SINNER RUEF ON THE MOURNERS' BENCH
A LWAYS there comes a period in the history .of municipal
I\ bribery scandals- when panic seizes the offenders. In the
famous Tweed exposures in New York the panic fell when
Tweed, the arch corruptionist, fled the country. That broke
the rinsr: the pieces fell apart and the rest was not difficult. .In
the San Francisco graft investigation the panic dates from Ruef's
capture in the suburban resort to which he had fled. Deprived
of his directing counsel the boodlers fell apart and ran for cover.
One after the other they confessed their crimes, and novy Ruef
himself follows their example. That may be taken to be the mean
ing of his plea of guilty ' made yesterday to the indictment for
extortion. It is a bid for mercy on" terms.
Ruefs public statement made in court confirms this explana
tion of his action where he says :
During the past two weeks I have thought deeply and often of this
situation, its causes and conditions. To offer excuses now would be folly.
To xrake an effort at some reparation for the public good is, however, more j
than possible.' To assist in making more difficult, if not impossible, the
system which dominates our public men and corrupts our. politics will be a
welcome task. I have decided that whatever energy, or abilities I . possess
for the future shall be devoted, even in the humblest" capacity, to restoring
tfce ideals that have been lowered.
The props were knocked from under the whole conspiracy
of boodle, bribery and graft when Ruef was taken into custody.
The leader of the gang, secluded from his familiars, saw all his
schemes stranded, shipwrecked. His easy tools ran for safety. It
was a case of the devil take. the hindmost, and Ruef has finally
decided that he shall not be made to suffer for the sins of all.
. It is impossible yet to estimate the full effect or ultimate bear
ing of Ruef's confession. It may be complete or it may be only
partial. The Call is inclined to think that it will be found com
plete in air particulars. Heney and Burns fire not men to be
satisfied with less, and they have handled confessing sinners before'
The auger of cross examination, once given a hold, bores deep
It is the beginning that is hard and difficult. *
What does all this mean? Its primary and most important
bearing is on the promised indictment of people "higher up."
Schmitz and Calhoun and maybe others still higher and more
dangerous are in greater peril than ever- of the penitentiary. The
kingpin of the whole machinery of bribery has been pulled out
and the entire apparatus is tumbling about their ears.
There need be no quarrel with Ruefs special plea for mercy.
The excuses that he puts forth in his own justification are obviously
and painfully weak, but who would be ungenerous to the fallen
who repents? . - \u25a0 ' -. . \u25a0\u25a0
All this is a splendid and . striking triumph- for Francis 'j-
Heney and William J. Burns. It is justification ''strong as holy
writ for any promises they may have made. -Mr. Langdon >has
done his share. They have made good one and all. The promise
that Heney made in his speech at the Mechanics' pavilion is
redeemed and the vilification that followed his promise is turned
on his pursuers.
FORAKER CRYING FOR QUARTER
THE postponement of the Ohio political conference and the
meeting of the republican state committee means "merely that
Foraker .is . already on his knees crying; for ..'quarter: Not long
ago it was the prevailing belief among polititians that Forakd
and Dick controlled the organization, but the Taft people appear
to have taken it away from the senators.
Taft has shown surprising strength in his home state. The
politicians have come to realize that the people -are^behind the
secretary of war on the personal issue raised \by Foraken fQf
twenty-one congressmen in Ohio seventeen have declared for Taft',
and one who at first took sides with Foraker has experienced' a
change of heart and is making overtures to be taken into the Taft
camp. It is already certain that Taft will have a. majority of the
Ohio delegation, and the only question that . remains open is
whether it will be solidly behind him.. '
. Foraker might be.able to split the delegation, and thisy is /doubt
less the basis of present overtures ~ from "that camp. It iis "quite
doubtful whether the Taft people^ will engage in' any such,negotia
tions. . George 8. , C0x, the Cincinnati boss. ; thre\y out- a feeler^ of
the same kind when he proposed the compromise by Which Foraker
was to succeed himself as senator and Taft was: to have the
gation to the . national convention of next year. But when Repre
sentative Burton, speaking for the Taft, forces,, ;, refused > to\ have
anything to do with Cox or his proposals, even Foraker was com
pelled to repudiate the Cincinnati boss, more in sbrFoiv, of course,
than m f anger. Foraker politics does not appear" to; be v e specially
prosperous in Ohio this season. g^§|jggypßßiHfafißß| *\u25a0'.
SOME REMARKABLE IMMIGRATION FIGURES
IN 1905. for the first time in the history; of the /United- States, the
immigration figures passed the- 1^)00,000 mark, in >» tHat yearilhe
influx of. alien immigrants' was .1,027,421; \u25a0' Last year it -was
1,062,084. Since 1901 up to the .beginnings of -'the "present "year;
the total was ; 6,097,655,, which ; is; greater than- the , whole f number
of immigrants for any previous decade. If the : present; rate is
maintained the immigration for . this decade wilL be; 'double ; that; of
the highest previous ten year, period and about^ four; times as. great
as the average since 1851. The figures are. testimony i tojthe[abound
ing, prosperity of the country in- the -pastihalf dozen -years^ because

high wages and plenty of work are the causes- of the increase; but
they have other features; which are less agreeable. -
Something of this^appears from the recent figures of popula
tion given out by the national" census bureau/ For, 1904 the popu
lation of the United States, excluding Alaska and ithe islands; was
905^i^^;82»^;i^jVf6r>19(^;itfes
83,941,510. From these figures the increase for ;1905- was 1.312,339,
of which 1,027,421; was alien immigration,Vand for 1906 the increase
was 1,367,315, of .which 1,062,084 was by immigration. The native
born increase, therefore, -for 1905' was only 185,840 and for 1906
266,580. These are startling results _if they are true. They mean
that within a period easily calculated the- whole native born popu
lation, will -virtually be ; replaced by immigration; j chiefly from"
southwestern Europe, with; some, help,; perhapsj (from Asia; : "The
census bureau estimates may not be accurate, but if; they are any
where near the mark they ; disclose a condition: that imperatively
calls for regulation. The native birth rate will ] increase in a normal
way- when the field of opportunity is not ' usurped and - crowded by
an ; alien .'population, v with: the lowest" ;Standards ; ;of Hiving: This is
the; doctrine ; that; .California ;.has~ preached to the- sister states^ ever;
since 1880 i in connection hwith yAsiatic^immig/ation:':'' B They'. : Sy|li : ;find^
that it applies i with nearly equal; force- to the- hordes rthat" come
here from southwestern; Europe. _'\u25a0".'' -The' : only.-" material difference is
that we can assimilate the Europeans of- the; second generation,
while "that is impossible.with Asiatics.
