Can We Restrict Immigration.
This is it question long since "cut
and dried," but for all that we
could have asked one of less per**
. plexity if not of less gravity just
at this time. Are our present im?
migration laws of tne Mede and
Persian type? Must we forever
allow other nations to back up to
.our shores and dump into our terri?
tory a horde of beings whose pres?
ence will probably effect the char?
acter of our population and the
preservation of our institutions'-''
We at one time believed we could
absorb tne immigration coming to
our shores and soon mould the for?
eigners into good American citi?
zens. That was when they came
from the more moral classes ol
Europe; came to make homes
among us; enjoy our liberty and
free institutions. They came of
their own volition, paid their own
passage and had ample means of
providing for themselves .after they
came. Such immigration did and
would now contribute to the growth
and prosperity of our nation. But
it is vastly diffemt now, a change
has come, and the immigration of
today is male up ol: a different ma?
terial, coming as it does from the
superstitious, ignorant and most
v;cious classes of foreign national?
ities Paupers, criminals, the dis?
eased and all classes demoralizing
to society are coming, teaching dis?
content and inciting laborers to a
hatred of their employers, infusing
into their minds principles that
would subvert law and order by in?
Thousands of these immigrants
are driven out or even helped to
emigrate by those of their native
lands who are anxious to be rid ol
them, while as many are induced to
come by agents of transportation
companies which hope to profit
from their passage money. It is
true that able bodied persons who
are able to earn their own bread
have a natural right to leave their
native country and seek another
which affords better opportunities
aud where the recompense for la?
bor is better. The United States
would not wish to exclude such
immigrants, but for a few years
past, Russia, Austria, Poland, Hun?
gary and Italy have been pouring
in upon us such a flood of undesir*
ble "citizens" that it is becoming
more than we can or should en?
dured. That point has been reach?
ed where patience is no longer a
virtue, and some measure should
be devised to check this class of
immigration, at least, but here
again comes the oft propounded
question, "how can it be done?"
since politicians will not, make a
decided move in this matter for
fear they will drive the naturalized
voters into the folds of the oppos?
ing party- lt is well known that
these politicians will corral our
male immigrants, however ignorant
and degraded they may be, soon af?
ter their arrival and make voters ol
them, whse vote once in the bal?
lot box counts as much as those of
the most intelligent voters of the
laud. It is indeed a knotty prob?
lem that we will be forced to solve
sooner or'later and certain it is that
such actions pu the part of men
who are supposed to have the pow?
er to act in this matter will not
hasten a solution of the provoking
tangle. Can they be so utterly in?
different to America's interests and
so betray the confidence of their
constituents as to turn a deaf ear
to their demands and by bartering
for the foreign votes encourage,
rather than discourage the influx
of a class of beings who only go to
swell the ranks of the followers of
such men as Most and the once no?
torious Parsons. The masses have
not forgotten the disgraceful and
deadly Haymarket riot instigated
by the turbulent spirit of imported
anarchy. The Mafia, the bomb
throwers and the stealth and st* 1? |
letto of the vicious lingo have prey?
ed upon the life and the vitals of
American interests until the peo-i
pie demand a halt. Again the
question, "hew can it be done wi.h
our political demagogues on the,
alert ready to raise objections aud ,
our adopted citizens opnosing any j
attempt that may be made to ex- *
elude their relatives, friends undi
nationalities from our country? If
the new administration would win
the approval of every true Ameri?
can citizen and its leaders a name
immortal let them put their heads
together and devise some effective
constitutional act for permanently
excluding from our country such
immigrants as would be detriment
; 1 to its interests.
This being World's Fair year, a
review of our nation's growth may
he of interest to many. The fol?
lowing is our history in brief as wc
have gathered it from many sourc?
es. We mention only the most
important events that have marked
the rapid strides America has made
in the comparatively short period
of four centuries:
As everv child knows, Columbus
sailed from Spain 01 hs memora?
ble voyage August 3, 1492, just
400 years, 7 mos. and 21 days ago,
and Oct. 12th of the same year dis?
covered America. On the 4fh of
.lune, 1403. he sets out on the re?
turn voyage to Spain, taking with
him several of the natives, a quan?
tity of gold, fruits, and a number
of birds and other specimens from
the new world, reaching Palos on
March 15th of the same year. He
at once proceeded to Barcelona.
where he related to Ferdinand and
Isebella his adventures and, final
triumph. So elated were these sov?
ereigns over the success -of Colum
bus that a fleet of seventeen sail
',ViA placed at his disposal, and
within six months from the date of
his return from his first voyage be
re-enbarked for the New World
taking with him fifteen hundred
men, soldiers, artificiers and mis?
sionaries, and an ample supply of
provisions and seeds and a number
of the domestic animals of the old
world. With these he formed the
colony now grown to be ono of
the strongest, nations on the globe,

Senator Jones for Circuit Judge.
The Clifton Forge Review says;
"'When the next legislature shall
have placed Judge Wm. McLaugh?
lin upon the court of appeals, we
know of no one better fitted to sup?
ply his place on the circuit than
the Hon. C. P. Jones, of Highland.
Learned in the law, cool and unbi?
ased in his judgement, painstaking
and industrious, nnpnrchasable,
?orteous in his conduct and judi?
cial in appearance; where can an?
other be found?.1
"If we were disposed to crticise
the judgement of the Review in
what it has so sententiously ex?
pressed as to the fitness of Mr.
Jones to succeed Judge Wm. Mc?
Laughlin upon the bench we would
be at a loss to find whereof to ac?
Representative Enloe, of Tenn.,
who has for a long time been fight?
ing the many abuses for which Pen?
sion Commissioner Raum was res?
ponsible, has the satisfaction of
knowing that he was directly the
cause of Eau m's resignation being
asked for and receive I by Secretary
Smith. Mr. Enloe lias no candi?
date for the office, all he wi
was to see Raum "tired out" of the
office which he has in various naya
disgraced aud he did not rest until
that was an accomplished fact. It
is expected that the new democrat?
ic Commissioner of Pensions will
be appointed within the next two
weeks. Meanwhile, Deputy Com?
missioner Davidson is acting head
of the Bureau. As to the new
man. Secretary Smith says he is de?
termined to get the best man in the
country for foe place. The right
sort of a man at the head of the
Pension Bureau will have an unex
cePed Opportnity to make a nation?
al reputation, bj saving some of
the millions that are annually
squanderd upon fraudulent and un?
deserving pensioners, mid that's the
sort of a man who will be selected.
