PLAIN DUTY OF THE CONVENTION *OF THIRTY
A GREAT civic duty has been laid upon those organizations
v/\v /\ of labor and capital which have been requested to choose San
"^^"l^ Francisco's new mayor. It is a duty that cannot be ignored.
"*" "*" The graft prosecution lias waged relentless, successful
war on governmental rottenness. It has made a jungle of unspeak-'
able administrative filth an open plain. It has razed the citadel of
the worst administration that ever disgraced the annals of Ameri
can municipalities. The destructive work is done. The ground is
prepared for the erection of a municipal government which shall be
a model for the cities of the world. The constructive work has been
placed where it belongs — in the hands of the people.
True to. the promise made by Rudolph Spreckels at the incep
tion of the graft prosecution, the district attorney's office has refused
to play politics with the situation it controls. For the solution of
San Francisco's most important problem the district attorney has
submitted a plan which will cpmmend itself to the sane, conservative
members of all classes and political organizations.
The rehabilitated government must be built around an honest,
energetic, competent mayor. Time presses. Such a mayor must
•oe chosen immediately. The body of the people cannot be appealed
lo until the November elections. The graft prosecution has turned
to those organizations which may be fairly considered representa
tive of the whole people. The delegates and the responsibility
appear to be equitably apportioned among the organizations of
employers* and employes. There can be no question of class or
partisan advantage. This is no time, for class- or partisan: differ
ences. The graft prosecution and the people of San Francisco have
the right to expect and they do expect that the organizations
appealed to will respond as one man. They should and they undoubt
edly will assume cheerfully the duty laid upon them. In the man
ner of their response lies the test of San Francisco's cryic virtue — the
prophecy of the city's future.
The Call has no candidate for the mayoralty, nor will it have.
This newspaper believes that, in this hour of the city's need, the
men of San Francisco will do the city and themselves full justice
and will select a mayor belonging to all San Francisco and not to |
any faction or special interest.
Partisan and industrial differences must be left outside the
door of the convention. The Call believes they will be. If the dele
gates enter upon their service animated solely .by the desire to serve
San Francisco, the work of genuine rehabilitation will be quickly
and satisfactorily accomplished.
STANDARDIZING THE MILLIONAIRE
TT' is reported on credible authority that John D. Rockefeller
1 regrets his investment of $20,000,000 in the University of Chi-
J_ cago. He has installed a great plant; designed to improve the
breed of millionaires and he gets no results. He is so much
depressed that on the occasion of his recent compulsory visit to
Chicago he overlooked the child of his pocket as if it had been
merely 30 cents. He finds the output of this institution of learn
ing quite discouraging. The effort to standardize the millionaire
appears to have failed. , .
"The only regret I have concerning the university," says Mr.
Rockefeller, "is that there are not as many men as successful as I
hoped there would be after their schooling there." Such are the
sorrowful limits to the power of wealth. Mr.- Rockefeller- spends
$20,000,000 to make men after his own image and finds in the end
that they look, like college " professors rather than ? millionaire
products. - *
Mr. Rockefeller will not, it is hoped, be utterly discouraged.
There is room for improvement in the breed of millionaires.* He
cannot spend "his ill gotten gains" in a better cause, and itf is
obsen'ed with satisfaction that he has' two strings ''to His bow.
The Rev. Dr. Faunce, who passed through San Francisco the other
day, is president of Brown university and was formerly pastor ; 'bf
Mr. Rockefeller's church in New York. "Dr. Faunce freely gives
a handsome certificate of good moral character to Mr. Rockefeller.
"The integrity and high purposes of Mr. Rockefeller's life," says
Dr. Faunce, "cannot now be properly understood, but his; detractors
will learn in, time that he is what his intimates believe him to-be, a
simple and sincere man.*'
Thus it might seem that the way ;to the kingdom of heaven
must be paved with gold. It makes no . difference how the gold
was acquired. The appointed guardians for the way of salvation
are sure that money. carries no taint. Non i olet.; Mr. RockefeTler
As for Chicago, it is humiliating to find that city unable to
turn out millionaires with the; same facility as sausages. Possibly^
the-millionaire, like the poet, is born, not made. - The .poet givesUo
his airy nothings a; local habitation^ and a name. Thermillionaife
takes his watery nothings and calls them stock certificates Finance
and poetry are chiefly creatures of the imagination— kings in tKe

WILSON TO THE ASH BARREL
tN interesting and instructive commentary on. the state of mind
of \u25a0 our "governing classes" is f urn ished by the fact that they
can spare a .rascal or two, ifor 'the^sake.of^ - appearances;^ and
still, retain full control of the '.reins of power. It: is* announced'
that Andrew Wilson 'will be quietly.. dropped -from the state r'raijl
r6ad commission. Indeed. -..Wilson: is unkindly, expected to assist
at: his own unhappy official decease. He will" neither be fired nor

