"GREAT EXCITEMENT" AND THE CAUSE THEREOF
TWO full regiments of Japanese are colonized in Hawaii. Their
soldier clothes are packed away in their gripsacks, ready to
astonish the native?.. There is great excitement on the islands.
Japanese spies are planning a revolution in Cuba and are
preparing to take to the woods with assorted colonels and rebels.
Much alarm is felt in the Black Pearl of the Antilles. Six Japanese
soldiers, in full uniform, have crossed the Rio Grande from Mexico
and have invaded the United States. The liars of the Rio' Grande
are up in arms. Japanese seal; poachers are preparing to take
possession of the tail end of Alaska and annex the jtrmping-off
place. It is a cold day when a moral or material volcano does not
start spouting among the vexed Aleutians. Thus we are on • all
sides surrounded, and war's alarums and excursions are being per
sonally conducted with a loud roar by Bombastes Furioso. The
very Hob is to pay and it's a continuous performance.
In sooth, these are perilous times, if one might believe -the'
monstrous regiment of liars. Like Robinson Crusoe, we dwell in
'he midst of alarms, with messages from the President hurtling
about our heads and deaving our ears with the long reverberation
of loud-resounding words, full of sound and fury. The type
writers are groaning; the English language i's being badly mauled;!
the spelling bee is in hot buzz and the' hated foe is upon us from,
seventeen different sides at once, dall out. the militia, if General
Lauck has not disbanded it, ali and singular. '
Pis disappointing, -rh'erefore. to learn from a Tokio dispatch
despite all''this turmoil and "alarmist telegrams from San
;sco and London, the Japanese newspapers remain calm."
Apparently they have not heard from the embattled liars of the
Rio Grande who eat and drink international complications and keep I
assorted "specks of war" hidden up their sleeves like an ace in the
hole. There is great excitement on the Rio, Grande among the
border ruffians. '\
Dr. Roosevelt — a man so various that he seems to be not one
but all mankind's epitome — will prescribe; we need not continue]
the must}' verse. He has messages to suit all complaints, whether
it is the caustic unction that he lays on the back of a suffering city
for the sin of wanting to be and continue American, or telling the
Ancient and Honorable Order of Philologers why they should
admire themselves. Perhaps you would never suspect the reason,
but here it is, as told by Dr. Roosevelt the other day in Washington : |
I feel that the nation ffaln* permanently very largely according to
the quality of the^ work done by just EiAh associations as this. What is
to be guarded against by our people i« in the desire for material progress
we may forget certain things of the soul and the mind. I hope to pee
more and more in our colleges and universities the work of productive
scholarship; for instance, take in your own line the work that can only be
done by men acd women trained in classical studies, who take part in such
actual work of exploration and excavation as this society has taken part in.
The philologcrs are good diggers. Dr. Roosevelt uses' more
words — no man can use more words— but it comes to the same
thing. It is all very gratifying. While we are threatened with in
vasion on every side and the dogs of war are getting ready to!
take their terrible soldier clothes out of their gripsacks— in the
midst of this flock of scarecrows, the people, perplexed by fear,
are reassured because the President is calm — calm and voluminous
in illustration of the difference betweetTa quake and a quack.
He is watching over us like an administrative providence with
a big stick. We can sleep o* nights in comfort and security be
tween whacks. He will not permit anybody else to hurt us. Whom
Roosevelt lo%*eth he chasteneth. He ie the whole shooting match
and all over the ranch. The Japanese bogie man may shake his
gory locks at Dr. Roosevelt, but he does not scare worth a cent.
He emulates the calm of Goethe's celebrated heroine, whose lover's
remains were borne before her on a shutter, while she, like a well
conducted lady, went on cutting bread and butter. The President
i:* calm. Who's afraid? All's quiet on the Rio Grande.
WAITING TO HEAR FROM MR. DE. YOUNG
IX- an editorial accusing the San Francisco papers of "fouling their
own nest" the Oakland Tribune has this to say:
An example of the way San Francisco has been Injured by thr San
Francisco papers is furnished by the Chicago Tribune of December 16,
which contains a cartoon depicting a crowd of contributors giving the
crippled city alms, which a politician in the rear is stealing from her pocket.
The following legend explains the picture: "The politicians of San Fran
ci--co hav,e stolen nearly $1,000,000 of the relief fund." How does' th;s sort
of thing appeal to San Franciscans, who know that not a' dollar of the
relief fund has been stolen by the politicians or anybody else; that -.the
politicians have never handled the relief fund, and thatthe men who have
charge of the fund are not charged with squandering or stealing it, but
with hoarding the money in the banks when more of it should hare been
expended for the purposes the contributor* intended? However, the Saa
Francisco papers have given it out to the world" that the city officials have
looted the relief fund, -end it is -now next to impossible to make people
abroad believe the truth. • '
It is not true that the "San Francisco newspapers have given,
it out to the world that the city officials have looted-^the relief
fund." The Tribune is fully cognizant of the fact that only one
San Francisco paper — the Chronicle — published this shameful slan
der that has done the city so much injury.
The story was made of whole doth, with circumstantial details
invented to heighten the deception. Coming from a San Francisco
source, it has been spread all over the continent of North America
and part of Europe. Mr. dc Young, who is responsible for its
publication, has made no move to repair the injury he j has done
to the city. The cartoon printed in a paper so careful and re
sponsible as the Chicago Tribune shows how wide has been the
acceptance of this damaging invention.

