SIMPSON SOUNDS THE KEYNOTE. He Leaves Bulla for Burns and Believes in Caucusing. No Bobtail Caucus Yesterday—Big Fair Bills Favorably Reported—Other Bills Passed. The pressure brought to bear upon Ihe members of the Legislature by the people and the press of the Republican t>arty, in demanding the election of a United States Senator, has borne Its 'first fruits. The first break in the Senatorial deadlock occurred at yesterday's joint session, when Senator Simpson of Pas adena, one of the most conscientious ■Tiembers of either house, withdrew ifrom the Bulla ranks and cast his lot with the followers of Colonel Burns. Senator Simpson merely acted in ac cordance with the wishes of the great jmajority of the Republican party, and ■it now seems certain that his course ■win be followed by others. It is the first break in the chain and the Rrob- abilities are that the opposition to cau cus rule will disintegrate within the Jnext few days. I It was whispered about in both Aouses during the mornlng.that Senator who on Wednesday night ex pressed himself as being weary of the .dilatory tactics employed in the elec- Hlon of a United States Senator, and ■who at that time declared in favor of . going into open caucus in order to re lieve the situation, would break away '.from Bulla, for whom he had voted Bince the first ballot was taken; but re gardless of the certainty that he wou>d sever his session-long allegiance, the change, when it came, was in the na ture of a bomb. When Simpson's name was reached on the roll call, he arose in his place, and said: "I desire at this time to east my Vote —" "A point of order! A point of order!" yelled Assemblyman Melick. "I desire—" continue Simpson. "A point of order!" shouted Melick. "Under the rules, no' member can ex plain his vote before the roll call has been finished." "The point is-well taken," ruled Pres ident pro tern Flint. "I don't desire to explain my vote until after it,is cast," retorted Simpson. "Cast it, then," said>the President pro tern. Yes, sir; I will cast it," returned Simpson. "I cast,my vote for Daniel M. Burns." And then, pandemonium broke loose— the only real, genuine pandemonium cf the session. Tin pans and fire bells would have made no impression against the great roar that went up. And the roar continued and lengthen&d out until a full minute had passed, and still Senator Simpson remained on his feet. The President pro tern thumped his sounding board, and thumped again, but until the demonstration had run its course he might as well have reserved the energy expended. When at length quiet fell, the Sena tor from Pasadena attempted to con tinue, but was ruled out of order and remained quietly in his pUace until the roll call had been finished .and the vote announced, when he again took the floor and said: "I simply desire to explain that I cast my vote for Daniel M. Burns be cause I consider him the grandest Re publican in the State of California." And so occurred the-flrst break in the Senatorial deadlock. Subsequent to casting his vote for Colonel Burns, Senator Simpson ex plained that his reason for voting for Colonel Burns was that, in his judg ment, it was the duty of the Republi cans in the Legislature to elect a Sen ator, and it was his belief that Burns was In control of the situation and has th» best prospect of election. He voted for Bulla from the beginning, and changed out of no purejudice to him. "I have the same regard for him I have always had, but I have become con vinced that there is no hope of his win ning," said Senator &impson. "It was my desire," he said, "to assist in pro moting a general caucus of the Repub licans on the Senatorial question, but the conference yesterday afternoon de veloped the fact that there was no pros pect of obtaining the consent of the members there assembled to any such Th slight cough may soon become deep-seated and hard tv cure.

