tion, Timothy Guy Phelps of San Mateo
introduced the following resolution :
"The greatness of a state is in the vir
tue of lis citizens, and this is prompted
by cherishing honorably the memory ol
the dead, wbo, living, wrought or fought
for the common good.
"Therefore, tho party council
tenting the political principle of the
majority, and in a-higher sense, ail the
people, expresses for itaeli nnd those
whom it represents the pensoof bereave
ment tbat nnpresnes the a'ate in the
death of Lelund Stanford, the first Re
publican governor and the foremost citi
zen of California, who has been taken
from ue Bince the last meeting of our
party in convention.'
"All the thoughtful people of this
commonwealth remember his high hope
for ite advancement, and his unfailing
faith in the genius ol its people. We
honor him for au uptight life, bis confi
dence in bis fellow-men nnd hia human
ity, and for hia wiso and honorable ad
ministration of the state's greatest
public truet; for his broad and tolerant
spirit to even his political antagonists,
remembering that they were his feliow
citizens, ana for the final bestowal of his
great fortune upon that kind of educa
tion which makes best citizens by mak
ing the most independent men, thereby
refreshing the strength of the state for
ever at the aflluent lountain of practical
learning.
"Thia convention tenders to hia widow
and houaehold its sympathy and assur
ance that in all the practical acts of hia
lite the motive waa helpfulness to others
and honorable to himself.
"It ie ordered that a copy of these
aentimenta be certified by the secretary
of thia convention and forwarded to
Mra. Stanford."
Mr. Fhelpa obtained the floor and
eulogized the late Senator Stanford in
high terms. He dwelt particularly
npon Stanford's record its governor and
upon his philanthropy, particularly in
reference to the institution of the Stan
ford university.
Morehouse of Santa Clara endorsed
Ma. Phelps' remarks and referred direct
to the "cowardly, dastardly and unwar
ranted" attack recently made upon the
senator by Representative Geary, and
he asked that Geary be rebuked by the
rising silent vote of the convention.
At tbe bebeat of the chairman, tbe
delegatee aroßO as one man and the reso
lution was declared unanimously
adopted.
A ISOr FOR THE COLORED VOTER.
A colored delegate from Los Angeles
then sent forward a resolution declaring
that the colored citizene of California
should be recognized in the distribution
cf appointive etate offices. The chair
man annennced that tbe resolution was
not in order unless with the unanimoua
consent of tbe convention. The author
of the resolution misunderstood him
and started to advocate its merits. A
little laughter ensued, but a kindly dis
posed delegate asked tbat tbe conven
tion suspend the order of business and
consider the resolution. It was ao or
dered and the resolution waa carried
with a cheer.
BLENNERHASBET SQUELCHED.
Blennerbaaeet of Tehama who made
the sensational faux pae yesterday
started to take advantage of the general
good humor of the convention to get in
a resolution himself, and he aent it up
to the secretary, but there were loud
calls for the regular order and tbe chair
promptly declared tbat nominations for
secretary of state waß tbe next business
of the convention. Mr. Blennerhseeet
took back hiß resolution unread.
BROWN FOR SECRETARY CF tTATB.
A youthful looking delegate from San
Francisco took the platform and in a
few well-chosen words, nominated L, 11.
Brown of San Franciaco, present clerk
of the supreme oourt. ft waa expected
that a fight would be made by E. G.
Waite, the incumbent. But hia name
was not mentioned. Brown waß nom
inated by acclamation, lie appeared
and gave the convention a chance to
cheer at a few remarks of thanks.
CONTROLLER COLGAN RENOMINATED.
The nomination for controller wae
likewise speedily disposed of. E. P.
C'olgan of Sonoma, tbe incumbent, was
chosen by acclamation.
RADCLIFFE FOR TREASURER.
The first contest of tbe afternoon wbb
over the treasurership. Three nominees
were voted for —Henry Hook of Contra
Costa. H. G. Oatrander of Merced and
Levi Radcliffe of San Luis Obispo. The
word was passed around that Radcliffe
bad the support of Colonel Burcs and
the San Francisco delegation. Just as
the roll was about to be called a dele
gate with • technical turn of mind
called the attention of the chairman to
the fact that the candidates had not
been called upon to show themselvee,
according to rule. The three candi
dates, therefore, made bows to tbe con
vention and spoke briefly. Rodcllii'e re
ceived the nomination on the first bal
lot, the vote resulting: Radclifl'e, 448;
Ostrander, 200; Hook, 197.