IT may be laid down on principle that juvenile probation' work
should be kept v out of politics. That Is : the present status and
it ought to be continued. Under the general direction of Judge
Murasky and the local probation committee a most valuable serv
ice has been rendered to the community. Now, when .it- is pro
posed that the cost of this work shall be undertaken by the-mu
nicipality, the choice of instruments to carry out the established
policy should" remain in the probation committee. In a word, the
patronage should not be. made a football of politics and part of the
current coin for barter and sale among politicians. '
It is proposed to create an official probation^' staff - for San
Francisco, Los Angeles and other important counties.- We should
regard the proposition favorably on condition that the .choice of
these officials shall remain in the hands of the probation committees.
We have nothing but praise for the work done by 'Judge- Murasky
in this city, and we are persuaded that: he would-be the last. person
to recommend that this* embarrassing, patronage-;should be loaded
on his shoulders. Judge Murasky knows, as all judges, know, that
the complications due to'judicial patronage do not" makV for purity.
An ideal condition would be where * judges."- had absolutely no
patronage. ,

been arranged for the first Friday in

February 1. The ball will take place at
the Palace Hotel, as usual, and will, of
course, be one of trie leading events of
the gay fortnight which -will precede
the Lenten quiet.
Captain Henry B. Clark, U. S. A,, Cap

an affair as the dance given by, these
same ofQcers early In December Jn the
prettily decorated gymnasium; of their
picturesque post. The invitations have
not yet been sent out for this; occasion,
but the invitation list will include many
guests from this city.
George T. Pago left on Sunday, for
Europe, where he goes to Join* Mrs.

been abroad for the -past eighteen
months. It was originally .. planned
that Mr. Page should go to Gibraltar
and there be met by; Mrs. ' Page and
Miss Leslie,, with, whom he would
travel In Spain 'for some weeks, but on
account of -Mrs. Page's ill': health .this
Idea •' has ' been abandoned . and ; he will

Gossip of the Doings
of Railroad Men
- The , entire ticket scalping situation
in the, United -States hinges .on what
the. Supreme Court of the United States'
will decide: In. the several, cases now
.before thattrlbunal.. TKe\flrst of these
cases is that of the Louisville - and
Nashville Railroad against Bltterman.
which was brought before the Supreme
Court on a writ of certiorarl from tfte
United States Court of Appeals for the
Southeastern District. There is also
an appeal from the decision of Judge
Kohisaat of Chicago pending before the
Supreme Court. But the case of , the
LoulsvlNe and Nashville against Bitter
man is much farther ahead on the cal
endar and will undoubtedly be decided
first. So important is this case for the
railroad companies as well as for the
brokers that counsel for both* have
Joined in a petition to the Supreme
Court to advance it on the calendar for
argument. .-
If tills request Is granted the;deci
sion will be rendered before spring and
will settle once and for all the. ticket
scalping question, which has agitated
the railroads for the past twenty years.
Before • the campaign ; was started
against the ticket brokers twelve years
ago there was no .curb, on: them and
they did an enormous business through
out the country. By a % multitude |of
suits brought in different parts of the
country, by the; employment of train
agent.", joint agentd. enactment of a
State law and municipal ordinances
scalping was gradually and steadily
'driven out. It Is believed both by. the
brokers and the railroads that' the
United States Supreme Court will ren
der a decision In favor, of the corpora
tions.
It ls\ a question whether TV. C. Edes,

Those That Want Homes
Ask for Relief Fund
r-f^HOSE that favor the use of the $4,000,000 remaining in
J[ the control of the San Francisco Relief Corporation for the cs
v tablishment of a national relief fund are growing in numbers,
but the majority of those that have responded to The Call's offer of
$100 for the best suggestion for the disposal of the relief surplus fa
vor the construction of homes and tenements for the refugees. Let
ters continue to pour into The Call office, and there is hardly one
that does not contain suggestions of merit. The views of a number
of correspondents are given herewith;
C. Kennedy, 824 Kansas street — Weed
out of the refugee camps all people able
to car© for themselves; then set aside
a sufficient amount of the surplus on
hand to care for those remaining lor a

G. Dovad, Los An*ele»— Buy blocks
of land In four quarters of the city and

the first installment on cottages they
may choose to erect; relief to be limit

for -. themselves.
:Mr«. H. 1.. T.,'Cimp 2&— Use a portion
'of the money immediately to make
