A man ln San Francisco hns been con victed nnd sentenced for fraudulent voting. But why pick on one man? Though Senator Clark's grand daughter Is worth a million dollars, doubtless she has much yet to cry about. Just about now Is when Count Witt* would look at a whole colony of those Portsmouth mosquitoes and say, "It Is to laugh." In seeking to serve some warrants for battery the police stumbled on an opium den. Haven't the police a few more battery warrants? The collapse of a Pico Heights house In the wind of yesterday and the night before is a testimony not so much to the strength of tho wind as to the in efficiency of the building. Too many flimsy houses are built here, anyhow. In the death of Kdward Wilder tne Santa Fe has lost one of its finest officials and the railroad world in gen eral one of its grandest old men. No smirch of scandal has ever been heard nbout the Santa Fe'« treasury; Edward Wilder was in charge. Abo Hummel, the notorious New York divorce lawyer, did not possess the legal lore to keep himself out of trouble, though muny's the actor or .•ictress ho has helped out of matri numy. ever played very near the ragged' edge; for once he seems to have slipped over. Judge H. B. Caldwell of tho United States circuit court is so charmed with Los Angeles and its delightful climate that he expects to make his home here. Judge Caldwell is a distinguished jur ist and Los Angeles will bid htm a most hearty welcome. He will find Plenty of good company here. Bob Fltzsimmons overlooked the proverb, "Old men for counsel, young men for action." Age has its limita tions and the doughty Bob may now retire in peace to his chimney corner, where, on rainy days, he may don his mitts for the edification of small boys and show how fields were won. The Redondo JJrcezr; has persu.vJed itself that if Los Angeles persists in the consolidation of city and county thine will be a new county formal in and around Redondo. Well, Hedondo lb a pretty lively beach town and al most anything Is* liable to happen in this land of sunshine. Hill street will in a short time join Broadway and Spring street i,n the beautiful illumination business. Mayor MeAleer will do his best to intervene, as uaua!, but that doesn't matter. The city council has a habit of exercising Its own will and pleasure and the pub lic is with the aldermen on this propo sition.

Los Angeles is doing its best to approximate a blizzard, but It ad mlts thut this Is aDout the wort t article It can hand out. Things will be warmed up now to the usual tern, f«ruture hereabout*. . TRASK FOR GOVERNOR There la every reason why Judge Ti. K. Trnak should be the Democratic nominee for governor of California. The mention of his natnp in that con nection ftt tho Tammany club banquet Wednesday night brought lnatntit and enthuslnctlc rrsponso, In tho midst of which tlm Judgo expressed n willing ness thus to serve his party and the people. And why should not the splendid Democracy of Southern California have n purprwe ntid n cundldnte. In the next stats Denioerntlo ronventlon? During Inany yearn thin portion of the slate has been content to Interest Itself In the perwonal ambitions of other sen tlons of the state, casting lts - volc3 hither and yon, with no special object In view except to bestow compliment* and maintain the general harmony. Tho time is at hand when tho party In Southern California, should exert its influence In its own behalf and sub mit for the consideration of" the state delegates the name of a Democrat who will carry the banner nearer to vic tory than perhaps nny other Democrat In California. Judge Trask's distinguished services en the bench, his ability as a Jifrlst, his standing fts a citizen and as n party man all qualify him for the dig nified offlce of governor. The ltepub llcan majority in Los Angeles county Is brutally largo, it Is true, but Judgv Trask as a candidate for governor woud give pause to the Republican vote and afford It nn opportunity to set away from Boss Herrln and Boss Parker and all other