CALHOUhTS CONTINUED ABSENCE MR. PATRICK CALHOUN ought to be in San Francisco. The climate is pleasant, although sometimes damp. The society is good and millionaires are plenty. This is the open season. Mr. Calhoun has large interests here that call for his personal attention. He spent some time in this city during the period, of the first flurry of rehabilitation after the fire. How much of his attention was given to the procurement of the overhead trolley franchise by the United Railroads is not known, but there; are some people here who have the right to be informed. Mr. Calhoun owes it to himself to come out and explain. It would be much more genteel to come here voluntarily than under the annoy ing and impertinent persuasion of a subpena. We assume, of course, that Mr. Calhoun is not dodging subpenas, and we cherish or. at least, are willing to entertain a hope that he has nothing to conceal. For the present this hope is chiefly based on Mr. Calhoun's indignant question which pointed to his social recognition of Mayor Schmitz as evidence of innocence, incorporated and otherwise. "Do you suppose,"' asked the president of the United Railroads* "that I would have invited to my house a man whom I knew to be a bribe-taker?"' Mr. Calhoun might do well to come here and answer his own question. The Grand Jury knows that Schmitz is a bribe taker, and there are others in San Francisco very close to Mr. Calhoun who know it. If the president of the United Railroads has been kept in ignorance of the fact he has been grossly deceived imposed upon by members of his incorporated household. He las been stung by his pet viper, or vipers. Mr. Calhoun is afflicted by an unfortunate habit of procrastina tion, which is the thief of time. Once when there was question of a strike on the street car system, which had been brewing for weeks, everybody concerned was asked to wait until Mr. Calhoun arrived. He appeared to be impressed with the belief that the battle could not go on without his presence. Indeed, he permitted matters to come to the verge of a strike before he managed to put in an appearance. As an absentee owner, San Francisco owes but little consideration to the president of the United Railroads, because the city has usually lad but little consideration, except of the long-distance kind, (*rom him. Possibly, Mr. Calhoun is a believer in the doctrine of vicarious atonement or, peradventure. he is afflicted with wicked partners. If that is true he owes it to himself to come here by the first train and expose the villains who ha\e traded on his innocence. From the tone of indignant virtue carried by his question about Schmitz ive had hoped to see him here a week ago; but, alas! he tarries by :he way. His indignation has grown cold and his virtue is of the variety that improves by keeping — in sooth, an acquired taste. The facts are simple: The Grand Jury is in possession of evi dence that a very large sum of money was paid in the way of bribes to the Supervisors for the grant of the overhead trolley franchise to the United Railroads. That much is known positively from the indictments on file. If that money was paid without Mr. Calhoun's knowledge or consent, his indignant virtue will find its fittest func tion in exposing and dismissing the rascals and helping to bring them to justice. If the bribes were paid with his knowledge and by his order, then he is guilty of felony. Moreover, he .can learn much to his advantage in this city that may preserve him from future social contamination by Schmitz. If he keeps away we shall begin to suspect that he is a hypocrite as well as other things. THE "LOS ANGELES SPIRIT" IT is distressing when an ideal or an idol — they are sometimes closely related — is shattered by the hammer of circumstance. Long time Los Angeles has assumed an air of the superior person lecturing San Francisco as the city wicked and not ashamed. With a pious snuffle we were bidden to imitate the example of Los Angeles and get inoculated with the Los Angeles spirit. Now it seems that certain of the godly L«s Angeles folk, the shining lights and exponents of the Los Angeles spirit, have been bribing their way to franchises in San Francisco and Oakland, debauching the morals of the bay cities. The conclusion is com pelled that these thrifty franchise buyers began their career of crime at home, and as nobody in that favored city has raised any objection, it appears that the Los Angeles spirit is to condone suc cessful bribery and preach at the neighbors. THE POLITICAL