THE CASE OF ASSEMBLYMAN BRU
NER.
A San Francisco journal has preferred
against one of the representatives from
this county in tho present Legislature
charges of the most serious character.
They are, in brief, that Assemblyman
El wood Bruner of Sacramento, in reward
for his exertions in behalf of the police
increase bill, was promised, and bar
gained for tho right to name, six of tho
new appointees upon the police force of
San Francisco; that the bill having become
a law, Mr. Bruner has ongaged in the venal
traffic of selling these appointments, at
the figure of $400 each; that in a par
ticular instance he recommended a name
for appointment supposed to represent a
living person, but which name was ficti
tious, and was created for the sole pur
pose of trapping the Assemblyman; that
he wrote a recommendation and request
to the San Francisco Police Commission
ers for this mythical applicant, asking for
his appointment, and that thereupon the
masking go-between paid to Mr. Bruner's
agent in his presence 5400 for such recom
mendation, it being understood that it
was equivalent to an appointment, sinco
it was represented that tho Police Com
mission of San Francisco would recog
nize and confirm it.
The presumption of innocenco must
prevail in favor of the Assemblyman
thus charged, uutil he is given opportu
nity to reply to his accusers before a tri
bunal of competent jurisdiction and to
establish his guiltlessness. This much
the commonest dictates of the sentiment
of fair play demand, and this suspension of
judgment will be accorded. But it can
not aud should not be long maintained
awaiting the investigation that must be
had.
For the people of the State have the right
to an immediate and searching inquisi
tion into this matter. There must not bo
attempted any smothering process. Noth
ing worse could happen to Mr. Bruner,
or more humiliate his constituency than
an adjournment of the Legislature with
out such an investigation being ordered
and completed.
The situation is simply this, that the
charge—accompanied by evidences which
are prima facie of tho most damaging
character, but which, if untrue, can be
controverted—having been made, and
Assemblyman Bruner having entered his
denial as reported elsewhere in our col
umns, and having charged that his rela
tion to the affair was that of ono trapping
others for the purpose of exposing their
trickery, an issue is joined at the bar
of public opinion that must be tried at
once. Any delay that results in post
ponements until the Legislature has ad
journeel will be construed by public judg
ment into confession of inability to reply
to the charges before a legislative tribunal
and fear to face the accuser.
Unless such an investigation is ordered
at once, and such a one as will search tho
whole business to the innermost bowels
of the affair, Mr. Bruner must resign,
pr the people of Sacramento, whose rep
resentative he is, will demand his re
signation, and in no unmistakable terms.
There can be no possible misconception
of the expressed sentiment of the people
on that head. Assemblyman Bruner
stands charged with venality that, if not
as is claimed a crime before tho law, is
in the estimation of the moral sense of
tho people heinous. They expect their
representative to follow up his denial,
unofficially made, by rising in his place
without any delay and demanding an in
vestigation at onco by the Assembly, of
which he is a member, into the charge of
corruption laid at his door through the
public agency of the press.
Corruption stalks in this day so bra
zenly ami unconcealed in public places;
the traffic in patronage is so unblushing
and defiant; the e'hink of the coin of the
money changers is so unmistakably audi
ble in the halls of legislation, the forum
of justice and the sacred precincts of the
polling-place, that men are beginning to
lose faith in the possibilities of self-gov
ernment. Wealth demanding high place
upon no other footing than its abil
ity to buy; corruption permeating politi
cal mediums from caucus to convention,
and defeating the free will expression of
the people; venality tainting official
transactions and burrowing in the very
heart of self-government; the rule of
bosses and the usurpation of rings, the
almost universal conviction that the
shortest road to position lies through the
purse—all these things are operating iti
two directions, embittering the public
heart and searing the public conscience.
Related to the first there is hope iv the
revolt that results from conditions such
as indicated; there is in the second a
peril without hope.
When dintnint nf tho«w> in whom we
have reposed confidence crystallizes into
indifference concerning the character of
public servants, the means they employ
to attain their ends, aud traffic in patron
age becomes by very convention the pub
lic standard of political success, the end
of human freedom in the American re
public and the failure of self-government
are not far distant.
It is such things as are charged against
Assemblyman Bruner that augment the
drift of public thought toward the condi
tion of hopelessness. It is therefore of
more than local or State importance that
such charges shall not be put aside, but
that there shall be searching and unspar
ing investigation. Smothering, white
washing or confusing, if attempted will
but feed the distrust of the people, and
will hasten tbo hour of their revolt, be
foro which will go down all manner of
org»nisms dangerous to the social and po
litical systems upon which the perpetuity
of free institutions is dependent.
Wo repeat, the public demand is that
there be an immediate and thorough in
vestigation by the Assembly into these
charges agaiust Assemblyman Bruuer.
He has been the law officer of this county;
he has prosecuted and secured the con
viction of many a petty thief, and through
his agency as such officer many a man
has been sent to the penitentiary for far
less grave offensos than that charged
against him. It thereforo behooves him
to bo prompt in presorting himself for
tho investigation and in soliciting it, that
it may be demonstrated that the law
making body of the Stato does not deal
less with its offenders, if guilt is estab
lished, than it charges upon tho law of
licers of the State in their prosecution of
crime. For tho sake of his constituency,
of legislative honor, and of the fair fame
of California, every true man will hope
that tho charges of infamous ofi'enso
against the Assemblyman will prove to
be untrue ; if there has been tho attempt
against a legislator, and his rela
tion to it was that of exposure, -the
citizens of California will expect that fact
to be mado perfectly clear and with em
phasis, that the offenders may bo dealt
with as justice demands. But if the
charges against the legislator are proved
true, every citizen holding commonest
regard for the cleaulinoss of our system
of government will expect the judgment
to bo unhesitating and direct, and the
punishment to be adoquate.
