DEVLIN BILL A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
rT"lHl£ attempt to reconsider and defeat Assemblyman Frank R.
P/pcvl ih's partisan registration bill in the Assembly resulted in
J[: most gratifying failure. The Devlin bill, while not all it should
: \u25a0\u25a0.;. •'; be, is the best that could be got through the Assembly, and it
is a long, step in the right direction. Its enactment will make in no
Miiall degree for cleaner politics. . : ' '
The Devlin bill provides that every elector, upon registering
under the provisions of \u25a0 the r primary election law, as a prerequisite
to participati6n in the selection of delegates to the conventions of
political parties; must also register .his partisan affiliations. If he
later experience a change of heart and a desire for other partisan
association, he may. on affidavit filed with the County Clerk or
Registrar of Voters, receive a certificate entitling him tp vote in
the primary of the party of his latest choice; but he can participate
in the primary deliberations of only the part}' of his declared and
Certified choice. .. : ;\u25a0 !•! • .' .
% In this measure there is hone of that interference with the
sacred right of franchise, nor yet violation of the secrecy of the
ballot over which professional spellbinders so dearly love to shed
hypocritical tears. The bill does provide some slight check upon
the manipulation of purchasable and subsidized votes. It does pro
vide some slight check upon the infamous dickering between the
leaders of opposing parties, who traffic in nomina
tions as : they, do in vice. Under the present law Democrats may
vole in .and control Republican primaries, elect delegates for the
betrayal >cA Republican trusts/ and vice versa. The primary election
i> a partisan function. The Republican voter has no more right
to steal into a Democratic .primary than he has to cut a purse.
TJiat the Devlin bill was stoutly opposed by the San Fran
cii?<;o itlclegatibn but adds evidence of its worth. The farcical pri
iiia.ries: and. conventions of last year are still painfully fresh in the
memories of the decent people of San Francisco. Enactment of the
DeyHii VbiU would, in a measure, serve to prevent a repetition of
>-u<li^pen and shameful ir.anipulal ion Of the nominatirf^ machinery
uf.thrcc great ''political parties by one man. The Assembly did well
wiictt it refused to reconsider this, measure. The Senate will do bet
ter- by. promptly passing it: to a place among the statutes.

KEEP YOUR EYES ON BERKELEY
IT- has :l>ccn the custom to regard Berkele}- as a rather sleepy
'neighbor, a; beautiful place to loaf and invite one's soul* where
no\\ .and then a peaceful folk waked up for the brief frenzy
' of- a •.\u25a0football go?zc. This was the home, or, at lea^t. the chaste
and lovely bedr<.*rsv, si the muses. \\*c take it all back. Berkeley
breeds a race. of i' ostlers with a loner rake. When they reach for
anything H comes like Davy Crockett's coon. Take stock of these
cla^ical- di^turbc^. Look out for Titus, the noblest Roman of
th'c ; grdycJ? of .Academe.. Watch McDuffie sweep the country like
a besom of. promotion. Take a hunch from the Honorable Thomas
Rickard. the Invincible Huncher from Grizzly Peak.
• We shaH not attempt to forecast the action of the sovereign
people when they come to vote on whether Berkeley or Sacramento
shall be the capital, neither shall we attempt to emulate the
copious eloquence of those ingenious genUemen who illustrate the
"hauls of legislation", with hair-splitting ftimflammery. We shall
not even offer odious comparisons of climates, content to remark
that all California climates are good, although some may be better
than others!- Xpt for us the wordy fray, the flow of caustic verbiage,
or the Joud-resounding clatter of the auctioneer. The simple and
unadorned purpose here is to call attention to the Berkeley spirit.
We should not have suspected that a town named after a celebrated
bishop and philosopher, who insisted that corner lots were creatures
of : tic imagination — we should not, we say, have suspected that
this easy and consecrated stream could break loose in obstreperous
torrent between two days. It has been the habit to commend 'the
Los-A ngeles spirit as something remarkably fine, but it seems as if
in a hustling way Berkeley had Los Angeles tied to a post. It
is" surprising, because it is so sudden ; but away down deep .we
have always known it was bound to come, because this manifestation
of the imperative mood is only one more example of the value of
a university education. The trained mind always wins. Lay on,
FREIGHT TRANSPORT IN CITIES
nnHh Los Angeles city, authorities permit freight cars to run
I without restriction on the street railway trackage. This is
J ;r done without authority of law and in defiance of the citizens'
will expressed by popular vote. The Cit}' Council now desires
to legalize thi> extraordinary condition by procuring, the. cnact
inent of a general law covering all counties and municipalities in
the State and authorizing k>cai governing bodies to issue permits
to carry freight over street or interurban railways on payment of
such compensation' as the boards may prescribe. ; ; -'
There are a great many objections to the proposed grant of
power. Above all, it gives municipal governing bodies something
more than they already have to sell, and the unfortunate but in
evitable inference is that they would be more likely to sell these
privileges for private gain than for the public good. \u25a0 v
. There are, besides, grave objections to the use of public streets
for transportation or freight. These are too obvious to require
specification. In Los Angeles when the question was submitted
squarely to a vote of the people the proposition was defeated by a
decisive majority. The bill which the City Council now .indorses
is an attempt to obtain by indirection a 'power which; their own

