Johnson Declares State Central
Committeeraen Merely Rep=
resent W. F. Herrin
Candidate Says He'll Support
Only Men Who'll Fight
Southern Pacific
Hiram W. Johnson, the Lincoln-
Roosevelt league's candidate for gov
ernor, has replied to the republican
state central committee's inquiry
touching his support of the republican
nominee In the event that Johnson
should not be successful at the pri
mary polls.
Johnson's reply is a scorching ar
raignment of the party governing
body, which lie declares is not entitled
to the consideration of republicanism,
because it did not adopt Chester
Rowcll's resolutions repudiating W. F.
Herrin's domination of the republican
party. Johnson declares that he would
not consider the committee's inquiry j
were it not for the fact that he be
lieves fconie of its members to be only
misguided. In conclusion he says that
he will support any republican candi- j
date who will honestly endeavor to
kick Herrin out of the republican I
j>arty and the government of Call- ;
Here is Johnson's letter: !
July 11, mo.
W. H. Davis, Secretary Republican
State Central Committee, San
Francisco. Cal.
Dear Sir — Your communication
dated June 27, I'JIO, containing a
copy of the resolution passed by the
republican state central committee
June _v. I^lo, reached my office July ;
2, 1910, and subsequently was for
warded to me while I was in the
northern part of the state. 1 have
just this day returned from the trip
•upon which I received your com
By the resolution referred to I •
am asked by your committee. "Will
you support and ucjfe the election
of the candidates who by the votes
of the republi<-ansA>f the state at
the primary election shall be de
dared the 'choice for the nomina
tion for governor and other state
officers 7"
At the same'time that the resolu
tion embodying this query was
pa.ssed a. resolution was presented .
to your committee by Chester \V.
Rowell which repudiated the influ
ence heretofore exercised by the
political bureau of the Southern
pacific company in the councils of
the party and in the government of
the state, and calling: upon all can
didates for republican nominations
• to declare unequivocally their op
position to this influence and their
purpose, if elected, by all means in
i their power to remove it from fur
\u25a0 {her influence in the politics and
• government of the state of Califor
. nia,
- The resolution offered by Mr.
Rowell was not passed by your
committee. In.iced. it was tabled,
and the committee thus acknowl
\u25a0;•' edged the influence of the Southern
. Pacific company in the councils of
— the republican party and the gov
' eminent of the state, and expressed
as unequivocally as if the fact had
been plainly stated that it preferred
.'\u25a0\u25a0 the candidates of the republican
party to maintain in power the
Southern Patific company and to
••\u25a0 continue its influence in the poli
tics and' government of California.
"••'lf your committee ever represented
any part of the republican party of
.. the state of California, it forfeited
its right of representation by its
• attitude in respect to the Kowell
'. .resolution.
Thf old Mosaic law is embodied
::- in- statutes of this state, that no
-. -man <kn serve under two masters.
:.-"No: .-"No official can at the same time
serve the people and the Southern
.\u25a0.'•.Pacific company. Jf any official un-
V.dertakes to divide his allegiance to
v" the .state with any interest, or if
:... any official recognizes as his mas
' ter William F. Herrin or the South
ern Pacific company, he can be
neither a faithful servant of the
people nor can he honestly admin
ister the trust that has been re
posed in him. Equally so, if any
member of the republican party
recognizes the supremacy in that
party of the Southern Pacific com
pany or William F. Herrin hecan
\u25a0 not faithfully or honestly repre
sent the republican party. The re
publican party is now. as It ever
has been, the party of freedom and
independence, the party of progress
and of good government, and any
organization that recognizes the
dominance of the Southern Paclflc
. company and William F. Herrin is
not republican. A subservient, order
taking politician, even though he
labels himself republican, is no true
republican. ,and no number of po
•. "litical servants of the Southern Pa
cific company and Herrin, posing as
• a republican state committee, really
represents republicanism or repub
>o tiiik m;pLßi,ir.\xs
I say to you, therefore, that your
committee is not a true republican
. committee, nor do I recognize it as
POch; and I say to each* of its In
dividuals who concurs In the atti
tude of the committee toward the
• Rovvell resolution, that he is not a
, true republican. Your committee
confessedly represents not the re
publican party, but William P.
