GOVERNOR GILLETT'S proposition to bond the state for
$5,000,000 in aid of the Panama-Pacific exposition will com
mend itself to the business sense of / the people of California.
The contemplated world's fair is a great deal
more than a merely local enterprise. It is
intended to bring tens of thousands of visitors
to California from all parts of the world. The
exposition will furnish Jhe occasion on. which
Gov. Gillett' s
Statesmanlike
Conception
will depend innumerable visits to the natural wonders and attractions
of the state, and it niust result in a thorough examination of our
industrial, agricultural and horticultural resources by the visitors.
The fair will, in fact*, furnish the kind of advertisement that Cali
fornia needs to bring increase of population and development of its
vast possibilities.
Of course, San Francisco has a selfish interest jn asking the
voters of other parts of the state to assume a third share, or rather
less than a third, of the financial burden, but this city is prepared to
shoulder something more than the other two-thirds. That under
taking seems fair, because, of course, this city expects to be the
chief beneficiary. The rest of the state will not lose any money, and
it is certain that the investment will yield large returns from the
advertisement and resulting influx of population.
The Call believes that there is an increasing spirit of co-opera
tion among -California cities and .communities, based on the under
standing that the growth and prosperity of local markets makes for
the advantage of the whole commonwealth and its' individual
constituents. We are bound up together, and as- one community
advances so shall the others profit. It is a wise policy to foster
nearby markets consuming the products on which the charges for
transportation must be comparatively light. It is far better for the
producers of the great interior valley and of the prosperous region
south of Tehachapi to be able to market their goods within the
confines of the state than to be compelled to ship them across
the mountains at great expense.
The proposition advanced by Governor Gillett, if it should meet
the approval of the voters, will mark an important advance in this
sense of state solidarity and the recognition of the fact. that the
prosperity of one section makes for the good of all. In the way of
promotion of good feeling among all parts of California and" the
spirit of co-operation this vote by itself should mark an important
advance. Outside communities will not find San Francisco back
ward in the work when their turn comes to ask for favors.*.
With a backing of $17,500,000 assured California will be. able
to finance the greatest exposition the world has ever seen, and
Governor Gillett should be given credit for a really statesmanlike
conception.

SECRETARY- BALLINGER will not 'resign under fire, but he
will resign. The majority of the joint committee of congress
will doubtless "exonerate" him fully, so that he can point with
pride to his ' vindication." So much is all cut
and dried and part" of the program. Ballinger
will then retire and will doubtless be given
as fine an assortment-of certificates of good
moral and political character as the organs can
Political
Atmosphere.

invent lor tne occasion. \
All this is part of the comedy of politics now in careful rehearsal
under the stage direction of Senator Fixit Crane, special distributor
of oil for troubled waters. When it is done President Taft will
heave a sigh of relief. He does not like Mr. Ballinger a little bit,
but politeness forbids harsh' measures.- The president does not work
with a big stick, but he usually gets his way.
Uncle joe Cannon is still cocky and still profane. He swears;
he- will die fighting, because he is of the old guard that never
surrenders, but the fiat has gone forth and his political finish is in
sight. Nobody wishes him any ill that he has not earned, but the
\»^ole country demands his political elimination. He could have
been driven from the speaker's chair even in the present congress,
but the thing was not worth while. Now even the "regulars" are
ready to drop him. and many of them, with fear of the polls before
their eyes, are pledging themselves "to their constituents that they
will not support him for Speaker again. Of course, 7 the insurgent
forces in congress must be materially increased in the next congress,
and Mr. Cannon himself has in ho small degree contributed to this
result by the silly campaign which . he made in Kansas.
Aldrich is down and out, Ballinger is on the way with such
consolation as "dignity" may afford, and Uncle Joe will be forcibly
extnided owing to circumstances over which he has no control.
There will be a clearing of the political atmosphere after November.
A CERTAIN Swami Trigunatita, whose ministrations are heard
and seen at the Hindu temple in this city, has prepared an
elaborate article to demonstrate in his own-words that "Hindu
labor is the. cheapest in the. worldl"^ Let his
major premise be admitted without question.
It did not need so many words for proof. The
Hindu laborer is/the cheapest as- well i as the
poorest article in the labor market anywhere.
Queer
Argument
For the Hindu
We do. not need the writer's testimony, that "these laborers" can. live
here as cheap as $3 a month/ nor shall we dispute; his assertion
that at : American wages they can save . 5,000 rupees in five -'year's^'
All this may be admitted without affecting- the /situation. '
By way; of further inducement the writer holds out"the hope
that "pretty soon we m ay find some of these changing their
turbans, nightshirts, pajamas and slippers to Hats', coats; trousers
and high shoes." Indeed, if they should "emulate' the! elegance of /"a
tailor's fashion-plate we can not see how/that would Vaffect -the
situation stated by the writer, who, characterizes his people^ as "the
cheapest labor' in the world:" '- ;. - :* ; J' ;
The Swami then rambles along-Av ith-a i superfluity .of i words about
EDITORIAL PAGE OF THE CALL
"the brotherhood of nations" and the opportunity of missionary
endeavor and the sacred soil of India and, so forth. It is a very"
curious screed, but leaves r us cold. When the writer labors/ to
persuade us that Hindu labor is a good thing for this country he
practically admits the whole case against himself when he" declares
that it is "the cheapest in the world."/ Indeed, it shouldrbe cheap
because of its quality, .but its admission -to this continent would
mean destruction of the American standard of • living; - The Swami
would bring us all down to the $3 a month mark. That would be a
new and unwelcome: sense of the brotherhood of nations."
SUCH testimony as has been given by Richard Ovee of Portland,
Ore., in the damage suits against the local 'fish trust should be
conclusive. If ever there was a case of conspiracy in restraint
The
Fish Trust
Is on the Run
Mr. Ovee came here with, a patented device calculated to cheapen
the cost of catching' fish and with that intention met the men who
have controlled the local industry and cornered the (market. He
was told by them in so many words that they; did not; want to
cheapen production/ They had cornered the market and controlled
the ; trade. Further they told him plainly that any competitor who
might have the hardihood to fight them would be crushed, and they
described to him the methods of blacklisting and boycotting by which
they had driven out of business one such foolhardy enterprise. —
The trust people made no secret of their methods and purposes
in their conferences with 1 Mr. Ovee. They believed, themselves
altogether secure from attack as- vvell as superior tothe law. They
might have so continued had not The Call, with the assistance of
District Attorney Fickert, undertaken their- exposure. They have by
this time discovered that the law has a long armi and- their money
is not likely to save them from punishment* as; criminals or :from
being mulcted in heavy damages in civil suits brought by men whom
they have oppressed.,/ s .

