Washington, April 21' There is a
llkrllliood thai the present niitl-.lnpaucie
agitation in California will result In the
abrogation of the commercial treaty be
tween this (.iovernttieiit and Japan and
the drafting of a new convention be
tween the two count! les.
fter Secret.ir llryan's proposal to
the I'allfornlans that they suspend the.
passage of tin- anti-Japanese net until
the President ha had uu opportunity to
negotiate a new treaty with the Tar
3astern Tower In place of that executed
n 1911 It wan learned to-day that such
a course already had been seriously con
sidered by tlie Administration.
The existing treaty with Japan Is far
from satisfactory. It was drawn to
meet a temporary situation arising out
of tlie agitation on the Pacific coast
over the Japanese school nuestlon. The
working of the treaty has been un
satisfactory to Japan as well as to the
t'nlled States. There is no provision
mi It for the acquirement and holding of
land by either Americans or Japanese,
and thero are many other omission
which do not tippear in the commercial
Mealies with other nations,
Secretnry Hryan's suggestion in re
g.ird to a new treaty was picked out
by Washington officials ns the most
Interesting development in his negotia
tions with the California Legislature.
It Is believed that the iiucstton of the
possibility of framing a new treaty
i-ntisfactory alike to the (.'aliforntan
and the Japanese within a rcasonablo
lime was considered tit to-day's Cabinet
meeting Tills phase of the situation
ncroiints also for another visit which
tscount t'hind.i, the Japanese Ambas
sador, made to the State Department to

The impreslon here, however, is that
the negotiation of a new treaty In place
ot the prrsont one is the utmost con
tession that the Wilson Administration
is willing to make to the Callfornlans.
Washington to a largo extent was
Ignorant of what the Iresldent and
ois advisers diil to-day. although the
allfornia Japanese situation was prac
'ically the only business accorded any
innsidorable discussion at either the
White House or the State Department.
The sudden ban upon discussion of the
.-.'nation was interpreted as an indica
tion of the serious view the President
takes of the matter
The. Japanese. Ambassador, Viscount
Chlnd.i. called on acting Secretary of
State .Moore this afternoon and was
chown tho latest tepoits fiom Mr.
Hryan at Sacramento.

The lYosldent was In constant com
munication with S-ctetary Hryan
throughout the day. It was learned
that Mr Iiran has limited himself to

The movement for the abrogation of
the treaty of P.'ll with Japan was be
gun by Senator Works of California, a
Progressive, who issued a statement
urging the termination of the treaty if
it interferes with what he maintains Is
California's right to legislate against
the Japanese in his State.
The treaty with Japan may be ter
minated within six months after notlrat
l serxed by either party. It has been
.oiggested that ('allfornia might pass
her alien land law, to take effect after
six months, provided the l-Yderal Gov

Somewhere In thee paits and pie
sutnably not many miles away are a
man and his wife and two small children
nnd $70,000 worth of unfet diamonds. It
Is believed by diamond merchants who
gave the diamonds to the man on memo
randa thut the head of that family has
these diamonds very close to hla person.
The short announcement In tho
papers of April S to the effect that a
petition In bunlcrupcty had been tiled
against, David liloch, diamond merchant,
of Tl Nassau street, by his creditors
was of Interest to only the few who
knew what lay behind the petition.
David Hloch Is about .IS years old,
He came from Austria four years ago
and started a small dlnmond business,
He was known to those who hdd deal
ings with him ns tin honest, reliable
merchant The diamond merchant of
this city hnve long had tho custom of
giving unset stones to a man of estab
lished probity on the hitter's memo
randa. Most of llloch's business was
done In this nny. but the commissions
on the sales nlw.is came back all right
from liloth's little office at 71 Nassau
street nnd the owner of the place was
upparently prospering, lie built a house
at 743 Driggs avenue, nrooktyn.
On tho night of April 3 he t-ent away
his wife and the children, two girls, one
11 and the other 1H years, and the next
day ho followed them. Tin left costly
furniture In the house, but took nil his
wearing apparel, He told his friends
beforo ho went, according to those who
havo looked Into his movements since,
that he won going to Chicago for a wed
ding nnd might be gone two weeks.
Acquaintances on Narniau Mreet In
quired casually where Uloch was and
wero told thut ho had gone to Newark
or Phllndelnhla or Chicago. No one
seemed to bn sure. Hut by and by the !
merchants who had given the dia
monds on memorandum and tho few
who had handed them to Bloch on
credit became tinea.sy. They knocked
on Mr. Itloch'H door, and when they
received atlll vaguer anawc.ni as to the
diamond man's whereabout they got
together and filed the petition. Samuel
Hlumberg wan made receiver. Samuel

