Knowlnnd said, "It Is a good thing tor California congressmen tho pres ident's message did not come before the election." Raynor of Maryland, Indignant. Washington, Dec. 4. Senator Ray nor of Maryland, regards the presi dent's attitude on the Japanese ques tion as absolutely Indefensible and such a threat as using force against the state as "outrageous and start ling to the imagination." This after noon he offered a senate resolution directing the president to notify all the world, Japan Included, that the states have exclusive rights of their schools. The resolution proposed declares It Is the opinion of the senate there Is no provision in the treaty with Japan that relates to the subject, or Inter feres with the right of the state of California to conduct Its . system of schools In accordance with its own legislation.
