ON August 3— a date made otherwise memorable ; by :; the
heathen Chinee— Judge tandis ''of Chicago vvill impose fines
on John D. Rockefeller'ahd'hisJ^a'ssociates. 'The surniise; runs
that the court will go the -iimit and; impose fines amouhtingf
to $29,240,000. Other against the oil company are
expected to end in convictions that" will entail fines exceeding
5i00.000,000. Y'-*y -}~ : \u25a0 .; ; ?.v; i < - 1 " ;| ; \u25a0•
These staggering sums^might appall Mr. Rockefeller were he
as ignorant of Standard oil affairs and resources as he professed
when on the witness stand recently. On that odefasion he con
trived to convey the impressidff that his business education had
been sadly neglected. He did. not quite declare himself a mere
butterfly of fashion, but he wished the . court to understand that
he did nothing to earn his salary of $100,000 a year. He hadnot
been in the office of his emplo3'er for eight years. He did not
\u25a0know the capitalization of the Standard, oil company, but ,he
guessed it might be $100,000,000. Indeed, he was quite uncertain
about the nature of the business carried on by the company.
Thus we find a« man who grows rich beyond the dreams: of
avarice while engaged in no more profitable labors than playing
r^olf and eating breakfast foods. One wishes that Judge Landis
had asked' him whether he indulges the fatal, habit of drinking
coffee. He would be likely to, know something about that, although
he was quite ignorant whether the Standard oil company had one
refinery or more. < x
For Mr.. Rockefeller's information we may say that he need
not feel alarmed about V $29,000,000 fine. In : the . tvverity-five years
that have elapsed since the:Standardoil company of. New; Jersey'
was organized the corporation'; has paid' more than $700,000,000 in
dividends. Mr. Rockefeller's alarm may be allayed.'- It is' the
people who buy coal oil who should be frightened. Let us pray
mat Judge Landis will make, .the fine as light as his conscience
will permit. The consumers of oil are, recommended to the mercy
of the court : V>^ /•*-.::;-,.' * .-' :
THE formula of eternal youth has been discovered for -this
latitude and proves much easier .of solution, than the binomial
theorem or the rule. in /Shelley's case. We do not mean, the
explanation of that celebrated rule supplied by a recent can
didate for admission to the; California bar. t "The rule in Shelley's
case," he explained to the 'court of appeal, "is the same as in- any
other man's case, because the law is no respecter of persons." He
was admitted. ,
This triumphant demonstration \was equaled if not paralleled
in Judge Graham's court ; by a,.young' .person f who testified "that
her age remained stationary, at. t ?22rf ( because A of^the; .commercial
requirements of her position. ' Being employed to wait -at table
at an eating house, she Has discovered that the heartless and mer
cenary proprietors will not hire^y^oung woman who admits more
than 22 summers. She bids ' defiance to FatHer Time, who is a
disagreeable old -party, an>^"ay, > at|22. ». TKus .the .neat

They tell us that Jove laughs at' lovers* perjuries, and as the
god of thunder isa person ofatnotoriqusly^loose way : o'filife/h~e is
quite likely, to bring up in r ithc|<Kyorcc ? TO
his unhallowed amusement !to ; the* 'mythology : of that accommo
dating tribunal where woman's '.woes '.are assuaged with alimony
and only man is vile. Judge Graham himself has the brow of
Jove and resembles him - closely;^ except \u25a0in point of morals. Being
a man of sensibility, as welPas a model -to his sex, he 'decides
that a woman's^ age: is not evidence.' salute the court and
admire his legal agility.
A CONTROVERSY in progress in New York ' relative; to the |
use of salt water for extinguishing : fires has sorne^ bearing I
on the very similar^propositiont that has been advanced -for!
San Francisco. New^Yqrk*; City/rhas rpa^jr.^nstilled/aVhigli!
pressure distributing system for thY extinguishment of,- fifes; and '
now the question . arises whetheV; salt or. fresh water shall ; be i used; j
and, further, whether ;the plant can be made -available for flushing
and cleaning streets. The- chief engineer of- Manhattan, Mr." dc ;
Varona, who is in charge i of ;the: work, is ' decidedlyi opposed .to '
the use of salt water; He declares^ that;it\ would; injure the pipes |
and machinery arid leave slime and" other destructive impurities i
on the streets. Some of the objections to the use of salt water are
thus [stated: ' / >,
The adds" which necessarily must permeate ; watery drawn v from the - har- !
bor will- be .most Injurious to parement I dare say that ; they ".wiil, 'eat- vp '
and destroy asphalt as ; the salt mixed Ice used ' by ; Ice : cream manufacturers
does; In fact, the flushing of streets with "salt water) has ' been tried I abroad l
.In Europe, and It has proved a^fallure. iThere^is'*atcleanslng property" in j
fresh 'water, which -is t not .possessed >by any f other: " I- should say, also " that !
the hoofs of horses would be Injured by.thosVsame acids. -You cannot begin!
<10. account for, the harm> they would do. * It'could v be v taken- for ; granted > that !
they would give off; germs of the* most' deadly, and WulentdescrlpUon
Another objection iwhlch , suggests j Itself •Is J that] the floo^ -of :water ''driven !
at high pressure, .would sweep;all the'dust,'dlrt^ard rubbish' in its path r into
'the sewers and most certainly choked them 'badly. * ' / \u25a0 ;;':; ;': j
Some/of these objections l do: no^ apply m - San {Francisco. ; ' It
would not be necessary here to take the impure^ water ofltheharljor.
The Pacific ocean is our natural source of supply. No doubt the |
salt , and other chemicals in sea water would havef certain \u25a0injurious i
effects. . " _ " .;\u25a0'-\u25a0 \u25a0 •-- \r '-\u25a0.'-;:-; ;:\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0:\u25a0';:

j ; There is stilla third; objection to* the use of any high -pressure !
system : for. washing "streets, and it is that a -:\u25a0 powerful- stream of |
water; directed ? from a > nozzle^; would-be : dangerous in. tl^ hands!
of an unskilled or .careless ;street r laborer.' A' column of water

this year's : immigration into California
will.be greater than In any former year.
Our. New York office is deluged with in
quiries from; all classes. The most en
couraging sign of this immigration Is
that^the : weir to . do ' farmers _ of New

soll^ that they rarely left .the farm, are
talking of selling their places and buy
ing -land , in California. The literature
that has been distributed In the East is
of i the 5 best " kind/ : f or :It enables the
farmer to act some idea of conditions
