A MESSAGE TO A GOOD MAYOR
THE CALL sends a rather belated holiday greeting to Mayor j
Mott of Oakland and congratulates him on his financial nerve.
We hone that he will continue to administer his office with his
custo:r.arv aplomb and wax fat, or, at least, fatter. He is like
Caesar before the fall and puts away from him the crown, likewise
51 2,000 a year.
Mayor Mott has an accurate understanding of the situation.
A big public service corporation is preparing to saddle the water con
sumers of Oakland and neighboring cities with a capitalization of
S-i0,000.003. being about four times the actual value of the plant.
On that criminally inflated capitalization the water-rate payers of
Oakland. Bei' riey. Alameda and other communities on the Alameda
rho-* will ' •" - /- '.' ,?'.'-; >\u25a0'•\u25a0. ''* *'*•» : -*«"<><it. This cornoration pro
posed to purchase Mayor Mott's popularity to stand as a buffer be
tween it and the indignant sense of the citizens. Mayor Mott appre
ciates the function he was expected to fulfill and declines to become
a political utensil for the water company.
The ravared citizens of Alameda County passing in review be
fore the Mayor's tribune might exclaim, "Hail, Caesar Mott! We
who are about to give up our substance to the People's Water Com
pany salute you because you have a heart as big as a cow."
Speaking with all seriousness, Mayor Mott's record in office
and out of it is a tlrng of which both he and Oakland have license
to be proud. As Mayor he is the antipodes of San Francisco's un
bsloved Schmitz. Fancy Schmitz hesitating to choose between
S3OOO a year with honor and $12,0 X a year as popularityrinaker for
a gouging corporation!
Mayor Mc»tt is unquestionably the^right.man in the right place.
May he continue to occupy it as long as he likes. '
BUILDING TRADES COUNCIL DOES WELL
IX the labor rews department of The Call the following was pub
lished yesterday :
Resolved, by Building Trades Council, That the action of Electrical
Workers' Union No. 6 in attempting to evade the laws of this council and
ilbjE present strike of the inside wiremen be and are hereby condemned as
illegal and inimical to the building industry and the trades' union movement
and injurious to the prosperity and peace of the community; and be it further
Resolved. That Local Union No. 6 of the I. B. E. W. be directed
immediately to cause its members to. live up to their own law and the con
htitution of this council.
These resolutions calling off a strike of the electrical workers
are evidence that the governing body of the building trades stands
for stability and good faith. It has been a common accusation made
by the enemies of organized labor that the unions could not be relied
on to keep their engagements. This action by the Building Trades
Council, representing probably 40,000 artisans, is proof io the con
trary. That body not long-a^o disciplined the plumbers when they
seemed disposed to break faith. Xow the electrical workers are told
that they must obey the laws of their organization.
Labor unions carry a grave responsibility. The general welfare
of the whole community depends on their course. It is nowhere
demanded that wages shall be reduced, high wages being the best
thing that ever happened, but it is insisted on for the general good
that conditions shall be stable and that pledges shall be kept so that
calculations for the future may be made with certainty. There is
nothing so luirtful to business and industry as uncertainty as to
the future. The Building Trades Council vindicates itself and adds
to the public respect for the union principle when it disciplines in
'•this wise a constituent organization.
HER INFINITE VARIETY
THE infinite variety of the eternal feminine finds its latest illus
tration hi the holiday festivity of Miss Katharine Hull of Chi
cago, who. while spending a winter in Colorado, furnished forth
a. gorjreor.y Christmas tree for her pet dogs and invited the
neighbors to assist at this eccentric function. We would not be
understood to intimate that the Christmas tree as popularly under
stood has either ir.oral or religious significance, but it might seem
that an inclusion of the "lower animals" in its privileges is a positive
insutf to the institution. To be sure, we hazard this suggestion at
the imminent peril of being accused by the "unco* quid' Eastern
of nourishing a degraded race prejudice.
The truth seems to be that the monstrous regiment of idle wo
men, dcvelop-d by an abounding prosperity, runs either to mischief
or silly eccentricity. If they had to earn their own. living in some
one of the multiplicity of -ways now open to them they would not
he planning 4 monkey dinners or adorning a Christmas tree on the
asjiiiniption that pet dogs are part of the family. If they had chil
. drcn to look after they would notlbe> packing around those "Teddy
• bears," on which it is the fashion to lavish. public endearment. If
idle hands must find occupation it is perhaps better that it should
be silly than mischievous, but" it should not be difficult to find- some
useful occupation. • ' : - '•--'_

The Statesman From the Interior in Training
a pardon detrimental to the interests of the State have' been read and appre
ciated by all law-abiding citizens and by those who' .have? suffered from his
outlawry. Since his incarceration there has not beenso much crime in the
southern part of the State where, he held sway. Before that murder, dyna
miting of trains and robbery were quite" frequent. If a> man -with, his record
is not confined within prison walls, why is it necessary to have a prison.'
We do not apprehend that any Governor-, of Avill
seriously consider. a petition for the pardon of The move
ment has no other basis than a vicious, dime-novel sentiment. To
encourage that sentiment by official approval ; woii ld"^^make'our execu T

