WASHINGTON, May 28 At the cab
inet meeting today Attorney General
Bonaparto laid before the President
and Secretary Root the report of Dis
trict Attorney Devlin of San Francisco
upon the alleged assault on Japanese
residents of that city. The report, Mr.
Bonaparto Bays, shows that the iirst
stories of the alleged assault were ex
aggerated and that the difficulty ap
peared to be a lack of ponce protection
on account of the strike.
Secretary Root today received the
following telegram from Governor Gll
lejt relative to the attack on Japanese
In San Francisco last Tuesday:
"SAN J? RANCISCO, May 28. Your
telegram of May 25th concerning as
sault made upon Japanese received.
Will call attention of Chief of Police
of San Francisco at once to your mes
sage and request him to use every ef
fort to protect their people. Thin
the assaults were due largely to un
certain conditions existing in San
Francisco by reason of the labor trou

The State Department has taken no
further action in the matter as yet,

A crowd of about 300 soon collected

started to hurl stones and bricks into
the building. They broke everything
in the house, and the Japanese lied
through the rear door.
The crowd then turned its attention
to the bathhouse opposite, but before
much damage was done the police ar
rived and dispersed the crowd,
in front of the building. One of the

SAN FRANCISCO, May 28. The
demolition of the "Horseshoe Restau
rant" at 1213 Folsom street last week
following a fight between several white
men, is the cause of diplomatic corres
pondence between the representatives
of the Japanese Government and the
State Department. The acting Jap
anese Consul, K. Matsubara, at this
port, and his secretary, D. S. Richard
son, formerly of the local postofflce,
complained that the restaurant and a
bathhouse opposite had been demol
ish by San Francisco hoodlums.
They claimed that it was clearly a case
of race prejudice.

WILL PROCEED TO WASHINGTON
TO FIGHT THE LAN A I APPEAL
MATTER QUESTION OF LAW.
Attorney General Peters is going to
get right after that Lanai appeal to the
United States Supreme Court. He
Stated tills morninc that he will tako
steps at once to go before the Wash
ington iriDunai anu move to nave tne
appeal dismissed. He has conferred
with Henry E. Cooper the attorney for
the Irwin and Charles Gay interests
in tho Lanal matter, and Cooner will
assist In the proceedings.
It is claimed in the writ of error se
cured yesterday from the Territorial
Supreme Court by L. L. McCandlesa,
that a Federal question is involved in
the matter. Poters takes the position
that there Is nothing of tho kind. As
cording to the writ the transfer of the
government's 47,600 acres of land on
Lanai for certain Oahu property, was
made under a law passed by the Ter
ritorial legislature, whereas the land
laws are controlled by the Congress
and can be changed only by Congress.
"The Organic Act provides," said
Attorney General Peters this morning
"that our land laws not in opposition
to tho provisions of the Organic Acs,
shall continue in force. Tho Organic
Act shall continue in force. Tho Or
ganic Act made no change in our sta
tutes affecting these exchanges of land,
nor has Congress made any change in
our laws on this subject. Therefore
there Is no Federal question whatever
involved In the matter. Furthermore
there cannot be any appeal taken to
Washington, for tho reason that 5,000
or more is not involved in the matter.
Tho transfer was of lands of a certain
value for lands ot equivalent value so
the appe.il can not be taken upon that
"I exn3jl to CO tn Wnnlilnnnu no
3oon as DosWble and there move for a
dismissal of the appeal."

TO BE DREDGED TO A DEPTH OF
25 FEET TO DOCK THE NEW
The public works department will
advertise tomorrow for bids to dredge
out harbor on the Walklkl side of the
new Bishop wharf. Tho idea is to have
this slip dredged to a depth of about
24 to 25 feet in order to accommodato
the new steamer Mauna Kea, of the
Inter-Island Company's fleet. It will
bo some m'ontlis before she is in com
mission here but, Superintendent Hol
lqway Intends to have the work done
promptly so as to be ready for the
docking of tho new vessel.
The Inter-Island Company has claim
ed that there was a big piece of coral
rock on that side of the new whart
and has insisted that It be removed be
fore they consent to accepting the
wharf for use of their steamers.
The Territory has a small dredger
but it Is dismantled so tho work will
be done by private parties.
