HOW THE ASTOIt FORTUNE GREW. Amassed by .Debauching and Swindling the Indian* Yei.m, Wasii., Aug. 27. Ed. Standard: I have just read an account of how the Astor family acquired their vast wealth, and it may interest some of the readers of your valuable paper. I think it is very rare that any man ever acquired a million dollars hon estly. Here is the story of the As tor clique as told in government aud court documents. The founder of the Astor fortune was John Jacob Astor, a German immigrant, who came to the United States in 1783 with five pounds in money. He died in 1848 leaving a fortune of $20,000,- 000, then the greatest in America. How did he get it ? The records show that he became a fur trader and swindled the Indians by first getting them drunk. After he or ganized th 6 American fur-trading company in 1810 he shipped enor mous quantities of whisky out among the Indian tribes. To sell liquor to an Indian was a serious crime in liw. But he purchased immunity by brib ing officials, something after the manner of the Oklahoma scandal ex posed recently by Senator (lore and which the administration will try to cover up. On one occasion, in 1817, he gave Lewis Cass a bribe of $85,000, and who was Cass ? Well, he was the Governor of Michigan territory in which Astor had one of his principal trading posts, and Cass later became Secretary of War. Astor charged tbe Indians from $25 to SSO per gal lon for whisky,, payable in furs. The records show that the Indians were never allowed to trade when sober. After debauching them, Astor would take further advantage of them by exchanging cheap merchandise, at exorbitant prices for their furs. He charged, for example, sl6o'for a brass thimble, $lB for a pound of to bacco, S3O for a sll rifle, $4 for pow der that cost him 20c., etc., etc. Is it any wonder that the Indians rose if revolt in retaliation and massa cred whites and murdered Astor traders ? And yet the government would hurry out troops* and shoot them down and burn their villages ! It was a long chapter of horrors. But Astor was safe in New York pulling in hi& millions. More than 150 white traders were murdered by the-Indians, but Astor s.fortune kept on increasing with murder and .mas sacre. He nireg men.to do Iris sinis ter and dirty work and bnrve death 4M>ustfn<t miles away* and reaped all the profit. The government records ■ show that he received an income of $500,000 a year from this traffic, a tremendous sum for that time. This ; is how be .obtained the money to in ■ veat'in; NewHfork bity land and in bank and other stocks. But at the same ... titqe.be was debauching and otindlinglndian tribes in the West, le was corrupting New York city >fticials to grant him land. This and was a part of the large .area ;hat New York city then municipally >wned. Its value then was not great. At present it is worth hun- Ireds of millions of dollars. Astor's mmediate descendants continued the process. They bribed the common councils and Legislatures, evaded taxation and reaped millions in rent aot only from business buildings, but from vile tenements unfit for human habitation. Less than a cerftufy ifter John Jacob Astor was directing i continuing campaign of debauching, swindling, bribing and murder, his descendants have chains of regal pal aces, and sit high and mighty as haughty aristocrats, far superior to the common mass. William Waldorf Astor, has shown his contempt for the country from which his wealth comes by renouncing American citi zenship and becoming a British sub ject. We may learn from the history of the Astor family that the cussedness of the present day, as practiced by the special interests, are simply a repetition of history and, if not checked will finally result in a titled aristocracy, with a King at the head, and I am not certain but one good high-minded King would be prefer able to the dozen or more petty kings who arc dictating the policies of our government and placing sala ries on the necessities of life by con trolling the means of production and distribution. The American people are certainly models of patience. J. C. Co 9. ■ REPRESENTATIVE OLCOTT, of New York, has a neighbor who has two children, a boy and a girl. This same neighbor recently adopted a little girl. The sister and the brother looked the adopted sister over carefully and made some disparaging remarks about their superiority. " Well," sniffed the little adopted girl, " your papa and mamma had to take you but they choosed me." ARE you a candidate? "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." WHICH SHALL WE DROWN? Adapted fmm Mount Vernon Hcraid We have a fine basketfull of legisla tive kittens —seven of them, if you please. They are a fine lot, but we are going to be allowed to keep only two of the litter—the question is, which ones shall we drown? One of them shows Angora tenden cies, with nice long silky fur, is kind and gentle, does not scratch, and is without a single bad habit. Another shows signs of genius, is well nourished, promises to be a good mouser, keeps its corner clean, and while a general favorite