it easier than heretofore to turn back
the incapables and to roll the efforts
of foreign nations to nnioafl their paupers
and perverts upon the. charitable
and' correctional Institutions of the
United States. Also the Immigration
authorities are authorized to attempt
"a beneficial distribution of admitted
aliens among the several States and
territories desiring Immigration." The
operation of this task of distribution
will be watched with close interest,
for it Is likely to prove by no means
as easy as it looks. The tendency of
Immigrants to gather In great cities Is
far from being altogether accidental.

Italians already settled here, and the
various foreign colonies receive steady
accretions. A very large proportion
of the Immigrants have a definite destination
In mind when they start for
this country and land ticketed through.
Some Southern and Western States
will doubtless pick up help under the
distribution project, but their retention
of these laborers depends upon
the acceptability of the employment
afforded. Allen congestion In our hl-t
cities Is a problem which may demand
many experiments before a solution
Is attained, and the popular but eis.
roneous Impression that every foreigner
coming here Is so eager for labor
that he will go anywhere to secure it
Is likely to prove one of the embarrassments
of the station.
In Oklahoma.
Kansas City Star.
The Supreme Court of Oklahoma,
havlpg dissolved the injunction against
the constitutional election, the question
is squarely up to the Republicans
to make their fight against the adoption
of the constitution or nominate
a State ticket and contend with the
Democrats for political control of the I
uew 'State. The people of Oklahoma
have been so urgent in their demand
for statehood that It seems entirely
Improbable that they will reject the
constitution and rob themselves of
self-government unless there appear*
some serious flaws in the instrument.
They will not revolt against It simply
because it was framed by a Democrat- Ic

The Democratic Problem. 1
Ohio State Journal. 1
The direct refusal of the Pennsylva- '
nla Democrats to Indorse Mr. Bryan 1
for the presidency Is significant of the 1
waning enthusiasm with which Democratic
politicians look forward to a |
third Bryan campaign. With Mr. .
Bryan their candidate against a rep- ,
resenlative of the Roosevelt policies, |
what in the world could the Democrats j
bring forward as their paramount Is- i
sue! ,
Both President Roosevelt and Mr.
Bryan are loose constructionists. Both ,
believe in the extension of federat ,
powers of government. The difference i
Is that Mr. Roosevelt stops short of ,
socialism, while Mr. Bryan has lost j
the support of the conservative men
ef his party by hi8 railroad ownership
propaganda. Mr. Bryan frequently
complains that the RepuDllcan administration
has stolen his thunder. In
other words, If he is made the candl- .
date against a Roosevelt Republican ,
the only ground on which he can ap- (
peal for votes will be that, while praising
the present administration for the
big things it has done, he thinks it
might have gone further, such a plea
cannot be made very effective with
any class of thinkers. So, in view of
the turn affairs have taken in the Re- '
publican party, it looks as if Mr. Bryan <
could not posBibiy be eiectea presi- >
dent In . 1908. Since it has become i
evident that the Republicans will not <
name a reactionary, Democratic man- I
agera are convinced that bla candidacy I
could not be successrul, anil their <
bard problem is to find a man wbo <
would stand a better cbance. . l

educational conference opened in Morjantown
with a large ana enthusiastic J
crowd of educations and other inter- j
isted people present. The presiding
3dicer Is President ^urlnton, of the t
University and -8, P. Hattan, of Pow- (
latton college, Is secretary..
The first speaker was J. F. March,
principal of the HarrlsvlUe schools, j
who discussed at some length the 1
county high school. He IndulgeJ In :
tome reminiscence of the time when I
there were no county high schools, I
tnd he Is a young man yet. The dls- I
trlct high Bchool was discussed by t
Principal 0. O. Crawford of Fayette
county, Principal 1. F. Stewart, of I
pf Wood county, Principal Frank J. I
Tracy, of Taylor county, Professor i
fasper Newton Deahl and Dr. Shel- I
Ion. "
T. C. Johnson, of the University '
ielivered a paper on the Agricultural
High School. He suggests that agrl- 1
culture' be Introduced in the high
school. In this he was opposed by 1
Dr. Charles A. McMurry, who Insists J
that the high school must confine Its'1
sttention to general educational work,
and leave the technical work to the 1
college. He Insists that the course 1
Is Impractical to top-heavy, which 1
pplnlon will find many supporters.
"District Supervision" was the (
theme of Principal J. C. Shaw, of the
Slenvllle State Normal school. He ,
claims that many students leave the ]
country schools because of poor sup- |
crvlslon. that aimless teachers continue
holding positions, and many
laults are perpetuated. Supt. Faust, c
if Marlon county, contributed consld- 1
irable ginger by his remarks, which t
were able. Professor MpBee^polte.eu- c

* Plague-Swept India,
few.' York Sun.
During the- first three and a half
rears of 1907 the deathi from the
>!agut In India totalled 494,000, the
leaviest v monthly mortality yet rejorted
during the epidemic. This
vould appear to show that the preeint
year will exhibit a rtcord trimler
of deaths.
The plague, recerds for the ten ,
rears, October, 1896, to .December, s
1906, show that there was a Urge
tnnual Increase from 1901 to 1904,
he deaths numbering 274,000 In 1901, ^
577,000 in 1902, 657,006 in 1903 and
il,022,000 in 1904, the worst year in 1
an years.
There was a small decrease in 1905, ^
he deaths falling ,te 951,000, and a
arge decrease In ? 1906, When there (
were only 332,000. The total deaths
or the whole ten years numbered
1,411,212. The improvement whtcn y
was shown' In the two years 1905 and
1906 has not, unfortunately, been
nalntalned. j
From the first appearance of the
lisease up to the year 1901 the mor- ,
tallty was greatest In the Bombay
presidency, but from 1902 onward,
with one exception, the worst area (
ids been the Punjab, and in 1905 the
leaths In the latter province alone
lumbered 364,626. |>
