DELHI. India. Jan. 6.— The Etate ball
to-night in the palace of the Grand Mogul
proved to ba one of the most attractive
features of the Durbar festivities. The
European dance among the colui^is and
pillars of the palace was a strange arid
wonderful sight. When a. fanfare of sil
\er liurapeis at 10 o'clock announced the
arrival of the Viceroy, Lord Curzon of
Keddleston, the scene was a brilliant one.
l^ady Curzon was gowned In gold brocade
J «nci more a magnificent tiara and neck
lace of diamonds, with four rubles that
had belonged to Klng'Theebaw. Some
SOT guests were present, among them the
Duke of Connaught, Ixird Kitchener and

If by any means that rollcall
should be reduced in time there
are four resolutions now repos
ing in the inner pocket of Sena
tor Leavitt's coat that will dis
tribute the patronage of the Sen
ate and these will be introduced
one after another. The rollcall
upon each is estimated to last
twenty minutes. It will therefore
Now. Dr. George C. Pardee
will be inaugurated Governor to
morrow at i o'clock, which is
twenty minutes after the meeting
of the Senate as fixed by Senator
Leavitt and adopted by the body
of which, he is a member. It
takes twenty minutes to simply
call the roll of the Senate alone,
and by the time the. upper house
of the Legislature has answered
to their several and separate
names as simply being present it
will be necessary to adjourn and
attend the ceremonies that will
mark the induction of the new
Governor into office.
the Senate adopted Leavitt's
time as theirs.
Dr. Pardee will also be able to take con
troj of nearly every State commission, in
cluding the Home for the Feeble-minded
at Glen Ellen, the Deaf and Dumb
and Blind Asylum at Berkeley,
several of the State hospitals-, or
insajia asviuma ¦ and ' the Yosemlte
As several of the Senators to whom this
intimation .was dropped have bills anil
appropriations .that will require friend
ship on the part of the Governor, the hint
was taken very quickly, and from that
moment the value of the Democratic
votes dwindled into insignificance.
But all of the- work In the Senate by
which the postponement of Governor
Gage's nominations has been accom
plished has been done by Senators Leav
itt and Lukens of Alameda County, and
this is regarded as enough to' be called a
hint from tho administration.
The fact having been, established to a
certainty that these nominations will be
i thrown Into the care of the new adminis
tration, speculation is now rife as to
whether any or all of the names will bo
resubmitted to the new Governor, (and if
any are' finally withdrawn which they
w-ill be. It lias been said by some that
tills move was aimed at a certain clergy
man who appears upon the list of ap
pointees, but the indications- are that the
name in question will be resubmitted to
the Senate by Dr. Pardee, .together with
a number of the other appointments. Gov.
ernor Gage has chosen particularly for
tho honorary offices several leaders of the
Republican party/and it can be stated to
night that these names will be resubmit
ted to <he Senate by Governor Pardee.
There are some of the appointments that
will not go back, however, but which ones
jcannot be forecasted with accuracy.
As will be seen by reference to the list
below Governor Pardee can at once lake
absolute control of the State Boara of
Harbor Commissioners of San Francisco
by withdrawing the names of John D;
Mackenzie and John C. Klrkpatrick, both
of whom were named within the lirst two
years. With these two appointments ' In
his power and the term* of Paris Kllburn
shortly, to expire Dr. Parde'e will be the
only Governor since the adoption of the
new.' constitution to begin his administra
tion with complete control of that organi
zation: - - . ;
To all outward appearances Governor
elf ct Pardee has not taken any active
pait in this move to hold up the nomina
tions. The only time that he has come
into the open was for a few moments last
night; when it became evident that Gage
was flirting with the Democratic mem
bers and had secured the support of Sen
ator Curtin of that party. There was fear
for. a few moments in the Pardee forces
that Gage might possibly gain his point,
and then It was that the Governor-elect
'directly intimated to a few Senators that
he would consider it a personal affront if
these nominations were not allowed to
find their way into his administration.
be impossible for the Senate to
take up these appointments un
der any consideration, and as the
Senate lias but twenty minutes to
remain in session before the in
auguration a very few moments
of argument upon any motion
whatever would consume all of
the time that is allotted.

