GOVERNOR - ■ .'.etermined to serve the • c Railroad and Dan Burns to the utmost in': r, and it may therefore ttled thai upon one pre tens< ' iture living the Kentucky r chance to ck-ct its Mexicai rite. being the condition of affairs, it behooves in the last Letu Mature up the party and the welfare of Cali ia by defeating the schemes of Herrin and Burns ut preparing a plan of campaign that is to come. In preparing that rbial truth to be remembered, "In union then - :ii." At th< ; the Legislature it was impos position to Burns and the •sequence the railroad schemers were baffled but not beaten. The succession to the •orship is still open. There is still a chance for the Kentucky corporation to disgrace California, by uring the election of Burns. It is for that reason tlie extra se^- be called and the taxpayers burdened with the cost of defraying it= expenses. on the side of honest politics and hon est men agreed upon some candidate their victory would have been complete. California's vacant seat in the Senate would be filled by a Republican worthy of the honor and the people would be spared the ex pense of the c in. It is not t< • to expect the friends of Grant, Bulla, Barnes, Scr.tt. Bard, Estee, Felton and the other Rej lib 1 'dates at the last session to profit by the I the p md show a greater wisdom ii It will be a part of the tactics of the railroad to keep them divided. It is their duty to unite. Arrangements should be made at once for some form of conference among the supporters of the va rious candidates who were opposed by the railroad last winter. At that conference the chief object should be to agree upon some candidate and give him the united suj . 11. Should such ta be adopted the defeat of the railroad schemer* would be assured. If it be not adopted the chances for the eventual triumph < B are by no means des perate. The Call has no candidate to urge upon the stanch and true Republican* who »o honorably and <■•' fastly upheld the credit of the party and the State last winter. It a<i they unite against the common foe. If none entlemen voted for last winter be satisfactory to all, then let some other man be chosen. There is Mirely some Republican in California for whom all cood Republicans in the Legislature will be willing to vote. Let him be en. ■ The issue is not a question of men but of methods. It is to drop the old divisions and organize for vic tory. In union there is strength. Uncle Sam will probably discover some of these days that his c-Mer cu^in across the seas does not permit any renewal of old-time friendship to blind him to any advantage that may be within reach. It appears now that under the terms of the modus vivendi which temporarily fixe; the Alaskan boundary Canada has received fifteen mile* of very valuable territory to which she never pretended own ership. Tt is not often that the refinement of selfish sar casm enters into the language of diplomacy as it did in a recent assurance given by the United States and nd to China. The Celestial authorities were assured that if Ru — ia, Germany and France insist upon partitioning the Chinese empire they will not I•• permitted to keep any commercial advantage away from the newly united cousins. There is somethiluj deeply pathetic, in tho elaborate explanation which tfte Spanish authorities have made of their defeat at Santiago. The story from their pcint of view could have been summarized in a sen tence — they were whipped because they didn't win. THE organs of Mr. Phelan evidently believe that the campaign has reached the stage at which, from their standpoint, there are votes in personalities. Mr. Phelan began in that way and made an apology for it which did not apologize. As far as the Republicans are concerned they welcome a campaign upon the personality of Horace Davis. He was the architect of his own fortune. As a father, his children bear his name and are an honor to it. As a student and scholar he stands with the learned. As a public character he ranks 'with that patient class of State builders who labor and wait. His word has never been violated. He remembers the path in which he walked through toil and stress, and looks back over its long stretch with sympathy and brother hood to those men whose feet arc in it now. In all these respects the Republican party challenges comparison -with Mr. Phelan. His organ is provoking that comparison and may not have to wait long to get it. The course pursued by Mr. Phelan and his partisans is exactly that of the corrupt and corrupting politicians who by mud-throwing have sought to drive clean and decent men out of public life in order that the muck brigade might monopolize its opportunities. As far as The Call is concerned it served notice on its party last summer that its municipal ticket must be above suspicion or we would not support it. Our word would have been kept with fidelity. We believed then as we know now- that the Republican party of this city had in it the best of material for the officiary of a city government under the new charter or any charter, and we desired to see that material chosen. The result jus tified this paper. The candidates are an honor to the party. The leader of the ticket is rep resentative of its character. There is no excuse for beginning personal abuse, except the excuse of desperation and indecency. We do not propose, however, that our ticket shall be brained by stones thrown from the glass house of Mr. Phelan's Democratic party. FINANCIAL LEGISLATION. THE session of Congress will soon begin. There will be many things requiring its attention. New subjects of legislation, of the gravest character, have appeared. They involve questions of government and of revenue. A great army and a great navy have to be cared for. Exhausting mili tary operations at a costly distance from their base have to be carried on. We are in the midst of un tried policies and of new problems. Their burden only