Gubernatorial Chair
: Delegates, from this city to the Re
publican State convention met last
"night in Judge Graham's court room on
California' street, near Webster. Owing
to the carmen's strike many had to. foot I
it for a long distance, and were late in j
reporting. The attendance was large.
C. R. Garoutte. J. C. Courer and Hen
ry C. Dibble were early comers. They
were soon reinforced by Ben Fenhe- j
riiann. John H. Nelson, j George A- Mc-
Govin, T. E. Atkinson, E. Argelenger.

S:' Wood. M. Cerf. Senator* E. I. Wolfe
*nd George R. Keane, Phil Haskens,
IT. H. Davl», John Rogers. A. Louder
b«,ck and A. B. Treadwell.
A. Ruef as chairman of the campaign
e&.mmittee said it was sis pleasant duty
to call the delegates together to confer
on any topic they thought desirable. It
had. been too often the case that the
delegates had gone to the State con
vention where they wielded little in
fluence because of lack of harmony, and
organization.
• He suggested that each district dele
gation should organize by the election
of a chairman and a secretary. Remark
•K&s made that the eight delegates from
one district (36th)- had been Invited to
meet on an equal footing with the maj
ority. Ruef advised that the first order
of business 6hould be the election of a
chairman of the San Francisco delega-'
'tlo'ti. ' Whereupon Supervisor D. J.
Coleman in a somewhat elaborate and
eulogistic, .speech nominated A. Ruef.
Th.c applause at the mention of Ruef'e
name was quite prolonged and hllar
fo-uS. . . . V
• Maurice Asher seconded the nomina
tion Ytf A- Ruef. speaking of the nomi
nee-as. en estimable gentleman who had
displayed superior generalship in the
recent campaign- for election, of dele

i Mr. Ruef thanked the speaker* Cole
man- alnd Asher, for speaking so elo
quently and. for speaking the truth.
-G«orge R. Keane nominated Ben Feh
herqann for secretary and he was j
elected by acclamation.
.. Colonel. E: D. Berri of the Thirty
fourth District introduced a resolution

their g-enerous help to San Francisco in j
the hour/of the city's need. The reso- i

