Japan Will Ask

TOKIO, April 14. Japan official circles
are now Inclined to tho belief that noth
ing they can do will havo nny effect In
averting tho projected land ownership
legislation of California. AH soon as the
bill has passed, however, application will
ho made to tho federnl government of
the United States for an extension of
naturalization rights to tho Japanese

a discrimination against Japan.
Public meetings of protest nnil repre
sentations to tho American embassy hero
have been Innumerable, but the feeling
of hopelessness is pronounced.
The newspapers call attention to tho
"humiliating Insult to a nation which,
though hlgh-splrlted mid proud, has gone
out of Its way to maintain the most
friendly relations with tho United Htates.

Tho resolution said that the passage of
tho California land bill would greatly
damago America's prestige for fair play
and begged the Callfornlan legislature
to pause and Investigate . It also ex
pressed tho belief that the passage of tho
bill would work Injustice to the Japa

tion for Americans resident In Japan
who always have been recipients of cour.

It Is npparent that tho nurllngton In
tends to make Kearney a point of more
than ordinary Importance, as It has re
cently purchased seven blocks of ground
nlmost In the heart of tho town. This

to tho west It has purchased a tract of
land, about eighty acres, that It Ih pre

WASHINGTON. April lB.-Slow prog
ress in consideration of the new tariff
bill by the democratic house caucus has
upset the early prediction of administra
tion leaders that the bill would be ready
for the senate by May 1.
After a week of deliberation the caucus
Is less than half way through the pro
posed measure, with several of the Im
portant schedules yet to bo disposed of
notably wool and cotton. The Income tax
also Is certain to require considerable
time In discussion, as members desire to
have It thoroughly explained. Rcpre
sentatlve Cordell Hull of Tennessee, au
thor of the Income tax section, will have
charge of It In tho caucus. It probably
will not be reached before the last of the I
Today the caucus resumed considera
tion of tho agricultural schedule, wheat
being first taken up. Northwestern rep
resentatives opposed the free listing of
flour, declaring It Inconsistent with a
proposed duty of 10 cents a bushel on
wheat. Citrus fruits also were the tar
get for opposition as well as the free
listing of potatoes.
Illll ProgreKse .Slowly.
When deliberations were resumed to
day many members predicted that th"
j caucus would not be through the bill
I until the middle of next week In that
case (ts consideration in the houso can
not begin until late In that week, and
the prospect Is that It will be nearer
June 1 than May 1 beford the bill Is ready
for the senate.
Ilepresentatlve Underwood was suffi
ciently recovered from his Illness to re
sumo charge of tho bill In tho caucus,
although his friends urged him to return
home until completely well. Ho was so
anxious to guide the administration meas
ure through the caucus, however, and to
hasten Its consideration as much as pos
Bible that he remained on tho floor In
spite of some Illness.
Ilepresentatlve Levy of New York
moved- to place wheat on the free list.
Ilepresentatlve Kowler of Illinois ot
fercd an amendment to Incrcaso tho pro
posed duty on wheat from 10 cents to IS
cents a bushel.
Tho caucus rejected both amendments
and left the wheat rate as fixed by Mr.
Cnderwood and his colleagues.
When the citrus fruit provisions were
reached democrats from California ana
Florida began a fight to maintain present
duties on lemons, limes and oranges.
Representative Church of California of
fered an amendment restoring the rates
of the Dlngley act, a compromise. Rep
resentative Baker nnd Kcttncr 'of Cali
fornia nnd Hparkman of Florida sup
ported tho resolution and ilepresentatlve
Harrison of New York defended tho rates
proposed by the committee.
Tho Church amendment was rejected
as was also an amendment proposed by
Mr. Clark of Florida to Increase tho duty
on pineapples. This disposed of tho cit
rus fruit fight beforo the caucus and the
bills so far remained Intact. The cau
cus wound up the .agricultural schedule
