ROB CREAMERY SAFE LAST NIGHT Exodus of Aliens Due to Prohibition, Says Solon/ ! Open Safe by Pounding Lock With Hammer—Escape with $30 Cash !—Creamery Robbed jBeforel Big Increase In Emigration Over Im. migration -Is Shown by Ellis Island Records. ! Kew York, March 12.—Prohibition Is causing so many foreign born to leave' the ynited States, according to Con-" gresstnaa Isuac Slegel, n member of the house immigration committee, that .emigration is exceeding immigration. Ellis -Island records- show that immigration since January 1 totaled f>3,- 000, while 61,000 left the country. Most jnf the latter have gone back to Poland and Czecho-Siovakla to stay. From the signing of the armistice un- |til January 1 Immigration and etnigra- taon were about equal, approximating 275,000. In January 23,000 persons landed here from"abroad and 24,000 left the country. In February 22,000 arrived and '25,000 departed. This inonth the excess of emigration is on the increase, 12,000 having left the country and 8,000 having arrived. It Is. estimated that the figures for the •wHole month will be 36,000 departures and 24-.000 arrivals. While^a desire to live in rejuvenated home lands- is a facfbr In emigration, Mr. Siegel believes that, prohibition is ie principal reason. Inability to buy T or wine, he says, has created considerable 111 feeling amone foreign- born residents, particularly in mining dJetrlcte. Burglars were again busy in Car- bo-ndale last night. They entered the office of the iCairhondale Creamery and robbed the safe'of about $30 in money. The safe.was opened by pounding the lock with a hammer. This •makes the second time within the last iew months that the creamery has been burglarized. , They entered the office' by prying back the lock on the door. It is presumed they were familiar with the safe and around the creamery or were . biurjglians exacting -to .make a thig j haul from a safe robbery. The authorities have found no trace of the thieves.
