:'?£\u25a0* N amiable prelate of the Episcopal church, taking occasion on
l\ Sunday at a public function to refer to the graft prosecutions
/~\ in this city, asked for suspense of judgment because there was
conflict of opinion and, to his mind, some confusion of testi
mony. He # makes the inquiry, "Who is lying?" The Call gives
Bishop Nichols credit for full sincerity and honesty of purpose, how
ever mistaken he may be in his conclusions, but it regrets that he
should have felt it necessary to take such an attitude. The fact is
that this is an issue that cannot be obscured by clamor of interested
parties or such as* may be raised for a price. It is a plain question of
right and wrong and the duty rests on every man to make up his
mind whether he is for honest government or dishonest. There is
no escape from that choice.
If Bishop Nichols wants a straight answer to his question he
can get it from many clergymen of his own diocese who will tell him
without equivocation "who is lying."
If Bishop Nichols were in search of secular authority of the
highest character on the same question he would profit by reading
President Roosevelt's letter to Rudolph Spreckels 1 , published last
week. In that illuminating document he will find these words ad
dressed to Mr. Spreckels :
My dear sir, I want you to feel that your experience is simply the
experience of all of us who are engaged in this fight. There is no form of
slander and wicked falsehood which will not as a matter of course' be em
ployed against all men engaged in such a struggle, and this not only on the
part of men and papers representing; the* lowest type of .demagogy, but, I
am sorry to say, also on the part oXmen'and papers representinjg the interests
that call themselves pre-eminently' conservative, pre-eminently cultured.
That seems to answer the bishop's question, but let us read on:
Indeed, if there can be any -degrees in the contemptuous abhorrence
with which right thinking citizens should regard corruption, it must be felt
in its most extreme form for the so called "best citizens^," the men high' in
business and social life, who by backing up or by preventing the punishment
of wealthy criminals set the seal of their approval on crime and give honor
to rich felons. The most powerful ally of lawlessness and mob violence is
the man, whoever he may be, politician or businessman, judge or lawyer,
capitalist or editor, who in any way or shape works so as to shield wealthy
and powerful wrong doers from the consequences of their misconduct.
You have heart breaking difficulties with which to contend.- You have
to fight not only the banded powers of evil, but, alas, that it should be said,
the supineness and indifference of many good men on whose zealous-sup
port you had a right to feel that you could rely. Do not be discouraged;
do not flinch. You are in a fight for plain decency, for the plain* democracy
of the plain people, who believe in honesty and in fair dealing as between
man and man. Do not become disheartened. Keep up the fight.
Amiability is a fine quality, but when it comes to questions 6f
right or wrong and plain duty it does not carry us far, and he that
is not with us is against us. It will not do for the church to slough
off its responsibilities so complacently.'
MR. BRYAN will not help his cause by picking holes' in the
republican national platform. It is not a difficult undertaking.
We have had occasion to point out in these columns some of
the obvious defects in that instrument. The fact is that plat
forms have come to count for little. The candidate- has taken the
place of the platform and the coming election will be fought out and
decided on the merits of the candidates and not at all by weighing
or. contrasting declarations 1 made. at Chicago and at Denver.
Taft is the real republican platform and in all probability Bryan
will be the democratic declaration of principles. In either case the
convention made planks loaded on the candidates will prove to be
so much extraneous matter. In actual practice Mr. Taft's letter of
acceptance will supersede the republican platform in very much the
same way that Mr. Bryan's letter will take the place of the Denver
platform. The fact is that the people as a whole have come to hold
in slight regard the declarations* of conventions. The Chicago con
vention nominated Taft in- obedience to an imperative mandate of
the party. Its other proceedings do not count.
Four years ago the republican national platform was the cus
tomary wishy washy mess of noncommittal declarations. * You may
search it from start to finish without finding a line foreshadowing
the policies with which Roosevelt's name has become identified.
Roosevelt was the real platform and not the colorless document
laboriously compiled by a lot of politicians, timorous always, mostly
ignorant and often with axes to grind.
