During the brief debate Mr. Fitz?.

persons who are abroad at this time,"
said Mr. Fitzgerald. "With Ulis great
conflict about to be waged anvung most
of the powers of Furope, the presence
of large numbers of American aliens in
the countries engaged in war is a con?
stant menace to the peace and policy of

advisable and desirable and notice i',
t.. be issued to that effect that Amer?
