AX FRANCISCO is vitally interested in the. shippers' protest
against the methods of the Spring Valley water company.
There is more involved than the mere exposition of character
j istic thuggery on the part of the yeggman
corporation. Spring Valley's extortion of
SIOO.OOO a year from the shipping interests
oi this port is a direct blow at the commercial
\ life of San Francisco.'
Accustomed*' as we were to the defiant outlawry of Spring Val
ley, .the testimony of the' shippers proved that we had no adequate
appreciation of the lengths to which Spring Valley would cheerfully
go." That even Spring Valley has the assurance to x charge ten times
as "much for water at one end of a wharf as it does at the other end
of the same wharf is the charge made by the shippers and calmly
admitted by Spring Valley.
The evidence produced by the shippers shows that Spring Val
ley's regular harbor rate is approximately ten times the land rate
which applies at the entrance to the wharves. Water that may be
purchased for 16 cents the 1,000 gallons in East street is held at $1.50
the 1,000 gallons at the ship's side a few yards, distant. As might
be expected. Spring Valley differentiates between its shipper victims.
.While many companies are forced to pay the full rate, lesser rates
are:given more favored concerns, and one, the Southern Pacific com
;pai?v. enjoys the land rate.
•••/..A. majority of the companies are mulcted for $1.50 the 1,000
gallons. A few are let in on a 51.25 schedule and still others more
fa-y^ed have a rate of 75 cents the 1.000 gallons. The differentials
: afe .apparently the .result of individual opposition that threatened
;Spring Valley with entire loss of its extortionate gains. The South
ern Pacific company secured the land rate by threatening to discon
;tintre tbe Spring Valley service. Other companies were, given differ T
entials sufficient to dissuade them from assuming the expense and
•trouble involved in going to other bay points for water. A charge of
55*42.25 for water that could be purchased at a northern port for $10
is indicative of the penalty Spring Valley has imposed upon San
Francisco's harbor and the shipping of the Pacific coast.
The water rate imposed by Spring Valley is from five to sixteen
timesithe rates charged at other Pacific Coast ports and about twelve
times the average rates charged at Atlantic coast ports. As a meas
ure of self-protection several companies have discontinued the pur
chase: of water in San Francisco and others are preparing to establish
water stations at bay points. That means business for those points
jdjiyen away from San Francisco by Spring Valley.
, ••/'The appeals of the shippers have been met by Spring Valley as
have been San Francisco's appeals for even the semblance of decent
treatment. The shippers have been received with the same lack of
courtesy and the same cold blooded refusal even to consider their
propositions. The officers of Spring Valley are not sufficiently
devoid of humor to attempt to excuse or defend the extortion prac
ticed upon the shippers. They do not deny the injustice of their
charges. Their answer to all complaints is that Spring Valley is out
Samples of
Spring Valley's
Extortiori
Upon Spring Valley lies responsibility for the greatest disaster
ever suffered by an American city. Spring Valley has exposed San
Francisco to physical disaster; her people to disease and death.
Spring Valley has imposed exorbitant insurance rates as a clog
upon the commerce and physical development of San Francisco.
.With some measure of success it has fought San Francisco's attempt
to secure a municipal water system. Spring Valley has driven ship
ping from this port. It says now, "Give us more money or take the
San Francisco's refusal to purchase Spring Valley at $35,000,000
was an expensive mistake. We are paying the price of our short
sightedness now. There is but one solution for the people's problem.
That is the purchase of Spring Valley. The holdup corporation will
drive a harder bargain now. This is not the time to grieve over^nis
takes of the past. It is time for action that will free San Francisco
from, the dutches of the vampire.
HE CALL cordially indorses the home^industry movement
taken up by the Mission promotion association. Thanks to the
•intelligent energies of the special committeemeii chosen by the
Mission association, other improvement and
civic organizations are rapidly enlisting for the
campaign. Some gratifying practical results
have been accomplished at the very inception
of the good work. -•
•Some of the interested civic organizations have appointed special
committees to work^on behalf of home industries in prescribed dis
tricts.. That means actual work in the homes on behalf of California
foG>d and other products, the selection of which depends' largelyj- if
not" exclusively, upon the housewives of the state.
- -'.One of the first things accomplished by the champions of home
industry was to secure the co-operation of the board of public works.
It* is announced that the works board has inserted a clause in all
public contracts providing that only citizens may be employed in the
performance of public work. The board of works might well follow
up its labor policy by .inserting in all commodity and material con
tracts, a clause that would give preference to San Francisco and
California products!
It is proposed to invite the practical co-operation of the state
government. Governor Gillett is to be asked to make contracts on
behalf of the state include home product preference "clauses. The
Call js not advised as to what, if any, legal barriers there may be to
the governor's compliance with that request. This newspaper
assumes that if there be nothing in the law to prevent Governor
Xjillett from complyingJully with the home industry request, he will
be quick to lend his assistance.
If there is anything in the state laws governing the construction
of holdings and roads and the purchasing : ; of supplies of any kind

