THE instant activities of Mr. Gavin *McNab are worthy of
note. These operations are not .as obvious as /might be
wished, but they are showing symptoms. Mr. McNab is
the official voice of the democratic party in San Francisco,
but people do say he speaks in whispers.
The Call is quite ready to accord^full credit to Mr. McNab
for a certain and sane public spirit, tempered, perhaps, by a canny
regard for his own pocket, Mr. McNab will never go broke
on patriotism. ',
Let it be understood at once that this is no "attack," Mr,
McXab, like Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Harriman, is a "practical
man," and, as such we recognize his limitations. In plain 'sailing
times we are not disposed to make mountains out o! the Httle
dinky bargains and huckstering that obtain in politics. These have
been Mr. McNab's stock in trade. We are free to say that' he
has fulfilled his high function 'with fair regard for the. rights
For the present the -story runs — we know not with how much
Pth— that Mr. McNab purposes . t<? avenge the defeat of Mr.
eodore Bell last year by serving up the head of District Attor
ney Langdon on a platter. It is even stated that Mr. Bell is to
be brought here from the country to tell the people of San Fran
cisco whom they should elect to. head the municipal department
Df justice. It is a tale difficult of belief, but it persists and is
heard and sworn to on the street corners where politicians con
gregate.
Whatever may be Mr. McNab's intentions, whatever the pro
gram, The Call imust for fhe present refuse to believe that Mr.
Bell contemplates any such intrusion. We shall not believe -it
short of feeing Mr. Bell actually in the field as a missionary^ of
3rivate vengeance at the expense of San Francisco.
Keep out.
We hope that Mr. McNab has no such purpose. The naked
statement-of the situation should be sufficient to convince, him that
it could only result in injury to San Francisco, with incidental
-serious damage to himself. There may be a time in politics to
ivork out private revenges, but it is not now in San Francisco.
Forget it"
There may be a time in politics when party, regularity is of
supreme importance, but assuredly that time is not now in San
Francisco. It[ may be true or it may not be true that Mr. Lang
don's candidacy for governor last year caused Mr. Bell's defeat,
but, for the sake 'of argument, if we assume the affirmative, then
Mr. Bell and Mr?.McNab should lay the blame where it belongs—
on Hearst, not Langdan.
k Consider the lilies, how they grow. Let us imagine, if we
can, a picture of Bell and Hears? vi full alliance persecuting Lang
don. That is the situation as it presents itself. Talk 4 about
strange bedfellows!
Day by day we see Hearst blackguarding Langdon, because
the district attorney would not appoint some servant of Hearst
to be mayor of San Francisco. He' is resolved to rule or ruin,
Yet, the government of this afflicted city shall not be made the
football of personal revenge. There's a reason.
"It is always fair weather when good fellows get together."
Join us, Mr. McNab. Think of what it/ would mean, the round
world over, should San Francisco, laying all party politics and
selfish ambitions on' one side, unite on a single program for the
common good. Let it be proclaimed that in the hour of trial San
Francisco stood one and indivisible. .That's all.
INNOCENTS ABROAD
, /FT! HE presumption of innocence" that lawyers cherish and
| nurse is for the moment doing some hard labor for the
J_ layman. Schmitz calls on the Native Sons of the Golden
West to witness that he is v innocent until the last crack
of doom from the final court pronounces him . guilty. Ruef,
although he has .pleaded guilty, still protests his 4nnocence. Dinan
is as white as snow untiFa jury shall find him a speckled beauty
and the supreme court-confirms the judgment. The unspeakable
police commissioners insist that only they had the right to^.try
Dinan, and in the absence of such trial the late police chief must
be deemed innocent. In a word, there are no guilty men outside
of the penitentiary .\ Dinan, Ruef, Schmitz, the whole procession
of grafters, are innocents, because they are abroad-
Of course, the presumption of innocence i§ a purely legal
device of very doubtful value. It does not obtain for a moment
outside of the courts, and it is altogether artificial. As fa matter
of fact, the real presumption is all- the s other' way. -The propor
tion of cases in which innocent «men are .indicted is*,not- one in a
thousand. The legal presumption survives only because we prefer
that a hundred guilty men should escape rather than that one who; is
innocent should suffer the brand of felony. But in the social and
business life of a community the plea has no validity whatever.
