IT was General Franklin Bell who said, not long ago, "There is
something wrong with the army/ and then left us guessing.
In the absence of specifications we are consumed with bewil
dered conjecture and maddening inference as to the nature of
this wrong. Quite possibly a solution of the public doubts and
fears may be found in the general order that captain and colonel
and knight in arms must all demonstrate their ability to keep the
saddle for fifteen miles without falling off. This seems like cruelty
to soldiers of that eminence and it raises the suspicion that only
roujrh riders are wanted in the army.
It may be that officers of the local garrison will regard this
summary test of horsemanship even as our best citizens do jury
duty — something from which to be excused, if possible, and wholly
out of their line. There is Colonel Biddle, for instance, .who does
most of his riding on a snagboat and does it to admiration. Colonel
P.rainard rides the garrison bakery wagon; Colonel Appel rides
the ambulance and Colonel Bellinger rides the rolling deep like a
horse marine. It is a sin to snatch them rudely from their peaceful
vocations and set them jolting roughly on a hard bitted mount
over a rocky road, chosen with malignant purpose^to wear out a
colonel or two and make promotion. '\u25a0'','}>'
The army is not what it was. The veteran's lament is heard
in the land. He may no longer be an officer and a farmer. There
is no more of that generous rivalry between companies as to which
could raise the finest potatoes. Here we have it first hand from
the Arm)' and Navy Journal:
All that is gone, and with the company garden also has gone the com
pany cow and the officers' cow, too. There used to be a time when the
veriest shavetail who dared to get married kept a good cow. Out on the
plains there was gra?s galore. In some western posts you could keep a
row out on public grass nearly every month in the round year. When the
word caJTie to pull up and move station there was little trouble in selling a
pood cow either to the troops who were coming in or to some nearby settler.
In tho^e day? we could live better and cheaper and there was solid satis
faction in producing that part of the table supplies. Now, with the increase
hi the army >ince the Spanish war, there are too many officers who came
from city life and are as helpless, as quartermasters and commissaries, as
babes in swaddling clothes. ~ \u25a0''\u25a0'\u25a0 t
Xo more the army raises the obstreperous onion; vanished is
the regimental cow in brass buttons; no longer the chickens come
home to roost by bugle call, /and even the army mule of accursed
memory sees his finish.
The old order changes. There was once a veteran general
of much fame?Nvhose ' name need .not be mentioned, as he had
the good luck to die before the military fadmongers insisted on
rough riding tests for well nourished officers. Of this veteran it
was said: "On parade days I would rather be General Blank
than his horse; on other days I would rather be the horse."
THERE are signs on the political horizon of a boom for Uncle
Joe Cannon, but it is not yet clear who is manning the pumps.
If there should be some suspicion that the boom is stuffed —
stuffed with warm atmospfhere — whrv, let that pass for the
present.- It is the way* of booms. The men at the Taft pump are
flooding the country with broadsheets. Cincinnati was never before
the center of so much intellectual activity. It is a vulgar error to
suppose that Cincinnati can produce nothing more literary than
a circus poster.
The Cannon boom is modest and wears a goatee, chews a
straw and carries, a pitchfork, a peaceful and not warlike imple
ment of husbandry. The Cannon boom, again, puts on rio frills,
proudly eats off the knife and points with pride to the tariff, the
noblest work of Dingley. Let us pray.
Uncle Joe is undeniably popular, because of a certain homely
humor that he cultivates . and dispenses. Besides, he is a good,
found American of the best corn fed type. Nevertheless, there
are doubters. Here, for instance, is the man from Missouri, who
wants to be shown. Thus one finds the St. Louis Post-Dispatch
complaining that Mr. Cannon is too foxy and too sparing of the
comfort that St. Louis needs! We quote:
The best that Mr. Cannon could say/to the people who were hungerine
and thirsting for fourteen feet through the valley was that nothing was to be
hoped for in any direction in congress except as a result of compromise He
had always favored nver and harbor appropriations and the inference was that
he would continue to do so. ! ' V
It is to be feared that the emotional orators who handed their guest
several presidential nominations in one evening were not fully awake to
Sthe fact that Joseph G. Cannon is too old a bird to be caught with chaff
They slid too much and he said too little. • ;
It is the Missouri measure of a statesman.- If Uncle Joe would
promise to allay that astonishing hunger and thirst conjured by
'the Post-Dispatch he would be a child of grace. But a people
who would eat the wild Missouri by the yard, are not readily
appeased. First thing you know they will be calling" Uncle Joe
a "reactionary."
It is, perhaps, too early to forecast the future of this tender
plant. The political boom is always most prosperous in its infancy.
A new boom sweeps clean, although .a little later it may Abe
chucked out and cast into- the fire like Fairbanks.
THE violent hysterics of certain New York newspapers brought
on by the forthcoming transfer of the battleship: fleet; to ""Pacific
waters continue with ever increasing extravagance. Thus we
find in the Sun of recent date this extraordinary editorial
He (President Roosevelt) needs it;becausC;it means that- this country
shall go to war. Well, go to war we doubtless shall,- and as chccrtully and
enthusiastically as heart of man could wish; but the people want to know first
what the casus belli is which lies between this country and Japan. They want
to know whether, if any exist, it is not appropriately referable to The Hague
conference, if indeed it is notjsach as may be dealt with adequately by
the simple exercise of common sense. lv::
\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 • \u25a0 -
It seems as if the force of Rooseveltophobia could no farther
go. The policy of the Sun is anything to injure Roosevelt, no
matter how extravagant. It is little short of criminal to charge
the president of the United States with deliberately seeking to
provoke war. It presents Roosevelt to the country as a man of
devilish and malevolent purpose and puts him in the class with
Benedict Arnold.
v When the" battleship cruise was first mooted the New York
papers saw in it the deep, dark politics of . Machiavelli Roosevelt,
who planned thereby to gain control of the California delegation
to the . national convention next ' year. ,- When : it was pointed out
that this was making hard labor to convert the converted and that
nobody could take away ; from Roosevelt the California delegation
if he wanted it, then the New York papers had to invent something
new. The matter is mentioned here only as proof of to what lengths
certain influences in the east will go in their frenzy to Injure
Roosevelt. There is no means or variety of slander that is not:
welcome to 'this crowd.
In a way air this is amusing. It is, ridiculous to see men like
Harriman and Pierpont Morgan, who have proved their genius as
financiers, making a silly exhibition of themselves by butting their
heads against a stone wall in politics, It "is "-.a natural but absurd
trait of the purse proud man to regard himself as invincible in all
fields of endeavor.
Hartje proposes to reopen his di
vorce suit. It looks as if some men
positively t yearn for odium."

