IX his address to .the national republican league in New York
Mr. Taft reviewed the record of accomplishment under his
administration, and, with the single exception of tariff revision,
the showing is eminently satisfactory. A great
tdeal has been done in the way of constructive
statesmanship, and Mr. Taft now for*the first
time gives the progressives in the party credit
for the important part they have had in
Not very long ago Mr. Taft intimated that the progressives
had fought the administration measures before congress, and this
is true to the extent that they did cause the amendment of bills
introduced at the instance of the cabinet. It may be added that
these amendments were plainly in the public interest, and in fact the
legislation on which Mr. Taft now justly congratulates the party
was chiefly shaped by the progressives, although they were numer-
This is an interesting as well as gratifying change of tone from
the period not so long ago when Mr. Taft permitted Attorney
General Wickersham to read the progressives out of the party.
It is a manifest improvement in spirit and should make for harmony
A somewhat similar change of tone is noticeable in the case of
the party congressional campaign committee. This body is made
up of extreme standpatters and they selected an array of stump
speakers of the same stripe. It proved a disastrous policy, and
everywhere that these orators, from Joe Cannon to Duncan McKin
lay, made their appearance defeat followed. Now they begin to
realize their mistake and are engaged, they say, in swapping horses
in the middle of the stream. Representative McKinley. of Illinois,
who is chairman of the campaign committee, issued last week an
authorized, statement of policy in these words: .. , ....
The members of the committee attending the conference authorized
me, as chairman, to say to the press that the statements that have been
made in the newspapers and otherwise to the effect that the national re
publican congressional committee would not render assistance to candi- •
dates classed as insurgents is not only an unjust reflection upon the poli
tical integrity of the committee but is absolutely and unqualifiedly untrue.
This is very 'well and is a laudable change of policy, but the
committee is having some trouble about putting a muzzle on Uncle
Joe Cannon. He broke loose the other day in customary vein at
the Illinois state convention, and now he threatens to invade New
\ ork state with alarums and excursions.
The original plan was to send out Cannon in a special car for
an extensive stump speaking tour in company with James E. Watson
of Indiana, another violent standpatter of the old guard. Th,ey were
to invade the doubtful districts, but now the committee seems
understand that an invasion of this kind would have no other effect
than to resolve any doubts that voters might have in favor of the
democratic party. In view of the recent numerous failures of
standpat congressmen to be renominated this absurd plan is now
abandoned, but still Uncle Joe is not satisfied and threatens to
invade New York state in an automobile if he is denied the pomp
and dignity of a private car. Republican candidates for congress are
praying that he will keep away from their districts.
Change of
Tone Concerning
the Progressives
THE city of Galveston, like San Francisco, went through -a
tremendous calamity. San Francisco • was wrecked by fire,
Galveston foy water. Each has been working hard to repair
1 the disaster, but although Galveston has
done wonders it has not been able to keep
up—the pace with San Francisco. A state
ment of what Galveston has accomplished is
• given:
In September, 1900, just after the census figures for that year had
been completed, a calamity befell the city almost without parallel in
modern history. In a few hours the winds and waves of a gulf hurricane
overwhelmed the city, sweeping 6,000 of its population to nameless and
unmarked graves and utterly destroying property estimated at $18,000,
000. Had the city never recovered from the blow there would have been
nothing surprising. Its resurrection from the grave has been one of the
modern marvels of American achievement. Within a year the'eityhad
been reconstructed, mainly through the energies of its own people, and
$4,000,000 had been spent in permanent improvements. Since then the
work has been steadily prosecuted, until Galveston is today. protected by
a sea wall that is a wonder of engineering, and it has maintained its place
as one of the foremost exporting ports on the Atlantic coast. Today its
population is a bare 800' below the figures for 1900, but when the victims
of the storm are eliminated from the count, it is seen that. Galveston* has
actually progressed at a rate which in the circumstances is remarkable.
Galveston must be congratulated on its energy and courage,
while at the same time it is true that the losses there by flood were
insignificant in comparison with the damage by fire in San Francisco.
In both cities the losses have been repaired, but here a much greater
work was done in -a shorter time, and while Galveston has made no
appreciable gain in population it is announced by Director Durand
that San Francisco will show an increase on the census figures
of 1900 with higher ratio of growth than that for the decade between
1890 and 1900. In; spite of all its troubles San Francisco maintains
and even improves the pace.
A Tale
of Two
Cities
IT is not surprising to find Mr. Frank Short of Fresno starting up,
musket in hand, from behind the breastworks of the Southern'
Pacific company to defend the title of that corporation to oil
lands held under the congressional grant.
The surprise would come were Mr. Short not
to be found , somewhere on the firing line.
His industry in thjs relation is multifarious
and persistent. : •"
Mr. Short's appeal in the present instance is ; chiefly a plea in
behalf of the "innocent purchasers," who are near relations of the
famous ''widows ".and orphans," in whose name and behind whose
shelter corporations were long accustomed to plunder the peopled
These "innocent purchasers" are in the present instance merely
another name for the Southern Pacific company, whose subsidiary
corporations they are. They took hold of the lands .with thel full

