r I ''HE situation oT the Chronicle in the present campaign is
| obviously painful, but in a way lends itself to humor. Our
contemporary does, not like the republican candidate for gov
ernor, and detests the platform adopted by the
state convention, but has not the courage 'to
say as much. The paper therefore is suffering.
from a severe case of congestion of the emo-
. . tions. for which the only available relief is in
niggling criticism and half veiled sneers, as for example :
Many s man running for a high office, if he finds a local platform in
ft! s way, has planted himself instead on the national platform of his party,
at least far enough to define his politics.
Possibly, if Mr. Johnson finds his state platform too democratic, he \u25a0
will ground his republicanism on the other one and have the laugh on Bell
There is no telling.
And it is too early in'th'c. campaign to ask Mr. Johnson what he means
to do about it. •
Later he may be trusted to define his politics, after the manner of
normal candidates for the office of governor, and let the state and the
parties know, in some unequivocal way. where he stands/
Just now, of course, he is busy with crushing out what glimmer of
iite may remain in the octopus. When that is done the time may come
v.iien Mr. Johnson will make it clear that the republican party, in electing
him, will not be faithless to its time honored principles.
. Mr. Johnson and the state platform are in the fullest accord
with the national platfornv of the party. The present insurgent
movement, which undoubtedly dominates the party today and will
direct its policies and name its candidates in the' future, took its
rise from the fact that the standpat element, of Which the Chronicle
is a belated survival, being for the moment, in control of congress,
used their power to disregard the rule laid down by the national
platform and cooked up the Payne- Aldrich tariff in the shape of a
series of corrupt bargains with the special interests. If this is a
compliance with "the time honored principfes" of the party it is
high time to reorganize that institution, and it is time for the Chron
icle to get out or fall in line with. the authoritative declarations of
policy, formulated by the accredited representatives of republicanism.
They say "Godrhates a coward/ but we imagine" that the feeling
is mo;e probably one of amused contempt. If the' Chronicle means
to support Bell for governor it should have the' courage to say as
much and get out and fight in the open. Xor need our contemporary
suffer from its fears that Johnson will not declare himself. He is!
no trimmer like the Chronicle. His platform is one of common
honesty,. which may help to explain the Chronicle's sneers and silly
mgglirig and its lament over the passing of "the time honored prin
ciples" of dishonest practice. . . . : \u25a0 • '•' '
The
Chronicle's
Painful Position
THE Oregonian discourses learnedly on water transportation
and is impressed with the belief expressed -by a local railroad
magnate that^there is no real antagonism between the railroads
~~ and the sea carriers. 'The; Oregonian puts it"
in this wise: £
Every now and then some alleged trans- .
portation expert from the east comes among us
with the .information that the Panama canal will
-J be of no benefit to the Pacific coast so long as
railroad companies and private hrms and individuals own docks in the
seaports on this coast. This warning against private ownership of docks is .
sounded ip the behei that the railroads are antagonistic to water traffic,
and especially to that which will be handled by the Panama canl. There
may be isolated cases where water transportation has affected the business
of the railroads, but the tendency of the water carrier is to. develop new
business and assist in handling low grade freight which is never attrac
tive to railroads. . . j ; \u25a0 <
We do not know much about those vague and nebulous affairs
described as "tendencies," but we have a long record .pf unfortunate
experience right at home which indicates very conclusively the
complete freedom of the Southern Pacific and its kept corporation,
the Pacific Mail, from any tendency to welcome sea transportation
as a help. The coast line of the Pacific Mail is maintained for the
single purpose of discouraging transportation by sea and that object
was successfully accomplished for a long series of years. This
company is now engaged in *n. effort to break down the competing
line to be established by Bates & Chesebrough, so 'that we may
conclude that it has not yet been hit 'by' the' "tendency" which the
Oregonian professes to have discovered.
There is no doubt at all that the railroads will seek to occupy
the field to be opened by the Panama canal, even as they now control
the water traffic on the great lakes, but they will not tie able to.
accomplish this purpose without a hard .struggle, and an important
factor in this conflict will be the existence of harbors like San
Francisco, whose water front is not owned by the railroads!

