CALIFORNIA machine candidates who find comfort in the results of the republican primary fight in lowa are leaning upon an extremely slender reed. Extraordinary powers of imagination must be brought into play to make the lowa returns spell either victory for the reactionaries or repudiation for the Roose velt policies. Every insurgent incumbent was renom mated by the lowa republicans. Hull, chairman of the committee on military affairs and one of the recognized leaders, of the reaction aries, went down to overwhelming defeat. Thanks to the efforts of the professional politicians who attempted to invest the guberna torial contest with a national bearing, Governor Carroll's majority pf 23,000 over Garst two years ago was reduced to something like 1,000. Kennedy and Smith, the two regular congressmen renom inated, pulled through by narrow margins. The decisive defeat of Congressman Hull in. the seventh lowa \u25a0^district is as significant as was the reclamation of one of the Penn sylvania districts by the insurgents. Hull has been a member of congress- for 20 years. His continuous service and his affiliations with Speaker Cannon, Congressmen Dalzell/ Payne* and the inter :csts they represent have made him a power in the lower house. His district includes lowa's largest city. The fact that his was a city district gave him an advantage enjoyed by no other reactionary in lowa. The fact that he was chairman of the committee on mili tary affairs and, as such, had been able to fish large slices out of the pork barrel for his home town, gave him another and peculiar hold upon the vote of Dcs Moines. The insurgents, headed by Senators Cummins and Dolliver, and actually led by Cummins, matie the defeat of Hull the immediate object of their fight. The most sanguine of the insurgents hoped for nothing more than a hair line victory. The unofficial returns show that the hoped for margin became, in fact, a majority of more than 3,100 for Prouty. As pointed out by The Call a few days ago. the investiture of the lowa gubernatorial contest with a national meaning was unfair to both Governor Carroll and his opponent, Garst. Carroll did everything he could to offset the work of the machine politicians who hoped to'make him the agency of their paper vindication. He insisted through the press and from the stump that his candidacy .was in no wise based upon national questions, and that he stood .upon his record as governor and that alone. Carroll's record was not subject to attack. It was admitted that he had been an excellent governor, but. thanks to the injection of "regularity" into his cam paign, he narrowly escaped defeat. Two years ago Carroll beat Garst by more than 23.000 votes. With five counties missing, his 1910 majority over .the same candidate has dwindled to 706 votes, and no one pretends to believe that the missing counties will* double that slender margin. * In six out of eleven districts the regulars dared not present can didates for congressional nomination. In the second district Daw sop, formerly the late Senator Allison's confidential man, refused to attempt to succeed himself. The progressives beat Hull. They nominated their candidates in eight out of eleven districts. The regulars nominated two incumbents and a third candidate in a democratic district. They very nearly accomplished the defeat of Governor Carroll by dubbing him "regular" against his wish. All this may look like a machine victory to some of the California machine politicians. To the majority of the American people it looks'like machine rout and panic. .. • Machine Really Routed in the lowa Voting -,'-', \u25a0 \u25a0 \u25a0 . . fm f my HE CALL cordially indorses the plans proposed by Chairman S Vaughan and his fourth of July committee.

That program is diver sified and comprehensive. The limitations. placed upon the committee have determined the character of the program. It will afford health ful entertainment for young and old and fairly may be said to offer a diversity that should appeal to all classes. • The promised program is good enough to warrant the co-opera tion and attendance of all San Franciscans. It, is good enough to warrant San Francisco's invitation to the people of central California to join in San Francisco's observance ofahc nation's birthday. - - v The Call both appreciates and regrets the difficulties that confront the committee charged with the fourth of July celebration. The state of public mind that has made those difficulties possible is to be regretted. The glorious fourth has come with us to be t a holiday; rather -than an anniversary.