FLOWER GARDEN THE Presidential candidate blooms in the spring. He is a hardy biennial, planted in an off year and fruiting or proving barren the following summer. Just now, like the daffydown dillics and the crocuses and other modest flowers, he is peep ing from the sodden earth and pleading for notice by a heed ! less world. There is our ancient and versatile friend, Charles Warren Fair- 1 ! banks. No longer does he appear in the character.of Vice President^ of the United States. He desires now to be recognized as Farmer! - Fairbanks, and is heard all across the continent complaining that I the wicked railroads will not give him cars to move the hogs and i hominy that he raised in Illinois. There is always corn in Egypt. 'Mr. Fairbanks has a farm in Illinois and a boom in Indiana. T/he railroads are helping the boom and hurting the farm. Horse and horse. ' . Uncle Joe Cannon is more or less enjoying a life on the ocean J wave in process of quarantine. He makes friends with the ladies EDITORIAL PAGE and will dance a jig on deck on small provocation. He is only 70 years young, God bless him. "Big Bill" Taft is Roosevelt's pet candidate, but he seems to lose rather than gain by the association. He would be stronger by himself. The second fiddle does not make the right kind of noise to impress a "^tiff-necked people. Everybody likes Taft, but we are not sure whether we want him administered in the shape of medicine by the doctor. Roosevelt is the doctor. Then we have the group of Governors. There is Hughes of New York, Cummins of lowa and Deneen of Illinois — all good men. There is but one man in the Senate who is in the running, and that is La Follette. It is anybody's race unless Roosevelt decides to run for a third term. ;. GOVERNOR GILLETT did well to refuse his signature for I the Whitmore bill, relative to water rights and designed chiefly \T to complicate the situation on the upper Tuolumne River. The Governor has not stated his reasons for this refusal, but; i it is natural to suppose that he was largely influenced by the uncer tain wording of the amendment, which, as has been heretofore pointed out, invited litigation. The bill was vicious in another way, because jit was based on an idea that San Francisco desires to do injustice to the Modesto and Turlock irrigation districts. No such disposition exists in San Francisco, and, it may be added, no such power. The bill, in a word, may be regarded as a malignant endeavor to create sectional feeling that must work to the mutual injury of two qommunities. : £ San Francisco can do the irrigation districts valuable service, and the districts can help this city to a competent water supply. There is plenty of water in the Tuolumne River for both parties, but as long as the irrigation districts hold back in the traces the greater part of this water will run to waste or do positive injury in such destructive floods as we are now witnessing. When the time comes, as it must come before long, that all the Sierra streams are restrained by great impounding dams near the headwaters, the flood situation in the valleys will be greatly relieved. The construction of la great reservoir at the headwaters of the Tuolumne will give^the Modesto and Turlock districts sufficient water for irrigation in* the fall. Their rights in that regard may be secured by some form of contract that may require ratification by the Legislature. The matter should be approached in a business way, having regard for the rights of all parties interested,, and with a view to securing mutual Benefits by friendly negotiation arid There. are many Americans who think the Deweys' decision to give up the presentation house came nine years too late. The New York Senate is willing to accept Attorney General Jackson's corruption charges as a joke, but refuses to view Senator Davis' demands for the proofs as other than an irreparable breach of Senatorial courtesy. .

McAllister Street Is in Need of Attention EDITOR San Francisco Calir Sir: McAllister street is torn up and in an awful condition. ' Storekeepers are much incon venienced, as teamsters are using the sidewalks for their wagons. We know this, is not right, but do not know where to make complaint. The police do not seem to care to Interfere. The sidewalks are very poor at any time, and making , roadways of them surely will not Improve them.. Is there no law against this? Besides paying-high rents, do we have to stand everything? Respectfully, mMUBBKSSSgffffS^ RICHARD CORN, , 7«l McAllister street, ' San Francisco.

