The Work of the Democratic
City Convention.
R. A. Ling Receives the Nom
ination for Mayor.
The Successful Aspirants for the Re
maining Oftices.
A Detailed Report of the Proceedings.
The Men Nominated and the Votes
They Got—A Lively Session
Completed Yesterday.
At 10:35 Chairman Ryan called the
Democratic city convention to order at
Armory hall, and as soon as the dele
gates had settled down in the seats al
lotted to them, be addressed them as
Ghntlembn of this DEMOCRATIC Con
vkntion : For the last three days you
have had your fingers on the public
pulse, and are now perfectly familiar
with its complaint. You are assembled
here today to conclude the deliberations
you commenced on Saturday last, and
as there is no boss to direct, or fixed
slate to abide by, it is to be expected
that there will be a wide difference of
opinion among you as to the best policy
for you to pursue.
I desire to say that it should be borne
in mind that all your battles should be
fought on the floor of this convention,
so that when we leave this bail, we may
all be just as good Democrats as before
we entered, and bow gracefully to the
will of the majority. If you do that
you will reflect honor, not only on your
selves and he who presides over your
deliberations, but also to the great party
to whom you belong.
At tbe close of Mr. Ryan's remarks,
which were greeted with wild applause,
Adolph Davis, chairman of the commit
tee on order of business, moved to re
consider the vote by which the report of
that committee had been adopted, in
order that the order of business might
be changed by placing the nominations
of candidates for mayor first instead of
last. The motion was seconded by N.C.
A. T. Patton vigorously opposed the
motion, as no object had been stated,
nor could there be any good and suf
ficient reason offered, unless it was done
in the interest of some particular can
didate, who would lose strength by de
ferring the matter for a few hours. If
that was the reason the convention
ought to know it. He did not want any
thing of that kind, and believed the con
vention would uphold him in his ob
jection. They were there to select a
man who should be the choice of the
convention and they ought to do their
duty faithfully and fearlessly.
W. P. Hyatt thought that the propo
sition advanced by the previous speaker
should be reversed; and said that the
fact was patent that "this thing" had
been prearranged before the adjourn
ment on Saturday evening, in the inter
ests of a particular candidate. He very
earnestly appealed to the convention to
endorse the motion of Mr. Davis.
N. C. Bledsoe argued in support of tho
motion, that the change would place the
head of the ticket where it belonged,
A. Barker was opposed to the change,
and pertinently enquired why a kick
was not made before the report was
adopted Saturday last.
R. W. Ready thought that if the mat
ter was allowed to remain as it was, tlio
interest in the convention would be
maintained, and all the delegates would
E. C. Bower could see no reason why
a change should be made, as the dele
gates were all prepared to act in the or
der oi business already agreed upon.
The motion to reconsider was then
put, and voted down by a large majority.
Nominations of candidates for the of
fice of city clerk were then declared to
be in order, and A. T. Patton rose to
present the name of Maynard F. Stiles
to the convention. He characterized
Mr. Stiles as a man seven feet in height,
who was known generally as the tall eu
calyptus. He had had experience and
would prove a very useful man around
the mayor's office. Although born in
Vermont, a state which produced but
few Democrats, he had never known
anything else but Democracy, and was a
sterling Democrat now. He was a grad
uate of Harvard, and an intelligent and
highly educated gentleman. He had
served two terms as city attorney of
Crested Butte, Col., and since his resi
dence here had been clerk of the council
and city auditor. If elected, he would
give the people a clean, honest and in
telligent service, and their business
matters would be transacted efficiently.
Colonel J, J. Ayers in seconding the
nomination said he had just three words
to say. That M. F. Stiles possessed the
qualifications insisted upon by Jefferson,
and lie was honest, capable and fit.
Major E. W. Burke also seconded the
nomination, which he said expressed the
sentiment of every independent voter in
the city, who was disgusted with the
work of the city hall ring. Mr. Stiles
was a gentleman worthy of the name of
A motion to nominate M. F. Stiles
unanimously by acclamation was then
made, and on being put, carried amid a
scene of enthusiasm.
Mr. Stiles expressed himself as much
gratified at the honor conferred upon
him, and assured the convention
that he would, if elected, carry
out the duties of his office as be
came a Democrat. He had followed
the fortunes of the Democratic party
through good and hard times, and his
earliest conceptions of the correctness of
the principles of Democracy had only
been confirmed by mature thought.
