No Chance of War
Between Japan and
U, S,, Asserts Maxey
LINCOLN, Neb., May J.-'There Is no
likelihood of war between the United
States and Japan. Japan does not want
war. Neither do we. It Is probable that
the federal government will go to any
extent to avoid complications with the
Japanese over the California situation."
This was the statement of Dr. Edwin
Mnxey, professor of International taw at
the University of Nebraska, and one of
the men retained by the Japanese govern
ment as counsel In the first Japanese
controversy In California. Dr. Maxey, at
the time of the school controversy In
California made a careful study of the
Japanese question, and has been follow
ing the present trouble closely,
"The present complications, outside of
trouble with Japan, however, present a
question fundamental In Its nature and
one whloh will go to the very rudiments
of tho system of American government,"
said Dr. Maxey. "It will mean Just what
power and pressure may be brought to
boar upon the Individual state .by the
federal government to prevent an action
which will embarrass tho states as a
"Tho question Is one which has never
before come up nnd could even assume
the magnltudo of the one which was
settled when tho southern states at
tempted to withdraw from the union.
The question will probably be settled In
the courts and perhaps the proposed antl
alien land law of California will be de
clared unconstitutional. But If the Call,
fornlans should refuse to obey the ulti
matum of the courts, then the question
will be as to how far the United States
can go to force California to a decision."
ur. Maxey believes the southern states
wilt give moral support to California.

more than that charged by the old line
companies under the new law, with tho
additional benefit that all surplus over

In the state considerably and tho mutual

amount of premiums now paid with a
view of adjusting rates which will insure
the success of the mutual Insurance com
