The Old Boys Will Struggle With the
Australian Ballot Question on
Dating from the conqtiest, the Society
of California Pioneers is the oldest society
in the State, and there is no branch of
business enterprise or association, social
or political, in which they are not most
honorably represented. And as matters
pertaining to the society are, to some ex
tent, of interest to the general public, at
tention is called to a proposition now
pending before it.
If there is an organization in which the
spirit of fraternity and good fellowship
should prevail with all the force and in
tensity that those terms imply, surely it
should be with them.
Almost the sole and only dissension, dis
cord or recrimination that has ever pre
vailed among them has been caused by
the annual election of their officers; and
it would seem that anything tending to
lessen or eliminate such causes from their
proceedings would be welcomed by its
The proposition is io adopt so much of
the Australian mode of election as would
result in the elimination from future elec
tions of those political features that have
heretofore in a degree marred the har
mony of the society. That would give
every member who would present a peti
tion signed by thirty members of good
standing the right to have bis name placed
upon the ballot as a candidate for any
office, as such petition should recommend.
It would do away with prearranged nomi
nating committees and destroy the signifi
cance and unfair prestige attaching to the
term -'regular" ticket. It would abolish
the custom of members circulating tickets
upon the streets and the evil potency of
money to influence the election.
The objections of the few opponents
of the Australian system are the
same as those urged by politi
cians against its application to public
affairs, and it is expected with about the
same effect, as the principle ha.s been and
is being adopted by all intelligent commun
ities throughout the country. It has been
adopted by the Mechanics' Institute, the
Olympic Club and other social organiza
tions in San Francisco, and has fully real
ized all that its most ardent advocates have
claimed for it.
The proposition will be debated and de
cided by the society at their monthly meet
ing, May 6, and, no doubt, a full attend
ance will be present.
TICKET AGENTS UNEASY.
They Complain That Brokers
TO CONSIDER RATE - CUTTING.
T. H. Goodman of the Southern
Pacific Calls a Meeting for
The railway passenger ticket agents, or
at least some of them, have been kicking
over the trace* of late, and there is trouDle
all along the line. .For quite a long time
the agents on Market and Montgomery
streets have held together on rates aa
directed by their respective companies
after a meeting at Chicago, at which
Western passenger rate^ were definitely
settled. The Passenger Association made
it clear to all agents that cutting rates
should then cease, and to all intents and
purposes it did stop immediately.
But in view of subsequent developments
it seems that the Western Passenger Asso
ciation rules were only made to be broken.
So the story goes on the street, and it is
for this very reason that an effort is to
be made to whip into line some agents
who, in their zeal for business, found a
way of their own out of the dilemma in
in which they were placed.
With this object in prospect a meeting
has been called for 10:30 a. m. to-morrow
in the Palace Hotel.
Every agent in town received a letter
yesterday from General Passenger Agent
T. H. Goodman of the Southern Pacific
Company asking him to be present at the
meeting. The invitation announced that
matters connected with overland passen
ger traffic from Ban Francisco and vicinity
will be considered at the meeting, and it
urged upon agents the necessity of attend
ing or sending a representative.
The railroad men claim to be at a loss
regarding the nature of the questions to be
disenssed, and little could be learned from
Southern Pacific otticials further than
a statement that purely business matters
would be adjusted. Agents appeared de
sirous of saying nothing about it, though
from two of them it was learned that the
meeting was called for the purpose of stop
ping cutting through brokers.
"Some of the agents have been paving
brokers an excessive commission to allow
them an opportunity of cutting rates and
thus getting the business. This has given
rise to constant irritation and frequent
complaints from offices that were daily
losing business because they refused to
have any dealings through brokers. Means
will be devised on Monday to put a stop to
this brokerage and put every office on an
equal footing to sell tickets on its merits."
Such was the explanation of an agent,
who for business reasons did not wish his
name quoted in connection with the
The Southern Pacific agent said that no
broker could do business through his offi
ces beyond buying at schedule rates a
ticket for himself and signing it in his own
name, in which case the ticket could not
be transferred. He regarded brokers as a
nuisance and the cause of endless trouble
in the different ticket agencies.
"What the Union Pacific and Santa Fe
representatives may be doing I cannot say,
though it certainly disturbs things," was
the vague insinuation that these offices
have been getting a large share of the
It is a foregone conclusion that unless a
radical change be made immediately sev
eral railway companies will raise decided
objections to continuing under association
restrictions regarding passenger rates, and
then enter into an open fight by cutting
rates. In this connection the Santa Fe
and Union Pacific people say they have
lost a certain proportion of overland busi
ness through tne Southern Pacific's Sunset
Limited train, which has been advertised
all over California, and, consequently, they
feel that they must offset the competition
in some tray.
There is not a very wide gap now be
tween association rule's on passenger rates,
and a free fight at reduced prices for over
land tickets may be at hand.
The English Fisheries.
While the numbers of men and boys en
gaged in fishing throughout England and
Wales has remained nearly constant dur
ing the past five years, and the variations
in total weight of fish caught comparing
one year with another have been very
slight, many of the lishing ports have suf
fered vicissitudes. Grimslay retains its
position as chief of them all, and London,
in spite of some falling off in the quantity
of hsh landed, is still second, but Yar
mouth has changed places with its neigh
bor, Lowestoft, and Neyland, instead of
being seventh in rank among fishing ports,
as it was five years ago, is now behind
Scarborough and North Shields.— London