The fact that he hail been endorsed by
the Reformers did not make him any
less a Democrat.
On motion it was resolved to limit
nominating speeches to two minutes
each, one minute only being permitted
to those making seconding speeches.
The presentation of tbe names of can
didates for the office of city assessor were
next declared to be in order.
Northcraft nominated W.J. A. Smith,
a man at whom no one could point the
finger of scorn, and »who, by his experi
ence in the offices of the city and county
assessors, was eminently fitted to hold
the position.
Judge Guthrie, in presenting the
name of W. R. Stephenson to the con
vention, said he did so at the earnest so
licitation of a number of his friends who
were better acquainted with the gentle
man than he was. All he knew of Mr.
Stephenson was that be had served one
term in office, and the city was seven
teen cents in debt to him when he
stepped out.
T. E. Gibbon nominated Adolph
Ramish, a young Democrat who was pre
eminently fitted for the position because
of his sterling business qualifications. It
was a recognized fact that all depart
ments of the municipal government were
business machines, and should be run
by business men.
Seconding speeches were made in
rapid succession from every quarter of
the hall, but Ramish was evidently the
most popular of the three candidates.
The nominations having been closed,
the candidates were called to the plat
form, and after being introduced made
brief speeches.
W. J. A. Smith congratulated the con
vention upon the fact that it had three
such good names to choose from, either
of whom would do honor to the party if
elected. He had served eleven years as
a deputy in the assessor's office, for
eight of which he had been chief deputy,
and therefore was confident of hia ability
to run the office. He had tried to do
his duty to all, and he should still con
tinue to do so.
W. R. Stephenson was proud of the
privilege of addressing the convention.
He had tried to do what was right and
honest while in office, and would do so
again. His fate was in their hands.
A. Ramish said he fully realized the
importance of the position for which he
was a candidate, but felt confident of
his ability to fulfill the duties of said
office as well ac any man in the city.
The roll was then called by precincts,
but before the result of the first ballot
was made known a number of changes
were made in favor of Ramish, whicb oc
casioned a delay of considerable dura
tion. Finally, however, a motion was
made and carried, to the effect that
Ramish be declared the nominee of the
convention unanimously by acclamation.
The next order of business was an
nounced to be that of presenting the
names of candidates for the office of city
A motion was made to ad journ until
2 o'clock p.m., but was promptly voted
Jack Narey then rose to a question of
privilege, and stated that a rumor was
current in the hall to the effect that at
a meeting of the Liquor Dealers' associ
ation, held at Turner hall on Tuesday
night, the saloon men had endorsed
Hazard for mayor. He wished the con
vention to know that this was not true.
Chairman Ryan then asked: "Is
there a candidate for auditor?" to
which a voice responded, "Yes, a
Ex-Mayor C. E. Thorn said it afforded
him a great deal of pleasure to name for
the important office of city auditor,
Charles M. Williams, whose career
he had watched from earliest boy
hood to the present time, and whom
he knew had followed the right course.
He had filled positions in the assessor's,
county clerk's and United States land
offices with credit to himself and tho
party, and he was eminently fitted for
the position of auditor.
A. Orfila, on behalf of the Spanish-
Americana of this city, claimed repre
sentation on the municipal ticket, and
nominated Frank A. Mauricio, as the
only man who could offset the Republi
can candidate for the same office.
T. E. Gibbon, in nominating John D.
Schieck, said that it was not only good
policy, but it was also in good taste in
selecting business men to transact the
city's business, to choose men "to the
manor born." Such an one was Mr.
Schieck. lie had for the past thirty
years seen Eos Angeles grow from a
small pueblo to a vast city, and he de
served recognition at the hands of the
Democratic party.
Messrs. Northcraft and Carlton sec
onded Frank A. Mauricio, and Willig
seconded the nomination of J. D.
A. Parker nominated Fred Potts, a
young man who was known to every
Democrat in the city, and who came of
a nice family.
J. Davidson and A. T. Patton seconded
J. D. Schieck; R. R. Dominguez per
formed a like office for F. A. Mauricio,
while R. B. Powell seconded Fred Potts.
On motion of Nordholt, the nomina
tions were then closed, and balloting was
proceeded with,|which ( resulted, after a
number of changes had been made, in
favor of Schieck and Mauricio, as fol
lows: F. A. Mauricio, 89; J. D. Schieck,
77; CM. Williams, 22; Fred Potts, 1.
