CORRESPONDENCE. J. be opinions of correspondents are tneir owa. o communication appear Ing in this colnrnn necessarily voices the belief 01 the paper itselt. suitor Astorlan: you ought not to-'b?fl so nam on us poor chaps that try' to eniignten the world by effusions to the Astorlan on the subject of roads. -I want to say for mysolf that. I have no aunts, sisters, or cousins, on the coast, and I uon i neea 10 send my rrlends a copy of the Astorlan, for they all read It. As for writing' "pro bono publico", I am part of the public and am Interested In my own welfare; a fat body has healthy members, usually. You say that those most vitally Interested should "Git up and sit." There Is generally the most vitality around the heart, except in cases where there is heart failure. Astoria be lng about the heart of the county should be where: to locli for the ones most vi tally Interested. -Astoria is the vlullus, If there Is to be any life in the public body uie germ must be there. The Astoiians suggestions about how to get roads are all good, but the first thing needed is the disposition to make roads. If a man is disposed to be quiet a drink of whisky makes him stupid, but if he is inclined to be .noisy, you can't drown his ,. solce by pouring whisky down his throat. So I say, first want to moke roads, then Jake a little extra stimulus. Clatsop county has been here a long time al ready, and will continue to be here in the future, and if a system of roads is laid out and the energies- of the people turned to making tbem good, the county will be a live place from which railroads could not be shut off. Without roads It will lie dormant in the future as in the past, nnd Its few people will be praying for a railroad to come, so that some live blood from some live place can flow in warm to them. , ... There was more work done on roads this last year than most people are aware of. ir any one takes the trouble to in quire he will find that a whole lot was done, and when we consider tHe plan un der which it was done, the result Is en couraging. Better laws would make U possible for all to pull together, and not work on this "Pull ParP I pulled last,' plan. . ,. Thero are other things more interest ing to some of your readers than roads; the latest prize- fight, for instance, but I know for a fact that very many of your readers are more Interested in the roud question than any other one thing. That . is all the excuse I have for asking for space In your paper. . D. P. STAFFORD. RESPONSIBILITY FOR FIRES. Caitalcsa Occujvnts Of tenor' to 'Blame Than Incompetent Builders. ; If Mr. Cornelius Vanderbllt, . write; Barr Ferree in the current, number of .the Engineering' Magazine, has read all the' comments, sermons, discourses,' sug gestlons, mountains of advice, reams of wisdom, and worlds of foolishness whle.i hnve been poured forth on himself and a long-suffering public anent the burnlni: of his cottage at Newport, he not only now knows more about fires In dwellings than any other person living, but doubt less wishes fervently that he did not know s6 much. It is seldom that a firj In a dwelling attracts so wide attention as Mr. Vanderbllt's 'did, yet every duy greater calamatles are happening in all our great cities to people much less aid than he to afford the loss. Whether th flro In Mr. Vanderbllt's cottage actually arose from a defective flue or not, there can be little question but 'that many do mestic fires, and many fires not domestl have their origin in carelessness Ilttln short of criminal. Just at this time th cities or Milwaukee and Brooklyn are suffering from an abnormal number of Area, Wr,Tehouse& , factories, dwellings al mo8 1 every grade of building, have sui- rered lately, and so numerously as to direct the attention of insurance men to them, with the result of a considerable increase in rates. All manner of excusos have been put. forth. Fire fiends, badly equipped fire department. Improper con- ,rhr action have come In for their share of! the blame. Doubtless all are responsible in a measure, yet It seems one of the strangest things in tho world to fasten the responsibility of a number of fires 1 1 any one city upon its Are department, be Its equipment ever so bad or out of dale. A deficient Are department may help th nriousnesa of Hresl bv not rendering proper service or in not" being provided with adequate apparatus, but it can have nothing to do with the number of fires. Neither is It fair to censure the architect i.nd the . builder. Brooklyn's epidemic In a. recent one, though the city is by nu means new. A more satisfactory explan ation, certainly in the Instances of domes tic dwellings. Is tho unutterable earless (.ess with Ore and flame. So long as Vn house does not burn down every Improper use of Are is all right; the moment tha catastrophe occurs, the fault Is looked for everywhere save In the nearest place.' Cities afflicted with numerous tires ha I bettr- issue Inv'WtlulUi jtq .tho people on handling .tliem.J Vllar to health bulletins Issued in times or pestilence, than spend their time In investigating the evil doings of architects and builders, or bewallng tho insufficiency of the fire engines.
