ROOSEVELT'S DECLARATION JUSTICE BREWER of the supreme court owes the president an apology. In a public way he charged Roosevelt with "play ing hide and seek with the people and with the nomination. The only basis for the charge was the irresponsible gossip of politicians and newspapers, partly malicious and in part the idle speculation of idle people. Justice Brewer appears to believe thar it is Rooosevelts duty to issue denials every time Tom Jones of Smiths Corners makes himself responsible for a report that the presi dent is seeking a third term. Suppose the, president had adopted some such course— that would not have stilled the tongues of the malicious, among whom Justice Brewer appears sto5 to be included. President Roosevelt has now repeated, in the most emphatic manner, that he is not and will not be a candidate. Doubtless that declaration will not convince men like Justice Brewer, who do not wish to be convinced. That he will offer an apology for his unfounded charge is scarcely to be expected, but that would be the honest and manly course. Rooosevelt's declaration was expected. He could not honestly be a candidate after he had persuaded Taft to enter the field. and abandon his long cherished ambition to go on the supreme, bench. Men who believe in Roosevelt know that he is incapable of treachery. The declaration leaves the field open. We hear a great .deal about the "\vaning"-,of the Taft boom, but are free to suspect' that much of this talk i^inspired by a wish that is- father to the thought. It is true that the division in Ohio may injure Taft, just as a division in Xew York may. hurt Hughes. The hopes of the progressive ele ments in the republican party center on these two men. Neither is a politician in the accepted sense, and it is evident that the effort to create division in their home states is inspired by hostile political motives. We may be certain that every art known to the politician will be used to defeat both Hughes and Taft, and in this view it will be-"wise to concentrate tlie popular sentiment on either. \u25a0 It is far, too early \'et to decide whether Taft or. Hughes is likely, to prove the stronger, but the country would be safe in the hands of either. LITTLE COMFORT FOR CALHOUN MR. CALHOUX'S spokesman in New York, presumably hired for thi? job. did not get much comfort out of Attorney Langdon. Indeed, Wednesday night was not- a season' of cheer or thanksgiving for Mr. Calhoun's hired men anywhere. They had been chuckling over the. absence, of Gallagher and suggesting Honduras as his probable, place/ of resi dence. But the telegraph on Wednesday night brought news that Gallagher was on his way home to be a witness against 'Calhoun. Consequently there is not so much hilarity' on Mr. Calhoun's It is reasonable to infer that Mr. Calhoun sent an attorney to the Xew York meeting that District Attorney Langdon addressed. He hoped to be able to disconcert Langdon. by interruptions and impertinent questions. It was a trick of the sort that we have come to expect from the United Railroads management. But it did not avail.. Langdon gave back better than he got and left the intruder hopelessly discomfited. What other result might have been expected? The~man who makes himself the champion of graft and bribery need not expect the applause or support of decent people. He is likely, to get what Calhoun has champions, but few of them have the temerity to stand up in public to make his*, defense, and the inspiration of most of them comes from the breeches pocket. - -"/^^ Mr. Langdon may be congratulated on the satisfactory manner in which he disposed of Calhoun's interloper. As for the spies that" dog the district attorney's footsteps, they are part of the Homage that vice pays through the nose to virtue. These people hu,rt Cal houn worse than the prosecution. It .is a vile retinue of parasites. .To such poor devices has the grandson of John C. Calhoun sunk! TWO CRITICS OF CONSOLIDATION — — ; — . - \u25a0 \u25a0 - \u25a0 . :,:\u25a0.,, THE Berkeley. Independent offers this criticism of tlie pro posal to consolidate the bay cities; The San Francisco Call advance* as one of its pleas for con solidation the prospective ease with which" an adequate water system might be obtained when the cost would be diffused among a greater popula tion. It might be well for The Call to remember that the legislature enacted a special law at. the behest of former Mayor Phelan of San Francisco, pro^ viding for the joint acquisitipn of a water system by separate municipalities for their mutual interests and advantages.- So. the problem of acquiring a water supply presents no argument forconsolidation. ' • We thank' our contemporary for the reminder,, but vwe # do not regard the legislation mentioned as practicable. It will ' require a closer bond, of union than mere -proximity to carry out a great project of that' sort. Another and quite different class of criticism— different because the motives behind the plea are different— comes from the Oakland Tribune, which says : Of course it is well known here and should be understood abroad that Oakland is not promoting the greater San Francisco scheme,, even' though one of its ex-mayors is the nominal head, of the movement and a "member of its council is the chairman of its executive; committee. T?hese. gentlemen have been merely used adroitly as catspaws to pall some'one:"else's chestnuts out' of the 1 fire, and they represent personal opinions and interests, and .nothing more. The best argument for consolidation is Dargie and his kind— the kind that' ought to: be punished for grafting: These are. the EDITORIAL PAGE Moving -Day r >Wh6h^Tdady>''l^ckv6s^ Washington 1 \u25a0 I - -. .°" - * \u25a0"\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 \u25a0.•>•\u25a0\u25a0.\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0-:-\u25a0;\u25a0"\u25a0\u25a0:•\u25a0•.\u25a0''.-\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0<\u25a0\u25a0•' •;. -.;•.-.\u25a0' . ••.\u25a0.\u25a0\u25a0".- \u25a0 .-,\u25a0 ° \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 -• i men who make <taxes : high.

