OPINIONS differ as to the probable effect of the interstate
commerce commission's decision in the Reno case on the
jobbing trade of the coast cities and of San Francisco in
particular. Some there are who hold that it
must be injurious to local interests, while
others believe it will not materially alter the
course of trade. It is, perhaps, too soon to
resolve these doubts, and as the decision is
not altogether final we must wait some time for results.
One thing established be)-ond persdventure of a doubt is that
the local rate between this city, Sacramento and Reno is mon
strously unreasonable. That rate was originally fixed to meet the
competition of ox teams and exacted the last penny that the traffic
would- bear without losing the business to the bull teams that plied
across the mountains in the early period of Nevada mining. There
is nothing tentative or experimental about the ruling of Commis
sioner Lane in this regard and it must result in a decided gain for
the coast cities as well as for Nevada.
Mr. Lane's opinion demonstrates that the rates charged on
the Southern Pacific system are not only unreasonable but exorbi
tant and the figures quoted by the commissioner present a telling
indictment against the advances in rates put in effect on these
roads within the last two years. It is quite clear that these rates
must come down. Mr. Lane says:
If we take the Central Pacific alone, we find it third in the list of
Pacific coast roads in tons carried and the highest of all in freight
earnings per mi1e— 513,453 per mile in 1907. While it is one of three
railroads in the west carrying more than a million tons of freight per
mile of road, the earnings of the Central Pacific per mile are 65 per
cent greater than the average in the United States and 100 per cent
greater than the average of the roads west of Chicago.
These figures explain why, as Mr. Lane says., "during the last
two years the operating revenues of the Southern Pacific company's
Pacific system increased $8,000,000 while its operating expenses
decreased $5,00*0,000, thus producing an increased operating income
of $13,000,000, or a net increase of about $2,000 a mile."
This demonstration means that the Southern Pacific has in
the *ast two years, by the exercise of arbitrary power, imposed a
tax of $8,000,000 ©n the producers and shippers of California and
has by the same operation effected a saving of $5,000,000 in its
expenses. This is to say that the monstrous tax imposed on business
so cut down the volume of trade that the cost of carrying it was
$5,000,000 less. This is taxing the traffic for all it will bear with a
No matter what may be the final settlement of the long and
short hauls dispute as affected by water competition it is settled
that the local rates between the coast and Nevada points must come
down to some reasonable basis, and. in this ruling the local traders
may find relief. One result is likely to be an extensive resort to
competition by sea, which, with the help of materially reduced rates
to the intermountain trading centers, will give this city its legitimate
advantage due to as a seaport. It may take some time
to bring about these results, but the ruling of the commission
appears certain to effect a material increase in the commerce of

Governor Hughes in his campaign to force
the New York legislature to pass. a direct
primary law. It is work in a good cause that
Roosevelt does when he makes such a timely
and compelling utterance.
Out and Con
The New York legislature is dominated by a corrupt alliance
between small party bosses, republicans and democrats, doin
machine politics. Governor Hughes during his term as executive
has been able, with the backing of public opinion, to hammer the
reluctant allies into some semblance of decency, but in view of his
early retirement from active politics to take his place on the supreme
bench the bosses got the idea that they could safely defy him The
governor called a special session of the legislature to consider the
direct primary bills and investigate the notorious corruption amon~
members, but the bosses lay back in the traces. They even circu
lated reports that Roosevelt was on their side so far as the direct
primary measures were concerned.
Roosevelt has effectively spiked that gun and. the effect of his
declaration has been to throw the bipartisan allies into confusion
Before Roosevelt spoke the defeat of the bill was considered certain
and the result is still regarded as doubtful. The bosses know that
the direct primary means an end to their power and are makiuo- a
life and death struggle. It is just the sort of emergency when a
powerful voice is needed in command. .-
IT is all in favor of a world's fair for San Francisco in 1915 that
the proposition to hold a similar exposition in New York in 1913
is abandoned or in the way of abandonment. It had been sug
gested that a world's fair be held in New York
to celebrate the three hundredth anniversary
of the settlement of Manhattan, and Mayor
Gaynor appointed a committee to consider the
matter, but at once thirty-iiine out of the forty
appointees declared against the proposition, and although the mayor
named another committee of fifteen it is regarded as almost certain
that an adverse report will be made.
Concerning this result the Philadelphia Inquirer" writes:
There can be no denying that this will be a sensible conclusion. Not
only has the world's fair business been greatly overdone, but if New -
York were to undertake the organization of such ah exhibition it would •
be expected to do at least as well as Chicago or St. Louis, and those
cities established a standard of accomplishment not easily equaled: and*
scarcely to be surpassed. New Yorkers who shrink from the competition
the Way for

