The court read a lengthy charge In which he outlined the duties of the Inquisitors, among other things Instructing them that they are authorized to Investigate any unusual conditions, though these con ditions need not always call for crimi nal charges. Discussing crime and the criminal court's work, he quoted figures showing the distribution of prisoners of nation ality or race, making the following significant comment: "It will thus be seen that of all the nationalities mentioned, the Japanese make the most credible showincr. with the Chinese a fairly close second: that the Porto Ricans make by far the most unfavorable Viowing. and that the Filipino follow them, but at a wide Interval. These figures may sug gest to those responsible for our im migration In the past, as well as to those to whom such matters shall b confided in the future, some food for thought, and It is to he hoped that thin food will be cbeerfullv consumed and thoroughly assimilated.' ; 1 BRITISH COMMANDER MAKES SECRET TRIP TO COUNCIL OF WAR State Department Dissatisfied Because Practical Enforce ment of Pfan to Give Quicker Transit to Shipments Into , War Zone is Held in Abey ance by Britain y -' Sir.
