If there Is any virtue, reason or pur pose in party organization whatever, the residence is found in the power of the majority. "Without that the party Us a mere loose handle of twigs, with out coherence, adhesive power, execu tive vigor or organized capacity. In short, it becomes a mere contention corral in which factions may fight it out as terriers do in the dog pit, with out regard to the principles of the party, but according to the skill-of the handlers of the animals. That there may be executive power, that there shall be regard for the dem ocratic or majority principle of free government, the party coun cil or caucus was established. In one form if is a primary, in another it is a convention, In still another it is the caucus. Human ex perience ever since party has existed has justified this machinery; In fact, every man with political wisdom enough In his skull box to pilot him across an alley knows that without party consultation and party rule by majority there can be no effectiveness In party organization. The demand of the people In the Re publican party, therefore, voiced through a free press and emphasized by the open expressions of leading party men that this discreditable deadlock shall be broken by the call of the party men into open caucus, there to ascer tain the will of the majority, Is one thart' must be heeded. To fail to dc so means disruption of the party. If it Is by action here and now established that factions within the party may defy the party laws, then, of conree, party organization becomes aneff«?ctive and the whole structure will fall to pieces. It is, therefore, now the pimfple question whether the Republi can party by the proxy of its repre sentatives in the Legislature Is going to commit suicide. But, say the opponents to caucus council and an open vote, "If we go into the council,- such an one, or such another one, may be chosen and our pet candidate may be defeated." In nil honesty, gentlemen, that is the meat of the question. Assuredly the major ity will and should name the party can didate. And just as surely some one will be selected and some others de feated, and these may or may not be your special choice. Any other view of the question is im possible, except from the factional standpoint. If the party men are to form in knots and there remain, there will be no Senator chosen, and we re peat if that is the outcome, if California is deprived of her lawful right by such procedure, some one will be called to account, and punishment will as surely follow the violation of the party law as penalties flow from infraction of natural laws. It will not be delivered by the hands of personal Influences, by associated in terests, or corporate strength. It will come from the mass of the men of the Republican party who in their indigna tion will spare not, nor should they. It will come likewise from the body of the outraged voters of the State, irrespec tive of party, who have a right to be represented by a full delegation in the United States Senate, and who will re- Bent any scheme and refuse to listen to any excuses for depriving the State of its Just power In the chief legislative body of the nation. A MISTAKEN MOVEMENT. . The proposed repeal of the law re quiring a bond in libel cases to secure the defendant against cost is unwise, because there has been after nearly thirty years of trial no evidence that It has worked a hardship or done a wrong to any one. It is now a protec tion to a free press and to free speech, In that it requires sincerity in prosecu * tion. Repeal it, and there will be a door opened, as there was prior to the enactment of the law, for all manner cf blackmailing, extorting and annoy ing threats of prosecution. Every shy ster hanging about the fringe of the Police Court can promote opportunity to begin actions, or threaten to com mence them, on contingent fees with the sole hope and expectation that the contemplated defendant will settle rather than litigate. Connecticut has just stiffened her libel law requiring bonds, but here is California, a younger State, threatening to repeal the same line of laws. Th«r Act of 1872 was the result of experience without the law. It has been tried therefore for nearly thirty years and has proved a success «. in promoting the principle of the max im that the law abhors litigation and will not promote it. THE FUNDED DEBT COMMISSION. The Funded Debt Commission ques tion that has so long been a source of annoying friction in this community, is now happily out of the way, and on that line we can all exclaim with hearty accord "let us have peace." This is said upon the assumption that the bill settling the dispute will go speedily through the two houses of the Legisla ture, and not find burial in the over loaded calendars. No one has been disposed to deny the usefulness of the commission nor the disinterested labors which have been given to It by the many citizens who have served upon it for the city's good. At the same time it has been a freely criticised body and its judgment has been frequently arraigned as' unwise. But it assuredly has accomplished for the city