SACRAMENTO COUNTY has put herself in the van of the movement for good roads by voting to issue bonds for the construction of the Folsom boulevard. While in other communities road improvement remains a matter of talk and speculation, la Sacramento it has taken the form of action. The money has been voted and the work will soon begin. What has been accomplished In Sacramento may be ac counted a victory for progress throughout the State. The influence of the work there will be fell in every community where good roads a;e needed. The campaign for better high ways will be carried forward with more hopefulness and in creased energy, and the construction of the Folsom boulevard will serve both as an incentive to similar enterprises elsewhere and as a model for them to follow. From.the moment the proposed road was projected The Call took a warm interest in it, and treated it as it deserved as one', of.the most important movements of the time in the State.. Our reports from Sacramento followed closely all the proceedings of the canvass leading to the bond election, and our correspondent kept in close touch, not only with the leaders, butjwifh the masses, so that we were able to forecast the result a week ago and 'announce the coming victory for progress and enterprise.. .* As The Call. was an earnest worker for the improvement and warmly advocated the bond issue, just r.s It advocates and works for improvements and enterprises in ail parts of the State, it Las right to a share in the rejoicing over the victory. The. straggle has been a hard one, but the success achieved is great enough to repay it. The bondage of silurianism has been broken in the county, and now that the forward march has be gun it -is a. sure thing that other improvements will bs under taken and carried to a rapid completion. There can be no question that the boulevard will be of great benefit to Sacramento. It will be one of the noted highways of the State. Every visitor to the capital will b3 enticed by it to drive through the rural districts and see the attractions they offer to investors and home-seekers. As soon as these benefits are felt good roads will be demanded in all parts of the county, and before long even those who have been opposed to voting money for the boulevard will acknowledge that thanks are dua to the men of light and leadership whose public spirit prompted them to undertake this project, and whose energy, tact and perse verance enabled them to overcome the sluggish torpor of silur ianism an win the victory of yesterday. WHAT WILL THE COMMITTEE DO? THE Citizens' Charter Committee of One Hundred is in an unenviable situation. The nominees for freeholders of its charter convention are being supported by the furtive morning organ of the railroad. We are assured that this sap port is being given in opposition to the wishes of a large ma jority of the committee. That it is being promoted by a few mousing politicians in the committee who, for seme unex plained, but probably sufficient reason, do not object to supply ing the material upon which to base new-paper contracts with the Southern Pacific, is apparent from the way it is being car ried on. • These same freeholders, on the other hand, are being op posed by the evening organ of the corporation, which, how ever, claims to represent the Committee of One Hundred as a body. This organ gave conscious »evidence of its affiliation on Thursday evening by announcing with becoming gravity that the members of the committee "will present a ticket of free holders." And then it added: "This action is to be com mended, not because it possesses the merit of being regular political metheds, or as free from the charge of distrust of the people, but because the Committee of One Hundred will choose fifteen good men and add to the list of those to whom an elec tion.is possible." -' We do not wish to pry too deeply into the business of the Citizens' Committee. That body is composed of intelligent men who ought to know what they are doing. But we respect fully call the attention of its members to the fact that unless the committee takes some action toward repudiating the assumed leadership of the Examiner and the Evening Post, it is certain to lose its character. The latter declares its organshlp by making a formal announcement of what appears to be con templated action by the committee. The Litter openly sup ports its nominees for freeholders, and in doing so, impugns the motive* and assails the character of all other nominees. What the public demands to know at the present moment this: Has the Committee of One Hundred reached an under standing with the Examiner, the Post, the corporations and the Buckley Damocrats? If it has not, why does it permit them all to support its freeholder ticket, convey confidential informa tion of its business to the public, "do" dirty politics under its protecting a-jis, and earn corporation fees by masquerading in its respectable name? We think the committee owes it to the people to either repudiate this corporation conspiracy to defeat a new charter, or