ARMY AND NAVY LOBBYING
HON\ JOXAH KULIO KALANIAXAOLE has incurred
the wrath of the navy department. Captain M. B. Stewart
has got himself disliked by the war department, and both
of these offenders are held guilty of indiscretion which they
\u25a0 imagined was the better part of valor. To put it bluntly,; one , is
accused of lobbying and the other of a betrayal of lobbying.
The Hawaiian gentleman, being a delegate to congress, was
; requested by the general navy board to work up a sentiment with
the chambers of commerce in Honolulu and San Francisco in favor
of fortifying Pearl harbor in order that congress might feel
\u25a0 impressed by the apparently imperative and spontaneous public
demand. The Hon. Jonah, etc., was not to appear in the matter
";. anywhere and was asked to treat the communication as strictly
*. confidential. But Jonah had no idea of effacing himself in that
manner. Straightway on receipt of the letter from the navy board
he took it to all the newspapers to show how great a man he had
become in the national councils. The result may be that congress
will refuse the appropriation \on the ground that the navy .board
has been caught lobbying and pulling wires. There are some fine
old crusted bureaucrats in Washington who wish that the newest
7 Jonah had found his* fit berth in the belly of a whale and
stayed there. * £'
The case of Captain Stewart is somewhat different:. He was
an instructor at Wesfe Point and he wrote a letter to a New York
newspaper in criticism of the army pay bill which the war depart
ment is pushing through congress. He thought the bill did not
provide a sufficient increase of pay for the infantry and he added:'
The possible defeat of the. measure is a bugaboo with which the infantry
has no concern and which is to be accounted for only on the supposition
that overconcentration and apprehensiveness oh the part of its adherents
ftave caused a mild hysteria. - .
That does not sound very bad, but it set the whole war depart
ment buzzing like a hive of angry bees. It was a gross breach
of discipline and Captain Stewart must be punished by exile in the
• Philippines, which are thus constituted a sort of military penal Tet
ilement. The order of the acting secretary of war in the matter
is a very curious document. It reads:
The acting secretary considered the remarks in the letter such a serious
breach of discipline that he directed that the matter be inquired into and when
he ascertained that Captain Stewart was on duty at the military academy
and in pait charged with the discipline of the cadets, he directed that he
• be relieved ami sent to his regiment as being utterly unfit for such duty, as
the acknowledged author of such criticisms of his superiors. Captain
: Stewart asked for a court of inquiry, but this was denied, as he had acknowl
• edged the authorship of the letter and there was nothing for the court of in
quiry to investigate. The attempt to make it appear that this officer was dis
ciplined because he took op the question of the pay of the infantry and'- was
therefor is entirely incorrect. The whole action in the case was
-•taken by the acting secretary because in his opinion it was a most flagrant
" case of serious breach of discipline.
If one may construct the bureaucratic creed from these parallel
'1 episodes it might be that lobbying is sinful and punishable .by
exile when done openly, but if the wires are pulled /behind the
scenes it is all right.
ONE GREAT OPTIMIST CLUB
WHY not an optimist club? Chicago bids us be of good cheer.
Smile and pass the smile along. The corn bins are full;
the wine barrels are brimming over and the great American
bird is ready for the table— not the pantaletted eagle, strut
ting on a profane coin, but the white meat and the dark meat that
mates with the red blood of the cranberry. Thanksgiving is upon j
us, and what more fitting time to found an optimist club? The gov
ernor of Illinois bids us take heart of grace; Chicago is the mother
of trust.
It is a land of sunshine— this our California. Consider yes
terday in San Francisco. The air was like wine, with just suffi
cient tang to send the blood tingling through the veins. A walk
on the heights overlooking the shining waters of the bay was cure
for the blues. This is the town for an optimist club, where we
never say die. - /
It is the chosen home of the phenix bird, fabled in song. and
etory. We see the old town and the new • town rising from her
ashes, like an exhalation of the morning working on a union card,
or words to that effect. i
v It is always fair weather when good fellows get together. The
stein is on the table; the Thanksgiving feast is prepared, with dear
old San Francisco bating no jot of heart or hope and organized as'
one great optimist club. We nominate Mr. Rufus Jennings for the
first president. Here's your health, Mr. Jennings.
And he sang every night as he went to bed::
"Let us be happy down here below;
The living should live, tho' the dead be dead,"
Said the jolly old pedagogue long ago.
WHY THEY ABUSE ROOSEVELT
THE anvil chorus; grows in volume day by day. Rooseyeft
did it, roars Mr. Pierpont Morgan. Harriman' speaks, by the
1 voice of Schwerin. Roosevelt is driving the American /flag
from the seas. In;, the plutocratic clubs the. president is
unpopular. The beefy and well corned citizen member of these
gilt edged social bodies applauds while the after dinner orator flays
.Roosevt/t as the author of all our woes.' Is money: tight? * fTwas
Roosevelt did it Does \u25a0 a scattering bank fail ? Why, Roosevelt
pulled out the props. So does the chorus run.
Even within his own official family! the president appears to
Jack friends. All-sorts of delphic and mysterious utterances have
EDITORIAL PAGE
come from official sources in the past week relative ; to an, order
or request made by the president designed '\u25a0 to; stop the ' pernicious
activity of subordinate federal officials seeking election /as dele
gates in favor of a third term. /The -mystery made to surround
this order by. bureau chiefs can have no other, purpose thanto dis
credit Roosevelt and impugn his good \u25a0'faith7"7; : : . \u0084
It is not, on the whole, a very prosperous conspiracy. The
people understand the motive and appreciate the- source. No man
who has been active in the pursuit of wrong doers can hope to
escape calumny. When you hear a man getting red in the face
abusing Roosevelt it is fair to ask, What crime has, he committed
or what affiliation does he hold with" criminals whom; the president
has sought to bring to justice? Let us not forget that these ''cer
tain malefactors of great, wealth" never cease the effort to create
a'public opinion favorable to themselves, or, what is the same thing,
an op i« ion hostile to the prosecution.
MR. HARRIMAN has set on foot an enterprise of the high
est interest; to this state in the railroad he is building into
. Lower California. Two years ago he was granted a^ con
cession for a road extending the whole length of the penin
sula, and it is announced now that he has completed the first 36
miles from a connection with the * Southern Pacific in Arizona.
That is but a' very short section of the line, which is intended to
run the whole length of the peninsula and has been surveyed for.
I^soo rriiles. It is understood that when Harriman has completed
the road he is building southward along the Mexican Pacific coast
he will turn his attention more "actively to the peninsular line.
The mineral wealth of Lower California is believed to be
greater than that of any other part of Mexico, but owing to the
isolated and hitherto inaccessible character of the country it has
scarcely been touched. Yet the Rothschilds operated copper /mines
at Santa. Rosalia, employing 5,000 men. The new road will touch
at Magdalena bay, which is destined to become one of. the, great
and important harbors of >the worfd. There is, no safer or more
commodious haven for shipping anywhere. Its calm and spacious
reaches are a favorite practice . ground for gunnery by the United
States navy, and the Mexican government has leased us a coaling
station there, as a half way house between San Diego Vand> the
Panama canal zone. > • i
All this great country, capable of .supporting, a vast mining
and fishingipopulatioh, will' be tributary, for most of its supplies to
Alta. California _and f doubtless -it will chiefly be developed by en
terprise and capital local to this state; , . *

