NO more convincing expression of the faith people have in Sari
Francisco could be given than their attitude toward the real
estate market last week. It would not have been surprising
if. under the prevailing conditions, the market had been so
dead as to furnish nothing to record, but instead of a general de
pression there were several notably large transactions, and two
more transfers of consequence would have been consummated but
for delay in making out the necessary papers.
This is certainly a matter of self-congratulation,^f or there is
no industrial disturbance so disastrous to business generally as a
streetcar tieup. The experience of other cities in like circumstances
has been that the realty market was the first to suffer anCrthe last
to revive. In this, as in other matters, San Francisco is unique.
Home seekers have been active in their search for sites on which
to build, and agents who have charge of tracts like Parkside and
along the Mission road report that the comparatively rich and the
relatively poor are in the market for lots.
It is interesting to tFace the recent growth of this city. \ At one
time the movement was toward the ocean, aim' Richmond sprang
into sudden popularity. Then there was a drift to the south, and
new tracts- were opened up. Then again the development seemed
to be nearer town. It was sporadic, likely to manifest itself in any
place, rather through the cleverness of the promoters than on ac
count of unstimulated demand. Now, however,, there is another
kind of growth — natural and strong. It is ; expansion,/ and steady
expansion. There is a keen demand for. homes along Mission road,
and equally as strong a demand in the Richmond district. As a
counterpoise, there is still another demand arising from that class
which, before the disaster, lived in expensive boarding houses,
apartment houses or hotels. New tracts are being opened up for
these people, and, in order to stimulate the market, reasonable terms
are being offered and eagerly accepted. , , : '-- ;
In no other city are such advantages offered for the building
of homes as in San Francisco. Along the highlands overlooking the
bay and facing the Marin shore lots have been "platted which will
give the house owner a wonderful scape; of sea and /mountain.
Another tract which is already being built upon gives .the house
owner a view of the Pacific ocean, k. \u25a0- : '• : ; _; .•
It can safely be said that within ten years San Francisco will
possess more beautiful homes than any other city in the ;United
States — homes which for view and healthy surroundings cannot be
equaled in all the world. ' o,- ™S- .'.''
IT scarcely needed Governor Gillett's declaration to convince the
public that Police Chief Dinan is incompetent— or -worse. He
is not the man for the place in any circumstances,. and least of
all in a time of great peril. Indicted -by one grand jury .and
declared incompetent and inefficient by another, it is scandalous
that he should be continued in control of the most important ex
ecutive department of the municipality.
There can be no doubt that Dinan could have stopped or
rather prevented the fatal rioting that marked the first attempt to
run streetcars. )Ve are not prepared to say mat Divan invited a
riot, but he took no precautions against outbreak or disturbance.
Crowds of hoodlums and loafers seeking a fight were permitted to
congregate around* the carbarns , and exchange defiances with the
strike breakers. Xo sufficient force of police '"was massed at the
strategic points. In a word, Dinan waited for the riots to begin,
and even then he was slow about moving. For the. credit and safety
of the city he should be removed from office.
The whole public will warmly indorse the stand, taken by
Governor Gillctt. He is neither on the side of the strikers nor of
the corporation, but speaks for the great third party mi this unfor
tunate affair. Until the governor appeared on the scene that third
party, the public, had no authoritative voice raised to '• ."present its
cause. The governor declares that law and order must be main
tained, and he means it. ,§an Francisco begins to 1 breathe m6re
freely since Governor Gillett has cleared the atmosphere
Get rid of Dinan. Put a competent man in' his place, and the
police force will be found. sufficient to keep the, peace.
WtIEN Moliere wrote of the man" who was constituted a physi- '!
cian in spite of his own resistance lie could not have foreseen!
the day when an exalted personage pi retiring disposition !
seemed likely to be made president of the' United States in
defiance of his utmost resistance.. The patient and long suffering
Loeb has grown weary of answering in the customary, form of polite
but strenuous, denial the flood^of correspondence that assails the
White House with petitions, prayers and demands that'Thcodore
Roosevelt shajl once more run for president. Locb throws up his
hands in despair. He passes it up. - ' -
Jacob Riis, the noted writer 6iv sociology, is as close to Roose
velt as any man living^ Coming out of the > White ' House the other
day, he was asked the question, "How will President Rooseveit
•prevent his friends from renominating him next year if they make
up their minds to do that?" Mn, Riis gave it up, because, as lie
explained, he was not a politician; but he added: V'l^ know,: how
ever, that Mr. Roosevelt is as much in earnest" today' as' 7 he wasHhe
day he was elected in his refusal tobe! again a candidate^' pn this
point all the testimony agrees. There is no of ; Rooseven's
resolve. \u25a0"•\u25a0\u25a0-
But that does not meet the conditions that are foreshadowed.
There may very- easily be a. stampede of the, convention, resulting
in a unanimous nomination* of Roosevelt, or; on the. other hand,
the reactionaries, who would reverse. Roosevelt's policies,, may be
powerful enough "'to prevent' the nomination t>f any man '\u25a0\u25a0 of- the_
president's, .'schools but himself. .In .these, contingencies Roosevelt's
hand "would "be forced.. " '''"". ",2; \u25a0:—\u25a0\u25a0:;:•'- >:-J.; >;-u : u:y.'> '•;.-. -.-,.- ; . -. \: '\u25a0».
A .New. York newspaper ''unfrieri&y'tb;^
a poll of the; upstate. \u25a0 editors'; r "and the -result showed a unanimous
body of opinion that Roosevelt was. 'stronger "ever before.' "
.That was in New York/ 'In Oregon the Oregonian has been
conducting a similar investigation, with nearly, the" same results.
The Oregonian says V . .. •...-*•« . a
Yesterday the Oregonjdn printed typical. and copious extracts from a
series of letters in. which representative editors in all parts of Oregon express

