Col Fttrrell,anonicmlof the immigration immigration bureau in New York, has made close study of the immigration question in all its phases, not only because it his business, but for the reason that is a humanitarian. In speaking of the immigration to a New York Press porter, he said: "The immigration ol this year will be greatly in except, ol that'of 1891, when "145,^0 aliens wen landed in this port. From present indications indications it is safe to surmise that 000 passengers will be received this year, notwithstanding that amost cure ful examination is made of every passenger passenger before landing. A feature o immigration is the extraordinary diversity diversity of the characteristics of those coming coming to tliee shores. This year almost every section and every religion of t habitable globe is represented, bringing with them the habits and customs of their native homes. we bread ration In a rattlesnake Bums the snake worse to have hih the of its made the of and the I have been looking iuto the ,ht here by all classes of money brought here by immigrants and I find that the average per capita of the Italians over twenty year* of age is *-9U,!H.
