FULTON BITE BILL
GUHDT PUSS NOW
Railroad Senators Stand in
Path of Measure and Re
fuse to Budge.
MAY YET BE DISCUSSED
Probabilities Xever Hare Pointed to
Its Being Allowed to Come to
Vote in Upper House of
OREGOXIAN NEWS BUREAU, -Washington.
Feb. 1ft The Fulton bill prohib
iting the advance of any interestate
freight rate without consent of the Inter
state Commerce Commission. 1b doomed
to tWeat, so far as the present session
of Congress Is concerned.
Not that this particular bill has been
singled out for slaughter, but that it will
fail to receive consideration along with
all other legislation affecting interstate
carriers. It may be brought up in the
Senate and discussed, and it might pos
sibly be passed by that body, but the
Housn committee on Interstate Commerce
has decided that it will report no gen
eral railroad legislation during the re
mainder of the session, and that decision
blocks the Fulton bill, with many others.
Ttnilroad Senators Control.
Asa matter of fact, it has never seemed
probable that the Senate would permit
this bill to come to a vote. The "railroad
Senators" still hold sway in that body,
and it was their decree that the Fulton
bill should be kilied. In the hope of
overcoming their objections. Senator Ful
tton puroposed several amendments In
tended to win the indorsement of inter
Etate carriers, but even those amend
ments will be unavailing, now that the
House committee has decided that no
railroad bills shall pass.
It seems to be the policy of the lead
ers to postpone further railroad legis
lation -until me Taft Administration cornea
In, when an effort will be made to frame
up a policy, and make such changes in
the existing law as seem necessary to the
new President always providing the Sen
lie can be forced to act,
Knapp Favors Bill.
That the Interstate Commerce t'ommls
lion is heartily in favor of the enact
ment of the Fulton hill, prohibiting the
advance in railroad rate, until such ad
vances have been passed upon and de
clared reasonable by the Commission, is
shown by a letter recently written the
Senator by Chairman Knapp, of the
Commission. Commissioner Knapp. while
not undertaking to vok-e the opinion of
the entire Commission, does not hesitate
to give voice to his personal views. In
his letter lie particularly Indorses the
"pooling" amendment which Senator Ful
ton recently proposed to his bill. In his
letter to Senator Fulton, Commissioner
The provision which gives the Commission
authority In Its discretion to prevent a pro
posed advance In rat from tnkinjr effect
until after the reasonableness of such ad
vance has been determined, appears to con
form substantially with the recommenda
tion of the Commission In that regard. As
I tnirwd In that recommendation I could not
consistently do otherwise than favor the
measure. The authority se-ms to be con
ferred In plain language and the details
relating to procedure and the lilw Impressed
ma as clear and adequate.
The further provision which la designed
to allow traffic agreements between ,?om-
?etlng earrtera Is a change in tne statute
aw which I have long advocated and
which I believe would operate to the ad
vantage of the public. I do not hesitate
to express my desire for the enactment of
such a measure.

and in a calm and dispassionate manner
pass upon them, keeping in mind not
only the interests of our state, but of the
Nation as well, and the duty we owe to
It In observing the treaties entered into
by it with a friendly power."
Ieeds Immediately made his motion to
postpone reconsideration, but Grove I
Johnson, of Sacramento, author of the
bill, spoke against postponement. He
suggested, however, that, if the matter
were delayed. It be submitted to the
judiciary committee and the Attorney
General for an opinion as to the con
stitutionality of the bill.
A. M. Drew, of Fresno, author of the
anti-alien land bill which was defeated
on Wednesday, said that there was no
doubt about the constitutionality" of the
bill, but the point was that there waa
no need for It. He said the various mu
nicipalities were having no trouble with
Japanese In schools. Less than 1 per
cent of them were of school age and
they did not object to attending what
ever schools they were assigned to. He
would vote for reconsideration because
he did not wish to stir up trouble for
the President and his Cabinet and thereby
interfere with treaty negotiations with
J. p. Transne discussed the Governor's
message In his speech favoring reconsid
eration and defeat of the bill. He
quoted those portions of the document
referring to Japan's claim that the meas
ure was In violation of her treaty rights
and urged that the Assembly admit that
it made a mistake yesterday when it
passed the bill.
Stanton's Eariest Appeal.
Speaker Stanton took the floor at noon.
He said: "Regardless of the merits of
the bill, I believe It should at least be
given reconsideration. We are treading
upon very dangerous ground and I have
Information which, aitnough my Hps are
sealed, leads me to make this appeal for
postponement. Let It go. over until Wed
nesday, at which time it Is probable the
Governor will be in a position to explain
more fully the reasons for the Federal
Government's request for delay."
Senator A. Caminettl Introduced the
Japanese school segregation bill in the
upper branch today. He said:
"Since the question of admitting Jap
anese children in our public schools is
again the subject of consideration, and it
is claimed that the state has no Jurisdic
tion thereof, owing to our treaty with
Japan, it becomes the duty of the Legis
lature to consider it for no other reason
than to asert the sovereignty of Califor
nia and the right to conduct and control
our public school system, rights which are
not and cannot, under our system of gov
ernment, be the subject of treaty stipu
lation with any foreign government. This
It appears to me. we should do, lest, by
acquiescence and silence, we stimulate
the movement now encroaching upon the
rights of the etates."

