KAN -gKQO, 110 South Spring St. fOpn. Nartann Hotel./ WEDNESDAY MORNING, JANTJABY 4, 1893. GOV. MARKHAM'S MESSAGE His Excellency's Address to the Legislature. The Document is Commendable for Its Brevity. Some Recommendation* Made That Are Quite to the Point. The Senate Organised by the Republican* and the Assembly by the Dem ocrats—Gorild Speaker of the House. By the Associated Press. Sacbamknto, Jan. 3.—Governor Mark hum, in his first biennial address, ex presses himself in favor of transmitting special messages to the legislature at the occasion may arise, rather than at tempting to cover the entire field of possible legislation at this time. The state as a whole, the governor says, is in a most prosperous condition; but he finds that large quantities of food and other products, notably live stock, meats and canned goeds, which could be produced at home, are beiug im ported. The statutes providing that county boards of supervisors shall make annua! statements to the surveyor-general ©' county development is found to be a dead letter and it is recommended that the state agricultural society be require.! to maintain such statistical depart ment. * The governor finda the state iimi'ti tions in good condition and economically conducted. He recommends a uniform system for keeping their account)!. Nineteen thousand, three hundred per sons have been tared for by tbe various institutions during the year. The state university aud normal schools are at taining good results. The appropriations for Yoeemite tai ley and the big tree grove have been profitably expended, and suitable ap propriations are further recommended. Tbe legislature is asked to carefully con- Bide ftitft recommendations of the state board <n forestry for the further protec tion of forests , Ths state officers' are briefly passed upon and their work commended. The governor states that the cost of printing public reports during the past two years has been about $220,01)0. and he recommends a greater condensation of reports and moro economy in the nae of printed matter. The governor concurs in the opinion of the adjntaiit-geueral that the nn tienr.l- piaTd will com pirn ta»ar»V») with any military organization in the country in efficiency and discipline, and earnestly recommends that appropria tions be made to meet all the necessary expenditures. The governor says a great saving will be effected by the annual assessment of personal property and the assessment of real eatate once in every two or <more years by the county assessor, instead of by county and municipal assessors, as now conducted. A just and equitable collection of rail road back taxes should be made. Of the pardoning power the governor aays: "When I reflect that there are oontined in our atate prisons from two to three times as many prisoners as in any other atate in the union, in proportion to our population, I am only too glad of a legitimate excuse to liberate appli cants for pardon." From statistics received the governor saya the jury verdicts in murder caees apparently indicate that the people are no longer in favor of capital punishment. The repeal of the coyote bounty law is recommended. The Australian ballot law ia com mended, except aa to fche provision for c unting the ballots. Tbe passage of a bill ceding to the na tional government the control of-the Santa Monica aoldiere' home is recom mended ; also a moderate appropriation for the establishment of a governor's mansion. The navigation of California streams is pronounced to be in a deplorable con dition, and a matter for immediate con sideration by the federal government. Everything poeeible should be done in the way of furthering tbe Nicaragua canal. The governor atatea he is an advocate of a legitimate competing railroad which would ensure lower freight rates and en courage new industries. The California world's fair building, he rav|, will be moat art'stic and at tractive, and the arrangement of the state's products therein will be sine to be impressive. The governor devotee some space to the important objsct of refunding the state dsb*, and says an investigation has c nvinced him that it is withiu Ihe province of the legislature to refund the debt without submitting the proposition to the people at the general elections, but he recommends an investigation of the matter by tbe legislature. THE LEGISLATURE. Both Brunches Organized—Gould Chosen Speaker of the House. Sacramento, Jan. 3.