Court for Decision.
SAN FRANCISCO. Dec. 7. The Board
of Kducation through City Attorney
William G. Burke this afternoon sub
mitted to United States District At
torney Robert Devlin a statement of
the facts bearing on the segregation
of Japanese . children In separate
schools, which Is planned to make the
basis of the legal action that the Fed
eral Government is to take to test the
legality of the state statute under
which the Boaid of. Education made its
The statement of facts presented to
Mr. Devlin sets forth all the facts and
conditions leading up to the segrega
tion of the Japanese and is in the
nature of an ultimatum from the local
authorities, who declare their Intention
-of enforcing It. Mr. Devlin stated that
it would be necessary for him to per
sonally verify the facts as set forth
and said that on next Monday he would
be ready to state whether he could ac

Facts Sent to Moody.
The statement was immediately tele
, graphed to Washington, where it is
expected that It will be considered by
Attorney-General Moody.
The Japanese government, through
its local Consul, has collected a mass
of data in connection with the attend
ance of Japanese school children in the
.schools of this city, some of which is
at variance with the statistics of the
Board of Kducation. To avoid the
necessity of threshing out an enormous
mass of evidence from both sides In
the courts, the Government is endeav
oring to agree with the local authori
ties upon certain facts which will be
considered by all parties.
The complainant in the case is a Jap
anese of the age of 10 years, who has
been barred from the Redding primary
The United States District Attorney
stated his intention to submit the mat
ter to the State Supreme Court. He
would assign no reason for choosing
this course instead of a Federal court
other than an intimation that he pre
ferred to have the matter decided by
the judiciary of the state where it is
in dispute. He will apply for an order
setting aside the resolutions of the
Board of Kducation on the subject.
The proceedings will be based on the
following statement of facts:
Agreed Statement of Facts.
It la hereby agreed that the following:
farts are truo:
That the United States entered into an
agreement with the Empire of Japan which
vai concluded November 22, 1894, the rati
fication of whic'n was advised by the Senate
with amendments February 0, 1800, and
which was ratified by the President of the
1 nlted States February 15, 1803: that rati
fications were exchanged March 21, 1805, and
that the treaty was proclaimed March 21.
1SH5, which treaty Is now in full force and
effect. .
Section 1B62 of tne penal code of Califor
nia provides as follows:
"Trustees shall have the power to estab
lish schools for Indian citizens and for
children of Mongolian and Chinese descent.
When such separate schools are established,
Indian, Chinese or Mongolian children must
not be admitted into any other school except
In kindergartens at the age of 4."
On October 11. 100, the Board of Educa
tion of Sun Francisco adopted the follow
ing resolution:
'Resolved. That, in accordance with arti
cle one, section 1402, of the school law of
California, principals are hereby directed to
send all Chinese, Japanese and Corean chil
dren to the Oriental public school on and
after October 15. 1006."
Separate School of Equal Teaching.
Tiie document then states that a sep
arate school should be established for
Orientals which is conducted in all re
spects ns arc other public schools of
the same grade, that trustworthy and
competent teachers are in charge and
that the sumo educational privileges,
rights and advantages are offered the
Oriental children as are afforded the
children of all other public schools.
The statement sets forth that at the
time of the passage of this resolution
there were 93 Japanese children in at
tendance at the' several -public schools,
39 of whom were between the ages of
lfi and 21 years. The admission is
made that the children of all lother
foreign parentage other than Oriental
are not segregated in separate schools.
The statement then says:
The United States joins In this statement
of facts for the purpose of enforcing, so far
as It has power to do, its obligation to the
Empire' of Japan arising from said treaty
and of securing to the children of Japanese
descent the same educational advantages
as are given to children of English, German,
French, Italian and other European par
entage, and of preventing any discrlmtation
being exercised against the children of Jap
anese descent, subjects of the Empire of
Legal Question Involved.
The legal question presented for de
termination is:
"Whether said ordinance of the Board
of Education and the statute on which it
is based is or are within itself or within
themselves, or in Its use or their operation,
violative of the rights secured to the suo
Jects of the Empire of Japan by force and
virtue of the treaty hereinabove referred to;
and whether said defendant . has been de
prived of the same educational rights and
prlvilges as the children of English, Ger
man. French, Italian or of other European
parentage, citizens of these respective gov
ernments and residents in the City and
county of San Francisco, and whether said
resohitions and statute create any discrim
ination against Chinese, Japanese and Co
rean children or are violative laws of the
treaty above referred to.
