The senate added 11 products,
inost of them of minor importance.
The great confh'ct has !feen over the
rate of wheat and sugar, the house
conferees considering the rate on
wheat fixed bv the senate as alto

having sugar included in the bill
but for the sake of agreement have
offered to accpt the rate of the
Payne bill on sugar.

believed, would not be in - force

revision could be framed.
After an all-day s s-ion the con

Foreign Minister. Declares
California Is Acting With
in State Constitution,
Also That of U. S. .
Tokio, Feb. 2A. (By the Associa
ted Press) Japan can do nothing to
invalidate anti-Japanese legislation
in California, declared Viscount
Uchida, foreign minister, in the Diet
".California's legislation," he said,
"is injurious to Japanese interests,
but that state has been acting within
her constitution, and also that of
the United States."
The foreign minister spoke in re
ply to Baron Yoshiro Sakatani, who,
after referring to a growing tend
ency in other Pacific cosat states to
follow the example of California,
asked if the Japanese government
was doing anything to counteract
this movement. He also inquired
if there were prospects that the ac
cord being negotiated by Roland S.
Morris, American ambassador to
Japan, and Viscount Shidehara, Jap
anese ambassador at Washington,
might be ratified soon.
M. Uchida said an agreement of a
nature advantageous to -Japan was
being arranged by Mr. Morris and
M. Shidehara and that a satisfac
tory solution might be expected, al
though it was doubtful whether def
inite steps would he take"rr during

In Cold Storage
Bill Js Killed
McLaughlin Wages Successful
Fight in House Fur liter
Conference Is Now
By E. C. SNYDER.
Wellington CorrfRPomleut -Oiiinhn flee
Washington, Feb. 24. (Special
Telegram.) The "10 day provision"
in Jhe cold storage bill which has
been having rough hlcdding ever
since the conferees agrerd to the
clause which would compel shippers
to brand the:r shipments "cold stor
age," even though tliese shipments
arc made in refrigerator cars or in
!hc holds of vessels, where the tem
perature is maintained at or below
45 degrees above zero, was com
pletely knocked out yesterday by the
house on a rising vote of to 51,
Congressman Evans being the only
Nebraskan to vote in the negative.
Congressman McLaughlin, a mem
ber of the agricultural committee,
fhile in favor of branding food in
i old storage and a champion of the
bill as it originally passed the
house, could nut stand for the pro
visions as agreed to by the con
forces and he said so during the
course of the debate on the con
ference report. He said that the pro
vision as agreed upon in conference
would work both to t tie detriment
of the producers and the consumers.
Knowing that the conference re
port on the cold storage bill would
be taken up by the house at an
early day Mr. McLaughlin got the
consent of Speaker Gillclt to offer
an amendment striking out of the
definition of the term "warehouses,"
the words "including a car, vessel,
or other vehicle." In the mean
time, however, the senate acted on
the conference report which pre
sented a parliamentary status pre
cluding the offering of the motion to
recommit. When the situation be
came known, there was nothing left
for the house to do but to disagree
with tM conference report and ask
for a further conference on the ob
noxious clause, f
Mr. McLaughlin in the course of
his rem-ks stated that he was in
favor ol cold storage legislation,
having been much interested in the
preparation of the bill which orig
inally passed the house, but that the
10-day provision included in the
conference report would make it
necessary for shippers of produce in
the west to label their products
"cold storage" before shipment was
made to New York and other east
ern terminals, . because in many
cases the goods would be in transit
10 days or 'more.
