THIS country suffers an unaccountable lapse of the super
vision that should be applied to the causes of railroad acci
dents. Casualties occurring on the railways are regarded and
treated as matters of purely local concern, and the- slipshod
inquiries that follow are usually perfunctory, often tinged with
politics and never informed with expert knowledge. Disasters by
sea are treated in a wholly different way and are followed by a
rigid inquiry, conducted by officials selected for their skilland
knowledge of seafaring life. Yet the number ofv casualties due to
railroad- accidents far exceeds the loss of life and limb by shipwreck.
Xot only does this expert examination follow and seek to
ascertain the cause of shipwreck, but the same bureau is charged
with the duty of inspection to ascertain the seaworthiness of ships.
Xothing of the sort is applied to the operation of railways. Every
thing is left to the discretion of the operating department. ITthe
railway officials see their way to make money by taking chances
on the lives of passengers, there is nothing to prevent.
There is obvious need of a national railway bureau of inspec
tion to regulate operation and ascertain the causes of accidents.
These duties, as far as they get any sort of attention, are now
intrusted to the casual coroner's jury, ignorant and irresponsible
mostly and very often selected by an official who owes his political
existence to the railroad company.
For the fiscal year 1906 there were 108,324 casualties to per
sons traveling on railways in the United States, and 10,618, of these
were fatal. Of those killed 359 were passengers; trespassers,
mostly tramps, made up about half of the total, and the remainder
were railway employes. The various railways in this country
employ 285.556 train hands, and of these one out of every 124 was
killed and one out of every eight injured. The list is a frightful
one. larger than exists in any other country.
The loss of life by shipwreck is probably greater than on the
railroads, but there is not that frightful butcher's bill for personal
injuries for which the railways are responsible. The. traveling public
and the railway employes whose lives and limbs are put in ieopardy
have the right to such supervision o^ apparatus and operation as
may best insure their safety. " /'
ROLAND B. MOLIXEUX. once the central figure of a.sen
sational murder trial, writes from his prison experience of
the reformation of criminals. In brief, he concludes that
all sentences should be of indefinite term, and no convict
-hould be released until he demonstrates his complete reformation
to the satisfaction of a court of rehabilitation. ' iV
It is very well that men of intelligence and education, like
Molihcux, should be able to give us the benefit of their observa
tions of prison life from the prisoner's point of view. In Charities
and the Commons, a periodical of philanthropy, Molineux tells how
the court would work : N
Civilization will have advanced a step when for the first time a prisoner
appears in that court. The burden of proof being upon him. he makes the
'.peninp addre«s. A little halting, perhaps, it is at first, yet it shows the
intelligence these years have developed. He tells the story of hi« life
previous to imprisonment, it can be verified, and then shows by witnesses
all he has since accomplished. The warden testifies to his perfect discipline;
a teacher to his having learned correctly to speak, read and write the Eng
lish language; possibly, he has even mastered a foreign tongue; also he is
now expert in keeping books, or he has worked in the various shops of the
prison, and instructors pronounce him a skilledmechanic. Also it is shown
that dcnoMted in the prison treasury are his savings, the state having paid
him for his labor. Friends, relatives, or those that have become interested
in him during his imprisonment, prove that \vork t has been provided for him
in some place distant from his former temptations and associations.
That is very pretty and might work well when applied to the
lower forms of crime and criminals, but let us' suppose, for the
>ake of argument, that Patrick Calhoun; or some other captain
of industry, should be sent to^prison for bribery on; air indefinite
sentence; how would he be^able to prove 7 his 'reformation to the
satisfaction of a court? He is already able to read and write the
English language. Quite possibly he has mastered a foreign
tongue, but even that did not keep him out of mischief. He is
i-xpert. too expert, in keeping books, but that does not always: keep
a man honest. **
The Molr jux -'an would be hard on the "higher ups.". They
might have to stay in prison until the crack of doom or until they
could show themselves fit to be trusted where public; utility fran
chises are lying about loose." , /
MR. HEARST declares open war on Mr. Bryan. Most : peop!e
suspected that Hearst had a knife in his boot, ready to
be stuck into "the peerless. leader" if occasion should offer,
when nobody was looking. Quite possibly Hearst "will say,
even now, that he is not attacking Bryan, but merely tlie unprin
cipled followers of the Nebraskan, who are organizing {he, Massachu
setts democracy by hook and by crook to' carry the state; delega
tion for a twice beaten candidate next year. .. V
Mr. Hearst devotes many columns of his Monday issue to
an; exposition of his view of "the high handed .exhibition of gavel
rule by which the Bartlett faction gagged the democratic Estate
convention." It is a quarrel that concerns]. California (noi at 'all;
,and has only the. most trifling intrinsic interest in the west. When
it is given place on the first page of Mr. Hearst's^ San Francisco
newspaper its 1 only significance. lies in the exposure of bad blood,
between the newspaper^ publisher and Bryan. It -appears that!
