WILSON and Coffey, once supervisors, now indicted crimi
nals at the bar of justice, fall something short ; of common
intelligence. As somebody said of Porter Ashe,.they seem
to need a guardian. They will probably be supplied with
cms in the guise of a prison warden.
.. . • Wilson and Coffey obviously do not—or did not until Tues
day—realize the estimation in which they are held. They appear
\u25a0 to' have persuaded themselves that immunity included whitewash
with liberty to sin some more. The bargain was binding on the
other side, but not on them. Wilson is so crooked "that he could
..not lie straight in bed. Coffey is a cheap and nasty product of
•the- tenderloin, an example of the moral tone prevailing in the
slums and stews. Neither has brains enough to understand the
1 "enormity of his offense.
:.\u25a0 These men were promised immunity because they were able
;to.do a public service by testifying against the men who bribed
them. This' they promised and that contract they have broken.
The good public policy of this bargain needs no defense, but it
has been the subject of constant and malignant attack in the -press
Controlled by Patrick Calhoun or influenced by personal motives.
.In this city Mr. Hearst's Examiner has covertly attacked the prose
cution, and his sideshow in Oakland,; published by the predatory
Dargie, has been vociferous in attack on the policy designed to
bring the bribe givers to justice. The "Oakland Tribune has fur
nished a lovely spectacle, of whose inner meaning the public never
had any doubt.
..V .Mr. Hearst quotes himself with generous .praise for the fine
.sentiments that he announced from the stump in- New York. last
\u25a0Year. We take this example from an editorial-in the Examiner of
One of Mr. Hearst's most familiar slogans in the canvass of last fall
was his declaration of the principle that "there" should be an end of the
.system under which the little thief goes -to -jail -and the big thief goes to"
-Europe. .'.-.- /"r" :
Very fine, truly; indeed, a slogan of slogans— but the proof
Of. the slogan is in the performance. The policy that is good in
Sew York ought to work equally well in San Francisco, but as far
\u25a0as Mr. Hearst can bring influence to bear in this city it has not
been exerted on the side of the prosecution since the "day when
his demand to.be permitted to name the mayor was refused. It
might be called a libelous statement to say that Hearst ! was in
notorious alliance with Dargie, and the. greater the truth. the, greater
the libel. Dargie* is by degrees 'coming to some sort of sense of
t*e estimation in which he is* held by. honest men. The sting of
criticism in the press of California, in all parts of the state,. has
penetrated his indurated hide. He cries aloud: "Calhoun never
paid the Tribune or anybody connected with it a dollar for any
purpose whatever."
; Tell that to the horse marines. Dargie has had his hand out
behind his back all his journalistic life. The man who has money
•to spend for corrupt purposes never escapes Dargie. Ask Dingee.
• They are a pair of- noble brothers, Hearst and Dargie. One
is put for coin and the other is seeking office— not at all particular
which, as long as it is an office. They are both full of exalted sen-,
timents, strictly for publication, but neither seems eager to prac
tice what he preaches.
It is up to Dargie now to denounce the prosecution for not
keeping faith with the unspeakable Wilson, and he is quite equal
to the task. Mr. Hearst, we know from* his own lips, thinks it
would be .a' sin to send* Coffey to jail while bigger thieves go
to Europe.
I*T is not necessary to attach much importance to the fact, to
wnich his brother -, makes oath, that Eugene E; Schmitz has not
for j'ears contributed anything to the support of his mother.
His character ist sufficiently well understood without the aid of
sidelights. How much money he rriay have made in his career
of graft no one but himself may know. ;His costly residence
reared its front among the homes of the mighty. Millionairestfeli
over each other in the race to give him exotic rugs and other works
of art. When he traveled in Europe he put up -at hotels where
crowned heads are customary guests. He ' dined with Patrick Cal
houn in New York and withvVife President Fairbanks in Wash
ington, but he had not a, dollar -for his mother. . '1
While undergoing obscuration at the county jail Schmitz^has
pleaded for^intervals of liberty, appealing to the- judicial considera
tion because he wanted to visit his' mother. After fifteen-years
Schmitz'Had found a use for his mother. Let it go at that.
THE lay mind does not readily segregate or distinguish what
is really" important and new from that which is elementary ; in
the work of Professor Jacques Loeb ofthe; University of Caii
fornia,.When he states that'life is merely the result of chemical
reaction there ,is nothing very startling about that. The growth
of -a cabbage"; plant is nothing- more than chemical reaction on 'the
seed and soil^set/in motion by moisture. It needs no salt or "sea
water to.fertilizeithe eye of a potato. Different kinds of life/ different
chemicals. An, illustrious Frerich^ biologist and imitator of- Loeb
uses sugar in his instead of salt., Perhaps that is better. ' •
It is early yet, but Professor Loeb does not appear to be making
much progress toward stocking the farm with chemical ;pigs, sheep
and cows,' or hatching, parentless: fish. Who knows but the time
may come when the hen may precede the Ggg and be produced by
a process like making a pudding, one heaping teaspoonful- of ' salt,
two cups of sugar— is that too much'— and- a modicum of" flour?
Trie formula does not look, scientific ; because the ! kitchen is but the
poor relation of the laboratory and a /recipe for- orange marmalade"
stated in chemical / terminology would alarm and bewilder; the
cook. Let us not go too. fast, Brother Loeb. ' College' professors
are more plenty. than cooks and! not so skittish.t/rlrhagine t the"feel
ings of a respectable cook who discovers that thVingredients she

