QUEER METHODS OF THE TROLLEY DEFENSE
IN the manner of .Patrick Calhoun's defense of himself and his
indicted associates there is already a good deal to give his
admirers pause. There is also much that Calhoun's purchased
press, from the Oakland Tribune to the Los Angeles Graphic,
will find difficulty in explaining and in reconciling with Mr. CaP
houn's orotund professions and pretenses of public^ virtue. ..
The retinue of the trolley magnates, as exhibited in. the Ford
case, makes a remarkable picture. Behind the expert lawyers of last
resort troops a motley train of gun fighters, professional pluguglies,
decoys, disreputable "detectives," thugs, women of the half world
and the wolfish pack of gutter journalism. It must be, indeed, a
hard case that needs such bolstering.
How wilt Mr. Calhoun square with his protestations of high
mindedness the presence and the efforts in his behalf of suchi
creatures of the slums and stews as "Bogie" O'Donnell and "The
Banjo Eyed Kid? Are these and the others of their kidney labor
ing in the same behalf friends and sympathizers of Mr. Calhoun or
merely his hired men? ,
And, having explained and squared and reconciled himself with
himself in this regard, Mr., Calhcun may pass on to the exposed
plot to decoy Lonergan, the trapped boodler, to a place or into a
condition in which he could not give testimony about the trolley
briberies. It is essentially the public's business to know whose
money goes to pay\that "journalist," Borland, who coaxed Lonergan
to go with him for a "good time" ; the public is interested to know
whose money was paid for the automobile that was to have carried
Lonergan out of the reach of the court; the people would like—
and they have the right — to know who hired the "lady friends"
that sat in the automobile — the poor, painted things with whom
the trap was baited; are these trolley trollops on the trolley pay
roll? And, then, concerning the second automobile that was .-to
have made up the equipment of the kidnaping expedition— will Mn
Calhoun acknowledge or repudiate it and its occupants?
Incidentally, the undisguised activity of "Melrose, the Southern
Pacific detective," who shadowed Lonergan during the noon recess,
affords material for speculation along another line. * It seems per
tinent to ask what a Southern Pacific employe is doing in the
curious defense of the United Railroads' indicted officers. Is Mel
rose borrowed for the occasion or does his presence .in the trolley
retinue indicate a deeper and remoter interest in the case? , ; .
These are but a few of the early manifestations of the defense
of Calhoun et al. Probably the trolley magnate, whose bosom
swells when he thinks upon his own high honor, would say, if he
were minded to speak of these „ elements in his defense,, that he
knew nothing of them — that, conscious of his own rectitude, he
had left the details of its protection and vindication to his counsel.
It is the. corrupt corporation's way to saddle, its sins on its lawyers.
Counselor Rogers say he does not know his chief client, Mr. Cal
houn. How easy, then, for Mr. Calhoun not to know "Bogie"'
O'Donnell or "The Banjo Eyed Kid" or "Journalist" Dorland or!
any of the other decoys and kidnapers. But, none the less, it is
Mr. Calhoun's work these' worthies are doing and it is Mr. Gall
houn's money that hires them. A word from him would clear the
courtroom of the thugs that throng it; his word would disperse
the Httle army- of case fixers and kidnapers— -but he will not say
that word- .. . \u25a0 «i
Very likely, Mr. Calhoun will resent •exposure of the means
employed in his behalf, but he must blame himself alone if, in the
larger court of public opinion, he is found guilty of practice wholly
at variance and essentially incompatible with his avowed principles:
Whatever the thugs, the Dorian ds and -the Browns, with their
automobiles and their wretched women decoys, may accomplish
for him in the way of legal defense, they can only damn him before
the people. It is a desperate defense.
A SOUTHERN PACIFIC BLUNDER AT SACRAMENTO
THE vote of the Sacramento city council refusing a franchise
to the Western Pacific bears all the earmarks of an old fash
ioned Southern Pacific job, the, sort with which the. people
of Oakland and other urban communities on the ' bay have
become so disagreeably familiar. Doubtless the arguments used
to consummate all these jobs are .-very much the same. On this
point some of the Sacramento councilmen are in a position "to
: enlighten the public— but they won't.
It is not long since Superintendent Palmer of the Southern
: Pacific company said that his corporation had created Oakland, ahdj
having held its business for forty years H meant to continue its'
hold on the town. Apparently the same grip has had Sacramento*
by the throat, but, as in the case, of Oakland, there; is evidence
that the Southern Pacific clutch, is in a ; fair way to be ': loosened,
not willingly but by. force. . ' . '* ': .
Just as- in Oakland the Western Pacific has- forced its way
to tidewater, so in Sacramento the same corporation will -find
the road opened by the force of public opinion, acting; in the orderly
course of law/ When the people of Sacramento come .to vote by
process of referendum on the franchise gra^nt N to the Western
Pacific the result , will never be in doubt.
The impartial observer from the outside might wonder' what
profit there is for the Southern Pacific in these tactic* of obstruc
. tion by corruption. ; There V was a time; it J is true, when these
methods, proved effective, but that day is past and will not return.
j The best and wisest thing that Harririian can do is to abandon

