Immigration to America during too year ended Juno 80, 1907, was vastly greater than in any previous year ot the history ot the United States. This (act with all Its Interesting and Important details. Is placed In strong light In the annual report of Frank P. Sargent, commis sioner general of Immigration and naturallsaUon, which was made pub lic Sunday. Of this great flood of Im migrants, Commissioner Sargent says: "An army of 1,285,349 souls, that hare come, drawn hither by the "free Institutions and the marvelous pros perity of our country the chance here afforded every honest toller to gain a livelihood by the sweat of his brow of the exercise of his Intelll. gence surpassing in numbers the rec ord of all preceding years." The report contains In tabulated form every phase of Information bear ing upon the question of Immigration and In submitting this carefully com' piled data. Mr. Sargent savs: The Immigration for the vear 1907 exceeded that for 1906 by 184,614 and that for the year 1905 bv 258.8S0. or an increase over the year 1906 of more than 17 per cent, and over the year 1906 of more than 25 aer cant. Of peculiar significance ia the table wbich shows the number of Immt. grants from each foreign country, to gether with the Increases or decreases Compared with the Dravloila vpnr Twenty-seven countries showed la- creases and 11 decreaiea.

Interest naturally Attaches to the proportionately large Immigration from Japan. While the exclusion laws have rendered practically nil the immigration from China, the immigra tion from Japan, while relatively not great, has treDled In the past year. Thla Increase is significant, too, be- ause It comes In the face of the regulation adopted toy the America! government wKh the assent of Japan, which. It was sirs posed, would curtail the Immigration of Japanese to this country very materially. Commissioner Sargent presents ex cerpts from effkSal reports made to his tares by Inspectors sent to Mexico and Canada to atudy the situ ation with special Teference to the coming ot Japanese to America through those countries. The reports show that thousands of Japanese land ed In Mexico during the past year and ultimately gained admission, surrepti tiously, Into this country. Once la the United States it was impossible to locate them, except In the rarest Instances. While the regulations con cerning Japanese Immigration hare tended to reduce the number of regu larly admitted Immigrants, hundreds If not thousands of use Japanese are still coating Into the country by stealth. , Referring to the Immigration figures from the various countries, Commit-! slnnar Barient savs the. table "far-1 mmBtmmmmn cm ttzmmi w lass EM era I The New Lumber and Goal Yardg Wishes.