2 Whether said treaty, insofar as It re
lates to the subject matter of this contro
versy, if it does so relate. Is valid.
Japanese Consul Says Countrymen
Welcome Roosevelt's Plan.
SAN FRANCISCO. Dec. 7. In an inter
view in the Call today, bearing on the
recommendations in his message by Presl.
dent Roosevelt on Japanese naturalization
and on the segregation of their children
in schools. General K. Uyeno. the Consul
for Japan here, says:
"Sentiment is practically universal
among the 10.000 Japanese in San Fran
cisco that the recommendations made by
the President contain the most -rational
solution of the Japanese-American prob
lem yet suggested. The Japanese are not
only pleased- over the message, but they
regard it as one of the most noteworthy
documents on interrrational questions that
has been issued from the White House.
The bonds between Japan -and the
United States would be considerably
strengthened by conferring the franchise
on the Japanese In California. There are
some 50,000 Japanese In the United States,
and -while I am not In a position to say
how,many of these would take advantage
of naturalization privileges, I do think the.
number would be comparatively large, es-
peclally in San Francisco. Many Japan
ese nave iammes ana property in inis
city, and they would naturally regard
San Francisco as their permanent home
once they believed that they had the
same privileges as other aliens.
"Concerning the school segregation
question, a lot is being written and talked
that is due to misconception of the facts.
I think the entire matter will be solved
satisfactorily. The Japanese are not striv
ing for anything unreasonable."
California's Suggestions to Keep
Peace With Japan.
CHICAGO, Dec. 7. A dispatch to the
Tribune from San Francisco says: Cali
fornia proposes a settlement of the im
broglio with Japan over the San Fran
Cisco sctiool question on the following
The Federal Government to enact a
new treaty with Japan, excluding Japan
ese coolie labor from the United States
and Hawaii and American labor from
Japanese contract labor importations to
Kquality in public schools, with sep
arate schools for adult Japanese desiring
primary and grammar school training.
A decision by the United States Supreme
Court on the states' right to pass anti-
miscegenation and school laws.
The Federal Government to decide the
right of franchise for the Japanese, Cali
fornia suggesting only Federal cognizance
of Japanese class distinctions in passing
the law.
Keep the question out of the hands of
California, although still frothing over
President Roosevelt's message to Con
gress, has begun to quiet down and study
the possible motives behind the utter
ances of the Chief Executive. That the
President really meant what he said is
considered absurd, and, while part of the
people still bitterly declare he was mis
led, others declare that the message is
part of a big diplomatic game, and that
the President slapped California merely
to gain a diplomatic advantage by con
ciliating Japan. Public men here, prob
ably advised from Washington, are tirm
in the conviction that President Roosevelt
and the Japanese Ambassador are fram
ing a new treaty which shall exclude the
Japanese coolie class from the United
States and American labor from Japan.
President and All Officials Deny It
Is Considered.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7. "There is ab
solutely nothing in it," said Senator Cul
lom, chairman of the Senate committee
on foreign relations on returning from a
visit to the State Department today when
asked what he knew about a proposed
new treaty with Japan. Secretary Root
and Viscount Aokl, the Japanese Ambas
sador, have flatly denied that such a
treaty was in contemplation, and a high
official of the State Department in a po
sition to know all that transpires in his
office, today reiterated the statement that
nothing of the kind has even been
thought of.
Assistant Secretary Adee, who has been
credited with having been assigned the
task of preparing such a treaty, said to
day: "It is all conjecture. I know abso
lutely nothing tending to confirm the re
port of any such treaty being negotiated."
Assistant Secretary of State Bacon to
day made a statement on behalf of the
President that no steps of any kind had
been taken or will be instituted with a
view to the negotiation of a new treaty
with Japan for the exclusion of Japanese
laborers. The President, Mr. Bacon said,
asked that this Information be made pub
Chamberlain's Suggestion on Mixing
Races in Schools.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 7. "The West la
unalterably opposed to joint occupancy of
public schoolrooms by Japanese or Chi
nese and our white children," said Gov
ernor Chamberlain today. "We are also
against admission of Chinese or Japanese
coolies. The present controversy over the
Japanese has assumed a phase which calls
for application of more - common sense
than has been manifested in some quar
ters. The Interpretation of treaties rests
solely with tho courts, and certainly not
with the executive branch of the Govern
ment, through the military, as President
Roosevelt threatens.
"It appears to me that the administra
tion is inconsistent in attempting to force,
association in the public schools of an in
ferior race with white children, when
here In the District of Columbia there is a
system of separate schools for whites and

