were not brewed by the whims I
and caprices of whimsical nature, 5
but that all the rabbits of tK "

at some point in Wasco counrjy I
for a potlatch That in the J
evening they united for a whistle 1

near future to see such trsaty ar

Japan that Japanese will not be per

All that House Kill 1 02 can do is to
prevent such people from acquiring
land in Oregon. At t lie time of vot
ing on this matter 1 had liefore me s
telegram of Senator MeNary's as fol

that the states concerned should take
no action that might lead to govern

driven out. I have lived here
for twenty years and in all that
time I have never known as lit

has been kind to us and again
that the rabbit has failed to
