Small Bonds City Builders
J The public utilities committee of the board
'A supervisors has wisely decided to recom
mend that a portion of the proposed municipal rail
way extension bonds be issued in denominations
of '$100. '.' : , '" ,
The committee's program contemplates a bond
ed debt of $3,500,000. to be retired in 3! annual re
demption Installments- The redemption period is
to begin five years after the bonds are issued.
Fifty-five per cent of the bond*? are to be issued
m the customary denominations of $1,000: 30 per
cent in denomination*, of $500. and 15? per cent in
denominations of $100.
The board of supervisors will serve their con
stituents well and make votes for the, municipal
road extension project by adopting that program
with the provision* that the $100 bonds be reserved
for local popular sale.
Shell a program probably Will nOt meet with the
Unqualified approval of the bond dealers. It is not
improbable that it wilt meet with some 'sturdy op
position from the savings banks. ' That ha? been
the experience of other cities.
That the Opposition of the batiks is unwar
ranted has been proved both in France and in this
country. France is the home of the small bond.
The Frenth people are the best bond buyers and
the best savers in the world.
The Freflfch savings banks have profited rather
than lost by the popular enthusiasm for small bond
investments. The bonds bought With the savings of
the people go to the banks as their most desirable
form of collateral for loan?. There is a division
of profits which makes both for thrift afld increased
The success achieved by the city of St. Paul in
selling it§ impfOvements Bonds ih small denomina
tions directly to the people has proved that the
American people would be as good bond buyers
as the French if tliejHVefe given equal opportunity
tO make such investments, .
There Is no fluid form.of saving investment that
compares with the- public \)&tid, Unless it be sOme Of
the industrials which bear a higher rate of interest.
That field of investment has been closed to the
small saver because the bond dealers have insisted
that securities be issued in denominations too large
for the purse of the : wage and average salary
The certain security Of the public bond has a
natural and irresistible appeal for those untrained
in the mysteries of finance;
The public bond in small denominations pulls
money out of the hidden stocking as nothing else
can. It inspires public confidence, in the commu
nity. -It is a city builder. - * •
' - The per capita savings of the people of San '
Francisco exceed those of any American city. The
men and women who work have faith in San Fran
cisco. Give them a chance to share in its building
and the profits of its advancement.
Offer them municipal road extension bonds of
$100 denominations bearing A/ x 2 per cent interest
and they will authorize the debt, buy the bonds,
build the roads and cry for more.
The Virtue of Works
! A Kansas City lawyer has Written a caustic
letter* to United States Senator John D.
Works condemning the senator's apparent deter
initiation to prosecute a charge of attempt to bribe
against an illiterate, Old German. The culprit
offered Mr. Works $1,000 for the berth of postmas
ter at Santa Barbara.
The Kansas City mail told Senator Works that
it was difficult to believe that a man big enough
to be elected to the United States seriate could be
small enough to appear against an old man whose
letter disclosed his ignorance of American law and
modern political ethics. ■.
Of course, the illiterate, old man committed a
crime, if unconsciously. Nevertheless there are
tew men in congress who would attempt to send
him to prison to Satisfy their appetite for free ad-
The Sort of crime committed by the Santa Bar
bara illiterate is committed many times every year
by ignorant men -and women. There is probably
not a man who has served two years in either
house who has not received one or more letters like
that received by Senator Works.
v Scores of them are written ever)' year. Con
gressmen not too suspicious of their own virtue
who. disregard them wholly or without rushing to
the newspapers explain to their correspondent's that
they have unwittingly offended against the laws of
the nation and of good breeding. -
Time was, and not so long since, when the
immaculate Works had more compassion for con
scious violators of law who sought to make him
the beneficiary of their misdeeds.
John D. Works is a member of the United
States senate because legislators listened to his
pleadings to violate the law of California and steal
for him a seat in the upper house of the national

Perhaps the old German'at Santa Barbara had
heard about how Works get his seat in the senate.
If he had, the senator undoubtedly was justified in
the belief that a deliberate attempt had been made
to bribe him.

Santa Barbara man had consults a few of Cali

himself a lot of trouble.

