DEMOCRATS DEAF TO WILSON PLEA;
ASSEMBLY GETS PROPOSITION TODAY
SACRAMENTO, May; 3.—The administration alien holding bill, drawn
by Attorney General Webb, passed the senate at 12:45 o'clock this morning,
36 to 2, after nearly 10 hours of debate. The only negative votes were %r cast
by Senators Cartwright. democrat, and Wright, republican. ;»;V.;r; ' : ■
The principal provisions of the bill are as follows: --• 5■ j- ;. : ,>*
1. Aliens eligible to citizenship may acquire and hold land'to the same
extent as citizens. , • r ** , - *^>*
' 2. All other aliens are limited to the specific rights conferred upon them
by the existing treaties between the United '; States amd the nations ■of which
such aliens are citizens or subjects.
In the case of r the Japanese, the
bill prohibits ownership of farming
or agricultural-' lands, ' while permit
ting them to own residences and fac
tories, manufactories and shops. .
LEASES OF THREE YEARS „» .
3. Leases of . agricultural lands by
euch aliens are permitted for a period
of not : exceeding three years. " There
is , a", question as to whether renewals
would be lawful. .- _ ,
4. Aliens Ineligible to citizenship
can not inherit land. Upon the death
of an alien land holder ' hie property
shall be sold by the probate court and
the proceeds distributed to his heirs.
The state specifically reserves its
sovereign right to enact any and all
laws in future with respect to the ac
quisition of real property by aliens.,
6. Present holdings of ineligible
aliens are not affected except that they
cannot be bequeathed or &old to other
aliens classified among those not eligi
ble to citizenship.
ASSEMBLY VOTE DUE TODAY
A companion measure, ! identical In
phraseology.; probably will, pass the as
sembly this morning and will be signed
by Governor Johnson after "a- reason
able time" has elapsed in : which to hear
possible protests- from President Wil-
Eon, who has requested the respite. ■
The closing hours of the debate, after
a sluggish all day session, reached at
last Into the springs of feeling that un
derlie the movement to turn back from
California's shores the unwelcome alien;
from over seas.- >' ' . \>,
In the last analysis, partisanship was
lost, sight of. -..; -•■- '■■'•■
Bembcrats and progressives voted to
gether In response to what they took
to be the almost -unanimous demand of
the people of ' California. . Their ; only
difference in the end was over the ques
tion of whether the bill was drastic
enough. ' ■ ■ • ■_■ -\ .. .
The futility of Secretary Bryan's
mission was shown in . the vote of his
own party. Nine of the ten democrats
voted contrary to the advice which he
brought from President ; Wilson, while
not a: single progressive yielded to his
eloquence.
sixes swan SOXG
Senator Cartwright ■ made the swan
song of the ' minority. "If is. evident
from the several roll 'calls," he said,
"that the senators are not voting in
dependently, but in a spirit of parti
sanship.- The whole thing is a pro
gram, and .we can't stop it.
"But let me Fay that if I could put
myself in a frame of mind to rejoice
at the downfall of a great and vir
tuous political party and of a great
political figure in this state, it would
be mine to rejoice tonight."
MGHT SESSION HELD V
The senate this afternoon refused to
defer action on alien land legislation
at this session of the legislature, and
the Webb bill, amended today by Sena
tor Boynton .to permit three year leas
ing of land, came up for final discussion
tonight. ■ . ' :
Senator Curtln's resolution to defer
was urged by several 1 democratic sena
tors, by Wright, the lone Taft republi
can,: and -by. Jones of l Santa • Clara, who
ie Marshall < Black's successor, ; but - was
defeated 26 to 10. Kollcall was: For
deferring—Caminetti, \. Campbell, Cart
wright, Cohn, Curtin. ; Jones. : Owens,
Sanford, Shanahan and Wright. ,
Against deferring—Anderson, « Beban,

bridge, Thompson, Tyrrell.
LEASK CLAUSE IST ALL BILLS' ',"
Boynton's; amendment was * opposed
by several republicans. >■ Senator Finn
declared that it would virtually nullify
the original effect of the Webb bill. -
Boynton said the leasing clause was
contained in nearly every alien land
bill Introduced In either house with the
exception of the Webb bill. He stated
that he did not speak; for the majority
when he brought in his amendment and
offered to withdraw It if the democratic
minority > expected to make opposition.
Senator Caminett! said the minority
would assist in tacking ;on the amend
ment and since the responsibility rested
on the ; majority :it J- was . carried by 1. a
\ote of 25 to 13. ,
