It is estimated by Mr. Mulhall in a re
cent article in The Contemporary Review
that the shipping of all nations is of the
appoximate value of $1,100,000,000, while
the 110,000 locomotives at work represent
a value of $1,000,000,000. The railways
give employment to 2,394,000 people,
while shipping employs only 705,000. The
life of a locomotive is 15 years. It
will run 270,000 miles, carry 600,000 tons,
or 1,000.000 passengers, and earn $300,000.
Its tirst cost is $10,000 and its general
average is 300 horse-power. The average
life of a ship and its earning capacity,
compared with its cost, is not given, and
is perhaps not yet computed, but it is
not likely to equal or approach that of the
locomotive, which may fairly rank as the
most potent instrument of civilization
ever devised by man.
The Bell Telephone Company and other
monopolies are trying to get two bills
through Congress for purposes of extor
The law limits the life of patents to 17
years. It provides, however, that where
an invention is iirst patented abroad tbe
American patent shall not outlive the
shortest of the foreign patents. Under
this law the public has a prospect of
early rescue from the extortion of tbe
Bell Telephone Company monopoly and
some other similarly oppressive combina
But in order to prolong its monopoly
the Bell Telephone Company is supporting
in the courts a refrigerator patent suit,
unimportant in itself, but important in
what it involves. In that suit it is con.
tended that a patent in this country does
not expire with the expiration of a pre
viously granted foreign patent if the
American patent was applied for before
the foreign patent was granted. A de
cision to that effect would be worth many
millions to the Bell Telephone people—
every dollar of which would be extorted
from the public.
But the decision of the Supreme Court
may be adverse. So the patent monopo
lists have had two bills—N'os. 0301 aud
6098—introduced in Congress to accom
plish the same thing by a statutory
change. The New York World is out
spoken in its demand that these bills shall
be beaten, arguing that a patent is a gov
ernment grant of monopoly and that the
only excuse there can be for such a grant
is that it stimulates invention by re
warding It, and that by granting to in
ventors v monopoly fur a term of years
the public gains advantage in the end.
But the term prescribed by law, even un
der the most rigid construction of the
statutes, is ample, as experience shows,
to accomplish all the good aimed at.
There should certainly be no extension of
monopoly at the prayer of a concern like
the Bell Telephone Company, which has
paid annual returns of several thousand
per cent on its investment, and which
uses its monopoly with an absolutely
shameless arrogance for purposes of con
tinually increasing extortion.
Congress should certainly not remove
any limitation tiiat the law now imposes
upon patent monopoly.

--154,364. Of the general result the l'Mnan
cial Chronicle says: "A vtry satisfactory
feature in the statement this time is the
improved results at the Eastern monetary
and manufacturing centers, some of which
have previously been lagging behind. Of
course at New York, where the increase
has been 10.6 percent,the transactions con
nected with the organization of the Brook
lyn Wharf and Warehouse Company have
bad an effect in swelling the totals. But at
some of the other points in the seaboard
section the gains are even larger, Phila
delphia recording 15 per cent gain, Wash
ington 17 percent, Rochester 10.1 per
cent and Scranton 12.5 per cent. There
are two small points which show a de
crease—namely nt Wilmington and Bing
hamton, the latter 5.2 percent, but the
aggregate for the whole Middle States
section records 10.7 per cent increase.
The New England group shows only 4
per cent increase, and at Lowell and New
Bedford there are losses; but at Provi
dence there is 13.6 per cent increase, at
Springfield 10.4 per cent and at Worcester
14.1. In the Middle Western section the
comparisons are, as a rule, quite good,
and the total for the section is 5.4 better
than a year ago. Some of the far Western
points, however, show the effects of the
crop failure.
According to the Chronicle, the story of
the Panama Canal swindle, the Credit
Mobilier and the old Contract and Finance
Committee Of the Central Pacific sink into
insignificance and appear the work of
mere bungling amateurs in the now exact
science of financial wrecking, when com
pared with the clean-cut, high-grade rob
bery perpetrated by the people who con
trol the Market Street Railway Company.
This corporation was organized in 1893.
It was a combine amalgamation of
other street car lines in San Francisco,
and controlled one hundred and fifty miles
of street car franchises over the most im
portant streets in San Francisco.
At the time of tbe amalgama
tion in 1893 the combined roads had
a bonded indebtedness of $7,03">,000. Tbe
new company was organized and manipu
lated by the owners of the Southern
Pacific Railroad Company and almost its
first act was to bond the combined street
car lines for $17,500,0J0, netting on this
little transaction alone over $10,465,000.
