LEGISLATURE—--29TH SESSION.
The Senatorial Election Held in Check
by the Boodle Inquiry.
Governor Markham's Vetoes Sustained
by tho Senate—Another Bill for
Stevenson's Relief.
SENATE.
Sacramento, March 18, _89L
The Senate met at 10 o'clock a m., Presi
dent pro tern. Fraser in tho chair. Roll
called, and quorum present. Prayer by
the Chaplain. Reading of the journal
dispensed with.
Mr. Voorhies offered a concurrent res
olution providing that a joint committee
bo appointed on behalf of both branches
of the Legislature to inquiro into the
matter of certain alleged disclosures with
reference to some papers found in a waste
basket which it was claimed involved tho
integrity of members of the Legislature.
Tbe resolution was adopted, and the
Chair appointed as such committee
Messrs. Voorhies, Crandall and Berry.
Assembly messages were then taken
up. and the Senate, on motion of Mr.
Heacock, refused to recede from its
amendments to A. B. 235, in which tho
Assembly declined to concur.
The special order, consideration of tho
Governor's veto of A. B. 741, for the re
lief of Colonel J. D.Stevenson, was called
up, and Mr. Carpenter spoke in behalf of
sustaining the Executive's veto. Colonel
Stevenson, he said, had no legal claim
against the State. The services he had
rendered were not to the State, but to the
Federal Government, and had been again
and again rejected by it. If the Legisla
ture was solicitous to aid Colonel Steven
son, he (Carpenter) had a proposition to
make. It would take just $22 apiece for
• rich member to raise the sum named in
the MIL and he would give _•_.">. If this or
Kindred bills should be passed over the
Governor's veto, what would become of
the pledges thut Senators had made to the
people?
Mr. Maher advocated the passage of
tin- bill over the Governor's veto. The
money expended by Colonel Stevenson,
he said, was for the beuetit of the State,
and the latter should in honor recom
pense this old citizen for his actual out
lay.
Mr. Dray upheld the Governor's action
in vetoing the bill, as did Messrs. Ostrom
and Mead. The latter moved that the
matter be laid over until Saturday, and
ilirit in tiie meantime some Senator pre
piiie a bill in accordance with the sug
gestions made in the Governor's veto
message to meet the equities of tbo claim
of • lolonel Stevenson.
Mr. Carpenter wanted the veto message
acted upon at once, and by a vote of 5
ayes to 2:1 noes tlie Senate refused to pass
the bill over the Governor's veto.
SMALL APPROPRIATION KILLS.
Mr. Preston was granted leave to in
troduce a bill appropriating money to
pay the salary of the phonographic re
porter in the Attorney-General's oilice
for tho remainder of the fiscal year. The
bill was made a case ol urgency, read
three times and passed.
Mr. McComas was granted leave to in
troduce a bill appropriating |1,500 to pay
the salaries of attaches of the Legislature
for the remainder of the present session.
It was made a case of urgency and passed.

APPROPRIATION HILL.
Tho Senate then resumed consideration
of the general appropriation bill, and the
Senate committee amendments were all
adopted up to the clauses appropriating
money for the support of the various
District Agricultural Associations, when
.Mi. Crandall offered a substitute for the j
entire section, reducing tho sums foi*
each district,
Messrs. Campbell of Siskiyou and Car
penter favored the amendment of Mr.
Crandall. and Mr. Mead opposed it. The
latter favored liberal support to the Agri

the bill, claiming that 110 person should
be required to labor for less than _>2 per
day. He did not think the reasons ad
vanced by the Kxocutive for vetoing the
bill weivwcll founded.
Mr. Crandall sustained the veto, and
Mr. Britt opposed it. The latter claimed

it to be just.

lution, aud hoped it would be adopted.
He said there had been in the last twenty
four hours statements in San Francisco
and Sacramento papers derogatory to his
integrity. He courted the fullest investi
gation. The account in the San Fran
cisco Bulletin, in so far as it regarded
himself, he declared to be absolutely false
in every detail. Tho statement of Captain
Mnrion in lho Record-Union wa.s a true
statement of the -case. There was not a
scrap of paper in tho possession of the
Attorney-General or anywhere else—
though he knew not what "General Hart
hail —tbat could in any way connect his
(Dibble's.) name with improper legisla
tion concerning tho United States Seua
torship or any other measure. He called

