DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE FOR GOV
ERNOR WHO ADDRESSED A BIG
MEETING IN OAKLAND. >
am expected to say something nice of Oakland.
A remark. made* by Senator Barth once when
he was here has always remained with me. He
said: "When a Sacramentan dies = he wants
to get to Oakland." To- say something pleas
nnt in the place one is speaking it seems to be
quite the custom among politicians. The late
Vice President Stevenson, when addressing an
audience in Missouri, remarked if . he ever
changed his residence he would choose a home
In Missouri. It worked like a charm. In Col
orado the audience was captured -by the fame
pleasantry:' "When; the .- tourists reached Fort
Yuma,- In Arizona, , where it was 120 degrees In
the shade, every one wondered If Stevenson
would have the -temerity to repeat the remark.
There was only a bunch of Indians to talk to.
Their wearing apparel consisted of a olrigle
blanket each. Stevenson was there, however.
He said, "If I ever change my dress I. will
However, if I change my residence I don't
believe I will come to Oakland. I 'will go to
Sacramento. -While thia may deprive Oakland
of an honor, you will be compensated by. a con
tinuance of four years of residence of -your
distinguished townsman, who Is in' the race
for Governor. - • .
THANKS THE DELEGATION".
I do not. ask the. support of the people of
Oakland because I am an Oakland boy. I
want your support- because I am a California
man. If my education has not been . sufficient
to enable me to represent all districts, Oak
land, San Francisco, San Diego, and all of this
great State fairly and equally, irrespective of
sections, , then \ am not fit to get In the Gov
ernor's chair and you should not vote for me.
When I am Governor, I do not want to be the
Governor of only a district, 'but. all of Cali
In a revival meeting a drunken man asked
the preacher which was the quickest way to
reach heaven. "Turn to the right and keep
going" was the quick response. That Is what
I have done. I never have given a pledge to
a corporation. I have been right and I am
going to try to keep going. right. I own my
self and am proud of the property.

egation for standing by me in' that conven

lurks nothing but - ruin behind the prospect,
of a Dembcratic- victory. And still our Dem

California has . now a solid Republican ¦ rep

I have been asked to say what, in my judg
ment, is the greatest issue in this campaign.
Ahd I unhesitatingly answer that the continued
prosperity of our people is the greatest issue
of this or any other campaign. If our farmers
and our miners, our cattle and eheep men, our
hortlculturifcts, our merchants, .our vltlcultur
lsts. our sugar men, our lumber men, our oil
men, our produce people and the thousand and
one other people interested in our many manu
factories are prosperous, then, of course, every
body is prosperous. But what party and what
person are responsible for the great prosperity
of this country to-day? Who closed the Demo
cratic "soup-houses of eight years ago? Who
opened up our mills and manufactories, lit the
fires under their cold boilers and set them run
ning overtime in their endeavor to supply their
trade? Who filled the empty dinner pails of the
working people and gave them work, and
changed .their cold and cheerless lodging Into
warm arid happy homes, presided over by sing
ing wives and filled with laughing children?
You know as well as I that it was McKinley
and .the Republican -party. .

publican party has not been the foremost power
for good in this country. It gave us Lincoln
and Grant; It gave us Garfield and Blaine; it
gave us McKinley and Roosevelt— each • one of
whom was the man of the hour and served his
country in its times o;f greatest need.
Our savings banks are running over with
money deposited by our people; our manufac
tories are rushing with all their might to catch
up with their orders; our people are. all em
ployed at wages such as they never earned be
fore; our exports during the last • five . years
have exceeded. in value by many- millions of
dollars our exports for the hundred years pre
ceding, and the American flag la known again
around, the world. Are our, people ready to
change all this and again place in power the
party which 'eight yea'rs ago made such a fail
ure in governing us?
Our Democratic friends tell us that the-com
ing State election will, have no influence on th«'
national . election two; years . from now. But
there are Congressmen and a Senator to elect —
and those Congressmen and that Senator should
be solidly Republican to help President Roose

It .'In. that way, and in .that , way only, can
the prosperity which McKinley gave us ba con
tinued. But I do not believe that the people
of the State of California are Hired of the pros
perity they now enjoy, and I, therefore, do not
believe that they will, on the 4th of next No

