AW. IV. DISTRIBUTE OUR IMMIGRANTS WISELY.
URINO thr years from 1X0 to 1910. roundly .OOO.OflO aliens earn Into
this country, With fU.tT-'.IKlo' of population, Mrty one In tn waa
from BtirOM nnd landed hats' within the dsOad. According to In
CljL'n's of th i lluiouu f Immigration during the past six years ovsr
ii.000.nuii poop! nm' here from Kurope.
then.' UPWtWd f u.txm.'OO went Into New Kngland. New Jersey, New
, Pennsylvania, )h!o and Illinois. Hardly nny wont on toe farms. They
lick e l up by the mince and tho manufsctuurs. They became food con
sumers, not food producers, naee reducer and not wage advancers.
Aa manufacturing advances, cbtle grow nnd tMW aro blotted out tnirtng
a vecent Now Kngland dix-ade. 15.300 factories rune into being end 14,344 farms

(treating, not only in New Kngland snd New York, bill In New JVrsey, Ohio, In
diana. U'lnols and Iowa. The American ,'armftj gi to the 11 -minion. In I.I0,
na teas than 1U3.S44 of than crossed over the line Into Canada.
The Solution of a Problem.
The wlao distribution of our Immigrants, settling them on fh soil, rather
than crowding tliom In our cities. Is the solution of the InimlKr.mt problem. We
en never have too many good Immigrants. The farmere' diirlculty and discour
agement are due inslnly to the lack of help.
There are no better farmers than the Hungarians, Yet thoy make a bee line
favour mines, to get money quickly. And they tend IIS.OOO.OOO home every year.
The same Is true of the Italians, who know nil about fruit tnd truck gardening.
All told, our Immigrants, who are largely blrda of paasoge. iW.OOO going hack to
VJurope last yesr took home with them " ,000.000. The Greeks and Italian
are waging their ware on American money. If these sturdy men of the soil were
settled on our land tliey would become permanent citizen i, and patriotic men.
For land ownership, a stake In the country, creates an Interest In the country'a
I know no more successful way of makln ; a nation poor than by our present
encouragement of an Immigration to our mlno and factories an Immigration
which sends the earnings home. I would like to see our ChlnCsCi Instead of tun
olng laundries for which they are not fitted, become truck gardeners. For rals
lisg vegetables Is a stMencs they know to jet fiction. The same Is true of the
Lands by the thousands of acres in Connecticut. New Torlt, New Jersey and
Psnnaylvania, within one hundred mls of New York City, enn be bought for
tit the aero. Thcao lands. In proximity to a population of ten millions to be foil,
aro lying Idle. Two-thirds of the lands ever within fifty milus of New York
re unimproved, while lands in the far northwest Canada are advertised In our
inegaxlnee at I'' un acre.
When the Land Is Well Farmed.
I know gong land near the market '.a often I xpeiislve. Hut a little bit of land.
Intensively farmed, will pay well, n nnrdlens of the price. Largo farms are often
worth nothing. You can generally buy the whole ouiflt for less than the btilldlnsre.
It pays better to hire or buy an acre or two worth 11,000 If near tho
market than buy a firm for IM an acre far 'rnm the market. A little bit of
earth neur the city, which enn bo rented for a wing, worked without buildings
and Its products Fold without deluy, Is a fact reformers ahonld Instil Into tho
mlnda of the newcomer. And our Immigrants are beginning to prove here and
thare, by Intensive trucking and tpagUV.lt Ml with up-to-date-niethids. that there
are a living and liberty on the land.
The old time farmer had three to Ave ni res to the cow. Intensive dairying
hag five cows to the n:e. Instead of or. duel ng 1100 worth of product to seven
acres, we am beginning: lo produce I7'i0 to th acre. Instead f four acres to the
track crops, the Jni.Tilgrant who have been Induced to go on the soil are produc
ing four truck crops to the acre. Japan. Denmark and Frunea shjw us what a
patch of two to light acres will do to suppor; a family.
Get After the Waste-Land Oirnera.
To give our Immigrants a chnnce to get on tbe noli 1 want the iovei nment to
got after the land-grabbers, ranchmen, nnl railroad WW 'h have appropriate 1
the land and fraudulently Inclosed It. one man "own" l,;..ti.0O0 acres or tho rich
est land In California, and Oregon 12.500 square miles an are three times as
great na New Jersey.
One hundrtd men In the Secreniento Valley have come to "own" 17.000,000
acres ranches from eight to one hundred miles In extent. There are alngle es
tate In America twice the size of Belgium, bigger than the combined area of
Now Hampshire, MHasachuaettn, ConaoCttOUt and Delaware.
The more than l&o.ooo.ooo acres of land which h ire been Illegally or colluslvolv
appropriated rrom the public domain I would have reOtOrOQ to the poo pie, And
I would not only 'have the (lovernment give eomo acres to our Immigrants, but I
aid have tho Government aid the farmer, and to lo Ul him the money he needs
to start the tilling of the soil and the harvesting of his first crop.
Agriculture Is a bual Industry, all other Industries dep.-nd upon It. Make
agrtoulture prosperous and every other Industry will flourish. Money taken
from tb National Treusury to promote agriculture wtll. like tbe dew, return to
rsvrv overy other Industry. Advance a-grlrulture, make prosperous our farms,
ami our cities and towns will grow, our merchants win have Incaased business,
w will all have cheaper food. '
