Furor in Two County
DEMOCRATIC OFFER SPURNED
NEGOTIATIONS OUT OFF BY A
Dittmar Announces VThat He Shall
Decline the Nomination for
Congress in the First
Sp«eial Dispatch to The Call.
REDDING, Aug. 27.— The County
Central Committees of the Democratic
and Populist parties set the date for
the county nominating conventions of
each party for the same day, August
27,. with the end In view of accomplish
ing fusion of the two organizations.
Both conventions convened in this city
at 10 o'clock this morning, and up to 6
o'clock In the evening nothing had been
accomplished. The proeeeedings were
characterized by scer.-s of confusion
never equaled In the political history
of Northern California.
Early in the day the Democratic con
vention appointed a conference com
mittee to meet with a like body from
the Populist convention, and it was not
until 6 o'clock that they got together.
At 7 o'clock the Populists rejected the
whole fusion proposition by a derisive
vote. The Populist platform was then
taken up and read in the convention.
During the confusion of the afternoon
a plank in the platform was read in
dorsing T. W. Shanahan for Governor,
Fowler for Lieutenant Governor and
Dr. J. A. Cole for Congress in this dis
trict. While the convention was wait
ing on the conference committee a
more pacific plank was substituted, in
dorsing the entire middle-of-the-road
State ticket. The substitution of this
plank without the convention's con
sent was singularly not noticed by any
of the delegates, though the middle-of
the-road declaration went through
with a rush.
I T pon the adoption of the platform
M. E. Dittmar, the fusion nominee for
Congress in the First District, arose
and in a calm and dispassionate speech '
declared that while he should decline
the nomination for Congress, he would
support the Maguire ticket and take
the stump In Its behalf. His newspa
per, the Morning Searchlight, would
support Democrats and Populists alike
throughout the campaign. He then re
fused to take further part in the delib
erations of the conventions.
The failure of the fusion proposition
will Insure a clean sweep for the Re
publicans in county affairs and give
to Henry T. Gage a large plurality for
Of Interest to the Coast.

GOOD GOVERNMENT LEAGUE IN
County Ticket Will Be Nominated
and the Support of All Re
form Forces Solicited in
Special Dispatch to The Call.
SAN JOSE, Aug. 27.— The Good Gov- j
ernment League delegates, who were
deprived of their seats In the county
convention through the disreputable !
tactics of the Rea gang, reassembled !
In convention at Rutherford Hall to- j
day. J. R. Johns was chairman and ,
K. W. Conant secretary. A majority
of delegates was present and the meet- j
ing was an enthusiastic one.
It was decided to take an active part j
In the campaign and put up a ticket j
including men who would command |
the respect of the voters of the entire j
It was stated that no steps had been j
taken looking to amalgamation with j
the Democratic and Populist forces,
and, although a conference committee
hud been appointed, it had not yet met
with other like committees. The com- j
mittee on platform reported as fol
lows, and the report was unanimously
The Republicans of Santa Clara County
in convention assembled and represent- j
ing the movement for good government I
Indorse the entire State Republican tick- \
et headed by that stalwart Republican
and leader, Henry T. Gage.
We heartily pledge our support of and
will work to secure the carrying out of
everj' provision of the platform of the
Republican State Convention at Sacra
The following plank from said plat
form, which we especially indorse, haa
been brought about by the unimpeach
able array of evidence of fraud and cor
ruption paraded before the credentials j
committee of the Republican State Con- |
vention by the representatives of good
government from Santa Clara County:
"The purity of elections is the salvation i
of the country- All parties willingly
submit to an election fairly conducted
i and in which the ballots have been hon
estly counted; no other election should
be tolerated or permitted. The founda
tion of all selections of officials is the
I primary of a political party; such pri
maries should be as honestly conducted
as general elections. No partisan is
bound by the decision of a dishonest prl- j
I mary." ,
In compliance with the pro-visions of i
the Republican State platform. which |
states that no partisan is bound by the de
cision of a dishonest primary, and owing
to the fact that the primary election of
delegates to the so-called Republican
convention was carried by fraud and
corruption, as proved by affidavits of our
most stalwart Republicans of Santa
Clara County, the delegates voted for
by the workers for good government
are declared the regular delegates to this ,
convention without reference to the re- j
turns made to the County Central Com-
The burden of taxation is resting very
heavily upon the citizens of Santa Clara
County, owLng to the unexampled prodi
gality and wastefulness in the expendi
ture of our public funds that has char
acterized the administration of the finan
cial affairs of the county in the past.
All candidates nominated or Indorsed by
this convention are hereby pledged to a
thoroughly honest, business-like and
economical administration of our county
affairs. and to a reduction of taxation to
the lowest possible limit consistent with
the public welfare.
We view with the most profound regret
and alarm the making of our public
schools a part of the political machine in
this county. ' _ -
We commend the pupils of the High
School of San Jose for the fearless and
manly fight they are making against po
litical Interference in school affa r*.
which is demoralizing our boys and girls
and crippling the efficiency of our schools.
A committee of eleven shall be appoint
ed by the chair to confer with all other
persons or organizations that are work
ing in me interests of good government
for Santa Clara County, with a view to
ward making su«-h arrangements as will
further the cause of good government
and tend to the overthrow of corruption,
rings and bosses.
A vote of thanks was tendered to
the Ministerial Union for Its action in
sending a resolution to the State con
vention protesting against the seating
of the Rea delegates.
A resolution protesting against the
appointment of John D. Mackenzie, one
of Rea's lieutenants, as postmaster or
this city, was adopted and ordered for
warded to President McKinley.

legislative campaign in San Francisco,
and will probably provide its chief feat
The prospects In the legislative field
in both parties will now take form rap-
Idly, since the State conventions are over
with and municipal politics come to the
front. It 1b yet a little too early for a
showing of prospective strength on the
part of legislative candidates, but the
woods are pretty well tilled with am
bitious one 6 who want to represent tne
metropolis in the body that makes and
fixes laws for California. The following
are among those who are either "being
talked of" for the Senate and Assemrny
or who are themselves mentioning their
ambitions around headquarters.
In the Eighteenth Senatorial District
among the Republican aspirants and pos
sibilities are Michael Coffee, who was
once an unsuccessful candidate In this
strongly Democratic District; James Fal
lon, County Committeeman, who was a
candidate for the Assembly at a former
election, and Henry Kelly, who won the
race for the Assembly two years ago. It
Is also understood that "Jack" Hoey has
senatorial ambitions and Is a prominent
candidate for the nomination. There is
quite a crop of Democratic aspirants In
the field. For some time Alex. Greggains
has been regarded as a possible candi
date, but he declares that he will not
enter the race. Charles Gildea and P. J.
Tomalty are spoken of, as are Thomas
Farrell, ex-polltlcian and now bailiff in
Judge Mogan's Police Court; John Twigg,

There is a small army of possible can
didates for the Senate on the Republican
side in the Twenty-second District, com
posed of the Fortieth and Forty-first As
sembly districts. Assemblyman Sig Bett

as in the field. Others who are included
in the speculations of politicians are: H.
C. Dibble, Frank H. Powers, Z. M. Dodge,
Jacob Samuels, Architect Charles Mooser,
Thomas Eager. George Walker and T. P.

understood that M. C. Hassett may seek

The Twenty-fourth District, com
posed of the Forty-second and rorty
thlrd Assembly districts, is likewise fer

an independent candidate in opposition
to the late Senator Mahoney four years
ago, are out early and vigorously for the
nomination, and other x-epubllcans who
are understood to be ready to enter the
