THE NEW BOARD.
The old Board of Supervisors met on Monday morning
last and finished the business devolving upon it by noon. In
the afternoon the members of the new Board proceeded to or
ganize by electing Fred B. LeMoin as chairman. The new
members of the Board,' Newman, Moore and Amick, soon got
into working condition and the business preceeded without
any friction. Dr. A. M. Gall was elected county physician,
vice Dr. Simmons resigned. appointment is an excell
ent one and gives general satisfaction. For Steward ol the
County Hospital, there were several applicants, but the per
simmon went to Mr. Arthur Barrett of Pine Grove, and the
appointment is considered a good one. Mr. Barrett stands
high in the community in which he lives, and will no doubt
administer the affairs of the hospital economically and with
ability. As the proceedings appear elsewhere in this paper
we will not particularize. The Ledger congratulates the
new Board on the appointments made and the strictlj' busi
ness style of its first^ meeting. It also tha.nks each member
thereof for^ the unanimous vote that made this paper the of
ficial organ of the Board.
-From an article in yesterday's "Examiner," entitled
"Primary Bills to be Presented," we take the following ex
... " The primary elections bills most discussed so far are
the measure to be introduced by Senator Davis and the meas
ure to be introduced by Assemblyman Johnson. * * *
- "The Davis bill is commonly regarded as standing the
best chance of becoming law, It has several features not
found in other bills. The test provision, after several changes
and revisions, now reads as follows:
'The voter must be asked by the ballot clerk and must
state the name of the party whose ticket he desires to vote.
The ballot clerk shall then as a party test ask him this ques
tion and none other: "Do you indorse the principles of the
party you have named, according to the most recent declara
tion of its principles by the highest authority in that party?"
Upon receiving an affirmative answer thereto and not other
wise he shall be furnished the official ballot of that party and
permitted to vote thereon ; and he shall not be permitted to
vote any other party ballot at that election." * * ■ *
"The bill prescribes one form of official ballot for all
parties, those of the different parties to be distinguished from
each other by the party name printed on a slip projecting be
yond the top of the ballot, so as to be seen when the ballot is
folded. This prevents any possibility of the voter or any
election officer substituting another ballot for that furnished
on which to vote after taking the test, and is important in en
abling the ballots to be separated into lots to be counted, after
the polls are closed, without unfolding them. * * *
"The constitutional amendments under which the Davis
bill is projected allows the Legislature to declare the popula
tion of counties and cities arbitrarily and conclusively, so that
any small county or city desiring to get the immediate bene
fit of the bill has only to have its name inserted in the bill as
containing the requisite population. "
WORKING TO SAVE THE FORESTS.
The California Club, a local organization of women, has
broadened the crusade which it began for the preservation of
the Calaveras grove in the interest of the general reservation
of the ; forest lands on the public domain, and its president,
Mrs. Lovell White, is gathering statistics relating to the cost
of caring for and renewing forest lands in other countries as
a basis on which action may be taken here. To this club is
due the credit for the initiative taken for the saving of the
sequoias. One of its members, Mrs. A. D. Sharon, made a
special trip to Washington, D. C, last year for that purpose.
The club has since been in direct correspondence with mem
bers of. both houses of Congress to enlist their support to any
reasonable measure that will save the sequoias from destruc
tion. Pledges of support have been received from each mem
ber'of the California delegation.
Resolutions which have originated in the club will be in
troduced in the the State Legislature during the present ses
sion by Senator John F. Davis of Amador and Assemblyman
H. W. Brown of San Mateo, urging Congress to act expedi
tiously on the bill pending before it providing for the transfer
of the Yosemite National Park. These joint resolutions will
be backed, it is representated, by the indorsement of at least
100,000 citizens, whose signatures have been obtained by the
members of the club. The efforts of these energetic women
are sure to receive the approval of the public generally. — S.

THE COURAGE OF HIS CONVICTIONS.
Fred L- Stewart, assemblyman from this district, has
demonstrated that he has backbone. He was one of Ander-
sou's adherents, first last and all the time. Mr. Stewart be
lieved Anderson's election as Speaker of the House would be

THE AMADOR LEDGER; JACKSON, CAIiIFORyiA, FRIUa.Y. JAKUABY 11, 1901.
