It has been approved by the . ratified by the Legislature and con- Supreme Court. It has been sub- ■ trial known to our laws and has been upheld at every test. All doubts as to its :;>ated. The new charter is to be the organic law of the city and the affairs of the administered in accord with • s by the officers who are to be elected this : Jh< iurt will be received with gen eral gratification. Years have passed since the ef in to obtain a charter com mensurate with the needs of the city and framed in c with the popular desire, and thousands en expended in the various at tempts to obtain one. It would therefore have been a serious loss to the community had the Supreme Court found the new instrument defective in any particular or invalid upon any ground whatever. By the decision the atmosphere has been cleared of the last lingering opposition to the charter. The avenues of municipal reform, improvement and progress provided by it are now open and secure. The one duty that remains to the people is to elect officers who will wisely administer the powers which will be theirs when placed in ofrice. That is the issue of the campaign. The charter is secure and now let us make good government under it equally secure by electing men who are to be counted on to apply it with wisdom, public spirit, economy and civic patriotism. For some time past certain Democratic politicians and papers have claimed the charter as a Democratic production. The claim has had no foundation in fact and has never deceived intelligent citizens, who are aware that when submitted to the vote of the people the charter was sustained by votes cast in Republican districts and was ratified by a Republican Legisla ture. All that, however, is now out of the question. The decision of the Supreme Court takes the char ter out oNthe domain of controversy and makes it the constitution of the municipality, the law of the whole people. Nothing but demagogy can attempt to make it a partisan issue and none but the dupes of demagogues will be misled by such attempt!. Miss Jane Dwyer, a local medium, has complained to the police that some person sent her through the mails a box of chocolate creams loaded with blue !, with the evident intention of poisoning her. A chemist, who examined the poisoned candy, says there was just enough bluestone to make a gooll emetic, and the police are now of the belief that a business rival of Miss Dwyer was taking this means of making her yield up some spook secrets. The policy of expansion is making an insidious progress in every direction. Two very estimable citizens of Sacramento have discovered that the town is not big enough for both of them and now one pro poses to carve or club or shoot the other. The pro posal, at latest reports, had not been accepted. A dusky but charming representative of deposed South Sea royalty, who Is among us, says that the title of Queen or Princess never troubled her. She neglected to add, however, that it created all sorts ot a row among other worthy and well-meaning people. The inconvenience of relatives has again been strikingly demonstrated. The Emperor of Germany is afraid to visit England because the world might think that he is sympathizing with his grandmamma in her war with the Boers. lount chief of the Basutos has been get . into print a great deal of late. That's the way with those paramount fellows ever since Blount's time. THE TRAFFIC ASSOCIATION. WE have called attention to the organization of the mercantile interests of this coast in a Traffic Association, which promises to co operate with transportation interests in such way as to protect the coast trade by giving it stability. The Eastern jobbers have long sought to locate the distribution of our trade at any point most con venient to them, east of the mountains, From such point they desire to reach the retail trade here direct. To this end they have sought to powerfully impress transportation, to force such a rate on less than car lots of merchandise and to secure such changes in classification as will enable them to add to their posi tion of wholesalers at home the advantage of being peddlers here. From its beginning they have sought to put the Interstate Commerce Commission in a hypnotized atmosphere, hoping that it would see nothing but distributing points East, and West noth ing but a country to be distributed to, clear to the Pacific Ocean. It has not been altogether an accident that this coast has had no representative on that commission. None of the present members comes from this side of the Missouri. Mr. Youmans of Sioux City is called the Western member, and if he represent us he has almost the world for a parish, and his parishioners see but little of him. It should be the aim of the Traffic Association to co-opetate with the railroads in securing a Commis on this coast who sees through coast eyes and interests. We use the word co-operate advisedly and with deliberation. The interests of commerce will not be served by the appointment of any man who sees in railroads the sum of all villainies nor the sum of all virtue-. He should be a man who ex pect? to find Western