I T is the preference of The Call" to discredit current rumor tha
I the powers controlling the financial interests and institutions o
San Francisco have entered into a combination to refuse sub
scriptioiis to the Geary street railway bonds
Notwithstanding the fact that such rumor
have been given public statement this pape
can not believe that the bankers and othe
*.— — financial men of San Francisco would len<
themselves to a program so obviously unwise and one so certain tc
react injuriously on the institutions which they administer. Th<
city of Los Angeles is'going through a similar experience in relatior
to it> aqueduct bonds, and it is conceivable that the difficulty ir
marketing perfectly sound bonds bearing high rates of interest i;
due to the inactive condition of the market for such securities.
Accepting that view The Call advises the bankers that the}
- are pursuing a dangerous and short sighted policy when they suffei
a public impression to gain ground to the effect that they are engaged
in a conspiracy to block extensions of municipal ownership. It h
the fact that an impression of this sort has gained wide acceptance
in the public mind and it would be the part of wisdom for the bankers
to demonstrate in a positive way that the suspicions of the people
have no real foundation. It would be a disastrous thing for the
fnks were they to set up a factious opposition to an almost uni
rsal popular aspiration and it would be equally unwise to permit
• \u25a0 \u25a0 \u25a0• .-"' - \u25a0 - ' \u25a0 * ' *\u25a0
general impression of that sort— whether well founded or not —
The banks earn their dividends, large dividends, by handling
the money of the people and the most important service they render
in return is that of keeping the books. It is not an abstruse or
difficult business and its chief requirements are honesty and caution
The profits in proportion to the capital involved are'greater than
those enjoyed by any other form of business. Now. if the bankers
give the people to understand or allow them to form the belief that
they are factiously opposed to lines of public progress that command
a nearly unanimous popular support the result is likely to be
retaliation in one shape or another.
There is a considerable residuum of popular hostility to banks
of all kinds, which, although it has but slight justification, is always
a factor to be reckoned in the count. The Call would greatly regret
. to' see an\- sort of movement or belief gain ground which might
emphasize or tend to make more acute this feeling in the public
mind. There can be no doubt whatever that the popular support
accorded to the postal' savings bank measure in congress took its
strength chiefly from the condition of the public mind.
Now, if people generally are suffered to believe that the banks
are allied to blc>ck and hinder the emancipation of cities from the
intolerable tyranny oL public service corporations it would bea very
bad thing for the bankers and would certainly lead to important
extensions of the principles and aspirations represented by the
postal banks system. It will never pay the banks to create the
impression or to permit the impression that they are allied to fight
the whole people — and all this may be and is said in a perfectly
friendly spirit to the institutions concerned. "/'\u25a0'

K. LANE in his address to the international railroad congress at
Bern*, Switzerland, took pains to remove the impression that the
newly enacted law for the regulation of trans
portation in this country was a radical depart
ure in legislation. The principles on which
that law is based are of long acceptance in
„ European countries. This nation is, in fact,
nearly forty years behind the movement in this relation. Mr. Lane's
position ami the principles on which the new law are based are
supported by the elaborate findings of a British royal commission,
announced as long ago as 1872. A synopsis of the principal con
clusions of that commission will make this clear, to wit: V
The British commission recognized the fact that the private capital
which was invested in railways was entitled to protection, but that it was,
I nevertheless, an investment in an enterprise of such a character that the
public copartnership in it had constantly to be recognized; and that this
copartnership arose from the fact that the, public had, through the in
strumentality of its law making power, conferred upon these private cor
porations many quasi governmental privileges and concessions. As the
railway companies exercised the sovereignty of eminent domain in the
construction of the roads, and substantially exercised the taxing power
in their operation, there was no well grounded reason for a complaint
on the part of these corporations if the public insisted on becoming an
active, a 5 it has been for many years 'a dormant, partner in the conduct
of these vast enterprises.
This is a clear and simple statement of a principle now recog
nized and acted on by every civilized nation. There is no disposition
anywhere to treat the railroads unjustly or unfairly, but. they can
not any longer be permitted to exercise without appeal, supervision
or regulation the power to impose taxes on everything the people
•ase. The sooner they accept this condition loyally the more har
monious will be their relations with their customer?. Moreover;
they may be assured that there will be no going back from the
position here stated.

