So far as preliminaries are con-
corned, tho felicitous correspondence
between the president and Governor
Johnson of California indicates a
satisfactory adjustment ultimately
of the affairs on tho Pacific coast
affecting our Jnpaneso friends. Tho
federal government has approachod
tho problem in tho utmost spirit ot
friendly counsol and Its offices have
been kindly received. Secretary
Bryan's personal mission to Sacra
mento, therefore, should result in a
solution, If not wholly acceptable to
Japan, If, as It appears, California
persists In its determination for
somo kind of legislation denying tho
right of owning land to Japanese,
yet avoiding dlroct offenso by mak

YORK, Neb., April M.-To the Editor
of The Bee: I wish to ask through your
busy columns when the laws of fact and
logic were changed, for I read in the
World-Herald that the position of the
president was unassailable. Then In the
same paper I found something like this:
"The president says the tariff must
come down, no matter who it .hurts, so
the people can get their living cheaper."
Then a protest goes up from the farmer
and the president alms to put him to
flight by saying that he was not pro
tected anyway; as there was no Importa
tion of his wares, It could not hurt "him
Now, why must It come down In their
line if it does not affect them. And If
this Is so how can It hurt the other fel
low now, or how will It help him to re
move It. That may be democratic logic,
but It should have a label on It, as com
mon people would never tako such a
looking critter for logic. But it Is on a
par with a party that with great acclaim
and much Jesture declares for "Equal
privileges to all, and special privileges
to none." And then put wool on a free
trade basis and give sugar protection,
when the promise was no protection, no
free trade, but tariff for revenuo only.

HUMPHREY, Neb., April 24. To the
Editor of The Bee: Congressman Steph
ens' letter in The Bee a few days ago
to the voters of this district regarding1
method of appointing postmasters, read
very much like a Joke, Insofar as the
town of Humphrey Is concerned. Ho has
let it be known broadcast over the
district that the primary Bhail govern In
his recommendation, yet In a letter to a
personal friend here he says he will.
and. In fact, has recommended a candi
date without regard to the primary or
giving the other applicants an opportunity
O voice their protests.
Ninety per cent of the voters of Hum
phrey are democrats, but It seems that
he thinks that democratic voters are In
capable of choosing their postmaster, nnd
wants the primary system to be used only
h republican communities.
It is rumored that his decision not to
allow a primary was arrived at shortly
after Congressman's Stephens' visit to
Lincoln, during the last session of the
legislature. One of tho applicants for
the Humphrey office Is a member ot tho
legislature and was approached and
solicited to vote for the purchase of tho
Fremont Normal by the state. This ho
refused to do. It was said at the time I
that unless he voted for the bill to buy i
the Normal he would never rccclvo Mr. i
Stephens' endorsement. Whether tho
party spoke with authority or not may j
never be known,' but the Humphrey peo-,
pie are to be denied what they thought
was their right under the oJten repeated
promise of their congressman, as far us
a recommendation of Congressman Steph
ens Is concerned.
Why not bo plain about It. Democrats
will not be allowed to choose their post
masters, but In republican cities tho pri
mary will be allowed, if Congressman
Stephens can gain credit for It regardless
of the rights ot tho people.
