fTjHESE arc the members of the Glass jury who do not want
I clean government in San Francisco :
X George A. Kohn M. C. Samuels
Hugo Schussell C. P. Fonda
These men gibbet themselves in full view '-of the public as
willing to condone bribery and to extend immunity to the bribe
giver. There was not, of course, in the mind of any reasonable
man, the slightest doubt that Louis tjlass was guilty of bribery. ;
His counsel made some paltry pretense that the chain of evidence
was not complete, but that was only done to furnish some sort
of excuse behind which a man affected with sympathy for bribery
and graft might save his face.'
E. J. Zimmer, auditor of the telephone company, is. the man
who supplied thatvexcuse. If he was not actually concerned : in
the commission of crime he becomes by his own act, accessory after
the fact With a full knowledge of the nature of: his offense he
defies the law and gives aid and comfort to a criminal- Zimmer
is every bit as guilty as Glass and should be prosecuted in the
same manner. . .•.X^JTK-v
It is a most distressing feature of these prosecutions that
men who hold positions of apparent respectability in the com
munity, men of independent means and a certain standing,. should
exhibit themselves in the flight, where Zimmer and these jurors
stand. They do not seem to appreciate their own infamy. They
would not, we presume, , associate themselves with;- a common thief,
but Louis Glass is- no better than suchv and i he is far more .'dan
gerous. • . It is : in this social category that they voluntarily (place
Of course, Glass will be tried again, and. before. a jury of honest
men he will be convicted. Zimmer, who is equally guilty, will
undoubtedly spend a considerable -part of his. time' in- the county
jail under sentence for contempt of court. ''.\u25a0:;
These men who band together to give aid and comfort to
crime may or may not escape the hand, of the law, but one and
all they stand before the community as infamous.
NO better proof can be. adduced of a healthier feeling in mer
cantile circles and also of a return' of a sense of security
than by noting the . action of the retail merchants.. Before
the selection of Dr. Taylor as mayor there Was ' marked reluc
tance on the part of some retail' dealers to even consider/ the pos
sibility of abandoning their present locations for the downtown
district. They put forward the argument that, owing to the unset-;
tied political conditions which affected, all classes of business," it
.would be unwise on their part to make any change. There was,
; however; a radical change in their opinions when Mayor Taylor
was placed in office. Men who had frowned at the idea of moving
down town were the foremost in the ranks of those who desired
to reopen their places of business in the "-'bid district, arid it may
be said with safety that before the expiration of another year the'
old retail. section will be firmly established pretty well on the
same lines as before the fire. Many of the present stores undoubt
edly will be ; ' maintained as branch : establishments. *
It is expected - that in the space of twelve months the large
retail houses which have begun the erection of buildings will have
them completed, and they will naturally attract other stores, -for
it is an accepted fact that ladies, who are really the only shoppers
in a community, only will make purchases in a locality where
the stores . are grouped together. The planning out, then, of- a
retail district is a thing to be considered carefully^ for ;it is 'veritably*
.the heart of a city,. where life and interest centers, and thus becomes
the choicest and the most valuable part of town. How important
is the retail district f may be, judged from the fact that the; sum *o£
$3,000,000, which .was sent here; from theVeast to be invested lay
John H. Speck, carried the stipulation that it was to be, loaned
only to those who intended to build in the retail ;- section of Sari
The future retail district , promises to excel in the point; of
convenience and in the way of modern buildings any' city of the
same size. One example can be quoted/ to prove the : truth Vofl this
assertion. There . is a building which will be ; finished shortly; in
the downtown district to be used as a: piano storey and the
"on the; upper floors will be leased 1 only to^thosel persons connected
with the profession.- Teachers . of music will be given fa vorabie
terms to establish their studios, and the convenience to masters and
pupilscan be readily. appreciated.
This is merely one example. There rare many 'others show
ing that the builders of the future San 7 Francisco: have taken ' into
consideration the necessities^^
.The new San Francisco ; wilf be unlike its older contemporaries, ' for
it will be built under totally' different which
