' -/ ' AN OAKLAND MORALIST DESCRIBES HIMSELF THE moral processes of William E. Dargic, publisher of the Oakland Tribune, as explained by himself, find their inspira tion in the gutter. The popular impression in Oakland that Mr. Dargie changes his opinions only when he changes his meal ticket is a mistake. Ke has said so himself. The anonymous letter writer, actuated by malice and too cowardly to sign his name, is the source from which Mr. Dargie declares he derives those moral ideas that he has elevated to the dignity of a com mercial asset. This easy moralist does not take the trouble to verify a slanderous accusation. Any man with an ink bottle and a malicious spirit is good enough authority for Dargie. He has said it. It is no exaggeration — this account of Dargie's methods, as explained by himself. Of course, it is not true. It is, indeed, so lame as to be pitiful. That a man should so degrade himself as to refer his action to a bundle of anonymous letters, containing charges that Dargie knc.v to be false, shows to what straits of evasion he is reduced. These charges, to which Dargie attributes his rapid conversion, were so obviously inspired by malice and without foundation that this tender moralist wasted no- time or money in attempting to verify them. This is his own testimony. If any of these anonymous charges had borne the slightest aspect of probability Dargie would have rejoiced to find the proof. When a man sinks so low that he can find no more creditable explanation of his action than a bundle of malicious letters, which he does not even now pretend to believe, some guess may be made as to how base his real motives are. One day he is convinced of the wickedness of the grafters and the boodlers. The next day it is only the prosecution that is vile. A bundle of anonymous letters accomplished this miraculous metamorphosis. So says Dargie. ' ; The plain truth is that Dargie's morals for publication are on sale to the highest bidder, and the man who buys them gets a gold brick. If you doubt it ask any man who lives in Oakland and knows the sort of reputation that this thrifty moralist has acquired. To be sure, the picture of himself, drawn by himself, is not alluring; but it beats the real thing. "TEARING UP THE TOWN" TT is not difficult to understand that certain disgruntled mem- I bers of the police force would be pleased to make the. municipal J[ administration unpopular, if it could be done, by neglect of duty. The slack discipline and petty graft that had become a habit under Dinan are not" likely to be cured in a week or a month, and any attempt to improve the efficiency of the force is at once resented. Now the attempt is being made to give .1 the administration a bad name by /extending a certain immunity to pickpockets and thieves. Dinan directs the work and his criminal friend, "Kid" Sullivan, "king of the pickpockets," provides the work men. It is the old Tammany trick of "tearing 'up the town." Disaffected policemen are able to promote this criminal scheme without showing their hands in a way that can be made the basis of specific charges. All that will be attended to after the' election of Taylor, and' these disloyal officers may make up their minds that he will be elected. We do not believe that they, constitute anything more than a small minority of the force, but Dinan had placed them in posi tions where they could do mischief. In the meantime, their records are kept and their cases will be attended to when the appointed time comes. THE SORROWS OF HARRIMAN K. HARRIMAN is troubled because the newspapers treat him badly, and, indeed, in his view, the whole generation of railroad magnates is suffering from the same affliction. PThey are not given a hearing by the press. ; All this is distressing, and Mr. Harriman's sufferings now tnat he has discovered them — will bring him a ready sympathy. Most of us who have had^to do with the making of newspapers had imagined that publishers were only too glad to give railroad meira, hearing on all occasions. Indeed, the newspapers have been nursing, a grievance because they attributed the difficulty of finding out the truth about- railroad matters to a calculated policy of con cealment dictated by the magnates. Let us take an example within Mr. Harriman's knowledge: One year ago the annual meeting of Union Pacific was quietly held in Salt Lake City. 'At that time the naked announcement was made that the company had a cash surplus of $55,968,582, chiefly accruing from the winnings made in the Northern Pacific deal. .No announcement was made of the purpose to which this vast sum was to be applied, but Mr. Harriman was given full power to deal with it. He did not call' in the reporters. to explain his- inten tions as to the disposition of this money. If any of the stock holders imagined that these accumulations \yould be applied- to improve the physical condition, of the property he ; was badly mis taken. Mr. Harriman had other ideas, but he kept them closely comcealed; wisely, perhaps ; unwisely, perhaps. \u25a0 -'^'/ i Mr. Harrinian,* keeping his mouth shut, took this $55,000,000 ! and, borrowing $80,000,000 more, went into the st6\:k market .'and bought at top prices on an inflated; market. The depreciation jn the stocks that he then' bought witK other people's money^has run EDITORIAL PAGE I "What Is the Pleasure^di^^efOij^x^h?:" into many millions, but Mr. Harriman has not shown any anxiety to explain his extraordinary policy. y As a result of indulging this debauch .of t speculation Mr. Harriman found the Union Pacific in, straits and had to issue bonds of that road for $75,000,000 on a tight money market. "He now complains that he cannot borrow money to make the needed extensions> He, blames the newspapers and orders the work stopped. '/ Mr. Harriman has not shown any disposition to explain these transactions to the newspapers or elsewhere. His testimony on , the matter before the interstate commerce commission was shifty, evasive and characterized by reticence. Mr. -Harriman's disclosures are welcomed by the newspapers wnen he tells the truth, but very often he does not tell the truth. Suppose he had calledrin the reporters after that meeting in Salt Lake and told them that he intended to use $130,000,000 of Union Pacific money for the pur pose of speculation on Wall street— we venture to say that not a newspaper in America would have refused him a hearing. THE FARMERS' VIEW OF ASIATIC IMMIGRATION IT is a popular fiction among the advocates of Asiatic immigra tion that the farmers, and fruit growers of ' California are suffer ing for want of such labor as the Chinese and Japanese might be expected to' supply. This fiction has had a sore setback from the recent action of the California state 7 grange in rejecting by a decisive vote these resolutions offered by John Tuohy of Tulare: • . \u25a0_)\u25a0 The want of labor sufficient for the industries of this state is a serious detriment to the same and more particularly to our agricultural ones. . We ask _ the National grange to urge and use its best exertions for such a modification of our exclusion laws as will admit annually a suf ficient number of Asiatic laborers to meet the deficiency. The plea of antagonism between our own people and, people of Asiatic races is not well meant or just. Our own people and industries want a class of labor that.will.do a class of "work to which .we ? do not desire to see our own people subject, to which they need not and will not be subjected if Asiatic labor, to a sufficient extent, is admitted. As the Chinese exclusion law now stands it is the result of envy and prejudice; it is a -feproach to. the high of the United States; it is a detriment to our > industrial .progress. We ask the National grange to use its best endeavors to have it modified. These resolutions" were defeated by a 2 to I. vote after a. full discussion on the floor, in which B.G. Hurlbut of Santa Clara county represented the sense of the body when he said: 4 Not alone would the orchardists suffer if the Asiatics were allowed free entry into ' this cotfntry, but . the. merchant, the manufacturer, would also suffer from the deplorable conditions that would arise from the great influx of the undesirable Asiatics.- \u0084 * \u25a0' < ; * .Let us not modify the present exclusion laws, but let us vote that the government of • this country pass more stringent ones, and let our watchword be. "America for the Americans- and desirable European im migration, and not for the Asiatic hordes." \ Those farmers who have had experience with Japanese" labor know, that it is trickly and untrustworthy. When they get the farmer in a tight place they' do not hesitate to break a 'contract and hold -him up; for a higher wage. -> \u0084"-\u25a0"\u25a0 ; \u25a0'" Notwithstanding the ' action of the state grange, the, fiction about the farmers' long felt want persists in the pro-Asiatic press, of which tliere are examples even on this coast.

