HARRIMAN VS. HARRIMAK
THERE is gloom on the face of the moon. Uncle Jim Hill
foresees disaster. Mr. Harriman sulks and complains he is
not getting fair play with a square deal. The president of
the Lackawanna. after declaring a twenty per cent dividend,
launches a woeful jeremiad. All the railroad prophets are work
ing overtime.
The earnings of the roads increase month by month. They
have more business than they can handle. Every important sys
tem in the country is paying large dividends, but the prophets are
agreed that something dreadful is going to happen if the Govern
ment persists in prying into their affairs and having a i-oice in
the management.
Why should the Government meddle with the course of our
business? the magnates inquire with obvious sense of injury. The
answer is easy enough, and it is found in the portentous growth of
monopoly, the acquisition of coal and timber "lands by fraud and
the stock jobbing game of which Mr. Harriman is the highest
exponent. Mr. Harriman is free to say that he regards monopoly
as a good thing in itself. It must be said for him that with cer
tain limitations he is a candid witness. His remarkable testimony
before the Interstate Commerce Commission made no secret of his
theories on this subject. We quote from the testimony:
Mr. Harriman — Suppose we had a line from New York to San Fran
cisco. I suppose that is what you mean. Would it not be a good thing —
not that we have any idea of doing it, but would it not be a good thing?
Commissioner Lane— Supposing you got the Santa Fe?
Mr. Harriman — You would not let us get it /._ :
Commissioner Lane — How could we help it? =,' S
Mr. Harriman— How could you help. it? I think you would bring out
your power to enforce the conditions of the Sherman antitrust act pretty
quick. If you will let us, I will go and take the Santa Fe tomorrow.
Commissioner Lane — You would take it tomorrow?
Mr. Harriman— Why, certainly, I would. I would not have any hesita
tion. It is a pretty good property. \ , l"«>;--vi
Commissioner Lane — Then it is only the restriction of the law that;
keeps you from taking it? -{"\u25a0' '\u25a0; ; .
Mr Harriman— l would go on as long as I lived. ;' \u25a0 i
Commissioner Lane— Then after.you had got the Santa Fe and had
taken it you would also take the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern
if you could get them?
Mr. Harriman — If you would let me.
Mr. Harriman's theory 15 that monopoly is * the natural and
inevitable development of the law that forbids pooling among the
railroads. If the railroads were permitted to agree on rates there
would,, in his view, be no business necessity impelling the pur
chase of competing roads. There is something to be said for that
view and a great deal to be said against it. For one thing, pooling
is' only another form of monopoly.. It eliminates competition and
puts a premium on inferior service. Further, it encourages the
building of unnecessary roads that must be carried by the pool,
the burden in the last resort being shifted to the shippers.- 1 It
tas all the disadvantages of monopoly without its economy of ad
ministration.
Mr. Harriman complained to the commission that there is no
other country in the world where "business interests are so much
antagonized by the Government as this one," but the burden of
this complaint is minimized by his honest admission that "the
railroads themselves are more to blame, than any one factor for
the antagonisms Between the people and the legislatures and the
railroads."
Mr. Harriman makes a, pretty good witness against himself.
RESPECTABLE GAMBLERS
TO what extent is gambling legitimate and respectable? The
question is prompted by the fact that Harry Thaw's life has
been insured by Lloyds, the famous insurance agency of
London. The insurance is, of course, a bet that the jury will not
convict Thaw of murder in the first, degree." At the time that King'
Edward was so dangerously ill just before his coronation, London
merchants who had made heavy investments in expectation of big
business during the festivities, hastened to insure the King's life
at Lloyds. That was not life-insurance of the customary kind, but
merely fa bet on the event. ......
Lloyds is headquarters for the marine reinsurance gamble on,
overdue ships, but the same class of business is done in every im
portant seaport. It has noiie of the characteristics of legitimate!
insurance and is simply the" giving and taking of heavy odds on
an event not amenable to the law of averages, on which legitimate
insurance is based.