" : . The Geary street company>pins its hopes for an injunction restraining the city from liiarketing the Geary street bonds Hipon- its definition of the worcl "governmental/! 'The coiitentiori of the peti tioner is that the city seeks to float the bonds under the provisions of the charter, which give the city "only governmental powers," and that the operation of a. municipal street railroad is not a govern mental function. , . . .. : . : The exquisite refinement of distinction possible to the legal mind was exhibited by. counsel for the company, who declared that the operation of a municipal water-system, or even bf a municipal lighting plant, would be a governmental affair •within the meaning of the charter, but never. a; municipal railroad. In response to inquiries from the bench, counsel conceded the city the right to own arid operate numerous public utilities. He was not prepared to admit that, as an appropriate corollary to a municipal water system, the city might operate a municipal bakery, but neither was he prepared to enter an absolute denial of the city's right to operate any utility except a railroad. That was lese majeste, treason, treasury looting, deliberate, violation of the sacred constitu tion, revolutionary, infamous private policy, bad public, policy and contempt of court. Most of, which, of course, was by inference. 1-f The intimately inquiring frame of mind exhibited by the justices of the supreme court was'provpeative of much unhappiness for coun= sd. Questions plumped from the bench were responsible : for the development of the line which the Geary street company would have mark the limits of municipal ownership of public utilities. Thejr also brought into clear relief the absurdities of the petitioner's distinc tions. If the inquiries propounded by the justices -and the 'manner of their putting may be given the significance usually a^enbed. to ques tions from the bench, they are full of hope for the people. Hope for the People in Geary Street ENTHUSIASTIC- i ndorseme "t of .the Stockton street tunnel by the Downtown association gives marked impetus to the move ment for the :immediate completion of that- much desired \u25a0 [ improvement. An encouraging feature of! -the Downtown association's indorsement may be found in the absolute unanimity of its merii^ .; bers and; the -fact .thata; large number of those' •__ ? ; j; : members; are owners of property which will be assessed topay for the improvement. , - - - Hurry up the funnel Under Stockton Street ; The:report upon the legality of the proposition submitted: by Attorney Savage is a; gratifying substantiation of the opinions of legal experts .who have given the local assessment district-question careful attention. Q Mr. Savage finds i that the charter^provides thf" precise machinery for^the consummation of the proj ect and that the opinions of the propoi^ents have been sustained bylthe supreme' court of; the United States in a case which; arose in Chicago. The fact that there are no longer any ; objectors appears to preclude the raising of any legal teclinicality and the virtually unanimous opinion of the expert attorneys is: a further insurance against such attack: It if generally conceded that;there .is. now no question about the project. The understanding is^that definite action awaits only the opinion of the city attorney, which has been forecasted: *"\u25a0 "The' only question now is one :o: of 'prompt action; even haste: : The completion of-the 'tunnel should; be-^iisjied"w great local improvement; but it is more than that.^ -The purely local advantages are, of course;; of^ tremendous importance.

The air is redolent with the flowering chestnut and mimosa, the weather is perfect and the display of airy, dainty gowns is beyond, a mere pen description. These are seen in the afternoon at the races at Longschamps or at tea at the Ritz, Pre Catalin or. Armenonvillc, where the monde enjoy its refreshments under the beautiful trees to the accompaniment of a Czigan band. The diversions of the morning are riding or driving in the Bois. shopping in the rue dc la Paix or "skating in the Palais de Glace, where the chic Frenchwomen, in their. exquisite short costumes, skating and dancing with tile Russian masters, present a most fascinating sight. The most attractive costumes are of silk velvet of black or Nattier^ blue, made strictly plain and with flarinf skirts, which are faced with endless num bers of pale pink chiffon flounces. As the skirts meet the tops of smart high shoes, one can easily irnagine.tbe charming effect of the frou-frou as the wearers glide and sway to the 'rhythm of the music. Among the frivolous little accessories to the smart gowns in Paris are the silk flower ornaments, which seem to have displaced the artificial flowers. Tiny silk blossoms and buds are used as a finishing touch to not only neck near and gowns, but to hats as well. Worn with a tailor suit is a bouton nicre made of changeable or Persian silk. One of our prominent society- women- who is spending the summer in Europe writes of a tea she attended at the chateau near Paris of a charming Frenchwoman. Just before the guests arrived a footman entered the salon and passed through the room with a metal salver, which he held by a long handle— she describes it as resembling a shovel. On this was burning a delicious volatile liquid, which immediately filled the room with a faint, delicate perfume. The same hostess also perfumes the water in the fingce _v" bowls, but so slightly that the effect is said to be refreshing and in no way * objectionable. If this fad is to be taken up, it is to be hoped that the French elixir will be imported, as there is nothing more overpowering than a drop too much ot even the most expensive scent. *\u25a0 • • The wedding of Miss Grace Holt and Ralph Lohman attracted a crowd of friends last evening to the Sweden borgian church.
