•fJovernor Hiram Johnson, Sacramento,]
California: The president desires me tf> i
*ay that while he fully recognizes the ]
light of the people of California to I
legislate according to their judgment j

it his duty to urge a recognition of the I
international character of such legis- I

strengthen the long-standing friendly!
relations existing between this country!

-respectfully, but most earnestly. ad-1
Vises against the use of the words "in-
Eligible to citizenship." He asks that j
you bring this view to the attention of j
•the legislature. He believes the senate
bill, as telegraphed to the department!
of state, is greatly to be preferred.!
That bill limited ownership to citizens;
■and to those who had declared their I
Intention to become citizens.

y Among the senate leaders Senators
-Blrdsall, Boynton, .Thompson and San-,
/ord are strong in declaring that other
-administrations than that of President'
'Wilson have done just what the presi
dent is now doing to adjust Japanese
■sentiments within the United States. %\
j- Secertary Bryan's expression of pref
erence for the senate bill cut straight
Across the ranks of the anti-alien
forces, leaving two factions that are
■Shout equal in strength. Whether
-either will be able to muster 21 votes
In the senate, where the fight is now
centered, is admitted by both sides as";
■doubtful. . v • i
£ On the one hand there are the pro
ponents Of the Thompson-Birdsall bill,
which proposes to limit ownership in
land to citizens- and those .-who have
declared their Intention to become citi
zens. It treats all aliens and corpora
tions alike, declaring, in case of the
latter, that a majority of the stock

have declared their intention, accord

Secretary Bryan. In his telegram,
"quotes President Wilson as saying that
this plan is greatly to be preferred. -, ; ;
-Opposed to this- measure are those
who would discriminate in favor of
Europeans and European capital, or
who advocate making the law apply
directly and' solely, to the Japanese.
-The bill passed last "Wednesday by the
assembly makes ; this/- ; discrimination
through the words "ineligible to citi
- Secretary Bryan's, message stated
that President Wilson : earnestly ad- j
vises against the use of these words.
-. Still another group, though small, is
made up of those who ara.* opposed to
any anti-alien legislation and will vote
against such a law in any form. There,
-fire at least sis of these In the senate,
including - some of the - administration
.leaders, and their predictions tonight
are that they will hold the balance of
power and be able to defeat the bills.
S Representatives of foreign investors
.and syndicates are making, a desperate
fight against any law that would affect
their interests, and : consequently their
attack has been centered ■'- upon the
Thompson-Birdsall bill—the one fav
ored by the Washington administra
tion. They declare; it would shut out
millions of dollars of /development
capital from abroad,'and the argument
meets with sympathetic response.
'" The alternative-is a law such as
President Wilson warns the legislature
against. i -- -
WOULD OVERRIDE: WILSON - y
3 Senator Campbell, democrat, favors
the exemption of European capital and
is willing,to override the wishes of
President Wilson. - '
-y "There is vno use to! try and beat
around the bush," he said, "this leg
islation is aimed, and rightly so. at the
Asiatics, both Japanese and Chinese.
*•£ "If we adopt* the Thompson-Birdsall
"bill, which puts all foreigners on .the

might soon grant the right, of citizen- ;

again, and at a time when. I am
•afraid, it would be , too late to legis
late against that* race with which we
can not amalgamate and which we are
at present trying to reach. "■•

not in violation of treaty rights, and;

-'Senator Leroy A. Wright Of San Di

bill, was Bet in his views of: the pro

he opposed any of the anti-alien bills
thus far offered and then "added:
J* "I don't see why /we should at this
time be trying to put through laws
that will be of no benefit to the state
and will bring: a. lot "of. trouble upon

question as to whether we should
enact laws that are detrimental to the
state and to the people Jof the state,

common sense would -save-us a deal of
trouble."' '.--?"■*/-,'-- : - l'->;.vy
Senator Boynton 5 was somewhat sur- i
prised when he read Ihe Bryan tele

California seemed set upon having'the

difficult to : predict ■Just' ; where '.'we will

that will be s equitable .Un every sense

an amendment to the constitution deny
to or abridge the right of alien Japan

reason that our declaration* of frights

those- of enjoying and defending life

I take it 'that the general declara

applies to all men in our state, includ

(Walther : vs. Robolt. 430 Cal.,;/: 185),
wherein, Interpreting the above quota

clares "that the people are such as are

' It follows from this -decision that

they are not of the people in'that sense,
they are.not of the people in so; far as

President Wilson and Secretary;Bryan,
following the ' precedent ,of previous

made c. public I both ~t in Sacramento \ and

the view of President Wilson that the
California assembly; bill might ;be con
strued as a violation of J treaty obli
gations with? Japan, 5 , while the senate's

jectionable, If alien land legislation is
to sbe enacted at all.. .

ognises the ; sovereign 4 right of , Cali

seled caution. -- > ; vy; y.y::~.y\:'■■■ r.-»
The telegram and other Information
from official circles i lndicated; clearly,
that the provisions -in the - assembly
bill by which aliens "ineligible to
citizenship'; would be,prohibited from
owning land were 1 regarded as a \ dis
tinct discrimination against the Jap
anese who at present are -denied the
right of naturalization.
| -The language of the senate bill re
stricting ownership of lands to-'citizens
of the United States or aliens who have
'"declared their Intention of 'becoming
citizens'' is approved by the president,
as he has; discovered that this Hs; the
phraseology of the statutes ' already in
force lin New York. Delaware. Kansas,
Minnesota. , Kentucky, .* Washington,
Missouri and; the District of Columbia.
FOR JAPANESE* OWNERSHIP : ->..'-
•-> Incidentally /all /these" laws make It
impossible 1 * for Japanese i. to own land
until | they, are able to declare their

that they, were not "of white or Afri-1
can descent." ? /*,?"-' ''■''.-■> .-.'■'-.■'-: - .'-'-.
S By enacting a law similar to those In

would not embarrass the federal" gov
