since the war have invaded France.

whose status is no*, r?glementai y to

Figures published recently show
that there are in Paris some 200,000
foreigners. In this number aro In
cluded 1,800 Gormans, 22,000 Amer
icans, 4,000 Argentineans, 2,000 Ar
menians, 25,000 Britishers, 13,000
Spaniards, 39,000 Italians, 7,000

000 Russians, 10,000 Roumanians
and 2,000 Czechs.
Theso figures represent but thoso
who have registered with the French
police. They do not include tourists.
Added, however, to this large num
ber are thousands of others who live
burled away In filthy hovels of the
city. Moat of them have had to fleo
their own country and are wanted by
the police. Others are voluntary ex
iles from their home countries.
Colonies of Foreigners.
In certain parts of Paris veritable
small colonies exist whore French ls
hardly ever spoken, where shops are
managed by foreigners, where oven
the newspapers are printed In for
eign languages. One such colony
exists in tho Latin quarter around
the Rue des Rosiers, where hundreds
of Russians and Poles live. Other
foreigners, and oven Parisians, pass
ing through thoso districts aro con
sidered strangers, often Insulted, and
sometimes attacked and robbed.
Steps were once taken to arrest
and deport these foreigners, but lu
most cases French laws were found
inapplicable. Some havo boen de
ported out of the country. They were
usually accompanied to tho Belgian
frontier and left there. The Belgian
authorities, in their turn, found most
of these people undesirable, and
promptly deported them back to
France. Now arrangements are to ho
made whereby they will be sent
across Germany to that country's
nearest frontiers. No difficulty ls en
countered In the case of the Span
iards, Italians, Swiss, etc., and they
are usually left at their respective
frontiers and rarely find their way
hack Into Frauce.
