LINCOLN-ROOSEVELT LEAGUE'S SIGNIFICANT VIC
TORY AT SACRAMENTO
THE very striking victory of the Lincoln-Roosevelt league in the
Sacramento primary is notice to the "organization," which
means W. F. Herrin, that its place is in the political ash
barrel. The San Francisco primary tol4 very much the same
story, although not in such emphatic fashion. A vote of 4 to 1
in favor of the league makes a remarkable demonstration of public
sentiment. The address issued by the league in Sacramento tells
the storj' and assigns the cause, which is not at all peculiar to that
city and covers the whole state, to wit:
The organization has disrupted the republican party of Sacramento by
forcing program nominations contrary to the wishes of the voters, thus
making the republican party a mere machine to do the bidding of a few
bosses for their own profit and to serve private interests.
The scandalous history of the state convention at Santa Cruz,
the juggling and trading in nominations, judicial ami executive, at
the bidding of Herrin, are bearing fruit in public resentment and
disgust. All over the state the same feeling finds expression.. The
influential republican press of California is unanimously behind the
movement to destroy the domination of the Herrin ring. The occa
sional supporters of the gang are hunting their holes, among them
such as William E. Bargie of the Oakland Tribune, who is for
the moment chiefly conspicuous by his absence.
It was time that something were done to lift the disgrace.
What could be thought of a gang that saw fit to put oh the repub
lican ticket for a high state office a man like Andrew Wilson,
boodler. who has escaped the penitentiary by the skin of his teeth,
but still draws $4,000 a year from the state of California by the
grace of William F. Herrin?
The gang got its notice to quit at Sacramento in tones that
will not be misunderstood and the lesson was needed. The only
way to convince men of that stripe is to hit them with a club.
They have controlled things in California .so long and so com
pletely that they are become drunken with power. On no other
theory can be explained their insolent refusal on the eve of elec
tion to grant a Sacramento franchise for a railroad jthat will com
pete with the Southern Pacific. And the United States attorney
for this district, Mr. "Go to Hell" Devlin, sent his partner to
oppose the grant.
This indecent spectacle supplies the measure of regard in which
public interests are held by Herrin and demonstrates the tight grip
that he holds on the official machinery. The people have resolved
to break that grip- They are breaking it.-^
WHO ORDERED THE COCKTAILS?
IF the Fairbanks cocktail is to become an issue in the forth
coming national campaign the voice of the people will demand,
in no uncertain tones, something more definite in the way of
specifications. What kind of cocktail, for - instance ? It' might
be the insidious Manhattan or the dry Martini, or even the beguiling
Gibson. Some of these potations are reputed by the experts in
such vanities to have hygienic virtues, like, for example, the
Panama cocktail, which has been compared by high authority to
cough medicine, partly because it tastes that way and in part
because it drives away the pestilent rheums and damps.
We pretend to no knowledge or skill in such hot and dis
obedient medicine, but in its bearing on this controversy, recently
revived, we have the word of Bishop Berry of the Methodist
church, who protests. and declares: \
(1) That the vice president did not order the drinks; (2) that he did
not even notice that they were on the table; (3) that he never touches a
drop of intoxicating liquor; (4) that "it is well known that. Mr. Roosevelt
likes it now and then," and (5) that the arrangements were entirely in the
hands of the caterer. -Ju*>~~'-
The good bishop adds that "either President Roosevelt or Sec
retary Loeb, and not Mr. Fairbanks, ordered the cocktails served at
the luncheon tendered them by the vice president at Indianapolis."
Now, of course, that points an easy way out of the difficulty.
Put the blame on Loeb. He is used to it and that is the way he
earns his salary. But it seems that this patient beast of burden
kicked at this final straw. It was the last ignominy to imply that
he would assume to give orders in the house of his host. . He retorts
with generous indignation:
The statement is too absurd to be given any credence. Neither the
president nor his secretary either directly or indirectly, ordered anything of
any kind at the luncheon in question or at any other luncheon where they
were guests. \u0084
In this hurly burly of bishops and presidents and their under
studies, making the welkin ring, the mere man. becomes bewildered,
but if a suggestion might be hazarded it would be to hang the
offense on the caterer. It is always safe to. blame the cook. 4 He is
not running for office and the devil made him. Remember that,
TWO BUREAUS WITH A SINGLE THOUGHT
THE immunity granted to the Chicago and Alton by the gov
ernment parallels the case of the San Francisco grafters. The
railroad company turned state's evidence against the. Standard
oil trust, and the federal department of justice grants immunity
therefor. The offense committed by the railroad company was
quite as serious as that cf the Standard, but <it was not possible
fo convict either without the testimony of the other. That "is
txactly the case of the bribe givers and the bribe takers in San
Francisco. They are equally guilty, but .the prosecution has pre
ferred to strike at the source of corruption in the same fashion • that
News Item: A Russian newspaper refers to the United States as "the new
world power." A" .
the federal government pursued in prosecuting the oil trust, which
forced rebates from the railroad company.
