SATURDAY UVESXXGt OAKLAND TBUBUITE NOVEMBER 30, 190JL OAKLAND Tribune Publishing Company ROCKEFELLER'S FAMILY GOVERNESS. In contrasting the. treatment accord ed to two superannuated anil .impover ished servitors once employed In the families of' President Roosevelt, and John D. Rockefeller, the Call draws a comparison very unfavorable to Rockefeller. " While President Roosevelt deserves the highest praise for the care and personal sympathy he has bestowed on his- old family nurse, it does not follow that Mr. Rockefeller ha been wilfully derelict toward the poor old creature In San Francisco who was many years ago employed a& a nursery governess for his children. We do not know all the facts. Circumstances alter cases-There may be circumstances bearing on this particular case that Would Jus- which the public Is ignorant. The world is always ready to make complaints against the rich. John T. Rockefeller has been condemned because of his remorseless use of tncn.?y to stifle competition and amass more money. He Is regarded as the incarnation of monopoly, and with justice, in the public-mind he is associated with fabulous wealth and inordinate greed. Yet with all this, he Is known in hfs private life to be a man of munificent charities, lie and his family are almoners of the poor. He gives fr?el)to churches and educational institutions, and even his --npmirB piv him t-redit for doinir a great deal toward alleviating poverty and distress in hU vicinity. Granting all that is said against him to be true, is' It probable that he would neglect an aged woman who once served his family unless there was a reason for It. He pensions his c lerks and is extremely solicitous for the welfare of his old employes generally- ' That is well known. Why should he make an exception in this case? " Till the facts ere known no righteous judgment can be passed. i RAILROADS FOR WAGON ROADS. It has been a cherished tradition that the rallro-idx are opposed to good wagon roads. This notion probably dates back from the time when the construction of railways destroyed the freighting and staging business over the toll roads, some of which were exceedingly lucrative. But the Illinois Central, the Louisville & Nash-vila.and the Southern Railway, the three great systems of the South, are each promoting the good roads movement in a practical way and ateeonsid-erable cvpense. Kach of these companies has spnt special trains equipped with modern road making machinery, and supervised by competent engineers, over their lines to give the people object lessons In the art of making good roads- Stops are made at the principal points and sections of road built in the presence of deputations of farmers and merchants. Addresses on the subject of road making are delivered by experts, and literature showing the benefits good highways confer on a community is distributed. This valuable missionary work Is "making itself j felt throughout the fc'outht ""J a notable improvement in " the wagon roads of that section is the result. The rail-loads are promoting the rnovement on the sensible theory that their business la increased by better roads. i A LESSON IN PUSH. Down in Fort Worth, Texas, they know how to hustle and how to get Wlvat they want. Recently the Armour and Swift Packing Companies of Chicago each decided to ereot -branch packing "concerns at some point la Texas. Naturally there was great rivalry aimong Ihe cities of Texas as to which ehould be selected as the favored spot. Fort AVorth eet its cap for not one. tut txlii the plants. Oth-ver cities , offered irufcicements. So did- Fort Worth. 'After looking the It-round over the packing-house men aid they would Joealte their plants there If the citizens would give them a' bonus of $50,000 each. This is a tidy sum, out tne citizens gat logeuner and raised the money. Because of their pluck two packing houses to cost $1,000,000 are jrotng-up at Fort Worth, Ilere is a leaf out of the book of suc cess that other cities miglit reaid with profit. According to the census 1 of 1900 Fort, Worth had 27,000 irfhafoiUnts, tmtthey all stand op to' (be counted when there' anything doing. " According1 to ' Chancellor Hlcks- .

TRIBUNE. William E. Dargie, President WATTERSON'S GREAT ISSUE. Henry Watterson seems determined to make the Democratic party ridiculous. It has survived, every, other form of attack, but he is now courting dtath for by, ridicule. If it pan get together on Colonel Watterson's great issyi, the Booker Washington dinner, it will present a spectacle to move the gods to laughter. The Democratic party has been guilty of many inconsistencies aside from its grave indiscretions, but in arousing itself for a national contest on such an issue as the Kentucky editor suggests, It will convict itself of an absurdity outclassing all' previous" performances. It should have! for its funeral march a "coon song" set to rag-time music. Was ever a great party so pathetically poor in principles? It is out at the elbows so far as issues are con-cerned, or Its leaders would never dream of firing the "national heart because the President invited a particular gentleman to dinner. The long Ham of t evils Colonel Watterson sees in tho wake of this incident remind one of the complete destruction of the earth and its inhabitants that a scientist discerned in th extinction of the house f t. It may seem a far cry from hou3e jiflies to the Democratic party, but the distance is not so great sjfter all. After death the flies come. Let Colonel Watterson alone and the conjunction will be complete before very long. PSiit it would be a trifle sorrowing tor see the old party of Jackson and Jefferson die like a worn out Jester in cap and bells. If it be true that Senator Lodge will present a bill . prohibiting- Chinese im-miEratlon even more drasti'c in its provisions' than the so called Geary Act the people of this Coast can rest assured that Itfee danger of our ports being- rpopened to tlhe Chinese is fcfcut. Evidences multiply that the sentiment in favor of Chinese .immigration is less strong- ot at least less assertive thian it was when the exclusion law was passed. The resolution of the workinsr- men throughout the country has 'had a decided effect -on Congress because it represents! a 'sentiment that few can ignore. ! 1, j. "WHAT'S USE IN SIGHIN'?"