T T. is reported from Washington that the navy department has
I decided to convert the collier. Prometheus, built at the Marc
* ' island yard, into a tank steamer for carriage of oil to be used as
fuel for the fleet. This, of course. -would mean
the establishment of oil supply stations at
the several naval bases of operation on the
Pacific and possibly on the Atlantic coast. \u25a0
The report is not yet confirmed, but it
carries an air of probability. The experiments of the department in
the -use of oil fuel for making steam have shown excellent results
and^it is indicated that oil burning apparatus will 'be installed on
the smaller units of % the fleet. The. Washington Post summarizes
the results of the experiments thus:
Enough has been done to prove the efficacy, economy -and reliability -
of oil as a steam maker on locomotives and smaller vessels to make it
morally certain that with the informati6n that will be obtained from a
rigid investigation into the causes of the last accident, the proper adjust
menUand control of this agency must result. Admiral Melville who
summed up the experiments on the Mariposa, was .convinced that it -
wouldwtork as well in the navy as it has done elsewhere in so many cases
When it is known that one pound of petroleum converts sixteen
pounds of water into. steam at 212 degrees, while only ten pounds of
water arc so converted by one pound of good Pittsburg coal— and this in
actual practice. in the early: stages of: its experimentation— some idea of*
the. efficacy and economy of the process will be apparent. Then, too, the
case of carrying and handling the oil as a fuel is a consideration of more
than ordinary importance. --....- , v

This fact was long ago established for all, enterprises in the line
of manufacturing and transportation of ..conarhercial purpose. The
only limitation on this condition is coiicernecl;Jcvith the question of
supply, and on the Pacificfc^a^ps.h^C^Mll I '^^-9"^ t on tnls Tl^ttef^
It is established that the California oirfreld AviJßfurnish an unlimited
supply of fuel oil for a much longer^eriods-than the life of ' any

THE automobile proves to be a powerful influence in promotion
of the good, roads movement. This week in tlijeire is
a conference of^delegates from the automobile' clubs^pf; the
~ 'Pacific I coast . states, r-^whose purpose' is to
•promote the plans ,for a" practicable road all
« : the way from*:Puget sound to San Diego\;, It
would be WoVm'M^lion^-of dollars to?Wash
_ ington. Oregon" and ? Calif6rnia to have a road
of this character constructed to make" safe and comfortable ridmg
for tourists in automobiles.'* : .(.."*"' /, \u25a0 '\ *\ . •"-
The same influences are at wo'rk, in other states. In
for example, the Atlanta Constitution makes note of progress
growing out of the annual all around Georgia r good roads* automobile j
contest. Concerning. this institution with the* ponderous- name thei
Constitution says: . I .','\u25a0' '\u25a0\u25a0''*' - '
It is not -a mad scramble for speed, but is pre-eminently; in the"*
nature of a sociability, run. • ?
It is, in reality to be a caravan for the encouragement and the ocular -
demonstration of the bank account value of good roads.
The reconstruction 'of the convict lease. -system ' gave the \u25a0 present. J
epidemic of highway construction in Georgia its first srreat impulse. « . \- ;
Following that development came . the first all -Georgia contest,'
inaugurated by the Constitution last fall, preparations for which .covered
practically all the year, from January 1, ;and the effect of which is still -
increasingly visible. "
To-day hardly a county* in the state, is too small to have its own
executive enthusiasm over decent highways. Through direct appropria-? \
tion. and sometimes the bondin-g method, community after community is -'
instituting arid broadening road and bridge systems that shall not only
return immediate dividends, but that will t bear an even larger harvest in
the future and for prosperity... . • \u25a0
If is a good and v effective plan that California might profitably
copy. It is a social excursion and not a scramble or a race: Indeed,
the Constitution lapses into epic fervor in describing the whole souled
southern hospitalities'that attend* the demonsjtration. It is a com
bination of faith and works on 'wheels.';'.'

MR. TAFT once more seals the-"doonr of "the pork barrel."
Indeed, that institution of national politics has-been sentenced
to capital punishment many times, before, but still it shows
remarkable vitality. It is' the product of con
gressional "log rolling,;' which the Chronicle,
for example, defends as a highly moral prac
tice. Another authority, more courageous and
. more candid, defined the < institution as the
product of "the cohesive power of public plunder," and itis toihis>
aspect of the matter thai Mr. Taft addresses himself. ;In^other
words, "the pork barrel" means the waste of public money> It does
not matter that in a majority qf cases^he appropriations are honestly
and wisely made. That is no apology for waste permitted, as pay
for x votes in congress.- Air. Taft says: , ',
The days of. the pork barrel" should be numbered. .The country is
roused against corporate or corrupt control of the legislative agencies, but
it is doubtful whether, the constituencies are yet able to preserve the
higher obligations on the part of themselves and their representatives not
.to use thejr votes in common to 'appropriate to the part that which
belongs to the whole. .'. . : , .V t .-. . . : :
In signing the last" river and harbor' bill, which had many of the
-characteristics of previous bills, I indicated, to congressthe prospect'that :
another bill of that character would merit a veto. '
.It is ;not much use to ; lay down principles if practice does- not
correspond. Nobody will pay much attention to protests when they
do not take shape in action, and ; thV'practice of log 'rolling, for
unnecessary: appropriations will continue just as long as presidents
sign bills that they ;; know^to be wrong but hesitate to veto' because
of some supposed political exigency.

