THE BTJFF.AXO ENQTJIBEE: WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 1894. DE BARRY ON , IMMIGRATION. He Discourses on the Stone and Lockwood Bills Now Before the House. STONE'S BILL IS -USELESS. ligh Praise For Dan Lockwood's ' Measure Intended to Stop Pauper Invasion. SOME VERY INTERESTING FACTS. The legislators at Washington are thinking hard Just now on the subject of lm-nEkr-ation. It U recognized by alll that steps must e taken at once to secure a better grade of Immigrants and keep out the acouringa of European slums which are now filling the country. Two bills having this end in view are now before Congress. One is "An act designed to secure a better grade of immigrants, introduced in the House of Representatives by Representative William A. Stone of Pennsylvania." The other is "An act for the necessary and better protection of -American labor and enforcement of the law of domicile and the restriction of immigration," introduced in the House of Representatives by Representative Daniel N. Lockwood of New York. . . Congressman Stone's bill is an original one' Intended to get at the root of the evil: It foUows in full: Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled. That no alien immigrant shall be admitted within the United States unless he or she shall exhibit to the United States Inspectors of arriving- immigrants at the place of admission a certificate signed by the United States Consul or other authorized representative of the UniTSa States at the place nearest where said immigrant last resided. setting forth that the said Consul or other United States representative has made an investigation concerning said immigrant and that said immigrant does not belong to the class or classes of alien" Immigrants excluded from admission Into the United States under the provisions of the Act of Congress approved March 3, 189L entitled. "An act In amendment to the various acts relative to immigration and the importation of aliens under contract or agreement to perform labor, its amendments or supple ments, or ty any other law of the United States that now exists or may hereafter be passed. Said Immigrants shall, in addition, conform to all present requirements or jaw. It shall be the duty of United States consuls and United States representatives In other countries to investigate and grant or wiinnoia certificates, as shall be disclosed on investigation under the directions and Instructions of the State Department, according to the laws of the United States as aforesaid. Sec 2. That this Act shall take effect from and after the first day of January. anno Domini, eighteen hundred and ninety- five. The Judiciary Committee of the House reported favorably on the bill, as will be seen by the following extracts: "The purpose of this bill is to prevent the criminals and paupers of Europe from being sent here as immigrants. Statistics show - that much too large a proportion of the ' immigrants now coming here are in capable of self-support. By the last census. the per cent, of persons born in foreign countries Is 14.77 per cent, and yet this census shows that 26 per cent. ' of the white prisoners confined In Jails nd simple prisons are -persons of foreign birth. The total number of white convicts ' in our penitentiaries whose birth-place ia known, is 28,440, composed of 13,715 native born and 14,725 foreign born, showing that more than one-half of all our white convicts are of foreign birth. Our benevolent institutions contain 69,962 inmates by the last census of which the foreign born compose 14 per cent. The total number of the white Inmates of our poorhouses is 53,696, of which number 27,648. or a little over 61 per cent., were born in foreign countries. These statistics show that with a foreign population of 1177 per cent., more than half of our white penitentiary convict9 and more than half of the white Inmates of our poorhouses are foreigners, and prove that of the immigrants coming here during the past few years, too many of them are deficient in morals, and are incapable physically of self-support. "Foreign countries not only encourage Immigration of criminals and pau pers, but use public money to pay their expenses here. This fact seems to be a sufficient reason why so large a percentage of Immigrants so soon find themselves in our prisons and poorhouses. The .means adopted have been found lolly Inadequate to keep out of the coun- Y xnose reauy mciuuea in me eiciuaea i. The superintendent of immigration 'tes that during the six months ending :..v31, 1893, 183,028 immigrants arrived, and f A t them were debarred as falling withi- t ( ViHt vnlnrt1 hv th a lflv Tm than r'one per tent. The examination on the ar- be wholly insufficient to determine whether the immigrant belongs to the excluded class nnt and irr manv instances where the Immigrant has made the long Journey to the place of examination and, perhaps, has Vita all In thA linrl Artftfclncr vm. bility. and he la admitted. Under the present system the immigrant's word " has to be taken- for most of the inquiries and there is no means of refuting him if he answers untruthfully. This change strikes at no nationality but simply at that class of Incapables of all nations who can only be a burden to us and whose moral 'and social influence can do us much harm." - -." tEBARRTS OPINION. In spite of the action of the Judiciary Committee. Immigrant Inspect John R. De Barry, who has studied the subject thoroughly, declares the bill to be utterly use less. Said he to an Enquirer reporter: "The bill cannot be enforced if carried out. It would be simply impossible for the consuls to Investigate the circumstances of every person wanting to come to America. '- Take Ireland for Instance. There are three consuls on that island, one at Belfast, one at Queenstown, and another, at Dublin. How could those three men make an Investigation . concerning every Irish Immigrant? A, hundred times that number of consuls could not do it.' We want no laws that cannot be enforced. "In the second place the bill Is useless because Congressman Lockwood 8 bill covers the whole ground and cannot be bet tered. It will be passed almost unanimously by the House. I have been assured that not 10 members will vote against It. -v "In Lockwood's bill cemes the whole Question of Immigration. It discriminates ncro tn t no race, creed or nationality, and - while not adding to the excluded classes. does provide means for securing a better of immigrants. "I believe the bill to be of no use what ever. Mr. Stone evidently does not know bis subject." DR.

