THE example of the Hibernia savings bank in taking a part of
the municipal bonds for building the Geary street railway will
no doubt be followed, when occasion --arises, by other strong
financial institutions in San Francisco. The
banks are custodians of the people's money
and stand in the relation *of trustees for their
depositors, who make up the substantial part
of the citizen body. When the people of the
city as,a municipal organization decide to undertake an important
enterprise and offer a gilt edged security for the money needed in
this relation it is the part of wisdom for the banks to fall in with
the plan and supply the funds as long as they can do so with perfect
safety in the matter of the investment.
"it may be true that the bond market is for the moment inactive,
but there is plenty of money awaiting investment and it is the fact
that the savings banks of San Francisco could without straining
their resources in the slightest degree take the whole issue for the
Gearv street raihvav and make money thereby without risk.
The action of the Hibernia bank has created a good impression
on the public mind. It serves to dispel the idea that had some
acceptance — doubtless without basis v in fact — that the bankers of
this city were secretly hostile to undertakings in the line of municipal
ownership. We have already had occasion in these columns to
refer to this impression as injurious to the banking interests and as
probably unjust. It is well that it should be dispelled by positive
action on the part of the banks, and in such view this great financial
institution has done a public service in more ways than one.
THE new-treaty between Russia and Japan concerning the Man
churian railways does not materially change the "Status quo
ante, hut at the same time it is a specific and direct. reply to
Secretary Knox and a flat rejection of his
suggestion that these roads should be neutral
ized. By way of mitigation for this diplo
matic reverse it is pointed out in Washington
that the new treaty affirms and continues the
provisions of the convention of July, 1907, between" the same parties,
by which the territorial integrity of China was guaranteed and the
principle of the open door recognized. But in fact; all this is the
merest diplomatic flimflam of very much .the same "description as
the British recognition of Turkish suzerainty in Egypt. These are
tlie empty compliments of diplomacy.
It need not be doubted that Russia and Japan mean to divide
Manchuria. They are practically in possession as much as England
i% in possession of Egypt. The Chinese sovereignty exists merely
in name. Xo other result was at any time likely to come from
American intervention. The single consequence of Mr.. Knox's
interference appears to have been a hastening of-authoritative'defi
nition of the joint control already exercised by Russia and Japan.
It is sufficiently obvious that the^people who control the railroads
will rule the country. ..
As has been said, the new treat}' does not change the status.
It merely states a condition that has virtually existed since the con
clusion qi peace between Russia and Japan. American merchants
and manufacturers will doubtless be permitted to sell goods in
Manchuria, but they will have to. compete with the cheap. labor of
the orient and stand a higher cost of transportation. It may be
that there will be no discrimination in railroad rates against them
and that the Japanese will rely on their natural advantages to hold
the market, but it need not be doubted that if discrimination is
necessary to that end the control of transportation will be used to
effect that purpose. The Japanese and Russians regard ' Manchuria
as theirs by right of- conquest and they mean to hold the-country.
IT is just as well to regard with some suspicion. the news from
Nicaragua. .Much that comes to us from this source has its
insniration in the purposes of the American promoters of what
has been described as?a "banana revolution."
These people .would rejoice to .embroil the
United States in a quarrel with' the de facto
government of Nicaragua. They have already
succeeded in creating; among the Central
American republics a strong feeling of hostility to this government,
which they "accuse of a purpose either to- annex or dominate these
turbulent and troublesome commonwealths. ,
Allowing for all these considerations, 'it is nevertheless apparent
that things are in a bad way with Nicaragua: The -government' of
Madriz shows signs of resorting to the same policy that when put
in force in Cuba by Spain made intervention by this country impera
tive. It is reported, for example, that recourse has been had to
the reconcentrado methods that made the administration of General
Weyler so obnoxious in Cuba.
We quote from a recent Washington dispatch ':"-•
A repetition of the Weyler reconcentradb^system in Cuba, that
caused widespread criticism just before the opening of^the war with '
Spain, has been inaugurated in Nicaragua by the government authorities,
according to 'advices to the state department. Probably *S,ooo^ people in
the vicinity of Granada are directed to concentrate at, Granada, under
an order issued by: Sebastian Salinas, the political chief and* commandant
of the forces of that department. .. '," ;*
This order* as translated was published in.El Comercio,: a' Managua
newspaper, and transmitted to the state department- here, •» as follows: •
|tl^|Vyithin twenty-four^ hours from the present moment all theY
inh&bitants of the Mombachio ridge shall assemble at Granada, without
distinction of sex or'3ge. r - % •;
. "2. Persons not complying \vith this regulation shall, be_ treated as
revolutionists and, dealt with as such."
This news appears 1 to carry the marks of authenticity, and;
EDITORIAL PAGE OF THE CALL
coupled as it is'with the reports of ill treatment of American citizens
in prison, can not be disregarded by. « our state department. At the
same time thereHs' nothing in the affair that a wise and forbearing
diplomacy is -not competent to deal with. The situation creates an
opportiunity for Secretary Knox'to retrieve a reputation which recent
international happenings have somewhat damaged. .
IF the chemists/ as seems probable, have succeeded in finding
means to neutralize;. or denature the. fumes from smelting plants