Total, 189. Necessary for a choice, 95.
None of t he candidates having received
the necessary number of votes, thechair
ordered the secretary to call tho roll for
a second ballot.
Motions to adjourn were made and
ruled out of order by the chairman, and
for several minutes n scene of confusion
took place. Finally, however, order
was restored, and the majority being in
favor of continuing, the second ballot
was proceeded with and resulted as fol
lows :F. A. Mauricio, 97; J. D. Schieck,
90 ;C. M. Williams, 1 ; total, 188; neces
sary for a choice, 95.
On motion of T. E. Gibbon, the nomi
nation of F. A. Mauricio was then de
clared unanimous by acclamation ; and
on motion of Judge Guthrie a recess was
taken until 1:30 o'clock.
Afternoon Session.
It was 1:45 o'clock before all the dele
gates got together again, but Chairman
Ryan at once called them to order and
announced that nominations for city
treasurer would be entertained.
Fred darkness presented the name of
1. 11. Polk, and referring to that gentle
man's connection with the Southern
Pacific Railroad company, and the IT. S.
land office, said that no further remarks
were necessary. Mr. Polk was a Demo
crat, and was in every respect qualified
to fill the office he sought at the hands
of his party, lie was not the nominee
of any bank, clique or corporation.
On motion of R. Doininguez the nom
inations were closed nnd Mr. Polk was
nominated by acclamation.
Mr. Polk briefly thanked the conven
tion for the honor it had conferred on
him, and pledged himself if elected to
fulfill the duties of his office according
to law.
The next order of business was that
of nominating candidates for the office
of city attorney.
J. T. Hoax, in presenting the name
of Frank Howard, said that happily for
him, .and fortunately for the gentleman
he named, he needed no laudation. His
long residence in this city had made his
name a household word with its citizens.
As a true index of the character he
bore, he called attention to the fact that
the reformers had, unsolicited, recom
mended bis nomination. He was a
worthy son of a worthy sue.
Judge A. J. King nominated J.Marion
Brooks, and said that it afforded him
great pleasure to recommend him for
favorable consideration by the conven
tion. He was a man of education and
accomplishments, and had never sought
or aspired to any office to which he had
not been elected. As district attorney
and city attorney in this an adjoining
counties, he had made an unimpeach
able record.
N. (J. Bledsoe, C. W. Allender, E. C.
Bower and R. R. Dominguez seconded
Mr. Brooks's nomination in glowing
speeches, Mr. Northcraft, E. W. Burke,
Judge (iuthne, J. S. Redona and A. T.
Patton seconding that of Frank Howard
with equal zest.
The nominations were then closed and
the two candidates met on the platform
and shook hands, amid ringing cheers
from their respective admirers.
Frank H. Howard said he came before
the convention as a Democrat, and did
not think it was necessary to say any
thing as to his Democracy. He would
only say that be his client a public or a
private one, he would do his level best
to do hia duty.
J. Marion Brooks said he felt it in his
bones that if nominated he would
be elected, if elected be would
stand between the poor man
and the great corporations, and
would defend his property against en
croachment and confiscation. He prom
ised to resign, if during his term of
office it was found necessary to employ
outside counsel to aid him in his duty.
A ballot was then taken and resulted
as follows: J. Marion Brooks, 105;
Frank H. Howard, 80; total, 185. Nec
essary for a choice 93.
Mr. Brooks was then declared the
unanimous nominee of the convention
by acclamation.
Mr. Brooks was called for and said
that he recognized the fact that although
he was nominated, he could not be
elected unless the delegates assisted
him, and he expected that not only they
but their wives and daughter*, would
work for J. Marion Brooks, the next city
There was a slight delay when the
next order of business waa announced,
that of placing in nomination candidates
for the office of street superintendent.
Judge Winder, however, took the
floor, and, in nominating Matt Carr,
referred to the importanceof the position
he sought. Having served in the office
under General Baldwin's regime, he was
eminently fitted to fill it with credit to
himself and satisfaction to his party.
T. E. Gibbon nominated Andy Mc-
Nally, whom he characterized as a
"brick," who had probably done more
to build up the city than anyone else in
the city. This nomination was received
with enthusiastic cheers from all parts
of the hall. It was seconded by F. J.
Capitain and N. C. Bledsoe, Judge
Dupuy performing a like service for
Matt Carr.