The bandit is. very well where he is. He isf not Jin "prison/be
cause there is any vindictive feeling against'him. His punishment
was not due to public clamor, but to, a cold-blopded; policy. to make
an example that would frighten others from engaging >in a career
of sensational crime. That is well-settled, policy and it should not be
stultified by officially raising Evans to the dignity of: a pinchbeck
hero. * r :
/"^OXGRESS will probably direct during the present session that
I all mail matter handled by theirailroads for six months from
\j July 1, 1907, to January 1, 1908, shall be weighed and averaged.
It is matter; of common knowledge that the railroads are now
paid a great deal more than' they are. entitled to on the letter, of,
the mail-carrying contracts. The annual cost of transporting .the
mails by railroad is at the present time $45,000,000,' and payment
is nominally based on the average daily weight carried. The method
of arriving at this average is one of ; the curiosities of official Vdis-.
honesty.
Representative Murdbck, df Kansas, who is a member of the
House committee on postoffices and post roads, is authority for 'the
statement that the mails are weighed for 105 days, but the. average
is struck for ninety days, the Sundays being excluded. That is to
say, taking a week as the unit, the total weight carried in seveiv days
is divided by six to get the average. On some routes the Sunday
mails are especially heavy and this weight, distributed -over the
other sfx days, makes the daily average much too- high: Mur
dock declares that under this faulty system the Government has been
defrauded of $40,000,000 in the past tenyears/ What between ; the
abuses of the franking privilege and overpayment o.fj the railroads, it
is not surprising that the postoffice budget shows a^big'deficit.

Senator Franklin P. Mays and handy man George Sorensen, was up for trial.
After. the completion of the jury an adjournment was taken, and the '*y"°*
ants and their attorneys left the courtroom together. As they reached tne
hall William D. Fenton, attorney for Mays, turned to his companions^ ana
said in a low, confident tone: "I think we've got two of those jurors.
Some of the persons addressed looked pleased, but not Jones. You
think you've got two, do you?" he said disgustedly. "In my case I was
sure I had six, and still I was convicted."

Another Retainer - States Senator G eorge C Perkins two years
hence/but so far as I can learn the Alameda. diplomat has no cause for
alarm. E.-.H. Harriman may not be over-fond of the Perkins personality, but
he realizes that. a veteran log-roller who does his work quietly is of far
more value to the: Harriman interests than a man who, without warning,
would occasionally, bang a big fist on the table and roar so that everybody
could hear him, "I'll see you in Tophet before I do it!"
Furthermore, the Southern Pacific, which is the coast end of the Harri
man interests, does not consider that it owes Knight anything. Two years
ago when railroad intervention left Knight on a sidetrack while the Harri
man-Herrin senatorial special bearing Frank P.- Flint as guest of honor
went whizzing by on the main line, the Humboldt megaphone made a terrible
noise. He insisted that the railroad had given him to understand that it
would keep hands off and threatened vengeance on everybody who bad a
hand in the game that brought about his defeat. The woods were full of
loud, harsh 'Sounds for a week or more; then suddenly the clamor was
"heard to cease." Knight is now attorney for the Pacific Mail, a Harriman
corporation, with a retaining fee of $6000 a year and fees whenever there
is any work to do. I am reliably informed that Knight received his attorney
ship shortly after he was beaten for the senatorship and about the time that
he stopped making those dire tKreats of vengeance. It is possible that
his next campaign may bring something fruitful _ his way, but inspired
politicians tell, me it will not be a seat in the United States Senate.
Perkins MtlSt NOW ' Members of the -Federal brigade inform
Unwind Himself me that the pJan to ye California another
Federal Judge is to be revived, and will soon
be brought up again in Congress. Two years. ago, -when the same plan was
broached, Perkins found himself in a tangle. The Harriman interests, repre
sented byiWilliamF.- Herrin, -.wanted former' Supreme Judge W. C. Van Fleet
named for; the place" to be created; but - Perkins, /before learningVof this,

Straittoni present collector of therport.. To add totHe troubles of Perkins
the President, wanted neither,' but insisted that the plum go to Victor H.
Metcalf , who prefers a life judgeship to being temporarily a japanned orna
ment in a presidential cabinet. In the spaces arnong-three stools "everybody
fell to the flocpr.' Now that the question is to come up once more politicians
are wondering how it is going to end. Van Fleet, Stratum and Metcalf
will bob up again, and Perkins will have to put his nimble wits the test
if he counts upon ridding himself of his ropes without losing influence either
in California or Washington. **S "4" 4

John Garber had been offered the position of canal" commissioner and had^
declined it Perkins called at the White House. Despite the chill that
Perkins brought in with him, the head of the spelling class greeted him
warmly. ;
'\u0084 "Sorry Mr. Garber didn't see fit to take that place," said the President.
"Good man, wasn't he?"
"Excellent," replied Perkins. "Unquestioned integrity and wonderful
ability. -You couldn't have selected a more capable man. Just to prove
how ableXhe is I, need only to mention that whenever the railroad out our
way has any critical litigation on hand it always hires Garber."
The President's jaw fell. He was speechless for a moment! but recovered
himself with an exclamation no longer officially spelled in .the old way and
6aid indignantly, "Metcalf- did not tell me that." •\u25a0' \u25a0*'-'.
It was neat work on the. part of Perkins, but the effect was only tem
porary. According to my informants the Japanese report made Metcalf
/stronger than ever, and if he insists on' a judgeship he will get one, provided,
of course/that the President gets a chance to appoint.'- Another tug-of-war
may mean another postponement, and Roosevelt is not going to hold office
