The speech mad by Senator S-iulre, of
Washington, on Wednesday last. In
which he portrayed the defenseless con
dittos of the American seacoast cities
gainst naval bombardment of high
power run and the necessity for taking
Immediate step te protect them by bat
teries armed by similar artillery. I an
admirable presentation of the case.
The senator was especially In earnest
because be represents a stats whosa cities
on the Pacfllc and oa Puget sound Se
attle as one would be utterly at the
mercy of any hostile fleet armed with
modern guns.
The senator stated and he kept within
bounds In his figures that "a large
mount of destructible property, esti
mated at not less than flO,(W,iX)0,irt) In
value. Is exposed to attack, or at least
to heavy assessment for the purpose of
securing Immunity from destruction.'
This estimate does not Include combusti
ble property In Chicago. Milwaukee. De
troit, Cleveland. Duluth, Duffalo and
other lake cities which would be menaced
In a case of war with Great Britain.
In New York. Brooklyn and Jersey City
alone property worth RV).U Is sub
ject to ransom or to destruction for kick
of coast defenses.
"And yet." said the senator, "while
such Is the perilous condition of affairs
congressmen are making fiery speeches
to enforce the Monroe doctrine and de
manding that the United States Intervene
on behalf of Venezuela or Cuba, even
though that Intervention should lead to
war for which they must know the
country Is utterly unprepared, at least,
with Great Britain. " The people ought
to know that Senator Pjotn told the
naked truth when he said:
"Every man who ha Inform-d himself
' on the suhject of national def en es knows
that as a nation w? are not In con
dition to undertake war or suffer war.
We can talk loud and loni;. and profess
sympathy, pass resolutions, and make
believe to ourselves that we are actually
taking a hand In the diplomatic affairs
and international questions of great mo
ment, but those who are not self-deceived
by egotistical glamour and who know the
iruin, mai mi oemanpimiion is mere i
talk and bluster and vapid wntlment. or
at most It is a sympathy thnt is easily j
satisfied with merely verbal expressions." i
It Is the business of the Vnted State
Just now to keep out of conflicts with
strong naval powers, no matter how Just
our cause of resistance. As a choice of
evils we are under the necessity of sub
mitting to wrong and oppression. The
first and highest duty of this nation Is
to put Itself Into a condition where no
foreign power can successfully assault it
or lay its cities In ashes or under contri
bution. Senator Squire says correctly that the
coast cities are not to be defended by
warships. The navy Is mainly for ag
gression, not for defense of ports. To
build a navy powerful enough to defend
the seaboard cities effectively would cost
hundreds of millions of dollars. A mill
ion Invested In forts and high-power guns
will yield better results than live mill
ions spent on war vessels. The cost of
maintenance of warships -Is ten-fold
greater than for forts and In times of
peace fifty times a much.
The senator also called attention to the
fact that England. In spite of her Im
mense navy, has not neglected her sea
coast defenses either at home or In the
colonies, and argued that this govern
ment should pursue the same policy: and
that congress should adopt the landing
bill appropriating Vfi.m.Hfl for coast de
fenses. thus protecting at comparatively
small cost billions of dollars' worth of
public and private property. Said he:
"Fabulous wealth lies at the mercy ot
a freebootlng enemy, if such shall at anv
time elude our small and scatt-rd nm-T.
Our foreign commerce and our coasting
trade are alike without harbors of refuge
behind land defenses. Our creat dry
docks and shlnbull.linir yards, our arms,
factories and powder mills near the coast
are subject to easy destruction and our
own navy Is without proteetel banes for
receiving supplies and for effecting the
repairs that are constantly required.
And yet we plume ourselves on our
The IM.OOO.OOO fortlilcation bill should
pass the senate as -.he appropriation for
fortifications next yar passed the house,
and that was unanimously.
It Is stated that when the United States
grand Jury for th Northern district of
Illinois meets next month two score offi
cers and employes of the railroads run
ning east from Chicago will 1 aked
to tell under oath what they know of
discriminations In freight rate In favor
of large shippers and Rgalnst the small
shippers and general public. That such
discriminations have been and are made,
especially In cattle and grain shipments,
is generally believed. The witnesses
who have been subpoenaed are able to
supply the necessary Information. They
can be forced to testify at all events
under the recent decision of the supreme
court In the Brown case.
A representative of the Interstate Corn
meive Commission ha lieeit In Chicago
for some time quietly collecting; evidence
agAlnst big out tie shippers and others
who have been enjoying the llleiii.l ad
Wantage of cut rate. Alihomrh the re
cent pooling agreement of Kiistetn roads
wits made ostensibly for the purpose ot
putting a stop to those cracilcea, there
I reason to believe that they continue
ami that favored shlpix-r still act ihelr
r bates. Some evidence h-ts already
Iwn obtained.
When the official of the ten big Kist
ern roads are bniUit'tt before the grand
Jury, and are compelled to produce- their
book and tell what they know, the dis
trict attorney will beom iwsc.-wd of
some exceedingly tnt -tvstlnt- Information,
on which lu can base In llctinent which
will stick. Some of the forty suhpniicd
witnesses may net Know anything, but
there will he some who will know a great
deal-lf they divulge It.
There must be convletcd before
the law Is respected oy the stents of
the roads and the shipper that have
been guilty of violating It. When they
so-o somebody found guilty by a Jury and
sentenced by a Judge they will feel that
the law must be obey-M thereafter or
they will suffer dl.arreeable conse
quences. The communication published Jester
day from Mr. P. K. Warren on the sub
ject of wharves along the waterfront,
and the Interviews given In this Issue
upon the same question, are worthy or
the most careful consideration at the
hands of every business man In Astoria.
It must be apparent to every thinking
person that, not only because f the
pledges made by the railroad rittht of
way committees, but because of the most
vital business Interests of the city, the
docks along the water front should be at
one extended to the harbor line. It I
most probable that the United States en
gtneers knew what they were doing when
they established those lines; and the full
development of the business portion of
the city, demands the usage ot every
foot of space within those lines. All
other considerations are secondary mat
ter, and can be easily adjusted, as has
been don In similar Instances In other
cities, when the time come for -onskier-lng
them. After a fall understanding
of the situation, whlcb at the present
seems to have been only partially known
either to the council or the cltixens gen
erally, it Is not to be doubted that the
good business Jndgment and common
sense of toe eounclfcnen, supported by the
views and requirements of the business
men. will effect the seeded legislation.

