By today very nearly all' the cannery m.n on the Columbia, River nvlll have , paid off their iflshermeni for their work during the season- just closed. A student of human nature would And a most ab sorbing subject In. analyzing the feelings, desires, and projects fostered by these hardy to.iers when t'hey feel their pockets well lined with gold, and see seven months of Witness ahead of Ihetm. Some few nnd the topmost pinnacle of (happi ness in the prospect of a visit to tneir Old 'Norwegian, Russian, or Flnnlsn homes, and later, arrayed as corof onab.e men at meansv they enjoy the adm.rn,tlom of the old foiks at iho-me, who look on Hans with astonishment and on, the evi dences of his wealth and prosperity with a fee.tng akin to awe. This class of flah vi'mem re immigration recruits, thougn unw.t'tlngly so, and many a cousin or broi'her Amis his way .to the Unltea States lured hither toy the wonderful suc cess of 'his relative In the land of the free. Ticket agents and reprssiiitatlves of steamship lines proilt to a considera ble extent through these home visits, and the men whose thoughts tend hi this di lution are on the whole a most desir able and wort'hy body of citizens. We can forgive their lltt'.a Knowing of pride and display, for it Is a laudable weukmss, rendered excusable by reason of the liard and unremitting toll which has made the exercise of it possible. They aro back in Astoria with the b.glnnlng of '.he year ready for work once more. A second class, and one slightly more numerous, are those who have married and who have bulM up homes among us which nestle In t'hu hills overlooking the canneries, and seem to cling pictur esquely in unexpected places surrounded by lofty trees and heavy green under growth. In these little homes are all (he vldenc.s of rude, but genuine and of- tlmes refined, comfort, Children' abound in all of t'hem and -many can bo.ist ot flower gardens and enclosures prolific with vegetables of every kind. To tluse homes at the end ot the season come this second class of 'fishermen ladon with the Season's spoil which quickly becomes converted into 'household supplies bought In bulk. A new and gaudy dress for the wife, strong clothes for the children, and probably a few "enlarged crayou par- traits, " a new parlor blbk-, and cm Ulna for the sitting room are the 3niy dlssl pattons. The money that Is left goes In to the bank toward a fund' probably oc cumulating for the purchase of a home. The fisherman spends his winter knitting n.ts, entertaining 'his neighbors, and quietly waiting for next year's tussle with the storms and seas to reap a frtsn harvest. He lives a decent life, it a good, provident husband and father, and alto gether an honest citizen. The third class, a very large 0110, em braces 'the waifs and strays of iha busi ness, the hard working, shiftiest, happy-go-lucky men who are mostly good fish ermen- ,but lamentably wak minded. The nd of the season finds t'hem with plentiful supply of cash, and the electric lights and gaudy tinsel of the lower end of the city draw tlkwi Irresistibly Into a whirl of silly dissipation. From It they will emerge next month without money or immediate prospects of getting any Rudely, thrown, out of beer halls and gambling dens whi:re all their earnings have been e:tlen and' cajoled from their pockets, they have to face a "winter ct discontent" indeed. Tin parasites who have helped 'to squeeze them dry know them no longer after tbe process Is ac complished, andi with tvery other avenue of help closed t'hey are forced to iply to cannerymen for provisions to take them through till the next season. Otn easily th.y gat them, and' thereby pile up a heavy debt which it takes nearly the whole of the following yean' w irk to cancel. A dangerous element when In liquor, and at thiise tlmot a prolific s uroe of street disturbances and barroom fights, they are among the most undeilrable set of men that live In the cHy. The only people th y benefit' are a class of gam b'.ers and pot-house sharks whose eilst enc In- Astoria I a shame and disgrace to the city authorities. Patriotism and interest combine to de mand that every sheer of tin plate ne cessary to (American uses shall be made in America, and from 'American, produced materials. No Justifiably reasm can fee J assigned wfiy It should' not be so, nature having possessed us with all the sub stances entering Into Its construction: ami herein wa have the advantage ov-r foreign producers, upon whom, until re cently, we -have bee; altogether d-pend-nt for our supplies. It is estimated that :,d:;.X3 t;xcs -of tin plate are yesrly im- ported by us at Pacific and Eastern ports upon which the customs duty is refunded, as t'hese plates are used In the manufac ture of cans for preserved meats, fish and fruits, together with cases for oils, all for exportation. It would be interesting to know whether these cases are presented to it-he foreign buyer free of charge, to the extent of the rebate duty or not; be cause if not the exporter simply pockets the rebate, which amounts to (1.30 a box on ordinary plates and $1.63 on single cross, less on per cent for government's trouble. In such case, therefore, the re bate profits nobody but t'he exporter, and 'him unfairly, contributing nothing to the revenue of the., country. It was very gratifying yesterday to s;e that the city authorities had at length de cided to glve us a semblance of clean streets. On many of the thoroughfares the dust and accumulation of years had become so caked and compressed tliat it was as solid as tne boards oni which it lay. However, a considerable amount ot hard work has already made a great dif ference Int theiappearanee of things, ana we firmly believe that nl.