WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1915. ..... BLAsmG THE FOUNDATIONS OF THE REPUBLIC. The Tribune prints today the views of a number of representative citizens -of Oakland and vicinity respect-, ing the law which is'designecLtO destroy political parties in this state and which is being "feverishly and actively urged, and defended by. Governor Johnson.; and his personal followers. The opinions which we publish in this issue of the Tribune is, in the main, robustly opposed to Governor Johnson's plan to subvert 'party organizations, for the sake of perpetuating the control of the political clique in California now in office. Stripped of all the-ftne words and cant phrases which are employed in defending it, the non-partisan proposition is simply a plan to hold political power in this state for a considerable number of years for Governor Johnson and his followers. -; Our government is opposed to the idea of party rule. We tried the non-partisan plan in-the early days of the Republic and because it was 'a failure were forced to abandon it. The Constitution was amended in order to. take cognizance of parties. There are a score of sound, solid reasons why the nonpartisan law should not become operative. They are set forth elsewhere in this paper today.. California has been visited by a good many dis tinguished men this year, representing "Jill parties and shades of political opinion and thought. Jvlany ot inese men,xshocked by the bald and selfish attempt to fasten a non-partisan law upon the unsuspecting people of this state, have not hesitated to express their opinions on the subject. Judge Alton B, Parker of New York, formerly Democratic candidate for the Presidency Of the United States and one of the foremosfwyeri of the country, said he was unalterably Opposed to a non-partisan election law and the consequent destruction of parties. "I believe in political parties," said Judge Parker, "and think that it would be a serious mistake and a blow ot jur theory of government to destroy them." 'the Hon. Charles Warren Fairbanks of Indiana, former Vice-President of the !tJnitedStipressed.'Biinsdf. in the. same Sejise ...Hon. Champ Clark, Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives, "came out in a strong and emphatic declaration in favor of preserving parties and party or ganizations in the state arid denounced the California non-partisan law as "rubbish." Norman E, Mack, former Chairman, of the Democratic National Convention, has put himself vigorously or record as against this un-American and dangerous innovation. Yesterday Governor Willis of Ohio, in his speech before the Commercial Club of San Francisco, denounced jwith v&or the proposition and was cheered to the echo by the hundreds of intelligent business men who heard him.y There has not been a prominent man from any other part of the country any man of national reputation who , has said one wordtso far as we are aware, in favor of Governor Johnson's lion-partisan law. The leader, the organiser, the founder of the Progressive Party &ni its candidate for the Presidency in 1912, Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, spent ten days or more in California recently. He was met several hours before he reached San Francisco by Governor Johnson .and his friends and they had along talk with him on the political' situation before anybody else had a chance to see him. He was fully informed concerning the non-partisan law and knew to a . nicety exactly what Governor Johnson's interests in it arc, how deeply he desires to have it ratified by the people and jusi what it means to Johnson and the political group about him! In spite of this -knowledge; in spite of the fact that he knew, the significance of this law as a life and death matter, in a political sense t the John- scnian ringColonel Fkosevelt refused emphatically to say a word in favor of it. lie is against it. lie is opposeil to the non-partisan Jaw because he knows it is fundamentally wtgng and unsound. He will not put himself on record as fevoring a piece of legislation which is un-American, spurious and unnecessary; which would tend to take the spirit an J interest and zest from our political life. ' The best thought, the" soundest opinion, the most conscientious and loyal political belief of the country is ..opposed to this law. The Tribune can see no valid reason for supporting it. . OAKLAND'S HOTELS, We gather from talks with some of the leading business men of this city that,;Uiey are strongly of -opinion that traveling salesmen who come to Oakland to solicit business. ougjit. to. patronize the hotels of this city while they are engaged in disposing of their wares; here. 'Any traveling man of real intelligence ought to be able to understand that other things being equal merchants pre fer to have home industries patronized by those who 'are expecting to sell goods here, and take .money from the city. This is a perfectly understandable and just position for the merchants of Oakland to, take. We "have" several excellent holels irrthis city ami one of the best hotels west of the Mississippi River f is situated in Oakland.. Buyers and ' traveling --"saicsilien could find "here '"accommodation to suit their tastes 'and their purses. . Also there is abundant amusement for the transient guest in the evening. We have theaters, vaudeville house!, and moving picture shows in abundance. There is no reason why any one who expects to sell his wares to the people and merchants of Oakland shoiiM stay at a San Francisco hotel or-boarding house. We trust that our merchants will make. this; pointplain to those who come to sell their wares to them. The Oakland hotels are worthy of support and it is to the advantage of the city that they "should have liberal patronage. 4 ' A SUGGESTION. To the K.litor: I "was down to Ihrt laKe iie day and I thought it wasVerv beautiful. But it appeared m me that I knew a way. to make it '"beautifiiler." lnthe center of the .la kb have a hla slacier about two hundred feet high, and on its top put nozales, one with a spray, another that shoots, up, and a -curler,-. terf - and have colored lights from the shore at nlcht wfeen the moon Is out to shine on It andL tt would look like a beautiful rainbow, arid the people coming; out of the audl- toHumloQk. jovect)ir and " see - how magnificent it '.is. - ' Major Davie is golna; to put an island In the lake and then he ran put thia 1n the center of it. It would not be very expensive. . ' . ' ". : T. R. S. Oakland, Oct '5th. Rev.' Frank W. Gorman, vaudevijlian, will not create surprise by his statement that the stage is perfectly safe tor a minister. In fact we would bi surprised to find prevalent ahy idea -that the stage is not safe for a minister. It ought to be safer for a minister than for any one else. A lot of absurd condemnation has been uttered against the theatrical profession; as a training groundand experiment field for immorality. The pro fession as a whole has been charged with responsibility, for thousands of cases of original and individual disregard for the conventions, withouf any.-justification whatever. There are too many good women and hpn-orabl.tmcavin,4he business to pernlit any well-informed person assuming that virtue and honor cannot- endure the condition in and surrounding it. Brother" Gorman's testimony, however, will contribute little to changing the popular'conception of stage folk. A clergyman is presumed to be safe in any moral atmosphere. His mental and moral training are designed to make him immune to any of the ...seductions to which his fellow mortals are liable. His daily work and his daily thought are against immorality' and so he ventures,-into circles alleged to be "tainted" strongly fortified against temptation, conscious of his superiority and mindful .of the spiritual and material profit of remaining superior. If i- t "11- 1. . . . T nc laus ne Becomes an outcast, a panan. 11 a minister, actuated by the high motive of "first-hand investigation " was not safe on the stage it would indeed be time for surprise and we would be ready to take full stock in all the tirades against the stage. IN THE STREET CAR. . To Editor Tribune: This expectorating nuisance Is a nuisance, not only as regard health, but appearances1 as well. But why so much emphasis put on spitting In the streets, when so much Is done in our street ars? I see, two conspicuous examples of such offenders In my car almost every mornine: one. I believe, is mptoyAjHJLth.Lttjr. hall. and" I" know the other to be a lawyer. The former Is- particularly conspicuous In his expectoraniousnejSS (how about man, in that he seems to delight in having as large a pool of filth between his feet as possible before reaching town, and " generally gives one last squirt be fore leaving the car -at Broadway, as though ; he regretted he had no farther to go, so as to make a better showing. Sincerely yours, C, M. CLOUGH. "23SS E. C4th St., Oakland, Oct. 4, 1915. EYE GLASSES FOR OUR POLICEMEN. To the JSditor: I hope you will continue in the good work you are -doing In trying to. bring about safe and sani tary conditions on our streets, in the street cars and on- the platforms and waiting rooms of the railway stations. It is a disgrace and very disgusting to see the loafers On the corners of our principal streets spitting all over the sidewalks and curbs. The policemen are standing about but it seems they cannot see what is plain Int. -the e'fes of everybody else-.