Common sense Is so common that few of us really use it, but a man like Roose velt comes along and will have nothing else for his mental food and moral drink but the ordinary wisdom of the race.

"-iBuSulo 'ews, ,-... . v ? SHE TELLS ABOUT THE GOLD STRIKE Betty Martin Knows the Ground Where Oaklanders Are Making Money. . The recent strike made by several fortunate Oaklanders up near Folsom only serves to show how luck runs. The claim is on the old Plum ranch, at Mormon Island, a little settlement on the Ameri can river, famous In the early days for the immense amount of gold taken out there, and pointed to with pride nowadays by the old settlers from the fact that the late Leland Stanford was at that period . engaged in doing business there in fact, they will indicate the exact spot -where his cabin was, and add that he "got his first start" there. The Plum ranch itself is a beautiful piece of property, given over for many years to peaceful agricultural life. Fruits and grains grow there abundantly, and old vineyards, long since abandoned, cover sunny slopes, blossom, bear purple fruit and die, unattended by the hand of man. N Right across the road from this ranch is the Blue Ravine mine, which In the last four or five years has made a for tune for the Sacramento company which developed it, and also the woman upon whose, property it is situated. If gold was to be found so plentifully at the Blue Ravine, why not across the street at the old Plum homestead?" So argued many Folsomites, with the result that several of them agreed to try their luck there. All of them -were poor some with families dependent upon them. But they were men of brawn and muscle good honest fellows who believed in 4.he old adage "Nothing venture, noth ing have." Besides that, they were Cal- ifornlans and knew what mining meant. Two or three of them had been em ployed as guard at the Folsom prison-notably Jo Pigmore, a keen-eyed, broad-shouldered mountaineer, celebrated locally from the fact of his having shot and killed two desperate convicts at the time of the big break in 1S03, when George Sontag and six other desperate criminals, all heavily armed, tried to escape. v ell, Prigmore, Mcllvane and the oth ers made two attempts to wrest for tune's favors from the earth and both of them failed. Through the heat of summer and the mud and discomfort of winter they toiled faithfully, sinking, during that time, two shafts. And although they jiever struck pay, they got what miners term "beau tiful color," but "color" alone doesn't buy bread and butter, so in . time these men gave up the work, returning to other employments. And right here the Oaklanders John Britton, Polk Gray, A. T. Eastland and others equally well known stepped In, and the Indications are will make big fortunes, for already the clean-ups have panned out well, and it is reported that the pay streak is many feet wide. These fortunate ones did not have to commence operations at the surface of the earth no, xhey simply began where the Folsomites ended at the bottom of the shaft abandoned by these men just on the verge of realizing their hopes and ambitions. However, the shaft wasn't sunk any deeper, but drifting commenced, and through this means a rich gold bearing channel exposed. It's pretty rough on the Folsomites to have strangers step in and make fortunes on the very spot where they didn't realize even enough to pay for bacon, but It's a mighty fine thing for the Oakland men to have luck come their way, for the prosperity of the individual means the prosperity of. the town also. Jmm 8 The other day, up on Broadway, a lady approached two gentlemen and asked them If they could direct her to the sub-Postoffice recently-established. Now, one of these men happened to be an ex-Mayor of Oakland, the other a well known newspaper man, and it would naturally be supposed that either of them could supply .such a piece of information4in- stanter. But no! both of them looked helplessly up and down the street, while one ventured the Information that it "used to be. in th corner where the piano store Is, but where it could be now" with a shake of the head, he didn't know. The other bethought him of the drug store up at the other end of the block, and sent the lady there for the desired information. In a few minutes she returned, Reaming with smiles, and pointed to a sign suspended immediately anove the heads of these two gentlemen, bea: ing the words "Suo Station m 'big 1 tera. They were standing before tpe very door of the Postoffice, and didn't know it." "Well," said the ex-Mayor, turning to the newspaper man, "if that isnT; just like Oakland!" 8 tC The habit. some merchants have of exposing uncovered goods for sale on the sidewalk, or entrance to their places of business, cannot be too strongly condemned. The day before Thanksgiving this was painfully in evidence. Some of the delicatessen stores had everything "fmaghi-able in sight, from salads and sauerkraut down or up to pies, and grocerymen and others followed suit with dried fruits vegetables, fish and meat, and some of them even went so far as to have on the sidewalk big barrels of candy. In consequence. - the flies bad their biggest feast on ednesday, instead " of Thursday, or all these goods were black with swarming multitudes of files and all sorts of , little Insects intent upon making thelr living. How any one can buy such things is a marvel, and that the lioard of Health has. jiot long ere this taken the matter in hand is still another marvel. The sight of food covered with files is disgusting enough to turn the strongest stomach, and there is a big element of danger connected therewith alsoIn the. East a vigorous crusade is being inaugurated against the custom of thus exposing eatables, and I sincerely .hope thf matter will soon be taken in hand here by the proper authorities.

