SAN FRANCISCO. Cal., March 19.
(Special.) It's a cold -week when Mayor
McCarthy is not to ' the front in
the news columns, and this last week
has been no exception. The chief trouble
lias been because the irayor and his sup
porters in the Board of Supervisors have
decided to allow the United Railroads to
Operate its Sutter-street cars to the ferry.
To explain the situation., it must be un
derstood that the autter-street railroad
as originally owned had a franchise that
ended where Sutter strikes Market street.
When the United Railroads absorbed the
Sutter-street division, the same franchise
The Taylor administration refused to
Brant this concession unless the Calhoun
people would agree on their side to allow
the Geary-street road, which "Us owned
practically by the municipality, to run
on the Market-street tracks to the ferry.
Calhoun declined and for many months
has found it necessary to run horse cars
from Sutter to the ferry and to transfer
Now the McCarthy administration has
srantod this privilege, without securing
rights for themselves and a part of the
press is raising a hue and cry and pour
ing out the vials of wrath upon McCar
thy. i The Examiner, in fact, published a. sug
gestive cartoon. It represented McCarthy
and his supporters banqueted by Pat Cal
houn and 'his railroau associates. Outtlde
was a likeness of ex-Mayor' Sehmltz,
looking from the outside 1n and the
whole was labeled "Usurpers."
That McCarthy-Carnegie Incident.
The McCarthy -Carnegie incident was
; not enlarged upon by the newspapers
, during the visit to San Francisco of the
Ialrd of Skibo. The trouble started when
.McCarthy announced that he would not
allow Carnegie to aid a city library and
'that he would prefer no library to one
i endowed by the canny Scotchman. ,
' CTarnegie, of course, did not . reply to
this open challenge, but it was a note-
worthy fact that at the banquet accorded
: Carnegie by the Chamber of Commerce
the Mayor of the city was noted for his
absence. Gossip says he was not invited,
as it was believed by those In charge
that discretion would be the better part
' of valor.
Irwin Investigating Newspapers.
Will Irwin, who lives in New York,
but Is never at home, has arrived in
San" Francisco and is visiting his
friends. Irwin is a Western product,
who, since he graduated from the local
. room of a San Francisco newspaper, the
Chronicle by the way, has progressed 111
the larger metropolis as a newspaper
'man. magazine contributor and writer
; of books until today his -copy brings
: about as much per word as a carload of
California oranges brings per orange.
Regarding his present assignment, he
"I am out here as a part of an inves
tigation for a weekly of American jour
. nallsm. I am not muckraking, under
stand, and whoever telegraphed a few
weeks ago that I was engaged on a
series of articles on "The Poisoned
Press" was off. I am simply trying to
tell for the benefit of the uninformed
public, where journalism stands in rela
tion to the times."
The scope of Irwin's work is indi
cated by the fact that he will spend all
of the present year going from one sec
tion of the country to the other, visiting
newspaper offices and analyzing news
paper conditions before he begins the
shaping of his articles, which are
scheduled to begin publication early
It is understood that from San Fran
cisco, he will visit. Portland and the en
Governor Gillett Surprised.
While many serious moves are being
made in politics at this time, the large
number of up-ln-the-air things that
have been noted has caused this to be
called the "silly season" of the game.
An active Sacramento correspondent
of a San Francisco paper called up
Governor Gillett by phone, and the fol
lowing conversation was held:
"Are you going to be a candidate for
United States Senator, Governor?"
"I am not," was the unequivocal an
swer. "There is quite a movement in your
behalf in the South and many elector
there are Insisting upon your becoming
a candidate for the toga."
"Well, if the South cannot find a can
didate and wishes me to run as its rep
resentative, and the northern part of
the state also insists upon my becom
ing a candidate, then I will do so." was
the diplomatic answer of the Govenor.
The next morning, the Governor was
surprised to find In a portion of the
press that he had announced he would
enter the fight against Frank P. Flint
for the United States Senatorship.
Is -Devlin Going; Out?
Tii.-, story put in circulation some
months back that John I,. McNab, of
Ukiah. is to succeed Robert T. Devlin
as United States District Attorney has
been revived. The holding up of the
confirmation of Devlin's reappointment
by tiie United States Senate and the
fact that a bitter fight is being made
against him at Washington by Dr. Per
rin and the latter's friends has caused
a feeling of uneasiness to develop In
the District Attorney's orfice. The sit
uation at Washington is at least aoute
and the issue has been clearly denned
by Devlin himself, who, in "a letter
to Attorney-General Wickersham. de
mands an expression of approval or
The Perrin-Benson land-fraud trials
furnished tho basis for the opposition
presented in Washington against Dev
lin. An impression prevails here that
Devlin's disgust is so great that the
confirmation of his appointment will
be followed bp his resignation. Dev
lin is a man of considerable means. He
accepted the appointment of United
States District Attorney and came from
Sacramento to San Francisco to make
a connection here, and it Is said to be