that would act as a bar to a home product preferential clause, it
should be removed by the legislature, which will meet in January.
If there be no such bar, it would be well to secure affirmative legis
lation on behalf of California industry. The organizations in charge
<5f the home product movement might profitably employ a committee
of experts upon the preparation of bills to be presented to the ensuing
legislature.
The home industry movement is a long step in the right direc
tion. That it should have been taken a,l6ng time ago is beside the
question. That it has been-taken now is gratifying notice of the fact
that the people pf ; -.San Frai^cisco are coming to a realization of the
community effort that can alone: insure the greater and better San
Francisco of our hopes and our faith. 'The honie industry movement
involves good private and good public policy:' more fand
better business. -It means more work ; more and better wages. -It is
entitled to the hearty co-operation of every Californian and especially
every San Franciscan. ' / : ' *,"".'
HE Native Sons of the Golden West may well congratulate
themselves, upon the work of their grand parlor of 1910. The
Tahoe grand~parlor session was one of the most successful jn
thehistory of the fraternity. . The deliberations
and accomplishments of that session are full of
promise for the order itself and for California.
The Tahoe grand parlor put represent
atives of the best type of the men 'of the west
at the head ot the order. It; put the right kind of men in line of
succession to the leadership. It reaffirmed -its allegiance to fraternal
policies that stand for, strength and development. Outside the imme
diate realm of fraternalism.it took up work of general interest and
importance for which it is entitled to the gratitude ; of the whole
people. . - \u25a0 \u25a0 •/- v .
As the order has grown older it has evinced a growing responsi
bility for a work that is peculiarly its own, :but which has something
more than a purely sentimental importance both to the Native Sons
and to California. It has taken a lively interest in the commemoration
of the historic events in the development of the Golden State. It
has given serious and practical thought to the preservation of Cali
fornia's splendid traditions. The dedication of 'monuments and appro
priations for the preservation of historic relics, and landmarks are

thousands of American and foreign visitors who have been privileged
to revel in the surpassing beauties of that Sierra fairyland. It should,

The Smart Set
NOT in many a day has any girl of our smart set received the beautiful
teacups and useful gifts that. Miss : Helene I nvin cherishes as tokens
of the sincere affection and the hearty congratulations that her many
friends have expressed in this chaTming way in acknowledging the
announcement of her engagement to Templeton Crocker.
The display, on a table in her boudoir speaks volumes for the undisputed
popularity of Miss Irwin. Of the rarest porcelain are many of the cups and
saucers, some mounted in finelyNvrought silver, and one in particular, which
is over 300 years old. is the gift of a mutual friend of both families, whose
ancestors have treasured them for generations'
Ornamental boxes and baskets of antique silver, a loving cup, an ex
quisite miniature,* a quaint candlestick and dainty bits of fancy work are
among the lovely presents.
With, pride and joy she shows her engagement ring, which is a huge
oval diamond, which one of her girl friends says looks like 20 pounds of ice.
" It is a matter of the greatest satisfaction that Miss Irwin is to make San
Francisco her home,* and best of aril is the fact that she herself is so very
happy at the prospect of always residing here among her dearest friends. .
The wedding will take place in January in the mansion of her parents,
a house that would be adaptable to the most elaborate plans, the most
ornate or original ideas that could be conceived. Some that already have