A Vivid Account of the Trip of a Puien
ger Train on Hew Year'i-
The following account of the trip of
a passenger train through the recent
storm In northern California was writ
ten for the Ledger by one of the pass
"The snow had begun In the gloaming.
And busily all the night
Had been heaping field and highway
With a silence deep and white."
The "beautiful snow" began to fall
as we crossed the line which marks the
northern boundary of California, and
everything indicated a big storm on
New Year's night.
Train 16, southbound, left Ashland,
Oregon, on the afternoon of Jan. 2d,
headed by four powerful engines and
followed by a fifth. The snow became
deeper and deeper as we ascended the
heavy grade of the Siskiyou mountains,
but the snow plow was ahead, and, with
Its long line of puffing engines, was cut
ting a wide swath in the light snow.
At the summit the tops of fence posts
were just visible, "and still fluttered
down the snow."
There was something strangely quiet
about everything. The usual roar of
the train was deadened so that one
could easily imagine he was being drawn
over the snow in a sleigh. It was down
grade from the summit to Ager. Cali
fornia, so we slid along and enjoyed tho
beautiful Alpine scenery, which was
constantly shifted into moro beautiful
variations than we would attempt to
describe. We could look at times down
into gorges of wonderful depth, lined
with trees— each decorated after its own
particular fashion. We passed over
several high trestles, which were under
hung with magnificent icicles; and
through deepcuts where the industrious
plow had cut a space just large enough
to allow us to pass through, the snow
being piled high above the coaches on
each side. ; .
We reached Agers at 6 o'clock in the
evening, and there we stayed until four
teen hours of the new year had passed
by, waiting for our only hope of deliv
erance, — the snow plow — to get in its
work. At 8 o'clock on Thursday morn
ing we had not resumed. our journey.
As we were due in San Francisco at 8:45
a. m., according to schedule, it was
time for some of us to begin to get a
trifle impatient. The railroad in its
great wisdom follows the rule, "Where
ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wisei "
and gravely informs each anxious in
quirer that "We'll start in about an
hour," which is true, for they set us no
time for the hour to begin. It is a par
allel case with the man who leeves the
card, "Back in ten minutes," in his of
fice window. So we wait on, and on,
and on, starting up at each whistle
blast, anxiously following the move
ments of all train men, and trying to
catch the meaning of their conversa
tion. But after awhile the track was
reported clear, and we started on. The'
summit of Shasta mountains was safely
passed and we proceeded on the down
grade to Dunsmulr. It is on this grade
that we see the . most beautiful of all
Nature's handiwork combined with the
masterful engineering feats of man. As
wo approach the upper crossing of the
Sacramento river we are traveling in a
northerly direction, while directly be
low only a few hundred feet we see the
snow plow forcing its way through the
unbroken crust in the opposite direc
tion. The road here makes a complete
"U," going up the east bank and com
ing down the west bank of the river.
Bight behind us is train 11, which is
closely followed by train 15, which is
regularly 24 hours behind us. So we
are 24 hours late at Dunsmuir.
Here we learn that a rotary plow is
ahead, facing a stock train, which is
unable to move forward or backward;
as we know that snow plows do not run
backward, we settle down for the night.
The passengers who are fortunate
enough to havo a berth in the sleeper
are comfortable enough, but those who
must lie curled up on a seat and can
sleep only until awakened by a cramp
in the neck, are to be pitied. Also the
patient mother with two or three tired
babies to look after. Then there are
many who made no provision for a long
trip, either in food or money, and are
compelled to resort to the charity of
the railroad company for the bare
necessities of life.
So the hours pass by. Morning finds
us still at Dunsmulr. Everyone is
straining his ears for the whistle of the
rotary plow which must come up before
we can move. The wires are down on
both sides, so the railroad officials are
no wiser than we, and for once their "I
don't know" is true. All day long, un
til late in the afternoon we wait as pa
tiently as we can. Occasionally the
monotony is broken by a snow fight
among the passengers, and the spirits
of all are temporarily re vlved;but there
is an end to everything, and no one was
sorry when the great rotary plow
steamed in and we heard two blasts
from our engine's whistle.
Tho weather became clearer as we
wound around the curves of the Sacra
mento river, and tho full moon broke
through the clouds and gave us a moon
light scene such as one does not often
We were stopped twice by snow slides
before reaching Redding. Soon after
entering the Sacramento valley the
snow had entirely vanished and wo pro
ceeded on to the Golden Gate, where
we arrived two days and three hours
late, but with an experience new to
some of us, yet not without its pleasure
if one can find delight in viewing the
most wonderful of Nature's work.