There are some who insist that ajl forms of insurance except
on life is gambling. They . declare, that there is no ascertainable
law of averages that governs the occurrence of fires, the breaking
of plate glass windows or the supply of sprained ankles and broken
legs. Life insurance, on the other hand, is an exact science based
on the tables of "mortality that show the average- expectation of
life at any given age. When; we say it is an 'exact science it is
on the assumption that -the mortality tables arc true. The tables
that have been in use 'are -said to require revision owing to the
fact that improved sanitary conditions have materially added to'
the expectation of life.
The}' arc good losers at Lloyds and they never welch, but at
best they are nothing more than highly respectable ramblers.
AN EXAMPLE OF FREAK LEGISLATION
S*\ ROVE JOHNSON'S spur track bill or professing
l| to enlarge, the powers of the State Railroad Commission, is
\j a very curious example of freak legislation. The -.bill con
fers other powers on the comrriission, but the provision relating
to spur tracks is. the most important feature. We quote :
Section 3. Whenever application shall be made to'said board by any
EDITORIAL PAGE
person, firm, or corporation, for the construction of a spur track, not more
than 500 feet in length, from any existing railroad to any industrial establish:
mwit existing, or contemplated, said board may cite the owner or operator,
of such railroad to appear before it on a day certain, and. shall then.and
there hear evidence for. and against such application. .If the- board shall deter
mine from the evidence'that the construction of-such spur.;track is reasonably
practicable and safe, and. % that the same will furnish business sufficient/to
justify the construction and maintenance of the same, it^may order the same
to be constructed by .such owner.: or "operator of such railroad, and in case
of a refusal to comply with such order the [finding of -''jsaid board shall :.iri
any legal proceedings brought to enforce the same be prinia facie, evidence
of necessity for such spur track. '\u25a0.'-.-.-• .. .-;^*
The grant of spur track* franchises is a purely municipal' func
tion, with which neither the Legislature; nor the .Railroad Com
mission has the power to interfere.^ Such interference in "municipal
affairs" is expressly forbidden by the State .constitution. An order
of the Railroad Commit ion under this section affejt^ting trackage
within the limits of towns or cities would be a command to per
form an illegal act. The commission cannot -be. endowed.-; with
power to order a railroad to steal a street.
The rest of'the bill is just about as foolish as the section we
have quoted. _ I * -

Declares banshee does exist, says ambitious
young men are making money at wrecking
and tells what women think of Jove
nM _ „;.„ \u0084- - c* -INCE Admiral Lord Charles Beresford
Who Will Deny the V^ has teen summo ned to Mexico by the
Banshee's Existence? W call of the family banshee to claim an
estate said 'to be falsely claimed by a negress alleging herself his late
brother's widow,, many local writers have unburdened themselves of their
ideas on the banshee subject. One of the weeklies asks" whether, the banshee
is a joke or whether Lord Beresford wishes people to think he in
it. - Now there is nothing of a joke about a banshee. -Lever gives several
instances of its warnings in his novels, which are stilt considered perfect
pictures of Irish life at: the- period when written. The belief in the banshee
or bansigh is by nomeans unusual, I have been told by San Franciscans who
do not feel ashamed dfJ their Irish descent, but rather glorj, in it. .
I should like to gefSeumas MacManus to tell what he knows of the
banshee, and I'd like to hear some one deny its existence when robust
Denis O'Sullivan is about. The banshee is a beneficent ghost, never malev
olent, and is\ always a' woman connected with the founder of the house
wife or mother, but usually wife— and she always appears at the ancestral
home to the existing <head of the family. Only people of consequence—
"quality"— have a banshee at all. No climbers may apply for one. The
new-rich may buy a crest and a tree; they cannot buy a banshee. It doesn t
matter at all how far a family may have fallen financially or socially; in their
low estate they, may be sure their banshee is just as faithful as ever it wa«
in their grand days. The late Dan O'Connell of course had one, since the
O'Connor-O'Conr.ell banshee is a good deal more than a legend' in Irish
history. All ghosts of old Irish families are known from one end of thr
Emerald Isle to the other, so no exception must be made to the Beresford
wraith for letting its wail become public.
