Editor Woman's Column, Morning Call: A few weeks ago Attorney Horace G. Platt lectured before the San Francisco Women's Educational and Industrial Union on the subject, "Women and Law," and the report as given in the papers is well calculated to set one thinking. As reported, he first expressed himself opposed to woman suffrage, can see no reason why women should wish to vote, and declares that women with the ballot could accomplish no more than men are doing for them.

A SIMPLE STYLE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890

A SIMPLE STYLE. Suitable for a City or Town Lot of From 25 to 30 Feet Front. It Is Sufficiently Odd to Suggest a little 0 dity in the Decorating snd Furnishing at Small Extra Cost. Written for The Call. HE home-' stead under consideration in this issue Is ! a vbo use - of •'simple stylo and character, suitable for a city or town lot of from 25 to 30 feet frontage. The house proper occupies a frontage of 22 feet; the style is quiet and simple, yetmodern enough to avoid the commonplace appearance so common in houses of this grade, ; In this illustration the construction Is suggested as almost wholly of wood, but where necessitated by city building restrictions brick can be substituted at a moderate addition of the original cost. There is enough of oddity in the design to suggest a little oddity in the decorating and furnishing; oddity may suggest additional expense to many, but that need" not necessarily imply, for a little care ln hunting through a well-stocked furniture establishmen...

A CAPTAIN IB TROUBLE. lis lirei.l.s the -tenia on the Hatches Without I Ml 1..X.11. Captain Thompson of the American schooner Challenger has been notified by the Surveyor of the Port to appear and answer a charge of opening the hatches of his vessel without the permission of tbe Custom-house. The Challenger arrived from Apia, Samoa, a few days ago, and her hutches were, as usual, sealed by a Custom-house Inspector., Yesterday it was discovered that the seals had been broken and five boxes of coin consigned to John Parrutt & Co. taken out and delivered to the consignees. Captain Thompson received a permit to open his hatches, but neglected to Inform the Inspector that he was going to take away the coin, and consequently no Customhouse officials were on hand when the seals were taken off. The penalty for the violation of this regulation is a SSOO fine. The Challenger is the vessel from which two sailors escaped iv an open boat when 400 miles from Samoa, a fact which the ca...

The l.i-i, .v, la Void. Grace Baker died about a year ago, leaving nearly $20,000 to her next of kin in England. One of the legatees died before the making of the will, and the question arose, should the estate be divided Into eight parts or nine— should the part bequeathed to the dead legatee be given to the letter's heirs or thrown into the general fund for all the survivors? Judge Coffey has decided that the legacy to the dead legatee is void, and the hitler's heirs had no rights in the premises. The decision made a difference to each of the other legatees of about $350. ■ - ■

I'ACIFIC COAST .WOOLEN-MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890

I'ACIFIC COAST .WOOLEN-MILLS. „ The Woodland Woolen-mills are offered for ileal public auction. The annonnce- ment inspires a Democratic contemporary to refer to the- fact that this is the third California woolen-mill thai, has been forced to suspend since President Harrison was inaugurated. . Tho difficulties which lie iv the way of woolen-mills on this Coast are the sumo that other manufacturing establishments have to contend against. The cost of production is greater in this State than in the East. Fuel is higher, money is higher, labor is higher, and we are only protected against Eastern' manufacturers by the cost '.of transportation. -While in some branches this measure of protection may preserve to us the home market we cannot expect to reach beyond that market. Our contemporary represents the manager of one of our woolen-mills as saying that the cause of the suspension of certain mills is the tariff on grades of line wool. "In the East," he says, "in order to make fine goods ...

Annoyances TO lItAVELEIiS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890

Annoyances TO lItAVELEIiS. *. — The mails' bring us full accounts of the arrest of a California lady in Roms, Italy, J oh a charge of shoplifting. The charge was .° of court,, withdrawn with an apology; but , in the .meantime the lady and a friend had suffered the indignity of an arrest and had ...been taken through the streets by gen- - darmes. This is no isolated case. Every few months. some American traveler is arrested on a charge of stealing, and has to be rescued by the Consul:' In some cases the outrage is probably dictated by a desire to blackmail. Bnt in most cases the shopkeeper who- brings the charge really believes that he has been robbed. He has not wit enough to ' discriminate between an American traveler who could buy him and his whole store and an itinerant European who would just as soon pilfer as not The .laws, too, are harsh to foreigners.

