An Independent Service
By the Panama Route
IT is good news for the shippers and producers of California that
an independent freight service via Panama is about to~ be estab
lished by Bates & Chesebrough. It is an enterprise that promises
industrial emancipation for the producing interests of the state by
opening a route now practically blocked or obstructed by the Pacific
Mail steamship company, in league with and under subsidy from
j the overland railroads.
If. the government could be persuaded to back the Flint
| McLachlan bill for a federal line of steamships on this coast to
j supplement the similar line on the Atlantic side that measure would
shave solved the difficulty, but, in fact, while fully concurring in
j the policy embodied in this bill, The Call has never had any con
] yiction that the measure was seriously intended by its proponents,
i who knew quite well what sort of reception it would meet in a
I congress dominated by Aldrich and Cannon and the interests they
j represent. The bill appeared to be meant chiefly for political con
sumption in the coming campaign, and this impression is confirmed
by the nature of the reception the bill has met with from the
senate committee.
The San Diego Union, discussing the hearing on the bill
before the senate committee, says:
Incidentally, it will be noted that part of the hearing is devoted to
the action of the secretary of war in allowing the Paciiic Mail 70 per
cent of the joint rate via the isthmus. It appears from the statements
of the Panama railway's lawyer who appeared before the committee
that the secretary was bulldozed into that arrangement by the Mail
: company's threat to discontinue its service. "As no other company,"
j said ihe attorney, "was willing to undertake the operation of ships to
the isthmus, it was obviously necessary to comply with the Pacific Mail
company's demands." But why the assumption that with the Mail
company's steamers withdrawn nobody would enter the fine field for
traffic thus made vacant? There is money in the steamer business on
the Pacific coast. If an3'body doubts it, let him note what the American-
Hawaiian line is doing. Had the Mail, company taken off its vessels —
a step which California would not regret — it would be very strange if
the opportunity thus presented were neglected. Such chances do not
go begging in these days of keen enterprise.
It is encouraging, however, to note the fight that is being made
before the committee against the Pacific Mail monopoly. But perhaps
it will be as well not to cherish too high hopes of the success of the
Flmt-McLactyan bill. It is opposed by the most powerful interests in
the country. It might seem that a more modest measure would have a
better chance of success. r
The Call has more than once expressed the opinion that it
would be a good thing for the coast were the Pacific Mail to
withdraw its Panama service. Should that service be taken off
its place would inevitably be supplied at once .by independent
enterprise free from alliances with the railroads giving real com
petition by water. In fact, as matters now stand, such a service
is about to be installed whether the Pacific Mail retires from the
field or not, and it may very well be that this step is made possible
by the concession of 70 per cent of rates made by the government
to the Pacific Mail. ;
The benefit of that concession will* of course, be equally
extended to the Bates & Chesebrough line and the shipping public
will be the beneficiary of a measure which, perhaps, was never!
meant for their advantage. \
PASADEXA contemplates the installation of some .sort of
municipal plant for the entertainment of tourists, visitors
and winter resorters generally. "Dread and circuses" was
the ancient Roman cure for discontent and
that minor form of disgruntlement Which
the French call ennui. Pasadena draws the
line at bread, but is wjlliug to provide the
, circus. It will probably be the circus of
metaphor, supplying such restraint and moderated joys and excite
ments as a refined suburban demand, gratifying its pleasures sadly,
may find suitable. There will be neither clowns nor elephants
nor red lemonade nor even ladies in spangles, but discourses of
an improving and intellectual character, such as Professor Judy's
promised course of lectures on Drowning, will help to fill the
aching void of life in Pasadena.
At present, perhaps, the program of entertainment is a little
vague, and, indeed, for a city to set out of malice prepense to be
amusing is not so easy of fulfillment as it might look at first glance:
but the business is in serious contemplation, as we gather from
the Long Beach Telegram, which says:"
Pasadena has accepted the advice of Colonel Green and will under
take a system of entertainments for the benefit of winter tourists. No
definite plan for raising the money has been settled upon, but there is
a very considerable sentiment in favor of a special tax levy. This is
the only equitable method of paying for all these public < expenses, and
should be generally adopted in place of the subscriptions now being
constantly asked for. If public entertainments are of any value they*
benefit the entire town, and every property owner should bear his'
portion of the burden instead of placing it on the shoulders of the few
businessmen who make up the bulk of all subscriptions collected.
Life at a winter resort is, after all, a serious business. The
allurements of bridge whist and pink tea have certain well defined
limits and no man ever sold his soul to the devil for either. Pasa
dena has a notable institution recognized by courtesy as the
Valley Hunt club, although the cluj> has never been known to
hunt anything, for there is nothing Jo hunt unless -the pursuit of
Scotch and soda on the -quiet partakes of the pleasures of the chase.
So it comes that to supply this distressing void Mr. Bumble will
be- pressed into service as impresario to make the town haoov
li\u25a0\u25a0. tr r J

