GOVERNOR JOHNSON
SIGNS LAND BILL
Three Elements Likely to Invoke
Referendum Act Becomes
Operative August 10.
Sacramento. California's alien land
bill was signed by Governor Johnson
against the protests of Japan and the
representations of President Wilson
and his personal envoy, Secretary Bry
an. The governor algned the bill and
X) days after the adjournment of tho
legislature, which will be August 10.
the act becomes operative.
Within California the act has en
countered triple hostility which may
delay Its actuality until November,
1913. In the first place, the demo
crats opposed state leglalatlon at thla
tlini". as a matter of party regularity.
The Aslntlc Exclusion League, on
organisation of which the president
la Olnf Tveltmoe, recently convicted
of complicity in the national dynamite
plot originating In Indianapolis, an
nounced that It would Invoke the ref
pp'tnliim purely because It opposes tho
bill ax faint-hearted.
Thirdly, the powerful Panama-Pacific
International Exposition com
pany, hacked by many chambers of
commerce, has pluced Itself on record
In opposition to the bill on the ground
1 1 ... i It la a vlolntlon of faith.
JAPAN STILL SHOWS FAITH
Likelihood of Estrangsment of Peo
ples, Howsvsr, Admittsd.
Toklo. Faith In the American peo
ple to see that justice Is done the
Japanese Is the dominating note In
Hie discussion of the California alien
land ownership legislation.
War talk la denounced aa ridiculous
and only calculated to embarrass the
two governments, which are laboring
for a peaceful aettlement by diploma
cy. It la conceded, however, that failure
on the part of the Americans to re
spond to the Japnnese appeal for a dl
continuance of the alleged discrimin
ation would I..' likely tn lead to some
estrangement of the peoples. The Jap
anese public generally la con Inced
thnt the land bill la a racial and not
an onoinu: meaHure und hence a
blow to national pride, and the people
feel that the world muat be taught
the necessity of equal treatment for
the whites and non-whites.
Ill More Draetlc Than California's.
Phoenix, Arts. An antt alien land
ownership hill tar more drustlc than
the bill recently passed by the Califor
nia legislature has been signed by Gov
ernor Hunt, following Ks passage by
both houses of the state legislature.
The new law makes It Impossible
for aliens of any color to hold land
unless they have declared their Inten
tion of becoming citizens. Non-cltliens
now holding lund will he compelled to
dispose of It within five years. Min
ing claims or property necessary to
the working of minus alone is exempted.
GOVERNMENT MUST PAY
Treatment of III, Waiting Allans Not
Steamship's Duty.
New York. A decision handed down
by Judge Mayer In the United States
district court will cost the United
Stales government about ll.OOu.uuu a
year from now on It holds that the
government must pay for medical aid
to aliens brought to this country and
toninl glUt tlieir urinal at Ellis Island
to I', suffering from some temporary
contagious dlw
The governii I sought to collect
from the Holland American Steamship
compuuy I-IG7 for such treatment, but
die court, in finding for the defend
ants, tie. I ared thai the immigration
laws make no provision for the steam
gfell compauy to pay for medical treat
ment for uillng aliens. Unless over
ruled by a higher court, the decision
will apply to all steamship lines.
Borah May Be President.
New York Harper's Weekly makes
the following editorial forecast:
'We predict that the next republican
oandtdate for piv.Mdeut of the United
States will be William E. Borah of
Idaho."
More than a year before Woodrow
Wilton's nomination Harper's made a
similar prediction, which fact is re
ferred to editorially by the New York
Sun.
