Washington, July '.'0. Itepresentn
tive Stump, of Maryland, who is at the
head of the immigration committee,
declares he will get through con
gress, at this session yet, a
rigid immigration measure. He says
the trouble at Homestead is due te
lax immigration laws, an unnatural as
similation of feieign with domestic ele
ments, and no geed citien will refuse
te step this tendency toward anarchy
and social revolution and riot There is
a feeling among the New Yerk and New
England democrats that it would be
best te let the matter go ever until
next session, when it can be thor
oughly discussed and fearlessly acted
upon. It may be that an effort will
be mnde te tnke the bill up Tuesday.
Mr. Stump says he feels that there
would be no opposition te his measure
if its purport was understood. At the
same time, there are a large number of
democrats who regard any meddling
with immigration at this time as being
unwise and unnecessary, aaid they will
compel the matter te go ever te the
next session, if possible, rather than
have it injected into the campaign at
the present time.
