Plan to Mayor Mltohel.
The flve members of the Metropolitan
8awerage Commission put their resigna

a new commission bo appointed to build
a new sewerage system for the city of

The members of the commission are
George A. So per, James II. Kuertes, It.

gate the sewer conditions of New York
and to make a comprehensive report on
what should be done to preserve the
waters around New York from pollution.
They have made a dozen exhaustive re
ports, and expect to havo tho last In the
hands of the Mayor by April 30, when
their resignations will become effective,
Tho plan, as It has been described In
the reports of the commission from time

Wasiiinutok, Jan. 23. Secretary of
Labor Wilson suggested to-day In a Utter
to Speaker t'l.irk that a provision for the
exclusion of aliens unable to pass the
physical test required of recruit for the
United States army might solve the prob
lem of Asiatic Immigration.
The Secretary's suggestion has no direct
bearing upon tho situation growing out
of tho Japanese alien land law contro
versy, because he recommends specifically
that there he Incorporated In thu law- an
exception with regard to "existing agree
ments as to pa.sports." This exception
Is considered necessary because of the
"gentleman's agreement" existing be
tween this Government and Japan for
the regulation of immigration of Japanese

Secretary Wilson discussed his plan
with State Department ottlclals before
communicating It to Speaker Clark. Tho
ottlclals assured him that they did
not believe that treaty rights of foreign
Governments would be contravened by
tho legislation he proposed. The Secre

the plan either with the l'resldent or the
Mr. Wilson's letter was transmitted by
Speaker Clark to the House Committee
In It the Secretary dwells upon the
undeslrablllty of the Hindu, and ex
presses the belief that the time has come
for final dealing with the Asiatic ques

"Judging from past experience and tho
Inroads already made. It would seem to be
only a question of time before the United
States Immigration officials will bn con

from countries other than China, Japan
or India, In view of which It Is, In the De