The candidates were then called upon
for speeches and fees. Andy McNally said
that if he was nominated he was sure of
election, no matter what the size or cal
iber of his opponent. He had always
done his duty by the men with whom
he had business dealings, and he would
continue to do so with the tax-payers,
rich and poor alike. If elected, his sub
ordinates should be men of the best ca
pabilities and respectable Democrats.
Matt Carr said that it seemed that he
wasn't, in it. He would, however, if
elected, wear the same sized bat he now
wore, and if he was not nominated he
would work just as hard for the ticket.
A ballot was then proceeded with, but
when the thirty-fifth precinct was
reached Matt Carr, who had only re
ceived about thirty votes, retired from
the field, and McNally's nomination
was made unanimous by acclamation.
Andy McNally was again called upon
for a speech, and he said briefly that he
thanked his friends from the bottom of
liis heart for what they had done. He
did not intend to waste any time now,
but he would make his opponent wear
out a pair ot shoes in keeping track of
him between now and election day.
Hon.M.E.C. Munday then nominated
for the important office of city engineer
"that elegant young gentleman of learn
ing in all its branches," Mr. J. 11. Dock
weiler, and in a few words placed his
name for favorable consideration before
the convention. Fred Harkness sec
onded the nomination, and moved that
it be declared unanimous by acclama
R. B. Powell nominated W. T. Lambie,
however, but there was no second, and
with the exception of a few dissenting
voices, the motion carried.
J. H. Dockweiler, on being called to
the platform, said it was useless lor him
to make a speech. He was known to
the major portion of the delegates, and
if elected the party would never regret
the trust and confidence reposed in him.
For the office of tax and license col
lector, E. C. Bower nominated W. F.
Heathman in a brief eulogistic speech,
and on motion of W. P. Hyatt, he was
'declared the unanimous nominee of the
convention by acclamation.
W. F. Heathman waß called for, and
said that until five minutes before his
name was placed before the convention,
he had no idea of running for office. No
man was, however, more willing to step
forth and do his duty for the party than
he, and if elected, he would assure the
public of the safety ot its money.
The next order of business was that of
nominating five candidates for the
board of library trustees.
Colonel J. J. Ayers, in presenting the
name of E. H. Owens to the convention,
said that it afforded him great pleasure
to do so. Mr. Owens had lived here a
number of years, and he had known him
elsewhere for many years. He was one
of the most respected citizens of Los An
geles, a well informed gentleman, and of
a literary turn of mind.
W. R. Haizlip was nominated by a
delegate from the First ward, but subse
quently withdrew.
R. R. Dominguez nominated H. Jay
Hanchette, who was seconded by R. C.
W. Meade nominated J. B. Dunlap,
who was seconded by N. C. Bledsoe.
Judge JWinder placed in nomination
the name of Col. J. J. Ayers, who waß
seconded by C. W. Allender.
A motion to the effect that nominations
be closed was made by A. C. Clarke, but
was voted down.
A. Orfila nominated J. C. Mclnerney.
I). M. Scott was nominated by M. W.
Conkling, but subsequently withdrew
his name.
W. P. Hyatt nominated W.W. Phelps,
and J. (?. Ward nominated Frank 11.
The nominations were then closed,
and, on motion of T. E. Gibbon, it was
resolved that the five candidates receiv
ing the highest number of votes be de
clared the nominees of the convention.
The ballot was then taken, and re
sulted as follows: Frank 11. Howard,
178; H. Jay Hanchette, 103; J.J. Ayers,
157; E. 11. Owens, 1-10; J. B. Dunlap,
181; W. W. Phelps, 85; J. C. Mclner
ney, 9.
On motion of D. Pickit, the candi
dates were excused from the payment of
the usual $6 fees.
Hon. M. E. C. Munday, chairman of
the city central committee, announced
that a meeting of the entire committee
would be held at 10 o'clock this morn
ing, and that every candidate was ex
pected to attend another meeting at
11:80 at the committee rooms in the
Downey block.
Nominations for the office of mayor
were then declared to be in order, and a
shout of welcome burst from the throats
of the delegates.
Judge Winder took the platform and
presented the name of J. Shirley Ward,
a man whom ho characterized as
eminently fitted to occupy the executive
chair of this city. His Democracy was
unquestioned, and his character and in
tegritv were of the highest. He pos
sessed the confidence of all men, and if
elected, would give Los Angeles a clean
and honest administration. His motto
was : "He serves the Democratic party
best, Who best serves the city."
