These figures show that Russia made the
greatest gain in the matter of residents

Fowler says that these figures do not In

Asiatics (Chinese born in Hongkong, the

it is difficult to determine the true number

The Call does not hold Itself responsible for
the opinions published In this column, but
presents them for whatever value they may

Editor Call: A short time ago there ap
peared in one of our evening papers an
article titled "Scouting in South Africa."
In this article there was quoted from a
little book written by the hero of Mafe
king tho following: "Scouting one day In
Matabeleland I discovered the spoor of
a party of women and boys, and following
it found a leaf. There were no trees nearer
than a village fifteen miles away, whence
the tracks seemed to lead. The leaf
smelled of beer. This signified that it had
been used with others to stop the mouth
of a pot of beer and had blown away."
He goes on to say that the wives of Boer
soldiers are accustomed to carry beer to
their lords and masters and that he soon
fbund the party of Boers in such a state
of Intoxication that he could easily flnd
out what he wanted.
According to this famous scout and hero
the Boer women carried a pot of beer
large enough to intoxicate a party of Boer
soldiers, as he designates them. As a
former resident of this country I wish to
say that there are no leaves in Matabe
land large enough to cover such beer pots,
and although the Dutch and Germans are
supposed to drink beer continually, the
Boers do not use beer and do not know
how to make it. But the point the hero
scout is trying to make is that the Boer
women are brutes and that the Boers
themselves are drunken sots, and when
speaking about lords and masters he tries
to convey the idea that the husbands of
the Boer ladies treat their wives as slaves.
To judge from these extracts of this
book the contents could only be digested
by jingo Englishmen. ¦ Anglomanlacs and
English boys under 10 years of age. When
in the beginning of the war the Boers
went through Bechuanaland to round up
the cattle of the chartered company (the
only source of revenue the company has
with which to pay a dividend on a capital
of £27,000,000) the heroic Baden-Powell, in
stead of defending that property, crawled
like a rat In a hole in Mafeking, thereby
exposing the women and children of that
place to starvation, and only when a su
perior force from two fides arrived did
he dare to show himself. Now he is es
tablished as a hero all over the world by
the versatile English war correspondents,
while to those who know South Africa
and the people of that country Baden-
Powell appears from his book on "Scout
ing" as a contemptible cur and not as a
gentleman, and a brave officer, and as a
coward from his record so far in, this war.