transportation, overland and local, alive to the fact that it has interests in common the coast production and distribution. The railroads want to have the business of mer chants, not of peddlers. To do this they want all the advantages of the fourth clause of the interstate com merce law, which protects the ton per mile rate on the long haul, for our overland roads have the long est haul on the continent. These roads are at pres ent in a position to aid in making Pacific ports the jobbing points in Asiatic trade. By water we have an advantage of from 5000 to 7000 miles in that trade over Xew York. While this advantage subsists there is no reason why we should not be permitted to add to that the land mileage of 2500 miles to Chicago, or 3500 to New York, and so carry that trade from here. Even then we bring its Asiatic source nearer to New York by combined water and rail than she . water alone. So, instead of parting with our distributing trade to our own population and turning it over to points East by converting railway trains into peddlers' wagons, we should control legitimate wholesaling orce. It will be observed that the very title of the Traffic Association combines trade and transportation in a common interest and a common effort. Transporta tion is concerned in that increase of population which comes with a symmetrical development of all the factors of an American community. Where pro duction, transmutation and exchange are all in proper operation, labor of all classes, skilled and unskilled, is in demand, and business ability, in wholesale, jobbing and retail lines, and in finance, is profitably employed and the whole community is built up. There is no evidence that the overland railways have any desire to restrict or destroy their present coast terminals. They need on the Interstate Com merce Commission a sympathetic mind which can see the necessity of differentials to the commercial life of a region that has a long haul on its freight. Again the Traffic Association, by frank contact with trans portation interests, has it in its power to protect trade from that curse and scourge of commerce — railroad rate wars. Whenever they have raged commerce has been paralyzed. Rates made by roads in these struggles are in their very nature unstable and threatening of change. When they fall below the cost of the traffic they imply a reaction for recoup ment of the resulting loss. The unthinking rejoice at a rate that loses profits to a railroad, while the mer chant groans in spirit at a condition that he cannot control, but which threatens his ruin. What com merce needs is equal service to all at an equal and fair rate, which is not subject to erratic change. A Traffic Association which covers the coast from Puget Sound to San Diego and sits in council at the terminal points of every overland railroad can exer cise a powerful influence for stability of rates and the resulting stability of commercial conditions. Now it is a supreme necessity that we have from the region covered by this Traffic Association an Interstate Commerce Commissioner who knows the character and conditions of our trade and who notes keenly any respect in which our mercantile rights and interests are outlawed, either by the law itself or by the prin ciples upon which it is administered. The Governor is waiting, the dispatches say, for public sentiment of the State to crystallize into a de mand for an extra session. If there is one thing in the State which above all others Gage is known not to represent, it is public sentiment. A COMMERCIAL MUSEUM. SO much has been said throughout the East of the wonderful work which has been accom plished by the Philadelphia Commercial Mu seum and the men who maintain it that it seems well assured such institutions are among the most bene ficial a commercial community can establish and sup port. Out of the museum there has come to Phila delphia a great export exposition and a commercial congress which was in every respect the most im pressive nf its kind that ever assembled. That much has been achieved for one city, but the wider effects of the museum have been felt in all the larger Eastern cities and have been everywhere noted and appre ciated. In his address at the Commercial Congress ex- Senator Edmunds described the work of the museum, he being a trustee of the institution since its organi zation. In the course of his speech he said: "It is not a private corporation; it is not a body of gentlemen associated for gnin, nor a State or na tional organization, but it is an international organization, . whose purpose and design and whose work have been devoted to the increase of in dustrial commercial intercourse among all nations. It has gathered in its museums year after year the products of almost every clime, and the manufactures of almost every country on the face of the globe, be ginning with the simplest raw products, in order that her artisans and producers of manufactured goods could see where they could obtain the advan tages and the best means of developing their indus tries and products through the aid of our brethren in every other country