knowledge that if they were found to contain minerals the title
under the grant would not hold good in law.
In a letter for publication Mr. Short raises the point that
petroleum is not a mineral and therefore that the exception expressly
made in the congressional grant does riot -apply. This may be a
matter for experts to decide, but it is not a reason- to deter the
government from seeking to ascertain its rights in the premises.
Mr. Short is likewise unceasingly active in his endeavor to put
life in the absurd state conservation commission, which Governor
, Gillett stuffed with corporation agents, including, among others,
Mr. Short. This commission has never met because the legislature
provided no appropriation to defray the cost of. its valuable delib
erations; but Mr. Short is persuaded that if the body could be given
some sort of life it might be able to make a report that would put;
out the forest fires of next summer and incidentally to father some'
sort of quasi official propaganda in support of the proposition to
turn over the Sierra -water powers to the state.
If it be contended that the sessions 6f the commission would
cost something, doubtless Mr. Short knows where the money could
be folind. He is the most indefatigable public servant now visible
above the California horizon.
MODERN battleship target practice is somethingVlike working
out .an equation: in algebra. The target is ; the unknown
- quantity,and the gun pointers shoot at an object some seven
-, miles away that they can not see. The target
is below the horizon for one standing at
sea level. ;
Operating a big gun is*"an elaborate and
- complicated process, as may be gathered.from
a description of the recent battleship practice off Point Comfort,
Va., at which some world records in this field were made. The
story runs : •
One of the principal factors if not the principal factor in naval gun
nery is fire control. Many elements enter into this, but in the last analysis
the personal equation rules. No instrument for range finding is accurate
and in saying this it is not meant to detract in the least from the value of
i that device, but in controlling gun fire it has only an initial value in giving
quickly the approximate distance of the object aimed at. The fall of the
shell and spotter at the masthead do the rest. The spotter notes the fall
of the shot, estimates •how far short, how far over and what the deflection
right or left of the target is. In the system now in use telephones" or
speaking tubes tell the subplotting station how many yards to raise,
lower or deflect the next shot. The men in the plotting station from data
" at hand, such as the speed and bearing of firing ship and the; speed and
bearing of the enemy, together with abbreviations of the spotters at the
masthead, work out, with the aid of a mechanical device, a prediction as
to the exact* position of the enemy 50 seconds ahead. This prediction is
sent to the gunners by electricity and appears oh an indicator. The -guns
are trained on the elevation and deflections thus worked out and are fired
by electrical order of the ordnance officer from the bridge.
Shooting
at An Unseen
Target
One serious defect characterizing the tests was that it was
not found possible to test the accuracy of aim at a target in a
rolling sea. It was found that the type of target in use, being of
flimsy construction, went to pieces under the buffeting of rough
water. No doubt more durable targets will be provided for
THE appointment of John Seymour to be chief of police gives
excellent promise, and it is up to Mr. Seymour now to: make
that promise good. He has an honorable record in the police
department and has had plenty and Varied
experience in dealing with the criminal element
in all its multifarious, branches and windings.
As a detective Mr. Seymour ranks among
•the best. It was his work largely that brought
Theodore Durrant to the gallows, and in another field of criminal
endeavor he was successful in putting behind prison bars Chris
Becker, the. most skillful arid dangerous forger in America.
\Mr. Seymour has a serious task on his hands and a grave
responsibility. He. will be subjected to every ; sort of temptation,

MARY ASHE MILLER
Each week sees a gathering of club
presidents of the city at the California
club to discuss the coming district con
vention and make arrangements for
that event. It is doubtful if anything
has ever taken place here which will
; bring about more thoroughly that fel
lowship between the different federated
organizations of- the city, which Is de
sired most ardently by true clubwomen.
The exchange of Ideas, the personal
discussion, the knowledge gained by
each of. the other's club, will prove of
Incalculable value in producing club
spirit during the coming year.:.
The coming theater party for the
benefit of the entertainment fund is ah
assured success, and | the demand for
tickets bids fair to produce disappoint
ments later for those who have pro
crastinated in the matter.

