DR. DE YOUNG'S DIAGNOSIS
TAKING his case in Paris, Mr. M. H. de Young continues to
send comfortable installments of sage counsel for stay at
home Americans. In the intervals of his elegant leisure as
a gay boulevardier he loads up on good advice which costs
him nothing. He never forgets his country when he has anything
to give away because it is not worth keeping.
For the present Mr. de Young is engaged in explaining the
kinks and eccentricities of the money market. He has the honor
to disagree with M. Leroy Beaulieu, the eminent economist, and
with Lord Rothschild. It may be, indeed, that he never heard of
these authorities, so gayly/ does he explain the troubles of Wall
street and Lombard street. He flouts the idea that there is any
unusual demand for capital in the world's financial centers. There
is no such thing, he declares, as a "money famine," as these half
baked authorities have imagined.
Mr. de Young has diagnosed the malady and describes it in
terms of pathology. It is not the banker but the doctor who is
needed. It appears that the financial world on both sides of the
Atlantic is suffering from an overdose of the eccentric Mr. Bona
parte. A little word dropped by the attorney general Jias done it
all. "Capital," says Dr. de Young, "is most sensitive. Hence the
state of hysteria which now reigns in the money market." ,Nb
doubt a dash of smelling salts will set things right, if only Mr.
Bonaparte will say nothing more about a receiver for the tobacco
trust or Standard oil. Otherwise, Dr. de Young, with his finger
on the financial pulse of the world, is convinced that the nibney
market will go on throwing fits. He fears the worst if Bonaparte
is not muzzled. ri'i*"' ~
Dr. de Young has this advantage over Mr. Bonaparte— that
nothing he says will cause the world to throw anything more
serious than fits of laughter, and while we would not for an instant
dispute his claim to be the doctor, we might venture, with due
humility, to suggest that he read and ponder these pregnant words
of President Roosevelt, delivered at Provincetown within a few
During the present trouble in the stock market I have, of course, re
ceived countless references and . suggestions that I hold a conference and
do something to ease the situation. There is a worldwide financial, disturb
ance. Most of it, I believe, to be due to matters wholly unconnected with
.the map of governmental- action, but it niay well be that the determination
of the government, in which it will not waver, to punish certain malefac
tors of great influence may have been responsible for some of the trouble,
perhaps to the extent of having caused these men to contrive to bring
about as much financial strife as possible in order to discredit the policy
of the government and thereby secure a reversal . of that policy in order
that they may enjoy unmolested the fruits of their evil doings. They have
misled many good people into Believing there should be such a reversal
of policy if possible. If so, I am sorry. Once for all, let me say that, as
far as I am concerned and for the eighteen months remaining of my presi
dency, there will be no change in the pblicy we have pursued or letup
in the efforts to secure an honest observance of the law, for I regard this
contest as one to determine who shall rule this free country.
"Things I Seen at Long Range — By a Gay Boulevardier,"
might be the title of the next series. Encore, Dr. de Young, encore.
POSTMASTER FISK'S POLITICAL ACTIVITIES
rinHE indecent political activities of Postmaster Fisk are begin-
I ning to attract attention beyond the confines of San Fran
£ cisco. In proof that Mr. Fisk has acquired more than a merely
local fame we quote from the' New York Evening Post :
' If San Francisco ever finishes with its big criminals and has leisure
to look after minor offenders, something may be done about the pernicious
political activity of Postmaster Fisk, who led the lost . cause against the
Reform league ih the republican primaries. Does the presidential order
against that sort of thing not run west of the Rockies?
Writing in the same vein, the Springfield, Mass., Republican;
says: "The big stick at Washington and Oyster bay may have a
chore to do in the San Francisco postoffice."
Apparently, the president's order in this regard does not run
west of the Sierra Nevada. Californiaris" have become so much
accustomed to seeing the postmaster of San Francisco and the col
lector of internal revenue doing ward politics for W. F. Herrin
and the Southern Pacific company that this condition has come to
be regarded almost as a matter of course, like, death and taxes.
Yet it is the fact that the president has made a very stringent order
forbidding federal officials to engage in the sort of politics that
parked Mr.'Fisk's recent primary campaign. Apart from orders
or rule^, it is a gross scandal that a high federal official should get
down in .the gutter of ward politics for a corrupt, purpose.
THE MARKET FOR CITY BONDS
§HF> : 'market for municipal bonds is matter for serious concern in
most of the large cities at the present moment. In San Franciscd
the board of supervisors is considering the submission of a
charter amendment that will permit the city to give /better
terms than the present law allows to buyers. New York and '^Boston
are finding the greatest difficulty in disposing of 4 per cent issues.'
There, as here, a variety of devices is offered to float the securities,
and among them the plan of a popular sale is proposed to' make
a market. The precedent of the national issue of bonds ; -at" the
beginning of the Spanish war is quoted as an example of; what
patriotism will do to relieve the necessities of government. '
Unfortunately the cases are by no means parallel:v.Th^ ready
investors who gobbled up the Spanish war bonds were wise, enough
to know that they had been let in on the ground floor to a good
thingand the buyers were able within six months to, sell the secu
rities at premiums that ranged from 20 to 25 per cent. The; fact
isithat the market for United States bonds is largely 'artificial'

very gratifying-success. There was no rush for>the bargain counter

of considerable [ creditors of i- tht : city, who saw no other ,way to get their
money, and who practically were compelled to-acce.pt a 'discount , on; their
bills iv order to a get 'anything. Nominally,' the, discount is on the bonds,
which they realized upon with no loss bf time, but substantially, the shave ; is
on the face of (he bill. A 4 per cent,-bo'n,d beloVv, par does not necessarily
imply an J inferior credit, and /actually does ; upt imply : such a thing when
it dignities a mere adjustment Ol yield to uhe. money market. But adis
coimt of any amount -whatever; on the city's due bills is a reproach which
will come to be realized: and, regretted. . , .
The fact is thatMiivestors can do better than' 4 per cent with
their .mdney. under existirig,j:on(iitions. How long these condi
tions may continue it is impossible to say, but the facts are such as
cannot be ignored by any city that wants money in a hurry.

The Insider
Makes two alarming discoveries regarding hab
its; of servantson vessels and trains'and now
finds less pleasure in luxurious breakfasts
. \u25a0^'~- „. .. - /~\NCE upon a time, going across the
Japanese Waiters -, ( \ hayOn discovered the
Sleep On Femes V-/ interesting fact that the Japanese wait
ers and kitchen assistants employed on the ferryboats sleep oh the lower
deck. On this particular occasion they were yanking mattresses and bed
clothing from storage places before the boat reached the pier. They spread
them between the seats and ere the last passenger was ashore some of the
••Ons of Nippon were honorably slumbering.'
But this discovery did not clear up a mystery that had long perplexed
me. I used to wonder where the negro porters*and waiters on the trains
sleep. At last it occurred to me to inquire. I'm sorry now, for on account
of the knowledge I acquired I do not enjoy my night trips by train. They
sleep, if you please, in the dining car. As do their little brown brothers,
when bedtime comes, they bring forth mattresses and bedclothing and
spread them wherever there is room — on the floors or on the tables — and
as the train rolls along through the scenery they dream of tips received
and to come. Before acquiring this knowledge I was always .particularly
fond of dining car meals, especially breakfast. It seemed the height of
luxury to roll along in the freshness of the early morning, eating juicy, re
freshing canteloupe or grape fruit, crisp bacon or nicely browned mountain
trout. Somehow these things have lost their savor now. To be sure, the
waiters and the porters arise early, and I hope the car is well ventilated.'
But. still--
