not be it candidate In 1912 myself, and
that I had no Intention of taking any

Tho other, wilttcn Aug. IS, to A. P.

Hull clin leaders will recall that,
in the year 1907, I'ougicss passed an
Act creating an Immigration Commis
sion. The net empowered tho Vice
President to appoint threo distin
guished Senators, the Speaker of the
House three members of the House,
nniV the President the power to ap
point tluee distinguished publicists,
thus constituting a Commission of
nine members. The function of this
Commission vvns to examine Into the
whole subject of Immigration Into the
t'nlled States The Commission was
to report to Congress on the xnrlous
effects of immigrants on the unlive
Americans as to vice, crime, diseases,
economic effects, standard of living,
and Ideals The Commission recently
made n report, nml Congress embodied
It In forty volumes.
Professor Jcnks, the distinguished
publicist of Cornell University, chair
man of the three publicists, has con
densed the substance of the forty xol
umcs Into one oelnxo volume of some
eight hundred pages. The findings of
tho Commission are numerous. This
hook Is well worth tho perusal of all
Americans who lia'o the present and
future welfare of their country at
heart. It Is dllllrult, een Impossible,
to glc anything like a resume ot the
findings of the Commission In one
brief newspaper article. We shall,
therefore, endeaxor to touch upon only
three or four of tho most Important
First, as to the effect thnt the Im
migrants lime on the xlces of Amer
icans. Second, ns to the ptobahlc In
creaso of crime, caused by the new
Immigration. Third, as to the eco
nomic effectx, standards of living and
Ideals on the American population.
The Commission Is of tho opinion
thnt the Immigrants have no percept
ible effect on the Increase of vice. The
Commission also Is unanimous lu the
opinion that crime, other than small
xlolatlon of ordinances, nf which they
nro not Informed, Is not Increased.

They are engaged by the great manu

native American, Scotchman, Kngllsh

of labor-saving machinery, and the

country great, iintl nsslmllated so well

1884, approximately ninety per cent of
our Immigrants were Kngllsh, Irish,
German, Scandlnaxlan, and French.
Since 188t, the reverse Is true. From
that time until tho present, about
ninety per cent of our Immigrants are