THE condition that confronts New Orleans in relation to Me
conflict over the site of the Panama-Pacific .-exposition is stated
as to its first essential requirement by Congressman Estopinal
of that district in these words : -
We must go to Washington and show them

Francisco will not stop . the fight. They arc'-.
going right ahead.
* — .. '.We must raise the: 57,500,000 a's fixed; by the
house committee on industrial arts and expositions.^- -There is uo doubt
New Orleans
Must Do First
that that sum must be raised. I believe the south ought -to assist in this
There are tw.o things we must bear in mind, and the first is that we
must get the money. Then the second is we must work — work without
stopping. We will have a hard battle before us, and every effort must be
made to pave the way to a successful conclusion. San Francisco has not,
by any means, stopped fighting." ,
Yes, indeed, they must raise the money, and it must not be stage
money either or depreciated bonds. But progress in this essential
matter appears to be . disastrously slow. . There is, it appears, a
rooted objection in New Orleans to "passing around the hat," but
they come out strong on "smoke" and "smokers." Still you can
not build an exposition plant on a foundation of social functions
and tobacco scented air. ; ..--..
Mr. Estopinal asserts" that: the south is united in support of
New Orleans in this affair. Well, if the result must turn on sec
tional feeling we are likely to find the west pretty closely united
in favor of California. Quoting from the- Denver Post: * ;., \
Vlx. Fred H. Bostwick, writing from San Francisco, urges that Den
ver's commercial bodies take action and see to it that the Colorado dele- <•'*
gation delivers its votes to. our great Pacific coast neighbor. "Think of r
the enterprise of this city," he says, "which in a" public meeting of two
hours raised over $4,000,000, soon raised it to $5,000,000, arid Jhen, inside
of 24 hours after congress asked for $7,500,000, wired that the increase of
$2,500,000 was ready. This, to my mind, is a great chance for Colorado
to show her friendship for California, and to reap much benefit from the*" '
transcontinental travel which it will stimulate." .
Mr. Bostwick is exactly and absolutely right.
California will draw support not only from the Pacific coast
and the mountain states, but likewise from the middle west. But
all this may be postponed until? after New Orleans- fulfills the pre
liminary requirement of raising the $7,500,000 which congress : has;
named as_ the first condition of indorsement. When that is done
it will be time to talk about other matters. '

States nary during tlie war of the rebellion?
The annual report of the secretary
of the navy for 1865 shows that at the
beginning of t.ie war in 1861 there
were 7,000 men in the navy and at the
close of the war the number had in
creased to 51,500. The- force In the
navy yards increased from 3,854 to 16,
880. This latter was exclusive of about
an equal number employed In private
shipyards under contract for the gov
ernment. During the" war 20S vessels
were started for the navy and nearly
all were completed before the declara
tion of peace. Four hundred and

