TT is not clear why the board of supervisors should deny trans
| portation to the people resident on the line of Geary street.
][_ This thoroughfare passes through the very heart of the resi
dence district and puts it in touch with the downtown busi
ness quarter. Such facilities for transit as are offered by this rail
way supply a very real need.
It is not necessary at this time to discuss the policy of spend
ing a large sum to build a municipal street railway. The point
to be made is that there is no intention to begin this work in
the immediate future. No contract has been let, nor, as we under
stand the rijatter, are the plans complete. It may be six. months,
perhaps a year, before the city is ready to tear up the present
tracks. In that interval the residents served by the Geary street
railway should not be denied facilities for transportation that can
be put in operation within the hour.
The contention of a member of the board of supervisors
that the railway company should forego its claim to the rails, in
consideration of being permitted to reopen the line, is met by the
answer that the company cannot make this surrender without the
consent of the bond holders, who hold a mortgage on the physical
property. Whether the Geary street railway company or the city
owns these rails is a question that must be settled in court.
While the road lies idle the city is losing a not inconsiderable
revenue which the company agrees to pay and has paid into the
public treasury as a percentage of the gross receipts. The people
along the line are suffering for lack of transportation, and the only
person who profits by the tieup is Mr. Patrick Calhoun, whose
lines get the benefit of the overflow.
The Geary street road can be started up at once. There would
be not the slightest danger to the city's rights in letting it run.
The temporary permit can be made from month to monthV week
to week, or even day to day, in order to avoid delay when the
municipality is ready to begin building its line. It is plainly the
duty of the supervisors to enter into such an arrangement dur
ing the interval between this date and the beginning of con
struction. The public wants the Geary street cars to run.
THERE is active rebellion in Tacoma against the billboard.
The prevailing state of mind in that, city was stimulated in the
first instance by a monstrous double decker advertising sign
that shut out the whole north end from view of the magnificent
and inspiring mountain from which the city* takes its name. The
Tacoma improvement society took up the matter and has succeeded
in persuading the author of this monstrosity to take it down and
out. This success has inspired the society to further efforts to
minimize the nuisance. The case for the society is stated in a
letter written in reply to an advertiser who used the board as
You state that 5-011 "do not have much concern for beautifying cities.
That is, we might individually, but not as advertisers." The people whom
you are trying to reach are "individuals" and take pride in beautifying
their city and "have concern" in so doing. It appears to us that you, as
•"advertisers,'' must take note of this feeling of the people of a city in oppo
sition to k billboards that disfigure the city, because, if a system of advertising
is distasteful to people it. is not a good system, is it? Your object 1 is not
to offend people, but to . attract them, is it not? j
How many goods would you buy of a travelingman who came into
your office and presented his wares to you in an offensive manner? The
manner" of your advertising strikes other people the same way.
Old residents 'of San Francisco will remember the time when
the sky line of Twin peaks was disfigured by the huge advertising
\sign of a local firm. But when remonstrance was made the mer
chants who were responsible for the erection were quick to see that
it was bad business and at once removed it. It will not be disputed
that sentiment has much to do -with the success of advertising.
Merchants who use vulgar and offensive methods of pushing their
ide will very quickly become identified in the minds of the public
th a cheap John, catchpenny trade. '
HE new supervisors have done more work and more good
work for the city in _a month than their malodorous prede
r cessors did in a year and a half. The record of Monday's
proceedings in the board shows what an arrear of work must
be made up. v It is a big load, but the board has got a move on it*
Among other things, the action of the board gives reason to
hope that the wrecked dome of the city hall will not much longer
offend the eye and outrage the sensibilities of San Franciscans.
The neglect of this eyesore by the late board for more than a'yeir
was a gross scandal, as well as eloquent testimony to that body's
incompetence. The first thing an eastern visitor, does when he
strikes San Francisco is to unsling his camera and take a snap
shot of that melancholy dome in its looped' and windowed ragged
ness. Then he. laughs, and who shall say that. San Francisco.
has not in some degree earned the gibes of the scornful stranger?
