The Pre-ident pro tern. of the Senate and

The cortege oi the Governor-elect entered the

many pleasant associations in my political lite

I will be a worker in the Republican party. 1
hope much from the coming administration.
Our State is growing so it is the grandest State
in the Union, and ever will be, if steered aright.
We all like to speak of our State.
of our glorious California, and what we can do,
and our productions; aud one and all of us
should endeavor to sustain her reputation.
Every man who considers himsell a thorough
Calilorniau should do all in his power to sus
tain tne reputation that she has already gamed.
I feel that the State is going :nto safe hands,
and I know lhat all feel so. We are going to
have a prosperous year; it cannot be other
wise, for we have had plenty of rain, aud I
hope our course will be onward aud upward. 1
hope that at our World's Fairiu Chicago we will
show tbe world what California is, and what
she can do. I have but a few words to say, aud
I have said tbem. Gentlemen, 1 thank you.
THE NEW GOVERNOR.
The Chairman of the Joint Committee then

Mtiidiers of tlie Senate and Assembly— Fellow-
Citizens: You have just witnessed the final act
constituting me Governor of this State. To the
people that so generously bestowed upon me
this exalted position—the nighest in their gift—
I return my grateful thanks, aud assure them
that I feel tbe deepest gratitude. While I lully
apprec:ate the great bunor tbey have conferred
upon me, I am also mindful of the grave and
serious responsibilities that accompany that
It shall be my earnest prayer that He. wbo
controls the destinies of all people, may grant
me the wisdom, strength and courage to "meet
these responsibilities as tbey may arise during
the next four years, iv such a manner that I
shall justly merit the approbation of those who
have confided to me ibis great trust.
I take pleasure at this time In saying that I
am much pleased with tbe personnel of this
Legislature, aud I think that the people should
be congratulated upon tbe selection they bave
made of tbe gentlemen to represent them. I
believe you have assembled here with honest
intentions and with a determination to do your
full duty to the people of the whole State. I
trust that you will make for yourselves a repu
tation that shall equal, if not surpass in excel
lence, the record of any preceding Legislature,
and one that future Legislatures may wisely
emulate. It is my earnest desire to work in en
tire harmony with you, and to be able to ap
prove every item of your legislative work.
In your hands as members, of this Legisla
ture, rests the entire responsibility for your
branch of the Slate Government, and I shall
leave it there, assured that the people of the
State will grant to you just and full credit for
all your official acts, over which I shall noi at
tempt to exert undue influence. It is a pleas
ure as well as a duty, however, to tender to you
and to each of you, at all times during your
deliberations, such assistance as is in my power
to give, and 1 very cordially iuvite you to in
form me of any fact, which in your judgment
the Executive should know, or that will benefit
you in your official capacity, or the interests
It would be more in accord with my ideas to
close my address at tbis point aad send to your
honorable bodies, from time to time, recom
mendations on the various subjects which will
occupy your attention, but yielding to the force
jf precedent, I will now communicate to you
my views upon some ol the more impo.'tsnt
The last State election brought very promi
aently berore tbe people the question of econ
omy in the expenditures of puulic money*. In
presenting my views upon this subject, it is not
coy purpose to discuss questions ol politics for
the purpose of criticising either of the great
political parties of tbe State. But I may be
permitted to say that the Republican party in
Convention, assembled in tbis very chamber,
on the 13th day oi August last, took the initia
tive on this question and placed in its platform
a. plank declaring that tbe State nuances should
be handled with honesty and rigid economy.
As I then and there accepted the conditions im
posed by that Convention, and many times
thereafter promised the people of the State
that, if elected, I would adhere to the pledge
made by my party, I deem it proper at this, time
to state briefly what 1 consider to be our duty to
the people in this respect
Tbe appropriations made by the last Legisla
ture imposed a burden upon tbe taxpayers
which was so great that, in many instances
people fcund it exceedingly difficult to procure
means with which to pay their taxes. In re
sponse t> the almost unanimous demand of our
citizen *or lower taxation, the Republicau Con
ventioiil made a pledge to the people of the
State lat the nominees of their patty, if
electet.j would limit the rate of annual State
taxati.«t to 50 cents on each $100 of assessable
proper*. This radical departure from all pre
cedent Jin Conventions iv this State, as evi
dencetfby their platforms, was fuliv sustained
at the iolls, and we, who are clothed with offi
cial Tfwcr by the people, and who are their
represjhtalives, are in duty bound to carry out
The great burden of this work MCemxfly
rests vlth you, and I sincerely trust that you
will sctguard the finances of the State, and so
equitaliy distrioute the approp iations for all
purpot-s, that the limit prescribed shall not be
exc?Sf\ d- If tnis P'edge is honorably and
laithf Sly adhered to, you will receive the com
mend felons of a grateful people, irrespective oi
For four own convenience and as a precau
tion Fjainst errors, I would suggest tbe adop
tion oJ a similar method to that adopted by our
National legislators. While it does uot appear
of retard, yet as a matter of fact, the leaders of
the p*ty in power in Congress agree upon a
gross turn, which constitutes a limit of appro
priation, that Congress does not e-xc cd. Then
the ajount is ascertained which is necessary to
meet be fixed charges-that is, amounts arbi
trarily fixed by law. The balance is then ap
porti.aird according to necessity, or the merits
of the subject under consideration. For in
"■ffil' 'he-v "B™* upon so many millions for
publi bcildings. so many millions for rivers/
and Ifcrbors. so many millions for tensions, and \
Jposland these various limits are rigidiy ea
-shi method, as you can readily p=rceive
givef«o those who are responsible for ih» acts
of th* party in power a perfect understanding
of wiat expenditures auy particular Congress
will je permitted to make.
• Yc*.have been spared the labor of determin
ing this limit, for the Republican party, as I
have said, fixed a limit of fifty cents, ani the
Democratic party one of forty-five cents on tbe
one hundred dollars of assessable property
thereby removing all responsibility in that re
gard on the part of any of your memb—s
Beating in mind this limit. 1 adv's"" you at

