Washington, Sept. 23.—New legisla tion restricting immigration almost to the point of exclusion was outlined to day by Representative Johnson of Washington, chairman of the House Immigration Committee, in a state ment of plans for the next session. He suggested many changes in the existing law, which he will endeavor to have Congress approve at the next session. He expressed the opinion ^ that the country “seems to want com- 1 plete suspension of immigration," but > contended this was impracticable. Proposed Changes. Measures urged by Mr. Johnson for | tightening up the present law includ ed the following: ; "Reduce the percentage figure to 2 ! per cent of even to 1 1-2 per cent, ^ thus lowering the total number of ad missibles from countries entitled to large quotas. “Give all countries which have sep arate governments or parliaments which act independently of the parent government, base quotas of about G0 > each annually, cutting down other ex emptions a^ far as possible. “Treat immediate families as units, admitting the husband, wife or child ren of citizens of the United States and aliens permanently domiciled here. “Perfect the illiteracy test by pro viding authority for the exclusion of the mentally inferior and the emotion ally unstable classes. “Provide for more thorough physical examination of immigrants by au thorizing the modern blood test, a simple yet effective step, which will exclude .aliens afflicted with diseases otherwise not readily detected. “Apply the quota law to alien sea men who intend to leave ship and re main in the United States. “Admit certain exempted classes, such as students, actors and members of certain professions, or temporary stay only. “Limit all immigration to persons eligible to citizenship, once and for all time disposing of difficulties which have arisen by reason of the heavy colonization of our Pacific slope of unassimilable alien races." >otice to Tax Payers.

The Turkish nationalists, accord- j ing to these reports, will demand that their army he permitted to enter Thrace immediately. They also refuse to accept the al lied proposal that the League of Na t’ons he given control of the Darda- j nolles and the Bosphorus, the advices | slated. j There was a distinct feeling that j Kemal, the leader of the victorious j nationalists, would accept the allied plan which allows the Turks to come hack into Europe, giving them their capital, Constantinople, Mid restoring to them Eastern Thrace as far as the Maritza River. It was hoped that an answer to j the allied proposals, which also in vites Kemal 10 attend a Near East peace conference, presumable to he held in October, would he received j by the end of the week. Franklin , Bouillion, French Near East expert, has left Paris and is due to confer with Kemal on Friday, it was.stated. Humors Are •’ In Flames Very That Constantinople Is —Peace in Europe v Fncert a in. It was reported here that Kemai | objected to the peace parley invita tion because Bulgaria and Russia | were not included in the call, was believed that Bouillon, who is . said to have the confidence of the! Turkish leader, will lie able to per- | suade Kemai to accept the terms, which it was pointed out, include, almost the entire list of demands made on the allies by Kemai. Word which seeped through here form the Near East said that Kemai was having a hard time to hold his forces in check. Some credence is placed in this by diplomats here. “I think the peace conference will be held within a month,” said ^ the Servian minister, “but can the Kem alist troops he restrained that long.” The minister denied that Jugo slavs were mobolizing. Serbia, he said, is most satisfied with allied terms but wishes some guarantees since “I am officially informed that the Tujrfes are sending arms into Bulgaria.” Constantinople, Sept. 25 - -A fire is raging in Upper Pera street, a main thoroughfare of the capital.

It gives him, at a price lower than the net price he is asked to pay for many “long discount’* tires, every advantage of quality cord tire performance, for it is a quality tire through and through. It is made of high-grade long-staple cotton; it embodies the reliable Goodyear quality of materials; its clean-cut tread engages the road like a cogwheel. The scientific distribution of rubber in this tread—the wide center rib and the semi-flat contour—gives a thick, broad surface that is exceedingly slow to wear. The tough tread stock in this tire is carried down the side walls clear to the bead, making it rut-proof to an extraor dinary degree. In every particular it is a representative Goodyear product, built to safeguard the world-wide Goodyear reputation. Despite its high quality, and the expertness-of its construc tion, it sells at a price as low or lower than that of tires which lack its important features.
