Baton Rouge.-Strong sentiment in
o favor of absolutely prohibiting the sale
of all game in the itate for a period
of five years developed in the Senate
Committee on Conservation, when 'Bn

e which one of the Buie conservation
e The period of sale permitted by the
" bill for game birds Was objected to by
Dominick O'Malley of the American
•r Fish and Game Company, as practical
" ly amounting to a prohibition, and
e furthermore as unreasonable in in.
cluding certain kinds of birds.
11 Senators Parkerson and Vincent im
e mediately announced themselves in fa
vor of the entire prohibition of the
sale of game, unless the compromise
was permpitted to stay. Mr. O'Malley
told the committee that entire prohibi
l tion for a limited period might be pre
1 ferable to the provision in the .bill;
Y The result of the disonlion was to ad
h here to the provision of the bill, which
' is a compromise between the anti-sale
D people and those desiring the market
open for game at all times.
All six of the Bule conservation bills
were reported favorably by the com'
'- mittee, only one chadne being made.

JAPAN'S NEW PLAN
RECIPROCITY IN LAND OWNER
ERSHIP 18 PLAN PROPOSED
BY JAPAN TO U. S.
NEW TREATY IS ABANDONED
Secretary Bryan Says Japanese Note
of June 10 Reopening Controversy
and the American Reply Will
Waslington.-The protest of Japan
against the California alien land law,
brought conspicuously before the pub
lic again by publication of correspond
ence between the Washington and To
kyo governments, Was discussed with
interest here in official and diplomatic
circles. Secretary Bryan said the Jap
anese note of June 10 last, which re
opened the subject, would be made
public with the American reply within
a few days.
It is known that Japan, abandoning
the idea of negotiating a new treaty
to guarantee the property rights of
its citizens, has asked for a reply to
its note of August 26 last, in which
the United States was pressed to stop
the "obnoxious discriminations" re*
suiting from the California legislation.
"There is but one remedy," this
note said, "and the , perial govern
ment is unable to escape the conclu
sion that the duty of applying that
remedy devolves solely on the gov
ernment of the United States."
One phase of the negotiations dis
closed in the correspondence which at
tracted particular interest was said to
suggest the possibility of an issue en
tirely new In the history of the United
States. In italics in connection with
the promise by the Japanese govern
ment to grand land .ownership to
Americans appeared the words "re

right of maintaining the condition of
reciprocity with respect to th¶ sepa

The archduke and his wife were vic

an automobile following, which car

wounding Count von Boos-Waldeck
and Col. Merisso.
On their return from the town hall,
the archduke and the duchess were
driving to the hospital, when Gavrbo
Prinaip darted at the car and fired a
volley at the occupants. His aim was
true, and the archduke and his wife
were mortally wounded. With them at
the time was the governor of the city,