quest of Oov. Sulzer to topeal the Frnw.
Icy laws which he signed last Krlduv
papeed the Senate to-day In spite of the
opposition of Senator Kruwle.
The laws grant an exemption front
taxation to Slate bond which have
been Issued of ate to be Issued, the
Idea being to create a demand for four
per cent. State bonds which the Ktntti
Comptroller's office Is about to Issue.
LuwHon Purdy, president of the N'ew
York City Tax Commission, told Gov.
Sulzer yesterday that the effect of the
bills would be to make the State Iomm
J2f.,000,000 on Its bonds In the next fifty
years. Acting on this Information Uov.
Sulzer had the repeal bills Intioditced.
Senator Fruwley declared to-dav that
thn bills were all right and had not been
Introduced and passed under it misap
prehension, He said Mr. Purdy did not
want the State to secure any advantuge j
In selling its bonds, although he wu
responsible for the passage of the se-
cured debt tax law which makes Bitch
exemptions from taxation that the Stat",
will lose 41s,uuo.ouo in nny years.
.Senator Krawlcy wan tho only one '
to vote against the bills. An effort 1
to he made this week to repeal the se
cured debt tux law, which nets only
$1,000,000 annually. It was said to-night.

"The bills were, made to apply to all

provides that on payment to the stato

corporation outside of tho State shall
during Its life be exempted from taxa

the law went Into effect, on September

I'liiiininu' to Ask Commerce
Commission for Inere.i-e All
Over the Coiintrv.
The fifty-two railroads of the Hast,
comprising practically nil the rntlro.ul
system of till territory, are planning
to prc-ent to the Interstate Coniineic.;
Commission something thl year, and
possltilj during the summer 11 new
schedule of freight rate which call
for nn average incrrase of ut least f,
per cent. In all classes of freight. The
busls of application for the advance, it
1 bellovtl!, will bv on tin' rates between
New York and Chicago, which will mean
a readjustment upward of rate
throughout the country.
I'.ulltojil presidents said esierdav
that the matter was under discussion
mid that probably a majority of the
great roads of the Knst were agreid
that nn advance In rates should be
asked for before the commission.
President Daniel Wlllard of the Balti
moie and Ohio, who with President
Samuel Ufa of the Pennsylvania has
been mentioned as taking the lead In
the matter, said yesterday that neither
he nor President Ilea had been ap
pointed und that the railroads have
luken no action In the matter
"Speaking for the Baltimore and
Ohio and myself,'' said Mr. Wlllard
when asked. as to his own views on th
necessity nt hlghter freight rates for
tho railroads, "I will say thut 1 am In
favor ot 11 Ti per cent, advance In the
1 ales nnd m going beforo the commis
sion to obtain them."
The great Increase In expenses that
have been brought upon the railroads
particularly since the arrdtratlon award
Increasing the wages of the engln'-r
und firemen, have made it certain that
In a very short time demand would be
made by the roads upon the Interstate
Commerce Cominls-lon to be allowed to
advance rates, Tlie award of the Van-'
hlso commission board that granted an 1
Increase In the wuges of engineers lust .
November brought nn additional charge
of 13,000,000 upon the Knstern roads.
The award to the firemen on arbitration
of their demand will cost the roads he.
tween $3,000,000 and $4,00u.000. The
trainmen also have formulated demands
Tln high price paid for financing the ,
road I forcing them to almost hand '
to mouth policy in taking care of their 1
financial lequlrements. The roads are j
going Into the market with securities 1
only for their essential needs, and this
necessitates selling short term obllga- 1
Hons at high Interest rates. ,
It Is believed tho roads will be more j
successful at this time than In 1910.
when their demand for a 10 per cent 1
Increan' In rates was refused. Since
the Van llle award the earning of
the roods have proved that while gross
revenue has been Incieased op
erating expenses have nlso beiutnc
much gi eater, so that net earning
have improved In much les degree
than the gross. Though grot.s earn-
Ings have Improved approximately C'i
per cent. In February, net increased
only 3 per cent. j
Others losses weie sustained hy the
roads recently from ihe floods In Ohio i
The Baltimore nnd Ohio lost J3.000.000
The losses nf the Pennsylvania were I
more than $3,600,000. These losses have
o ho charged to operating expenses
nnd are a tax upon stockholders.
