BECAUSE of a provision of the direct primary law that can vnot be eliminated as Jong as a well established line of supreme court decisions stands, several persons defeated for republican nomination have received the nominations of other.parties through the "writing in" process. In most instances the candidates who Only a Hessian Would Take 'aM Fake Nomination received the nominations of parties other thart their, own did not seek them. The ridiculous "doodle dees" nominated Charles F* Gurry for governor with a total of 12 votes. Francis Y.Keesling for lieutenant governor with 18 votes ami J. : 11. Scott, incumbent, for the board of equalization With 14 votes. : v Acceptance of these unsought nominations might enable these republicans to tlcprive the republicans who defeated them at the primary election of a few hundred or few thousand votes, as the case might be. Since these men are decent citizens and decent republicans they have not only refused to consider these nomina tions, but have arranged to participate in the fight for the election of their successful primary opponents. There is another sort of politician. lie wears a republican label when that label means a job. The thin veneer of party loyalty disappears the instant that party refuses renewal of a pass to the pie counter. From San Matco county The Call is advised' that District L\ttorney Joe Bullock, repudiated by the republicans, purposes to fight for his official scalp in the role of a socialist. "His name was written on two socialist ballots,, wherefore Bullock, defeated with the republican machine, becomes the socialist candidate for district itUorney, backed by all the forces of indecency that strove unsuccess iiiHy to put him on the republican ticket. In Sacramento county Grove L. Johnson, bellwether, **for the llerrin republican machine, arid evil genius of the assembly for years, has become a prohibitionist. Johnson's conversion to the prohibition faith involved nothing more than his repudiation by the republicans he had betrayed and the writing in of his name on a single pro hibition ballot. . : •/: \u25a0• '\u25a0• ••••\u25a0• \u25a0. '\u25a0' \u25a0 " Xaturally, only such political Hessians as Joe Bullock and Grove L. Johnson are sufficient!}* lost to every sense of political and I>ersonal decency to accept suclj nomination. Their acceptance of liiose nominations involves something more than brazen confession of political .prostitution, and dirty ; - politics.' Such confession they made long ago by betrayal of their unwilling constituencies. Everyman whose name was printed on the republican primary ballot swore that he was a republican. He swore that he intended to vote the republican ticket at the ensuing general election: He submitted himself to the will of the electors of the party he claimed as his own. He bound himself in honor, and common decency to abide by that decision, and as a partisan to lend his every endeavor lo the enforcement of that decision. . ; • Unhappily evasion of that pledge is not a crime against the law. The law was made to fit judicial construction of the constitu tion. It expressly provides for such evasion by political drabs, devoid of cver\- sense of personal and partisan decency. No law can prevent reprobation of such infamy by every right thinking citizen. The republican nominees from Hiram . W. Johnson down to the candidates for constables in Siskiyou and Imperial counties were chosen by the body of the republican party. No boss dictated their selection. They are the people's candidates. : They are entitled to the loyal support of all decent republicans who believe in popular party government. The defeated republican accepting the nomina tion of a party whose principles he has sworn to oppose is on a par with the defeated party candidate who proposes independent nom inations for the sole purpose of avenging his own hurts at the expense of the party to which he professes allegiance. Both merit the scorn of self-respecting men.. \u25a0 : ;' -;_' : : ; \u25a0 Q EPRESEXTATIVE NEEDHAM of the sixth congressional J~X district writes to the Modesto Herald a letter in which he x x pledges himself; to vote against joe Cannon for speaker of ; ';\u25a0; the house, thus accepting the popular verdict of the : - republican party in favor of what he ; prefers to call the "progressive movement," j possibly because; he does not like the shorter — _L. and: uglier ''insurgent"; but Aye need not quarrel over Aords^ Mr.: Neejiham says : • The new movement in: the republican party, which I prefer to call progressive— rather, than by any other name— was so . overwhelmingly. : indorsed at the recent primary that it. is but fair that those in sympathy .-.•with us main purposes, or those .who in good faith accepted them, should be 'given full opportunity in . convention and party committee to make good, free from the hampering influences or opposition of those who may not sympathize with Or accept the outcome. Mr. Xcedham pledges; himself to work faithfully 'for the election of Hiram Johnson, like a good party man, and thus goes on to explain his position regarding Cannon:. : • There is one conclusion, however, whicKfl reached long since, and . which has been known to many of the leaders of the party throughout ' the district, and, since it is a matter of much discussion, I fee.l it my\luty \ . to make it known to my constituents at this time, and that is that I shall not support., in the event of bay re-election as a member of the sixty second congress,. Mr, Cannon for. the speakership of the next house. X.