. APO.PT THE t'XIT RULE.
M- Cerf presented the topic of In
surance and submitted a resolution.!
which he: fancied should be included
i:i the- State platform of the party.
Following is.- the text of the resolution:
.'Whereas.' The' recent conflagration
which has devastated this city and. the
immense loss of- property caused there
by has brought. pointedly V 3V 3 the atten
tion of all our. citizens the inade
quacy of our Insurance laws to protect,
holders of- fire insurance policies
.against the bad faith, rapacity and un
fair dealing of a large number of fire
insurance, companies; and.'
Whereas, It is- painfully apparent
tfiat fire Insurance policies must, be
further safeguarded by law. and pro
tection afforded to our citizens In the
contracts which they may hereafter en
ter into with five Insurance, companies,
therefore be it ' '*
R««olved. That this "delegation will
work as a unit in the Republican State
convention to secure t*3>^adoption of a
plank in the party platform pledging
puch amendments of fire insurance laws
aj will remedy and In the future pre
vent tlie unsatisfactory conditions now
e-Kisting under our present ilnsurance
laws and that every candidate for the
State Legislature and for every other
.office "shall be pledged to do all in his
power to secure the enactment of such
remedial ' Insurance legislation, which
shall be operative not only for the ben
. efit of San Francisco, but also for the
entire State of California.
• Henry. Ach introduced this resolu
tion:
\u25a0Whereas, on account of the awful
'calamity which has been •uxtalned by
.San Francisco the gaze of the world Is
'upon us; a.nd.
•Whereas, We are still under the
throes of our misfortune, be it - •» -
Resolved. That delegates from the
.'citr and county \yt Sao Francisco to the
liepublican State convention shall. In
co far as may b» practicable, work
anxj vote together upon all matters ma
terial and political which may tend to
the restoration and upbuilding of our
far famed and beloved home.
Delegate Henderson asked If tne
resolution meant the unit rule. So far
' as he was concerned he was willing
.for unit rule on Schmitz. Pardee. Gil
lett or Ha-yes or any other good Repub
lioan for Governor. "If we are going
to bring back anything for San Fran
'clsco we should have a stronger
£eclara.tlon." he said. :
H. G. W. Dinkelsplel said if the reso
lution included the unit rule he was
against it.
The resolution was unanimously
•adopted.
STIUKC IS MENTIONED.
• supervisor , Coleman presented a
Strike- resolution as follows:
Whereas, the. Republican party has
at all -times favored fair wages, and
-better conditions for the wage-earn
ers: and.
- Tv'berea*. By reason of our recent
calamity conditions have arisen In this
State* and especially In this city, which
• have' in some degree unsettled the
Droper relation* between labor and
capital and have In many instances
Race Between Gillett
and Pardee Still a
Guessing Contest
Hugh M. Burke.
Blank places on the Republican slate
will not be filled until the elections In
Contra Costa, Lake and Merced take
place. For Governor either the name
of Pardee or.Gillett will be written: on
It. Indications at this time favor Gillett,
but the. steady and somewhat unex
pected development of Pardee strength
has caused Herrin to think several
times. One hears an undercurrent pre-^
diction in political camps that the af
fair may be settled after all by the
naming of the present . Governor for
another term. -•.:..
The carmen's strike has not added
to the prestige of Ruef. Moreovei
the Impression is very nearly general ,
that J. O. Hayes ' could not win the
nomination even . if Herrln and Ruef
should decide to name him as the ac
ceptable candidate of the machine.
GlUett delegations of the north, if
forced to break away from the candi
date of their first choice, would split
up. with the result of many landing in
the Pardee column. As it now stands
the Pardee sentiment is so strong that
Knight and Gillett are a Httle ap
prehensive that the doctor will de
tach several men who are claimed as
hard and fast supporters of the Con
gressman.
\u25a0 Colonel E. A. Forbes and Railroad
Commissioner A. C. Irwln of Marysvllle
were at the Union League Club yester
day. Mr. Irwin does not expect formi
dable opposition to his own nomina
tion, Although he hears that Sacra
mento will present a candidate to op
pose him. I Infer from general talks
with men from the upper Jsacramento
that Judge Hart Is a strong candidate
for Justice of the Appellate Court. .
ASHLEY CALLS OX GILLETT.
A. H. Ashley . of San Joaquln called
at Gillett headquarters in Union
square yesterday and Colonel Forbes
paid h,s respects to Governor Pardee
at the ferry building. The colonel ap
pears somewhat elated over the Pardee
victory in Yuba. He insists that the
solid delegation of five will support
the doctor, although Railroad-Commis
sioner, Irwln has the rtrst call.
The fight on Tim Bernard in Chico
prevented a solid delegation for
Pardee in Butte. Three votes In that
county may go to Gillett, although
claim Is made that Hayes will receive
that addition to his ?anta Clara forces.
I asked Colonel Forbes if the West
ern Pacific Railroad Company was
taking, part in the contest. He
replied: 'The Western Pacific is
not mixing in the fight. Five
sixths of the Republicans in the
Sacramento Valley- favor Pardee. Look
at the figures In Yuba County, where
an open, unhampered choice was -made
at the primary. -Every voter was free
to express his Judgment, and the result
Is five to one throughout the county
in Pardee"? favor/
The Sickiyou delegation, in the con
vention may cast, a : complimentary
vote • for E. B. Edson and then "divide
for ' Pardee and Gillett. I hear that
Edson's health is faillne. -The recent
death of his p rtner. Folk, was a great
shock ' to the ex-Railroad j Commis
sioner. The story comes from the
north that R. S. Taylor, chairman of
the Slskiyou delegation, is firm for
Pardee.
Dr. Pardee left the city for the State
Capitol last I evening-. This . day is
"Governor's day" at the State Fair, and
of- course- the presence of -the -chief
executive is expected by the Sacra
mento -people.
XOT SCARED AT DEAD 3IA.V.
Congressman Gillett is not losing
flesh or sleep at the Little St. Francis.
Early yesterday morning a dead man
was. found near Gillett's window. In
the square, but the Congressman is
not superstitious. "When Gillett looked
about and saw that George Hatton
was. alive and well' he was fairly
serene, but this proof of Hatton's vi
tality did not cause undue elation {n
the mind of Senator Coggins.
Gossip goes that Judge A. G. Burnett
of Sonoma, candidate for Associate
Justlc* of the Supreme Court, and U.
S. Webb, aspirant, for another term as
Attorney General, have resolved to
cast their political fortunes with the
anti-Pardee forces. This resolution
v.-11l surely create peculiar complica
! tiona.
The Union Labor convention, called
ffor September 5. and the convention fit
| the Independence League, coming^on
j the heels of the carmen's strike, \u25a0 may
i cau.se trouble for Congressional candi
dates In the Fourth and Fifth districts.

ahead of them a big rattler, coiled and
with head raised as if about to strike.
Adet; heard, their screams and when

for a weapon. Three charges of buck
shot put an end to his snakeship. /