Editorial Comment of Eastern Newspapers on
the Result of the Election in 'San Francisco
The; most influential newspapers erf the. east are still. finding many good
things to say about: San Francisco's redemption. Following are excerpt 3
from editorials devoted to the interesting subject of good government in
the metropolis of the Pacific coast:.
PRISOX CELL POLITICS
Flags, may be waved all 6ver the land
for the re-election of Mayor Taylor in
San. Francisco, which means the contin
ued disgrace and defeat of the unspeak
able Schmitz who is permitted to guide
politics from his prison cell, and also
of at least a part of the bad gangs still
at liberty in that city.— Boston Herald.
STOOD FOR CLEAXL.IXESS
San stood for cleanliness
and went far- toward atonement for
past disgrace. 'The beat thing that
could have happened, not only to the
community but to organized labor, was
the defeat of the. San Francisco labor
ticket. Had It won, that victory would
have signaled "the doom of the city. —
Philadelphia North American.
SIGNAL SUCCESS
The most gratifying result of all was
the signal success of the antlgrafters
or. .good government ticket 'in- San
Francisco, which gives assurance of a
continuance of the good work that has
been done In behalf of municipal clean
liness and good order .since the over
throw of the boodle machine and the
convrction and punishment of the
grafters.— San Antonio Express.
REDEEMS HERSELF
With the election of Dr. Taylor and
the consequent, assurance that the poli
cies for which he stands will be main
tained. . San Francisco has redeemed
herself from the charges under which
she stood and has made a long step
forward toward the bright era of en
larged prosperity awaiting her. The
capi*al needed for her physical -re
habilitation will now be . forthcoming
as otherwise it would not. — Philadel
phia Inquirer. ;