in the nest mews a good deal as if it had a pre monition of a watery grave. Another is a puny kitten, seems to be in astrange garret and side-track ing to escape Hying boot-jacks and only one eye open. Another is such a playful kitten, that despite the fact that its fur is rough, it is quite a favorite with the boys. Hut it moves backward as ea sily as forward and you can never tell whether it is going or coming. Hut there are bets it will not be drowned. There is a yellow k'tten but he is sure of the overwhelming Hood with a stone at his neck. There is one of the litter all the family seem to favor. Already it is wearing a ribtton around its neck, i drinks cream front the saucer, and while it never mews nor never shows a sign of any marked characteristic it may develop, it is growing strong er every day, and while it may not live under a favored woodshed, the family have determined on saving it. The remaining kitten is neat and clean, well marked, has l)Oih eyes! open, mews very little, is inclined to travel sidewise, and shows signs of j making a good hunter. Which ones are you going to drown on September 13th ? Hurrah for Roosevelt and foindexter! Can any one read the ex-.President's great speech, at Denver, on Conser vation and Hurrah for Roosevelt and either Wilson, Hurke, Ashton or Humphries in the same breath? Can any unprejudiced man, or any man not swayed by personal interest, read Roosevelt's Conservation speech and vote for men who call all who advocate the "policies" outlined therein, demagouges? Replying to a so-called argument, to-wit, " that national conservation is in the interest of the East," how i can Eastern' people be benefited by the conservation of Western water power sites, unless they bring their capital here, and utilize the power ? Can they use it and remain two thousand miles away ? How can Eastern people .lease and mine the coal, unless they come to the mine, or at least employ men who will do so ? Will not our people get the first and most immediate benefit ? Under what.obligation will Uncle Sam be to pay for guarding our for ests, if the State has the ownership and control ? Will the regular soldiers be utilized to protect Washington people from destructive forest fires if the State owns and controls the reserves ? Read 'and re-read 'that great speech; remember that the whole world is,now reading and applauding it,'fend also remember that Burkites and Wilsonites and Ashtoriites and Humphreyites and inwardly cursing the man who made it. * * DANIKL GABY. » > What ■■ Editor Mora*. A country editor, who was not sup posed to be rich, built himself a mod est cottage, says the N. Y. Journal. The neighbors were all interested and naturally made inquiries as to how the building was progressing. The editor tired of being asked whether the plastering was yet dry, whether he expected'to move in this week and so on. As he expressed it he could not appear on the street without somebody asking " How is the house getting along?" One day he was quite out of pa tience, and just then a subscriber asked: " Well, Mr. Barnes, 'have you moved into your new house yet?" "We began this morning,'' an swered the editor, "we carried oyer a chair and a salt-cellar and left the dog*in the yard." Well, well," said the subscriber, "you must be glad to have your mov ing so nearly through.'' HCMOB saves many a situation, says the Kansas City Journal r as a small Smith Center boy, who is about all his parents can manage, can testify. The youngster had done something for which his mother de termined to punish him. The lad' promptly hied himself under the poreh out of his mother's reach and remained there. His father came home in the evening and was told the status of affairs. He waxed wroth and made up his mind to sec that the boy got his licking, and promptly shedding his coat, crawled under the porch after the young hopeful. The lad saw his dad coming and sang out: " Pa, is she after you, too?" You can just bet that pa didn't use the strap that evening. Dried Flies (or Chickens. New York World. The Ward line steamship Merida brought to New York this week the strangest item of cargo that the pur ser had ever had upon a manifest. It was a consignment of thirty-eight five-foot bags of dried flies. The flies, many of which are now ground into powder, were shipped by A. G. Vimbert, of Santa Cruz, to Schroeder A Bros., Hamburg. The flies are used in Germany as chicken food. OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 9, 1910. This is certainly a new use for walnuts and would seem a rather ex pensive food for bulla, .The consul does not state whether the nuts are cracked or not, or whether the whole nut or only the kernel is used for bull food. It would rather seem that someone has been furnishing our worthy consul with a plentiful amount of misinformation, yet the stopy may possibly lie true, for wal nuts are certainly a very nutritive form of food. If one wants to have a green vege table retain its color while cooking, keep it uncovered during the process. The usual proportion of liquid in a French