THE memorial of the Good Government league addressed to the
board of supervisors describes undeniable conditions relating
to the streetcar service in this city that have become so intol
erable and so injurious to the welfare and
prosperity of the community as to call for
official action in the premises, since it seems
that the' transportation monopoly will take no
steps for betterment. These conditions may
best be indicated by an extract from the memorial as follows:
During certain hours of o the day, and particularly between 5 o'clock
and 6:30 p. in., and also during morning hours when businessmen,
workmen and employes generally are seeking their places of emploj'hient.
the car? are invariably crowded to such an extent as to be a source of
discomfort. serious inconvenience and danger to passengers on said cars.
Passengers frequently during these hours are unable to gain a footing
on said cars, much less an entrance thereto, and it is a daily occurrence
for them to be obliged to stand on steps and to retain such foothold by, j»
grasping a stanchion or, other appurtenance to the car, all of which is'
inconvenient and. unless great vigilance is observed, dangerous to life
ar.d limb. . ' ; - .-
The crowding together of so many people in the limited space of
a streetcar, in addition to being inconvenient and uncomfortable to the
ln c t degree, must necessarily be unwholesome, insanitary and by reason
of the unavoidable generation of impure atmospheric conditions must
tend to the drs=emina*tibn of disease.
In fact the homeward journey of hard working people has
become a serious drain on their vitality, and in the morning they
EO to work "with their energies impaired by the strenuous labors
m the downtown trip. Indeed, it calls for a certain degree of
heroism to undertake tlie perils and- discomforts of an early expedi
tion coming into town.
These conditions are bad for business as well as inconvenient
md distressing for those who live in the outlying districts. /The super
visors "have power to- deal with the whole subject under the charter
provisions that give them, control of - urban transportation methods.
The charter gives the board power. "to regulate railroad tracks and
cars, . /,? >. .' >* * to regulate rates of speed and to pass ordinances
to protect, the public from danger or inconvenience~in the operation
of such roads."
Transportation in the cities on- the other side of the bay is
iireatly superior in point of comfort and convenience to that which
obtains in this city and the result ;is an inevitable loss of, population

MR. HEARST'S sunburst of sham virtue has suffered a sudden
.eclipse* and lie has gone jubilantly back into the business of
\u25a0"Serving;' buckets of blood to his subscribers. For. a brief
season after he had made all the money he
could by printing- pictures and histories of the
Jeffries-Johnson fight he was stricken with Tan
afflicted conscience, suffering for the sins of
his neighbors.- He vowed that never again
would, he suffer his columns to be defiled by news of "the prize
fight game," and chiefly he was concerned to prevent other people
from making money out of it by showing pictures of this brutal
End dem oral i zing sport. He went to the length of printing shameful
End incendiary cartoons of Mayor Gaynor in Xew York because
Gaynor could find no law to prevent exhibition of the fight pictures.
AH tiiis was more or less admirable as long as it lasted, but that
was not very long. Xmv he is himself back in the old business;,
printing-page stories and pictures of a prize fight just as if nothing
had happened at Reno.
What" a cheap and' paltry hypocrite is this man! He loudly
condemns gambling on his .editorial page and prints on another the
advertisement . of a lottery drawing in San Francisco. : He grabs all
the money he .can by, selling elaborate accounts and pictures of a
prize fight- and in the next breath excoriates all others who want
to follow^ his, example.
Haring soid his elaborate account of the Moran-Xelson fight
in this city- we. may now look for a solemn editorial denouncing this
brutal exhibitipn. Mr., Hearst's conscience resides in his breeches
pocket and is chiefly available for .the use of his neighbors. Indeed,
it is a performing conscience of astonishing agility, a self-cocking
and adjustable' appliance warranted never to kick' back.

T| HE citrus fair to be held at Visalia. beginning on Monday,
"December 5.- to exploit and explain the resources of the southern
region of the San Joaquin vailey should attract great crowds
of visitors from northern and central Cali
fornia. A country of .wonderful fertility and
climate lies about Visalia, and they have been
doing things in that neighborhood. The
development of the citrus fruit industry in
Tulare has been remarkable and gratifying, and this is only a single
item going to make the prosperity of that' region. An influential
delegation from the mercantile community of San Francisco will
visit the fair and will rejoice further to cultivate existing friendly
business relations. . »

