The Anti-Nuisance League of the Borough of Richmond is thought by some to have a por tentous uaai* ominous of faultfinding, litiga tion and social and rlvj> belligerence. We should rather regard it optimistically, as auspi cious of much good, and of pood which has long much needed to be wrought. Indeed, we might wish for such an organization, alert, courageous and indefatigable, not only in Rich mond, but In every other borough of this city and in every important community in the land. If such leagues were so widely formed, we have little fear that any of them, in Manhattan or In Squeduak, would languish for lack of reasons for existence. For there are nuisances enough, of one kind or another, everywhere. The "little list** pre pared by Ko-Ko of those who "might well be underground" is a lons one. It has items indi vidual and items corporate; items social, politi cal and industrial. There are the posters and hoardings which give to urban and rural land scapes the air of graphic and polychromatic directories of patent medicines, breakfast foods and sanitary underwear: the railroad companies which continue to sell tickets when the line is hopelessly blocked; the "car ahead"; the stand ing passengers between the seats of open cars. There are the spitters, fewer than they were, font still too many; the smokers who "sneak smokes" where smoking is forbidden; the cam era fiends who take snapshots of unwilling Mbjacts. There are the automobiles which go 100 fast and which arrogate to themselves the centre of the road. There are the ticket specu lators, the women who wear big hats in theatres a lid keep them on. There are the truck driv er* who halt their teams right on the crossings, the men— rarely women— who carry umbrellas horizontally under their arms, and the fools who drown the chimes on New Year's Eve with harsh horns and harsher voices There are— but this I* not an encyclopaedia. But; granted that all these nuisances exist, some say life is too short for the correction of them all. and to be continually "kicking" Is to manifest an unneighborly. uncomfortable and quarrelsome disposition. Not so. The true law of ethics is thai wherever evil exists there should good be exerted. Wherever there is a nuisance there should be a "kicker" with an able-bodied kick. We are convinced that the «xlstenc* of so many nuisances, annoyances and infringements upon rights is due chiefly to the circumstance that Americans are so little Indited to protest against them und to demand their abatement. Men are too busy, or 100 good catured, or too indifferent to "make a fuss" over each at to* petty anuojiuioe* of life. In.. Lowell's apt phrase, they, ''a re : "pigeon livomd, and la.-k ;r;tll." And s.. tl,.> petty; annoyance grows' into « bl| ouo, .and others spring up around It, and they increase and multiply and oppress the earth. What is needed is that we should cultivate a keener sense of right and wrong, and a greater readiness, even an eager ness, to rebuke and to suppress every nuisance and evil the moment it appears. Every law abiding citizen In the land ought to be, by the very fact of his citizenship, an active member of an anti-nuisance league. THE IMMIGRATION PROBLEM. Immigration touched a new high water mark in 1905-*O6. Reports from Washington put the arrivals for the year at 1,062,054. which exceeds the 1904-t)5 total by 36,000. But 1904-' OS was an extraordinary year. It brought an Increase of 214,000 in the volume of immigration and saw the annual inflow of aliens pass the one million mark for tbe first time In our history. In the last decade, in fact, the movement of population toward our shores has virtually doubled, and unless conditions change we shall soon find Our selves saddled with the burden of assimilating annually a mass of alien raw material equal in numbers to our own normal national growtlu A complete classification of Immigrants by na tionalities has not yet been made; but It is evi dent that we are still receiving a disproportion ate quota of recruits from Southern Europe. Italy sent us 222.6CNJ applicants for citizenship last year, against 221,479 in 1904-' OS. Austria- Hungary and Russia were the next largest con tributors, and it Is not unlikely that those three countries will have to be credited with mere than half of last year's immigration. Just as they have furnished the lion's share of it for ten years past. The digestion, economically and politically, but especially politically, of so enormous a mass of aliens — aliens In tongue, ideas and sympathies — has become a serious problem. Congress has been compelled to overhaul our Inspection sys tem and to consider various schemes for restrict ing the alien inflo% and improving its quality. But though the Senate passed an acceptable immigration bill at the last session of Congress, the House, of Representatives, influenced by the delegations from the seaport cities and from inland cities having large