TUESDAY, JULY 15, 1902. PUBLIC OWNERSHIP. The Sacramento Bee publishes a sound and well considered editorial on socialism, called forth by the extreme views of a correspondent, who virtually advocated confiscation of property rights as a remedy for existing and acknowledged evils of the capitalistic system. The Bee justly concludes that "if the wealth of the world could be equally distributed per capita the greater part of it would soon disappear in waste, extravaand idle living." It would cergance tainly melt away from the hands of the idle, extravagant and incompetent, and roll into the coffers of the industrious, economical and capable and in a very few years the same inequalities in the distribution of wealth would appear Human nature, working under the eame laws, would inevitably produce the same effects. But these inequalities of distribution will grow less as civilization advances.

Public ownership of ntilities is destined to be one of the most potent factors in effecting such a desirable consummation. On this question the Bee says: "The remedy is not confiscation, which is alike visionary and unjust, but pubhe ownership and control of public utilities, national, state and municipal. The construction of an iethmian canal by the government is an example of public ownership likely to be followed in time by government acquisition and operation of railroads. The producers must the power of unlimited taxation eventually become too wise to fruits of production, as exercised by the masters of transportation, to remain in a few hands, more especially as railroading interests, under private ownership, tend conetantly to greater consolidation and the total elimination of competition The congress which but recently adjourned is chiefly commendable for what it didn't do. The Fowler bill, a republican measure for reorganizing the currency, is an example in point.

It provides for an asset currency, branch banks and a redeemable silver dollar, a consummation the money power has been aiming at. for many years, but which seemed to be beyond its reach. The inauguration of the plan woull mean the destruction of the greenback and the reduction of silver to token money. It would take away from the government the right to issue and control the money supply of the country and turn that sovereign power over to the bankers, who could inflate or expand the currency as might suit their private interesta. Concentrated capital, which now exercises undue influence over the government, would then be supreme in all branches.

This iniquitous measure is not dead, but sleeping. The way to kill the measure is to elect democratic congress. American manufacturers in many lines can now undersell the foreign manufacturers in foreign fields, and they are doing it right along. The American manufacturer pays ocean freights and foreign customs duties and still competes successfully in the foreign field. These same manufacturers charge the ican consumers a great deal more than they obtain from the foreigner for the same articles.

In all such cases why shouldn't the tariff be removed or lowered? In a system commendable which thus discriminates against our own ple? Isn't it high time for tariff revision? The Quay machine in Pennsylvania in in danger of being smashed at the polls next fall. The democrats have nominated Pattison for governor, who has twice been elected to the office under similar conditions, and the chances are bright for a third triumph of honesty and decency in the state's politics and in the administration of its public affaire. If the people should elect Pattison they would do well to make democratic administration permanent, POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENTS. J. H.

Woodling occurred yesterday at the home of the bride's mother on East Washington street in this city. Only a few of the very intimate friends of the bride were present. Miss Marie Hayden was bridesmaid and Dr. C. P.

Holland, brother of the bride, was best man. The wedding was, as it was intended to be, a quiet and simple affair. Shortly after the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Woodling left for Chicago from which city they will visit points of interest on the Great Lakes.

On the way to San Bernardino, where they will reside, Mr. and Mrs. Woodling will stop at Milwaukee, sas City, Denver, Salt Lake and San Francisco. Both parties to the marriage are well known in San Bernardino, Miss Holland having lived here for several years. The groom is one of the city's best known young men as well as one of the most popular.

They will reside in this city, after their wedding tour, for the present at No. 559 Fourth street. Sunday evening a telegram signed by thirty of Mr. Woodling's friends was sent from this city to Bloomington. This morning an answer addressed to the "mob" was received from Chicago.

The "mob" was satisfied. Ontario Annexation Case. Judge Bledsoe's order to show cause in the case of W. T. Leeke against the Ontario board of trustees was filed in the clerk's office today.

Aldridge AND EMBAMER 440 Third Street. FINDS Himself in the Path of Tracy Does a San Bernardino Man. He Knew Two Californians Who Would Catch the Outlaw in Six Hours. Seattle, July visit at Seattle and surrounding country was very delightful. We seemed fated to be indirectly in the path of that outlaw Tracy-this part of the country is full of the name of Tracy.

