THE GODS OF WAR
A CONTROVERSY of deep historical interest bearing on the
genesis of heroes and touching the prowess of General Fred
erick Funston agitates Evanston. a Chicago suburb, in search
of a hero Mayor. Colonel Albert S. Frost is the heroic can
didate, and he disputes the glory of General Funston, who went
through fire and water to win the battle of Marilao in the Philippines,
in 1899. Colonel Frost declares it was he, not Funston. who swam
the river under fire, and he i* backed in his assertion by veterans
of his regiment, the First South Dakota Volunteers.
Naturally, the implication that he was not a real hero, or. at
least, not that kind of a fire and water proof hero, has aroused
General Funston to repel the slander and claim his own. Thus
he replies over his own signature:
Jefferson Barracks, Mo.. Feb. 21.— Colonel Frost is entirely mistaken
in his statements. The Twentieth Kansas and the Firai South Dakota
regiments, in common with other organizations, made independent crossings
of the Marilao River in the engagement of March 27, 1899.
The Twentieth Kansas occupied the extreme left of the line and forced
a crossing at that point at 9 a. m., losing two men killed and several
wounded. At this point forty-eight of the enemy were killed in their
trenches and a number of prisoners were taken. About 100 rifles, were
captured.
One hundred of my regiment remained on the north bank until noon,
when, by order of General H. G. Otis, they were withdrawn to the south
bank. The entire regiment in the evening was marched across the railroad
bridge in time for a second engagement ; : /. i:V ; » i. v •
The ftrst crossing was made on a bamboo raft which had been obtained
by Lieutenant Hardy. Corporal Wigsdale and Privates Huntsman and Wil
"leys, who swam the river under fire to obtain it. \±\ •;"_;
In the interest of the truth of history we should like fuller
specifications. We have heard some envious critics remark that
the water was not deep enough to wet Funston's feet, while, on
the contrary, others asseverate, on a stack of Bibles, that the in
trepid Funston swam the river "under a hail of bullets," the while
he held his sword between his teeth. These tropic- islands of the
sea are a land of fable. In twenty years people will begin to doubt
whether General Harrison Gray Otis ever crossed the Rubicon.
The military river gods will be wrapped in a mist of mythological
glory, the heroes of a hypothetical question.
The real Funston was the man who came to help San Fran
cisco in her hour of need with his handy men. That was better
than heroes. Besides, we all know that it was Leander, and not
Hero, that swam the river.
HE WOULD AND HE WOULD NOT- -
THE illustrious but turbulent Roosevelt Third Term
Leaguers of Chicago copy the methods of their great exem
plar. Their master's voice is heard in the boom and thunder of
their welkin ringing. It is not for Roosevelt to say ether
he shall run once more for President. They will tie him to a post
and' cram the nomination down his throat if he resists. "We chal
lenge." they declare with a shout, "his right to refuse to accept the
Presidency of the United States for a third term in the face of the
people's demand." The war is on between Roosevelt and his ad
mirers. He is fleeing to escape from the hands of his friends, and
the foot race is well worth the price of admission. It is a condition
that inspires the Washington Post to remark :
The Third Term League is composed of men of mettle, resolution and
address. They are banded in a high cause, and their platform has only
one plank. Every one of the band is now a fighter, fired by an incandescent
plow of patriotic zeal. All know that the campaign is to be long and
arduous. Victory will perch on their banner only after she is captured and
hog-tied. A resourceful, wary foe stands ready to checkmate every move.
The President, on the' other hand, faces a dangerous situation. He
must maintain an incessant vigil if he is to avoid capture. There can be no
.sleeping at the switch. The Third Term League is spreading its tentacles
in all directions. It is burrowing under him and flying over him. It aims
at nothing short of an alliance with the people of the United States in the
forthcoming struggle against Roosevelt. If it succeeds in this diplomatic
game he is a goner. Meanwhile its snorts of defiance and preliminary
pawings of the earth are wearing on the strongest of nerves, even the iron
nerve of Theodore Roosevelt.
In the meantime, Ancient and Honorable Fairbanks is moseying
along, missing no tricks, drinking buttermilk and kissing babies,
shaking hands all round and inviting vagrant Mayors to dinner.
Mr. E. H. Harriman is said to have declared that "Fairbanks will
be the next President, and I am for him." The Fairbanks band
wagon moves on its resistless way in a slow jog trot. Some grace
less jokers have called it an ice wagon and have hinted that' the
charioteer has selected Captain Peary, the north pole dasher, for
his running mate. All that is slander, inspired by the green-eyed
monster of politics. "Still in thy right hand carry gentle peace to
silence envious tongues" will be his poetical and moral platform,
and if he be nominated he will sweep the country like a blizzard.

