THE POLITICS OF IT
THE Examiner gave half a dozen lines to the recent Sacra- j
rnento primary and concealed them on a back page, at the
bottom of a coiumn. The victory* of the Lincoln-Roosevelt
league in that primary made the most striking piece of political
news recorded in recent California history, but the Hearst papers
could see nothing in it. Why?
The explanation is not obscure. Hearst has effected an
alliance with Harriman for political purposes. In these^days you 1
will see nothing in the Examiner by way of criticism of thff Southern
Pacific company or the political activities of W. F. Hcrrin. .The
Sacramento primary and the remarkable victory of the Lincoln-
Roosevelt league delivered a decisive blow at Herrin and the
"organization." In the days before Hearst had concluded his alliance
with Harriman the Examiner would have printed a page about that
Sacramento primary. -
Hearst's speech at Jamestown was a direct bid for support by
"the interests/ and they are responding generously. Colonel
George Harvey is the editor of Harper's Weekly and the North
American Review. lie is the more or less, illustrious proponent
of Standard oil's defense, and the most conspicuous because the
most noisy opponent of the Roosevelt policies. Colonel Harvey is
now ready to take Hearst to his bosom. In Harper's Weekly he
remarks, with unction: "Indeed, we now find little that is objec
tionable and much that is pleasing in Mr. Hearst's papers." And
he is filled with admiration for Mr. Hearst's "broad, sane and reaily
strong utterar.ee at Jamestown." Isn't that lovely? ; 'r*
Hearst has no editorial policy but slush. His meaning and
intent are shown by the way he handles the news. He now sup
presses or obscures the facts that might damage his allies, Herrin
and Harriman. That is the politics of it.
UNSIGHTLY BILLBOARD ADVERTISING
THE billboards of a city should be made to yield a revenue to
the public treasury. That plan is followed in Rio\ Janeiro,
with notably good effect. Such advertisements are taxed on
space, and the consequence is great concentration, with
improved artistic effect. In a word, the object is gained by putting
brains in the advertising, and thus making it attractive by intrinsic
merit. The Rio Janeiro system is thus described:
Every business "sign" in Rio de Janeiro is taxed. Every sign in a
restaurant or cafe, similar to the placards one sees in oar restaurants, must
have a revenue stamp attached to it. Permanent signs are taxed on a per
manent basis, and temporary ones on a stamp basis. "To rent" signs
bear revenue stamps. Similarly billboards and notices on temporary in
closurcs of buildings.
The tax materially limits the extent of billboard advertising,
and that is a positive gain to the community, in view of the
unsightly features of these monstrosities. The revenue derived by
the municipality from this source amounts to some $40,000 a year,
and San Francisco . might very well take the -hint as a means to
help out a depleted treasury.
In Tacoma the -movement to limit billboard acjvertising has
taken another shape, but the object is the same? — to relieve the city
as far as possible from disfigurement. A local improvement society
has instituted a campaign of education, with a purpose to convince
advertisers that they are doing themselves no good by making the
town hideous. A combination of this method with the Rio Janeiro
plan might prove useful for the common good.
PROHIBITION FOR INDUSTRIAL REASONS
THE recent extraordinary prohibition movement in the southern!
states does not please the oldtimers, the mint julep colonels,
for whom Marse Henry Watterson may be assumed to
speak. This is the way he talks about the new; pro- 1
hibitionaries : j
Along with their crazy prohibition law — the vile, Illegitimate offspring i
ol a liaison between the Puritans of religion and the blacklegs of politics —
the result of a combine between populism, pure and simple, and a remnant
of what has the impudence to call itself democracy- — a duo between two
discordant musicians, Holey- Poky Smith, playing second fiddle to Tom
Watson — loom into view the familiar troop of humbugs, of the old firm of
Pecksniff, Giadband and company.
In fact, the movement is of another kind and does* not find
its impetus in pharisnism, as the blue grass colonels pretend.
According to the most impartial observers the people of the south
are voting for prohibition because they are convinced, that the
negro — their negro — cannot be trusted with whisky. It is in the
interest of industrial progress and efficiency that Georgia, Missis
sippi and other states have, voted prohibition.
ABUSES IN WEIGHING THE MAILS
IT is announced that the postofiice department will shortly begin
the annual systematic weighing of the mails to determine rail
road compensation for carriage. It may be timely to hazard
a hope that the opportunity will not be seized, as has been the
practice, to load up the mailba^s with congressional documents
and mutton pies, sent under frank. A carload of speeches ; by
Congressman Mulligatawney on the tariff, or a bale of printed
wisdom on the fisheries dispute by the member from Podunk, ; may
help materially to raise the average weight for which the govern
ment must pay on the assumption that Mulligatawney's activities
are normal. Then there was the queer but original plan of weigh
ing the mails for seven' days and taking its average for six days.
The whole scheme, as it used to be, was /devised to swindle the

treasury for the advantage of the railroads." Possibly these abuses
will be remedied or avoided in the forthcoming tests, but we have
not heard that steps have been taken to reduce the rates paid for
carrying the mails, which are stiil greatly in excess of those paid
for express matter. If the government had its mail matter car
ried as- cheaply as that of the express companies the postofScc
department might show a profit instead of a deficit. Few' forms
of enterprise have shown such vast and disproportionate profits
as the express companies.
That. 1,000 per cent profit is enough
to make Russell Sage turn in his grave.

Worries Attached
to Davis Fortune
\u25a0What a melancholy sight tha bottom ct San
Francisco bay must present! A direr re
cently told me of going down to the City of
Chester, sunk many years ago at the month of tfcs harbor by one of the large
China steamers.. He descended with a stout fceart and a v±ii iaured to the
tragedies of the sea, but when he saw two sisiers of charity sleepins quietly
La their berths, and, near by, a man on hia knees, spraying back and forth
vith the motion of the tide, and a dim. mysterious light over all tha somber
objects, his heart failed him, and he gave the signal to be hauled abcre. Ths
San Rafael lies there, too. She went down in ISOI, sent to the bottom by
a collision with another steamer in the fog.. The relentless tide runs over
her cozy cabins and beautiful stairway, dank wita the passage of tins.
Melancholy Sights

The San. Rafael was not a donble ender ar«l so tha situation whila sha
endeavored to turn on her trips was a little strained. Sometimes Ehs bad to
go nearly to Mission bay, weavins in and out among the many craft in the
aarbor before she could get fairly started. Every one would sccct the Idea
of danger, but nevertheless boo&swere not brousht cut nor was the conversa
tion unconstrained till the beat had accomplished her turn and -was sa&^~
plowing her way £o the bright shores of Jlarin county.
And there lie also, caught in the seaweed, the City d Rio Janeiro, tfca*
Escambia, the May Flint and the Caleb Curtis, the last a p2ot boat sank in
a blinding fog. Truly the bottom of the bay i 3 paved with memories.
