Gov Illrnm Johnson Issued n state
men' to-day defining his position and
fit of the Administration. He upheld
1 n Democratic doctrine of State rights
and said that California should lie able
to legislate, ns It saw tit without such
n stir of public opinion throughout
the whole country.
The Governor maintained that what
this State wns trying to do was only
what other Stntes had done and that
there was nu reason why California
fchouW not bo allowed to pass laws with
out Interference from the Kederal Gov
f rnment or any one, else. The ta(u
ment wild In part:
"While the Legislature very properlv
mnltitalned the right of the State to
kglslato on a matter clearly within Its
Jurisdiction 1 am sure thero Is no dis
position to encroach on the International
lur.ction of the Kederal Government or
J'jstly to wound the benslhilliles of any na

1 - rlmlnutlon to which California has
t'een subjected In the assumption that

by the nation Is offensive if even dis
iiisd by California.

SCUTARI WILL NOT

Xo Mat tor What Happens,
Powers Won't Allow NMdiolas
to Keep Fortress.
KT'ROT'K STILL FEVKRTS1
Anti-SInv Firebrands in Vienni
Milking Trouble Mny
Coinpensiite Kinp;.
SperM rablf Ptfpntefi to Tnr. St-v
I.onpon, April 25 -No mutter what
may happen In the present tense situa
tion In legard to Montenegro's attitude
following the surrender of Scutari, It
may be said with authority that King
Nicholas of Montenegro will not be nU
lowed to keep the fortress for which
ho has spent his country's funds and
the best blood of his lighting force.
It Is expected, however, thnt tho Pow
ers will allow time for the excitement
of the Slavs nnd anil-Slavs to cool off
before they have recourse to coercion In
any form,
The surrender of Scutari nnd
the dellance of tho Powers by
Montenegro eeems to have aroused
considerable unrest In Kurope. No one
denies that the problem Is complex
nnd has some ugly aspects, but tho
crazy pessimism of the anti-Slav quar
ter of Vienna is not retlecte.l In diplo
matic circles In London, where It Is
believed that a peaceful solution of the
question may yet be. found.
There w.ll be a conference of the
foreign Ambassadors here to-day to
consider the situation. This will be
presided 0er bv Premier Asqulth !n
the absence of Sir Kdward Grey, tho
foreign Secretary.
Nothing Is known as to the official
attitude of Montenegro. Tho stories of
her derlanco of the Powers and the re
fusal to evacuate SctitnrI originate
mainly In Vienna, which Is a hotbed of
Journalistic mendacity o fur as Bal
kan affairs are concerned, and these
reports ore regarded In som quarters
as deliberate falsehood.
There Is a report to which equal and
probnbly much more credence can be
attached to the effect that Montenegro
Is willing to yield Scutari If she Is com
pensated In some, other direction. Mon
tenegro Is said to have notified tho
Powers of her readlnesn to accept in
stead a specified frontier line which will
give her access from Lake Scutari to
the town of Herdlca, both banks of tho
ltoynr lllver and a strip of sea const to
the northwnrd of San Giovanni dl
Meduit.
It is worth while, however, to reiterate
that nothing is definitely known. The
utterances of the Vienna newspapers,
which because they are frequently used
are too readily npumed to olcn tho
views of the Government on all oc
casions, are, not necessarily "Inspired"
In this mutter.
That Austria has taken n strong line
on this question Is not denied here, but
tho assertion that she has Imposed a
time limit for Montenegro to evacuate
Scutari Is denied, nnd anyhow It cannot
be confirmed.
Tho Jubilation of tho Slavs through
nut tho Ilalkans as well as In Russia
and southern Austria Is giving pause
to their governments. The difficulties
In Austria-Hungary on this scoro are
especially acute. Theie hnvo boon wild
rejoicing at Prague, A grain and nu
merous other Slav and Czech centres
which have brought the demonstrators
Into serious conflicts with tho police, as
they often took the form of tierce an
tagonism to the Government at Vienna.
Delight over th' Montenegrin suc
cesses prevails with various degrees
of Intensity from Prague to Cracow
and liagiix,) and no government can
afford to flout this eentiment in a reck
less manner.
It Is thought, however, that time and
patience are on the side of thp Govern
ment nnd that the Slavs will cool off.
The Slav demonstrations wero renewed
at St Petersburg to-day. There was a
Te Deum service at the Kazan cathe
dral over tho Montenegrin victory,
which drew an Immense crowd. Tho
cavnlry kept the mob outsldo the cathe
dral moving nnd barred them from tho
Novsky I'rospekt. The Hustnn Gov
ernment was probably more perturbed
over public order at home when Scutari
was evacuated than over possible Euro
pean complications.

