sion of the names of both complainant
and defendant rendered them invalid,
or else in the issuance of nfw sub
poenas naming complainant and ac
cused. - Argument on the validity of the orig
inal subpoenas was to have been heard

promenade along the harbor front. The
small force of firemen was augmented
by detachments of soldiers and sailors
from the warships, and pumps and
lines of hose were brought ashore from
the vessels.

Anti-Jap Bills in Every Sense Most
Washington, Jan. 19. President
Room-volt's letter to Governor Gillette,
dated January IB, follows In part:
"My Hear Governor: I am greatly
concern' d over the anti-Japanese bill
which are apparently going through or
are on their way through the Califor
nia legislature. They are In every
sense most unfortunate. At Inst we
have in llrst-cluss working order the
arrangement which with such difficul
ty we icctcded in getting through
two years ug ).
Would Simply Produce Great Irrita
tiory "More Japanese are leaving the
country than are coming In, anil by
present Indications in a very few years
ihe number of Japanese hero will be
no greater than the number of Ameri
cans In Japan; that is, the movement
will be us normal In one case as in
the other, vhiih is Just what we de
sire. There is, therefore, no shadow
of excuse for an action which will sim
ply produce (rreat irritation and may
result in upsetting the present ngree
nicn and throwing open the whole sit
uation again.
Agitators to Blame if Trouble Comet
"These agitators have themselves tv
thank If trouble conies from wha thee
do, if there Is a fresh influx of Japan, t
ese hither. They hamper the national I
government In what it has now so ef
ficiently accomplished the agreement
by peaceful means, nnd through the
friendly initiation of the Japanese
government, to keep Japanese immi
grants out of the 1'nited States save
as Americans themselves visit Japan.
Is it not possible to get the legislature
to realize the great unwisdom from
the standpoint of the country at large
nnd above all from the standpoint of
California, of what is being done. .
