... WASHINGTON. June 2 A
proposal to confer on the federal
joTprnment power to determine
and enforce, even as against
states, treaty rights which aliens
la the United States may be siren,-
wa introduced today by Sen
ator Kellogg. Republican. Minne
sota, in the form of a bill framed
by the judiciary committee ot the
American Bar association.
Senator Kellogg said that the
measure was put forward to raise
the Issue and not to apply neces
sarily to any specific situation,
r Power Given President.
Under the bill, the president
would be authorized, where in
als judgment any statute of a
rate or territory contravened
treaty rights of aliens to instruct
the attorney general to take up
the defense of civil or criminal
prosecutions brought by state of
ficials before state courts, and to
secure 'their remoral to federal
courts for trial. -. -
The .federal courts would take
jurisdiction when an act has been
committed against aliens which
would i constitute crimes under
state laws and penalties similar
to those provided in the state
statutes would be imposed in case
of acts .against American citizens.
United 8tates marshals and, if
necessary, army or navy forces
would be available to enforce de
cisions. . '
' Government Now Helpless.
.Under present conditions there
is no law authorising intervention
by the federal government for the
protection of aliens in state pro
ceedings. Senator Kellogg said.
The bill, he added, was Intended
to make clear the rights and du
lies of the. federal government.
The bill was referred to the
fnrelrn nlatlnna onmrnltto f
which Senator Kellogg is a mem
ber. Senator Kellogg did not
cire to comment on the possibil
ity that the measure would apply
to the. Japanese question on the
Fteiflc coast, though the terms
: of the bill apparently would give
tt federal government power to

School District Bond Issue

A contention over the bondin?
for $3500 of the Aurora school
district for the purpose of build

the county court and arranged for
a hearing on th- question before
the court at 2o'elock today.