I have been told of late that all trusts are
dangerous. They are. Mark Hanna and Pier
pont Morgan are now raising $1,000,000 to send
to the Philippines to create a religious trust.
Just what else they intend to grab Is not
known, i ,
The trust feelins has spread, and It fell to
Oakland -to have the' first political trust. Six
months ago down at the county clubs the fac
tions were at dagger points. . Lukens and Nus
baumer and the rest of them were all out.
Neither of them would trust the other around
the corner. But suddenly Republican harmony
came about, and the only fight was about' the
division of the offices. Six months before the
enactment of the farce" known' as the 'Repub
lican County Convention every office had been
parceled out. Let me tell you that some other
people want to get at the pie counter besides
the political trust, and there will be thousands
of Remtblicans as well as Labor party men
that will vote the Democratic ticket.
..We are against the people who made money
out of the late war. We are against the party
that Is- dominated by the bosses. We., have
'heard a ¦¦ great'.deal about "old bills," those
.with long -whiskers <on, but. I want to tell, you
.right now that this t'old Bill" will be there all
the time. ,
And we of California have an especial and
particular Interest in the continuance of the
prosperity' which; under Republican rule, this
nation now enjoys. Situated as we are on
the "western verge of the American continent,
with the mighty Pacific as the great highway
that will bear to us the trade and commerce
of the millions living on its further shores.
California must prosper more than any other
State from the trade which is just^now begin
ning to' flow, to- us from far Cathay. -. "West
ward, the course of empire, takes- its way."
There never was a truer prophecy made. •¦ Time

While Franklin K. Lane may not be elected,

voted for a man who deserves to be; a man
who will stand for the Interests of the Repub
licans, Democrats and laboring men alike.
Chairman Foote presented Mr. Lane,
who was cheered. He said:
It may be a singular thing for me to say,
but I feel a bit more confident of success than
my distinguished friend. W. W. Foote. I have
been talking to the working men and they
have given me cause to believe that I shall be
elected. To-day I went to the West Oakland
yards, where >. you can-Stneet -tha -typical work
ingman at all tiroes. Standing on a barrel, an
empty barrel, the only kind we have in this
campaign, I talked to two or three hundred
men. They were all confident of success.
A few days ago I was in Sacramento. The
sporting men of that place are wagerlny that
Lane will be the next Governor of Calif ornia.

thousands of Republicans and men of all par
ties. :¦-.¦,..¦ ¦ • . . •' ' .¦

power of trade and riches went to Lisbon, ! and
then to Amsterdam. .Then London became the
world's great financial center. "Westward the
course of empire takes its way."' And already
cur own New York begins to be the world-power
and the arbiter of commerce and -finance. -But
California's greatness cannot long be put off;
and before many years, the , Golden Gate will
let in and out a greater commerce and a great
er trade to and from the swarming millions
of the farther East ' than now spreads Its
myriads of white eails upon the broad Atlan
tic. The products of our mines., our hills and
fields must find an outlet and a market. That
nation, lik« that individual, which has no mar
ket beyond its borders for its products; cannot
prosper.' To make our producers' • and our
manufacturers prosperous we must have a mar
ket for our products. And where can Califor
nia hope to find a better market for the things
she has to sell than among the swarming mil
lions on the other side of the great ocean whose
white-topped breakers thunder at our ' very
doors? • The time will come (and it Is. not many
years In the future) when California will have
within her borders ten million happy people,
prosperous- from' the products of ¦ her ¦ soil and
her manufactures, filling the fleets of- ships
with the many things she has to sell, '-and re
ceiving > In return the many; things she ! must
expect from other hands. But, if the Republic
can protective tariff be taken off by- our Demo
cratic friends and all our struggling Industries
be put at the mercy of foreign nations, what
can California hope to gain in the struggle for
the markets of the world? .
There never was a time /when California
needed more the fostering: care of the Re-r
publican party than she does to-day, when the
eyes of all the world are turned toward her.
when she is, for the first time her history,
confronting great things and when she has
within her grasp the mighty promises ¦ of - a
magnificent future. And yet our Democratic
friends still turn to free' trade and a "tariff.
Cor revenue," and tell us that it, will make no
difference to us if California, should : turn its
back on Roosevelt and the • Republican party.
How would ¦ you,- my . friends of Santa Clara, •
eel if the tariff on - your apricots and -prunes
were stricken off by , the Democratic ' party in !