The fight for the Speakershlp of the
Assembly was soon over Monday
morning when the members went Into
caucus. Organization was perfected by
a victory for the Pendleton forces, Kel
ley of Oakland being elected chairman,
and Schilling of Yuba, secretary.
She vote for Speaker resulted in 17
for Anderson and 38 for Pendleton. It
was as follows:
For Pendleton — Roberts, McNeil,
Gans, Irish, Collins, Schilling, Ruther
ford, Cromwell, Webber, Johnson,
Greor, Ralrton, Franklin, Hourigan,
Evatt, Butler, Knight, Tread well, Guil
foyle, Fiske, Bauer,' Henry, Brady,
Brown, Kelley, Me Wade, Ray, Myers,
John, Merrltt, Boughton, Savags, .Car
tor, Hasson, Milice, Bennink, Barnes,
and Stewart. • • .•• '
For Anderson — Anderson of Santa
Clara, Berry, Duryea, Stewart, Ather
ton, Dunlap, Mattos, Knowlan, . Bliss,
Foster, Brown, Radcliff, Walker, Hig
by, Chandler, Clark and Melick
Absent— Hancn and Macbeth. ;
Not voting— Anderson of Suisun, and
Pendleton. ~/ir V
• Anderson's name was placed before
the caucus by Dunlap of San Joaquin,
while Bennink of Los Angeles perform
ed the same office for Pendleton.
'Ralston of Calaveras was named for
Speaker pro tern.
Anderson did not attend the Repub
lican caucus and Pendleton refrained
from voting on the choice for Speaker,
but later on, when the Assembly was in
session and the votes for the Los Ari
gelos man assured him the seat, he an
swered the roll call by voting for An
derson. ■' .
The San Francisco delegation threw
themselves as a body into Lloyd's fight
for chiet clerk, regardless of geograph
ical objections, and the Santa Barbara
main, therefore, sailed Into office with
thirty-four votes, twice the number re
ceived by Oliver of Berkeley, his most
dangerous opponent. ■ •••: -.ri •
. Patronage was divided by the caucus
on a pro rata of $8 to each member of
the Assembly. The political turkey
was carved by a committee composed
of Melick (chairman), McWade, Schill
ing,' Broughton and Fisk. Grove L.
Johnson, who was urged to accept a
place on the turkey-slicing committee,
refused the responsibility.
At noon the* thirty-fourth session of
the Legislature of the State of Califor
nia was called to order, both houses
meeting at the same hour. Major Kyle,
Chief Clerk of the last session, called
the Assembly to order! Prayer was
offered by Dr. George Allen. .- > .:
When he concluded Grove L. John
son introduced the usual resolution that
the members be sworn in according to
roll presented by the Secretary' of
State. The members were sworn in
ten at a time by Superior Judge
Hughes of Sacramento. .
Clerk Kyle announced the following
W. O. Banks, Sergeant-at-Arms;
Daniel McPortland, Assistant Sergeant
at-Arms; Jules Vorsiget, Postmaster;
J. J. Hall, J. Hosking and H. H.
Squires, gatekeepers; and Emmet
Rhodes, R. M. Rodgers and Ralph
After the members had been sworn
in nominations for Speaker were de
clared in order. Pendleton was placed
in nomination by Broughton of Po
mona, and was elected Speaker by
every Republican vot* save his own
which he cast for Anderson. ,W. C.
Ralston of Calaveras was elected
Speaker pro tern.
In the Senate, which was called to
ordor by Lieutenant Governor Noff,
for the first time in the history of the
State the Democratic minority voted
for the Republican organization. The
Senato slate, Thomas Flint Jr., Presi
dent pro tern, Lou Martin, Sergeant-at-
Arms, and Frank Brandon, secretary,
went through unanimously, the Demo
cratic members voting with the Repub
licans. W. C. Evans of Stockton was
elected chaplain. Senator Davis will
be chairman of the Judiciary and Tay
lor of the Finance Committee.
By reference to our clubbing rates our read
ers will see that we furnish McCall's Maga
zine, an especial favorite with the ladies, and
