and substituted a motion to have the
committee report in the matter on nixt
Monday. Leavitt also objected to this,
but Devlin would not brook delay. He
said he did not want to have his resolu
tion smothered in committee. Upon a
vote being taken it was decided to have
the committee report on n.?xt.
Many of the members are opposed to
advising our Senators in Congress hnw
to vote in the matter. Devlin wanes
them to vote against the ratification •<£
tho proposed treaty with Cuba. He
claims that it is diametrically - oppose!
to the interests of this State: '
It is the intention of the Republican
members of. the Senate to decide in
caucus whether Devlin's resolution shall
be adopted. Several members have
signed a call .for a caucus which may
be held to-morrow night. The advan
tage of such a plan is that in caucus
the members will have an opportunity
to say what they plea&e without fear
of their speeches being made public, and
those who are in favor of the resolution
will be obliged to vote against it if a
majority of the caucus decides that it
should not be adopted. The suggestion
that a caucus be held wfts first made by
Senator Hahn, who takes the position
that national questions of such a char
acter are properly party measures and
should be considered in councils of the

merry* tilt in rhe Senate between
Lfavitt and Devlin over the lit"

Devlin introduced this resolution en

Committee on Federal Relations. Devlin
brought the matter to a head by maklrg
a motion to have the resolution made the
special order of business* for next Mon

course. He said the bill was in commit

the compensation of the Commissioners.
It is still undecided whether, the . mem
bers of the board should receive their
salaries by assessing: the banks according;
to .their capital stock or their assets. At
present they are assessed according to
their capital stock. :'•
One of the salient points of the new
bill, which will be Introduced within fa
few^ day?, is to . have j four members of
the board. At present there are only
three. When the act nr*w in f6rce was
adopted in 1878 there were comparatively
few banks. The banking business has
materially increased and Tt is necessary
for the commission to have an additional
member. .This will permit Its' members
going through tlie State in pairs and as

"No, I will not say why I selected Johnson
to' Introduce the bill. I am going to make a
report to the I^bor Council and that will prob
ably be made public." ..." • „ ;, /' ¦ ' .- ¦ :•:.
It was all easy for 1 Johnson, say the labor del
egates. As the Introducer of the bill he ¦ could
at once have it referred to his own committee,
the Judiciary. Other labor union bills of the
session, with the exception of the "personal re
lations" measure,, which was also introduced
by Johnson and reported adversely on? by the
Judiciary Committee." haye all been referred to
the Committee on Labor and Capital.
"Yes. I have heard It rumored that Johnson
himself submitted the amendment carrying the
word 'Intimidation,' and that word undoubtedly
nullifies the measure. I tried to find out who
was responsible for the amendment, but could
not. It was agreed on In executive session
and just after I had loft the room.
The labor Assemblymen are not talking
openly. It is said they want to keep the storm
oiled until the matter of the amendment has
been fought out on the floor of the Uouse.
There are some fighters among them, too, and
they will make a merry roar when. they get. to
going. ¦ -. . . ' V
"I have no complaint to make against Mr.
Johnson at all,"- said Wisler,*- when asked for
a statement to-night. "He has treated
nicely and did all he promised to' do; that was
to Introduce the bill. He did nothing subse
quently regarding It except what he had a per
fect right to do. j \ v
The labor representatives in the House ar?
not going to give up without a struggle and
some of the strongest talk of the session may
be heard when the bill is called for on its sec
ond reading.' They will try to have the nulli
fying amendment stricken out and some of
them will surely give vent to their outraged
feelings during the debate, "There are mutter-
Ings against Grove L. Johnson, Into whose
hands the bill was placed for Introduction, and
against R. I. Wlsler, the representative sent
up by the San Francisco Labor Council to look
atter this bill and; other proposed legislation,
and who, with 'Walter Macarthur, also of San
Francisco, put the. aim-Injunction measure into
the bands 'of Johnson for Introduction. The
labor Assemblymen are of the opinion that
Johnson blmself proposed the amendment to
the bill.
Jan. 28. — The labor union delegation In the As
sembly is beginning to recover from the d.izlng
blow it was" struck yesterday when the Judi
ciary Committee nullified its antl-lnjunctlon bill
by tacking on the amendment providing that
nothing in the bill, which was framed to per
mit of the carrying on of strikes and boycotts,
should be construed as authorizing the use of
"force, vlolei/ce or intimidation." As the labor
delegation begins to "come to," accusations of
deep-laid plots, the "double cross" and others
of a like nature are beginning to fly thick and
fast. :

