*»• K»mi *an Wl IT«iH*4 rtmm IWrvtHk The California Anti-Jap Law The Inman alien land law, appearing as "No. 1 M on the state direct lojrisJa tion ballot to I* voted upon this November, is the storm center of the Califor- Ilia-Japanese excitement. It has been called one of the most important meas ures in recent years because of its bearing upon a new and tremendous racial problem, and because of the delicate international questions that it raises. It Will probably p:u-s. Because it is legally phrased and because its meaning is of vital importance to even,- American, a brief digest of it is herewith given. This bi|]. framed by State Senator J. M. Inman, Sacramento lawyer, is de ~ "'signed to plug up the 11)13 law to prevent alleged evasions. It goes considerably farther, however, the' main new step being the forbidding of land leasing. The 1913 law said that no alien "ineligible to citizen ship" can own California land. The treaty with Japan, passed during Roosevelt's administration, made Japanese ineligible to citizenship by leaving out the customary clause that privileges are accorded the same as "the most favored nation." Under the old law Japanese could lease agricultural land for a period of three years. Sections two and three of the Inman law leave out this leasing clausar Section two thus forbids individuals leasing land, and three forbids leasing by stock companies. They deal only with agricultural land, for the old law exempted consular, residential or certain other lands which may l>e owned or leased. Section four forbids the custom, said to be in vogue there, of foreign-l»om adults taking out land in the name of their children, who, born in the United States, are, of course, elig.f le citizens, and holding it for them as trustees or guar dians. It forbfds not only individuals but companies Incom ing guardians or trustees of alien minors in whose name land is vested. A Japanese child in whose name land is vested may have a trustee or guardian, bat, under section five.iie must be a public administrator or other competent person appointed by a superior judge. The judge may discharge the pointee whenever, in his opinion, the ward's interests are not being safeguarded or for any other reason. Every year any such or trustee of a Japanese land-owning child must nle with the secretary of state a report covering all expenditures, investments, leases, crop contracts, and disposal of crop* of his ward. Fine of $l,OOO or one year's imprisonment is the penalty for falsifi cation or failure toiile in this matter. Section six provides that in case a Japanese minor holding lands, or shares in lands, dies, the land or shares cannot be inherited by the parent. In such an event the heirs are not. however, dispossessed. The land is sold by the court and the proceeds turned over to the parents or heirs. Section seven provides that lands illegally acquired by Japanese escheat to the state. In case a Japanese individual or company has a mortgage upon land. eaccpUon is made and he can obtain his land to secure a debt, provided he does not hold the land thus acquired more than two years. This section also amends the old law by permitting dl*- trict attorney's, as well as the attorney general, to institute escheat proceedings against violators. Sections eight, nine and ten detail evidence that shall be prima fade presumption of intent to evade the law, and name a new crime. It is conspiracy to evade this act when two or more conspire, and the penalty is two years in prison or $5,000 fine, or both. The last three sections are formal, defining this law in relation to the old one which it amends. It is non-retroactive and does not affect the Japanese owned land held at present SUCH is .

In fairness to Hohe, It should be pointed out that there is no evidence that Thor actually did wh,it Is claimed for him. There Is even soma question as to what mountain It was that he cracked so wide open with his hammer. On tha other hand, every one of Rat* Ruth's mors than to homa runs is authenticated by thousand* of witnesses, who saw these miracles performed with their own eyes. Moreover, Rabe Ruth had no supernatural help, but perform#*) these wonders single-handed, so to speak, unlike Thor. who. being a god had certain occult advantage* when he threw hta hammer with such terrific, effect.
