WASHINGTON. May I2.--Tlie fact
that Secretary Hryan haei add i eased
an appeal to Oov. Johnson of California
to veto the antl-allen land law. Inas
much aa the (lovernor ha, onofflolall
at leat. repeatedly declared hi pur
pose to algn the bill aa It passed the

here aa Indicating either that some
powerful Influence have been brougnt
to bear upon th (lovernor in the in
terest! of delay, or. more probably, that
the Wlladii Administration la perfect
ing Ita record.
The California-Japanese affair la ex
pected to take th following course dur
ing the next few day:
Oov. Johnson of California will sign
th bill passed by his Legislature, In
tended tn bar Japanese from owning
land tn that State, despite the protests
of the Federal (lovrnnient.
JAPAN'S PROTEST WILL SOON
BE MADE PUBLIC.
The protest Hied by the Japanese Am
bassador with Bes-retary of State Hryan
will be made public In order to show toe
courtroue and friendly tone of the note
A period of prolonged diplomatic ne
gotiation will follow. There are two
courses open. One Is to negotiate a
new treaty with Jupan which will pre
vent such local discrimination.
The other I a reeort to the rutted
Statee Supreme Court to determine
whether Japaneee are barred from cltl
snhlp as Mongolian. This s a racial
queetlon that has never been clearly
determined. Renewed factional agita
tion will take place In California. The
pending announcement la not satisfac
tory to either radical pro or autl-Jap-aneae
parties in that Slate Ka li will
eeek moro extreme legislation for Ita
point of view.
The present discussion relatee merely
to land ownership. The underlying gues
tlon of far greater Importance Is whether
or not Japanese can become citizens of
the Culled Stales. This problem Is ex
pected to develop soon and to cause na
tional agitation or grealoi ltnpurl than
the mere local land agitation In Cali
fornia. China has not yet said anything
to the Washington Government In con
nection with the Japanese protest, but
the new republic uf China would wel
come opportunity to lift some of the
stringent American barriers against Its
WILSON PLANS TO ORDER TEST

Ae the California Legislature la at tne

urgency will be removed, as Japanese

at It leisure embark upon negotiations
with the Japanese Embassy for a new

Should Gov. Johiiaon decide to sign