come out boldly and say that bood c journal ism and Buckley politics accord with its reformatory ten dencies. If the committee desires to see the Examiner's contract with the Southern Pacific, it can get a look at it by applying to C. P. Huntington. If it desires to ascertain the business relations of the evening organ of the conspiracy to the corporations, it need only read it for afevdays. If it wishes to find out all about the Buckley Democrats— but that is a continued story in itself. . An esteemed but erring contemporary declares that The Call's story exposing the methods of bunko men was a fake, a sensation, and that it was pricked by Chief Lses. On the con trary, the story was (ruth. ' It may have been something of a . sensation, but it was not pricked by Chief Lees; it pricked the Chief. . There will be twenty contests over seats in the House, and almost all of them between different brands of Democrats. While these patriotic gentlemen aie ; fighting over the spoils the Republicans will have a chance to do some legislation, to say nothing of the fun of watching the other side pulling hair. London is wondering if yellow journalism intends invad ing Cube. Let it be honed that the implied possibility rests upon nothing. Cuba has already experienced all she deserves of the horrors of war. ' ; ; ■'.;.* One "sure-thing"' man at Portland has killed another. In this circumstance is a suggestion of a way to solve a difficult problem. ' Some of the opponents of McKenna.do not seem to realize that they are subjecting their own' 'ambition to indecent ex posure. FEEDING AN OLD GRUDGE. THE revelations of the last twenty-four hours expose the origin of tho attack on Judge McKenna. The matter smarted in the Portland law office of ex-Senator and ex- Attorney-General George H. Williams. General Williams had his day and approached ana passed through his opportunity He was a Senator of the United States for the State of Oregon" He was appointed Attorney-General by Grant and was nomi nated for transfer to the Supremo bench, but failed of confirma tion. The circumstances were such as to plant a peculiar sting in the ambitions of the ex-Senator. It is a rule of courtesy in the Senate that when a man who has been a member of that body is nominated for an office by the Piesident he is confirmed without reference of the nomination to a committee. When this rule is not observed it is the- most serious rebuke that can be given a public man. We need not enter into the reasons that influenced the Senate in the case of General Williams. The affair permanently retired him from public life and left him with a grudge that seems to have grown old with him. in this ancient matter starts the fire that has becomes conflagration in the abundance of combustible material that is always ready Jor the match in the share of the nascent or moribund ambitions which abound in thess Pacific States. The disappointment which tuts the- stone of stumbling before the feet of others to block success in the path where it failed, and the egotism of expectation which hopes to succeed lesß by merit than by the destruction of others who are ahead in the line of preferment, teem to have joined hands to embarrass the administration and bring on a contest for the discomfiture of Judge McKenna. We do not hesitate to say that, considered in its origin and its motive, the movement is unworthy and undeserving of con sideration by the President or the Senate. The latter body passed judgment ones on General Williams-, and his present method of securing a new trial by th) sacrifice of Judge McKenna is not likely to command its favor. It is probable that the extent and limits of the attack are now known, as well as its motive. Our public history furnishes many cases of such assault on men. Up to the middle of his career Grant's military ability was contested. His re-entry into the service from civil life, the humble rank at first taken by him, all were used, and to this day there are men who will tell how differently and better they would have done, in some action, than Grant, had they been there. If Judge McKenna were a stranger to the President, if his career had been passed in a corner, if political intrigue had picked him out of obscurity for this great elevation, we might lose sight of the motive of the opposition in the probabilities of Its justification as aeainstan unknown man. But these elements are absent. The President is a lawyer, soundly trained, has had long public experience, is equipped completely for judgment of the ability of men. His familiarity with Judge McKenna's quality and ability is of years' standing. Trie men are in that intimacy which comes of the progressive apprecia- lion by one of the ability of fhe other. Under such circum stances Judge McKenna's selection by the President carries with it every high presumption against the sinister charge tba ( starts in a Portland law office and spreads, like moral arson, along the path, of combustible ambition and detraction into this State. CALIFORNIA UP TO DATE. CALIFORNIA up to date wi'l be