If -we are to have party politics in muni cipal etcottons, 'then Jet us have It wish the fullest possible Individual liberty of choice and Independence iwlthln the party tinea. The Mpr-lmery" system of selecting delegates to refcecint tbe party at con veni'JkMis wait doubtless designed to pre vent Jobbery and unfair manipulation of the conventions in the interest of certain candidates, or the (selection of delegates fuvomfcle to them. Like many other plausible theories In politics or political economics, it. Is a theory tSiat will not pan out' on practical or experimental deirtonetiraUon. The very .abuses which the primary was)lntendel to correct are In creased and -made iworso by Its operation. It Is not necessary to particularize about this, She rank and file of the party have again and again tiad occasion to com plain of the advantage taken by unscru pulous politicians and bosses to foist upon the voter, under the coercion of party fealty, Improper and unpopular candi date) at both city and county elections. The old New England town meeting to the nearest approach to an actually popular and republican form of govern .mcnt that has been Invented. In ttiese meetings every dclien has his vote and , oin have tils voice If be so desires. Every thing Is done openVy and above board, and while there are politics In these meetings, and muEit be, unleas all organization and syettem are abandoned, nd the partici pants uegraoea inio a tienvoraiisea ana confused mob without leaders or definite petioles, yet every man feels wiheo he en ters such a meeting 'that (he is the equal of any man there. He has a ritfOvt to be heard upon'wny proposed aotlon, and can express) openly and for ttie benefit of all present (h assent or diuent to any meas ure or candidate, with tils reasons there for. In this way the senMmonts of the party can he taken In advancs of the Irrevocable action of the meeting or con-; ventlon, and the policies or complexion 1 of he ticket armnged to emit the largest possible number. No man can say he was not consulted, and, If he voluntarily participates in the meeting, he Is In honor bound to stand by its results on the prin ciple of majority representation. With a primary, (however, where there are a Urge number of delegates to be selected, the ordinary party man, engnctwd as he Is In the affairs of his private business, has (had no tlms or opportunity to die cum or hear discussed the merits of pros pective candidates. He Is obliged to go to the polls and vote wlitlhout the benefit of previous deliberation. Thus a large number of scattering and useless votes are deposited, and when the voter awakes next morning, he finds Ulsat a list of dele gates have been selected In 'which he has no representation, but whose success has been secured by the slickest kind ot political manpulatlon and dark-lantern system, ot whldh (he had no inkling, and which ha and Wis fellow In Dheir dlt-or-ganlsed condition could not have defeated, even If they had received warning In time to attempt It. These tings wUl be formed and have their existence In every party, and their nefarious methods are principally directed to obtaining control of the convention primaries knowing full well that after their out and dried plans have been ex ecuted In the convention, the party lavh will be sufficiently effectual to prevent any considerable bolting at Wis election. The thing to do is to reduce the machin ations of these itirtdasters to the smallest unlnlmun by requiring them to carry on heh" operation In the full llgMt of publle scrutiny at a mass meeting. Another ad' vantage In the tnuas meeting plan of se tectlng delegates Is that It give every gjod party man a chance to warn these bosses that -lie will not consider hlmselt bound at the poll tf their unfair and unscrupulous methods ara carried to th last extremity, and neither Is he to bound, provided timely and unequivocal notice of his objections be given. Tlie primary system has, of course, be' com Ingrafted a a part of Oregon's election maJlainery, and cannot be dis regarded without jeopardising the legal s:tua of any party ticket proposed for election, but there I nothing In the law to prevent any political organisation from meeting In advance of the primary, for the purpose of selecting a list ot delegates (arM Instructing them for particular can dlda'tes at In conventi-Mi, too. if thought proper), and then ratifying ulie selection so madu at the primaries when Ihey come off. Oood reason exists for b. J'evlnj thut this plan could be tried to advantage ok the coming detegate primary, to be held In "fy'M city next Thursday, and it Is pug glutei that the prett-rt of the MVKin- ley and League Club call a joint and in. formal session of these bodies, at the court house, Wednesday evening, and that a! ether Republic ins qwtlifled to vote at the December elections be Invited to he prcuent and participate in the selection ot delegate to be voted for at Thursday's prlrrmry. . - W-j Crave btn inked who. In th As-I uv4ui oviiiwu, i 'y elected governor j of JEfwIesCppI today. Though generally evur.se to (forecejMtlng anything so un curtain aa t"io resu'.'t ef an ejection, we be.'ieve the next governor of M sa'sjlppl win be a Democrat. Tie wcrf c5!p iiar btfn decreased a hurfir'ed .million rounds and tiie price ot the clip haa 'been lc mred from 7 to Z7',j cento. StfC wrm papers assure uii the UuiiifT irefonn la an vxctllcnt thins few tWjs InlduUlry. 