IN' relation to the extension of the McEnerney act concerning the
restoration ©I titles, an eminent jurist of this city tells The
that this measure if unnecessary because the same purpose
. can j^ e ff cc t e( j-foy use o f the provisions of the
so called "Torrens act." which is a general
' law of the state enacted in 18^7. The purpose
: of this law is stated in its title: "An act for
I the certification of land titles and the simpli
fication t f the transfer of real estate." Our correspondent writes
all essential particulars it (the Torrens act) is similar to
Mchnrrney act. held valid by the supreme court of the United
States It oulrl have been used to establish the titles to land in
San Francisco instead of the McEnerney act if its existence and
Validity had been well known. It is fulh at jjood .for that ptsrpQfO
and it serves also for the simplification of transfers. Its validity
was established by the supreme court of this state."
As thi> information comes from a man of the highest authority
in his profession it would he well for the legislature to consider its
bearing on present proposals. It would seem that the only differ
ence in favor of the McEnerney act is that it has survived the final
test of judicial review while the Torrens act is one step short of
LOS A.MIKLES is proceeding in th^ way of municipal action to
put limits on the disfigurement of the city by the erection of
the offensive billboards that make life hideous in modern towns
*"—"" I where no restrictions are enforced. It is an
example th^ Ss^n Francisco might profitably
follqw, and measures of the sort should Have
been adopted San Francisco might profitably
, and measures of the sort should have
dopted long ago, because, in fact, no city
in erica suffers more in this respect than
Aye do. Concerning the Los Ang-eles movement the Express
X! Angeles movement the Express says:
to shut certain industries out of residence
sections, jt has power to shut billboards out of such districts. They should
be shut out at once—absolutely prohibited. In sections where they are
to be permitted they should be regulated in every particular of material
and construction and subjected to a heavy tax. Their value lies entirely
in*the number of people who see them. ,
A billboard in a desert would be worthless. Such value as they have
is conferred on them by the population, and the people should get back
in taxes a proportionate part of the value they themselves confer, if but
in partial compensation for the annoyances they suffer.
Wherever it is legally possible, the billboard should be banished, If
* the nuisance can not be abated in its entirety, then, in sections where
it is? permitted to exist at all, it "should be shorn by regulation of as much
of its offensiveness as possible and taxed heavily.
Complete exclusion from the residence quarters and stiff taxa
tion for use in the business section should constitute the groundwork
of municipal regulation for this nuisance. :
THE BROOKLYN EAGLE, taking a cynical ami pessimistic
view of world's fairs and expositions, agrees, nevertheless, that
San Francisco is entitled on the merits of the case to the
. ' "] 1915 event, but puts it on the ground of j^n-"
ishment and not reward. Quoting: ,
If San Francisco wants the Panama-Pacific
exposition so badly that she is -willing to-pay •
$15,000,000 and ask lift a cent from congress in
- . -• addition, by all means let her have it. Such
.; extravagance should be rewarded by the wholesome experience that
almost invariably comes with the possession of a world's fair privilege.
Thanks, San Francisco is quite willing to assume the risk,
and it will not cost New York or Brooklyn a penny. But. the
Eagle should get its facts straight. . The measure of our "extrav
agance," as it seems to,the cold footed New Yorker, is not $15,000,
--000, but $17,500,000. Every penny of it is California money ami
ay« are quite confident that the experience attendant on its invest
ment for exposition purposes will be "wholesome," although not
perhaps in the sense that the Eagle implies. Even a grudging
spirit like that shown in the quotation cannot impugn' the justice
of San Francisco's claim to national recognition.
SAX FRANCISCO owes a debt of gratitude to its architects who
have done so much since the fire to make a splendid and at
tractive city. Nothing- is risked in the assertion that the new
' ' ~~j S«a Francisco has no equal in point of archi
; tectural beauty on this continent.. The de-
I struction of the city by fire created a great
■ opportunity in this regard and it has been
■__ , _ 1 fully used by our architects. A large respon
sibility has rested on the profession because the layman about to
put up a building usually thinks of little but floor space, and it
rests with his architect to convince him that beauty of form and
color are a paying investment as well as otherwise deferrable.
We congratulate the local architects on their successful invi
tation of the American Institute of their profession to meet in this
city. We know we can show the visiting architects something
worth while in a technical way as well as a spick and span new city.

