But This Virtue Is Being Over?
taxed by Great Influx of
Copenhagen, Denmark, January 18 ? |
I Denmark is noted for its hospitality to
: foreigners, but there is some evidence
that this virtue is being overtaxed by a
great influx of poor foreigners.
Owing to the lax immigration laws of
Denmark many criminals also have
gotten into the country. Several dis?
tricts in Copenhagen have been taken
'over by the newcdmers. The police
maintain a close watch over the foreign
quarter, a watch which is shsred by the
Russian legation and the leaders of the
Danish Jewish communion which fears
i that its high reputation may be in?
jured by undesirable arrivale.
The greatest trouble In the new di?
trlc? is caused by the meetings and
publications of the Russian political
exiles. The matter printed in the
paper published by their union is such
at times that It is a reflection on a
Besides the political refugees the

I the police arrested a few of 'hem. be
! tween ISO and ISO tried through Russian
relief romnji'ttees to get enough money
to leave the country. It is also feared
that ' white slavers" are making the
' colony their headquarters
Tha authorities are becoming so
alarmed over the conditions that they
'are contemplating measures to check
the influx of undesirable aliens, and in
this connection several citizens have
suggested sn act modeled on the emigra

Demand far Haree Meat.
Tha increase In tha ooet or living has
resulted in a greet demand for horse
mewl among tha poorer eisten The
agitation that arose some time ago ova*
the alleged importation of decayed
horse meat into Sweden via Denmark
has subsided owing to the report of the
Danish sanitary politre.
Considerable horse meat is used in
Sweden. Norway and Denmark 'This
is imported from Oermany and Kng
land and 6tored in the free port, where
it is kept until needed by the dealers.
A short time ago the sanitary police
visited the free port and found twenty
six barrels, which, to quote their re?
port, contained nothing but sound and
good horse meat. A Copenhagen
dealer explained that they never im?
ported American horse meat.