It is claimed by organized bodies of labor,

If the failure to enforce the law arises from an
inherent defect in the law itself, I trust teat you

You will obsorve lhat the retiring Governor.
in his biennial message to the Legisatureof the

Hon. John P. Dunn, the retiring Controller,
iv his last report says:
••in masing the estimatesof expenditures em
bodied in tbis report. I have lollowed the man
dates ot the law as it exists, but in doing so. I
do not desire to be regarded as acquiescing
either in the wisdom or necessity oi many of
the laws. Instead, there are expenses, aggre
gating large sums, which, in my judgment, are
for any good purpose whatever, and
wnich ought not to exist as an expense to the
I bave read with much interest the able re
port ot the Controller; but I am compelled to
say that the same would have been much more
satisfactory to me. and I doubt not to you, had
he given us in detail the particular laws and
items of expense which he deemed vicious and
useless. The taxpayers have a right to know
the facts iv all such matters as they exist, and
it is to be hoped that you will give this subject
your immediate and earnest attention, to the
end that such;abuses may be corrected.
During the last campaign I received many
communications asking for an expression of
my views on the Australian ballot system,
which I answered by saying that I had no
prejudices either for or again. t tbe system, aud
would approve any law that would "materially
improve the method now iv nse in this State.
NothiDg has transpired that has caused me to
change my views, but I suegest tbat ycu make
a thorough examination ot the practical work
ings of the Australian system before determin
ing to adopt it instead of our own. Every hon
est voter would hail with joy the adoption of
this or any other method of conducting elec
tions, whereby the sacredness of the bailot-box
would be better preserved.
If. in your judgment, our present system
needs levision, I suggest lhat all the features of
our present law which are practical and effec
tive be retained, and those features of the Aus
tralian or other system, which may be consid
ered beneficial, be added thereto or incorpor
The increase in population in many sections
of the state, during the past few years, has
beeu so great that the present apportionment,
constituting the Senatorial and Assembly Dis
tricts, does not give representation in propor
tion to population.
Under the Constitution, the number of Rep
resentatives cannot be increased, and certain
localities will necessarily nave decreased repre
sentation, while others should be increased. In
view of this iact, the State should be redis
t.icred, in accoraance with Section 6 of Article
IV. ot the Constitution, which contains tbe fol
"And tbe Legislature shall, at its fir.-t session
after each census, adjust such districts and re
apportion the representation so as to preserve
them us near equal in population as may be."
i therefore urge that you prepare and enact
the necessary measure, in a spirit of justice
and on a basis of fairness to all sections of the
state, so that each county shall have equal
and exact representation iv the Legislature, in
the proportion that its population bears to tbat
of the whole State.
All political parties iv this State agree upon
the propriety of the exclusion of the Chinese,
aud sre anxious that the law forbidding their
importaiiou shall be strictly enforced. The law
is being constantly violated, aud the influx of
these people is very great. Congress should be
requested to take steps to euforce the law as it
stands, to remedy the present law wherever it
may be found defective, and to extend the date
as lar beyond 1892 as possible. Provision should
be made for guarding the borders.Jnovv almost
I also recommend that you request Congress
to provide means whereby the insane among
the Chinese can be returned to their own coun
try. You will observe by the reports of the
Stockton Insane Asylum tbat there are now 130
in ths various institutions, who are cared lor at
an annual cost of 118,000, and are oceupving
room required for the comfort of our own "citi
IRRIGATION AND FORESTRY.