The melting of the heavy snows of last week over the greater portion of the State, while causing some delay In spring plowing, seeding, etc., ia by many deemed to have Insured abundant crops for the coming season.

In the warmer sections most of the oats have been sown. and early potatoes piantea. tianey sowing ts about finished in Orleans County, and the greater part of a large acreage of peppermint has been set m Wayne County. In some parts of St. Lawrence County, the long cold and dry spell ia thought to have Injured grass somewhat, and some meadows in Dutchess County look thin and have a slow growth, but the late warm rains will probably bring about more favorable conditions in these sections. "In the earlier counties fruit trees are Kso-tTYTvinir tr blossom and. with the excep tion of early peaches, the outlook Is very promising.

The managers of New Jersey Jockey Club have leased the old Jerome Park race track and will be gin a meeting there July 4. The racing ' will continue four days on alternate days with Brighton Beach.

Sir Thomas Esmonds has elven notice that in the - House of Commons tomorrow he will ask the gov ernment to give Its' consent to the annex ation of the Saxnoan Islands to New Zealand, the Samoans themselves having re peatedly given expression to their approval of such administration of their govern ment. , GERMANY WOULD NOT PERMIT IT. Berlin. April 25. It is stated on authority of the Foreign Office that Germany will not permit the annexation of Same to New Zealand, which act would be a flag rant violation of the Berlin treaty. Germany herself is unable to take over the Islands without approval of the Reich stae and the present composition of that body makes -such action on the part of Germany extremely doubtful.

Charges of "Gross Deceit and rRaud in Obtaining My Ser-I vices "The Other Side. TALKING ABOUT A LIBEL SUIT New' York, April 25. Lillian Russell ad ded another score yesterday to her record as a i contract breaker, and served notice onMfHnr. Canary and Lederer that she considered that they had violated their contract with her. I Manager Lederer says she has adopted a weak subterfuge to get away, and that he has been advised by counsel that she can't ! get away. She generally does, though. She has sent Canary , and Lederer a let ter. In which ; she says that her contract was made with Thomas Canary and George W. Lederer as a firm. Now she has found that no such firm exists, Lederer having testified In a court of record yesterday in a supplementary proceeding to that effect, and that Ida Florine Lederer Is the principal In the firm that signed with her. This she regards as, "gross deceit and fraud in obtaining my services." She is willing to sign with Mr. Canary to complete the second season. ending June 22. Otherwise she won't play any more. She will play until Saturday to oblige Mr. Canary, he being In Michigan. Mr. , Lederer said last night that the offer of a 5 per cent, better contract with Abbey & Grau is what is the matter with Miss Russell and that she has been trying to get away for three months. He thinks of suing her for libel for say ing "gross fraud and deceit," and he proposes to give her all the law there W if she breaks her contract. The contract, he says, was made With the firm of Canary & Lederer, proprietors of the opera company of which firm I he is a member.! ' He testified that he was not a member of the firm which holds the-lease of the Casino, which is another affair. " I BANKER HELMS TRIAL Ex-Cashier Arnold Brought From Prison to Testify Against Him.
