Alameda's Fusion Isof
a New Brand.
WORDS THAT NOW BURN
COMPLAINT OF WASHINGTON

Non-Partisans May Try to Work
Out the Plans of Certain In

Oakland Office San Francisco Call,
908 Broadway, Sept. 25.
With all her experience of politics and
the ways and wiles of politicians, Oak
land has never been treated to such an
opera bouffe performance as that placed
en the boards yesterday by the combined
political marionettes, who, after ten
hours of quarreling, finally nominated a
The delegates must have returned to
their homes last night wondering why on
earth they had br-n called together. Dur
ing the past week a few dissatisfied Re
publicans, some Populists and Cleveland
Democrats have been talking about an
imaginary thing, yclept a "slate " that
appeared at the Republican convention
last Monday. Blind, deaf and Incapable
of exercising any one of his senses must
be he who failed to see the iron-bound
elate that was presented to the assembled
delegations yesterday. The slate was fu
sion on certain lines and for nine hours
the factions quarreled and publicly and
privately denounced each other in their
vain efforts to knock a hole in that slate.
Thanks to the "iron rule" of rion. M. P.
Tarpey, who knew what was wanted, and
also how to obtain it, the programme
■went through without a hitch. That It
was nauseating, objectionable, repugnant
und unpopular was proved by the speech
es of Robert M. Fitzgerald, Warren B.
English, Attorney T. F. Garrity and Alex
Kosborough, who represent nearly all the
elements in Alameda Democracy.
But there was no option. Fusion had
been promised Maguire and fusion had to
go through, and it did.
"This is a Democratic convention,"
shouted Mr. Garrlty, '"and we were called
here not to take the part of puppets at
Borne variety show, out to eloct a Dem
ocratic ticket, and I move that we pro
"Gentlemen," said ? Mr. Fitzgerald, ',
chairman *of the • fusion committee, ,"I
have run around after those Populists, ■
trying to arrive at some sensible proposi- >
tion with regard to iusion. I am con
vinced no reasonable basis can be at- !
tamed, and I for one do not propose to be
bothered with them any longer." (Wild
"Mr. Chairman," shouted Alex Rosbor
ough, "this is a howling farce. Why'
should we bend the knee to a lot of Pop
ulists or • Silver . Republicans — whatever
they-ara— dissatisfied- Kt>pubjica-rv» or —
metalilsts. We are etltifying and hu
miliating ourselVes by continuing this de
pradlng show. For uod's sake let us be
Democrats and acknowledge that there
are at least enoueh good men 1:. the party
in Aiameda County to name a ticket. ;
(Wilder howls.) ..r ■
"Mr. Chairman, I move that we pro
ceed to carry out the provisions of the ,
call by virtue of which we are i here," '
shouted Warren B. English. "Let us put
up a Democratic ticket from top to bot
tom and proceed at once." (The conven- ,
tion went crazy.)
Tho above quotations and the results '
were a few that were uttered at yester
day's convention while the "great and !
honored" party of Jefferson In Aiameda |
County waited upon tho result of its :
squabble between Sheriff White and his j
friends and J. W. Dutton and his friends." j
Sheriff White was a candidate to succeed j
himself, but could not be nominated by j
the -Democrats, consequently the Popu- j
lists wanted that office conceded to them.
About a year ago Mr. Dutton,' who is a
widower, fell In love with a young lady
against her mother's wishes, and aa the
aged lover refused to desist the - Sheriff
discharged Mr. Dutton, wfi. was one of '
his deputies. On this little scandal hung
the fate of fusion, and it was solely re
sponsible for all the Indignities which
each of the parties heaped upon the other
during' the "ht hours of waiting and
quarreling in committee rooms yesterday j
Mr. Dutton took an oath that White
should not be nominated. The Populist
delegates determined that he should. Mr.
Dutton did all in his power to prevent the
Democrats from conceding the office of
Sheriff to the Populists, and h» succeed
ed. Mr. Dutton won out. Mr. White did
not get his nomination. The old man's
revenge for . his wrecked romance was
attained, and Aiameda County is now :
enjoying the Joke gratis. A ticket which ;
depended upon such an Impolitic adjust
ment can hardly appeal to the intelligence
and sober thoughts of an intelligent
Perhaps the best thing done by the ,
Joint conventions was that which fell to
the part of the Silver Republicans, and
although It was probably gratifying to j
them to have an office conceded them It. ;
Is not easy to understand just what they !
gained. They, nominated . the j Republican j
nominee for Assessor. Henry P. Dalton, !
whoso election was already assured by »
the fact of his former nomination. An
other peculiar feature of the action of |
the Silver Republicans is that their lead- j
ers are generally Bupposed.to be not un- i
friendly to the railroad company, and '
yet they indorsed the most pronounced \
anti-railroad man Aiameda County has !
brought forward with -the exception of
John L. Davle or George C. Pardee.
The conventions sat too long. . They for
got the business which had called them
together. In fact, Mr. English, once of j
Congress, may be fairly said to have been |
trapped. When Chairman Fitzgerald re- j
ported, ihat tho office of Assessor - had
been conceded to the Silver Republicans, j
It did not seem to dawn upon the old
time Democrats that their convention
would, by approving such a report take ;
the office of Assessor entirely out their i
hands. So the report was adopted. After- i
ward it dawned on Warren English that I
something was wrong when the nomina
tion for Assessor was reached and Chair
man Tarpey calmly announced that the
office having been left to the Silver Re
publicans they had nominated Henry P.
Dalton. Mr. English undoubtedly found ,
some" satisfaction in the little fiery speech -
he delivered, but in criminal parlance,
"the jig was up." It. was of course no
surprise to hear Mr. English denouncing
something, or somebody, because the
whole day had been given up to denuncia
tions, but it was a very bitter pill for
"the- great and honored party of Jeffer
son" i to- swallow a Republican nominee
for an exalted office. In this respect the
