Mr. Ivins had spent three years in
Mission work in the East Side and

made his talk verv interesting.
Thousands of foreigners land at
Ellis Isle every year, and those who
stay in New York City gather in dis
tricts of that great metropolis ac
cording to their nationality, and
make what are real foreign citie3
within the big city.
There is the German quarter, the
Italian, the Russian,-the Jewish, the
Chinese and even the Arab quarter
all made up entirely of their own na
tionalities. The signs of the stores,
the newspapers, the churches, the
dress, ' the customs everything is
that of the foreign people who in-t
habit the quarter. ."''!
The boundaries of these quarters
are as clearly cut as anycould be

old world. u
Mr. Ivins told how the Italian
banker mortgaged ail; the property,
and wen tlie 'time, of his poor coun

for life. ne told how the Hungarian
