In another column we print an in
terview from Mr. J. A. Patten on the
immigration question. He reviews
certain proposed legislation by con
gress and discusses the questivn i
telligently. We hope those of our
readers who are interested iii this
question, and all of us are iitere.ted,
will read ,what Mr. Patten has to
We have never taken to the idea
that we should go wild on the sub
ject of immigration or that there was
any necessity for us to be seeking im
migrants at all.
Of course, if good people warat to
come 'among us there should 'be noth
ing throw:i in their way and we
should bid them welcome. But we
have never been able to see the wis
dom of running around hukating peo
pie and begging them to come to
It is a little strange that we should
say that it is necessary to have more
white people to overcome the large
negro majority and at the same time
pass laws which practically prohibit
any- one coming here to take from
South Carolina any of the negroes.
A state as dld as South Carolina,
it does not seem to us, should have
any necessity to _, out begging peo
ple to come. Besides we are now as
prosperous as any section of the
globe acid why as Mr. 'Patten says
should we want to be seeking other
conditions that we know not what
the result may be.
We desire to quote from Mr. Pat
ten's interview the following and to
commend it to the thoughtful con
sideration of those who think that
we shall go to the bad if we do not
get a large lot xf the immigrants who
are being dumped on our shores. It
seems to us we had better cut the
whole business o:t and go on with
our own people and our Own civiliza
tion. Speaking of this subject Mr.