The point made by Supervisor Sullivan that the city: does not
need a separate hall of justice appears to be well taken. There
was a time when San Francisco could afford to. indulge in such
extravagances; .but there is present need for every penny for the
municipal necessaries. There should' be no 'difficulty in accom
modating all the departments of Justice as well as the city prison
under one roof. The city haU 'is pretty near the center of .city
life and is the right point of concentration for- municipal'. business:'
The streets are not being, neglected in the press of municipal
affairs, and the provision of $600,000 for their repair gives promise
that by the time the rains begin our chief thoroughfares will have
acceptable roadways. The city is at length getting the benefit
of a businesslike administration./ It only needs common 1 sense' and
common honesty.., . .\u25a0..••_-_: , ', \u25a0> \\ Vr.r
THE decision of the third district court of appeal in the matter
of a superior court judge for Shasta, county -closes a political
episode which, in the process of its . evolution, was creditable
neither to Governor Gillett nor to Dr. Pardee, his prede
cessor in office. L : •
In 1905 the legislature^ dominated by a set of rascally politi
cians, created a. second judgeship for Shasta county against the
protest and warm remonstrance of a great majority r of the people
in that political- division.. There was no more need for a
superior court judge in Shasta than for a fifth wheel on a coach,
and everybody knew it. But Governor Pardee signed the bill and
appointed a man to fill the place. -It was altogether a piece of
discreditable politics. '-\ } r
Last year the people of Shasta county, feeling themselves
unjustly, treated by the imposition of a gratuitous burden, devised
a plan to get rid of; the superfluous judgeship and; elected Judge
Head to the place, on his promise that he would not qualify. That
promise was fulfilled, but Judge Bush, fardee's \u25a0 appointee, con
tended that he continued in office until his successor qualified.
This pomt > the court of appeal decides to be not well taken and
the tax payers of Shasta are relieved. of the useless load. Governor
Gillett, ' like* Pardec, in defiance of tHe popular wish, sought to
fortify Judge Bush in his superfluous office by reappointirig him
in March last. There is need of plain speaking alSout this affair,
because botH governors do not appear to have realized that they
were engaged-on a mean and unworthy job of public plunder./

Tells of the famous rectors who preached
powerful sermons beneath the lofty riave of
' Grace Episcopal church many years ago
-V- „ i'l x rr^HE final demolition of the ruins of
Recollections Of I . Grace churc h, admittedly the nearest per
* Old G race Church /*vfect- specimen of Gothic architecture in
this city, recalls some of the stories which cluster around its historic remains.
Grace church began its career by a disappointment, for it was originally in :
tended for cathedral purposes and was built fa/ Bishop Kip, but, throngh some
disagreement in the church body politic, it was- never the cathedral. Many
famous . rectors officiated beneath its once lofty nave and many famous
sermons delivered there are remembered with vividness by the people
of today who listened to them in the early seventies. One in particular
caused a sensation. It was when the best known and most erratic rector
of all "the brilliant line announced one Sunday morning that be had had an
extraordinary and appalling dream; in fact, that it had made such an }in
pressionion him that he felt impelled to accept it as the basic subject of
his discourse that morning. He said that he had dreamed that God was
dead, 'and he went on to deliver one of the most remarkable sermons the
auditors of -Grace church had ever listened to. He portrayed with startling
effect the awful chaos, the darkening and trembling of heaven and tha
frightful blank of earth which had resulted from that fearful happening.
The sermon created a big sensation and a number of his hearers were
unwilling to leave the church at its close.
V««W f n th" Another well remembered and effective ter-
Dance Ot UeaiD mon was ? strong protest against the evils
Startles Auditors o f ballet dancing. So thrilling and pene
trating were the preacher's words that his hearers declared that they ac
tually saw the skeletons and dry bones whirling before the altar and heard
the rattling and knocking of the fleshless frames as he described the "Dance
of Death" with all its attendant horrors.
Still another striking and brilliant discourse was on the "Dead of
74," when the names of all those eminent in social, business or political
life who had died during the year were recited and a few brief and pregnant
sentences containing some truths were delivered about each name as it
was. read. The list was a noteworthy one. As the sermon came to a close
the rector, pointing an impressive finger at those seated in the pews, uttered
slowly and with marked intensity, "Who shall it be next year? Who?
Who?" the finger moving in review over the alarmed occupants of the
pews and seeming to pause at Certain places. "Who?" he repeated sol
emnly, and with v the echo of that condemning voice in their ears the haughti
est and most aristocratic congregation in the city filed down the aisles
silent as before the crack of doom.
