Fremont, Ncb.Septj 18. (Special
Telegram.) An intently earnest
audience filled the opera house to
hear Colonel Raymond Robins,
Con gressman Evans and Governor
McKelvie discuss the issues of the
political campaign here tonight. The
popularity of Colonel Robins, who
has long been- a leader in all pro

speeches at West Point next Mon

Arthur Schultz acted as chairman
of the meeting here .as in all other
points touched on this tour. Numbers
of former democrats, who have
kicked- over the party lines on. ac

policies of President Wilson and
his insistance on America joining
the league of nations, were noticc-

department to sell its surplus salmon

overseas until after the armistice
and then the movement ,was not
stopped for seven months.
Congratulates Women Voters.
The idea that a republican admin

Termination of Treaty of 1911
With Japan One of Big
Questions for Nw Ad-
,XT ' 111 ' 1
usion iNow illegal
By ARTHUR SEARS HENNING.
Cblcar Tribune-Omaha Be Leased Wire.
Washington, Sept. ' 19. Termina
tion of the treaty of 1911 with Jaoan.
legalizing Japanese immigration into
tne United Mates and the leasing of
land by Japanese, is a question that
is destined to be pressed upon the
next administration, as a result of
the race issue developing serious
proportions on the Pacific coast. '
-So long as this treaty remains in
effect, the exclusion of Japanese will
be illegal and the United States will
be compelled to continue to rely for
protection from the "yellow peril"
On the "gentlemen's agreement"
which the Californians charge, is be.
ing evaded by Ihe Japanese.
Article l of the treaty provides
of the high contracting parties 6hall
have liberty to enter, travel or re
side in the territories of the other, to
carry on trade, wholesale and retail,
to wn or lease and occupy houses,
manufactories, warehouses "and
shops.to employ agents of their
choice, to lease land for residential
and commercial purposes and gen
erally to do anything incident to or
necessary for trade, upon the same
terms as native citizens or subjects,
submitting themselves to the laws
and regulations there established."
Plan New Legislation.
The right to own land for any pur
pose and to lease land for agricul
tural purposes was omitted from the
treaty and the California law pro
hibiting the. ownership and restrict
ing the leasing of. land by aliens not
eligible to citizenship, as are the
Japanese, is not in contravention
thereof. The evasion of this law
through corporations and trustees
for American-born Japanese chil
dren, who are American citizens, the
Californians plan to stop through
additional legislation to be submitted
to a referendum at the November
election. Governor Stephens asserts
that this proposed legislation does
not conflict with the treaty.
' There kis a growing conviction,
however, not confined to the Pacific
coast that sooner or later the "un
fessitnilable race" question must bo
dealt with fundamentally by termi
nating the "gentlemen's agreement'
and excluding by statute aliens not
eligible to citizenshin as well as with
holding citizenship from American
fcprn jchildrea of such aliens Termi-
tiatiwu of the treaty vcoufd"be necesr
sary to effect the first, a constitu
tional amendment the second cf
'..TJie treaty provides that it shall
remain in effect until 1923,. unless
terminated theretofor on six months'
notice by either partyj and will con
tinue in force thereafter until termi
nated inlike manner.
The pronouncement of the candi
dates for president oh, the Japanese
. "With a new realisation of the ne
cessity of developing a soul distinct
ly American in this republic, we fa
vor such modifications of our immi
gration Jaws and such changes in our
international understandings, and
fuch a policy relating to those who
come among us, as will guarantee
to the citizens of this republic not
only assimilability of alien born, but
the adopt'i by all who come of
American standards, economic and
otherwise, and a full consecration to
American practices and ideals."
' ' Cox.
. "God Almighty provided that the
fathers of America should be white
men. They builded the ideals on
which the republic will live. Those
ideals should be maintained. Those
.rom other shores who are not dis
posed to subscribe to that doctrine
have the privilege of , going back
where they came from,"
. In these statements Senator Hard
ing is more specific and definite than
is Governor Cox. The republican
candidate utters a declaration that
can only be interpreted as advocacy
of the termination of the treaty with
Japan and the exclusion of1 the Jap
anese by statute. If Governor Cox
has any definite idea of the policy
he would pursue, if elected, in deal
ing with She question, he carefully
avoided stating it.
The republican platform declares
that "the existing policy of the
United States for the practical exclu
sion of Asiatic immigrants is sound,
and should be maintained. The
democratic platform says that the
policy of the United States,-with ref
erence to the non-admission of Asi
atic immigrants, is a true expression
of the judgment of our people, and
to the several states whose geo
graphical situation or internal con
ditions make this policy and the en
forcement iof the laws enacted pur
suant thereto of particular concern,
we pledge our support."