Leniency, in this case is a condoning of the crimes, and Gossip of the Doings of Railroad Men S. F. Booth of the Union Pacific ob served yesterday that the city and the State must be In a prosperous condi tion or else his office would not be sell ing so many tickets to Europe. "We have been ticketing a very large number of San Francisco people to the old world besides many from the In terior, and we have been embarrassed in securing the necessary space on the big Cunarders during the summer months. Already we have had to turn over some of the business to other lines. It also surprises me to learn how attractive the Dublin Exposition Is to San Francisco people. There are a number of prominent clergymen booked for the trip. Cheap rates will be in effect on certain days In May, June and July. The round trip will be $203.15 for first-class rail and second cabin steamer. . The westbound busi ness, pao, is heavy. You know last year we thought we would be doing well this year If we succeeded in sell ing the same number of tickets for Europe, but this year the sales are 25 per cent greater than last year." The Southern Pacific has Issued a new Oregon rate sheet which 1^ said by railroad men to be the best that has been published by a railroad company. It is so well arranged that It can be understood b"y the veriest tyro In rate sheets. The principal towns In all the States are given, and opposite the name of each town the different railroads by which It can be reached. Any person examining the rate sheet can select his own lines without trusting to a clerk to do the routing. , Charles Clifford, who was for many years with the Union Pacific and. re cently traffic manager of the Pacific Hardware Company, haa resigned and will be succeeded by J. C. Settle, who was formerly chief clerk for S. N. Bost wlck, assistant general freight agent of the Southern Pacific J. C. Stone, district freight and pas senger agent of the Southern Pacific at Sacramento^ la in the city. "I was In Los Angeles recently, and I had a cold Just as I have now." whis pered E. E. Calvin, general manager of the Southern Pacific, yesterday, "and to add to the pleasure of losing my voice I had a dreadful toothache, so I went to a dentist and told him In as loud a voice as I could muster to draw out the tooth. "'All right,' whispered back the den tist, 'as yon .-don't want anybody to know, I'll be very quiet about it.'" General Superintendent W. S. Pal mer of the Southern Pacific places all the blame on the teamsters for not clearing the local yards of freight. He said yesterday: "If the teamsters would unload the cars that are set out for them to unload, the work would be advanced and everybody -be benefited. But if we set out forty cars for them, they will tell us that those are not the cars they are looking for, but they want others. We cannot be forever shifting cars to suit the humors of In dividual teamsters." There are altogether 2965 cars In Ban Francisco and vicinity, awaiting to be unloaded. These are distributed as fol lows: In the city, 14&1; Oakland, 619; western division, 314: coast division. 711. On the team track, on Monday, ready for unloading, there were 395 cars, of which only fifty-five were unloaded. On Saturday 238 cars were unloaded In the city yards.. Of these sixty-four were unloaded by Southern Pacific em ployes. . At this rate it would require twelve days; to clean the [ yards with out receiving additional freight.. -On Monday the company began to move tied-up freight west. It; is estimated that there are 3400 cars at Sparks billed for the coast. Agent . Hardy, who was Instructed by W. ',&.' Palmer to keep- an account of the- number; of teams that are unload ing, made the following report lor Saturday: Between the hours of 8 and 9, 15, teams; 9 and 10. 17; 10 and 11, 17; 11 and 12. 12;12 and 1. 2; land 2, 15; 2 and 8, 16: 3 and 4, 14; 4 and 5, 9, or a 'total of 130. Hardy says the number given; every hour cannot be accurate, as some teams take more than": one hour to unload, and neces sarily they were counted twice. H. W. .

DAVID 8. JAMES. San Francisco. March 23. The Smart Set Much interest will doubtless attach to the following bit of news from the Paris edition of the New York Herald in regard to' the marriage of Richard McCreery, who Is so well known here: "The marriage of Lady Grey Eger ton to Mr. Richard McCreery took place at St. Michael's Church, Off ham. It was celebrated by the Rev. F. Fra ser. Among the intimate friends en tertained to luncheon at 14 Hallam street, Portland place, were: The Earl and Countess of .Wilton, Muriel, Vis countess Helmsley, Sir Lewis and Lady Molesworth. the Hon. Mrs. Williams, Lord Claud Hamilton, the Earl of Kin tore, the Hon. Mrs. Johnstone, Mrs. Wayne Cuyler. mother of the bride; Mrs. McCreery. Mr. and Mrs. Walter McCreery. Mr. Craig Wadsworth and others. On returning from the Riviera Lady Grey Efferton and Mr. McCreery will proceed to Marfleld Park. Brack nell, which they have taken." Mr. and Mrs. Peter Martin, who are at present In Paris, will pass the sum mer at Newport, where they have tak en a five-year lease on a villa at Ochre Point, Mrs. Martin's mother and sister, airs. Charles M. Oelrlchs and Miss Blanche Oelrlchs. will leave for Europe on April 18 and will visit tbe Martins for a time In