PROF. WILLIS L. MOORE, chief of the weather bureau, finds
Gifford Pinchot quite ready to mix it with him on questions
of forest politics, and it may be that Professor Moore already
~ begins to be sorry he spoke. Whether he
meant to meddle 'in the current politics of
congress or not, his recent statement on the
effect of forests on floods before the house
_j committee on is being industri
ously circulated and exploited by the opponents of the conservation
policy in congress. Pinchot meets that statement with this reply:
If the conservation of the forests and of the other natural resources
rests on nothing better than "the false reasoning and mistaken conclu
sions of enthusiasts," then this nation has surely gone astray. In that
event the great meeting of the governors o£. the states called by
Theodore Roosevelt was futile, its conclusions moonshine and the
progress of the nation in the last three years toward the control of the
property of the people for the benefit of the people a mere delusion.
. There is a kind of science well illustrated by the story of the
professor who was engaged in demonstrating the impossibility of trans
mitting messages by electricity under the Atlantic at the very moment
when the first message was being received. Common sense outweighs
many labored deductions. The experience of the ages, crystallized in
the common knowledge of the whole people, declares beyond all'ques
tion that forests do influence the flow of streams.
If the figures submitted by Professor Moore seem to prove the
opposite, then I should be much more inclined to believe there was some
thing wrong with the figures than with the common knowledge of the
human race; and there are all the figures which contradict him to be
considered also, figures at least as reliable as those he submits. '- '
Every man who has used his eyes outdoors knows that the condition
of the surface has a powerful and immediate influence on runoff. Forest"
plowed-land, brush land, each has its own effect; and "it is flying in
the face of what every outdoor man knows to deny it. "
Professor Moore is not an intruder in this field and what he has
to say will be received with respect, but he might have shown
better judgment by avoiding conflict with ah accomplished fisticuffcr
like Pinchot, and, further, he might suspect from the use to wliich
his alleged scientific conclusions are put that he has got into some
very queer company. If Professor Moore really belongs with that
crowd it is just as well that the public should know as: mtich^ but
we prefer to believe that animpelling enthusiasm inspired by the
real or supposed results of his researchesled him into the wrong pew.
r If Professor Moore read his: message in»the : stars it is^beim*
used for a very earthly purpose. s ! .V fe

EDITORIAL PAGE OF THE CALL
The Way of the World
ORGANIZED labor has asked congress so extend the pro
visions of the eight hour law so that they shall affect and
protect labor employed on government contract work.
The Call is not familiar with the exact
provisions of the Gardner bill, but this news
paper is heartily in sympathy with the pur
poses of this measure. . The eight- hour work
„ day was legally established by congress in
1892. Under the provisions of that law the many thousands of
federal employes in the departmental and bureau services work
the eight hours, which has become the recognized standard for the
working day. in . :' '
That the federal service was improved rather than impaired
by the enactment of the eight hour law has ilong been a closed
question. Organized labor insists that the federal government
should give the same protection to labor employed by it indirectly
that it insures to labor employed by it directly.
Labor's contention is sound. If eight hours constitute a fair
day for the laborer hired by the government, it must necessarily
constitute a fair day for the man who works at his side, but whose
compensation flows from the government through a contractor
or subcontractor.
Congress has declared that eight hours is a fair day. Let
congress be consistent by insisting that all men employed on work
for the government be employed under the conditions that would
be insured to them if they were hired by thegovernment. -

ment Employes
HTMIE forthcoming decision of the supreme court on the tobacco,
I trust case is expected to be pregnant with important results j
and the outcome is looked for with no little trepidation not j
only by the trusts, but likewise by the admin- j
istration. The circuit court in this suit put
what may be described as "the- extreme inter
pretation" on the Sherman law against com
, j binations in restraint of trade. That is to
say, the court held that the .words of the act meant. what they said.
In his brief on the appeal Attorney General Wickersham intimated
that he did not press for an extreme interpretation of the law and
with this somewhat dubious utterance left the matter in the hands j
:>f the court. This position has been interpreted as a hint to the
:ourt that if it would amend the law. by way of construction this
;ourse would make things easier for the administration and would j
-elieve congress of a disagreeable burden. That body would like
:o amend the law, but dares not. So the burden? is shifted to the
:ourt. It is a situation that intensifies interest in the pending
iecisfon, which will probably be withheld until after the argument
n the Standard oil trust case next. month.
All interesting" offshoot of the tobacco trust case is that of
he Burley tobacco society, a corporation of growers in Kentucky,
Dhio and Indiana organized to fight the trust. The Burley society
s, of course, just as much a trust as the other, although operating
m a much smaller scale. It . is.-a trust organized to fight a trust,
tnd it may be added that^ the' Burley people have been quite
mccessful in bringing prices to a profitable figure. \ But the big
rust now urges that the administration is playing favorites in
lot .prosecuting the farmers. It is the ancient and perplexing
irgument about good trusts and bad trusts, and this constantly
ecurring problem is enough. Vto make Mr. Taft's hair turn gray.
k yith the politica-1 fate, of Ohio trembling, in the balance the
:ourse to be pursued in relation to the Burley society becomes
ncreasingly perplexing.

i Temperature on Algol 1
The remarkable double star called
Algol, in the constellation Perseus, has
recently been investigated fully, and,
says the University correspondent. Its
temperature 1 " has been estimated at 23,
000 degrees centigrade, taking that of
the sun as 6,000 degrees. In the tenth
century this star was distinctly red.
but it is now white. It undergoes a
cycle of changes in' brightness at
periods of. two days and 20 hours; It
is constant during the greater part of
this period, and then gradually di
minishes to, about half its original
brightness, remaining at the minimum
for about 20 minutes. These changes
are due *o the fact that Algol has a
larsre dark satellite by which it is par
tially eclipsed at each revolution.
