Paris, Marchl6. Belgium's colonial
policy after the war and the fate of
the Belgian Congo after peace has
teen concluded, was the subject of an
address delivered at the Sorbonne
yesterday by Mr. Rankin, the Belgian
iMinister o Colonies.
"There has been much talk lately,"
said Mr. Rankin, "of the fate of Cen
tral Africa. It seems to me that the
fate of that territory has been settled
for a long time, as far as that part
of it which is not German possessions
is concerned. As to the fate of the
German colonies, It Is not for me,
either to suggest or to advise."
"There has been a question raised
lately as to the internationalization of
the basin of Central Africa or If not
complete internationalization, at
least the establishment of an interna
tional control for thn nrntopMnn nt
the natives. Those are generous ideaa
perhaps but wholly impracticable.

Mr. Renkin expressed the opinion
that np policy could be adopted that
would deprive Belgium of Its absolute
sovereignty in the Congo. He said:
"S-mall and modest as Belgium finds
itself, now, it has conscience of hav

the deeds In conformity with honor

LANE'S COLLECTION PAINTINGS
(By Associated Press.)
Dublin, March 16. The claim to the
'ate Sir Hugh Lane's collection ot
paintings, which are now stored in
London, has again broken out in acute
form between the Dublin and London
art galleries. Dublin art lovers, under
the leadership of Lady Gregory and
W. B. Yeats, the Irish writer, have
just petitioned the British Parliament
to pass a special bill awarding the
painting to Dublin.
Sir Hugh was an Irishman. In hla
will he bequeathed an Important part
of the pictures to the National Gal
lery In London. In 1915 he signed a
codicil leaving the pictures to Dublin,
but the codicil was never witnessed
and on the return voyage he went
