CALIFORNIA AT LIST SATISFIED Japanese Labor, Skilled and Unskilled, Will Be Excluded from the Country, FINAL AGREEMENT IS MADE AT WHITE HOUSE DEMONSTRATION DRAWS BIG CROWD American Labor Will Be Barred from Japan White Schools Will Be Opened to Japanese Who Are Under Sixteen, By Associated Press. WASHINGTON, February 18. The Japanese children are to bo admitted to tho white schools of San Francisco un der cortnin restrictions.

The big auditorium was packed to the doors before the speaking began mil it is estimated that there were at least two thousand people in tho house, including many women. The principal ipeaker, ".Mother" Jones, received an jvation when she began hor address in the evening. At the afternoon meeting, when speeches of moro or less extreme ness were made in Spanish, Italian and Slavonian, "Mother" Jones was intro duced, and in a few words pertinent to the situation which caused tho demon stration, intimated that her evening address would contain moro"medicino" for the "ruling class" and its disciples. "Mother" Jones is a kind, motherly looking old lady, who looks as though she had just laid aside her knitting to ask how tho herb tea worked on the youngster who had the croup. That is, is. until she gets into actiou. Then she loses that motherly expression and be comes a spirit militant seeking veugc auen for worngs rcnl or fancied, which nave been henped upon the proletariat of tho country.

Tho agree ment means that tho" schools of San Francisco will bo conducted in tho same manner as before the board of education adopted the resolution of Inst Octobro providing for the segregation of tho Japanese, except that adult Jap anese children under 10 will bo ad mitted to classes with white children of their own ago. Shortly aftor midnight the following statoment. was given out at tho Whito lbusc: "A typewritten copy of Mayor Sihmitz's statement was submitted to President Jtoosovolt nnd Secretary Boot 'y tho Associated Press and tho state ment is entirely satisfactory to them." Schraitz' Statement Mayor Schmitz' statement of the agreement follows in part: "We find that the administration and congress are entirely alive to the situa tion in California and are anxious to meet the wishes of Ualifornians. "They arc also desirous of keeping an the best possible terms wjth Jnpan and are doing nothing to break tho ancient friendship between that coun try and the United States. It has been explnined to tho United States that the form of action taken by the ichool board in relation to tho school iiucstion was probably misunderstood and misconstrued as an attack upon the Inpanese and that this misunderstand ing and misconstruction has been and now is one of tho chief obstacles to achieving the purpose California really has in view, this purpose being to secure by honorable and amicable agreement with Japan the mutual exclusion from the two countries of laborers skilled and unskilled of each country. "This earnest desire of tho people of California, and wo may add in our bo lief the people of the entire Pacific const, to check tho coming of Japanese laborers and the more entire willing ness and desire that Japan should simi larly put a stop to the going of Amer ican laborers, skilled and unskilled, to Japan, springs from no motive other than to bring about the commercial and industrial conditions to a satisfactory understanding of the two friendly na tions. Violato Federal Eaw "Events have convinced us, however, that many and probably most of the Japanese laborers who come here are really brought to this country in viola tion of tho contract labor law, and that tho well being of our workers demands that the immigration of Japanese labor ers shall cease. "Wo arc satisfied from our numerous intorviows with the president thnt in tho event thnt tho amendment to the immigration bill shall provo ineffectual for tho purpose herein mentioned and intended, every effort will bo made by him not only to obtain n treaty with Japan authorizing legislation by both Jnpan and tho United States to exclude from each the immigration of all sub jects of tho other said nation, ivho nro laborors, skilled and unskilled, but in nny event will favor such form of legis lation as wiU in tho most speedy manner accomplish the results desired. Agrees with Administration "Tho national government has no purposo whatever to attempt to infringe upon tho rights of California as a sov ereign state and tho purposo of tho na tional government was merely to fiulfill its bounden duty to a friendly nation with which, it had a treaty, to nscortain as a matter of international comity and courtesy whether by tho truo construc tion of that treaty such rights aro properly accorded to tho subjects of Japan. "Wo aro fully in accord with the viow of tho administration to tho ef fect that the attainment of the exclu sion of all Japanese laborers should not be complicated with or endangered by tho oxorcise of vMio right of segregation by the school bot'rd authorized by Sec tion No. 1G02 of the political code of the state of California. No violation of Treaty "As a conditiou to the modification of the resolutiony'wo respectfully insist that the legal proceedings heretofore in stituted bo dismissed, and it is ex pressly understood that wo have not conceded and d not concede or intond to concede thatjour action was in viola tion of any r'tipulation in tho treaty between tho jnited States and Japan, but on tho contrary wo claim and as sort thnt if any stipulation in the treaty is in conflict with thq power and au thority given by this soction of tho political codo as far as the said treaty attempts to circumscribe or prevent tho board of education from regulating its own school affairs . an exorciso of police power, such visions in the treaty are nugatory au W-oid. "It is therefore proposed by the board of education qf San. Francisco to modify the order sogrcgatihg tho Jap anese public school children of San Francisco heretofore made." To Eegulate Immigration The Btato department since the pas sage today of the immigration bill is proparod to take up ngain tho negotia tions already in progress with the Jap anese government looking to tho regu lation of Japanese immigration. It is said the negotiations will result in an agreement between Japan and tho United States for withholding by the former of passports to Japanese of the lubonng classes seeking to enter the Uuited States. For several years past the Japanese government lias declined to issue any such passports, but tho intention is to make this matter a for mal agreement is possible. In the short time remaining of the present session of congress it is not possible, it is said, to frame- anything in the nature of a treaty which would require tho action of the senate. In fact, it is by no means certain that a formal convention is nec essary to iiisure the continuance of tho present Japanese jnilicy of refusing pnssjiorts to the United States to cool ies, so it may be decided to give this ugritv.ient another form than a treaty. To Bo Enforced at Once The department of commerce and la bor being in charge of immigration will lit once upon tho signature of tho im migration bill proceed to instruct the collectors at the various points of en try of the restrictions placed upon the admission of immigrants by tho new act. No mention is to b.o made of Jap anese laborers, but tho collectors will bo enjoined to enforce the passjiort pro vision in the new act, in which will meet the needs of the Pacific coast.

