SAX FRAN'CISCO'S refugees are suffering for coal. There is
much distress in the camps for lack of fuel and the situation
does not improve. A great man}' families are still sheltered —
» if shelter it may be called — in flimsy tents that have practi
cally outlived their usefulness. The small gas heaters that are
supplied in some of the cottages are of little effect to contend
with the sharp weather that has prevailed for nearly a month.
It is not alone the poor of the camps, the refugees proper, that
are suffering. Other people in moderate circumstances feel the
pinch of high prices and scarcity of fuel. In the present condition
of the market it is not sufficient to have "the price." The distribu
tion of coal goes by favor. The man with a "pull gets the
In this emergency we believe that the Relief Corporation can
do a great work for the poor of San Francisco if its controlling
spirits will just get out of the imaginary rut of scientific charity,
so called. That variety of charity is nothing but a state of mind at
best, a form of scientific superstition, paresis ambitious to achieve
Here is the opportunity for the Relief Corporation to charter
colliers and bring coal in plenty to the suffering people. It will
be told, of course, that there are no coal-carrying ships available
for charter. It will be told that there is no coal to be bought on
the Pacific Coast; that the lumber-carrying steamers are using it
up; that many of the British Columbia miners have gone to the
Nevada mines — it will be told the half truths and whole lies that
are being passed out to a shivering public. The people interested in
tTie fuel monopoly will call the Relief Corporation fools and try
to raise a laugh ar their expense. They may be accused of "butting
in" where they have no business.
But there is coal to be had, and there are ships ahd trains to
carry it. Money can find the ships and cars and the coal to fill
them. The Relief Corporation has the money — enough of it to
solve tougher problems than this. If it cannot buy coal and charter
ships and trains in the Northwest, there is still cable communica
tion with Australia, which has coal in plenty and idle steam
tonnage to hurry it here. The Relief Corporation is still bewildered
over what to do with its $4,000,000 surplus. Here is a great and
useful work for it — a work closely akin to that for which the fund
was subscribed. "r
The Relief Corporation is not expected to be a money-making
proposition. Quite probably it will have to pay something more
than the market for the cost of carriage or even for coal at
the pit mouth. The corporation is not limited by strictly business
considerations. A great need can be relieved by making a small loss.
This newspaper calls on you, Mr. Phelan, and on you, Mr.
Spreckels, and on you, Mr. de Young, and the other influential and
humane men who are intrusted with the administration of the reliei
fund. We call upon you to make a valuable precedent for a worthy
object. The fact that it is a new departure need not deter. There
is pressing' need and it is your business, your trust and your duty
to relieve it.
The fact that you will thereby assist in breaking down a greedy
and heartless monopoly will be, we are certain, a powerful con
sideration making for your assent to the proposition here suggested.
We feel assured that one and all you have the interests of the
poor at heart and will do nothing to assist the scheme to squeeze
the last dollar from the small consumer; but, on the contrary, we
are persuaded that this condition will most strongly address itself
to your humane temper and spirit of incorporated relief and inspire
you to immediate action. It is, in fact, the poor of San Francisco
who are suffering from the present scarcity. The big business
houses, the manufacturers and the corporations have the first call
on the fuel "in market. The small consumer can bring neither fear
nor favor to help him fill his coal bin.
Charter ships or trains and bring cargoes of coal from the
sources of supply open to anybody with money and carrying facili
ties. The thing can be done with the expenditure of little energy,
and yoiH.can afford to sell the coal to small consumers, at normal
prices for fuel. It is a great opportunity fo show whether- you are
big enough for the trust that the generous people of the , United
States have placed in you. v , s ,
SF'one might construe the bills introduced at Sacramento as ex
pressions of opinion and policy by their putative parents the
conclusion could not be escaped that this is a Legislature of all
the virtues, and that an extraordinary and, indeed, unexpected
"moral awakening" had swept the membership like a tidal wave
or some other convulsion of nature of the sort that brings sinners
to repentance and their knees. We should not, for instance, call