FITZGERALD FOR ATTORNEY-GENERAL.
A lively contest develooed over the
ftttorney-generaUhip. The candidates
were Judge W. F. Fitzgerald of San
Francisco, now on the supreme bench;
Thomas L. Carothers of Mendocino and
Oregon Sanders.
The nominating speeches were nu
merous and too many tiresome, ao that
an impatient delegate finally moved
the nominations cioee. The chairman
was about to put the motion when
Urury Malone of San Franciaco asked
the indulgence of the convention for a
few remarka. There were many noisy
demands for roll call and howls oi "No!
No 1" but Mr. Malone persisted and made
a neat little speech in behalf of Fitz
terald and the Twenty-eighth district,
which he declared cast more votea with
less voters than any district in the state,
md had also raiaed more money and
iistiibuted it for the public good thuc
my other.
The candidates were then called for
md Oregon Sandere came forward. Mr.
Sanders was niihily sarcastic and inti
mated that the convention was not here
lo deliberate and decide, but to reginteJ
l decree already made daya, perhaps
weeks, ago. He alao paid a high tribute
.o Judge de Haven, beaten for supreme
udge tuiß morning, and remarked that
I defeated, aB he expected to be, he
roaid be in remarkably to > company,
[be discouraged candidate also eulo
tised Estee, and looking at Colonel
Hums' immediate followers, shook his
iuger in the air and declared:
"1 was his iriend when many a man
rearing a red oadge in this convention
t:is hia implacable foe."
Of course thore were cheers.
Carothers appealed to the Sun Fran
ieco delegation to do justice to North
in California, end Fitzgerald endorsed
he platform heartily. It was under
took tbii! Fitzgerald had the united
upport of the San Fruncisco delegation,
'he voting began and Oaiotbers led,
iut when San Francteco was ruaciied
he first district callod out solid lor
'itzgerald. Thero was cheers and
tughter and some one crowed "cuckoo."
All San Franciaco voted for Fitzgerald
with the exception of one vote for San
ders.
When the call wns concluded many
delegations who had voted for Sanden
\the total wae 100) changed to Carothers.
But it did no good, Fitzgerald already
had enough. The vota refulte.l: Fitz
gerald 452, Carothers .113, Sanders 17.
WRIGHT FOR SURVEYOR GENERAL.
The closest and most exciting tight of
the day was over the su-voyor general
ship. Tho candidate whom San Fran
cisco intended to support was M. J.
Wright, of Tulare, The other candi
dates were Cuarles E. Uren of Nevada
and L. B. Aver ot Unite. Judge Davis of
Amador, in advocating the claims of
Uren. made a point which aroused ap
plause in tiie lobby.
"I give notice." cried Davis, "that the
San Francisco delegation will not vote
| for Uren."
Judge Davis olso called attention to
. the (act that no candidate had yet been
I named who hailed irom north of Sacra-
I mento.
The candidates briefly addressed the
convention, and tiie roll was called. As
the Bt.l] proceeded it waa evident that
the contest would be very close. The
usual laughter and joera arose when the
hrst San Fruncisco vote lor Wright waa
announced. At the close of the call,
when it appeared to be doubtful if there
waa a choice, many counties asked to
have their votea changed from Ayer to
Uren. But Santa Clara changed from
Ayer to Wright and settled the contest
in the Tulare man's favor. The final
vote was: Wright,4sß; L T rou,3o2; Ayer,
56.
The San Franciaco delegation had
again voted for the winner.
TROW WARD UKTS THERE.
Forcleik of the supreme court, t'.ie
nominees were Louis Jacobs of San
Francisco, T. 11. Ward of Los Angeles,
George W. Root of San Benito. The
convention had apparently eeen all tbe
candidates it wanted uud dispensed
with that formal!?;. Dpapite San Fran
ciaco's support tbe roll call ended with
Jacobs' total only about 300. Then the
usual changea from the weakest to the
strongest began. Delegation after dele
gation went from Root to Jacobs until
the 425 mark w&b finally passed, amid
great cheers. Many votes were, bow
ever, changed from Root to Ward.