in the past a very large meas ure of good, though some of its policies have been unwise. We are now so nearly free from debt and the commieison is,so near the end of its life that assuredly there is cause for mutual congratulation among the people and for free accord to the com mission of all credit which its twenty seven years of labor entitle it. The past is now all behind us and the future opens very bright and promising for Sacramento. What we now need Is energy in offi cial boards, manifestation still more of public spirit among the people, and re newal of pledges to improve every op portunity to put Sacramento by such improvements as her several municipal systems need upon a new highway of municipal excellence, which must lead, not to a boom —heaven forbid —but to augmented substantial prosperity and enlarged importance among the cities of the State. As the outgoing Presi ent of the Chamber of Commerce said, we need a good many things and are in a fair way to get them very speedily, but first and foremost the most press ing of all demanded benefactions is the betterment of the source of water sup ply. After that all other good things will follow. THE HUMANE SOCIETY BILLS It must not be understood that there are two Societies in San Francisco for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. There is but one there; under the law there can be but one in any county. It was wise to so provide. The San Francisco society was the first and original one, and has a proud history dating back more than a third of a cen tury. All the more thickly populated counties now have societies of the same order. Bills are before the Legislature affecting all these societies. Two of them were aimed at their crippling, and have been very properly laid upon the shelf. One of them went to the extent of permitting several societies In a county. One remains, which em anates from the country societies, and is approved by the parent association in San Francisco. It provides for a very few necessary changes in the old law, and has one new provision, authorizing county offi cial bodies, if so minded, to aid these societies by contribution to their funds to a certain limit. No special opposi tion to this has been made; several counties already contribute by furnish ing the societies with special officers and salarying them. But the Senate committee having the bill in charge ad vises the Legislature to cut the life out of the Assembly bill by striking out the provision giving fines and forfeit ures to the societies. It is advised, therefore, that this little income shall be transferred to the school fund. This will be unwise and cruel. There has been no demand for It. It takes the sceietles by surprise. Instead of aiding them it will cut off a part of their narrow revenue. Their members pay dues, and they collect some few dollars from the fine and forfeiture source. In need of a still large means to carry on their work, they beg the charitable to aid them, and have to resort often to benefits and entertain ments to raise necessary funds to do work that ought to be wholly performed by the State, but is not, for everywhere it has been found necessary to establish these societies, which make it their busir.ess to stand behind the law and secure its enforcement, as well as to cultivate a spirit of humanity among the people and to prevent cruelty, as they surely do. It will therefore be a direct blow at the usefulness of the societies to cut away from their officers one of the chief incentives to action, and dull the spirit which moves them to add to the revenues of their Besides, as we remarked the other day, the fines and penalties provision operates as a strong deterrent influence upon offend ers when the money penalties go to the societies to which isi committed the spe cial duty of enforcing obedience to the law. THE FREE PRESS. The Earl of Rosslyn, the famous scholar and statesman, once said in a speech in the House of Commons: "What would become of us without the press? Not to speak of the rational and elegant amusement which it affords, we owe to it all the spirit which remains in the nation. Were an imprimatur clapped upon it, and a licenser appoint ed, we should soon come to the last stage of barbarism. We should be worse than Turks and infidels. * * * Let us then guard the liberty of the press as watchfully as the dragon did the Hesperian fruit. Next to the privi leges of this House and the rights of Juries, it is the main prop of the con stitution." Yet the proposition then under debate was in no wise so gag ing, drastic or restraining as any one of the several measures before the Legelature of California to-day, intend ed to check license in the press, but which will operate to throttle free speech and punish the innocent. The bill to compel the signing in print of libelous articles in newspapers can do no possible good.. The responsible party In a newspaper i» always known. The proprietor or Managing Editor can always be reached if the paper offends. What can ft profit the people to know that a hired reporter named John Smith, in the discharge of his duty as