SECRETARY BALLINGER'S -proposal to reopen ":tlie' : matter
of the -Garfield grant to San* Francisc o"-of Tights in the Hetch
. Hetchy valley does this city a gross 'and glaring injustice.
Acting^iu good faith and in full confidence that the .g overnment
would do likewise, the .city of San FrahciscoVhas expended .very,
considerable sums and. acquired vested in tlie .Hetch Hetchy
valley. Two issues of bonds have been, voted in prosecution- of
the project. The city has bought at a high" price some" --l-,2C0 acres
of patented lands in the valley which are. of "no possible use tb
.the municipality except as part of the. reservoir site . lii a word,
|he proposition contemplated by the secretary's action is a brutal
invasion of vested Yights such as no government' can afford to
j justify or •permit.' . •• / . ' : .
It is not at all certain, of course, that Mr.' Ballinger has power
to .revoke the grant after rights of property have once vested in
the city. Any action of the sort will doubtless be" resisted Air the
courts. \u25a0 The. justice and; the equities of the case are- all on. the
side, of San Francisco. This city has acted in good faith, relying
on- equal faith- from the government, and now the secretary of the
interior proposes to unsettle the whole matter and leave the water
project- in the, air. This is about?all that Ballinger can accomplish
in any event, and his power in this regard is doubtful. v
But if it be assumed that the secretary of the interioV actually
has power to revoke a grant after property rights have vested, even
then it is certain that no such revocation would be final. There
will be other secretaries of the interior before whom \the rights
and claims of San Francisco may be prosecuted. If Ballinger. has
power to reverse Garfield, why,- then, there will be other secretaries
who cafr upset the decree of the incumbent.
. • However, The Call has confidence that when the equities of
the case are presented to the secretary he will realize the strength
of San Francisco's case and the needs of the population of the
bay;cities for a pure and adequate water .'supply.
, Of course, it is not impossible that the case is prejudiced
against San' Francisco and the conclusion foregone as far as
Ballinger is concerned. Director Smith of the geological survey
may have had. his orders to make a report fin ding^ne Lake Eleanor
supply all sufficient. There may easily be secret influences at
work of which we know nothing. In default of information on the
matter The Call makes no such charge, biit the case is one that
will bear watching and it should be prosecuted with the fullest
confidence that perseverance of effort will ultimately bring con
firmation-of San Francisco's rights. great city abides. Secre
taries come and go. .
PROF. WILLIS MOORE, chief of the weather bureau anc
administrator of what Marse Henry Watterson irreverently
styles ''Uncle Sam's Guegsworks," writes to The Call saying
that this paper's original conjecture con
cerning the inspiration of his report on' the
influence of forests on climate and on floods
was correct — The Call guessed right the first
, , time. Coining from an expert in the art of
guessing, this testimony should be gratifying to the sensibilities
of any newspaper. °-';.
Professor Moore's timely monograph was not prompted by a
desire to wade into controversy with,Gifford Pinchot "or even Uo
'.'get in right with important official people who do not like
Mr. Pinchot any -more than the law requires. It is true. that Pro
fessor Moore's report did get a "rise" out of Mr. Pinchot, who
unkindly described- Professor Moore's science as merely a form
Professor Moore protests a deep affection for- the principles
of conservation and in* proof of this attachment points with pride
to the opening paragraph of his report, which reads: \u25a0 .
One of the most important problems before the" American people
today is the protection of their natural resources against either the
greed of those who. would monopolize them for. their own benefit, or .
those who, while well meaning, would, through ignorance, destroy our
; heritage and leave posterity poor.
Marse Henry Watterson's comment on these official sentiments
comes so near cryptogram that if he lived farther west it might
get, him indicted. "A sto the first paragraph quoted," says the
Kentucky prophet, "it may be said that opening a jackpot with
prayer does not affect the basic principles of- draw poker."