Pardee's own home city if what he will
do in th«; caseof George W. Reed. Reed
has been one of the most bitter and im
placabio enemies of D.r. Pardee in Oak
land. The enmity between the two is more,
than political and is personal. Reed has
been the warm friend of Governor Gage,
who gave him control of the Deaf, Dumb
and Blind Asylum at Berkeley, and one
of the last acts of Governor Gage's ad
ministration was to reappoint Reed to
the directory of that institution. It Is
now within the power of Dr. Pardee to
withdraw Reed's name entirely and the
outcome will be watched with interest in

Valley Commission. This condition
of affairs has been brought about by the
negligence of Governor Gage himself.

appointments and by his delay he has
jeopardized the positions of many of his

Speaker Fisk called out the vote for the
candidates for the two high offices and
the tellers checked off the statements re
ceived by the Secretary of State from the
various counties. At the conclusion of
the canvass Speaker Fisk announced:
"It . appears from the Secretary .of
State's certificate and from the returns
that have been canvassed by the gentle
men appointed by the presiding officers of.
bbth hefuses that George C. Pardee has

The purpose of the joint session was an
nounced and Secretary Brandon of the
Senate read the sections of the Political
Code relating to the' canvassing of the
vote. Lieutenant Governor Neff appoint
ed Senators J. B. Sanford of Uklah and
Lukens of Alameda as tellers for the Sen
ate and Speaker Fisk appointed Assem
blymen N. K. Foster and E. N. Baxter
for the lower house.
MENTO, Jan. 6.— Governor Pardee
will to-morrbw take the oath of
the high office to which he was
recently elected. The formal cere
mony of canvassing the vote for
Governor and Lieutenant Governor
was held this, afternoon in the As
sembly chamber. It was a joint session
of the houses and a roll call developed
the fact that there were thirty-nine Sena
tors and seventy-six Assemblymen pres
ent. Lieutenant Governor Neff sat be
side Speaker Fisk and called the members
to order.
MENTO, Jan. 6.— Grove L. Johnson
of Sacramento had the honor of of
fering the first resolution in the
House at this morning's session. Ad
journment was taken yesterday until 30
o'clock to-day, but it was fully half an
heur after that time before Speaker Flfk
called the Assembly, to order. The Rev.
Dr. H. C. Shoemaker of Sacramento of
fered a brief prayer and a moment later
the second day's business started with a
Johnson's resolution asked that the Sen
ate and the Assembly meet in joint ses
sion in the Assembly chamber at 2 p. m.
for the purpose of being present when the
Speaker of the Assembly opened and pub
lished the returns of the election of the
Governor and the Lieutenant Governor.
Duryca presented a resolution fixing $25
as the amount to be allowed each mem
brr as contingent expense; said expenses
to include postage stamps.
Speaker Flsk announced the appoint
ment of Greer, Goodrich, Barber and Kill
ingsworth on the Inaugural Committee.
A resolution by Johnson, asking for the
appointment of three members, to act
with a like number from the Senate, both
committees to confer with the Sacra
mento citizens who are in charge of the
arrangements for the inaugural ball, found
favor with the members and was passed
without dissent. The Speaker appointed
Houser, Rolley and Copus to represent the
Assembly. V -PI
The committee appointed to wait on the
Governor reported that they had visited
his Excellency! who had informed them
that his message would be sent to the
House at a later date.
A round of applause greeted a resolu
tion by Carter asking that the Assembly
chamber he heated in the early morn
ing so that the members could warm up
to . their work. When the Speaker in
formed Carter that the matter had already
been attended to, Carter replied that \\\
was sorry, as he had expected to be 1
grafted the privilege of appointing an
extra engineer.
Brown of San Mateo presented a resolu
tion asking that three members be ap
pointed as a temporary committee on con
tingent expenses and mileage. The reso
lution was adopted.
The Assembly adjourned until 2 p. m.
DurJng the noon recess the Republican
members of the Assembly went into cau
cus. Tlie only business before tho body
wa3 the making up. of the patronage list.
It was expected that not more than ten
minutes would be consumed in straighten
ing up affairs, for things looked cut and
dried for the slated ones to go through.
Factional differences, however, made
themselves manifest from the* outset and
it lecked for a time as though the caucus
would b« grinding away when the time
arrived for calling tha House for the af
ternoon session.
With the calling to order of the caucus
csrne the first contest. In the order of
business the naming of the chaplain took
precedence. . The Rev. J. V. Stevenson of
Sacramento was chosen, but it required
a second ballot to gain his indorsement.
The Rev. Dr. R'eagor. also of Sacramento,
was his opponent and showed a strength
that created no little surprise. \ The In
troduction of a third candidate iri the per
icn of the Rev. Dr. Beans made th«
Ftrugsle more Interesting. Not that the
latter had a following, but the three votes
that were cast in hia favor were precious
to the two stronger candidates.
Then came the naming of the minute
clerk. Two southerners were pitted
against each other in a battle that showed
considerable political feeling., w. Q.
Wickham, who has for e!x sessions held
the position, was beaten out by Colonel
A A. Wood of Riverside. Wood received
32 votes to WJckham's 25. At the after
noon session of the Assembly the caucus
nominees. were ratified and elected.

