THE supervision and examination of state and municipal admin
istration by outside agency is under consideration* by other
communities than San Francisco. Thus we find that Governor
Stokes of New Jersey, in his message to the legislature, makes
these recommendations:
The service of the state could be greatly improved and rendered more
efficient if there was some provision for a proper, judicial and fair investiga
tion and examination'of the various state departments and commissions and
boards. The creation of- a permanent^body for this work would not seem
to t>e necessary. Provision could be made for a commission that could be
called into existence at staled times or when needed. I would. have a com
mission appointed by the chief justice, with the powers of investigation and
recommendation. This commission should make an examination of state
affairs every three or five years or at such other <imes as would seem 'to be
warranted by any specific case or condition. It would be judicial in character.
In the performance of its functions it would have but one object, namely,
to increase the efficiency and economy of the public, service, so far as the
state was concerned. It would not be partisan or political in its delibera
tions. It would not seek to make political capital. It would serve the
interests of the public by investigating with a view to improve conditions.
Xor should such a supervision and examination be confined to state
affairs. The management of our counties and our municipalities and the
expenditure of moneys for local purposes are even more important to the
tax payer than the affairs of the state.
The state of California has a body of this kind in the board
of examiners, but that commission is a mere' makeshift. Being Com
posed of the governor, the secretary of state and the attorney gen
eral^ the duties of the board are mostly left to the secretary, because
the officials named have plenty of occupation with their own special
functions. Besides, the duties 6£ this board are only concerned with
the audit of accounts and claims. TThere is no supervision of admin
istration, and if there were it would be worthless, because tainted
with politics. What is wanted is independent supervision of! the
sort which it is proposed to organize for San Francisco. Such an
organization takes money and public spirit, but it will. pay. The.
idea is akin to that which was put as the inspiration of
the "People's Lobby,*' which proposed to watch affairs at the
national capital in the public interest.
X I iHE impudent defiance of law by town officials of Sausalito,
I wiio, appear as backers of a. criminal business, is intolerable. and
J_ doubtless will not be tolerated. The regularly constituted
authorities of Marin county will, v we feel assured; be able and
competent to deal with this one horse rebellion.- We do not believe
that the townsfolk of Sausalito desire to secede from the state of
California. It is merely that a bunch of grafting officials are trying
to earn their bribes. It is quite clear that' some of thehv ought
to-be in jail. • '
We do not believe, leaving morals out of the question and only
considering the economic aspects — we^do'not believe that it pays
Sausalito to elect officials of that type and stripe. The existence of
gambling.dens close to the ferry landing, injures real estate! There
is no more charming she for family residences than the picturesque
slopes of Sausalito, which overlook the bay. But people who have
families to bring up do not seek a tainted neighborhood. The
vicinity of the Sausalito water front, gambling hells cuts vaiues'
in half. In San Francisco the most S'aluable residence property is
that which overlooks the Golden gate. Sausalito. has the same out
look, with more shelter, but the poolrooms frighten away investors.
The property, owners ought to be able to spend as much money
on a campaign to clean out the town as the Harvey and Daroux
gang can afford for purposes of corruption. As a simple busi
ness proposition it would pay. .
TIME was when the fur seal industry was important ; t6 San
Francisco, but the old days when fortunes were raadeiby* the
men of the Alaska commercial company are long pas^and under
the. destructive influence of pelagic scaling the industry: has
shrunk to insignificant proportions and remains chiefly a cause for
periodical international wranglings. '-.':.':\u25a0'
The Japanese are the most recent to pick a quarrel orf this score
and their pretensions are backed up in Canada, which in years gone
used to send out a fleet of seal poachers and pirates, who if they
could not get skins enough at sea were always ready to raid the
island rookeries if they thought they could. escape. our revenue cut
lers. Thus the Toronto Globe raises the old complaint :
\u25a0Japan is in no mood to' treat the "United, States as the spoiled child i
of the nations in granting the Paci fie 'ocean for a seal preserve to the North
American fur trading company, s corporation that seems* to manipulate* the
government and a large part of the ; pre£s;of the; United* States. The^aps
will not even;grant the 60 mile zone, nor surrender their right to' use guns
in capturing seals on the' high seas. In this "attitude they are ; quite within
their rights, and while it. may be irritating ifor;Canadian sealew to be warned
off by American gunHoats. while the Japs; areVcapturing seals under <thdr
tioses, the preservation of international rights on the high seas- will be'Yound
ultimately to the advantage of all nations. ' --
The British govcrnment'eo-bperates with the United States for
the preservation of the seal, but Jthis course has never , pleased tiie
Canadians, and the ! Globe hiritf that tlieinfluence.ofthe London -fUr
trade was brought into 'play ; ;to^nng; the; British^ goveriTment into
line. The Alaska commercial company^^solH',s33,o(X)sooo wortlr of
seal skins in London during^c first^ twenty-three" years* of its ex
istence, but that was.longago^aadrthe trade is if comparatively small
nowadays. The Globe says That "the'claimrof \u25a0th0 v companyVthat
pelagic sealing was destroying, the herds'^a^easily exploded v by
the observations of CanadiarjXiriaturaiists," Doubtless./ That isTwHat
experts are' for. The American naturalistsVarriyed : at a directly

