the causo of real temperance.
So far as tho principal liquor Inter
ests nro concerned In this lntest con
test, their attitude has been marked
by n conservative tono and consider,!'
fair play to men who carry largo In
estments in liquor stock to meet tho
demands of tho public.
This docsio't suit tho vlows of some
of our radical friends but It Is never
theless tho fact.
How mnnj of our citizens, worried
over prcsent-dny evidences of nntl
forclgu feeling, rcallzo that country
wide outbreaks against foielgncrs are
almost as old as the Nation?
Thfa Is re-called to public atten
tion by a discussion of tho nntl-Jap-ancse
legislation reviewed In "Tho
World Today" by Samuel Macclin
tock of tho University of Chicago.
Our "outbroaks" nro civilized expres
sions, except for tho riots, or a com
munity conviction that tho citizen Is
entitled to first place and preserva
tion against encroachments.
It Is worth noting that nono of
tho nntl-allen movements have been
long sustained with tho exception of
tho Chlncso exclusion.
"Thero lin.vo been threo wide
spread, nnti-forclgn movements In
this country previous to tho present
one," writes Prof. Maccllntock. "The
first of these culminated In the Justly
unpopular Allen nnd Sodltlon Acts
of 1798. Tho second came to a head
In tho early fifties In tho so-called,
know-nothing, all-Amerlcnn, or na
tivlstlc movements. Stricter Immi
gration laws, tho exclusion of aliens
from holding land nnd especially of
fice, a denial of tho right of tho
Federal Government to grant privi
leges to aliens by treaties if such
rights Interfered with tho domestic
Institutions of n Stute, wcro all urg
ed as a part of tho program of tho
time. This agltutlon soon passed
away, owing to tho abounding pros
perity nnd optimism ot tho country,
nnd to tho great controversies pre
ceding tho Civil Wnr.
"Tho third nntl-allen movement
was that which culminated In nn
net of Congress In 1887 prohibiting
nllens from acquiring and holding
real estate In tho Territories or tho
District of Columbia. It was claimed
ot the time that nllons wero acquir
ing vaBt tracts -of land In tho West
ern States und Territories and woro
building up a system of absentee
landlordism Incompatible with our
democratic Institutions nnd tho fu
ture best Interests nt tho Individual
American citizen. Tho supporters of
this Fodcrnl legislation confidently
expected that it would bo followed
by similar measures In h' Stales,
Trent Trust Co., Ltd.
will buy n new, modem home
in Manoa Valley. Easy terms
Trent Trust Co., Ltd.
Illinois did follow with ryi act In tho
same year providing for tho escheat
ot land acquired by aliens unless
such aliens should take steps within
a reasonable length of time to ac
quire American citizenship.
"Tho expectation, however, of any
widespread movement ot this kind
was doomed to disappointment,
though thcro were sporadic out
breaks from tlmo to time against for
eigners. Almost Immediately after
tho passage ot the Federal act, an
ngltntlon began for Its repeal or mod
Ideation. This was urged by the
very States and Territories which
had In the beginning clamored for
the law. They soon came to realize
that tho law worked to their Injury
by driving capital Into places whero
such statutes did not prevail. In
time, bo many modifications and ex
ceptions were made to the act, that
Its common-law provisions as to alien
ownership were, for all practical pur
poses, repealed, and tho Territories
stand on substantially the same basis
as to. such matters as do 'tho States
which never had nny prohibition ot
alien land-ownership. '
"During the eighties, also, thero
came a violent agitation directed
against tho Chinese In particular. In
the period of expansion following tho
Civil War, tho Celcstjnln caruo In
largo numbers, and were employed
In the rapid building up of the West,
nnd especially on the trnnscontlnent
al railroads. Uy tho early eighties,
bowevcr, tho feeling that tho Chinese
could never bo assimilated, and that
If allowed to contlnuo to pour Into
tho country they would, In a short
time, practically exclude the whites,

Many ot tho elements In tho situa

that the Administration Is trying to
profit by tho previous cxpcrlonco nud
to find a peaceful solution, honorable
to both nattonB.
"A Federal statute excluding Jap
anese from entering the country
would, supersede the treaty now In
force, but would undoubtedly prove