alien colonies, so modified Its restrictive provisions as to leave the measure mutilated and Impotent. It is now still in conference committee, to l»e taken up next winter, when, It is to be hoped, the Senate will insist on the restoration of the more important original features. If the majority of our immi grants were easily assimilable — like the English, Irish, Scotch, Welsh. Germans and Scandina vians — there would be no need of resorting to so rigid a sifting process. But the bulk of the newcomers are not equal to adapting themselves to conditions here a^,d are driven to maintain a gregarious colony existence in or near the great cities or in special localities like tbe Penn sylvania anthracite and bituminous coal fields, where they remain a menace, both industrially and politically. So long as they can be imported as mere industrial raw material they will con tinue an alien and discordant element, in the nation, but not of it. and a drag on our develop ment as an enlightened, self-governing democ racy. It is all very well to talk about keeping our gates open to the oppressed of all nations. Within the proper meaning of the phrase that is a great and noble service. But we shall do the world in general a greater service by working out intelligently and soberly the experiment of democratic government, and we should not handi cap ourselves unwisely for that all important task. Some workable device is clearly needed to check the present high tide of immigration. There can be no great objection to increasing the head tax. which is now merely nominal, and Congress would do well to raise this tax, not from $2 to $5, but from $2 to $10. Opinions differ radically as to the advisability of an educational test, and there is something to be said on both sides. But a moderate educational requirement, by deter ring tbe more Ignorant, would raise tho quality of the applicants at our gates and awaken them as nothing else would to the necessity of abjur ing colony isolation and fitting themselves for actual eontnet with and ultimate absorption into American life. THE SIMMER CHAUTAUQUAS. From all over the West, and especially from those char. teri«tic and influential gatherings known as Cnautauquas. come reports of speeches and lectures by men of national reputation in science, literature and especially in politics and religion, or, at least, religious thought. All of thes»- gathering), are modelled more or less after the famous New York Chautauqua, from which they take their name and from which they de rived their H-iginal inspiration. They are schools I- .ruing, philosophy, religion and patriotism, combined with the. allurements of shady proves, boating upon lake or river, tennis, and. in fact, all summer sports and pastimes, tho latter, however, being relegated to their true plncp and subordinated in interest to higher pleasures and higher ideals of living. Of course, if is easy, and especially easy for the city born and bred, accustomed to tbe glamour and fasci nation ->f the ceaseless round of gayeties and the sense of touch with the best there is in the theatre, opera and other forms of urban pleas ure and intellectual interest, to sneer at these gatherings where the participants, even in their summer outings, take life more seriously than do the corresponding classes in the cities. For in stance, at one of these Western Cbautauquas— that at Hastings. Nob. — we read that Senator La Follette talked for three hours and a half the other day to an audience of eight thousand per sons, passing in review during that time much of the legislation of the recent session of Con gress, and naturally expounding his own well known theories as to rate legislation and other matters. It may be admitted that it is rather dif ficult to fancy an audience of eight thousand New Yorkers, moved by no general impulse ex cept that of personal improvement, listening thoughtfully to Senator La Follette. or perhaps to any one else, for three hours and a half of a summer day, but an attempt to make such a com parison will show not a few points in favor of the Hastings audience. There is something im pressive in the earnestness of character and breadth of intelligence whlcn go to make these "queer Chautauqua courses of the West" to which a contemporary referred the other day. Such men as Senator La Follette, Vice-President Fairbanks, Justice Brewer, of the Supreme Court, and many other men of prominence aro frequently among the speakers at these courses, and men of corresponding leadership in the pulpit, in the university and at the bar are also to be heard in the Chautauquas scattered all over the West. These men are Invited to speak before these Intelligent and earnest audiences, not to exploit themselves or to further their am bitions, whatever they may be, but because the people wish to form their own opinions at first hand of them and to hear them present the causes or themes with which they