The Arohbald Impeachment.
TIio verdict of guilty In the case
of Judge Archbald seemed Inevitable
trtm th evl(,oncC, which was BS
overwhelming against him as the
vote of the senators hr which hn wan
impeached. Ho may honestly be-
Hove, as he nays, that ho wits Inno
cent of wrong-doing, for he seems to
be a perfect typo of flexible ethics
that sees no dividing line between
Judicial proprieties and improprie
ties. The RJimn power that doomed
this Judge is tho one that has driven
faltblctm men out of other; high of
fices, the power of an aroused and
quickened public conscience. No mat
ter whnt Judge Archbald may think,
what he did as revealed in the evi
dence, could never bo made compati
ble with the real function of a judge.
Here we have an Impressive dem
onstration of the efficacy of estab
lished legal processes which ought
to strengthen faith in the wisdom of
the constitution, as contrasted with
new and untried devices. The Im
peachment of a Judge not only con
demns and removes him from office,1
hut prevents him from over again;
holding .i federal position. Under a
popular recall, ho would doubtlesH
net about nt once to neok n vindica
tion and he might persuade many
lieoplo lo believe him the victim
merely of projudico or conspiracy.
Happily thtj verdict permits of no ap
peal nnd we may all hope will draw
the curtain on the Case.' '

Contemporary, the N World-Horald,

The' plain purpose of the sponsors
of tho bill Is to perpetuate In power
tho present management of Ihe water
plantP and make It the center of an
huge political machlno with which -to
overawe and dominate all 6ther
branches of municipal government.
In .view of the political partner
ship that has been maintained be
tweon our democratic 'Uriftba States
senator and tho republican. .Water
board boss for mutual. perquisites
and advancement, it is not surprising
that the souator's newspaper 'should
go back on all its high-sounding pro
fessions of deep devotion to home
rule in order to push .the pet scheme
of Its bi-partisan ally.

The list ot American benefactions In
sums of $10,009 and upward amounts this
year to tS7,000,000. Tho sum Is stupendous
when compared with that In any
European country, but not abnormal In
our own. The largest contribution comes
from J. Plerpont Morgan Instead ot from
Carnegie or Rockefeller, aa for many
years past, and Is made tip almost wholly
of art treasures presented to the Metro
This probably means that when tho
Carnegie Corporation and the Rockefeller
Foundation havo been completely en
dowed we shall have no more such huge
donations from single Individuals. The
determination ot tho peoplo to prevent
any further accumulations ot such wealth
through monopoly and privilege virtually
assures tho end of that regime. The
passing of Mr. Morgan to the head of the
list may mean the beginning ot a new
era in our phtlanthropleai
There will be no regret over tho change.
This country needs many things much
more titan It needs or ever needed the
philanthropy ot millions. It will be better
when wo da somt things for ourselves
Instead of wotting for such splendid alms.

Editor of The Bee; There has been sent
broadcast In late years a lot ot printed
matter from California In regard to Its

has been thousands of dollars spent by
unscrupulous advertisers who deal In
real estate to Induce unsuspecting eastern
peoplo to come here and buy lind.
gome of tho land Is tolerably good, while
eomo of It la worthless.
An eastern man can come to California
and buy good 310 land for JIM per acre,
and he can also buy good JCO land for
1,200 per crc It he Is smart, but It green