Grove Johnson a hoary old reprobate because we find him right
on' the side of the ten commandments with a searching Sunday
law that might. make Connecticut look blue. We don't know whom
or what Mr. Johnson is after this time, but we welcome* hinv to the
ranks of the elect. It was time he got religion, and he seems -to
have it \>ad. We hope it will last for at least two months.
We scarceh' know whether it was the same dim religious spirit
moving Mr. Johnson that inspired his bill .to permit criminals to
select their" own judges— it is suspected that some of them own
judges — to try them. There is a haunting suspicion that this John
sonian measure was designed in the interest of Abe Ruef— our own
honest Abe — but -ivrnzy be merely the natural cussedness of John-
son, who wants to clutter up the criminal and civil practice of
the courts some more, as if the procedure were not already com
plicated and bedeviled to madness by the perverse ingenuity .of
lawyers. The inevitable conclusion compelled by the two measures
i described is that Assemblyman Johnson is in favor of the ten
commandments, but against their enforcement.
Leaving the versatile Joftnson in the attitude of a foxy saint,
with one leg on either side of the fence, let us take up the case
of Senator Hartman, who appears among the many who are called.
Mr. Hartman offers the commonwealth of California a bill that!
puts in plain prose the sentiments of the eminent Dr. Isaac!
WJ ZlttQ Til W* lT* ' \u25a0 * ~ ' -
Let dogs delight to bark and fight,
For God hath made, them so;
Let bears and lions growl and fight,
Birds in their little nests agree.
V V.;l Fall out and chide and fight.
'Tis the voice of Hartman speaking, but one seems to feel the
hand of Ruef, which is a natural-born reaches We feel sure that
the prizefight trust will take notice. *"
In a word, the bill file points the way of salvation, but none
need make the mistake that in Sacramento virtue is its own re
ward. To the casual observer, indeed, this Legislature looks too
SOME critics of the Panama canal management were free to say
last month when no bids for the contract were made on the
day assigned that gross blunders had been committed, and
they did not disguise, their belief that similar mistakes would
postpone indefinitely the letting of the contracts. These prophets of
evil are confuted by the event, and tlie contracts will .-: without doubt
be let to some one of the bidders who appeared on- Saturday .'The
basis of compensation, if the lowest bid is^accepted," will be 6.75 per
cent on the estimated cost. Certain important modifications in the
contract have been made since December 12, when it was found that
the_requirements were such as to discourage bidders. 'These modi
fications are chiefly: •• .
Reduction in the amount of the bond required; relief of 'the contractor
from liability for defective material, throwing upon the Government the
expense of replacing any that may be discovered; a .Government guarantee
to cover fluctuations. in the wage, scale on the* isthmus; and "a- stipulation
by the Government that no contractor shall be held in loss on account of
faulty engineering data. .
The last mentioned provision was demanded by prospective bid
ders because the Government engineers had been proved guilty of
certain astonishing blunders. Among these were the plans for, the
Gatun dam and the three locks to be constructed at that point.. The
plans called for locks of 900 feet in length. uWhen the Senate com
mittee investigated the canal management last spring a witness
pointed out that the drawings called for- locks of only 790 feet in
length. Commissioner Noble disputed this statement and insisted
that he had sketched the .plans for the locks himself and they pro
vided for locks with .900 feet inside space. That was very well, but
on examination of the drawings he found that the locks had in fact
been cut down to 790-feet. The cause for this reduction was quite
simple, although not very creditable to the. Government engineers.
It was found on measurement that there was not room enough on the
hill for locks of the original length, as designed. In a word, the de
sign was a good deal in the air. We may hope there will be no further
blunders of this magnitude to correct.
It.'may be true that the world is growing more honest, but, we
observe that the thefts, embezzlements, etc., of the. United States
for 1906 totaled up the sum of $14,739,653, which does not include

AMERICAN cities have found It

example of Paris. Many of
them have expended vast sums
to make themselves attractive, and
all that haye \u25a0 done so .have reaped
financial rewards while gratifying
the civic pride and the love of the

California cities .Los Angeles was first
to realize the value of attractiveness
as a commercial asset, and her people,

spirit of local patriotism, have voted