BRYAN TOOK POST
ON A "DRY" BASIS
F.xneted Wineless Dinner Privi
lege From President Before
Aeeeptinp Office.
WASMtvoTov, April 24. When Will
iam J. Hryan accepted the State port
folio In the Wilson Cabinet he stipulated
as a condition that he should hnvo the
privilege of giving wlneloas dinners to
diplomats. President Wilson cheerfully
left the matter to Secretary Rryan'a
own Judgment.
The Secretary 1n a formal statement
issued this afternoon makes It known
that all of his state dinners are to be
"dry."
Mr. Bryan' statement wns Issued on
account of tho comment caused by his
serving unfermented grape Juice and no
wine at his dinner the other night in
honor of James Hryce, the retiring Hrlt
Ish Ambassador, and Mrs. Hryce.
Here Is Mr. Hryan's account of the
first otllclnl "dry" dinner Washington
has seen In many a dsy:
"We did not Intend to magnify, by
mentioning It, the Importance of the
non-use of wine at the dinner given to
Ambassador Hryce Monday night, but af
the papers have made somo Innccurato
references to the matter the facts mignt
as well be known.
"This wns the first dinner which wn
have given to members of the Diplo
matic Corps and therefore the first time
when we came In conflict with the social
custom of serving wine at dinner.
"The seven other Ambassadors then
In tho city nnd their Indies were In
vited to meet Ambassador and Mrs.
Hryce, and ns all the gentlemen guests
present were from foreign countries I
thought It proper to explain to them tho
reason for our failure to conform to
what seems to hnvo ben customary In
this mntter.
"Hellevltlg thot the Issue should be
met frankly In the beginning, I told
them when we sat down to the table
thnt Mrs. Hryan and I had been tee
totalers from our youth, as were our
parents before us. and had npvor served
liquor at our table; that when the Pres
ident wns kind enough to tender me tho
portfolio of State I nsked him whether
our failure to serve wine would be any
embarrassment to the Administration
olid that he generously left the matter
to our discretion.
"My remarks were applauded by the
company and we never spent a more en
joyable evening.
"Thnt Is all there Is to the mntter, and
we. can consider tho Incident closed nnd
a custom established so far as Wc are
concerned."

