B?eitkinp only ilia native language, he is ready in be made into a good American or into a dieturber. He knows practically nothing of our manners, our customs, our aims or our purposes. II i iiiitail is open to the inlluence that reaches him first. Before coining here he has been led to believe that ours is a country where gold is plenti fill mill is to be had for the ask ihg. IK< finds that gold is pleii tiful, bin that it is often dilHculi to obtain. Iiis disallusionment leaves a certain disappointment und resentment linking in his brain In this condition many of them encounter thut disturbing element of our population that is opposed to law and order und our established institutions! Their ears are filled with the vituperation und tiblisu that is continually heaped upon the government by the agitators. It llnds lodgment ami grows ami iu lime becomes a part of their daily liven. This results in the creation of additional disturbers und obstructionists. But this condition could be grout ly' obviated if the goverii. incut would adopt a system of Amuric?ui/.ation of foreigners coming to this country. A good way to begin would be to have u aihull pamphlet printed in the various languages and furnish u copy to each per sou *n In n In applies for a paste port. This could he handled by our American consuls. The monotony of the voyage could be enlivened by im opportunity to read in his native tongue of tin- country which he hopes to make his future homo This pamphlet could be bo written us to give the immi? grant a fair knowledge of w hat America is of the government? al protection he may expect if he becomes a good and law abiding citizen, of the various opportunities in the business world that me open to him, and of die snares and pitfalls that will be placed in Ins path by Ihose who seek the disruption of law and order and good gov. eminent. By thin means Ihe immigrant would be prepared iu advance to resist the blandishments of the disciples of disorder, und we believe it would go far to? ward Americanizing these im. migrants even before they reach our shores. Congress appears to he in fa vor of keeping the immigra? tion barn down. That means thai millions of foreigners will seek homes among uh, either enriching us by their value as good citizens, or causing us to regret that they were ever ad? mitted. When American olHcors and men went aboard ship fur Her vice in Krance they were promptly furnished with orders and pamphlets containing in? formation that would be of value to them during their ser? vice overseas. Those iu almost every case were thoroughly di? gested before the Hlnpa reached their destinations. It was a wise move. The same pulley adopted to ward immigrants boarding ships lot this country would be even more beneficial. If we are to admit these homo * 1.60 .7? IBookers from abroad wo should I begin at the start a thorough system of Amoricanisaiion? and tho start is the port of cm barkation. We want good citizens, und not obstructionists and destroy? ers. Honest toil is a tonic. Uo to it and brace up! If all men would learn to sew on buttons before mm riogn it might save u lot of family jars. The fellow who plays a cor? net is always a desirable neigh? bor? when lid is asleep. When a new gOw.il appeals to| a woman it is easy for the sales-1 lady to convince her it is a bar? gain. It is ?is<- to put your trust in (Jod, hut don't expect Hint to I dish up three meals a day while i you loaf on the job. It's true, though, that prohi? bition is creating it lot of tight? wads in this country. Nobody wants to divy up his little stock in reserve. Some of our prominent ftnnn ciers are advocating the mak? ing of another huge loan to En ropeun governments. W e haven't the slightest objection to such a course, provided the said financiers make the loans' from their own private fortunes | and leave the government funds ami other people's money safe? ly in this country.

Section for Colored People. The Uii; Stone (Jap correspon? dent of the Bristol Moral Courier in a recent issue of (lint paper say s there is a movement on foot here "lo allot certain sec? tions of the town to the colored men. This movement meets with the hearty approval of the Colored Men's Business League. Some one hundred lots will be gotten in shape, within the next thirty days, and sold at auction, ami the Colored Men's Business League u pluiiuiuu for a big day. Thin league has over loo members und ill slogan is 'Every colored man own bis own home.' The building as? sociation, financed by members of the b-ague, has purchased a large frame business building oil lower East Fifth ?Ireel, und hopes to make this (he center for its organization. The build lug association has already been the means of helping and en. cournging the purchase and building of bonus among the colored citizens." Wo believe this would be a good thing for the town in general and the colored folks, we are sure,would be bettor satisfied ami could no COinplish more if they Were in a section to themselves, ralhor than being scattered all over town as at present. Wo hope ibis movement will moot with success. To the Voters of the Town of Big Stone Gap.