dressing is half as much vinegar as oil. A few minced dates added, to the fudge as it comes from the stove is a a new wrinkle. When a cake or pudding runs over in the oven sprinkle salt on it at once and the unpleasant burned odor will disappear. A fish that is to be broiled will be greatly improved in flavor if, for an hour before cooking, it is placed in a dish containing a little olive oil or melted butter. The Goose Girl By Harold MacGrath * •*— Better than "Graustark" or "Truxton King" I IT HRENSTEIN is a mythical land but Harold MacGrath has breathed life into this feaggj? story of love, adventure and romance. The Goose Girl, from tending her flock, is "" plunged into a whirlwind of plots against monarchs and monarchies. Carmichael, the dashing young American Consul, falls in love, and many are the f4Mnp*fratl4?ng that result You will fall in love with The Goose Girl yourself. The Best Romance We Have Ever Given You Begins in this IN umber of the WASHINGTON STANDARD New Uae (or WtlnaU- Town and Couutry Journal Consul-General Arnold Shanklin reports from the City of Mexico that many Spanish ships come to Mexiuan ports bringing in loads of walnuts (Juglans regia or "English" wal nuts) from Bilbao and Santander. The nuts are sent via Mexico City to ranches and used exclusively for feed ing fine fighting bulls. The largest buyer is the Mexico City Bull Ring Association, which keeps 40 to 50 bulls. Trifle for Amateur Cook*. The next time chicken soup is made try adding a little grated cheese just before serving. Seeded raisins cut in half make a pleasant addition to the apple and nut salad. An Ironing Hint, Here is a hint for those who wish their ironing well done, but who have little strength with which to do it. Take down the every day cloth ing, as much as you can do, while still slightly damp. Fold and pack into the basket for ironing. Never crumple anything into the basket, but always fold, as this avoids crin kles ihat it takes time to iron out. By doing this way you save handling clothes twice and save time and strength. Fold sheets carefully when entirely dry and don't iron them at all; dish towels and knitted underwear ditto. Now I see many noses go up at this way of doing, but your husband and children need your smooth temper worse than they need smooth sheets and dish cloths, and an overworked woman can hard ly be sweet and calm. '' The Plowman Plod* Hi* Weary Way." To turn a single acre of ground with a twelve-inch plow requires eight and one-Tourth miles of heavy' furro-v travel. In plowing one square mile of land, the solitary plowman and his horses must walk 5,280 ujiles. It would be easier (and the distance is less) to walk around the earth at the equator (if there were no ocean) than to follow a plow turn ing a prairie of fi vc square miles. To equal national tale of plowing—the work of myriads of teams, each using force sufficient to move seven tons over a good stone road —it would take an army of 4,550 plow men, to travel -as far as from the earth to the moon and back again. For the world's yearly labor of this kind, it would send about 80,000 men on that same half-miilion-mile journey. Clear Wiodow*. During the summer months the windows become dusty and look very ugly. To remedy this they should first of all be thoroughly cleaned and rubbed with pure glycerine. Poiish lightly with a clean dry .cloth and the windows will keep bright for weeks. FRANCKB M. Bjork man's descrip tion in Collier's of Aug. 20tb, of " Women's Political Methods" in the four Stales where amendments to the State Constitutions are pending is a valuable contribution to suffrage literature. After telling of the ef forts in years past to obtain the bal lot for women in Oregon, she says: "In all these bitterly opposed cam paigns the guiding spirit has been the same—a woman, grim, implaca ble, strong, and of powerful mental ity. For forty years Mrs. Abigail Scott Duniway has battled for her sex. Practically every improvement in the status of women'in Oregon is due to her influence. She has roused and inspired the women of the State, and infused into them a splendid spirit of loyalty to their sex. To-day she stands at the head of an organi zation numbering 40,000 members." THREE hundred and sixty-four candi dates have filed for the State Senate and Hous? of Representatives. These are dividetf as follows: Senate, eighty-four; House, two hundred and eighty. Divided according to par ties, they stand: —Republican two hundred and sixty-eight; Democratic, eighty-eight; Socialist, eight. ON Tuesday, Augest 23d, Anacor tes voted "wet" by a majority of fifty-four out of a total vote of seven hundred and sixty, thus retaining its saloons. On the same date, Orting in Pierce County, and near which is located the Soldiecs' Home, voted " dry" the vote standing one hundred and thirty-two "dry" and one hun dred "wet." TEMPERANCE orators may be mis taken as to fact and opinion, but re turns to United States revenue col lectors can't lie. In the prohibition States of Alabama and Mississippi, sales of intoxicating liquor last month, as