FOR THE SOUh
IMMIGRATION TO SOLVE THE .
DOMESTIC HELP PROBLEM.
Preparing to Bring a Number of
White Girls to This State from
Ireland and Distribute Them
Where Most Needed.
Columbia. March 19.-Mr. P. Jur
-ensen. of the North -German Lloyds,
who was here today on a trip through
the south appointing local agents for
his steamship company, expressed the
opinion to this correspondent that the
solution of both the immigration and
the servant problem in the south lies
in giving>-proper encouragement to a
good class of immigrants to come into
the cities and towns and work as ser
He denied that the experiments
tried at. several points in North Caro
lina and at the winter resorts in
South Carolina had proved failures,
and said that his long experience in
dealing with immigrants to the
Northwest had demonstrated the
necessity of this way of handling the
newcomers, and he accounted for the
fact that the work of bringing immi
grants into the south was meeting
with slow and otherwise slow success
by pointing to the way the immi
grants areh andled after they get
here. He said that the immigrants
had no objections to working in the
same community where negroes are
employed as servants.
After Mr. .Turgensen had seen Im- 1
migration Commissioner Watson,
however, he changed his view in many
respects. Mr. Watson went over the
situatioi with him carefully and
showed him that the only way to
bring immigrants into the south so
they will stay is by the colonization
plan, instancing a number of cases in
which the newcomers had become dis
satisfied and gone away, and point
ing out the wonderful possibilities of
trucking in this section so favored
over the Northwest by climate.
The demands upon Mr. Watson's
office from every part of the state
for servants has been steadily grow
ing, but so far he has not been able to
meet it in any adequate manner,
though he has placed a few servants
here and there. .
"We think we will have much of
this servant evil cured in about i
months, though,'' Commissioner Wat
son said, "through a scheme we have
blocked out and are about to put into I
operation. Mr. Herbert sails fromj
New York on the 24th for Glasgow
and will work in the. north of Ireland
section, where the people have not
be'en used to high. wages. These im
migrants, in families as far as possi
ble, will be passed at Ellis Island and
put right aboard a Clyde steamer for
Charleston, being ticketed straight
through to Columbia, where they will1
be distrib1uted near the towns so that
the girls who will work in the families
will be safegnarded and will be more
acceptable in the homes. If those
New York labor agents get hold of
them even ever night it 's all off so far.
as this section is'concerned.
"On 'a recent trip to New York I
heard women immigrants just off the
boat offered as high as $45 a month.

meet these sort of prices and wfile
the people here are willing to pay a
little more than they are paying ne

section with white servants in any1
other way than that I have suggest-I
