telegram received by Speaker Stanton

with grave forebodings.
It was Intended by the President to
be a notification to the people of California
that If Its logtslaturo Insists upon
the enactment of drastic anti-Japanese
measures, a rapture of friendly
relations between this government and
Japan Is most likely.
The Impression Is becoming stronger
that the exchange of diplomatic notes
between Jnpan and the United States
recently referred to by foreign Minis- '
ter Komttra it)l the Japanoso Parliament
has prwoceedod further than has
been believed, and that when the
President Insists that .the California 1
measures 'twould be considered an nf^,.
front" by Japan In case of tholr en-1
actmont, ho spoke with a full knowledge
of the nature of the exchanges,
and tho results that would follow Cal(-,
Kara la's favorable action an the bills.

Plans for carrying on the work are |
inlflnod m a co-operative agreement
lr?'v/n up Uy the Forest Servloe and ^
ho owner of a band of angora goats

For the past two years the gorernnent