Henry Ward Beecher.
This venerable woman., U years of age.

parksr where she dots her literary work
Is a cheerful and pretty room. wlw pic

numerous photographs of her dead hus
band, representing him from his early
youth to a period shortly before his
death. There Is also a statue of him
by Rogers, which is very lifelike, curi
ously enough, over the grate under the
mantel shelf, the old' family door plate,
with "H. W. Heechur" engraved on It, ,
Is fastened. Mrs. Boucher prefers to live 't
Independently, although all her- children !
have urged her to- reaide wiiti them. I

Mrs. Heecher Is still superintendent of
the Church Sewing Society, and has
deference shown to her in so ial matters.
When asked If she admires the bronze
statue of Mr. Beecher which ttands In
front of the city hall she exprtstsed a
certain distaste for Its arrangement of
drapery and position. It was Intended
as a pleasant surprise for her, but had
not proved one.
When asked if she believed that we
would recognize our loved ones after
death, she replied. "Most certainly," and
repeated a verse she had found written
on a bundle wrapper of brown paper,
without giving the author's name. It
was as follows:
"When the spring winds blow o'er pleas
ant places.
The violet Is here;
It all comes back, the garden, and the

It is very sweet and pathetic to hear
this tell her little slory of Mng a
young school teacher In h--r native N w
Kngland village, when Mr. needier, at
the age of 17, was also teaching In a
neighboring village. Th?y boarded In
the same house. Propinquity made
them lovers, and they were married when
very young.