THE INTERNATIONAL POLICEMEN'S PLIGHT
f-ri HE international policeman, who so gayly takes up the work
[ of "minding his neighbors' business, is not., especially.- pros
j^ porous in his newest undertaking to argue Fuzzy Wuzzy^ into
a % better frame of mind. Unfortunately, the one argument
sufficiently, convincing for the untamed son of the desert; conies
from the mouth of a machine gun, and I even '\ that seems ; to fail of
& satisfying: efficacy. France and : Spain, haying undertaken with a

light heart to- discipline the disobedient and unterrined Moor,. with
incidental pickings for themselves; find the job bigger than they
imagined.. ....."
There is, to-be sure, a certain simplicity and forthright logic,
characteristic of the French:- people, about the: proceedings, which
are conducted under 4he 'rule,;? "Whenever; you -see an Arab shoot
him "It is a warfare conducted on generalprinciples. -It is learned,
for instance, from the -dispatches, 1 that "whenever the men on the
cruiser Glory sight groups of Arabs they open on them, with shell
fire/' presumably in generous ;. accord .- .with' the principle, that
Voltaire attributed ;to the -when they; shot "Admiral Byhgf-
"to encourage the others." ; •\u25a0'-".\u25a0 \u25a0'-. •;/.
All this -'hurts business." The shop keepers are. barricading
their windows in Fez in expectation of. a revolution, and, although
we are assured that "later calm was restored, 1 ' one ; may fear that
the situation is of the kind that makes capital hunt the nearest' hole.
Brother Hafiz appears on-.the 'horizon with a new Moorish
army— more meat for the machine gmns. ~ General Brude, com
manding the army of pacification, fears that harsh measures may
be required.. The only peaceable Moor is' the dead Moor.- >k <
It is sufficiently clear, therefore, that when constabulary duty is
to be done in Africa the lot of the international policeman is not. a
happy one. He is^ for the present a dilapidated and bedraggled
peace officer. He has lost his helmet and fears hisi club will be
taken away from him. Keeping the peace pi Morocco is. a
hard game. . ' .
It must always be borne in mind "that under The Hague rules
this Morocco affair is not war. Call it anything else you please-f-a
punitive expedition, : a-delimitatign of ; boundaries ;; or an adjustment
pi international relations, but : war—^never. France and Spain have
invited themselves to a free fight in the interest of peace, 'and
they are not quite sure that they like the job. Indeed, . it -seems
as if the police might yet be compelfed to call out the militia.

and Hymen have put an end to that Bugge3tion,B ugge3tion, "What are we going to do.
This is" "the absorbing question, the same query that troubled everybody in the
inner.'drcle when Mrs. "Monroe Salisbury pasaed away. Mra.SaUsbury was
the leader par excellence, and it seemed as if no one could be found to mi
her place successfully as. an organizer of danctng clubs and launcher of
debutantes. Then came Mrs. Ynez'Shorb- White, a younger woman than Mrs.
Salisbury, but gifted with just the right qualities for social leadership. There
is no. doubt that Mrs. White's marria S e>nd departure fox the Philippines next
spring means a gad gap in her particular sphere.
If an unmarried woman, young, rich and gracious, were to be choaen to
be the dictatress of 'our society. I should suggest Miss MayeColburn. who ha 3
the genuine gift of generalship. But it has been hinted to me by a cumber
of those claiming t6 be "on the Inside" that Mrs. Thomas Benton Darragfc will
be Mrs; White's successor. She Is dowered with brains. executlTe ability.
blue blood and social position, and Is physically and intellectually able to cop«
with such an office as czarina of San Francisco's smart set.
Colonel Baker Fell
at Balls Bluff
carefully filled his pipe "and pressed' the tobacco down with a saffron hued
nnger tip, "I see the author says that Baker was killed at Stone river. Now,
Stone river is in Tennessee, and, as I remember the affair, the colonel was
killed at Balls bluff,- which is on the -Virginia side of the Potomac^ Jt is oaly
a slight error, but just as well have it right. Baker, by the way. had
just received hi 3 commission of major geaeral on the morning he was Wiled.
The blood stained paper was found in his cap.
\ "He was at the head of the California battalion, recruited In the east of
men who had been in California/ As Balls bluff was fought in 1361 and Store
river in 1863 the colonel had been dead more than a year wh^n the latter
battle occurred. • Since we claim Baker .out here, I think we like to know
everything about him that any one can remember, don't you? Did you ever
hear that story about Baker, how during the battle ha told his men to lie
down after their volley 3. They objected, because he wouldn't lie down him
self,'-' When you are a United States senator,' he answered, 'you won't lie
down, either.'-"