havo become identified in the public mind. It is probably true that Senator La Follette, for Instance, owes much of his popularity in the West to his speeches or lectures before such audiences us that which he addressed at Hasting*. Neb., and a man who goes to the people and expounds his views to them and meets with their approval is always a man to he reckoned with. On the other band, these and similar audiences all over the country are not readily carried away by mere plausibility on the part of a speaker, or even by genuine eloquence. An excellent illus tration of the attitude of these summer audi tors toward the speakers who address them was furnished the other day In tbe case of Sen ator THlmnn's speech at Ellorce,. S. IX A Bap NEW-YOEK DAILY TRIBUNE, V^^EIXNESDAY. AUGUST 1. 1906. ti>r minister, of.-' prominence who hrnrd 7. the South Carolinian, -wrote afterward for a CharleH toa papor an excellent analysis of the man and the speaker, -whom ho had heard then for. tho first time and whoso utterances ha. listened to critically. A similar process goes on in almost every. intelligent man's mind as ho listens to a speaker of national prominence, though, unlike the South Carolinian, he rarely goes to the trouble of writing out his analysis and sending It to the papers. Such auditors are forming their opinions, nevertheless, of their speakers and of the measures they may advocate, and when these persons who have listened at sum mer Chautauquas to able men go to the polls their increased intelligence and knowledge of men and events help them to render a better verdict than they otherwise would. The sum mer ChautauQuas, therefore, ara not to be do spised, but rather to be honored, for in them and in gatherings like them all over the land some of the best American citizenship finds.

To reverse the rule or materially to modify it would be most undesirable, and would Involve the states in interminable and disastrous com plications. Nevertheless, there are strong argu ments in favor of granting, in special cases and under speci 1 conditions, permission to make exceptions to the rule. The State of N\.v Jersey presents a case in point Some of the coast waters of that state, entirely within its borudaries, urgently need improvement. The- condition of Barnegat. Little Egg Harbor, Absecon and other inlets is such as to be a grave detriment to local interests, and. indeed, to the welfare of the state. Ap peals to the federal government have thus far been vain, partly because other more impor tant places have secured appropriations vf all the funds that could be devoted to such works and partly because federal officials regard some of these inlets as unworthy of improvement at national expense. Confronted by this condition of affairs, Jerseymen have expressed willing ness and eagerness to have the work done at state expense, if Congress will only let the state do it. A bill /minting such permission was in troduced at Washington last winter by New Jersey Representatives, but was not enacted. It is understood that it will be reintroduced next winter and strongly pressed by the New Jersey delegation. Xo pood reason why It should not become law is apparent. It would seem to be a hardship to say that because the New Jersey coast in lets are not worth improving at national ex pense the state shall not be permitted to im prove them at state expense. Of course, the work should be done under strict federal super vision and control, and the arrangement should not serve as a precedent for requiring other states to improve their waters against their will. But with these terms and conditions prop erly understood, it would seem to be right and proper to let New Jersey restore, so far as she can, the oldtime prosperity of her coast waters and harbors. POISOS IVY. A correspondent at Greenwich, Conn., who says that he "speaks feelingly." writes that we should confer a lasting benefit, on his part of the country, at least, by indicating a sure and speedy way of getting rid of poison ivy and at the same time advocating a law making it a misdemeanor to permit its growth. We have no doubt that thousands of our readers in many parts of the country share his sentiments, for the evil is widespread. There is no charm or spell for th«» instant annihilation of this noxious vine. The work must bo done with the knife, the grubbing hoe and fire, and these must be used energetically and persistently. Nevertheless, the work Is not a difficult one. The vines are easily cut, broken and torn up, and this may be done with im punity even by those who are susceptible to the poison, provided they take the precaution to wear leather gloves and to do the work In the fall, after the leaves of the vine have died. Rip it up by tho roots, or, if it is too big and stout for that chop it off at or below the sur f.icr* of the ground and let a dram or two of nitric acid soak into the stump. Then make a bonfire of the vine