Are American Children in
Serious Need of Spanking?
Dr. G, Hanley Hall, the President of Clark
University, Emphatically Says Yes
EVERY one doubtless has heard that
nearly all men, married ones es
pecially, smilingly say they hold
in i£ not in practice, the old
Spanish .saying that
A dog, a woman and walnut tree.
The more you beat them, the better they be.
And if there is any truth in the sen
tence, which .of course no woman
would be prepared to grant, would the
same rule apply to children?
Echo from the east answers "Yes."
in the person of Dr. G. Hanley Hall,
president of # Clark university. Worces
ter,. Mass., who "is responsible for the
statement, made in a public address
recently in Colorado, that American
children are not spanked enough and
that' a little more corporal punishment
would work marvelous and beneficial
Have we not all seen mothers who,
tired, nervous and overwrought, -*re
eternally from sunrise to sundown giv
ing their children a thousand and "one
smart little slaps, when one good
spanking, with much force and some
little moral persuasion on the side,
would have done the work early In the
day after, say, the third offense — if
they believe in that form., of bodily
punishment, that is? And on the other
hand, have we not all seen the honest
eyed little youngsters, who learn to lie
for fear of parental beatings and are
in a continual state of terror, mixed
with their natural ttffection, of the
next blow, which may be harder than
they think they deserve?
The question of sparing the rod and
spoiling the child is one, that is con
tinually, being agitated and one which
has to be practically worked out in
each individual case. Where on« child
can be ruled absolutely by kindness,
another possessed of more animal spir
its may need a judiciously adminis
tered whipping or two, until he learns
who is master, his own strong will or
his 'natural guardian. In speaking of
the subject Doctor Hall said:
"I do not believe in too much flog
ging, but .it should not be abolished.
Americans protect their children too
much and it makes them precocious
and disrespectful. A little spanking
now . and then reinforces the moral
purpose of the ch^ld."
But here the mothers of the nation
rise up in protest. Many of them ad
mit that when matters reach the climax
of being "too provoking" between their
offsprings and themselves they resort
to the old fashioned method, be it care
NOW that the hobble skirt is the coming fad. some bright, enterprising
genius with an inventive, turn of mind has an opportunity not only to>
earn a name for himself both here and abroad, but to make a fortune
that would tempt any one to leave the oil fields.
The women of the smart set are truly agitated over the tremendous diffi
culties that will descend upon them with the advent of the eccentric costume
that fashion decrees — a style that will be exaggerated and extreme within a
very short time.
v It has become a mathematical problem to those who are busily figuring
how far a woman can step in a skirt one yard wide, and a brain fagging prob-"
lem as to how they will get in and out- of automobiles, cars and their homes.
If Russell Bo;jue were only here he would instantly produce some clever de
vice by which. all of these insurmountable barriers would immediately be
overcome, but he is o;i his way east to patent something he has invented foe
an automobile which can never win for him the international reputation that
would an adjustable electric appliance for the relief of the hobble skirt faddist.
f The pole universally used by the firemen might be a practical means of
egress for the athletic woman ridiculously clad in the ankle bound skirt, bu^d
the return trip is the cause of the anxious cry for help.
The time seems to be approaching when a woman will be asked to "go
out for a hobble" instead of a walk, as her mode of locomotion will hardly
be described by the latter term. /
The shop keepers, dress makers and tailors are not in favor of the scan{J
gown, as they require such a short measure of material, and there are even
protestations from Collector Loeb, who will be unable to collect an interest
ing amount of duty on such flimsy scraps of wearing apparel.
It is to be hoped that the dowagers and the corpulent, both young and]
old, will not shock our sensibilities or subject themselves to inevitable danger
by'falling victims to the Paris as there are. bound to be accidents and
fatalities before our heretofore unimpeded women can adapt themselves to
the fettered style that will require constant and uninterrupted concentration*

run to teach a child "not to fear tha
devil, but to love God." and those who
have made a direct stfudy of children
and child nature will add that ruling
by the rod is ruling by a strong pas
sion that ought to be eliminated— tht»
passion of moral cowardice.
That spanking in many cases foster:!
deceit has been proved time and again,
and yet opinions on the subject con
tinue to be divided. Where one man.
boasts that his whippings as a small
boy never hurt him, another •will tell
you that they were nearly his ruination,
and a discussion of the sort generally
provokes «. storm of criticism, for and
against. After realing 'Doctor Hall's
address I asked a married man for his
opinion on the subject:
"I don't believe in whipping kids.** n*
replied, "nor in hanging murderers.
Firmness and Justice should rule andl
not physical force."
-"And yet." another will argue, "don tt
you think it kinder than sending a
child supperless to bed or shutting him
in a dark closet or practicing some ono
of the other little cruelties invented to
take the place of the rod?"
Doctor Hall, in his statement, men
tioned the "precociousness and disre
spect" which he thought characterized
children not sufficiently spanked. By
this undoubtedly he referred to th«
lack of discipline noticeable in so man^
American homes. But why need It be*
the discipline of the rod. except in most
extreme cases? Why can it not be &
rule of "justice, tempered by mercy."*
not a reign of brute force nor superior
physical strength, but one of tolerance,
affection and gentleness, that will -do
more in the end toward the rtght form
ing of a disposition than all th« whip
pings and severe corporal punishments
