NO FORMAL, PROTEST IS MADE
Japan Not Taking- Official Kxcen
tlon in California Acts.
WASHINGTON, April 14. It may be
stated on the highest authority that
at no stage of the very personal ex
changes that have been in progress has
therp been anything in the nature of a
"protest" from the Japanese government
against what has ben done in California.
The latest Instructions ito the ambas
sador from Toklo look .only to the con
tinuance by the' embaeiyfot the course
it has pursued from the beginning, of
relying upon moral suasion and a. digni
fied presentation of the unfortunate im-
preeslon produced In Japan by this un
expected recrudescence of anti-Japanese
feeling on the Pacific coast
A chance remark dropped from high
quarter make. It eyldent that the
treaty is perhaps In danger from attack
from another direction. It la known that
some consideration already has been
given to a suggestion emanating from the
Paclflo coast, that a treaty like any
statute Is subject to the test of consti
tutionality by the supremo court.
Questions like this and that touching
the r-ght of the Japanese to naturalisation
in America under existing law, however,
are reserved for consideration in case of
the efforts now making to secure a
satisfactory legislation In California

FREE SUGAR jNTHREE YEARS
Democratic Caucus Determines
AGREEMENT AFTER ARGUMENT
llnnar Leaders Spend Major I'oruon
of liar In Comlnic tn Under
standing on Proposl
WASHINGTON. April IX -Immediate
free sugar wa rejected Saturday by the
linn democratic caucus by an over
whelming vote, following an appeal of tho
democratic lenders to stand by tne presi
dent and the ways and means committee.
This leaves the sugar schedule un
changed from the compromise form In
which It wns presented to the caucus by
Chairman Underwood and his colleagues
of tho committee, following conferences
between tho While. House and leaders of
both houses of congress. The democratic
members of the committee, Including such
free traders as Representative Harrison
of New York, and Ralnoy of Illinois,
stood as a unit for the thrce-xcar gradual
reduction to a free sugar basis.
Besides this nctlon the caucus left open
the exact date when sugar would go on
the free list In 1916. An amendment pro
nosed by Representative Hardwlck of
Georgia, propoued that the time It should
take effect should be May 1, 1016, so as
to be effective before the beginning of
the canning season. The caucus agreed
to leave the matter to be brought up by
the ways and means committee, after nil
tho rest of the tariff bill has been dls-
posed of In caucus.
End of Argument.
The overthrow of tho immediate free
sugar movement came at tho closo of
a day or arguments and tho amend
ment proposing that sugar should becomo
free with the operation of the new tariff
law was made by Representative Hard
wlck. It precipitated the real fight of
the day and was lost by a vote of 165 to
"We will concedu," House Leader
Underwood said, agreeing with some of
tho opponents of the bill, "that Imme
diate free sugar would put the domestic
planter out of business. But wo assert
also that freo sugar in three years will
destroy no legitimate Industry."
"Those who havo Invested their money
In sugar lands and havo planted crops
will have a chanco under tho plan of
revision to pay their bills and adjust
themselves to new conditions."
Mr. Underwood argued against tho Im
mediate free sugar amendment as vsll
as the amendment to extend tho freo
surar time from three to four years. llts
speech was received with loud npplauso
and cries of "Vote! Votel"
Representative Ralney of Illinois ap
pealed to the caucus to stand by the
Representative Dupre of Louisiana, re
plying to Mr. Underwood, challenged tho
statement made by the majority leader
that freo sugar ultimately would save
the consumer 1115,000,000 annually, Mr.
Dupre doclared that If the entlro saving
that would follow free sugar foil upon
the consumer the per capita saving per
day would be only one-third of a cent.
If there had been any doubt nbout the
result of the fight during the day It had
disappeared after Mr. Underwood nad
concluded tils .presentation of the sltua-
tlon and the members were gett'ng

WASHINGTON, April 13.-President
Wilson emerged from the first week of
the special tariff session of congress, ap
parently In a stronger position as Inf
lictive lender of democracy than nt any
tlmo since he assumed the presidency.
Within the brief space of seven days
ho had won a victory In tho caucus nt

At all points where Mr. Wilson's de
cision was instrumental in the fixing of
rates In tho new tariff hill, the full dem
ocratic membership of tho house voted to
sustain him in caucus by heavy majori
ties. House leaders, who deferred to
him In th fixing of many of the tariff
rates, have supported his decisions and
successfully rallied party support to his
defense as the ball ha been fought over
by the democratic members.
The tariff revision fight admittedly is
only begun! but tho dcvclopuments of
tho last week have convinced party leod
ers that there aro likely to bo few
changes from tho rates favored by tho
president: and llttlo dissension within
democratic ranks over tho final approval
of the bill.

The pontiff suffered from a high fever,
which registered 103 degrees. It gradu

Tho first symptom of nervous and
blood debility will show in that portion
of tho body which Is weakest whether
It be the stomach, heart, kidneys, liver
and lungs," says tho president of the
Electro-Oxygen Co., the famous nerve
specialist who has opened an Institution
for the treatment of chronic diseases by
the latest methods which have recently
been procured from Kuropean Inventors.
The method Is the Injection of Oxygen
Intravenously directly Into the blood
stream and the driving of oxygen di
rectly through tho Bkln. By exhaustive
experiments this method has proved the
most effective in overcoming obstinate
cases of long standing. Because one has
pains In the back does not necessarily
follow that their kidneys are diseased.
Perhaps tho trouble, is temporary, caus
ed from constipation, strain or nervous
debility, owing to the fact that the Unit
of communication between the brain und
the kidneys have become deranged.
"If this bo true the cause can bo
quickly removed by Klentrn Oxygen
which will once more put the brain in
direct' charge of the kidneys." Hun
dreds have been restored by this method;
it Is not nn' experiment. After a thor
ough examination the Uxpert will tell
you and truthfully whether your caso
can bo benefited by this method or not.
If you aro incurable you will be told of
that fact and your caso will bo respect
On the other hand If you can be re
lieved your case will be accepted and
you will receive tho best attention that