company. Mr/ Harriman may not be ready to -believe this yet,
but he will get a message from the people of California next sum
mer that will open his eyes. Herrinism is played out. ,: V • ,' •/.
THE future coal supply of -the Pacific, coast will come;. from
Alaska. -The coa] fields in tHe state of WasHington, are already,
J^ hearing: exhaustion. The : British Colunlbia" fields are uncertain
in"product. In fact, the Pacific coast" is threatened with a re-"
newal of the coal famine during the coming winter .which rnighttbe
serious in California, were it not that our domestic demand is small
and pur v manufacturing * and transportation f needs are supplied by
fueloil. '. -, ': * .C* • ' / 4 '
There is coal .enough in Alaska of good quality to- supply the
whole consumption of ; the United States for a hundred years, Hut
for the most part it lies .untouched for want of legislation to re
| move restrictions in % the mining" laws which were properly r imposed
to limit the size of placer, gold claims. The Alaska mining laws
enacted by congress limit the size of claims,to 160 acres, and capital
will not invest in coal mining on \u25a0so small a scale: Gar
field has had this . matter * under consideration, and it : is ' believed ". he I
will make recommendations on the subject "in his next; annual re
port to congress. . -/
The grCat value of the 'Alaskan coal fields lies; in the fact
that .they are in large part close to tide -water. : A considerable
proportion of our present: supplies of coal on this'xoast must bear I
the high cost of transportation by rail. Alaska coal will prove a I
greater source of wealth than all the gold of. the placers^ but it may
find a rival in the copper output of the territory, t . v
A movement is afoot in San Francisco to recover some of our
lost Alaskan" trade.. It is time that this community woke? up Ho the
vast potentialities of ; a commercial and! industrial; sort that are lying
fallow in that vast region. \u25a0 -' ''''\u25a0%'' .'/• '-•'*'

A name is told by one of those who re

was a sailor-boarding house somewhere. down near the water front- Directly
opposite it was a well, the chief source of sypply for the inhabitants of the
boarding place. All nationalities frequented this lodging house, among them*
Russian, a big burly fellow, good natured and obliging, a tremendous drinker.
One day the Russian was missing. His sailor mates thought he had drunk too
much and had wandered away somewhere, probably with} friends.. Days
passed, but he did not return. .Meanwhile* the had been working aa
usuaj, furnishing its full' supply of water, and nothing strange had been
detected until the morning, when the hucket refused ;tq.go below the sur

The corpse was buried quietly on the hill adjoining)? at the edge of Its '
farthest slope, but the story gat out. It flew from mouth to mouth, and in
its repetition the hill where the sailor was buried came to be spoken of as
"the Russian's hill." After a while more bodies were interred there, and a
little graveyard was formed on "the Russian's hill". While the story was
finally forgotten still the name held. In the course of time article vtd pos