at once the subject and the inspiration of the "new era edition" of The Call. The whole paper will bs devoted to the conditions that are vital, to issues that are living, to men who have blood in them. There will be no old stories of the old missions of bygone days, but a bright new story of the everlasting mission of California and her people as made manifest by the activities of to-day. It is the design to make the edition worthy In every way of the greatness of the theme. Every feature will be attended to with painstaking care by men who are recognized masters of that department of the work. Neither energy, skill nor ex pense is to be spared in producing the best edition of a news paper ever published, In order that it may fitly serve Loth as a Guarantee of the promises ot the new era of The Call and an advertisement to the world of the prospects of tbe new era in California. • Special articles on the resources and Industries of the State are now being prepared for the edition by men who are rec ognized as authorities in their lines of work. The list of con tributors of these special articles includes most oi the famous names in the State. Among them are men eminent in the universities and in business, in practice and in theory. Their papers will repay not only careful reading, but earnest study, for each of them will deal with some subject of interest and profit to the people at this time. The most striKing feature of recent development in jour nalism is the pictorial work, «nd particular attention will be paid to it in the grand edition. Beginning a comparatively few years ago with crude sketches the newspapers of the United States have so advanced the art of pictorial reporting that to-day the artists of the daily papers are in some respects superior io the much-lauded artists of the magazines. The Call has long enjoyed an enviable reputation for the excel lence of its wont of this kind, and in the forthcoming edition will accomplish results that will mark a new era in that at tractive and valuable feature of journalism. One of the most artistic features of the edition will be the richly illuminated covers. In accordance with The Call's set tled policy of patronizing home industry and home talent these covers are to be made in San Francisco. The order for them is the largest ever placed on this coast, and the artists and printers entrusted with the work will emulate the civic patriotism of The Call and make them masterpieces of their kind, fully equal to anything produced in the East.

THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1897. THE AUSTRIAN CRISIS. COUNT BADENI is doubtless rejoicing at his home in Galicfa that he is no longer Prime Minister of Austria, while his successor, Count Gautsch yon Frankenthurm, in the ministerial palace at Vienna, is in all likelihood cursing the fate that has imposed upon him the task of setting right a nation out of joint. . « •;' The retirement of the former Ministry, so far from appeas ing the angry factions of the Reichsrath, has only increased the excitements of the empire. The turbulent scenes in the faruament-house have been followed by riots among the peo ple, and in several parts of the country the disturbances would have troken out into civil war but for the restraining power of the army. The issue on which Baden! went to pieces was a simple one in itsolf, beinp merely an arrangement with Hungary as to what part of the expenses of the dual empire should be borne by Austria and what part by Hungary. .Badeni was willing to accept the terms proposed by Hungary, but in order to get them adopted by the Reichsrath he nad to . grant certain favors to the Czechs of Bohemia in return for their votes. These favors to the Czechs roused the wrath of the Germans, ana one antagonism leading to another, all the race hostilities of Germans, Poles, Czechs end Slavs broke loose, and these in turn excited the religious parties, with tbe result of confusion worse confounded in the Government and pandemonium in the Reichsratti. Acconing to an analysis of the situation recently given from a German point of view by the Cologne Times, there are in the Austrian Parliament no less' than six parties dominated by race views, and each of these is divided into factions by con siderations of Catholicism, Liberalism, Socialism, Semitism and Indepcndentism. While 213 votes are necessary to constitute a bare majority in the Reichsrath, no one of the parties or fac tions has more than sixty votes, and only one of them, the Young Czechs, has so many. An Austrian Prime Minister has to be, therefore, a great organiser of combinations. If he can not get three or four hostile groups to work together for the purpose of throwing down three or four others equally hostile, he fails in his work and has to retire. to his estates. While the Austrian part of the empire has thus been torn by dissensions. Hungary has waited with exemplary patience for an acceptance or rejection ot her proposals with respect to the Imperial exDenses... This patience, so unusual to the fiery Huns, seems