A DISAPPOINTED FAKER
VILE as has been the course of the Examiner
for many a year, it has rarely ever shown its
spite in a meaner way than it did yesterday in
its tlaunts and sneers at Judge Bahrs in commenting
upon his decision in the Fresno rate case. Evidently
the Examiner desired the Judge to give a decision in
favor of the Southern Pacific Company in order that
it might have a chance to use it as a part of the am
munition it intends to employ in the coming cam
piign. The decision, being in favor of the law and
the people, left the Examiner no opportunity to make
political capital out of it, and in a freak of spite the
yellow journal turned upon the Judge. Having no
grounds for attack, it set about inventing them.
Falsehood was substituted for fact, and the Judge,
instead of being commended, was held up for public
By way of making cut a case against the court the
Examiner said: "Judge Bahrs assigned the case to
himself. It should have been heard and decided
within a week. But after holding it for months Judge
Bahrs has found himself, like the Railroad Commis
sion, unable to uphold the company, and has issued
the injunction prayed for by the Attorney General."
The statement that the Judge found himself unable
to uphold the company carries with it the insinuation
that he would have upheld the company had he been
able to do so. and is worth noting as an Illustration
of the Examiner's method of suggesting lies it is
afraid to tell. However, there are a good many lies
it is not afraid to print, and one of them is contained
in the assertion that the case was held by the Judge
for months The case was submitted to Judge Bahrs
on May 31 and was decided on June 27. Thus it
was held not for month?, but for less than one month.
Under the law the Judge had ninety days in which to
give decision, and the decision was given in less than
The charge of the Examiner is, however, more
unjust than appears on the surface. Since the case
was submitted Judge Bahrs has held court in two de
partments, and therefore has had an extra pressure
of business upon him. The case as submitted con
tained upward of seventy-five citations, each of which
had to be examined in the interests of justice, and the
work consequently could not be hurriedly done.
Finally, as an evidence of a desire to give the deci
sion as promptly as Mas commensurate with the care
due to its importance, it is to be noted the Judge ad
vanced it ahead of fifteen other important cases on
the calendar. Here, then, in the record is ample
proofthat Judge Bihrs. so far from trying to hold
the case back, actually did all in his power to hasten
it. and. in fact, did hasten it to such an extent that the
promptness of the decision is one of the features of
the case which most merits public commendation.
In the «cope of the politics of a free country there
must be room for the foulness of foul minds to vent
itself. There must be sewers to carry off the ordure
of the city, and there must be an Examiner to serve
2s a conduit for the ordure of Democratic politics.
Still the sewerf are not left open to the air, nor is it
permitted to any one to spatter the filth of them
upon the public. So it should not be permitted to the
Examiner to vent its dirty politics upon clean men.
What has been done in this mean assault against
Judge Bahrp is a warning of what may be expected
during the whole course of the coming campaign, and
it is therefore well to direct public attention to the
offense at once, so that the community may be on
THE NEW DIPLOMACY.
CHINA has agreed that American Consuls may
communicate directly with provincial Viceroys
in regard to the protection of foreigners, with
the assurance that as long as a Viceroy will see that
tney are not molested foreign troops will not be
landed in his province.
The Viceroy of Shantung has notified foreigners
dwelling inland that he cannot protect them.
There is no question of the wisdom of this arrange
ment to have direct communication, without the
roundabout appeal to the central government. But
while we are present with an armed force in China
to protect Americans and other foreigners there, and
are killing and being killed, taking potluck with pot
shots with the other Christian powers, it is highly
desirable that we show ourselves at home thoroughly
devoted to the principle we are shooting into China.
There are places in this country where Chinese are
not tolerated. To appear means death to them. This
antipathy to Asiatic foreigners extends to the Japan
ese. On the same day that we shot our way into
Tientsin neck and neck with the British two hundred
Americans at Keswick, Cal., expelled twenty-five
Japanese laborers from that vicinity, under threat of
slaughter and penalty, of death if they return to fin
ish the work they had agreed to do.. Is the Governor
of California, like the Governor of Shantung, unable
to protect foreigners inland in this. State? Is the rule
of consular communication double-ended and recip
rocal, and should the Japanese Consul appeal directly'
to the Governor of- California and land troops here :f
he fail to protect these foreigners? * : •
These Asiatics are intensely disliked here. Doesit
not occur to us that Americans and other Caucasian
foreigners are just as intensely disliked in China?
Racial prejudice is a mutual aversion. How can we
expect genial friendship and affection from the
Asiatics in their country when we make no effort to
hide our hatred of them in our country?
In the worldwide hurly-burly that holds the center
of the stage just now the Keswick incident is likely to
escape notice. But we note it as a sign of the times.
We were first to warn the country that such scenes
would occur as the result of admitting Japanese to this
State. It was inevitable. Now what will be done
about it? Does our Government intend to furnish an
army to protect every gang of Japanese and Chinese
laborers? If it do not, then we should at once with
draw our troops from China and cease insisting that
that Government must give armed protection to
Americans within its jurisdiction. It will be seen
that the issue raised is one of race distinction and
classification. It is far-reaching. When it was raised
by Mr. Richardson and Senator Short in The Call a
few months since, in discussing our racial contacts in
the Philippines, no one dreamed that it would have
such a speedy and startling illustration.
THE SCAVENGER CfJRTS AGAIN.
WHEN The Gall some time ago made an expo
sure of the extent to which the scavengers of
the city violated the law requiring them to
have a proper cover upon their carts and wagons, a
pronfise was made of immediate reform. The police
at the time made several arrests, and it was believed
the nuisance and the menace to health of carrying the
refuse of the city through the streets in open vehicles
would be permanently abated. It now appears the
promise has been unfulfilled, and the popular expecta
tion of reform has been disappointed. The scaven
gers, like so many other violators of law who are
confronted with a demand for its enforcement, simply
made a seeming compliance at the time and then
waited for the storm to blow over so that they could
resume the old offense. *
Such being the condition of affairs, it is gratifying
that Chief Sullivan has resolved to permit no further
delay in the enforcement of the law. lie has issued
an order to the police that beginning on Monday,
July 2, the ordinances, and orders of the city relating
to the subject "are to be strictly and rigidly enforced."
The order declares: "All wagons used in the trans
portation of garbage must be lined with zinc, sheet
iron or other metallic substance" and shall be water
tight; and the covers must be of oiled canvas and be
securely fastened at all times, except when garbage
is being put into the carts, and must be on whether
the carts are loaded or empty."
There are about 300 scavenger wagons in the city,
and it is estimated that more than 100 of them have
not been fitted in accordance with the law. More
over, even among those that have been provided with
covers there is still a tendency to evade the purpose
of the law. Thus the Chief states in his order: "I
have noticed of late wagons going through the streets
and from appearances it would indicate that on the
garbage they had placed barrels extending above the
top of the wagon, over which they placed the covers.
This must not be. permitted. The top of the barrel
must not at any time extend above the top of the
The evils resulting from this particular violation of
law hardly need to be pointed out. The odors
emanating from uncovered scavenger wagons pass
ing along the streets are among the worst offenses
that can be committed against a decent community,
but there is, furthermore, a serious danger to health
in permitting refuse, which frequently contains dis
ease germs, to be openly exposed to the air that
thousands of people breathe. All of these evils are
well understood, and there will be a cordial approval
of the actions of the police in enforcing the law by
the arrest of every offender seen upon the streets.

