POLITICAL BANKING.
"tt-jHE objections to the proposed amendment of the Constitution
jj designed to bring the banks into politics are by no means con-.
| fined to the exaction of campaign "contributions from the de
positaries. This amendment, permitting the deposit of State,
< >unty and municipal funds in the banks, would _be like offering ;a
ribe to local governing bodies for the premature issue of authorized
tjonds. Under the amendment there is nothing to prevent a bank
;r banks from buying municipal or county bonds : whose value runs
irito millions without putting up more than an insignificant fraction
--:' the total. The balance would remain on deposit in the banks,
available for loans to customers, and at -the same time drawing 4
<ir 5 per cent interest from the taxpayers. For instance, there re
main $12,000,000 of unsold but authorized bonds in the San Fran
<-i«co city treasury. That money cannot be used to advantage ex
cept in moderate sums as the needs of the city and the facilities for
making improvements require. But if this amendment should be
.idopted the whole £12,000,000 might be soid at once, and while the
work was waiting for plans, specifications and opportunity the
money would remain on deposit in the banks. In the meantime
the taxpayers would have to meet the interest and sinking fund re
quirements while the banks were earning double interest on' the
money.
Granted such an arrangement, it is tolerably clear that bankers
s>rofiting by it would move heaven and earth to prolong the situa
tion to the utmost. It is not very long since there was a grave
scandal of this nature in connection with the issue of school bonds
in Oakland. The action in that case was probably illegal, and there
is no reason now why we should make the practice constitutional.
The amendment is vicious because it would be a direct invita
tion to the banks to engage in politics, with the certain result that
they would be using the funds of depositors or stockholders for
campaign contributions. The proposition appears on the ballot as
Senate Constitutional Amendment Xo. 38.
AGGRESSIVE HARRIMAN.
r-S-i HE acquisition of control of the Illinois Central by E. 11. Harri
fl man is regarded by the Chicago Tribune as a "misfortune" for
£ the stockholders and the country tributary to that railroad.
It is not very clear that the Tribune proves its case, which is
based chiefly on the efficiency of President Stuyvesant Fish's man
agement. This reasoning does not seem altogether conclusive
Harriman is a pretty good railroad manager himself, or. at least
knows now to hire competent men for the work.
The indictment against Harriman is not for inefficient manage
ment, but because he engages in politics and stockjobbing. The
Tribune does not touch on these matters at all, but bases its objection
wholly on a very creditable, old-fashioned attachment for Stuyvesant
We are not disposed to attach great importance to the stock
jobbing charge against Ilarriman. People who get pinched at that
game have themselves to thank. They are entitled to about as
much sympathy as the man who is robbed at craps. As a matter
of fact, the innocent citizen speculator is likely to find nqore fair
play over the dice than in Wall street.
The matter of politics is different. Harriman is in politics in
California, in Xew York, in Nevada and in perhaps half a dozen other
States. He is undoubtedly the most powerful single political factor
in America today. On the witness stand in New York he admitted
freely that Governor Odell took orders gladly and obediently from
him. Four or five United States Senators are in the; same boat.
There is not much doubt that Harriman will control more delegates
to the next national conventions of both parties than any other man.
This, in concrete form, is the danger. that arises from the con
solidation of great aggregations of wealth and industrial forces.
A PLEA FOR THE WELCHERS.
THE London Times makes this curious defense of certain welch
ing insurance companies which shaved their liabilities in a
niggling way after the fire in this city: :
. They are held up before, the California public as mean folk who
higgle about the actual loss sustained, who show a nasty spirit of inquiry as
to. whether goods insured were really in the building known to be burned
and who are even so hardened as to dislike paying for a building which was
first thrown down by earthquake and a day or two later overtaken by fire.
While we can understand that the majority of the British companies felt
it better to pay most claims in full at once, because, they believed that con
tracts or no contracts, law or no law. the California courts would give' theni
no protection, yet our sympathies are with those who have at least' made a
stand against extortion. These offices have.: \ve are assured, paid all
proper claims in full; and have on the average paid, considerably more than
/5 per cent (more. nearly 90 per cent) of the sums insured under their policies;
they have, in fact, saved no more in salvage -and': by inquiries than "many of
those offices which have been placed in class A. They have saved no more
than they are bound to do in the interest of their shareholders.
This is disingenuous. No objection or criticism has been di
rected at companies which inquired concerning the actual. presence
of the goods insured at the time of the fire. As for the earthquake,
the Times is so much impressed by it as to add that "a settlement of
about 60 to 70 per cent of the face value«of the policies would prob
ably have been ample to pay for the actual losses coming within
the contracts/ v
The assumption here Is, of course, that propert}" in San Fran
cisco was insured for its full value. As a matter of fact, insurance
wasjarely permitted to exceed 50 per cent of value, and in most cases
was; nowhere nearly as much as that figure. This is Uhe: fallacy, at
the root of every plea that we have seen, urged on behalf of r-'the'
companies that offered compromises.

