Calls at State Department Commissioners
From Japan to Study Alien Conditions in

liam -l Bryan expects to remain is Sacramento as the active oppon
ent of alien land legislation is the question with which th majority
leader in the California legislature are wrestling today in an effort
to decide what course to pursue in carrying out their plans tor the
enactment of the particular kind t laniMioIding Law that thej have
in Blind.
Secretary Bryan Is opposed to their
plan, but ihaf his arpuments against
it camp to naiiRhi In the secret con
ference with Governor Johnson and
the legislators yesterday la now ap
parent lit- announced thai be had
said all be came to say but, in the
language of a leading Progressive I
senator "he Is still here and the
belief Is current that he will remain j
until the bill Is pa- ed
The administration leaden are not
disposed to allow a filibuster. eenj
one conducted b the secretary of
state of the United States to check
them, and unless Mr Bryan presents
urgent reasons for further delay in i
the conference that he is expected
to call late this afternoon the opinion
Is expressed today that it is probable
the legislature will take bold of the j
situation Immediately and pass the
bill prohibiting ownership hy foreign
ers "ineligible to citizenship." while
the dipt Inguished '-isitor looks on.
Adjournment has been set for Ma
3. but it Is planned to extend this 1
date to May 10. Even ibis extension
allows Icfs than two weeks for the
legislature to wind tip its affairs, and
the majoritv leaders feci there is no
need to waste time wiih the alien
land bills, when other matters of
vital importance to the state are still
on the file.
Although several messages in se
cret code were received bv Secretarj
or State Bryan this morning from
President Wilson, Mr Bryan declined
to discuss the contents of his tele
grams There possible bearing on
the situation In Sat ramento la the
mjbject of wide speculation among the
S legislators.
Doth houses of the legislature turn

there hud been no Interruption.
President and Cabinet Meet
- Washington. April 89. Secretary
Bryan's proposition to the Callfornl-
ht ans to suspend the passage and appli
cation of anti-Japanese legislation un
til the president has had an opportun
ity to negotiate a new treat v uith Ja
pan to replace the convention of Hit
is believed to represent the ultimate
concession which the administration
is willing to make In deference tu pub
I i feeling in California
1 he secretary's statement that in
event of passage of legislation In do-
fiance of the president's ali- be
would feel obliged to do everyl
possible to "minimize the ill feeling
that may be aroused" is regarded here
i as marking a purpose on the part
f of the government to become an In-
M tervener of the Japanese li lull
W which they may bring before the fed
H eral courts to nullify the action of the
H California legislature. Assumlnu that
W one of the questions which Mr Bryan
r has transmitted to the president on
behali ol the California legislature Is
as to the probable time for negotiat
ing a new treaty with Japan and just
how such a convention could he fram
ed to meet the views of California
without being objectionable to Japan.
It may be Bid that such a method of
settling the present issue alread has
been f-'iven some I onsldorntioo.
Th existing Japanese treaty was
intended to meet a temporary need in
quieting the unrest on the Pacific
coast ofv the school question. Nel
i her party has been satisfied with its
workings, and it Is remarkable for Its
omissions compared with other trea
ties of trade and commerce.
For Instance, probably no provision
for the acquirement and holding of
land br either Americans or Japan
ese. not even the citr.-mely limited
"favored nation" clause, covers the
usual common law rih' In such ma'
lers and. singular to sa there Is no
provision whatever against dlscrimlnu
Hon When Secretarj Bryan started j
M for California he was aware that thcr
was absolutely no treaty prohibition
against such action as the Califurni
nns now propose, and he must rely
on their patriotism and patience to :is
sist the national government In sol
ing the present difficulty by diplomat
ic means
Consider Rights of Aliens.
1 President Wilson and John Bass-ell
Moore, counsellor of the state depart
( ment. who ha devoted much attention
to the consideration and definition of
, the rights of aliens Allhln the United
I States, were in early consultation for
t more than an hour todav considering
the prospects of being able 10 frame
a new treaty satisfactory to the Call
fornlans and the Japanese within a
reasonable time Probablj a definite
answer to the question can be gi-n
only after the conferences have been
extended to include Viscount hind t,
the Japanese ambassador here
Senator Works of California toda
Bel OUt his views on the situation in
a prepared statement In which he up
held the rit;hi of his state to enai i
such laws as the one In quest ion a. id
approved the lew-point of th Califor
nia legislators generally
After President Wilson's conference
ih-re was no Information forthcoming
either as to the Bryan telegrams or
future moves, hut it was understood
lhat at tie- cablnei meeting later in j
the daj further consideration would'
be given to the Japanese question
When the cabinet assembled John
Bassett Moore, acting secretary of
state, was inlted b the president to
sit In the place of Mr Bryan It s S
rare occasion when on acting head ol
a department sits with the cabinet
and USUally he Is sent only for a brief
period while the business of his de
tainment Is considered Mr Moor
Btayod virtually throughout the cuin
net meeting which was taken as an
Indication that the Japanese question
took almost the entire time of the
president and his advisers Mi Moore
who is an authority on international
law, has given considerable study to
the Internationa phases of the all-?n
land Question In California.
Japanese Ambassador Calls
While the cabinet discussed the sit
uation In Mexico to some extent the
principal subject under consideration
B the attitude of the California leg
islature toward Mr Bryan's proposals
No messages were submitted by ih
president to be sent either to Mr
Bryan or the California authorities
and members of the cabinet also Bald
nu conclusions had been reached. Th
rlew was expressed however, that th
administration would not recede from
its position as described b Mr Br
an to the California legislature yes
In the event of a regulation after
' those suggestions, cabinet members
I felt tliat the Japanese government
would realize that the government at
W ashington had done every thin u
i its power to prevent discrimination
Ther.- were Intimations thai some
ol the members of the cabinet report
ed a growing Beniimeut about th
country for a more careful inquiry ,n
to the California viewpoint on the
Japanese question '1 his. It was said,
hov ever, would be in line w ith the
suggestion to California to postpone
legislation until a thorough Investign
Hun i oiild be had and an understan I
Ing arrived at with Japan through dip
lomatic channels.
Later Ambassador Chinda visited
the state department and had a long
and earnest conference with acting
Secretary Moore Both flatly refused
to discuss the situation

report that a special mission was be

The facts are that their visit has no
Official Character whatsoever, and Sac

their object being to revisit Japanese
