ROOSEVELT'S SPEECH FITS. LOCAL CONDITIONS
\ I IHE Sari "Francisco . situation is closely fitted hy the words of ;
;'::|"" President Roosevelt in his speech unveiling the McKinley;
v'X • mon^ ITient - His warning touches so closely certain sinister!
••- influences at work in this city that it is worth repeating: :
From .the standpoint of our material prosperity there is only oneother ;
thing as the discouragement of a spirit of envy and hostility
toward honest' businessmen, toward honest men of means; this is the dis
couragement'of dishonest businessmen, the war upon the chicanery and
wrong doing which are peculiarly repulsive, particularly obnoxious, when
exhibited hy men who have no excuse of t Want, of poverty, of ignorance,
for their,; crimes. Men of means, and above all men of great wealth, can
exist in safety under the peaceful protection of the state, only in .orderly
societies,' where liberty manifests itself through and under the law. It is
these men who, more than any others, should, in the interests of* the class
to which tHey belong, in the interests of their children and their children's
-childreli/seek in every wa}', especially in the conduct of their lives,' to insist
: upon and to build up respect for the law. It may not be true from the
standpoint of some particular individual of this class, but in the long. run
it is pre-eminently true from the- standpoint of the class as a whole, no less
than of the country as 'a whole, that it is a veritable calamity to achieve; a
temporary- triumph by violation or evasion of the law. - 4
Mr.. Patrick Caihoun and Mr. Herrin might ponder these words.
. Possibly a year ago they might have scoffed at the president's
warping and gone their way, but in the light of recent events they
may* be able to find circumstances that assist and emphasize Roose
velt's conclusions. The prosperity of political corruption is not
promoted by grand jury indictments, and although justice. marches
\yith leaden foot her progress is so much inexorable that. we shall
expect' to see Mr. Calhoun an ardent convert to the president's
inaxim'that "we show ourselves the stanch est upholders of 1 the
rights of property when we set our faces like flint against those
offenders who do wrong in order to acquire great wealth or who
use this wealth as a help to. wrong doing."
When that conversion is recorded Mr. Calhoun will no .longer
be an* argument in boots, a modern instance for a Roosevelt holiday.
LANGUAGE FOR POLITE CIRCLES
; <4 V>| O - OPERA ' TION '. the wise it call. Steal! "Foh ! A' %:o for
I,r the phrase !" So might one parody the word of a. wise man.
\u0084, .;. XJ If We have any aspirations to move in polite circles we shall
c .;.-.* not in future be permitted to speak of trusts or conspiracies
y fca "restraint of competition. The word has been given out and has
gtine down the line with amusing and suggestive unanimity. One
<". Kinds John D. Rockefeller, for , instance, making announcement
. .Chrbugh the Hearst newspapers — his recently accepted mouthpiece— -'
//« this oracular vein : v
.. The future is boundless. We are in the infancy of our economic de
..";.velopment, which must proceed, as it has followed during the past 40 years,
. t^ie^line of consolidation and co-operation.
It may be a mere coincidence that Chairman Knapp of the
; interstate commerce commission the other day in the course of \u25a0\u25a0 z
'public attack on the policy of the Sherman law against trusts' re-
I "marked that the daj r of competition was over and its. place would
\be taken by co-operation.
Very well. Let us see something of the results attained by the
. co-operation that Rockefeller uses. Here are the figures taken from
,*a sworn statement showing the profits of Standard oil for ["eight

Nay, these profits were not stolen-from the pockets of oil
[ consumers. It is just an instance of the working of the beneficent
law of co-operation. There have been examples of co-operation.be
, tween the burglar and the policeman where the thief felt -bitterly

