Immigration Inspector to Investigati Conditions In PittsOurg. Pittsburg, March 24. Scores ol Pittsburg's "undesirable citizens'" will probably be deported by the fed eta! government within a short time John T. Harper. Inspector-at-large foi the bureau of immigration, has arrived in Pittsburg mid will begin an inves tigation today, securing statistics for the government officials concerning the condition of foreigners who have been in this country less than three years. The Municipal hospital, the City Home at Marshalsea, all hospitals handling charity cases, and the police stations will be visited to ascertain the number of foreigners who have become charges on the public since their arrival here. Those who have been convicted of crimes also come under the ban recently Issued, and will also be deported. Recent activity of anarchists, Black Handera and criminals of all classes among the foreigners has spurred the department Into active work to rid the country of all such characters. Inspector Harper expects to make a Thorough Investigation of the records at police stations and In charitable in stitutions, and all foreigners who have not yet been In this country three years who iave transgressed the crim inal laws or have become publlo charges will he returned to the old country. The Pittsburg district, It Is believed, will prove r fruitful field for the activities of the immigration de partment. It (s also said that the Immigration officials will be much more strict than .formerly In the admission of foreign ers to this country.
