TUESDAY, APRIL 29,1913. PRICE TWO I Secretary of State Holds Conferences in California on new anti-alien 8111 ATTITUDE OF WILSON ADMINI8-; TRAtIoN EXPLAINED TO GOV-.* ERNOR JOHNSON AND STATJE LEADERS AT SACRAMENTO-OF FERS SEVERAL PLANS Vo �] AVOID CRISIS WITH JAPAN \ ASKS FOR DELAY f (By International News Service) Sacramento, Cal., April 28.-Secre tary of State William Jennings Bryan caiuo here today and explained to Gov crnor Johnson and members of the l-.egislature the attitude o� the Wii Koti administration toward the alien land bill, to which Japan has taken exception. The Secretary of State did not luiow of an amendment to the Constitution of California which changed the status of the case. Neither did he not know of the Arizona or Washington state laws betoi-e he arrived. The gist of Mr. Bryan's message was that President Wilson wanted llie alien land question handled at AVashington Instead of Sacramento. He asked for delay and proposed that a committee of state legislators and a commission from Washington be atspoiuted to consider a compromise. As a last resort he asked that if some anti-alien law had to be enacted at this session that it be patterned after the law of Illinois, which limits tlie holding of land by aliens to six years unless they become citizens of the United States. Last of all he was for the flat-foot-anti-alien laws of the District of Columbia. "I don't believe the Secretary's talk has gained a single convert," said a member favorable to the Bryan view. Mr. Bryan told Lieutenant Governor Wallace he had agreeably sur-|| prised with his reception and was I very much pleased with the situation. Then he put in a long time getting up a long cipher dispatch to President l| Wilson. Legislators were not so optimistic. Said Senator Oberdon, president pro torn of the Senate: "Mr. Bryan has not changed the ^ sentiment for an anti-alien land bill, i one whit. He has rather solidified Kitlie feeling for a bill. Instead of [bringing us some new information he [lias shown us nothing that we did not iknow before and now he is only jock-(eying with words. I believe there are ^ias many votes for a bill now as there (were before Mr. Bryan talked to us l/jpcrhaps more votes." Senator Tliopmson, of Los Angeles, who lias charge of the bill, though not us forceful, was of the same opinion. |Hc said: s Senator Thompson, of Los Angeles, [wiio has charge of tlie bill, though not ;iH forceful, was of the same opinion, le said: "Secretary Bryan has not yet turned iiacK the tide of sentiment in favor |j� the anti-alien land law. I do not icliovo that most of the members of 'lieTogislature have been stirred to �uiy feeling that a bill directed against hose inalienable to citizenship will 0 followed by dangerous results, lie 1 not through. Of course he has oth-r things to tell and before he is Ihrough, our ideas may be changed, ut so far he has not won his case. Tliere was nothing spectacular jhout Mr. Bryan's coming or his re-:)ptlon. Arriving at 6 o'clock In the iiornlng, a scattering of people, in-udlng three curious Japanese, were the depot to greet him. Governor hiiKon wt^s on hand and they pro-neded to tho Executive mansion in [10 Governor's, auto. After breakfast Bryan and the vernor went to the latter's office, lore Lieutenant Governor Wallace d Speaker ,Young were called In nsultation. lilt was arranged that the Secretary State should appear before the nt session of the Legislature in ex-iutive session. The Governor and the Progressives lid that ail the mystery was at Bry-s request. The Democrats on the lor had put tlie blame on the Gov-iior and tlie Progressives. So lin-tant did the discussion seem tliat . Bryan dictated this; i'lt Is not fair to say that outsiders excluded at the request of any one pie. It was the consensus of OUTFIT ARRIVES Dust Killing Machinery Here to Be flin Work on Streets and Nearby Pikes. A traction sprinkler, belonging to the United Gas Improvement Co., of Philadelphia, arrived here last evening from Staunton, to be "Used by the Philadelphia people in placing a water gas tar binder on the principal streets of Harrisonburg, In accordance with a contract recently made with the town. The sprinkler, which Is ibullt on an anto-truck, made the trip over the Valley pike, a considerable portion of which will shortly be treated with tlie same binder. A street sweeper, which accompanied the outfit, suffered a broken axle a mile south of town, and was permitted to remain over night at the place where tho accident occurred. While in this section the Philadelphia company will place their product on several miles of the East Rockingham turnpike, between Harris onburg and the Massanetta Spring road, and for a short distance east of the last named road. The binder, which is known as "Ugite", is said to abate all dust and make roads and streets quite waterproof. Following Its application, the dressing Is topped off with stone chips thereby giving the surface the ap pearance of an asphalt finish. WKIEIIEII 6.0.
