Tbe apprehensions now being ex
pressed lest there be Insufficiency of
building materials or lest they be not
forthcoming in lime" for the exigency at
San Francisco are in part fanciful and
unwarranted. There is no sound reason
whatever to believe that the industrial
resources of the country are not ade
quate to supply the materials and facili
ties) for the rebuilding of the city with
sufficient promptitude and In accordance
with every substantial need. With re
spect to structural steel and the Innu
merable forms of metal employed In
modern construction, as well as of all
other materials, the country never be
fore 18 Its history was in so good posi
tion to supply an unusual demand. Nor
Is It likely that excessive prices will
have to be paid. On the contrary the
Strong probability Is that everything
necessary for construction will be avail
able at reasonable prices. It Is a fair
assumption that the spirit of helpfulness
so universally and conspicuously dem
onstrated by the banks In accommoda
tions, by insurance companies In liberal
adjustments and by commercial houses
In credits will equally manifest Itself In
the policy of the great Industrial con
cerns which manufacture and deal in
staple materials for construction.
One of the chief elements of cost of
such materials Is transportation, and
the railroad companies have been among
the first to show a liberal and helpful
policy. Beyond mere sentimental con
siderations, some of the greatest trans
portation corporations are as vitally In
terested as the people of San Francisco
themselves in the speediest and most
advantageous rehabilitation possible,
and as they have It In their power prac
tically to determine price through car
rying charge on such freight there Is
this sure check, in addition to many
others, upon undue expense as well as
In a large view there Is In truth more
cause for fesr of undue rapidity than
of delay in rebuilding. With abundance
of materials at reasonable prices there
will be tremendous temptation to1 build
hastily rather than securely and solidly.
Such was tbe experience of Chicago
after the great fire where, although the
new structures were better than the
old, yet miles of frontage was so hastily
and Inadequately built that before long
it had to be removed for better Work.
Unless San Francisco has great wisdom
and self-control the chance for quick
profit 'by quick though unsubstantial
building may cause tnuch of Its great
opportunity to be wasted.
JVO MORE FREE SEED.
Unless congress reverses the action of
the house committee on agriculture,
which it la not likely to do, there will
be no more free seed distribution.' Hav
ing originally a valid reason, the dis
tribution had for decades degenerated
Into a fake and a graft Under the con
ditions in which congress at first pro
vided appropriations for the purpose of
making available to our people varieties
of rare, foreign or otherwise unobtain
able seeds, the system was both prac
tical and beneficial. But since then we
have had not only a revolutionary ex
pansion of the seed business In private
and corporation hands, but also the ag
ricultural colleges and government ex
But the obsolete seed largess held its
place year after year In the appropri
ations because it afforded the meana by
which congressmen could without cost
to themselves even for postage produce
evidence of their remembrance and in
terest In gullible constituents. Practic
ally these diminutive franked packages
containing a pinch of seed were worth
less, although they" cost tbe government
a pretty sum In the aggregate. They
did, however, afford a profitable market
to certain seed bouses for their leftover
stocks which were no longer merchant
able In regular business, and which were
often worked off on the government
The better class of reputable seed
houses, however, are opposed to free
seeds as an unwarranted Interference
with legitimate trade.
It is worth while to note that the
free seed package does not go primarily
because It was a fake and a graft for
the free seed statesman long ago knew
Its true character, but because it has
become a publla Joke. ; It is discarded
because It is useless, not for agricul
tural but for political purposes. The
reform Is simply the effect of publicity.
JXSURAyct REFORM LEGISLATION.
Agreement between the two houses of
the New York legislature on the alight
amendments to the bill relating to per
jury and forgery practically, completes
the nerles of new measures for the regu
lation of life insurance, aa most of th
bills have already been approved by the
governor and all remaining ones al
ready passed will be duly signed by
him. These new measures practically
cover all the abuses and . violations of
law which were disclosed In the memor
able Armstrong investigation, and ex
cept by th absolute breakdown of pub
lic administration and complete default
of public opinion should render Impos
sible recurrent1 of the system of wrong
which had grown up to the hurt of pol
icyholders and the corruption of gov
ernment These reform, measures, some of
which are severely elaborate statutes,
revising thoroughly the old law and
adding a great number of new provi
sions where it was weak or altogether
wanting, go much further than merely
safeguarding the Interest of policy
holders and prohibiting evil practices
the management of life insurance.
thl field is covered as tbe abstracts
these measures published from time
tlin show. But very much of the new
legislation Is of a general character reg
ulating In the public Interest the meth
od of ail corporations as well as In-
sura nee. The prohibition under heavy
penalties of contributions to pollticsl
parties, for lobbying and all other Im
proper purposes Is not confined to In
surance companies. likewise the means
and requirements for publicity of cor
poration doings are Immensely broad
ened and strengthened. Hereafter the
officials of life companies and other cor
porations of like trust will Juggle with
books and records, concealing the truth
as. to the disposition of millions of dol
Isrs, as was so flagrantly done for years,
only with penitentiary doors wide open
before tbera upon conviction for the
Altogether the result Is one of the
most notsble achievements that has
been accomplished in a generation for
subordinating corporation management
to Its legitimate purposes, it is espe
cially notable and Instructive because of
the corporations Immediately affected,
being the wealthiest, the most, powerful
and the most strongly Intrenched, and
demonstrates that no corporation power
or combination can successfully defy
public power when the people are thor
oughly Informed and aroused.
ITHE.V "JIM" STARTS HIS RIDISQ
Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., hung around th
cowboy corral all day. lie wore a broad -rimmed
cowboy hat and amused himself
by 'chewing straw, whittling sticks and
talking horse. For a long Um "Teddy"
and Stanley Bullock, th ion of Beth Bul
lock, th leader of the cowboys, sat up in
an old buggy and discussed western life.
"Teddy" said Jie wanted to have a taste
of It. just a hi dad did, and asked Bul
lock if he thought there wa still a chanca
for a man to make money at ranching.
With a big crowd looking on. But fw
knowing who he waa, Teddy mounted Jim
Dahlman's fin bay and white pinto, and,
under th charge of Bill Vane of Texas,
the crack roper, took a few lessons In
riding and lassoing. He mad good work
of his riding and wore off some of th
awkwardness Incident to his first trial rope.

