THE KANE INVESTIGATION.
Speech of the Hon. Grove L. Johnson, in
the Senate of California, Friday Evening-.
April 9, 1880., '
The question being on a resolution offered by Sen
ator Enos, to suspend Senator Kane for the re
mainder of the session, Mr. Johnson said :
. Mr. President, ' I regret that 1 am not well
enough to speak upon this matter as I would like. I
regret that I am compelled to speak at all, but I do
not propose to sit still and permit the Senator from
the Tenth (Mr. Dickinson) to be the only Senator on
this floor to raise his voice in favor of equal and
exact justice. In listening to the speeches of the
Senator from Plumas (Mr. Cheney), and from the
Thirteenth (Mr. Ei os), and the Senator from Marin
(Mr. Sears), I had almost thought, sir, that this
Senate nad been turned into an amphitheater in
which to utter fulsome eulogies of Ireland and the
. Irish people.
"• I, sir, live in America ; lam an American citizen ;
1 drank deeo .if the pure waters of American law,
and follow American customs, believing them to be
better than any other. This, sir, is a question that
interests legislation. It is a questkn notmerely be
tween Thomas Kane and this Senate, but between
all legislation that may be attempted at this session,
or that may be attempted at any subsequent session
of the California Legislature. ' If this Senate says
by its coward:.- -in this matter ; if it says by its vote
in this matter that a Senator may be permitted to
cast wholesale reflections upon any bill, or upon any
measure— if ibis Senate says by its vote to-night
that a Senator may be permitted to defeat such leg
islation -as he thinks is wrong by such means as were
adopted by Senator Kane, then, sir, the end of law,
the end of discus- ion, the end of wise legislation
has been reached in California, and it will only need
for a Senator to rise in his place and say "some
. friend offered to bribe me," and the bill fails, md
tbe Boost .r receives the plaudits of an admiring
■ public, and is complimented on his devotedness to
' the customs of tbe old world.
I recognize DO such law ; I believe in no such cus
tom. 1 believe a man roust be judged by hi* acts —
not by his words. The defense is made upon the
right hand, by two Senators who hive spoken, that
Senator Kane is a fool or next to it ; tbe defense is
made upon the left hand that Senator Kane deserves
well of the State because he has " put up a job,"
and because he was smart enough to inveigle a
lobbyist into circumstances such that he might be
able to expose him. Upon which side of the ques
tion will the friends of this substitute place them
selves? There is this proposition very plainly stated
—either Senator Kane lied, or he has been bribed
If Senator Kane lied be ought to be expelled ; if
- Senator Kane was bribed be ought to be expelled.
This question has that appearance and none other.
There can be no other legitimate deduction
from his speech and from his testimony
than ; tbat. , The Senator . from the Thir
teenth (Mr. Enos) alludes ' to the fact that
■ Senator Kane took the oath of office here with up
' lifted hand. He did. We all did it ; yet Senator
Kane comes before this Senate with that oath fresh
• upon his conscience— with tbat oath recorded by the
Go 1 that rules the world —and asks this Senate to
excuse him from fulfilling that oath because he does
not like to violate his word. Are we prepared to
say by our votes that we regard a man's word more
than we regard I man's oath ? Gentlemen, if we
support the resolution of Senator linos, backed by
the defense made for Senator Kane, we do say so by
our votes ; for the only defense made for senator
Kane being that he does not wish to break his word,
but is willing to break his oath. Is that the custom
of the c.untry that the Senator praises? Is that
the custom we wish to see established in '.is land —
that a man's word is better than his oath ? Ido not
believe in such sophistry ; I will not bow the knee
to any such Bad as that. 1, fur one, sir, regard this
not as a case of sympathy. lam not one of those to
be led aside from the path which I deem to be right
and just by any florid or rhetorical appeals to mv
sympathetic fee-ling, especially when I can look back
in the past and see that this is the third time that
Senator Kane has upon this floor ma these same
insinuations, and given utterance to this same kind
Twice the Senate passed it over, and the news
papers of the State (I beg pardon for mentioning
them), abused this Senate, aud some of them— one
in particular, said the Senate was afraid to invest i
irate this matter. Now, far the third time, Senator
Kane makes these charges upon the floor, they are
investigated, and we are asked, in the name of sym
pathy, to pass them idly by, because Senator hane
reverences some Old World superstition. Sir, allu
sion has been made to hu&bands and wives refusing
to testify; allusion has been made to fathers ie
fusing to testily. My reading of Roman history
teaches me that there was a father in Rome who
killed his son because he did wrong. My reading of
Irish history tells me that a father there bung a
son who was guilty of a crime. Which precedent
■ will you follow 1 They are both before you. Ido
■ot blame Senator Kane so much in this mat
ter as I do the unolean ingrowth of this
j unlicensed abuse of public men and public
measures that is becoming almost a disease in Cali
fornia.'- Men without warrant, men without . learn
ing, have abused people ; newspapers destitute of
principle and character, as some are in this State,
have abused public men and public measures, and
it was uot to be wondered at that a Senator who
had filled himself at such a fountain should have
been guilty of such remarks as Senator Kane has
been guilty of. But ignorance i f the law excuses
no man, and a man should 1 c judged by his acts,
and his acts should be judged by their consequences.