show therein an intelligent understanding of the situation and a correct'
appreciation of the character and limitations of the community to which
they belong. Of course, New York could readily spare the millions
which a world's fair would cost, but an enthusiastic support is imper
atively essential to the success of such an enterprise, and in New York;
the enthusiasm would be lacking. * * *
There are some other reasons which militate against holding a
world's fair in New York city in 1913, such asthe lack of sufficient time
and the fact that it is intended to celebrate the opening of the Panama^
canal by one of these exhibitions, but the all sufficient reason why there
will be no world's fair in Manhattan either in 1913, or in any other year,
is that the New Yorkers themselves are generally opposed to the idea.
The fact is that the people of New York 'feel that the city is
already too crowded. The local transit system is quite unable to
handle the traffic with any sort . of comfort and matters in this
relation appear to grow, worse rather than better. - t •
New York will get out of the way for San Francisco in 1915
and New Orleans will never be in it for the reason that the neces
sary $7,500,000 can not be raised. An essential part of the New
Orleans program is an issue of state bonds for $4,000,000. Taxes
in Louisiana are already very high and the state's credit is the
worst possible because default has been made on some of its out
standing bonds. The people are not in the least likely to vote a
new debt that they would find the utmost difficulty in meeting.
SECRETARY BALLINGER thinks it worth c while to load the
mails with copies of a . pamphlet entitled 'Testimony Showing
the Complete Failure of Charges Made, by Pinchot, Glavis
and Others," accompanied by "editorial ex
pressions from some of the leading 'journals
relative to "the- investigation."
The pamphlet might easily have been
prepared by the- obstreperous .Mr. Lawler of
Los Angeles. It shows about the same sort of temper and prejudice
as did the letter Mr. Lawler wrote "as if he were president." Who
ever the author the pamphlet is wholly one sided and is -"therefore
essentially a flat misrepresentation of" the tenor and results of the
investigation.. Extracts from Ballinger's direct testimony as elicited
by his own counsel are given at length, but not one word from that
remarkable cross examination by Brandeis which exhibited the secre
tary of the interior in the light of a shifty and evasive witness
resorting to every dodge to-conceal or disguise the truth.
Among the"leading journals", from which Mr. Ballinger quotes
expressions of approval are the San Francisco Chronicle and the
Los Angeles Times, with other newspapers of 4ike affiliations and
spirit. A certificate- of good moral character Jxom the Chronicle is
just about as good as the morals of that paper. It may be. that
Mr. Ballinger desires to get into that class, but such indorsements
will not materially help. to rehabilitate his reputation, in California.

SEVERAL weeks ago a Chinese laundryman was found ssphyxfated in his
room in the home of a family residing in exclusive Hillsboro.
S On this particular day every one had come to town for a day's
shopping,- and the houses on the hill were deserted save for the retinues
of servants, who were thrown into the highest state of excitement over the
discovery, by a fellow countryman, of the sad and sudden ending of the
The telephone lines to town were kept busy in the frantic efforts to
locate the family, but as they were unsuccessful it devolved upon somebody to
officiate in some capacity wherein he could assume sufficient authority to
summon the coroner and have all the unpleasant evidences of the death
removed before the return of the. well known couple.
< In the group of chattering, affrighted maids, butlers, valets, chauffeurs
and coachmen there seemed to be one sturdy man who by acclamation was
appointed proxy for the head of the house, and promptly given his power
of attorney. With quickness and dispatch he completed all the unpleasant
details, patiently observing the bright red tape the circumstances involved,
and breathed a sigh of relief as the whistle of the train, from town, signified
its arrival at the station.
Every one was distressed at the incident, but a normal adjustment of the
various households was compulsory on account of the dozen or more demoral
ized Chinamen, who recalled the fact that a few weeks before another laun
dryman employed by the same family had suddenly become insane— it cer
tainly was a strange coincidence, and something was said about, a hoodoo.
The next evening when Mr. returned from town he asked if anything
else had happened, but he did not expect the answer he received from his
wife. "Yes," she said, hopelessly, "the Chinese gardener fell out of an oak
tree and broke his arm" — and indeed it was too true. He had climbed up the
tree to rid it of some dead branches, fell 20 feet to the ground, and was
Physicians from San Mateo were called to set the arm and care for the
damaged Chinaman. It was with the greatest reluctance some days later that
the young matron went to town to attend a luncheon, and while at the table
the butler announced that she was wanted at the telephone. As she left
the room she exclaimed, with despair, "Well, I hope it's not another dead
Chinaman," and it was not — merely a solicitous inquiry for the one who was
