To the Editor of The Ereuinjf Star: In The Star yesterday a correspondent states: "Justice Bradley of the Supreme Court of the District had an interesting Question before him the other day, when he granted naturalization papers to a young Porto Rican." The correspondent proceeds to dis cuss the "ruling" of the court in the mat ter. Permit me to say that Justice Bradley did not grant any such, papers, nor did he make any ruling. The young Porto Rican referred to has been residing in this coun try a little longer than one year; there fore. he is not entitled to final papers, If, indeed, It be necessary for him to take out naturalization papers. He merely desired to declare his intention of becoming a citi zen of the United States. At the instance of an assistant clerk the matter was called to the attention of the court in an informal way. That was as far as It went. Justice Bradley made no rul ing whatsoever, and In no wise determined the question of the status of a native of Porto Rico with relation to the United States.