This extraordinary news, published-in every
city of the United States, is grounded on the
undisputed fact that an American syndicate
. connected with the steel trust has made a
loan of many millions to Honduras, secured by the enormous de
posits of iron ore in that republic. These are supposed to be the
greatest iron ore measures on the continent of North America.
The other and more important part of. the dispatch relating

Liss ner's Tainted Morals Please
The Nostrils of His Man Works
FBOM any honest point of view the campaign operated by Meyer Lissner, et ah,
to nullify the direct primary law is a simple and unblushing attempt to deny or
ignore a patent moral obligation. The silly and transparently evasive reply of
John D. Works to the challenge addressed to him by A. G. Spalding exposes the shiver
ing nakedness of the plea.
The obligation to vote as the districts have instructed is not "legal," says Works
—Works, the former supreme judge, the reformer, the progressive. He does not seek
:to deny, as Lissner has done, that the law creates a moral obligation. Indeed, as Works
! went on the stump in the state campaign asking the electors to give him their votes
'under the provisions of that law he has not dared to stultify himself by repudiating
his action. It was left for Lissner—-God bless the mark! —to set up for an authority
on morals. How good is that authority and whither it tends is shown by Senator.
Wright of Han Diego, who says:
I wish the public would digest the statements .made by Lissner in an endeavor to lead the members
of the legislature into the commission of political treachery, cioaked with the name of reform. Lissner,
under his own signature, said: '"Under the constitution of the United States there can be no legal
obligation on a legislator to vote for any particular person for United States senator, and there is no
such thing as moral obligation unless one has agreed to something an^ made a promise."' i
What a sentiment from the lips of a man who sets himself up as a Moses to lead the people out
of the wilderness of political corruption and slavery! According to this doctrine of Lissner, the
legislators, who have rliade no promises and entered into no formal agreements, are free from moral
obligation; they need not do right unless they promised so to do. If this be reform, God save the mark!
, If California in this trial accepts the Lissner brand of morals it means the end of
primary legislation for the control of the election of United States senators. The so
called ''Oregon plan" is no more legal or constitutional than that established by the
California statute, and the man who repudiates an implied pledge at the bidding of a
boss will do the same thing with a written promise. He knows that the law can not
bind him in either case, and men like Lissuer, equipped with a set of convenient and
elastic morals, would provide him with all the necessary excuses to cover a dishonor
able breach of faith.
The net result is to drag the cause of reform in the dirt.
What special difference is there between the brand of morals peddled by Meyer
Lissner and that expounded and operated by Walter Parker? They are both lobbyists
with all the marks and methods of the breed so well defined that even a door porter
could not tell the difference.
It would be in order now for John D. Works to explain to the legislature what he
meant when he stumped the districts asking for their votes under the provisions of the
primary law—under that law he was defeated by a two to one vote. .
do not know, but it is obvious that its tendency must be to plunge
this country in endless and difficult foreign complications if it is
to be enforced with fire and sword every time Wai! street lends
money to a lame duck republic.
Xow, if the steel trust proposes to take over the government
of Honduras on its own account and keep up a standing army fur
that purpose, there should be no objection in this republic, however
the H'mdurans might regard it, but there will be the most emphatic
protest if it is proposed to use the armed force* of the United States
to pull chestnuts out of the fire for the steel trust. If that insti
tution is minded to buy a republic and run it on trust methods,
there will be no American objection. Tndeed, it would be rather
interesting to watch a central American republic administered by
its creditors on business principles.
BOSTON on the Charles is agitated by a strange and vocifer
ous controversy. That center of culture and hub of the uni
verse maintains or is afflicted by a municipal institution known
as the Art commission, with jurisdiction over
the public statuary and such adornments. It
was in Boston, we believe, that a statue of
General N. P. Banks was recently erected with
its metal trousers ground to a fine edge.
ment of Jujja
Cleopatra in a hobble skirt would not be more out of date with her
self or up to date with modern wrinkles.
Returning to this extraordinary commission we find it making
a decree that no portrait of Julia Ward Howe shall be given place
among the eflftgies of other worthies in Faneuil hall. The exact
ground of this refusal to honor the writer of "The Battle Hymn of
the Republic" is not disclosed and is left to more perplexed inference.
The Boston Transcript speculates on the subject in this wise:
Without the text of the letter of the commission's secretary to the
chairman of the memorial committee —the only document likely soon to
become available—we can only infer from what has leaked out in regard
to its general purport that the action of the commission ii not a rejec
tion, but a disapproval of the committee's plans. From the fact that'
the alternative of a bust in the public library is suggested and other
, collateral facts, we infer also that the commission thinks that this would
constitute a sufficient recognition of Mrs. Howe's literary services to this
community. If this inference is correct, we arc inclined to believe that
the commission has mistaken the purpose of the memorial committee,
which was a .suitable recognition ni the Ablic work and worth of Mrf,
Howe to this city and to the nation. Whether this would he met suf
ficiently by a bust in the public libr*ry is a difficult question to decide
Among other gr6tesque guesses at the state of mind inspiring
the commission is one that its members fear that the acceptance of
Mrs. Howe's portrait for the Faneuil hall gallery would be regarded
as "a victory for woman suffrage." Other speculation on the subject
opines that the commission is persuaded that no woman should be
given/place among the Massachusetts saints. Altogether, the whole
controversy is most perplexing and leaves the world exterior to
Boston wondering, What is fame?

