ABE RUEJF'S latest brief addressed to the district* court of ap
peal in support of his motion for rehearing of the judgment
affirming- his conviction and sentence to fourteen years in the
penitentiary is characterized by a certain
humorous impudence, doubtless inspired by a
desire to keep out of prison a little, longer.
Ruef's earlier brief, with the record made'
Ruef Indulges
an Impudent
! up by his counsel in the case, as filed in support
of his appeal, ran to nearly 15.000 printed pages, chiefly compiled of
irrelevant matter. In his brief for rehearing he virtually charges
that the court did not read and digest this portentous mass of stuff.
To be sure, he seeks to preserve .the decencies of court etiquette by
characterizing the supposed neglect of the court as "inadvertent."
The adjective does not in any respect mitigate the charge. A court
has no business to treat a plea, however long, futile and straggling,
whh inadvertence or neglect. It is quite certain that nothing of J:he
sort happened in this case, however much the court may have felt
the imposition on its time and patience.
Not only is ihe court accused by Ruef of "inadvertence,"' but
<'ii top of tliat the justices are charged with a lack of intelligence.
'I'heyare guilty, says the brief, of "misconceptions of fact" and of
\u25a0'misconceptions of the points" argiied for the appellant. Warming
up. the brief drops even the semi-polite fiction of "inadvertence 'and
flatly charges "inadequate consideration <">{ the record and of the, ar-
This is a positive charge of negligence in the performance ' of
judicial {duty.- It would be serious if it emanated from a responsible
or respectable source. Coming from Ruef it does not rise above the
CALIFORNIA 'profit by the extraordinary and almost
complete failure of the European wine crop for the present
year, it does not become a people to rejoice over the mis
~~~ fortunes of other nations, but the facts /must
be recognized and noted because of their in
fluence on business conditions.
Xot for one hundred years has the crop
failure been so complete in all 'the European
\yjne producing countries." France, Austria Hungary, Germany and
i"aly. one and all. report a disastrous shortage. London advices
The normal annual yield m the European vineyards is computed at
gallons. Of this- France usually produces abqut 1,000.000,000
* £:'ill^n<. Tin* year France's production will be only 400.000.000 gallons.
*-;rsA* France i- both ih'e largc.-t producer and consumer <A wine, the failure
of this year's harvest is nothingfjless than a national <li~.i-tor. Assessing
tlie wine at a price of only 16 cents' a gallon, the loss u> France tfiis year
would be some $100,000,000. '•
Weather conditions are chiefly responsible for the failure.
I'retiv much all over Europe there was a disastrously wet summer,
and the hrst requirement of successful wine making is that the ripen
ing grapes shall not -be subject to a humid atmosphere. This is the
reason why California should become the greatest wine* producing
country in the world.
The wine business rs peculiar in many respects. It does not ap
pear :o be more capable of standardization than horse trading and
the industry as a whole suffers in consequence.

r U.Mh rather unusual complications appear to have. arisen" in the
matter of the gold bullion stolen in transit from' Alaska. It is
v*-*/v *-* / the fact that bullion worth some $57,000 was stolen "but nobody
! seems to know exactly \u25a0uhere the robbery v.as
committed or in what jurisdiction,
(.iuld bars believed to be a part of -the
property have been recovered in this
city and certain persons presumably connected
with the enme are under: arrest. But^ the robbery wa"s not,com
mittcl in San Francisco and the federal secret service people arc
reported to have announced that they will, Mkc no further part in
the affair. If this report is -correct it is uo't^clear why the federal
authorities should abandon the case." The presumption^ is, although
this is not fully established, that the robbery was committed on the
liirfi seas, which would make it a federal matter.

1 he local police and prosecuting authorities not directly
concerned in the matter. They will assist, of course, in the way of
investigation and by holding the suspects unless they are ordered
discharged on habeas corpus, but the venue of the original crime \vas
not laid in California, altliough. of course, certain of the prisoners
might be prosecuied for having stolen property in their possession if
the identity of the bullion can be established. Altogether, it is a
case likely to result in many puzzling complications
CHAIRMAN WALKER D. MIXES of the executive com
mittee of the Santa Fe system has a long argiunciit in the
Outlook. -setting forth the position and claims of the rail
roads in relation "to^the demand for higher
-rates pending before the interstate commerce
commission. .• Mr. Hines makes an able, pre
sentation of the case for the railroads, but he
_ fails to meet in any convincing way the. charge
lying at.tue root pi the whole controversy, that the\ railroads seek- to
make the shippers pay the cost of building the loads by exacting
unduly high ratcsT-;
'Substantially, Chairman Hines_ makes a claim for ratesMiiVh
enough to create a surplus after the payment of liberal dividends
and of fixed charge!, this surplus, to bejtised in makin^'nermanprrf
improvements designed to increase ;re venue. In . supporr.bf this con
tention Mr. Hines makes the plea of necessity. That is- to say,' the
Peculiar Argu=
Ment of Santa
Fe Magnate
# At the present time, generally speaking, the property of the Santa Fe
is. covered by first and second mortgages for' nearly $250,000,000, and/
. therefore, is not available as security for additional mortgage bondsr ' That
.:':\u25a0 i " - \u25a0'. ' ' '\u25a0'- | \u25a0..\u25a0.-.\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0..\u25a0\u25a0 - r •":-.,.\u25a0 ' -\u0084 \u25a0
A Tip to the United Railroads
| ; Why not put all the cars in the barns on" Sundays and let a couple of workcars
carry all the people? . ,
source of raiding the $25,000,000 or $30,000,000 of necessary new capital
annually is. therefore, virtually exhausted. The money,- then, must be
» raised by selling stock, or by selling unsecured bonds or notes, or by
drawing upon surplus earnings accumulated after interest on the bonds .
and reasonable dividends have been paid. • . .
