It was the Republican party that closed up and

The candidate for office is 'full of trials and

not know how things political are done. There
are things comical : and things serious, things
pleasant and thinKS unpleasant, things true

man who asnires to become a public officer.

crowded and many were unable to obtain

There was plenty of enthusiasm. Great
interest centered in Dr. Pardee and his
address and lie was frequently applauded.
Dr. Pardee, accompanied by Orrln Hen

was met at the station by a delegation of
leading Republicans. He was escorted
to the Hotel St. James, where he was
tendered a reception until 6:30 , o'clock.
Many citizens called and were made ac
quainted with the nominee. The Army
and Navy Republican League, headed by
a band, and the Veterans, the Sons of
Veterans, the Stanford Young Men's Re
publican Club and the University, of the
Pacific boys escorted Dr. Pardee from
the hotel to the theater at 8 o'clock. ;
E. A. Hayes, chairman of the Republi

meeting to order. On the stage were a
large number of vice presidents. -Ameri

Hon. Joseph R. Patton was introduced
as chairman of the meeting. He made a

But our, Democratic friends are saying
through their orators and newspapers, "What
has the election of a Governor of California
got to do with hard times?" A Governor, they
say. can have no effect either way upon the

If California should turn to the Democratic
party now, and say that it has no' use for the
party of the dead McKinley and the living
Roosevelt, the party of progress and prosper
ity; if the State of California should go
Democratic this year and turn its 40,000 ma
jority of two years ago Into a Democratic
majority, that act will be taken by the people
of this nation to mean that Calif ornians are
ungrateful 'and. that, two years from now it
will vote for the Democratic Presidential nom
inee. And so. when j our Democratic friends
tell you that the present election in California
has no national importance and no influence
on the coming national election two years
hence, they are not telling quite the truth.
Has any one forgotten how the Democratic
press. Just before the election in Maine a few
days ago. were full of prophecies of a Demo
cratic victory In the old Pine Tree State,
and pointed a moral of Democratic vic
tory two years - from now, based upon
their false predictions that Maine had lost
her Republican wits and was about to degen
erate into Democracy. But the old Pine State,
as true to Republicanism as the needle is to
the Pole star, confounded the Democratic
press by giving us an unusually large Repub
lican majority. Let no man, nor woman
either, delude himself - or herself * with the
false idea that the coming election will have
no influence on the reseating of Roosevelt In
the , Presidential chair. It will, and no one
knows it better than our despairing Democrat
