FA TEX pound turkey for a ten full or better." It is a cryptic
l\ and mysterious announcement that sounds a holiday
jT"\ chuckle of meat and drink and Thanksgiving. We take our
pleasures easily and our tnpubles lightly. We bid the;
stranger welcome to our pile of bricks? and call it a day 6ft* for
Thanksgiving. Free and easy city, if you please, but consider what
vre have gone through with a stout heart in less than two years.
In spite of it all San Francisco still wears a smile.
The light breaks.- There is, for example, Schmitz in jail and
Taylor seated in the seat of the jpighty. The "voice of Francis J.
Heney is heard above the" roar of the elements. Not earthquake nor
storm and stress can obscure that trumpet blast. An earthquake,
a $500,000,000 fire, the plunder of \ the city, the turmoil and the
hatreds born of justice for the grafters and a money panic in the
midst of plenty have not dimmed the gayety of a resolute town. It
is the same old San Francisco, "serene, indifferent to fate,", as our
own poet wrote, and still the city stands holding imperial position
by the Golden Gate, "the warder of two continents."
Proud of her? Of course we are. With a new city and a new
kind of money crackling in our pockets" and ten pound turkeys
waiting on the call of the slot we arc fixed to bid defiance to the
elements and the rogues and the envious. We have seen the worst
and come through it all with a high heart. 9ln the east— the old
f;i.-i*ioned, sober sided cast — they are pointing now t6 San Francisco
as? the model city. Boston talks of taking lessons. Too much
Xo, -we shall not set up for the model. Rather for us the atti
tude of the publican than the pharisee. If we have sinned deeply
we have suffered sorely, but we have come through redeemed,
regenerated and disenthralled. It is the indomitable spirit of a peo
ple who never know when they are beaten. Let us give thanks.
MR. HEXEY — initials are superfluous— takes his pigs— his
parliamentary pigs, be it understood— to the right market
when he addresses the young men of a college town. It is
well to rouse the generous enthusiasm of youth in a good
cause and these young fellows will be leaders in California by and
by, leaders in thought and leaders in action.
Much has been accomplished for civic regeneration by the work
with which Mr. Heney has been identified, but, as he took occasion
to point out in Berkeley, there is much that still remains- to be done.
"The fight for freedom in this state,". said Mr. Heney, "has. just
commenced." California hasvput her hand to the plow and will not
turnb ack. This is the keynote struck by Mr. Heney:
In ban hrancisco we have only fought a preliminary skirmish; we won
that, and now we propo«e to crowd the foe. The railroad thinks that it can
go on in the way it has been going these many, many years, debauching the
young man in this «tate who goes into public life, rendering'it impossible
for him to make any headway unless he first makes it understood that hi*
?ole purpose in life is to serve the railroad. Xow we propose to get into
the big political, machine the corporation ha* built up for itself here in Cali
fornia and break a few costs in- the wheels. If we can do that maybe we
can bring the juggernaut to a standstill.
The impetus gained by the successful fight for civic decency in
San Francisco will gather accelerated force and volume in the state.
It is a going and a growing concern with all the advantages of an
aggressive strategy and an inspiring cause.
We hail Mr. Heney in the role of Lord High Executioner and
may his snickersnee never grow dull. There is a live dog to beat as
well as a dead one to kick. The Lincoln-Roosevelt league will sup
ply the means. t