he( had chance enough, and asked him to

EXPENSIVE BILL BOARDS.
The verdict of $15,301 Just rendered
In favor of ex-Mayor George F. Beuila
against th city of Omaha for dam
age growing out of injuries sustained
by the collapse of a billboard reinforces
all that The Bee has said from time
to time about the billboard nuisance.
The toleration of billboards along our
streets, not only unsightly to the eye
and disfiguring to the general appear
ance of th city, but ' also . positively
menacing to life, and limb, is an expen
sive luxury for our people.
Other cities have taken up the prob
lem of the billboard and grappled with
it successfully, forcing abatement of
the nuisance. We know of no place
where the billboard protrude Itself so
flagrantly as It does in Omaha, without
let or hindrance, and no one la at fault
but our own citisens, who alt by with

in this large verdict, and should an

ROIND A BO IT NEW YORK.
Ripple on the Cnrrent of Ufa In the
Little old New Tork may be pardoned
for patting Itself on the back occasionally.
"A great many unpleasant things," ays
the Tribune, "have been said about New
York recently, but much that la good may
be saM about -a city which raises nearly
a million dollars In a day at the call of
humanity. Well and rightly said. The
great metropolis ha the mean to do it
and a large heart, when rightly stirred,
to prompt th doing. -Vp to last Monday
night the total i contributions to th San

the fund was being swelled at the rate of
a quarter of a million a day. There is
nothing the matter with New York when

Ists might have been expected to nave
shown special sympathy for one suffering
from an accident which could befall them
selves any day. But seemingly they did
not have a special sympathy, or any sym
pathy at all. ' Instead they howed, ac
cording to report, a strange coldness and
brutality almost unknown among human
kind." Ernest Chapman, a carpenter, picked up,
at Wall and New streets, a bank book
lost by a messenger of Wolf Bros. A Co.,
bankers and brokers at 100 Broadway,
which contained a check for $1,000,000, and
other checks tor amounts aggregating
$7SO,000. AH of them were payable to the
National City bank, relate the Sun. He
went to the Mutual Life building, where
he wa employed on work In the Northern
Pacific offices, and asked the railroad
officials what to do with bis find. They
pointed out the addres on the bank book,
and there the carpenter went.
"They led me past a lot of cubby hole
Into a little room In the corner." said Mr.
Chapman, discussing hi experience after
ward. "There at the desk sat a man who
didn't as much as turn around to look at
me. The man who was with m told him
I'd found something.
"Has h got It?" said the man at th
desk: not looking tip for a minute.
'He has, th other man eaid, noticing

" "Give It to me, said the other msn
without turning a hair. And. seeing from

turns over the book.

If they were of no consequence whatever.
'Here, give him this.' And with that he
hands a ten-dollar bill over hi shoulder
and the other man get It and gives It to
me and the big man never looks up an
never says 'Thank you' or 'Where did ou
find It? or anything that you'd most ex

work, wondering If I want that ten-dollar
bill o much, after all."
Slowly but surely th legal profession in

a long list of lawyer who have been con

find his claim swollen to $2,000 Snd mayb

was traced so directly to the office of Mr.
Mile, that hi conviction was a foregone
conclusion before the Jury retired. The

TUB MEADOW LARK.
I'v heard ye sing when non seemed nigh
To listen, till I've thought perchance
The meadow fairies standln' by
Hav coaxed a carol for their dance.
Could I but make y understand
now aear ye are, yet precious ining.
Ye'd come and perch upon the hand
That heeds not labor while ye sing.
In golden, sunshine-flooded Jun,'
Beneath th shade where Bephyrs play.
Barefooted I, from car Immune,
First learned to love thy roundelay.
If this great farm were your and mln
No bird should be molested here.
All timid creatures welcome dine.
And find a refuge from their fear.
Th shriveled heart and sordid rnlnd
That would destroy a bird thai sing,
Of every Joy would rob mankind,
And pluck th angela of their wings.
