while local hi its Immediate effect, is
international In character
Each state occupies a dual posi

all that concerns the nation's rela

"The president, upon whom reBta
the constitutional duty of maintaining

Starr Jordan, president of Stanford
university, and a loader in the move
ment for international peace, has
come to Sacramento at the request
of Secretary' of State Bryan to con
fer with the visitor from Washing
ton on the pending alien land legis
lation Dr Jordan Is opposed to a
land law of any kind that would sin
gle out the people of any nailon and
particularly the Japanese, with whom
he believes the United States should
be on more friendly terms. Ho Is to
BDSSk In St. Louis later this week
at the National Peace congress and
will be able to remain In Sacramento
only two days
As an alternative to a rigid land
i law barring thoto Ineligible to citi
zenship, which, Dr Jorden declares,
would be unconstitutional, he eug
gestR that If California has a real
grievance it should provide for a
I commission to lay the matter before
the state d purtment i Washington
and have the controversy settled by
means of a new treaty.
"The Japanese government desires
onlv to avoid I disturbance." said
Dr Jordan tonight. "In that It Is
In much the tame position as our
government at Washington. This mat
ter could be settled to the satisfac
raetlon of both California and Japan
If left to the Htate department.
"Governor Johnson has Issued a
statement claiming California B right
to "nact an alien laud law barring
from owner-hip foreigners who can
not become citizens. Ho points to
the fact that other states hare pass
ed similar laws, but that does not
mean that their laws are constitu
tional. They are no couiinullonal. I
as California will find if a similar
law Is enacted here "