SltOAlt DITTOES. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890

SltOAlt DITTOES. The New York Tribune says that among I the thousands of letters it has received from Western farmers a large proportion ask the virtual abolition of the duties on % ugar. By " Western farmers " the Tribune means the farmers of the valleys drained by the Mississippi River. On the Pacific Coast the farmers want tho duty kept at the present figure. It is fair to presume that the socalled Western farmer does not think he .. can raise sugar beets of a quality that will 0 make the manufactuie of sugar from them profitable. If the sugar-beet Industry seemed as profitable to the Western farmer as to the Pacific Coast farmer the two farmers would stand together In defense of the sugar industry. But as the Western farmer does not at present see any profit for him- ' self in the beet-sugar industry be is pretty near unanimous for a change in the present tariff law that will kill the industry 0 outright. The Wes-tern farmer will excuse us for saying that this is a narrow view t...

WHAT SHALL BE HOME WITH THEM? [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890

WHAT SHALL BE HOME WITH THEM? A number of persons have signed a petition asking Governor Waterman' to name a day tor fasting, humiliation and prayer. The petitioners desire that altthose incarcerated In the city and county 'jails of San Francisco, Oakland and . Alameda be removed to some place of safety not later than the 7th of April. They think also that it would. be a good plan to remove all the gold and silver in the Mint and other national securities on or before the same date. The rea son for these remarkable re- quests is that certain men" and women bave seen or pretend to have seen visions which they construe as a warning that San Francisco, Oaktand and Alameda are to be destroyed by earthquake and tidal waves. Tlio cities of Chicago and Milwaukee are also doomed, but the Governor is not' asked to concern himself to rescue their convicts or to remove their treasure to places, the earthquake and tidal wave cannot roach.

PRESIDENT DIAZ'S MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890

PRESIDENT DIAZ'S MESSAGE. The Mexican Houses of Congress reassembled on Tuesday, and President Diaz sent in a message in his usual conservative style. Diaz is an admirable Executive in one respect; he always avoids irritating topics, and . finds something pleasant and soothing to say. lie is even optimist enough to assure his countrymen . that something very good is going to result from the deliberations of the Pan-American Congress. Americans hope that he will prove a true prophet. There is a possibility that the agreement which the delegates Have reached on the subject of an international coinage may be ratified by their respective Governments. That would be a consummation devoutly to be wished, and if nothing else resulted from the conference, would be worth all that it has cost. But it is due to truth to observe that trie privilege of coining money is an essential attribute of sovereignty, and the Spanish-Americans will so regard it when they are asked to let the United State 3 ...

PKOHIEITION HEKK AND TIIEKE. As was expected, the election of Governor Boies, in lowa has opened the eyes of Republicans in that State to the danger of making prohibition the essential plank in Republican platforms. A conference of representative Republicans was held on Wednesday at Dcs Moines, and a set of resolutions was passed, stating that general prohibition has had a full and faithful trial, and in many portions of the State has lamentably failed. The resolutions go on to say : Experience In this, as well as other State . has conclusively shown that general prohibition, operating upon all cominiiullies alike, without respect to habits, conditions, circumstances or desires, is not adapted either to suppress Intemperauce or promote morality, and, therefore, tbe experiment should be abandoned aud the law so modified that those communities which desire the chance shall have the light to determine for themselves whether Intoxicating liquors shall De sold as a Leverage wiihin their ...

. . MONET AND LOTS. [Newspaper Article] — San Francisco Call — 4 April 1890

. . MONET AND LOTS. The reduction of the rate of Interest by tiie Ilihernia Bank from 7 to 6 per cent shows that there is no active speculation in real estate in this city. If there were any active speculative movement in progress borrowers would not stand on 1 percent to get money, and the bank could place all its funds at 7— it, of course, paying the tax. The fact is that lots in San Francisco, so far from being held at inflated prices, are really cheap in comparison with lots in other cities of equal population, business activity and future promise. This becomes the clearer the closer a map of the city is studied. There is really only one direction in which the residence quarter, and this naturally includes the retail business quarter, including the hotels and theaters, can bo extended. That is due west, between say Townsend street and Pacific Heights. Speaking for the future it will be bounded on the west by the ocean and on the east perhaps Stockton street, and out of its area ...