Roosevelt's popularity and the advisability; of hjs;*aecepting a nomination ;f6r

definitely that his controversy with Harriman has endeared him to the public.
By demonstrating exactly where the 'president stands .with , regard to the
predatory interests and showing 'that his relations, with the magnates are
becoming personally unfriendly it has 'niade -i.the plain : people' feel more
decisively than heretofore that lie. is. their champion through evil . and;good
report, without, reservation or evasion. To many this quarrel presents a
providential aspect because it has brought out with unwavering -clearness
both Mr. Roosevelt's devotion to the cause which he serves and the lengths
to which the magnates will go'in their efforts to thwart him. •.
; There} is another thing: The Oregon editors: are for Roosevelt,
but they are not* at -all sure that hehasjthe 'right to name his suc
cessor.; In; polities' the personal equation" is- more than policies ; men
are bigger than measures: That is the,- reason why : the American

THE ;-. course of promotion in /the army. "is; 'usually, a sore subject,

It is agreeable, therefore,, to discover one case where a certain
fine magnanimity took the place Sf rigid insistence on the letter

way so that an aged veteran; with a civil war record may be given
due reward which otherwise; might not ,have^come;his; way. A state- ;

Concerning the recent promotion of General McCaskey, notwithstanding

that prior to General McCaskey'sv promotion . he. had personally 'received
a'letter.from;General Funston =jri which. the latter said -that he had no" objec

Creation of a Playgrounds
Board Pleases Clubwomen
T'HB clubwomen, of the state
have been - pleased greatly by
the creation In San Francisco
of a playground commission com
posed ' entirely of women. For
more than a year the local clua
women had , striven to awaken interest
in the question of playgrounds for
children. - The appointment of Mrs. K.
L.:. Baldwin as chairman of the xcom
missionhas caused rejoicing among her
fellow members of the California club.
As a- member of the civic department
of the California club the had worked
long . and energetically to induce the
city authorities ' to give attention to
the -matter.* A; few month* ago the
mayor took up the subject and recently
organized the commission' along the
lines suggested by Mrs. Baldwin. As
sociated with her s on ' the -commission
are , Mrt. Aylette : Cotton. . Miss C I*
Griffith.. Mrs. John F. Merrill and Mrs.
M. S. Koshland. aBSS
The powers of the commission are not
restricted* to mere supervision- of the
playgrounds.,: ,The women- will recom
mend . to . the city authorities - the pur
chase of additional grounds, will over
see the arrangement of the places, plan
their adornment and supervise their
use. The women have held one meet
ing and have decided to inspect tha
field thoroughly before outlining plans
of action. They will meet again thi3
week andLexehange views.
"Our work so far has consisted mere
ly in looking over the situation." said
Mrs. 'Baldwin- yesterday. "Under the
bond, issue only two new playgrounds
are* provided for, but it is our hop<»
that we will _be able to . arrange for
more. We desire to distribute play
grounds throughout the city in the
sections where there are the most chil
dren so that all of them could enjoy
the exercise and the fresh air. Then
we hope to teach the children* how to
play. Many of them really do not
know how." \u25a0 /
The playground movement has gained
a new impetus throughout the country
during the last year through the ac
tivity of the women's clubs.

an a>t;ioan exihbltlon on April IS,". 19

way. A large private dwelling, "empty
for the time being, centrally located
and surrounded by beautiful grounds,
was obtained for the exhibition and
every room was used in showing the.
large collection of rare objects of art,
marbles, paintings, laces, bronzes, rare
china, cut glass, brasses and curios
loaned by friends. The red room up
stairs was devoted to a collection of:
rare and beautiful objects of art loaned
by Mr. and Mrs. . C.-V. Parker of Villa
Marie, being a part of their collection
brought from Europe. The exhibition,
was opened the first evening by an ad
dress by Judge Covert, superior judge
i of Klng3 county, in which he called at
tention to the educational value of the'
display and spoke of the thanks due
to the women of the Hanford dub for
their many efforts for the advancement
of the community. A fine musical pro

a series of beautiful "living pictures"
was arranged by a committee of club