It wes uot my intention to make any sugges
tion upon the subject of irrigation, as tbe re
ports of the practical working of the Wright
bill appear to be favorable and enc.uragiug.
I am. however, in receipt of an official com
munication from the State board of Forestry, to
which briefly I desire to call your attention. I
think each of you will agree with me that the
futuie prosperity of the State is inseparably
bound up iv the assured continuance of an
abundant, unstinted supply of water for irrigat
ing purposes; and that the never-failing charac
ter of the streams and watercourses is greatly
dependent upon maintaining and preserving
the timber which shades and protects the
sources from which the supply is derived.
The Board say, however, in this communica
tion, that there is imminent danger to this pre
servation, and that the abuse of the law, as it
now stands, "is at all times a menace to the in
dustries dependent upon irrigation." Tbis offi
cial statement is entitled to seriou3 considera
tion, on account of the magnitude of the evils
which would follow the destruction ot the tim
ber, and the consequent diminution of the sup
ply of water for irrigation. I therefore recom
mend that if, upon investigation, tbe law as it
stands is capable of abuses, which, as stated,
menace tbe future prosperity of the State, it be
One important branch of our industries, that
of hydraulic mining, is at a stanostill, aud will
never be revived, unless vigorous step= be taken
by the General Government.
Congress and the Courts have placed tbe
stroug and powerful arm of the law upon this
industry, and crushed it outot existence. I need
not repeat its history, (or it is familiar to all of
you, and to the people of the State. No relief
could be expected irom the General Govern
ment, were tne woikiugs of these mines benefi

Irom the gold fields of California, howeve- that
the millions were taken tbat assisted this nation
so materially in ber greatest financial peiil
These same gold fields have yielded tbe enor
mous amount of uearly a billion and a half of
tne precious metal, thereby replenishing the
treasury of the United States with that needed
medium of exchange. It is said thai it will be
difficult, if not Impossible, to devise means
whereby the gold can be extracted in
paying quantities without harm to
the farm-owners in the valleys or injury
to the navigation or certain streams
If th:it be true, it should be avoided. But I
bave such confidence in the combined wisdom
of the 66,Q00,0uj of people in this country, that I
feel safe in saying that if an earnest effort were
made on the part of the General Government
for that purpose, the result would be accompa
nied with profit to the whole country.
ln my judgment no industiy would more
richly repay a reasonable outlay on the part of
the Government than this.
I suggest, thereiore, that the subject be thor
oughly agitated, Congress memorialized, and
our Senators aud Representatives urged to take
all necessary steps to bring tbe matter properly
before Congress at tbe earliest moment possible,
congress properly expends thousands oi dollars
every year iv experiments and investigations
which iv the opiuion ol its members, will pro
mote the public interests of the country. For
instance, a special committee has been created
on irrigation of arid lauds, and a liberal appro
priation is annual.y made for the purpose of
studying the subject. The most thoroughly
qualified men of the age are employed for this
work, and ail the means that science and skill
can evolve are brought into requisition in solv
ing the problems. Many other instances, famil
iar to all, of the liberal actioD of the Govern
ment could be cited. Why 6hould not Congress
treat this question in a similar manner, and as
sist in a solution of the difficulties surrounding
tbe protraction of gold I It is a matter of na
tional interest, for this metal is accepted by all
men as a medium of exchange. Within the
borders of California millions upon millions of
gold are locked up in the bowels of the earth,
awaiting the genius of man to devise some teas
ible method of release, and I urge you to take
the initiative in obtaining the assistance of the

