sanitarium of the earth. We be
lieve, from personal investigation, thai
for certain invalids, the-e la no spot or
this planet so favorable."
Q. T. Stewart, M. D., writes: "The
purity of the air, and the eternal sun
shine, fill one with wonder and delight
Nature has- accomplished sc
much that there remains but little for
man to do. Aa to its possibilities as a
health resort, 'here Is the most per
fect sunshine, with a temperature al
ways pleasant, a perfectly dry soil
for rain is an unknown factor; pure
oxygen, dense atmosphere and pure
water. What more can be desired T
It Is the place, above all others, for
lung troubles, and a paradise for rheu
matics. Considering the number of
sufferers who have been cured, I have
no hesitancy In recommending this
genial oasis as the haven of the afflict