George Fred Williams, the Massachusetts politician, captured, bound
and gagged the convention v and took: the organization away from
the Hearst faction. This is theway Hearst views it:
The boldness and irregularity of the whole proceedings, as carried ' cyit
by Williams and his lieutenants, has caused much speculation in democratic
circles in the state today as to the: attitude Mr. Bryan will assume.
These tactics are even worse than any ever attempted by corporate in
terests to control conventions and dictate the nomination of friendly candi
dates, which have been denounced so bitterly by Bryan and other radical
leaders. * -
Another interesting phase ofthe'situation. is the fact' that, Bryaiv fought
unceasingly against the seating of. the Illinois delegation to thelast national :
democratic convention in St. Louis' in 1904, headedby Roger Sullivan of
Chicago. ,
Persons familiar with both situations declared yesterday that the tactics
of the Bartlett faction, supported by Williams, Bryan's friend, -went even
further yesterday than the Sullivan faction went in Illinois three years ago
to control that delegation. '-" . . / -^ . , .
How will "Bryan's friend" like that, and how will Bryan
like it? Its only public interest lies in its bearing on; Hearst's
recent declaration that he was not a candidate for the democratic
noniination. For the rest the view taken by the policeman on
the ground appears to cover the case: "It's just a few democrats
fighting- among themselves, and we ain't called on to interfere until
they begin to throw things." >

The Insider
(jives Some interesting facts about the con
structibn of the Montgomery block, the first
large fireproof building in San Francisco
NOW that fireproof buildings are going
up by the score it is of interest to recall
the first fireproof structure of any mag
nitude ever" erected in San Francisco. It was completed in 1854 and was known
as "Montgomery block." Its owners, twice burned out in the fires of the
fifties';' and determined to- avoid further loss from that direction, purchased
the three beach and water lots; on the corner of Washington and Mont
gomery streets and started to isolate the building by running a street 30 feet
wide from Montgomery to Sansome. They gave 15 by 137 feet of .their
land and induced other property holders to contribute the necessary re
mainder. So a street named Merchant was added to the city map.
'General H. W. Halleck, who superintended the construction of "Mont
gomery, block," had been superintendent of construction of forts, and the
cement walls he built were so thick and solid that not a single brick could
be^loosened/ The east wall was 20 inches thick. The building, which was
four stories high, had hot a.single opening in it and boasted a high parapet.
For many years it was th Y e headquarters of brilliant and well known lawyer*,
renting for $6,000 a month. Later it brought $4,000, and after that fell to
$1,200, monthly. "Montgomery block" has perhaps earned more money in
Tents than any other one building of its size in the, city.

Approaching the door- of a beautiful country
home in Belvedere last Sunday in the act
of 'saying farewell. to my hostess, my atten
tion vras attracted by a superb painting which hung at the side of the
entrance. The scene was a landscape and was surrounded by a deep gilt
frame. The landscape depicted a stretch of water with a cloud flecked sky,
steep banks and tossing trees. Apparently a high wind was blowing. It
was" a magnificent work of art full of unrivaled lights and shades and with
a strength and virility about it which is amazing. I turned for a la?t look,
and rubbed my eyes, for I thought I must be dreaming: The picture was
moving! NoF the framed picture itself, but the objects — the water, the trees,
even the clouds in the exquisite stormy sky. An indefinable, inscrutable
change came over the pictured landscape"* even as I gazed. In amazement
I turned to the owner of the remarkable painting and mutely questioned
with my eyes. She laughed outright.
"Don't worry," she said. "You are not the only one who has been
puzzled by that painting. It really is a paintirig, but by the great artist
Nature. You arc looking at the real thing, and the frame is only placed
there to give the natural objects the effect of being a^picture. We had a
section of the, wall cut out and the frame fitted around it. Is it not an
idea?" And I thought it was.
A Moving Picture
That Was Genuine
The last yachting cruise of the season has a
royal story following in its wake. A certain*
yacht crew after a long and jolly sail entered
on the home stretch after dark. A raw wind had been blowing all the after
noon and all the things on board that could be applied as first aids to the
chilled had been used. Perhaps that was why the approach to port seemed a
trifle difficult. Nathless all hands managed to steer an appreciably straight
course until quite near their anchorage, which they might have reached in
safety had it not been for the red and green lights- of a big vessel which
hung directly in their path. After several futile attempts at passing the
winking lights one disgusted mariner grew weary. "Oh. ram the old hulk,"
he said Indignantly. "Go for her good and hard; anything that'll make
her get out- of the way." The congenial spirits on board did their work.
The boat's. nose was headed for the dismal hulk which persisted in showing
her starboard and larboard lights to the discomfiture of tired and hungry
sailors, ,when — presto!- the yacht shoved her way deep into an unexpected
bank of mud and sand. The mariners scrambled forward the better to see
what had happened. At least they had got around those. light 3.. But their
rejoicing was" all too soon, for there straight ahead loomed the red and
green lights as big as ever. When the sailor boys finally discovered after
much scrambling and tumbling that what they had been endeavoring to
ram was merely the brilliant lights of a drug store some 40 feet up the
beach the language in use was reprehensible even for amateur tars.
