The sale, which, entered its third day today, has already set a reoord. snd by the time deliveries are begun, nest Saturday, it is expected that the first comers will have -made) such a hole in the big stock that the late ones will be forced to si-ramble for the remainder. O. R. Tyson, sales manager of Pra gers, who has been in close touch with the tree sale since the first 1.000 trees were displayed at the store, said today: "It's a great stunt.

EDITORIAL PAGE The San Francisco Call and Post F. W. KELLOGG, President and Publisher JOHN D. SPRECKELS, Vice President and Treasurer Good News Comes to Us From Washington The President Promises a Government Exhibit in 1915 Which Will Be Good for Everybody San Francisco is having fair weather in Washington. The storm has blown away. The president has made known his decision to ask congress to make an appropriation for an exhibit at the Panama-Pacific international exposition. An appropriation of $500,000 will doubtless be made. As for the Panama-Pacific international exposition appropria tion, over that there is bound to be talk and controversy. The point will be raised that when California asked that San Francisco be designated as the place for holding the celebration to mark the opening of the Panama canal to the commerce of the world it was expressly stipulated by the exposition community that not one cent of government aid should be asked for. Nor will it be. The United States g...

One of the strongest arguments put forth by contestants ln The Call's big penny contest favoring the advent of the penny Is that without it the mer chant is the gainer and the consumer the loser in business transactions. This feature Is well taken, consid ering the cry against the high cost of living. As some of the letter writ ers contend, poor families are obliged to count the pennies and the loss of one or two a day means a lot to them ln the aggregate. The letters from eager contestants are still...

They Never Look for a New Manager to Take Charge of a Pennant Winning Team CALL'S DOUBLE PAGE OF SPORTS CINCINATTI HIT IS ON ITS WAY Powers of Baseball Likely to Legislate It Out of Com mission Next Year JOE MURPHY The "Cincinnati base hit" is likely to pass out of existence before the followers of the game are really ac quainted with it. It has lasted a sea son in organized baseball, which was entirely too long, and lawmakers of baseball who are to meet shortly and frame rules for the coming season are about to put the crusher on Garry Herrmann's crude piece of baseball legislation. The passing of the Cincinnati hit will be welcomed by the players and followers of the game, as there is nothing to recommend it. A player Is given credit for a hit that he does ' not deserve, while the pitcher is given a black mark when he really is de serving of credit When the fans became acquainted with this farcical rule, they voiced their disapproval of it.

The Old Fighters Might Have Been Game, But They Did Not Figure As Financiers NEWS WRITTEN BY LEADING EXPERTS LETTERS POUR IN ON McGRAW, WHO TOSSES THEM AWAY QUICKLY CHRISTY MATHEWSON McGraw gets a bunch of mail every day throughout the season that looks like the result of a promotion letter from a phoney mining stock corporation just after it has tapped the "sucker" list and just before the federal government takes a hand. He runs through it hastily, as he does everything else, generally just giving the addresses a glance and hurling the missives in the direction of the waste basket, without even submitting them to the indignity of tearing them up. One day last season, toward the end of the National league race, McGraw looked at the first envelope on the pile of mail lying before him. "There's that sporting editor in Pennsylvania writing to tell me now to win a world's series again," he said, as he hurled the letter at the waste basket and got credit for an error on a wild throw.

EAST HOLDS KEY TO MIX IN POLITICS Near Future of Republican and Progressive Republican Parties Held in Abeyance The near future of republican and progressive republican politics in Cal ifornia today hangs largely on what the party leaders in the east will do. A plan to reunite all republicans and make a single fight instead of a four cornered battle royal—to Bay nothing of the democrats—is being held in abeyance. The movement for amalgamation «Jvaa started at the conference of the Drew-Hewitt progressive republicans, •which former Speaker Hewitt failed to attend.
