ls-3, 1884, 1885, ISS6 and 1887, relating to the issu

A. B. 24 was here received. -
Mr. ''Las-jock introduced the following : ,-. ■ "
To amend Section 1173 of the Penal Code, relat
ing to exceptions taken by defendants in criminal
cases. Judiciary,
S. B. 178, to amend Section 1857 of the Political
Code, relating to public schools (by Mr. Sears), was
taken up.
Mr. Johnson moved that it be referred to the
Committee on Education. He said that he thought
that this bill would take $200,000 per annum. The
Legislature last winter had amended Section 1857 of
the school law, forbidding any Tax Collector or As
sessor to retain any portion of school taxes which
should be collected by him. This was now the law
of the State. They were still allowed to retain I.*.
per cent, for collecting poll taxes. The speaker
thought that Mr. Scars' bill, by permitting Tax Col
lectors and Assessors to keep 15 per cent, of school
moneys, would keep a large amount of money cut
of the state Treasury.
Mr. Ky.in said that the collection of poll taxes
was a very difficult thing, and the only motive in
collecting was the compensation, and if that motive
were to be removed, poll tuxes in many instances
would not be collected. The question was whether
the loss would not be greater to the school fund if
the Collectors were not allowed the 15 per cent.,
which the bill provided He was not satisfied on
that question, but was inclined to believe that the
bill would favor, rather than injure, the school fund.
He hoped tbat it would be engrossed.
Mr. Hittkll quoted from ths law on tho subject.
He favored the passage of the bill, and thought that
if it was net passed a large portion of the school
fund would be lost.
Mr. Sears agreed with Mr. Hittell, who bad very
properly, he thought, explained the operations and
provisions of bis bill, and had read the section in
which it gave Assessors 15 per cent, for poll taxes
collected, and he thought over}' Senator would bear
him out in the saying that, unless Assessors were
allowed that permission, or percentage in the col
lection of poll taxes, the poll tax receipts would fall
off very materially. Instead if ibis bill taking
3200,000 out of the school fund it would
probably put I that amount into the school
fund, for if they struck the 15 per
cent, from the collection of the poll taxes, not ovsr
three quarters of tho poll taxes In the State would
bo collected which were now collected : therefore
it would reduce the amount of the school fund that
much. The law which they had parsed last winter,
as Mr. Hittell hail well suggeiteO, was intended to
cover the common school taxes and the State school
tax, and was not intended to affect the pill tax,
and the operation of this bill was simply to harmon
ize what he assumed to be the conflicting portions
of these two sections ; that was all.
Mr. Johnson withdrew his motion to refer to the
Committee on Education, and the bill was ordered
engrossed.
Mr. Wk-tdell moved that the Senate adjourn.
Lost.
Mr. Zuck en led up the motion he had made yes

extending the time for the third reading of bills
from 2 to 4 i. si., was adopted.
KS. B. 153, to amend an Act entitled an Act to ap
propriate money for the support of orphans, half
orphans an.', abandoned children, approved March

The following Assembly joint resolution by Mr
Del Valle was read arid referred to the Committee
on Federal Relations :
Whereas, by an Act of Congress, approved July 1,
1870, the United States cuter, d into a lease with a
private corporation, known as the Alaska Commer
cial Company, whereby the Alaska Islands of St.
Paul and St. George were leased to said corporation
for a period of twenty years, with the exclusive
privilege of killing seals and other fur-bearing ani
mals, at a nominal annuity of $55,000, together
with $2 per head for each seal killed ; and whereas,
the Sec eUry of the Treasury, Hon. George S.
Boutwcll, in his report of February 8, 1870,
uses the following language concerning the pro
posed lease of those valuable fur producing
islands, viz: "The Government of the United States
having accepted the sovereignty of the country, is
bound to protect the people in the enjoyment of
their only means of subsistence, a suggestion has
neen made to this deportment in various forms that
the Government should lease these islands for a long
period of time to a company or firm. * * *
This plan is open to the very grave objection that it
makes a monopoly of a branch of industry, impor
tant, not only to the people of the islands, but to
the people of the United States if the preparation
and manufacture of the skins for use
should be transferred from London to this
country. Such a monopoly is contrary to the idea
of the people ;" and whereas, said lease seems from
its hist ry to have been conceived with the antici
pated idea of class and special legislation, and en
tered into specifically with said company at. afar
less sum than that offered by many other equally
as responsible and capable bidders ; and whereas,
the people of the United States have been cursed
and down-trodden by the tyrannical encroachment
and exactions of monopolies in every form, till tl cv
are rapidly losing their identity as the sovereigns of
the soil ; and whereas, Section Bof the Act of Con
gress, approved July 1, 1870, entitled "An Act to
prevent the exte rmination of fur-bearing animals in
Alaska," and by which Act the above-named lease
was entered into, reads as follows : " Section 8. And
be it further enacted that Congress may at any time
hereafter alter, amend or repeal this Act." Row
therefore, in consideration of the foregoing ami
other facts, be it
Resolved by the Assembly of the State of Califor
nia, the Senate thereof concurring. That our Repre
sentatives in Congress and our Senators be in
structed to use every effort to have repealed said
Act of July 1, 1870, above entitled, and to have an
nulled said contract, to the end that the industries
of said islands of St. Paul and St. George and the
entire Territory of Alaska may be thrown open to
the competition of all American citizens, subject to
such equitable laws and regulations as Congress
may enact.
Resolved, That* his Excellency, the Governor of
this Slate, is hereby requested to immediately for
ward a copy of these preambles ami resolutions to
the President of the United States, the Secretary of
the Treasury, and one each to our Senators and
Representatives in Cengress. ;