members of the Itepubllcan machine In this state. The judge Is not seeking the honor of a Democratic nomination for gov ernor nnd the mention of his name in that connection was more of a surprise to him than to any of his friends or associates. Hence, all the more reason why he is an available candidate. Let the Democrats of Southern Cali fornia unite in favor of Judge Trask, and honor themseleves with a definite purpose in the next state convention. Two Denver bankers of the frenzied finance type have been convicted and three more escape by telling on them. That jury should move to Chicago. BRAVE SAILOR DEAD Senator Prank P. Flint has headed a movement to erect a monument to the men killed in the Bennington dis aster at San Diego, and has introduced a bill in tho senate toward that end. The measure has met with favor and will probably become a law. It is fitting that the Bennington dead should be remembered. The men who met their fate on that gunboat as sure ly died for the nation as though they had perished in battle. It has been proved that the ship was not In perfect condition; and that she limped slowly home from Honolulu, and was even then en route to Mare Island, when it. blew up. The crew knew all this, yet they stood manfully by tho ship, and were on the point of taking her to sea again when the explosion came — merci fully, in harbor. Hence the heroism of the dead and saved cannot be ques tioned, and it should bo commemorated imperishably. And the government should do it. The government stands responsible, in the lust analysis, for the disaster. Proof of negligence has been adduced, in the case of the ship's engines and boilers, and she was reported unsea worthy. The government's smallest act can be to build over the unmarked graves of her sailor dead, on the wind swept hill near San Diego, a monument that for all time will mark the last resting place of her brave sailor men. Good building lots are scarce in Ocean Park, it is admitted, but it never was supposed that such a strin gency existed that one man had to put up his house on another man's prop: erty. Yet that has been done. "YOUNG MEN" CULT IL has been a great fad of late, amounting almost to ;i mania iv some cases, to declare that old men, men above 40, have no place in the strenu ous business life of today. The pressure Is too great, it is alleged;; th e duties are too onerous; the pace Is too Hwift. The man above 40 is said to be slug glsh-bloo;ded. slow of thought and ac tion, and unable to keep up with the demand. "Give us young men!" has be come the cry, carried almost to fanat icism. The steel trust magnate, Andrew Carnegie, has been the particular ad vocate of the young man cult, and his voice has been loudest in advo cacy of this belief. He has carried the theory into action, and both presi dents of tho present steel trust, the largest commercial organization on earth, have been of few years. Let us see how they have turned out. Charles M. Schwab, lirst president: Put In without adequate preparation puid $1,000,000 salary. Head turned! Uainbled with huge lohhoh and much Hcandiii at Monte Carlo. Mixed up in unsavory shipbuilding trust and other shady scheme*. Forced to resign in scmi-dlHgrat'o. W.

Took up with Alulielli) Oilman, actress, causing v mighty scandal, whose bounds uro only fixed by his threat to "peach" on his companions in the trust. Slated to be "fired" at first opportunity, Both these young men were hailed as the bright particular stars In the firmament of the young man cult. Both have turned out to be comets. Hashing meteorllke, to go out in dark ness. Meanwhile, thousands and thou sands of seasoned men of ripe years and experience are handling millions of dollars safely, sanely and without ostentation.

The mayor said the Iron work of halt of the Incinerator is completed and when the other work necessary on that half is finished it will have a capacity of 100 tons of garbage a day, and as übout six tons is nil that is being gath ered now, the half will take care of the garbage.

