Irtenn met disappointment 'on the c.o of matrimony When they were taken to the hos pital at Angel Island to undergo nil exnmlnation for tl.c hookworm dis ease the brides made no objection. It was nftcrwnrd learned that they thought this ceremony was but n part nf the American marriage service, as they had been Instructed thnt tho de partment required brides who hud been wedded by tho photogrnpli meth od to bo married hero according to tho local customs. j Hut when thirteen of them were In formed that they were lcttms of the hookworm disease, which, nccoiMIng to tho American law, would prevent their meeting their picture husbands nnd necessitates their departure, there was great lnmenlntlon. Fortunately for the brides h section of the revised statute was discover ed that permits aliens certified by medical examiners to be held for treatment when this course qppinn ad visable "to meet the ends of Justice and humanity," So the picture brides will remain on AngeJ island until they are cured, or pronounced Incurnble, paying 1.2.1 u day to the Oovernment as a hospital fee. When Dr. (llocr pronounces tho happy word they wilt bo allowed to Join their waiting husbands. Ho, after all, their mistake about the hospital service being n part of the marriage ceremony was not altogether an er ror.