OAKLAND, Sept 20.— Franklin K.
Lane, the Democratic nominee
for Governor,, made an incursion
into the camp of the enemy to-
day, invading the home of George
C. Pardee, his rival, and- withal receiving
a cordial welcome from the moderate
sized audiences that he addressed, one
at the railroad yards this afternoon and
a larger gathering this evening at the
.exposition building. After that Mr. Lane
went to Haywards and enjoyed the last
night of the carnival.
Mr. Lane arrived , shortly after noon.
He: was accompanied ¦ by Samuel Butler,
president of the Miners' .- Union of Grass
Valley, and R. H. Norton, • a member- of
the American Federation of Labor.' Es
corted by John J. McDonald, chairman of
the Alameda County Democratic Central
Committee, the gubernatorial aspirant
and his companions repaired to the cor
ner of First and Pine streets', at the edge
of the Southern Pacific Company's yards,
where a temporary platform was erected,
from which Mr. Lane and others made
short speeches to the hundred
railroad workmen gathered about the im
provised rostrum. ¦ >
BUTLEB INDORSES LANE.
Chairman McDonald introduced the
speakers. lie first presented R. H. Nor
ton of Los Angeles, who is a- civil en
gineer. Mr. Norton declared it to be the
duty of every laboring man to support
the Democratic candidate, who, he said,
if elected to the ornce of Governor would
ueal fairly with the plain people.
Samuel Butler, .president of the Miners'
Union of Grass Valley, upon being Intro
duced declared that if labor would -ac
complish anything it must unite its forces
and vote, for the man who would give it
l>i election against the wealthy classes in
case a conflict should arise. \
"None of you here fail to understand
who your champion is," he said. "He- Is
Franklin K. Lane." . .
The last speaker was Lane, who was
warmly applauded. He said: r
LANE BEGINS SPEECH.
This is the first time I have appeared', In
this way before an Oakland audience, but.lt
has been my custom In all my. campaigning
In San Francisco to meet the worklngmen; at
the noon hour. X believe I was the first can
didate to visit the tollers of San Francisco re
turning from their lunches for the afternoon 1 *
work. I realize that noon Is almost the only
time that a workman has to listen to cam
paign speeches, for when he gets home at night
from his employment he is usually too tired
to do anything else than go to bed and pre
pare for the next day's toll. So I have been
calling upon the men at their shops, where I
could meet them face to face, and look them
straight In the eye, and show them what kind
of a man they are to vot« for at the next
election. I don't believe a. man should simply
tend out a lot of picture cards _and literature
and let the voter and laboring -man guess at
the kind ' of man who asks for his suffrages.
It is his duty to show himself, Just as much
as It is the f.uty of the voter to acquaint hlm-
Bclf.with the character of tha candidate who
is seekincr his vote. . '-.;•:
Four years ago I went to- the Union- Iron
Works and got the promise of the men there
to vote for me, which they did.- After Ifww
elected I went back there, as I did to every
other place where I had- previously speken to
the men, and thanked them personally for their
support. And when they saw me and knew
my purpose they said: '"Mr. Lane." there have
been other candidates who have come to us
before election.- but you are the first one that
has ever come to us after election."

I make no promises that I can't fulfill. And
when I have been elected to- the of flee of Gov
ernor, which 1 hope and trust 1 will bo, I pro
pose to make of it an office where the work

wage In the shops and factories, will be re
ceived on an equality with the man of wealth
and power. I propose to make It a point to
listen to the stories of all classes of citizens.

With bonfires and brass band the rally
at the Exposition building was enlivened
this evening. The attendance was not
large. A thin fringe of auditors occupied
the gallery, the main floor being sparsely
filled. Behind the speakers' platform, was

But Lane was given a hearfy cheer and
the audience was -warm in its response
to the speaker's hits. Chairman McDon

Word comes from the south that the Re

enthusiastic in support of the ticket. la

later McKinley carried the county by a
majority of 1123. • ' ' ; . _ '
On Saturday evening, September 27, Dr.
Pardee will address the citizens of Lo»

the chief city of the south was postponed;
one week on account of -the sickness of