and Its branches. Next spring watch for it. and if any new shoots ap pear pull them up or cut them off and apply the acid. By the third year the '.and should be free from the pest. As for legislation on the subject, it is to be favored. Poison ivy should be under the ban of the law as much as Canada thistles or mad dogs or gypsy moths, at least so far as public highways nrr» concerned. If a man is foolish enough to tolerate it In his garden, we sup pose be may, though if It spreads thence to his neighbor's ground or to tho public road, or if a visitor on his place gets poisoned, be ought to be held responsible. There are miles of public roads in foe suburbs of New York, especially in Westchester County and New Jersey, which are practically lined with thickets of poison ivy or which have the fences or stone walls over grown with it. The local authorities ought to abate the nuisance forthwith. If they do not the state should enact a law compelling them tr> MADE /.V EUROPE. A recent importation, well known in Europe, is the professional mourner. Laboring under tho impression that, there was a necessity in this country for such iin Institution, a citizen of Dela ware has organized a professional mourners' bureau, through which "mourners who will wail at funerals as loudly as may be required" may bo engaged. The bureau, like those after which it baa been fashioned, will furnish either men or women, or both, for the mournful occasions, and will enable bereaved families, no matter how small they may be. to give the late lamented a proper send-off. Concerns of this kind in some parts of Europe provide also elaborately decorated hearses and horses and bearers of religious emblems, and the spectacle of a funeral arranged by them, with Its professional mourners, properly clad, sad of coun tenance and halting In step, is well known to many persons who have visited the Old World. The projector of the American institution has nothing to say about such pageants, but goes a step further than the European prototype by of fering to furnish also "officials at weddings who will look Joyful." If, in the arrangement of the working force of the bureau, earo is not taken that the departments arc kept separate, the re sults may be disastrous. Being "joyful" at a wedding in the morning might interfere seriously with ability to mourn In the prescribed manner later in the day. and the jovial mood of the man who had Just returned from a funeral might be tame and not worth the price.

The newspapers on Monday last and a yesterday contained a melancholy array of news of disasters, great and small, by flood and field, and particularly of deaths or imminent peril of death from drowning. We are now at the height of the bathing and boating season, and every day win record a considerable number of such fatalities, both along the coast and In inland waters. But It Is scarcely worth while to preach a homily upon the theme. The reckless bather and the fool who rocks the boat are perennial and Incorrigible. Ex-Judge Parker does not seem to be com plaining that anybody has stolen hfs political clothes. New York's woman centenarian, recently de parted, lived for forty years on stale bread and milk.

If these Instances may be credited, almost any one can afford to be a centenarian, but most people will hardly think It worth the price. THE TALK OP THE DAT. The people of Switzerland, with all their pro gressive democracy, are a simple people, hardly out of the Middle Ages in some of their beliefs. In Lucerne It is the custom for a lover on May 1 to plant a tree by the roof of his sweetheart's dwelling. A lover in one of the communes, on go ing this year to plant his tree, found that a rival had been there before him. Seizing the sapling, the young fellow flung It away and substituted his own, muttering as he did so things that boded no good to his rival. Now, it is part of the tradition that he who tears up with maledictions a lover's tree once planted Is himself a doomed man. This particular young man, a farmer's son. believing that he has incurred the curse, has fallen into a state of nervous collapse and roams listlessly about In a condition of mental imbecility and bodily decline.

Some one learned In the history of words gives some Instances of what changes the love of uni formity has wrought in the substance of speech. The original English form of "cherry." which comes from "cerise," was' "cherts." It was mis taken for a plural, co "cherry" was manufactured for a singular. Exactly so has "pea" come into being as a false singular obtained from the sup posed plural and true singular "pease." "Sherry" for "sherris" is another case, and "shay" for "chaise," "Chinee" from "Chinese" and "corp" from "corpse" are others in vulgar speech. Simi larly, "riches" Is really a singular, of which "rich esses" was the old plural. THE RULE OF— TWO. A little statistician chap. Who thought of figures as of blisses.

