The ring is now trying to buy space in the interior press to make votes against the bond issue by spreading ''poisoned ngvy's." It is the old J^me thzt defeated a similar proposition, at the last.general election by persuading" interior voters that they would have to foot the bills. It is not without significance that the Chronicler should -have so •opportunely "discovered" that the city has or may have dormant title to other lands on the water front. If this "discovery"' were well founded it should not and does»not conflict with the proposition to buy the Islais creek lands for .the state, but it may and no doubt will be used ( by the lumber ring to confuse the situation and doubtless "will be advanced as an argument to prove that no additional lands Of course, the ownership of China basin, whether it is vested in the city or in the state, can affect in no possible way the needs of the harbor for more dock room. These lands, to which the claim is advanced on behalf of the city, are already improved and occupied under lease, the Santa Fe railroad being the most important tenant. The title is a matter of detail that can affect the commercial needs of the port in no possible way. The chief value and significance of the que/tion now raised will lie in the use that may be made of it by the disseminators of poisoned news. If these China basin lands belong to the city, well and good. The city will be able to take care of them when the facts are established, but it seems like a suspickms fact that this "discovery" was delayed nearly forty years only to be sprung at a moment when it may be used as campaign material for the lumber ring to confuse the minds of voters not familiar with the facts,. , . We need not be surprised if other belated "discoveries" are made as the campaign progresses and the ingenuity of the lumber ring agents comes into further play. The people of San Francisco thoroughh- understand this question and appreciate the methods m use by the lumber ring. So much was demonstrated by the overwhelming vole cast in this city in favor of the proposition at the last general election, but interior voters are naturally enough unfamiliar with its details and bearings and the situation, therefore, easily lends itself to the purposes of a campaign of misrepresentation waged by selfish and unscrupulous interests. The Call believes that this campaign of the lumber ring will fail and will meet with sharp rebuke from the people in November. The situation is better understood than it was before the last general election, and the. voters of interior counties will not be willing to do 'an injury to San Francisco for the advantage of a selfish and corrupt ring. The Lumber Ring's Familiar Tacfpcs THE alliance between Wall street interests arid the democratic campaign in the several states, noted by The Call's Washington correspondent, has been in evidence sporadically for some time ~~| past. It has now become general. and is seen in operation all the way i from New York to California. All the reactionary elements everywhere . . . 1 and the newspapers run in that interest,* from the Chronicle in San Francisco to the Inter Ocean in Chicago and ! the Sun in New York, are knifing the republican candidates. The ! pack is in full cry everywhere, directed by a single purpose. They can see no good in Hiram Johnson on this side of the continent They are attacking Stimson- in New York, and they all agree in , hating Roosevelt. In New Jersey,. in Ohio, in Indiana, as well as in - New York and California, the 'same campaign is being waged, and •apparently the chief object in view is to destroy Roosevelt as a .political leader. The endeavor is not altogether rrew, .but never - before was it pursued with such angry bitterness. Naturally the campaign to down Roosevelt is well financed, so well that the prophets put New York in the list of doubtful states, for it is there that the chief energy of the attack will be concentrated But' they will know that they have had a fight on their hands before they get through with the colonel. If they beathim jit all it wilPbe by sheer weight of money applied in the crude and elementary way of buying votes out of hand. ' • ' .\u25a0 .The guarantee of financial aid has made the democrats in New ' York so confident that two weeks ago they were \ certain they -\u25a0 could not «lose the state. But they reckoned * without : Roosevelt and his fighting quality. The Providence, R. 1., Journal, wliich takes^an independent view, thus sizes up the situation: . ;\u25a0' Vi?-^ 1% Now, those who dislike Mr. Roosevelt most can -not deny that' tlii«; surprising transformation from- republican despair to republican hone an<L .from democratic exultation to; democratic doubt is wholly d'i^' to him.

