Shuford speaking before the convel

The State Farmers' union went on
record yesterday against the bring

foreigners." The following is the'
"Whereas foreign immigration is
being agitated again for the South
and the diversion and distribution of
foreigners now congesting and com
ing into the cities of the Northeast is
proposed as a means of relief for
Northern immigration evils; and,
"Whereas we are unalterably op
posed, as set forth in our local, State
and national union in resolutions and
our national committee's statement
before the house immigration com

influx from the Southeast, Europe and
western Asia and its distribution by
the federal government; and there

"Resolved by the Farmers' Educa
tioial and Cooperative Union of South
Carolina. this 28th day of July, 1910,,
that we heartily indorse our national
resolutions, approve the argument of
ou national legislative committee, i
and urge upon congress restriction by
,means of an increased head-tax, a
money requirement, the illiteracy test,
such as Australia and other new
countries have for their protection
against undesirable foreigners, the
defeat of all distribution schemes
and legislation that will carry out the
recommendations of the United States
commtssioner general of inamigration
contained in his annual report; and
be it further
"Resolved, that the State secretary
send a copy of these resolutions to'
President Taft, the immigration cm
mission, our congressmen and sena
tors and supply the newspapers with
a copy for publication."
These resolutions followed an ad
dress by J. M. Patten of Washington,
who is in charge of the work of re
stricting - mimigration-not of pre
venting the coming of settlers who
are persons of desirable character,
but of the unrestricted pouring in of
foreign laborers and fortune hunters.
Mr. Patten, who was Introduced by
President C. S. Barrett, was very
complimentary to the farmers' union
and urged the importance of the or
ganization and told interestingly of'
1the work of the legislative committee
of the union which appeared before
the house committee on immigration.

and insane of foreign countries who.
took advantage of contracts of steam

ship them out of these countries than'
to maintain them there. According
