SAN FRANCISCO'S BEST ADVERTISEMENT
THE tone of the eastern press in relation to San Francisco
has undergone a remarkable change, due to the election of
Mayor Taylor and the good government ticket. That elec
tion was the best advertisement San Francisco has ever had.
A month ago this was the horrible example among American cities.
It was pictured as a place to be avoided by decent people. It
was "the wickedest city," and so forth and so on. Nothing v/as
let) bad for unhappy San Francisco, according to the eastern yiew.
In one week came a complete reversal of judgment..; The elec- j
tion of Taylor did it. From east and west comes a chorus of con-"
gratulation over the redemption of San Francisco from* the clutch
of the boodlers. Leading newspapers' everywhere are emphatic
in expression. Thus the old , fashioned -and- able Springfield
Republican:. .
Mayor Taylor's election by 11,000 plurality is one of those encouraging
triumphs for good "government and common honesty in municipal affairs
that have. never yet in this country failed to arrive wben the dock has
Strode the hour warning Americans that they faced. a deadly peril to. their
institutions. Mayor Taylor's plurality shows that. ordinary party lines were
swept away by the voters and that union labor, as,a political force, could
rot hold the urge earners in a solid phalanx against the cause that Dr. ;
T^y;cr^«o plainly represented. Thebeart of the nlopleis sound in America:
T«e great majority, -regardless of party, desire : honesty and efficiency in
r-uMic affairs. Bring them at last face to fece-with the naked moral issue
and they may always be depended upon. /"
The. Providence Journal finds -cause for rejoicing in the way
that party politics was set aside for the common good:
San Francisco is redeemed tcr 'stay redeemed, in spite of the vicious
zttcrapt, initiated in_ the last hours of her* municipal "campaign, to muddle
with partisan '.puerilities a profound civic, issue. The triumph of the forces
cf *cmid c!tizenshjp ! that for ,some months, have been in control of the ad
n:in:sirstion under cmerger;^ arrangement isa satisfactory "demonstration
that $zr. l-rancisco is sti!l r keen for putting her scandalously, untidy house,
in ordsr. ' - . . » .... c . __.
The Xew Yorkjjjobe recognizes that the vote for Taylor came
The fact that many of the old supporters of Schmitz, gave their votes
4,0r4 ,0r Mayor -Tajfibr in £he San Francisco election, that, even in strong labor
anion districts th« labor union candidate did not. gain votes enough to bring*
h>ni up ticar*'Pr, Taylor, is indication that' the regeneration of San Francisco
Uii thtr. surface veneer. And the successful run of. the reform
<'i*;rki # attorney. Langdon, whose vote will stand next to that of Mayor
Taj-Jor.'cnpha^i-es the notice that it is a bad day for the rascals.
Coming west we find trie Omaha Bee expressing very similar
sentiments: .'i
A\\ questions of politics aside, the election in San Francisco must bs
gratifj-ing to lovers of good government everywhere. The ticket named
r-rid supported by the citizens' committee organized to punish grafters and
f;et rid of the boodiers who had long dominated tbe-dty was elected by an
overwhelming majority. This is evidence that the/majority in San Francisco
i: for honest government and that the work, of municipal house cleaning will
be continued.
The Chicago Post sees it as a significant victory for the prin
ciples embodied in the graft prosecution:
San Frincisco has made a tremendous stride forward by defeating for
the first time in six years a so called labor ticket.made up of men who pre
tended to represent one class while they re&lly represented/ its bitterest
enemies. The next step must be the freeing of the whole state from the
grasp of Hrrin and his "respectable" machine. And the election of Langdon
blazes the most direct path toward the goal-
The Kansas City Journal sees in the election a victory for
the whole people and not for any single class:
San Francisco suffered greatly, in learning the lesson of
decency and the result argues the latent soundness of the great mass of the
people. It proves that/after all, the people have the power and tHe dis
position to take back. the government into their own hands. 7 -
The Sti Paul Pioneer Press finds in the result a significant
••ebuke to the republican organization that attempted to set party
the common weal :
In San Francisco the honest republicans wisely allied' themselves with j
honest democrats and good government men .in supporting for re-election |
Mayor Taylor and Prosecuting Attorney Langdon. The complete' deliverance j
cf the city from the rule of a corrupt oligarchy has been achieved in, spite j
of a debauched republican organization. True .republicans all over the nation <
will rejoice in the ignominious rout of the renegades who. had stolen the
party livery.
Testimony of this kind could be multiplied indefinitely. There j
is scarcely a newspaper on the American continent that has riot i
had some word of congratulation for the redemption of San Fran* j
cisco. The was an advertisement whose /value"^ is '/great
beyond appraisement.
' "LACK OF DIGNITY," SAYS GERBER

