San Francisco, Oct. 28. The his

Japanese the right to lease agricul

ponents first sought its enactment
by the Californ ia- legislature, . asking
that a special session, be called. This
the governor declined, announcing
that he nad received a, cablegram
from Secretary of State Lansing,

fear that such legislation would seri

negotiation of the peace treaty.
Proponents of the measure, how
ever, merely marked time, for a
month or two later we find them
again urging the governor to con

Again the governor declined, giv
ing as a further reason that the
matter was of such tremendous im
portance that any consideration of
it should be thoroughly i divorced
from politics and preceded by the
fullest and fairest investigation,
which investigation he had ordered
the state board of control to make.
Governor Remains Firm.

criticism from various' anti-Japanese
leaders, the governor adhered Xo his

Demanded of Cox
Hughes Calls on Governor to
Article X Would Im- !

By Tbe Auoclated From.
Indianapolis, Ind., Oct. 28. A de
mand that Governor Cox "frankly
repudiate the obligation which
Article X of the league of , nations
would impose upon the United
States" was made in an address here
today before the Columbia club by
Charts Evans Hughes. x '
The speaker, after, a detailed an
alysis of the article, declared it
would obligate the United States to
"underwrite the territorial delimita
tions of - the Versailles treaty,
whether good or bad." He said
there was no necessity for "clarify
ing" the article, as proposed by the
democratic presidential candidate.
"The only thing that will reassure
the American people is to eliminate
it," said Mr. Hughes.
"In case of future conflict," the
speaker continued J "whatever may
be our opinion til its merits, and
however removed lit may be from
any interest of ours, we are bound
to go to war if necessary to pre
serve as against external aggression,
territorial possessions recognized
under the treaty. The objection to
this is that it does sacrifice our in
dependence of judgment. It com
mits us in advance to act iu un
The speaker cited the democratic
platform and Governor Cox's con
ference 'with President Wilson soon
after his nomination, in an effort to
show that the president and Gover
nor Knox stood together on Arti
cle X. . , ,
"Governor CoV now says, that he
is willing to Acept reservations that
will clarify, or will be helpful, that
will reassure the American people,"
said Mr. Hughes. "Does the can
didate expect to scap , with such
banalities? What will 'clarify,' 'help,'
'or 'reassure?' '
"There is no necessity to 'clarify
if the obligation is retained, and the
one thing that will 'help' or 'reas
sure' is to eliminate the obligation.
Will Mr. Cox do that? Not by try
ing to 'reassure' and retaining Ar
ticle X at the same, time, but will he
frankly repudiate the obligation
which this article seeks to impose?"
- Mr. Hughes asserted that America
desires 'an association of nations"
which would dispose of contro
versies "according to law and not ex
pediency." Harding Wins in Straw
