BANKS SEEKING MARKET STREET
ONE of the greatest factors in the re-establishment of the re
tail district is the decision of several of the banks to locate on
Market street This is regarded as highly, important from
more standpoints than one. In the first place it strengthens
the status of that thoroughfare and inspires greater confidence
among the retailers, for they will, naturally argue that where the
bankers decide to establish a new banking district it would be .wise
to be in the neighborhood. It was demonstrated before the fire
. that banks were a necessity in the retail district, and those who
started them had no reason to repent the step. The advantages to
both banks and stores- were rapidly shown. The banks gained de
positors and the stores customers. People who had been compelled
to go downtown to their banks found it far more convenient to
have them near at hand and so patronized the new establishments
quickly and liberally.
The bankers who will locate on Market street will not only
increase their own business, but will attract around their institu
tions mercantile firms and will' go far toward extending the area
of the retail district. The institutions that -have elected to % build
permanent homes on Market street have taken the choicest corners,
and as all first class stores seek corners for the better display of
their goods they will be compelled to take up their quarters on
adjacent streets.
If the banks had been able to move- to Market street before
the fire they would have done so gladly, but the impossibility of get
ting suitable locations kept them in their quarters. How quickly the
bankers availed themselves of the calamity born opportunity of
going to Market street may be judged from the list' of banks that
have determined to build on that thoroughfare. When the Hibernia
bank moved out to Market and Jones streets there were not wanting
prophets of evil to say it was a bad move, holding to the opinion
that all the banks should be in the same district or close together.
It was regarded almost in the nature of a crime to move out of
the so called financial area. This so called area will, however, not
be changed by the action of the savings banks in adopting Market
street as their home. There will be no change in the commercial
banks, with the exception of the Union Trust, *which will move to
its new location on Market and Grant avenue when its building is
erected. Y^f/..
The list of the banks that will be housed on Market, from
Montgomery to Powell, is an imposing one and speaks, well for
the importance of the city. The Metropolis -will be on the site of
the old Grand hotel; the Crocker bank will be opposite, and so
will the Union Trust till its new home is built. Farther up Market
street and on the same side as the -Crocker, bank is the Mutual, and
across the street in the Claus Spreckels building is the National
Bank of the Pacific. A' few feet west is the gigantic structure of
the Humboldt bank. Where O'Farrell runs into Market will be
the San Francisco savings union, 'and on Market and Grant the
Union Trust. In the new building going up at Market and Ellis it
is said the Western national, will be installed.
When all these banks are permanently located there will be
few cities with as fine a showing, for we shall have two distinct
banking centers — the commercial banks in the heart of the finan
cial district and the savings banks where retail stores cluster.
IMPORTANT CHANGES IN ASSESSMENT OF RAILROAD
THE unanimity with which the big railroad companies are
making a poor mouth before the state board of equalizatior
does them no credit. The devices are so transpar
ent and so widely at variance With the known financial facts as
to suggest and even enforce the theory that Mr. Black Ryan and the
other railroad tax agents are persuaded that they are playing With
children. The showing of poverty lacks even the merit of in
genuity. .
The overland roads terminating in California are paying com
fortable dividends. Never in their history were the Southern Pa
cific and the Santa Fe so prosperous, ftjr. Hairiman has announced
an increase of the Southern Pacific dividend. to 6 per cent. Lasi
; year the property paid 5 per cent. The most profitable part of the
two overland systems lies in California. It is here they make the
money that enables them to pay big dividends and have a com
fortable surplus left besides. / '
It is quite true that both systems have some unprofitable
divisions. The South Pacific coast (narrow gauge) has never paid
interest on the price that Huntington paid for it. That is not th<
fault of the road, but is due to the fact that Huntington paid ar
enormously inflated price in order to shut off competition. The
deficit so created is purely artificial. In the same way the North
Shore road was bought by Harriman with the sanie purpose ol
shutting out competition. It may be said in passing that both
of these purchases constitute criminal offenses and the deficits
are only a monument to greed.
.The assiduity of the roads in minimizing their profits on this
side of the continent while; they contradict themselves; in. Wall
street is due to the fact that the state board has agreed on a/new
basis of assessment^ -The: board ..has adopted the plan; recommended
by the state revenue commission of assessing the property of /rail
road corporations in proportion to the, gross earnings, and tHe
suggested rate of 4 per cent on such earnings will be,/ according ; to
present advices, the measure of assessment. -That; wHI result in- an
EDITORIAL PAGE
increase of some $33,000,000 in round figures, being 40 per cent
more than last year's assessment "of the railroads.' It is gratifying
to learn that the board will in all probability increase the Pullman
company's assessment by a round million dollars. .
There was some difference of opinion i between Controller Nye
and the chairman of the board, Mr. Alexander Brown, but it con
cerned matters of detail and methods rather than principle. Mr.
Nye wanted the gross earnings- for the,; last fiscal year used las'.- the.
basis eft assessment. Mr. Brown • preferred to follow the settled
practice of the board and use the figures of the' previous year. In
support of this view it is contended that the exact figures v for the
fiscal year ending : June 30 last are not yet obtainable in official
form. • This is probably true in the narrow official sense, but the
figures have, in fact, been given out for financial consumption.- But
after all this is merely a question of detail on which there may be
an honest ' difference of opinion. ' The gross earnings for the last
fiscal year will come, up next summer as the basis of assessment
and showing an increase will result in another important addition
to the assessment. The main thing, isthe establishment of a scien
tific and automatic basis of assessment in substitute for the old
plan of guesswork and dirty politics. -"3'

