MR. BELL'S support in this campaign is miscellaneous and
confusing, but at the -same time highly suggestive. It is,
for example, an ominous conjunction that , brings Patrick
Calhoun * and ', W. R. Hearst, in alliance to
advance the cause of the democratic candidate.
\u25a0 -. \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0•\u25a0
Four years ago Mr. Hearst was voluminously
and obstreperously denouncing -Mr. Bell, and
at the same time was advocating the election
for governor of California of the man who was prosecuting Mr.
Calhoun on a bribery indictment. It is not now explained how or
why Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Hearst have become reconciled to Mr.
Bell, but with the extensive knowledge which the people of Cali
fornia have acquired concerning the nature and aims of the sort of
politics done by Calhoun and Hearst they should be "able to make
a fairly accurate guess as to their objects. What pledges has
Mr. Bell given, what bargain has he made that brings him the
sinister support of Calhoun and Hearst?
-i It is stated on the authority of the republican state committee
"\u25a0-.that a large corruption fund has been raised to defeat Hiram
Johnson for governor, and that it is the purpose to finance a
campaign of personal abuse directed at the republican candidate.
We already remark the early symptoms of this campaign in the
columns of the gutter weeklies and the kept newspapers, but it
. does not on the whole appear to.be effective. For the most part
$ it looks silly and puerile, like Mr. Bell's opera bouffe catechism
{addressed to Mr. Johnson. Now, if Mr. Bell is so hard set on the
* Socratic method of argument he might himself profitably answer
; the question. Why are you in alliance with Hearst and Calhoun?
Mr. Bell industriously asserts at every recurring crossroads that
,\ the duty to drive the Southern Pacific company out of politics belongs
| to him by right of discovery. As he remarked Saturday, he has
on this duty for sixteen years and is still at , it. Now, it
-may be that this is the reason why Hearst and Calhoun are sq
supporting him, but to the people of California who are
familiar with the history of these men their sudden conversion, if
| genuine, must appear in the" light of a modern miracle.
It is true that in one sense the conjunction' of Hearst, Calhoun
Jrand Bell lends itself to ridicule, but likewise it has its serious and
aspect, or might have were it possible for Bell to be
; elected governor. A governor with a kitchen cabinet composed of
Hearst and Calhoun should be entirely welcome to Mr. Herrin.
Theodore Bell's
JOHX TUOHY, chairman of the committee oh revenue and tax
ation of the state grange, makes a strong report advocating
the ratification at the coming election of the constitutional
amendment whose general purpose is to segre
gate the means of revenue to support the
state government from those of the counties
and cities by placing a fixed tax'on the. public
service corporations, banks and .insurance
-companies. Mr. Tuohy points out that the present revenue system
\u25a0;of the state places a monstrously unjust proportion \u25a0 of the tax
1 burden on real property, and that oiie way to correct this injustice
:is to transfer an important part of the load to personalty by taxing
the gross earnings of the public service corporations and the capital
stock of banks on an easily calculated and virtually, automatic
system. What Mr. Tuohy calls the "tommyrot critlcisnr'- of the
proposition to be submitted is all concerned with" ""unimportant
Assertions have been made, and wilj be made again, that the' new
\u25a0 system of revenue does not require railroads and sj r ndicates to pay pro
rata for special city or district purposes. Pay no attention to such mis
leading charges. All such things are well considered by the commission;
such claims arc now raised to divert the attention of the honest but unin
vestigatmg voter; they have no real merits. Vote for the amendment \u25a0-
, and you arc voting* for a better revenue system than you have hqw. Do
not forget this. I
Senate constitutional amendment Xo. 1 has three times been dis
cussed, approved and submitted to the people for their approval by the
legislature. It has three times been approved.by the state grange, Patrons
of Husbandry, a body of fair minded farmers. All have been actuated by
a desire solely to have a fair and equitable system of revenue for the tax
r payers of the state.
We believe that senate constitutional amendment No. 1 will be
carried this time by an overwhelming vote.

Amendment No. I
WILLIAM R. WHEELER,, traffic manager for the Mer
chants' exchange of this city, indicated in his address to
the Fresno chamber of commerce the general method by
which California must proceed to mee^arid
offset the injury done to its trade and industry
by: the .long and short haul provision of
the federal law for regulation' of; railroads
The .interstate commerce commission, has
announced that its decision in the Reno case making reductions of
rates amounting to something like 33.33 per cent will become effect
ive December , 1. . Hitherto it has been the .practice of the railroads
to concede to Pacific coast points lower rates from eastern shipping
centers than those given to; interior cities-such as Reno and Spokane;'
On paper this looked like injustice,- and a voluminous body of
oratory may be^iscovered by explorers ofj:thc Gongressional Record, 75
in which the speakers dilate^ on the iniquity of charging a lower rate
for a long than for a short haul. ;;- v ', * \ ;, -. '"I : " v •'*/
The reply was that the railroads were Confronted by a con
dition and not a theory, and this condition; beirigCttie; necessity- 6i<
meeting the competition of transportation by sea^ was not; witlim
Mr. Wheeler's
Solution of the
Rate Situation
, Some u QuestiQns r> Ep^laiiii&d
their control' nor the subject of regulation by congress. Now, the
force of this argument was in some degree "weakened by the fact
that the railroads did in reality and in many cases control # the means
of .transportation by the water routes. v, * : : ' •.
In the outcome of. a rather confused debate- congress took what
seemed to be the easiest way and accepted the arithmetical rather
than the geographical solution of the debate, and hence the* eriact
ment of the long and short haul clause, on which the Reno rates
decision chiefly 'rests. - : .
