WASHINGTON, May. t.— t
' Just before leaving Washing
| ton for a two day trip through
j New Jersey today. President |
| Wilson sent what probably will
! he Hip last word on the project- |
ed California alien land owner I
1 ship bill. It was a message to '
I Governor Johnson suggest ng 1
1 that the Webb o»ll. which ts.i ‘
1 Progressive-Republican major- I
* ty plans to put through the i
GH'fornia legislature tomorrow ’
' woulo involve an appeal to the I
cei rts en the question of treaty t
I r f.hts and bring on what miqSt •
be Icng and delicate litigation.** 1
The governor replied imme- '
ri.Atelv that he "would be 9*- t
' trrmely grateful for any tug- j
I feftions that wsuld avoid the *
l objection you mention.**
! This came after the president 1
had left the Wh te House.
I At the state department ab- \
solute silence is maintained. It I
is made plain that there will be '
no announcements before the
return of Secretary B^yan. The *
Japanese embassy is equally f
ret.cent although it is gener- '
ally understood in official c»r- '
I cles that the Webb bill is re
aarded there as even more of
fensive than any of the previous
drafts cf proposed hfillltillV.
FACRAMKXTO. <*al.. Ma> 1—An
indication of th»* form flic l>emo
< ratic opposition will fake to the
Webb redraft of the anti-alien land
hill mhs given iu the senate today
when the measure came up for final
action.
It whs the original plan of the

at the request of the Democrats a ;
I ostponement of oi.e (lay was grant-'
•■<i at th<* lust minute. The matter f
'•as set as a special order for 11 •
o'clock to-morrow morning.
In return for the delay the admin-1
I tration leaders received a pledget
irom the minority that it would abide
by the results as shown in the final!
loll call tomorrow, and not demand
a reconsideration Thu- the I'ris
gressives fee! t ..it. although appar
ently they lost a day. In reality they
saved several by checking further ef
lorts to Impede their plans.
The brief debate today on thi mis
tion to postpone disclosed the fji t j
mat tin- I teniot rats have hearkened j
to the advice from Washington, as •
delivered by Secretary of State
llryan. and will make a formal stand*
in suppoit of the national adminisfra

introdueed a resolution setting forth

EFFORTS FAIL
TO AMEND THE
TARIFF BILL
REPUBLICANS SOUND WARN-1

But Democrats Go Serenely On
and Vote Down All the

WASHINGTON. May 1 —All efforts
of the opposition to disturb the '.Mar-1

today, despite the fact that Rrpuhlt
can orators sounded warnings of ruin
ed industries, enforced idleness and
empty cupboards to follow the enact

Still championing the bill as the
greatest that has ever been written
for the benefit of the people of the
country, the Democrats were deaf to

tatlve Broussard, appealed to Reptib-1
lican leader Mann for a share of time
in w hich to speak against the sugar!
