Japamese Immigration. Gratification is expressed as a result of thfe "experiment in immigration con trol" as affecting the Japanese, consti--! tuted by law, proclamations and regu lations following the anti-Japanese agitation in California several years ago. There has been a material reduction in both the number of Japanese ad mitted and deported. In 1908, 9544 Japanese wrere admitted to continental United States and 8694 to Hawaii, while for 190S the corresponding figures arc 2432 and 1493. The number admitted: to the mainland and Hawaii was only about 25 percent and 17 percent, re spectively, of the numbers for 190S. Gklscsc Increase. Contrary to the general impression Chinese admitted to the United States have increased during the past four years and Mr. Keefe is pessimistic re garding the operation of the law. He concludes that the system of exclu sion and expulsion afforded by It is but illy adopted for either purpose. It Is urged that the exclusion law be merged into the general Immigra tion law, so that the administrative proceeds of expulsion therein provided mav be used. There are also a number of other recommendations which the commis sioner says may be considered revolu tionary, but are regarded as necessary if the law is to be effective and satis factory. During 1909, 6393 Chinese were regu larlv admitted against 4624 in 1908, 3255 in 1907 and 2732 in 1906. The worst feature, the commissioner sajTs, is that the ircrease is almost con fined to classes, the members of which are or soon become laborers and whose residence here violates the spirit of the law. Inunijrrailoa Normal A sain. Immigration, which during 1909, fell off from the two previous years, the commissioner says, is reassuming nor mal proportions. The months of Janu ary to June, 1909, however, showed in creases over the same months of 190S which is attributed by the commis sioner principally- to the fact that those interested In steerage passenger carrying have traded upon and magnified beyond all reasonable limits the Improvement In industrial condi tions to encourage emigration. As to occupations, 174,800 unskiled laborers of the Immigrant class en tered, and 118,930 of the emigrant class departed. Of the 751.7S6 immigrant aliens who entered the United States during the year 88,393 were "trader 1 and 38,517 were 45 or over. Of those over 13 years of age 191,049 could neither read nor write, an increase in the ratio of illiteracy to 29 percent, as against 26 percent in 1908. For vari ous reasons 10,411 aliens were de ported. Scarcity of Farm Help. Reference Is made again to the in teresting and important economic prob lem arising from the fact that a very large proportion ofiL immigration is coming from southern and eastern Eu rope, those countries furnishing about 67 percent of the immigrants. The continuance of this preponderance la declared to be a question concerning every patriotic citizen, for It is staiecr there can be "little homogenity between people of that section and the real American. I A distribution of more than 5000 per sons was effected during the 15 months ended June, 1909, through the opera tions of the divisions of Information, of whom 2565 were sent to agricul tural communities. The division Is di recting Its efforts toward a practical solution of the problem of the scarcity of farm help. Particular care has been taken to direct no men to work where they might be used to replace labor al ready employed. The field of activity comprised 40 states and one territory. There were issued during the year 37,337 certificates of naturalization, an excess of 11.S20 over the preceding year. The four states in which the principal work of naturalization was. transacted being New York, Pennsyl vania, Illinois and Massachusetts. Calisliei Store to Add Eio Grande Bank Space to Its Floor.

