LINCOLN, April II. (Special.) Sixty
nine days of the session of this incompe
tent legislature have passed, und If any
bill lias been enacted into law In which
the stute Is Interested or cares anything
about the records do not disclose It.
Those who have been watching the an
tics of this nondescript collection of re
pUDllcans, democrats, bull moosers and
whatnots are laughing over thlg para-
Wo promise the faithful performance of
the anti-lobby law to tho end that such
law shall no longer bo a dead letter upon
tho statute book.
If ever a legislation invited a lobby
and encouraged a lobby this thirty-third
session has. Tho democratic house started
out by resolutlng thai no lobbyist must
eomo near. Of course this wus merely an
invitation for tho representatives of spe
cial Interests to call, and they called.
Wcn there was barely room left In the
house for the members another resolu
tion wus parsed to the effect that no lob
byist could stand behind tho ratling In
the lobby of tho house. After this vir
tuous performance the chief clerk was In
structed to present to tho sergeant-at-arms
a list of all lobbyists so he could
keep them out.
It wus pointed out to tho members that
Nebraska hail an anti-lobby law which
if enforced would free them from t!o
lobby, but there wos not a reformer, fake
or otherwise, who voted for the various
resolutions who had the nerve to drag a
lobbyist before the bw of the house to
Kven when a lobbyist smashed the tar
out of one of the members in the house
chamber these law makers put over an
attempt to punish him until the next
Ftsnlon, when It is very probable a nevi
bunch will compose tho house. That's
how the democrat: majority In the house

Another plank tn the democratic ut
form reads this way:
"We favor the adoption of a proposed

of more than 5.00 population the privilege

At the first opportunity the representa

that, in that they took from Omaha and

Another pledge Is this:

This promise could certainly bo consid

TOKIO, April H. The Japanese cabinet
reported to the emperor today that Presi
dent Woodrow Wilson's decision not to
Interfere with the Callfornlan land owner
situation, makes It necessary for Japan
to present a test case before the supreme
court of the United States, proving that '
Japanese nro not of Mongolian origin
and therefore entitled to citizenship In
the United States.
Tho members of the Toklo Chamber of
Commerce are expressing high apprecia
tion of a message from the San Francisco
Chamber of Commerce announcing that
the two bodies will combine forces In
opposing tho land bill pending tn the
California legislature which would pre
vent aliens from owning property.
Many organizations here continue con
ferences on the situation. A Joint meet
ing of tho American and Japanese peace
societies has been arranged for today
and tomorrow for the purpose of pre
senting their views. The Japan-American
society, whose leadership is composed en
tirely of Japanese and many other bodies,
are organizing In opposition to the bill.
WASHINGTON. April 11. The general
opinion in official circles Is the adminis
tration wolld welcome a test In the su
preme court In the question of eligibility
of Japanese to naturalization. So far, all
dectslons of record, In western courts,
hayo held that the Japanese were not
eligible to naturalization, not being such
whlto persons nor persons of African
descent as arc mentioned In naturaliza
tion laws as being alone eligible to ad
mission to citizenship. The issue has
never been tested before the supreme
court of the United States In a direct
The Japanese contend they are Malayan
and Aryan In lineage and consequenttly
may fairly claim to be classified ethno
loglcally as the white persons described
In the naturalization act. The Importance
of determination of tho question and Its
relationship to the alien land legislation
now pending, lies In the fact that, as that
act now stands before the legislature
any alien entitled to apply for naturaliza
tion may own and lease land tn the state,
no that a decision favorable to the Jap
anese contention would completely de
feat tho purpose of tho legislation so far
as it might be aimed at the Japanese.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., April 14. A pro
test direct from Japan against an alien
land bill that would affect the rights of
Japanese subjects In California was read
today In the state senate. It was a cable

papers of Osaka and read as follows:

BRUSSELS, April ll.-Tho vast politi
cal strike planned by the Helgtan social
ist trade unions began at dawn today.
The first workmen to take part In the
movement were the night' shifts of the
mines and mills throughout the country.
They left the various plants In charge
of a few caretakers, named by the social
ist leaders to keep the property from de
teriorating. At least 150,000 men laid dowr. their
tools during the morning. There were
numerous exceptions to the general walk
out tn many districts, however. The
strike Is complete In such places as the
mining districts, but is scarcely discerni
ble In some localities.
In Rrusscls. Itself, the strike must be
looked for in order to be found. Prob
ably one-fourth of the workmen engaged
in the suburban factories did not report
for work today. The socialist committee
here estimated at 11 o'clock that 20,000
men had struck In the capital.
Reports from tho provinces tell of com

work at Liege, Charlol, Mons, La Lou

are 40,000 strikers', and at La Louvlere

Sundry Civil Bill
With Union Labor
WASHINGTON. April 14. Providing
that a ocrtain $300,000 of Its total shall
not be usei for Sherman law prosecutions
of farmers' co-operative organizations or
labor unions, the sundry civil appropria
tion bill was reintroduced today on the.
floor of the house. Former President
Taft vetoed the bill In the last hours
of his office because of that provision.
age of tho bill in the same form as Mr.
Taft vetoed it.
President Wilson does not favor at
taching general legislation to appropria
tion bills, but he does not regard the
particular provision to which objection
was made as one that establishes & rule
of future law with respect to labor unions
or farmers' organlzattns.
Ho looks on If as did many members of
congress, as a provision effective only
during the life of the bill and not as af
fecting substantive law.
The whole question of whether labor
unions may be proseouted for operations
alleged to be In restraint of trade, un
der the Sherman law, Is likely to be taken
up when a revision of the anti-trust law
Is formally recommended by the presi
dent, and until the point is definitely de
termined, It Is said that Mr. Wilson does
not believe such a provision could be re
garded as class legislation.
Tho plan is to pass the bill and also the
Indian appropriation bill, which failed of
passage In the closing hours of the last
congress, and which has been reintro
duced by a special rule to expedite pass
age. Dr, Friedmann Treats