The people elect a man and not a platform. They will ele'et
Taft as they elected Roosevelt, because they know the policies he
stands' for, no matter what conventions may declare. Mr. Bryan is
barking up the wrong tree. Let him tell the people just what he
stands for himself. We know just where Taft stands, but Mr. Bryan
is so facile in change of front that it is quite difficult to place him. 1
fffTiHEY have allpassed the buck up" to Uncle Sam." That is
I the way an American merchant in China puts the case rela-
J^ tive to the attitude of the European powers' toward Japan
and the'open door in Manchuria, japan, by various methods,
some of them open and some secret, has since the war continued i to
seize the great bulk of Manchurian trade. American trade comes
next, but at a very long interval. - Manchuria, is good 'commercial
territory. It has four important lines ..of railway and by intercourse
with foreigners from many countries- its, people have:come to know
the value- of imported goods, i A -correspondent in Mqukdene^
"plains some _ 4 of. the Japanese methods: tii3s':\O;t;:' ;^-. % :'.s> i ;.j^ :: '' i ;
It is not always easy to determirte r th'e causes for sudden shifts in the
.balance of international'trade, buir.iniManchuria -the \u25a0.\u25a0.reasons 'are obvious.
For more than a year after peace was declaredthe Japanese: military authori
•ties, having control of the, commonly used avenues ;'of ingreSs; to Manchuria^
practically estopped all" foreign], trade except their, own from entering the
; country and used this interval to estabusH aiidrprdrhote Japa"nese f trade by
all the means at command.
f; Not . until the: complaints l andiprotests^oi^other . foreignifirms : bejcanl to
reach their governments, did Japan modify this policy;- then slowly, as
pressure has been put upon it, it has abandoned some of the more obvious
and irritating restraints and discriminations.
In certain important, respects normal conditions affecting foreign com
merce are outwardly restored. Chinese custom houses have been established
at Dalny, Port Arthur and Antung and £t several places on the Siberian
border, and Russian and Japanese goods are ncrnr presumed to pay the same
tariff duty as other foreign articles, thus ostensibly removing one method
of discrimination. v, ; .. }
The Japanese control two of the railways penetrating Manchu
ria and they have become accomplished masters of the gentle art of
rebating. Stiff differentials are allowed on Japanese goods, while
the foreigners must in all cases' pay full rates. That is the situation
that confronts American diplomacy. China* is helpless to enforce
the open door and the European powers appear indifferent. It is a
matter that nearly concerns the trade of the Pacific coast.
Bryan says the republican party is
deceiving labor. That's his way of
trying to do the same thing.

ward met have had their' curiosity

RkiSC -His Prices V V became as it were one of the
"inner circle of society'- there were the usual number of croaking prophet^
who predicted that ' His art -would die a natural death and he would become
a mere money grubber. ,Why they should have been so pessimistic in their
prophecies was known to nobody but themselves. Their dismal forebodings
were doomed to disappointment, for McComas went right on painting, and
painting, better each time. McComas happens to be one of those artists
who "improve; with age. He is also one of the. few artists out here who
combine great talent and fine execution with corresponding financial ability.
His own explanation of his success h that he tries to paint what he sees,
to make the picture give the same impression that nature gives him. Some
of the McComas aphorisms that are worthy to be placed on the wall 3of the
art schools are: ......
"Art is art, but art is also business."
"One must live to paint; one must sell to live; one must advertise
to sell." y ':*? V" " *" 9ff
- "It pays a painter to appear dignified to his patrons. Dignity raises
prices; familiarity lowers them. It is the artist who pays for a presuming
patron." . \u25a0
Though McComas is a native of Tasmania he is , American, . especially
Californian, in heart, and he likes" San Francisco as well 'as his wife. does.
Edna> Goodrich is going to buy a play in
Europe; so she says. It is to be hoped .the
fair .Edna, will take more care of the manu
scripts submitted for her approval there than she did of one a San Francisco
woman playwright, gave her to read. When Edna was leading lady foe Nat
Goodwin in his last tour of the coast she told an interviewer that she
wanted to buy a play. She said she* would read all plays submitted to her.
In response to that invitation she received a manuscript of a drama
by a local writer. Miss Goodrich sent a note saying that she could not read
the play then, but would during her coast tour and would then give her
opinion as to its availability.
the hopeful playwright waited, and waited, and waited. The Goodwin
coast tour ended, but the play had not been reported upon, nor returned.
Finally the playwright wrote a note of polke inquiry. After a long period
of silence word came from the actress that she could not use the drama.
She did not return the manuscript. Another note from the author brought
forth the answer that Miss Goodrich had lost the manuscript. The play
wright is wondering whether she lost it before or after reading. She is
out $20 for typewriting,, but then' there, are those lovely autographed notes
from the charming Edna. • They are surely worth an old manuscript.