I wrote you some time ago, giving you an account of my sufferings with, an awful case of Catarrh. I had all the symp toms which accompany this disease, such as mucus dropping back into the throat, a constant desire to "hawk and spit," feeling of dryness in the throat, cough, and spitting upon arising, scabs forming in the nose which, required much effort to blow out, sometimes causing my nose to bleed and leaving me with a headache. I had thus suffered for five years, all the time trying different local treatments of inhalations, snuffs, douches, etc., with no real good effect. Of course I was greatly discouraged. As soon as I heard from you I commenced S. S. S. as you advised and after using it a short while noticed a change for the better. I continued to take it believing the trouble was in the blood, and S. S. S. made a permanent cure for me. I am now entirely free from Catarrh. JTJDSON A. BELLAM. 224 Randolph St., Richmond, Va. The symptoms Mr. Bellam describes in his case of Catarrh are familiar to every one who suffers with this disease. For five years he had endured the discomfort and suffering, and was greatly discouraged as one treatment after another failed to cure him. When at last he realized that Catarrh is a blood disease, he knew that the r former treatments had been wrong, and only a blood purifier like 'S. SL S. could produce permanent good results. Catarrh is not merely an affection of the mucous membranes; it is a deep-seated blood disease in which the entire circulation and greater part of the system are involved. It comes from impurities accumulat ing in the circulation, and as the blood goes to every portion of the body the catarrhal matter irritates and inflames the different mucous surfaces and tissues causing an unhealthy and inflammatory discharge, and producing the other well known symptoms of the trouble. The failure of local treatment to produce permanent good results in Catarrh is due entirely to the fact that such measures do not reach the cause of the trouble. Temporary relief and comfort may often be had by using some douche or inhalation, but no cure can be effected until the blood is purified of the irritating cause. S. S. S. cures Catarrh by cleansing the blood of all impure catarrhal matter, and at the same time building up the system by its unequalled tonic effects. It goes down into the circulation and removes every trace of foreign matter or impurity. In other words S. S. S. cures Catarrh by purifying the blood so that the mucous surfaces and linings of the body are all sup plied with healthy blood instead of being irritated and diseased from a continual satu ration of catarrhal im purities. Then the inflammed and irritated membranes heal, the discharge is checked, the head noises all cease, the stomach is toned up, the throat is no longer clogged with phlegm, but every annoying symptom of the disease is corrected. There is but one way to cure Catarrh purify the, blood, and there is but one absolutely safe and sure blood purifier S. S. S. We have a special book on Catarrh; we will send this book, and also any special medical advice desired free to all who write. THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO.. ATLANTA. GA.

A nifty newel post mat has been erected at the Oregon street entrance of the -walk that is being laid along the south side of the federal building might well be marked with a bronze plate the inscription on its face read ing: "This marks a milestone In the history of El Paso. This tablet was placed in the year which saw the be gining of the concrete era." This post is but the first glimpse of a bit of decoration that the government is adding to the federal building prop erty. The walk way extends to the property line and connects with one opening onto Mesa avenue, making a passageway from Oregon to Mesa. The walk on the government property is a -wide one and has a retaining wall on the federal building side upon which Is to be erected an art metal fence to correspond with that which rnns along the driveway at the rear of the build ing. This driveway is to be extended to the south to the walk and will be paved with brick to correspond to the reeniainder of the drive. BIG- DEALS IN MEXICO LANDS Mexican lands, especially timber lands in the state of Durango, and the cattle grazing lauds cf Sonora are proving good holdings and better buys these days. As the center of the Mexican land and timber operation, the real es tate men of this city keep a close line on operations in the republic and are able to forcast conditions with accur acy. One firm of El Paso dealers stated today that the Interest in Mexican lands was keen at present. The railroads are realizing the present and future value of such holdings when obtained at a nominal cost and are making an effort to round up as much of the property as possible. A number of timber and cattle graz ing land deals are in progress at the present time with El Paso agents act ing as the middle man between the buy er and holders of those valuable lands. Nothing definite has yet been announced but at least two deals of more than usual Importance are expected this week. LIGHT FIXES IMPOSED IN POLICE COURT Mary Adams and Mabel Butts, two negresses, were arrested Tuesday night charged with vagrancy and their cases will be heard In police court this even ing. Doc Regan, charged with being