NOT FAIR PLAY.
If the world admires anybody more
than a game loser it is a gallant
winner.
At Appomatox, where the star of
the Confederacy disappeared, forever,
the world applauded two great mil
itary men-Lee, who had led the
armies of the South, through four
long years of war, against over
whelming odds and knew how to
accept defeat, and Grant, who refused
the sword of the Southern chieftain
and sent his officers and men back
to their devastated lands with their
horses and their side-arms, the former
to aid them in the recultivation of
their soil, the latter to protect their
families and themselves from per
sonal danger.
We had a sorry contrast here the
other evening in the almost indecent
celebration staged in Algiers, the
home of former Mayor Behrman, in
which the leader of the New Regu
lars and some of his successful can
didates participated.
So far as The States is concerned,
no one will accuse it of being an
apologist for Mr. Behrman. It helped
to defeat him in the last city cam
paign and it was a large factor in
rallying the voters against his can
didates in the two public service
commissioner campaigns.
But we cannot believe that the P
great bulk of those who were on the
winning side have anything but re
gret for the Algiers incident.
If the celebration had been staged
at some central point in the city where
could have been no real objection. Or
if some of Mr. Behrman's political
enemies in his home ward had
got up the blowout it might have ref
been dismissed as a mere case of
local bad taste. gil
But for Col. Sullivan and the suc- 61
cessful New Regnlar's winners to go of
to the ex-Mayor's home to glory in ac
his humiliation was in our judgment to
close to the border-line of indecency; ca
and we rather believe they themselves m

the council to ask for an increaseI TI

The company originally was cited
to show why it could not stand the T

let- mates the repairs needed will cost slot

i of The company is operating from ten of

Williams 1To Investigate
Viaduct--Citizens Are
Pleased By Early Action
A few days ago some of our citizens
mentioned to Francis Williams, the
newly elected Public Service Commis
sioner, that our Newton Street via
duct was impossable due to decap and
that a controversy existed between
the city, the Southern Pacific Rail
road and the Algiers Railway. He
became very much interested in the
matter and offered his services to
bring about the re-establishment of
- this important thoroughfare. The
Newton Street viaduct is now a
dangerous bridge, closed to traffic by
city authorities. The viaduct orig
inally cost about $0,0tO.00 and when
the Algiers Rtailway bought their
. franchise, it was a part of this fran
r chise that they were to maintain the
. viaduct, which they failed to do. It
,is now a question as to whom is at
fault in the matter, whether the city
should have seen to it that the Rail
way Company repaired the viaduct or
d for the Southern Pacific Company to
' have seen to it that the viaduct was
d kept up as the Southern Pacific Com
ipany is the only benefactor from this
d viaduct.
ie Commissioner Williams made a
Sspecial trip to Algiers to Inspect the
Sdilapidated bridge and told the Al
of giers people that he would make
tl special efforts to get a hearing at
te once so that we would immediately
get the relief to which we were en
re titled.