Nevada House Strikes at Japs Sen
ate Will Kill Action.
CARSON. Nev., Feb. 5. The Nevada
Assembly this afternoon passed the Grif
fen anti-alien land bill, which provides
that no Asiatics, including the Japanese,
shall own land or land mortgages in the
state. The measure passed without oppo
sition, but it Is believed that the Senate
will practically kill its purpose, so far
as it is aimed at the Japanese, by amend
ments. The Senate today unanimously tabled
the Iodge Assembly resolution, asking
for a war fleet in the Pacific and which
also referred to the Japanese as a menace
to America's "peace."
The Glffen anti-Japanese resolution
Is held In the committee of Judiciary
and. should that committee release the
resolution, it will meet the samef fate
as the warship measure.
This afternoon. Senator Newlands'
letter from Washington was read to
the Senate, which then adjourned until
The antl-allen bill Introduced by Mr.
Giffen provides that any nonresident
alien, person or corporation, except sub
jects of the Chinese and Japanese em

real property or any interest in lands,

State of Nevada as fully, freely and upon
the same terms and conditions as any
resident citizen, person or domestic corporation.
ROOSEVELT TRUSTS GILLETT
Confident He and Stanton AVHI
Fight Anti-Jap Bills.
WASHINGTON. Feb. 6. While Presi
dent Koosevelt is greatly displeased at
tho action yesterday of the California
Assembly in passing the Japanese school
segregation bill, he is apparently satisfied
that Governor Gillett and Spaaker Stan
ton take his view of the situation and
that they will press upon the Assembly
the importance of reconsidering its action
when the matter comes up next Wednes
day. There is reason to believe that the
Japanese question occupied much of the
cabinet meeting today.
Doubtless further telegrams have
passed between the Preslde.nt and the
Governor on the subject, but. If so, they
have not been made public at the White
House. In fact, today Secretary Loeb
said there was nothing to give out bear
ing on the Japanese question. At the
Japanese embassy no expression of any
kind on the school question on the Pa
cific Coast could be secured.
In official quarters, confidence ls ex
pressed that the cordial relations existing
between the United States and Japan
It was emphatically denied tonight by
Navy Department officers that it was
contemplated that a part of the battle
ship fleet might be returned to the Pa
cific soon after the arrival of the ves
sels at Hampton Roads, February 22.
Five Retired Admirals and Two ex
Secretaries to Devise New Na
val Regulations "Will Con

WASHINGTON, Feb. 6. Perfect effi
ciency in military action Is President
Roosevelt's idea of what the organization
of the Navy Department should provide
and which, in his opinion, it now lacks.
Under his call for that purpose, a Com
mission of eight men of wide experience
In naval matters met today to consider
the needs of the Navy. Tho Commission
consists of two former Secretaries of the
Navy, Paul itorton, of New York, and
Associate Justice William H. Moody, of
the Supreme Court of the United States;
Judge A. G. Dayton, of West Virginia,
formerly of the House naval affairs com
mittee, and five retired Admirals, S. . B.
Luce, A. T. Mahan, W. M. Folger, K. D.
Evans and W. a Cowles.
The President explicitly states that he
desires them to consider and report first
the fundamental principles of a system of
organization and execution that will pro
vider and maintain an immediate pre
paredness for the battle fleet for any
hostility in time of peace; and second,
to recommend specific changes necessary
in the present organization that will ac
complish this result. The Commission is
to consider strategic methods of the fleet
and the number, location and facilities
This Commission met at the invitation
of the President on January 15, and dis
cussed naval administrative reforms and
approved Secretary Newberry's plans of
administration, though not considering
that the present organization of the Navy
Department provifies that efficiency which
should at all times be maintained.
Justice Moody act.d as chairman and
Commander W. F. Fullam as secretary.
The conference lasted about three Jiours.
The deliberations were secret and nothing
was given out except the most general
statement that the meeting had been very
satisfactory, but that in all probability
a preliminary report would soon be filed
with the President. Rear-Admiral Evans
was not present.
To assist the commission in its delib
erations there were laid before the mem
bers today diagram sketches of the naval
organizations of Great Britain, Germany,
France and other nations, and carefully
prepared descriptions of the methods of
management and distribution of duties
followed by great Industrial firms of the

Continuing the message says:
"To provide that the clerks and other
employes shall be appointed after non
competitive examinations and yet to
provide that they shall be selected
without regard to political party affil
iation means merely that the appoint
ments shall be treated as the perqui
sites of the politicians of both parties;
instead of as the perquisites of the poli
ticians of one party. I don't believe in
the doctrine that to the victor belong

doctrine that the spoils shall be di

"Both of the last censuses, the 11th

Every man competent to speak with
authority because of his knowledge of