States Reasons Why Assembly Bill
129 Should Be Defeated.
Jan. 2S.— The Santa Clara Qounty Medical So
ciety, represented by J. T. Ilarris. acting pres
ident, and W. T. McNary. secretary, has fllcd
a protest against the passago of llclIarCln's
Assembly bill 129, now before' the Assembly
Judiciary Committee. The objections stated"
against the bill are as follows: That in mat
ters of education It Is retrogressive, inasmuch
•s the present medical law requires a fair
knowledge of the fundamental principles of
medicine, surgery and obstetrics, while the
proposed law «eeka to eliminate this require
ment by abolishing- examinations which now
exclude from practice the unlearned and in
competent graduates of mercenary and noto
riously disreputable medical colleges.
That under the existing statutes of Cali
fornia any body of men can incorporate a med
ical college and lawfully confer degrees and
issue diplomas. Should Assembly bill No. 129
become a law it will encourage the establish
ment of. new diploma mills under the guise
of medical colleges, whose output would recelva
certificates from a State boarJ to practice med-,
lcine on presentation of such diplomas, and/
overrun . the State, becoming a curse to the
communities in which they tnay. locate and a
source of degradation to tho medical profes
sion. : ¦ • ,.
That the bill encourages the Incorporation
of unscrupulous ¦ person h into Vfirious * *1£jj*a 1 1 y
chartered medical societies,"' which by their
numerical strength as opposed to bona flde
Btatc medical- societies can compel the Gov
ernor to appoint membecB of. the. State Board
of Medical Kxaminers of th«:lr own selection
And for their own private Interests, thus tak
ing the election of members of the State board
out of the province of the three State medical
Eocietlea. " ,
r That tho bill discriminates aaralnst graduates
of colleges and universities of other States by
compelling them to submit to an examination
by the State Board of Medical Examiners and
payment of a fee of $25. while graduates of
medical colleges of California are made ex
empt from such . examination of qualification
and are admitted to practice upon payment of
a fee of only $1O.
State, approved .March 23. 190T, entitled. "An
act fixing and 'defining a miner's inch of
water," and all other laws and parU of laws
in conflict with this act. .* -
In the work against the bill, the lobby
will be under *he leadership of "William
12. Smythe of San Diego. At a conven
tion of representatives' of the various irri
gation «ompunles which are opposing tpv
measure, held during the latter part of
December at Riverside, he was appointed
to come here and secure its defeat if pos
sible. After the bill had been introduced
Smythe gave out'the following statement:.
The Works bill having been introduced. It Is
now proper for me to announce that those who
oppose It will assist Its author and supporters
In bringing it to thu fullest discussion befor?y
the Le.ntslature and the people. We do not
desire, and wo will not permit, any course
which would furnish the slightest ground fcr
the claim that the bill had been smothered by
unfriendly committees, or defeated in ignorance
and prejudice. We believe, and are prepared
to show. Hint the enactment of such a meas
ure would be a calamity to the people of Cali
fornia, now and throughout generations to
come. We want every citizjn of the State to
know why this is so. and. if the bill Is beaten
In the end. we want, the action of the Legtela-'
turp In pronouncing against it to be accepted
as the solemn registering of the people's in
telligent and emphatic disapproval of the
Works bill and of the principles on which it Is
based. This battle between corporate owner
ship of water apart from land and ownership
| of water by the proprietors and . tillers of the
soil must inevitably be fought to a flnteh some
time. The appropriate time is. now; The re
sult should be such as to clear our path of all
future danger from this • source and to leave
no r excuse for the presentation of this bill,
or any like it. to the next Legislature. The
Question to be determined Is rne which Is ab
solutely vital to our civilization.
tr'st for oil the members are taking action
on en Important and intricate scientific
problem with which none of the members
is competent to give anything like expert
rpinlons, because none of them is thor
oughly familiar with the subject. Rather
than draft a new measure incorporating
in it regulations the effect of which the
members have no personal means of
knowing and rather than Institute some
new species of legislation upon the. sub
ject he would prefer letting the law re
main as it if.
The members of the committee ar«
practically agreed that some proper reg
ulation is needed with reference to the
