By the AMPtiatad NKW YORK Dec. OU Ellis Island, know a for rears as “the open door to the oppressed of every land and which has become the subject of a congressional inquiry by reason of its new character as a place of detention for hundreds of anarchists and other "dangerous" radicals, is really three small islands in New York harbor about one mile southwest of Manhattan. Their total area is approximately twenty acres. I poet the>e islands, known as No.’s I, 2 and 3. are nineteen large and small buildings of brick and stone, many of them handsome stru lures of four and five stories, used as the United States Immigration Station for this jwrt aud through which, from July I to December I last, nearly 80.000 aliens entered the I^and of Opportunity and Freedom. Hundreds of "undesirables. st should be stated, were a* the same time sent back to the lands of their birth. The immigration service here employs 372 workers including inspectors who board incoming ships. It seems aa incongruity that Ellis Inland which, in summer, gives the foreigner his first glimpse of the wonders of the New Worlds metropolis, a pleasing view of beautiful lawns and flowers, well-kep-buildings and a fin** harbor with the marvelous skyline of New York in the distance, should have metamorphosed during the war into a big detention place for political criminals and the foes of organized government. The fact is. Ellis Island, according to the authorities, was not intended as a prison for such offenders. Federal judges, in the past two years, acting under the authority vested in them, liberated 557 so-called "dangerous aliens" either upon their own recognizance or in the custody of their lawyers, according to Representative Isaac Siegel, a member of the house immigration committee which is investigating the red peril. During the same period 697 anarchists, bolshevists and other radicals have been sent from various parts of the I nited States t New* York Of this number So are now* in custody of Acting Immigration Com-mis>ioner Byron C». fbi. the successor to Frederic C. Howe, who until recently, and since IPI3 had served as commissioner. A representative of the Associated Press was p.-matted to make a tour of the Ellis Island buildings Nine hundred immigrants were being fed in the large dining hall ut the time. Not only did there appear to be an abundance of food of a wholesome kind, bur the tables and dishes were clean. Fresh white palier in long rolls was used as "table cloths.” The menus for breakfast, dinner and supper, for four successive days, for instance, showed the following variable die*:    Breakfast* Farina. corn mush, or boiled rice with milk: shewed prunes or peaches:    bread and butter (substitutei coffee. Dinner: Soup (split pea, farmer style, mock turtle. English beef, and lima beant Irish stew with vegetables; baked codfish a la Italian; French roast with bordlaise sauce kidney stew with rice coldslaw; bread and butter (substitute t; rice or liberty pudding:    coffee. Supper; Salis bury steak with onion sauce; roast beef hash with green peppers; ham with macaroni; baked pork and beans; bread and butter (substitute); apple sauce or blackberry jelly; tea or coffee. It should be understood that the menus given constituted the variety for more than three meals. An interesting feature of the dining hall was a “kosher” table set apart for the Orthodox Jews. The aliens are fed by a general contractor who is allowed a profit of 5 per cent above cost by the government. According to Commissioner Chi. meals have been served for as low a price as 22 cents and recently for 36 cents. When the immigrants arrive at Ellis Island, after having undermentioned on Page Eight.)