'It i one of the few artl cfien. In tsft, Wie onCy prominent one whJldh has had t'iie alleged benefit of a ful 'Democratic 'tariff. Wool was placed on the free lifft. TOer la not a cent ot djty ltJt on It. It Is under a strictly Deinmouiuitlc tariff. . Nearly all the oltier arUdTee fhialt aire from time to time cited In (Ore newpapors 'have some portion ot oho o'jJt prarteoiitve duty loft standing to their benefit. It s'.iou'.d be borne In mind that the Wtaon bill Is not a Democratic tariff. It is simply an emasculated Re publican tariff. It was a botched Repub Uaan tariff iwhen K came from the house. In thie senate Mr. Gorman and his asso ciate added over 600 amendments, most of which were protective amendment, for MarCyland turn many factories to pro tect. In tWs way the Democratic party Is now defending duties which, are two- third at fciaet Republican, only they are unevenly distributed, favoring certain sectional Industrie. But in the case of wool the Democratic party had the coup age of Its convictions and took off the iwihoCe duty, since it was targeSy a North' era product. The wool clip under the McKlnCey law (amounted to 364,000,000 pound. This year it we reduced to 264,000,000. At the aime time the price wu reduced from T to 1714 cents, depend' Ing -upon the grade of wool. Thds Is an Important day not only tor the Eastern Mates, but for the wh jle country, and the results of the elections to be tiwid wl'.hln the next twenty-four hour will be looked fonward to with great lntoreet. Tne following .ates elect .egletatures, which, in turn, elect United dtialte senators: IOWA. KENTUCKY. MARYLAND. MISSISSIPPI. NEW YORK. OHIO. UTAH. ' VIROINIA. The following states hold full elections: IOWA. KANSAS. KENTUCKY. MARYLAND. M'IBISI'PPI. NEW YORK. MASSACHUSETTS. NEW JERSEY. NEBRASKA. fENN'SLYVANIA. VIRGINIA. Compete arrangements have been made by the Astorlan for receiving returns from all these state as soon as they are made known. - The results wl.l be bul letined In front of the office on our an nouncement board, pCaclng the people of 'this ctty In possession of the news wlthiln five minutes of the time It to known in the CocaUtle 'where the eCC' tlons are being head. The San Francisco Examiner poke triiJJ fun at Republicans for speaking at one time of the Gorman tariff as a better protective tauiiff than the Wliaon bill, and ait another as a free trade measure. Yet the Gorman tan-lff Is Just what the Republican describe it to be. It pro tect one American Industry and falls to protect another. So far a wool is con cerned, it Li as mucth a free trade meas ure as If It did not protect the Iron and steel Industry. The Gorman tariff can be tulid to have no natural or consistent polilcy. It is neither protective In the propor acm-e of the word, nor 1 It a "for revenue on'.y" tariff. If it were pro tective It wouOd retain duties on wool: tf it were a revenue tariff It would etill piuce duties on wool a a means of ob taining revenue. The Gorman tariff was the result of a party conaldaratlon of ex pediency. Wooi was put on the free list 'beovuuae there was no wool organisa tion stirong enougiii to save It, Tiie mamu fuotures of wool were retained In the dutiable list because It rona not consid ered expedient to leave them unprotected. That was about the general style ot trtake-up In the "Gorman tariff." A more efficient system, coupled with Ohe fact that a body the Oregon pilot r better posted In their business than Uhnir rival on the Washington side ot the river, U the true reason why our own men have scored some signal vic tories lateCy, The competition tthouid be welcomed by H ishlpplng men, as it ha hUd the effect of stirring up the bar serv ice very thoroughly. W oaah er conditions and the financial oondltton alike make this the most cheer ful approach to winter that Astoria has ever experienced. Wattis the matter with our railroad contractors anyway. And tK. the road question won't keep down. A GREAT PARK NEGLECTED. (Jersey City Evening Journal.) Th tnnptrtrtienvlent of the great Yellow stone NkitkKwt park complains.

