Governor Waterman said:
Jfr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlcriicn. Governor
elect Maikham: This to me is a sad day and a
pleasant day. Sad. because I have formed so
many pleasant associations in my political hie
with tne officers and the people of Sacramento;
and pleasant, because I retire from political'
lile—not from the party, but from political life.
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 tbe 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 himself a thorough
Calilomiiu should do all in his power to sus
tain tne reputation that she bas already gained.
I feel that the Sta-.e is going :nto safe "hands,
and I know tbat all feel so. We are going to
have a prosperous year; it cannot be other-1
wise, for we have had plenty of rain, and 11
hope our course will be onward Hiid upward. I
hope tbat at our World's Fair in Chicago we will
show the world what California is.'aud what
she can do. 1 have but a few words to say, aud
I have said thtm. Gentlemen, I thank you.

Members of the Senate antl Assembly— Fellow
Citizens: lou have just witnessed the final act
constituting me Governor of this state, lo the
people that so generously bestowed upon me
this exalted position—the highest in their gift—
I return my grateful thanks, and assure them
that 1 feel the deepest gratitude. While I fully
appreciate the great honor they 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, who
controls the destinies of all people, may grant
me the wisdom, strength and courage to "meet
these responsibilities as they may arise during
the next four years, in such a manner that I
shall jusily merit the approbation of those who
have confided to me this great trust.
I take pleasure at this time In saying that I
am much pleased with the personnel of this
Legislature, and I think that the people should
be congratulated upon the selection they have
made of the gentlemen to represent them. I
believe you have assembled here with honest
intentions and with a determinalion to do your
full duty to the people of tho 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 oue 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 State Government, and I shail
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 not at
tempt to exert undue influence. It is a pleas
ure as well as a duty, however, to tender to you j
and to each of you, at all times during your

to give, and 1 very cordially invite you to in

The last State election brought very promi
nently before the people the question of econ
omy iv the expenditures of puolic moneys. In
presenting my views upon this subject, it is not
my purpose to discuss questions ot politics for
the purpose of criticising either of the greit
political parties of tbe State. But I may be
permitted to say that the Republican party ia
Convention, assembled in this very chamber
on ihe 13th day ol Aunust last, took the initia
tive en this question and placed in its platform
a plank declaring that the State fiuances shoal
be handled with honesty and rigid economy.
As I then and there accepted the conditions im
posed by that Convention, and many time
thereafter promised the people ol the Stat
that, if elected, I would adhere to the pledg
made by my party, I deem it proper at this tim
to state briefly what I consider to be our duty t
the people in this respect.
The appropriations made by the last Legisl
ture imposed a burden upon tbe taxpaye
which was so great lhat, in many instance
people found it exceedingly difficult to procur
means with which to pay their taxes. In r
sponse to the almost unanimous demand of ou
citizens for lower taxation, the Republican Co
vention made a pledge to the people of th
State that the nominees of their pa-ty.
elected, would limit the rate of annual Sta
taxation to 50 cents on each Slo<> of assessab
property. This radical departure from all pre
cedents in Conventions in this state, as cv
denced by their platforms, was fully sustain*
at the polls, and we, who are clothed with of
cial power by the people, and who are the
representatives, are in duty bound to carry o
The great burden of this work neeessaril

For your own convenience and as a preca

gross sum, which const-.tutes a limit of appr

trarily fixed by law. Tbe balance is then ap
portioued according to necessity, or the mer:

It is claimed by organized bodies of labor,
through communications to me. that the eight
hour law on our statute books has been evaded.
If the failure to enforce the law arises from an
inherent defect in the law itself, I trust that you
will remedy tne same.
You will observe lhat the retiring Governor,
iv his biennial message to the Legis. atnreof the
28th session, isyt, "that upwards of SIOO.OOO are
expended In the sippoit of and maintenance of
Commissions and Bureaus: that many of them
have ireen useful, but have outlived "their use

to be deeply regretted that he should retire
HOB office without informing you speciiically
upon this su'ject: that is, without pointing out
the particular Commission or Bureau that
could be dispensed with, thai you might take
steps to ascertain the situation, and if found ex

Hon. John P. Dunn, the retiring Controller,
iv his last report says:
■in making the estimates of expenditures em

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

gating large sums, which, in my judgment, are
useless for any good purpose whatever, and

I>or! of the Controller; but I am compelled to
say that the same would have been much more
uttsfaetory 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 lo know
the facts in all such matters as they exist, and
His to be hoped that you will give this subject
your immediate and earnest attention, to the
cnl that sueh;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 bad no
prejudices either for or against the system, and
would approve any law that would materially
improve the method now in nse in thig State.
Nothing has transpired that has caused me to
change my views, but I suggest that 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
ihis or any other method of conducting elec
tions, whereby the sacredness of tbe bailot-box
would be better preserved.
If. in your judgment, our present system
needs revision, 1 suggest that all the leatures of
our present law which are practical and efl'ec
tice 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 btate, during the past few years, has
been 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 have decreased repre
sentation, while others should be increased. In
view of this lact, the State should be redis
t.icred, iv accordance with Section 6 of Article
1\ . ot the Constitution, which contains the fol
"And the Legislature shall, at its first session
after each census, adjust such districts and re
apportion tbe representation so as to preserve
them as near equal in population as may be."
1 therefore urge that you prepare and enact
the necessary measure, in a spirit of justice
and on a basis of fairness to all sections ol" the
etate, so that each county shall have equal
and exact representation iv the Legislature, in
the proportion that its population bears to that
of the whole State.
All political parties in this State agree upon
the propriety of the exclusion of the Chinese,
aud are anxious that the law forbiddin? their
importation shall be strictly enforced. The law
is being constantly violated, and the influx of
these people is very great. Congress should be
requested to take steps to enforce the law as it
stands, to remedy the present law wherever it
may be found defective, and to extend the date
as far beyond 1592 as possible. Provision should
be made for guarding the borders.Jnow 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 that there are now 130
in the various institutions, who are cared lor at
an annual cost of SIB.OOO, and are occupying