--- ! }; reasons for this action- I shall give more in detail in my opening speech 91' the campaign. It is sufficient- to say .now that my determination -in this respect was. formed long-ago. It is not the result of any pique, -disappointment or soreness. I have no personal feeling against Cannon,' but I. sincerely believe that it is to the' best interests of the republican " party that a change in the speakership be made. My determination in this regard not only coincides with my own judgment, but I believe it to be also the overwhelming judgment of the membership of the party throughout the country. \u25a0 ; • . . : -. Mr. Cannon had an excellent opportunity to render a real service to the republican party by declining to be a candidate for the speakership of the next, congress*.' and thus relieve the party and its congressional of embarrassment. He could have said that as his candidacy was an embarrassment to the party he would relieve that embarrassment by withdrawal;; but as he persists in being a candidate, T shall oppose . his election in the republican caucus. The Call congratulates Mr. Xcedham on his diagnosis of- the They Are All Progres* sives Now EDITORIAL PAGE OF THE CALL Excitement Among Prairie Do^s political situation. He has been to a considerable extent the bene ficiary of important favors at the hands of Cannon, but he recog nizes the accomplished facts and wisely holds himself at the orders of his constituents, whose useful and able representative he has always been. They are all insurgents now — that is to say, progressives. MAYOR McCARTHY is distinctly right in his criticism of the park administration in this city. We have indubitably been spending too much money on the parks lying north of Market street, or rather, the parks in the southern half — roughly speaking— have not had their due proportion of attention and improvement. As the southern parks are intended to /supply the needs of the most congested quarters of the city the present apportionment is both unwise and unfair. For instance, the park in the neighborhood "of the Mission high school is distinctly inferior in the way of public conveniences. Some thing has been done to meefthe needs of this populous district and the results are seen in the extensive- popular use of" the park, but there is still great room for improvement. . V In his message to the park commissioners the mayor says : Taking. Market street from tlic bay to the ocean as the line of division, we find that out of a total of thirty-six parks and squares, exclusive of Golden Gate park, twenty of those parks or squares are north of Market street", thirteen of which are improved, two with, some improvements and five without any improvements; whije on the south side of Market street there are only a total of sixteen public parks and squares and but five of these are improved, two with some trifling improvements and nine without any improvements at all. The parks and squares which are improved north of Market street present in every respect a beautiful, finished appearance, embracing as , they do everything that goes to make a park really', beautiful, healthful and useful from a park standpoint. On the south side, embracing the great Mission district, . the five parks so far improved do not present that appearance. South park, Garfield square, liernal park and the Mission park are by no means as presentable from *the standpoint of care and attention given them. It is a condition that calls for attention and a change of policy. San Francisco has always been liberal and generous in making appropriations for this field of work and the city is justly proud of its park system, but it is plain from the mayor's message that the south side has not had its fair share of the money and the accom modations. Doubtless the errer will be corrected. Unfair Treatment of the South Side VICE PRESIDENT SHERMAN has been "called in" by the republican congressional campaign committee and his speaking dates in the middle west have been canceled. Like Uncle Joe Cannon, his support has come to be regarded as an injury rather than a help to any cause which he may advocate. His course in seeking to discredit Mr. Taft by endeavoring to create by Subterfuge the impression that the presi dent had made an alliance with the petty and corrupt bosses of New York state and the exposure of this conspiracy by the president's open letter have simply put Sherman out of politics for all time. To show how Sherman's plqt is regarded in his home state we may quote from the New York Times, which says: Meanwhile no self-respecting American can contemplate without a . sense of mingled annoyance and mortification the spectacle that is made by the vice-president. Certainly he has a right to differ from Mr. Roose velt in the politics of his state, and to seek in any conflict upon which he ' may fall the support of Mr. Taft in any honorable manner. But no one can read Mr. Taft's telegram to Mr. Sherman and his explanation of the reasons for sending it, with his account of Mr. Sherman's conduct, and not feel that the vice president was underhanded, treacherous and deceiving, that his motives were mean and his methods despicable. It is not a pleasant thing to have to contemplate a man in his high position thus discredited. /. These expressions