of regard for his colleagues he will be given decent burial and will
direct his own funeral." * r*-' /
It is the homage that vice pays to virtue^ When Wilson's : mas
te^draws the line at felony^
says; "I have 500 as-good who have not \u25a0•been'fqiinii?outT^dVwill
never confess. Your offense is rank and smells to heaveo." iThe
language of Wilson's master is ,a i little rude, : ; but he can't help
quoting Shakespeare when his passions ; are Caroused.
The process of keeping a- straight face \u25a0on the government ; of
California entails certain hardships. Uneasy lies the head that
wears a crown. Mr. Herrin .never knows which of his rascals ; will
break loose -next. Schmitz and Ruef .and Wilson have' spoiled on
his hands and saltpeter : won't save them. So it- is 'Wilson to (the
ash barrel . This is what is called "a measure of reform*'— about
half an inch. \ *.;.*/"
It cannot; be successfully maintained that Boxton is not a
logical successor to the red automobile.
"Everybody knows," .shrieks i: Mayor Schmitz/ "that I have
been railroaded." Just so— street railroaded.
; Schmitz has resumed his violin' practice, and his rendition : of
"Mr. Johnson, Turn Me Loose,"' is said to be characterized by
great feeling. \u25a0
Brother Herrin' may have retreated in the first skirmish, of trie
campaign, but it : is a case , of "walk right^ out and turn around and
walk right in again." .!«> -•''-,"*!
The Schmitz sentence' was- not spoiled by the ; fact- that it con
tained a parenthetical clause aimed at the methods of one of the
lawyers of last resort.

THE INSIDER
Tells of democratic tendencies' of Mrs.'Peter
Martin and of .relief committee's, dec™
to spare the feelings of aristocratic sutterers
„, ._/,'„ D t rn HE society scribes \u25a0 treat the expected
Trundles Her Baby^ j visitof Mrs . Peter Martin to her mother
on Newport Walk i- i n law, Mrs. Eleanor Martin, with the
extreme' •attention T accorded =to royalty abroad. Her progress across the con
tinent will, doubtless be recorded in" allita details, and her. re-entree to the
city which she formerly graced with her presence will be heralded by a brass
band and appropriate ceremonies. I wonder how all thl3 sort of thing strikes
the young, matron herself, and what she really thinks of those who subject
her; to this sort of thing. Any one to read some of the stuff written about
Peter Martin's wife would /imagine her to be some great personage who con
\-eyed a tremendous honor upon our little city by occasionally spending a few'
days in It. As a matter of fact, Mrs. -Martin makes no pretensions to being
other than a New. York girlof the "inner circle," who married Peter Martin,
unbillioned as he was, because she loved himr They have -been a happy
couple ever since their marriage, and they bid fair to keep on in the 6ame
Darby and Joan like .unfashionable harmony.-
Mrs Peter has done many things that, though unconventional In her
own set, are common In the middle class, walks of life, where they do not fur
nish food for criticism or paragraphers. For instance, when her baby waa
a few months old she used to wheel It In its perambulator along the board
walk at l Newport, Instead of employing the service of a nurse maid. This
was considered. worthy of comment at the time, showing how Newport society
regards such things.
Whatever the society parirgraphers and the dispatches would have on©
believe/ Mrs:« Peter Martin Is not such a beauty as would win a prize In an
international"^ contest She is tall«Jid carries herself with a certain air, and
her small head has an aristocratic poise, but there are many California
women who do not rank as beauties who would deserve the title as well.
The last time Peter Martin's wife was in this city she set the mode of
dragging the train of a ball gown when dancing, unlike the custom formerly
In vogue here. Before her advent our economical belles and buds used to
grab their trains with their disengaged hand when pirouetting In the mazy
valse or tbe deux temps, and thereby saved their chiffons for another wear
ing. However, after observing the unprovinclal oracle from the east they
let their trains drag also, much to the profit of the cleaning establishments,
the modiste and the dry goods merchants. Thus does trade receive occasional
stimulant by the injection of knowledge.
_\u0084,,„\u25a0 ' ~*C ITr , Some of our aristocratic residents who suf-
Relief Board's Work fered losse3 ln blg flre and wno sunk
to Be Closed Book their pride sufficiently to supplicate aid
from the relief committee have been bewailing ever . since that,' by
reason of the /card system of investigation, their f names must go down In
history side by side with those of less well family treed petitioners.
Now,. let those proud beings take heart of grace. I have inside information,
which I have no reason to believe otherwise than creditable, that all the In
criminating cards, with their pathetic details, are to be destroyed. The names
of .those who accepted a. railway ticket, a bundle of garments, a temporary
habitation, a house and lot, or merely asked for a check for a few hundred
dollars, will all alike be buried in oblivion, and .In a very short time.
.The Inhabitants of the blue book need no longer tremble. The relief com
mittee's investigations and disbursements may live in the memory of the
grateful; perhaps, but the written records will be no more.
nGDre J vs Stlppon remembered lit the distribution of the relief
! a. Gentile School fund. Many of the Mndergartens here are
charities, having no endowment, but depending upon voluntary contributions.
The Adleru kindergarten, which I : recently mentioned : as hTaving been named
after Dr. Felix Adler, is one of these genuine charities. The children are
not charged for tuition, and" society— with ' the large S— has never "taken
them up." Charitable Jewish women are the patronesses. The school is open
to any" and all small children, and though* it is Jewish money that is the
mainstay If not the entire support of the kindergarten at North beach, there is
,not a" single Hebrew child to profit by the'eharity. 1 doubt if any other reli
gious sect , or denomination would long sustain any institution that did not
help in some way to feather its own nest. \u25a0.- v