1 submit to this Senate— 1 submit to the people of
California, if it is right, if it is proper, to leave it in
the power of one Senator to defeat, or attempt to
defeat, any measure, by being permitted to use such
expressions as were used by the Senator from tbo
"Elevtnth District (Senator Kane).
Charity, sir, or sympathy which is it? To be
eharita le is the duty of all mankind ; but have we
no charity for ourselves? Have we no charity for
tbe law? Have we no desire to protect ourselves,
our people and our legislation ? If we have we will
do what I will do — vote f r the resolution intro
duced by the Senator from the Tenth (Mr. Dickin
son), which is, in my judgment, the only manner in
which we can protect ourselves, protect our legisla
tion and protect the State. lam not here as au en
emy of Senator Kane ; I am not here flaunting mv

pathies or charities. lam hers to do that which 1
think is right ; to do that which I think the law and

Kane did not give a man away " ? Shall we send him

selves. We must protect our dignity and our rights.
We must have sympathy for ourselves. We must

like Coriolanus of Rome to boast of the wounds he
received, but branded— branded because he has dis

SESATOE JOHXSOS'S REMARKS SATURDAY
KVEXING, APRIL 10, 1880, OS RESOLUTION
RELEASING KANE FROM COUNTY JAIL AND
Mr. Johnson- Mr. President, I do not arise to
a question of privilege. I have not read the article
in ihe newspaper of which the Senator made men
tion. 1 arise, however, to offer a resolution in ref
erence to this matter, and I respectfully ask the
indulgence of the Senate while I preface the resolu
tion with a few remarks. Last evening, sir, I voted
in tavor of punishing Senator Kane, believing that
be deserved punishment; believing that be deserved
punishment of the highest kind. Last evening, sir,
I voted to expel him, believing he deserved to be
expelled Last evenin.', I voted to imprison him in
the County Jail, believing that he ought so to be
imprisoned. I then voted without sympathy ; I
then discussed the matter without sympathy, I then
asked no sympathy for him, but for justice. 1 th<n
asked to protect the dignity and the honor of this
Senate, and its individual members. But, sir, in
my judgment, the honor of this Senate hai) been
sufficiently protected, and the dignity of this
Senate has been sufficiently maintained. For the
first time in the history of California a Senator
has been imprisoned in the County Jail by order of
the -enate. But, sir, the Senator was in contempt
of the Senate, and it could punish him by higher
kinds of punishment, or it could show its power by
simple imprisonment. Our power has been shown
by ihe Senate in reaching forth its arms of iron and
seizing one of its own members— one of its equals—
and pacing him in the County Jail. Sir, I think we
have done that which justice, that which law, de
mauds. To-night lam ready to answer the call of
sympathy, aid without consultation, save with my
colleague— and right here let me say that during
the session of this Senate I hive always consulted
my colleague before acting upon measures —
desire to present a resolution for the release
from imprisonment of Senator Thomas Kane.
1 do it, sir, not by reason of any article in the news
papers, for I have not read them, not because I have
changed my views as to the gravity or extent of the
offense, or "the necessity for or severity of the punish
ment deserved by Senator Kane, but because 1 now
recognize the pardoning power. I now recognize a
claim for mercy and sympathy which last night I
felt it my duty to resist and repel from my bosom.
To-nUht I find tbat we stand ill the same position
as that occupied by the Governor of the Stale, when
a felon has been confined in the State's prison, and
an application is made to him to pardon that felon.
