ANTI - JAPS ATTEMPT TRICK
Nearly oreesafal ' Effort to Pash
Separate School Bill Threagh
SACRAMENTO, Ca.1.. Feb. 17.-An un
availing attempt was made late this after
noon In ths lower bouse of the legislature
to accomplish by amendment to an In
nocent looking achool bill, ths segregation
ot Japanese pupils In tb public schools. .
Its Intent' was to do practically the same
thing sought to b done In Assemblyman
Johnson's measure, that rscsntly caused
President Roosevelt to address the Cali
fornia legislature through Governor Gllletc.
The bill Under consideration was an act
to amend the political cod by "dtrmln
ing the number of yeara of Instruction In
ths dsy and eventng elementary schools;
determining the age pf admission to such
schools and providing for separate schools
for Indian, Mongolian and Chinese chil
dren." ...... , .
The amendment which was offered by
Assembly man Harry Polsley of Red Blurrs
was to insert the .word "Malay" after
Mongolian. This Vas declared by Assem
blyman Hackelt, who introduced the bill
and .objected to the amendment might
finally result In the exclusion of Japanese
children. The letter race he ssld, con
tended ' that they" wera ' Malays, not
Mongolians, aa had been the contention of
the San r'rancisco school board, when it
resolved two years ego to segregate chil
dren under the present lew.
Assemblyman Rutherford of Truck was
In the chair snd the house was disposing
of bills oa second reading, when tha amend
ment by Mr. Polaley came aa a shock to
thoee who recently stood by President
Roosevelt ' and Governor Olllett In their
fight agalnat the Johnson school segre
gation bill. A Messenger was dispatched
at ones In search of Speaker Stanton, who
hastened to the assembly chamber atd
aelsed ths gavel Just before the question
waa submitted (o a vole.
A roll call was demanded and until the
result was announced the speaker wore
an extremely worried appearance.
The amendment finally waa defeated by
a vot of 17 to 18.

blood. It is a diseased condition of the flesh at that particular apoV caused
and kept inflamed and irritated by a continual discharge into it,-of 'un
healthy matter from the circulation. No treatment can have any curative ef
fect except a medicine which will renovate the blood and entirely rwpove tha
cause. Salves, washes, lotions, etc., are sometime helpful in reduclDjr in
flammation, cleansing the ulcer, or perhaps lessening; the discharge, but auch
applications do aot reach the blood where the disease germs are located
and can never effect a cure. , S. S S. goes down into the 'circulation,
drives out all impurities and morbid matter, and by nourishing the flesh
with rich pure blood causes the place to heal naturally and permanently.
S. S. 8. does not make a surface cure, but by beginning at the bottom, and
rebuilding broken-down Itissue, and supplying healthful, healing qualities to
the blood, causes the place to fill in with new, firm flesh, while it steadily
but surely etlects a permanent cure. The ulcer can not exist when ; the
blood is pure, and S. S. S. will thoroughly purify the blood. , Book oa Sores