about to be exhausted. On Friday Franz Kossuth asked the Prime Minister whether under certain circumstance? he would not enforce the right of Hungary to act as a free agent in settling her economic relations with Austria, and the Prime Minister has promised a reply on Monday. It is apparent, therefore, that the crisis is at hand. If the Hungarians break away at this juncture the end of Austria, the last vestige of the Holy Roman Empire, will be accomplished. QALLANT^Y ON JHE CAJ^S. THE article on "Gallantry on the Cars" In last Sunday's Call recalls to my mind similar experiences of my own during my travels la and around San Francisco, and I agiej with the writer when she says that south of Market street "they do give up seats In the car." A few times* 1 have been given a seat when on the cars north of Market street, but it baa always been by the man who Is of "tho masses," and 1 generally find It the rule and not the exception that the laboring man the one win respects the woman and not the arts* In a crowded streetcar here in fan Fran cisco. V ' .'-' --; Will the new woman arise to tho occasion and proffer her seat in a crowded car to a man tired from his day's work ? Very apropos are the following lines which I once clipped from the Brooklyn Eagle. vis. : Ouo day in a crowded Fifth-avenue car A lady was standing. She had ridden quite far, Aud seemed much disposed to Indulge in a frown As nobody offered to lot her sit down. And many there sat, to judge by their dress, Might a gentleman's natural instinct possess. But who, Judged by their acts, make us firmly believe That appearances will often sadly deceive. There were some most intently devouring the news, And some through the windows enjoying the views; And others Indulged In a make-believe nap, While the lady still stood holding oh to the strap. At last a young Irishman, fresh from the -'sod," " Arose with a smile and a most comical nod. Which said quite as plain as in words could be stated. That the lady should fit in the place he'd vacated. " Excuse me," said Pat. "that I caused you to wait bo long before offenu' to give you & sate. But in truth 1 was only jmt waiting to see If there wasn't more gintlcmln here besides me." San Francisco, Dec. 1. 1997. Addie F. Babtlky.

Baron yon Holleben, Germany's new Embassador to the United States, bears on his face the scars of twenty-one duels he fought while at Heidelberg. Dueling is much in fashion at the university, and the Baron being famous for his skill was constantly challenged, while he hlmseif lost no opportunity to fight. His face shows his record and great long gashes made by sword cuts disfigure his coun tenance. KRIS KRINGLE AND THE EMPEROR. An Interesting article in the December Ladles' Home Journal de scribes a Christmas with the German Emperor and his family in the palace at Potsdam. "After the trees— one for each of the family have been arranged, and all is in readiness," says the writer, Xagel yon Brawo, "the little princess, accompanied by her next younger brother, opens the solemn procession into the Shell salon, which Is ablaze with light. For a moment they halt; the flooding .lights are almost blinding, since to the illumination of the Christmas trees is added the brilliance of the many chandeliers with their multiplicity of branches. Another short pause in the center of the room. '1 wo of her brothers each take the little princess by the hand and conduct her with gallantry to her special table before turning away to their own. What delight! What rejoicings ! Verily, in tho most perfect interpretation of tne word this constitutes vouth-Jul joy fulness. The Emperor, waving conducted the ladies and gentlemen of the court to the tables arranged for them, leads the Empress to their Majesties' tables, and the hearty demonstrations of pleasure which they ex change evince the loving care taken in their mutual selection of gifts. "But they do not linger long over their own gifts. Tne joy ot the children grows more m-d more lively. The princes show one another their new treasures. Prince Eltel Friedrich invites the Crown Prince to visit his fine water-light lent, while the latter mounts a bicycle of whi m hE man ", aclure - Prince Adalbert, puts on his new snowshoes, which he would greatly like to try at once in the park; and beside nim his younger brother, Prince August, turns the leaves of an illus trated book of the Berlin Exhibition of Industrial Arts, to which he made *' , 1 -. Prince Oscar mount* the tin soldiers over the strongly fortified citadel of papier inache which Prince Joachim is preparing to attack with his splendid artillery and its nickel cannon; the dried peas already rattle against the leaden gates of the fortress. Victoria Louise is happily seated amid her miniature doll's household, in specting the numerous toilettes of the blonde doll which can say Papa* and 'Mama' with great precision. Repeatedly the Imperial mother is called upon by her youngest child to examine and admire treasures she had herself selected with so much care." HE IS A-MER-I-CAN. New York World.
