The Weather.
Tonight and Friday, fair.
Not speaking for Itself, but for a
largo number of inumbors of other
parties, who have left the Citizen's
jnovoment In disgust, The Journal
makoB this statement of reasons why
tany honest man who favors good gov'
onimont should learo It:
Tlio Citizens' council abandoned
the popular loan plan of funding t.lc
city bonds that fell due tho past year,
ito save tho oxponso of a special elec
tion, when tho Interest they would
have savod would have several times
liald the expense.
They refused to glvo the peoplo the
bonetlt of Uio Australian ballot law,
on tho ground of expense, and, In
atoad, forco the poll tax law, to koep
ae many as posslblo from voting.
They went back on their own light
ing contract, the beet the city ovor
had, under which they claim the city
hns savod fll.COO, after the managers
hold a socrot mooting at which It was
propound to hold up the contract tq
promote "real ostato Intoroats."
They enacted a restrictive bicycle
ordlnanco that was unoalled for, tlion
went back on it, and when It was re
vived by voto of tho mayor, rofusod
to enforce It.
'Thoro arc but few of thoso loft In
tho Citizens' movement, aside from
thoso In ofllcc. and men like I'ohla
and LnrHon, who woro too houost for
tho Insldo manipulators, and wore re
fused nomination by niou who wantud
to use thoiu.
Tho Journal for ton roars has con
tended for Direct Nomination primar
ies, and tho Uepubllcatm are tho first
to' glvo that right to the people of
choosing their own candidates.
Tho Citizens' have adopted a close
corporation, partisan plan of nominat
ing candidates, which places tho nom
inees under tho direct pressure- of a
few manager, who are uot above
serving selflsh human imprests.
llev. P. S. Knight was selected by
nn Inside committee, headed by Judge
Jltdah, who placed him before the
convention, and the convention was
not oven left to choose among a mini
bqr of eligible Republicans and Dem
ocrats who would have made aa good
a mayor.
This Is not saying that there are not
HOod men atlll holding otflce under the
Cltlaen's movement, or that there are
npt some good men nomInatel thl
year, but they are being dictated to
liy selflsh personal Influence op
poI to progreee, and Inimical to
good government.
The nominations for mayor and
aldermen were hawked about by a
elfeoiatItutd central oommlttee,
not made by the people of the wards,
or of the city at targe. Oh top of this
pledge have been exacted, ami se
cured, for Ihem io obey the orders ol
ftHOthmr eomllaUoH. The lteimbltean
itsiulueee are responsible to the iwo
ple dlreft. Inatend of through two or

Mavu The Journal do uet aseume
that any corruption was charged
against Mr. UpUe.
The mattrs nuhllehfU for the cam
jwlga oommlttoe are vt to contain
overatateuients, Ut Ma Dolso's ol
Joctions to Mr. Herman Pohlo being
ronomlnation for alderman In the sec
ond ward, were made In hia own In
terest, rather than In the lnterost of
the public
Mr. Boise cannot deny that he lias
boen chairman in this Citizen's cam
paign of one of the most Important
committees, and that nearly all the
meetings this year, and in other
years, have been held in his office.
The fact remains that If Alderman
Pohle had compiled with all of R. P.
Boise, Jr's, demands It would have
beon highly proper to retire him from
the Citizens' ticket, when It has now
tho appearance that he was retired be
cause he did not meet Mr. Boise's de
mands. - x
From the unrofutcd statement of
the cose, R. P. Boise, Jr., is the man
who should be retired from the man
agement of city politics.
To charge that a raanagor of a po
litical party seeks to use that party
for his own personal advantage Is not
a charge of corruption.
But for an alloged xnon-p'artlsan
manager of a reform movement to
object to an alderman for doing his
duty Is a matter for consideration.

Holiday Publications That
Are Worth Looking at
This Time of the
The Christmas Century Is, a great
big annual, overflowing with colored
plates, poems, stories, and high-class
lltorary performances too numerous
to catalog in a small newspaper. But
the spirit of the thing Is what quite
gets away with us the rlahnoss of
printing, contents and- general make
upa great big overflowing horn-of-plonty
stylo of publication. It Is
nearly heaven on oarth among peri
odicals. '
Outing is a splendid monthly of
sport, travel and adventure, spiced
with sketches of country life and
wholesome outdoor Action. Each
number has a review of the sporting
events in which the editor, Casper
Whitney, tolls what he thinks about
things, and if it is not just what other
sporting mon think, it is generally
better than they. think. His fearless
defense of humanity in the troatmont
of game Is also worthy of commenda
tion. '
Petorson's Magazino Is sustaining
the roputatlon It has Justly earned of
offering to its readers a most happy
combination of bright, ontertalnlng
fiction and clever articles on ub-
Jects of timely Interest. This art of
presenting useful Information In a
manner to hold the attention of the
casual reader is one not easy to at
tain, and Pearson's Magazino Is to be
congratulated on the success It has
always achieved in this line. The
loading article In the Decombor Pear
son's is the first of a series on the
organization and management of the
gigantic industrial corporations of
the present day, to bo contributed by
Mr. Henry George, jr. His initial ar

The new publishers of Everybody's
Magazine declare the holiday Issue of
the publication to be much the. beet
they have yet producod. It is not the
typical Christmas number made up
of stilted fiction and pictures of the
festival In many lands. It is just an
especially lively and entertaining
magnslne, full of really good stories,
clever pictures, and well-written and
timely articles. The TUdgway-Thayer

Ilea the December Atlantic has nor

the grammar grades and tho first
years of the high school.
The Pacific Monthly marks the
close of Its tenth volume with the
publication of tho largest and best
number of that magazino that has
erver boen Issued. Indeed, it is no
stretch of tho truth to say that it Is
the host number of any periodical
ever Issued on the Pacific Coast. In
volume, It Is twice the size of the
Issue for December of 1902, and a
glance at Its contents will provide
evidence that, in tho value and high
character of Its articles, the Interesi
and quality of Its fiction, the vigor
ous timeliness of its editorials, and
tho profusion and beauty of its illus
trations, tho magazino has surpassed
all provlous effort.
