FAITHFUL CHRONICLE OF
ALL IMPORTANT ITEMS.
DREW BILL BEATEN
CALIFORNIA ASSEMBLY K EJECTS
AMI-JAP LAW, 48 TO 28.
Debaters Its Pnssnge All Day Discus
sion Is Opened by llie Father of the
Mrnmiro, Who Made a Vigorous Ef
fort In Its Behalf.
After a debate extending from 11
nVlnrk W.ilnftRrluv mornlnff until 6 T.
m. the California assembly by a vote
of 48 to 28 rejected the bill drawn by
A. M. Drew, barring aliens from own
ership of land In California. The bill
had been amended at the request of
President Roosevelt and Secretary
Root, so that the clause applying to
Japanese only was eliminated, making
the bill apply to all aliens, but the
measure aroused such a storm of oppo
sition that long before the debate was
closed by Mr. Drew it was apparent
the measure would be defeated.
In substance the objection to It was
that it would drive at least $1,000,
000,000 of foreign capital out of the
state and might Jeopardize the present
friendly commercial relations with Ja
pan, i .,;....
The supporters of the bill contended
that the state was being overrun with
thrifty Japanese who were gradually
gaining an impregnable position as
land owners, and whose government
was trying to dictate to California re
Assemblyman Grove L. Johnson, of
Sacramento, ex-congressman and au
thor of four bills sesregatlng Japanese
in schools and residential districts, and
preventing aliens being members of
corporations, made an impassioned ap
peal for the enactment of the Drew
bill. At the climax of his sp'eech he
walked backward from his seat to the
lobby rail-and seizing In his arms a
golden haired girl of 3 years held her
aloft and said that he was "in favor
of this as opposed to the Japanese
menace to our Institutions."

dlebaugh at Denver, Colo., Wednesday
and died shortly after being removed

Walton was dying when the hospital
was reached, but gasped out: "That
man thought I stole his wife."
The shooting occurred on Sixteenth
street, the principal thoroughfare of
Denver, and was witnessed by hun
dreds of shoppers. A wild rush for
safety took place when the shots were
being fired. v-
Cradlebaugh, according to Chief of
Police Armstrong, called on the latter
at police headquarters and told him
that Walton had run away from Wal
lace with his wife.
He did not cause a disturbance, but
wished to recover his children, whom
their mother had taken with her. Cra
dlebaugh, who was arrested imme
diately after the shooting, refused tj

Largo Crowd Attracted, to tlic PubllO
The public galleries in the duma
were crowded Tuesday, but the gov
ernment benches were empty when the
house resumed Its sessions after the
holidays, the attraction of the house
being the Interpellations on the sub
ject of government spies in connec
tion with the cases of Azef, the head
of the fighting Russian socialists, who
was recently declared to be In reality
a government spy, and Lopuklne, for
mer director of police In the depart
ment of the ministry of the Interior,
charged with higlt. treason.
M. Pergament, a noted lawyer, pre
sented the Interpellation of the con
stitutional democrats. He declared
that the "agents provocateurs" are
now the greatest power In Russia, and
Jecrled the system of sending out men
to Instigate crime as destructive to all
confidence and security. He accused
the government of being in the same
category as the revolutionary organ
izations and equally responsible for
the murders of Grand Dukes Sergius
and Von Plehve.
Other members made similar accu
sations, the laborlte bulat declaring
that high Russian personages were
plundered out of the state funds and
that It was the ancestors of the octo
berlsts who killed Paul I. and Peter
III. It was a curious fn.;t that Jn
spite of the tremendous Interest In the
affair these fiery denunciations caused
no scenes In the duma. The Interpel
lations were adopted, after which they
were referred to a committtee.