MR. BRYAN, grows facetious, but, like the fabled Scotchman,
he jokes "wi* deeficulty." His pleasant humor for the mo
ment plays with the indurated hide of Hie democratic
donkey, patient beast of burden, that how suffers, the last
indignity, butchered to make a joke for Mr. Bryan. Tis a beast of
the common people, quotha, and no aristocrat, because every aristo
crat is at heart a villain. .
But Mr. Bryan's antic humor suffered embarrassing discourage
ment when Senator Daniel applied the wet blanket. .The senator
from Virginia was free to say that Bryan was, in sooth, no demo
crat at all, but merely^a follower of^Hearst, who took his opinions
from the Independence league. "It is time," said Senator Daniel
"that you quit taking your cue from the Independence league -'and'
deferred a little to the democratic party." To that advice Mr. Bryan
could find no reply. «' -
Xcithcr was the hilarity oL the occasion promoted by former
Senator William M. Stewart of Nevada, who remarked of Bryan"
P:nd of mine? Xo. that faker is no. friend of mine. I never put"
noncy on a twice beaten horse." ;
"Faker!" Pho; 'tis an odious name! But really it expresses
single word all that Colonel Henry AVattcrson would put^ in a
mi- and a half of hot Bourbon about Mr; Bryant Neither
Stewart nor Daniel nor Watterson sat 3own .to meat with^Mr
Bryan and the list of "among those absent^ would ' include ; a roli
call of nearly every leader of importance an- the democratic party It
is ."that. Bryan feeling" which recently found this* disgusted ex
pression: > ,
Mr. Bryan's announcement that he will not seek but is ready to acceot
another nomination for the presidency will arouse almost every conceivable
emotion— except enthusiasm. This is' one'^ great' trouble with* him :He has
gone stale. Everything that he can say' he has;alreidy;s»id'a thouiand times.
It is impossible to quicken interest in" him. : He.has tired people out. "The
general feeling, if he should run again for the' presidency, '. would be; like that
of the returned English officer in the" story, who,' when he. was asked, to" go
and see the House of Commons, inquired:, "ls that thing going, on yet?"
Mr. Bryan cannot carry the donkey' and it seems as if the
donkey did not want to carry Mr. Brvan. i-^l
THE head of the Southern Pacific detective' bureau says he
expects an unusually large influx of tramps" -and hoboes -this
winter. No train crosses the mountains coming this way that
does not carry its load of tramps stealing rides. Year by
year the Iramp problem becomes /more insistent here, because of
the mild winter climate. the southern part of the state , large
and organized camps of hoboes are established every winter at
sheltered spots among the willow thickets that fringe old river;
beds and water courses. Grown bold by numbers, they some
times become a- positive danger to the neighborhoods they infest.
The spread of vagrancy and its attendant evils were - the ; sub
ject of discussion at a recent conference on and correc
tions in Albany,* X. V., and from the . testimony there given it
appears that the chief promoter of .the tramp habit is the tolera
tiph'accorded by railroadmen to the. practice of stealing rides. Of
course, the railroads make;: rules against the practice, but train
crews are prone to .consider it none of their business to police; the
cars. . There may be something to be said "for that 'view,-' but the
results are unfortunate for California, which thus ; becomes the
tramps' favorite winter resort. Most of these men are petty crimi
nals, sneak thieves and* the like, and some^of them are highway
men. When the weather grows cold and money is short they.; fill
up the jails for shelter. On a winter night in this city they crowd
the prison until they are packed like s"ardines in a box. . ;
Every last one of these hoboes = ought to be rounded up and
put 'to work. At large they are dangerous, partly because of : their
thieVish habits and partly" because of the numerous incendiary
fires, that they ; set. . The Gontinental fire insurance company of ; New
York ; has kept statistics of all fires in the United States for several
years, . arid the figures ; show that 3 per cent of ali, fires '\u25a0 are caused
by -tramps. In California probably "the percentage is; higher. "
The one ; thing that these .vagrants fear and hate} is compulsory.

IN New York, these days, associate*
of William R.^ Hearst amuse them
selves by pointing an accusing
finger at him and saying. "That's
him." This Is because of an Incident
that took place at- the hearing which
resulted In. Hearst being held to appear
before the grand jury to answer to the
charge of having criminally libeled
Wiillam Astor Chanler. It was nothing
less, according to the story told.by the
Telegraph, than the identification of
Hearst a3 the man who had visited
Raymond Hitchcock at his country
place and "spooned" with young girls.
In one of its stories regarding the
trouble In which Hitchcoc* finds him
self, the Journal said that William
Astor Chanler was in the habit of call
ing at Hitchcock's house and meeting
young girls. Two Swedish servant
girls appeared as witnesses for Hearst
and testified to the truth of his story,
except for the important fact that they
couldn't point out Chanler. who sat in
the courtroom. Both of them broke
down under cross examination, and on».
of them, Esther, nearly broke up th-o
proceedings by Ignoring Chanler and
pointing out Hearst.
• The story of the blunder was writ
ton for the Telegraph by Karl Decker,
formerly a Hearst writer. He wields a
fluent and caustic pen and delights In
poking fun at his former employer. His
account of the affair opens as follows:
"William Randolph Hearst blushed a
deep, rosy red yesterday and. wanted to
kick a lung ont of the man who had
charge of the witnesses for the defense
in the criminal prosecution of Hearst
on a charge of criminal libel brought
by .William Astor Chanler.

dles of ths Presidio club last night
was one of the most brilliant af
fairs that has ever taken place at
the post. Outside of the service. the list
of guests numbered nearly 150, making
the largest dance given by the Presidio
club this season. The hall and the
adjoining rooms had been elaborately
decorated for this occasion with masse.*
of evergreen, geraniums and red ber
ries. Red was the prevailing note, arid
the effect of the flags and cut blossoms
against the ropes of green was exqui
site. As always at army hops, the mu
sic was excellent, and from the first
dance at 9 o'clock until after midnight"
the enjoyment of the guests was with
out interruption. The gowns worn
were especially handsome, arid as all
the officers attended in full regalia the
ensemble was one that it would be dif
ficult "to eclipse \u25a0 for beauty -, and- bril

congratulations .and ' thanks that were

gan to arrive at about. B:3o o'clock and
were met by. a receiving party of gra

Esther then stopped in front of a group