Judge A. J. King said it afforded him
great pleasure to second this nomina
tion, as Mr. Ward was a gentleman of
culture and unblemished character; and
he heartily endorsed all that had been
said in his favor.
E. C. Bower, in nominating R. A.
Ling, said he did so with pride, because
the name was one against which no one
could cay aught. This candidate
had always been among the fore
most in the ranks of the Democrats
when there was any work to be done,
and he had always gone down into his
pockets to meet the expenses of the
party and carry it to success. He had
risen from, but was still one of, the
Mr. Northcraft seconded the nomina
tion of R. A. Ling, and eulogized him
until called to "time" by the convention.
Col. J. J. Ayers said that the other
day when the convention adjourned, he
had expressed himself as tired of putting
up tickets only to have them knocked
down. Since then, he had tried his ut
most to feel the public pulse, and bring
out some one whose victory could be as
sured. It was sufficient for him to rise
and second the nomination of John Shir
ley Ward, to show that he found such a
man as was required. He had no doubt
that as the head of the ticket, Mr. Ward
would carry the whole ticket through,
lie advised the convention to act with
prudence, as the enemy was strong and
Fred Harkness seconded R. A. Ling's
nomination,and said that he was always
in favor of the laboring men and would
undoubtedly get tbe laboring man's vote.
R. B. Powell, J. S. Redona and C. W.
Allender seconded the nomination of
J. Shirley Ward, and on motion of T. F.
Donahue the nominations were then
The candidates were called upon to
take the platform, and R. A. Ling ad
dressed the convention as follows:
Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of the
convention : I want to say to you that
this is the proudest moment of' my life,
when I can appear before my fellow
citizens asking for the nomination for
the high and important office of mayor
of this city. I want to say to you that
if you give me this nomination, that I
will go forth from this hall to battle for
the cause, and I will be elected as sure
as the Ist of December rolls around. I
have been in this tight for a month, and
I have faced the battle. I care not
who was against me, and if elected I
pledge you my word and honor that I
will give you a safe, conservative, econ
omical and pure an administration as I
can possibly give you. I have been here
for seventeen years. My family is here.
My children were born here, and all
that I have in the world near and dear
to me is here in the city oi Los Angeles.
I pay taxes, I am proud to say, on fifteen
thousand dollars' worth of property,
and I came here seventeen years
ago with a dollar and six bits in my
pocket. I went to work to keep my
family, at carpentry work, and I don't
know whether I made a very good car
penter or not, but I did the best I could.
Gentlemen, I say to you now, if I am
elected there will be no bickerings or
strifes in my administration. I will
give my time and talents, and every
thing I have in the world I give it to
serve the people faithfully, honestly,
honorably and well. I thank you.
John Shirley Ward said that twenty
four hours earlier he hail no idea of
appearing as a candidate before the con
j vention, and in doing so, he came, not
to seek an office, but, as far as a num
ber of his friends were concerned, it
sought him. He was a Democrat of the
old school, one of those who had level
heads and backbones of iron.
He had taken an humble
and honest part in every canvass
for the past fifteen years. If elected the
voice of the people should be to him as
the voice of God, and he would concen
trate every gift with which he had been
endowed for the benefit of the city. He
would protect the rights of the poor as
well as those of the millionaire, and
would let the corporations perish to let
the people live.
A scene of great excitement ensued,
as three cheers were asked for the re
spective candidates by A. T. Patton and
Fred Harkness.and each side attempted
to drown the other's shouts.
Order being again restored, a ballot
was taken and resulted as follows: R.
A. Ling, 118; J. S. Ward, 72. Total,
190. Necessary for a choice, 90.
The successful candidate was picked
up by a numberof spectators and carried
on their shoulders to the platform, when
he was again cheered. He thanked his
friends bristly and retired.
T. F. Donahue move to declare R. A.
Ling the unanimous nominee of the con
vention, but there were a number of
dissenting voices, and the motion barely
Chairman Evan then announced that
the next order of business was that of
dividing the convention into ward con
ventions for the purpose of nominating
candidates for the council and board of
education, to be reported back to the

gret at being unable to accept the nom
ination of member of the board of library
trustees, as he was a membar of the pre
sent board, which intended to contest
the right of the new board to take charge
on legal grounds.
On motion of B. E. Taney, the with
drawal was accepted and the matter re
ferred to the city central committee.
Chairman Ryan then thanked the
convention for courtesies extended, and
