HEADQUARTERS, 1007 EIGHTH STREET SACRAMENTO, March 4. — Spirited £--bat- attended the defeat in'th^Sen- Me today of the bill introduced by feiller of Visalia providing for the im bosition of fines on railroad*' for. re fusing to supply cars to shippers. The bill was a facsimile of the fa miliar Texas car law, which ha« been In operation for twelve years. It was jntroduced by Miller! at the request pf Bakersfield oil men. who have been trippled by the Southern Pacific and cither railroads leagued with the Rockefeller Interests, and also at the request of citrus growers and orchard ists, who have been complaining of fruit rotting on the ground because of the shortage of cars. Miller pointed out that Oregon was to pass a similar (aw and that the position of California relative to that State and Texas made the passage of the bill .very desirable legislation. Wolfe of San Francisco thought the bill unconstitutional, because it sought to penalize a- railroad for something fciiic'.i it might not be able to do. He referred to the great congestion of freight throughout California and said th* popular disposition was to over rritlclze the railroads. Csmlnettt of Amador sprang into the lists and enlivened thingrs with a long indictment against the railroads. He road from a report of Commissioner Df Corporations Garfield on the dis criminations practiced by the railroads In California, and quoted from a mes fcage of Governor Pardee and testimony taken before the Interstate Commerce Commission on the deviations in rates to oil men.

SACRAMENTO. March 4. — Senator ; Leavitt's bill making the Judgments of ! foreign courts good in California passed the Assembly without opposition today and Is now on its way to the Gover ! nor. Assemblyman Drew explained to ! his colleagues that the measure was de ! signed to help insurance claimants. The McCartney pure drug bill also went through unanimously. Assembly man Campbell withdrew his opposition, with the. understanding that his own pure food and pure drug bill was to be permitted to pass the Senate. Senator McCartney's bill making it possible for Judges at their discretion to receivers and co'ncealera of stolen goods to State prison instead of the county Jail was opposed by the San Francisco delegation, but received forty-four out of fifty-three votes. Leavltfa bill designed to remove an objection from voting machines passed unanimously. Stetson of Oakland said that under the present system, which' permitted the writing of a name In the blank column, it was possible, by writ ing the name of a party, candidate, for one voter to give a single candidate two votes.

L *\u25a0 fT^i m r \u25a0 *-| i«ilMliiillMlMn< Giilett Will Sign Capital Moving Measure Continued From Pace 1, Column 4 visions for- the popular nomination of ; candidates for the United States Sen i ate. is not a direct primary measure. i After the provision for the nomination of Senators the Stetson bill Is an ag gravated form of the Illinois compro mise, which the Illinois friends of direct primary legislation are now en deavoring to have their legislature repeal after one unsatisfactory trial of it. The Call, In rommon with all students of direct primary legislation who have studied such systems at first hand and from the view of their prac tical operation, has consistently op posed the adoption of the Illinois sys tem by California. That the political organizations do not approve of it either proves absolutely nothing from the direct primary reformers' stand point. It Is delegate convention law so complicated that It Is satisfactory to no one and without accomplishing the object of a direct primary it mul tiplies the expense of the Intermediary primaries, which It complicates. But the Stetson bill cannot, in fair ness to the Illinois law, be compared with that enactment, because Hie Illi nois' law can be uniform in Its appli cation and the proposed Stetson law cannot be uniform save In Its applica tion u> the nomination of candidates for-the United States Senate. This lack of uniformity can be over come /only by making the present in termediary I»w compulsory and man datory in all preclT>ctB. The provisions of the Stetson bill touching the opera tion of the proposed law are: "Sec. 39. This law shall not be^ap plicable as to localities or offlcers where the conventions making nomina tions shall be composed of delegates less than two-thirds of whom are se lected under the primary election law of this State." That provision, eliminates the State ticket, the Congressional ticket with one exception, county tickets with les3 than one dozen exceptions • and a cor responding number of municipal 'tick et* from the. operation of the proposed enactment. After the Senatorial provision, which is pure direct primary, the bright par ; ticular feature of the measure Is a candidate's ballot, to voters at the pri mary election in connection with a delegate's ticket- In those localities where the could apply the elector may express his choice as to candi dates and. then turn his choice over to delegates, whw are charged wi£h the duty of voting for the nomination of those candidates so long as their names may remain before the conventions. By engrafting the Texas elimination scheme, the bill provides that after each ballot the name of the candidate receiving the least number of votes shall foe dropped, until there is ond candidate with a majority of all the delegate' votes, who shall be -declared the nominee of his party for the des ignated office. In fine it is but % com plication of the delegate system the people of California are demanding that they *be< freed from. * \u25a0 Governor Giilett signed today the bill authorizing t the sale of the Lob Angeles Normal School property' at public auction for. not less than $500, 000. The bill has been before the Gov ernor for some time and he ref ueefl, to stamp It with his, approval" until after he had the local situation Inves tigated by .his own agent. The report of this agent convinced him that the State's best , interest' wduld , »te con served by selling the property , to ' the highest bidder. The~locatlon, accord^ ing to the report made to the Governor, is -unsatisfactory, as le the*. building, which Is without; elevators.

Bell of, Los Angeles, having been told that the committee on public morals, the chairman .of which la Irish of Downievllle, intended to refuse to act* on the bill, Introduced a resolution asking that It be reported out. Bell declared that Leavltt of Ala rnedn, a concessionaire of Emeryville, had told him that it would be useless to expect any- consideration of tha bill at the hands of the committee..; - , "lie told me that I might 'introduce this resolution, but that nothing, would corns of It," declared Bell. "There la another' thing about this bill that I would dike to call the; attention of the Senate to. Resolutions- were -adopted at the last Republican convention held in Los Angeles denouncing racetrack gambling and instructing the. members elected to this body from that county, to lend their support to securing legls ; lation prohibiting poolselling and book making. Unless the Republican mem bers of the Los Angeles delegation are determined to repudiate their party pledges, they will be bound to support this bill and this resolution." Wolfe of San • Francisco rose- to a point of order and declared that Bell should confine himself to discussing the resolutions he ..had submitted rather than the merits of tire Eahle man bill. Bell agreed that "the dls '. tinguiBhed and academic president pro tern." might be right In his point, of order, but finished what he had v . to say about the "pernicious Influence of rac ing." . When the vote that defeated the ; resolution calling- the bill from com mittee., was taken, the roll call showed that the Los Angeles Republicans were Indifferent to the party pledges referred to by Bell. Savage was the only vet eran programmer of the bunch that voted "aye." McCartney thoughtfully absented himself during the roll call.