Two French) officer were standing at Fort Vlctrhie, on the edge of the Sahara desert. , "I'X waer fifty napoleons," said one ot them, "that no European ever goes from were to Foilt Sit. Denis aTonte and reaches there alive!"- "Done!" eaid a quiet voice behind bin. The speakor lookt.l around with a start, ankl eanv that a new pemeonage had sud denly come upon thle Boon e--a smal l, thin, stvatijhy FrenchinVcn tin civilian drests. "You muat not think of It," my dear sir," cried the young lieutenant, who had offered Ithe wager. "Perhaps It may not turn out to be such terrlb'.e (business after V' said the little man. "I'm going rttir&lghlt to the colonel and aJk (Ms permleslon to make the at teimpit, and I have neat the least doubt that I d!ll get it." And he did get it, sure enough, though It iwas not without a oevere twinge of comeelemee that Co".l Lagiunge gave Ms eancekm. RaiAi as he was, however, the bold ad venturer had a method hi his madness, for the Aral thing he did wais to asmirne an Arab dress, knowing' that however uscf.ess Budh a (disguise mlgAit prove at close quarters, yet (If thiey saiw from a distance a solitary man In native garb they might not think It worth while to ride after him, as they would certainly do 'after a European. When the hour for tairtlng came, not merely the odd cottonet, but every other officer who wais not actually on duty, crowded to tihfe gate off he little fortress to iwirtnees the departure of their adven turous guest. "Can I carry any message for you to Font St. Denis, Colonel 7" asked the tatter, turning to Col. Lagrange as coolly a If he were only setting out for a picnic Instead of running a risk in which the dhances were 90 to 1 of his being kiKed. "Weil, alnce you win go," rejoined the veteran, teugtolng in spite of himself, "you might give this paper to the com mandant, and I only hope youll survive to deliver It." Thiere Is no mare grim or dreary ispecta- f.e upon the face of the earth, except pecC'Jaips the kiTAlred waste of central!

But It 1 only Uhlat fatal, murage of the desert whlidh modka the weary eye of the lost (wanderer, only to aUld ai keener agony to the bitterness of his despair. To itlhe Wave Frenchman, however, thlle vOslonairy splendor and 'thlls weird, ever- la.tlng deacCatlon were alike hackneyed spectacles, and forward he went without even troubling Dijmseilt to look at them. Ten .mile of the twenty had already been accomplished, (then twelve, fourteen, fifteen. iHe had now adMeived three' fouhtlhla of his perilous journey, and at length, imounting the crest of one of the ClJtig, wavellke sand ri'dge. he descried far in tlhie distance (the low, white waJCs of Fort St. Demls, iwlth It gay tricolor flair of France waving Jauntily over It, Cut &t the same moment he caught sight of oomeith'lnv eise wlhtcfo was by no means so saitMtajcitory-a distant group of white iiraintften and glittering spear points and Arab horses coming straight down upon hilm. The fnt was that the French had so often employed nal Ivo , m'sengers that every man, even if he Cooked like an Arab, wa now an object of suspicion to those (dtesert witures. And 'Wihan they n eared our hero and caw that he quietly continued on bis way without taking any notice of them what ever, they began to think that they must be iwrong In sniapeotlng him, naturaflly supposing that his showing wo little fear of them was a proof that he could have no reason to be afraid. As the six if.ll horsemen dlosPd around him, bn&nd!lh!nr their guns and spears, but ptlll In doubt whether to attack him or not, the dlj?u!evd Frenchman (drew hlmncilf up defiantly.

'What 'mean you?" asked the nearest horaeman In a tone of aimaiement, Which iwas ecTtaln?w not without reaioon. 'What caia you thds!" retorted the ac cuser with stern empMasls.
