Curry, When Reprimanded, Replies in Bitter Words
Pardee Told Him He
Had Done Too Much
"Cheap Politics"
polntment of Hosmer and Denny.
Through the 111-timed receipt of the
resignation of Taffgart. Pardee had
been able to make a valid appointment
«t the particularly unwelcome Crow.
Hosmer was utrong enough with the
decent element In San Francisco to
make him an easy pill to swallow and
It would be bad politics to prolong tho
row, Just for the scalp of Denny. The
flgbt wasn't worth the price. Pardee
had won.
The resignation of Tagrrart was.
viewed from the new administration
Ptandpolnt, a most unfortunate bit of
business. That Tasxart made a mis
take as to the proper time to ranll his
resignation no one pretend* to doubt.
But It had not reached the Hnnia Bar
bara jurist that the Senatorial scheme
to oust Pardee from offlce Monday hnd
fallen throusrh. hence hl« lamentable
blunder. That his reslpnatlon was not
Intended to reach Pardoe is fairly wbvl
ous'from the fact tbat H wa<« not aa
oretfced to Pardee. but to the Governor
ot Calltornla. That It was not ad
dressed by name*o GUlett Is under tho
circumstances not difficult of proper
appreciation. Whatever may have been
the intent of Tairpart. the effect was
to deliver a thunderbolt and to aettle
nn unsavory piece of political iugtfery
with the Judiciary
nOTll SIDES PW>TTED
Both sides were attempting to make
political capital out of the institution
that must be free from pollt : cs to pre
o*r%'e decent government. Pardee won.
nnd throurh his victory the people of
San Francisco secure the services of
J. A. Hosmer, which the machine at
tempted to steal from them throusrh
boss manipulation of convention! and
votinc machines.
The resignation of Judg-* Tarsart
was a fine bit of work. It wu dated
January 6. but there wa* nothing: about
It to Indicate that It was mailed on that
day. Ta,ffß:art had evidently taken
Judicial notice of the controversy over
the appointment of his eucceesor. and
nought to clear up the atmosphere and
relieve the strained situation. Tbat
hl« failure to appreciate the difficulties
under wtilch the Senate labored Sunday.
Its failure to secure a ouorum and the
expedition with which Uncle flam for
wards the mall may have given his ef
forts to the advantage of Parfiee In -
vtead of his succeMOr !\u25a0 beside the
question. Pardee srot the resignation
and used it. Tafirrart's resignation was
as follows:
SANTA* HAItBARA. Jan. 6.
To the Governor of the state of Cali
fornia:
Sir— You are hereby notified .that on
the 7th day of January, J»O7. I will
enter upon the dlscharee of the duties
of the Associate Justice of the District
Court of Appeal. B«cond . Appellate

fect of this act on my Incumbency of
the offlce of Judge of the Superior
Court for the County of Santa Bar
bara 1 hereby resign said offlce of
Superior Judge, said resignation to
take effect Immediately upon the com
mencement of the term of said offlce of
Associate Justice, to which 1 was elect

"Accepted January 9 as of January 7."
1997. at 10:43 a. m. of eald day of
January. 1907. Oeoree C. Pardee,.Gov
ernor, was hurriedly penned on. the res
ignation and It. with a new commission,
hurried to Curry, while Pardee In
dulged himself In a new serlee of
chuckles. Pardee and Curry had Just
exchanged uncomplimentary, remarks.
The new turn ot affairs would add t©
Curry** dlBKUst, and Pardee was corre-
Kpondlngrly happy.
JIDCi: SHIELDS' DUC'MON
Almost simultaneously with the
resignation of Tacrart and the re
appolntment of Crow came the intelli
rence that Judge Shields had issued a
writ commanding Curry to issue the
commission and the reappolntments of
Hosmer and Denny by Pardee. The
flrht was over. Curry after a brief
absence from his offlce recalled his
Intention to appeal from an order he
had already complied with and com:
pleted the surrender by attesting the
new commissions of Hoemer and
Penny.
Before the disconcerting TaKpart
resignation and the -udfre Shields de
cision materialised Curry and Pardee
had exchanged rather pointed person
alities. Curry went Into the Gover
."tior's offlce ostensibly to bid Pardee
'farewe.il. Pardee promptly took Curry
<q" tuf-k for his failure }o perform his
*trty. zri '\u25a0 .\u25a0'\u25a0..-•: -,-.
" You ..Aeve attempted to establish a
dangerous precedent. *k . .snapped . the
Governor.. "You had no r.^- k to refuse

