CANDLESTICKS CHURCH FAILS TO RECOVER Rector Believes Altar Fix tures Were Taken for Reason Other Than Larceny HIGH CHURCH SENTIMENT IN THE CONGREGATION Special to THE EVENING JOURNAL NEW CASTLE. April 29.—Members of Immanuel Episcopal Church are considerably perturbed over the dis appearance from the altar of the pair of brass candlesticks on Sunday af ternoon. The desecration of the church altar is the thing which pains Rector Richey and the congregation. That the candles and candlesticks were re moved for another reason than that of larceny Is evident, because the silver plates on the credence table which were undisturbed arc worth ten times the value of the candle sticks. There has been a difference of opin ion among the congregation for some time over the use of candles on the altar. Some members favored having the candles while others were just as strongly opposed to their presence and use. Consequently there Is a ^ thr can dle«fleks and can $ removed by somebody o. h „ . oc , ivltie8 .

EAR TO BRYAN CALIFORNIA TURNS DEAF Senator Works Says State Will Pass Anti Alien Land Bill Despite Government SAYS NATION CANNOT ABRIDGE RIGHTS OF STATE : By The United Pres* WASHINGTON, April 29—Predict ing that legislation effectively bar ring the Japanese from owning land in California will soon be passed by that state and declaring that the national government may as well ac cept the fact. Senator Works, of California, reviewed the situation in a statement today. Every slate in the union," ho said, "has a right to provide by law who shall hold and open land within the state and to ex cept aliens from that right. The na tional government has no right to enact any law or to make any treaty that will deny or Impair that right on that part of the stale. The gover nor and legislature of California was strictly within their rights when they insist upon enacting an alien law whether It excludes citizen* of all or one country, or a number of foreign nations. "If the government has founded a treaty that Infringes upon this right, the State is not bound by It. On the other hand, the President i* within his rights in endeavoring to persuade tbe State to waive its rights and re sped a treaty made with a foreign nation. But neither our own govern ment nor a foreign nation has any right to coerce a State to prevent law fill legislation by It, and no self respecting State should submit to any such coercion or dictation from either source. "The people of this country anrtjA the Japanese government may just ns well understand once for nil IhaliS such subjects of that nation as are coming to California arc extremely objectionable to our people, and that thoir permanent ownership of land In the State will not long be allow ed. (f there is any treaty between the two countries that will prevent the State from enacting such effective alien land laws as is desired, then this country owes it to that State and to the whole country to abro gate the treaty. To enter into any treaty with a foreign nation that de nies, limits, or in any way abridges the rights of a Slate is a plain usur pation of power." Says Bill Will Pa»». SACRAMENTO. Cal..