A big smelter plant may provide employment for anywhere
from 2,000 to 10,000 men at good' wages/ and if it should be \u25a0com
pelled to.shut down* or relegated to the desert that would be &
serious loss to the home market, i^ great smelting plant was designed
for location in South "San Francisco, but s work was stopped after
a largeNum of Vjioney had been invested because of A the objections;
entirely legitimate in the circumstances, of people with homes on
the peninsula. \u25a0 But if these objections can be removed by chemical
science the undertaking might very well 4je resumed to, the great
profit- of \u25a0 this neighborhood, v,; ' \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0"\u25a0 : ;'.' v \u25a0\u25a0 • v

*TN O you desire a visible manif esta-
I, J tion of your soul throbs? Are you
*"T - too fat, or perchance, too thin?
Have, you a. suspicion that you are be
coming "muscle bound" and ;> stiff In
your "joints? - Do you^think you might;
be more sinuously graceful and more
insinuatingly Do you want
to express with all the physical energy
of your being your appreciation of .the
spring, thje. .summer, the seasons gen
erally, things musical from Gounod to
ragtime, the. home comlngof your .true
love.j-youj- % rage with existing condi
tions—-anythingy everything? Or do
you seek for a parlor trick? Do you,
want to.be a pioneer, in -the latest fad?
There can be but one answer to these
varying wants. You must, dance.
"Not" the I common or garden variety
of waltz or twbstep, or even the-ener
getic, hypnotic barn dance. No,- but
tlie real- thing — not of necessity classi
cal, but more comprehensively, esthetic.
Professionals may no longer have a
monopoly of 'the stellar roles of terp
sichorean soloists. .Every one who is
not Incapacitated physically Is going to
have a try at it. It will be/more per
meating than the fad for reducing flesh
and quite as strenuous. Young women
who have not quite forgotten the
"fancy dances" of their school days are
said to be practicing vigorously in pri
vate in order to get in trim _ for" the
new things to be sprung a little later.
San Francisco has done something of
these esthetic gambolings In the dances
of the kirmess and simpler forms were
introduced in "Professor Napoleon,"'
but there is ..some -little deliberation
about going in for it vigorously here.
New York. Boston, Chicago even,
have, their smart sets and other: sets
practicing "one, two, three, tum-ti, turn,
hop, turn, skip, sll-i-i-de, six, seven,
eight, turn again,',' but here we,, are
waiting. Why? Surely not from lack
of ability, for Isadora Duncan and
Maud Allan hail, respectively, from
North Beach and the Mission; and they
could not have -cornered all the city's
grace and inspirational expression. Llt
tleMiss Violet Shawhan, the daughter
of the artist, who has never yet ap
peared professionally,, will follow in
their footsteps, I believe, and there are
several girls well known socially who
can make, the most bored of audiences
sit up and take notice when they-whirl
Into the center of the stage. -
j But soon the glidings, gy ratings,
sklppings, pirouettings, graceful or
; clumsy, pleasing or horrifying, will
begin. Two or three of 'San Fran
cisco's most exclusive dancing teachers
are in the east studying the estheticism
of their art and with the winter season
will commence the real work. There
are going to be a great many awful
results beyond a. doubt, but it is going
to be amusing and every one will have
unbounded confidence in her own grace
and 'skill. ,' \u25a0-\u25a0*\u25a0'

Important part dancing plays in phy
sical development and general well
Doctor Sargent, for many years la
charge of physical instruction at Har
vard, paid a glowing tribute to Gilbert.
the founder of the system whose grad
uates met. who had been head of the
department of esthetic dancing at Htm*
enway gymnasium. Harvard university.
Doctor Sargent spoke of the beauti
ful seriousness with which Gilbert
his art and of the importance
of* dancing as an educational factor
and its uplifting influences.
Dr. Robert "W. Lovett, an eminent
surgeon of Boston, dealt with the. phy
sical value of dancing and aald that
there was a constantly Increasing de
mand for some form of physical ex
pression to bring to perfection unde
veloped muscles or Impaired circula
tion by e^njqj-able methods. i
Of course, in Its fashionable aspect
there are things to be considered. No
one is going in for folk dancing alone
to the exclusion of all other types of
estheticism- There will be classlc» near
classic. Interpretative, emotional and
merely ridiculous. And how will thoy
dress for all of this?
Folk dances are supposed to demand
something approximating a national
dress, so- they seem safest.
But think of the others — isme ona
will be shocked all. the time when per
sonal tastes for dressing and undress
ing are gratified.

no "really nice girl" can exactly copy