an employe, signs an Item, which may be the ground work for a proceeding in libel. Personal journalism not one whit conserves public interest. Impersonal journalism implies and discloses a re sponsible proprietorship. It aids the plaintiff in libel proceedings. Nothing THE REOORP-ITNION, SACRAMENTO; FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1899. " of benefit to society will flow from a law requiring articles to be signed. The law would therefore be an annoyance to the press, and become a dead letter by reason of evasive tactics to escape It. This whole question of personal and impersonal journalism is threshed-over straw. It has been debated, tried and proved valueless. AN ASSAULT UPON HUMAN LIBERTY. The American colonists fought for a principle which involved the emanci pation of the press. After all these years there are found in California in fluences which would enter upon the beginning of the undoing of the work cemented by the blood of the fathers. The proposed legislation masking under the cover of "regulation" of newspa pers, involves shearing the press of the official means of giving information to the people concerning proposed changes in the organic law; the removal of the bond security in libel action; restric tion upon methods of expression, and certain unwise changes in the law Of libel. None of these are demanded by the people. Not one of them refers to any necessity involving State concern. Pub licity Is the most powerful of all cor rectives. Let all official proceedings be made freely public through the press, and there can be no serious or continued danger to public interests. Restraint of publicity is direct as sault upon human liberty, and pos itive conservation of venality. The whole line of anti-newspaper leg islation now pending is aimed at a vital principle of human freedom, whether its authors are conscious of it or not. Let the present proposed tres passes prevail, and the next steps will be lees difficult, and thus the breaking down of the safeguards of the people's rights will go on. If the pending legislation inimical to interests involving the basic principles of the Republic proceeds from personal motives, for satisfaction of revenges, or in the nature of reprisal, then it is all the more deplorable, and will be all the more disastrous In its effects. In this matter the entire press of the State is involved. There can be no dis tinctions, since It is principle that is involved, and not certain papers. The proposed legislation is sweeping and un- discriminating, and so must be the battle against it. Let the newspaper press of the State, rural and other, un derstand that not it alone is endan gered, but the principle which gives to American citizenship any virtue and to life any value. Let legislators reflect upon historical truth—namely, that throughout the an nals of man there is no record of effort to gag or cripple a free press that has not resulted in injury to free institu tions. Better far that there should be some injury to a few because of the er rors of others than a great State should make a beginning in retogression by enacting sweeping laws against the lib erty of the press which is synonymous with liberty of the people.

FURTHER PRESS EXPRESSION GENERAL DEMAND FOR A CAU CUS OF LEGISLATORS. The Interior Press Practically Unanimous on the Question. During the past week the "Record- Union" has printed many columns of expressions of the interior Republican press, showing an almost universal de mand that the Republican members of the Legislature meet and decide upon a United States Senator. Here are more of them: Let There he a Caucus. (From the Mail of Woodland.) It is time the Republicans in tha Leg islature who are opposed to a caucus came to their senses. As it is now, they are doing some fine Democratic politics. The Democratic press is exult ing over the squabble and prophesying success overwhelming for its party if the present Legislature fails to elect a 1 Senator. The Republicans of the State are ut terly disgusted at the dilatory tactics of those who refuse to go into caucus, and these legislators will hear from their constituents in no uncertain tones if they do not do their duty by break ing the deadlock. If this Legislature does not elect a Senator it will seriously handicap the party for several years. They should pay no further heed to tha treacherous "Call" and "Chronicle," who nc longer represent the Republican party, but the selfish interests of their jeaious proprietors. Stand up and do your duty to your party and throw aside petty jealousies and prejudices. President McKinley needs all the support he can get now: he has too many traitors in Congress try ing to embarrass him, so let Cali fornia send a true-blue Republican to lend him loyal support. Get Together. (From the Stockton Independent.) The deadlock continues unbroken! The people of California demand that it be broken. The Republicans of California de mand a Republican Senator. The Republicans of the whole nation demand a Senator from this State to take his seat in the extra session of Congress which is almost sure to be