IMMIGRATION AND THE PANAMA CANAL.
"Approximately 500,000 European immigrants will land on the
Pacific coast within a year after the Panama canal is completed.
More than 500,000 transportation tickets have already been sold.
One line alone is equipped to take care of 100,000 immigrants. More
than 1,50*1 agents of one steamship company are working throughout
Europe selling transportation to the Pacific coast on the installment
plan. The difference in fare from European ports to ports of em
barkation on the Atlantic and Pacific seaboard is $30 to the Pacific
coast as aiiainst $20.fi0 to the Atlantic.
"In order to take care of the hordes of people who will come
here when the canal is completed, a government immigration station
—a reproduction of Ellis Island—should be established on Puget
Sound, for this is the country to which, because of its advantageous
climatic conditions and creat agricultural resources, most of the im
migrants will come. This is more vital than many people hero realize
tind another vitally important thing is to see that the immigration
is of the right character. * * * There are 2,100.000 acres of
arable land in the state of Washington which should be cleared nnd
made available for the coming hordes. Otherwise Second avenue will
teem with immigrants, with their packs on their hacks, looking- for
a sweatshop. The people of Seattle should immediately take steps to
see that they get the right kind of immigrants—the kind that will
make the soil productive and add to the general prosperity of the
state and at the same time build up it much better class of citizens.
There is no room in Seattle for the unskilled laborer, and as there
are comparatively few industrial plants on Puget Sound there is little
use for the skilled laborer from foreign countries. If the eomim:
aliens are sent into the sweatshops they will become dissatisfied with
their conditions and develop anarehial and socialistic tendencies.
Placed on the land, they wll he eonteuted and happy, have a stake in
the country and build up the very best kind of citizenship.
"There is no longer any doubt as to the number of immigrants.
The main thing is to satisfactorily settle them after they arrive, and
to see that every promise made to them is lived up to. * * *
Owing to misrepresentations of various kinds, we have lost the im
migrants from \orthern Europe, who are now flocking to South
Africa and South America. They are being replaced by aliens of a
lower type of intelligence and the result is a far greater amount of
illiteracy. Fifteen years ago the percentage of illiterates among im<
migrants was from 1 to 4 per cent. The percentage of illiterates
among arriving aliens today is from 20 to 70 per cent. • * *
I'nless some provision is made to take care of the immigrants upon
their arrival here, the streets of Seattle will be swamped with people
who know not where they are goinsr. nor what they intend to do.
Their predilection will be to bunt for a sweatshop, but if the proper
forethought is jriven the matter they can be converted into good citi
zens who will add to the general prosperity of the state."
The above words are not the "mouthings of a fanatical labor
agitator" but the utterances of a man high in the world of finance—
a member of the syndicate that backed the Pacific Terminal company
in its efforts to establish terminal docks in Seattle—Mr. Charles Fenri.
Mr. Fenn belongs to a class that is interested in seeincr an immense
population on the Pacific coast. It means business to his syndicate
and his class. But the writer sees the danger in a wholesale exodus
from Southern Europe of an illiterate, dependent class of immigrants.
How much more should the workers on this coast be alive to the
ianger that threatens when the Panama canal shall be opened to
traffic? Certain interests are trying to lull us to sleep by the as
sertion that the immigrants will flock to the land, engaging in agri
culture and adding to the wealth and prosperity of the state. We
greatly fear that, this part of the program will be more imaginary
than real. Coming to our shores without money, without friends,
with no knowledge of our language or of our customs, the probability
is that they will become easy prey to the blandishments of the un
scrupulous employers of labor who see in the incoming horde a wealth
of cheap labor. Our American standard of living, our wage scbedules
and our hours of employment mean less than nothing to the em
ploying class Labor conditions arc obtained and held not because
of that class but in spite of it. Eternal vigilance, constant agitation
and organization are necessary if labor is to hold the standard of liv
ing it has built up on the coast against the onslaught of capital which
will surely come when the labor market becomes congested with the
immigrants from Southern Europe. Organized labor must be in the
forefront of the preparation to meet the new conditions which will
arise on this coast within two or three years time. Congress must
be besieged to pass a stringent educational and illiteracy test for im
migrants at the next session of congress. The great body of unor
ganized workmen in the woods and mills and factories of this state
must be organized for their own protection and ours. Public senti
ment must be aroused to the peril in an unrestricted immigration to
this coast. The time is short. Every man and woman in the ranks
of organized labor must resolve to do bis or her part in the work that
must be done to hold fast to that which has been gained throtitrh toil
and sacrifice against the oncoming wave of European pauper labor.

SCHOOL CHILDREN FOR
TEDDY.
If Everett's school kiddles could
have decided the national election,
Theodore Roosevelt would have been
the next president. Several of the. city
schools held regular elections for pres
ident and there was nothing to it but
the Rough Rider. Never mind, when
the kids grow up, chances are that
Roosevelt will still be running.
Election is over. We are not all
satisfied. We couldn't all win. Some
body had to lose. But there isn't a
reason on earth why we shouldn't lay
aside the hammer and get in and boost
for old Everett. Our homes are here,
our business and our jobs. We are
not going to quit the town, so let's get
in together and make it a pleasant
place in which to live.
One wag remarked as the national
returns were coming in: "Four years
ago Roosevelt made Taft president
and now he's unmaking him. Bet a
plugged dime that Taft isn't saying
'The Lord gave and the Lord taketh
away.' "
