ALIEN LAND BILL
Measure Favored by Senate
Will Prevent Them Holding

BUT MEETS TREATY.
Expected to Pass Both Houses

SACRAMENTO, Cel., Aprtl .-Cell-fornla's
answer to President Wilson and
Secretary Bryan on antl-Japanese legis
lation la a bill which, while In reality
discriminates against the Japanese es
holders of land In this State, still. It Is
claimed, keeps within treaties between
the United State and Japan.
The measure, known as ths Webb bill.
It is believed, may meet the pending
situation and possibly be acceptable to
the Administration at Washington.
Action on she Webb bill was When
at midnight, within three minutes af

State Bryan, Gov. Johnson and the
legislative leaders, at which Mr. Bryan

bill was pending, met

measure the new draft known aa tbe
Webb act, which waa completed by Attorney-General
Webb yesterday. The
substitute wee adopted aa an amend
ment and the bill ssnt to ths printer
with a rush order.
GOVERNOR WILL SIGN THE
Owing to the absence of Mr. Bryan In
San Francisco, whither he went to-day
as the guett of tbe Panama-Peolflc Ex
position Company, It Is the plsn of the
Senete leaders to lake no further action
on the bill until Thursday, when It will
come up in the regular course of busi
ness and undoubtedly will be passed, It
It will then no to the Assembly and
Anally to the Governor, who has stated
that he will sign the measure at once.
The new bill Is believed to be drawn
In strict conformity with the treaty
between Japan and the United States,
but all efforts to secure an opinion
from Secretary Bryan or President Wil
son failed and th State leaders de
cided forthwith to proceed with their
plans for enacting It Into law.
The term "Ineligible to citlsenshlp,"
which Is the part so odious to the Jap
anese, was eliminated from tha new
measure, but the same result was at
tained by stipulating that all aliens
"not eligible to citlsenshlp" may ac
quire end hold land only In accordance
wtlh any treaty now existing between
the United States and their country.
DIDN'T GET "OPINION" FROM
BRYAN OR WILSON.
This. In' the opinion of leader, leeves
the Federal authorities no cause for
complaint. If the substitute bill, rushed
through at midnight, offends the Japan