combined - conventions - played Into ' the
hands of the Republicans, making the so
called fusion more confused than ever.
It would have been better had the Re
publican County Convention placed the
nomination for County Superintendent of
Schools in Washington Township. Not a
. word can be breathed against Mr. Water-
J^ man of Berkeley who received the nomi
nation, and the policy of putting the
i omlnation in the township is one purely
of K^ography and not of personality. In
framing a ticket the whole county needs
to be welded together as much as is pos
sible, in the present instance, It would
have been not only possible but politic to
nominate Mr. Lynch of Washington for
Superintendent of Schools. "Washington
Township is the only section of the
county that has not representation. There
is over a s=cnre of county offices, but there
are only seven wards and six townships,
and it is not unreasonable that each divi
sion should have one candidate. "Wash
ington's delegation went home dissatis
fied, and their local Republican paper at
once expressed Itß discontent. They asked,
and not without reason, why they went
to a county convention with a delegation
solid for their favorite and came back
with nothing. The office of County Super
intendent of Schools is an office that
should be filled by a man from the In
terior of the county as logically as a
Supervisor should be elected from his
proper district. The Superintendent has
no jurisdiction whatever over the schools
of the cities and yet a city man Is always
nominated for the office. Mr. Lynch is a
county school principal, and although
their disappointment is bitter it is to be
hoped that Washington Township will be
at least recognized after the election, when
several good ajid lucrative deputyships
will have to be filled.
It is hard to divine the exact purpose
for which the so-called non-partisan
movement is springing up at this time.
Four years ago a certain dissatisfied ele
ment put up a ticket under the Non-
Partisan heading, but elected nobody, al
though they made the election of several
Populists possible. These Non-Partisans
claim to be Republicans, and many of
them have taken a leading part In Re
publican demonstrations. XI this particu
lar time policy would seem to dictate that
they use their efforts to cement the party
rather than gratify personality and self
ishness by attempting to break it up. If
their purpose be to take up several so
called independent candidates and amal
gamate them into a county ticket on the
ground of "purity and reform" It would
be well for them to Inquire deeply Into
the records of some of those whom they
would assist and compare them with
those of men already nominated.
An analysis of the situation suggests
that the movement is being brought
about by Interests antagonistic to Dr.
Pardee. At the close of the Sacramento
convention. Colonel McLaughlin stated
that Dr. Pardee was the logical successor
to the Republican nominee for Governor.
Since the opening of the county cam
paign. Dr. Pardee has personally done
much to help the Republican cause, and
has pledged his support to every man on
the ticket from Governor to Constable.
It would, therefore, seem to be but rea
sonable to expect every Republican
worthy of the name to keep in line this
year more than ever, but although the
danger Is small, there yet appears to be
a disposition on the part or a few to
obtain notoriety by risking a party repu
tation which they have done little to
upbuild or maintain.
One of the most absurd statements i
made by the conglomerate parties is that j
relating to Supervisor Talcott. For four '
years Mr. Talcott has faithfully repre- i
sented his district, and every cyclist, j
teamster and dairyman ie now a unit j
in bearing testimony to the splendid con
dition of the roads in his large territory, i
Four years ago when he was elected Mr. j
Talcott faced a difficult tusk. His dis- :
trict had run down and there was much |
dissatisfaction. In fact, a strong effort i
was made to elect a Democrat to the of- ,
nee. During his term old John Talcott i
has been aa faithful a servant as Ala- '
meda County ever had, while he has not !
done cheap politics or played to the gal- ;
lery every time the occasion arose. Cer- '■
tain interests are anxious to secure con- !
trol of the Board of Supervisors, and al- !
ready they are assailing 'Honest John j
Talcott." I have seen Mr. Talcott vote
hundreds of times in the Board of Super
visers, and I do not believe any one ever
voted more conscientiously. Talcott Is ■
not a politician, but a business man of
honor and integrity, and this opinion is
that expressed by his district and not by !
a little coterie always anxious to plaster '
its friends with pruise.

The grand bazar to be held by St.

open the bazar. The chief executive of
the State and his staff will be In the
hall at exactly 8 o'clock. Special music
has been prepared for the occasion and
it needs no prophet to predict that the
event will be one to be long and pleas
During the more than forty-seven years
of the existence of the parish it has never
yet had a fair or bazar, nor has it ever
received money from any source other J
than from the ordinary- revenues. In |
years gone by when very many wealthy j
Catholics lived In the pariah, the money j
received from the ordinary revenues was
sufficient for all necessary purposes. But
of late years many of the wealthiest :
residents moved away from the district, |
bo that the parish is now composed for j
the most part of the working clauses.
But upon the working classes the port
few years have been exceptionally severe,
and hence, although the parishioners at
present are liberal according to their ■
means, yet when any work beyond the ■
ordinary has to be done, as the repair- ,
ing of the church and the building of a
parochial residence, which are necessary'
at present, an appeal for outside help,
un appeal particularly to their friends i
and former fellow-parishoners, becomes
an absolute necessity.
During the bazar an entertainment
will be given each evening by the dif
ferent booths in turn, and each day
while the bazar lasts lunch will be
served from 11 to 2.
Following are the names of those who
will be in charge of the booths:
