MITCHELL'S ELECTION SUBJECT
OF A CONTEST
QUIEROLA AFTER SAVAGE
The Push Ready to Make Peace on Any
Terras—Dr. Hill to Be Re-Elected
Last night tt appeared as If the major
differences in the local Democracy would
be so adjusted today that there would not
be much friction. The push finds itself in
such a minority that it Is very much like
Sagasta—lt can only throw itself upon the
mercy of the victors and accept such terms
as are offered. There are said to be two
raindldates for the chairmanship, Judge
A. M. Stephens and R. F. Del Valle. Judg"
Stephens seemed yesterday to have the
running his own way. and even the push
leaders admitted thnt he would be the man
and said that they would support htm.
There was some talk about contesting
the right of John W. Mitchell to lake his
sent. He was duly elected with Mr. Ander
ton on a tie, and. as the latter is his friend,
Mr. Mitchell was at once given his proxy.
Last evening G. W. Albright filed a con
test, however, alleging that many of those
who voted for Mitchell were Republicans;
that when asked if they were Democrats,
they responded: "Yes, for today," and giv
ing other grounds.
Nlc Quierola will also contest the seat of
Tom Savage, on the ground that the latter
had not been a resident of the Einhth ward
for the required thirty days before the elec
tion. Savage asserts that he did not lose
his residence by his trip to the Klondike.
N. T. Powell will alno contest the ticket
returned on Monday night as elected from
Ihe Twenty-first precinct, on the ground
that, while only eight votes were cast and
recorded by the Judges, when the box was
opened there were found to be 04 votes in
addition, which had been "stuffed." He
and his assioc'ates have certificates from
five of the eight regular voters that they
are the ones elected, nnd Chairman Hill
will probably so decide. The names of the
ones to be seated are N. T. Powell. Charles
Kestner, L. P. Stephens. 11. D.
Francis Ireland and K. T. Paulln. The
friends of Mitchell and Savage and others
who may be barred from taklnig their seats
asserted yesterdny afternoon that. If they
were not admitted, a large number of the
delegates would refuse to participate In the
proceedings, the idea being that a walk-out
would ensue, and posslhly two conventions
would result, though this was not definitely

GAGE, WATERS, CLARK
"DE ATE" HAD TO SCRAP BUT
JAMES GOT THERE
WAS AS EASY AS A, B, C
And X. Y. Z. Parker and Billy Dunn
Won Hands Down—General
Grin of Glee
The Republican caucuses were held last
night ln this city. In response to Ihe trun
dle of the machine a solid delegation was
nominated for Henry T. Gage for govern
or, R. J. Waters for congress and Judge
W. H. Clark for the supreme bench. The
only contest of consequence was ln the
Eighth, and when too many statesmen
yearned for the warm climate of Sacra
mento, but the ticket on whtch was "Jim"
Meredith won after bloodthirsty threats
and an exciting ensemble.
The vote* was the largest known in Re
publican oaususes, notwithstanding the
fact there was no opposition to any of the
three candidates named.
"Hilly" Dunn and Alpha Beta Gamma
Delta Barker appeared to have charge of
the "practical politics." and they dis
charged their duties to perfection, no hard
task, as they had no organized opposition.
The First Ward voters marched up like
men. and voted the straight ticket provided
for them by Frank Flint.
The Second Warders met at Temperance
Temple. Here, as elsewhere, the magnan
imous withdrawal of MeLaehlan went far
toward soothing the troubled Waters.
In the Third Ward the course of true pol
itics did not run smooth. It was whispered
that Billy Dunn had taken a father
ly Interest ln the affairs of that district,
although he Is not a member of It. and had
conspired to break up the family circle ar
ranged by the legitimate bosses (for a Re
publican party without bosses would be
a misnomer). Dr. W. G. Cochran and W.
Q Spence, who are said to have been Mr.
Dunn's entering wedges, fell far short of
The Fourth Ward caucusers caucused
very peacefully, as did those of the Fifth,
in which district Waters and Gage both
live. Here the predestined ticket was
elected by Calvanistic acclamation. The
same, white-winged dove fluttered over the
lents of the Sixth.
Down ln the Seventh Ward the parties
who got up the printed ticket committed
the egregious blunder of omitting from the
list the name of Tommy Strohm. the pride
of the Seventh. His friends resented this,
anil insisted on a correction, greatly to the
detriment of C. J. Kubach'B chances of
going to the convention.
Uut it was in the Eighth that the tun
came ln. Nelson, the committeeman who
called the meeting to order, called for nom
inations for chairman, and as soon as he
heard the name of Chas. R. Craig declared
that gentleman elected without the trilling
formality of a vote.
The secretary was "elected" In the snmc
unanimous manner. In tills work may be

with difficulty, and after the meeting was

A BRUTAL HUSBAND
He Beats and Chokes His Delicate
James Gray Is In the city prison with the
dual charge of drunkenness and battery
against him. Gray's wife has been em
ployed as a waitress, and has been support
ing her husband, who seems to be a worth
less fellow generally Although she Is in a
delicate condition, Gray has not showed
her any consideration, but persists in abus
ing her on various occasions. He went to
her home, at 712 Ms East First street, and
proceeded to show his manly strength by
beating and choking her. Mrs. King, the
landlady, heard the woman's cries, and
went Into the room, but Gray started to at
tack her also. Mrs. King retreate d to her
own room, where she armed herself, and
then defied the brute. Gray retained suf
ficient discretion to keep his hands off the
Mrs. King blew the police whistle, and
Officer Fay responded. As soon as the of
ficer went into the room Gray bolted
through the back way. Jumped a couple of
fences, ran through the Hewitt school
yard, over on to Second street. Thence
Gray ran to Rose street, through a yard,
and hid ln an outhouse. Fay followed af
ter the fieetfooted scoundrel, and routed
him from his temporary hiding place.
Gray then scaled a high fence.and, though
the officer threatened to shoot, did not stop
his flight. He finally ran over onto First
street and took refuge in the rear room of
a butcher shop at 604 East First street,
where Officer Fay placed him under arrest.
Mrs. Gray had an abrasion over the right
eye, her face had also been bruised, and
her throat scratched during the struggl,-.
The shock was so severe to the woman
that It Is feared serious results may occur.
No charge was brought against Gray'ye?
terday, but he will probably be prosecuted
today if his wife ca,n be brought into court.