The parallel is pursued still farther when we find the active
literary bureau of the 5 Standard attacking the, government because
of the immunity granted to the railroad. Harper's Weekly leads
the pack in full cry. Blanche, Tray and Sweetheart give tongue.
Colonel "George Harvey declares that the conviction of Standard
oil is "a travesty on justice."
People generally understand all that, but it is quite suggestive
when v 'we find identical "tactics in use by the United Railroads';
literary bureau, which is' so active in San Francisco arid the neigh-;
boring cities. These mouthpieces of the street railway corporation
are vociferously of opinion that it is a bitter shame to" prosecute
the bribe givers and let the little rascals go free. Two bureaus with
but a single thought. ;•
THE 'Alabama state bar association, with the purpose of ex
pediting justice and bringing to an end the law's delay, proposes
that all the states shall e^act a statute to this effect:
No judgment shall be set aside or. new trial granted in any case,. civil
or criminal, on the ground of misdirection of the jury or the improper ad
mission or rejection of evidence or for error as to any matter.: of pleading
or procedure, unless in the opinion of the court to which the application is
made, after an examination of the entire cause, it shall affirmatively appear
that the error 'complained of has resulted in a miscarriage of justice.
That is already substantially the law in California, but it is
held in very slight regard. The trouble with all such legislation is
that it leaves in the appellate court a discretion to decide what is
and what is not a miscarriage of justice, and from the very nature
of the case it is impossible that this discretion shall be taken away.
A judge whose mind naturally runs to technicalities. and trifles can
readily find reason for believing that a miscarriage of justice was
due to this or that trifling flaw. The only cure for the law's delay
is to cultivate a better frame of mind and a sense of intellectual
humility in your appeal judges.

Questions why Addison Mizner is mentioned
in Chambers' new novel and wonders if the
authors ask pay for complimentary notices
T-N ID Addison Mizner have to pay to get
1 J into Robert W. Chambers' new novel,
\u25a0\u25a0— ' "The Younger Set"?
•^He 'got .what in newspaper advertising circles is called a reading notice—
an ad for his business of supplying .fancy bric-a-brac to the rich and the
newly rich. On page 19 of the latest book by the author of "The Fighting
Chance," Mrs. Austin Gerard, a wealthy woman, is showing her rococo home
to her brother, Captain Selwyn, the hero of the tale.
"It. isn't so bad^from the outside," she says, "and we have just had it
redecorated inside. Mizner did it."
Brewers pay to get the names of their product into musical comedies;
I wonder if the rule applies to popular novels.
A few lines further down Chambers gives a reading notice to the
Holland hotel. While he had his hand in with the Mizner family he should
not have switched, but should have named the caravansary which Wilson
Yerkes Mizner is conducting in New York.

London* s Story on
One of 'the most exciting of the early day
horse races, that took place in San Fran
cisco, called 'then Yerba Buena, was held in
'47 between Canalo, a roan owned by W. A. Leidesdorff/and a bay called
Hiram, so named by James Hudspeth after the man from whom he borrowed
him, Hiram Smith of Napa. Hudspeth knew Canalo, having come across
the plains with L. W. Hastings, who made the journey on the roan. Canalo
had won everything in sight after Leidesdorff .bought him from Hastings,
so one of the Sanchez boys induced him to challenge any horse in the state
to race Canalo for $500. Hudspeth, knowing what the Napa horse could do,
borrowed him and accepted the challenge. Hiram was a good sized bay
and had been used as a plow horse, but had a lot of speed. John Stilz
of San Jose was hired by Hudspeth to bring the horse to San Francisco by
way of Martinez and San Jose. He was brought across the strait 3of Car
quinez all right and was stabled for the night in Martinez. Before morning
some one stole him, and it was two weeks before Hudspeth recovered him,
out of condition and without the training needed/ But Hudspeth was deter
mined to race him anyway. He had Hiram hoisted into a scow and conveyed
across *the bay, arriving just in time to enter the match. The whole town
turned out to see the race, which was a 600 yard dash oyer the JVssion
Dolores course. T. M. Leavenworth wa3 starting judge and Hiram was
ridden by Granville Grisby. The result was a surprise, considering the big
bay's condition. He gave the roan a thorough beating. Dozens of SO and
100 vara lots, now worth millions, changed hands, cash being scarce in those
days, and the backers of Hiram had their pocket 3 stuffed full of Alcalde
deeds. Hudspeth. then bought Hiram for 50 head of Spanish cattle, worth