But Lord Charles' banshee, which is proving such a source of worry to
my contemporaries, could not have told him to come to America to bring
suit for his brother's estate. Banshees aren't exactly that kind , of clair
voyants. But it could warn him of the death of his brother, or rather the
intimation of trouble that turned out to-be death!

WreCKing Ot HUltlS occupa tion among our young society men |
Is Young Men S Fad atld ha 3 f or the nonce driven salooning inttv
the background.- Even trips to Tonopah and Goldfield are being postpocp-A
in favor of taking contracts for pulling down ruins, piling bricks and carting
off old iron. There is a lot of money in wrecking buildings, if one has &
small capital and unlimited pluck. Young men who were satisfied to be ban^
or insurance clerks before the eighteenth of last April are now going inte*^
this wrecking business with the ambition to do something to write their ,
names on the map of new San Francisco or die in the attempt. The majority
of them are harvesting shekels out of their efforts to rehabilitate the city.
— ¥T7« j c ' ' " "You think that, woman is looking out the
Car Window Serves window? » So ran the question of a crusty
as Woman's Mirror old f e n ow in the McAllister-street car the
other day. He indicated a. pretty woman in a fetching early-spring hat.
"Don't you fool yourself. She's looking at herself. Did you ever try to
look out of a corner window in a car when a man with dark clothes on
.happened to be obscuring the view at that particular point? Well, just
watch that woman now— she'll show you. See her smile? Think she recog
nizes-*a friend outside? No — she's idoking at her white teeth as her red
lips part. The conjunction of the pane of glass and the man in a dark coat
standing against it oh the other side makes the best kind of a mirror. I
wager that little woman doesn't find this trip down town dull. She's found,
something to look at that. interests her." r f

Love of Women Is Cuhure doesn , t seem tobe the prevail^y
Discussed by Women topic, as it was before the quake. Clothe^
are more popular than ever, however, and the woman « who knows a little
bit about' gown-designing is the favorite in clubdom- just now. But deeper '
j subjects occasionally take the floor, especially now 'tis Lent. The other
'day orie of the sections of a big woman's club began to debate — not in
class, but in a group — on the Byronic sentiment, "In her first passion woman
loves her lover, in all the others all she loves is love." It was only the
minority that sided with the poet. The majority reversed the statements,
giving love the preference for first passion over the lover. "What does an
18-year-old bud know about men?" said one of the debaters. "She simply
falls in love with the first chap who knows how to tell her she i# charming
in the language of Cupid's "court. When she has had a few more men make
love'to her on the same "old lines she begins really to appreciate what a
live lover may be — somebody who can bring novelty in his methods. Oh, ,
no, it isn't the lover she loves— not when she's a young girl; it's Love with'
a. capital. When she gets older and experienced," with a half-sigh, "she
is more than likely to fall head over heels in love with a man." /
"And more than likely with one who doesn't care a rap for her," adde^j
a cynical married woman. f

that failed here. There must.be a few of us left who remember the weekly
that was founded by Bob Davis, Alice Rix and Frank Nankivell, in wnicn
the news of the day in clubdom, society and the stage world was served
up in language and illustrations of rare quality. Chic that little weekly
was called, and until the fire I had nearly an entire file" of it. One of its':
best things was a double-page reproduction of a wonderful Lorelei by"
Nankivell. Miss Marian Bunner did the music criticisms in Chic,' and Alice
Rix dished up the drama. Davis wrote causerie and an, occasional short
story. But the brilliant product of these clever minds did not make money
for its projectors. Chic died, as did the weekly founded by Harry MacDowell,