Herrin and the Southern Pacific
company. Your communication
merits no reply from any free or
independent republican in the state
• of California; but. because I be
lieve there are members of that
. committee who have been deceived
and who are misguided, to them
us individuals I make this response
to the query presented to me:
I pass by the petty politics that
induced the passage of the resolu
tion and say nothing of the con
"tesriptiLle exhibited in
receiving an answer of one cancJl
1 date before sending the query to
'. otl»ers. I am a republican and
" .will continue to be a republican,
striving to have my party stand
'• tor the highest and best In our
• political life. The contest now be
ing waged in the state of Califor
nia is greater than any man, far
\u25a0transcends in importance any com
' mlttee and is superior to any mas
ter of any number of politicians.
. It is a contest for the freedom of a
' great state — freedom from William
,F. Herrin arid the Southern Pacific
company, *rho have debauched,
polluted and corrupted our state,
and shamed and mocked us before -
all the world.
My campaign, the success of
which is now assured, is to redeem
California from Herrin and the
• Southern Pacific company. I I be
-lieve with Theodore Roosevelt that
"the party man who" offers his al-'
'' le^isnce to party as an excuse for
blinuly following his parts', right
or wrong, commits a crime against
the* country"; and with Governor
• Hughes of New York when he said
to "stand for honorable candidacies,
. unpureh&scd and representative of
. tbe wisdom and best purposes of
\u25a0the part;.', and against bossism and
.«nd all that that word Implies."
I wi'l support and urge the «»lec- -
tion of any republican candidate for.
governor who honestly will i en
deavor to kick out of- the repub
lican party and the government of
the\*=tate of California. William F.

NAPA, July 12.— Hiram Johnson, re
publican, candidate for governor. 'made
I tour of the Napa valley today, clos-
August Herrmann,
Who Was Elected
Elks' Grand Ruler
Ing: with a largely attended meeting at
the Napa opera house in this city. D.
J. Brown pnesided at the meeting.
.Johnson ftayed the Southern Pacific
company and Herein mercilessly for
meddling in the politics of this state.
He urged the voters to rise and throw
off obedience to the dictates of the
political machine. He referred slight
ingly to the republican state central
committee and said he never would
submit to it or deal with it as long as
it had Herrin for its master. He de
clared for good roads and the run
ning of- the government free from cor
rupt influence.
Alex Gordon, Lincoln-Roosevelt can
didate for railroad t commissioner, was
present and said he stood for honest
government with proper control of
railroads. The Veterans' drum and fife
corps of southern California rendered
several selections before and during
the meeting.
XEW YORK. July 12. — Gifford Pin
chot announced today that he would
leave for California tomorrow to take
the stump in behalf of Hiram John
son, who is seeking the gubernatorial
nomination and is indorsed for the
honor by the Lincoln-Roosevelt league
of California.
Pinchofs announcement was made
shortly after a conference with Colonel
Roosevelt, in which Marshall Stimson
of Los Angeles also took part. Pinchot
said he wouJd make several speeches
in behalf of Johnson's candidacy, which
he indffcated was being strongly op
posed' by the old line republican or
ganizations of that state.
Neither Pinchot nor Marshal Stimson
would say that Colonel Roosevelt had
givt'n his assurance of support to John
son's gubernatorial aspirations, but the
fact that Pinohot's announcement came
within a few minutes after leaving
Colonel Roosevelt's office caused the
general belief among politicians that
Roosevelt indorsed Johnson.
Marshal Stimso-n said that the old
line republican '* organizations were
backing the candidacies of Charles F.
Curry and Alden Anderson. He de
clared the Lincoln-Roosevelt league
was seeking for a more representative
party government.
After making his announcement Pin
chot paid:
"I shall make four speeches in Cal
ifornia in behalf of William Krfit, an
insurgent candidate for the nomination
for congress.
"Mr. Kent is opposing Congressman
McKinlay, who seeks renomination."
Pinchot said he had already made ar
rangements to make one speech for
Johnson in California, but did not
know how many more he might make.
He said he would stop at Kansas City
i and address the Knife and Fork club
on "Conservation" July 15. It was be
i fore this club that Speaker Cannon
I made his attack on the insurgents.