ECHOES^of the" Swarthrhore college decision .in : favor . of I the • sacred pigskin -continue to rumble, but \ye have not seen any thing quite ai funny. as ..this, from the Philadelphia Press: \ The manager^ 6f- Swarthmore college have reached the only"''con clusion possible, as all educators have seen from the beginning, upon the conditional bequest made, by the late Miss Jeanes, if this bequest involves a decision on the future, policy of, the institution for air time. ' ' The issue involved, in this legacy, given upon condition that the' college forego competitive football contests in the future, has never, been a choice between "football and $l;000,000"-—u* the bequest were this size. The -real question raised: was whether a college responsible' for -the education of its students should let any gift, large or small, decide its policy for air time to come:-'' . : : .: ...',. \ , \u0084.• ' . ' . : ; No college' could do this and keep its contract, express and implied, with its students.,' Any. institution which takes the tuition fee of a "student covenants to gives its-matriculates the best of education its means and equip-J ment permit while the student remains, under its care. Such an education varies with, the needs and standards of the day. It must vary with them. ; No college can bind all its future in on anyfundamentalquestion ; of policy. -\u0084:..-.' .; .-"•. -"• \u25a0\u25a0_"\u25a0, . -; ; '-."',.\u25a0"•\u25a0 :.^: .^ : >'. .\u25a0''';'..'/.' ' - ; ''/";-• The issue would have been exactly the same if the 'gift* had provided that Greek should always -be studiedby every- pupil or that no dead language should be studied by any. : Each ".of these ends might seem desirable to a: donor and both of them have been' urged as a part of the permanent policy of institutions. " , No, the issue would not have been the same .in the case of Greek or Latin or English. These all belong to education, but football does not. Indeed, there are certain old fashioned people who insist that as far as football-has any influence on the training of youth it is brutalizing. Yet we do. not insist on that view/ which may be no better than the doctrine of the mdllycoddles. foot- i ball is wholly nqnessential to education, a fifth wheel to the coach. It is . at best : a fad • that may be superseded any time by some other I and more attractive form of physical violence. It-is, indeed,, a very slight improvement on prize fighting. •\u25a0 ' • Let us suppose," by way" of "illustration, that the feminine mind; had i become; inspired , with an dverwhelmihg and j imperative desire for pink teas and all that they, imply, and suppose some philanthropic: testator had bequeathed'a warm: \u25a0\u25a0million--. to VassarVcoilege.on' condi tion that : no pink tea jj function be ever again permitted within those consecrated walls— in such case;" we ask, would the trustees be jus tified in 'refusing \ the: bequest \ on the ground that an impertinent and' usurping interference \vith ihe curriculum .was designed ? . Foot ball and pink teas bear about the same relation to a university course. - The; Swarthmore decision^ may be" wise, but Mr. Pecksniff does not make it so, and it is^ usejessto' attempt disguise of (the fact-that tlie^ai|re^n§J^ the; refusal is. that \the-tfustees';fearVd-ia\deciine'iri matriculation ;jf the. fashionable; game" were cut out.

J. Bartnett, % the fallen "Napoleon oF finance/' during his four yearsat the Uniyfrsity of California W. J: Bartnett Is , Berkeley Graduate days, is a graduate of the University of California and t^a selt made man with the": college brand. He was brought up on his father's ranch near Mar tinez and was the "jayest" kind of a farmer's boy when he eivtered the uni versity. He recognized his own deficiencies and in a short time there were none to notice except that he always scorned the college habit of dandyism. He made a decided mark at Berkeley as a student, and it was he who organized the committee on students' affairs which is still m existence.: He was given supervision of the Blue and Gold, which was never more successful than under his regime. His old fellow students point to his talent for organization in the college as an indication of his great head for such matters. He is still a young man, not more than 40 years of age. Mrs. Bartnett was a Mrs. Vaux, a charming woman who lived some years abroad studying art, and is the mother of a clever daughter, who wrote and published a novel before she was, 20. \u25a0 Walker's Home Not Convertible Asset country places in San Mateo. It lies along the electric line between Bur lingame and the town. I hear that Walker scarcely regards the place a* an asset, as he tried some time ago to borrow money on it, but without success. Mrs. Walker U3ed to give house parties at the San Mateo residence, and as she is very musical there were always musicians among. her guests. She is an amateur singer herself, a pupil of Miss Eleanor £onnell, Mrs. Colhs P. Huntingdon's protege. / "Carmen" Would Resurrect Calve were to be found, but 'from all I hear her craze for seances. has languished. During her first visit to fhis city, when she v put-up at the Otocker, at Pine and Leavenworth' streets, Charles Victor Miller used to call up the spirits for her. She knew the materialist in Paris, where he has many friends and where he spends part of his time when he is not in San Francisco, and at that time he lived just around the corner, in Bush street. Calve, by the way, has no dread of death. Though she does not, like the divine Sarah, carry her casket about with her, she has had her tomb designed to save her mother the trouble of selecting one, she explains. The main features of- this tombstone are two figures representing Calve as Carmen and Ophelia. I asked her once where she intended to place the tombstone. "Oh, it shall be in a quiet spot," she said, "but I feel sure that if an orchestra should come that way and play the seguidilla from 'Carmen* I'd jump right out- of my coffin and begin to laugh and sing." Woodruff Anna Gould's Fiance who created the role of the Imp in "When We Were Twenty-one," when Nat Goodwin and Maxine Elliott first produced the play. Woodruff is the actor who was beloved, by Anna Gould long before she met Count Boni de Castellane and it was said the actor and Jay Gould's sentimental daughter were betrothed. It was also said at the time that George Gould was much opposed to his sister's proposed marriage with an actor and that it wai dhe to his; opposition that the match was broken off. But both George and Howard Gould 'took their wives from : the st«>ge. Woodruff is a college man and is said to give a most realistic picture of the Harvard student. v li" i_J '. : .