not called upon by your oath of office*
to attempt to exercise either executive

to decide whether my acts are legal or

"It would be a eood thins for the

Curry, "If ministerial officers would
more frequently Question the acts of

"It's a cheap kind of - politics.**^

"Politics." -sniffed Curry, choking
with wrath. "Politics, politics. You

Pardee Feels frbiid
of Administration
By Former Governor Pardee
SACR.VME.VTO, Jan. 0—"In0 — "In
retiring from the of flew of
Governor of California,
laying dawn the heavy
burden* and reapenslfatlUle* which
It carries with It, I «hall take
with me many pleasant meme
rle« <ot <he four years spent
tfa - the . executive ofllce. There'
' have been, of course, many annoy
nnees} Ibirr always are iurb In
\u25a0ny wnlk «f l!fe| but there hare
been very fevr unpleasantneMsee;
and the pleasant experience* have
Car outnumbered all the re*t.
"So far as I can call to mind
. the experiences of the nast four
years, there are none for which
I should blush or be really,
ashamed. Thui which 1 have done
has been done aa irell as I rould
de It. The mistakes, many In
number, I fear, have been of the
head and not of the heart. And
I hope that the verdict of the peo
ple en my administration Is that
14 was honestly conducted.
"The kindnesses shown me by
the people of Ihe Male have been
nißuj-. and I' appreciate them from
the bottom of my heart. As I look
back ever the fourteen years that
I have been honored with public
ofilce, I can not belp but disagree
with those T>ho say that republics
arc ungrateful.**
how. there is no reason why I should
lend myself to your attempt to play
politics by filling vacancies that did
not exist."
PARDEBC MAKES REPLY
"That Is not your affair," shouted the
Governor. "If I Appointed myself Presi
dent of the United States It would be
your duty to attest the commission."
"Well, if you did that, I think I
would issue the commission; there
would be no chance of. your landing In
the Job," retorted Curry aa he waved
Pardee an elaborately ceremonious
farewell.
Referring to the appointments. Par
dee aaid last night:
"It was a most shameful attempt to
play politics with the Judiciary, "and
such an attempt as could be made only
tn California. I was In doubt as to
Jlic legality of my appointments, and
in -any ' event the State has secured
three good Judges,, whom.- the, people
cannot- - successfully claim were ap
pointed because they were my political
friends.**" ** ' •" '
{ Governor GUlett. when asked If he
could attempt to .set aside the appoint
ments made by Pardoe, said:
"I would be the last one in the world
to Interfere with an appointment pure
ty for politics. I did not want to turn
any. good .man out of offlce. I under
stand that Judge Hosmer is an excel
lent man and a Rood Judge, and that
the came Is true of Judges Denny and
Crow.** .
State May Be Asked
to Aid Reclamation
SACRAMENTO. Jan. 9. — As a result
of a m*-etin(? of the legislators from
the Sacramento and San Joaquin val-
Ity* held here today it is probable that
the State will be asked to lend $15,000
to complete the work of reclaiming*
lands tn the ten valley counties. .it
was first proposed to urge a bill for an
appropriation, but State Senator Miller
of Vlsalla put a damper on this plan by
saying: "I have; lands six fvt under
water, but I haven't the -nerve to ask
the whole State to foot the' bill for
their reclamation."