All aigna point to- an immense majority
in Los Angeles for~the Republican ticket.
Alameda Republicans are quite confi

banner which was won from Los Angelea
in 1898 and lost to San Francisco in 1300.
The banner may leave San Francisco, but
Los Angeles, with Its vast legion of pro

was a Republican and had been one for
twenty years, but the retreat of the-Cali

took for silver after the national conven

champions of the people and urged all
to vote for them. . With his' address the

I am a young man. I. have my Ideals and am
bltlons. I want posterity to point to my ad-,

The worklngmen believe in me. They have
twice put. me into office by one -of the largest
majorities -a man ever received In San Fran

was that I kept my promises. When I told tha
men of the Union .Iron Works to watch my ac

for further favors I asked them to scan my
record- and see If I was worthy of being re
turned. I : They showed their- confidence . by re
turning me by 12.000 majority. ! I have always
made my promises • good and that is why tha
people of California are going to give ma a
chancn during the next * four years to maka
good my promises during this campaign.
The Democrats platform stands for the up
building of, the State. We need many reforms.
We are. losing opportunities. The State Is cry

great industries which -need to be stimulated.
We promise to give the people- what they ask.

needed in this State. He talked of prosperity.
It was his only song. It Is what all. the

reason, applying locally, why you should vote
for a Republican In preference to a Demo

- It is a strange thing this prosperity. Toe
campaign orator tells you that It is due. to
the high protective tariff, yet according to
Speaker Henderson ! this very protection, the
source of all the prosperity, la threatened most
by the Republican party itself The trusts
themselves endanger this prosperity. President
Roosevelt is a brave and a fearless man. That
is my personal opinion of him. (Applause.)

The motion having prevailed, R. M.
Fitzgerald nominated ex-Governor Budd
for the postion. The latter declined X\i&
honor on the ground that he could not de
vote sufficient time to his duties. He sug
gested that A. Carninetti of Amador
County was the man fcr the place. He
caid that the ex-Congressman was the
hardest worker in the State and if he
could be prevailed upon to accept the
chairmanship he would prove invaluable.
He said that Caminetti would be accept
able to the candidate for Governor and to
Mr. Sims suggested that Caminetti
might not take the position. He there
fore suggested that Governor Budd act as
temporary chairman until word was re
ceived from Caminetti. This was agree
able all around. Upon motion the chair
man was empowered to appoint a commit
tee of five to be known as the campaign
committee. Thi3 committee will be com
posed of four members of the State Cen
tral Committee and the chairman of the
campaign committee. . It will have the
powers that the executive committee en

from the main body.
An adjournment was taken to the call
of the chair.
M. F. Cochrane moved that the resig
nation be accepted and it was so ordered.
Upon, motion of James H. O'Brien John J.

Ex-Governor Budd then announced that
the next business of the meeting was the
election of a chairman of the executive
committee and the appointment of a cam
paign committee. Cochrane ' thought It
best to wait until Mr. Murphy returned
and he would then appoint the chairman.
Mr. Budd and others opposed this on the
ground that the time was too short and it
was absolutely necessary that the cam
paign committee begin its work. Coch
rane saw it that way and made a motion
that the committee proceed to elect a

I have also, lor the reasons above stated, to
day forwarded to Hon. James K. Jones, chair
man of the Democratic National Committee,
my resignation as a member" of that body.
As rr.y personal affairs now claim my full
and undivided attention and I am unable to
give to political details the time and attention
the position of a committeeman demands, I am
constrained to respectfully tender my resig
nation as a. member of the Democratic State
Central Committee, to take effect at once.

Upon motion of J. C. Sims, ex-Governor
Budd was elected temporary chairman.
After roll call the chairman called upon
the secretary to hand him M. F. Tarpey's
letter of resignation, which, he read. It

When the committee had finished its
work a meeting of the executive commit
tee was called to order by ex-Governor
Budd in the absence of Barney D. Mur
phy. Some one said Mr. Murphy was out
in "the highways and byways" making
speeches and would return in a few days.
Of the thirty-five members of the com
mittee thirteen were present. When the
roll was called the following answered to
the purpose of discussing finances
and transacting other business. The man
ner in which the sinews of war are to
be raised was discussed in private. The
discussion was long and fervid. Ex-Gov
ernor James H. Budd is not a member of
the finance committee, but he informed
the committee that he would help the
cause with his i dollars. He did this in
the hope that other members of the com
mittee would follow his example, or better
still, form themselves into committees of
one and induce wealthy Bourbons to con
tribute to the fund.