who are able to produce things that our climate would not produce. * * * It has, also, samples of the products, raw and manufactured. of our own people of every description and kind, that our brethren of other countries could perceive what THE SAN ERANCISCO CALL, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1899. we could do and make comparison for mutual inter change of products. It has established besides that what in a short term is called the Bureau of Informa tion. Its scope is much larger than that — it is an encyclopedia of all the commercial relations on the globe." Not long ago a movement was started in this city to establish a commercial museum here, and it was announced that the officers of the Philadelphia mu seum would co-operate with the enterprise. It is to be hoped the undertaking will be pushed while the success of the great organization in Philadelphia is still fresh in the public mind. This is a good time to begin anything that tends to promote commerce and a commercial museum is certainly of that nature. The British press had to join in the chorus of "Hail, Columbia," when the American defender beat the Shamrock. Pretty soon they'll be adopting "Yankee Doodle" as the British national hymn. IN his campaign Mr. Phelan plays on a harp of many strings,* and is in danger of wearing some of them out. He continues to accuse the Repub licans of treason, and of being enemies of the people^ and at the same time begs of them to vote for him and to bolt their own ticket. The present Board of Supervisors, with a Republican majority, has not waited for the new charter, but has instituted some commendable reforms, and thereby stands in marked contrast to its predecessor, which was largely com posed of men of Mr. Phelan's selection. But he denies that the present board is entitled to any credit for its reforms. He, Phelan the Mighty, forced it to be a reform board! He has recently fallen into torrid praise of Mr. Joseph Britton, his Republican supporter, and so far the only one publicly known. Phelan praises his age, calls him "the Grand Old Man" and other pet names. Age is a merit in men who support Phelan, but an offense in men who op pose him. In his speech in the Twenty-eighth Assembly Dis trict on the 18th inst. he said: "This is not the days of '49. Republicans bring out old men from the past. We are not old men." It is really to be hoped that Mr. Phelan's intended reforms do not contemplate disfranchising old men, or having them knocked in the head. These whom he calls old men and sneers at so flippantly had the man hood to marry and rear families bearing their name and the genius and courage to lay the foundations of our institutions. Mr. Phelan himself is descended from their class, unless he intends to go back to the Greek myth and declare himself self-creative, or like Topsy insist that he "jes' growed." These old men at least had the energy to earn their own fortunes and to create the conditions in which Mr. Phelan, without any self-exertion, became and remains a mil lionaire. It is a wonder that he does not order the Bear flag torn down, the State seal battered and everybody older than himself sent to jail for the high crime and misdemeanor of age and experience. He is singularly given to the division of the people into classes. He first divided the people into Demo crats and traitors, the latter being Republicans who will not bolt their ticket and support him. Now he divides them into Democrats and old men, the latter being those who do not support him and therefore are denounced as Forty-Niners, who, of course, ought to die out of Mr. Phelan's way and let him run things on a strictly anti-'4Q basis. Mexicans and cowboys along the Arizona and New Mexico borders seem to be making fairly good targets of themselves. As long as they confine their pistol practice to one another there will probably be no serious objection to the game. SIR THOMAS LIPTON, who bears his de feat with an equanimity that commands the re spect of all, announces that he will challenge the New York Yacht Club for another contest for the America's cup in 1901, and will at once set about de signing a craft to make the race. In the meantime he has suggested to the New Yorkers the advisability of taking the Columbia to Europe next year and assures them if they do the Shamrock will try her again. There is nothing in the suggestion that implies dis content with the circumstances or the terms under which the races were held off Sandy Hook. It means no more than that Lipton has carried into yacht-racing something of the vigor which has marked him in business, and he doesn't like to stop while a loser. He evidently believes in his boat, and while he purposes to build a better one if British skill can do it, he would like to give the Shamrock another chance to win while the new boat is being constructed. Whether the Columbia will be taken abroad next year will, of course, depend upon many things. There may be circumstances which would render such a course inexpedient. It would be gratifying, however, to the American public to have her go over and give the Shamrock a trial