TIIOSES OX THE STAGB
-The stage, which was conventionally
decorated with' ferns and bunting, had
In the middle a painted copy of the
great seal of the State, in friknt of
which sat the Inauguration committee,
including President pro tern, of the
Senate Wolfe. Speaker Beardslee of the
Assembly. President pro tern. . of the
Joint Session Leavltt and Chaplain
Darling. , Jake Steppacher was master
of ceremonies and looked after most I
of the details of the programme.-
Tho announcement of the- arrival, pf
the. principals In the inauguration cer
emony was made by Sergeant- at" Arms
Martin, who appeared at< the entrance
of the auditorium, followed by.G ov T
ernor-elect GUlett. Governor Pardee,
Lieutenant Governor Anderson and
Lieutenant Governor-elect Porter.
The party paused in the center aisle
while Senator Wolfo arose and made
: the formal request that it be escorted
to the platform.
Tho Governor's stafT. in full uniform,
followed the party to the platform, the
orchestra playing "Hall to the Chief
as the retiring and Incoming executives
took their seats. \
Speaker Beardslee introduced Gov
ernor Pardee to the Assembly. after a
prayer by Chaplain Darling 'and. the
singing of "America."
An unusual demonstration greeted
Pardee as he arose. Cheering continued
for several minutes, and It was easy to
understand that his popularity In Sac
ramento was real and unaffected. . He
spoke deliberately, saying that It was
with mingled feelings of pleasure and
regret that he was laying down the
duties of the Governor's office.
PAnDEE'S ADDRESS
"I shall always remember wfth pleas
ure the cordiality of the relations that
have existed' between the two houses
of the Legislature,' Lieutenant , Gov

"While it is with regret that I leave

"The legislators are to be congratu
lated-upon the work they accomplished
at thtlr special session, when Califor

much to thank the Legislature for. but
It goes without saying that the people
of that city appreciate what has been
done for them. ..On occasions like these
words of parting . should be few and
those of thanks '. many. | .
- '"Governor Gillett. I nows surrender

toihe Last Day's Rows
BACRAMENTO. Ban. 9. — Senator Gus
Hartman's row -with Governor Pardee
at the Capitol" today furnished a com
panion piece to the, ; trouble the out
going executive had with Secretary of
State Charles ';" Curry., being, if any
thing, the subject' of 'more gossip to
night -in the \u0084'hotel lobbies than the
latter, exchange :of words. Cnrry and
Pardee ' discussed > the ethiC3.. of. politics
and ' the judiciary; In the language of
the smoking' room. . -V >\u25a0 .- t -
Pardee went a little further. l with ; the
Senator, from San Francisco, and told
him he was "old enough to be: decent."
" Whlat Hartman said to Pardee was
even more graphic. The' lances! they
used were broken over two pet hobbles
of Hartman. Gus, among other things,
wanted Pardee to make him 'a notary
In San Francisco, a billet that heesti
mates is worth $4000 or J5OOO a year.
Another thing that he wanted the
Governor to do was to pardon
"Georgo Thompson-," a member of
a prominent Oakland family; who
was sentenced to eight "years ln : the
penitentiary two years ago for grand
larceny. \u25a0 Many influential men. among
Hartman's constituents want this:ln
discreet young Oaklander pardoned.' and
Hartman and other folks now In the
capital Intimate that Pardee practically
promised them to do so. ; . !
t - What Pardee said he promised them
was to recommend the young;- man's
parole to the prison board— as he has
never,made it a practice. to grant-par
dons unless a malefactor, h'oweye'r'well
connected he mlghti.be. had, served, at
least half of his, sentence. , '. ;. 'V
\u25a0Hartrnari.'.'however.: understood.-mat
ters otherwise, and' this,'- together, with
Pardee's refusal to come throucrh on the
San Francisco riotaryshlp caused him to
be -very belligerent In his *flnal \u25a0 inter
view with the, outgoing executive. . Par
dee^ was Justtas pronounced in resent
ing what he called . Hartm&n's imperti
nence,; and the languagehe used to him
came .near "raising the -transom over
the -^dqor ' in; which "the interview :be
tweenthera was held.C " . •.''•;
