There were prepaid Italian tickets sold. Only about 470 of this number were sold in blank, the rest being filled in with the names of passengers. Scotch immigrants generally went to Pennsyl- vania, and the Italians to New York. About one-third of the Italians return to Italy for the Christinas season. They come here with a pack, but sometimes require half a dozen trunks on their home journey. They return in the spring. James Savrey, of the American Emi- grant Company, testified that his com- pany has settled familes in the West. The company now does only an exchange and prepaid ticket business. Their agents, who aro scattered through- out Sweden, 'Denmark and Xorway, so- licit immigration. While not chartered for banking business, the concern had at times large sums on hand for .their transmission. Coroner Levy, president of the Jewish Emigrant Protection Society, stated that a majority the Jewish emigrants came here from Russia and Poland, and a mi- nority from Germany, but all the Jew- ish emigrants compared favorably with those from other countries. As presi- dent of the society be came in contact with Polish and Russian Jews princi- pally. Between and of these classes came over in the past year. Inasmuch as they were persecuted in Europe on account of their religious be- lief, his society endeavors to assist them. They do not encourage emigrants to come here. Fifty per cent, of all the Jewish emigrants who came here last year will be naturalized citizens in ten years. Most all carae to make a home here. _______________ FIFTY-FIKSTJOONGICESS.
