THE proceedings to dissolve the Standard Oil trust undertaken
by the Federal Department of Justice at St. Louis are really but
a single phase of a widely extended movement to bring this
nominally all-powerful monopoly under control. Indeed, the
St. Louis suit seems the least important phase of the litigation in
point of the probabilities of accomplishment.
The other suits — there are thousands of them with the same
object — are to punish the oil trust for receiving rebates, and if the
maximum penalty should be collected in every case the total fines
would amount to $181,960,000, which would wipe out the capital and
surplus of the trust. There are 8098 counts in the suits now pend
ing, and if convictions follow the margin for penalties may be indi
cated thus :

Totals ....$8,098,000 $181,960,000
It need not be expected that there will be convictions on every
count, or that maximum penalties will be imposed, but the courts
are taking very advanced ground in sustaining the law where ques
tions are raised adversely to the Government contentions. It is
certain that there will be a- great volume of convictions and that
fines will be imposed sufficient to make the Standard Oil group
beg for mercy.
This is Roosevelt's policy. The law must be obeyed, even by
the Standard Oil trust. When H. H. Rogers procured the omission
of the imprisonment clause from the Elkins law concerning rebates
he thought he could afford to laugh at the fines provided by way of
penalty. He did not quite realize that every time a shipment of
oil was made under an agreement for rebates a public offense was
committed. His hilarity has sensibly diminished since the Govern
ment has taken up this plan of campaign in detail. The experience
of the Department of Justice is that it is a comparatively easy matter
;to get convictions for giving or receiving rebates. The New York
"Central Railroad was convicted the other day on many counts with
out a hitch.
These proceedings, and others of like intent, constitute the first
serious attempt to stop the practice of giving rebates; . Every rail
road in the country has been giving them constantly while protest
ing that they did nothing of the sort. In the trial of the New York
Central suit the other day a letter was read proving conclusively that
the Southern Pacific was granting rebates at a time when its
officers were publicly swearing on a stack of Bibles that they did
nothing of the sort. All the railroads were doing it. '1 Now that
the imprisonment, clause has been restored and the Government
shows an active desire to prosecute, they may conclude that honesty
Lis the best policy. ' ,
With the railroads, in fact, it is a question not of honesty, but
*.<»f policy. They will be honest only when they must. The
; Standard Oil people, for instance, have already devised a new plan by
which they expect to be able to receive rebates under cover of law.
The new tariffs discriminate openly in favor of the Standard by giving
•their refinery points and their other industrial centers much more
favorable rates* than those accorded to towns where independent
-efineries are located. It is a defiance of the spirit of the law, with
-V pretense of observing the letter, and it shows, that the battle is
This battle will not be easily won. Monopoly is the child of

.il a multi-millionaire goes to jail.
THE relief committee is troubled with more money than it
knows how to spend within the limits of wisdom. Jt is not a
common condition, this embarrassment of niches, and we con
gratulate the committee in that it seems to -appreciate fully
H^ difficulties of the situation and its own responsibilities in regard
:o its ward. Money does not always bring wisdom.* .
Now. if it :s permitted to The Call to make a suggestion, .we
believe it would be a generous and humane act should the committee
.make provision so that the refugees, the children and the older folk,
shall have a merry Christmas. It comes but once a year, and the
whole world likes to lay aside business and scientific charity for the
festival consecrated by the birth of the Redeemer. In the spirit of
'he Man of Sorrows, the committee should stretch-out a generous
•liand to those who suffer and are heavy laden.
They have no homes, these sufferers by the fire. 'Many,: are
>ld and feeble. Some of them are" children who will take their place
:n the manhoqd and womanhood of the commonwealth. They are
all worthy of consideration, and all for the moment wards of the
city. Let them be able to look back with kindly, memories to , "the
'Christmas after the fire." ' ;
t •'• teems as if another of our most cherished illusions had been dis-
I pelled and has vanished, leaving behind but a wreck of rose-tinted
|^ hopes once based on the; primrose potentialities of the whisky,

