PLAN IMPERIALISTIC f"', The Bolshevik plaa is thoroughly imperialistic and seeks the restora tion of the former Russian domain* regardless of the principle of self determination. This charge is brought by Presi dent Gabspa of the Lithuanian Na tional Supreme Council, at Paris for the peace conference, according to diplomatic cables. "Lithuania. Bathonia. the Letton Republic and Ukralnla all oppose the Balskevik idea." declared Gabrys. "The Bolshevlki are the only Rua sians who were given military sup port and arms by the Germans, end now they are in a position to enforce Soviet rule from Moscow and Petro grad on us. Only entente assistance can prevent the complete spread of Bolshevism." WILL HOUSE SEAT - BERBER? IS QUERY: > . ? ?? . ? ? Whether Victor L. Berger, Con gressmsn-elsct from Milwaukee, will be seated as a member of the House wbefc tbe new Congress organlaea. now that he has been convicted of violation of tbe espionage act through conspiracy to obstruct the Govern ment's wsr program, was much dia eassed about tbe Capitol today. The question ia one for the House itself to settle. Under the Constitu tion. each house is sole judge of the qualifications of its own members. Constitutional experts said that the; eonvictlon of Berger did not deter-1 mine one way or another his right to be a member of the House. That' is for the House to pass on. If a j majority of his fellow members say j he is entitled to membership he can i serve. However, in view of the conviction.! It ia generally believed today that ? 4 Berger will not be allowed to s*rve.' A good deal will depend on tbe re-! aulte of the motion for h new trial.] If this should be turned down and' he should be given a penitentiary | sentence. ss could be given under.thel law for auch an ofTense. a majority | of the House would probably refuse' to let him sit.

Chairman Burnett, of the House Immigration Comm ttee today called i hie committee together to try to get I aa agreement on some measures that I will halt a rush to American shores. | expected as eoon as there ie shipping space. I There are two measures before Bur- j nett's committee: One, by Burnett himself, would halt ] Immigration for four years from the j date of passage. The other, by Representative Luf- I kin. Massac buset's. would stop immi-1 gratLon for two years. ' ?' Oaly Four Exceptions. The only exception made in tbe two ? bills are Government officials, ekiiled laborers, refugees from religious per- j secutlons and returning soldiers who I are aliens. All these would be al- ] lowed admission on proof of status. "There is a demand for some check on immigration, and it is coming from quarters which heretofore have fa vored the very lightest restrictions," Burnett said today. "One thing is sure: we cannot allow j an Influx of a million untrained work-i ers a year during our readjustment period. We should allow the people j we have now to get settled back Into normal life before taking In more. "The shortness of manpower abroad may affect the situation some, but not greatly. Foreign governments may make things very attractive for the people they want to keep, and let us have the dregs. "If Congress will recognize the true situation, a bill can be passed before the close of this session." Burnett also pointed out that Immi gration laws passed now would not Interfere with any provisions that might be made in the peace treaty, be cause the treaty being passed last, would override previous legislation. Two powerful forces are working for immigration legislation. Labor wants it to safeguard wages during the period of high prices. The second force Is one that wants to take pre ventive steps against and remote chance of a spread of Bolshevism here. The Immigration Bureau has al ready appealed to Congress for more funds for the coming year, declaring that thousands of prepaid tickets have been purchased In this country for relatives lif Europe.
