Would Prefer to Have Its Protest

Issues between the United States aud
It had been assumed hero that be

sentiment In California In favor of
Japanese exclusion from land owning
there might be difficulty In securing
the 20,000 signatures necessary to in

Now, however, that tho exclusion

league has taken up tho movement,
the probabilities of its success havo
greatly increased in the official judg
ment Tho Japanese government is not ex
pected to approve that method of deal
ing with its protest, though probably
It will bo dlfflcult for tho Tokyo for
eign office to find technical grounds for
objection to the method in which Cali
fornia is attempting to legislate.
Officials here feel that Japan regards
tho present ns tho best time perma
nently to settle the question and that
it will contemplate with Impatience a
-delay of at least a year and a half,
even though In tho interval the propos
ed law were not applied to the Japa
nese in California.

The Asiatic Exclusion league of Cal

based on tho clause in tho Webb act

There is a reason for the pheno

FIGHT HAS BEGUN
Governor Sulzer Declares That
Conventions Must Go.
STRONG REASONS, HE SAYS
Soores Alleged Secret Alliances Be
tween Special Priviloge and Crooked
Politics Assorts People Cannot Rule
Until They Obtain a Successful Meth
od of Nominating.
Buffalo, N. Y., May 10. In plain and
forceful language characteristic of tho
man, Governor Sulzer told tho peoplo
of Buffalo and many citizens of tho
surrounding towns who came hero to
hear him spunk why he is wnglng In
behulf of tho peoplo of tho state a
warfare for the elimination of boss
ruin from party politics. "Political
conventions must go. Disgraceful se
cret alliances between special privi
lege and crooked politics must cease.
That Is all there Is to It!" exclaimed
the governor, In righteous wrath, as
ho explained how the powers of gov
ernment are subverted through mach
inations .at such conventions.
Governor Sulzer declared his convic
tion that every member of tho legisla
ture is solemnly bound In honor to vote
for the direct primaries. The governor
called attention to tho fact that tho di
rect primary bill Is not a partisan
measure, but one for which thcro is
urgent demand all over tho state.
"Wo havo been given party tickets
which reflect disgraceful secret alli
ances between big business intorosts
and corrupt politics. It must ccaso or
our free Institutions are doomed," said
Governor Sulzer in conclusion. He
said in part:
Governor Sulzer's Speech.
"It Is self evident to mo that if tho
people are competent to directly elect
their public ofllcinls they are also com
petent to directly nominato these offi
cials; tha't if it Is Important for minor
officers to be nominated by the peo
ple it Is still more important that tho
people bo given tho power to nominate
candidates for United States senator
and for governor; that If public sorvico
corporations and special interests seek
to control public affairs for the promo
tion of their selfish ends through tho
manipulation of party conventions the
plain people should seek to do the same
thing by taking in their own hands tho
right to nominate directly these impor
"The truth is that the delegate sys
tem of nominating officers hns com
pletely broken down and proved itself
not only inadequate to carry out tho
wishes of tho people, but It has be
come an instrumentality through which
tho powers of government nro prosti
tuted and hrought under tho dominion
of unscrupulous men seeking special
Appoafs to the People.
"In this campaign for direct prima
ries I am appealing now directly to tho
people, and they are responding as they
always will respond when their rights
aro Jeopardized and their liberties aro
subverted, and they hear tho call of
duty and see tho opportunity to assert
offoctually their inheront power and
"Every duy I see accumulating evi
dence of tho truth, which I stated In
my recent direct primary message to
the legislature, that those who would
subvert the powers of government to
personal advantage and to special priv
ilege And their greatest opportunities
to carry on this nefarious work through
the skillful manipulations of political
"Political conventions must go. Dis
graceful secret alliances between spe
cial privilege and crooked politics must
cease. That Is all there Is to It
"The spirit of truo democracy Is sum
med up in tho slogan 'Lot the peoplo
rule.' They cannot ralo until they ob
tain a successful method of nominating
candidates of political parties.
"New York state Is ono of tho last
states in tho Union to capitulate to tho
present day demand for popular rulo
in tho nomination of candidates for
all public offices. It is bound to come
in New York. The fight Is on, and tho
pcopn are in earnest."

A Few Ilonest Pointers
In Regard to Paint.
When you go into a, Btoro and ask
for paint don't bo misled if tho pro
prietor or tho clerk begins to sell you
paint by weight. Don't bo fooled bo
cause tho greatest weight does not
always mean tho greatest value, for,
Instanco, grcon and dark colored
paint do not carry as much whlto
lead, as white and light colored
paints, therefore, if your dealer
weighs up a gallon of his competi
tor's paint, say green or some dark
colored paint, surely It will not weigh
as much as a gallon of his whlto
paint. Then again there is a way of
making a gallon of paint weigh
heavy without much cost, but we
hope no dealer In Honesdale sells
this kind; a paint that is adulterated
with Barytes, which costs about ?20
per ton while pure whlto lead is
worth about ?160 per ton, but the
Barytes has very little if any cover
ing capacity, although it is heavy and
very white. These aro only a few
facts that everybody should know. If
you want an absolutely guaranteed
paint a paint that one gallon will
cover 300 square feet, two coats
and a paint that will be cheap in the
long run, you win surely make no
mistake if you buy DEVOE. Erk
iiros. are agents at Honesdale, Pa.
