"Hon. William J. Bryan, Secretary of
Btate, Washington. D. C: Your very
courteous telegram relating to the alien
land bill reached me late Sunday night.
X take It from our conversations and
tout reauest made to me to withhold
executive action until opportunity was
accorded for the presentation of sugges
tions from the federal government that
Tour telegram embodies what It was your
wish and the wish of the president to
say to us before final action.
"In this response It Is my design most
respectfully to present the situation from
our standpoint and the viows that ac
tuated our legislature in passing the bill
and that Impel me to sanction it.
"For many years a very grave proto
lem. little understood in the east, has
confronted California; a problem tho se
rlousness of which has been recognized
by statesmen in our nation and has been
viewed with apprehension by tho people
. f this state.
Cites Alien Clause.
When the present constitution of CaV
lfornla was adopted more than thirty
years ago It contained the following
declaration: 'The presence of foreigners
Ineligible to become citizens of the
United States Is declared to be danger
ous to the well being of the state and
the legislature shall discourage their
tmmleratlon by all means within Its
power.'
"Of late sears our problem from an
other angle has become acute, and the
agitation has been continuous In the last
decade In reference to our agricultural
lands, until affirmative action In an at-
I tempted solution became Imperative. This
; attempted solution is found in the action
Mjf our legislature in the passage of the
Alton land bill. .
"In the phraseology of this bill, In
' (hose whom It affects, in Its scope and
la its purpose we believe wo are within
oar legal and our moral right, and that
we are doing only what is Imperatively
demanded forythe protection and pres.,
ervatlon of our state.
Treaty Rights Regarded.
m this enactment we have kept ever
in mind our national good faith as evi
denced by existing treaties and our de
sire and anxiety have been to act only
In such fashion as would commend us
to our slEter states and would Justify
us to our fellow countrymen.
"The objections to our bill are based,
first, upon the treaty obligations of the
nation, and. Eecond, upon the assertion
that our act Is offensive and discrimi
natory. The protest to our measure, as
your telegram states, comes from the
representative of Japan. The bill that
Is now before me, as you know, provides
substantially in its first section that all
aliens eligible to citizenship under the
laws of the United States may acquire
real property In the same manner as
citizens of the United States, 'and the
second section provides that all aliens

No Military 'Secrets
Contained in Plans
Stolen from Bureau
WASHINGTON. May 14.-Dctectlves In
vcstigatlng the theft of plana for the
electrical wtrlhg of the dreadnaught
Pennsylvania declared today that publi
cation of the "leak" probably would
hamper their work nnd might prevent
solution of the problem. The Department
of Justice has several likely clues which
may lead to arrests. Nothing so far has
developed, it Is said, to directly connect
any foreign nation with tho suspects.
The fact that the ordnance and steam
engineering bureaus of the Navy depart
ment for many months have beccn miss
ing plans and documents relating to
American vessels and their armament
has created alarm among officials and
will undoubtedly cause tho military au
thorities to surround the war secrets of
the United States with greater safe
guards.
None of the missing papers, officials
reltorated today, was Important or con
talned secrets of advantage to foreign
nations. Some officials were Inclined to
believe that the losses probably were the
result of carelessness of clerks, but the
Investigating forces of the government
continued to endeavor to unravel the
mystery.
Further Investigation nt tho Navy de
partment today revealed that the second
set of plans of the new dreadnaught
Pennsylvania to be stolen from tho
bureau of steam engineering were taken
between the evening of Saturday, March
22, and the following Monday. The plans
were duplicates of, those stolen March 4.
Secretary Daniels today reiterated that
thoy would be of no particular value to
any one seeking naval Information not
generally made public and that they con
talned no military secrets.

seizure of his vessel on the great makes
two weeks before the outbreak of the
war of 1812. not only Impoverished the
United States district court of New
York, of which he was clerk, but also
started a controversy that has existed,
since. The case now, has come up before
the International tribunal for the settle
ment of pecuniary olalms, which Is in
session here.
Henry James Bethtine of Canada is tho
claimant. He Is the heir- of the ship
owner and has pressed his olalm under
many administrations and before many
congresses. Its legality never was seri
ously questioned, but for some reason
or other the legislation necessary to meet
it always has failed. The $5,000, minus
$183, plus 6 per cent compound Interest
since 1812, more than a century, reached
a handsome amount.
"JuBt how much Is It?" a British mem
ber of the tribunal was "asked today.
"My word," said he, looking up a bit
of scrap paper, on which ha Jotted a lot
of figures, "but It makes a bully good
lot."

C, Rucker, assistant surgeon general of
the publto health service. He declared to.
day that tots and examinations of cur

In printing the bills, which, he said, hud
proved to be ah almost perfect germicide.