Translated. into. plain English, this means that the Santa Fe is
so deeply mortgaged and heavily capitalized that no more money can
be >borrowedfon its security. This, of course, is the trouble .with
most of the railroads which, in the course of a long record of finan
cial juggling, have been "loaded with vast issues of fictitious capital,
sometimes-in the shape of bonds and often' in the form of stock. The
I roads are now- engaged in a. process of squeezing out the water from
the' capitalization, .but they want to do. it at the expense of -the
people who pay the freight. I -
• Mr. Hiiies is a little vague, on figures, but if we understand him
rightly he seems to contend that 'expenditures ranging- frbnV;s2Q<ooo,
000, to $25,0001)00 \i- year ; should v be" made fpr^betterments on the
•Santa Fe system for "the next few years." Does he seriously con
tend that this vast sum should be contributed by the patrons of the
system in addition to paying dividends at 6 per cent, fixed charges
and operating expenses r Suppose Mr. Hines were paying rent for
his house. What would he think of . a landlord who insisted . on
getting, besides a fair interest on his investment, a -sufficient rent to
pay, for adding a new room to the house every year? It would not
be many years before the tenant would be paying an exorbitant rent
for a house built with his own money. <
The, Call v and the public want to be fair. -The railroads should
be enabled to make a reasonable surplus for use in replacements and
such improvements as arc not directly 'remunerative, but that they
are entitled to any such preposterous sum as Mr. Hincs indicates
is out of the question. The" fact is, Mr. Hines wants- to have his
cake and cat it, too. \ \ ;•;
ONE important consequence of" the. adoption '-of the new state
revenue system by the recent constitutional amendment will
be the much needed publicity which it must involve for the
business of public service corporations.
Tlie .state :• board of equalization in con
junction with the revenue commission is now
engaged in drafting a* bill to provide for the
operation of the system in detail. The nature
of the reports to be filed by corporations with the board of equaliza
tion will be specified and itemized in the law to be enacted and ihe
specifications should require- the fullest' measure -of publicity for
the operations of the service corporations.'
This is an obligation which these institutions owe to the com
monwealth whose legal- creature they are and \y whose statutes
they are invested with extraordinary privileges. " Everything that
they do^is affected with a- public interest and they have -always been
a 'principal cause of political corruption. The requirements of
the new revenue system should be made : auxiliary to .the general
scheme of regulation by the state for the business of these corpora
tions. \u25a0•.."\u25a0• . '.\u25a0 \u25a0 -*\u25a0

Tnn DOG "DAYS-sS. P. C, Souora. What
are the do? days?- -
The name "dog days" is applied to
that .time of the year when Sirus,
known as ; the dog star, because it is
in the constellation Canis Major — the
brightest fixed star- visible in the
northern hemisfihere, rises for several
successive .weeks at nearly the same
time with, the sup. The ancients re
garded the rising of this star with
the rising of: the sun as the cause of
the great heat at that period, which is
sometime during the months of July
and August: As, however, this con- j
junction does, not occur at "" the same,;
time in all latitudes, and is not con
stant in the same region for a long
period, there has been much variation
in calendars - in': regard to the time of 1
the dog days.* Furthermore this rising
became later and later in all latitudes
with each succeeding century, owing
to precession." The begirining of these
days has been variously fixed by al
manac makers, as from July 3 to 26
and their close, from July 3 to August
11. American authorities place them
between July 25 and . September 5.

The Morning Chit-Chat
TO THE familiar epigrams — "
"Tell me what a man eats and I will tell you
"Tell me what a man reads and I will tell you
I have a new one to add; *
Tell me how a man waits and I will tell you' what
•;' Did it ever occur to you how many ways there are
of waiting and how very expressive of,, character they
There is the man who, when he is watting for a
car which he knows will, come at a certain time, /will
rush out into the middle of the street or to a \-antage
point across the road, a half dozen times in the space 4
of 10 minutes in the hope of seeing it coming.
Can't you imagine just what this man would be like in business, and
in the business of living — just how unable to do a- thing and then let it
alone, just how unable to act and then wait for the passage of time to
ripen his act into results? , *. f .
Then there is the man who, while he waits, asks half a dozen"* people
when his car is due. Can't you paint from- that his tendency to suspicion
and unbelief? -.
Then ther.e is the man who. while he waits for the dinner he ha*
ordered, drums upon the table with his hand, takes up his knife and lays
it down; takes up his fork and lays it down, then drums on the table
again. If he is waiting for a car he paces up and down, up and down, for
all the world'like the poor panther in the z00. .-until the people about him
catch the contagion of his nervousness and become restless too. Don't
you know just what kind of a man he is at home, iust how nervous, how
impatient, how easily worried, how quick to fly off the handle?
\u25a0 And then there is the man who finds out when his car is due and then
simply folds his arms and waits. He-knows that no antics of his can hurry
the passage of time and he indulges in none. .-'
He is master of himself, captain of all his forces, and when he has given
himself the command to wait he expects unquestioning obedience.
Can't you get the whole man from that? Can't you realize the reserve
force, the control, the power in leash, in His character?
Waiting is the hardest thing most of us ever have to do. Everyone
knows that. And he who does it well is one of the greatest self conquerors.
Do you remember v what that great poet, whose blindness transformed
a life of passionate activity into a blank of eternal waiting, said about
"Then patience to prevent that murmur -soon replied r v.~-i
