"There are two drawbacks here at

floating population such as the south
affords in its negroes. We may be able
to overcome this however, by using the

Ad Valorem Attacked.
In the debate last nijrht, the Repub

of changing the basis of rates from the

STATE RESERVES ALL
SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 30. An
amended alien land act, drawn in
strict conformity With the treaty
with Japan, which will prevent Japa
nese from owning real property in Cali
fornia, passed the California senate as
a substitute for the pending legisla
tion by a unanimous viva voce vote.
Odious Term Not In Bill.
Attorney general Webb drafted the
new measure at the suggestion of gov
ernor Johnson. The term "ineligible
to citizenship," which is declared by
secretary Bryan to be odious to the
Japanese, is not included, and Pro
gressive Republican leaders are confi
dent that they have arrived at a solu
tion of the problem that will receive
the endorsement of president Wilson.
All Aliens Treated Alike.
The principal features of the bill are
All aliens eligible to citizenship may
acquire and hold lands in the same
manner as citizens of the United
All other aliens may acquire and
hold land "in the manner and to the
extent and for the purposes prescribed
oy any treaty now exiting Between

Follow Terms 01 Treaty.
Attorney general Webb worked upon
the theory that there could be no ob
jection to writing into the California
statute the specific limitations of the
Japanese treaty of 111. Dnder the
terms of this treaty, Japane subjects
are permitted to own "houses nd lands
for residential purposes, , factories,
manufactories and shops," according
to Mr. Webb. Another, clause' permits

federal government to confer citizen
ship rights upon the Japanese," said
senator Thompson, a leader of the pro
gressives. "Feeling in California has
reached an acute stage, and such a step
by the government undoubtedly would
result in reprisals of various kinds,
with far reaching consequences."
Act on Bill Thursday.
Owing to the absence of secretary
Bryan in SanFrandsco, where he went
today as the guest of the Panama-Pacific
Exposition company, it is the plan
of the senate leaders to take no fur
ther action on the bill till Thursday,
when it will come up in the regular
course of business and undoubtedly will
be passed, it is said.
It will then go to the assembly and
finally to the governor, who has stated
that he will sign the measure at once.
Bryan Fleaed "With Treatment.
"I shall take back to Washington to
president Wilson a message of how
California has treated his representa
tive," said secretary Bryan last night to
members of the assembly and governor
Hiram W. Johnson, who were guests of
speaker Young at a dinner.
"What a delightful message It will
be, too. I will tell him how the legis
lature and the governor greeted his
envoy in ine same spirit In which he
was sent I cannot lielp but feel
gratified at zny reception."
Secretary Bryan highly eulogized

ASKED TO COME
AND MAKE SPEECH
PHOENIX. ARIZ., April 38. That
three-cent fare bill is causing all
kinds of trouble. Apparently the
senate is as far as ever from agreeing
to the action of the house in eliminat
ing the emergency clause.
Tuesday the conference committees
submitted two reports. One .was to the
effect that the senate agree to all the
amendments of the house except the
elimination of the emergency. This
was signed by Davis, Breen and H. R.
Wood, the senate conference commit
tee, and by Harry Johnson, of the
house committee. Barker and Kelton,
of the house committee, recommended
that the senate also agree to the elim
ination of the emergency clause.
The majority report plainly was
pleasing to the senators when it was
read in the upper house. No one sug
gested that the senate recede from its
There was some discussion, however,
in regard to another amendment The
house changed the wording of that sec
tion giving the corporation commis
sion authority to grant any railroad
.corporation immunity from the three-
cent rare law. The senators were not
quite sure what the changed wording
meant and referred the bill back to
the conference committee, with in
structions to report today.
"Bis Five" Breaks Up.
The action of the senate on the local
option code, senate bill 9, has had the
effect of breaking up the "big five,"
as Cunniff, H. R. Wood, Kinney. Rob
erts and Lovin have come to be known.
Lovin is no longer a member of that
apparently unbreakable combination.
On practically every bill of any im
portance that has come along Cunniff.
Wood, Lovin, Roberts and Kinney have
voted together. When Cunniff couldn't
oepend on anyone else he could depend
on his four friends. Even Chase, who
usually defers his vote unless ne knows
how the president is going to vote, has
differed with Cunniff at times.
But the Ciltuple alliance is no mora
Lovin says that his friends did not
stand behind him on the local option
code, therefore he can no longer be
counted In with the "tig five."
Lovin is no prohibitionist and he
wanted the local option code to go
through just as it. first passed the
senate. When it was withdrawn from
the house for amendment it was over

tions. Sims wanted 'various changes.
BUI Is Jumbled.
The judiciary committee made a re
port with amendments to make the
law conform with the old statute. Now
the statement is made that the bill
does not conform to the old law. The
senators are not exactly sure what
they did pass. Some claim that if a
single precinct whether within or
without an incorporated city, goes dry
there cannot be another election in
that precinct until all the rest of the
county goes wet. The wording of sev
eral sections is peculiar and several
senators privately asked code commis
sioner Sam I Pattee to look over the
bill and tell them just exactly what it
does mean before It comes up for

An attempt to kill that measure
failed in the senate committee of the
whole yesterday. Cunniff used the
strongest language he has employed
on the floor this session, denouncing
the bill as "absolutely and utterly ex
travagant." but a motion to postpone
indefinitely was beaten, 10 to 7.
This is the bill creating the state
reclamation department and providing
for a 320,000,000 bond issue. An ap
propriation of $10,000 a year is made
to set the department on its feet
Discuss Reclamation BUI.
Senator C. B. Wood, who introduced
this bill for Brown at the second spe
cial session, made the first talk in Its
behalf yesterday. He pleaded for the
development of the state's agricultural
resources, and declared that the Brown
bill provided a way for creating thou
sands of happy homes, of attracting
hundreds of thousands of people to the
Brown spoke along similar lines, ex
plaining that the state Itself will not
have to pay anything more than the
310,000 a year to put the department
on its feet.
Worsley, who was In the chair, took
the floor to urge the adoption of the
bill. He predicted that if it were put
into effect Arizona's population would
double in three years.
Cunniff assailed the bill. Wood re
plied that Cunniff was mistaken.
Wessel's motion to postpone indefi
nitely was defeated by the following
votes, only Chase. Kinney, Pace. Rob
erts. Wessel, H. R, Wood and Cunniff
voting to postpone.
Motions to recommend the bill for
regular course and to refer to various
committees followed in quick succes
sion. Sims objected to its being taken
off the committee calendar and sot
what he asked for.
Brown is claiming that when his bill
is placed in final passage it will have
11 votes behind it. He is counting on
