TOKIO. Oct 1. It Is understood that
Japan and the United States are dis
cussing: the possibilities of arranging
a new commercial treaty.
WASHIXQTON, Oct 1. Surprise was
expressed today at the State Depart
ment at the report from Toklo that
ancther note bearing on the California
anti-alien land legislation had been
dispatched to Washington. The last
.Japanese note, presented more than s
fortnight ago, remains unanswered
and it has been assumed that the ne
gotiations would be held in abeyance
until the return of Counsellor Moore,
who has been in direct charge of the
correspondence in the latest phases.
Mr. M3ore has been on a month s va
cation, and returned today to Wash
ington. By mutual agreement the principals
have sought to maintain the strictest
secrecy as to the various steps in the
negotiations. It is reported here, how
ever, that the Japanese government has
reached the conclusion that it cannot
successfully meet the contention of the
State Department, that the California
land law is not in conflict with the
existing treaty, and has decided to
seek a new convention.
Unofficial information from Japan
Indicates that Japan, instead of seek
ing to substitute for the Knox treaty
of 1911 an entirely new convention of
general scope, is inclined to ask for an
agreement that will in conventional
terms recognize the right of Japanese
land ownership In any state of the
United States on even terms with the
citizens of any other nation. The at

garding such a proposition remains to

Rich Mien Who Were Liberal In Sea
son of Enthusiasm for Roose
velt Not Expected to Keep
Up Pace They Set.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Oot 1. The National Progres
sive Congressional campaign commit
tee, which has decided to run a third
party candidate In every Congressional
dlstrlot in the eountry next year, has
given no consideration to the question
of finances, as admitted by Chairman
Murdock and his right-hand man, Hine-
Practical politicians of long experi
ence are of the opinion that the third
party programme will be materially
changed before the campaign gets well
under way next Summer, unless the
party Is able to produce several liberal
angels" willing to contribute liber
ally from their own fortunes to help
along in the Congressional fight These
same politicians predict that the Bull
Moose committee will find it difficult
to find such liberal backers In the
ranks of the party.
Kich Men Liberal Last I.eur.
The Bull Moose campaign of last
year, when Theodore Roosevelt was
making the race for the Presidency,
was liberally financed, and men like
George W. Perkins, Bill Flinn, Gifford
Pinchot, Frank Munsey and Charles R,
Crane went deep into their pockets to
produce the wherewithal to carry on
the fight All through that campaign
the Bull Moose leaders pleaded pov
erty, but it was later shown that these
rich men, enthuslastio supporters of
the Colonel, had been liberal in their
It is hardly to be supposed that these
same men, however, will care to dig
into their private wealth to finance a
country-wide Congressional campaign,
for they know, as everyone else knows,
that nothing substantial is to be gained
by nominating Bull Moose candidates in
every Congressional district. Today
there are nine Bull Moose members In
the House of Representatives, and they
were elected in the year when Colonel
Roosevelt was heading their party
ticket and usually from districts where
the Colonel's vote was overwhelming.
Since that election it has been dem
oustrated time and again that the Bull
Moose vote has dwindled fully 50 per
cent within a year, and if the dislnte
gration continues for another year the
third party will be far weaker in No
vember, 1914, than it is today.
Colonel Not Important Factor.
Moreover, in the Congressional cam
paign next year Colonel Roosevelt will
not be a factor, . unless he cares to
"help out the boys" with a few
speeches and letters of indorsement.
He. will not be on the ticket and will
not swell the vote as he dldlast year.
Therefore, unless the third party pulls
together again it is reasonable to as
sume that its representation in the
next House will be smaller even than
It is today. With this prospect staring
the party in the" face, what incentive
is there for wealthy members of the
party to contribute large sums of mon
ey to a campaign destined to be barren
of practical resultsT
Without a well-filled war chest tne
Bull Moose party cannot enter a can
didate In each Congressional district
in the country, unless it .s willing to
see these candidates in most Instances
go down to overwhelming defeat. Such
general defeat would not tend ' to
strengthen the party before the coun
try, but rather would contribute to its
weakness. For these reasons it is to
be assumed that the Bull Moose pro
gramme, comprenensive as ii now
seems, will undergo radical alterations
before the Congressional campaign
opens In earnest
