WEATHER Fair Friday nn VOL V. NO. 68 NEVADA SENATE NOT LIKELY TO PASS JAP BILL (By Associated Press.) WASHINGTON, Feb., 4. Senator Nixon, today received replies from telegrams sent yesterday to the president of the senate and the . speaker of the house of the Nevada legislature. From- the tenon of the senate reply, Nixon feels confident" that the resolution iassed by the Ne vada house, urging the California legislature to pass the anti-Japanese legislation will not be passed by the senate. He believes it will be , smothered in the committee or that all of the matter likely to offend the Japanese government will be strick en out. , Senator Newlands as a result of an interview with the president, sent Governor Dickerson of Nevada, a let ter offering a suggestion of plan of action regarding the Japanese ques tion. Newlands states that the only way to prevent the influx of Japan ese 01; other orientals, is either by an international treaty or by a national Maw regulating, restricting and pre venting Immigration. "In my judgment," says the sena tor, "International negotiations and a treaty Is a very unsatisfactory method. It requires of nations wfth which we have treaty relations to prevent Its own people from going where they will, a restriction which we vould never in any treaty apply to our own people." "There is but one consistent po sition to assume,," the letter-con tinues, "and that is to regulate the whole question to domestic leglsla- i.iuu iu caiju wuuu;i lui a, I call iuuuil or a pretention of immigration as. it sib fit. The time has come when - jSe United States as a matter of self jJrotectioa and self preservation must declare by a statutory enactment that it will not tolerate any further race complications.

Then came miles of paddling in a canoe, then a four-mile drive in a springless mule wagon around a waterfall; then -more paddling and finally the last lap of the trip aboard a small steamer down the Esaqulbo river.