—The Democrats held a caucus last night and on tbe nomination for speaker there were three ballots as follows: First—Gould 13, Mathews 11, Shanahan 18. Second- Gould 13, Mathews 11, Shanahan 18. Third—Gould 28, Shanahan 17. On every ballot Shanahan had 13 votes from San Francisco. Mathews of Te hama was named as speaker pro tern. G. W. Peckham of San Joee was chosen to be secretary of the assembly. The Republicans chose Senator R. B. Carpenter of Los Angeles president pro tern of the senate. There wae but one candidate for secretary—F. G. Brandon. The Republican assemblymen gave Bledsoe of Humboldt their unanimous vote for speaker of the assembly. BOTH HOUBES ORGANIZED. The legislature met this morning and proceeded with organization. Tbe Re publicans organized tbe senate, choosing the officers named in tbe caucus, and tbe Democrats did tbe same in tbe aa tembly. No other business was trans acted. The organization of the assembly as completed is as follows: Speaker, F. H. Gould of Merced ; chief clerk, George W. Peckham of Santa Clara; assistant clerks, Ed J. Pringle and Marion Yea ger; sergeant at arms, Thomas E. Healy of San Francisco; minute clerk, I. Alex ander of Sacramento; engrossing clerk, James W<eil of San Francisco; journal clerk, Frank Anaya of Sacramento; en rolling clerk, Felix Mulgrew of Sonoma. At the afternoon session the governor's message was received and ordered printed. Both houses then adjourned until tomorrow. DEMOCRATS JUBILANT. The Democrats are jubilant over the fact that Burke, Non-Partiean, of San Francisco, went into the Democratic caucus last night, as they take that as an indication that be will stand with them on the senatorial fight. They also claim that Carlson, the independent candidate, will vote for White, which greatly strengthens that gentleman's position. THE SENATORIAL FIGHT. Loyd Tevls to Be Rntered in the Race. Populist Cator's Plan. Bam Fbancisco, Jan. 3.—The Post's Sacramento special says: A story gained circulation this morning to the effect that Loyd Tevia is to be introduced into ihe senatorial fight. The story was ■tatted by members of the third house who came up f rom San Francisco last night. There is no doubt that a large number of Democratic legislators would welcome such an addition to the list of senatorial candidates. They would like to see money introduced in the fight, and while they will go into their party caucus and abide by its decision, they hope to see the People's party representatives vote as a unit and thereby prevent the elec tion of a senator. According to the plans of those who hope to get Tevis into the contest, his name will not be mentioned until it becomes apparent that White cannot secure votes enough to elect. The banker will then be put forward as a dark horse. T. V. Hator. tbe Populists' choice far senator, has a well defined plan by wbicb he ex pects to be elected. He is an old time Republican, and is working on the members of that party to combine with the Populate and elect him. Steve White appears a trifle agitated. He realizes that a strong movement is on foot to defeat him. He has declared that he has no railroad ties and is op posed to corporations. BLAINE'S CONDITION. The DlstlngulKhed Patient Suffers a Slight Relapse. Washington, Jan. 3.—Blame's condi tion haa taken a backward turn, but the change ia probably not of a character to excite serious apprehension. The pa tient hap heen euffisiriEg from constipa tion the past two days. The report that Biaiue has suffered another relapse and that hia condition has assumed an alarming aepect, is not sustained by inquiries. Ou account of his peculiar organic disease, Blame in his present weuk condition is suscepti ble to the slightest change in the weatiier, while various changes have a depressing effect upon his spirits, but tucae spells are of short duration. Blame, it is said, appeared unusually bright this morning and showed espec ial interest m tlie doings of the members of the lamily. The funnily share the belief of Dr. Johnston that tbe ex-secre tary will maintain the steady improve ment noted in hia condition during the past week. MOB LAW IN TBE SOUTH.