manufacture and sale of illuminating oils
such as are consumed in the homes all
over the State, but it has been pointed
out to them that the Ralston bill provides
in explicit terms that it shall be appli
cable only to cities and shall not apply
to the use of oil on railroad locomotives.
If. therefore, it is the desire of the mem
bers to pass a law saying that Illuminat
ing oil shall not be sold in the State un
less it is of a sufficiently high grade to
be safe -they cannot adapt the Ralston
bill to such a desire, but must enact an
entirely different measure, and one which
would eliminate the embargo which the
Ralston bill seeks to place upon crude oil
used as fuel. •
Some of the Senators who favor a new
coal oil or kerosene law see in such an
enactment the necessity, if it is to be en
forced, of a commission for that purpose
to whom must be given power to appoint
numerous inspectors throughout the
State, whose duty it would be to inspect
the oils kept in stock in groceries and
at other places where oil is dispensed for
domestic use. The present Legislature is
not one which will take kindly to any
proposition looking to the increase in the
number of State commissions. The incli
nation of the members Is decidedly to
ward the very opposite course.
Senator Hahn of Pasadena positively de
clared to-day that he will oppose the
Ralston measure unless a number of
amendments are made to it. He 1 is the
president, of two oil companies and Is fa
miliar in a general way with the needs of
the Industry. He said: ;
1 do not know anything about flash tests
at certain temperatures or fire tests. That
is a matter which has been determined by
scientists, and it is not to be expected that
«ny of us could give a satisfactory explana
tion cf thore terms. It is therefore not proper
that we should seek to incorporate into the
Rtatute any* regulations about which we know
practically nothinp. and especially lt> this true
r>-hen by so doing we might ruin the oil In
dustry. 1 do rot say that I am opposed to
legislation such as would secure to the people
better oil or the best oil for domestic purpose*,
but the subjects of the use of Illuminating .oil
and that of the use as fuel of crude oil can
not be incorporated in the sam* law. There
Is nothinK in common between them. I doubt
if the Ralston bill can be made to tpply to
illuminating oil alone, and unless it is amend
ed so as to eliminate its objectionable features
I shall oppose it.
The members of the upper house have
been notified that from all the large oil
producing fields in the southern part of
the State will come a large lobby to fight
against the bill when It Is considered be
fore the Senate Committee on Mining
Monday night. Nearly all the commer
cial bodies of Los Angeles have passed
resolutions against the passage of the
It is now Bf positively known as any
thing in advance can be known that tho
bill cannot pass the legislature in its
present form and there is a greater .prob-,
ability of its defeat than of its being
adopted In any form whatever. The uni
versal opposition which it has engendered
from oil producers and oil consumers
throughout the State hap already had its
effect. Ralston says he is willing to be
«-n!igh*er;ed on the of oil and if
it ca,n be shown to "his satisfaction that
ihe provisions of the bill are antagonistic
to the ;OH industry he himself will not
support fv He contend?, however, that
.s-ome^Wgtsiation is needed on the subject
ot oiJ;M> as to protect the u«ers of it from
cF.nperfrom explosions and It is for the
purpose of securing all possible informa
tion */n the subject that he has called the
committee meeting.
The Senate Committee on Mines and
Mining is composed, besides the chairman,
of Senators Curt'n, Hubbell, Cogglns,
l.ardr^r, Belshaw and Tyrrell of Nevada.
Of these Jliibbell- has already declared
that be will use every means within his
jiower to secure the defeat of tbe bill. The
others have- i:ot taken such a positive
Mand. preferring to wait until the matter
is properly 'presented before announcing
their th'tejiUonft. Senator ; Coggins has
stated, however, that he appreciates the
fact that in. dealing with the mater of
:i|iplying a cerain stated Tire test or flash
r> *=afe flash test on oil. Ralston proposes
to Ftart on the hypothesis that oil that
fl&ehes at fc5 degrees is out of the ques
lion and that as the thermometer some
times rice? to 114 when in the s>hade i*:
the valley district, 114 flash test is ..also
dangerous. He will then ask the "Lob
Angeles oil men what they want.
MENTO. Jan. 28.— Senator Ralstoa
fs standing .from under bill No.
225, relating to the regulation of
flash tests on oil. He introduced
i he measure, but does not care to fa' her
tbm bill.
In conversation with Charles D. Wil