opposite conclusion. But the fact remains jbeyond dispute. that ;the
herds have been almost completely destroyed: \" :1j" "\ 1
It was a gold mine while it lasted ( and it kept .diplomacy
wrangling for a score of years. James G. Blame made a heroic stand
to convince the nations thatthe practice of shooting seals at sea
ought to be stopped. First of all, he argued that the" Bering was a
closed sea, almost partaking of the nature of an inland lake, and
therefore a gam 6 preserve of the riparian proprietors. LThis conten
tion had small prosperity '^ and Mr.' Blame next had recourse to the
argument that shooting seals at sea in breeding time was; contrary
to good morals. The stony hearted diplomatists of peffididus Albion
refused to. see it in that light, but finally they^fixed up a convention
on a trading basis. Japan was not party to that convention and sends
but a fleet of poachers every year. '.Last year some of these pirates
were shot while making a raid on one of the rookeries. / \u25a0
It is a dying industry. The insatiable poacher, whether legally
or illegally, will not give the herds a chance.
DR. FELIX ADLER;of New York, lecturing, in this city on
Tuesday night on "The World Mission of American Democ
racy," had this to say: ' • .;
Today we can hardly say. America is a refuge for .the!, poor .and
oppressed of 'even European races. We , rather, feel that the. oppressed in
Europe should help themselves. If all [thej oppressed in Russia- should come
here we should look upon it as a calamity. :.* Still -less are we a refuge to
oriental nations. \ . '" ° ; '-" !: -
. A nation must be a unity, not .too, greatly ;mixcd or alloyed. It must
preserve its , type.. There . must 4 b^; a- common language * and traditions, a
common point of view, or there cannot' be unity. The .nation -would ,, be
broken up if large numbers of people, without these things in common, l were
introduced. All 'those who arc - : capable of assimilating with the t prevailing
type in the country.'ithe Anglo-Saxon .race, are welcome' as' ingredients in
the hew type that is to be developed. ;• ; : > •
, That seems like pretty good doctrine and it is ;not especially
new on this meridian, but we fear that if it were propound
certain quarters' of the east it would be characterized as vulgar "race
prejudice/ v -^ -\u25a0 \.. •
A nation must have a common point of view: and, preserve its
type^ / ; if it is to live. It is obvious, that we cannot these
standards; if we permit the unrestricted; immigratiombf^ Asiatics/- If
that be race prejiidice^makc the most of it; :' '\u0084 "'• \u0084-.<,'\u25a0 ••"*'.

THE operating officials of the
Southern Pacific say that the
freight situation has returned to
normar conditions, and for a few
days at least they add that the mer
chant has been unable, to exercise hlB
privilege; of grumbling. They declare
that freight is moving with as much
regularity as the ferry, tower clock and
that the movement of f fleght cars out of
Sparks is to be highly commended. For
the last 10 days an average of 243 loads
have left Sparks, and 20 Pacific fruit ex
press cars which are being "hurried -to
the southern part of the state. As. for
the condition nearer home, it has 1 as
sumed a halcyon .appearance \u25a0 for the
operating, department,- and -the follow^
ing figures were^quoted yesterday in
support of their contention: There were
1,363 dars in the San Francisco yards,
76 in Oaklancj for the city, lol on the
coast division and 304 .in the north
ern district. I All these cars," they, say,
could be put Without any inconvenience
in*-the\San ''Francisco : yards and could
be cleaned up in five days. Merchants,
too, are -given their share of credit, for
they 'have 'shown a/praiseworthy. spirit
In hastening .the work of unloading,
for,onthe ; '2sth of this month 31)3 cars
were , unloaded jby the consignees, .and

! 'However/ it did not take the sister? long to gather' around them . sorre

Ultra-bohemia and gave afternoon teas in their studio, and soon sach high
and mighties as Lord Rosebery's daughter, Lady Sybil Primrose, and th?
Marquis of Alva were on their calling list. Violet, Lady Rosslyn, tiad her
portrait painted b>\ Miss Eva Almond- Withrow and Lady Sybil took singing
lessons of Miss Marie. Marie Tempest, the prima donna. wa3 also a
pupil of ; Miss'. Marie. It was soon apparent to the two Californians that
' they had done well in casting their lines in such a pleasant place as London.
j But they came back to their old town, where Miss Eva had learned tue
'beginnings of her art at the Hopkins and where Miss Marie had once been
teacher of singing in the public schools. They could not get their old home
in Pine street, for it had another tenant. v but they found a house farther out
|in the same street. It was a lucky chance for them_ that their old home
was unavailable, for the fire ate it up with all that was in it. but did not
extend out so far as their new studio. They saved everything and the Press
club now occupies the house.

Phoebe DaVteS AS in hcf nat | YC state . j t j5j 5 many' a Ions;
Seen On the, Stage . year since, she has appeared on the local
stage, though' she made her. debut, here. She was only 16 then, a slip of
a girl with great dark eyes and a musical voice. She had.no end of talent
and I believe could have won her place among the great American stars.
; She married an actor, Joe Grismer, Bohemian club member and intimate
friend of Clay Greene and Frank linger, and they acted together in plays
that Grismer and others wrote for and around their particular talents. Then
they went east and in time found themselves under the management of
another enterprising ex-Californian, "Bill" Brady. Brady is the parent of the
"b'gosh" drama.- When he saw what a mine there was in- the rural stage
picture he kept steadily at its exploitation. "Way Down East," his biggest
money winner, made shekels for the Grisiners as well as for the manager.
For many years Phoebe Davies has appeared only under the Brady manage
ment. She is rich and owns -property in the east and in California, but one
wonders what she might have made- of herself had she kept to her original
style of plays. I, for .one, cannot forget her piquant "Chispa" and her
wonderful impersonation of the unfortunate heroine in "The Fool's Revenge.'*