Sehmitz Cannot Escape the "Hearing" He ©ernands
£{^XONDEMN ;no man without Sheafing isi^heJc^sOf^theiapjolO;
\^, gists for Sehmitz. Mayor! Sehmitz has been having; his hear-
ing. at the bar of r public : opiniony fo^
years that he .has held office. If he isreondemned: the fault is his. "In
his Inaugural message, delivered in January of the^present year, he
promised "the best administration the^city h^
cepted what \u25a0he could not avoid^— f ull responsibility for the course and
acts of that administration. How has ;; he \u25a0 fulfilled that ) promise?. His
apologists avoid and -ignore this question^; They know what the an
swer must be and they know why the Mayor has been condemned.
They will not serve his cause by posing Sim as a martyr or by silly talk
about "handcujffs." Personal abuse willnot avail them. Itservesonly
to emphasize the weakness of their cause.
The Call does not desire toiinpbit any element of personal or
political rancor into this con^oversy. The law will take its
course. Sehmitz will have his day in ./court and ;rio delay will be inter
posed to hinder or hamper Ms defense, if he has any defense. T If there
is -any sort of postponement of- a speedy hearing under ; the. fullest
safeguards of publicity* and orderly administration of the law that
impediment will come- fr6m his/side, and no other. ;>
We have said that; Sehmitz is /already condemned at the bar of
public opinion. If there is any apology or* excuse or defense, any plea
for suspension of judgment^ that can ;;be reasonably urged, it is signifi
cant that none of his following has had: the courage or the to
tQ bring it to the front. They are silent save for the silly personal
abuse that makes^ the burden of their cry.
i Condemn no man unheard. Thai is justice, and Sehmitz shall
have the full benefit of justice. He shall not suffer for anything he
has not done or authorized to be done.
For five years » this city has witnessed /the extraordinary spec
tacle of a lawyer^ publicly ac(^edited by^Mayor Sehmitz as the next
friend and trusted agent "of the administration; '-using the police power
of the city for purposes of blackmail. .There is no denial and no ex-,
cuse for Ruef 's action. He admits that he took the money on the
transparent pretense that it was paid for while^very
man, woman and child in San Francisco knows that the only service he
performed was to ''squared the Police Commission.;, Does any man
believe that^Ruef could influence the Police Commission and save a set
and by main strength to the doorstep of the farmer. We all re
joiced. There is a warm spot in the general heart for, the farmer. We
feel that he rarely gets; what is coming to him, and we rejoice to see
him prosper. Here was a law adopted by a benevolent Congress that
piit it in his hand to make light, heat and power from his^spare
shavings,, his superfluous corncobs, arid, above; all, from that blame
less and painstaking but ornery vegetable, the potato. It was like
Carlyle's famous citizen of the tropics: who scoops the pulp from a
watermelon, sits in one-half the rind and puts the. other. on, his head,;
providing for himself meat, drink and clothing .from one \u25a0.-vegetable.
It was but a farmer's dream. It now.: appears; from the, internal
revenue .regulations that every drop of \u25a0; spirits* that comes ,from/~ the
still must be measured; recorded and kept' under lock and, key,
guarded by armed employes of the paternal Government. The
manufacturer must have one bonded, warehouse for -the^ natural
spirits and another where the process of denaturing "is conducted,
and all this at the cost of the maker. Of course, -no respectable
farmer would care to be treated as a thief by his Government, and
besides, the process is expensive. / ' .
When the law was passed loud promises were made that under
it the honest f farmer would . destroy the Standard Oil trust by re
placing.coal oil and gasoline with alcohoUmade in the cowhouse
before breakfast. It was all a mistake. The making of denatured
alcohol is a costly business, partly because of the red tape insisted
on by the Government, and partly on account of the poisoning
process designed to make the product offensive, ; for» as Revenue Com
missioner W illiams expresses it, "the stuff will smell so loud that it
will knock a dog off a dump cart." ,
A Chicago Alderman wants the city to employ.a press agent at
a salary of $10,000 a year. The imagination that can; conjure tip
printable boosts for Chicago is worth more than that.

is i forthcoming from the; Maybr^s apologists: Sehmitz -is not con
demned without a. hearing; and he wUI be given ample opportunity to
; prove inxourt, if he can, that he did not share the blackmail extorted
by Ruef. He shall have his hearing."
-Ask Father Caraher about the responsibility for those plague
spots that have been forced on his parish. The open market for whole
sale vice that flourished, to the scandal and demoralization of that
neighborhood, could not have existed for a had not Sehmitz per
mitted it with the fullest knowledge of the situation. The whole city
is waiting to give him a hearing on this matter, and his explanation is
awaited with impatience. He shall have his hearing, but his defend
ers are putting in their time to avoid or x prevent any jsuch hearing or
• any explanation of the motives that actuated the Mayor in fostering
a wholesale traffic in women; i
When this unhappy city was most in need of money, her public
buildings ruined, her streets ravaged by fire, her people suffering from
privations, Sehmitz gave away franchises worth a great many millions
of dollars. He has had his hearing 'on that treachery and must not
complain if he is condemned. If people inquire ' what secret motive,
what personal profit actuated this breach of the great trust confided to
him by the people, he need not affect 4 fiurprise nor whimper when they
draw their own conclusions. :
When his constituents see an official with a moderate salary
building, for his own use an extravagant mansion, when they see him
making a vulgar splurge, competing with the new rich in lavish
luxury and display, and when they figure how far a salary of- $6OOO a
year would carry him on the road of the prodigal, it does not lie in
his mouth to say he has had no hearing, nor to whine when people
ask, "Where did he get it?" p- l s
An indictment by ~a Grand Jury means that there is prima facie
evidence that crime has been committed. We have here 'recited a
very few items of that evidence. 7 There are plenty of others, and
they all point in the same direction. The facts are so notorious and the
\u25a0case so impregnable that the apologists for Sehmitz' do not think it
worth while to mention or excuse them. Sehmitz has had his hearing,
and it has lasted five years. He is not condemned without cause, and
he will now answer to the law.

The Smart Set
•\u25a0—RESPITE the inclement weather,
I I the marriage yesterday afternoon
jj-I of Miss Mary Marriner and Lieu
'^"^. tenant Wallace Bertholf, U.S. N..
which was celebrated at the home of the
bride's 'parents. Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Marriner,'" on -Bowdltch street and
Dwight way, Berkeley, was rone of the
most charming events of the winter.'
The interior of the pretty Marriner
home is artistically attractive* and lent
Itself ; well -to the ' simple but effective
decorations chosen for the occasion.
The ceremony took . place in the draw
ing-room ..'-: before the high mantel,
banked with ) tall ferns, clusters of the
brilliant hued foliage of - Oregon , grape
and exquisite pale pink /Bridesmaid
roses. From the chandelier to the man
tel were festoons of pale pink tulle,
which was used elsewhere also. The
same scheme of decoration prevailed in
the : dining-room, where greenage and
the pink roses were used. In the hall,
however, were red- ferries, emerald
hued foliage and flags. The service was
performed : at 3:30 o'clock by the Rev.
John Howland ';' Lathrop of the Uni
tarian church of Berkeley.
Miss Marriner, who' is a tall, graceful
girl with beautiful golden brown hair,
was an exceptionally attractive bride.
Her gown was an exquisite co/tumo of
white lace.^made Cover white silk and
chiffon, and*with a -high shirred girdle,
producing , a ; princess effect which was
