THE COMINO OPPORTUNITY.
With tine decided advent of spring,
the blooming of flowers, songs of birds
and bright, warm sunshine, has come
a general feeling of encouragement
sand confidence all over the city,
Nothing bo dispels the clouds and re
news hope aa the smiling faoe of na
ture, and when favorable natural
eonditaws exist, backed up by the de
termination of vigorous and entorprw-
fcur men to strain every nerve to push
forward public prosperity in the com
munity in which they live, aid in the
growth of their city along safe and
permanent lines, sumotmng has to
give way and take the place of the
old lethargy. Sue a state of affairs

followed to Its logical conclusion. The

great things out of Nazareth in 1S97.
Wars and rumors of wars fill the Eu
rODean air. a railroad war of eicant c
proportiune threatens the 'United
States, the result of the supreme court
decision in the trans-Missouri case
tinder th? anti-trust law, which, de
spite all efforts, may unsettle bus'ness
throughout the land yet the little A
toria railroad is dally nearing comple
tion and its relations already estab
lished to transcontinental tines are
such as to guarantee success from
the butttset. Following the rail
road H is well known that several
Industrial enUrprUM-s, suirpltm-mtary
to It, and which will establish the tin
pan brigades so much needed In Asv
toria, are under consideration for this
season, and will be inaugurated if
proper support can be obtained. As
a result of these great changes, can
be seen in ithe near future the building
up here of onj of the greatest com
mercial canters on the Pacific coast
and the establishment of a large Ori
ental traffic. If the latest rumors
from London are correct, that J. J.
Em, the president of ith? Great NV-nh-arn,
has succeeded in effecting a com
bine of that roa1 with the Northern
Pacific, Northern Steamship Co., the
Canadian Pacific and the Baltimore &
Ohio, the magnitude and conse
quence of the deal can hardly be es
timated, and despite broken asicia
tkins and rate wars, which will be
hut temporary (as the feod .-cue of
the American people will firoe con
gress to legalize tfo? polling of rea
sonable rates), Astoria will receive its
full meed of profit and benefit fiom
the combination, which cannot fail to
add to Its prosperity In hundreds of
different directions. Added to this, the
interest of the .ou;hern Pacific
here, its reported acquirement of the
O. It. & X., and possibly the Sh rt
Line (already outlined In the press dis
patches, and the reported appoint
ment of T. F. Oake? as president of
the O. R. & N.), It can be e-en that
Astoria will be one of the Important
termini of the great transcontinenitaj
railways and will play no unlmport.

The democrat who are ridiculing
the legal effect of the retroactive
clause of the Dingle y bill have short
memorif, or are Ignorant of the fact
that their own party established the
precedent for hat provision of the
law. it la baaed right square on the
fcrfsfcjo of the United States supreme
oourt Involving- a similar provison of
th Wilson aot. The Wilson, bill did
mil Iwoonm a law unlH August 2.

should be levfcd on and alter AuguM

supreme court decided that the rates
became operative on the date divlaivd
by he act, although that date was
twonty-four day before the bill he
came a law.
If Oreov and Turkey annihilate

The opening so successfully of the

EVF.ItYTHINO GOES WRONG
In the bodily mechanism vhen the
liver gets out of order. Constipation,
dyspepsia, contamination of the llxd.
Imperfect assimilation, are certain to
ensue. But It Is easy to prevent
these consequences, and remove their
cause, by a course of Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, which stimulate the
biliary organ and regulates Its action.
The direct result is a JlsapieArance
of the pains beneath the ribs uid
throusrh the shoulder blade, the nau

furred look of the tongue, and sour
odor of the breath, which characterlie
