Scramknto, Cal May 2. The alien
land bill will be put throiiKh both houses
to-morrow, but It wa remodellexl to-day
to allow three year leases, which was
done In deference to tho larpe compa

may be leased to Ineligible aliens for pe
riods not to exceed thtee years. It was
Introduced In the House last night and
It paesed the Senate to-day.
This amendment provides that aliens
shall hold leases for only three years,
hut It eventually ullows them to hold
land as Ioiik as they please, since there
Is nothing In It against renewal to an
other Japanese t-liunl.

The President's telegram of warning
in (lov. Johnson has made It clear thnt
Mr. Wilson expects to see the IsMie

So many constructions of the Webb

If an untl-Japunese bill Is passed.
There Is no longer much fear of hos

Is accepted generally that tho United
States has lost a friend through tho
activities of California's Legislature, hut
It Ik hoped now that the Issue will bo