The Insider
Tells how the office of a bank cashier was invaded by a man

•wanted a check to promote amateur theatricals.
Unusual Visitor in
the Marts of Finance
confederate states' bill— and 6rcgg is cashier of the Crocker nationar-bank.
Fads and fancies and arts, as long as they do not affect the milling on the
edge of money or the portraits of our presidents on currency, do not interest
Gregg as' much as a canceled postage stamp of the week before last. He has
been at -the bank for 22 years,: counting money, lending money, handling
money, with, such -scrupulous rcare and precision and skill that during that
time he has risen in the institution to the office of. cashier, and has a ma
hogany desk with a vase of roses on top of it. Gregg may or may not know
that he has the vase of roses on his desk. , '\u25a0
' While Gregg was sitting at "his mahogany desk recently, figuring «p
the crude oil industry, in California and the rates of interest in the year 1924
if the crops continue, good, a small man was wafted in from Market street.
He; fluttered among the. mahogany desks and finally settled lit Gregg's elbow»
as perked.arid preened and fresh as a canary.. 6regg looked up. JThe appa
rition was '.unusual' in the marts of commerce, but the cashier was indulgent.
-;- "Ah,' Mr. Gregg," chirped the canary in melodious . cadence, "Ah, Mr.
Gfegg, you have just returned from Europe, I believe?" *' ? 1* '
/"No," replied Gregg; "never was in Europe, never saw, never heard of
Europe, except when we make out bills of exchange or letters of credit."
"My goodness gracious!" chirped the visitor, preening his purple scarf,
"then you are not interested in the venerable civilization of the old world,
in the old masters?" :// / -
Gregg asserted that what interested him most was interest. "I ihirik the
reason I hold this job i* because I never was in Europe and never took part
in the' older civilization," he stated, most explicitly.
* "My good fettow," exclaimed the visitor, in a canary flutter, "but you are,
Mr. Gregg, I know, interested in amateur theatricals."
"Amateur theatricals {"shouted Gregg. "Good Lord! I never took part
in an amateur theatrical show in my life." ' / '/
"But you are a patron of the arts, of -the .drama! of pageantry, of the
graces and the merry masque/ Now, I am about to organize an amateur
theatrical entertainment, and I would like to have you take the — "
He got no further. A draft from Chicago swept out of an opened safe
and the canarymah was wafted out of the office, out of the atmosphere of
prosaic mahogany. i ' \u25a0'
Gregg was left amazed and silent behind his adding machine.
"What did your talkative friend want?" asked one of Gregg's colleagues.
. "I don't know what he wanted," answered Gregg; "but he needed a
check."/ ;/v :
Gregg has now got a package of salt to put on the next canary bird
that is wafted into the bank. And he wonders who sent the first one.
Mother Present at
Parting of Friend^
Baker was present yesterday when her son, Ray, said goodby to Mrs. Mar
garet* ETrhersonMcKim on the deck of the liner Tenyo Maru.~ Mrs. McKim
and -her traveling companion, the baroness de Chauboulon. sailed away to
gether, and as the steamer pulled out into the stream Ray Baker and his
mother stood at the end of pier 34, Ray waving his straw hat and Mrs. Baker
watching Ray.
Before the steamer sailed Mrs. McKim said that she was going away for
a rest. She laughed at the idea of regarding Ray Baker as a serious matri
monial prospect. The idea of matrimony at all seemed to amuse the pretty
lady, who said she was tired to death, but didn't look it.
"I will be 'back in October." she said, "and until then 1 4 want the news
papers to forget me. I am going to try to forget them. I need a rest, and I am
going to have it. I am going to have breakfast in bed every day until we
reach Yokbjiama. I'm not going to get married. I'm not going to write a
book or 'do anything of any interest to anybody. I'm just a tired girl going
away to get a long rest."

THE SMART SET
RODERICK MACLEAY, polo player, popular bachelor and brother of
Mrs. Joseph D. Grant, who distinguished himself by winning a prize for
his Scotch kilts at the Mardi Gras last year, is adding further luster to
his name by a daring venture has has just embarked upon. Maclcay has
gone to' sea in a motor boat. Two intrepid friends accompany him. There
were once three men who went to sea in a tvb — but. the parallel is too painful
to pursue further. Theirs was an untoward fate.
The Macleay party left Portland last .week and are now motoring up the

down the Columbia, venturing several times across the bar. The success oi
these trials inspired him to attempt the Alaska tgp.