The Budget Turned Down
1 In spite of the appeals of its intelligent arid
well informed leaders the democratic majority
of tl>e house of representatives; with that dense stu
pidity which sometimes makes the donkey its fit
party emblem, has killed the measure intended; to
create a national budget." *
Ours is the only civilised nation in the world
which lias no budget. This strange, because it
is probably tnie that hi no nation more than irt the
United States is the budget principle carried out
With greater detail and accuracy in .domestic as
well as commercial and industrial establishments.
Former Secretary of-War Stimson in the current
Harper s ; Weekly. gives his experience going to
prove how necessary a budget really is. He shoWs
that the functions, of providing revenues and Of
making appropriations fOr revenues arc divided
and subdivided among several Committees and sub-,
committees of both houses; and senate, with no
attempt at co-ordination, without knowledge, by
one of what the r other is doing, and with over
lapping and duplication of appropriations. He says
that congress is HOw at the mercy of any individual
or private interest that can get before any of these
committees and inspire them with the desirability
of an appropriation; * •
Not only this, but as Mr. Stimson more forcibly
says "Such legislative methods simply invite de
mands for improper favors. The secrecy of the
committee room plays directly into the hands of
the lobbyist and the Corporate seeker of favors
while the lack of personal responsibility makes It
impossible for the people to punish any one politi
cally for the results of the system."
To continue the existing plan, expensive* tend
ing to improper legislation, unscientific and unsys
tematic, is what the democratic house of represen
tatives has just voted to do;
When the public wakes up some day. as it surely
will soon, to the imperative need of the government
adopting a plan to outline how much money it will
heed for expenses in a year and hOW it is proposed
to raise it. then any hOUse of representatives which
opposes the popular want will surely be turned out
of office. The need of cutting one's coat according
to the cloth has been recognized by nearly every
one except members of the house of representa
tives/" ' ' . :* :' "'."■:•";.', . •"*: ■
UL The decision of the Chamber of Commerce of
this city and the California Development
board to make a practical union for all exploitation
and development work of common interest, is one
of the best moves onward, if not the very best, that
has been taken this year.
With separate organisations working along the
same lines to a common end there is often likely
to be duplication of labor, waste of money, friction
between officials and Other economic loss, all of
which can be avoided by a combination that pro
duces greater energy, efficiency and force. y
By a combination of the Chamber of Commerce
wkh the development board for the purposes named
San Francisco cart demonstrate clearly to the com-'
plete satisfaction of the Sometimes suspicious
lesser cities and towns that it is in no way opposed
to them Or to their interests: but that on the Con
trary this city stands for all California first, because
it realizes fully that as the state grows So San
Francisco will grow.
There is a very great work ahead of the new
management to do. Each of the combining organi
zations has already done most effective work, but
the work immediately ahead, not of advertising
the exposition as such, but of making the expo
sition the focus of fan advertising campaign which
will aid in state development will tax the ingenuity,
the w energy and all the resources of the new execu
tive management. , *
All Salt Francisco* should respond as one man
to any call which may be made upon it for assist
ance in the new work in order that the real attrac
tions of this state i may be more fully presentee! to
the world than they ever have : been before.

For 21 years George 0. Hale lias been
chief of the Kansas City fire depart
ment, and recently -he Was appointed
president of the fire fend water commis
sion of that city. After/a tour Of the
United States ( investigating the fire de
partments of nearly air the large cities,
he has come to the conclusion that San
Franciscd has about "the moat efficient
corps of .;men and the* best i apparatus
obtainable. Hale's 'exhibit in the fire
show in the St. Tjotiis fair Won first
pfiie. At the Si. Francis yesterday,
where he is stopping with his family,
Mr. Hale said:' ..'. .„ - . . ...-.,' ,"•
''San (Francisco • has one of the best
and I most efficient high power 'systems
In the world. The hydrants, located at
most street cornets : and at the base of
the big business and apartment houses,
are equal to engines under full steam
when vigorous streams of water are
necessary. This city is known through
out the United States for its adequate
fire fighting force and up to date ap

abated' here also. - For instance, you
have manholes In the floors Of /big
business • houses, and all that; Is re
quired in case of • fire is to lift up the
door and run down the cellar pipe. In
the eastern cities it is necessary .for
the firemen to stop and chop a hole, in
the flooring, thereby wasting time and
energy;. , .',
"Continuous drilling of the' members
of .the force,., combined with *;& chief
(Chief Murphy)- who knows his busi

a Well protected city. The water frdflt