SlCONO-HARB SCKOOV BOOKS A SPCCULTT MELROSE SCHOOL IS DEDICATED Speeches Made by iC 0. Crawford, Rev. Baker and Many Others. The Melrose Public School was dedicated yesterday. Rev. E. E. Baker de livered the address. The invocation waa delivered by the Rev. Hugh w. Fraser, and immediately following the children of the school made the walls of the building ring with the strains of "The Red. White and Blue." Clerk R. H. Roane read a report, the chief Item of Interest being that the new building had cost exactly $15,167.27. T- O. Crawford, County Superintendent of Schools, told of the struggle that had been made to secure It and aid it should stand as a monument to the determlna Hon of the Trustees and the people of Melrose. He gave the children some good advice on the subject of respect for elders and reminded the latter of the scriptural warning against placing stumbling blocks in the paths of the little ones. State Superintendent of Education Thomas J. Kirk and P. M. Fisher, principal of the Polytechnic High School, also delivered short addresses. Mrs. Joseph Bardellinl, Miss Rita Slater and Miss Lulu Smith contributed a num ber of vocal and instrumental musical se. lections. At the close of the exercises everybody joined the children in singing America. W. STOKES KIRK A BRISK ONE. W. Stokes Kirk, the Philadelphia merchant, whose specialty is speculation In Government munitions, including light and heavy ordnance, has amazed the business men. of San Francisco and Oakland by his commercial methods in the former city. Some time ago he leased nearly the entire building at 517 Market street, and since then has been engaged in selling at paltry prices thousands of guns and revolvers which he - purchased from the United States War Department. Every floor of the edifice he is tenanting is devoted to the display of rifles, carbines and other firing weapons. Mr. Kirk has branch houses in Chicago and Seattle. Of sturdy build, quick judgment, keen perception, he is, in years and all, almost the personal prototype of M. J. Keller Oakland's noted merchant. Mr. Kirk has made his present quarters the busiest scene in the Pacific Coast metropolis.

Ismar, who for months has been a potent attraction in San Francisco, will not come to Oakland, as announced, and give professional advice. . She has decided that intending clients in this neighborhood shall either visit her in San Francisco at her study, 1148 Market street, or else must seek her counsel by letter. Ismar has a gift of cognition that has surprised hundreds of communicants. Yet, learned as she is, and. wonderful as are her utterances when imparting instruction, still, the things that she discloses do not proceed from "black art" any more than do the truths which are stated by skilled physician or sage coun-selor-at-law. The -patrons of this renowned woman are not members of any one social ctass. although much of her steady custom is undoubtedly drawn from fashionable circles. But it is an axiom that wealth cannot yield immunity from trouWe. Ismar is of the Romany people, but is also of pure Egyptian ancestry. From Paris to Washington Without Changing Cars. (From a Washington Dtopateh.) From Paris to Washington by rail and without change of cars is the project of M. de Loebel of Paris, w'ho has come to Washington to describe his plan to President Roosevelt and other high officials. M. de Lobel is credited with having been identified with important enterprises in France. He has just returned from Alaska, where he has been for four years superintending surveys and prospecting. He represents a French syndicate and proposes to organize an American and a Russian syndicate, each of which will be affiliated with the French syndicate in bringing a huge project into tangible form. The plan is to build a railroad fin Alaska from Eagle City to the Bering Sea, at a point near Cape Nome. Also a road from a point on the Siberian coast, which has as yet no name, to connect with the Trans-Siberian Rail road. "I small see President Roosevelt, if possible," M. de Lobel said. "From here I shall go to Paris and then to St. Petersburg to see the Caar. After getting a franchise from the Russian gov ernment, I shall return to Washington in the (interest of getting a right of iway tnrougn Alaska, "Leading financiers of New York. San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia ana otner cities, nave already given assurances or . taking hold of . the pro ject.

Mr. Barnes says that girl waitresses are "neater, quicker and cleaner." One of the sub-si'peTintendents, in protesting against this innovation, says: "The Vork of a waiter, on a dining-car consists principally of extracting corks, a species of service that would be neither suitable nor congenial for properly reared young women.