Roosevelt's aggressive^ aid. Ji£ . ** .7 v^; ; . ; _ .'• \u25a0 , ' ..In New York the legislative; scandals/ have provoked such" disgust with the machine. that, jiad it controlled the convention, -its' defeat at the polls was* as certain^ as anything humaii can be. But this objection to the republican state ticket.'docs; not now hold. -The machine has been defeated and humiliated. Does the man who accomplished this"*. feat deserve nothing in return? Are the; republicans who; had good reason to hate the machine going to desert a. purified party? It isa strong 'argu ment, and Mr. Roosevelt niay be expected to make the most of it. Curiously enough, the reactionaries are making a greaCdeal of the tariff plank injhe Saratoga platform.- That'plank was reactionary enough to suit the most hidebound of the old crowd, and it 'amuses to hear them find fault with it because it is "not in harmony .with: the creed of the insurgents, whom they hate." These tactics are!merely an example of the^argumentum ad hominem directed at Roosevelt 'in the' hope of proving him. inconsistent. But"-.' as Roosevelt has already. repudiated the plank the situation becomes trying fprAVall street. They have been abusing their own creed in the^Kope of fastening it on the colonel. ' /**| ?:''-: V CAREFULLY written statement issued, on behalf^f ah e L\ Standard oil company treats of current overproduction and * intimates that an outlet must be sought^in foreign markets for the refined products. Of course, this. f means cut prices in those markets, and after-going into? the figures" of overproduction the^statc ment goes on to say: • 7 ?/\ '\u25a0\u25a0'•<>. In. view of the condition? and circumstances 1 ... " as explained above, the Standard oil company x has inaugurated a campaign to increase the world's .consumption of refined oil. The level of prices for refined oil today in the United States is lower than at any time during recent years, and a? a direct resju'ltVofT' these prices the consumption of refined oil in this country is increasing. The same policy is now being actively pursued abroad, as, especially, in the far east, with its enormous population, there exists an unusual oppor tunity of increasing the consumption of refined oil, and in order to accomplish this, considerable reductions in prices, not only in the Vast, but also in Europe, have already been made. '- - This move is partly due to the fact that English enterprise in the oil field has become very aggressive hi the last year. Inthat; period some seventy new oil companies have been floated in 'London and they must get to work- to justify their existence. - None of themliavc yet invaded the United _ States field, but' they are" going after the foreign business of the Standard, which is "now compelled to take measures of self-defense.- ; \ h _ /V; Itjs altogether anjntercsting confession that the oil market has got out of control by the trust and the production. of: the : raw rnateViaf has grown so great that this powerful financial and industrial organization is turned back on the ancient law of demand and supply, which we had been taught had become obsolete. In fact, the jaw was obsolete for forty years in America because the Standard was able to limit the supply by its control of prices and markets. \u25a0 Oil Market Out of Control THE admirable and perfect discipline of the little ones of the Mount SCJoseph's orphan asylum supplies a tribute to the wise/careful and painstaking methods of the, sisters in charge. -Heretwere T" : 430 children, of tender age roused from sleep /by an alarm' of fire at an early hour -of the morning. In; ordinary _;: circumstances- the situation would have brought on a disastrous _^_ and^ mortal -panic. -Thereyis no telling 'how many lives would have been sacrificed in the most distressing fashion.

"Our kids." we cried, "miist live » on crusts, and wail like thunder, .because- r the: blamed immoral trusts are out of plunder." We -4 gave the tariff law a jolt that made it shrivel ; each orator unloosed his bolt in terms uncivil.

"I have no credit in the town," said Colonel Seller, "and all because I'm trampled down by Rockefeller!" "I've been evicted from my home— chased aut by high rents, and I'm doomed in want to roam, by haughty tyrants!" And then the man who owned the store where we'd been talking remarked: "You fellows make me sore— you'd best be walking! Your arguments are thin _ as foam,. and weak and spindling: and while you yawp your wives at home are splitting kindling.

It seems to me that to one -person who would be im proved by thinking and moving and acting more quickly, there are nine who would be made more desirable citl2ens by thinking and moving and acting more deliberately. Olost of us go off half, or at the most, three-quarters cocked, the majority of the time. A man told me~recently of a stenographer whom he was about to dismiss for just that fault. , "I tell her^ of something I want done," he said, "and she seems to understand me perfectly. She assents to _. all my directions. I say, 'Are you sure you understand just^what I want?' She is almost Insulted by my doubts and rushes off to start the work. A "In five minutes she is back to interrupt me at whatever I have focused my mind^on, with half a dozen questions that she has thought of. "She's a nice girl in lots of ways but I want some one who doesn't go off i half cocked most of the time." Emerson, in one of his essays,- speaks of "afternoon men" who upset the scheme of things by being always tardy, always lagging behind the times, al ways a bit too late in their decisions and actions. !*'V . Seems to me the scheme of things is upset a good deal more ..by. "sunrise men" who are always wasting fheir own and other people's energy by hasty and unconsidered action. In one of the western states, there Is a prison where the men who have committed crimes that' are a result of a quick temper, such as cnurder or manslaughter or assault, are set to work doing some of the very finest work of watchmaking. IS / They deal with such microscopic and fragile parts that a hasty or ill considered movement will destroy the work of weeks. The theory is that the complete control and slowness of motion that thfe work requires acts upon them mentally and teaches them self-control and deliberation. >• -• : \u25a0:\u25a0-• .-\u25a0•..' -\u25a0. : \u0084';^"'.^;' -.
