The matter of patronage scandal. In
this particular form of graft it has set
th<> pare for the whole country. N^ot
rven graft-ridden Pennsylvania has
l^rgislaturps with the effrontery exhib
ited by the salary grabbers of Califor
nia. The horde of attaches. So per
cont of whom are absolutely unem
ployed and a corresponding number
unfitted for the alleged employment to
which they liave been assigned. Is as
larere as a battalion of infantry of
Uncle Sam's army.
Assembled in line of companies In col
umns of fours, with appropriate file
olosers and at regulation distances the
legislative loot brigade would form a
line of march extending over the
lerißtti of two city squares. The main
tenance of this motley array of salary
jn-uhbers oosts the State of California
JZfiOO a day.
The California Legislature attaches
are five hundred strong. If their pres
ent number Is not increased their sal
aries for a session of sixty days will
cost the State J156.000. Comparisons
fire sometimes odious — always Interest-
Ing. Pennsylvania Is notoriously a
mechine and graft -ridden state. Ac
cording to the distribution of Con
gressmen it Is four times as large In
point of population as California, but
Its Legislators have not the brazen
enterprise shown by the California
statesmen. The Pennsylvania House
has a total of sixty-seven employes,
the Senate fifty-one, at salaries rangr-
Jng from $10 a day down. If every sing-le
employee of the Pennsylvania Legisla
ture received the maximum salary of
$10 a day, the daily expense for at
taches would he $11 SO. and at even
that rate the Pennsylvania Legisalturo
vould be compelled to sit for more
than 110 days to pet rid of the salary
prrab the California snlor.s have ar
ranged to dispose of in sixty days.

ROOSEVELT TELLS
NATION'S NEEDS
"WASHINGTON, Jan. 16. — President
Roosevelt was given a great ovation
tonight when he' addressed the dele
gates to the national convention for
the extension of foreign commerce of
the United States. A delegate from one
of the far Wastern States mounted a
chair and proposed "three cheers for
Teddy Roosevelt, President of the.
United States." For ten minutes the
COO delegates cheered the President.
The President's speech was devoted
to a discussion of the United States
government's policy In putting San j
Domingo on its feet; reform the con
sular service, and the extension of the
nation's trade Into South and Central
America and the Orient. He made a
general plea for a larger navy and for
the merchant marine.
Speaker Cannon in his address de
clared that tbe House was making an
honest effort to pass at this session a
merchant marine bill that wauld be
satisfactory to all concerned. "While
we are not going to give all you ask
for," he said, "It Is better that you
accept a half loaf than none at all."
Cannon suggested that the conven
tion's recommendation for a maximum
tariff was only a journey of one day
toward free trade and for that reason
he was opposed to it. A minimum tar
iff that would protect every Industry
and every American laborer, was the
only compromise he would tffceept
Secretary Root thanked the dele
gates for their eympathy . and com
mendation and declared that "the
people's servants in the government j
service work hard, are not over
paid, and are often misunderstood
end * subjected to much unjust criti
cism."
"The first duty of the government,"
the President said, "is to ht:lp Santo Do
mingo stand on her feet." He referred
to the pending treaty, which, he de
clared, if adopted, would remove all
danger in the future of any necessity
of Intervention. He : reviewed the
causes . which led up to the United
States taking a hand In the affairs of
the Island republic, and explained the
objects of the proposed treaty.
. Tlie President then took up the ques
tion of reform in the consular servio*.
and praised the conference's work in
this connection.'
"I believe that a great Improvement
has developed In the consular service,"
he said, "but I do not believe the power
of removal should be restricted."