It is true that the Union Trust Company
is only to pay over the $10,4155,000 as it
may be needed for betterments or new
roads, but then the betterments will be
made and the new lines built by the
Pacific Improvement Company, and this
of course, means tbat the $10,465,000 will
be scientifically absorbed. According to
the Chronicle, in the tirst deed made to
the Union Trust Company the mileage is
set forth as 175 miles, whereas in reality
it is less than 150, and some of that is
over streets the franchise to which has
lapsed; but taking the 175 miles as the
true statement-the new road is bonded for
over $100,000" per mile, and taking
the true mileage, at over $200,000
per mile. In addition it appears that the
description of the property, as set forth
in the trust deed, is so faulty that it would
be difficult to determine whether the
property proposed to lie transferred was in
the neighborhood of Wei Hai Wei or the j
1 city of San Francisco. The thoughtful
ness of the board of directors is shown in
the fact that they are required by a pro
vision adopted by themselves to set apart
in 1918, as a sinking fund, the sum of
$160,000, and the same sum each year
thcreafteruntil 1924, when the whole sum
of $17,500,000 becomes due. From 1918 to
1924 is just six years, and if $160,000 is set
apart each year, $960,000 will have been
accumulated to pay off $17,500,000 due in
It is entirely probable that the original
bonded indebtedness of $7,033,000 repre
sented just double what it cost to build
and equip the roads In the combine, but
this steal did not satisfy the Southern
Pacific manipulators who obtained con
trol in 1893, for they promptly added to it
$10,46"), 000 more.
If live cents a fare enables the Market
Street Railway Company to pay interest
on $17,. r )00,003 bonded indebtedness, $14,
--983,000 ol which was a cold steal, and pay
dividends to its stockholders besides, at
what rate could the company afford to
carry passengers allowing 10 per cent in
terest on the real amount invested In the
roads? This problem is respectfully sub
mitted to the Board of Supervisors of San
Francisco, or if that respectable body has
not jurisdiction of the matter, to the Leg
islature now in session in Sacramento.
The bondholders will have submitted to
them In 1924 probably some such proposi
tion as the Reilly refunding bill, and
if they do not accept it they will have to
take the roads, the franchises of which
will be expiring about that time.
The California delegation in Congress
is urging the President to appoint Hon.
R. F. del Valle as successor to the late
Minister to Mexico.
The appointment of Mr. del Valle would
bo a graceful recognition, on the part of
the administration, of the claims of the
Pacific Coast to at least one lirst-class
foreign mission, and the appointment of
Mr. del Valle would be a peculiarly fitting
one, both because he is a Californian and
a man of ability and because bis knowl
edge of Mexico and its people would at
once bring him in touch with young,
progressive Mexico, the element which
now rules that republic, thereby leading
to better relations between the two ruling
powers of this continent.
Where Women Fall
The women of today are really wonderfu', in
Their conversation indicates the solid books
they read;
They're deeply versed in politics, in science
aud lv art;
In fact, they've learned most everything worth
learning all by heart.
Nature to them is an open book, and earth and
sen and sky
Have not a secret hidden from their penetrat
ing eye;
There's not a problem so complex but what it
qu ekly tinds
How easily they can solve it with their vast,
transparent minds.
Bravo! say we, and may the «ex press onward
still and higher;
May clearer, deeper, grander thoughts their
purposes inspire.
But when these women who so much ol knowl
edge have acquired
Get off a street car backward, then they make
us awful tired.

