The trio will remain here all day Friday and it is likely they will ar- rive in time tomorrow night to attend the Board of Trade banquet. he said, "not for the purpose of tak- exception to this_..particular ibill but to-sound a note of warning in a very Important matter. The question involved is this: Was this obligation incurred for expenditures which: are properly chargeable, to capital ac- count or does it represent an excess of expenditures over revenues on cur- rent account? If so it would be well to give n. plan pf; intimating to mun- icipalities that if they really incur ex- pense in excess of income and which should tie provided for out of current revenues they must not expect that they can :come to this legislature and be provided, with means to help them out of their predicament. .In this matter is to be found the crux of sound municipal financing principles which .should-not be ignored. Other- wise set of municipal councillors may very imnroperly leave to their successors a burden of obligation which should not be left over." .This is the feeiin- of practically all the members who are of the opinion that too much is being done by mun- icipalities during the- last few years. The bill in question was finally read referred to -the com mitlee on municipal law.

Americans everywhere are assured. that .Japan la's. reason to- believe that the ac- ion of the State Legislatures will in: any way affect the relations between lie two nations. It is believed, how- evrr, that the sensational presenta- tion of the situation by the California correspondents': of the Japanese pa- pers must seriously affect the busfr ness future and standing not only of Americans, but.ofVall foreigners in Japan. Ninety-nine per cent, of the Japanese are unable to of the foreigners in Japan being com alike.
