on the sup-position tha the new
Greek government is ready to be
guided- by Venizelos. In the earlier
part of his letter the ex-premier
pointed out that allied administra
tion of Thrace is not what the allies
contemplate, but Immediate trans
ference of eastern Thrace to Turkish
administration and the establish
ment of Turkish gendarmerie there
under the supervision of allied of
ficers alone. This he argued would
condemn the entire Christian popu
lation to complete destruction.
'If Turkish administration is re
established in Thrace before the

would be sheer blindness to ignore
that the Turks would immediately

presence of allied officers would not

admitted that it was not enough to
expel the king in order to repair the
broken thread of the Greek alliance

JAPANESE QUITS OREGON
GEORGE SHIM A TRANSFERS
Land in Central Oregon Turned
Over to George) Burtt,
BEND, Or- Oct. 3. (Special.)
Exit the Japanese land owner from
central Oregon. Withdrawal of
oriental interests from agriculture
in this section of the state was
made known yesterday afternoon in
Bend when O. B. Hardy arrived in
the city from Redmond to file deeds
transferring the holdings of George
Shima, Japanese potato king, to
George L. Burtt, prominent Pacific
coast .potato broker. Twenty-five
hundred acres of land were involved
in the deal. The consideration was
not made puiblic.
The property which passed from
Japanese ownership included the
C. F. Hosklns ranch at Lower Bridge
and land at Terrebonne and in the
vicinity of Opal City. It was
acquired in 1919 by Shima, who
operates extensively in California,
and who recognized the possibilities
offered in central Oregon for the
raising of high-grade seed. It has
been his intention to use his central
Oregon holdings to produce seed for
his California potato farms. -
Almost from the first, however,
opposition was encountered, partic
ularly when Japanese were sent
into the Deschutes valley to direct
the cultivation of Shima's lands.
This was regarded by many white
farmers as the entering wedge for
Japanese colonization. Indignation
meetings were held by settlers, with
the most bitter opposition centering
in Terrebonne and last year the
plan was virtually given up.
Burtt's purchase was taken as an
indication that cultivation of pota
toes on a large scale will be started,
especially as the deal included all
farming equipment which had been
procured for 'the various Shima
holdings. It is expected that Burtt's
plan will be made known when he
visits in Redmond at "the time of
the annual county ,fair.

further asserted that the Great

WASHINGTON, D. C. Oct. 3. Ar
gument was begun in the supreme
court today by George W. Wicker
sham, ex-attorney general, in two
of a number of cases now on the
dock to define the rights of Jap
anese in this country. He appeared
in behalf of Tako Ozawa In a pro
ceeding against the United States
and for Takujl Tamashita and
Charles Hiokono against the secre
tary of the ajate of Washington,
the cases presenting for final de
cision the long standing contro
versy over the eligibility of Japan
ese for naturalization.
The Ozawa case originated in
Hawaii in 1914, when the United
States district court denied him cit
izenship, and has been pending In
the supreme court since 1917 on a
certificate from the ninth circuit
court of appeals asking instruc
tions. When heretofore reached for
argument the case was passed at
the request of the government, the
last time when the limitation of
armament conference was in ses
sion. Government Brief Ready.
The government has 'prepared an
elaborate brief and is now ready to
proceed. It contends that Ozawa
is not eligible for citizenship even
though the supreme court should
hold that Japanese as a race may
be naturalized, for the reason that
he delayed in filing his application1
more than seven years after the
passage of the act of 1906.
The government in its brief urged
the court, should it consider the
case, moot, to decide it "in order
that the rights of persons of the
Japanese race with respect to nat
uralization may be settled."
In the state of Washington case,
the two Japanese were naturalli:ed
by the superior court of Pierce
county, that state, in 1902. but in
corporation as a real estate firm
was refused them by the secretary
of state on the ground that their
naturalization had not been author
ized by law. The same reason had
been advanced by the state for re
fusing Yamashita admission to the
Eligibility Is Point.
In his argument, which was not
concluded when the court adjourned
for the day, Mr. Wickersham pointed
out that the questions certified by
the ninth circuit court of appeals
in the Ozawa case presented the
real issue. These were whether
section 2169 of the revised statutes,
providing for the naturalization of
"free white persons" placed a limit
upon the naturalization and immi
gration act of 190, which was en
acted under the Roosevelt adminis
tration, contained no such restric
tions, and whether one of the Jap
anese race and born in Japan is
eligible for citizenship.
in a minute review of legislation
on the subject, Mr. Wickersham
contended that the restrictions of
"free white persons" was placed in
the law to exclude negro slaves. In
support of this assertion and to
emphasize the confusion of decU
sions on the subject, he declared
that at least 50 Japanese had been
naturalized and that many immi
grants from other countries of Asia
had been admitted to citizenship,
while others from the same coun
tries had been denied such privi
leges. Washington Attorney Present.