- I "would like to contribute to a find to buy some long distance and magnifying eyeglasses for the police of ficers. If' The Tribune will start such a subscription, i will make a contribution. . ,. S. E. ROBERTS, Oakland, October 5, 1915. Mr,. George Lambert, French Commissioner to the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, who has been here in'charge of the French exhibit' for many months! is about to leave for France. . Mr.. LanibettHs on f the most highly efficient and j admiral officials among the foreigners at. the Exposition and Kis-work as a commissioner has been perhaps superior to that of any other foreignparticipant. It is the consensus of opinion that the finest single exhibit at the Exposition is that of the French government. And when we consider what France had to contend with that" she is ?rvtiiig a life and death struggle an3 is called upon Iq exert eVery energy, at her command to protect her qvri soil-it is one of the marvels of the century that sheMshould have been able in the midst of w.ar to make this'inagr, nificent demonstration of her artistic, Commercial and mechanical activities in times of paa'ce. Without the French exhibit the Exposition would be sadly and lcaiily lacking in foreign participation. Mr. Lambert is entitled to great, credit for the installation ati'd artistic and pleasing presentation' of the French exhibits and we trust the Exposition-officials will mark his departure in a fitting' and impressive way."'"'" TOUCHES THE HEART, OF EVERY ' .-....PARENT. To the Editor;. --..The '- Tribune's exposure of the danger to the people and particularly to the children of this city from the "promiscuous spitting In streets and in public places); allowed by the police of .thts city in defiance of law, comes straight to the heart of every parent It is a well known fact that children, and young people are much more liablo to acquire tubereuloais than- elderly people. All of tis who have children owe a vote of thanks to The Tribune for Its splendid work in. trying to get the city cleaned up and made safe and healthy and decent to the eye. We hope the chief of police will hive enough sand to enforce "the two !aws which you referred to against spitting In public places, and we think he will if the gang around him will give him a fair chance. R. S. T. Oakland, Oct. 6, 19.15. dantFeutrality. OUR FOREMOST CONSULAR OFFICER. ' Washington dispatches to The Tribune announce that 111 i I C1 " .. Tl ' , t f . v t . . . ivooeri jl. pKuiner, united -states tousul-i.etu:ral 111 London, has been summoned by the Secretary of Suite for a consultation 011 the trade situation 'existing be- j tween the United States and Great Britain.

Consul-General Skinner, by practically unanimous verdict, is considered the foremost member of our consular corps, lie has had eighteen years; of active experience in Europe at important posts and in addition to meeting and discharging with conspicuous ability-j fidelity and energy the daily work and routine of his office, he has been an- assiduous student of underlying trade, commercial and industrial conditions and is probably the best informed man in our foreign service today in a practical way cm these problems. He is not pnly an expert upon Subjects appertaining to inter national commerce, ut he has fine personal and diplomatic qualities which enable him to make and keep friends wherever he goes. Mr.1 Skinner was transferred from Berlin to London shortly before the outbreak of the present war, and prior to his sojourn in Berlin he was for some years Consul-General at llatnburg, the most important port 111 continental Europe. Among well-informed Americans in London who are conversant with international affairs, it is an open secret that Mr. Skinner is quite generally considered by foreign officials, business men and bankers as a man of far greater ellicicncjr and usefulness than our Ambassador to An-interesting suggestion which has to do with the I development of ' the drama in -'"this city was made at a luncheon given by the Commercial Club Advertising Committee yesterday. 'Mr. Norman Haek'ett, an actor, submitted an argument in favor of municipal theatres. There is no reason, he observed," -why''" Oakland,' with her fine auditorium theatre, should not have a municipal theatre conducted on the same lines as those in the East. He pointed out the fact that the theatrical busi ness is undergoing a' season of great depression and that interest in the sound drama.. is being weakened-bv the apparent devotion of the-public to the 'cheaper sort oLvaudeville and motion pictures. 'Mr. Ilackett is of opinion that the drama should he treated as an important educational factor in the life of a community, and mat every city 01 consequence snotim nave a municipally owned theatre with an excellent stock company.
