But I can tell you, anyhow, I*d rather ace than be one. —GELBTT BURGESS. Friends of exquisite Ned Greenway. quoting to themselves the foregoing rhyme, are alarmed by the dispatch coming from Paris to the efteet that the male fashion leaders of that city are appearing in public with thetr hair lived purple, blue, green and all the other violent colors of the rainbow. Not that Ned Greenway has yet dyed his hair purple. But his friends have it in mind that he is always. In the forefront of the army of fashion, that he declines to be behind the society leaders of any city, even Gay Paree. FRIENDS FEAR RESULTS And his friends fear the worst. They are picturing him swinging his debonair way down Powell street with his hair dyed a cunning purple or a fetching cerise. If he does, imagine the dire re sults! For where Ned Greenway leads, the other Beaux Brummel of San Fran cisco always follow. Mayor Rolph for instance, as one of the handsomest men in the city, could hardly afford to fall behind in the march of fashion. Imagine him presiding at a meeting of the board of supervisors with hair of a sunset pink! THINK OF BLI'E SHORTRIDGE And Sam Shortridge, that glass of fashion—would he permit any man to precede him in the pursuit of manly pulchritude? His habit of appealing to the stars and stripes when he wants to emphasize a sounding period or round a phrase would naturally incline him to adopt red, white and blue as his hirsute color scheme. Larry Harris is a modest person and his tastes, presumably, would incline toward the less violent tones, such as Alice blue. Gavin McNab, being a determined sort of person, might be expected to adopt some more pronounced color, such as cerise or sea green. Tom Jennings, being a supervisor, would, of course, be required to pick some color complementary to what ever shade his honor the mayor adopted. HOW ABOUT 808 FY BE It is a question whether Bob Eyre would look better with his hair col ored violet or blue. He might com promise by wearing one shade on the right side of his head and the other on the left side. Franklin K. Lane can hardly be expected -to adopt the new fad, in view of the fact that he is said to comb his hair with a towel. Anyway, we men are gradually catching up with the women, though it must be admitted that in this re spect we have taken a good while to' do it.

CALUMET, Mich., Dec. 27— "Any charge by Mr. Moyer that I had any part in the occurrences of last night at Hancock is absolutely and un qualifiedly false," said James Mo- Naughton of the Calumet and Hecla company today. "I passed the even ing in Calumet, accompanying my wife < ailing on friends, and later walking across the street from their home to a social club.

"It is a little more than a mile to Hough ton, where the mob took me. All the while they were pulling me along the others were yelling, 'Lynch him!" and 'Hang him!' and calling me the vilest of names.

R«vrm found Kiillty and his license sus pended for 18 months. Captain R. J. Panlsea and Second OJflcer Thomas L. Mathtcarn exonerated. Such was the verdict handed down today in the case of the steamer Pres ident, whose officers were accused of negligence in the drowning of four men from their ship November 26. J. Guthrie and J. C. Dolan, local in spectors of hulls and boilers, said in their decision: That Chief Officer Ravens dis regarded the orders of the mas ter to "stand by the emergency boat and await orders," and per mitted said boat to be lowered at the time it was and without providing the crew with life pre servers. We are of the opinion that if he had not permitted the emer gency boat to be lowered at the time it was, but had waited until a lee had been made for it, the boat would have been launched with safety, and the passenger might have been saved. LOWERING OF BOAT ERROR The lowering of this boat on the weather quarter was a grave error as the results have shown. Therefore, for reasons of this negligence and under the autho lty of section 4450 revised statutes of the United States, we have to suspend your license as master pilot steamers and master's sail vessel, No. 47,157, issued 3-5, for 18 months.
