April 1886 Mr BAYARD wrote to a Portland

able thrmiKli his negotiations with Gnat
Britain t promise relief for American fish

Dominion This was Ills language
H I axpetlta attain each an understanding Mwinre
lleva our fishermen from all doubl or rtak In tht eisrelse
of the ordinary commercial privileges In friendly ports
la which nuder etlstlng laws of both coantrle f eon

This was ono foundation of tho h0 that
nuMnlncd thn fishermen through the year
It being considered not Improbable that
tho needed relief

When the fishing Reason closed with no IUe
cess ill London and no resort to the DINOLKY
Hotnllutlon act It WAS Btlll hoped that the

Yet nuw tho now ilshlng uwon has coma

but ho furnishes no ground for such I trust
and on the contrary It Is understood that at
tho Ist Cabinet meeting Information was
given that tho British Government had sustained

AH tho signs Indicate a still more vigorous
persecution of our fishermen than last year

The Increase of Immigration
The reports from Europe a that Immigration
gration to this country which had fallen off
greatly In 1883 and 1886 Is likely t rise
daring the present year t very large proportions
portions This of course Is a Indication
that the Impression has gone abroad that
the United States have entered upon a new
career of prosperity and It IB not lmprobable
that the threatened disturbance to European
Industry because of war la giving 1 further
Impulse t emigration
Tho demands upon the emigrant accom
modations of tho Atlantic steamship lines
a sold t b now greater than they have
been for half a dozen years and the emigration
tion promises t b from Europe pretty gen
erally Tho persecuted Jews of Bussla and
Routnanla and their brethren l other coun
tries who suffer from antiSemitic sentiment
will come In Increasing numbers a un
usually large body of mechanics are getting
ready t emigrate from England Scotland
and Wales the Germans a likely t cross
tho ocean In multitudes like those of the
most active days of German Immigration
and the Scandinavians will greatly swell the
throng who will land on our shores when the
Is advanced Such at least is the
year I more adlc leat I te
present prospect
The time was when Americans generally
would have looked forward to such
loke fora t an
immigration with much selfcomplocenpy
That tho oppressed of Europe should come t
this land of plenty and of freedom would
have stirred their national pride for then
tho republic as the asylum of the down
trodden of the earth was a favorite theme
for Fourth of July oratory Our rapid
growth in population was the common boost
so that the more who came t swell our
numbers the better satisfied with themselves
and their ixmntry were those already here
But In these there Is different
now l thes days ther I a very
ferent feeling with regard t this foreign Im
migration The ablebodied Germans Eng
lishmen Irishmen Italians and Scandina
vians are no longer welcomed but ore looked
upon ns 8 many additional competitors in a
labor market already sufficiently supplied
or actually oversupplied The recent op
position t foreign Immigration comes
too In great in chief plt from
those who were Immigrants themselves
or are tho children of Immigrants I show
itself not In tho crowded cities of the East
merely but In the very States of the West
which were built up within a generation by
such immigration Beginning with bitter
hostility t the Chinamen it has extended t
toiflgnora generally and t the provisions
under which they are 8 rapidly admitted t
cllixonshlp and thus stimulated In their de
sir to come to the republic by tho prospect
of political
plteal power
This lately aroused sentiment found ex
pression In tile law of the last Congress providing
viding for the exclusion of aliens under con
tract t labor By a previous act that of
Feb 201883 such aliens are excluded but
the new low contains stringent provisions
for Its execution and directs that they be
searched out by agents t b sent aboard
passenger vessels und sent back at the ex
pense of the owners of the ship Nor is It
likely that the demand for the restriction of
Immigration will b satisfied with this ep
daily l if the expectation of greatly Increased
business at Castle Garden shall b fulfilled
before agaIn assembles
btora Congress Ilalo Umblls
The Immigration question will therefore
probably become more and more prominent
from this time forward It Is a very well t
grow in population faster than any other
country provided thero Is work enough for
everybody at good wages but when the
labor conditions here approximate those of
the lands from which tho emigrants fly the
subject presents Itself In I different light t
the workers in the
tl workor already tle republic

BAM FRANCISCO April 10 Lcland Stan
ford President of tho Southern Pacific Railway
Company says regarding the effect which the
enforcement of the fourth section of tho Inter
State Commerce law would have on tho com
merce of Ban Francisco I
A literal enforcement of the fourth section
would be destructive of our commerce not i
only with China and Japan but with Australia
and all other countries from which trade nat
urally comes to us by way of the Pacific Ocean
The through freight business Is not more than
fifteen per cent of our whole carrying trade It
Is upon our local trade that we depend for
business Through business even at the low
rates at which we have to take it in order to
compete with the ocean routes contributes
toward paying the expenses of lie road and to
that extent operates In a measure to enable us
to make lower rates on local business than
might otherwise be possible Now however
we are brought face to faco with this proposi
tion If the law Is to be literally enforced we
cannot mako a special rate for this through
business without making a corresponding rate
for all our local business We shall be com
pelled to choose between local and through
business and In that event naturally we will
have to forego through business

WASHINGTON April 10The Commissioner
of Agriculture has sent to Cloy Bill of New
York a copy of a proposed bill to be enacted by
State Legislatures for cooperating with the
Bureau of Animal Industry In suppressing and
extirpating contagious cattle diseases saying
that It Is Important that the legislation of the

pneumonia should be ns nearly uniform as
possible The Commissioner adds
Yon are no doubt aware that contagious plenro pnen
monla Is now prevalent In certain aectlone of the state
of New honk more particularly In the county of Wash
ington cities of new York and Brooklyn and on Long
Is and and that adjoining Stales have quarantl e a
against cattle from New York State This department
Is I OeMrious of stamping out the disease promptly and It
this bill or a similar one were passed by the LeinslAture
nf > ew York Mate It would greatly aid us In accomplish
lug this purpose and would probably prove the most ef
ficient form of cooperation
The proposed bill authorizes the Governor
to accept in behalf of the State the rules and
regulations of the Commissioner of Agricul
ture It confers upon the Inspectors of the
Bureau of Animal Industry the right of In
spection quarantine and condemnation and
authorizes them to call upon Kheriffs con

provides that all expenses shall be borne by
