AU 1Jllorsal
Washington Dec 18 President
Roosevelt submitted to congress a
message In accordance with an cm
ctal request accompanied with tho
report of Secretary Metcalf concern
Ing the Japanese t oublo1 In San s
Francisco Tho message and report
In part are as follows
To tho Senate and House of neprc >
sentatlves s
1 Incloao herewith for your informs
atlon the final report made to mod
personally by Secretary Metcalf on
tho situation affecting the Japanesn
In San Francisco The report dcnl
With three matters of controversy
first the exclusion of tho Jnpanewo
tMldren from the San Francisco
schools second the boycotting of
II Japanese restaurants and third acts
of violence committed against tho
As to the first matter I call your
especial attention to tho very small
number of Japanese children who at
tend school to tho testimony as to 1
the brightness cleanliness and good
behavior of these Japanese children
in the schools and to the fact that
owing to their being scattered thru
out tho city the requirements for
them all to go to one special school
Is Impossible of fulfilment and means i
that they can not have school facili
ties 11 me point out further lint
there would be no objection whatever
to excluding from thto schoota any
Japanese on the score of age It da 1
obviously not desirable that young
men should go to school with chil
dren The only point Is the exclu
sion of the children themselves Tho
number of Japanese children attend
ing the public schools 4n San Fran
cisco was very email The govern i
ment has already directed that siltI
be brought to test tho constitutional
ill of the act In question but my
very earnest hope Is that such cult
will not be necessary and that as a
matter of comity the citizens of San
Francisco will refuse < o deprive these
young Japanese children of education
and will permit them to go to the
schools ji
The question as to the violence
against tho Japanese Is most admir
ably put by Secretary Metcalf and I
have nothing to add to his statement
I am entirely confident that as Sec
rotary Metcalf says the overwhelm
ing rontlment of the state of Colt
fornta Is for law and order and for
the protection of the Japanese In their
persons and property Both the
chief of police and the beting mayor
of San Francisco assured Secretary
Motcalf that everything possible
would be done to protect tho Japan
ese In the city I authorized and di
rected Secretary Metcast to state that
If there was failure to protect per
sons and property loon the entire
power of tho fedorali government
within the limits of tho Constitution
woutd be used promptly und vigorous
ly I to enforce the observance of our
treaty the supreme law of tho land
which treaty guaranteed to Japaneso
residents everywhere In tho Union
full and perfect protection for their
persona and property and to thJs cud
everything In my power would be
done and al the forces of the United
States both civil and military which
I could lawfully employ would be
employed I sal especial attention to t
