Wasiiinotiix, April 29. Senator I

cession from I'lesldetit Wilson tn-dav in
the contest over the selection of a Col
lector of Customs for the Port of New
York. I'ollowlng a conference at the ;
While House this afternoon It was !
learned that Mr. Wilson had agreed to
hold the appointment open until Sen
ator O'Gorman can submit other n-imes
for the President's consideration.
It was thus established that Senator
O'Gorman has not been defeated In his
(lf-Vit !. iir.v.1,1 tlirt nixtnlnlinanl f
Frank L. I'olk. Mr. I'olk was recom- I
mended by Secretary of the Treasury
McAdoo. He assured the President that
In appointing Mr. Polk be would be tak
ing the CollcctorslUp out of politics.
This nrgument nppealed strongly to
the President and the result was that
he hud so nearly made up his mind
to appoint Mr. Polk that at one time
tho post Is snld to have been tentatively
offered to him. For Hevernl days. It had
been regarded as practically certain that
Mr, Polk's nppolntment would soon
be sent to the Sennte by Mr. Wilson.
Senator O'flormnn recommended six
New Yorkers to the President for the

. to proceed nt once with the en-
ISovernnr If h" had any reason for be
lieving t tin t Jap.in would declare war
If this legM.ulon was put through. Th
I Secretary replied that he did not believe
, there would be war In any event.
I "Then, what objection can there h
j to our passing the bill'."' the Covcrnor
Mr- IIr.v' r"I'lll(1 ,lu,t ''oc.iuse war
could be prevented gave no excuse for
wounding the pride of a friendly nation
and a people, with whom the 1'nlled
States desired to retain amicable rela
tion". Aside from the assumption that the
, national 'ebt of ,Iawn Is so gtent na In
preclude another war at this time, tho
belief expressed here Is that tho Federal
Government will act with the Japanese
Government in having this proposed Cal
ifornia statute declared unconstitu
tional, nnd that it was this procedure
Mr. Hryan had In mind when he replied
to the Governor's question that there
would be no war.
Secretary Ilryun announced to-night
thnt he would go to San Francisco and
return on Thursday morning to remain
until some detlnita action Is taken on
the alien land bill. '
Tho Governor and his leaders an
nounced they would pass the alien land
bill ns drafted to-day by Attnrney-Gen-eral
Webb. So determined Is the nttl
tltude assumed by the State adminis
tration that Senator Roynton, floor
leader In the Senate, gave nut the fol
lowing statement :
"It is my firm belief that the Leg
islature of California will pass within
the next few days an alien land bill
which by Its terms will provide that
only those aliens who are ellglhle to
citizenship under the laws of the United
Stntes may acquire land in Callfmrnin."
Mr, Bryan was nsked to-night for
somo expression nf opinion,
"Say that the only thing you could
get out of me." the Secretary said, "was
that I stated I came here merely to
transmit to tho Legislature the viewa
of the President, nnd that 1 am pleased
with the admirable spirit in which I
have been met."
At 9 o'clock both houses of the. Leg
islature met again In tho Assembly
Chamber for a final conference with tht.
Secretary before he leaves for San Fran
cisco In the morning. The hour of tho
conference was delayed because Mr.
Bryan was receiving the reply of tho
President, to whom he had transmitted
n copy of the proposed bill.
The bill Is as follows, In part;
Section 1. All aliens eligible tn citi
zenship under Ihe laws of the United
.States may acqulie, possess, enjoy, trans
I mlt and Inherit real property, or any In-
te.est therein. In this State In the sanil
manner and to the same extent as citizens
of the United States, except as otherwise
provided by the laws of this State.
Section 2. All aliens other than those,
mentioned In section 1 of this act may ac
quire, possess, enjoy and transfer real
property or any interest therein In tin
State In the manner and to the extent,
and for the purpose prescribed hy anv
treaty now existing between the Govern
ment of the United States and the nation
and country of which such nllen Is n citi
zen or subject, and not otherwise.
Section 3. Any corporation organized
under the laws of this or any other Statu
or nation of whlrh a majority of thi
members nre aliens, other than those speci
fied In section 1 of this net, or in which
a majority of the Issued capital stock is
owned by such aliens, may acquire real
property In this Statu In the mnnner and
to the extent and for the purpose (in
scribed by any treaty now exlatlng be
tween the Government of the United
States nnd the nation or country of which
such members or stockholders lire c'tl
zens or subjects, and not otherwise,
Other sections provide for proceed
Inns by district attorneys and foreschent
of land to tho State If held by aliens.
Col, Bryan laid the cornerstone for th
new Young Men's Christian Associa
tion building here this morning, and
during the remainder of the day until
late this evening he was engaged In
conference wltl. leading Democrats of
the Stale, with Dr. David Starr Jordan
nnd others. He has not said what hi
attitude will be upon the hill presented.
David Starr Jordan, president of Stan
ford University, who came to Sacra
mcnto at the suggestion of Secretary
Bryan to counsel with him, condemns
the bill which tho State administration
promises to pass. He says It carries
the sting of discrimination, which
might have been avoided If Bryan's ad
vice hud been heeded.
As Dr. Jordan nnd Bryan hnvo lieen
In accord In their utterances in the lust
two days It may be assumed that what
Jordan Kiys of this bill Is vvhol lirjun
thinks of It.
Bryan insists that he "hull not bo
quoted and refiibes to mnko public Um
tenor of despatches I'.ul puwl l.