The invitation was ac cepted with thanks. EXTENSIVE ELECTRIC RAILROADS PLANNED SAN JOSE TO BE THE POINT OF DEPARTURE Peninsular Company Files Articles of Incorporation With Capital of $s,ooo,ooo— Total Mileage of New Lines Will Be 204 By Associated Press. SAN JOSE, Cal., Dec. 21.— Articles of incorporation of the Peninsular Railroad company were Wed with the county clerk here today. The corpora tion has been formed for the purpose of building electric roads from San Jose, as the point of departure, to San Francisco, through Stanford univer sity, Palo Alto, Kedwood City and San Jlateo, with a branch line to Los Gat os; also to the state Sernpervlrens park In the big basin; also to AlvJsu, Oakland and -Alameda; also to Alum Hock park and Lick observatory at the. summit of Mount Hamilton. The total mileage will be 204, and the capi tal stock is $5,000,000, of which $203,000 has been subscribed. The directors are O. A. Hale, F. E. Chapln, Gfus Lion, C. Andrews und A. E. Wilder. It Is intimated that the San Jose and Lo» UatOß company, of which O. A. Hale is the president, and also tho Mount Hamilton Exploitation com pany will be merged into the new cor poration. The latter company has two surveys to the summit of Mount Ham ilton, one by way of Evergreen and the other by way of Alum Rock. Tho new company's plans comprise the covering of the principal portion of the valley with electric lines, with this city as the center, and roads on both sides of the southern extension of the bay, terminating at San- Fran cisco on one side and at Oakland and Alameda or. the other. It is proposed, slates O. A. Hale, the head of the en terprise, to give frequent and rapid service on both sides of the bay, with stations about every half mile. The road into the big basin slate park will be an extension of the pres ent lnterurban line at Saratoga, a sur vey this past year with the view of constructing a county road showing that an easy grado over the summit can be procured for an electric line. The Mount Hamilton grude as surveyed by the exploitation company is also en easy lines. Mr. Halo states that work will begin first on the line to Han Franciaco, which will pans along the foothillH some miles west of the pit-sent Southern I'ueifii; line.

TIUINS THAT RUN IN DEMAND BY TOTS AT CHILDKEN'S HOSPITAL LITTLE PATIENTS PUT FAITH IN SANTA CLAUS Christmas Tree Looms Up as Great Treat for Little Ones and Old St. Nicholas Must Be Generous "i want n train that you can wind Up and It will go on trucks, that's what I wnnt Hnnta to brlnjr me," It was out nt tho Children's hospital, mid a doueu or more llttl<> tots wer» discussing ChiislmiiM mid Santa Cluua when a reporter walked Into the loom. y««terdiiy. The sweet faced matron hnd nn hOUticed h few minute* before that there wtist to bfl 0 f'hilsttnim tree at tho hdspllnl and tho children were titdiant over the idea. The boy who announced that ho wanted a train, "a resil train that will go," lay on a cot nt one end of the room. Tlm snowy white bed was hardly whiter tliini the little face that peeped from under tho coverlet. Two lingo blue eyra (lashed brightly in de lightful anticipation. "Did you sny it would really run?" came from n little fellow in the oppo site corner. He was just old enough to lisp and he also hud blue eyes, deep blue eyes with a, tender, patient ilght In them seldom seen tn those of n child. The little fellow propped him self up on his elbow that he might better look nt the child who knew till about trains thnt would run. Little faces all around that had be come., drawn with weeks— yes even months of suffering, begun to grow brighter. Some of them have never twHi Christmas, Home of them have seen Christmas, but it was an empty hiloday with few of the blessings thut ir.ore fortunate children enjoy. What wonder the tree loomed up bo brightly before them. Hopes for Santa Claus "Do you expect Hnnta to visit you?" the reporter asked of the boy who had first spoken. It was little Wallnce. known to tho nurses in the hospital ns the child who never complains. Wallace has spinal trouble and he wears a cast. It has been so long since he has been nble to run that the pang of bolng different from other boys has been softened by time. "I hope he will come, and I think perhaps he may bring me an automo bile that will run, too." "I'm going homo for Christmas, if I'm good— the nurse told me that ■ I might If I wns good. I don't know what I want Santa Claus to bring me." It was Fred who spoke. He is the oldest boy ln the hospital und for sev eral month* has been there with a crushed foot. The possibilities or home were oven brighter than the promised joys of a Christmas tree, and Fred is prepared to be good. The reporter turned to a little girl With an old, old