i Inder existing: laws there 'is no
J authority for the United States to

t dared that up to the present time
j this caused no trouble because ship

"Another serious defect in the ex
tstintr law is that in all probability,
ii permits only the requisitioning
of the bare physical posession of
the ship." Chairman Hurley stated.
"It does not authorize requisitioning
the services of the ship owners' or

i- almost necessary to do the latter.
The legislation proposed does not. of

MEXICAN PAPER WARNS
CARRANZA TO LINE
UP WITH THE ALLIES
I ii forii.i t i'n 1 1 News Servbe:
XAX ANTONIO. Tex., April L'O.
A strong1 plea for Pre.s't Carranza to
nlign hirmdf with the allies is made
today in an article in La Defensa. a
Mexican newspaper, reflecting' opin
ron alon the border. The article
says:
"Mexico is facing a tragic moment
by condoning (ierman propaganda
and in event some action Is not im
mediately taken, war with America
v.-ill result and Mexico will become
another martyred Helgium. Neutral
ity as it is understood in Mexico
means 'pro-Germanism.'
"In event of war Mexico has noth
ing to expect from Germany, but
alignment with America will mean
money, arms, munitions, active co
operation of the l'nited States and
might be the difference between
Mexico's, salvation and her destruc
tion." i Defensa is published by T. H.

KIux Klans will be organized and
that anarchy will ensue in. some sec

Nevertheless, canvas today showed
that the majority of congress is still
unwilling to take the prosecution of
espionage and disloyalty out of the
hands of the department of justice

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.. Aonl 20. i
With Hut'. Goodrich removing, one j

j a special ssion of the legislature, j
the belief grew at the state house I
today that no extraordinary meet-
I ing of t'm law -makers will he held. 1
Kemovrl of 20o inmates of the j

Michigan City prison, where they j
h-.i-. c been put to work in the tw ine j
factory; employment of other pris- i
oners at the state forestry reserve, 1
and distribution of still others to i
the state farm at Putnamville is ac- ;
conted as a solution of the chief !
ptoblem to have been placed before
the proposed special session. This
would eliminate the immediate
ne'jssity cf rebuilding of the re
formatory, recently destroed by;
lire. j
Ix"gaIio IliH.'ii(lituivi.
Arrangements for partially legiliz- j
ing expenditures by county councils j
i f defense through a "war emer- i
jency opinion handed down by
the attorney general removes an
other reason for the special session i .
the tinancing of war measures in
the state. Fulton county already has
appropriated $".000 through its
countv council. i
Itatitication of the prohibition
amendment, one of the other meas
ures tentatively proposed for con
sideration by the legislature, is con
s'dered of secondary importance and
other reasons cited by the governor
it his proposal to call a special ses
sion, are more or less related to the
chief problems for which solution
has been found. This, it was the be
lief at the state house, leaves n i
vital reason for tailing a special
legislative session.
