•Am Independent Newspaper—The Paper of Authority." FOUNDED DECEMBER 1. 1856 W. W. CHAPIN, Publisher A GAMBLER'S BLUFF Not even a good joke was the at tempt of a gamblers' club, alias "social club," man to have acting Chief of Po lice Mooney arrested for disturbing the peace when Captain Mooney ordered policemen to enter the Phoenix club at all hours in quest of evidence of gambling. Mr. James J. Ryan, a proprietor of the Phoenix club, who claimed that the disturbance of the peace was done in order to harass him. is probably as correct in one claim as he is in the other. Of course District Attorney Fickert refused to issue a warrant charging Captain Mooney with any such friv olous charge. The people of this city, and Mr. Fickert. not to mention the absurd Ryan himself, know full well that Captain Mooney is not going to harass any one who hasn't a good job of being harassed coming to him. Captain Mooney knows what kind of a "social club" the Phoenix is, and so does any man who has ever en tered its doors, and if the ridiculous Ryan thinks he is going to get by with his ridiculous plea he also has a good bawling out coming to him. Harassing Ryan is a game which Captain Mooney is not playing, but putting the Phoenix clubs of the city out of existence is something the peo ple will back him up in doing every time he gets action against such rob bers of the homes as these "social clubs'' have been shown to be. DENATURED ALCOHOL LAW The wonders* to be performed by the passage of the denatured alcohol law have never come to pas-s, and the law is nearly seven years old. It was to have enabled the farmer to utilize waste fruit and vegetables of all kinds, from apricots to corn stalks, potatoes and tomatoes. What the European farmer has done and does was thoroughly exploited and the same profitable economies were ' promised to the American farmer. Why have they not been realized? Because the chief opponent of de natured alcohol caused the passage of an amendment at the next session of congress after the passage of the law which effectually put a stop to the small farm production. The inertia of the average Ameri can farmer has done the rest. He has been too indifferent to his own interests to make congress re-enact a law which should produce the results foretold. Senator Lane of Oregon, accord ing to the Washington Evening Star, has taken up the subject and has so far enlisted President Wilson's inter est that the latter has asked the sen ator to brief the need of a new law. The Star says: "At' the present time the president and the secretaries of agriculture and the treasury have the recommenda tion of a new industrial alcohol law under consideration, and it is prob able that before the end of the regu lar session of congress American farmers will be given a chance to equal the accomplishments of Ger mans in manufacturing denatured al cohol or perhaps exceed them." Many farmers have written to Sen ator Lane saying that the enactment of the denatured alcohol law, which will be for the benefit of the farmers, will assist the development of agri culture in this country more than any other piece of legislation. In no state more than in California will a denatured alcohol law, which will do what it has done in Germany, be of greater benefit. Our farmers need no campaign of education to teach them what such a law would mean to them. They do need a cam paign of stimulation to induce them to write to their representatives in congress urging them to co-operate with Senator Lane in securing an ade quate denatured alcohol law. A WEED SEASON DISEASE Next week the annual convention of the United States Hay Fever as sociation meets at Bethlehem, N. H. To any one who has never been or seen a victim of hay fever, so called, or autumnal catarrh, its other name, the announcement may mean little, but there are literally millions to whom it means much. Hay fever is one of those diseases which are not deadly in their effect, but which, while they last, are most annoying. The weeping eyes, the running nose, the almost constant sneezing, the stopped up passages of the head make the sufferer a pitiable spectacle, and, unfortunately, no med ical science has found either a cure or a, permanent alleviation. The victim of hay fever must suffer on and on until the end of the weed season. For hay fever, so far as knowledge goes, is confined to the season of the seeds of weeds. It is carried about, if not caused, by the floating pollen of wayside weeds like golden rod, ragweed and pigweed, for example. If weeds were kept down in this country as they are in Europe this most distressing disease would dis appear, for it does not exist in Europe except in those parts where weeds are allowed to thrive and it does not exift in the United States wherever THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, EDITORIAL PAGE, AUGUST 23, 1913 weeds are eradicated and not allowed to gain a foothold. Unfortunately for the hay fever suf ferers and fortunately for the major ity, the majority is apparently im mune to hay fever; but if they were not, not many years would go by be fore the cause of the greatest of eco nomic losses, the tolerance of weeds, would disappear and the energies of the public would be directed, as they ought to be now, to the prevention of weeds and their spread. NEW YORK'S MAYOR A strangely venomous, malicious, libelous, irresponsible person is the mayor of New York, says the New York World. He seems to be gov erned only by his prejudices, hrs hatreds, his resentment and his malev olent vindictiveness. Nobody is free from the assaults of his poisonous pen and his poisonous tongue. Nobody is free from whatever abuses of power !he sees tit to exercise. Tn his latest tirade against Mr. Whitman the mayor charges that the district attorney "instigated this open and forcible resistance at Healy's to the police in the performance of their duty specifically imposed upon them by the liquor tax law." Nobody knows better than the mayor that this is a falsehood deliberately concocted to 'deceive the people of New York into believing that Mr. Whitman is pre venting the enforcement of law. Nobody knows* better than he that the repeated exhibitions of police law lessness at Healy's had become a public scandal long before Mr. Whit man took personal or official notice of them. Nobody knows better than the mayor that no question of enforc ing the excise law was involved in these shameless police raids. Nobody knows better than the mayor that if Mr. Healy was violating the law, or if his patrons were violating the law, it was the duty of the police to make arrests, yet no arrests were made. Nobody knows better than the mayor that the police have no more right to throw people out of a restaurant than they have to set fire to the building. Nobody knows better than the mayor that Mr. Whitman intervened in the name of law and orderly government. The mayor's whole judicial career was a protest against the very sort of police lawlessness that he now sus tains. As a justice of the supreme court he once declared that officials who conduct themselves as did the police at Healy's "are more dangerous to society than all the other vices and crimes combined." The mayor is well aware that Mr. Whitman is right in this matter and that he and the police are wrong. It happened to suit his malevolent pur poses, however, to direct a police cru sade against the patrons of a certain restaurant. Possibly he did it to show his contempt for the court that had dismissed a complaint against the proprietor of the restaurant. What ever the motive, the mayor undertook to do with policemen's clubs what he could not do by law. He was stopped by the district attorney and so he is assailing the district attorney with the same venomous vindictiveness with which he assailed him when Mr. Whitman was prosecuting Becker and the police grafters. It was Pope who described Bacon as "the brightest, wisest, meanest of mankind." Mayor Gaynor is not the brightest or wisest of mankind, but in his capacity for meanness and malice he seems to have no rival. Queries Answered -» —— ,— » RADIUM—E. I* L..

Senators Warren of Wyoming and] Penrose of Pennsylvania addressed the senate for six hours, the former char acterizing the proposed bill as "tariff for politics only Instead for revenue only," and the latter asserting that the woolen schedule was "distinctly against America and for Europe." Tn the midst of the discussion, Sen- ator La Follette of Wisconsin Intro duced the third minority substitute for the woolen schedule, the others having been proposed by Senators Penrose and Smoot. The wide divergence of minor ity views on the subject of wool dem onstrated in this triumvirate of meas ures was pleasing to democratic lead ers, who confidently asserted that they did not need to talk because "we have the votes." Senator Stone, In charge of the wool schedule, failed In an effort to get an agreement for a vote on the wool schedule tomorrow evening.
