WON'T MAKE ANSWER

State Department Wants Note
on California Controversy
Wasiiikoton, June 30. The text of the
United States answer to the last Japanese
note In the California alien land contro
versy, which was to bo made public this
week, will be kept secret for some time.
As It Is known that thn answer of the
United States Is practically an invitation
to Japan to advanco further atgumcnts In
tho controversy In accordance with the
suggestion In the note of August 2C last,
which stated that Japan reserved the right
of further suggestion for settlement of
tho question, the reason for tho State De
partment's request Is Inexplicable except
on the ground that the Oovernment wishes
to avoid further public agitation at
Tokio, Juno 30. Tho leading Japa
nese newspapers oxpreas unanimous dis
satisfaction to-day with Amerlcn and
fear that Japan's case In the present ne
gotiations is hopeless. Although the
more moderate Journals discuss tho mut
ter soberly and apparently with tho Idea
of not Inflaming the public thcro Is evi
dence of a strong feeling even among the
moderates that tho time has come when
tho status of Japanese, subjects living
abroad mut be determined.

Porte Leaves To-nijrlit for New

About July 20.
ItAMMONDsronT, N. Y Juno 30. -The
America got off tho water to-night with
1,840 pounds of useful load. Mr. Curtlss
nnd Lieut Porto are satisfied that she will
carry sulllclent load for tho longest leg of
the transatlantic flight, Newfoundland to
Lieut. Porte will lcavo here to-morrow
night and will sail Friday on the Hod
Cross Line steamer for Newfoundland.
The America will bo overhauled at tho
Curtlss factory and shipped from New
York on July 11. Tho actual flight will
be started about July 20.
The trials to-day were satisfactory, ill
tITbugh no attempt wais mado at any tlmo
to make an actual flight Tho only troubto
with tho America bus Imen In getting her
to plane along tho surfaco of thu water.
Sho did that to-night after several changes
had been made. In tho hydroplane hoard.
trhe Inst trial was made nt 9 o'clock
to-night by tho aid of a Jlttio light from a
half moon. Sho carried no lights and
could not be sewn thirty feet from shore.
Nothing but the Incessant purr told those
on shore that she was skimming tho sur
faco of Lake ICeuka at sixty miles an
"We cun get off the water now with
enough fuel uml accessories for a twenty
hour flight." Mr. Curtlss said to-night.
"That Is what wo have been aiming
for. I won't say that she Is doing now
all we want her to do. Sho will do
more boforo wo are through with her,
but futuro changes will merely be taking
her back to tho factory and perfecting
what wo have already put on. The trials
to-night were very satisfactory."
Tlie total weight of tho America ns.
she planed tho water to-night was 4.R90
pounds. Her useful loads was 1,340
pounds. For a twenty hour flight sho
need 1,1"," pound of gasolene nnd a
total useful load of 1,21 pounds.
Hut Lieut. Porte wants to carry more
gasolene than Is absolutely necessary for
twenty hours, although he will not take
the full .IIS gallons that the America's
tanks will "holrl.
The bottom of the America Is patch
work now where different water ptano
surfaces have been attached nnd re
moved. Tlie surfaces that have been
found most efficient aro wldo llns at the
bottom of tho hull under the cockpit
Thc will be rebuilt, smoothed down nnd
slightly widened, which should give even
New steel covered propellers designed
especially for the Amerlcn will b.) tried
out by Lieut Porte to-morrow. These are
expected to give greater etllclctt-y. Then
the testing will be over until the machine
Mr. Curtlss said to-night that It proba
bly would 'be necessary to start this Amer
ica against a wind to get her off the
water. Hut no difficulty on that score Is
anticipated In Newfoundland.
The trial to-night was tho third test of
the America to-day. In the second trial
ubout 8 o'clock to-night sho planed along
I the water surface nil right, but she
Jumped and dived like a porpoli-c. The
removal of the centre hydroplane section
obviated that dlfllculty.
William K. Doherty nnd Francis S.
Wlldman tested Lieut. Porle's aneroid to
night by ascending 3,300 feet In n Curtlss
flylnf boat. This Is considerably higher
than the record for flying hoats, although
the flight was unofficial.