constituents 'saw fit to' deny them for reasons well understood in
Los Angeles. .
We can understand that business and traffic might be much
facilitated by^kc extension of freight carrying privileges over the
streets of urban, districts devoted to factories and warehouses, and
if we were certain that the grant of such privileges' would be wisely
and honestly made we should favor the extension of power, although
by. no means in the sweeping fashion proposed by the Los; Angeles
City Council. Even with such, limitations the .concession would
be dangerous. In the prevailing condition of civic morality that
afflicts* municipal governing bodies the additional powers would
quite probably.' create nothing more than anew means, of blackmail.
The fact that the carriage of freight oil Los Angeles street fail
ways is permitted by the local authorities, law or no la\Vi and in
defiance 'of the expressed will of the people. *does not affect this
reasoning. That is a matter between the Councilinen and their, con
stituents. It is no reason why the State, should be dragged j into
the controversy and asked to legalize the illegal acts of the Los
Angeles : Council. Tlfe subject-matter is one that may 1 .'properly
be left to. local regulation and home rule: f;

A SORROWFUL "talc is told in the '^troit JounmU of the
\u25a0 f malign activity of Mr. r Rockefellers \vicked partners, who
v have seized indecent and untimely opportunity to queer.; the
recent spectacular philanthropy of- their •benevolent: chief. By ;
way of specifications the Journal avers thus:
A few days ago Mr. Rockefeller announced a trifling gift of $32,000,000
to the educational needs of the country. His stomach was feeling. unusually
content and he had just made the golf course in ,"bogic." ; i Everybody,"' in
cluding the press agent of the dramatized Rockefeller, was delighted.
But those wicked partners of • Mr. Rockefeller— what did "they? : 'AYhy,
they met, with grins onUheir faces and guile in their hearts, and without
his. knowledge or consent jumped up. the price of. oil as it has never.been
jumped before. . Of course, the odium.fell upon Mr. Rockefeller.. Of course,
he was -accused of ..robbing"^ the, public to make it a beneficiary of/ its ».own
money. Obviously, we • must begin , by saving our " billionaires;: from? Hheir
evil business associates. * - „- '; v^~

in the Early Days «•» weßt up j n O ur big conflagration, there
was" a string of verses telling about the troubles of an. lrish pioneer who lost
his little shanty twiee^through the grading of the streets. The first time his
House was lowered so that he had to climb down a mile or so to reach
it,' and the' next time when he reached home after his day's work he. found
his shanty perched high on' a sand hill, necessitating a. toilsome; climb n
he cared to* eat dinner at home. "Be jabers, they've graded the shtrate,"
was the' refrain of the verses. The old poem was recalled the other
evening when a group of Argonauts were contrasting the e3rly days of
the saiidrdunes v/ith the present period of alternate slush and du»t. accom
panied by the same grade problem.
"Honest' Frank" Walker of Los Angeles.' who knew San Francisco well
in its old days and who pays frequent visits here to look after his real
estate, holdings, told a story of a canny Scot who lived here in the iiftie*.
"He -was a 'near' man." ran Walkers- tale, "and he hated to part with, the
pennies; But; they wanted to grade the. streets on which he, owned some
property, and to persuade, him to. pay fiis share of .the cost they .figured
out that he might .get off with paying $170." However, wlien the job.. was,
done anU his bill was presented it was $17Q0, just ten times the estimated
cost. Well, he paid' it, and then went to look at the 'improvements.'; He
found that the raising of the grade had caused .a corresponding sinking
of his place. He looked at the hole, and it-must have given hin? the worst
kind of vertigo.,, Then he said: 'Well.. I think I'll have to. get that lot
filled in. No use leaving it way down there when the- street's so. far above.
He jiad the place filled in, and it cost him another $1700. That's what
grading the streets meant in those days.". : : \u25a0'-.."

Ot Jack London not appear to be a man who would give a
great impetus to a literary career, but still he claims to have been the
victim of Jack London's start in the world of letters. He was not always
a ticket taker; at one time he ra« a little newsstand in Oakland, near where
Jack London lived.
Among the wares sold at the stand were the issues of the terrific
libraries of five-cent novels— "Hanging by Eyebrows; or the Sleuth Kid
Among the Whitecaps," "Lashed to the Mast: or the Pirate's Cabin . 'Bq'v." v
and that sort of stuff. Young Jack London was partial to that literary cult
then. The newsstand- man noticed it.for his stpckof the "Life and Adven
tures of Jesse James, King of the Missouri." and other fireside tales would
shrink .when London appeared about the stand.
"I see Jack once in a while now." said the ticket taker to me the other
day. "I never read his book^s. but it would be fair if I did; the Lord
knows he read enough of mine." •