The Call may not- pretend to spell out this mysterious crypto
gram, which may be packed with treasons and stratagems. Let
us rather be content to regard ' Professor Moore's fine exordium
in the-: light of an apology for his opinion that forests exercise no
influence, good or bad, on' floods or rainfall. It is this opinion that
Gifford Pinchot rudely describes as "nonsense."; V y
Professor Moore incidentally admits that the actual measure
ments shq\v greater rainfall in forests than in adjacent untimb'ered
territory', but for this phenomenonhe blames the rain gauge, which,
he maintains, is a gay deceiver. In support of this imputation^ on
the. morals. of a hitherto respectable— as alleged— instrument Pro
fessor Moore quotes his 'colleague, Professor Abbe, who writes :
It. ap*pears that in. ordinary rainfalls we have a mixture of large
and small drops of water descending with various velocities that, depend •:*
on their size, density and the resistance ,6f the air. "Particles of hail
descend even faster than drops of water, 'but flakes of, snow fall more
slowly. When the wind-strikes the side of a rain gauge the deflected
currents move past this obstacle more rapidly, and there is an invisible' r
layer of wind above the open mouth of the gauge, whose horizontal
motion is more, rapid than, that of- the wind higher iip. Some of "the
larger falling ' drops may"- descend with a rapidity sufficient to penetrate ,
this, swiftly .moving layer : of air, but the slower "ones will be carried r 6ver
to leeward andT many .will miss.the gauge.V The resulting loss- off rain
.will depend upon both the horizontal velocity of the wind and the vertical
velocity of the descent of. the rain. ' . \u25a0: \u25a0'\u25a0" Vv*
_ ~~ Professor Abbe ' refers to - the ' important researches of .the
distinguished Mikle in exposing the bad character of the lying
rain-gauge, b.ut passes over, in silence the plea of the learned
Gumplowicz, who maintainsrthat the real offender is the viewless
wind that ; sneaks away with an important part of the gauge»s
natural prey. With these' high, themes and intimate considerations
The Call pretends no near acquaintance, but we cheerfully exonerate
Professor Moore from any imputation .; that he«has been doing
politics in the disguise of science.

EDITORIAL PAGE OF THE CALL
AT Washington the impression gains ground that the presi
dent's program of legislation will 'get- through congress in
one shape or another, but that this compliance with the
~~ executive's wishes will .be merely nominal.
The plan attributed to the leaders is to pass
the laws, but to emasculate them either by
the introduction of unconstitutional clauses
, , \u25a0•' I' or by forgetting to make the necessary
| appropriations- to give them effect. -'.*\u25a0•.
[r';.\ This theory is not< at all strained, for it is in line.with the
plan followed in making up the corporation tax law, the income
tax amendment and the customs court provisions, of the tariff. AH
' these measures were adopted at tjie° request of the' president and
one and all they are in the throes of dissolution owing to defects
in drafting or failure to appropriate^ -\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0',
How the situation in Washington is regarded may be gathered
from the Springfield Republican, whigh says f editorially:
The administration tangle, over, the corporation tax law is bad
enough," but. a tangle quite as bad seems to be; developing around, the
postal savings, bank measure. The president has set his own- trap here,
and his chief reliance in the senate, Mr._ Aldrich, will no doubt manage
to force him into it. as he did in the case of the income tax trickery.
Yet no doubt the Rhode Island senator will continue to be first at the
White House conferences. It is a sorry spectacle,, and costly it is
likely to prove for both the president and his* party.. . _'"-.
Mr, Taft has. delivered himself over into the hands of his
enemies. He imagined that he could, placate such men as Aldrich
and Cannon and beguile them, into giving honest legislation for
the good of the whole people. In return they give him something
to play with and let him. think that he-is- getting the real thing
instead of a sham. * For example, we quote from the Washington
correspondence of the. Chicago Tribune :
It is asserted on authority that congress isi prepared to
pass a postal, savings bank bill which will not be constitutional, in the
;hope that it willbc knocked out at an early date by ;the supreme court.
Such al determination rests not with the men who have, up to this time,
been favorable to 'the postal savings legislation, biit "with the new sup
' porters who have been^. swung into line by the demands of the president -
that such a law be passed. »
This latter. element includes, first ; of all. Senator Aldrich, and those
associates of his; in the senate who are known ;to be thoroughly opposed
to the postal savings: bank as a part of the country's financial structure.
Aldrich has given the president "; assurances that the /postal savings bank I
bill will be passed, and it is known now that this legislation will be ,
enacted at no distant;date. \u25a0 -•-">'- --":-„ V.
.;• This is'what, comes from making an alliance with yoiir enemies
in the hope that you can persuade them to cut their own throats.
PRINTERS and s -stationers object, with justice, to the practice
of the postoffice department .in conipeting for an important
part of the trade that should belong to these lines of business.
f— \u25a0 — — — ~—~ l The objection appears- to. be . well founded.
Printing indorsements on envelopes. is. neither
a proper nor necessary function of . govern
ment and it takes bread .away from hard
J working and deserving tradesmen. The work
done by the government in this regard is in the nature of a gift
tOipeople Who can very well afford to. pay for :the service.'
This practice 'is, of course, a cause of loss to the postoffice
department except in^jp -far, as it 'ma}* be supposed to promote* the
sale fof ./stamped "envelopes.-. Such profit ; as may. accrue from .this
soiirce means a \u25a0 more than equivalent loss to the : people who would
supply these' needs by private enterprise. : It is^.a' picayune business,
in which a great government should ' not engage. y
In pursuance of these views and other /considerations bearing
on -the matter a r bill has J3een introduced in congress, by Senator
Knute Nelson prohibiting .\u25a0/this'-;^practice of the department. The
'measure ;\u25a0 appears -'to bbc deserving of the • fullest: support: >.