In view of the long deadlock, and the great dissatisfaction it has ex cited among the people, I felt it to be my duty to take the step I took, and I did so on my own responsibility." He said he was not acting in concert with others in the matter, or in accordance with any agreement. FAILED TO CAUCUS. The efforts of the supporters of the "trailing" candidates- to hold a caucus yesterday resulted in failure. The rea son given for the failure was that the members had been unable to confer with their chiefs, and until they had done so, declined to be bound by any caucus agreement. It Is understood that another attempt to caucus will be made to-day. I A VOICE FROM THE SOUTH. Among the arrivals yesterday was F. W. Richardson, editor and proprie tor of the San Bernardino "Times-In dex." In speaking with regard to the Senatorial situation, Mr. Richardson had this to say: "The time has come in the present Senatorial contest when the interest of individual candidates should be laid aside and the welfare of the Republi can party made the sole consideration. The good of the party is of more im portance than any candidate or than all the candidates now being voted for. I have been and am now a consistent supporter of State Senator Bulla, but I do not approve of the policy that if my favorite cannot win we will have no Senator at all. At the last election the Republican party won a splendid victory in the State on the Issue of electing a Republican Senator to sus tain the able and patriotic administra tion of President McKinley. Now that we have won that election we should not be prevented from enjoying the fruits of our victory by the contentions of candidates. The only way to settle this matter is by a fair and open cau cus of the eighty-five Republican mem bers of the Legislature. A failure to elect now means that California and the Republican party will be short one Senator for the next two years. It would also mean the possibility of de feat two years hence and the election of a Democratic Senator." HORSESHOEING BILL PASSED. Among the measures passed by the Senate yesterday was that commonly known as the scientific horseshoeing bill. The bill provides for the appoint ment of a Board of Examiners, to con sist of five members and a Secretary. It shall be the duty of such Board of Examiners to visit different sections of the State and examine applicants for certificates, the applicants to pay $3 for such examination. The members of the board and the Secretary shall each receive no more than $5 per day, and the payment of their salaries is made to depend upon the examination fees. The bill provides that an apprentice may, after serving two years at the trade, apply for a certificate. The min imum penalty for the violation of the Act is fixed at $10. THE STORY OF THE FILES. The Assembly waxes busy and the "story of the files" comes out in vol uminous daily chapters, always to be "continued in our next." Three sessions per day are the regu lar order now, and still the introduc tion of new measures goes as merrily on as if there were all summer in which to consider and amend and debate and pass them. THE BIG FAIR BILLS. The Committee on Municipal Corpor ations reported favorably yesterday on Cobb's A. B. 729, enabling the counties, cities and towns of the State to raise money for their own special exhibits at the proposed "Pacific Ocean Exposi tion," but this is only a rider to the big bill, 728, which calls for a half mill ion State appropriation In order to do the thing up in good shape. This bill is still in the hands of the Ways and Means Committee, but it is no secret that the committee will report it back favorably with hearty unanimity. FOR EXEMPTIONS. Caminetti, after the school exemption Constitutional amendment was adopt ed ytsterday, seemed determined not to be outdone in exemption generosity, and Introduced an A. C. A providing that "land and the improvements thereon be exempt from taxation for State purposes." The author of the measure stoutly insists that he means it seriously, and is prepared to maintain its wisdom. He ii&s long thought of such a measure, which is based on the law of Penn sylvania, where, so says Caminetti, realty is not taxed for State purposes, and the result is that wealth in stocks, bonds, shares and many other forms of personal property is forced into the open and taxed to such good effect that the State expenses are paid and a sur plus left, which is divided pro rata among the counties, according to their assessed valuation. This, Caminetti claims, releases the small holders, en ables them to retain and improve farms and other homes, and places the burden of taxation on the more hidden sources of wealth. In California the saving of the State tax on land and improve ments would be a relief to~"ihe people THE BECOBP-UNIOy,; SACRAMENTO; FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1899. of, he estimates, from 45 to 50 cents on the $100 valuation. TO SELL OR EXCHANGE. Knight's A. B. 437, amending the Act to authorize the State agricultural societies under the'control of the State to sell property held by them, ,so that such property may be exchanged for other property more suitable "or avail able, was reported back favorably from the Judiciary Committee yesterday. This is of local' interest, as it affects the disposition of Agricultural Park here. WEIGHTS AND MEASURES. Rickard's A. B. 852, introduced yes terday, provides for supplying the Sec j retary of State with a set of standard weights and measures, to be kept un der seal, and to be used, under the pro visions of the bill, to keep up the stand ard throughout the State. For this pur. pose the State is divided Into fifteen districts. The Governor is to appoint seventeen inspectors, one for each dis trict and three for the ninth. Their duties are to inspect and compare all weights and measures in use in com merce, report delinquencies, etc. The salary of each inspector is $150 per month, and he is allowed another $100 per month to pay an assistant and traveling- expenses.

B. 240, Kelsey, providing for the establishment and maintenance of sewer districts adjacent to municipal corporations, created considerable dis cussion regarding rather its specific provisions than its spirit.

He-was opposed to such plen ary ybwers »oeing placed in the hands of any Beard of Supervisors. Morehouse replied that the provisions of the bill were aimed to apply partic ularly to San Jose, which, while the city proper covered only one square mile, had a sopulation of 30.000 imme diately surrounding it, which immense district had no system of sewerage, and could have none unless allowed to con struct sewers and connections with the main sewer of San Jose, which reached (Continued on Sixth Page.) CATARRH OF STOMACH. A Pleasant, SJjnple, but Safe and Effec i tual Cure for It. Catarrh of the stomach has long been considered the next thing to incurable. The usual symptoms are a full or bloating sensation after eating, accom panied sometimes, with sour or watery risings, a formation of gases, causing pressure on the heart and lungs and difficult breathing, headaches, fickle ap petite, nervousness and a general played out, languid feeling. There is often a foul taste in the mouth, coated tongue, and if the in terior of the stomach could be seen it would show a-slimy, inflamed condition. The cure of this common and ob stinate trouble is found in a treatment which causes the food to be readily, thoroughly digested before it has time to ferment and irritate the delicate mu cuous surfaces of the stomach. To se cure a prompt and healthy digestion is the one necessary thing to do, and when normal digestion is secured the catarrhal condition will have disap peared. According to Dr. Harlanson, the safest and best treatment is to use after each meal a tablet composed of Diatase, Aseptic Pepsin, a little Nux, Golden Seals and fruit acids. These tablets can now be found at all drug stores under the name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tab lets, and not being a patent medicine can be used with perfect safety and assurance that healthy appetite and thorough digestion will follow their reg ular use after meals. Mr. N. J. Booher of 2710 Dearborn street, Chicago, 111., writes: "Catarrh is a local condition resulting from 1 a neglected cold in the head, whereby the lining membrane of the nose be comes inflamed and the poisonous dis charge therefrom passing backward in to the throat reaches the stomach, thus producing catarrh of the stomach. Med ical authorities prescribed for me for three years for catarrh of the stomach without cure, but to-day I am the hap piest of men after using only one box of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. I can not find appropriate words to express my good feeling. I have found flesh, appetite and sound rest from their use." Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the safest preparation as well as the simplest and most convenient remedy for any form of indigestion, catarrh of stomach, biliousness, sour stomach, heartburn and bloating after meals. Send for little book mailed free, on stomach troubles, by addressing Stuart Company. Marshall, Mich. The tablets can be found at all drug stores. . i IN THE SUPERIOR COURT.
