Sau Francisco, Feb. 4.—With two

center Of one of the largest orchard
and vineyard districts of the state.
The other bills were introduced by
Grove L. Johnson, who hails from the
Sacramento valley, where the Japa
nese are regarded with considerable
hostility by people of all classes. This
feeling has n intensified by the
acquisition in late years by the Japa
nese oi large trails of orchard and
den land*. The criticisms of the
Eastern press on the anti-Japanese
feeling in (Us state have aroused a

this solution of the problem. The San
Francisco Chronicle complains that
the feeling against California in the
East is entirely based on "two main
motives, both sordid—one is to keep
solid with Japan and thereby promote
the sale of cotton goods and kerosene,
no matter at what cost to the unfortu
nate people of the Pacific coast, and
the other is to force congress to make
heavier appropriations for the army
and navy."
The Chronicle predicts the exclu
sion of Japanese by domestic Jaw as
the only logical solution of the prob
lem and it maintains that in this de
sire to keep the Pacific coast "a white
man's country" two-thirds of the peo
ple of the country are with California.
In the meantime Governor Gillett and
Speaker Walter Stanton of the as
sembly are sitting on the lid. Both of
(these officials say there will be no
anti-Japanese measures passed, but
the friends of the bills are equally
certain they will succeed in passing
them.
When the anti-alien land bill was
taken up in the assembly Mr. Drew
was recognized. "It is most impor
tant for California to do her part to
protect the Integrity of her soil as it
is for the national government to pre
serve our racial integrity," said Mr
I Drew. He denied that his bill was
the result of union labor or Asiatic-
Exclusion league agitation.

NIXON WIRES LEGISLATORS
Asks President of Senate and Speaker
of House to Held Up the Anti-Japa
nese Resolution Already Passed by
One Branch—Declares Object Ob
sired Will Be Injured by Any Rad
ical Action at This Time.
Washington, Feb. *. President
Roosevelt sent for Senators New
ids and Nixon of Nevada and Borah
Idaho and talked over the Japanese
situation with them. The president
h-td said that he would not take any
a. tion relative to the work of the
'oarer house of the Nevada legisla
sre in denouncing the Japanese, but
spite the fact that the two Nevada
nators would not talk it Is under
ood they took away with them it
quests to get into touch at once with
fhs members of the Nevada state sen
ate and stop further progress of the
resolution now before that body. The
fact that Senator Newlands is u Detn
•'1 rat and Senator Nixon -a Repub
i
an makes it possible to influence
state senate to the extent of hold
ii I up the resolution that has gone
t! rough the house. Senator Borah's

Nixon Appeals to Legislators,
After leaving the White House Sen
ator Nixon sent the following tele
gram to the president of the Nevada
senate and the speaker of the assem
bly:
"The Japanese question, like the
Chinese question, Is non partisan to
all Nevada's citizens. I take it that
the object of the resolution now be
fore the Nevada legislature is a seri
otis one and was introduced for the
purpose of securing beneficial results
Personally I have no desire to inject
my views, but after a conversation
with the preshl^nt I feel that it is my
duty as a representative of the people
of Nevada to suggest to the legisla
ture, through you gentlemen, that the
very object of the resolution may be
injured by radical action at this time."
The president assured the Nevada
senators that his only desire in the
Japanese matter was to promote the
general welfare and he urged the n«s
f-essity of avoiding all complications
possible

PROGRESS OF COOPER TRIAL
Court Declares Jurors and Not De
fendants Are on Trial.
Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 3.—Many
people are under the impression that
the trial now in progress here is that
of Colonel Duncan B. Cooper, Robin
J. Cooper and John D. Sharp, charged
with the killing of former United
States Senator Carmack. Judge Hart,
however, gravely insists that it is the
jurors who are on trial. Two have
been convicted and excused on
charges. The case against the third,
J. M. Whitworth, Is proceeding.
Judge Anderson of the defense rose
to a question of personal privilege as
soon as the court was declared In ses
sion.
"I object to a headline in a morning
paper which says that 'Defense at
tacks character of Juror Whitworth
and claims he perjured himself.' Now
this is false. We did not examine
Mr. Whitworth at all and if we had
he might have said that he had ex
pressed an opinion. The story itself
as written is correct, but the headline
Is misleading and we ask for redress.'"
The court made no coaaMMit on the
statement of counsel.

She assented to an examination,
thinking she would merely have to go

feats. When the sergeant told her