drunk, disturbing the peace and assault, was fined ?3 on the drunk charge, no one being present to press the assault charges. I John Dey, who said he had been en gaged as a traveling salesman for a New York silk house, but lost the posi tion two months ago, was fined $5 when he pleaded guilty to tile charge of vagrancy in police court tills morn ing. He will be given' an opportunity to leave towiu "THE GINGERBREAD MAX Good fairs. I ask you to do me a great favor bring the people of El Paso cheaper water rates. I have been out sleighing in my auto mobile I "sleighed" three children and a policeman. Ee laughs best who laughs last, but he who laughs first. Is sure of his. I love my patent leathers, but oh you undressed kid (this to a girt . t:ghts). I am not as old as I look. No, you couldn't us anc still live. Gee. but you're a dancer; you ought to belong to the St. Vitus club. I knew that was Russel of lier skirt. Lillian by the Every William has his little Tell; every milkman has his little well. This is a sample of some of the lines from "The Gingerbread Man." which kept on audience in a roar of laughter of the piece, is a dancer par excelence half hours last night. l that Albu- laughter as anything in the show. But js work throughout the action of the day is a roar: his every action is funny and every time he opens his mouth, the audience gets a chance to rip off a button somewhere. Vrohman, as the fairy queen, is a scream. He reminds one of Ben Levy because he is so different Vrohman wears the costume of a ballet dancer and looks as much like one as a livery stable, horse, but he is funny and not rough about it, at least not very. Rose Murray, the little soubret, is pretty enough to eat. If the show was called "The Gingerbread Girl" and she was the girl, there would be no ginger bread giri in a little while, for some body would surely eat her. The singing by Garrlck Major was splendid, and his acting was also good. Helen Keers as Jack Horner, has a splendid Voice, especially in the high register, and she is also good looking and a clever actress. 3ut there is no fault to find with any member of the company; on the con trary, it is a performance that can be commended to any community as one worthy of patronage, splendid, clean and wholesome. TROUBADOURS TOXIGHT. A srenuine colored show, the only one i . .. . . . i ii x, querque manager will always give us ot tne season, win oe ine attraction at tips as good as the one he handed out the El Paso tonight. The Ethiopion iruuiliuiuuia, a. K.Jii.t.ya.i.kj t ui -u tvii- ored singers, dancers and ' comedians, with their own barld and orchestra will appear. The price Is 50c to all parts of thefkouse, with the entire balcony re served for the colored people. Seats are on sale at the Crawford. through the columns of The Herald yesterday, the theatergoers will thank him. He gave the tip that the show pleased the Albuquerque people better than "The Three Twins." The same goes here. El Pasoans have not had a musical comedy in many a day that' pleased better; too bad it was here for but one night only. "The Gingerbread Man" ought really to have pleased a dyspeptic Starting in rather a tame manner, it gradually worked up until It got better and bet ter; if It had kept on for another hour John Fisher would have been carried home and others would have needed mustard plasters for their sides; it was so full of laughs that it tickled like sealskin underwear with the hairy side turned in. , The songs were In most cases sung by people who unow how to sing and who have voices that are not the worse for wear; the Amazon marches and chorus drills are splendid; the girls are for the most part pretty and the cos tumes are near and fitted to shapely figures. The Gingerbread cadets in the last act put up one of the most per fect drills ever seen on an El Paso stage and they won round after round of applause In their silent zouave move ments. They were attired in beautiful, well .fitting military coatumes that added much to their appearance. The Moon Song by Miss Helen Keers, as Jack Horner, and Miss Inez Girard (the latter in the moon), was a feature that would do credit to thebest show on the road or off; the mechanical effects are very clever and It took three en cores. It was a beautiful piece of work, the chorus costumed beautifully and the scenery and light effeqts most pic turesque and artistic. Wally Helston, the gingerbread man of thep lece, is a dancer par excellence whatever that Is and if his brain is as quick as his feet, he is in danger of a hot box i nhis think tank. He also got off some good comply. The real comedy work of the show, however, is divided between Ross Snow, as "Wondrous "Wise, and Lute Vrohman as "the good fairy queen." Snow does a turn with cute little Rose Murray, the Margery Daw of the piece. Miss Murray as a mechanical doll, that brings as much applause and causes as much "THE RED MILL." An attraction that will surely arouse the "keenest interest here will be the presentation of the new Blossom and Herbert comic opera, "The Red Mill," by ?Jartin & Emery Co.'s organization, which will be seen at the El Paso on I Saturday and Sunday, February 19 and 20. "With a record of one entire year on THE CRAWFORD. The Bailey Stock company is pleas ing large houses with the rural com edy "Sweet- Clover." The same bill will run all week, with a Saturday matinee.