The politi cal, organization known as the Tam many \u25a0 society j was organized in' ISOO. In 1789 William \u25a0 Mooney, an Irish- American politician, founded In New York/ city the; Columbian order, a se cret society, which in ISOS was incor porated as the Tammany society, named after the Indian Tammany,' and wear ing Insignia, especially a buck's tall. In 1800, by careful work under Aaron Burr," the order controlled New York city politics. Next, under Daniel D. Tompkins,- It became the administra tion wing of the democratic party in New York city, upholding Madison and opposing the Clintons. The bucktaiU and the Albany regency controlled the state for a < long: period.. 1i01822 the power over the society had gone into the ; hands of its general committee. A- stricter organization, followed and Tammany developed into a machine for securing success. in elections and pow er and plunder for its chieftains^- Al ways indifferent to principles, it grew worse after the influx of foreigners into the city till after the war its cor ruption " culminated In the scandalous performances of the.

I was standing at the corner of Fifth and Market streets, waiting for my car. A man who abo waited lost his hat as a gust of wind cyne whirling round the corner. While .he was running for it he aroused the mirth of another man on the opposite corner. Just as another roaring "ha, ha!" burst from the lips of the second man another big wind took the center-of the stage. Whir-r-rl, and the second man's hat went sailing up in the air, straight into the Em porium excavation. He had to climb up and>en down and search a few mmutes^xefore he could find it That was the first man's opportunity to laugh, and he did it. So did the rest of us. Burgess Bromide Idea Is Haiinting Twain. Don't you find yourself looking for them? I met a charming young bride the other day and our first sentences of greeting revealed the fact that we had a mutual friend. I knew at once from the look in her eyes that she was going to deliver herself of a flat, bromidism and was not dis appointed. "What a small world it is, after all," she/ said. A group of women were chatting in a Key Route car Sunday. I.found myself listening, involuntarily, for bromidisms. My expectations were realized. "What strange things happen every day," said one of them, and just them another woman over the aisle was saying, "I just washed my hair; I can't'do a thing with it" Oh, why did we ever hear of the classification of bromides?

Knowing that Helen was not fond of peppermint her mother asked her how she came to buy that particular sweet for her treat "Well, "neither of us likes it," said Helen, "but you. know peppermint is medicine. So if the candy makes us sick the peppermint will make us welL" The Smart Set SOCIETY folk here are delighted to learn that the Hopkins family and all three of the married daughters will come up to town for the win ter after all. Their original plan was to stay in San Mateo again this year, but the opening season has proved too attractive to be Ignored. Mr. and Mrs. William Taylor Jr. have taken a charm ing house in Broadway and the Au gustus Taylors will stay -with Tay lor's parents in their Pacific avenue home. Mr. and Mrs. Fred McNear have almost decided upon an apartment in one of the big. new apartment houses. All these -will come to town on «the first of November, but the Hopkins family proper will not come up for another week or two. Miss Florence, the only remaining daughter, ,whose coming out party next year is being discussed, went back to school in New York last we^fcte. Miss Mary Keeney, who has been her guest for the summer,' returned to San Francisco a few days ago. First of the debutantes' affairs yet to be announced is the coming out party of little Miss Helen Baker, who enters upon her first winter as a recognized beauty and favorite. The date set for her. debut is November 9 and it will take place at the Fairmont hotel under auspices that ought to make her envied, among the year's debutantes. A few days before the event Miss Baker will be hostess at a luncheon in her own home, her guests being 14 of the debutantes, some of whom will help her receive her mother's friends at tha following affair. •• - • Cards will be out in another day or two for a large tea., on November 16, at which Mrs. Newhall will be hostess.

This is sure to be one of the really important events of the opening season, for both sisters are beauties and both popular in the most exclusive set.