bills which were before thvm.
: Mr. Edwards then aroseand said: Mr. Speaker
I hope the House will noi adjourn, and my
reasons for doing so are the same as given by
Mr. I/>ng, from Nevada. If I it *i ember the his
tory of some propositions that this Legislature last
tear voted upon, there were about ten or twelve
i members favoring the propositions, aid when they
, returned there were about forty-one facoring them,
and the propositions, as voted upon and acted
upon, are very much to the interest of a great many
people of this State, as they are considered. 1 hope
th« motion will not pass. If this House slmuld ad
journ, you cannot get a quorum of the J jdiciary, or
any other committee. It is fooling away tiie here.
I hope we will do the work like men.
The motion was aimed— ayes 27, noes 17— and
the House adjourned.
S-nPLOIHF.VT OF fHINFrE.
On Friday, the 21st instant, the Assembly having
under consideration Mr. Jackson's A. B. HO, 7, to
prohibit the Slate from entering into any contracts
with Chinese, Mr. Jackson arose and said :
Mr. Speaker : l did not intend to take up modi
of the tim« of this House ; but I would be false to
those who peat me here, those who like myself are
obliged to earn their bread by the sweat* of their
brow, if I remained silent after the remarks of thu
gentleman from San Diego.
In the course of his remarks he asserted that this
bill was the result of the malady calltd 'Kearny
ism,'' which caused the insertion of Article 10 in
our present Co stitution. lam Willi to admit
that fact, tut, sir, there is a malady rre vailing at
present of which the honorable gentleman is a
victim, more dangerous to the lives of the people
than that was, that is known as the " Fatherhood
of God and Brotherhood of Man ;" the symptoms
are that when a man finds himself so List to all the
noble instincts which go to make the true i> an, and
finding himself despised by all true men, he seeks
arourd for some of the "brute creation" which
happens to stand on two legs and seeks to drar his
fellow man down to their b. vol, so that at bat ho can
fay there is something I nm the equal of. .
1 have listened to the United States laws read by
the gentleman, and I fail to find thing t ere that
prohibits us in saying how the public money should
be spent, uU that, sir, is the nature < i" this bill,
and, sir, I have yet to hear of My objecti-ns by the
people to bills of this kind, and 1 am glad that he
took the Republican stand of equality of &11.
■ Then, again, the decision be reads, without
claiming to be a lawyer, I clam are not applicable
to this subject, for, if so, the Debris Act. and the
letting of contracts for brick on the New City Hall
would be illegal. Then, again, he siys .l.at the
Constitution if the United States gives everyone
the right to the pursuit of life, liberty :.- 1) pr pcrty,
and no State can deprive them of it ; but yet I find
tbat at time.- 1 it is necessary .ole able to vote, in
order to fully protect one's property ; and yet the
States of New Hampshire and Rhode Island bavo
laws which prohibit certain people from that right,
for lack of religious or property nullification
And then, as a last appeal to his party *-c reminds
them tliat the battle-cry of the party is progress and
equality toall. To show how inconsistent he is on
that subject, as on every other, his vote and bis
parly's vote on my motion to allow a worn to be
Postmistress of this House was to a man .gainst it,
while our side voted for her.
I say, sir, would it not be better to try to provide
means by which our sisters could obtain an honor
able means of living than to try to drag them down
to the level of his pets, the Chinese ? And I my, sir.
the people will not be content un il we do pass a
bill of tils kind, and the efore I hope it will pats.
