Thit paper has the largest Circulation on the Columbia rivet. An honett and complete teltgraphic re port givet a nrvmpaper a right and till to the name. The new$ of the world, fresh every morning at your breakfait table, it what you can find in the Astorian. It hold the exclusive teUgraphio franchise, and ilt service is improving daily- There Is an old adage that new brooms sweep clean, and, If this be true, we are glad to see that Astoria has a new street superintendent who seems anxious to do his duty. He could not have a better field for exercising his talents than this city at the pres ent time of year, and we want to make a few suggestions as to the manner in which he might begin his anything but easy, task, In the first place let him not fall in to the error that any portion of the work will wait till some future time, or that he will be able to remedy all the existing evils at a hop, skip, and Jump. We take It that his position like that of every other city official, should be governed by a regular and thorough system, which leaves nothing to chance. His first step should be to make a thorough tour of the city for the purpose of ascertaining, as speedily as possible, what householders are vio lating the following Bection of the city charter: "No person or persons shall permit or or suffer to accumulate, in or upon an yard, lot, place or premises, or upon any street or sidewalk adjacent to or abbuttlng upon any lot, block, place or premises, owned or occupied by him or them, or for which he or they may be agent or agents, within the city llin its, any stagnant or Impure water, ref use vegetables, decayed or decaying substances, garbage or filth of any kind, nor suffer such yard, lot, place or premises to be or remain In such condition as to cause or create a not some or offensive smell or atmosphere, or thereby to be, become or create or cause a publlo nuisance." It will no doubt be said that this not a part of the duty of a street sup erintendent. We maintain that it is and a very important part of his duty at that. One section In the definition of his office reads aa follows: "The superintendent of streets shall act aa assistant to the city surveyor, whenever he can do so without con dieting with his other duties, and shall perform such duties as are now or may be hereafter prescribed by ordinance, He shall see that all ordinances re lating to streets ar strictly enforced, and make complaint to the city at torney of all violations thereof." Wo ara aware that the chief of io- llce Is vested with the authority to re port nuisances, but we are also aware that the chief of police has much other routine work to attend to, that makes it Impossible for him to look after the thing as he should. The street super Intendent should devote a third of his time to finding out and reporting to the council the names of the parties who are every year guilty of Jeopardising the publlo health by their almost crim inal carelessness. The spring weather will soon be here. We will have the summer with us be fore we realise it, and however much we are blessed with naturally For the Next Thirty Days, To meet imperative demands, I will offer at such low prices on install ments, with easy payments, that healthy locality, heaven Itself vrould reek with disease if It was surrounded by tho accumulation of filth and noisome (rarbag-o that has been heaped up around tm during the past winter. Astoria stands today open armed to receive and hold fast any epidemic that compM near and when the warm sun , . . blazes down In the back yards ana ai- ,., , .-on-- .t leyways we win w . . .. fools we have been not to clear away the chance of calamity In time. The city Jail, as was pointed out by Councilman O'Hara on Tuesday night, Is lii a horrible condition. Many of our private residences are worse. Some of the members of the council seem to think that the subject calls for uproar ous merriment. If they don't buckle down to work pretty quickly and set tle this subject for good, they will find where the merriment comes In before they realize It. And finally, let every officer of the municipality whose work takes him on to the streets turn his attention to a remedy at once. There is, we think, a great deal of unnecessary difficulty In understanding the president's attitude towards news paper men. It Is simple enough if ex amined without the obscuration of the theories that should be skimmed from the facts. Recently there has been cultivated by many newspaper men, especially young men In the cities and old men In the country, the Idea that there are un common privileges belonging to their business ; that they are, In effect a tribe set apart with an office; that they were dedicated to special service, and should be regarded as put aside and sanctified to educating the general masses of their fellow beings. Now, without detracting In the least from the newspaper man's responsi bilities, or affirming or disputing tho elevation of his occupation, there ate objections to be taken to the "fad" of Journalism. We, the workers on the press, are the equals of our fellow citi zens who are as talented, educated, well conducted, Industrious, and suc cessful or unsuccessful as ourselves. The journalistic fad first had fast hold i . .. . mu iimo of the country editor. Tho claims of ; which we speak with questioning first originated In the country, and not In the cities. They are rural rather than metropolitan. The favorite form of the fad in the country, and this weakness crops up In our own Btate about the present time, Is that the editor should be con sulted and recognized in the vicinity of the courthouse and the postofP.ce; and the better plan Is that he shall come Into the official circle of the county by becoming postmas'.cr. Here In Clatsop county we are happily free from the possibility of this atliictlon, but only because the democratic jiieela In the district are too distinctly vllo and too far outside the pale for the en dorsement of even their own party. The Idea is deeply Implanted In the mind of the average country ftllUr, nevertheless, that the postofflce Is lils perquisite. There are relations be tween the press and the puotoflico There are ties and tendrils "a com mon lunguagd, literature and relig ion" aa Is said In after dinner sii li es. Editors can claim the postomces with arguments of association, copfnn gulnulty, and reciprocity. This ed itorial distinction, which Is exceptional and unique, the president has not de nounced, but he takes the high ground that, though a democratic editor Is but a little lower than the democratic angels, he Is not called by virtue of his virtues Into the postal department of the administration. In our local columns today we pub llsh a report from Dr. J. A. Fulton, se cured on our own behalf, for the guid ance and benefit of the city council. nothing that we ran say would add any additional weight to this medical statement of the condition of affairs In the city jail. Surely the matter Is one that demands the Immediate atten tion of every sensible man In the com munity. MILLINERY OPENING.
