No Lonqer "Frisco"
It will be recalled that the treasury
department .some weeks ago issued an
order that the name -'Frisco" should
no longer UH'1" to the city of ;?an
The undignified abbreviation came
to be applied to the city that guards
the Golden Gate in this way: In the
first place, "San Francisco" is a pret
ty long name for one who is in a
hurry and it was therefore reduced to
its lowest terms just as bs Angeles
is frequently cut down to "Loss," to
the indignation of the citizens of the
City of the Angels. Telegraph opera
tors are largely responsible for the
abbreviation of the names of towns
and the traveling 'salesmen spread
their inventions. In the case of San
Francisco, too, almost every rube and
jay who has visited that place refers
to it as "Frisco," to show his famil
iarity with it.
The citizens of San Francisco very
properly resent the nickname which
is not dignified and which, as was
pointed out in the order of the treas
ury department, is not distinctive,
since there are a dozen villages of
that name scattered throughout the
The Republican is in receipt of a
letter from a former resident of Thoe
nix and now engaged in business in
San Francisco, in which he encloses
a clipping from The Republican, the
abbreviation appearing in a headline.
It has always been the policy of
this paper to avoid calling people and
places out of their names and it
wj.uld especially follow this policy
with respect to San Francisco, one of
the. most delightful cities on the
American continent and a place
around which glorious memories lin
ger. There can lie pleaded in behalf
of The Republican's offense, only the
headline writer's license which is
broader even than that of the poet
for it permits him to disregard the
commonest rules of grammar, to em
ploy slang and do many things that
would be permitted nowhere else.
But never in body type does the
name, "Frisco," appear in The Re
publican and henceforth the liberty
of the headline artist will be curtailed.
The prevailing sentiment of San
Fram isco in this matter is set forth
in the following editorial rebuke by
the San Francisco Chronicle:
"A writer in the Washington Tost
declares that he is going to call San
Francisco 'Frisco' as long as he
pleases. Nobody can stop him but he
may at least be told that he is in
error when he asserts that we only
began to object to the familiar term
since we won the exposition. He is
mistaken. San Franciscans have re
r.ented 'Frisco' during many years
pa:;t ami they do so because they
think it is as silly to call the city by
a, wrong name as it would be to call
the national capital 'Washy.'"
Hearst's Part in It
William R. Hearst is directly res
ponsible for the course the senate in
vestigation of campaign contributions
has taken. To him must be attribut
ed the temporary diversion of public
attention from the presidential cam
paign of today to that of tight years
It was an inopportune time for him
to spring that Archbold letter' to Mr.
I'enrose. stolen along with a lot of
other letters from the offices of Mr.
Archbold some years ago. It
could have been printed long before
this or long after, but, no, Mr. Hearst
would further complicate things now,
On the face of it, the publication
wins to have been intended to do in
Jury to Mr. I'enrose but when we
come to consider, there was never a
time in the career of that gentleman
when he could so well stand such ,an
attack. He is not a candidate for re
In the late Pennsylvania primaries
he was deposed from the leadership
of the republican party of that state
J lis condition now could not be made
worse by the disclosures of that let
ter, whereas, if the disclosures had
would have contributed to his over
throw. The publication seemed to be in
tended to prove that Mr. Archbold had
sent to Mr. Penrose a check for $25,
000, presumably in payment for in
formation regarding the proceedings
of th industrial commission ot wnien
ho was a member. Mr. Hearst must
have known how easily Mr. Penrose
could explain that away, just as he
has clone, and that the time for ex
plaining it was at hand in the sit
tings of the investigating committee.
He must have known that there was
no secrecy about the proceedings of
the industrial commission, so that
there was no need to pay $25,000 or
any other sum for information.
Mr. Hearst, furthermore, should
have known that Mr. Penrose, prob
ably knew less than any other mem
ber regarding the work of the com
mission since it appears that he at
tended only two of its sessions and
he seems to have taken no interest in
the object for which the commission
was appointed.
It seems, therefore, that the pur
pose of Mr. Hearst was only to "start
something' which would, he expected,
or hoped, involve his friend Mr. Roose
velt, whom he loves only a little less
ardently than his other friend. Mr.
Bryan. If he had precipitated this
tning neiore me investigation com
mittee got to work that probably
would not have been a result. Less
likely would it have been the result
of the publication if it had been made
before the vicious and frequent at
tacks upon Mr. Penrose by Colonel
Roosevelt since before the beginning
of the fight iti Pennsylvania. Pen
rose could have cleared himself of the
suspicion aroused by the Archbold
letter without dragging Mr. Roose
velt in, or at least, without dragging
him in so deeply. But Mr. Hearst
relied on human nature of which he
doubtless surmised, Mr. Penrose pos
sessed his share.
General Booth and the Abbey
It is said that burial in West
minster Abbey has . been denied Gen
cral William Booth. Probably what
has occurred is, that a hint has been
given that permission would lie de
nied, for evidently no request has
been made for the burial of the
commender-in-chief's body there, in
that historic place of sepulture
where more mighty dead are gath
ered than in any other spot on the
gl-be; there "where there are graves
without poets and poets without
There among the bones of the fam
ous are the bones of those who were
infamous. Proximity to the highest
there would add nothing to the luster
of the name of General Booth whose
remains rather would ennoble his
noble surroundings.
Xone there whose skill in letters,
in arms or art occupied so high a
place in the world as the dead commander-in-chief
attained. The ac
cident of birth placed none of the
Abbey's silent tenants so high.