Editor Call r I am writing you to
commend the publicity that you have
been giving the movement to transfer
the present tenderloin district from the
heart of the business district. As, you
know, the tenderloin is now scattered
over several blocks adjacent to Mar
ket street, the main artery of our city,
and through it the" principal car lines
pass," carrying thousands of people who
are forced to witness sights as bad as
any seen on the Barbary coast. Made
bold by. lack of restraint, the cafe pro
prietors, until recently, have kept their
doors wide open,; inviting men, women
and children to witness the dancing
and 1 scenes of t revelry. which are a
stench lnithe nostrils of decency.
You and many of us realize the harm
that must come to the younger element
by seeing such occurrences- daily on
their \u25a0 way to., and from work. Young

I toil with my hoe in the garden, and talksmiths
come to me and say: "Wiegehts, my dear sir!

we talk half a day. The evils con

us unless we reform, and stand
up for true conservation "
then I get impatient and warm.
I turn to my hoin' arid rakin\ and soon have the
cockleburrs thinned; for labor will bring a man
bacon, but argument's nothing but wind. I toil at
the sawbuck all morning, and spellbinders come to
my door, with many a message of warning, and
slogans and pibrochs galore. They talk of the
bulwarks in danger, they say the escutcheons are canned; "your
vote/ they declare to me, "stranger, may rescue this perishing land. «
They talk and they boom and they beller, they yawp till each larynx
is skinned; but labor means coal in the cellar, and argument*^
nothing but wind. I go to the village' with butter, and eggs that
my fat hens have laid; and statesmen come to me and^ mutter:
"The outlook sure makes me afraid ! I fear that the eagle is moult
ing! The star spangled banner's in hock! This country is in for a
jolting unless people list to my talk!" I shake off the long distance

AND
ARGUMENT
The Morning Chit-Chat
A FEW weeks ago 'some of my readers and I had a
little discussion as to whether it really paid, in
. terms of masculine approval and admiration and
love matrimony, to be a thoroughly nice girl.
My assertion that it certainly did was taken excep
tion to by some girls who said they had tried it and
found it didn't and who thought that "Be good and you'll
be happy" would have to give way to the modern ver
sion, "Be good and you'll be lonesome."
Maybe the following letter will interest them a bit.
"Andnt your chit-chat about the forward girl, I want
to i give the testimony of one who, though not a prude,
tended rather toward prudishness than forwardness.
"I- was conscientious over many things to the point
of. where I felt that I was missing much of the fun that
other girls had, yet for indulgence in which my conscience troubled me out of
all proportion to the pleasure derived.
"When I was away on a visit I met a young man who showed me some
attention from a sense of duty to my hostess, but very soon one of his invi
tations brought me up standing before my conscience. It was an invitation
which 999 girls in a thousand would have accepted unhesitatingly and which
in itself involved no forwardness; merely was in opposition to my idea of
what was right for a Christian to do. I sent my refusal and explanation with
the feeling that it was the knell of our friendship and that he would read it
with~a sneer; but to my great surprise he replied that, while he disagreed
wjth me, he respected me for doing what I thought was right.
"A year and a half later we were married and for the last four years I
have been happier than in all the previous 25. No husband could be more
considerate of his wife nor more devoted to her," and still we each hold our
opinion about the matter referred to. For the girl who longs for 'a good
time* at alfnost any cost. let me quote Ruth MeEnery Stuart: 'For a steady
diet, day in and day out, there's nothing like a quiet gentleman. The. sun
isn't exciting in its daily uprisings and goings down, but it is good to live
along with. Pyrotechnics are for holidays.' "

"No, I don't like her a bit," said a young girl recently, when I asked her
opinion of a prominent alumna of her university.
"Why?" I wondered. Most people did like that particular woman rery
much. ...
r : have a feeling that she doesn't like me."
Wouldn't you think she would have been ashamed to give that answer?
Disliking people merely because one thinks that they do not approve or
like one seems to me a weakness that one onght to be unwilling to admit
to oneself, to say nothing of telling it willingly to another person.
Occasionally I catch myself disliking a person for that reason and I anijk
thoroughly ashamed.
Is that ever the reason for any of your likes and dislikes and do you
think it's, a very nice one? """"!•) . Tt /""* \u25a0