THE judgment of Judge Landis in Chicago imposing an mv
pressive fine of many millions on the Standard oil company
represents and expresses the accumulated popular indigna-,
tion of a quarter century in terms of dollars. The Standard
oil people and their led captains and horn blowers were wont to
say : "Why, all these things have been known for years. We have
been taking rebates and crushing competition all over the country
for 30 years. The evidence is available in the inquiries of legis
lative and other public commissions. If these practices were
criminal, why were prosecutions not instituted?"
. These facts and the. question that went\ with them were not
easily answered. It seemed as if the hand of j ustice were paralyzed.
The books »were full of prohibitive and criminal covering
the case, but the department of justice was silent: In the words of
Philander Knox, then at the head of the department, they were
not "running, amuck."
Now, /whether the policy of enforcing the law shall be stig
matized as "running amuck" or not, it is certain that it remained
for Theodore Roosevelt to overcome the tremendous force ;of offi-l
cial inertia. No man who has not come in contact with, officialism
understands the, (lead weight of bureaucracy or realizes the heroic
efforts required to get anything done where it is outside the(ruti
In. addition to the customary force of official inertia there are in
cases like the present secret political influences that hamper or
sidetrack! action. :> V \u25a0

The same (cohesive "force of public plunder; exists in every
state. In New York Senator. Chauncey M. Depew is the aged and

Italian Grand Opera Season
Will Begin in September
By James Crawford
I y^>j OLLAMARINI. whose singing and
I acting of Carmen several years agj
I* at the Tlvoll were town talk, will be
a .principal of the reorganized
Lambardi Italian opera company, whicn
will open a season here, either in the
Central theater qr at the Chutes, Sep
tember 25.
This Interesting information comes
from two reliable sources. Signor
Patrizl. the Italian Journalist of San
Francisco, who accompanied the Im
presario to Milan, has written It to
Manager Will Greenbaum. and Signor
Nocerlno, American representative of
Lambardi, has applied to the Central
theater management for the use of that
playhouse.
Whether he obtains It depends upon
the terms he offers. If he makes jt
advantageous to Howell to Interrupt
the season of melodrama we shall have
grand opera at the Central. If not.
then we shall have it at the Chutes.
• • •
• In addition to Collamarinl, the new
company includes Slgnora Adellna Pa
dovani. a lyric* soprano who is said so
be even more sensational than Tetraz
zini; Signorina Bertozzl, one of the
gi*eat dramatic sopranos of Italy; Cava
lier Slgnorlni. a dramatic tenor from
La Scala, and two barytones who are
noted in Italy both for singing and
acting. The only member "of the for
mer company retained, is Ollnto Lom
bardl, the basso. An orchestra of 35
and a chorus of 40 singers are prom
ised.
•»••/ • . •
Let us hope that the Collamarinl has
retained the full measure of vocal and
dramatic force and relinquished some
of the superfluous flesh that were hers
when last she appeared here. During
her first Tlvoli season she charmed the
visual as well as the aural sense, but
ere she finished her return engagement
we were shocked to see her Carmen
gradually acquire a waddling gait. If
some of her all too solid adipose hail
melted' 'neath Italy's sunny influence
we may be tempted again to pronounce
her Carmen the greatest ever, not for
getting that of Calve.
As no mention has been made of
Lambardi having booked Tetrazzini, it
may be accepted that she will not be in
his aviary this season. But that is
not saying. positively we shall not hear
the capricious cantatrlce in the near
future.
Before he went abroad W. H. Leahy
hinted that his mission was to organize
and return with an Italian opera com
pany headed by Tetrazzini. and until
he la definitely heard from concerning
her intentions, It would be foolish to
abandon hope of again enjoying the
spell cast by her wonderful voice. If