\u25a0 (4f-p«HE. permits . heretofore granted" to
I " persons to' 1 . sell flowers on the side

plications: for new fones: were denied."
The! above tiny kern appeared "'a few days ago in the court notes and
I wondered where were the eyes of the Qutdoor league, the California club
and other public spirited women that they let. the notice pass without men
tion. Don't we alLremember* a few years back,- the great protest that was
made all over the city When the supervisors ordered the flower venders from
the "sidewalks? '^'N6; no!*' cried the voice of the people, 'Heave us one of
the, most picturesque features of our city. -Leave us the 10 cent bunches of
violets, the carnations, the roses:" Leave us the Italians and their, pretty,
pretty ; flowers."
; The papers were full of interviews with ptominent club and society
women and -public men, who expressed their indignation at \u25a0 the banishment
of the sidewalk flower sellers. I remember one pathetic little paragraph
contributed by a working girl, who said she had a sick mother and every day
she brought that mother a bunch of fresh violet 3, purchased from a side
walk^ basket. "I can spare the daily dime," said the working girl, "but I
could never give my "mother -her bunch of violets if I had to patronize a high
priced florist." . .
, it was hinted that the supervisors .were standing in with the florists, and
all sorts of things were urged against the. matter of abolistiing the flower
sellers; Finally the baskets .were permitted to stay if the owners . refrained
! from placing them on the sidewalks. Henceforth the "obstructions**- de
pended from) straps hung about the peddlers' necks. They must have been
a heavy' burden. ;I have no doubt everybody was, relieved wnca the most
picturesque .feature of our city was permitted restoration, and we were
again rejoiced with 'the sight of the baskets and baskets of fragrant and
variegated blooms on the sidewalks at certain downtown corners.
Things are a little different now that Fillmore and Van Ness have
become, the shopping centers. They have picturesque features of their own,
no doubt, that appeal more ardently to *he society and club women and the

"You might, think politics and paint wouldn't
, mix,"* said a friend to mt the other day, "but
they do, and the prevailing tone of the mix
ture is red. . Down near the Sixteenth street depot in Oakland there b^a
huge, barnlike building as. red as.a .Southern- Pacific: section house, which
bears the sign 'McKinlay-Perkins Paint Co.* Somebody said for a Joke that
it might mean- Representative Duncan . McKinlay of Santa Rosa and Senator
George C. Perkins. But it was not* a joke, for that is just what the sign?
represented. However, the concern' goes further into politics than that.
One of the 'company* is Surveyor of the Port E. F. Woodward, another 4
is Appellate Judge Albert G. Burnett, and still another is George F. Hatton, -«,
Perkins' political manager. Congressman McKinlay ran a paint store in *
Santa Rosa he became an office holder; He tells me that he had a
brother whom he wanted to put into business and that Perkins had a son
whom he was eager to start in something. McKinlay talked about possible
profits in wholesaling paint and Perking saw it. They let the other politicians
have slices'of the stock. McKinlay's brother Jim says that federal ownership
is not bad when, it. comes to paint shops. Meeting him on the ferry boat
the other .morning a friend asked him.what business brought him to San
.Francisco that day, and he replied: 'Oh, I'm just going over to the United
States subtreasury to draw my "salary.' "