A readiness to work in harmony for the common good; has not
in the past been characteristic of the people of San Francisco. We
need more of that spirit of unity. The city would be better for more

Pacific Ocean Exposition to Show
Progress Made by the World
In compliance with a request of The Call, Homer S. King, president of the Bank of Lalifornia
and president of the Pacific Ocean Exposition Company makes the following statement:
Primarily the object of the Pacific Ocean Exposition- is similar to. that of , all international
or world's fairs, in that it will bring together products showing the progress made by the world.
It must be remembered that in 1913, when this exposition is' to be held, it ~will have been nearly
ten years since a world's fair has been held in the United States.
As is usual in such cases, an. anniversary of importance in the history of the world has been
taken as the incentive of commemoration, and to the people of, this coast and, in fact, to the world
there is no event of greater -importance than the discovery of the Pacific Ocean by Balboa, 400 years
ago. This exposition will be an advertisement to the world of what the Pacific Coast of the United
States is, the possibilities of Pacific Coast commerce, and also of California's wonderful advantages
and opportunities. '\u25a0..-•
The fact that the exposition will be open for an entire year will in itself be an object Wesson
to the world of the wonderful asset the State has in its incomparable climate.
It will bring together evidences of progress of the world and will show the world indisputable
evidences of California's progress. It will be so broad in its scope that every nation on the globe
will send its representatives here and will learn something about the State. Other expositions held
since the Louisiana Purchase Exposition and in contemplation in the future have been laudable in
their objects, but all of them have been and are to be limited in their scope.
The history of all international expositions shows that in every instance there has been great
development in the State and country in which such expositions have been held, following the years
of their existence. In St. Louis, which is our most recent example, it is shown irh a letter I have
just received from there that the building permits; jumped from $14,000,000 during 1904.* the year
of the exposition, to $23,000,000 in 1905 and $30,000*000 in 1906. Commensurate .with this increase
the whole State made wonderful advance in poptilation and general business:"
California is a State that needs but to be seen to be appreciated by all-classes of people, and I am
confident that there will result a growth of population and industrial development throughout the
State that will surprise the most sanguine of the adherents of the exposition. * It; will bring people here
who will see the vast opportunities offered, and it will at the same time show them the possibilities
of production by the actual exhibits which will be seen in the exposition.
There is a great movement of immigratiorr all ovfcr the world, and thousands upon thousands
of people are looking out for new homes. Canada is receiving an "influx of population from the
Middle West, which, if directed here, would bring life to millions of acres of our soil and aid -greatly
California's development. The fact that. there is to be an exposition of the magnitude contemplated
will serve, I am sure, to attract many of these people to this State long before the exposition is in
actual existence. * ,
The directors of the Exposition Company £ome from all parts c»f \the State and are men of
influence and prominence in the various industries for which California is famed ovef the world. ,
Practically every newspaper and commercial organization throughout California has expressed
unqualified indorsement of the proposition, while from all parts of the State I have received personal
letters from men high in the counsels of the commonwealth, who give their indorsement.
What is asked of the State is, indeed,, small in view of the vast benefits which will accrue to
California from this exposition. The Legislature has been asked for an appropriation of $1,00Q,000,
in two installments, payable only after similar amounts shall have been raised by public subscrip
tion. San Francisco will subscribe the amount required. The State appropriation is to be in charge
of a commission to be appointed by the Governor. "
Immediate action is necessary, for the reason that there, is none too much time between now and
the date set for the opening of the exposition to get all of the vast machinery in working order. Other
world's fairs have suffered, both financially and in effect, by not allowing sufficient time for prepara
tion. In some instances months have elapsed after the opening /day before the exhibits were pre-
The Pacific Ocean Exposition is to open on the day set and will be complete at that time,
the lesson of mutual help, freely given, without. dissension or bick
erings or petty jealousy. United we stood on Sunday. Now: let
us keep at it.
"|-\ ISCUSSION- as to the limits of publicity provoked by- the
I'' \u25a0 Thaw trial continues to rage. Some people would stop it
\j altogether. Others urge that it is imperative that the facts
should be made known. The Ministers' Association of Provi
dence, R. 1., after debate, unanimously agreed that every feature
of the testimony should be made public, on^he ground that. the trial
is furnishing the "greatest moral lesson of the age.'V In New York
the Rev. Frank P. Hall, addressing the American Newspaper Pub
lishers' Association at their annual dinner, said :
There has been a great deal said about the publication of all the_ facts
in a certain trial which is attracting public attention now. Ibelieve, if the
truth were told, we should find that not half the facts were told. If it
were all told we might find that not only one but a number of men there,
are who make it the pleasure of their lives to drag down little girls, and
then, when they have started them on the way to. hell, push them on in.
If this is true let us know it, and then,- having the facts, why, you and I
together, as newspaper men and ministers, will endeavor to raise such/ a public
brain storm as to make the lives of some of these men less interesting and
playful than they have been in the past.
• It is always a question how much should be told to the young
and innocent, but we believe that reticence is often carried too far
out of a feeling of false modesty. The Thaw trial teaches how
true is the ancient law that "the' wages of sin is death." The dry
precept and the moral maxim do not impress like this terrible drama
that makes mad the guilty and stings the conscience' of the free.
\u25a0It is well that the class' of men who indulge the practices described
in this trial should be made to know that they carry, their lives in
their hands, and it is equally well that the innocent should be
permitted to learn what kind of monsters these men are ' and
be warned.