ADJOURNMEHT OF THE CONVENTION.
The journal of the Joint Convention was then
read and approved, and the Convention ad
journed sine die. •
The Assembly convened immediately after
the uJjomwaviit of ihe Joint convention, aad

I until to-morrow, with the understanding that
I it wonld tnen adjourn until Monday, the 12th,
j at 12 o'clock, the former resolution on the sub

I The Philadelphia Democracy Addressed
by Ex-President Cleveland,
Philadelphia, January Bth.—Jackson Day
j was celebrated to-night by the Democratic As
sociation with a banquet at the Academy, at
which many prominent persons were present.
Ex-President Cleveland was the orator of tbe
evening. Speaking in response to the toast:
"Principles of true bemocraey." he eulogized
the Democracy and its eieci, and said that par
ties have come and parties have gone, but there
never has been a time irom Jefi'erton's day to
the present when the Democratic party did not
exist, active, aggressive and pr pared for a
heroic coLilict. Not all wbo have followed the
banner have been able to demonstrate, as au
abstraction, why Democratic principles are
best suited to their wants aud tbe country's
. g'.od. but they bave known and felt that as
! their fiovc-rnmeut was established for the peo
• pie, the principles and men nearest to the peo
ple and standing ior them, could be safest
I trusted. Jackson has been in their eyes an in
carnation of tbe things which Jefferson de
The Democratic party, by inte'.l:gent study of
the present conditions, must be prepared to
meet all the wants of tb^ people as they arise,
and furnish a remedy for every threatening
evil, one condition we sbouM congratulate
ourselves upon that our party creed is broad
enough to meet any emergency that can arise
in the life of a free nation. Thus, when we see
the iuni'tions oi government used to favor the
few at the expense of the many, an uDJust tar
iff which banishes from many humble homes
the comforts of life, in order that the places of
wealth and luxury may abound, we turn
to our creed and find it ecjoius equal and ex
act justice to all men. 'then if we are well
grounded in our political faith we will not be
deceived, uor permit others to be deceived, by
a plausible pretext or smooth sophistry."
Mr. Cleveland expressed the hope that Penn
sylvania will not long remain behind her sister
-tates in adopting a plan 10 protect her people's
suffrage, and added that in any event the Dem
ocrats of tbe State can find no'just justification
in party principle now, nor in party traditions,
nor in a just appreciation of Democratic duty,
for tbe failure to earnestly support and advo
cate the baliot-reform principles of true Democ
cracv. Nowhere, said Mr. Cleveland in con
clusion, has the secsitiveness of the question
involving right ami wrong been better illus
trated than in Pennsylvania.
President Thompson of tha Association said
in introduein* Mr. Cleveland, that he was the
man wbo, with great courage threw down the
gauntlet of tai!B reform, and like his great pro
totype, Jacksou, practically declared, by the
Eternal, that its principle was right and snould

refused to notice him unless a written challenge
was sent. Xo further action has yet been taken.
This alternoon Gonzales published a state
ment scoring Tillman. Tillman's friends say
the trouble was caused by an article Gonzales
printed about Tillman being blackballed in a
club, but it is said elsewhere that the real cause
is the severe remarks about Tillman and his
nephew in a report of a political meeting.
