IRISH ON ASIATIC IMMIGRATION
IT i< hastily to be believed that the state fruit growers'. convention,
in session at Marysville, realized the full meaning of the memorial
to congress on the matter of immigration which John P. Irish
persuaded it to adopt. Indeed, the delegates rnjght well be for
given for failure to follow the wandering, twisted and obscure argu
ment carried in the memorial. For instance:
We reject the theory of assimilation, holding that when nonassimilating
labor engages in this rtoncompetitive work it relieves us of the strain upon
our racial and national standards, which strain threatens the subversion of
those standards in the task of assimilating the_jnillions of European immi
grants. : vjS'V-'"
We cannot pretend to say what all this means, but as nearly
as can be guessed it exalts or prefers a servile labor above Ameri
can citizenship. Let us admit, for a moment, that the immigration
from southern Europe does not always bring us desirable 'citizens.
This is not true as far as the experience/of California goes, because
a. very considerable element of our best citizenship comes from that
region, but supposing for the sake of argument that Mr, Irish i is
slating facts, that might be reason for limiting such immigration.
It is certainly no argument for the admission of a form of slave
labor or peonage. What Mr. Irish wants is a return to the feudal
system where a few great barons held vast domains worked by i
an army of serfs. \u25a0 . • '
Mr. Irish dwells upon the economic argument. We don't care
a button for the economic aspect of the matter, although it might
easily be turned against him. The case against Asiatic fimmigra-i
tion rests on the objection to servile labor and the creation of a
more dangerous race issue than that with wliich another form of
slavery has already saddled this country.
To what extent is Mr. Irish interested in fruit growing? Does
he appear at Marysville in that interest or as a representative of
the Pacific Mail steamship company? We. have seen him making
himself useful in^the latter capacity 6n more than one occasion,
but he did not brag of it.
SUBWAYS FOR SAN FRANCISCO
T;HE subway and elevated road project* mooted by Supervisor
Sullivan and Isidoj Jacobs 'is interesting and inspiring as a
vision, but it has prophetic rather than immediate value. The
congestion of urban travel in San Francisco is not yet so
great that it cannot be, adequately handled by the surface roads if
these are competently equipped and served. We hope that the ex
isting incompetent management of the United Railroads will not
become a permanent feature of that enterprise.
Indeed, the plans proposed for subways have all the appearance
of haste. We do not believe, for instance, that a subway for Market
and Valencia streets extending from the ferry house to Twenty
ninth street can be built for $1,000,006? or for several times that
sum. For one thing, the road would be laid in water all the way.
'.Water stands under Market street at about the fifteen foot level, ex
cept near the fern-, where it is closer to the surface. Much of the
land under these two streets is "made ground." Market street -is
flanked by towering buildings whose foundations must be guarded
and not imperiled by adjoining excavations. All these conditions
help to increase the cost. In lower Market street, especially, the
problem of excluding the tide, water would be exceedingly expen
sive. We believe that an estimate of $1,000,000 a mile would be
moderate fora road built under such conditions. The estimate sub
mitted by Messrs. Sullivan and Jacobs is $1,000,000 for two arid a
' half miles. •
... These things are not said in the way of discouragement. The
time will come, perhaps sooner than we expect, when a subway
system must be constructed, but we doubt very much whether the
municipality will want to build it. The city has its hands full for
the present and the question of water supply will shortly become
pressing. The municipal res6urces are limited. . San Francisco's
money is all demanded for the necessaries of municipal life
UNCLE SAM'S MANY DILEMMAS ~
UXCLE SAM, good old soul, is getting it hot and heavy;
from the preachers. They declare that' he is many kinds of a
Sabbath breaker. He lets his soldiers and: his sailors play ball
on Sunday ;-, and listen to the Rev. Frederick J. Stanley, general
secretary of the American Sabbath union, who said the other day
in Chicago: , §
While you are at church on Sunday the postoffice employes are at
work counting out the mail. You think it necessary that the mail carrier
must collect four times on Sunday, so that yonr letter can catch the fast
trains.
\u25a0'- The United States government sells money orders on Sunday, yet it
has made Jaivs that yoti, Mr. Banker, cannot draw a check- or draft on
Sunday, as'it'will not be legaL
It may have been that the- congregation left the church in
a somewhat confused state of mind, for the Rev. John Balcom Shaw,
a Presbyterian, minister, remarked after Dr. Stanley had concluded:
I touted Egypt with 32 preachers, and was astounded that. they should
desire to go sight seeing or pack trunks all day; Sunday. M* spoke to one of
them about it, and he said that commandment was abrogable. ' : •
Where doctors of "divinity disagree The Call may not pretend i
to decide. But the Philadelphia-ministers do not appear to agree
as to the abrogability of the commandment. Witness:
Inasmuch as it has become notorious that Sunday, November 17 wit- '\u25a0
nessed a flagrant infringement -of the; Sunday laws 'of the "commonwealth \
of Pennsylvania,, with 1 the full knowledge-. and consent of the officers ' in i
charge of the naval station at League island, by a public' dance and prdni- i
enade of a great mass of people, probably' estimated at 40.000. on the d«clre I

I Resolved, That we," the. Presbyterian; ministers' ( of ' Phila
delphia, desire to call the attention 7 of you, Hoik Theodore Roosevelt, to'
these facts, and to -beseech you earnestly that you use both yoiir^ official,
and your personal' influence to maintain the said; laws of this comrnohwealth
on the part .of these and all other federal officers .and men within the bounds,
of our beloved state.. j : :\u25a0 ; ;.:,.:" - ; -l'"
Recently/ a minister in- Washington,- D. C.," characterized the
officers of the navy as "irreligious men." Chiefly 011 the. ground' that
they encourage the enlisted men to , play ball on Sunday. The naval'
officers resent the charge bitterly' and; insist that many of them are
good church members, but ships' crews; cannot be ken/ up if the men
are not permitted to play ball on the Sabbath! Indeed, they add
that, the men might be doing worse, and V ball game keeps them out
of temptation.. Thus we find that our dear old. Uncle Sam has his
work cut out to please everybody.