shown by the revenue of fice. were twice as large as in the corresponding month of 190' J. Ore gonian. f iVELVET^^^RAGsT F (INDIVIDUAL OPINION) S S BY LIE F. VERNON S The reason some men never get out of debt is because they are kept so busy getting in. Some women mistake a moving picture show-house for a house of neighborhood scandal and gossip. If women spend money as fast as they talk, it is small wonder that they are generally in need of the stuff that makes the mare go. " How oft the means to do ill deeds make ill deeds done," quoted a St. Ixjuis lawyer, in pleading for a young woman charged with theft. Starfish: " I find it harder and harder to live within my means." Klam: " That ought to be easy enough. What I'm trying to do is to live within th»» means my wife is endeavoring to make the public be lieve we have." Population of a town is no test of merit. I have lived in some towns from necessity and others from choice. A man must go where work is. and it is only when he has acquired comp etence that he is free to please him self with the character of his sur roundings. The Seattle electric street-ear man agement will not allow fire inspec tors, under City Electrician Howard Joslyn. in Seattle to ride free on the street cars unless they are in uni form. This is the right idea. Let the Inspectors wear their uniforms: that's what they are paid for. Conrad Hoska, the undertaker of Ta cama, who buried thousands, was him self cremated in the new Tacoma crem atory.—Taruma Time*. Certainly. Mr. Hoska was a man with genuine blown -in - the - bottle horse-sense when it came to sanitary facts, and the health of the public. Catch the idea? Cremation is the only proper thing for the dead. It is reported O. M. Moore, former editor of the White Hirer Journal, of Kent, now lives on a farm in Maine, where to harness his horses he has a mechanical system much like that used by fire departments—pull a string and down comes the harness on the animal's, all hitched, ready for driving. Must be coming easy for Moore back nil Maine. He did not have strength enough while in Hoquiam to pull an imaginary "string" of newspaper popularity, let alOne " lift" a good sized chunk of business —in the advertising line. P. B. Murray, proprietor of a Se attle meat market, 94 PKte street, pleaded guilty to using sodium sul phite, better known as "freezum," and was fined SSO and costs, by act ing Police Judge F. H. Egan. The J'.-I. says: " Murray told the court that he had never been arrested be-' fore for using the preservative, and asked the court to be lenient." But it is not reported that Murray told the court how many times he had used the preservative without being arrested. Murray does not have to incriminate himself, you know. * * * Says the P.-1, of a recent date, in an editorial headed, " A woman With Grit": Miss Anna C. Wilson, trustee of the Union Printers' Home in Colorado Springs, has lannched a plan to raise an endowment fund of $1,000,000 for the home. It is a big undertaking, but Miss Wilson, backed by the sympathy and support of the International Typograph ical Union, is confident of success, so confident, indeed, that failure in her case seems to be extremely remote. Why may not Miss Anna C. Wilson work as hard in procuring play grounds for the children, helping tired mothers, resign from the trus teeship of the Printers' Home at Colorado Springs, Col., let the men officials conduct that institution, and be flseful among her own sex. Why not? * # * Old-Time Memories. The "silk tassels on the corn," " When the Corn is Waving, Annie Dear," the pretty song of years ago, but which is seldom heard nowadays, with its refrain: "When the corn is waving, Annie dear, # O, meet me by the stile; I long to hear your gentle voice, And greet your winning smile," the "corn-stock fiddle," the men folk on the farm making corn-cob pipes; small tool haudle, and so on; the wood-box, in the kitchen, papered o'er with figured wall-paper, and dec orated here and there*with pictures (steel engravings), taken from Go deft'* Latly'g Book, of those days, was filled each evening with corn cobs — red and white ones —the husking bee; the red ear of corn, the girl, the chase and the resounding kiss, with merry peals of youth's finest health giving, and invigorating tonic — laughter; the gay rollicking strains of the joyous quadrille, and the swift movement of twinkling, dancing feet, until "sun-up, in the morning." then the "Taking Nellie home." Say, don't you chuckle right now when you recall those happy delight ful ' good old days ?" Of course you do. You cannot help it. These old, entrancing, seductive memories of days down on the farm,, where the paw-paws grew, and the morning glories crept o'er yard and fence, were vividly recalled through the mist of bygone years by reading the following news item in the Seat tle J'.-1., issue of August 26, 1910: "Dayton, Aug. 25. —Columbia county will produce a bumper-corn crop this year. It is likely this county will export considerable corn this winter for the first time on rec ord." WHOLE NUMBER 2,023.
