Soapbox Oratory Modernized
Rivals "Boost" to Hold Crowds
Four Hour Workday Doctrine Attracts Auditors
From Eight Hour Advocate
There has been an oratorical division
of labor among the philosophers and
economists who operate nightly in
Grant avenue, the ideal time of strug
gling for daily bread having been cut
In half within the last week.
For several weeks an exponent of
political science has held the atten
tion of crowds by preaching the gospel
of the eight hour day. While there
was nothing radical in his remarks,
most people having already arrived at
the conclusion that eight hours is
enough for any man to work, the short
day evangelist was surrounded by a
notable gathering of auditors who
cheered his pronouncement of their
views. Eight hours for all was the
captivating slogan of Grant avenue,
and the folk who now work for that
span and those who are willing to do
so stood about on the pavement and
applauded.
RIVAL CITS AVORKIVG TIME
The popularity of the eight hour a
day man aroused the envy of another
Grant avenue philosopher. He had
been contributing to the street corner
symposium an elevating lecture about
the earth being square with beveled
edges and whittled poles, but that talk,
novel and instructive as it was, failed
to charm the crowd from the eight
hour a day orator.

GROCER SELLS WHISKY
TO POLICE SERGEANT
Arrested for Trafficking in
Liquor Election Day
The first person to get himself into
trouble with the police yesterday was
Julius Wrede, a grocer of 777 Union
street. Sergeant John Moffltt walked
into Wrede's place of business and
asked for a bottle of whisky. Moffltt
paid $1 for the bottle and then placed
the grocer under arrest.
Wrede was charged at the city prison
with violating section 63P of the penal
code, making it a felony to sell liquor
election day.
The grand jury met sresterdays r esterday In Its
rooms in the hall of justice. The in
quisitorial body sat until late In the
evening in the event of any violations
of the election laws.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL
It was granted by all that any
proposition so well established as the
eight hour day had no place In Grant
avenue, but the crowd hung on the
eight hour words and would not leave
to study mundane geometry.
Until the other man got an idea.
He mounted his soapbox Monday
night an<j remorselessly, relentlessly,
ruthlessly cut down the ideal work
ing day from eight to four hours. Four
hours was the real time for which
folks should labor, he declared. To
work for eight hours was cruel and
unusual punishment and would be in
terdicted In the new constitution when
it was adopted.
XEW STANDARD IS SET
Soon the high pitched .words, "four
hour day," penetrated the circle of the
eight hour day man. As the audience
of the latter heard the cheerful sylla
bles, one by one they dropped their
champion and hurried to the standard
of the new philosopher.
Four hours a day has become the
standard Iβ Grant avenue. Tt is uni
versally preached and almost univer
sally practiced. The chief violator of
its provisions is the man who advo
cates it. He lias to talk for five hours
every night to satisfy his audience.
TONGS SIGN PEACE
PACT TO END WAR
Factions Reluctantly Vow to
Cease Shooting and Police
Maintain Guard
Peace arrangements were completed
yesterday between the Suey Sing and
Hop Sing tongs, and there will be no
continuation of the war which began
Monday evening, when 20 shots were
exchanged in Ross alley by members
of both factions. Consul General L.I
Yeung Yew, in conference with the
heads of all the tongs, the two warring
factions included, conducted the peace
movement.
The heads of the two quarreling
tongs, Quong Shee Ping and Kg Ting
Hock of the Suey Sing tong, and Wong
Quong and Wong Wing of the Hop
Sings, were present at the peace meet
'ng in the headquarters of the Chinese
Six companies, and signed the agree
ment which calls for no more shooting.
Monday night's shooting followed an
exchange of uncomplimentary remarks
between members of the two tongs In
front of Yee May's gambling house and
pleasure resort.
Both tongs have been at outs for
many years. It was only 10 months
ago that the Hop Rings and Suey Sings
became Involved in one of the most
bitter tong wars in the history of local
Chinatown. Twenty men were killed
while the war lasted, and it spread
all over California. Several Suey
Sing men have been convicted of mur
der in the first degree.
