By the Associated Press.
Sacbamknto, Jan. 3.—Governor Mark

possible legislation at this time.

years by the county assessor, instead of
by county and municipal assessors, as
now conducted.
A just and equitable collection of rail

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

the matter by tbe 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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.

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
"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 ?"
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.
Cockrell Will Be Ke-Eltcted United

Jefferson City, Mo., Jan. 3.—The
legislature of Missiouri will meet tomor

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.

Tain Carter Gives His Views on Ihe
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,
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 "
