•^HONEST GENE"
THE picture of Eugene Schmitz, mayor of San Francisco for
nearly six years, by the graft exposures, makes, a.
painful, even disgusting exhibition of degraded human nature.
Greedy,, rapacious, selfish, reaching out for the last dishonest
dollar, he stands exposed to public view."? Everything was for sale
and nothing sacred. He was as ready., to share the earnings of
unfortunate women as to sell for his own profir a franchise that
belonged to the people. The force of degradation could no
farther go. . . "
It is customary to speak with the last contempt of those miser-
; able creatures who live off the earnings of; fallen Women. The \
mayor of San Francisco differs from.these in nothing save in so fad
as he pocketed the same wages of shame on a wholesale scale. j
The details of the blackmailing, operation at the expense of
[the French restaurants offer a fair example of. Schmitz' cold
jblooded rapacity. To make the game .and lay the foundation he
J assumed an impressive attitude as' guardian of the morals of San
i Francisco. He started his hounds to run down the quarry, and at
the right moment Ruef intervened to allay, the mayor's uneasy
virtue at a price. AH that looked easy and simple and would have;
worked smoothly and profitably 'had-, the. 'mayor's ,packV Blanche, !
Tray and Sweetheart, proved answerable to the whip. Two of them
rebellious. The mayor called his police commission about
.him at his home to give the orders that* meant. money for him and
» Ruef. Two of the four refused obedience, but the ; mayor , was not
tto be balked of his price and removed Commissioner; Hutton.,; ln
; his message of dismissal the action was based oh Vcharges affect
ing Hutton's moral character. The true reason was. that Hutton
refused to join in the game of blackmail: The whole episode was
characterized by cold blooded rapacity, helped out with falsehood.
Compared with the overhead trolley deaf the French restaurant
.blackmail was mere petty larceny." But ; Schmitz let nothing
escape, big or little. He was a wolf out for his kill. Ruef ."was
his ready instrument, to do the dirty work. Schmitz supplied the
motive power and took the chief share of the spoils. He* even
suspected Ruef of holding, out more than his due reward; and
held him to strict account for every dishonest dollar. When
•'Schmitz had milked the cow dry he went to Europe, where his
! lavish' extravagances made a nine days' wonder. .
For six months past Eugene Schmitz has denounced the news
tpapers of San Francisco as engaged in a wicked conspiracy to
\u25a0slander an honest official and destroy his good 'name. He has
(engaged in the silly stage play of refusing to see representatives
i of the press in order to act up to the part: of injured innocent. ; But
PJ nothing the newspapers have ever said of him isasbad as the truth.
This is "honest Gene" Schmitz, big, bluff and hearty, who used
xo go around shaking- hands, hail fellow well^jnet. He is seen now
in his real colors, cold, grasping, covetous and vicious to the. point
cf degradation. W^^^^^^^ :
THE FAULT , LIES WITH DINAN
THE building trades council adopted this resolution on Thurs
day night: |
Resolved, That in our opinion the speediest and only settlement and |
supcessful termination of the streetcar men's strike can be best effected!
through strict maintenance of public peace and close observance of law 1
j and order, andby faithful obedience to union; principles by> all union >men; i
! women and children in refusing to ride'orin any manner -patronize {those :
i «*o- ride on cars of the United Railroads until such time, as -its "manage- :
jxnent* signs a satisfactory agreement with the duly" authorized representa-'
itives of the amalgamated association of Street railway employe,?, division. 205<J
The resolution is explicit recognition of » the fact that the
{carmen's strike cannot be won by violence, and,, further,, that the
jcommission of outrages is directly injurious to the cause : of the
, strikers.
San Francisco is^ determined to have'peace on the-streets, and '
ithose who engage, in violence or commit any overt act wiir be !
treated as public enemies. The police, as a whole, are doing their";
dutj'. The occasional exceptions: would quickly disappear had the
jforce at its head a man competent and willing to maintain disci
pline. Diriajri is both incompetent and disloj'al.
Under legal indictment for a felony, the moral charge hds been ]
jlodged against* Dinan— he is his own^chLef accuser— of a crime
far worse* than perjury.'.; There is bioVd -on Dinan's fat, useless »
hands— the blood of those slain in" thc^riot^ which he. should' have \
iprevented, which he admits he .' could^liaye prevented if he had beeni
Unformed that it was going-to happen.^ Against Dinan will be
\u25a0charged up ultimate moral responsibility* for every act of .;v ; iolence
|during this strike. The chief of police could end all the disorder if he
( were riot Djnan, the incompetent and unfit. *
THUS^ THE "BAD MAN" PASSES
JfTPIHERE is. to; be observed in many widely separated quarters
I a distinct and unmistakable movement or cult, if the term "is
J^ preferred," based on a safe, sane ' v ; and conservative philosophv
with purpose to discourage tlie usV!pf:the "guii" ; as \u25a0• an > article

stop the practice of carrying pistols in Texas: •; ' /