-ve-tem'.hs of the people who were out oa the streets yes terday felt more cheerful and good na tured on account of the change The work should be continued until all ot the superficial evils at least have be.n re moved. REFORMS IN RAILROAD MANAGE MENT. Henry Clews says In Public Opinion: Railroads, If 'honi.stlyi and' prudently managed, are capable of conferring the greatest possible commercial and social benefits upon- the community and upon the, human race, and they should there fore be managed In the Interest of the whole people, but not by the government. The quadrennial interruption of politics, and the numerous rivalries and Jealousies Inseparably connected therewith, would, In- my opinion, play havoc with all the economic and Industrial advantages though they are many capable of being der.ved from a grand central and bureau cratic system of government manag-.mei.it. I think a protective system of commit tees, chosen -by the stock'hoiders of every railroad, to Investigate the manag ment and have its accounts audited periodically by trustworthy experts upon a plan that would exclude the possibility of collusion, the reports of these commltte.s to be submitted to a central association, also chosen by said stockholders, at reasonable Intervals.-i-would reform, and. lni time. thoroughly eradicate, most of -th.- evils now complained of, and make the rail roads the most potent Instruments in developing our material prosperity, through our unlimited resources. The period succeeding the last panic 'has exposed more weak spots in railroad management, probably, than any former period. The management has In- too many Instances been dlrect.d toward sustaining the market value of the securities, In stead of building up the Intrinsic value of the property. Borrowing money, at ths expense of the property, to pay untamed dividends has played an important role in the operation of creating fictitious valuts, which ihave often acted like a boomerang and demoralized the specu lative market. This system Is entirely vicious, and will have no place In the reformed managem nt proposed, by which t'he public in general will have uniple means of discovering the true value or every railroad property. Th veil ut secrecy which lias hitherto conaled so many rotten schemes, so fruitful of bank ruptcies, defalcations and panics, will be torn away, and the financial status of evury property laid bare to public view and open inspection. Of course, It will require some liglsia tlon to accomplish Jill Mils, and it must be of a more comprehensive character, and more popular and ben-Jit lent In Its outcome than the Inter-State Commerce law, The clause against pooling In that aot must be repealed, and perhaps It may be w.ce-s-sary to recast the whole measure I do 'not mean to disparage the legis lators In whose brains the law originated, for I recognize the Impossibility ttf fore s.elng all the necessities that may arise in human concerns; but several years' bitter experience of the law In question has left no room for doubt of its inade quacy. Secrecy seems to be largoly at the bot torn of bad management. If our national legislators, Instead of attempting legisla tion designed to regulate' rates and Inter nal management, as exemplified in some of the abortive provisions of the Inter Slate Commerce Act, would profit by th-. experience of JtlassachusKts, they would substitute for the Inter-Slaie Commerce Law, a gem ral enactment requiring, un der heavy penalties, the utmost publicity in official reports of railroad affairs. The history of the Massachusetts Rillroau Commission, which was first originated In 18119, shows what Intelligent public opin ion, properly directed, can do In reform ing the abuses of corporations. It was at first an experiment on the part of diaries Fraincis Ail una and a few other men of advanoej thought and largo exp. Hence. Its powers were grudually enlarg.'d with out becoming oppressive, and It has done more, perhaps, to soive the problem of so operating railroads as to meet the wants ot the various Industries and com nwrcial Inter at of the state, while con serving the best Interests o fths sio.-k holders and Investors, than any other scheme that has been tried. On; railroad magnate, C. T. Hunting ton, thinks that consolidation Is the rem edy, carrying this idea so far, in fact, as to favor making all the railroads one great trust, or not more than three con solidations In all at the very outside; he belltvi s that one would be best. Such a trust as he Imagines would undoubtedly greatly cheapen the cost to both produc ers and consumers, as he argues; but It would require Ironclad legislation, strictly administered, to regulate a trust of sue unprecedented nvwnltud and potency as Mr. Huntington approves. It seems evi dent to me that either this plain of Mr. Huntington's or government owiw-rshlp wou'.d destroy competition; this would be against public policy, and would eventu- 11 y destroy healthy speculation- and In vestment, first bringing these operations to a gen -ral condition of stagnation. Al other business. In my opinion, would MifrH- tiv eynijUiiy. Heal Estate ffieD, Backers and Business lYIen Of Astoria Generally. 1 A POINTER!