Gossip of the Doings
of Railroad Men
The Southern Pacific had a cleanlng
up day of Its own last Sunday in the
freight yards of the city. Orders were
sent out on Saturday afternoon not to
receive any freight for San Francisco
except perishable goods and livestock
and Saturday night, all day Sunday and
all Sunday night an enormous force
was assembled to clean up the yards.
There were 2500 cars in the yards, in
all conditions. Some were too crippled
for, use; some were loaded with rail
road material/but the greatest number
had commercial loads. The crippled
cars were hauled away;~the cars with
railroad and commercial freight were
quickly unloaded. This morning the
yards were clean for the first time ana
500 cars were brought in.; -The work
of unloading was commenced under
the supervision 'of railroad 'officials. It
is hoped that this will relieve the con
gestion, and if the merchants will as
sist the Southern Pacific officers say
that the freight situation will Improve
rapidly. ;. - \u25a0 .
M. E. Crute, chief traveling agent of
the Southern Pacific, has returned from
a long ramble through the. United
States, saving dollars for Harriman,
sending scalpers to Jail and frighten
ing conductors who ' think it Is right to
share passenger receipts with \ Harri
man. Clute has brought back; with
him an alligator as a souvenir of his
travels. Yesterday morning he gave
a lecture on natural \ history, to the
small 'boys' ln I' the-building;" v- • \
"An alligator is an animal which has
a long life," explained / Clute, "and it
is different from; other animals.' Now.
Johnny, -when a man. gets old he gets
smaller. \u25a0 He shrinks and gets shorter;
The s alligator don't He ; gets ; longer.
This alligator is a baby and so is only
a foot: long. It keeps on" growing bo
long as it: lives, and some live to b»»
500 years. \u25a0 When this alligator, is
200 years old you will, find when, you
measure: it that it will be- exactly
eighteen feet long." - "
\u0084 "Say, .Mr. 1 Clute," -chirruped a boy
fronv the -telegraph . room, "do you in

Comment of the Press of the State

If you pick up a San Francisco pub
lication these days you will find some
thing like this: -Notwithsfa\^dlng. the
fire in April the business transacted
during 190 C .was much greater than
that of 1905." The people down there
in the metropolis speak of the "flre
as though it were an everyday occur
rence. And they act as though it were
such. Barring the lack of facilities
and accommodations which they,, for
erly enjoyed, and the unsightly re
mains of the ruins, a stranger would
never suspect that San Francisco had
been the victim of the" greatest calam
