THE IIGRATION DEPARTMENT.
Governor ieyward has shown wis
dom in his appointment cot the new
secretary of immigration. If any
thing can insure the success of the
new department, we believe it will be
the appointment of Col. E. J. Watson
as secretary, recently made by Gover
nor Heyward. Col. Watson has been
intimately connected with the work
leading up to the establishment of the
new department, is thoroughly in sym
pathy with the movement, is a hard
and tireless worker, and well qualified
in every way for the duties of his new
office. In addition to this, he has an
extensive acquaintance throughout the
State, and is liked and esteemed where
he is known.
We opposed the establishment of
the new department because we did
not believe that the cost would be jus
tified by the possible benefits. True,
the State needs a desirable class of
immigrants, and the.~cost of the de
partment for the first year is compara
tively small. But if the ideas of those
who brought about the creation of the
new departnment are carried out. there
will in all probability be a big appro
priation asked irom the next general
assembly which must be granted. and
so it will continue.
But since the department has been
established we desire to see it suc
ceed, and for thatreason we are very
much gratified that Col. Watson has
been placed at the head of the new

thinks that of all those wl;o have been