We should exercise the pardoning power for
charity's sake and for our on sake. lam informed,
by those who claim to know, that Senator Kane has
not manifested any anger at the Senate at the posi
tion it wis forced to assume. That he has, so far
from entailing any lawsuit or pr cecdings upon us,
so far from filling the air or the papers with re
proaches or maleuictions, quietly, and I may add,
manfully, submitted to what has followed his actions,
and as a men should who recognizes the fact that be
is accepting the punishment of his crime, and is
willing to bear that punishment, realizing that it
was not inflicted in malice or in haste. Sir, under
circumstances such as these I believe we would be
acting as honest men and wise legislators to extend
the pardoning hand, and, metaphorically speaking,
strike the shackles that bind the body of Thomas
Kane in the County Jail of Sacramento. Therefore,
sir, I have prepared a resolution looking to that
end. I think, after examining the matter, that it Is
right, and I shall vote for it. I have carefully and
candidly considered the sentence and the charge,
and I ask Senators non', to do that which in their
and my opinion we could not do last night —
to the cry for sympathy and the appeal for mercy;
to give weight to the tears and sorrow of bis sick
wi.e and the appeals of his children. I ask you now
to extend mercy to the culprit. I ask you now to ex
tend to the one sentenced to punishment- and to
just punishment- -that mercy which could not be
given last night. I ask you vow to unite with me in
throwing open the prison doors, and permitting Thos.
Kane once more to walk as a free man in the land.
I believe that he has been punished sufficiently for
his sins. 1 believe tbat this has taught him a lesson,
which will ever be engrafted on his heart. I believe
that the people of this State have been taught a
lesson. I believe that the body of men who fill the
lobbies and interest themselves in legislation have
been taught a lesson. I believe we have maintained
our honor and dignity, and now I ask you that we
prove our manhood by extending sympathy and
pardon and mercy to the offender. [Resolution in
Mr. Burt — Has Senator Kane decided to divulge
the name of the man who tried to bribe him?
Mr. Johnson — Mr. President, I desire to say that I
have had no communication, directly or indirectly,
with Senator Kane. I have not seen him or spoken
to him, nor to any one representing him, nor have I
written to him or to any one for him. nor received
any word from him, or any one representing him, at
all. I know not his views.
[These remarks were made after Mr. Dickinson had
offered an amendment, and Messrs. Dickinson, Tray
lor, Sears and Zuck had spoken.]
Mr. Johnson l was well aware, sir, when I intro
duced this resolution, that my action might be criti
cised. I accept that responsibility, and I propose to
abide by the resolution. I have nothing to retract
of what I said last night. I thought then that Sen
ator Kane was guilty. I thought then that Senator
Kane ought to be punished. 1 have not changed my
views since last night upon that subject. 1 argued
as strongly then as I do now that he should be pun
ished ; that he should be punished in the severest
manner known to law. This Senate by a majority
vote decided otherwise. It was staled and cited last
night that the only method of handling the matter
was to adopt a resolution imprisoning Senator Kane.
still I did not at that time agicc with that punish
ment, not thinking it severe enough, but I voted for
it rather than have no punishment inflicted upon
the Senator. lam not sorry for my action, my vote
or my word. I have nothing to apologize for. lam
exceedingly sorry that language of that kind has
been used this evening. The question before us to
night, it seems to me, is not whether Senator Kane
was or was not guilty of the crime— whether he was
guilty or was not guilty of contempt of the Sen.
We have settled that matter ; we have decided those
propositions, each and all, adversely to Senator Kane.
We have said by our votes that he was guilty of
contempt of this Senate. We have s lid by our
votes that he should be punished. We have in
flicted upon him some punishment. The question
now before us, as Ifiook at it, is. Has that punish
ment gone far enough? Have we sufficiently pun
ished Senator Kane to vindicate ourselves, and to
teach bim that he has made a mistake lam well
aware, sir, that every parent has a moral and a legal
right to punish his children, but I never knew of a
parent that refused to stop punishing his chill
when he thought the punishment had gone far
enough. It is good, Mr. President, to have a giant's
strength, but it is wrong to use lhat strength like a
giant. This Senate has that giant strength. This
Senate has used that strength in vindicating itself,
and in punishing one of its members. Theqies
ti hi for us to decide now, is, Have we used sufficient
of that strength to warn others against Infringing on
our privileges or committing a contempt of our au
thority ? lf in the punishment that we have meted
out to senator Kane we have sufficiently
complied with the law ; if by that pun
ishment we have erected a yvarning
post sufficient to give understanding to all
in the future that they must not in any manner
offend against our privileges or offer any insult to
the representatives of the state, have we not done
enough This is not a reopening of the case ; it is
not a technicality, nor, in the language of the Sen
a or from Alameda, is it an application for a new
trial, li is simply an application to this Senate for
pardon to a criminal. It is claimed by the oppo- j
nents of tbis resolution that Senator Kane can
purge himself from his contempt by divulging the
name of the party. 1 have naught to say in refer
ence to that save that it is true, and that he should
divulge the name of the party seeking to bribe him.
