William .Tennines Bryan has rais
ed tho race question In the South and
tho race question on tho Pacific coast
as two obstacles to radical centrali
zation of authority In the federal
government at Washington. In the
second installment of his debate In
The Header Magazine with Senator
Albert J. Beveridge of Indiana. Mr
Bryan continues to defend the rights
of tho Bcporato States to deal with
tho questions which seriously affect
them and ho calls for extension of
the federal laws only to supplement
the Mate laws and not to obliterate
beni. Senator Beveridge on th?
'?I her hand calls more strongly than
over for the increase of federal pow
er and bit'orly assails the action of
the people of San Francisco in segre
gating Japanese children lu their
schools and declares that the presl
lont's an it mle in dealing with San
Francisco w;i* promoted by his de
sire "to avert a national war."
Mr. Bryan, who replies to Mr. Rov
erldgo's fl rsl article, entitled "Tho
Nation," declares that Senator Bev
eridge presents badly and without
rpuiliflcatlon the position of the ad
vocates of eenlrull/.atlon. Taking up
. be Senator's argument that tho peo
ide have nothing to fear from ex
tension of fedoral powor because tho
fedoral government ls tho people.
Mr. I'.ryan presents arguments ll d?

"Of cour e. the people are not go- ,

iipposo tho people of ono section do

" Tho race question on the Paclflc