Overeonie by Smoke.
The old Granite Stnte, hullt In ISIS,
once the I'nlted States frigate Alabama
nnd then the New Hnmpshlre, now
roofed over nnd need ns an armory by
the 1'ltxt Hatnlllon of the Naval Militia
In her permanent nnchornge off West
Ninety-sixth street, started burning nt
11:40 o'clock last night. Seventy militia
men were aboard, many of them nsleep.
One of them in trying to got to shore
fell off a guy rope Into tho Hudson nnd
Hwnm nshoro. About a dozen men wero
overcome, partially by smoke.
The, flames destroyed most of the
forward part of the ship, but were kept
away from the magazine. In which
considerable, powder wns stored. A
flreboat helped tho land fire fighters.
A second alarm was turned In at 12:30
o'clock thin morning.
The fire started In the paint shop Just
aft of the forecastle. It ate up the old
wooden hulk so fast thnt tho men who
were aboard had to hustle to roach a
placo of safety. Commander Hussell
ltaynor directed the movements of the
endets and the work of salving whnt
could be tnlwn ashore. Cadets Dalln
her, Lloyd and Hexmer succeeded In
potting five twenty foot cutters moored
on tho land side to n place of safety.
The magazine lies amidships below the
wnter line. When the flrpmpn reached
tho burning ship they had the magazine
flooded, nnd with the danger of an ex
plosion averted thov turned the strentns
of water on the tiro that was raging
forward.
Ited fire puffed from the hundreds of
portholes they really are windows, for
tho Granite State Is practically n house,
boat theso days and lit up tho misty
IIudon All Riverside Drive wntched
tho spectacle from windows of apart
ment houses und many automobiles
stopped.
J. Doyle, who wns stationed In the
signal station, wns the mnn who fell
overboard after trying to save the mag
azlne. He was attended by a surgeon
from the J. HooJ Wright Hospital, hav
ing been chilled by JiU,tidileu tumble
Into the river.
Tho blaze, which was spectacular,
drew many persons from their beds In
apartment houses along the Drive nnd
In hurriedly donned nttlrp the'y
stretched out along the pnrk wall and
nlong the railroad tracks nearer the
water.
Impetus was given the flames by the
burning of several barrels of oil In the
storeroom forward. As they caught lire
one after the other the flames leaped
higher and higher until the firemen
seemed powerless agnlnst the blnze.
The llreboat Duane came up In time
to aid the land forces In pouring water
Into the old frigate, and the enormous
quuntlty of wnter In her hold caused her
to settle by the head. It was thought
she would settle still more before dav
llght. The fire wan burning down closer to
the water's edge at 1:30 nnd from the
bow to a point about fifty feet nstern
she w.ts nearly destroyed down to the
water line.
The damage was figured nt about $50,
Oou. Several gutllng guns and stands of
small artni stored on tho boat wero de
stroyed and the water and smoke added
to the damage.
The Granite Stnte w.m built nt Klt
tery. Me., by thp Government In ISIS
and was rebuilt In 1S63 after her beauty
had been destroyed hi nn engagement of
the civil war. Several years nfter she
wns turned over to the Naval Militia her
name was changed from Now Hamp
shire to Granite State because the I'nlted
States had built the battleship New
Hampshire. In 1007 tho militia also got
hold of the I'nlted States cruiser New
ark, but retained tho Grnnlte Stnte ns a
drill nnd armory ship. At one time she
was stationed In the Rust Itlver off
Twenty-eighth street,

the broach between himself nnd Charles
K. Murphy to-day by vetoing tho Demo
crat State oi ganlzatlon's primary bill In-
I trodiiced by Senator Itlalivrlt and assert.
Tho Governor was caustic In his veto
mosrage, asertlng that the Hlauvelt
bill "begs the question," is a "betrayal
of tho people," a "glaring breach of
faith, patchwork, a fraud and a make
shift." lly far the most scathing, line In his
veto messngo is his characterization of
t. Hlauvelt bill as "a glaring breach of
I the pledged faith of party legislation."
When Gov. Sulzor learned that tho
are confirmed.
Then Gov. Sulzor, In high dudgeon,
shut himself up in his private ottleo and
wrote his veto of tho Hlauvelt bill. Th'j
bill had not been sent to him from the
senate, but he find his message all ready
wlM,n " ""Ived. and sent a messenger
, scurrying back upstairs with the veto.

Governor's veto message when lis con-
tents became known and took It m
i tangible evidence of the fact that Im
hereafter means to go ahead Independ
ent of Charles P. Murphy and the Dem
ocratic State organization. Two sen
tences especially led to tills conclusion.
Those aro:
"We have bemi given lendershlp dis
honorable to various political parties of
the State and wh have been given party
tickets which retlect this dishonorable
leadership In disgraceful seeiet alliances
between big business interests and crooked
and corrupt politics.
"The widespread demand for direct
primaries In our State found Its origin
mainly In the dissatisfaction rising from
the failure of our State conventions to
faithfully reflect the sentiments of the
party voters. Kvery student of recent
! political history knows this, and no one
knows It better than 1 do.'.'
Tho last t-ontence Is taken to refer to
