into custody by Charles K. Andrews,
district director of immigration, and
have begun involuntary journeys to
their homelands. Arrest and deporta

^ April and placed them under bond of
$600 awaiting deportation. Neither

From Red Lodge the men were tak

a h —r d the immigration department's
special guarded car and taken to New
York, whence they will be sent to
their native countries.
These are the first cases of their
kind on record from this city, accord
ing to county officers.
