Washington, Feb. 1.—A member ot
ihe California delegation said:
■*Aa nearly as I ran recollect, this le
the eubetajice of the language ueed by
ihe preeldent at the conference with
the Callfornlana on the Japanese quea.
(Ion: -—^ - :
'"We must act immediately In re.
moving all causes of friction between
the United States and Japan. The San
Francisco school question must be dis
posed of. If possible, without waiting
for the decision of ths courts. Foreign
Minister Hayashl declares that If the
courts decide unfavorably, the anti-
Japanese movement In California will
be considered to represent the opinion
of the whole United States, and that

‘"The bassoon player, whose tune Is

would not amount to much, hut we are
dealing With a nation of proud and

without warning. We must do all we
can to remove any possible cause of
war. If trouble comes. It must not be
our fault. We must avoid a rupture
If any plan of diplomacy can do It."'
A Western senator, with whom the
California senators are In close con
fidence, confirmed the statements of
members of the California delegation.
Can Afford to Treat.
"On any question not touching our
honor," he said, "we will doubtless be
willing to abide by the decision of The
Hague tribunal. It has been suggested
that If the ‘United fitatee and Japan
can not settle their differences other
wise, the matter shnutd be referred to
The Hague. The administration Is
greatly concerned over this Japanese
situation. It has ugly features, which
I do not care to discuss.,. But the re
sources of dtptomary are great, and this
great nation can afford to take a most
advanced position of forbearance and
"One of the disquieting factors of
the situation is the belief In certain
quarters that Japan has been encour
aged by another nation to assume an
ugly position. Ths president, 1 under
stood, told the California delegation
that Japan's financial resources were
underrated. He gave them the Im
pression that he had Information which
he was not at liberty to divulge. This
sidelight on the situation, with certain
other sinister matters. Induces me to
believe that expedition and tact must
be employed In order to avoid serious
Taft Fears Troubla.
This senator was asked whether tie
attached any Importance. ln_BecWsry--
Taft's Intimation that trouble was
brewing In Hawaii as the result of In
creased Immigration of Japanese ex-
soldiers. He neplted:
“All I know about the matter la what
Secretary Taft told me. He said ths
situation, hs said, and caused
regard tbs Japanese question as se
rious. He did not go Into details,
merely adding that an Investigation
waa In pragma."

PROPOSED TO WORK
It appears that Mrs. W. W. Donoghy
does not play favorites when It cornea
to selecting Institutions or charities
under whose auspices she Intends to
Industrial homes. Woman's Christian-
Temperance Union organisations,
church building -propositions, missions
and woman suffrage societies ora an
her list. In fact, It was for tha latter
class of organisation that Mrs. Do-
naghy desired to get money for when
she approached Mrs. Mary L. McLen
don eom time ago.
Mrs. McLendon Is also president ot
the Atlanta Willard Woman's Christian
Temperance Union, but It was not for
this organisation that Mrs. Donaghy
wished lo work. Hhe wanted to gtva
an entertainment In the opera house for
the Atlanta Woman's Suffrage Associa
tion and suggested having Mies Fannie
