WASHINGTON, Fob. IB. Not fur

possible such rettrlctlon as the ox

coniplUhcd, It the object of a proposed
new Imnilgratloh law recommended by
Daniel ' J, 'Keofe, the Commissioner
Goneral of Immigration, In his annual
report for'the"IUcl year 1909. It It
proposed to accomplish this' by codify

strengthening at their weak points all
existing laws on the general subject
of Immigration and Chinese exclus
ion. 8omo of the principal suggestions
60 defining the term' "alien" as to
leave ifo doubt that It Includes all
persons not citizens; extending the
.contract labor provisions to forbid
and penallzo the Inducement of Immi
gration' by false as well as-genuine
promUes of employment, penalizing an
attempt to Import foreign laborers,
and permitting the. Importation of

Mr. Kecfe believes the time Is ripe
for the adoption ofotun stricter mea
sures anil suggests ttrnt a proposal
worthy of careful thouBht Is that all

' There bas been a material reduc

Japanese' were admitted to continental
United States and 8694 to Hawaii,
while' for '1909 the corresponding fig
ures are 2432 and 1493. The number
admitted to the mainland and Ha
waii was only about 25 per cent, and
17'tpe cent., respectively, of the num
bers for 1908."

are ' or soon become laborers and