are not too 'strong and they may serve to explain why Sherman is out of politics by the order of the. campaign committee of his party. Why Sherman Is Out of Politics WITH oil selling at. 3o cents a barrel for crude the plea in confession and avoidance made by the war department for refusing to use this fuel for operation of the troopship fleet HowtheWar Department Wastes Money ing a forced comparison of the fuel values of coal and oil the war department declares that oil at $1 a barrel is no more, economical than coal at $3.45 a ton of the sort, that can be bought.in Japan at that price. . - *We took occasion to show in these columns that even -at the arbitrary price figures stated by the war department the demonstra tion, of economy in the /use of coal was unsound : Butwith oil selling at less than half the 'figure^quoted by the department the case made in that behalf becomes silly to a degree suggesting some other and concealed motive for. the continued use of the more expensive fuel, y . ~ In" the present condition of the market we do not doubt that the department could make a£'en year contract for an ample^supply of fuel -oil at 50 cents a barrel. • .. v. ;;; , . - : * on the Pacific is made to appear \u25a0 painfully absurd and. untenable. Of course this .is not a normal price, but as the war department professes to be buying oil at $1 a barrel it is a pertinent question to ask. Why? By mak- Traffic Agents Are Off for the Beach Transportation Clubs Will Join in Annual Outing THE California association of traf fic agents and the Transportation club hold their joint outing at Santa Cruz for three days, beginning today. A special train will leave the Third and Townsend depot of the Southern Pacific company, and through the courtesy of that company and its passenger officials a special time, will be made on the trip to' the beach city. The occasion, • besides being a Joint outing. Is the annual meeting of the traffic agents. George Fraser is slated to become president for the next year, but there was a rumor around railroad row yesterday that an attempt would be made to break the slate and that a crowd of "insurgents" would place Harry Landerkin in nomination. Sam Booth, sometimes called Samuel, is one of the leaders in the program of entertainment. He is booked for a monologue and it will be a good one, according to the following bit of re hearsal overheard yesterday: "I saw a letter the other day from Carleton Crane to Jack Inglis. It seems that Jack had sent Crane a bot tle of hair restorer and Crane acknowl-^ edged it a month later by saying, 'When I received your hair restorer I had three bald spots; now I have only one.' "I 'received a letter about several carloads of . freight that were to be handled partly over the Northern Pa cific a few days ago. The letter was signed 'Yours trury, T. K. Stateler, per Simmons.' '.' : • Booth says he has a lot more, all better' than these. \u25a0 M. C. Markham, assistant to. the vice president of the Missouri Pacific, reached this city last night in a pri^ vate car. He will leave this morning - t for a trip over the Western Pacific. Grove Ketchum, traveling passenger agent of the Washington-Sunset route, with headquarters at Los Angeles, is in the city for a few days. E. E.

" v THE new Pacific Union club, which is the old Flood mansion made over, is nearing completion. One of its architectural advantages is the broad, many windowed ell, which commands a view of the Mason s \ rce * entrance to the Fairmont. Here those members who formerK* graced the Post street windows of the club may gather for long, afternoons of reflection while they watch the passing shbw without. It is an attractive picture. The only thing lacking is the passing show. There is so little of tt on Mason street. ?•- \u0084:-; \u0084 \u0084 t - ' Such a semicircle of windows in Fifth avenue would furnish endless diver tissement. lii Mason- street they are wasted. Fifth avenue is one ot tne attractions of New York clubs. Mason street can offer no comparison. The University club, commanding also a view of the Fairmont, is littw ; better off in the matter of a passing show, while the new Bohemian clut> win have none at all in the hollow it occupies. - ..«.« . \u25a0 i-» t / The days when such connoisseurs as Tom McCaleb. Delphtn Delma^ Joe Quay and baron yon Schroeder daily watched Mn the impersonal spirit, of critics the grace and beauty of the Post street panorama mayjicver DC revived. :,-.•-;* ;v; v • . " T . .. The famous corner window of the old Bohemian club, where cie George Bromley, George Nagel and kindred souls were wont to meditate upon life as viewed from their'coign of vantage, is a thing of the dead past. The Sutter street windows of the vanished University club have no counter parts in Powell street. A feature of San Francisco club life has been eliminated. This may have a far reaching effect. Environment is a potent influence. Tastes may become modified and entirely metamorphosed. Those who once joyed in a Pacific Union view of Post street will seek their entertainment in the upper windows of the new club with the outlook over bay and city. It is not impossible that after a few years a visiting Pacific Union member might even find the Fifth avenue windows of a hospitable New lork club monotonous and unsatisfying. ./•-- ; • • • One of the prettiest engagement teas of the season was given yes terday a # t the home of Mrs. Ile'nry A.
