WASHINGTON, Nov. 3 The question of
granting naturalisation to Turkish subjects
Is for the determination of competent
courts. 'This Is the attitude of the State
department as defined In a statement Is
sued today and Is taken to indicate that
the department is not prepared to accept
without question the conclusion of the bu
reau of naturalization of tne Department
of Commerce and Labor that Turkish sub
jects are not entitled to naturalisation
The recent ruling of Chief Richard K.
Campbell of the bureau of naturalisation
that Syrians and their racial kindred, who
are Turkish subjects, were yellow, not
white, and that they were barred, there
fore, from naturalization under existing
laws, called forth a protest from the Otto
man charge d'affaires a few days ago,
The State department's view Is that Tur
key Is responsible In large measure for the
situation that has arisen. The department's
statement Is as follows:
"For a quarter of a century the govern
ment of the nlted States has sought, and
today continues to seek, to negotiate with
the Ottoman government a naturalisation
convention to provide for the recognition
by that government of the expatriation of
Turkish subjects duly naturalized as Amer
ican citizens. This well Illustrates the fact
that there has been absolutely no change
In the policy or views of the Department
of State on the subject of the naturaliza
tion of Turkish subjects.
Courts Will Determine.
The basis of recent press reports upon
this question have recently come to the
notice of the, Department of State. Insofar
as such reports may have been discussed as
affecting the question of naturalisation. It
Is hardly necessary to state that they are
without effect upon the above ' policy or
upon the question of granting naturalisa
tion a question which now, aa In the past.
Is for the determination of the competent

above Indicated, It may be added that the

Dr. Justin S. Klrreh of New York, who
has been upturning . available stone in
Washington recently In his effort to over
throw Mr. Campbell's ruling, has appealed
to the Smithsonian experts with results
which he regards as hlghly'satlsfactory.
He came out tonight with the statement
that Dr. Hrdllcka of the Institute's division
of physical anthropology has entirely con
firmed his contention that the Syrians and
their racial kindred, sought by Mr. Camp
bell to be excluded, are Indisputably of tne
white race. No official utterance on the
subject has been made by the Smithsonian
institute, which shows no disposition to
enter the controversy In any formal way In
absence of an official request.
Dr. Klrreh said that Dr. Hrdllcka con
firmed him in the lew that so far were the j
Syrians from being of the yellow race that

A number of Syrians who have taken out
first papers and are nearly ready to prove
up on homesteads in northwestern South
Dakota are seriously perturbed over the

that they are Asiatics and therefore can
not become cltlxens of the United States.
The Syrians are well-behaved, progressive
and have made good farmers. One of them
proudly declared that If the United Slates
does not want them they will not stay;
that they do not care to remain here un

occurred as the president was leaving the
luncheon. The way from the clubhouse