FE R AVERTED President Effects Conciliation Between Premier Clemen- ceau and Briand By Associated Press. PAKIS, February 18. Tho threat ened cnbinot crisis has apparently been avoided when the tension was almost at the breaking point, by tho reaching of an agreemont between Premier Clem enceau and Minister of Education Bri and. Boyond tho fact that tho ministry will present nn unbroken front to par liament nothing is known of-a comprom ise, though everything indicates that the minister of education has prevailed over his" chief.

The first development in tho proposed prison removal occurred today in the introduc tion of a bill in the house for the ap pointment of a committee of three to select a site for the prison nnd reform school. Tho bill passed the house under a suspension of the rules and was sent to the council, whero it reached its second reading without opposition. Then Boomer of Cochiso and Mcln- tyre of Yuma interposed objection to further rushing. They raised four of the eleven votes ugainst further sus pension of the rules and stopped the bill at that point. There was a fight over the reference of the bill. Its opponents wanted it sent to the county and county boun daries committee, but it went to the natural committee of territorial affairs. That committee contains, ns does the former committee, three unfriendly members, Roomor, Scott and Dicker man, and tho bill may bo held up for the full ten days allowed by the rules. but then it will bo passed. Tho Cheap Fare Bill There was an open echo of tho three cent fare bill. Arrangements had been made for tho reconsideration of the vote by which it had passed the house on Friday and it would have been ac complished but for tho absenco of Bail and Martin, who had voted against tho bill. Tho opponents counted noses and found that they had present only eleven of tho twenty-two members and the attempt was not made. They claimed also to have had an assurance from tho council that tho bill will reach its end there, though it is said that a four-cent measure might bo passed.

E YET IN THE TOILS None of the Four Indicted by the Grand Jury Saturday Have Been Arrested,. JURY RECOMMENDS NEW COUNTY HOSPITAL Says Present One Wholly Un fitted for Purposes Asks City Council to Build Foot--bridge Across the Pinal, Although four alleged leaders of the mob which tried to lynch William Bald win on the night of February 2 wero indicted for rioting by tho. grand jury last Saturday, no arrests have been made and the names of the men are being jealously guarded by the conrt officials and the sheriff's office. It was given out yesterday at the sheriff's of fice that there would be no arrests made until the latter part of tho week, when Sheriff Thompson will' return from Los Angeles, where he went Sunday morn ing. It is said unofficially that the saoj iff's trip to the coast has something to do with the indictments. In the final report of the grand jury, which was submitted to Judge Nave Saturday evening, that body made a strenuous recommendation for a new county hospital and also made a number of good recommendations to the city council. The report as regards the in vestigations of the grand jury follows: Wo have reported an indictment in ono case referred to us by tho last grand jury and have found no true bill in an other case referred to us by the last grand jury. We have made some investigation in to tho jail accommodations provided in tho new courthouse and hesitate to make any report of these investigations because of the fact that, while the jail in its present condition is utterly inade quate for the safe keeping of prisoners, wo are assured that such defects as are now apparent will be cured when the courthouse and jail is completed accord ing to the present intentions of the Board of Supervisors. The County Hospital We beg to make a report of the condition of the county hospital, as fol lows: The hospital is located at about the worst possible place in the town, for hospital purposes. Locomotives are passing and repassing at all hours of the day and night; the exhaust from the gasoline engines in tho near neighbor hood is enough to disturb the sick and prevent sleep and needful rest; street noises on two sides, the one side being very heavily traveled by teams loading freight, and unloading freight, into and from the cars; all these and other condi tions make it imperative that the coun ty seek some other location for hospital purposes. Wo find, after duo investiga tion, that some such recommendation has been repeatedly made in former re ports of grand juries, but we fail to find where at any time they have had the slightest attention from tho board of supervisors. They have apparently been read, filed and pigeonholed. We would not like to have this report meet a sim ilar fate, but would earnestly pray that the honorable board of supervisors con sider the matter and give it their ear nest attention. Wo would request that the district attorney be requested -.to file suit to quiet title to the ground, on ,which the present hospital is located, as 'wo under stand there is wmc question as to own- . ership. We would recommend that tho board of supervisors seleqt some suitable site for a hospital, where patients can have tho uecessary quiet, and away from the smells and noises of the town and traf fic, and take steps immediately to ac quire same, and erect thereon a suitable and modern building for hospital pur poses, large enough to accommodate tho needs of a city of 10,000 inhabitants.
