ASTORIA'S ROOM. What the town of Astorlu seems to need Is a live man, with plenty of brains and good Judgment, to look after new manufacturing and business con cerns for tU Such a man could be em ployed at a reasonable salary, and would ixvy for himself a great many times over. Ho would collect and collnte business facts and statistics for the town that would be simply as tounding. He would write letters to for eign business and manufacturing peo ple that would Interest, Inform and con vince them letters that would count be yond all calculation In the upbuilding of the wholo community. There is reason to fear that too much Importance has been attached to tho mere effect of a railroad connection. Many think a railroad all that Is needed to start the town. There never was a greater mistake. A railroad has now become essential to the future growth of tho town, but tho railroad, won't malto the town It will simply aid In ma,klng It. People must be Induced to come to tho town that Is to say, the right sort of people people with money, with bruins and with energy. Tho real problem confronting tho town Is. how can such people be brought to It. Tho fact Is, the kind of "railroad boom" so much hoped for by some cltl xens would actually deter the right kind of people from coming to Astoria. Let any man go down through Kanws and see the ruin and decay, the absolutely sinful waste of money and enterprise, that marks the trail of the railroads through that forlorn slate, and the thing he will wish for most of all for Astoria Is that the calamity of a rail road boom may be avoided. No; the town diM-sn't wunt that hind of pros perity, and, fortunately, there Is nthe least dnnger that she will have It; and right here it may be stilil that j unless steps si taken to Acquaint thej Hslht people of th risht section wlthj the surpowlnfc" advantages of Astoria, the railroad will make no pcrceptlbla difference In lown none whatever. Tim qu.io.o fr l;".rr,c-:"!c ccr.H-ior-Hilou Fhi-uM he: How ran the town's Intrinsic advantages be best set forth? It is obvious to all who are acquaint ed with Astoria that It has every nat ural advantage that favors Portland and the cities on the Sound mid many additional advantages beside that these towns can never have. Now, what has made these cities thrive and grow, while Astoria, the much older and more desirable place, has remained but a speck on the map, a mere way-station on the line of Portland's enormous com merce? The only explanation possible Is that the cities named have had the benefit of a Judicious and reliable course of advertising, which has been the means of attracting a good class of Im migration and capital. Portland la today one of the sub stantial cities of the United States, and this proves the existence of busi ness of one kind or another In this seo tlon of sufficient volume to support a large city. With the encouragement of Portland's example and the reflection that with the right kind of energy and activity on the part of Astoria, It would today be the city, and Portland the specie on the map; and, further, that It Is not yet, by any means, too late to inverse the present relations of the two places; let the citizens of Astoria get to gether and devise some plan to put their town before the world. Here Is to be found one of the best-located sea ports on the globe a seaport with pecu liar advantages to be found In conjunc tion with no other seaport In the world. Why not advertise that fact, so thut others beside the people who live here may know it? Mr. B. L. Dwyer has said that In all his travels and study of tho locative and geographical advantages of the towns and cities of tho United States, he has found no place that equals As toria In certain Important particular With the entrance of the railroad now secured, there are many reasons why the present time Is most opportune to begin some systematic and persistent plan for setting forth Astoria's advant ages. There is about to bo a favorable reaction of business. Indeed, business men say they aro already feeling the effects of the revival. During the period of temporary shut-down, manufacturer and business men have done much thinking and quiet Investigating, and when business Is generally resumed It will be found that radically different methods are to prevail. The margin on all sorts of business is bound to be smaller. In many cases these desired ends can only be attained by a change of location, with reference to natural Instead of artificial advantages. If some energetic, young business man who has lived in Astoria long enough to be thoroughly acquainted with the advantages and possibilities of the place, and a man having sufficient Interests and investments to make it an object to him, aside from the salary involved If such a man be found, put in the field and puld and Instructed to give his en lire time and energies to the work af advertising Astoria, more oan be ac coinpllshed In one y?ar than all the boards of trade and social clubs that oould be organized In ten years. There Is really no way to estimate the amount of goKl such a man can do, Let the business men of Astoria take hold of this, or some other method to advertise tho town, before the oppor tunlty for catching some of the Impend Ing business changes, which will In' evltably be made, and possibly within the next twelve months, have parsed, The town may then, Indeed, but not till then, have a boom, and of the only kind to be encouraged by all who hove the real Interests of tho community at heart. The following from the Morning Oro- gonlan Is one of the neatest comments on the political situation we have seen for a long time. It is certainly a mas terly piece of condensation: "The coin cidence of bad times with the accession of the Democratic party to powvr, nnd the continuation of bad times Into tin second year of Democratic ascendency, with no prospect of better till that par ty shall be rejected, together with re membrance of the prosperity of the country during the long ierlod of Re publican rule. Is the greatest of all Re publican campaign arguments." Tho New York Sun says: "Voir oil -r year, and all the time, tho criminal re ports f the city are vastly more fav orable t women then to ir.cn. The law breakers of the female d but few here, In comparison with those of tin ot-lHT sex. After examining the police returns for the first quarter of this year, and comparing them with the re turns of various terms of other years we are atlo to say that there la statls tl'.al rro"f thnt th mnrnllrntlon of women is far superior to that of men."
