IT is not clear why Eugene E. Schmitz should. be accorded privi
leges hot permitted" to any other convict in the county jail. \\c
cannot profess to define with any exactitude the present political
and official status of Schmitz. We do not know whether he is
mayor of San Francisco or not in the eye of the law. He has him
self, in an affidavit filed in. court, announced that he is for the
present unable to fulfill the duties' of mayor, being temporarily
incapacitated by the fact of. his confinement in jail. But this [
confinement apparently does not prevent him from traveling about
the city on his private business. It is, one may suppose, the sort
of confinement that interferes only with official business. * , -
v Wc would not be understood to complain that' Schmitz is
neglecting his official duties. ' Indeed, his past activities in that
line have been purely pernicious. His idea of, official duty. and
function is to promote some "dirty scheme of plunder. He has
thought of nothing else for a. year; and the results may be seen
in the neglected condition of our streets and the pitiful paralysis
that afflicts every form of municipal activity. .
Schmitz is quite right. when he swears that" he is unable to
perform his official duties, and this rule ought to hold both ways,
unless, in the mind of Sheriff O'Neil, there is* one law for the rich
and powerful and another for the poor. The vagrants and petty
larccnors and defectives in : the sheriff's custody are. not driven
around the city in automobiles in pursuit of private * business.
O'Xeil's sympathy with graft and grafters is notorious. This state
of mind finds further , illustration in his treatment of Schmitz." v
It may be urged that Schmitz has the right to see his attorneys.
Undoubtedly. But that right does not include excursions in auto
mobiles. He has been ordered into confinement by the court;
O'Neil is in disobedience of that'order. If the mayor wants to see
his attorneys they can visit him at the county jail under the same
conditions and restrictions that apply-or should apply to, all
prisoners. ....
. ; If it should ..be observed that, a similar measure of liberty was
accorded to George D. Collins, under conviction of perjury, the
obvious answer is that .Collins was his own attorney, and there was.
some justification -for stretching- a point so that he could be per
mitted to visit the law library;' - ' :
There is novreason for- making -a' distinction between Schmitz
and any other convict; no reason except O'NeiVs sympathy with
graft and grafters' '-''" '.' ; V
THERE is tremendous pother buzzing in eastern editorial rooms

Popular indignation has reached a degree never before witnessed in the.
history oi. Japan's relations with the^ .United States. Some of the newspapers
are. urging dcmJ6nstrati6ns [ ahd encouraging War talk, recalling' the
fact that the United ;States sent troops, to China to jirdtecfmissionarics 'Who
were being treated no more harshly than are Japanese citizens now living in
San Francisco. *.-,*»» .:»-.-.-«:,- :>•]
-•"'While this threat : and talk of conflict between Japan..and the United
States over the. San Francisco. riots or any other question is* unwarranted- and

S"*] OcONEL HEUER; lite of: the i/dn-gineer- corps, United States
|;;v army,- is. quoted as.'sayjn^that the. cost of bringing; water froni
y/y the headwaters of the Tuolurnne ) river to/Sari Francisco would
lie $69,000,0 CX), including: the ilocal ''distributing system. /If his
figures arc correct, they are pFbfiiliiii.V*©/***:^??^-^^' ' ' \u25a0 /
/. We believe that Colonel HcucxV 'estimate is founded on niisap
pr^hension of fact,' for which he/is in no respect to blame. He has
made no independent examination of tlie cost of this" project, buthas
tafcen the estimate of; rormer.Gity Engineer G.'E.;Gr,unsky, supple-.,
mented by some expert testimony tak^ihjthV:^
case.before a mVster.in^chahceryi.of-ihe^UnitedStat^
/ This was/expert tes'timoriy.^given'ohbehaif of the water^ornpany,
and it was characterizeJd by a . very curious; error. The experts /for
the corporation assunWd that: Mr. Grunsky's estimate made pro
vision only for a single pipe line to bring this water to San Franciscoi
The assumption was wholly erroneous^ as inspection of the city engi
neer's report would' have'; shown. believe; this error to be | the
basis of the assertion made -by -Golonel'Heuer, that : "it was ;showh/iri
a hearing before Judge" Morrow that Grunsky had .omitted itom[ his
estimate necessary; features to 'the extent of an additional $16,000,000.
This very curious error ran- all through the':. expeft5 r testimony.
We" quote from Mr. Grunsky's report. his i' specifications for pi^e lines :
From the intake reservoir at the. Dry/' creek '.'power- station. the':water will
be carried across San; Joaqnin' valley., in two riveted . pipes,^.4Bl inches, in
diameter. ' \u25a0'. '..-- : -' : ' •:'-., : \u25a0\u25a0."''\u25a0 .. . -.. : -. \u25a0:'•:.•' - # - : \u25a0'\u25a0•''\u25a0 •\u25a0 - T -- '''--r
Water is to be conducted 'from j Al tamount } reservoir .to .San Francisco
in two 48 inch riveted pipes similar in character, to those describe"d.'as cross
ing the San Joaquin valley. • ": ; ":*A -^ < . •; ; r,- .\u25a0 -\u25a0'-_. '
When Mr. Grunsky's estimate was made "jit was" generally un
derstood among engineers that it was liberal to the point of excess.
Of course it was to the interest of Spring Valley to prove that it was
too low, and the case for thecity has.not-been presented because the
suit has been allowed to sleep since the /grafters took office. "
If Colonel Heuer's figures-are correct, how>wi|l Los Angeles come
out with the Owens river project?' /The source of supply for ; Los
-Angeles is 150 miles farther from that city/ than HetchHetcKy is
from San. Francisco. If Jt would, cost San. Francisco $69,000,000 to
bring water from HetchHetchy and distribute/ it here, Los Angeles
will get off cheaply with \ sloo,ooo,ooo for^the fOwehs river project. ;
They, voted bo'ndsr for $23,000,000 the other: dajf/for ; ; the/workj- and
they have, an/idea/ that this money should vbe nearly /enough to'-cpni-.

the nerve of vanity. There are few underpaid slaves of the daily press who
worry about compositors' mistakes nowadays. Since copy had to be type

Considerable interest is reit in
railroad circles as to what tran
spired last Saturday at~th^'me"et
*ing- of -th« interstate r commerce
commission in Washington-.. Tha "con
ference was called to consider the pay
; m«nts of commissions by railway lines
to railroad and to_ steamship agents. It
is rumored here that the primary cause
of the meeting la the commission paid,
by certain differential lines between
Chicago and New . York- to railroad
agents ori all classes of business. Mtis
said that* the commission on emigrant
business has reached as high as $6 a
passenger, and it is known that $3 is
being paid freely as a commission by 1
railway lines. As this is apt to lead
to rate cutting, the subject has been
thought worthy . of investigation. None
of the lines west of- Chicaso is con
cerned, as it is believed thattbe agree
ment made in 1893 is being lived up to'
absolutely. This agreement was rati
fied by the executive officers or the
chairmen of the boards of the different
roads; and it. is not thought that a"fljr
traffic officer of a western railroad has
broken away, from' the .understanding.
The only/ business o'nVwhich commis
sions, are now being paid.'-by -western
lines-are round the world and "emigrant
business from Europe. . ;"-.. -I /-«*,"