John P. Jackson waa iv the chair. The
convention was in great confusion,
which was greatly heightened by the
uncertainty of the delegatee aa to the
result. The delegates rapidly degener
ated into a howling mob. Tbe chair
man hammered and yelled in vain for
order, but the tumult only increased.
At the height of the uproar he an
nounced the vote.
A delegate finally cried excitedly for
Knight, and the cry waa taken up all
over the convention. Tho chairman
finally appeared, assumed the gavel and
belched out "Order! Sit down I Take
your scats! Act like meal Order!
Order! Order!" and he fiually Btilled
the etorm. Then a delegate secured re
cognition and announced a change from
Root to Ward. Cheers followed. The
chairman excitedly pounded with his
gavel aud said:
"It is too late; the vote has been an
nounced."
Then chaos reigned again. A tremen
dous yell of "No! No!" arose. The
cbair again announced the vote as fol
lows: Jacobs, 4-14; Waid, 271; Root,
132.
Delegates again howled for recogni
tion.
"Too late; the vote has been de
clared," cried the chairman.
Delegates jumped upon chairs, waved
hats and canes and veiled like mad
men. A hundred wanted recognition at
once. The chair refused to tee any. The
noiae finally partially subsided and Gos
per of Lob Angelea declared:
"There is but one recourse. It was
out of order for tbe acting chairman to
declare a vole before it waa honestly ob
tained. I therefore appeal from the de
cision of tbe cbair."
Knight paid no attention to the ap
peal. The riot broke locae again.
"Sit down; sit down; keep still; be
have!" bowled the chairman. "I won't
recognize a man on God's footstool until
you ait down."
Part of the Loa Angelea delegation
arose end loft the convention. Tbe
etorm eubßided again aud Galuraith of
Santa Cruz obtained the door.
"This is a Bnap judgment," cried be,
"It ie not right. 1 appeal from the de
cision of the cbair."
Wild cries oi approval greeted the
motion.
Gosper of Los Angeles moved to re
consider. Finally Dorn of San Franc
isco arose and eaid :
"I want to facilitate business. On be
half of Mr. Jacobs, 1 ask for another
roil call."
And this is the way it was settled.
The chair ordered the secretary to call
the roll. The Los Angeles delegates
came back. The vote waß exceedingly
close. San Francieco gave Jacobs a
solid vote, and sent him away ahead.
But the county delegations generally
voted for Ward, and he slowly gained on
and passed the San Francisco man and
was nominated. The vote was: Ward,
430; Jacobß, 414. Wild cheere broke
forth from the friends of Ward, particu
larly Loa Angeles. It was some mo
ments before the chair could reatore
order. It was the first break in the
alleged "elato." The vote waa made
unanimoua.
BLACK FOR SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT.
S. T. Black of Ventura, J. A. Anuer
eon of Ban Franciaco and P. M. Fieher of
Alameda were the candidates for super
intendent of public instruction. The
contest was clone. Black led in tbe
vote.
At tbe close of the roll call, while
many voteß were being changed from
Fisher to Anderson, a very laughable
incident occurred. An old man from
Solano long vainly tried to catch the
chairrnan'ti eye. But Knight peremp
torily ordered him to go back from the
aisle to hia delegation. The old fellow
challenged Soiano's vote, which waa for
Bluett, and wanted to be counted for An
derson.
Gen. 8. L. Hart protested loudly that
tbe delegate bad a right to be heard, and
finally he came forward and mounted
tbe platform and said:
"Gentlemen, I'll tell you why I want
to vole for Anderson —I aaw a young
lady today and ehe told me—"
That's as far us ho got. The conven
tion howled with laughter, and the rest
of the old gentleman's explantion was
drowned out.
Black was nominated by the following
vote: Black, 515; Anderson, 283;
Fisher, 0.
JOHNSON FOB STATE printer.
Robert Nixou of Siskiyou, A. J. John
pon of Sacrameuto, Scipio Craig of San
Bernardino aud W. B. Thorpe of Placer
wore nominated for atate printer. John
eon was nominated, the vote resulting:
Johnson, .7J4; Nixon, 48; Craig, 05;
Toorpe, 41. Johnson waa therefore
nominated.