BRIGGS OR JENNINGS—WHICH ?
I.T_is not in the sense of a new battle of^Dorking or'of any tinpanj
mimic war that the impartial observer offers congratulations
and felicitations enough to fill a bushel basket to. the illustrious
Rufus Jennings, promoter and hot: gospeler^of California, -for: his
bloodless capture of the American navy and his v defeat oil the inter
:.|. loping Briggs. Battleships and cruisers, admirals and even
• the uncomfortable bulldog, known as Hardtack^ on the .West Vir
ginia, all acknowledge the sway of Jennings. He. owns the navy
and the horse marines. He will use them to keep westbound trains
full and eastbound trains empty. Every one of the great fighting
: machines will be^ carrying on its quarterdeck a ninety-six pound
pumpkin, labeled "Grown at Milpitas." : . From "the. firing '• line one i
il learns that in the first .engagement the wretched and intrusive
Briggs* was compelled to retire in. confusion;
Bat - Briggs is hot so .easily shaken off . .He is : known of /old
as a foeman worthy of the Jennings steel. ; To call out the/reseryes
was but the work of an -instant for the. strenuous Briggs. To be
sure, he;: had been caught napping on the outbreak of war by a
night attack delivered by Jennings, 'who -always: keeps a reception
; committee up his sleeve. But Briggs, nothing dismayed; rhairr
v shaled his - boards and his : chambers and ; all \ the powerVof Bumbled

Galls attention to the iact that San Francisco
-has quite a colony of citizens who have
received decorations from potentates
TN.the article on, the papal titled nobility. of
I America in the Sunday supplement of The
"*• Call I saw no mention of two San Fran
ciscans who were thus honored by, one of the popes. True, they have passed
away, but Ihe honor of their titles still remains to grace their family trees.
We had a "Marquis" D. J. Oliver* and a "Marquis" Murphy. They were
both honorable, tradesmen in our city in the early days of Its growth, and
both •accumulated millions. They were both so liberal in ? their chanties
toward ' their church that they were presented with patents of nobility by
the, pope.
• Oliver left a large family, most of whom still reside here. The Murphy
children; one "reads of frequently in the foreign dispatches. Since their •
famous lawsuit, when^picy letters passed between 'the' sisters, Lady Wolscley
of England and Miss France's Murphy of thi3 city, were read "aloud in court
and - reproduced in the published accounts of the' case, the girls have not
been fond of i their native : city. Helene, the great beauty of the family,, Jk
married: a Spanish nobleman, blue blooded but untitled. Captain Bernard
Murphy only lately received newspaper mention again from the fact that
his ex-wife, Mrs. Jenner, sued for a share of the estate.
;' : v Speaking of titles, there. are quite a few not in daily use, but owned
bySan Franciscans: The Baron yon Meyerinck is a real baron, bat becanso
he is a book Jceeper discards his fancy name in everyday lifcj Henry Hey
man was made a knight of the late King Kalakaua of Hawaii, amd George
Hall has a Turkish title" which he doesn't believe- in txsing in America.
Amedee Joullin, no longer with us, but by rights our, own,, was given an
order of some kind" by the French government, I believe. Careful inqiary
may reveal the fact that^we have f'quite a titled colony m our devastated aty. '

"Nellie" Calhoun is going to visit her San"
Jose relatives this summer. "Nellie" is a
princess now, having wedded one of th*e
various claimants to the Servian throne, one Prince Lazarorfch-Hrebellano
vich. She has lived abroad so 'long that San Jose and even San Francisco
will' likely look strange to her. There are very few of us wao can remember '
the local debut of Miss Calhoun. Like most of the Melville-Snyder pupils
who made their debut in great style at s the. Grand opera house, Nellie chose .'
a Shakespearean character to show^hef. 'friends what she could do as 'an
actress. She "did" all right/ and wh^en ;tfte real stage claimed her a little
later on she -became at once an actress^ Mrs. Hearst-was very fond of
her/ took her- to Washington, D. C, introduced her to high society there,
and if was generally understood that she^deaired the beautiful Calif ornienne'
as a daughter, in -law. Perhaps her son didn't see it In the same light; per
haps Miss Calhoun didn't. At any rate the charming actress went abroad
and 'spent many years in Paris, studying and improving herself. She is
said to have been the only foreign actress who ever "succeeded with a Frencfi^
audience, acting in' their language in French plays.
Miss Xalhoun's next move for fame was through the revival of early
Elizabethan, plays ihrEngland. She is an authority on those classics, I am
told. -Sheihas a sister, -Jessie, who also made good on the stage. ...