\ \7 T. ROBINSON of Mokelumne Hill is a man who knows
V V the. woods, among which he has passed 1 a large part of
ti£M - 1 °his life! and he tells the Calaveras Prospect his plan for
the prevention of forest fires. \ Colonel; Robi
nson's method, approved by. experience, is not
1 unlike 'that propounded by T. B.H; Walker,
the'lumber magnate, and indeed it is the same
method that Indians and later the sheepmen
followed. Colonel Robinson writes :
Last fall a year .ago' l burned^over a tract of forty acres of land along •
the south fork of the Mokelumne river. . The land was covered with a
dense growth of pine and underbrush, with a great accumulation of pine,
leaves and dead wood. ' • - y
At the proper time in "the late fall and at: a* time when the early rains
had moistened the underlying, dry rubbish, I set fire at several points,' -
and by reuniting the places the fire would skip, I managed to burn off the
entire tract, doing no damage to the standing timber, but killing much of
1 the underbrush. , '. ' • , ; ;
. In this way., by^burning the ; leaves and dead wood at an auspicious'
time, cither in the early spring or late fall, : before": everything gets so dry, '
millions on millions of timber and other property can be saved. At such
. times thcrire can-easily be kept under control. l . v~i"
As a result Colonel Robinson states that no fire could be started
to make anyuserious headway in the burned 'over territbry} How
often the .burning over. process would be necessary he ''dqes / not sa)',
but apparently, the immunity lasts, more than a year, v ' : :
This is a: subject of the highest .importance in view 'of the
enormous annual losses from forest -fires, with which; when once
they start;; the forestrxv service appears to be quite -unableito cope

The Morning Chit-Chat
WHAT is. there about marriage'" that makes folks
forget they were human Once, too?
The .pretty little girl with i" the big married
sister wants me'to write on that- I •
She says she's sure that there's lots\of young folks
like herself who'd be" pleased to know why it is that when
their sisters and girl friends get married and- settle down,
no matter how desperately flirtatious, how daringly in-,
discreet and convention hating" and fun loving they were
before the the ceremony, after it they almost invariably 1
develop into Madame Grundys.
She is very plaintive about it. £1
"It's bad enough when they're first married*," she
sayl»/ ; ,"but after the babies 'begin to come it's worse.
Then they're hopeless."
' - /'Before my sister was married she used to tell me all her love affairs and
.flirtations and I used to sympathize and # be interested and try to smooth \
things over when she needed it— keep mother from worrying when she came
home from canoeing or motoring later than mother liked — and cheer her up
and help her out when she got into any silly little scrapes.
"Well, by and by she found the right man and was married and settled
down and began to raise a family and , in the meantime I grew 'up antf began
to have flirtations and love affairs of my own.
"And, of course, at first I took them straight to sister. I thought shed
sympathize with me and help me out when I needed it.
"Did she? Guess not.. My dear, she was shocked at the tiniest little
things. Instead of helping me out or smoothing things over for me, she was
always telling mother that I ought to do this or that— all things that she
always did before she was married. .Once she was at the "house when I came
home from a canoeing trip an hour later than I expected and instead of telling
mother that it took a long while to get the canoe in and the cushions put
away and that the cars are, so apt to be late she worried V^rse. than mother
did and had mother all worked up. - \* •'- . i-;; •. ~
."And then she thinks it's so terrible to be frivolous and wanting to frot
about all'the time. As if she wasn't twice as bad before she met Jack.
"And then, before she was married, sister always used to be 'so ready* to
stand-up for a girl when any one was running her down. She said one ought
always Jo^give a girl the benefit of-the doubt unless you absolutely knew
something against her. And now she is just as quick to be suspicious and
just as unwilling to believe that a girl is good, in spite of appearances, as
any one. J
"And it isn't' just sister, either. She's such a splendid girl in most ways
that I thought maybe that was a saving fault that she- had developed to keep
her from being too good to live, but when two of the girls that I chummed
around with were married and changed the same way, I saw it was just the ?
fatal ceremony. -
"Why is it, do you suppose?. j
"Does it have to happen, or is* there any way of dodging it?"
I wonder. " ."^\ '