j\ Mr; /U^.y-^;- Gerber, : financier, of Sacramento, who knows

PROFESSOR FRANCIS J/BtAIR, the state superintendent of
schools for Illinois/ declares that couhship; and. marriage: should
be : taught in the public schools. / Professor Blair ; would instruct
ducks how to swim/ Kissing comes , by nature and %oes by
favor, but Mr/Blair would- make it "part; of /a schoolboy's task.' It is
like this, says the professor :
I believe, and v believe^ it; thoroughly, that courtship and* marriage should
be made subjects of instruction in' our ; Illinois schools, just; as' much* as your
spelling and. arithmetic./ Why do we spend; years and' milliony,with "our chil
dreninstructing them* in i theoretical' studies-^indj turn. away^eritirelyj from the
things that are. closest'ito the, life; thir child -will; live' after '\u25a0{ schooldays? /
" I have seen this done i iri'ycountryj schools.' It can ; be idone,l feasibly and
beautifully, I; have seen children taking^the parts of 'PrisciUa; 1 " Miles* Standish
apd John Alden and going thrpiigh; the courtship without a trace of embar
rassment or laughter. ' \u25a0..'\u25a0"' 'f /;*"
Gourtship;in Illinois would becorrie a very solemn affair* and
marriage : a ceremony scarcely to be distinguished from -a funeral.'
Nothing less lugubrious than a Puritan wooing would ; be tolerated;
Love making \ after the ; manner- of the "best sellers" would ; be against
the' rulesT \u25a0'. Suggestions -from the French drama could not be per

cross between a pink tea' and -a/ funeral would suit the Illinois

before the appointed -time? They I will find out-soon' enough' that
marriage is; a .serious business, but that is Ino reason why courtship

Relates interesting circumstances connected
with writing of playlet for charity social

Play tO Be Given I^ l t he big charity entertainment at th«
Chtttes next month. Her friends expect the playlet will be tociethin? uaiqne
in plot and -treatment, sparkling with epigrams and bons siots. When Miss
Ethyl Hagef. was quite a little girl her clever sayings bsed to be quoted by her
mother's friends-at Del Monte and the Balace hotel, and they predicted ths
little girl would amount to something in the literary world tome day. A few
years ago, when Miss Ethyl was grown up and "out" in society, she had the
peri and ink fever quite seriously, and I heard then that she was at work on the
diary of V society girl, it was never published. Meantiiae »he distia
guished herself as the giver of original entertaimsenti, as^aa aatorsciHle en
thusiast and as a skirt dancer at. society vaaderille affiiri Her appearance
therefore in the newer role of a playwright is arclusbg natch isteresr.

California Girl '.-/San Francisco women noti«e tht &a=a« eigned
to the sketches of modish gowns and hats and, know that the 4esiga« is a San
Francisco girl? " MisJTßlanche Letcher, who delineates these beasiilsl fasHon
plates, is a graduate of the San Francisco schools and was a sttudest at the
Hopkins institute. She was one of the founders of the Sketch dsb, cf which
she is still a member. She was enjoying herself in the usual tazz&ts of girls
at dances and balls when one of her friends saw a little sketch *h-e had
penciled^: an odd moment- The friend saw ulent written aH orer the
drawing arid suggested that Miss Letcher. give up sodety and gob for art.
The suggestion bore fruit, and in a few years the^ young girl had made such
strides iri:her art that she found herself on the" staff oi a morning paper.
A few. months later she was in New York, still studying and working hard.
About' three-years ago she went to Europe, where -she kept studying and
improving./ Since her return she has established a studio in Oakland. I
believe, but most of her work goes to the' eastern magazines./

terfeit of a silver one. Miss Comstock was one of the many bright girls who
used to do features for The Call's Sunday supplement. But New-York
beckoned "with alluring ringers and she went east. She" has had ver^ good
luck with the magazines. In the last number of the Designer 1 saw a clever
story by Miss Comstock, the diary of a fat girl.
