Colonel Goethals Repeats Prediction For Panama Job. Parliament Gives In To Workmen Who Walked Out BAD CRIPPLED THE NATION For Ten Days a Half Million Work ers Have Been Out Strikers Maintained an Excellent Organization. Brussels, April 23. The "pollti ' eal strike" in Belgium, after keeping sit standstill the country's industry nd commerce for ten days, was to day brought to a conclusion favor- ble to the workmen, nearly V mil lion of whom, to enforce a demand for equal suffrage, had laid down tools. The Socialist trades union leaders fend their followers gaine)d feheir hief point, which was to make the government take up for considera tlon a change of the Belgium parlia tnentary franchise with its system - -of plural votes1 for the! wealthier and more educated classes; At the last -returns 993,070 men possessed one tote, 395,866 two votes and 808,683 three votes, so that the single votes were always overwhelmed. This is the first oc casion on record in which a politi cal strike has resulted In victory for the strikers. The whole move ment has been notable for the energy and determination displayed and for the excellent control shown by the men. They have not yet obtained their i full demand, but the Socialist lead ers express confidence that the con sideration of their claims will re sult in the franchise being made equal -for all. When the chamber of deputies met today the conciliatory motion of F. MaBson, the Liberal leader, was taken up Immediately. Deputy Lle fcaert, a Clerical, proposed an addi tional clause reading: ' "The chamber disapproves and condemns the general strike." , Premier de Brouqueville accepted the motion as amended and asked the other members of his party not to suggest any more changes. The Socialist leader, Emlle Van flevelde, then said. "We, the depu ties of the left, support M. Masson' motion for a compromise. It re- Washington, April 23. Colonel Goethals, chief engineer of the Pan ama canal, In a report to the war department today reiterated the hope that he would pass a ship through 'the canal before the close of the present year. The statement came In response to an Inquiry from Secretary Garri son as to whether it would be possi ble to grant the request of Captain Amundsen, the explorer, that he be allowed to take bis" ship, Fram, through the canal when he starts for the Antarctic regions from the west coast of South America next winter. Colonel Goethals said: "The opening of the Panama canal for the passage of vessels has al ways been predicated on the ques tion of slides and the completion of the lock gates. The present sche dule contemplates admitting the water Into Culebra cut early In Oc tober and the completion of one flight of locks at either end of the canal at that date. The passage of boats depends upon the condition of the slides. It is hoped that we will be able to pass a ship before the close of the year and if this can be accomplished the Fram will have no difficulty In making the transit of the canal and every facility will be offered for its doing so. No assur ance, however, can be given in the matter at this time." WILSON'S APPEAL TO PACIFY JAPS President PleadN With California Not to Break Treaty. PROFESSOR TAFT HITS COURTS.

Through the exchanges of telegrams today between President Wilson and Governor Johnson, the settled policy of the California administration on the question of alien land owner ship, as agreed upon last Sunday, was officially made known. Governor Johnson and his party leaders in the senate favor a bill excluding from land ownership in the state all aliens ineligible to cit izenship under the laws of the Unit ed States. Such a law probably will be passed, In spite of the objections from Washington, it was said to day. The assertion is made by the gov ernor that a state law of this na ture would not be in contravention of any existing treaty. He Is up held in this view by the majority leaders in the senate, who met with him today and agreed upon the form of the telegraphic reply to Presi dent Wilson's message sent today, Opposition to the administration programme will comet from the Democrats, aided by a few Republi cans who are opposed to anti-alien legislation of any kind The Democrats will seek to strike out the words "ineligible to citizen ship" In any bill considered and on this point the real fight on the mea sure will be raged. r It is not expected that the Thomp- pared to recommend a series of son-Birdsall bill will not be reached woria-wiae treaties ior tne suomia- Bome tjme Thursday and no action slon of all disputes to arbitration i Can be taken until that time. mains for us to convoke a Socialist ' congress, which" alone has the power to decide whether the strike shall .end or not, but we have the con Tlction that the adoption of the -motion will be a step In advance.

Characterizing existing conditions in the courts of America as a disgrace to civilization and declaring that remedial legislation is necessary lm7 mediately, former President Taft addressed the Yale law school stu dents and faculty at their annual banquet. He said: "I have had the feeling that some day the Socialists might direct their attacks on the unequal and unjust administration of the law. The fail ure to administer criminal law with certainty, the failure to apply the law, aids those criminals who so often escape punishment for crimes of which they deserve imprisonment. "The existing condition of things in this regard is a disgrace to the civilization of this county and should be remedied. There are none bet ter to accomplish these reforms than the members of the bar. In the civil courts there are many and frequent delays in the application of the law by which the wealthy liti gants gain an advantage. This can not be said to be an equal adminis tration of justice. This Is not be cause the judges are unfair or be cause they do not know the law, It is simply because we have gone on without the remedial spirit. Ev ery effort should be made to re move the defects that now exist, Something should be done to reduce the cost of litigation. The court room is no place to gamble with the law. We must keep law and Jus tice together In order to Justify law." CHASE CRIMINALS ON MOTORCYCLES State-Wide Patrol in Kansas to Be a Reality.

A freak mathematician at the University of Kansas has figured out the expenses of a student and has estimated that It hits father's bank account about $1 per class. If the student is spend ing $500 a year at the university and is taking fifteen hours' work per week, it costs him a round dollar for every fifty-minute class he at tends. It coats $85 to take a five- hour course, and if the student flunks and has to take it over again it means that he will have to spend 170 to get the five hours' credit. Some of the students that are tak ing American government the third term may be surprised to learn that Congress has the power to lay and collect taxes, duties. Imposts and excises."