Depicts the Alarm of a School Teacher
When She Was Pursued by a Blacksmith,

OUt Father Could -L\ to her c i assro om early the other morn
ing and happened to glance in at the door of a blacksmith's shop as she
passed. She saw the glowing forge, the heated interior, the shoes and nails
and other appurtenances of the trade, but she also beheld a large, black
haired, leather aproned man who in the act of swinging a hammer over his
head emitted a sort of yell at the sight of her and started at racing speed
toward the door. The frightened teacher waited for no more, but also started
down the street at her best gait, which she made more rapid than her bulk
would indicate her capable of. After a block or so it became apparent
that the blacksmith was gaining and the crowd that had collected quickly
from everywhere to watch the outcome of the exciting race cheered the
teacher on. Suddenly she turned a corner and found herself in a quiet street,
and oh, horrors! she heard the heavy breathing of the blacksmith close
behind. With one last, desperate effort and a sort of dazed wonder that even
in the face of all the stories of footpads she had heard a murder could
be committed in the city in broad daylight, she gained the shelter of some
steps in an empty flat near by and sank down on them prepared to die. The
blacksmith rushed on her and seizing her by the shoulder said in a voice
hoarse with disgust:
"You blamed fool! What you scared of? I want to tell yer my girl
Annie ain't comin' to school today. That's all."
n.n .^ _ nrua +i i The sound of the steam whistle? which wake
Pioneer Whistle Is the echoes every houf on San Francisco bay
Heard On the Bay - ls rc mi n isccnt of a time when the first steam
whistle that ever startled the town sounded over the bay and hills. Yerba
Buena then claimed 32 houses scattered all the way from Brown's hotel to
Washerwoman's bay, and the grand army of the United States which occupied
the recently gained territory of California was comprised of two dragoon?
whom General Phil Kearny had brought with him on his trip across
continent Solemnly and punctually the two solitary dragoons answered
roll call each day untilone morning the peaceful quiet of the Presidio was
broken by the sharp, short blast of a steam whistle. Air was excitement
In a moment, and when an instant later the steamer California, carrying mail
from Panama to Astoria, hove into view around the promontory where rose
the old Spanish fort with its bronze cannon the two dragoons shouted for
pure joy. That was in February of '49, and that steam whistle of the Cali
fornia was but the precursor of the scores which 58 years later were to
pass through the Golden gate daily, almost unnoticed and unheard.

No. 1, the old locomotive is an eight wheel engine with cylinders 18 by 22.
and was built in Philadelphia. It has seen good' service on what was known
as the Sacramento Valley railroad, which then extended only to Auburn. It
cost $125,000 to get the old engine around the Horn to begin its service in

The Smart Set
AN. engagement of great Interest
hero Is that of Misa Marie Ber
ger and- Charles Sutro, which Is
being announced to their closest
friend* this week. ' The news has long
been expected, for Mr. Sutro's admira
tion for the pretty southern girl was
well known, even before she left San
Francisco for Europe last December.
It was thought that they might an
nounce their engagement then, but
Miss Berger decided. to wait until she
returned from abroad\ She sailed from
New York at Christmas time with Mrs.
Charles O. Alexander of this city, who
is an old friend. They spent the winter
months on the Riviera and went on to
France, England and Germany In the
spring, returning only a short time ago.
Miss Berger and Mr. Sutro then made
their engagement known, and arrange
ments for the .wedding are already un
der way.* It is to be one of next
month's events and will take place very
quietly in Miss. Berger's home in south
ern California. The Berger family Is
well known there antt Miss Marie, who
has paid many visits to San Francisco,
has warm friends in both places. She
Is a graceful, slender girl, with dark ;
eyes and masses of rich. brown hair.
Mr. Sutro belongs to the old Cali
fornia: family of that name, being a
son of the late Gustave Sutro. He is
popular In business and club circles
her« and It is with much regret that
hit' friends learn that after their mar
riage Mr. and Mrs. Sutro will make
their home in the southern part of the
Mr. Sutro'» mother. and sister are in
New York, en route to San Francisco,
after several years in Europe. They
will return to California in time for
the wedding.
