r I aHE significance of Hiram Johnson's nomination for governor
I as part of a great national movement for the regeneration of
the republican party and its emancipation from reactionary
control is given recognition all over America.
The movement is not local, but general, and
reaches from sea to sea. New England calls
to the Pacific coast, and. California and Wash
ington answer back with enthusiasm. This
m f
is the way the Chicago Tribune sees it:
n^ i
lowa. Kansa?, Wisconsin, Michigan.
New Hampshire. California.
Progressive republicanism marches across the continent. The call
of the middle west is answered from New England and from the slopes of
the Pacific. There is no sectionalism in tl\is great movement. It is
American. Tt is bounded only by the conscience of the people and quieted
only by that profound and stable common sense which the greatest of our
statesmen have relied upon and obeyed.
Progressive republicanism represents and expresses the effective will
of the great sane mass of the American nation, east and west, that govern
ment of special privilege by special privilege for special privilege shall not
usurp the place of government of and by and for the people.
Those who stand in the way of this movement, who seek to evade it,
or to defy, will go down — are going down — before its advance. Aldrich
. and Hale are gone. Cannon is on the threshold. Tawney may be gone'
tomorrow, or if, like Dalzell, he lingers, it will not be the Tawney of
3-esterday. Boutell is as good as gone. McKinlay and Calderhead and
. Gardiner are of the political past. And in place of these are coming men
who owe nothing to the old s\'stem and everything to the progressive
purpose of the American people, who have foreseen and led the pro
gressive movement, and who will achieve its objects.
The movement everywhere has for its purpose, the redemption
of the government, state and national, from the control of predatory
wealth. In California it means the elimination of the Southern
Pacific political bureau as the governing power. In congress it
means that the wholesale bargaining of corrupt interests* at the
expense of the whole people must cease. Theseallied interests are
the reactionary forces which the progressives have set themselves
to fight. If evidence were needed to elucidate the situation in Cali
fornia it would be found in the attitude of those consistent organs
of the predator}^ interests, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Oakland
Tribune and the Los Angeles Times, which are neglecting no oppor
\u25a0•"'"ity to stab Johnson in the back.
It need not be disguised that Johnson has a fight ahead of him.
lhose powerful influences which have for forty years controlled
the government of California will not surrender without a struggle.
They have money in plenty, they control newspapers and they have
organization perfected and disciplined by long use and hitherto
unchallenged power. Johnson must win if the people are only true
to themselves, but they must not go to sleep, secure in the sense
that they have no conflict on their hands.
There will be an effort to beat Johnson because he has dared
attack the Southern Pacific political bureau. It has no other mean
ing, and his defeat would be hailed as a triumph for the reactionaries
and a lesson to those who might come after him.
What
Johnson's
Fight Means
_^ A. WALCOTT, a member of the conference committee on
charter amendments, writes in explanation of the direct legis
• lation provisions recommended for ratification at the coming
election. These are intended to protect the
\u25a0 people against any legislation or grant of fran
chises that they disapprove.
The initiative chapter gives .them the
__ right to enact or repeal any ordinance -that
trie supervisors are empowered to enact or repeal. The referendum
chapter gives them the power to veto any ordinance.that would
confer a franchise on any person or corporation. Mr. Walcott writes :
The referendum is presented in especially good shape. You know
as we all know, that the big problem before us is to protect the public
rights in the Market street, Sutter street and other big franchises when .
they fall in. Securities having a face value of over $80,000,000 have been
issued on the roads built under them, and $60,000,000 of this capitalization
IS-vP^!£*l S -vP^ ! £*? anchlSe values - The Physical properties could be replaced for
520,000,000.
r - When these franchises fall in they will be at the disposal of the super
visors, unless the charter is amended. And we are confronted with the
danger that a corrupt corporation could afford to pay a corrupt board of
supervisors $1,000,000 a vote and still reap a handsome profif.
The amendment in this relation provides for a compulsory
referendum in the case- of public utility franchises, and this is
undoubtedly a useful feature, as "It automatically relieves private
citizens of the burden and. expense of getting up petitions for a
reference to popular vote.
The experience of other cities has- shown that the privilege of
referendum is often used for trivial purposes or to secure delay in
the enactment of laws designed to regulate special interests^ while
on the other hand people are r often slow to invite the hostility of
powerful influences by taking the initiative in "any movement to
shut off the grant of public property to private interests without
adequate compensation therefor. The proposed amendment by pro
viding for an automatic reference of these franchise grants obviates
this difficulty. . . "

' I 'HE letter of Secretary Norton, written by Mr. Taft's direction/
j concerning the allotment of patronage to insurgent, congress
men has been given an unhappy reception by the. press of
the country. The New/ York World; for
example, calls it "the N most > amazing letter