REPUBLICAN PLATFORM.
Soma <.'hang«< In th* Knuolutlons Oris
finally Iteport ..d.
San Francisco, June 21.—The Repub
lican platlo m, as adopted at Sacramen
to, ie difl'e cut from the copy furnished
the press yesterday in the following
particulara:
Firet—The vilicultural plank, com
mencing "We recognize in thia state the
large and increasing product of the
orchards and the vine," should be
atricken out altogether, as it waa not
submitted to the convention aa original
ly intended.
Second—The honest electione plank,
commencing, "We denounce the repeal
by this Democratic congress of the na
tional election laws," should be atricken
out and the following substituted :
"Since the organization of the Repub
lican party, it has been in favor of a free
ballot and an honest count at all elect
ions, wherever held. Its policy has
ever been that every voter, no mattor
i what hie color or hia condition in life,
ebculd be permitted to freely exercise
the right of suffrage, and tbat hia vote,
no matter for what party or candidate it
might bave been cast, should be conn t
ed exactly as he had given it. The
sanctity of the ballot box ia the founda
tion of American institutions aud Amer
ican liberty. Too many safeguards can
not be thrown around this fountain
whence flows the entire government of
all tbe sixty-five millioue of people that
march beneath the stars and etripes.
We therefore denounce the action of the
D.mecratic congress and the Demo
cratic president in repealing the federal
eloction lawa. as a wicked purrer.der to
those who rule the south by force and
violence, and who have sought'to rule
the north by fraud and corruption at
the ballot box."
Third—The first sentence of thenatur
atization plunk should be stricken out
and the following substituted: "We
are in favor of amending our naturaliza
tion lawa so that no one can be made a
citizen who ia not of good repute and
who can Dot read and write the rCngliah
language." The other part of the nat
uralization plank remains as originally
given.
The platform, as originally drawn, was
given to the Associated Press in Sacra
mento on Tuesday afternoon last, and it
waa sent here by express. The platform
contained several alterations and a list
ol these alterations and corrections was
given to our representative in Sacra
mento by the chairman of the commit
tee on Wednesday morning and the list
was telegraped here Wednesday morn
ing, However, the new list ac given by
tbe chairman did not contain tho
changes mentioned above, and the er
rora were not discovered until the San
Fruncisco papers containing the platform
reached Sacramento today.

Hon. T. §, Vnrrrni 1 ..und Dead In Bed
Mt Hacntnivnlo*
Sacramento, Jane 21. — Chairman
Knight thia afternoon announced, in af
fecting language, the death of Delegate
T. J. Carran of Loa Angelee, while at
tending the Republican etate conven
tion. Resolutions of condolence to the
widow were introduced and adopted by
a rising vote. During tbie incident, for
the first time during Ihe whole conven
tion, entire silence prevailed.
Mr. Carran was the leader of what
was known as the "kicker faction" of
the Los Angelea delegation. It wbb he
who nominated Hon. Henry T. Hazard
for congress (contrary to the latter's
wish), nnd he was expected to make the
nominating speech for Judge McKinley
for supreme court justice. Failing to
appear at the convention yeaterday
morning, Frank House went to his room
in the Glunie blcck in the afternoon, and
found him dead in bed. Wheu laat seen
alive at midnight, when he retired, he
seemed in perfect health. Heart disease
apparently carried him off while he
I slept. The announcement of bio sudden
death spread a gloom over the conven
tion, on the floor of which ha had been a
prominent figure and a popular favorite.
Mr. Carran came to Los Angeles from
- Cleveland, ()., six or seven years ago.
Previous to coming here he was a mem
ber of the Ohio etate senate, and aoon
after locating in Los Angelea he became
prominent in local politics. He waa
chairman of the Republican county cen
tral committee several years ago. presi
dent of the Union league, and played a
conepicuous part in nearly all the party
councils. He stood high as a member of
the bsr and a citizen.
Tbe news of his death caused profound
regret in thia city, and much sympathy
was expreeeed far his family, who reside
here. He was the father of Mrs. Robert
Widney. <

he waa gory at the nose and mbu'h.