NEW YORK. Aug. 24. Apart from
the extreme weakness of Canadian Pa
cific, which registered another severe
decline fin fairly large dealings there
was little of interest in todays narrow
and dull stock market. The selling of
Canadian Pacific was attributed to the
increasing opposition shown in various
iparts of the Dominion to the proposed
issue of new stock, together with the
absence of support from London, where
a holiday was being observed.
There was also some further activity
in Mexican petroleum but it was not
of primary importance and again suf
fered general neglect. The general
news was altogether encouraging. The
bank statement met popular expecta
tion showing an actual cash loss of
$7,475,00 and a decrease over $8,000,000
in net deposits which reduced the re

The strength of coppers and the
comparative weakness of railways
constituted the chief features of this

pointed to an increased demand at

able hopes of increased dividend 'disbursements.

Demosthenes was a Grecian citizen with great powers of endurance and a
record for plain and fancy oratory that never has been lowered on any
track. It is said of Demosthenes that he could start flat-footed with a cold
wing and orate until the janitor went home without hoars
ins up. His father was afflicted with a stutter which made
it impossible for him to answer the telephone without hav
ing to pay for overtime, and Demosthenes inherited this in
firmity, together with a pair of lungs which annoyed him
considerably by collapsing at the psychological moment
Demosthenes overcame these defects by going out behind
the barn and chinning himself on a horizontal bar, also by
throwing parts of speech into the teeth of a head wind.
This gave him a very durable ami penetrating speaking,
voice, which enabled him to precipitate his vocabulary
several miles in advance of his thought, a system which
sinc-e has come into general use. No other equipment being
required, he became a successful criminal lawyer, showing
his fairness and impartiality by taking a retainer from
both the plaintiff and the defendant. He made a specialty
of jK'rsonal injury cases and had his passes called in by
the railroads,
only lawyer
but did not murmer or repine. Demosthenes is said to be the

The sick insurance law of Norway
was enacted September 1 . 1009, find
amended April 1. 1911. but did not go
into effect until July 1. R'll.
The law embraces all wage earners
and public servants over fifteen years
nf ace whose vearlv earnings do not
exceed V-22 if in the rural districts, or
$375 in the cities. The 1 iw also pro

certain percentage (one-sixth) of the
premium while he is held responsible
for the whole, but may deduct from the
wages of the Insured, at the end of
term for which premium is paid, the
amount thus advanced. Theoretically,
it is self insurance on the contributive
plm, while actually it amounts to an
extra, tax upon the employer, as most
employes stipulate when engaging
their services that the insurance prem-

E. C. Savage Would Not Live in Phoe
nix for the Whole Town
When .P. V. Savage was about to
leave last night for the state of Maine
,he remarked rather savagely that he
would not live in Phoenix if he was
given the town. Xone of the bystan
ders offered him any additional in
ducement to remain and he proceeded
upon his journey.
The events of the day did not in
spire a popular belief that Mr. Sav
age would be a desirable citizen.
There was nothing' in his conduct that
would have led the most liberal to
give him a town lot to become a cit
izen of Phoenix.
He arrived from the north yesterday
morning and proceeded at once to get
"lit up-" Then he strolled into the
court house plaza and approached a
bench where two young married ladies
of Tempe were sitting. Mr. Savage
bowed and remarked that he was
seeking company and if the ladies had
no objection he would join them.
They moved away from him where
upon he assured them that he would,
not hurt them.
They rose from the bench when he
ordered them to lie seated and when
they had gone little farther he advised
them to "go to hell." Instead, they
went to the sheriff's office and de
scribed the polite attentions they had
received from a stranger. Deputy
Shriff Ponners went out with them
but by that time Savage had gone.
Tire officer found him a little later
in an automobile and took him be
fore Justice Johnstone who on a re
lation of the circumstances imposed a
fine of $15 with an alternative of fif
teen days in the county jail. He threw
in some personal remarks. Savage
paid his fine and went away. This
is said to be the fast gait justice ever
struck in this precinct.
It was this little episode, the offish-
ness of the ladies and the precipitation
of justice that impressed Mr. Savage
with the notion that he would not
care to live here.
