Muskogee, Okla., Feb. 5.—Slit?
leading business men of Muskogee
held a mass meeting to discuss the
seven indictments returned here by
the federal grand jury in the govern
ment's town lot investigation. The
meeting was presided over by Mayor
Martin. Impressions of confidence in
the high standing, integrity and honor
of the indicted men were made and a
committee of seven members was ap
pointed to correct what was termed
nn erroneous impression as to the
legality of land titles existing in Mus
kogee and Eastern Oklahoma.
More details became known regard
ing the indictments. The first indict
ment returned, that against Governor
Charles N. Haskell, Clarence W. Tur
ner and Walter R. Eaton, alleged
forty-seven overt acts in alleged con
spiracy to defraud the government.
The second indictment returned was
against William T. Hutchins and Clar

AS TRUSTEE FOR INDIANS
Government's Interest in Oklahoma
Land Cases.
St. I^ouis, Feb. 5—M. L. Mott, at
torney for the Creek Nation, asserted
here that the land fraud investigation
in Oklahoma was instituted as the
result of evidence which he gathered
in connection with civil suits for the
recovery of lands alleged to have
been fraudulently obtained from the
Indians whom he represents.
"The interest of the government in
the present prosecutions Is simply
that of a trustee," said Mr. Mott.
"The Creeks lost many acres by fraud
ulent transactions. Because the gov
ernment was trustee for the Indians
it was charged with the duty of re
covering these lands. But it was pre
vented from properly discharging its
duties as trustee by the frauds. Con
sequently the interest of the govern
ment in the criminal prosecutions is
still that of a trustee in addition to Its
usual police attitude.
"There is no truth in the report
circulated by Governor Haskell and
his friends that William R. Hearst
inspired the suits. I was the man
who inspired the prosecutions and
from the first I have been the most
active in forwarding them."

Sacramento, Cal., Feb. 8.—Grove L.
Johnson's bill prohibiting aliens from
being members of corporations, one
of the anti-Japanese bills to which
President Roosevelt objects, was re
fused passage in the assembly by a
vote of 54 to 15.
Johnson's two bills segregating the
Japanese were taken up together.
One provided for the insertion in the
existing law of the word "Japanese,"
compelling children of that race to
attend separate schools as "Mongoll
ins" and "Indians" are compelled to
io now.
The other was an act to confer
power upon municipalities to protect
the health, morals and peace of their
Inhabitants by restricting undesirable,
improper and unhealthy persons and
persons whose practices are danger
ous to public morals, health and
peace to certain prescribed limits.
John J. McManus and Charles A.
Nelson of San Francisco spoke in fa
vor of the segregation bills.
The first ballot on the residential
legregation bill resulted ayes 38, noes
32. As forty-one votes are necessary
to pass a measure the speaker issued
a call of the house. Several changes
were made in votes after the call was
Uspensed with and the final vote was
37 to 37, the bill being defeated. John
son of Sacramento changed to "no"
and moved to reconsider. The bill
compelling Japanese to attend sep
arate schools was passed, 46 to 28.
GALLERIES WERE PACKED
8cenes Attending Defeat of First Anti
Jap Measure.
Sacramento, Cal., Feb. 5.—With the
iefeat of the Drew bill in the assem
bly all hope of passing any of the anti
Japanese measures has been prac
tically abandoned. One of the re
markable features of the defeat of
the bill was the fact that it was ac
complished in the face of an audience
af 2,000 people, who wildly applauded
9very anti-Japanese sentiment. Both
sides made dramatic appeals to the
packed galleries and in one of these

is based on the plea that the bill
ivould be distinctly harmful to labor
driving capital away.
Governor Gillett was highly pleased
with the action of the assembly. It la
vpected he will now procced with
he measure which is designed to ob
in an exact census of the Japanese
In this state. Most of the opposition
the bill, according to the speeches
i its opponents, was based either on
^rounds extraneous to the Japanese
Hiestion or on the argument that its
issage would retard rather than

)AP CONFIDENCE UNSHAKEN
Qtlieve Roosevelt Voice* Sentiment of
Majority of Americans.
Tokio, Feb. 5.—A high official Of
the government says:
"Our confidence in the fairness and
justice of the real American peoplo
iv 111 remain unshaken through a
wronger test than the action of a few
men who do not really represent the
^•ntiment of the public. In Nevada,
alifornia and elsewhere we believe
that the true sentiment of the people
s voiced by President Roosevelt and
.he leading statesmen and business
i en. The real danger of such utter
ances as those contained in the Ne
ada resolution and similar ones,
jmade by persona who entirely inisun
ilecstand Japanese, lies in the effect
jfliey may have on the Ignorant peo
pie of both Japan and America. The
•Intelligence of both countries should
:j e»frcised to muzzle the ignorant
and vicious press and individuals."
Leading foreigners and diplomats In
Tokio deplore the present agitation In
America for the reason that they be
lieve that it may seriously hamper
American trade in Japan and possibly
throw difficulties in the way of the
signing of the new treaties between
t!i« two countries.
Resolution Will Fail to Pass.
Washington, Feb. 5.—Senator Nixon
if Nevada told the president that he
was confident the anti-Japanese reso
lution before the Nevada legislature
would not be passed. He said he had
received trustworthy information to
that effect. The president expressed
his satisfaction with the success of
his effort in the matter. The presi
dent likewise expressed satisfaction at
fhe action of the California^ legislature
tb defeating the Drew resolution.
QUESTIONED BY RECEIVER
n,J
of the Fidelity Funding company to
further his personal interests was
made by Patrick J. Kieran, former
president of the bankrupt concern, on
the witness stand at a hearing before
State Receiver Gilroy. Mr. Kleran,
under examination by the receiver,
was questioned with regard to his
personal relations with the Fidelity
Funding company. Asked if he ever
had bought any stocks or other se-
curlties for his personal account for'
which he used the funds of the Fidel
ity company Mr. Kieran replied:
"I used no funds of the Fidelity to
pay for any stock or interest whatever
in any trust company, bank, Insurance
company or any kind of concern, nor
did I ever borrow any money or se
curlties for such purposes from the
company. The shoe was on the other
foot I was continually lending the
company stock, money and credit to
further the company's interests."

STATE'S ATTORNEY ACTS
Scores of Small Strikes Said to Have

Disclosures Expected.
Chicago, Feb. 5.—State's Attorney
Wayinan has taken the first official
step In what Is expected to be a sen
sational investigation of charges that
a prominent local labor leader has
systematically extorted money from
building contractors by threatening or
calling strikeB. Although details were
withheld at Mr. Wayman's office It
became known that a contractor
spent over an hour in preparing an
affidavit presumably to be used in fu
ture prosecutions.
Scores of small strikes are said to
have been called during the last year
or two purely for the purpose of coerc
ing contractors into "seeing" the
"right people." The contractors are
said to have failed to bring the sys
tem to the attention of the authorities
for fear that they too would be held
guilty In having paid the "fixing"
money. The revolt Is alleged to have
come when the contractors for the
new $20,000,000 Chicago and North
western depot refused to treat with a
certain influential labor leader.
