Failing to Dissuade Legislature
from Enacting Measure, Secre
tary Looks to People.

Expresses President's Objection to
Proposed Law.
Wilson Fenrs Question of Construc

Mutter In Lavrnalt, Sara v
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.
"The president has impressed on mo
at all times that I should emphasise the

Advocates of Votes for Women De

for City's Good.

Womnn'a Interest In Gov
ernment, Mild as well as militant suffragette
appeared beforo tho city charter com
ni (union last night, discussing every
phase of the equal suffrago movement ex
cept English methods. Men und women
In terse and pointed speeches asked tho
commission to put an equal franohlse
clause In the new charter. Three equal
suffrage societies and tho labor unions
were represented by the speakers.
Mrs. Ida I. Atkinson was program
manager for the suffragettes. Speakers
wero Miss Abba - Bowen'. Mrs. Draper
Smith, Mrs. Harriet Heller, Frederick T.
Rouse, Miss Anna L. Peturson, H. F.
Sarman and Mrs. Atkinson.
Miss Bowen, head of the department ot
languages of the Omaha High Bchool, de
clared that wherever woman has voted
alio has exercised ber privilege wisely;
that municipal suffrage for women pre
cedes a higher class of voting and .tiore
.votes, and that municipal government Is
strengthened and bettered where women
voto. ,
Mrs. Drapor Smith displayed a chart
with the city hall depicted as tho center
of municipal Interest and radiating from
It all departments of municipal govern
ment. Then she explained how women
are Interested In all departments bulding
Inspection, health, food Inspection, public
works, water supply, prices of all com
modities, Btrcet cleaning, medical inspec
tion In schools, smoko inspection.
"Women can't put washing on the line,"
she said, referring to the smoke nuisance,
"because the smoke ruins it. And the
smoke spoils the window curtains. Tnig
Is Just an examplo of how women uro
Interested In municipal affairs."
Mrs. Heller, superintendent of the
Child Saving Institute, said most men
have even their religion In the'r wives'
names and that all that wan necessary
was to give women a chance to express
their wisdom by means of the ballot.
Women Hotter Cltlsens.
Rev. Frederick T. House, pastor of the
First Congregational church, said giving
women tho ballot would decrease the In
fluence of the foreign clement, less than
one-third ot the Immigrants to this coun
try being women. Only about per cent
ot prisoners In Jails are women, he said,
and this, he continued. Is proof that
women are better citizens.
Rev. Mr. Roubo declared the Influence
bf the' "floating voto" would bo reduced
by giving the ballot to Women; that the
of a higher class "and the vlcldtnj element.
wnicn is always almost unanimously ar
rayed against woman suffrage." would
lose Its influence
"The problem ofj vice Is a Joint prob
lem," Rev. Mr. Rouse said. "It Is a
Joint sin and calls for a Joint solution."
Miss Peterson, head of the department
of English qf the high school, said the
question of equal suffrage was largely
a matter of conservation conservation
of the energies of women.
Thinks Help Needed.
"Wq concede woman's proper place Is
In the home," said Miss Peterson. "There
her place Is paramount, but the widen
ing horizon of modern life has made her
Interests manifold and her help In the
domestic side of city government Is
needed. Granted that women ought to
mind their own business and that's
what we want to do city government Is
a part of It."
Labor for Saffrnne. '
.H. F, Sarman of the Central Labor
union reported that tho labor unions had
endorsed woman suffrage almost unani
mously. The majority ot the members
ot labor organizations in his opinion
favor equal suffrage. .
Senator Reagan nnd C. L. Shamp of the
committee plied Sarman with questions.

tilTINCY. Ill,, May 3.-The Identity of
the sex ot Albert D. Cashier, civil war
veteran and an Inmate of the soldiers
and sailors' home here, was revealed
today by Colonel J, O. Anderson, super
intendent of the home, to be feminine.
, That the woman, whose real name
probably never will be lfnown, because
recently she ' beoarrie "'demented, served
three years in th union arm . during
the civil war, is shown by records. She
was muatored out of the service In J.8G3
and a few years later was placed on the
government pension roll.
Man Knew Secret, v
She entered the soldiers' home two
years ago, and at that time her sex was
known only to Colonel Anderson, but he
promised not to reveal her secret. This
promise has been fulfilled Inasmuch as
tho woman two weeks ago was adjudged
Insane and in a few (Jays will bo com
mitted to the state hospital. She wns
born In Ireland, December is, 1844, but
the place of her birth Is not known. It
Is thought by Colonel Anderson and offi
cials of the home board that she ran
away from home and came to the United
States dressed Jn boy's clothes, a stow
away on a British vessel. She enlisted
In company G, Ninety-fifth Illinois In
fantry. The regiment to which she be
longed was stationed In the south during
the last three years ot the war and she
wna actively engaged in several Impor
tant battles, among 'them the siege
against Hood's forces In Tennessee, In
which more than half of compuny G was
Hurt by Accident,
The revelation of the Identity of her
sex was made two years ago in Living
ston county, Illinois, where she was em
ployed as a chauffeur. One day the
chauffeur crawled under the car, which
started suddenly, and the wheels of the
car passed over, breaking her right leg.
When she was taken to a hospital It was
discovered that she was a woman.