Some of the Seattle papers have been, and still are, issuing "'The eight-extra," showing how much interest there is manifested in this outlaw. I have never known anything approaching it, except, in Alexander Dumas' descriptions. We visited Ravenna Park just after he had escaped, Just after our visit to Washington Lake Tracy appeared there. We are not pursuing him. It is the judgment of many people here that the possi are all afraid of him.

I heard a man say, yesterday, "He knew a couple of Californians that would catch him in six hours." Seattle is one of the most pushing and energetic commercial cities we have seen in the "far west." Evidently it is outstripping San Francisco for first place on this coast. It seems so at least to many living in this section. The surrounding country with its mining. lumber and agricultural interests will support this city indefinitely. There is a concentrated interest here on the part of the capitalists to make Seattle a great city.

I really think they will succeed. Everett is the county seat of Everett county, known as the "Pittsburg of the The enormous flour mills, lum ber mills, smelters, iron factories, contribute to make this city of 18000 population a very important place in the near future. This city has doubled in population in the last three years." The schools are admirable in all their departments. Public buildings are fair in their appearance and quite roomy. Churches are keeping pace with the general march of progress.

This city has a great future. Monte Cristo is 02 miles by rail from Everett, running up to the Cascade mountains. It is one of the most beautiful places we ever visited. It is nature in majesty. The diversity of fern, flower, foliage, cedar and mountain snow capped -Switzerland has not anything more beautiful in our judgment.

The music of the Stillaguamish river is as clear and silvery in its ripple as the music of a silver bell. The enormous trees astonish the traveller and the mountains, the big four, ranging from 8000 to 12000 feet high, bid defiance to time and the researches of man. It is a veritable paradise. Through the courtesy of the Monte Cristo railroad superintendent we were shown many courtesies. This is a great country and the rainy days are many.

Price, father-in-law of Willarn Yager, a well known Santa Fe railroad man of this city, was instantly killed Sunday evening in Los Angelee by several young men who were racing on bicycles. Price was a peddler and was the sole support of a wife and six children. He formerly resided in this city.

J. Clyde Olsen and Eugene Bressin are under arrest for killing Price. Olsen collided with the peddler and Bressin ran into the two. The other racers are being sought by the police. Willard Yager went to Los Angeles this afternoon to attend the funeral.

Downing street, London, perpetuates the name of a clever man from Massachusetts. Those were the days before the Fourth of July had any significance in American annals, and George Downing, the first scholar in the first public school in Massachusetts and the first graduate sent out by Harvard college, came to England and became a chaplain in Cromwell's army. By a remarkable stroke of fortune he was sent to represent England at The Hague when Europe was trembling before Oliver, and during three distinct eras in England's history he held the office of British embassador at the Dutch court. He was as popular or as clever under the Merry Monarch as under the protector and the commonwealth, and it came to pass, in the reign of Charles that the man from Massachusetts was granted 11 great tract of land at Westminster, where he built huge mansions and laid out Downing street. To this day Downing's street is Downing street still, and, though George Downing is forgotten, there is 110 name in the British empire which is more familiar to us than James Gazette.

Downing Street. Guests Pass With Ginciers. Hotel keepers in the Alps have a new trouble and are complaining of the loss of patrons, who are moving away from the glaciers. Yes, the attractive glaclers are actually passing from the landscape, and as they recede the hotels along their borders find that their registers are shortening. These glaciers are not running away by any means, but they are deterioratslowly with persistency that means their final annihilation.

Hotels that a few years ago stood very near to a great river of slowly moving ice now find themselves a considerable distance away, and the attractiveness of the site is lessened. The famous glaciers of the Rhone have shrunk 3,000 feet in the last twenty years, or about 110 feet a year. A number of the well known glaciers approximate this diminution, and the seientitle fact is established that these reminders of the great glacial period are surely disappearing. Placing Himself. One day a drill sergeant in the British army had a number of recruits to drill and wanted the married men separated from the single ones, so he formed them in a line and gave the word of command.

"Single men advance and married men fall back in the rear!" All took their positions except one. an Irishman, who stood still. The ser. geant asked the reason why he had not moved. but no answer came from Pat.

"Come, my man, are you married?" "No." replied Pat. "Then you are single?" "No." "Then what are you?" "I am courtin' Biddy," was the reply. Rebuffed. "You have so much address I can hardly be expected to compete with you," said the letter to the envelope. "Now, don't get excited," replied the envelope, "because you know you can't contain yourself." PALACE RESTAURANT There are restaurants and restaurante, and The Palace is the one that will suit you.
