WASHINGTON, May 12. Die customs
court today decided that European na
tlons are entitled to the free entry ot
wood pulp and paper under "tho most
favored nations" clause of their com
mercial treaties with the United States
because the free entry privilege Is granted
to Canada under the only operative clause
of the Canadian reciprocity agreement.
The court also held that the T.'eaiury
department had placed a correct interpret
tatlon on tho Canadian reciprocity act
by Immediately admitting wood pulp and
paper free without reciprocal action by
Canada. Dissenting opinions were de
livered. '
Norway, Russia, Austria-Hungary end
Germany claimed the right of free entry
of wood pulp and paper from their re
spective countries. Former President Taft
declined to grant the request and referred
the question to the courts.
It cannot bo stated whether the Treas
ury department or the Department of
Justlve will appeal the case to tho su
preme court. It has been the attitude of
the government to oppose all appeals
from the customs court because the act
creating the court saye the decision of
the oustoms court shall be final. The
fact that .the question Involves the In
terpretation of treaties may cause the
government to appeal
House la Marking; Tims.
The tariff fight, shifted from the house,
will be renewed In the senate tomorrow
when the Underwood bill comes up for
reference to the finance committee. The
senate was not Jn session today.
pgThe house met today to dispose ot
what some party leaders rtfer to as
''chicken feed", with the announced pur-P,OS-
of adjourning almost Immediately
t'for three days, a beginning' of regular
adjournment for similar .periods until
tftSflrst week of June.
VsThe Idea is to mark time ponding the
tariff fight on the senate Fide of the
, capftol and preparation for currency
legislation. Meantime 'the democratic
majority of the vraya and means com
mittee, as the committee on committees,
will meet almost daily to frame the per
sonnel of the regular committees of the
house.
Will Meet Tn-ice Week.
The house was in session only a few
minutes. Even miner legislation failed
to materialize, and the series of three
days adournments was begun. The house
win meet next Thursday and thereafter
on Mondays and Thursdays until the
first week of June. Many members have
gone home with the understanding be
tween the leaders ot the parties that no
legislation Involving any disputed points
shalt be brought up in the meantime.
In. the senate some republican oppo
sition has appeared to the Penrose
amendment to force public hearings by
the flnkno committee. The development
Indicates that the democratic plan of no
hearings will be carried out, although
reference of the bill may be delayed while
the republican leaden debate the Pen
rose amendment for several days, begin
ning tomorrow.
Sub-committees of the finance commit
tee and Chairman Simmons continued
consideration today of protests and briefs
to Underwood schedules filed by varied
Interests.
PresWent Wilson does not expect that
the tariff bill will be amended In any
important particular, lie has not sug
gested that any schedule be reopened;
has riot been Informed that the senate
contemplates changing the work of the
house and is confident the measure will
pass the senate. Bo cettaln Is he that
such an end Is in sight that he probably
will make known informally his views
on currency this week
The president expressed these views to
day, but did not express himself as to
whether there should bo public hearings
in the finance committee.

JAPAN ARE FRIENDLY
President Wilson Says There is
Nothing Alarming in the Alien
Land Legislation
TREATY
OLATED
Japan
on Feeling
ion is Made.
PREVAILS
Question of NaturaliWzation Has
Not Been Discussed so Far.
WASHINGTON SEEKS DELAY
Kierntlve II (.pen California Will
Uo Mothliiic Until Some Fea
ture Can Ilr Smoothed
OTer.
WASHINGTON. May 12.-r resident Wil
son believes negotiations between Japan
and the United States over the alien land
legislation In California aro not In an
alarming stage, but that the interchange
of views thus far had been along frank
and friendly lines calculated to remove
tho appearance ot discrimination against
Japanese subjects.
Thb president, discussing the subject
informally today, took the position that
the Webb bill would not violate the
treaty between Japan, and the United
States. He intimated that Japan's pro
test was not founded on a claim that the
treaty would be broken In any way, but
upon the feeling that thero was an effort
to discriminate against Japan on the
ground ot their alleged Ineligibility to
citizenship.
Th nr.fclrimt rAVi.ftli.ri that tllA nues-
on ot naturalization had not yet entered
the discussion with the Japanese ambas
sador, but that, bt course, underlying the
bill, it was realized that tho federal courts
had not finally passed upon the question
of eligibility.
It was upon tho basis that Japanese
were not accorded tho privileges of citi
zenship that the appearance ot discrimi
nation written in the bill had ylsen, and
It was Intimated at the While House that
for the present, the hope whs that the
legislature in California either would ba
vetoed by Governor Johnson or delayed
by a referendum to prra(t , smoothing
over some features ot vwep1 tuatfoty
Frankness Prevails.
President Wilson endeavored to make
it plaldgthal the greatest frankness had
prevailed between tho two governments,
even to tho. abandonment ot many diplo
matic formalities. The conferences thus
tar between Secretary Bryan or' Presi
dent Wilson and the Japanese ambassa
dor were described as being those be
tween "on? gentleman ananother."
Intimations that the Japanese protest
itself was couched neither in vigorous
nor aggressive language, but was formal
and friendly In character, came from the
president himself during his talk today
and it was pointed out that the phase
"a very earnest protest," employed by
Secretary Bryan In hid message to Gov
ernor Johnson, was the description of
the note which-the American government
had entertained rather than the emphasis
ot the Japanese ambassador.
The president was disposed to talk
freely of the subject and appeared con
fident that a satisfactory adjustment
would be accomplished.

Eld gar 'Farslow, a youth about 19 years
old, blew Into the city on bumpers of a
freight car and was quickly arrested for
"mooching" his breakfast on Main street.
Judge Mlntener sentenced htm to Jail for

locked him up. After giving Parslow his
breakfast yesterday the young man was
ordered to get busy with the city gang
cleaning streets and gutters. After his
refusal he was returned to Jail and plaoed
on a bread and water diet. One day of
this raised the young man's appetite so
much that he pried the padlock off the
Jail door and "mooched" a meal. Chief
'Fahrenwald arrested him and returned
him to the lockup and a bread and water
diet. Pnrslow remained In durlnce about

Parslow made a contract to the effect
that If he could escape again tho chief
was to buy him a square meal. About
twenty minutes later Parslow appeared
to the chief of police, handed him tho
busted padlock and demanded the con
sideration of his contract. He got his
ham and eggs. He also was returned to
the jail, a new padlock was placed on the
door and handcuffs were fitted to his
wrists.
When Ed Stengor, the Hermosa cattle
man, heard of the young man's condition
he visited him. heard his story, paid his
fine and took him to his ranch, where ho
was given a -Job. Parslow was at one
time an asslrtant to a necromancer, and
