NEW YORK, Sbp?" 26.?The Immigration
department, 'of the National
Civic Federation bold a special convention
In thef Park5 A venae Hotel to
take up U>e subject of whether rest
rtctlon of Immigration was advisable
In view' of the fact that a bill is: before.

4153, providing foriTestrlctlon of Immigratlnn

chairman . of the, immigration.
department; presided, and about 100
business men, college professors, labor
leaders and others attended. Prescott
F. Hall, secretary of the National
Immigration Restriction League, read
portions of the bill and spoke In favor
of restriction of immigration.
Nathan BIJur, of the United Hebrew
Charities, said he could see no good
reason for changing tbe policy of the
government sb to Immigration. Tbe
; country had prospered under the present
conditions, and the prosperity had
[been shared by the wage-earners.
After some of the delegates had
spoken -on restriction of immigration
ID. D. Allen, of Kentucky, took the

we have got to the point where we
1 do not want' any further Immigration.
Labor is at a premium in Kentucky,
Alabama and other southern States.
I believe the.United States could do
with 1,000,000 desirable immigrants
n year."
A labor delegate asked him to define
what a desirable immigrant was.
He said he meant every able-bodied
man or woman of good character and
intelligence, whether they h8d $25
with them or not.
John Mitchell, president of the Unit
ed Mlneworkers, took exception to
the -arguments against Interfering
with the present order of things.
"In spite of what Mr. BIJur states,"
he said, "there must be something to
Improve when 600,000 mlnaworkers in

prosperity are only permitted to

when they are willing to work
300 days. How lon^ will they be allowed
to work when there Is Industrial
depression? There should be
some educational qualification,' and
each, immigrant should have enough
money to keep him until he finds as
profitable work 88 he can. To take
the first work at hand Is to take another
man's job as .a rule."
James O'Connell, of the International
Association of .Machinists, said that
the conditions of labor were gauged
by ?be number of Immigrants admitted/
Unrestricted immigration, he
said, meant the bringing down of
wages. He talked of the employment
of child labor and -women In the fac:
torles and mines. 9o much Immigration
was doing harm. He coiild mot

A Woman Delegate.
A woman delegate took him up at
this point and asked bim where women
were employed In mines In this
country, whereupon he took -thait part
of his statement back, and said he
had made a mistake. In reply to a
number of qnestione put to htm by
O'Connell, Mr. Bljur said he had no
.positive opinions on the question of
"It Is up to the opponents of immigration,"
be continued, "to show that
there should be any change in the
present system. In my opinion this
has not been shown: In spite of the
development of machinery and increasing
immigration wages have
gone on Increasing and the condition
nf the workers Improving. Mr. Mitchell
has not said that the reason for
the miners working 200 days in the
year was caused by Immigration."
Another speaker said that mos/ of
the workers who were not Immigrants
themselves, and also some of the millionaires,
were descended from Immigrants
who came hereywith little or
I no money. }

It Is as It should be. the citizens of

be well fortified. It is to the ciredlt
of the War Department that New
