THE wayfaring man might very well be puzzled to account for
the apparent partnership existing between- Theodore Bell and
Patrick Calhoun. Most people would have been slow, in the
absence of evidence, to accuse Mr. Bell of
any such alliance, but the evidence is here in
plenty supplied by the public and constantly
reiterated utterances of the two contracting
_ parties. In the expressive language of the
rtrcet., they "peddle the same lure of talk."
It is all concerned with the graft, prosecutions in- San Francisco,
in which Hiram Johnson bore a not inconspicuous part. The way
faring man might readily understand why Mr. Johnson's part in
the prosecutions would naturally have been a cause of acute dis
comfort to Mr. Calhoun, but why that suffering should be shared
by Mr. Bell is not so clear. That he should be traveling up and
down the state in cordial acceptance of this strange political partner
ship and repeating Mr. Calhoun's silly ''arraignment 1 " of Johnson
is one of the most remarkable political phenomena of the day.
Whose
Candidate Is
Theodore Bell?
The gravamen of this strange "arraignment" is that Mr. Johnson
was paid for his services in aid of the graft prosecutions — that and
nothing more. Xow, if Mr. Johnson was paid for what he did in
this relation, and we do not doubt that he was, it will scarcely be
disputed that. he. amply earned the money. .The most important
service accomplished by that undertaking was the conviction of
Abe Ruef, for which the undisputed- credit belongs ;to Mr. Johnson.
Of that conviction it may be said of Johnson that "alone he did it."
Mr. Calhbun perhaps still feels bad about that matter, but it does
not appear that the voters of California would be likely to share
that feeling, nor would they be disposed to deny that, the laborer
is worthy of his hire. It is not, as far as we know, established
that Mr. Johnson was paid anything for -this .particular* service,
but we are quite certain that he ought; to y have had a liberal
remuneration for that work, which, at the risk of displeasing Mr.
Calhoun- and Mr. Bell, we do not hesitate to characterize as a public
service of the, highest value. ', .
The whole controversy — if it may be spoken, of as sueh —
appears to partake of the nature of opera bouffe pplitics, and
Mr. Bell's resort to such tactics and his malodorous alliance with
Mr. Calhoun suggest the inevitable conclusion that Hiram Johnson's
record is unimpeachable. If this ridiculous charge is the best that
can be discovered in the way of attack the case falls to the ground
by its own weight as far as the republican candidate is concerned.
If that were all the affair might be disregarded, but the discussion
raises the much more serious question .What is Mr." Bell 'doing 'in
that company? Are the people of California to understand that
Mr. BeN is the accepted and willing candidate of the San Francisco
grafters? ' : ;>i:^>
OXE of the commercial bodies of San Francisco was given
some well deserved applause for its liberal contribution in
aid of the surviving- relatives of the men killed in the explosion
that wrecked the Los Angeles .Times building.
Sharing, in that applause The Call suggests to
the commercial bodies of .this city that there
is another good cause right here at home
that might very well hyi made the beneficiary
01 a similar nueraiuy and wise use of 'money. ,
There are soime 400 orphans once housed in the Mount St.
Joseph's \u25a0asN^lum who now on the edge of winter are in need of
food, shelter and clothing. It is true that ata unoccupied building
has been found to make a temporary home for these little ones,
but a great deal more remains to be done, and\ve do not hesitate
to call that need to the attention of the liberal minded commercial
bodies of San Francisco. We are free to believe that only the
suggestion is needed and that it will be followed by a generous
response. " -
These are our own people, the children of San Francisco' fathers
and mothers, and surely they ha,ve a claim on the generosity of a
warm hearted community. £
The Mount St. Joseph's asylum is a great and meritorious
institution, and those who come to its relief . in the hour^of need
do themselves honor arid credit. r
What They
Might Do
for the Orphans
THE; Fresno Republican prints a voluminous- letter written by
Frank 11. Short in defense of the "innocent purchasers" of
railroad oil lands whose titles are questioned because of the
reservation in the" patents excluding* mineral
lands from .the grant. v Mr. Short seeks to
discredit the proposal tlfat the government
I should take proceedings to test the validity
I of these, titles by a \ sneer at "the; halof of
conservation," in whose name he is persuaded a sea of troubles is
about to be turned loose on the innocents and others .to whom his
heart goes out. Of course Mr. • Short* knows that 'there are no
innocent purchasers in this relation." While lie does: not employ
Lhat phrase, at the same time he pleads for sympathy for certain
unprotected corporations like the Standard -oil; the Associated and
Hie Kern. trading and oil companies, which took with a full knowl
edge of the risk and are in fact for the most part the Southern
Pacific company' in disguise.
