(Jiiliforniu will, ultimately, govern
tlie Japanese situation, just the same.
Tliis is a matter tliut concerns Call
forniu und tlalifornians and one that
they will settle just as the south' set
tled the negro question.
When tin; south first began to re
cover from the cll'ects of the civil war
and to regain hold on southern affairs,
it was of necessity, in justice and pro
teciion to the white race, that eerlain
laws and restrielions lie put into foive
that would hold the negro in his phue.
Then, as now, the uninitiated and un
informed people of the north were
wont, to meddle where the had nocou
eern, and for their pains thc have
greatly injured the cause of the negro,
not that the southern people have act
ed through prejudice or retaliatory
feeling, hut because the seiiliment and
agitation of the north has instilled
within the nogro the wrong feeling
and made him less perceptible to his
We suppose the people of the east
are about as ignorant and uninform
ed on the state of affairs in Califor
nia as the north was of conditions in
south. We are eontident that most
ot the eastern people have a better
opinion of the Japanese than they de
serve and would feel little restraint in
dining with him a la Hooker Washington-Roosevelt
stlc or of allowing
their children to associate with them
in school just as certain portions of
the north do with the negro to this
goodda. We know from personal
observation Unit in main places in
the north the negro is held on a social
equal, that the whites and blacks in
termarry, that they dine together and
mix their children in the schools.
Hut a period in the south where the
negroes are numerous would show
these same people the error of their
In .respect to the negro California
accords him even more uniform treat
ment than the north, because, princi
pally, there are so few of them. Thc
do not line with the negro or receive
him on social equality, but from our
observations, the negro is admitted
to all the common schools of the state.
Hut with the Japanese, hinese
und Mexicans (Cholos; the shoe is on
the other fool. These people are then
in such number that the same feeling
is created in the California!) that the
superabundance of negroes in the
south creates in the southerner, and
the California!! sees and feels the duly
to his own race, to his ollspring ami
to his country to create anil to main
tain a dividing line, and in this ell'ort
of California to enact certain laws
looking to the protection and to the
welfare of their own race, their homes
and their country, we feel that the
east has little concern, and that all
this talk about the ",e)low peril,"
war, etc., is only an open invitation
for Japan to show her teeth. If the
American people had inner shown the
white feather, it they had never dis
played a dread or weakness, possible
war with Japan would bo much more
remote, and it seems to us that we are
lacking in national dignity when we
give Japan cause to entertain the idea
that we must receive Japanese into
American institutions regardless of
any choice of our own.
We do not sai, at the present time,
thul if certain measures were under
taken in California that war would
not result, because the acts of Koose
volt In meddling in these affairs has
established a precedent and opened
the way, but wo do believe that if
California had been permitted to sot
tie the matter as sho at llf.it started to
do und the nation had stood llrm, .la
pan would have uccoptod the result,
us she must do, sooner or later, when
California concludes to bo master of
her own domain und like the south
enact und enforces such laws as the
THE PUBLIC- SQUARE.
It is a pity that our people cannot
take more interest in matters looking
to the advancement, comfort and beau
ty of the town. Most every one knows
what ought to be done without being
told, and It is disheartening to us to
give our space, energies and efforts
trying to bring the people to action
and meet with no response.
Now is the time to plant trees nlong
the streets and avenues, and particu
larly in the public squure.
Eleven years ago when the Argus
was first started one of the llrst ques
tions to be agitated was the beautif.v
ing of the public square. Just imag
ine what a beautiful park we would
have now if trees had been planted
eleven years ago? Hut the people
were indilferent then us now and
through all these years it bus been
the same, yet our people sit around
on the street corners with wry faces
and moan and lament because the
town is no better.
The trouble with our people and al
ways has been is that they let too
many opportunities puss, and with
these passing opportunities the years
There is but one way to have a town
and that is to build it. Our people
must learn, if we ever have si town,
that some ell'ort and energy must be
developed and some activitx shown.
You can rest assured that no town
will ever 'tow of its own accord. The
people in a town iniisi expect to draw
others to it b. having some induce
ment to oiler; it must be shown a de
sirable place for homes, for business;
it must have good schools, good
churches, good streets, good sidewalks
jet's do something that is the word
and the set. DO.
Noti:: Since setting the above in
tpe h. C. Averill has given over his
entire advertising space to a special
and strong appeal for the iinproc
ment of the public square, and '"Jack"
does not onlj make this appeal, but
he comes (bwn with s23 cash and
promises to plant live trrees. This
certainly ought to bring action on
this long negluMed matter, and we
fill J believe now that the square will
be taken care ol. I

be fully equal to the occasion, from the
way he is starting oil', ami as he is a
man of good staying qualities we can
look for him on the home stretch.

Prohibition seems to be attracting
greater attention in the south than in
the north. In this respect there aie,
some questions in our mind that some
charitable fellow might answer, audi
one of them is why the north is not a i
leader in this reform.
The people of the north are good
people. Thc are patriotic. They
fought and gave their blood to pre
serve the I'nion. The north hits the
best farms, the best factories, the best
schools and churches, the best cities,
the most monei , and the north exer
cises the greatest powers over the na
tion. Hut in the matter of prohibition
it is left for the south to lead.
