George A. Van Smith
The pride of Senator Charles M.
Belshaw is to be humbled to furnish
Lieutenant Governor Warren R. Por
ter the political revenge or vindication
that is dearer to him even than the po
litical ambitions he hugs tenderly to his
Porter will Berdmed by Governor
Giiiett tomorrow or Tuesday to the
place on the State Prison Board to
which Pardce nominated Senator Bel
»li»w as one if his eleventh-hour ap
pointments. The Belshaw nomination.
with the rest of the Pardee batch,
was withdrawn by Giiiett a few days
after hfs inauguration. Some of Par
fi^'s selections have been ratified by
<;il!eit, but t..e names of Senators Bel
f haw and Matto*. named for U.e Prison
Board and State Harbor Commission,
respectively, will not be again pre
sented to the Senate for confirmation.
Porter considers his appointment to
the Prison Board both as & vindication
and a direct slap at his most despised
political enemy. Oeorge C Pardee. The
Lieutenant Governor declines to discuss
the probability of his nomination, but
that it will be made ifi an open secret.
Porter is a good hater. When Pardee
dropped Porter from the Prison Board
four years ago he stirred /.i enmity
In the Watson vilie mans breast that
will not down. From that day to the
last day Porter consented to talk about
th« Prison Board, and that was very
recently. he has consistently and
vehemently insisted that Pardee broke
faith with him. Whenever he has had
an opportunity to orate on the base
nrss of the ex-Governor he has been
there with perfervld language most
of which has never been received in
newspaper society. Porter says that
th* things he has paid about Pardee
are mild in comparison with what he
raid to him When hi* cherished seat
at the Prison Board table was pulled
from under him by the Governor, who
did not employ, much of his character
istic procrastination in flagging Por
ter for ex-United Ptates Senator C. W.
Felton of Mrnlo Park. Porter prompt
ly ttarted out on an indefinite cruise
for vindication. An appointment to the
Prison Board v.as his port. ' Now he
must take Belshaw's scalp to land, and
while in justice to Porter he really
dislikes to he the Instrument of Bel
ehaw's humiliation, the deal Is to go
In all probability If it were, not
a dee! involving a political promise,
made before th« campaign, the Porter"
appointment would not be made. Gll
lett likes Belshaw. So does Porter.
It is true that Belshaw .was a Parde*i
man. but It is also true- that neither
Porter nor Giiiett had any Idea that
it would be Belshaw's comb that would
be cut until Pardee surprised them' by
naming the Contra Costa Senator to
the place of J. H. Wilkins. the San Ra
fael Democrat, whose term had expired
a full year befot*.
It If not pleasant medicine for Bel
ehaw and a tentative plan was on foot
among his friends In the Senate to op
pose the confirmation of Porter when
his name came to the Senate. It has,
however, apparently" been abandoned,
as the Senators who were expected to
figure In the opposition admitted to
day that they had 'changed their minds.

Walter Macarthur Scores
Schmitz for Having
McCarthy Faction Supports
the Mayor and Wins the \
v ictory
One. Declares for Further
Agitation and Another
Thanks Executive
After a bitter fight between two
factions . yesterday afternoon the
Japanese and Korean Exclusion
League adopted two resolutions, one
to continue the agitation for the en
actment of a Japanese exclusion law,
and the other thanking Mayor
Schmitz and the. Board of Education
for their work in Washington in con
nection with school segregation.
The first, which was introduced by
Walter Macarthur of the Coast Sea
men's Journal, was not opposed.' The
second, which" was'first presented as a*n
amendment to* Macarthur'* resolution,
was offered by P. H. , McCarthy." .
Macarthur at once took, the floor in
opposition to tacking:"' thanks to any
one on to the end of his resolution.
He requested that the propositions be
considered separately, as he.'for one,
could not conscientiously vote for Mc-
Carthy's offering and was of the opin
ion that confusion misrht arise. in the
minds of . the people by compounding
the two. .
Throughout the heated debate which
followed Chairman {Tveltmoe Indicated
that his sympathies were with Mc-
Carthy, but he ruled* that the two reso
lutions be considered and voted upon
separately. '"\u25a0
— A motion was then made to refer the
McCarthy resolution to .the executive
committee for an investigation as to
whether or not a vote of thanks was
due Schmitz and the board. Division
was called for on the motion. - This
resulted in 29 votes for and 29 agaijist
the motion to refer, which was de
clared lost by the chairman. '
During the long debate on the Mc-
Carthy, resolution a number, of dele
gates became weary and left the' ball.
When division was called for on. tha
question of thanking the officials the
vote «tood 49 to 9. Macarthur and. the
delegates for the teanißters' and sailors'
unions voting "no."
Several. of the speakers declared that
politics had been introduced at a. meet
ing of th« league. Delegate Gallagher
went so far as to hint that those who
had been responsible for the "stirring
up of factionalism were moved by ul-'
terior motives. The war of words grew
fiercer as it; progressed until, Just .be
fore adjournment. Chairman JTveltmoe
almost lost .control of the excited body.
Tveitmoe explained h!s attitude;
toward the" end of the controversy, by
relating an interview he had: had with
the Mayor on the latter's 'return from
Washington. He said that Schmitz had
told him President Roosevelt had given
his personal- assurance that he would
attempt to have a Japanese exclusion
law pass»d at the next session of Con
gress and that he would do everything
he" could to carry out . the wishes of
Schmitz had also said, according, to
Tveltmoe, that when^the telegram from
Tveitmoe to Schraitz. asking^if * the
President -wanted to humiliate " the
American flag, was handed to President
Roosevelt during - the conference on
February 10. the President exhibited
the greatest rage, demanding," of
"Who is this man who dares insult
the President of the United States?" \u25a0' '
He pounded the ; mahogany 'with his
gavel "and. ; as Tveitmoe J quoted Schmlta,
