Japanese Immigration Row Is
Said to Be Unsettled.
CaHfornlan Says Xlpponese Gave
. Out Story to Allay Effect or
' Alien Land Law.
SACRAMENTO, Cal.. Dec 25. Re
eently published reports that the state
department at Washington had come
to an understanding with Japan re
rarding- Japanese immigration into
the United States, which appeared in
uoKio. in Japanese language news
papers along the Pacific coast and
afterward were given general publi
cation throughout the United States,
were erroneous, according to V.
McClatchy, Sacramento publisher, who
told today of his conferences at the
national capital as the official repre
tentative of the Japanese Exclusion
league and of the Los Angeles County
Anti-Asiatic association.
Mr. McClatchy, during his Washing
ton visit, had conferences with Act
Ing Secretary of State Davis. Ambas
eador Morris, who is temporarily in
this country from his post in Toklo,
and with the California delegation in
congress. He also conferred with
members of the senate and house com
mittees concerned with the subject
of immigration and foreign relations.
Invrtfgratlra to Be Made.
According to Mr. McClatchy, Am
bassador Morris has been commis
sioned by the statj department to act
for It on a careful examination of all
the facts having to do with immi
gration, and to make a report which
may serve as a basis for negotiations
to 'be had with the representatives of
Japan looking to abrogation or modi
fication of the present "gentlemen's
agreement," and the outlining of
terms for a new treaty covering im
migration. In this connection, Mr.
McClatchy said, Mr. Morris has had
with Japanese Ambassador Shidehara
at Washington an unofficial inter
change of views creating no obliga
tion on either side, and held for the
purpose of clearing, so far as that
can be done, the ground for the
official negotiations to follow.
"Mr. Morris has not as yet sub
mitted his report to the state depart
ment," Mr. McClatchy declared, "and
as a matter of fact has not yet com
pleted it. so that any statement to
the effect that the terms of a treaty
have been agreed upon, is entirely
without foundation."
, Statement Declared Roue.
The statement was circulated in
Japan evidently for the purpose of
making a better public feeling there I
prior to the California election," Mr. j
McClatchy declared. "It was gener
ally conceded tnat the California alien
land law was passed by a large ma- j
jorlty. and the Japanese public was
Induced to accept that result philo
ophically on the theory that the
Japanese ambassador had already ar
ranged with our state department the
terms of a treaty under which the
effect of the California law would be
nullified. That would seem to be the
incentive for the statement as pub
lished in Japan."
It is probable that the Johnson
exclusion bill, -which would exclude
all immigration for a period of one
year, and which has passed the house
and Is now In senate committee, will
be the only immigration measure be
fore the present session of congress.
Mr. McClatchy said.
Japan Looking Forward to New
Treaty With United States.
TOKIO. Dee. 24. Addressing pre
liminary meetings of the diet here to
day. Viscount Uchida, thes foreign
minister, expressed the opinion that a
new Japanese-American treaty win
be concluded leading to nullification
of the California land law. He said
he expected such action to result from
the negotiations which have been In
progress at Washington between Am
bassador Shidehara and Roland S.
Morris, United States ambassador to
The ambassadors; he said, were
making efforts to obtain an under
standing with the senate to secure
passage of the treaty. Me announcea
that in view of the sincerity with
which they are endeavoring to solve
the problem, Japan has refrained from
protesting against the California law,
but that if the negotiations fail a
formal protest would be lodged.
Answering interpellations, viscount
Uchida said that the negotiations
were proceeding on the understanding
that such a treaty would override the
state laws. -
Foreign Minister Withholds Reply
Until Formal Session of Diet.
TOKIO, Dec 24. When questioned
today at a preliminary meeting of
the diet regarding discrepancies be
tween the reports of missionaries and
those of the military as to whether
massacres had occurred at Chlen-Tao,
Manchuria, Viscount Uchida, the for
eign minister, announced that he
would withhold his reply until the
formal session of the chamber.

Between, 300 and 400 Families In
Portland) Provided For Scouts
and Others Assist.
Between 300 and 400 families in
Portland owed their joyous Christmas
to the efforts of workers in the pub
lio welfare bureau. Friday was a
busy day at headquarters in the
courthouse, where boy scouts and a
motor squad from the -Knights of
Pythias lodge directed distribution of
donations of food, clothing and toys
at comes ot me needy.
With the exception of 15 families
all were taken care of at dinner yes
terday by private individuals and
churches. The few left over received
baskets from -the welfare bureau.
Probably $5000 was spent yesterday
through outside sources for enter
tainment and dinners given in private
homes. The bureau itself spent little
from its own fund, which has been
devoted mainly to the relief of chil
dren and purchase of needed clothing
between December' 1 and Christma
day. A. R. Gephart, head of the or
ganization, said he ' believed every
one under his observation bad been
amply clothed.
Money was still coming in yester
day and Mr. Gephart found 162.50 in
his mail in the morning.