face. Frieda is her name. Frieda Is the oldest girl In the hospital; she is eleven years of aga and is mother to all the others. It was almost bedtime and Frieda was busily engaged turning down the covers for the other children. She .went from /one white cot to another patting the", pillows and making things comfortable for her fellow sufferers. Concha, the little 2-year-old Mexican girl, began to cry. Frieda ran to her rescue. She seemed to divine at a glance that the baby wanted a drink music and the: drama Comic Opera at Mason "When Johnny Comes Marching Home," a military comic opera in two acts, opened n three nights' engage ment at the Mason opera house last evening. With an unusual amount of tuneful music by Julian Edwards, unique costumes, n liberal appeal to patriotism and a fall 1 company, the en tertainment proved a success and the small number of people who could be spared from Christmas shopping for the purpose of nn audience applauded in a manner that evidenced complete satisfaction. There is a large sprinkling of pretty girls and they are made doubly attract ive by the hoop skirts of the period presented. It is a comedy of the north and south In civil war times and, as is always the case, the southern girls, even to the rear rank of the chorus, fall in love with the members of the Invading army. Among the more prominent figures Jean Salisbury deserves special praise for her interpretation of Constance. Bertha Durel was the liveliest one on the stage und a great favorite with the audience. The others of the company were generally acceptable and the en semble selections were especially good. The music is more of the grand opera arrangement than of the popular order and their excellent rendering of this class of work speaks well for the di rector and the individual members of the chorus. ''Fabiola" Well Presented "Fablola," n play dealing with the early Christian timeß In pagan Home was staged last evening by St. Vin cent's Drumutlo club, with admirable success. The play had been rearranged by ltev. F. X. McCabe, O. M., from Canon Oakley's version of the novel by the same name by Cardinal Wise man, und ns given last night proved a great success. Father MeCa.be hud eliminated muny of the obstacles to Its production, while closely adhering to thi! text of the play. Tho parts of "Kablola," '.'Syra," "Agnes" and "Fulvlus" were well played by Missew Kstelle le Kage, Agnes Brown and Mildred Talcott, und Mar cus Scott.

Perhaps that Is why the children In the hospital all lovo her bo. Sho knows Jiift bow tn mnke them happy when they are tired and feel as If they want ed 'iiinmni;!.' " "That little bnby over in tho corner Is my little bother Karl," sho said, pointing to a child of two years. "1 VJint Santa Claua to remember him, too. I wish mamma could come to see me on Christmas, but liaby Karl cries so much when mamma leaves him thut we think it better sho should not come." Frieda run nwny to help with supper for the younger ones, and the reporter went Into another room. Little Louie wants a train and he also wants Santa to bring him a little horse nnd wagon, v drum und a horn. Louie Is one of tho black haired and brown eyed type and ho has hip trouble. Ills companion In the room, a wee tot of live years, was willing to leave everything to the superior judgment of Santa Claus, but he also would like what Louie wants. Willie Is his mime nnd he has only been in the hospital a week. "Will you be here very long?" asked the reporter. "Yes," was the simple answer, nnd two blue eyes began to fill up with tears. Willie brushed them manfully away. He tried to think of something pleasanter. "Mamma Is coming to see me on Sun day," he said. "I wish Sunday was Christmas because I would like to see mamma on Christmas." Willies face is a study, with every feature clear cut and delicate as a girl's. Willie took the reporter's hand and poured out his troubles. Because it is such a little heart Is no reason that it does not know how to ache, but Willie is brave. "Won't you come again," he said, ns ho put up his face to be kissed, and then he smiled and called "Merry Christmas." Pablo, a six-year-old Mexican boy. Is another who is willing to trust ev erything lo Santa. Jumbo, a Mexican baby, whoso only word of English is "yes," seems to have a vague idea about the wonders of Santa Claus. Every question brought forth from him a happy, childish laugh and a "yes." Anything will suit Jumbo, if ho is just given a chance to say "yes." There are. seventeen children in the hospltul ranging in age from the baby so tiny that it cannot even lisp to Frieda, the old, old child of eleven years. There is going to be a Christmas tree at the hospital. What will go on the tree will depend on the generositj of Santa Claus.
