By Associated Press.
SAORAM BNTO, "Cnl., January' 2ft.
The unanimous passage of the bill of
tho assembly for tho prop'osed constitu
tional aniendmont providing ior direct
primaries and tho adoption by tho sen
ate pf a resolution bearing on tho Jap
anese issue, largely occupied the time
nf the legislature today.
Tho senate without debate adopted
the majority resolution protesting
against tho interference of the federal
government in the school affairs of this
state, requested the governor and attor
n oy general to do all things necessary
to protect and, save the rights of the
staio and commended them for tho no
tion they had already taken.
Botji tho minority and tho majority
resolutions wore substitutes iu the na
ture of compromises, all harh criticisms
and ariaigaments having been climin
atod. The dilToronco .was principally in
the matter of phraseology, 'the minority
resolution reported by the Democrats
protesting ngninst the "president in
terference" instead of "federal gov
ernment. ' '
There was a decided chnngo in tho
bellicose attitude of senators who were
supposed to be for more radical action
and tho expected arraignment of Presi
dent lloosovelt and the federal govern
ment failed of development.
An attempt to amend the minority
resolution to contain a clause protesting
agaiust tho naturalization of Japanese
was quickly ruled oiit of order.

The men in question were Arthur S.
Campbell, Superintendent of telephone
construction, and Harold A. Faire, pub
lisher. District Attorney Jerome said: "The
rcasjons for this action will not be made
public, but are of a business nature."
Faire created a mild sensation when ho
stated that he was utterly in ignorance
of any reason why he was asked to step
down. Campbell declared that ho had
too much respect for the court to give
an interview. It is generally reported
that Campbell had asked to be relieved.
He begged to be excused when first
placed on tlio jury.