1007 EIGHTH STREET.
SACRAMENTO, Jan. 16.—Assembly
man Samuel H. Beckett, follower «T
Abe Ruef and chairman of the public
morals committee of the House, wants
to investigate the race tracks of the
State. He Is planning to take his com
mittee on a Junketing trip to Emery
ville and Ascot Park and will ask
th«* Assembly to give the necessary
permission, also to authorize the nec
essary expense. If his plan succeeds
a joint investigating committee will
be name<j in the near future.
The antirace track bill introduced by
Assemblyman John M. EsheJman of
Berkeley has been referred to Beck
ett's committee, and thin fact furniehes
the excuse for th« proposed trip. As
cot Park is now within the city of Los
Angeles, having been recently annexed,
and by agreement racing In that in
closure must come, to a permanent stop
cji March 17, but Beckett and other
members of the committee find the
present spell of cold weather in these
parts uncomfortable and would doubt
less enjoy a midwinter trip at the
State's expense through the southern
citrus belt
No Los Angeles man is to go on
the Junket. Every member of the. Leg
islature elected from Los Angeles
County at the last election camo here
pledged to vote against race tracks.
This may or may not have had some
thing to do with the makeup of the
committees, but it is m. significant fact
that no Los Angeles man was put on
the public morals committee of either
house. '; ' '.-'^
The roster of purifiers Is made up as
follows:
Senate — Irish (chairman), Leavltt.
Lynch, "Wolfe and Kennedy. »
Assembly — Beckett (chairman).
\u25a0Walsh, Jury, Cornish. Hans. "Weske,
Berry, Thompson of San Francisco,
Hartman and Wilson.
Many members of the Legislature
look upon the proposed Junketing trip
as a joke, but Beckett is In earnest. He
wants to know Just how the Ascot
race track is being conducted.
himself had the power to close this
door.
He urged the passage of laws by the
present Congress that would extend
American trade. He said that a bill
incorporating the suggestions made by
Secretary Root In his Kansas City
speech had been prepared and ex
pressed the hope that it would be
passed at this session of Congress.
"This bill," he added. '-'Is absolutely
needed if we are to meet foreign com
petition."
The President declared that there
wa.s no doctrine advocated by any na
tion that compared with the Monroe
Doctrine in advancing the cause' of
peace. "The prime boast of the United
States navy is to avert war," he de
clared in discussing the needs of a
bigger navy and the wisdom of pre
| paring for war in the time of peace.
"The United States navy is the cheap
est Insurance this nation has. Treat
every power with justice, with every
courtesy — courtesy is very cheap, but
%'cry valuable — and don't give any na
tion cause for offense."
In conclusion the President declared
he hoped the meeting of the convention
would result In a faster line of ships
to South America and to the Orient.

