BRYAN'S ONLY HOPE AGAINST LAND BILL IS THE REFERENDUM Failing to Dissuade Legislature from Enacting Measure, Secre tary Looks to People. LEAVES FOR WASHINGTON Westerners Tell Nebraskan They Enjoyed Visit "So Much. SECRETARY RETURNS IN KIND Expresses President's Objection to Proposed Law. ASSEMBLY VOTES ON MEASURE Wilson Fenrs Question of Construc tion Will Do Raised Involving: Mutter In Lavrnalt, Sara v Commoner. 8ACRAMENTO, Cat., May 4. Defeated finally In his diplomatic effort to dis suade the California legislature from en acting an alien land law affecting the Japanese, Secretary of State Bryan de clared Saturday afternoon that he looked tb the people of the state to express a final Judgment through the referendum before the Ret shall go Into effect. Sir. Bryan's statement was made be fore an open Joint meeting of the senate and assembly, Immediately before his de parture' for Washington. The assembly, which was even then In the midst of Its debate on the land bill passed late Friday night by the Benate, paused for halt an hour to hear him and then took Up Its work of following the senate's lead The bill passed the assembly late last night. Governor Johnson lias promised to wait a reasonable time before sign in" it. Apparently the only contingency that can arise to prevent the carrying out of the bill's provisions within approxi mately ninety days is the threatened referendum petition, which would require S0.C50 signatures before the law could be temporarily nullified,' pending an elec tion. The matter 'could not be sub mltted to the people until the fall of 1914, a delay of nineteen months, in case the proposed referendum petition ' gains enough signers. Kxnonltlon Ilonrd Anninst Bill. Early in the session representatives of the board of directors of the Panama-Pacific exposition at San Francisco gave no tice to the legislature that the board would foster o movement to invoke the refer endum against any antl-alltn land bill that might be passed. Recently the ex pos'tlon company has beep Joined by sev eral comnrcjaand.-trarlebodies In, the larger 'cities, who fear Japan wljl levy reprisals upon' California, by abrogating li esont -business relationships. At the open Joint Session of the two hcuses, attended by the governor, Sec retary Bryan - gave renewed assur ances of the friendly interest and co-operative attitude ot the national ndm'nlstratlon toward the peculiar prob lems of California, ' transmitting ' the president's latest criticism ot the alien land act passed last night by the state fccnate and rehearsing again those ob jections already made public. In reply, Senator Gates, speaking for the state, said: "This legislature appreciates the honor that has been done to this state by the vlBlt of the secretary of state. On the part of the legislature 1 wish to express our profound appreciation and gratitude for the 'Interest taken by the national government- In a problem confronting the state of California and to arsure the president that even If we may differ wltn him we do 'It .with the profoundest re spect for his opinions and those of the secretary of state, and if we feel Impelled to depart from that advice wo do it wltn tcspect for that advice. Voice-. WUnon'N Protest. Secretary Bryan In his address, voiced the president's opinion that the words 'eligible to citizenship'- substituted in the California attorney general's redraft of tho alien land measure for the word "Ineligible to citizenship," are equally discriminatory and therefore equally ob jectionable to Japan. If a law must pass, he urged that it be limited In its operation to two years In order that meanwhile diplomacy might bo Improve the Viternatlonal situation that re-enactment by th next legisla ture would be Unnecessary. This suggestion, which had not referred the president, he said wae. made "for the consideration of those who have yet to aet upon the subject." Secretary Bryan said In part; "As I am departing this afternoon for AVashlntton, I deem it proper that I should say a final word to you. My coming at the president's request, on tho mission that brought me, was unusual and yet in the president's opinion .101 only right in principle, but wise in policy. It was In keeping with his own course In appearing In person to deliver a message to congress. I need not recount the ex periences through which we hav passed. The legislature, insofar as it has acted, has found it Inconsistent with Its view of Its responsibilities to follow the presi dent's advice in the wording of tha law which it regards as Its duty to enact. While I shall not attempt to form a Judgment as to the action of the assembly on this subject, I have so fully presented the president's views that I do not deem a, longer stay necessary. On the con trary I feel that I can be more useful at Washington when the president baa be fore him the bill as It reaches the gover nor it It shall finally pass the assembly. "I cannot, however, take my departure without giving expression to appreciation of tho spirit, in which, as a representa tive of the president, I have been re ceived and of the courtesies that have been shown me at all times. The amity that has characterized our intercourse Is in keeping, I think, with the course that should be pursued by those who, acting under a sense pt responsibility about matters In which they a,re Jointly con cerned, are unabje to agree upon the means to be employed for reaching tho emd in view.

Down In "Wall Street, la the very heart of tho country's great financial dis trict In New York, and within a stone's throw of the office of tho late J. Plerpont Morgan, is a bank that has been doing business for 113 years. It was orig inally established as an "ot fico of discount and deposit." In the years that followed It developed into an independ ent commercial bank. Today, although one ot tho best known banks In tho metropolis, It Is a regular dally newspaper advertiser, And a most successful one, for It candidly says that it Is eager to Increase Its num ber of active accounts ot merchants and manufac turers. This bank's advertisements are conaUo and dignified, wholly in keeping with the lotty character of the business. Thete are many banking Institutions throughout tho United States that could very profitably follow the advertising methods of this Now York bank. It Is really neither un ethical nor undignified for a banking house to tell its advertising story freely to an Interested public. Such a course puts it on a frlondly baala with tho public in general, and tends to pro mote vigorously its busiuess affairs.
