THE PERILS OF IMMIGRATION
By WrIITELAW REID
bit seventeon veara there has been a steadv decline in
immigration from tho lands of our ancestors and of
their kinsfolk?that is to Bay, from England, Scotland,
Ireland, Wales, Germany, Denmark and Switzerland.
During the samo period thcro has been a STEADY
AND PROGRESSIVE INCREASE from Italy, Austria-Hungary,
Russia, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Belgium, Romunnin, etc., and, final
ly, to give an analysis by races rather than more nationalities, 28 per
cent of tho wholo immigration in 1902 was Italian, 11 per cent'of It
was Polish, 9 per cent was Hebrew and 15 per cent was Slovak, Croa
tian, Slavonian and Magyar?THESE RACKS THUS MAKING

This free peoplo will never take away tho welcome wo have given
to tho pauper and the illiterate, to tho communist and the anarchist
from abroad whom we have already made at Lome among us; will
never withdraw tho suffrage from the man who now has it, but CAN
NOT READ HIS BALLOT; from tho man that votes without
ever paving taxes or from the man that has boon convicted of crimo
but has been pardoned out just before his term expired in order that
ho may again render us his help in securing tho blessings of liborty
for ourselves and our posterity. WHAT IS DONE IS BEYOND
RECALL, and with all its faults tho achievement is colossal and of
worldwide beneficence. But if, in tho onward rush of this magnifi
cent development no great harm has yet resulted?if, indeed, good
has como beeauso of or in spito of our having so largely lost sight for
tho tinio of tho purpose declared in tho constitution?is it wise to
continue INDEFINITELY on the changed course ?

Public School Boys Are the Best