That
Extraordinary
Inspired Letter
EDITORIAL PAGE OF THE CALL
prejudice, but the independent republican press finds little to com
mend and something to regret in the letter. The Providence Journal
puts it this way:
Looked at from any. point of view, the remarkable letter sent by the
president's secretary, Charles D. Norton, to "a prominent republican leader
of Iowa" appears unfortunate. «..
In tfie opinion of "politicians at Beverly" this letter is not a conces
sion to insurgency. But, coming as it does so soon after the Maine,
election, -it will, be interpreted as such. It even makes: the^ president*
absurd. No one can imagine: Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Roosevelt giving"
out a communication of. such a character at such a time. But Mr. TaftT^
obviously knows neither when to resist nor when to yield.' The time for ,
him to have been firm was when the, protected interests were besieging
him at Washington; the time for him to have worked with the insurgents \
was when they were manifesting, on the floor of congress, an anxiety
equal to his own for the success of the principles enunciated in the last
republican national platform. This belated promise to be good reveals
a state of "blue funk" that is about tqiially-amusing and pathetic
A Dcs Moines, la., dispatch tells of the effect created in that
state, as follows:
Indications are that if President Taft intended his announcement
regarding patronage for insurgents as a peace offering, its mission will
fail. Insurgent leaders declared tonight that there can be no compromise ,
between progressives and regulars based upon a distribution of federal
patronage. The Dcs Moines News, which is Senator Cummins' personal
organ, says editorially: .
"President Taft has-been led to believe that all there is in the pro
gressive movement in lowa and elsewhere is the matter of a few offices. He
is mistaken. lowa progressives do not care a rap for office. The sig
nificance in tKe whole is that. Mr. Taft confesses he is beaten. The
confession is^ interesting as showing what manner of man ,he is for
president, but is of little value otherwise." " V : X : -;.v^
The letter^of course, is a confession that -'Mr. Taft blundered
and put his money on the wrong horse.; It is scarcely fair now; to
reproach' him with: trying to put. himself right, but he has himself
to "blarneTby reason of his tactless jntimation that the insurgent move
ment was actuated by nothing more creditable than a : desire ; to
get close to the pie counter.

Letters From the People
ARCHITECT MOHIi PROTESTS
Editor Call: The accusation by the
acting official of the head of the bureau
of architecture that. I demoralized the
bureau is very, unjust.
The progress reports covering the
short period that I was city architect
show the office work and the school
buildings that have been strengthened
so as to render them safe are standing
monuments of what I accomplished.
One of the chief remedies for the
present demoralized condition of the
bureau of architecture lies in the ap
pointment of a city. architect instead of
an acting city official..
• If the commissioners thought I de
voted too much time to the examina
tion of structural features the subse
quent developments 'must have altered
their opinion. ;
It. is distasteful to me to appear
boastful, but it is a, matter of pride
to -me^_that in spite of "the unappreci
ativeness-of the commissioners the fact
remains that in only two months' time
I succeeded in rendering safe several
large public schools, besides preparing
the new.- work and maintaining the
regular routine of that large office. >'..:
.If there had been more executive
freedom. allowed me considerable more
could have been, accomplished. The of
ficials of the administration know by
whose orders appointments and dismis
sals .were made. A great many were
projected by 'me, but to no effect. Yours
respectfully, N. W. MOHR.

The Morning Chlt-Chat
I HAVE evolved a slogan for housewives to be used
.during the fall, house cleaning.
House keepers who observe that festival, please,
attend. I don't know whether you'll like it or not, but
her© it" is.
"Clear house as well as clean house!"
How does that appeal to you as a slogan?
It seems to me if every housewife in the land would
adopt that for her fall house cleaning it would be a hap
pier land..
A newspaper friend of mine was recently sent out
to. get up ah article on the necessity or v non-necessity of
this fall upheaval.
Some 'of. the women whom she interviewed indulged.
Some" didn't. One who didn't, in explaining her freedom
from the habit, let fall, such a pearl of wisdom — no, "nugget of good common
sense" would describe it better — that I borrowed it.
"In our house we aim to keep clean, not to become clean," she said, "and
one of our methods of keeping clean is not to have the house cluttered up
with' any unnecessary things. I thoroughly believe* that if thinking women
would make up their minds to have nothing in their houses but useful things
and those of. value because of association, so called drudgery would diminish
to the vanishing point and this semiannual upheaval would not be needed."
Now, housewives, please don't just say: "Here is some more of that house
keeping talk from some one who doesn't know anything about it," and refuse
to read any further.
Please be open minded and unprejudicedly consider if it isn't possible
that the lady was very right, and then query how well your house stands the
tese^Hj
V That is, how much there is in your home besides useful things and those
that have associations? -
Useful, of course, ought to include beautiful, for beauty is certainly use
ful. A well made chair-rests your body. A truly beautiful object rests your eye.
With that definition of useful, test one room in your house. If it's an
average house I, know just about what the result will be. Why not make the.
object of the fall cleaning to make it capable of passing that test?
I know a very sensible woman who one day decided that^fhe was being
possessed by her possessions instead of possessing them. Thereupon she
went through her house and, standing before each object, asked herself if
she were getting her troubles' worth of utility and pleasure out of it. If she
had to say no, she got rid of the object, and, according to her testimony, she
lived happier ever afterward.
One of the greatest tendencies of life is accumulation. In many ways
it-is a good tendency. In. other respects it is bad and needs to be checked,
and this is one of them.
To know how to throw off, as well as accumulate, is one of the needs of
a happy life. If you lack that ability, why not try this very fall to acquire it?
. In other words, instead of letting your house cleaning be the regulation
taking out and putting back, why not adopt the slogan:
""Clear. house as well as clean i^ -^» /\u25a0\u25a0>
house." '* V o^-*^- L-* Cii^\JLOjQ*«V
