ASTORIA, OREGON:
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 29. 1883
THANKSGIVING DAY.
The annual recurrence of the day
on which Americans by common cdn
sent unite in thanks to the Creator of
all good, finds on this November day
many reasons to be thankfuL In a
national sense it is good and pleasant
to feel that sixty million American
citizens have a Thanksgiving day, and
have, as a nation, abundant cause for
thanks. In arts and sciences, in pro
gress and intelligence, in the victo
ries that peace achieves, we lead in
triumph. Locally, we of this genial
northwest have cause for thanks and
gratulation; no storms whelm, no
cold overcomes, no disaster car
ries sorrow to any gather
ing of homes, there is work
for the industrious; a competence for
the thrifty, and an abundance for
those that seek it As a community
we have no less reason for thanks that
our share of the common prosperity
is an assured one, and that no dis
aster marks in sorrow the year; as in
dividuals we all have doubtless rea
sous for feeling thankful for dangers
averted, for troubles passed away,
for griefs that time's hand assuages,
and for blessings that brightening as
they vauished gave promises of peace
and inward quiet for the heart
As Americans we have not holidays
enough; we all live in too much of a
bustle and worry that begets a fever
ish haste to get on regardless of the
plainest requirements of life's func
tions. As a sanitary regulation it
wore better for the American people
that holidays came oftener, and were
generally observed when thoy did
come. In its religious aspect, the
observance of to-day is peculiarly fit
ting and appropriate, Differ as we
may on minor points of doctrine and
belief, yet, "one touch of nature
makos the whole world kin," and the
fitness of devoting one day in the
twelve months to the praise and serv
ice of Him "who doeth all things
well'' is recognized by all creeds and
climes as meet and proper.
Tun Walla Walla Union is arguing
in favor of division of Washington
Territory, but its arguments in that
direction don't seem to be any better
indorsed than the arguments of the
same paper some time ago in favor of
shipping wheat to Puget Sound. To
divide Washington Territory would
be a great mistake, though if it were
divided the western part of the Terri
tory would have the best of the
bargain.
I'odkteex thousand witnesses have
been supoenaed to testify in a csise at
Buda Pesth. in Hungary. This is
worse than the present trial in Port
land.
Ax Ohio judge has decided that it
is not "disorderly conduct" to hurrah
over the election of candidates.