WE TAKE it for granted that all good Republicans desire to win for the party a
complete victory in this-city and county. That desite 1 tends' to the welfare of the
city as well as oi the Republican party, and is therefore ' shared by independent']
citizens. Businessmen know that the Republican party stands not only for national
prosperity, but for good local government, and therefore outside of strictly partisan con
siderations it is eminently desirable the Republican party should win.
To attain that end it is now important and almost absolutely necessary that busi
ness men, professional men and workingmeVi of the Republican party should enroll them
selves in the Republican clubs which, under the direction of the Central Committee, are
now being organized in the various Assembly districts. Those clubs will nominate dele
gates to he voted for at the primaries, and it is hardly necessary to point out to intelligent
men that the delegates so nominated will have a great advantage over any who may be
Here, then, is the situation. The club delegates will win certainly in a majority of
the districts. They will control the convention and through it will come into possession
of the party and hold it until the next municipal campaign. Therefore, should
the Kelly and Crimmins gang get control of the clubs they will have a long start toward
getting control of the party machinery, and will have a potent voice; if not a dominant
one, in forming- the next municipal ticket. Thus the issue involves not only the nomin
ations for Congressmen and legislators in this campaign, but municipal nominations
It is a foregone conclusion that the people will not elect Republican nominees if
they be nominated by a convention under control of saloon-keepers. That means we
shall have a continuance of the Democratic regime of unswept and unlighted streets, no
public improvements and that bubonic Board of Health whose senseless quarantine has
lost to the trade of San Francisco millions of dollars.
Thus it will be seen that the control of the Republican district clubs is a matter of
critical importance to good citizens and to honest Republicans. Now, there is only one
way to control them in the interest of honest politics, and that is for the better class of
Republicans to join them, so as to be able tojelect officers when the time comes for organ
izing them. If the better elements of the party do not join the clubs they will have none
but themselves to blame when disaster comes, as it surely will come should ' Kelly and