Consul Miller Predicts Japanese Su
premacy on Pacific.
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7. Among
the passengers on the steamer Siberia,
which sailed for the Orient today, was
Consul-General K. B. Miller, who is re
turning to his post at Yokohama. He
visited Berkeley this morning and at
noon addressed 1200 students of the
State University on the relations be
tween Japan and the United States. In
part he said:
"Thoughts of war are the lightest
thoughts that Japan has today. The
test of the future between Japan and
the United States will not be a con
flict of armies and armament, but will
be a war for industrial supremacy.
Japan is now reaching out for world
commerce and I predict that, unless
this country makes rapid progress
along a line in which it is showing lit
tle disposition to progress, Japan will
soon be in absolute control of the mer
chant marine of the Pacific."
Piles Opposed to Agitation, Praising
Industry of Broun Men.
ington, Dec. 7. Senator RMes takes issue
with Governor Mead on the Japanese
question. In an interview today he said
there was no Japanese question in Wash
ington, or at least he had heard of none.
He spoke well of the industry of the
Japanese and said we need them as
"I fail t see what is to be gained by
agitating the Japanese question," said
he. "The growth of the West is de
pendent upon labor and anything that
tends to drive labor away from us neces
sarily spells ruin for the Pacific Coast."

The press fervidly eulogizes President
Roosevelt's message to Congress, tho
spirit and substance of which are praised

Half-Witted Youth Says He Is the
Slayer of Dora Oilman.
DAYTON, O., Dec. 7. "Yes. I. did it;
I am the murderer of Dora Oilman. "
Coolly and without the slightest sign
of emotion or remorse, David Curtis
early today made this confession to
the Prosecuting Attorney. .
The statement of Curtis is as fol
lows: "On the evening of, November 20 I
ate supper in the Cadillac restaurant,
on Fitth street. Just as I came out I
saw Dora Gilman waiting for her car,
and I also boarded the car. At Na
tional and Groveland avenues I alight
ed. Shortly after the car had started
up the hill, and as she took the west
side of the street, I followed - up the
hill on the east side. I then com
mitted the assault."
After the confession, Curtis wept bit
terly, but he declared he was glad to
have made the confession and relieve
his mind. Curtis earned a precarious
living selling papers. He is half wltted.
Dora Gilman, a 20-year-old girl, was
criminally assaulted and strangled to
death Tuesday evening, November 20,
within 50 yards of her home on Arlington
Heights, a suburb of this city, while re
turning home from work. Her body was
discovered by her young brother the fol
lowing Thursday morning lying in a va
cant lot nearly opposite the Gilman
home. The authorities for a while were
inclined to believe that some members of
the family were implicated in the mur
der, but this theory was abandoned.
Many suspects were arrested.

berman Shoots Doctor.
CHICAGO, Dec 7. Dr. Benjamin Har
ris, a retired physician, who came to this
city a year ago from Antigo, Wis., was
today shot and fatally wounded by A. C
Campbell, a lumber dealer of Antigo.
The shooting took place in the Stock Ex
change building and for a time created
much excitement. Campbell made no
effort to escape and was placed under ar
rest. The tragedy was the outcome of domes
tic troubles involving the families of both
men. The wife of Dr. Harris some time
ago secured a divorce alleging as ground
the attentions of her husband to Mrs.
Campbell. After the granting of the Har
ris divorce, Campbell commenced proceed
ings for a divorce from his wife and it
was in connection with that matter that
he visited Chicago today.
He was in the office of a local at
torney awaiting the appearance of Mrs.
Harris, who was to make a deposition
regarding the connection of Mrs. Camp
bell with the Harris divorce suit. Harris
also happened to visit the office of the
attorney this afternoon and suddenly
stepped into the room where Campbell
was sitting. The latter at once sprang
to his feet and drawing a revolver, fired
at Harris. ' The physician placed his
hand across his chest, and the bullet tore
through It and passed almost entirely
through Harris' body.
He turned and ran into the hall, fol
lowed by Campbell, who fired at him
repeatedly, four bullets taking effect.
Harris tried to summon the elevator In
order to leave the building, but fainted
from loss of blood and fell on the floor
across tho door of the elevator shaft.
Campbell, holding the revolver, calmly
walked back to the office and asked that
the police be sent for. They arrived
within a few moments and Campbell was
taken to the central police station. At
the hospital where Harris -was taken It
was said he could hot recover.

San Franciscans Are Receiving

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 7. The report

When He Leaves College.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Dec. 7. Theo

Miss Janis made her first appearance on
the stage two years ago when she at

mimicry. She was then 15 years old and
appeared in vaudeville.
Friends of Miss Janis and young Roose

married. They even say the story was
started as a practical joke on young
Roosevelt. There are Harvard students,
