MR. WHITE RETURNS. An Interview on Matters of Local Moment. THE NEW CHASTER DISCUSSED. The Chae Chan Pin* Case —The Public Priutership—The Last State Legislature. Hon. S. M. White, Lieutenant-Gover nor of the State, returned to town yes terday morning from his Washington trip, whither he went to present the Chae Chan Ping case before the Supreme Court of the United States. A Hbrald man found the illustrious Senator in his offices during the course of the after noon, and the request for an interview was readily granted, in spite of the fact that Mr. White was literally besieged by callers, some of whom were friends wel coming him back home again, though many were clients, anxious to consult him on business matters. The first topic brought under discus sion was as to the legality of the new City Charter. "I was away from here at the time when all of the objections to it were set forth," said Mr. Wnite, "but SB I understand it there are only two im portant reasons for its rejection. The first is a proposition that the Charter should have gone through the Legisla ture as a bill and have been there read three times. Ido not think that there is anything in this. The Constitution provides a particular mode cf approving a new Charter, and that has been done. The Legislature hag no power to enact a Charter. A Charter is made by the peo ple, subject to legislative approval, and the Governor has nothing to do with it. The position of the Legislature when a Charter is before it is like tbat of the Governor regarding a bill, with the ex ception that the legislative veto is con clusive, whereas that of the Governor can be overridden by a two-thirds vote." "Now as to the other main head where it is claimed that the new Charter is un constitutional because various provisions in it are in conflict with the Constitution. I think that, as a whole, it is valid, though parts of it will probably not stand. This, however, must be de termined in actions referring to those specific parte. Tbe whole instrument cannot be declared invalid simply be cause parts of it may be illegal. I still, however, adhere to my original view tbat the adoption of the Charter was «i mis take, though when it came up to Sacra mento I did all in my power to get it through the Legislature. But I never did think that the people of Los Angeles were wise in voting for it, for the reason that it bad been before excepted to on several occasions." THK CHAE CHAN PINQ CASE. The conversation then turned on to Mr. White's trip to Washington in con nection with the Chae Chan Ping case. "Attorney-General Johnson, Itlr. J. F. Swift, Solicitor-General Jenks and my self argued the case on behalf of Califor nia," said Mr. White, "and Governor Hoadley, formerly of Ohio, and Judge James C. Carter, two of the ablest at torneys st the New York bar, prsented it on behalf of the Chinese. Seven Judges were present, the vacancies being caused by the absence of Judge Matthews, deceased, and Judge Bradley, who was ill. The Court listened at tentively to all the arguments, snd the questions asked, so far as those present were able to gather, in dicated a view favorable to our side, though of course there were no positive suggestions to warrant this idea. A decision in the matter is looked for in the course of a couple of weeks. The arguments occupied parts of two days, and the order of speaking was as follows: Hoadley opened for the Chinese, then came Mr. Johnson for California, I was next, Mr. Jenks followed, Mr. Swift then closed our side of the affair and Judge Carter closed for the opposition. The question at issue is whether or not the Scott Exclusion Act is valid in so far as it declared void all certificates issued under previous acts. The particular Chinaman whose case is being tested had received a certificate and had gone to China. While on bis way back to America the Scott act was passed and be claimed that as to him it was ineffectual, aa by virtue of hia certificate he had made a contract with this Government under which he had a right to land. It is an important matter to decide, for there are between 20,000 and 30,000 cer tificated Chinamen waiting to come back if the result be favorable to them. Some place the number as high as 50,000." THE PUBLIC PRINTERSHIP. "As you have just returned from Wash ington, you probubly can give Los Ange les an idea as to how the fight for the Public Printership is going," suggested the Herald man. "When I was there, the indications were that Osborne would get it," was the reply. "He has at his back all of the California delegation, and seems to have many friends in other quarters. What .effect this delay as regards th*> ap pointment may have, though, I do not kaow." "Were you long in the Capital City?" was the question. "Well, I was delayed there a,week on account of the death of Judge Matthews, for the Supreme Court took a recess to attend hia funeral at Cincinnati. From Washington I went to New York, Boston and as far north as London, Canada. Tnen I went to Philadelphia, where my wife now is and will remain a week or so longer. T came home by the Denver and Rio Grande Road, via Ogden, stop ping over at Sacramento, so as to put my final certificate to the minutes of the Sen ate Journal." THE QUARANTINE BILL. "How did the trouble regarding the Cattle Quarantine bill come about?" asted the scribe. "It was a Senate bill, and was sent from there to the House. Now if it failed to pars the lower body it should have been reported back to tbe Senate as 'failed to paes.' Instead of this being done, however, it was reported back as having pasted, and was accordingly or dered for enrollment. It then went to the Governor, and he signed it. Of coarse it was a grievous error to have handled it in such a way, but the mis tdte cccJT.d in the confusion of the list two days. There were between 700 nod 800 hills on file, all of which were being called up at a lively rate, and in the tush \be error doubtless occurred. It however, been set back now, and last week the State Board of Health treated it as invalid." THE LAST SESSION. "How about the Waterman-Boruck scandal ?" was tbe question. "It is a matter that I do not feel abJe to discose now," was the response, 'as it involves so many propositions that (should be taken up one by one. The | LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD SUNDAY MORNING, APRIL 21, 1889. position of a Governor under such cir cumstances as those in question is a very trying one, as it is hard to satisfy every body and keep one's temper. _ 1 was not present at the closing session of the Legislature, which I see was attacked so vigorously by one of the Bacrainento papers, but I am certain tbat it was not so black as it is painted. While I admit that many of the members of the late Legislature were far from what they might have been, still I think that the Legislature was as good as the previous one. There is one thing about it, there was more work done by it than by any of its predecessors. THK APPROPRIATIONS. "Now, as to the appropriations, about which there has been such violent decla mation. Their increase was caused by the new institutions, such as the insane asylum for Southern California, as well as one for the not them part of the State, and also the Boys' Reform School. My view of tbe matter was that there was a ■good opportunity to get a good appropria tion for Southern California, and that it was, therefore, an excellent thing to in crease the tax levy. We will get a rea sonable share of the result, which will go inte public improvements and also give employment to a large number of people. The contingent expenses were, however, as they always are, too large, and even reckless. "I see that a good many are disposed to cavil even at the $10,000 for the gym nasium for the Normal School, but it must be remembered that we contributa one-tenth of the entire money raised by the Srate —we did so last year, in this county alone. "Some very good laws were passed by the Legislature. One is an amendment to the Civil Code providing that a deed to a married woman shall be presumed, as between her and an innocent pur chaser, to convey the estate to her as her separate property. Heretofore, even when the deed has recited this special feature about separate property, it has been liable to attack on the grounds of being community estate. This has 1 caused a good deal of trouble in real 1 estate quarters, especially in Los Angeles ' county, and through it many titles have ■ been found to be defective." | THK NBW COUNTY. "What do you think of the new Orange \ county?" asked the reporter, in con | elusion. "I was opposed to the separation be cause I believed it was obnoxious to my | constituents, and I, therefore, felt it my ' duty to vote against tbe change. Now that the bill has passed, however, it be ! comes the business exclusively of the ' people in the proposed new county, and they should treat it as they deem fit." Steamer Departures.
