HEARST'S ABUSE OF DISTRICT ATTORNEY LANGDON
IS STRONG PROOF OF LANGDON'S WORTH
BY his refusal to betray the people of San Francisco to the
political schemes of Willie Hearst, District Attorney William
H. Langdon has uncorked the vials of the Yellow Kid's wrath.
Until recently, whenever Hearst's local organ, the Exam
iner, had occasion to mention the members of 'the graft prosecu
tion Langdon was invariably given the place of prominence. None
could cavil at that. The district attorney made the graft prosecu
tion possible by his appointment of Hene) r . He gave the fullest
measure of loyal, unceasing and painstaking support to the special
assistant, to whom he had assigned the place of prominence.
Before Hearst discovered that Langdon was a man whom he
could not use "for his own private ends* the district attorney was
lauded as a model public servant, the savior of San Erancisco. Now,
according to the same authority, Langdon is a political trickster,
an official shyster, a. trimming, scheming tale teller. He is accused
by Hearst of deliberate tampering with -the administration of jus
tice. He is charged with violation of his oath of office. He is ridi
culed as a madman, made drunk by unearned t applause. He is
lampooned as the witless beneficiary of the talents of Heney, who,
Hearst says, was chosen at' Hearst's request. Last week 'Langdon
was a leader among ,men; now, accojjfling to Hearst's appraise
ment, he is only a bit of tinsel on the tail of the Spreckels kite. \"
District Attorne}- Langdon refused to play politics with the
unfortunate situation thrust upon him by the'eonviction of Schmitz
and the confessions of Ruef and his boodling understrappers. He
refused to make one of Hearst's messenger boys mayor of San
Francisco. He refused to be Hearst's good dog. He offered the
selection of a mayor to the people. Right there and on that account
the Hearst opinion of Langdon was revised. Hearst's spite against
the man who refused to do his dirty work was exhibited in charac
teristic fashion. The following excerpts from the revised editorial
appreciation of Langdon and his .work by the local Hearst, mouth
piece are fair examples of the depths Hearst can reach:.:
Before Messrs. Spreckels, Heney and Langdon went into
politics the ears of the public were delighted with the sound of
thundering blows dealt in defense of decency. * * * Then
politics came in and then came trimming stories that were not true."
. "The grand jury had been indicting every guilty man it caught •
until politics began, as it always does in May. Instantly came the
change * * * -the grand jury adjourned. \u2666 '*, * Upon'
reassembling it returned some indictments that had already been
voted and then faded away. Not that its work was done; its work.
was stopped."
"There are the Home telephone cases, for instance. The prosecu
tion promised a wealth of indictments in this case, but one, of the
gentlemen connected with the Home telephone company made sweep
ing assertions about the people outside of office who 'held up* the
company, and these sweeping assertions included in their -broad '
boundaries certain influences which could help the prosecution's '
political schemes." \J
\u25a0i\ "Before the zephyrlike fading away of the grand jury one of the .
prosecutors exhibited the indictments already drawn against the fight • ;
trust, but there seems to be some one, since politics came in, who
can promise immunity and' make the prosecution make good the "
promise."
"And all this trimming and scheming and discharging and tale
telling has come into a fine public moment because these men, who
started well, got drunk on applause." ' v
"The Examiner asked Mr. Langdon to appoint Mr. Heney." !
"The manufacturers of hats don't make any above the normal
size, and it would be a distressing sight * * * to see these
gentlemen *\* * automobiling around the city bareheaded." "
If the people of San Francisco needed evidence of the Konesty
and sincerity of District Attorney Langdon's purpose suchTattacks
a§, these would be conclusive^ But the people need no such cvi- 1
dence. Langdon has proved himself a man— a public : vservant in
whom San Fsrfncisco takes a just pride. He has been called -upon
to cope with a situation unparalleled in the history of i American
municipalities. He has done the duty laid upon him in an honest, I
manly fashion. Over' the protest of ! Hearst, Langdon' has V asked!
the whole people to relieve him of an. unsought burden. He has;
asked the people of San Francisco to take their government into!
their own hands. He has shown himself to be* too big, too broad I
to play partisan politics, too much. the man to heed the traitorous!
orders of Hearst. - i
Langdon .has proved by his refusal to be programmed by
Hearst that he is not the man to be swerved from the path of his
duty by villainous abuse and misrepresentation, the people Have*
faith in Langdon. Spiteful calumny, born "'- in nasty political dis
appointment, will but serve to strengthen that faith.
The people, of; San Francisco jare with you,. District Attorney
Langdon, and will support , >;ou in your adherence to the manly;
honest course you have mapped out. - -.Never; mind: -Hearst Abuse'
from him is a certificate of -uprightness^his"-; condemnation is a
badge qi honor! • \u25a0 ' • ••w.'--'

