lemons In tho history of their long
serrlco to the republican and demo

Suffrage association, composed of
some of the most representative

one Indignant snffrago loadcr.today.
"Without our loyalty ho would have

"Tho people of California demand 9
stringent anti-alien land law. If we
do not grant their demand they will
accomplish audi action by tho Ini
tiative." So strong has been the sentiment
ot tho people that not a single sen
ator or assemblyman can bo founa
who will admit opposition to an anti
alien law. Some favor amendments
to the measures now before the sen
ate and assembly, but if there are
any who will oppose a law of some
sort barring aliens from holding
lands, they are keeping discreetly In
"Tho desks ot many members are
filled with letters from the people
of the state demanding the passage
of this bill.," said Sanford today.
"We are not going to act in direct
violation of these pleas. They come