; and the people of- that thriving city know how to make things go

WASHINGTON, Nov. 26. — In announcing tonight the correct population of Seattle, Wash., and
Portland. Ore., as 237,194 and 207,214 respectively, Census Director Durand issued statements giving the
results of the re-enumeratioh made necessary in certain districts of the two cities by evidences of padding of the
original figures. ,
"The original returns from Seattle contained 248,382 names, or 11,188 more than the final figures,"
said 'Durand. \u25a0
"The original returns for Portland contained 222,959 names, or 15,745 more than the final count.".
republican states in the union, is to be represented in the sixty-second -
congress by 5 republicans and 16 democrats. Such old veterans as"
General Kcifer "and General- Hollingsworth vv^nt'down with their col
leagues. Districts that never before had elected democrats' went- demo-^.,
cratic by strong majorities at the last election, and the five republicans .'
who were elected got through by reduced majorities. We never "had
better candidates for congress, better men or better republicans. All that .
which heretofore had seemed to be sufficient proved this' time without
I avail. ; * . ' , * .
Foraker apparently is unable to- sec any significance- in the fact
that'the Ohio republican candidates were airstaiidpatters nominated
on a standpat platform by a convention wholly controlled by that
faction.. He does not see these things because, he does not wish to
see- them. Where the standpatters did not control the republican
candidates were successful with the single : ; exception of Indiana.
In Ohio and in ]\lassachusctts, where the standpatters made the
ticket and the platform, the democrats -won, although these states
are undoubtedly republican by great normal majorities. "
It is.jiot to be expected that the tribe of Foraker will admit these
facts, because they mean political-ex tinction- for ; the whole -crowd.
NATIONAL ROCK FOR STATE
Callfornfans have been accustomed to
reckon'their history from the corning
of the padres. Behind that .has been
merely the hazy record of the 'daring
navigators who braved the inhospitable
coasts. The previous eras have melted
into impenetrable mists. All good Cali
fornianß will asrree, however, that only
the warping of time has placed else
where the Garden of Eden. Tp this'. the
laden branches of the Pajaro valley
bear ruddy witness. To more specific
claims of an ancient lineage the native
son is not so indisputably committed.
Any effort, therefore, to search out
some enduring mark of a distant age
must bring, grateful recognition.- In
this worthy enterprise, science has not
been wholly sympathetic. Geology has
stoutly resisted. It was Prof. Joseph
le Conte who startled his class at the
state university with the information
that California was the youngest: piece
of geography on .the hemisphere, the
tender offspring of -a motherly glacier.
But now comes one of, our own"' his
torian? with; a challenge to Egypt.
It was George "Ade who remarked, by
the way, that Egypt ' was . very j small
for its age. But the home of the
Pharaohs must «ow\ defend Its ; an
cestral claims against the rising west.
In its refusal -to be . overtopped in
any form of human "endeavor, Cali
fornia presents a rival to the Sphinx.
It is J:'La Piedra Pintada." or Painted
Rock, on the broad Carrisa plains of
San Luis Oblspo county. Myron Angel,
the venerable historian of San Luis
Obispo, finds a striking -analogy, be
tween these two monuments. He has
gathered the facts and legends bear
ing upon this Imposing: and ancient
pile with its fresco of . fantastic pic
tures, and has presented. them in inter
esting and artistic book form. ' .
"Most awe Inspiring; and mysterious,
and Indubitably the work of theTsuri
worshipers," says he, "are. the Sphinx
of Egypt and- the Painted: Rock of San
Luis -Obispo, standing almost precisely
opposite each pother on the -globe.-! The
first has stood as a riddle :to'. all-in
quirers all w the "centuries:. of

PAUL SINSHEINER
Through the researches of Angel, the
federal government has been impressed
with the antiquity and proposes to set
it apart as a. national monument. The
owners of the rancho upon which it r
stands have expressed a willingness to
.dedicate the required acreage to the
government.
.The Carrisa plain, from which rises
the temple of stone, lies parching under
a torrid sunthrough the long summers.
A thousand feet above" the- level of the
sea. It stretches 65-mileu to : the" north
and south. Spanning a dozen miles east
•and west, it reaches to the slopes of the
Monte Diablo range, shoving Its south
eastern corner, wedge shaped. Into the
Midway oil field of Kern. county. A lake
of salt and soda marks Its center. Sul
phur basins dot its broad expanse.
"The Painted Rock," writes Angel,,
"attains an elevation of near 200 feet
above the surrounding plaln.^lt meas
ures 1,000 feet in diameter at; Its base.
On its eastern ridge through a narrow
portal 20 feet in width has been exca
vated an oval chamber or amphitheater
300 feet: in length by; ZOO "feet in its
\u25a0widest place, open to the sky, with per
pendicular walls 150 feet high." _*-
On, a gallery running partly around
the chamber 'are' the weird; paintings.
These strange hieroglyphics, defying
interpretation, appear at times as mere
markings, again as grotesque designs,
occasionally as drawings 'of fish or ani
mals, and again as, crude reproductions
of the human body.

