case In which George R. Koch , a dent

hart , another dentist , suicided by bang
ing. The strain of that murder trial
Is believed to have hastened the ond.
There was much nterest In Norfolk
over the Koch murder trial because of
the presence In Now Ulra of many

HINTS AT SECESSION IFJAPANESE
MATTER GOES WRONG.
STATE RIGHTS ARE UPHELD
People of the Golden Gate State Hate
the Japanese and Declare White
Children Do Not Have to Go to the
Same Schools Thousands Monthly
San Francisco , Dec. G. California Is
rebellious , if not in a state of rebel
lion. Standing on Its new problem , or
rather on the now phase of an old
problem , the Golden State has raised
the banner of state rights , and has de
clared more strongly on the color ques
tion than over the south declared ,
slnco the recent unpleasantness.
California Is not afraid of war. It
wants no war with the rest of the
United States , but demands a "friend
ly fight" In the supreme court to de
cide whether or not California shall
have the right to rule Itself In local
matters and handle tne color question
In its own way.
Neither does California seek a war
with Japan. In fact , Callfornlans
laugh at such an Idea , but here , on the
strip of land which must stand the
brunt of the battering , If ever Japan
and the United States go to war , there
Is no man who fears Japan.
"The school board of San Francisco
never will change Its attitude on the
school question , " declared the super
intendent of schools , as he came from
the board meeting , which had been
discussing the question.
"President Roosevelt's requests or
orders will bo ignored by us. The Jap
anese must stay in their own school.
We are acting under a state law passed
in 1872 , before there ever was any
Idea of this situation. If President
Roosevelt or the federal congress has
any requests to make , they must make
them of the California legislature.
The legislature can change the laws in
a moment , but wo cannot. If the legis
lature of California refuses to change
the law , we want and hope for final
decision of the case in the supreme
court of the United States.
"If California Is to remain one of
the United States , " declared the com
missioner of labor for California , "then
it must stop this Invasion and settle
the question. If wo do not settle the
Japanese question soon , our children
will settle It , or try to settle It from
the other side of the Sierras. The
Japanese are swarming into California
at the rate of over a thousand a month
more arrogant , more chesty than any
other people. They do not demand
equality. They want an acknowledge
ment of their superiority.
"O , nobody In California is afraid of
the Japanese or of war with Japan.
Roosevelt appears to bo afraid of war ,
but there are thousands of Callfornl
ans who would welcome it.
"As commissioner of labor , I realIze -
Izo that the problem Is an enormous
ono. I would no more think of driving
out all the Japanese today than 1
would think of letting them all come
In. This problem must be handled
sanely. California needs labor , and , at
the sumo time , It faces the destruction
and the driving out of all the whites.
"There never was a time In history ,
since the time of the primeval age ,
that the two races have lived together
In harmony. Either they Intermingled
or one became the serf of the other.
Wo seem to have settled the question
of serfdom In that war over the ne-
roes. The whites will not amalga
mate with the Japanese. There is the
The feeling in San Francisco Is high.
The city end parts of the state are
openly , bitterly and resentfully op
posed to the administration's stand in
regard to the school question In San
Francisco. The ninety-three orientals
who have under the state hiw , been
placed and segregated from the re
mainder of the public school chilren
of this wrecked city may prove the
cause of one of the most serious inter
national complications ever faced by
the United States and one which may
cost her dear if the views of the Call-
fornlans are true.
The people of San Francisco , Its ed
ucators , Its officials , Its politicians and
its thinkers declare that Japan is not
at all Interested in the question of the
ninety-three segregated orientals , but
that the Japs are seeking to find a
cause for a quarrel with the United
States and have chosen the San Fran
cisco school situation as the bone over
which to pick a quarrel and start a
It Is openly stated that the Jap be
lieves the quicker he strikes at Amor-
lea the bettor and that ho is seeking
over a trivial question , which the
school board declares was the result
not of any slight to Japan nor of any
Insult , Intended or otherwise either to
Japan or China , but as a direct result
of the necessity arising from the earth
quake and fire which destroyed the
city , to start a war to decide quickly
which nation shall bo the master of the
Resents President's Action.
Not only does California , especially
Sdn Francisco , resent the attitude of
Japan , but oven more It resents the
apparent attitude of President Roose-
volt's administration. California Is
rather a peculiar state. It Is so far off
from all the rest of the United States
and has been so independent , so rich ,
so big , and has developed so rapidly
that It thinks it is quite big enough
now to decide for Itself. It resents im
perial federal Interference , even as
certain of the southern states once re
sented it and ns , later Illinois resented
It when federal troops wore sent to
The attitude of the people Is rather
odd. The labor unions are bitterly op
posed to Japanese labor , for strictly
selfish reasons. The rest of the people
ple are opposed to the Japanese be
cause they say Japan is getting "too
In San Francisco It Is great fun for r
"kids" to "soak n skipper , " which
means to throw a brick at a Japanese.
Odd as It may seem , these same Call-
fornlans whoso fathers , when they
were small , stoned the Chinese In the
streets , now treat the Chlnamon with
some respect , and oven regard him as
an honest , hard-working laborer while
they hate and detest the "sklppy. "
