JAPAN OPENS WAY
FOR FRIENDLY TALK
President Says, However, No
Solution Has Been Offered
by Either Side.
LAW POINTS TO COME UP
It Is Now Regarded, as Certain
Courts Will Be Required to Act.
No Proposal for Arbitration
Is Vet Made.
WASHINGTON, June 5. President
"Wilson had a brief conference today
with Ambassador Chinda, prior to
which he had gone over the Japanese
note with Secretary Bryan and had ex
pressed the opinion that the communi
cation opened the way for "Interesting
and friendly negotiations." He had ex
plained earlier' that he did not expect
to make any official reply to the Jap
anese Ambassador, but would discuss
the Toklo note orally.
The President let it be known there
was much matter for discussion In the
Japanese notes, but that none of the
documents thus far exchanged by the
two governments . had themselves sug
gested a solution of the land law dif
ficulty. Court Decision Xecesssry.
He Indicated that the negotiations
would proceed slowly and carefully,
with a view to obtaining a frank ex
pression of opinions by the two na
tions. Sooner or later. It was Indi
cated, the meaning of the Federal laws
on naturalization would have to be de
termined by the courts, though the Ini
tiative might have to be taken by Jap
anese residents, as the Government
could not Institute proceedings.
No recommendation for arbitrating
the difficulties has thus far been made.
It was learned authoritatively. but
White House officials today reiterated
their confident expectation of an ami
cable adjustment eventually.
Cabinet 10 (irt Rejoinder Today.
Japan's latest word In her protest
against the California anti-alien land
law will be presented to the Cabinet to
morrow. It Is more than probable that
the Cabinet will consider the rejoinder
only in a preliminary way.
The next step in the negotiations is
a reply to Japan's rejoinder. This Is
expected to take up the Tokio govern
ment's reiterated contention, that the
Webb law Is In contravention of the
treaty of 1911, derogatory to the equal
treatment which Japanese expect under
international law and therefore a radi
cal discrimination. The whole tone of

In the arguments the attorneys for

Britain Delay Will Not Be
for Extended Period.
"WASHINGTON, June 6. Renewals of
several treaties, all three of which have
expired within the last few days, were
favorably reported today by the for
eign relations committee and the Sen
ate' went into executive session to con
sider them. The treaties with Italy
and Spain were promptly ratified, but
when that with Great Britain was re
ported Senator Chamberlain objected
After some discussion It was agreed
that If one was to be held up even for
a short time, the other treaties should
not be ratified, and by unanimous con
sent the former uction was reconsid
ered and all went over.
Great Britain's protest against the
provision in the Panama Canal act
granting free tolls to American vessels
was submitted several months ago:
long before the expiration of the arbi
tration treaty. Consequently the Brit
ish contention is that whether the con-
vention is renewed or not, it can have
no bearing upon a proposal to arbl
trate this question. Senator Chamber
lain fears the renewal of the treaty
may affect the canal situation.
It was believed tonight that none of
the tnree treaties would be held up
long, though there may be some de
bate in executive session when they
are taken up again.
Senator Chamberlain is author of a
resolution, now in a pigeonhole of the
interoceanic canals committee, abro
gating the Hay-Pauncefote and Clay
ton-Bulwer treaties under which Great
Britain and the United States agreed
concerning the construction of the Pan
ama Canal. He was the only Senator
to voice an objection today but it Is
known that Senator Bacon holds a
view somewhat similar and Senator
Root, who drew up the arbitration
treaty when he was Secretary of State
has contended in debate that the toll
question was subject for arbitration
Senator O'Gorman, of the canal com
mittee, and other Senators, however
are known to hold that the tolls ques
tion Is one of vital interest and that it
was herefore Included In the specific ex
ceptions or the pact.