adds to the dangers to be anticipated from any weak places in our system. Our financial legislation and policy are as weak now as when their condition so keenly alarmed the country in 1896. The burden upon them then was only that of carrying such conditions as might arise out of policies long before the people, and that bur den they were believed incapable of supporting. Our financial system was then believed by millions to be a disease that threatened, at all times, the public credit. The Republican party and the gold Democ racy boldly declared that the disease must be eradi cated. The Bryan Democracy as stoutly insisted that it must be used as a foundation. The country has waited. The Republican party f> the close of the last Congress had no power to cure our financial disease. It had no majority in the Sen ate. It could act no further than to declare its pur pose to act when the people gave it power. The peo ple have responded. They have given it a working rity in both houses. They have been so earnest in this grant of power that not a single straight Dem ocratic Senator is left from the North, and seven Senatorial seats have been tilled by Republicans from the South. Never in our political history have the people shown such a determined devotion to have an issue settled, and settled rightly, as they have shown in regard to this issue. Those who don't want to act. who say they want i to let well enough alone, in effect mean that they ; want to let bad enough alone. The prosperity to , which they point is not because of our bad financial . system, but in spite of it.j Were that system sane and sound there would be less feverish apprehension attending present business conditions. The prosper ity we have would promise longer continuance, and its benefits would be even more general than they are. if the foundation were secure. They are not well informed advisers who counsel the Republican party to sleep on its financial promise?. Public at tention cannot be altogether withdrawn from those promises nor from that i^sue. The position of Mr. Bryan is wrong: it may be called fanaticism, scien tifically unsound and all that. But it has one single virtue, and that a very useful one in politics. It is an affirmative position. It cannot be turned by a negation. The Republican party has opposed it, up to the point of reversing the majority in the Senate, by a positive policy. Its convictions in favor of financial reform have been so plainly stated that sound money Democrats and Republicans everywhere com bined in support of Republican candidates. Tb<* threatening fusions of last year were in every State faced, fought and overthrown by that sound money force. Therefore it is that every obligation of honor and policy requires that the Republican party proceed, decently and in order, of its own will and by the exercise of the power given to it by the people, to enact the reform legislation it has promised. Against this no good argument can be made from a Repub lican standpoint. The forces behind Mr. Bryan will be delighted with Republican failure to act. They will take such failure as an admission that the sound money men of the country are afraid to use their power to redeem their promises. There are roads and roads to such reforms. One road is by letting the advocates of financial heresy and confusion take power and use it to enact their scheme= into law. This is burning the building to get rid of the rats. The Republican plan should be to destroy the rats so that they will not die in the house, and save the building. Moreover, it is easy now to put reform legislation in action. The country is strong in trade. Though there is still a treasury deficit, the consuming ca pacity of the people will respond readily to a rate of taxation that will turn it into a surplus. What the sound money men proposed in ißq6 can now be carried out and not an adverse ripple will appear on the swelling sea of commerce. Such legislation will make easier the reaction which always follows these periods of high activity. Without such legislation that reaction may become a cyclone. With it there will be only a in the trade winds and wreck and ruin will be averted. Mayor Phelan, who can be voluble enough on occasion, k strangely silent now that his morning organ and the afternoon monkey that goes with it are attempting to slur the character of his opponent. Does the Mayor wish to be understood as sponsor for their tat ti ? It seem- to. Now that the Hoers and British have been sparring in the preliminaries for several weeks, the event of the evening, as Master of Ceremonies Billy Jordan would call it, will be put on Friday night, when Jef fries and Sharkey contest for the fistic supremacy of the world. South American republics must be short of ammu nition or too busy with their several domestic quar rel? to so to war with each other. They have de cided to arbitrate any trouble that may arise among themselves. THE 6A^ FRANCISCO CALL, T ITESPAY, OCTOBER 31, 1899. A PERSONAL CAMPAIGN. DURING the next seven days the thoughtful, in telligent voters of San Francisco will have to make up their minds how they will vote at the coining election. Fortunately there is every assurance that very few will ignore or seek to evade the issue. The interest shown at the primaries, the large registration, and the full attendance which has been noted at the principal mass meetings of the campaign are evidences that at last the business men and the taxpayers of the city are awake to the import ance of municipal contests, and purpose to. leave the results no longer to the determination of bosses and their gangs. In the last two elections a considerable number of Republicans voted for Mayor Phelan and his political success was due to the support he received in that way. At that time he was a man of promises and made his campaigns adroitly. Now he is an official with a record, and past success has turned