This is no matter of mercy or mincing;
it is one of supremo justice and of un
faltering punishment of guilt wherever
it is found. It is, in its importance to our
system, superior to any men it may in
volve, and before the demand for its en
tire uncovering every other consideration
must give way.
FREE SCHOOL-BOOK BILL.
Senate bill 154, now under reconsidera
tion in the Assembly, should not become
a law. It provides that in school dis
tricts, cities, or towns, the people may
decide by vote if they will furnish the
Stato text-books free to pupils of the pub
lic schools, the money to purchase them
being raisetl by taxation. Ths books are
to be considered as the property of the
district and to be loaned to pupils through
the agency of the teachers, who are to
keep a check list to insure their return
at the close of each term. If a pupil
loses or destroys a book he or she must
replace it by a new one.
A serious objection to the bill is that it
destroys self-helpfulness among parents,
and in a senso it pauperizes tho pupils.
Still another objection is that public prop
erty in private hands never receives the
care that ownership insures. Again, it
increases taxation, enlarges the tax rate,
and though it could be shown that the
books would cost the people in the aggre
gate no more, yet it will tend to augment
the complaint against excessive taxation
upon wliieh politicians play to advance
their selfish ends. It must be apparent
to all that a far greater number of books
would be used under a free system than
where possession is the result of personal
payment, which insures care in their use.
Tho provision that thoso who misuse or
lose books must purchase others in their
stead amounts to nothing, for no penalty
attaches to refusal or neglect to make
gootl the loss or damage. Under the
present law those who are indigent, who
cannot purchase books, aro supplied at
State cost, and that is surely far enough
to go in the eiirection of pauperizing the
people.
Section 0 of tho bill is very much in
volved, and would seem to operate to
prevent any private schools, or pupils
under private tutors, from purchasing
State school books. The true polity is to
sell the books to all schools, all pupils, all
teachers. The Stato does so now antl
why it should reverse this policy cannot
be shown. Hit is said that Section 9 re
fers only to disposition of books procured
under the free rule, to outside schools, we
reply that the section is not clear in its
expression if that is intended. It cer
tainly will boar the construction that is
placed upon it that it will prevent any
but public schools using the books. At
best tho section is involved in ambiguity
and may well be suspected as being used
as means by the book rings to enable
them to throttle the private schools anew
and compel them to use publishers' books.
But the one strong and chief objection
to the bill is that it increases the cost to
the taxpayer for the support of the
schools, and to just that extent will tend
to cultivate enmity to the State text
books. Let us get the school book revolv
ing fund into a condition in which it can
demonstrate its ability to reproduce itself,
before we attempt to enlarge the facilities
for procuring the books, and stimulate a
elisposition to misuse them.
The opportunity to do justice to a
claimant is now afforded the State. The
bill to allow the claim of Captain Mullan
for the percentage due him lor services
rendered in securing from the Govern
ment the money due to California in the
matter of the Indian war claims, has
passed one house of the Legislature and
should become a law. The money was
recovered through the agency of Captain
Mullan ; ho WM the State's agent for that
SACRAMENTO DAILY RECORD-UNION, FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 1891.—SIX PAGES.
purpose; it was^to his skill, perseverance
and energy that we are indebted for the
receipt of our dues ; by contract with the
State he became entitled to his fees; he
was unjustly refused them under a former
administration, and it is proper that tho
error should be now corrected and the
debt paid. The sum is small, but the
principle involved of the State standing
to its contract is great.
The ballot bill is to be decided for or
against finally to-day. Let the friends of
the measure stand together, neither per
mitting nor suggesting amendments. It
has fair promise of passage; it is an
eminently wise measure and will tend to
remove the reproach that bossism and
trickery have visited upon our political
system. Tho Senato bill ia tho best
drawn of any of the ballot laws in this
country, and should stand or fall upon its
merits as it is, and not be imperiled by
amendments.

A RARE OPPORTUNITY
Good Agricultural Land for $10
to $20 per Acre.
The Pacific Improvement Company has re
cently purchased twelve thousand acres of
land in the heart of Tehama County, for the
purpose of promoting subdivision and settle
ment. This land embraces lands from first
class Sacramento Valley agricultural land, to
land of fair average quality, and is offered
at from $10 to $20 per acre, in subdivisions
ot 40, 80,120,1C0 and32o acres.
The terms upon which these lands are offered
are especially attractive. They will be sold in
subdivisions, as above indicated, by the pay
ment of interest only for three years, at which
time the purchiiser can begin the payment ol
principal by paying tho first of Aye equal an
nual installments. Thus no part of the prin
cipal is to bo paid for three years, and then
the purchaser is to have five years In which
to pay five equal annual installments, with
interest at the rate of 7 per cent, per annum,
making payments extending over a period of
eight years. Intending purchasers are as
sured that this is an opportunity to purchase
laud of fair average quality at §10 per acre,
and good agricultural land at $20 an acre,
with other grades of land at prices to corre
spond between these figures.
The assertion is frequently made that^ood
lands, suitable for general farming, and es
pecially adapted for fruit-growing, cannot be
had in California for less than from $G0 to
$100 an acre. An examination of the land
subject of this advertisement will prove to
home-seekers that this is an opportunity for
the purchase of good agricultural land at $20
un acre, and for qualities grading down to fair
agricultural land at $10 an acre, on terms
of payment which should make the disposi
tion of these lands to actual settlers a result
easy of accomplishment.
The primary object of the purchase of this
body of laud was the breaking up of a large
holding for the purpose of promoting its settle.
ment in smaller quantities and its devotion to
diligent husbandry.