California 's Own Carrie Nation
Johnson Shakes Legislative Big Stick at
Small Boys Who Sell Newspapers
CALK HEADQ,l r ARTEn«s,
1007 EIGHT*! STREET.
SACRAMENTO. Jan. 16.— 1n the zeal
of his desire to establish a record for
introducing reform measures, Assem
blyman Grove L. Johnson has put him
self in the position of sponsor of - a
bill that would do away with newsboys.
He put before the Legislature today a
measure forbidding the sale of news
papers containing : accounts of horse
races, prize fights or lottery drawings
to minors under 18 years of age, and
also forbidding minors to sell such pa
pers.
As all daily newspapers offend the
Johnsonian sense of propriety, it fol
lows that if the proposed bill becomes
a law small boys can no longer help
widowed mothers by selling papers on
the streets. The penalty prescribed is
a fine of from $10 to $100, or from five
to fifty days' imprisonment for each
violation, which punishment is suffi
ciently severe to drive all newsboys out
of business.
Grove Johnson denies that he is the
author of the bill. He says it came
from a man In Oakland whose name
he will not divulre.
Other members of the Legislature see
trouble ahead for Grove. They predict
that his denial of responsibility will not
save him from the wrath of newsboys
and that caustic resolutions of denun
ciation will soon be heaped upon his
head by the little merchants of the
streets.
Another reform bill introduced today
by Johnson makes it a misdemeanor for
a minor under IS years of age to attend
a prize fight, cock fight or horse race,
and also puts the ban of the law \u25a0» the
man and association ' that admits a
minor to any such entertainments. The
extreme penalty is a fine of $50 or
twenty-five days in jail for each of
fense. Johnson Insists that ho Is In
earnest in his fight, and lays especial
stress on the necessity of j keeping
minors away from race tracks.
Radical Changes in
Educational System
CALL HEADQUARTERS.
1007 EIGHTH STREET.
SACRAMENTO, Jan. 16. — Radical
changes in the educational system of
the "State are proposed In the report
of the Assembly holdover committee on
education, which was completed to
night and read to the Senate committee
on education. Through bills to be in
troduced In the Assembly tomorrow it
Is planned to increase the salaries of
teachers, do away with the accrediting
of high schools by the " University of
California and providing for the ad
mission of graduates without examina
tion, encourage, the teaching of manual
training, domestic science and agricul
ture, provide '.tor medical inspection
of school children and give the coun
ties opportunity to furnish free text
books without the aid of the State.
The members of the holdover com
mittee that prepared the material for
the report were James Sleven of San
Juan (chairman), E. K. Strobridge of
Haywardfvice chairman), E. F-.Tread
well of San Francisco and N. "W.
Thompson of. Los Angeles. In only one :
matter did they disagree. Strobridge
and Sleven maintained that the State
should raise more money for teachers'
salaries by raising the census age three
years, making it from 5 to 20 Instead
of. 6 -to, 17. • This would add $500,000
to the teachers' salary fund.
Treadwell and Thompson. were of the
opinion . that ; the - teachers should .go to
the counties not. the State for more
salary. All agreed that ,6o, per cent of
the county school funds should be de
voted to teachers' salaries.
Recommendation is made that manual
training, ! domestic science and agricul
ture be taught as much as possible in
the grammar; schools, and bills will be
offered to provide means by which high
schools may be equipped to teach those
studies 6O' as. to qualify. students; to ven
ter university courses. •;/, Provision is
also - made " for; normal ; schools to ' pre
pare - teachers .of. these ; subjects.' - The
report points out that outside of poly
technic schools there Tare '\u25a0 not : half a
dozen such teachers ' in ' the^State..
..Further, it is recommended ; ,that a
high school .;.. lnspector",', bo."! employed to
inspect the high, schools^ of 'the State;
that pupils, who have .graduated from
high' schools: shall : .b^\admitted to the
State University.'.without; examination;
that the university syste.nv of .accredit
ing high schools' be abolished, and that
medical inspection, beprovided in order
that parents be advised In cases where
children* were afflicted with defective
hearing, defective, eyesight, ailments
of the throat or skin diseases. A way
was pointed out by which counties may
furnish free textbooks for school chil
dren. The method - recommended was
for the school boards of a majority of
the school districts In a county to pe
tition the Supervisors to , include the
amount necessary for free books in the
tax levy. " - {
The report also recommended a, con
stitutional amendment creating a new
State Board of Education, consisting of
the State Superintendent of. Public In
struction and four members appointed
by the Governor. It would be' the duty
of -this board to act with the County
Superintendents of Schools with a view
of maintaining a uniform course of
study. , ' .
Hearty approval of the. report was
given tonight by the Senate committee
on education, which was made up of
Senators . Anderson, Mattos, ' Carter,
Greenwell, "Walker. Price. /Anthony,
Wright, Bell. Sanford and«Camlnettl.
The various measures prepared by
_lhe holdover committee will, be pre
sented by Strobridge and Thompson,
both of whom are members of the pres
ent Assembly.