But ..ranting all that.it yet remains that Senator
Kane has sinned and has suffered punishment, as
be should, and bears that deserved punishment as a
man should. Dug t we not, then, to be w.l ing to
make the first advances towards closing this un
happy and unpleasant gap in his life and his connec
tion with this Senate? Blessed is lie who forgives
w ten asked ; blessed is he who accepts advances
made in charity and peace, but thrice blessed is he
who, believing himself iv the right, extends the
hand of charity and friendship to him who has done
wrong. I believe this Senate has done right. I
be.ieve that this Senate ought to have inflicted a
severer puni-hmeut upon senator Kane. But hav
ing inflicted the punishment that a majority of the
Senate deemed proper, and he having, 1 think, been
sufficiently punished, all we need at this time to do
is, I think, to say to Senator Kane, we will forget
this, Senator Kane. We will let you go from the
prison house. The resoluton introduced by the
gentleman from the Tenth, Mr. Dicki son, and af
terwards withdrawn, and then again offered hy my
colleague, will perhaps meet the views of a majority
of this Senate. I have no desire to influence any
Senator's vote upon that proposition. As I stated
at the outset, I introduced this resolution without
consul' ing any Senator save my colleague. I intro
duced it without haviug read any of the newspa|>er
comments upon our action of last night. I intro
duced it without c nsulting with S.uator Thomas
Kane, d: recti v or indirectly. I introduced it believ
ing now just as strongly as I stated last night, that
Senator Kane was guilty and should be punis*<e.l.
But 1 thought it was wise for us to show that we
could forgive as well as punish. I introduced the
resolution for that purpose. I trust that the reso
lution will be adopted. I trust that will end the
matter. lam exceedingly sorry that some Senators
have called question and time, not, however, during
my remarks, and have intimated that we ought not
to discuss this matter again, for I regard it as a very
important epoch in the history of our State. I ap
prehend that there is not a Senator here upon this
floor that would change places with Senator Kane
for all the gold locked up in the State Treasury.
Has not the punishment been . - suffi ieut ?
Last night. In the heat of excitement of the debate I
did no thmk that imprisonment iv the County Jail
was sufficient punishment. To-day, while thinking
the matter over, it seemed to me such punishment
was sufficient. I would not have received it for
worlds. I had rather die first. Rather would I
have promptly left the Senate by my resignation
than to have received the pjnishment inflicted upen
Senator Kane. And I wish again to be understood
that I believed last night, and believe now,
that be deserved the punishment, but I thuiK
s> have puui-hed him sufficiently. I do not
desire to appeal to your sympathies f r Sen
ator Kane. ■-. 1 do not desire io say I anything
out of keeping with the argument advanced upon
that proposition— but I ask the Senate, carefully, to
say upon this proposition whether or not it is best
fur the , Senate to be charitable in this matter, not
because the culprit is Senator Kane or because he
is not, nor because of his intelligence or foolishness,
nor because we have exercised our power, oi r be
cause we have punished the offender, but because it
is always wise to listen to the voice of charity after
having satisfied the demands of justice. and the
claims of law. I am informed by a Senator upon
this II >or that it is the intention of Senator Kane
not to return again to this Senate this ses-i-m. no
matter what our votes to-night may be. Therefore,
while I m willing to accept tbe amendment offer, d
by my colleague, which is . the same as th. otfeied
b rentier Dickinson, it would be accepted only as
a . orupmniise. Ido not desire to tae cup the time
of this Senate, but will accept ■ the ani->ii'l>< ent
offered hr my collogue, and hope the resolution as
amended will be adopted. ' '• l lSftitßßßJpWfl l ||[lMff