Distracted, anxious kisses— that chill! Frantic and fragrant, beguiling and painful; Fond, firm and holy, satanic, disdainful. If one breathed of fire, the next one was sad; If this kiss was soulless, then that kiss was glad. Refreshing, delicious, divine— and yet fearful; Balsamic, benighting, paradisical, tearf il; Sisterly, brotherly, pious and yearning; Feverish, faithless, fervent and burning; "Freeh as the morning!" "Deep as the sky!" Sacred ones, soft ones, sweet ones, and shy"; Hearty and heavenly, blissful and spicy; From warm, hot and parching to cool, cold and icy!

What is Cobalt? These are queries from every point of the com pass. The discoveries of seemingly unlimited mineral deposits in the primeval forests of the scarcely explored and less inhabited New Ontario a little more than a year ago, have drawn thousands of men from almost every section of the globe to seek their fortunes in this new land of promise and there la every evidence and reason that their hopes will not be blasted on the bleak buttes of a northern shore. ««»««» When we speak of the Cobalt country we have In mind a strip of territory varying from fifty to one hundred and fifty miles in breadth and extending from Latch ford, eeventy-nvo miles north of North Bay, Ont. right through to James Bay. nearly five hundred miles north. More than one-third of this vast territory Is mineral land, and when one considers that not one-fifth of the mineral land rights have as yet been applied for and that tha slipping mines established since the first discov eries already aggregate in value more than tIOO 000,000. an approximate Idea of the potential wealth of the entire territory when in process of develop ment may be gained. *^ MONTREAL, U.

Beginning to-morrow night, the Roman CatJiollo women of Newport's summer colony will go Into an eight-day retreat at the Convent of the Cenacle. Battery and Second streets. Newport. This is the first series of religious exercises erer arranged ex clusively for the summer colony at Newport. It will probably be held each year hereafter, if it Is •well attended this year. The retreat is practically on the Initiative of the Newport women them selves. It was learned yesterday, although It had been außgeßted from time to time by the nuns up there. The retreat will b« prsached by th» Rev. William O'Brien Pardow, S. J., one of ths best preachers in the Jesuit body. Father Pardaw Intends that this first series of religious exercises will be heard by all the cottagers up there. If they choose to attend. He has asked the Catholic women to bring their women friends along, Cathollo or Protestant. It is not un likely that there will be a good sprinkling; of non- Catholics in his audience. Father Pardow has arranged a special series of sermons for this occasion. The retreat will be con ducted on the same principle as all similar exer cises. Newport Catholics, for the time being, wf!l havn to forget the Casino an<! other places of amusement and give themselves up entirely to prayer and examination. • During the retreat those making It will live as ; near in common as possible, and. of course, must abide by the rules laid down and attend the exer- i cises several times dally. Silence is usually im- ; posed on those making retreats from the moment it is opened until it closes. The only exception to lay persons Is an hour at noon and three-quarters ! of an hour In the evening. They will rise at ft o'clock each morning to hear mass, followed by meditation and a sermon. The rest of the time until 10 o'clock will be spent In spiritual reading. At this hour each morning Father Pardow will deliver one of the aeries of pennons. In the after noon there will be a short talk on points of Chris tian doctrine. The evening sermon, generally re garded as the principal sermon of the day is usually given over by the Jesuits to meditations on hell, heaven, purgatory, eternal damnation eto The Convent of the Cenacle is in . charge of the nuns of the Cenaele. It Is expected that at least two hundred women will attend the exercises. Those who have rot cottages at Newport have already engaged quar tern. Some of. the younger women will stay in the convent during the eight days of the retreat. THE KAISER TO VISIT SPAIN.