C. C. Monagh'an, chief consul of the
Southern California division of the L. A.W.,

has bpen so taken up with important legal
business that 1 have had no time to devote
io political matters. My present visit to
San Francisco is due solely to the necessity
for my presence here In connection with
some legal business of importance. I shall
return to T.os Angeles tomorrow morning or
tomorrow afternoon at the latest. I wish
to have It understood that my visit has
nothing to do with politics in any way."
Concerning Ihe statement that he would
go to the state convention as the chairman
of the I.os Angeles delegation and would
place Judge Magulre In nomination for gov
ernor. Senator had this to say:
"I do not even know whether or not I
shall attend the convention, and there has
certainly been nothing said to me about my
liplng the chairman of the Los Angeles dele
gation. It is my (h sire to attend the con
vention, and 1 shall certainly do so if I can
so arrange my private affairs as to make
my presence in Sacramento possible.
"As to any understanding that I shall
place Judge Magulre in nomination for
governor, there Is none. If lam present at
the convention 1 shall certainly give my
self the pleasure of saying something In
behalf of Magulre. Should I he selected to
make the nominating speech I would be
particularly gratified, as the judge and I
have been friends from childhood, and I
have for him a very high regard. No such
arrangements have been made, however,
and", ;is I said before. Ido not even know
whether I will be able to attend the con
vention. I certainly think that Magulre
will receive the nomination, as there seemr
no opposition to him, and I also think th,.t
it he is nominated he will be elected. He
has made an enviable record ln congress
and stands high in the estimation of the
people of California.
"Concerning the present position of the
Democratic party regarding fusion, I must
beg to be excused from making any state
ment, for the reason that I am not familiar
with all of the facts. As an abstract propo
sition, I still hold to the views publicly ex
pressed by myself and others many months
ago. That Is to soy. I am in favor of the
co-operation of all forces favoring free sil
ver. As to the manner In which fusion was
brought ahout in this state, or the basis
upon which it was arranged, I have noth
ing to say, because I am not familiar with
the facts. Neither am I prepared to say
whether I think It advisable for the Demo
cratic party to nominate a straight Demo
cratic ticket. As I have said, the present
status of this maticr Is not familiar to me,
and I am. therefore, not qualified to ex
press an opinion."
Concerning the annexation of the Ha
waiian islands and the effect of such action
upon the future of the country. Senator
White was almost as non-committal as he
was about Democratic politics.
"The stand taken by me on the Hawai
ian question," he said, "Is well known to
every one. I am not prepared to say that
there was not a majority of the members
of congress in favor of annexation, but I
do think that it would have been defeated
had it not been for the sentiment engen
dered by the conditions arising from our
present war with Spain. What my future
course win be I am not at this time pre
pared to say. The annexation of the Islands
is an accomplished fact—a fact that has es
tablished a precedent that must necessarily
cTiange the entire foreign policy of this
government. The eiuestion of the limits and
extent of this new policy is one that should
be given ;he very gravest thought, for on It
depends, ln a great measure, our future as
a nation. The mere fact of the acquisition
of the Hawaiian Islands would not of Itseif
be of very grant importance were it not for
Ihe additional fact that their acquisition
establishes a precedent that at once and for
all time affects our standing among the na
tions of the world. ***
To a representative of the Examiner Sen
ator White said that in his opinion Con
gressman Magulre will be nominated and
elected governor of this state.

intelligent people recognize that they are
threatened by this deadly disease, but take
no precaution* against it.
Consumption approaches its victim step
by step. First there is a little "out of
sorts " feeling, the digestion isn't just right,
the appetite falls off, the liver is inactive,
the assimilation of the life-giving elements
of the food is imperfect, the blood gets im
pure and the body is improperly nourished.
These conditions get worse and worse. The
heart through the arterial system is pump
ing thin, poisonous blood into every organ
of the body. The organs that are inherently
weakest break down first. Ordinarily the
lungs. As the last straw that breaks the
camel's back comes a cold, however slight.
This, with the accompanying cough, com
pletes the work and an.invasion of the germs
of consumption follows. Dr. Pierces Gold
en Medical Discovery cures 98 per cent, of
all cases of consumption. It corrects the
conditions that lead up to it. It is the great
est blood-maker and flesh-builder known.
K. C. McLln, Esq., of Kempsville, Princess
Anne Co., Va., writes: "When I commenced
taking your ' Discovery' I was very low with a
cough, and at times spit up much blood. I was
not able to do the least work, hut most of the
time wai* in bed. I was all run-down, very weak,
my head was dizxy. and I was extremely des
pondent The first bottle I took did not seem to
do me much good, hut I had faith in it and con
tinued using it until I had taken fifteen bottles,
and vow 1 do not look nor feel like the same man
I was one year ago. People are astonished, and
say, ' well, last year this time I would not have
thought that you would be living now.' X can
thankfully say I am entirely cured of a diaeaie
which, but for your wonderful' Discovery, * would
have resulted tn my death.'*