MR. . HARRIMAN has his finger on the industrial pulse of the
r country. He knows what stuff is moving? He knows what
there is to be moved. He is the link between markets and
the producer, and he tells us that current industrial condi
tions are too solidly founded to permit a long continued depression.
His words are encouraging because he speaks- from knowledge- •
"Underneath the whole situation," says Mr. Harriman, "there
is industrial stability. There is too much workSto:be done and too
great a capacity for doing it; to allow a long; drawn iput depression'
The country is too big and the people too sensible^ allow the acts
of a few men- to shake their faith in- the integrity; of our great
financiers and businessmen as a whole. % The dawn of a new era of
prosperity is. here. The overstrain on each is being "relieved and
credit is once more being allowed to perform its normal work."
We congratulate Mr. Harriman on his return to confidence
and a more happy state of mind:- It was whispered -not long ago
that he saw . a hard winter ahead [oi him .'and had of dered all new
work stopped with wholesale 'discharges of workmen, tater it was
learned that Mr. Harriman had reconsidered His future and wanted
all the men he .could. "hire for building- and improving- railroads. His
condition 'is once more .normal, his feet are "again^warmand in his
present 'frame of niinclf he is a very agreeable person. The- Call

THE INSIDER
Relates interesting anecdotes concerning the
eccentricities of Galve, the great prima
don na,who shows herself to be truly feminine
*--r — ; — r. :
»,W *~ '„ rr- j TV TONE of the great prima donnas is more
'Why Calve Turned f .\u25a0\u25a0 \l • essentially feminine in her ways than
Back tO Audience •»\u25a0. * Calve, thoagh she does not, like Gadski,
go in for knitting and sewing, nor, like; Schumann-Hink, for household
duties In "Carmen" you remember how she played one scene. aS around
a powder puff, another time making a fan the motif of her coquetries. One
of the newest stories about the eccentric Calve tells how at one of her
concerts she had 'raised her audience to a high point of exaltation and
when she had sung her last number/they called clamorously for an encore.
Being in unusually good humor, she nodded to .the accompanist and he
began' the opening bars of a tender little* song. # There ww a large mirror
at the. back of the stage, and before Calve uttered the first^note of the
song she turned her shapely back to the audience. The surprised auditors
wondered wb^t caprice of the prima donna they were going to witness,
but she calmed them all and made the women her friends at once by giving
her hat a little adjustment and then turning to them again and beginning
her song* There is nothing that makes the world of women so akin as the
simple query, "Is my hat on straight?" and perhaps Calve knew it.
_ --V;. --'i , Looking at Calve when she fs acting one of
Queen Victoria her great parts nobody would fancy that
Liked Prima Donna she did not wish to go upon the stage, but
wanted -to become a nun. It was a kind fate, masquerading as a hard
hearted mamma, that made a grand opera star of the would be nun. Calve
Studied under M. Puget before she went to Marches:.* Though It is popu
larly "supposed that Calve has had more heart affairs than any other prima
donna, her reputation in that respect did not affect the late Queen Victoria's
fondness for her. Calve explained that fondness as "I suppose it is because
I do not know the prince of Wales." It was the queen who asked Tosti, the
composer;* if he did not think Calve would make an ideal Marguerite. "Un
peu trop 'd'embonpoint por cc role," objected TostL '
Victoria rather resented the slur on weight, for she was not thin her
self. VMais cela n'empeche pas le sentiment," she retorted.
/-. \u25a0•. .. -\u25a0 .-. fl Calve 13 the most determined woman In
Goes to the Falls . r . \u25a0 . • . , . ,
\u25a0.•\u25a0 _ . . her \u25a0 profession, and her managers are kept
and Lost in WOOdS i n a constant state of nervous worry^ in
consequence of her vagaries." I am told that when the concert company
was in Buffalo last year. nothing would satisfy Calve but a trip to Niagara
falls. The manager remons^ated. He was afraid that the concert would
not take- place if Calve went on any side^ trips, feven though the falls were
but 20 . miles away. Apparently Calve gave ir£ but the next thing the
manager heard was that the singer and her maid had shipped off on the
early afternoon train and would not return until dinner time. The concert
was to be given the next night and all seats were sold.
The day and night wore on and no Calve, so when morning broke of?*^
went the manager to Niagara. He searched everywhere for the recreant
star,; who, he discovered, had 'left the hotel at sunrise and paid her bill,
also taking her baggage. Returning to Buffalo, Calve was still missing,
and »the manager's only resource was ..to byre detectives in bunches and
send them around the country in a. vain hope that Calve might be found.
Finally the singer' was located, about sevens miles from the falls, in the
heart of a forest, where she and her faithful maid were playing babes in
the woods. Calve managed to placate her^mahager, however, and sang that
night at her concert.