THE
LAST FLY
The Morning Chit-Chat
rr\ HE lady who came to spend the day with mother
J yesterday brought her little grandchild. And at 4
o'clock, when school was out, the little girl next door
and the little girl from two doors down the street came
over to play dolls with her.
Mother produced some of the old family playthings in
the way of doll's furniture for them, and for awhile they
played most happily in the next room to my study. And
then, all at once, I was conscious of a discord. The dis
pute concerned the arrangement of the furniture.
"But they never have bureaus in parlors." I heard
\u25a0 "Yes they do. "When we lived In the boarding bouse
we had a bureau in our parlor behind. the screen."
"But we haven't got a screen."
"I don't care. "We've got to have the bureau in the <
parlor because if we don't there'll only be a piano and a chair, and you can't
have a parlor with just a piano and a chair."
"But you can't have a bureau in a parlor, and I won't.**
"Then I won't play, and I don't like you, and I'm going down and get
grandma to take me home. I don't want to play with you. So there!"
This last remark, delivered In a shrill tone, audible all over the house,
brought grandmother to the scene of action.
"Madeline, don't you dare say that naughty thing again," she reproved.
"Of course you will play with the other little girls and play as they want to.
You know you can't have your own way all the time."
"That's tlie worst thing about Madeline." she explained to me subsequent
ly, when comparative peace had been restored. "When she can't have her
own way she sits down and says 'I won't play.* I think that's a terrible trait
in a child. If she were my child I'd break her of It no matter what I had
to do."
With difficulty I repressed a smile. Not because I don't agree with grand
mother. I do, thoroughly. I don't know any trait I dislike more in a child
than the "I won't play" habit. But you see I dislike It even more in grown
ups. And that's why I smiled. i- •;
For once on a time Madeline's grandmother used to be a very active
member of a certain club, -i She isn't any longer because the club voted to
change; its place of meeting to one more generally accessible. Madeline^
grandmother vigorously opposed the move, but lost. Therefore she said the
grown-up equivalent to "I won't play," and left the club in wrath.
There is a woman in our, neighborhood who used to be a strong church
member but who hasn't been inside the church this year. She thought the
society needed a change of minister. The trustees thought differently. So J
she said, "I won't play until you do what I want,'* and hasn't been" inside
the church since.
Two of my neighbors, who are usually active workers in the church fair,
are doing nothing this year. "Why? Because they wanted the church to hire
a. larger hall for the sale, and the majority of the worshippers deemed that
unwise. So these highly charitable and religious folks said, "We won't
play," and retired into their respective corners to sulk and hope the fair
But why multiply instances? You know the "I won't play" folks as well
And hate them as much, I have no doubt.
So, of course, I don't need to suggest that you be sure not to resemble
them in the slightest degree -'<\u25a0 ,_, -, *.'

Timber for the Canaries
- All timber used in the Canary islands
Is imported, the supply of Canary pin©
having- long been exhausTed. The coun
tries from which the supplies are
drawn are the United States. Norway.
Sweden and Austrla-Hunsrary and oc
casional cargro«s of Canada spruce.
The building- timber la almost ex
clusively pitch pine, which Is best
adapted to the climate. It is also used
for floors and constructive work, ani
manufactured into furniture of all
kinds. For general purposes it la found
the next best to "tea." the- Canary pine,
\u25a0s* they are about the only kinds that
are not attacked by a worm that de
stroys nearly all other kinds of wood.
It is Imported tawr. There are no
sawmills In these islands, and If it be- i
comes necessary to saw any lo^s it i.v
done by a handsaw worked by several
laborers. The ylmportation of pitch
p!ne. all of which came from the Unit
ed Statea. for the year 1909 amounted
to 4.600 tons, of which 2.950 were im
ported at Grand 1 Canary and the bal
ance »t Teneriffe. With exception of
one carpro that came from Georgia, the
whole Import was from Florida.
Formerly all the timber imported
from the United States was brought by
American sailing: vessels, but for the
past three years notan American ves
sel has brought a cargo of American
timber, the trade being now done by
British. Italian. Norwegian and Spanish
sailing: vesels. On account of their low
freights it Is Impossible for American
ships to compete therewith}. The pre
vailing- freights during the year 1909
for timber from the United States to