in the Shamrock's own waters. It has been a notable victory to defend the cup at home, but it would be a greater victory still to meet the best yachts of Europe over the famous yachting courses in European waters and bring other cups and trophies to attest her invincible superiority over every craft of her kind the Old World can furnish. The extent to which Lipton is ready to go to win the America's cup is shown by his statement that the cost of the Shamrock alone, without including the expense of her crew or anything else, was about ! $500,000. The new yacht he intends to order will certainly not cost less. His expenditures therefo-e will far exceed the million mark and his yachting en terprises will have to be included among the largest in which he is engaged. If the construction of yachts ended with racing such expenditures would be anything but commend able. The beneficial effects of the contests, however, are far reaching. Just as horse racing has led to the improvement in the breeds of horses, which have given us the splendid horse of to-day, so the racing of yachts has led to improvement in the construc tion of nearly all kinds of sailing craft and has ma terially stimulated seamanship. The vast sums ex pended for yachts therefore have not been wasted. Shipbuilders have learned from the contests some thing which has been of advantage to commerce and to industry. One reason given by Lipton for desiring the Co lumbia to cross the ocean is that she would teach Europe a lesson in yacht-building. He is quoted as Faying: "I sincerely hope she will cross the Atlantic j if for no other purpose than to show them over there J what a Yankee yacht is like. You can take my word for it she would sweep everything before her." Such appreciation of the merits of our boat shows we have a foeman worthy of our most generous rivalry, and it is to be hoped the Columbia will be taken across i the seas next year to meet her old rival and all other j yachts that dare to enter a race with her. THE DAYS OF '49. LIPTON WILL TRY AGAIN. IS CREDITABLE TO THE CALL Principal George A.

You are quite right -^^m 1» when you say that it is impossible fegp to measure its power for good. The best teacher is not the one who can jMfjjJHJfc tell his students the most. Real ■•^SS^-MI education is a process of unfold- ing what is within us. Our facul- o. a. merrill. ties are developed by exercising them — just as muscle is made. It is the func- tion of the teacher to stimulate and direct the efforts of the student. That seems to be the idea of your Circle — to prompt people to undertake a line of profitable study and to stimulate and direct their efforts in pur- suing it to an advantageous end. Your plan has the merits of some of the most popular educational movements of the day — such as the University Extension Courses, Corre- spondence Schools, etc. The subject matter of your courses has been wisely selected, and in each group the differ_ ent parts are well co-ordinated. Your list of contributors is a formidable one. It is not easy to bring the services of such men and women within the reach of the people at large. Yours very truly, Principal .

SrZERAIXTY-Subseriber, City. Suz erainty means paramount authority or command. It is derived from suzerain, which is lord paramount or a holder of a fief when other fief depend. It also means the supreme or highest lord, but usage, a superior lord to whom fealty ia due. According- to the feudal system as developed in Northern Europe, every owner of allodial lands was compel] acknowledge himself the vassal of a suz erain, and do hnmage to him for his lands; the term suzerain was applied to the king- than to his vassals who had su-vassals holding: of them. By allodial is meant free of rent, independent. AX ESTATE— S.. City. If a man adopts a boy according to law, dies and in the will it appears that the adopted boy has been made the sole heir with the proviso that he cannot inherit until he reaches the age of twenty; should the adopted son die before he attains that age and did not leave a will, the property would so to his heirs according to the law of suc cession. If he was taken sick and death was apparent, he would have the right to will the property which would come to him at the age given in the will. If a legatte dies during the life time of the testator the testamentary disposition to him fails. AVERAGE RAINFALL— W. M.. Santa Rosa, Cal. An average of "the rainfall of the State of California since 1850" would require an immense amount of compilation and when completed would not be of any value, for it would not be anything upon which to base any calcu lation for the reason that in some parts of the State at times there is a great deal of precipitation. v,-hile in others dur ing the same season there is but Little. The average in particular localities can be furnished, as. for instance, in San Francisco the average of the rain of fifty seasons is 23.01; the heaviest during any year was in 1884, when it reached' 38.82, and the lowest was in 1898, when it was but 9.31. The rainfall from October 1, 1898, to October 1, 1599, in that city, was 8.32.
