The Japanese Menace in the West

Senator James D. Phelan has telegraphed Governor Stephens of California suggesting a special session of the legislature of California to take up the question of the ratification of the federal amendment for woman suffrage.

Senator Phelan advised that these three phases of the land laws of California be considered by the legislature at the extra session:

3 - Evils of the "picture bride" marriage custom of the Japanese.

A Toast to the Unknown One

Here is a toast that I want to drink to a fellow I'll never know -
To the fellow who's going to take my place, when it's time for me to go.

Just to whisper, "I wish you well, old man," in a way that he'd understand.