VAN FLEET REVERSED.
The Supreme Court's Opinion in the
Matter of Bauquier's Estate.
Mrs. Rode is Not Disqualified to Act in
tho Capacity of Executrix
of the Will.
The dispute over the division of the
estate of Joseph Bauquier of this city,
who died some time ago, was settled yes
terday by a decision of the Supreme
Court.
The case is familiar to Sacramentans.
Mary C. Rode was named in the will of
Joseph Bauquier as executrix without
bonds, and she liled her petition for pro
bate of the will in the Superior Court,
and for tho issuance to her of letters testa
mentary. Objections to her appointment
were filed by her brothers, who woro also
legatees named in the will, upon the al
leged ground that in the life-time of Bau
quier she,
BY MEANS OF FALSEHOOD,
Intimidation and undue influence, and
for the purpose of pecuniary gain and to
obtain an unjust portion ofthe estato, in
duced her father to assign to her 31_.,5_3 88
in money and some real and personal
property. This allegation was followed
try a charge that she was incompetent to
act as executrix for want of integrity, and
that she was generally incompetent.
An answer was tiled to these ob
jections, and Judge Van Fleet made
an order declaring that Mary Rode
was incompetent to executo the
duties of the trust of executrix for
lack of integrity, and that she was antag
onistic and hostile and asserted claims
adverse to the estate. Her application to
bo appointed was accordingly denied,
and upon the order and a motion for a
new trial the appeal was taken.
THE QUESTION OF INTEGRITY.
The Suprenio Court says that tho word
integrity means soundness of moral prin
ciple and character, and tho evidence is
not such as would justify a finding that
Mrs. Rode was lacking "in this regard.
"We are not certain," says the court,
"from the peculiar language of the find
ing quoted, that the learned Judge of the
court below intended to say anything
moro than the adverse interests of
the petitioner would prevent her from
fairly, justly and properly protecting the
estate, and that this is a want of integrity
within the meaning of the statute. We
do not think, however, that the mere fact
that the appellant claims property as her
own which the other legatees insist be
loiij_s to the estate, would of itself, and
without some reference to the honesty of
her claim, show a want of integrity."
_____jr____t___NoES CITED.
The remaining inquiry as to whether
or not the court was justified in denying
Mrs. Rode's application upon the ground
that she wa.s antagonistic and hostile, is
answered by the Supreme Court, by
quoting sections of the Code of Civil
Procedure, and also decisions in similar
crises of the Court of Appeals of Ken
tucky, the Chancery of .Sew York and a
California Suprenio Court opinion. In
one of the cases, it was admitted that one
of the applicants could not read, write or
apeak English, and thAt she was sixtv
nine years old, but the court held that
these facts did not show any want of un
derstanding within the statute. They
might have rendered it difficult for her
to perform some of tlie duties properly,
yet they did not render it impossible.
THE JUDGMENT REVERSED.
The Supreme Court reverses Judge Van
F.oft's decision, und says that while the
court is authorized to refuse to appoint an
executor named in a will, for want of in
tegrity, yet, for manifest reasons, this
power should not be exercised except
upon clear and convincing evidence es
tablishing such disqualifying fact. The
executor may always be removed after ap
pointment unless he discharges the duty
of his trust faithfully, and as directed by
law.

Itnlian "Colonies."
Eds. Record-Union: Being a little
befogged I would bo glad to gain some
information. For tho past three days 1
have noticed in the extracts from various
papers, and in tho telegrams, allusions to
to the Italian colonies in New Orleans,
San Francisco, Chicago, Xew York, etc.
In the innocence of my heart I had here
tofore supposed tliat onr Government had
rigidly onforce.l the Monroe doctrine for
the past seventy years, as it certainly did
in the case of Maximilian. A part of that
doctrine was that tho monarchies of
Europe should plant no more colonies in
America. Now, to my astonishment, I_
find that Italy has been enabled to plant'
colonies in tho very heart of our country.
I should like lo be informed when aiid
how they were planted, and what the
United States Government lias been do
ing all this time. It must have been
asleep.
If such really be the ease, it is time the
Monroe doctrine had the dust of ages
brushed oil' it and was put on guard
again, and Italy and all other European
nations were invited politely, as Louis
Napoleon was, to remove their colonies
from our country. Altaus.
