THE totals shown -by the books of the registrar of voters are
full of promise for the political rehabilitation of San Francisco.
Approximately 60.000 electors out of a total^ registration" of less
. than 61,000 are qualified to. participate in the primary elections
on August 13. 1. ,
The total primary, registration shows an increase of 10,000
over the whole registration for 1906. The fact that this large num
ber of new voters, together with more than 3,000 who have changed
their residence since voting in 1906, enrolled themselves for partici
pation in the primaries is a healthful sign. It is indicative of an
awakened public conscience^an Jntierest in the- primary, the; foun-*
dation of good government, 'jri.;:* '" i**^;. 1 . ...Iv
If the promises held out Sy the large- registration 1 are realized
even in part Boss Herrin and his. understrappers will be eliminated
from the politics of San Frarrcisco. Ajlatrge,,primary poll means an
honest, independent vote. It means a vote against /which no corrupt
political organization can^ hope/to pre\a.il. The political boss is the
creature of popular indifference. Herrin's abandonment. of his cor
rupt apportionment scheme inconclusive proof that' tliik arch enemy :
did not dare beard an aroused public openly. The vote which Herrin
feared .to -arouse, cannot evade responsibility for the governmental
reHabilitation of^stricken .San -Francisco. The republican party must'
accept the duty laid upon it;; j That thousands 'of republicans' are
willing to* assume that duty" ifT^yiclenced by* th"c* facl~tKat fully half'
of the 13,000 _ -voters 'registeredf* since^ April 23 for the primaries are J
rTepublicans.-^heyrtintend to "go to the primary polls. It is 'the duty^j
of ever\ r other horiestvrepublican to go with them. -The; friend of
good government will find a *decerit ticket for'his*suppbrt;in each.)
assembly district. There will^also ibe, Relegate' tickets v composed'of!|
men pledged, if secretly, to redeliver their party to Herrin.' They !
cannot make good their pledge save through the traitorous indiffer-j
ence of the men who are always willing to resent criticism of their
citizenship, but. usually unwilling ,tfc> prove their .civic virtue at" the
primary polls. : ; . . jj : ! cf- ; * \u25a0, : ;_ .
"Republicans, the fate of San ' Francisco is in your hands. In the
manner of your performance of ,you,r duty on August 13 lies the test
of your citizenship, your loy4lty/ta } r our city and ybur party. "

.^ V«£ red a^ "Bj t 7;'«fV**i currence a few days ago which casts

\u25a0 The Incldent'arose tnj connection vwith the extradition; of a man arrested
in this cltyon Information from Detroit, where, he was wanted on a charge of
securing; money ; .; under, .false -pretenses. The Detroit police department was
notified of thejman'§? arrest, ; and Emery /E.'. Brooks, an official of that city,
was sent; to" San {Francisco after him.' The warrant was issued by Governor
Gillett,. and the necessary preparations made i to transfer the custody of the
prisoner. 4 In the ' meantime, \u25a0 however, a petition for a .writ of habeas corpus
had been filed ln^the : prisoner's behalf, and It was necessary -to have this
dismissed before he .could be given into the charge of Brooks. Brooks w^v
in a" hurry to be on;his way, and Harrison was of material assistance to him
in hurrying j the case along and securing the „ dismissal of the habeas corpus
proceedings; vwlthout loss of time.' After the matter had been attended .'to.
Brooks \ called Harrison Into a quiet corner. . "^
"Now, what do : _I owe you T' he asked In the resigned manner of one per
forming a painful but necessary, duty. < -~ •
"Why, -you don't owe me anything," responded Harrison! "That's what
we : are paid for."
. : .. Brooks , didn't respond with words. He simply looked at -Harrison with
surprise on every feature, and whistled softly 1 between his _' teeth.'"
"I think he regarded me as the biggest curiosity he had * struck In San
Francisco," explained Harrison afterward: "His manner said Just as plainly
as words that he had expected and was prepared to "pass a bit*. to every!offi
cial the came in contact with here. I'm wondering now whether, my ' share
was accounted for in Brooks* expense Report, or whether- somebody else- got
a double share on account of my refusal." . ..

many years by his father, the late Henry K. Field. It is a responsible position
for. so : young a man, Pacific coast manager of the company, but young Field
was "virtually^ the manager for more "than a year past, his father being too

it - seems, that Charlie Field . graduated from > college in the same class with