as to State Ownership

CALL HEADQUARTERS?.
1007 EIGHTH STREET.
SACRAMENTO, Jan. 16. — A bill intro
duced In the Senate today by Senator
Edward I. Wolfe authorizes the Board
of State Harbor Commissioners to grant
title to property owners on East street,
San Francisco, to the land fronting on
the westerly line of that thoroughfare,
in the block bounded by Drumm, Wash
ington and Jackson streets. This grant
is intended to enable property owners
to build a uniform sidewalk on the
street, and wilj be compensated for by
the surrender of title of all land owned
by the grantees east, of the westerly
line in the same block.
The property involved is owned orin
cipally by the Hastings estate andT*. D.
Chandler and has figured in several ac
tions in court. Considerable interest is
associated with the property, which
was originally included in a reserva
tion made by the Government.
In March, 1847, General Kearney,
Military Governor of California, exe
cuted a grant to the town of. San Fran
cisco of the beach and water lots lying
on the eastern front of the town, but
reserved a number to be afterward se
lected for the use of the Government.
" The June General Sherman
directed Major Hardie of San Francisco
to make selection, reserving such' lots
as were best suited for wharves for
army and tiavy purposes. In July of
the same year Major Hardie wrote to
the Alcade of the town, notifying him
of the selections, and giving as the
eastern boundary of the property the
bay running out to deep water. In
the map made by the town authorities
at the time this property was marked
"Government reserve."
The military authorities had charge
of the property until it was leased and
subsequently passed into the hands of
its present owners. The Supreme Court
of California upheld the right of the
owners to build on the property when
actions were started against them by
the Attorney Geperal to compel them
to remove buildings that interfered
with acts of the rity the
property open as a public street. To
settle the matter definitely, however,
the bill has been introduced by Wolfe
on the advice of W. H. Davis, attorney
for the Board of Harbor Commission
ers. .
A bill was Introduced by Sanford pro
viding for the repeal of sections 253
and 259 of the Penal Code, prohibiting
the publication of caricatures in news
papers. This bill, which was passed in
1899, grew out of the resentment of
Senator Morehouse 'at -having his pic
turesque mustache cartooned.
"Senator Henry Willis of Redlands in
troduced a bill which provides that
hunters must weir license tags or be
subject to fines ranging from $10 to
$100.

The bill introduced in the Legislature
by Senator Marshall Black of Palo Alto
allowing Stanford University to charge
fees in the professional and engineer
ing colleges is taken to indicate the in
tention to annex Cooper -Medical Col
lege to the university. ' Under the act
exempting the buildings on the Stan
ford campus from taxation it was ex
pressly provided that no tuition should

by the Legislature. As Cooper College
could be maintained only -by fees, the
bill is regarded as a preliminary step
to the absorption of the medical insti
tution.

discussing insurance legislation.
"My bill will give the Assembly some

THE VALUE OF CHARCOAL.
Few People Know How Useful It Is in Preserrfaj
Health and Beauty.
Costs Nothing: To Try.
Nearly everybody knows that char
coal is the. safest and most efficient
disinfectant and purifier in nature, but
few realize its value when taken Into
j the human system for the same cleans
ing purpose.
Charcoal Is a remedy that the more
you take of It the better; it is not a
drug at all. but simply absorbs the
gases and impurities always present In
the stomach and intestines and carries
them out of the system.
Charcoal sweetens the breath ifter
smoking, drinking or after eating
onions and other odorous vegetables.
* Charcoal effectually clears and Im
proves the complexion, it whitens the
teeth and further acts as a natural and
eminently safe cathartic.
It absorbs the injurious gases which
collect in the stomach and bowels; it
disinfects the mouth and throat from
, the poison of catarrh.
' All druggists sell charcoal In one
form or another,"but probably the best
' charcoal and the most for the money is
lln Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges: they
; are composed of the finest powdered
! willow charcoal and other harmless
' antiseptics in tablet form, or rather In
the form of large, pleasant tasting loz
enges, the charcoal being mixed with
honey.
The daily use of these lozenges will
soon tell in a much Improved condition
of the general health, better com
plexion, sweeter breath and purer
blood, and the beauty of It i 3 that no
possible harm can result from their
continued use. but, on the contrary,
great benefit.
A Buffalo physician. In speaking of
the benefits of charcoal, says: "I ad
vise Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges to all
patients suffering from gas in stomach
and bowels and to clear the com
plexion and purify the breath, mouth
and throat: I also believe the liver Is
greatly benefited by the dally use of
them: they cost but twenty-five cents
a box at drugstores, and although in
some sense a patent preparation, yet I
believe I get more and better charcoal
In Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges than in
any of the ordinary charcoal tablets."