Poor Socrates abandoned hope. They brought

solemn;' "and when I've cashed my pile of chips I
hope the Daily Greek Eclipse will give me half a

The Morning Chit-Chat
SUCH a pretty sight as I Baw yesterday.
The little boy who lives across the way and his
little sister were riding up and down the sidewalk on
their velocipedes. There is a rough place where two
sidewalks join. The little boy was ahead. Having crossed
this place, instead of merely calling out a warning to
his little sisteF or more boylike whizzing on quite unheed
ing, he brought his steed to a standstill, gravely dis
mounted and guided his sister's velocipede across the
unevennesH with all the grave and gentle courtesy of a
youthful Sir Walter Raleigh.
There is nothing pleases me more than to see a grown
up brother and sister who are truly friends as these two
will probably be.
ft seems to me that either stands well recommended"
for matrimony by such a friendship.;
a The girl-whose little brother finds her good company, amusing .and game,
her husband will surely find a "good'comrade.
The nig brother who is thoughtful and considerate of his little sister
when actuated by that greater impulse of sex love, is apt to come mighty
near being a model husband. .. . .■>.-■.. \ * "
; n One of ray correspondents asked me to write on this subject of the beauty
of brother and sister friendship. ":.- - - „'
' "I have in mind." he said. !<av young man (26) of clean habits and good
morals, who is devoted to his little sister (19), spending his earnings upon
her as freely—or more so—as he does upon other girls. When absent from
her he writes always as often as twice a week. They have all their interests
private and otherwise, in common and are mutually helpful, one to the other'>
It is a, pleasure to see them together." * *-
. I also know of one or two such friendships and I certainly agree with my
mend that they are most pleasant to contemplate, -
I only wish there were more of them. - •
Mothers can help inaugurate such good feeling between brother and si)
ter by teaching the boy to show courtesy and consideration and chivalry
towards his little .sister and the girl to take the same kind of interest in her
big brother's affairs as she does. in her other boy friends'activities- but ih<
perpetuation of the, friendship rests with the children themselvS, of course
. ; I know there is a tang of unpleasant truth in the old saving "God
gave us our relatives. , THANK God we can choose our friends " but truly
it seems to me as if people might find more friends among their relatives
than they usually do. - . ■. - ; . ■ ciamc.
