An Opinion on Tobacco
Not many years ago we would see
print essays on cigarettes and try
lg to blot out tobacco as was whis_
:ey. We all know that it is killing
?eople every day, but just because
tere is'money to be made in grow
lg it, people are planting it.
I suspect we will have tobacco
?owing all around us. There are so
lany other things that can be grown
we can not grow cotton which
rould do more good than tobacco.
Why all the little boys will be
:hewing and smoking and women
fwill do like other women where they
grow it in large quantities, and be
using snuff and smoking it in days
to~ come. Instead, if we leave it alone
so many of our people will not use
Growing tobacco looks nearly as
bad as the saloon did, for it is a slow
poison that saps the life out of peo
ple. We have seen men that would
stop chewing or smoknig tobacco for
a while and would look so much bet
ter and I am sure they felt better.
I have heard people say, "Why,
th? doctor prescribed it." That is all
right. Wait until he does. It takes
poison to kill poison, so I think we
should not begin growing tobacco..
Begin in time to think. Stop the
agriculturists from teaching them to
grow tobacco" and pay them to do
other things which will do more!

Japan Files Vigorous Protest
on California Plan to Alien
Honolulu, Sept. 23.-Gable ad
vices from Tokio to Nippu Jiji, Ja
' panese language newspaper here, re
garding anti-Japanese legislation in
California, report that the diplomatic
council has decided that Japan will
instruct Ambassador Shidehara to
register vigorous protest if Califor
nia passes the Japanese land laws on
which there will be a referendum in
November. The ambassador's protest
will be based on the ground that such
legislation is unconstitutional and a
violation of Japan's treaty rights, it
Japan's origijilal plan, according
to the advices, was to ask the United
States to appoint members to an Am
erican-Japanese commission, which
would effect a settlement of the Ja
panese problem in California and
ward off possible anti-Japanese leg
islation. This plan was abandoned
because it wa sbelieved it was too
[late for it to achieve any results.
The popular belief in Japan is that
the anti-Japanese legislation in Cal
ifornia will pass by a 10 to 1 vote,
according to the advices.