ber of Commerce of Los Angeles, Ralston
t-aid to-day:

Ralston to-day asked the Senate to
grant the u*e of the Senate chamber in
next Monday evening in order that the
Committees on Minos and Mining of the
mi houses might hold an open meeting
lor the discussion of the oil bill. He
also asked that the sergeant at arms be
oirectrd to be in attendance and preserve
order. The meeting cf the committee, ho
t^aid, was for the purpose of considering
th« oil bill, which provides for a Car-li
t*?at- of fuel oil. In speaking about the
matter tn-day. Ralston added that he
would state his position, and in ordc.
that he will not be misquoted, wour*»
read his statement and would then call
upon the delegation present to present
their substitute measure, if they had one,
after which, for purposes of discussion,
experts would b<^ called upon to give
thc'.r opinions on what they considered
It is up to the Legislature to help the
Governor out as much as It possibly can.
Each day new appropriations -for coyote
claims, which already aggregate $200,000,
are coining in "and the chief executive
wonders when the grinding of the legis
lative mill will cease.
Despite this large amount, Gage made
a tax levy of 60 cents. During the last
two years of his term Gage used the
money he raised by the high tax levy.
He was thus enabled to make a low tax
levy of 38 cents for 1902. This of neces
city leaves Governor Pardee to bear the
brunt of the criticism of his constituents.
Among the big appropriations that,con
front Pardee may be mentioned the fol
lowing: St. Loula Exposition, $150,000;
Southern California Hospital. $110,000; San
Diego Normal (School, $102,000; University
of California, $250,000; the new Yosemite
Valley hotel, $250,000; the San Francisco
High School, $240,000; the San Francisco
irOrmal School, $150,000; the Water and
Forest Association, $107,00»; the Big Basin
Redwood Park installment, $50.0u0; the
Grand Army of the Republic, $25,00", and
numerous other appropriations absolutely
necessary for the maintenance and run
ning of the various institutions of the
If Governor Pardee cuts the special ap
propriations down to $1,000,000 the tax levy
for the next fiscal year will be 58 cents on
$100, to which must be added 2 cents more
for the maintenance of the University of
California. In using the pruning knifo
the Governor is likely to hurt the feelings
of residents in many sections, but this
will be necessary in order that he may
run his administration on a satisfactory
financial basis. v< <£
When ex-Governor Budd was in office he
put the State in a good financial condi
tion. Gage came.- in and was told that
he could run the State government on
40 cents on $100, but this would not leave
much money for' his successor to run the
affairs ,of government from July to De
cember. Gage's policy makes it neces
sary now for Governor Pardee to have a
high tax levy. When Gage went Into
office he had $2,184,000 In the treasury,
which is a larger sum than any other
Incoming Governor has ever had to assist
him In the affairs of state.

HENTO, Jan. 28.— Governor Par
dee has his worries. What with
receiving scores of stalwart Re
publicans, who are seeking posi
tions, and examining bills for appropria
tions and enacting new laws, he has his
hands full. The legislators are daily in
troducing bills for appropriations, which,
if they pass, must come to him for ap
proval. With nearly $1,000,000 shortage in
the general fund to carry until the next
tax money comes in December, 1903, h*
is confronted with the difficult task of
beeping the State government on a sound
financial basis. It Is true that he can un
der the law have money, transferred from
the school fund* to tide over the financial
stringency, yet the money must be pai'J
back as soon as the county taxes are re
Despite this condition of affairs the
members of the Legislature are daily. In
troducing bills for large appropriations.
In the Assembly alone, of 500 bills intro
duced, 151 of them call for appropriations
amounting in the aggregate to $3,742,003 51.
That would indicate that one-third of the
bills call for money. More ttian 300 bills
Hiave been introduced in the Senate and a
large percentage call for appropriations
not duplicated in the Assembly bills. .

Catarrh Is Found Everywhere.
Catarrh is at home anywhere and
everywhere. While more common in cold,
changeable, climates, it Is by no means
confined to them, but is prevalent in
c-\ ery State and Territory in the Union.
The common definition of catarrh Is a
chronic eold in the head, which if long
iicglecu-d uftcn destroys the sense of
smell and hearing; but there are many
other forms of the disease, even more
obstinate and dangerous.
Catarrh of the throat and bronchial

Dr. Mclverney advises catarrh sufferers
to use a new preparation, sold -by drug-

an internal remedy, pleasant to. the taste,
convenient and harmless, can be used as
fieely as required, as well for children as
for adults. ¦ '¦

People have no idea how
crude and cruel soap can be.
It takes off dirt. So far,
so good; but what else does
it do.
It cuts the skin and frets
the under-skin; makes red- j
ness and roughness and
leads to worse. Not soap,
but the alkali in it.
Pears' Soap has no free, al-
kali in it. It neither reddens
nor roughens the skin. It re-
sponds to water instantly; wash-
es and rinses off in a twinkling; is
as gentle as strong; and the
after-effect is every way good.