RAMENTO. Jan. 6. -The clos
ing hours of (Governor Henry
T. Gage's administration weie
embittered this morning by
the action of the Senate in
declining to listen to the retiring Execu
tive's final message. The lengthy docu
ment was brought into the Senate cham
ber by Secretary Foley and was handed
to the secretary with a. flourish. No
sooner was it In the latter's hand than
Lukens of Alameda. arose and forestalled
its reading by moving that it be printed
in the. Journal and confide rod at some
future time. There were many seconds to
ihe motion and it was carried .without a
•iissenting vote.
Senator Lukens stated after adjourn
ment that his motion was* not intended to
Hipht Governor Gage, but was simply to
.'.ivp time.
The Srnate'p session this morning was
a short one. Messages from the Assem
bly were road and concurred in and a re
< ofs taken until 2 o'clock in order to meet
with the members of the lower houpe
iind canvass the vote for Governor and
Lieutenant Governor.
Jt was shortly after 11 o'clock that Pres
ident pro tom. Flinj. called the member*
:<» order. After roll call and prayer by
the Rev. Q L. MM, Chaplain of the Sen
ate, Smith of Los Angeles moved that
the rules be suspended in order that As
sembly concurrent resolution N"o. 1. relat
ing to the joint meeting of the houses at 2
o'clock Tor the purpose of canvassing the
vote for Governor and Lieutenant Gov
ernor, be considered. The motion
was carried, after which the con
current resolution from the Assem
bly relating to the appointment of
committees to arrange the inaugural
<-«remonics was also adopted. Secretary
Foley then presented the Governors mes
tage and upon motion of Lukens it was
ordered printed .in the journal. An ad
journment was then taken.
The Senate convened at 2 o'clock this
Afternoon and at the conclusion of the roll
call the members went in a body to the
Assembly chamber to attend the joint
session to canvass the vote for Governor
and Lieutenant Governor. Upon return
ing to their chamber Senator Leavitt an
nounced that a caucus of Republican Sen
ators would be held immediately after
adjournment for the purpose of agree
ing upon patronage.
At the request of Senator Sanford tlie
rui?s wete temporarily suspended for re
ceivng a resolution relative to the death
of Senator John Henry SeweH o f Mendp
cino County. The resolution requested
tlie appointment of a committee, com
posed of three Senators and three Assem
blymen, to draw up resolutions of respect
to the memory of Senator Scwell. Lieu

wrtSTa resolution, direr-ting the State Con
troller to draw his warrants in favor of
members and attaches of the Senate, was
referred to the committee. I'pon motion
of Belshaw an adjournment was taken
until 12:4'i p. m . to-morrow.
The remainder of the day was devoted
chiefly by the solons to disposing of tha
legislative patronage. A number of the
country members were more or less In
different in the matter and for a tlmo
their share of the spoHs went a-begging.

sound swept through, the chamber. In
which the indignant protest3 of the de

Just what the message contained no
body knew at the time and mighty few
seemed to care, for it had been coolly
swept aside without even the scant cour
