S&nator Carpenter of Los Angeles arose
to a question of privilege yesterday after
noon, and caused to be read a report in
the Bee concerning the discussion of the
Pomona County division bill in commit
tee on Monday evening. He denied that
he had, either directly or by inuendo,
charged that any member of the Legis
lature had been or would allow himself to
be influenced in his action on the bill by
a money consideration. In referring to
the use of money his remarks were di
rected at persons outside the Legisiaturo.
Neither had he insinuated that he was
apprised of what the Governor's action
would be on the bill, should it nas«. He
had never spoken to the Executive on the
subject, and simply pave it as his proph
ecy that the bill would not —for what he
regarded as proper and potent reasons
receive the Executive's sanction.
A Meeting for the Purpose of Indorsing
The State Hop-Growers' Association
met yesterday morning at grangers'
Hall for the purpose of considering the
bills which are to be acted upon by the
Legislature, relating to the adulteration
of malt liquors and the duty on hops.
A communication was received from
W. S. White, of the Mendoeino Hop-
Growers' Association, inclosing a resolu
tion recently adopted by that body, ask
ing that the State Association use all law
ful means to discourage the present prac
tice of hop-growers who sell their crops
to dealers for long terms in advance of
preparation for market. The resolution
was unanimously adopted.
A resolution was adopted sanctioning
the bill now before the Legislature pro
viding that two per cent, per 100 pounds
be fixed as the legal rate of tare on hops.
The association agreed to use its best
endeavors to secure the passage of a bill
now before tho Legislature, relating to
the adulteration of malt liquors. The bill
provides that all manufacturers of adulte
rated compounds made of hops shall be
guilty of a misdemeanor, and liable to a
nne not exceeding 8500.
The Legislature will also be asked to
make a law to prevent the importation
into this State of diseased hop roots.
Messrs. Flint, Campbell and Lovdul
were appointed a committee to work
among tho legislators for the passage of
the proposed bills.
J. H. Sturtevant, a large hop-grower
of Mendoeino County, was admitted as a
member of the association.

One More of Them is Convicted in the
James Sullivan Voted Another Man's
Xamo, and Will Now Pay
District Attorney Frank Ryan secured
the conviction of another fraudulent
voter in the Superior Court.
This makes two already for this week.
Tho defendant this time was Jaincs
Sullivan. At tho last election Sullivan
presented himself at the polls, at Third
and J streets, and said his name was
Sullivan, and that he resided at tho De
Witt House. He could not remember
'his voting number, but somebody stand
ing conveniently near at hand kindly re
minded him. His actions aroused sus
picion and he was challenged. He then
swore his vote in.
DEPRIVED OF HIS VOTE.
It was not long afterward that the
genuine Sullivan of the DeWitt House
presented himself at the polling place,
with his ballot, and to his surprise was
informed that "he had already voted
once." His protests were of no avail.
The records showed that Sullivan of th«
DeWitt House had voted, and that settled
It didn't settle it, as far as the fraudu
lent Sullivan was concerned, though. Ho
was arrested and thrown into jail, and
has been there ever since, being unable
to get bail.
(»ne of the most important witnesses
who testified against Sullivan was ex-
Police Judge Buckley, before whom Sul
livan had his preliminary examination.
Judge Buckley stated that during that
examination the prisoner confessed that
he had voted fraudulently, and that "a
man" had given him SI 50 "for his trouble.
This "man" had given him the name and
number he voted.
When placed on the stand yesterday
Sullivan could remember nothing about
his testimony before Judge Buckley.
A TOUCH OK TBS "JIMS."
"I had been drinking heavily for somo
time before election," lie said, "and when
I testified in court I was shaking and had
a touch of tho jinis."
Tho defendant stoutly maintained that
he considered that he had a vote, and also
declared that he had registered on tho
"hobo" register, He also assorted that
he Uad really resided at the lodging
house before mentioned, but only for a
few days prior to his registration, as he
had slept most of the time in the Lafay
ette saloon and other recherche establish
ments of the kind. On election day, he
said, ho was considerably the worse for
liquor. A man whom Ho did not know,
but who he thought used to be a "hokey
pokey" dealer in the Lafayette, ap
proached him and asked him if he had a
vote. Upon receiving in affirmative
reply, this individual looked over tho
register and told him what his number
was. This same individual was also
kind enough to assist him to the polls
and sco that be "voted all right."
Charles N. Post, attorney for Sullivan,
offered the "hobo" register in evidence,
and called the attention of the court to
Sullivan's namo therein. Judgo Van
Fleet looked at it and discovered that the
name on the register was John Sullivan,
not James, the naino which tho prisoner