IRMGaTION AND FORESTRY.
Tt was uot my intention to make any sugges
tion upon the subject of irrigation, as the re-
P Jits 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
future prosperity of the State is inseparably
bound up in the assured continuance of an
abundant, unstinted supply of water for irrigat
ing purposes; and that th* never-failing charac
ter of the streams and watercourses is grestly
dependent upon maintaining ami preserving
the timber which shades und 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." This 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, the law as it
stands is capable of abuses, which, as stated
menace the future prosperity of the Stute, it be
One important branch of our industries, that
of hydraulic mining, is at a stanostill, and will
never be revived, unless vigorous steps be taken
by the General Government.
Congress and the Courts have placed the
strong and powerful arm of the law upon this

not repeat its history, for it ls familiar to all of
yon, and to the people of the State. Xo relief
could be expected irom the General Govern
ment, were tne workings of these mines benefi
cial to the interests of this State aIon». It was
from the gold fields of California, however that
the millions were taken that assisted this nation
so materially in her greatest financial t-eiil
These same gold fields have yielded tne enor
mous amount of nearly a billion and a half of
the precious metal, thereby replenishing the
treasury of the United States with that needed
medium of exchange. It is said that 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 of certain streams
If that be true, it should be avoided. Bui I
have such confidence in the combined wisdom
of tbe 6C,000,00j of people in this country, tnat I
feel safe in saying that if an earnest effort were
made on the part of the General Government
lor that purpose, the result would be accompa
nied with profit to the whole country.
in my judgment no industtv 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 and Representatives urged to take
all necessary steps to bring the matter properly
before Congress at tbe earliest moment possible.
Longress properly expends thousands of dollars
every year in experiments and investigations
which iv the opiulon ol its members, will pro
mote the public interests of the country. For
instauce, a special committee has been created
on irrigation of arid lands, and a liberal appro
priation is anuua..y made lor the purpose of
studying the subject. The must 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 should not Congress
treat this question in a similar manner, and as
sist in a solution of the difficulties surrounding
the production 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 leas
ible method of release, and I urge you to take

I The Philadelphia Democracy Addressed
by Ex-President Cleveland,
PHiLAr'ELi-HiA, January Bth.—Jackson Day
waaoelebnted to-night by tbe Democratic Aa
! scciation with a banquet at the Academy, at
! which many prominent persons were present.
I Ex-President Cleveland was the orator of the
I evening. Speaking in response to the toast:
"Principles of true bemocracy," he eulogized
the Demo.rncy aud its creed, and said that par
-7 ties have come and parties have gone, but there
never has been a time irom JefVerton's day to
the present when the Democratic party did not
exist, active, agxreofve and pr pared for a
heroic col ilict. Xot all who have followed the
banner bave been able to demonstrate, as an
abstraction, why Democratic principles are
best suited to their wants and tbe country's
I g-.od. but they have known and felt that as
( their Government was established for the peo
. pie, the principles and men nearest to the peo
ple and standing lor them, could be safest
trusted. Jackson has been in their eves an in
carnation of the things which Jefferson de
The Democratic party, by in!e'.l:geut study of
the present conditions, must be prepared to
meet all the wants of the people as they arise,
and furnish a remedy for every threatening
evil, one condition we should congratulate
ourselves upsn that our party creed is broad
enough to meet any emergency that can arise
In the life of a free nation. I hus, when we see
the functions of government used to favor the
few at the expense of the many, an unjust tar
iff which banishes from many humble homes
the comforts of life, in order that the places ol
wealth and luxury may abound, we turn
to our creed and find it enjoins equal and ex
act justice to all men. Jhen if we are well
grounded in our political faith we will not be
deceived, nor 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
States in adopting a plan to protect her people's
suffrage, and added that in any event the Dem
ocrats of the State can find no just justification
in party principle now. nor in party traditions,
nor iv a just appreciation of Democratic duty,
for the failure to earnestly support and advo
cate the baliot-reform principles of trie Democ
cracy. Nowhere, said Mr. Cleveland me in
clusion, has the sensitiveness of the question
Involving rieht and wrong been better illus
trated than in Pennsylvania.
President Thompson of the Association said
in introducing Mr. Cleveland, that he was the
man who, with great courage, threw down the
gauntlet of tariff reform, and like his great pro
totype, Jackson, practically declared, by the
Eternal, that its principle was right and should

judicial view of that amendment.

Courier, a challenge to fight a duel. Gonzales
refused to notice him unless a written challenge i
was sent. No further action has yet been taken.
This afternoon Gonzales published a state- j
ment scoring Tillman. Tillman's friends say '
the trouble was caused by au article Gonzales
printed about Tillman being blackballed in a i
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.
