Washington; Feb. 2. No other
question is absorbing the concern of the
administration at this moment to the
same extent as are certain phases of the
anti-Japanese agitation in California.
The President has been in communlea
tion with many persons who should bo
thoroughly informed as to conditions on
the Pacific Coast. It Is admitted that a
systematic agitation has been in progress
on the Coast, but a significant feature
of its lack of strength was the fact that
the labor leaders had taken no promi
nent fart In it. It even has been stated
to the administration that the main
spring of the agitation was to be found
in fome of the great corporations that
hart fnund their' profitable business of
eoolle transportation threatened with de
struction by the success attending the
efforts of the administration to stop this
class of immigration.
Agitators Injure Own Cause.
For tin- fact .is that, in the opinion of
administration" officials, the negotiations
with Japan for a practically complete
closure of American ports to the entry
of Japanese laborers are jeopardized by
the excitement and utterances of certain
persons in California and by the mere
consideration of such resolutions as were
entertained yesterday by the Nevada
Legislature. Kven agreements already
reached, which are being carried out in
good faith by the Japanese government,
are regarded as endangered, in the sense
that the present agitation might very
naturally tend to abate the interest of
the Japanese officials in the execution
of their obligations.
It Is these, considerations that have
Influenced the President thali everything
possible should be done to prevent leg
islation by any state that would dis
criminate, against the Japanese as1 a
class distinct from other foreigners en
Alien Land Laws Innocent.
There is no objection whatever by the
administration to laws prohibiting all
aliens from holding land In America.
For this Is now, under the revised stat
utes, the law in the District of Colum
bia and the territories and in some of
the state?. Indeed, there is a similar
law In Japan, and the government of
that country consequently could not re
gard It as anti-Japanese legislation if
adopted in California. . The President
has entire confidence in the people of
the Pacific Coast and Is curtain they
will do right In this matter.
The administration Is much pleased
with the tone of the speech of Premier
Komura in the Japanese Diet today, so
far as it touches upon the relations be
tween America and Ja,pan.
AXTI-JAP BILLS UP TODAY
Supporter Claim Majority for AH
SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. ;. All of the
anti-Japanese bills introduced in the
California Legislature have been made
the special order of business in the As
sembly for tomorrow, and lively debates
may be anticipated.
The bill prohibiting aliens from own
ing land in the state has been amended

Fresno County, so as not to specify
"aliens who .may not become citizens."
which made it apply only to Japanese
and Chinese, and now Is general In its
provisions. This change was made at
the sugcestion of President Roosevelt
and in its present form is not likely to
meet with the disapproval of the Na
tional Administration, should it become
a law. That it Is intended to bar the
Japanese especially from becoming the
owners of realty Is frankly admitted by
Mr. Drew, and this will be fully brought
Oiit in debate.

Aapoleon's Famous Charger, Vizier,
Stuffed AVlth Straw, Is
Found In Museum.
PARIS, Feb. 1. A straw-stuffed
white horse, which has been found in
the cellar of the Louvre, turns out to
be Napoleon's famous charger Vizier,
presented to him by the Sultan of Tur
key. An examination of the records
shows that the horse died in 1826 on
the estate of De Chaulaere, the Em
peror's equerry. The latter was forced
to flee for a political crime and his ef
fects were sold.
Napoleon's horse, which had been
stuffed, was acquired by an English
man, D. W. Clarke, who presented it to
M. J. Graves, of Manchester, who in
turn donated it to the Manchester Nat
ural History society. At the dissolu
tion of . the society In 1868 the horse
was forwarded to Napoleon III and was
relegated to the cellars of the Louvre.
It was forgotten during the critical
period preceding the downfall of the

LAW'S WORDING SPECIFIC
Misunderstanding In Proportional
Representation Amendment When
Placed Before the Voters
for Their Sanction.
STATE CAPITOL, Salem, Feb. 2. (Spe
cial.) That the voters of Oregon were
misled regarding the contents of the pro
portional representation amendment and
that it will be absolutely necessary for
the present Legislature to enact either
a proportional representation law or a
Legislative appointment Iaw apportion
ing one member for each district, appears
from an examination of the amendment
adopted last June.
The deception consisted in this that
the authors of the proportional represen
tation amendment told the voters that
this amendment did not make the enact
ment of a law necessary but merely gave
the Legislature power to enact such a
measure and also that the amendment
left the Legislature free to adopt any
plan of proportional representation it
may deem best. It now appears that
the proportional representation amend
ment precludes the adoption of any plan
of proportional representation except that
under which each voter votes for only
one person under the title for each office.
The provision upon this subject came in
the middle of the section submitted for
adoption and its purport and effect were
not realized nor understood by the voters.
Not much attention was given to the
subject for the reason that it was re
peatedly asserted and generally under
stood that the amendment left the Leg
islature free to adopt any, plan of repre
sentation it might desire, or none at all.
Amendment Held Joker.
Following is th proportional represen
tation amendment with the joker clause
in heavy type:
Section 18. Tn all elections authorized hv
this constitution until otherwise provldec.
by law, the person or persons receiving the
highest number of votes shall be declared
elected, but provision may be made by law
for elections by equal proportlotml repre
sentation of all the voters for every office
which Is tilled by the election of two or
more persons whole official duties, rights
and powers are equal and concurrent.
Kvery qualified elector resident In his pre
cinct nnd registered as may be required by
law. may vote, for one person under the
title for each office. Provision may be
made hy law tf the voter's direct or Indi
rect expression of his first, second or ad
ditional choices among the candidates for
any office. For an office which is filled by
Cue election of one person it may be re
quired by law that the person elected shall
be the final choice of a majority of the
electors voting for candidates for that office.

River at Flood Level and Bridges In
REDDING, Cal., Feb. 2. The severest
storm of the season, so far as flood

The Sacramento River is within a foot

WASHINGTON. Feb. 2. (Special.) A
demand that John W. Gates be summoned
before the Senate committee which is in
vestigating the absorption of the Tennes
see Coal & Iron Company by the United
States Steel Corporation, will be made
by the Democratic members of the com
mittee. The Democrats believe that Mr.
Gates can reveal one of the most gigan

1907, which, according to their allega

millions of dollars.
According to the etory told today, J.
Pierpont Morgan in the purchase of the
Tennessee Company, wreaked summary
vengeance on Mr. Gates for the Louisville
& Nashville coup of 1902, which, it is
said, cost the Morgan interests $15,000,000.
Mr. Gates accomplished this coup while
Mr. Morgan was perfecting control of
the Atlantic Coast, Seaboard & South
ern Railroad, with a view to controlling
the railroad situation in the South. The
net result was that Mr. Morgan was
compelled to buy out Mr. Gates at his
own figures. This stock, when bought,
was turned over to the Atlantic Coast
Line Company of Connecticut, the hold

"It Is not the mode correct," says

her husband's lawyers. Several times s!i
broke down as she unfolded the story of
her married life. The objectionable at

brother, so irritated the witness that she