Only a few years ago the Japanese Leg
islature was "extremely unruly, and the
Mikado was forced to dissolve the Parlia
ment as recently as the spring of last
year. Today the people give consent to
every measure of the Government, and
every one acknowledges that this is in a
large degree due to the recent successes
in the war with China. This war would
have turned out less advantageously
had not Japan possessed a man who,
like Bismarck, reorganized the defenses
of the country in spite of parliamentary
opposition. That man is Count Ito, tiie
Japanese Premier. The Tageblatt, Ber
lin, contains an interesting sketch of his
life, from which we take the following:
"Count Ito is a scion of an old aristo
cratic Jupanese family, and entered at
an early age the army of the Shiogun,
who then ruled supreme in Japan. Ito
and his friend Inonye, who has now been
sent to reform the administration of
Corea, belonged to the anti-foreign party,
for they hail been told since their infancy
that the puleifaced barbarians would ruin
the country. The foreigners then lived
nearly all in Yokohama, and the two
young lire-eaters, burning with patriot
ism, conceived the plan to kill the bar
barians. They left Tokio with a hundred
men carry out- this ■ wild idea, but were
discovered, and barely escaped detection,
when, during the night, they fought
their way through the soldiers that had
surrounded them. They soon learned
that the execution of their plans would
have involved the country in a war with
England, and that a victory in such a
struggle was only possible if Japan pos
sessed big ships and guns. Ito anil Inonye
then asked Prince Clioshun, their chief,
permission to go to England, to study
the maneuvers of the enemy, inspect
their arsenals, and obtain the secret of
their sea power. Their money was sent
to Shanghai, with orders to transmit it to
London, but the instructions to the
Shanghai agent were not very clear, and
he shipped them as common sailors to
England, instead of obtaining berths for
them as passengers. Arrived at London,
the crew left the ship, with the exception
of the two young Japanese, whose agent,
had not yet come to receive them. That
day was the darkest in their life. They
had a dollar left and went to buy some
bread, and the baker seeing that the
strangers did not know the value of the
coin, did not. give them change. Luckily
the agent came the next day, and they
commenced tlieir studies of European in
"After many Strange adventures they
returned to Japan, where, in the meantime,
the enmity against the foreigner* hud
increased* When the two travelers related
that the foreigners were just as brave as
the Japanese, and much more powerful,
the Shiogun's men treated Ito and Inonye
as traitors, and the hitter was attacked
onej evening by a mob and left for dead
upon tiie ground. His mother's nurs
ing brought him around, but his lace
shows to this day the sears of the wounds
received during that night.
"A revolution noon after removed the
Shlogun from power, the Mikado be
came the ruler i deed as well as iv name,
and the two travelers, especially Count
Ito, rose rapidly to influence and fame.
"He has now directed the affairs of his
country for many years. His first
thought after the occupation of Corea
was to open that country to western civil
ization, and it is quit* possible that this
far-seeing spirit intends already similar
reforms for China. That Japan had in
tended to go to war is amply proved by
the manner in which" military author
ities executed their task. Everything
worked so admirably that 100,000 men
could lie shipped from Japan without dis
turbing the social or commercial life of
the country. It is also very characteristic
that the iroops did not only go abroad
well provided with arms and ammunition,
but had all such modern appliances as
telephonic and telegraphic instruments.
Moreover, while the Chinese army of
occupation in t'orca reduced the people
to beggary, the Japanese took their pro
visions with them and had thousands of
coolies to transport their language.
"What a lively political spirit there is in
these people I Not only the government,
but the opposition parties also sent their
reporters in order to obtain political ad
vantages through the news from the seat
of war. Nearly all newspapers, too, have
their special correspondents. But Count
Ito has Increased the censorship, and the
newspapers have been warned that they
will be confiscated if caught publishing
news without the consent of the censors.
"Count tto shows much interest in the
industrial development of his fatherland.
He believes most foreigners underrate
the chances of Japan in the international
struggle for international supremacy.
Tbe Jpaanese women, be thinks, are
equal to the men in every field of labor,
anil double the capacity, for work of the na
tion. It is not too much to sny that the
time is near when the last vestige of bar
barism will have vanished from Japan.
"11l no little measure this change is due
to the exertions of her great statesman
Ito, the Bismarck of Japan."

Who Will Succeed Hale ?
There has been a good deal of talk
around the Capitol during the past few
days to the effect that Warden Hale will
not be reappointed in charge of San Quen
tin, but that the place will go to Senator
Seymour of San Bernardino.
■"'I have not made any application for
the place," said the Senator, today, "but
I have been mentioned for it, and have
been urged to go into the race. I have
been interested in prison work for many
years past, and my hobby is a reformatory
where iirst offenders shall be confined. I

Excursion Party Socials
A novel form of entertainment was re
cently given at the residence of a well
known Atlanta, (la., lady, which may
prove a valuable hint to hostesses who
desire to entertain. It was called an ex
cursion party, and when the guests had
all assembled a gentleman attired as a pal
ace car conductor appeared and announced
the time the train would leave. Then
there was a rush for tickets nt the ticket
office, which had been attractively fitted
up for the occasion. Each passenger re
ceived an unlimited ticket with coupons,
aud all took seats in the dining room. On
the ticket was written something about
each of the eighteen stations, and the
game consisted in guessing the name of
each station from what was written. For
instance, the eighth station was "a city
whose end and aim is go." This, of
course, was Chicago, but most of them
were more difficult to guess. Those guess
ing the greatest number of stations cor
rectly were awarded prizes.