! SWEEPING TRIUMPH
\A. great and sweeping triumph for
good government was won in San Fran
cisco, where the independent voters
united with the best elements in the
two great parties to beat the nominee
of the Schmltz-tainted labor party, so
called. The reform, movement . which
has gone far toward cleansing the chief
<*Ity:of the-Pacific coast will be carried
forward without* check and given in
creased • impetus *by the emphatic 'vic
tory won Tuesday at the polls.; — Cleve-
• •!«\u25a0>
CURIOUS INCIDENTS
There were .some curious incidents
in the last days of the campaign.
George A. Knight, the shining republi
can legal light of California who had
seconded the nomination of President
Roosevelt at Chicago," took the stump
to urge the. defeat of Mayor- Taylor
and District Attorney." Langdon as a
compliment to President Roose\yelt Mr.
Hearst's newspaper, the Examiner, was
found attacking reform and supporting
Ryan, the republican' whom so many
republicans had repudiated. — New York
World. -

NOT TALKING. CANT
Dr. Taylor, the lawyer who has been
elected triumphantly ."mayor of San
Francisco, though he is a poet, and a
good one at that," made a great hit on
the stump. His speeches were all short
and to the point, and even the gamblers
and others of whom he had been an
active enemy from the time he was ap
pointed temporarily to office owned to
having a sort ofjsneaklng 1 admiration
for the man. If was recognized that he
was not talking the cant of the popular
idoFwhen he said last Thursday, after
a great reception: "It is not for me that
you are cheering, in this way, but for
your cityand for good government. : I
hope that you realize that I represent
both."— New York Evening Sun.

VICTORY FOR REFORM
The results of this municipal cam
paign should be gladly recerved by the
people riot onl* of San Francisco but
also of the entire state. The victory
for reform and the prosecution of the
gVafters will. have a good effect upon
the business of the state. Businessmen

financial situation, than the election of
the reform ticket. — Lodl Santinel.
RESULT FITLL OF PROMISE
Dr. Taylor, who was appointed
mayor. of San Francisco to fill out th<»
term of the unspeakable Schmitz. has
been elected mayor for a term of his
own by a large majority. Langdon.
the district attorney who has been the
official head of the bribery trials con
ducted by Francis J. Heney, is, re
elected by an even larger majority.
• • '.The Joint/result is full of promise
for the upbuilding o.f a city which has
been more sorely stricken morally even
than It" was physically by the earth
quake and the fire. San Francisco la
on the upward path. Its rebuilding
will be accelerated by the action of its
people at the poll 3. — Brooklyn Eag'.e.
.NEEDED POLITICAL EARTHQUAKE
The best result of any of the Tues
day elections was the triumph of the
good government party in San Fran
cisco. 'The! report says that tt was a
landslide. : for the antigraft leaders,
and honesty won the day.
If ever a city needed a political
earthquake. It was San Francisco. .Its
municipal 'government was a disgrace
and a reproach, but the people havf»
vindicated -themselves. It is a hopeful
sign. The people "are always honest.
They sometimes suffer themselves to
be: hoodwinked by designing poli
ticians, but when once convinced that
any regime is corrupt, they are not
slow to apply the remedy. — Richmond
Times-Dispatch,
"OXK RYAN-
Election results In ; San Francisco
were all -that the city's best cttienship
had hoped. Dr. E. R. Taylor, the pres
ent mayor, filling the uncompleted term
of Schmitz, was elected.^ His opponent
;was P. H. McCarthy, a union labor ex
! tremist. whose preachments savored cfj
anarchy, .who advocated violence as^^j
\u25a0who, before his nomination, had be»iw
among the most active spirits of tur
moil. McCarthy's campaign war di
rected by.Schmite from a prison cell,

city whose. people he had robbed and
whose fair fame he had dragged
the, mire. There -was a third

can, but neither before nor after the
counting of votes did he rise to a plane
of importance. — Philadelphia Ledger.
*'t A MAX OF COURAGE
: No election^result, in the country .will
cause 'more general satisfaction- thin
the success at the polls of Mayor Tay
lor of San Francisco. He is a man of
courage." force and Independence — Just
the man needed in the city's present
emergency. He. has done excellent worli
Inj the few months since his appoint
ment, and his election guarantees a
proper government of the city during
the process of its rebuilding. San
FranClsco is now sure of a real,
breathing spell. It Is free- from the
Ruefs and the. Schmitzes'for "a mayor's
whole term, and it Is also free from the
domination of a group of financiers in
politics whose activities have done
much to make the\unlon labor party
strong: for not. even in the heat of the
campaign did any- one accuse Mayor
Taylor of being under the
of either of the rival financial
terests, — New York Tribune, v,. ,