The question here at issue is not a matter to be decided either
by sentimental considerations or by sneers. It is a. simple matter
of law for the courts to decide. If thertitles are good so much the
better for the Southern Pacific: If they are not valid give somebody
else a chance. The government should ascertain its rights; at the
risk of offending these innocent corporations and; their stage widows
and orphans. . '; / *' ~ '\l' <'-\u25a0-,-
Speaking of the- -''halo of conservation*' the same paper" that
prints Mr. r Shores letter contains this Porterville, dispatch :

to the filing of water power sites suitable for electrical developments has^
brought out the knowledge that at every available point of the Tulc'
river, both forks and on the Kern river clear to the ice limits almost at
Kern lakes, every site has becnfiled upon by agents of the hydro-electric •
companies. • 'V "\u25a0''.::'''..:>/ \^' : . \u25a0 V 7
Location notices have been filed, in 'accordance with California laws.;
No irrigation rights are threatened, as the .water,,is to be turned back
into the river after it has been used to whirl the turbines. In accordance,
-with the California laws, the sites are being.worked upon just enough to
secure the title. •\u25a0 ' ""• . ! : * . :v: v * ;< '•;/ vV
It is -interesting to note that these titles are either owned?by. the" j
Edison or the Huntington interests,' and that; there is not now left x tipon
either the Tule or the Kern rtver enough water to turn a toy paddle. \Vheel.
, This means that the local people r who .want to develop ' jpbwer ,
for use in that neighborhood find fhemselvesshut off by appropria
tions made by the water power trust, which has seized most of
the available rights of ; this character, in .California not protected
by the "halo of conservation" in the guise of a federal reservation.^
11 If we are rightly informed these corporations are clients of
Mr. Short, and this fact may serve to explain his contempt for
"the halo of conservation." •. \u25a0\u25a0^'; '-''-? .
THE. Illinois .railroad commission some -..time ago ordered a, deep
cut in the rates charged by the express companies] which on
'""-"•^"-\u2666\u25a0ioiV were; -found tp be exorbitantly high, but the c0m
;,..:.,.- mission finds' itself confronted by the same
.doubt concerning its legal powers that has
been used as >an excuse for inaction •by .the
:Li corresponding body in this state. That .is to
;•"'-. •' say,, the legislature "has never taken pains to
dehne the powers of the.com mission. -The Chicago Daily News thus
explains the -situation : , '. ' ,V
... - The commission; itself is, ndt^sureof'its.authority in- the premises.
In the absence of: legislation oh the subject it-has proceeded to .try out
the matter, The legislature, however; unquestionably could have given it
the right to regulate expressjchargesihad that body been disposed to do '
' so. The legislature was urgently requested by business organizations
throughout the state tp enact this very^ beneficial^ legislations But "jack
pot" legislators pay little heed to requests of this- nature. The,c-xistence
of the "jackpot" explains their insolent'refusal to pass la'ws'for the publics'"
benefit. '^^'\ , :: v \-. \u25a0. '". , \u0084 ' r.-" '-' .*\u25a0 .. : •'.\u25a0 '\u25a0 . :.\: .\ '-. . ' ' : \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0/ .'\u25a0*>\u25a0
. There is no doubt at all that, express rates are \u25a0\u25a0unreasonably:,
high not only in Illinois but:in-California and in every other part of
the country, but. owing to corrupt control of the legislatures; : '^wlieii

The Morning Chit-Chatf
WHAT! dull, when you do not know what gives its
loveliness of form to the lily, its depth of color to
the violet, its fragrance to the rose; when you do
not know in what consists the venom of the adder any
more than you can imitate the glad movements of the
dove. What! dull, when earth, air and water are all
alike mysteries to you, and when as you stretch out your
hand you do not touch anything the properties of which
you have mastered, while all the time nature is inviting
you to talk earnestly with her, to understand her, to
subdue her and to be blessed by her! Go away, man;
learn something, understand something 1 ; do something,
and let me hear no more of your dullness!"
—Sir Arthur Helps.* \u2666
I. was reminded of that quotation the other day when,
while waiting in an intelligence office to interview a prospective maid, ' I
drifted into conversation with the woman beside me.
\u25a0 She was a fine looking woman, evidently about 60 if you Judged from her -
casual mention of married children and -numerous grandchildren, but not a •
day over 50 if you judged from her fresh, cheerful appearance and her atert
manner. •'/. •
' : The thing that impressed me about her and reminded me of the quota
tion was what she said when I asked her if she had been waiting long.
She consulted her watch, and appeared surprised.
"Why, it's about an hour," she said, "but it doesn't seem half so long.
Most of my friends^think that hunting up a maid is -the worst bore- in the
world, but do you know, if I'm not too busy, I actually enjoy sittfng in 'an
' intelligence .office. It's so interesting to study the people' who come in. -Why,
it's really, as good as a matinee to me."
At 90, if she lives— and I hope she does, for the world needs more like
her — that woman will be happy, and still a good companion, both for herself
and other people. .• / . • : '
, ; Sir Arthur says there are so many tantalizing, defiant mysteries, so many
invitations to thought and speculation in nature, that no one has a ri^ht to be
Seems. to me there are. even more delightful myjsteries. even moc« allurr? ;
ing invitations to thought and speculation- in ; the world of men and womenl
about one.
The reason that woman looked 50 instead of-~60 was undoubtedly because
she bad accepted those invitations and had been too busy and too interested
to grow old.,
An intelligence office, a trolley car, a shop, a hotel lobby, a business
office— all these can be as absorbing as a drama or as tedious as a dictionary.
