SACRAMENTO AND LEGISLATORS
GDVERNDR JOHNSON DEFENDS THE "INELIGIBILITY"
CLAUSE-JINGO IN CONGRESS IS '
READY TO GO TO WAR.
SACRAMENTO, Aptil '23. (Associated Press Cable) Despite
the eloquence of Secictnry of State Bryan, notwithstanding the earnest
and powerful protests of President Wilson, injhc face of the
almost unanimous opposition of the press of the Nation, in disregard
of the warnings of Theodore Roosevelt and in the knowledge
of the diplomatic tension that the act will create between Washington
and Tokio, it is believed now that the majority of the
of the California legislature is resolved to pass the Anti-Alien
Land Bill with the objectionable ''ineligibility clause" intact.
The Hecrctnry of state advanced the views of the President nt
p confeience of the legislators yesterday and presented the arguments
that make the proposed measure inimical to national and
international interests. He urged the legislature to go slow and
pointed out the fact that there existed no urgent political reason
vhy the bill should be passed at this session.
Johnson Defended Bill.
Governor Hiram Johnson, after a number of the members of
the assembly and senate had spoken at the conclusion of Secretary
Bryan's argument, addressed the conference and warmly defended
the 'clause which would make all those ineligible to become citizens
of the country ineligible to own or lease land within the State.
He announced that he differed radically with both the President, and
Mn Bryan, both as to the constitutionality of the clause and also
us to "itii advisability.
At the conclusion of the conference, tho secretary of state asked
that no definite action be taken by the legislature until he had Intel
an opportunity of reporting direct to the President and of receiving
n reply from "Washington. To this the legislators agreed.
