The fact that they nre familiar withthe

the reasons why the MIkado vet ranadvisers

tI newspaper organs against our law prohibiting

Z What does the existing treaty snytouching
r touching the power of control over alienlaborers
laborers conceded to each signatoryA
J I A clause in Article I distinctly specifies

interpret this cRuse Her view of therights
rights accruing t her under it was setforth
forth as is pointed out in a Tokio letertteNC
to the Aew York Herald Imperial Ordinance

ties As alien laborers were alreadyauthorized

J it is evident that this construction ofthe
the treaty was tantamount to the assertion

the ret of Japan and to the delegationof
of the exercise of the power thus assertedto
I I J t local administrative officialsThe
f The Japanese Minister for HomoAffairs

Thepracticnl result of these regulationsis
I i that there are scarcely ntiy foreignlaborers
laborers in Japan outside of te foreignBettlemenUi

expert mechanics employed by nativemanufacturers

that owing to the great nnd growingpressure
I pressure of Japans population on thomeans

This barrier

Now how has the United States interpreted
preted the same treaty Our CSovernment
ment obviously was at liberty to putt
t the same construction on tho clause oft

tern As a mater of fact however ourFederal
Federal Government has never dele at
I I t the Governor of a State such powerof
I of excluding alien laborers as tho Japanese
I nee law has granted to the prefect ort
f 1 head of a provincial administrationOur
Our central Federal authority acting inita
a Its own name and not in that of a Stateofficial
1 official has simply exercised the rightof
forbidding the migration of foreignersfrom
from Island possessions t our mainland
land territories There i no doubt thatin
i in pursuance of our treaty rights womight
might have gone much further and havoexcluded

those Japanese laborers who for yearshave