Paris. Miss Frances McKlnstry, who has been in the hospital for a fortnight, where she underwent a slight opera tion, is decidedly better and Is able to return to her home, to the delight of her friends. Dr. and Mrs. Henry Klersted. the lat ter of whom was formerly Mis Edith Mcßean, are still at St. Michael, Alaska, where Dr. Klersted has been stationed for some time, and they will probably remain there until next fall. Dr. Kiersted has been granted three months' leave, to take effect as soon as he arrives In the United States, and their friends are rejoicing that they will probably make a lengthy stay here with Mrs. Klersted's parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. McG. Mcßean. \ ; ; Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Chamberlain. who spent two or three weeks here, re turned last week to Santa Barbara, where they are sojourning Indefinitely. Miss Cora Smedberg is spending sev eral days In town as the guest of friends. Miss Marian Huntlngton has re turned to town after a week's stay at Carmel-by-the-Sea. Mr. and Mrs. George Gardiner, the latter of whom was formerly Miss Edith Findley, will arrive in Califor nia next month from Cleveland. Ohio, where they have made their home since their marriage about three years ago. To the delight of their many friends In San Francisco, there is a strong probability that they will remain here permanently. Mr. Gardiner is thinking of engaging in business b#re and. should his plans not change, they will make their home In, San Francisco. Mrs. Thomas Magee Pr. has taken the Harker cottage in Mill. Valley for, several months and will go over about Curacao Suffers From the Lack of Rain GONSUL E. N. CHENEY reports that the /West Indian island of Cu racao has been passing through a business depression from causes which he explains as follows: "Not more than one Inch a month of rain has fallen in four years, and fully half of that was inside of two months. The latter part of 1905 the ground be came almost destitute of water. Num bers of cattle, sheep, goats and donkeys died of starvation or thirst. Much hay was brought from New York, but its cost was too great to carry far into the Interior. Tbe owners of stock had no money; there was no farming, and gar dening was reduced to the lowest point ever known, being confined only to vi cinities of a few wells with windmills attached. "Continued business depression in Venezuela has also affected Curacao. There has been a further drop in price of real estate; upon more and more of it the bank haa been obliged to fore close, till the bank itself Is land poor. Fortunately, during 1905 the straw-hat business took new life. The whole Isl and—men, women and children — seem to have gone to braiding hats. The Government opened a school of Instruc tion, and many well-to-do ladles learned the art. that they might teach the poor. Attention was given to the finer grade of hats, and the product for 1905 was approximately valued at $125,000. "Imports continue to be about one half from the United btates and It will be hard to improve on that condition, as every great country in Europe has lines of 6teamers touching here; be sides. many x classes of European goods are cheaper and credits are longer. What Is greatly desired Is a parcels post, which would let a variety of small parcels of, American products into tbe islands by mall. "An American company was organ ized in 1905 to secure the guano depos its in the west of the islands, but found them very disappointing in amount. It has already suspended work. Another American company secured rights in certain phosphate lands in the east end, extensively worked a shaft for some months, which promised well, built a good railroad half way to take the products to tide water, tbe rajls being already on the ground, and then suddenly suspended operations. "In order to make the colony more self-supporting \u25a0 and less expensive to the Netherlands Government, a gradu ated income tax was imposed for the first time in 1905. Air incomes of J2500 or more are assessed."

Verse Current in Press of the Nation IN THE CATHEDRAL THE window is of gold, and angels in it throng. And "white wings throb, and faces are upturned in song: The faces shine with light, sweet light for which I long — And then I turn to her who with me gazes on the angel faces. And lo! the glory, too. in her sweet face Above the altar stands a pure, white angel, tall. With outspread wings, and from whose hands sweet blessings fall; "O bless me also, dearest angel." low I call; And then I turn where she I love Is resting 'neath the angel's blessing. And lo! the blessing, too. In her deep eyes doth rest. And I am blest. There Is a great, blue window, and a beam of light Floats through and lingers on the angel's hair, where bright The A face glows 'mid the de«p'nlng 0 shadows of the night. And then I turn where she, adoring. prayeth to the angel soaring. And lo! the light hath kissed her hair, and she doth own The angel's crown. And now the light Is slowly fading. One last smile Of love the angel sheds. I linger on a while. If only from that face one glance 1 might beguile: And then I turn where she is leanlni toward the angel beaming, And lo! the love which from the ange. fills the place Is In her face. — Fred'k Lynch, in the Independent.