Carlisle Said to Have Accepted the Treasury Portfolio--Murphy the Choice of the New York Dem ocrats for Senator. By the Associated. Pro-s. ] Nbw Yckk, Jan. 3.—An interview with Qol. Daniel Lamont regarding President-elect Cleveland's movements in politics will appear inthe Herald to morrow. It is as follows: "What foundation is there for the published report that Mr. Cleveland iB interfering in the senatorial contest in various state legislatures, and endeavor ing to dictate the election of his own friends?" "It is time," answered Colonel La- the friends of Mr. Cleve land take some notice of this falsehood. It is a falsehood, and was started with malice. I can state authoritatively that Cleveland haa not dictated, interfered, or even suggested the election of any one in states in which there are Democratic legislatures and where contests are be ing made. One of the objects of the charge, I presume, may have been to locate the force of the public objection which Mr. Cleveland made to the elec tion of Mr. Murphy from this state. The impression sought to be conveyed was ;hat he was endeavoring to dictate the personnel of the senate." "Has Mr. Cleveland expreseed him self about these reports?" "He has most emphatically. It was reported that Cleveland was in favor of the election of Mr. Foote iv California, as against Stephsn M. White, because Mr. Foote was a relative of one of Mr. Cleveland's friends. The report is not true, and Mr. Foote's withdrawal quickly followed the publication of the charge. Mr. Cleveland is annoyed by in quiries as to whether he ia doing this thing. I receive many letters ask ing if these reports are true. I may say in mapy atates Mr. Cleveland does not know who the candidates for the senate, are,'except through general report. In' New York Mr. Cleveland states his ob jection to Mr. Murphy, as he has a per fect right to do, but he has not gone be- i vond hi ' r-nnj.tate " , Colonel Lamont was asked if he would tell Mr. Cleveland's attitude toward those who might be looked upon aB having been anti Olevfland men. He shook his head at first, and then asked as to the truth of the story which ib afloat in political circles to the effect that a prominent anti-Cleveland Demo crat from up the state called on Colonel Lamont and asked him about the treat ment the men who opposed Mr. Cleve land would receive, to which Colonel Lamont replied that he did not care to speak of the matter, but he could soy Mr. Cleveland would certainly not forget the men who were in favor of him. As the story wan repeated Colonel Lamont smiled. "That's true," said he. ' I eaid it, and it represents Mr. Cleve land's position." "Is there anything further to be said about his attitude?" waa aeked. "I think," replied the man who is nearer to the president-elect than any other, "that is all; isn't it enough ?" MURPHY IS SOLID. New York Democrats Unanimous for Ills Elootion to the Senat«, Albany, N. V., Jan. 3.—Democratic aentiment, aa gathered here from the leading Democrats of the state of New York, indicates the depire of all for the unanimous election of Edward Murphy, jr., aB United Stateß penator. The pre dicted opposition does not materialize, From all that can be gathered by listen ing to the conversations in the different hotels and other places in Albany, Mr. Murphy is the choice by an overwhelm ing majority. MISSOURI LEGISLATURE. Cockrell Will Be Ke-Eltcted United States Senator. Jefferson City, Mo., Jan. 3.—The legislature of Missiouri will meet tomor row in biennial session, but without any matters of sensational or general inter est to come before it. The senate and hcu?e are both heavily Democratic. In the matter of the United Stateß sen alorehip there is little interest. The Democrats are practically a unit in favor of the incumbent of the expiring term, Francis M. Cockrell. ♦ ■ THE ELECTORAL VOTE. Cleveland Has a Slnjortty of 108 Over Harrison and Weaver. New York. Jan. 3.—The Evening Poet today Bays: The settlement of the Oregon contests makes it possible to give an accurate table of the vote for president as it should be eaat by the electoral college, and which will show: Total number of votea, 414; necessary to a choice, 223; Cleveland's majority, 108. The total vote of the respective candi datea ia aa followa: Cleveland, 276; Harriaou, 144; Weaver, 24. NORTHWESTERN SENATORSHIPS. Tain Carter Gives His Views on Ihe Situation. Washington, Jan. 3.—Chairman Car ter of the Republican national commit tee' waa at the capital today under a subpoena from the judiciary committee of the senate in a charge made against Louis McOomas, who has been nomi nated judge of the supreme court of the District of Columbia. Talking about the probable outcome of the senatorial contests now beginning in tbe northwest, PRICE FIVE CENTS. Mr. Carter said : "In my own state the reeult is still doubtful, but with the chances in favor of the Demo crats. In Wyoming the Democrats and Populists together, have control of the lower branch of the legislature, and there are two contested cases which, I suppose, will be decided against the Republicans, thus securing a majority on joint ballot, which will probably be used to elect a Democratic senator. In California the legisleture is against us. In Kancas and Nebraska there is a chance that we will be able to elect our candidates, but there is considerable doubt about it " MINNESOTA POLITICS. Ths Republican* Having Everything Their Own Way. St. Paul, Minn., Jan. 3 —A caucus of the Republican members of the legisla ture has been called for tomorrow night to select a candidate for United States senator to succeed Cushman K. Davis, whose term expires March 4th.