Justice James A. Cooper, now an Associate Justice on the District Court of Appeal bench and formerly '- Supreme oourt o™™^
sioner,:is;the;deceS Judge of the Appellate bench. Justice Cooper, as iman ana
jurist, has a flawless 'record. He is honest, fearless, incorruptible. None of which commend him to Ruef. He has won eminent distinction
at the bar and has graced the Appellate vtench/ He is entitled to the votes of decent men of every poH^
Carroll Cook' neither as man : ncr jurist has' a flawless record. That he is honest no one pretends to believe. That he disgraced me
Superior Court eve^ry one knows. All of which iccmmend himHoßuef. This Judge, who spread the ermine of his high, office as a cloaK to
shield -the foulest dens that ever disgraced San: F^ the purposes of Euef. He is unquestion
ably clever. He is versed in the law; anUthe methods of perverting it to shie^^ vice and the criminal. He is Euef's man. None more dan
gerous to the people could be elected vjbq preside over acourt that has appellate jurisdiction over all criminal cases triable m the Superior
Court, ; except those in which judgment of death has been pronounced. None moire yaluable to Ruef and Rueflings. ..
Judge 'Wiliiam P. Lawlor, because he is honest, fearless, a clean man and a capable Judge, is the pet aversion of Rogue Ruef. His quail
fications as a Judge make him dangerous to Itogue/Ruef and his Rueflings. -It is such Judges as WiUiam P. Lawlor that insure honest trials
of the people's causes; that^ send looters to their deserts behind- prison bars. \
Judge James V; Coffey is not onj^ capable and a jurist with an enviable court record, but he is honest and js entitled to the confidence
and the support of the people. His services^ his worth and integrity and
been of incalculable value to the people. ){,!. ;- t
John "A. Hcsmeris bothlawyer and JudgeV AOhe bar n^ been sought by his legal
brethren in many of the most important cases tried in the San Francisco courts. He was for years connected with the District Attorney's
office and made a brilliant record as a prosecuting officer. , On the; bench he has exhibited the judicial temperament, honesty of purpose,
depth of legal equipment, and lack of.; bias that go to make up 'the ideal Judge. He has the respect, of bench, bar and people. He has the hatred
and fear of the Rueflings, than which nothing more significant could be said. - \u0084 . #
.Presiding Judge Thomas f. Graham, whom Conlan, if elected, will succeed,. has demonstrated his worth. With Ruef and his looters
fighting by every _ ; foul means to secure .control of the Grand Jury, vz-hich Ruef knows "if not packed will indict him, Judge Graham has stood
by the people. He has stood up like a man and a Judge. He has declined to lend himself or his court to the Looters' League. His refusal to
permit the packing of the Grand Jury with Rueflings has won for him the hatred of Ruef and has given him the confidence of the people.
Arrayed against these men, judges, are Conlan and Mogan, tools of the Master Looter.
As: Police Judge, Charles T. Conlan has 'lent himself to the ' 'push." *By no stretch of the imagination can he be made to conform to
the descriptive terms, honest, fearless, learned or incorruptible. It is he whom Ruef would make Presiding Judge; to whom Ruef would in
trust the impaneling of grand juries, the disposition of criminal cases. And Ruef knows "well the temper of the tool he would employ to
stab the public.
, Edmund P. Megan was elevated to the police bench by Lanigan. Ruef would elevate him to the Superior bench. .His record shows him
as dishonest, corruptible, subservient to the manda,tes of a boss as his running mate, Conlan, and that he has even less wit.
Cook, Conlan arid Mogan ''.are the '..creatures:- Ruef expects the decent people of the First District and San Francisco to elect tomorrow.
And they will be elected if partisans. 'vote "straight tickets. • Their defeat is a duty every honest citizen owes himself and his party. To vote
straight Republican, Democratic or Union) Labor, tickets means their election.
Let every voter turn UP the.; poin^efs^o^^ the names of Cook, Conlan and Mogan, and turn DOWN the pointers over the names of
Judges CoopVr^^wlorV.Cbffeyj-Hqsmer-^and-'-GrahaEi.-.;^

\t while making good;'' his} prom
ise, to- play in succession tw-pnty
soven different instruments "yesterday
nfternoon on the Orpheum stage. More
over, he played , some of them long
fnpngh to produce complete airs, in
cluding: the Toreador sons from "Car
men," .the grarland songr from "F.iui't,"
Mendelssohn's "Spring: Song," "The
Death of Nelson" and "The Bay. \u25a0 of
Biscay," and the many bits .that he
discoursed were of sufficient lenpth to
indicate that he was competent to in
terpret: the entire . selections from
which they were chosen. And no less
remarkable/, than his strenviosity .. was
the artistic quality 'of 'his work. With
equal facility he , brought . correct
phrasing from a piccolo one moment
and a trombone the next, and those
who applauded him most vigorously
\u25a0were persons versed in' music /instru
mentation. His comedy 'was I never; in
trusive. , ' V
Amateurism was palpable in the per
sonality . and. sinerlns of Frances
d'Arcy, soprano,, nor,,'did the passing
of numerous floral tx|butes over the
footlights to her serve to relieve that
impression. With a) voice of "lyric
quality and incertitude of tone . she
Bang- "Xanlna l^ and "How Can I Forget
You," both monotonously* repetitive of
sentiment, and concluded ' with : ''The
Stars and Stripes and. You," which -is
a good enough song of its kind ; when
it is delivered with the animation call