Despite the peace agreement, both
sides were slow to express confidence
in the other living up to the agreement,
and extra police vigilance will be main
tained in Chinatown.
All
main
other tongs have agreed to re
neutral.
Fur Coat $6,OOO—SOLD
This card, attached to a magnificent full length
Chinchilla Fur Coat, trimmed with blue fox and
lined with gold brocade, attracted the attention
of thousands in the windows of H. Liebes & Co.
during the late Fashion Show.
The most remarkable feature, however, is the
fact that this royal garment represented a
HOME PRODUCT. Every phase of its manu
facture, from the securing of the pelts in the
Far North to the final finishing touch, was the
work of H. Liebes & Co.'s skilled employees,
backed by the largest fur manufactory in this
country. No middleman's profit when you buy

CITY HAS POWER
TO FORCE RATES
Charter Gives Municipality Right
to Regulate the Charges of
Service Corporations
San Francisco's power to regulate
the rates charged by public service
corporations is a weapon which should
be used to force the United Railroads
to make extensions of its system and
come to satisfactory terms with the
city, according to the advice given the
supervisors yesterday by Dr. Delos F.
Wilcox, the eastern expert on corpora
tion franchises who addressed the
board at a special meeting on pend
ing charter amendments.
Doctor Wilcox, who spoke after
Bion J. Arnold had expressed his
views in a written report, said that
San Francisco was most fortunate In
having the right to regulate rates.
"You must have extensions," he
said. "Tn possessing the power of
rate regulation you have a weapon to
induce the railway company to do cer
tain things. The corporation controls
the core of the city—the most valu
able franchises. Business done there
should be made to support the , exten
sions, which the city needs and which
the company does not care about
making because of the slight profit."
Bion J. Arnold read a report sug
gesting sections to be Incorporated in
the charter amendments which will be
submitted to the voters. December 10,
for the regulation and control of pub
lic utility franchises. He said that
the city, through the high riding habit
of streetcar patrons, Is an exceedingly
profitable traction field and that a high
standard of service was therefore pos
sible. The three important objects of
regulation by amendment, he said, are
adequate service; the protection of ac
tual investment, whether municipal or
corporate; and the highest rate of
wages consistent with the limitations
of the five cent fare.
On the suggestion of Supervisor
Vogelsang the board decided to refer
the drafting of the amendments to Dr.
Wilcox, Arnold and E. A. Walcott,
president of the special committee on
the amendments. Wilcox will work
out his plan alone and will then con
fer with the others. The board de
cided to meet again tonight and to
morrow morning as the amendments
must be rushed through to get on the
December ballot.
Mayor Rolph and the supervisors
were requested in a communication re
ceived yesterday from the Oceanside
Improvement club to arrange for the
incorporation of two additional parcels
of land In the proposed purchase of
100 acres from the Sutro heirs. The
strips of property which the improve
ment club suggests would greatly im
prove the Great highway, are on the
east side of the boulevard between
Lincoln way and Irving street and be
tween Irving and Judah streets.
SCHEDULE TOO EARLY
FOR OCEAN SHORE FOLK
Commuters Ask Change in Train
Departure
One hundred and thirty-six residents!
along the line of the Ocean Shore rail
road petitioned the state railroad com
mission yesterday to order the com
pany to put on an extra train for the
accommodation of those having busi
ness in Ran Francisco.
They complain that the schedule the
railroad proposes to inaugurate Novem
ber 10 provides for insufficient service
and business men living between Sari
Francisco and Halfmoon Bay would be
compelled to arise before sunrise in or
der to reach this city in the morning
for work to take a train that would
land them here at 7:40 o'clock
They ask that the schedule be ar
ranged for arrival at 8:40.
added to other discomforts, shopping is
a sore trial ,to nerves, temper and health.