Now, it rests with the' people v of the coast shipping centers to
demonstrate by actual practice that this. long and^ short haul;: rule
is impossible of enforcement. - As r Mr. AVheeler ,ohserves; fighting
long winded and tedious lawsuits "before : railroad commissions,
whether state "or federal^ is ah unprofitable business. .". Bureaucracy
moves with halting and uncertain step and is 'a creature of
compromises. v _: ' "'\u25a0•.- ,v^
What Fresno and Oakland and Los Angeles and other shipping
points should do is to an active system of transportation by
water independent of the railroads. Air. Wheelejr tells Fresno that
this can be_ done as to that point" by making the San Joaquin: river
a competent canal. He tells San Francisco to accomplish the same
purpose by encouraging an independent line of steamships trading
via the isthmian route. :.'*'•_>.;.. ; :
The operation of uncontrolled competition by water on these
lines must result in reducing the long and short haul rule.to absurdity,
and demonstrate the impossibility of, its enforcement^ if the^railroads
are not to lose the bulk of .their business between coasts. With
these means of competition established r on a working basis the long
and short haul situation may be left to regulate itself.
r TT* HE city of Portlands Ore., is engaged on a discussion of a
I\u25a0 . proposition to. buy the water front and make it a free harb<
* or as nearly free as circumstances will permit, and the successT
ful and profitable.public ownership of the San
Francisco .water front is one of the strongest
arguments advanced in favor of the project.
This, -course, is not^a^free harbor, : but its
charges ~ J are moderate by> comparison with
those of other ports, and our successful experience; in this relation
has definitely decided the policy of other cities in, California, like
Oakland and Los-; Angeles,: to follow {our example and insist on
public .ownership tt of; their water frontage. • ' .
The "Unearned
Increment" of
Islais Creek
The immediate bearing ; of this policy as it , applies to San
Francisco^ lies in its -extension to the Islais creek quarter; where it
is proposed that the; state shall buy sixty-three blocks of submerged
land for the excavation of : an interior harbor: It is obvious that
this property "will and in 3 chief "part be used for ; this
purpose, but the question; pending ;is whether this; interior! h^rbo/
shall be held in private or in public ownership. The: selfish i interests
which are opposingtlie issue of bonds for $i; 000,000 to buy: the lands
in question -want to , hold them so .that; they can beVconverted into
a private harbor /conducted for their/own profit." ?AsVqne; "of their
paid advocates -lias .innocently ? remarked; they \u25a0\want : i to appropriate
the "uneaYned/increi-nent" of the; value ; of these lands, ; which must
accrue from the growth of business- and; population. ;: ;'- :

The Morning Chit-Cnat
INSTEAD of talking myself, I'm going to let my readers*
talk to each* other today for a change.
You see, it's this way :
.."\u25a0 A few weeks ago I received a letter from a young girl
who had written asking me to tell her of some way to
overcome her extreme shyness and self-consciousness.
Not knowing exactly how to. answer her, I published the
appear and asked my readers to help me out.
And they have, most handsomely.
Here are some of their very excellent suggestions.
They are especially addressed to the girl of the letter,
but I suspect that there are plenty of other girls who can
make use or them. , " ,
"Sensitiveness is selfishness," writes one young
woman. "Two years ago I was absolutely the most sensi
tive and shy person on the face of the earth, I believe. Then I went to X
boarding school and fell under the influence of a preceptress whose life la
lived entirely for others. She taught me to realize. this truth— that sensitive-
ness is selfishness — and to cure it by concentrating my mind on some other
object besides myself. It was hard work, but, l finally succeeded, and today?
people wonder how it was I changed so much in so short a time.'*
"I was just such a girl as you described,'*- writes another woman, "when
I read a short article in the Youth's Companion which made a different person
of me. In this article a plain, old country grandmother was bidding her.
grandson goodby as he was leaving for a business life in the city. She tokt
him that when he was with folks below himself in the social scale to remem
ber they were 'folks' after all, and should be treated with consideration and
kindness. And when with those whose manner or position seemed above him.
to reflect that they, also, were only just 'folks' like himself=ahd^family,"*aif<ltHat
there was no real reason why he should be overawed bvrtfiem. ? I have loot told
this so well as the original article, but I h6pe you catch' the idea. Certainly
many times when with ladies well versed in ways of society in -which I was>
ignorant, it has given me confidence and ease to remember that they wero
just 'folks' after all."
A philosophic young woman solved the problem this way:
"I was a painfully reserved, bashful, self-conscious girl. You may be sure
I was quite all the things your correspondent saysjshe is."_ To be liked and
sought after was ray great desire, but I never knew how to begin the campaign.
After varied experiences and many \ sad blows, I found .that my ideal- was
wrong. 'To be. liked' .was v not enough. It did -not strike the point. The.more 1
pondered over the matterjhe more I realized'tSat I must reconstruct my Ideal,
and I finally came to the conclusion that to strive to be liked is not enough.
It. is in striving to be worthy to be liked that the secret of popularity lies. My
viewpoint -was now changed completely and In the place of self-consciousness
and uneasiness I found self-reliance and assurance coming. 'It was no light
ning change, remember, but it .did come at last." '. r ; . ,^
Another woman suggests- — r'-.-^Vi
But, dear me,' if I try to tell you the half of the wisdom that has been
flowing into my office I shall be reproved for running over my space. !
. So please consider it "continued in our next."