Lately, the Examiner made a; thiniy: disguised; prediction! to the
general. effect: that the appellate justices would-probably "fall. down":
when -it; came to passing on ;the cases of the men indicted for
public crimes. In brief, its assertion is that Justice Kerrigan, owes
his present office to William F.Herrin "arid expects to gojto Herrin
when he \u25a0 dies" ;; that ; he is the son in law of James .IVlcNab, who
avowedly detests. Rudolph 'Spreckels ; that he is the'eiose associate
of G. H. Unibsen, who; spent money freely, to. secure rKe^igan'selec-^
tion; that -Justice; Hall ; ; is the\brother ; injaw of c>f
counsel for Patrick Calhoun ; .that "Presiding justice. Cooper is
related by marriage to W. I. Brobeck and is soon to -be related i
by similar ties to" Downey Harvey, the friend: -and intimate of : j
jSchmitz: These relationships have been made the^basis; ,by the |
i Examiner for a deeply pessimistic view of the prospects of the 1
graft cases-on appeal and of the honesty .-of this court. |
But Cooper, Hall and Kerrigan. are .all. proved men. All, of

"Is an Arctic sock a shoe or a
sock?"
This Is a problem which promise*'
shortly to engage the attention of the
Interstate commerce commission. The
consumer says it Is a shoe while the rail
road companies declare it to be a sock.
John A. Gill of the New York Central is
responsible, for the question arising. It "
seems that Gill secured a carload of
the arctic footwear from its place of
manufacture in Massachusetts and had
it sent out here under the shoe raa-.
Then there was . a merry row. The
western lines refused to accept the car
under the shoe rate and said that this ;
species of foot covering was distinctly !
a sock. Incidentally, a sock takes a
higher rate. Gill has a pair of the cov
erings on exhibition. He thinks that
they should take the shoe rats as there
is no leg to them. The question as well ;
as the exhibit has been referred to
J. W. Spencer, chief inspector of tbe
transcontinental freight bureau In the
city.

"Times have changed," mused C. C.

consisted of General T. H. Goodman,
myself and eight others. I remember
one day A. N. Towne and; General Good
man talking abou^, typewriters, and
Goodman said he would be eternally
dinged if he would have one of those
noisy rattletrap machines in his office
disturbing the slumber of the clerks,
and Towne agreed with him heartily.
A few months after this conversation
Goodman got one of the machines and .
ordered Arthur James to learn to use
it. James is now in charge of the in
formation bureau. Oh my! How he
perspired trying to find the keys. Af
ter six weeks of continuous , study
James got off a letter to Towne. and
Towne fell so much in love witn the
cleanness of the writing that he. too.
ordered a machine and made F. G.
Randall, who is now secretary of Ascot
park In Los. Angeles, learn to use It."
Nagasaki Ship Yards
Are Kept Busy
CONSUL C. B. HARRIS reports th?;t
190S was a prosperous, busy and
very satisfactory year for iiih
Mltsu Bishi dock yard and engine
works at Nagasaki. He adds:
"Workmen to the number of B.D Xi
were employed. Many important addi
tions or extensions were found nect--
sary and made to facilitate the work i-:
filling contracts for the building v!
vessels required by the various Jap
anese .steamship lines. Amonjj the tno:;t
notable Improvements were the bu'lo-
Ingof large turbine shops to manufac
ture marine steam turbines and turbo
generators. ->.
.. "Ships built during the year wer*
six Oviean going 3teamers. with a gross
tonnage of 12,390 tons, indicated horse
power 12.449; four torpedo boat de
stroyers for the Japanese gV«brnment.
and one steel caisson for No. . 1 dock.
The work on hand at the beginning
of 1907 included, two vessels for tha
Japanese government, a torpedo de
stroyer and a dispatch boat. There ar*
also under construction seven ships of
an aggregate tonnage of 64,240 tons for
different steamship companies.
"Tbe attention of American manufac
turers Is called to this ship building
plant, it being by far the largest in
Asia, thoroughly modern and progres
sive, at all times In the market for th«
best material, "latest, improved ma

reason why America should not re
ceive a good portion of the company's
orders, they being placed, even for
American goods, almost entirely In

Demand for Camphor
Is Increasing
SECRETARY JAMES WILSON of

a recent address delivered before

declared that' the United States was
successfully experimenting In the pro
duction! of camphor. He said, in part:
- "For years the department has been \u25a0
distributing camphor tree seed and
thousands of trees are now growing
throughout the south and in the Pacific
coast states. Two years ago a serious
effort was -made to develop the manu
facture, of camphor from .these trees."-
By Improvements in -. manufacturing
processes satisfactory results have been
accomplished and a larg e . manufactur
ing concern is now building up a cam
phor grove of 2.000 < acres in Florida,
from which it hopes to make Its cam
phor. This firm uses more than $500 -
000 worth/ of camphor ; every, year/*
A Japanese newspaper states that tbe
Tokyo government has on foot a* pro
ject for the extensile plantlnjrof for
ests of .uctnphor.tre**. The demand for
camphor increases, having now reached
over 10,500.000 pounds annually.' and
it will not be long until It reaches 13 -