ship and enter upon private practice.
English Polo Players Peeved.
Our visiting English polo players,
the men who are expected to carry off
the honors at the Coronado tourna
ment, are making a great pother about
the unsportsmanlike tactics of our
young men of Burlingame. Among
other charges is that polo ponies that
have gone begging at $350 each have
been unloaded on the Englishmen at
$1000 each. In fact, all sorts of un
pleasant accusations have been made.
It is said, for instance, that the Eng
lishmen do not consider they have been
properly received. They have been put
up at the Burlingame Clubl it is true,
but that is about as far as the courte
sies of the day have gone, according to
Then" too, a couple of crack polo play
ers from the East who recently arrived
on the Coast .have been made honor
ary members of Burlingame and- there
is a deep-rooted suspicion in the minds
of some that they may be used to bols
ter up Burlingame. At all events, the
affair has reached the stage where sev
eral members of Burlingame had quite
a dispute in the St. Francis the other
day. thereby securing for themselves
some undesirable publicity In the pa
pers. The "Sun" Does Xot Shine.
. Democrats here and there are asking
why the "Sun" is not published to carry
forward the doctrines of Jefferson and
Jackson. The "Sun" is the paper that
is to be when the Democrats get around
to It if they ever do. Signs on a Mis
sion street building read "The San
Francisco Sun" and these signs flap
idly Jn the wind. The building is empty
and forlorn. No Mergenthalers click
the're; no presses whiz and whir.
Yet we are told that 25,000 Democrats
have paid for their subscriptions in
advance and that many more have sub
scribed for stock. The paper is always
going to begin but It doesn't begin:

Xo Talk Over Earthquake.
Although there is unquestionably a ten
dency in San Francisco to make little of
the earthquake shocks that may happen,
tho two that were recorded last Thursday
week didn't amount to so much as the
outside public possibly imagined. There
were two shocks about 10:30 at night and
they were felt distinctly over the city. In
the big office buildings the night workers
were unpleasantly disturBed for the
nonce. Xobody was Injured, however, and
no damage done. In fact. San Francisco
had forgotten all about the shocks by
morning and but for the White Sox and
other Eastern visitors, no one would have
stopped to discuss the little occurrence.
Bruguiere Loses Good Job.'
Kmil Bruguiere, who gained notoriety
by the number of his marriages and
more recently by the divorce secured by
his wife, Vesta Shortridge Bruguiere, is
to quit the wine-selling business and join
his mother in Paris. In spite of his club
and society connections and his reputa
tion as a composer, Bruguiere in the par.
lanCe of the wine trade has "not made
good." His employers, it is said, are
tired of paying him $600 a month for sal
ary and expences, with but few sales to
show for it. So at the end of the month
he and they are to part company. So he
is going to rejoin mamma, who holds a
plethoric purse and who is looking after
the wants of her child and his divorced
wife. He threatens to write a comic op
era on the wine trade with some of tho
leading sellers here as the characters

Friends of Lathrop here, however, say
that -an expert in his employ has made

rop, himself, is one of the wealthiest of
the crowd. His sister left him a fortune
of more than a million dollars at the
time of her death and he has increased
that in sound business ventures.
" Xew York Character Here.
One of the interesting characters visit
ing the city just at present from New
York Is James Regan, manager for the
Astors of one of their $5,000,000 hotels In
the metropolis. Regan at one time
had a saloon and cafe in New
York. They wanted the place as
a part of the site for what Is now the
Knickerbocker hotel. Thinking they
would refuse, he named $150,000 as his
price. The Astors accepted and Regan,
never having handled .much money, in
duced the Astors to handle his coin.
They did it successfully an'd now Regan
can afford a private car. The New York
er is a great friend of Manager James
Wood, of the St. Francis, where he is

URGE FLEET MOVES
Big Advances Seen in Coast
wise Lumber Traffic.
THIRTEEN SHIPS IN MOTION
Of the Vessels Entering and Depart
ing Yesterday Xine Were for
Lumber Business March Ship
ments Will Be Heavy.
Coastwise business - out of Portland,
especially In the lumber trade, is Increas
ing even at a greater speed than the
foreign business. Tho tegular movements'
in the harbor yesterday consisted of the
arrival or departure of 13 coasting ves
sels in addition to two palling schooners
docked at St. Helens for lumber cargoes'.
Of the fleet moving yesterday one-pas
senger ship, one oil packet and four
lumber carriers arrived. The outward-
bound fleet consisted of one passenger
steamship, one oil carrier and five lumber
carriers. Pilots were kept on the jump
both at Astoria and Portland but not one
of the craft was delayed a minute.
For the. pa?t six weeks there has been
a steady strengthening of the lumber
markets at both foreign and California
ports. While the exports of lumber to
foreign countries) will not exceed those of
February, the coastwise shipments will
be' much greater and will probably ex
ceed those of the banner month.
Three coasters are scheduled to arrive
thia evening. They are the Falcon, Mave
rick and Ramona. The latter comes from
Coos Bay with passengers and freight.
The Falcon comes with 737 tons of gen
eral cargo, shipped from New York on
the American-Hawaiian steamship line
via Salinas Cruz and transshipped at San
Francisco. The cargo on the Falcon has
been in transit from New York only 37
days. This is faster than any of the rail
shipments from Eastern cities to the
Coast for a long time.
The Maverick is due today with fuel
oil from San Francisco and tomorrow the
steamship Nome City will arrive with
passengers and general cargo from San
Francisco and San Pedro. The Sue H.
