"Between S,00Q;00)D and 4,000,000 Ital
ians arc seeking domiciles and citizen

ImlsBioner Wallis who attributed th
exodus from Europe to the harsh post
war living conditions and the econom
"NO MONEY, NO EAT."
Frequent I the commissioner asked
i I he aliens wh l hey left Europe. Mo?i
of them rei)llel "no money, no eat,"
jhe said Many Italian farmers de
I clared they qui' their native soil be
cause ol i lie danger from explosions
I when plowing in former battlegrounds.
Added to 'he prospective influx of i
immigrants from the countries of the
war allies will be millions in from
Germany who. as soon as the way is
clear, will seek passage to America,
i the immigration authorities hae been
informed by reliable and official
"The immigration in the future will
be limited only by the capacity of the
vessels," Commissioner Wallis said.
(n 'he meantime while wondering
i how many years it will be before aliens
I quit coming across the 'sea at their
! present rate. Ellis island workers are
perplexed over their existing problems
The normal capacity of the island is
reached when 2000 immigrants are in
jepepted daily. Yet, on a recent day,
10,400 aliens were fed there. During
another day the same week 1L00O per
sons were detained in the holds of the
(vessels which brought them over,
! while officials sn uggled with the worlc
I of examining the 4,0ijn then ou the is
land. For i wo davs the island doors
were shut against incomers, who re
mained on boats.
FIGHT IF MIXED.
The rapidity of handling them de
pends upon the aliens lhemselves.
; Commissioner Wallis has found that
! some groups are easier lo exaiu iir
than others while care must be taken
I in separating the many nationalities
which make the island conversation
sound like that at the Tower of Babel
"If we mix Sngllshi Irish and Jews
there Will be a tree for all fight in ten
minutes " said the commissioner. "The
English won't eat with the Jews, and
'call them 'foreigners.'"
Three recent additions lo the tasks
I of the iinmigratiotn officials have
made more tedious the handling of the
aliens. Much time is required in vise
ing passports and the literary test
which all immigrants must pass, also
cause trouble. Each alien must read
in one language before being admitted.
In addition to its labors with the alieus,
the immigration 'Officials examiue ev
ery seaman entering the port, oven
though he left it but a few days b -fore.
In the last eighi month- sonnim
Iseamt a were examined here.
MANY SENT BACK.
Despite congestion everything pos
sible is being done lo make the treat
ment of the aliens on the island hu
mane. Babies are given warm milk
and crackers Candy, Cigarets, fruit and
olher comforts are furnished adults
Sunday concerts, with bands, grand op
era -iar- and others on the program,
are held weekly. For those who ran
not find a bed. 10,000 army blankets
recently received from Washington arc
available for improvised sleeping
Ellis island authorities are trying not
to keep the aliens in the holds of the
vessels after arrival and are striving
not to dela commerce bv holding up
'ships in that manner and Bp tor they
have succeeded. But, no matter ho
I fast the immigrants arrive, the exami
nations will not be made less rigid, but
will continually be made more severe.
Commissioner Wallis said
