Presidont Taft has called
CongroKB to meet in extra BOS'
sion on April Ith.
The Sixty-lirst Congress ad
jottrned on last Saturday with
many important bills on the
calendar not disposed of.
Gotting up in tho world is
like getting up on a cold frosty
morning out of a warm bed,
both require a lot of self denial
and a whole lot more of self
will. Such is the cruel laws of
success.
Tho Sundry Civil bill, which
was the last of the great supply
hill to pass Congress before ?s
expiration by limitation of law
on Saturday curries $7,26!1,260
for works authorized by former
river ami harbor acts going as
far back as 1800, In soVeral
cases these direct appropria?
tions will complete contract
authorizations, One feature of
the Sundry Civic bill relating to
river ami harbor contract work
is an appropriation of {1135,000
which is made immediately
available for a survoy of the
northern anil not th western
lukes which include the prep?
aration ami printing and the
issuing of charts and bulletins
anil tif Investigating hike lev-Is
with a view to their regulation.
This appropriation is the out
growth of a sentiment that if
tho Chicago river is improved
as contemplated that the levels
of some of the northwestern
lakes, particularly Lake Michi?
gan, would he considerably
lowered. Scientists have fought
the itlea vigorously, hut lake
captains and those who have
followed the water for n llvll
hood in the northwestern sec?
tion of the country insist that
if tlte Chicago river is improved
as a part of the Lakes to the
Gulf system it will have a very
material effect upon lake levels.
The passage of the Sundry
Civil bill anil the river ant.
harbor bill gives upwards of
f32,0<)0,000 to the engineer corps
of the army for tho continued
improvement of the rivers,
harbors and canals of tho cotin
try which will be available
during the fiscal year ending
June 80, 1?12.

many contributions from other

millions of Chinese inhabitants
aro in dire distress.

THE "BACK HOME"
MOVEMENT.
(II) W II ItOIIKIlTS.)
In its last analysis the mutter
of Southern immigration is a
work for individuals A real
iminigratioin to the South will
never result from groat Cetitrul
meetings and their enthusi?
asms. 'The* purpose of the
"Back Home" movement is to
put our own people to work
each individual of tllOlri. The
plan is for every person how in
the'South to ask someone else
to come; for every person to
ask. to urge his relative or
friend who has gone West or
Northwest to return to tho
iSouth, "back home." If this
is done, und if the invitation is
made emphatic; if facts are
given which are convincing,
then for the invited ones,
themselves, to pass the invita?
tion on to some one who are not
Southerners, but who ought to
he. 'This I* the second step in
the "Rack Home" movement.
The next, and last, is to give
the movement such a scope anil
make it of such vital "human
interest" that the press of the
United States must give it pub?
licity as ii matter of news,
thereby advertising tho South
and its advantages, 'The last
is already being done, and cuti
be greatly extended.
'The plan is simple. Time
need not bo wasted in theoriz?
ing whether it will do any good;
whether our friends will actual?
ly come "hack home,'' anil
whether the South is as good or
better for them than the West
Had Northwest. All that is
necessary is work?work as
Individuals or through their
commercial organizations or
newspapers. A three months
subscription given to your local
newspaper for some friend in
the West will be a practical
help, for through it he enn Ree
what possibilities ar. now in
tho South for him, and, also, it
will tell his neighbor about the
South. More than that, you can
giye his name and address to
your board of trade which will
send him literature, or you can
send same to the railroads and
we will do it. We will not send
him literature exclusively about
the Clinohfleld cither, for we
arc enough concerned about
this matter of getting more
people in the South to be spend?
ing our money in trying to get
all the railroads into the "Hack
Home" movement. Our motto
is "More people in one part of
the South means more business
In all parts of the South," and
we want more business. There
are in this country millions of
people who need the opportuni?
ties here and unused iu these
States Bast of the Mississippi
and South of the Ohio and
Potomac rivers, and we need
them. We need all who have
gone out from us ami many
more. Let us, therefore, adopt
this simple plan in which all
may have a part, in which there
is something definite to dp.
