PERMANENT governmental rehabilitation of San Francisco
depends 3argeh% if not wholly, upon the manner in which
the republican voters of this city do their duty at the primary
election on August 13. . *
The republican issue is sharply drawn. Herrin and the graft
ers are on one side; the people and decent government are on- the
other. The decent, law abiding republicans of San Francisco are
wholly responsible for the infamous control Herriri exercises over
the party organization. That control is exercised through a "push"
that comprises only an insignificant fraction of the party strength.
The supineness of honest republicans furnishes the. only excuse
for the political existence of the Crimminses and the Kellys. By
their indifference and neglect the friends of good government have
permitted these corporate tools to control their conventions and
drive the republican party out of power. Continued indifference
will permit them to name a controlling number of delegates to
the ensuing local convention. They stand ready and anxious to
plunge San Francisco still deeper in the quagmire of municipal
disgrace at the command of their overlord. They are busy select
ing delegate tickets in every assembly district in San Francisco.
Unless the decent men of San Francisco awake to their responsi
bility Herrin's tools will carry the primary elections. The elec
tion of the delegates selected by these creatures of the big boss
will insure the nomination of candidates Whose necks are toughened
to the Herrin yoke. V^\ V
The honest republicans of San Francisco can, if they choose,
wrest the control of their party from Herrin and his'understrap
pers. They can, if they choose, send men to the convention who
never have worn and never will wear the Herrin collar. A con
vention of free men may berelied upon to name a ticket composed
of free men — a ticket that will command the, respect and the sup
port of a conclusive plurality of the voters of this city.
Herrin's abandonment of his infamous burned district appor
tionment scheme was acknowledgment of his fear of an aroused
people. He retreated before a cloud which he feared would break
in a storm of honest ballots at the primary polls. Herrin and his
tools hoped by this surrender to appease the rank and file of the
party and forestall anything like a popular vote on August 13.
They believed that as a result of their capitulation thousands of
republicans would neglect registration and be deprived of the right
to vote at the primary election*.
, The registrar's records show that this belief was not ground
less. Thousands of republican; voters are yet unregistered. Their
failure to register before the primary books are closed on July 24
will be voluntary submission to Herrin and his "push." It is "the
duty of every republican who believes in honest government to
register. Delay is dangerous-r-REG^STER TODAY. V
IT would be reassuring to ;the people of these United States" if
that distinguished military authority and strategist, General
M. H. dc Young, could' contrive to agree with , himseff. InVSari
Francisco he is of one mind about 'war Avith Japan, but in Paris]
where he is much beloved and '.'reyeri i believed, his opinions are
radically different. As he expects the- people of San; Francisco
to pay 75 cents a month for his 6pini<bns> it'would be^simple jus
tice to the common people to let us^lctidw. which.^is the ''real dope."
If one may follow aivl- be fguided; by jGjeneralde Young's
declared opinions in Paris he has beeni'giving:; us -the wrong: steer
in San Francisco. For the enlightenmentfof 1 California he declares
at home and asseverates with allthe solemnity that dtstiriguishes
him from a vaudeville artist; that "it is only tlie scatterbrains' in
Japan who talk war, and in Ithis^ r country^jtjis^ ithie.) feeble;;irnin'ded
who dread a conflict." Whereas/ in "Paris';^' as a" gay sbut5 but much
alarmed boulevardier, he- tells* the world: "I say the Japanese
are seeking a cause to be irritated. They are -planning an excuse
for futqre action." Agairi^lie utters this i 'Parisian warning : "It
is well known in California tha| : thousands of -i Japanese j soldiers}
men and officers of the late i war, are now ; in ; ! : Working
on the sugar plantations-aressome 10,000 or i.5 f (W; a 'nVcjcusTfarge I

Why General de Youngs should seek to. conceal these terrifying
facts from the defenseless;;. people of ? California v ;is not explained.
Indeed, he tells us in San Francisco' that "the journals /: in- this',
country and in Japan whose; editors have startling^ war
rumors will continue to make mountains'but of molehills and tor
ture every trifling circumstance into evidence of imminent trouble.''

THE case of jjudge Hebbard' is melancholy for himself and his
friends and unfortunate for the state. Quite obviously* Judge
Hebbard'is at .times not responsible for his acts.. He has
fallen under evil; influences; and being invested with important
judicial powers he is a danger to the commonwealth: There is
no knowing what . mischief an irresponsible official may not' do at
the prompting of sinister influences. The presiding judge may
refuse to assign him '-business,; but that does not take from him
the power ;to issue writs designed > to promote ] an evil purpose.
It is' not the intention here to attribute- any suchT\rnalignant
purpose to Judge Hebbard, . but merely to point out that he is sub
ject to evil control on occasion : and is, therefore, dangerous. He
gets drunk and, morally speaking, wallows in the gutter among
thieves and grafters.- v^ ;;; - - ;
..There apes not, appear to;bc any known remedy/for this condi
tion within the four corners rof the; law',; exceptjjmpcachmcnt; at a
special session,; of;;the legislature,- a process practically prohibited
by the expense. Hebbard cannot beshut up in ; a' madhouse, because
it is not as bad -as that. He caiinot be lockVd up as a vagrant,
because he has visible i means ; of • subsistence. He is even at liberty
to be impudent to the ; bar -association.
There should be .some . direct and . practicable constitutional
means for the "removal of offending judges at all times. It is \u25a0all
.wrong - that a . community must suffer from such imposition liar.

ing her during her coast visit It Is as I predicted a few weeks. ago. Mrs.
Nicholas Longyorth may prefer to forego the "pleasure" of -formal funcUons
given in her honor by people she doesn't know. And why blame her for pre
ferring to vi^it hir relatives, ! the Hammonds, in the quiet country .borne, to

spins 'when she can have a better time with. only her own "Nick" as com
panion? But , l don't wonder that the president's daughter has that;, tired
feeling when she reads the things written about her society appearances. At
one affair given by^herself at.her. Washington home there occurred aa incident
which may Illustrate the 'sort of thing that this young American matron
has to endure sometimes. Her mother in iaw wa3 serving tea and asked one
of the callers at the "at home" to sit down and have a cozy, chat with her over
a cup of hyson. ;The caller, turning to address another woman, had her. elbow
jostled, and down on her best gown splashed thejjeverage. Princess "Allct|
was the Jostler and she felt rather bad about her awkwardness, as any woman
would. . In Washington they are not so regardless of their best frocks as they
are in rich New. York, so the' hostess suggested that a sponge and hot water
would help, the stain. But go, indeed, the lady repelled the very idea "of cleai-
Ing that front breadth., .
> "I shall preserve the gown forever," she aaid. "I am from Wisconsin,
and when I go back home I shall show that stain to everybody, for it was my
'president's daughterwho spilled the tea.". ,