his head, for he is not as adroit as he was when with such cleverness he played the double bill of a Democrat and a Non-Partisan. His speeches in this campaign have shown the extent to which the spirit of bossism has developed in him. It was revealed in his denunciation of Horace Davis as "a traitor" and in his declaration that if elected Mayor, when the time comes for him to form the bi-partisan commissions provided for by the charter, "no traitors to the charter, no Republicans who have dared to force national affairs into our local campaign, will be given commissions." The issue is between a ticket virtually dictated by this would-be boss and headed by him and a ticket nominated by the Republicans of the city which has won and merited the commendation of being the best ticket ever nominated in a municipal contest in San Francisco. What Republican can give to his friends, or to himself, any valid reason for voting against Horace Davi? and his colleagues? Why should any independent citizen desiring the welfare of the com munity turn away from a candidate of such distin guished public service and such eminence in private business for the purpose of supporting a man who. having been twice tried in the office of Mayor, has achieved nothing for the city except such measures as were almost forced upon him by the Republican majority of the present Board of Supervisors? In his efforts to win for a third time by the old tactirs Phelan has repeatedly declared that national issues are not in any way involved in the contest. Ii it certain, however, that if elected he and his party will hail it as a Democratic victory, and he will make use of it as a means of obtaining further political advancement. It will be a Democratic victory if Phelan win, because it will be a failure on the part of Republicans to remain true to their own standard and to uphold their right to administer the affairs of the city under the new charter. rROM the Portland Oregonian comes .a curious argument against legislation in the direction of upbuilding an American merchant marine. It says: "Several San Francisco shipowners were for tunate enough to have steamers available for the transport service, and the charter rates paid for these steamers by the Government have invariably been higher than the rate's paid foreign steamers for the same service. As the people as a whole will foot the bills for these transports, it will be seen that the burden would rest more lightly on them had every ship in the service been under a foreign flag." By reason of the lack of legislation to encourage shipbuilding at home and to put our merchant marine on an equal footing with that of other nation*, the United States, when the Spanish war broke out. found it impossible to obtain enough American steamers to transport troops to the seat of war, and had to charter foreign ships. In that fact the Ore gonian finds a reason for not building American ships in the future. To most Americans the fact will be a reason why we should build them. It is not of advantage to any nation to be dependent upon for eigners in time of war, even though such dependence might be a little cheaper than independence. But^he Orcgonian is wrong in arguing that reliance upon foreign vessels is economical. Had the United States possessed a merchant marine in any way adequate to its commercial rank, it would not have had to pay such high prices as it did for transports. Great Britain has been liberal in granting subsidies to shipping, and as a result of her wisdom she was able as soon as President Kruger issued his ultimatum, which meant war, to at once obtain the services of eighty first-class steamers to transport troops to South Africa. She obtained them much cheaper than she could have done had she not built up her shipping industry in time of peace. The Oregonian. however, need not go back to the time of the war with Spain nor to foreign countries to get object lessons as to the importance of upbuilding our commercial marine. Oregon has many tons of wheat and other merchantable products to sell. She has ports that open out upon the Pacific on the further shores of which are markets for all that Oregon can produce. The State has, moreover, the materials for building ships and men who know how to build them. Why, then, should not the produce of Oregon be carried to market across the seas in ships built in Oregon? Why leave the ocean-carrying trade to the foreigners? Why pay him tribute on every pound of thi produce of Oregon that he carries? Why leave Oregon shipyards idle and Oregon workingmen unemployed? Does the Oregonian really believe the foreigner is cheaper when all things are taken into consideration? THE MUNICIPAL ISSUE. OUR MERCHANT MARINE. A CERTAINTY AMONG MANY RUMORS OOM PAUL— WELL, WHATEVER HAPPENS, THEY'LL NEVER HOBSONIZE ME! WILL BE A GREAT HELP TO WORKING BOYS Brother Florinus of Sacred Heart College Saus He Will Recommend The Call's "Home Study Circle" to the Attention of His Pupils. The Editor of the Call: The educational plan inaugurated in the columns of The Call meets with my hearty indorsement and commenda tion. I recognize the fact that the plan will be of incalculable benefit to all who will take it up; but more especially will it be a grand help to working boys who have not the opportu nities of acquiring an education. I candidly believe if they will take an interest in the project that it will benefit them in more ways than one. It will serve to keep them at home in the evenings and instil in their minds some of the best thought of our most distinguished educators. I shall take great pleasure in recommending the attention of the pupils under my charge to this exceedingly worthy proposition, and con gratulate The Call on its commendable enter prise. Respectfully, President of Sacred Heart College. AROUND THE CORRIDORS TV. H. Peterson, a wealthy fruit raiser of Fresno, is a guest at the Lick. A. W.