called in March or April. A Republican Senator is demanded in "Washington to vote on the army re organization, the Nicaragua Canal, the delayed appropriations, the treaty with Canada, the Alaska Territorial Govern ment, the Hawaiian bill, the Pacific cable and a dozen other important measures that can't get through this session. This valley demands a Republican Senator to help it secure adequate ap propriations for river improvement. The people from store, factory and home that went out in the last cam paign to work for a Republican Legis lature-in order that a Senator might be secured who is in touch with modern American principles and progress de mand a Republican Senator. All demand the breaking of the dead lock. All demand that the Republican legis lators get together. Ought to Caucus. (From the Vallejo Chronicle.) We believe, as a Republican paper, that there ought to be a Republican caucus held at Sacramento to decide upon a candidate for United States Sen ator. This is cried down as a Burns movement, but there is no reason why his opponents should not join together in a caucus and name the man. Of course the Democrats all over the State howl that a. caucus means Burns, be cause if the deadlock continues until the end of the session the election of Senator will go over to the next Legis lature, which may be Democratic. The Republicans at the Capitol owe it to th? party to get together and settle their differences. The Danger. (From the Mail of Woodland.) Ed. Hamilton of the "Examiner" threw out a very significant hint when he said the Democrats were desirous of having the deadlock continued until the end of the session, which would enable them to get the Legislature two years from now, elect a Senator, and also redistrict or gerrymander the State so as t(; prevent as many Republicans from being elected as possible. The danger of this ought to induce the Re publicans to settle their differences in caucus. But One Opinion. i (Alameda Encinal.) The Oakland "Tribune" Is doing good : woTk in obtaining interviews with rep resentative Republicans throughout the county on the subject of breaking the Senatorial deadlock. There is practic ally but one opinion expressed, and that is that the Republican members of the legislature should get together in con ference and agree upon some plan of breaking the deadlock and selecting a United States Senator. In none of the intei views is any personal preference for any particular candidate given, but all arc- in favor of the selection of some Republican who shall be satisfactory to the party and to the State. Certainly the representatives of Alameda County in the Legislature will have little diffi culty, in understanding the sentiment of their constituents. Hold a Conference. (From the Santa Monica Outlook.) Renewed life has been infused into the Senatorial contest by the proposi tion of an open caucus or conference, and the Capital City is all agog over the new turn affairs have taken. And strargest of all is the fact that the staid old "Record-Union," that most conservative of all Pacific Coast jour nals, has done it all. In an editorial on Saturday the "Record-Union" an nounced that it is the imperative duty of Republican legislators to get to gether and elect a Republican United States Senator, whether it be Grant, Burns, Eulla or some other one of the active contestants, holding that It would be far better to defeat every one of the present candidates and elect some one yet unannounced than for' California to be defrauded out of a Senator by per sonal and selfish motives of candidates. The "Record-Union" has sounded the keynote in the particular that a Senator must be elected, and that the Repub lican legislators will be held respons ible if they fail in the one great mission for which they were chosen. But how shall they accomplish the desired end? Certainly not by any dark-lantern caucus, for that would be the political knell of every one who entered it. But it is not possible to see how an open conference of the Republican members could result in anything but good to the party. The first conference might not result in bringing the difficulty any nearer a solution than it is to-day, but it cer tainly would have a tendency to bring matters before the people in a light that would perhaps suggest some way- of picking the deadlock. Something out of the ordinary must take place to change the prtsent status, and an open confer ence looks like the most feasible "some thing." Certainly each candidate would be as well protected in an open conference as he is in the joint assembly, and by hold ing such a conference selfish motives and interests might be buried in the higher, truer interests of party loyalty. Truly Los Angeles County's Idol, Robert N. Bulla, would have nothing to lose by any comparisons that might be made, but. on the contrary, our star would sparkle brighter than ever in the firmament of Senatorial candidates. Let the conference come. We have the man that it will help. Notaries Appointed. Governor Gage yesterday commis sioned and appointed the following No taries Public: O. H. Spring, Areata; G. E.
