ply of the United States to Japan s
protest against the California antl
allen land law and It was announced
that an answer to the Japanese note
probabl would be delivered very
soon Secretary Bryan presented a
draft of the answer which Is believed
to have been substantially approved
It may be made public after delivery
to the Japanes. ambassador, though
that was not definitely determined to
day. It is probable that steps soon will
be taken to publish the text of the
Japanese protest, though It may be
deferred until the answer of the Uni
ted States has been delivered
Although frequent inquiries from
the Japanese ambassador Indicate a
disposition to press the negotiations,
probably in recognition of the state
of public mind in Japan, diplomatic
; ctlce warrants an allowance of at
least several days for the delivery' of
the state department s answer.

President llson 's announcement
thai there are to be no movements
