Defiance Weekly Express (Newspaper) - October 4, 1907, Defiance, Ohio Country solely according to whether he produces More of material or of morality than he consumes. He May produce very Little yet if his wants Are less than that Little he is still a profitable investment for the nation. He May on the other hand apparently 1,001,756, immigrants last year More than ten per cent. Were Over the age limit and a great proportion brought their wives. About so per cent May be classed As workers. But in another sense they were All workers. There were no idlers scarcely one who produce millions yet if he consumes would shirk his duty. And As to their More than that or if he undermines j morality the average is certainly our standards of morality or if he j Good. These immigrants Are placed is found to produce actually much upon a probation for three years less than he apparently produces he should they get into trouble in this May be a great source of loss in spite time they Are liable to be deported. Of his prominence and Power. Last year there were for All causes the people understand this Well j less than 1,200 deported. I question it is their habitual application of this if our native born population can show in Many circles throughout the coun j fences by stiletto. We even identify try there is in Progress a serious discussion As to the advisability of curbing the immigration flood. This naturally has led up to the question of the immigrant his value or his menace and his position in the social machine. The new York Herald has invited opinions on the subject and presents the views of three men who May reason ably be said to have studied the situation. We reproduce them below by Sidney a. Reeve. Former professor of steam and Hydraulic engineering at Worcester polytechnic Institute and lecturer at Harvard. Current conversation and the periodical press Are full of condemnation of our lax restriction of immigration. All the evils to which our country is heir Are explained by the a undesirable the italians roughly with the Black hand system of blackmail. The South italians Are but a Small fraction of All immigration the class of crimes to which they Are prone is a minor one in our criminal records the blackmail extorted by the Black hand is but a drop in the bucket compared with the volume of extortion currently practice by american business men within and without the Law against american born victims. Viewing the situation broadly there is no decisive evidence pointing to the criminality of the average immigrant. There is much pointing to his superiority Over the average native american to Industry sobriety and the patient toleration of Adverse conditions without outbreak. Indeed the most decided evidence on this Point new economic try Square to men in the Public Eye which is now making Mil lion arism so uncomfortable. What is immigration Worth to which class then belongs the average immigrant is he a producer or a Diss Pator of net wealth and morality if the former what is our immigrant Worth net to the nation the Law says that a dead male adult constitutes a loss of $5,000 to his family. In this it strikes a rough average and draws no distinction of any sort Between individuals. So it is hard to get at it in that Way. The average adult male immigrant and half of our immigrants Are of this sort earns at least $300 per annul soon after his arrival. Rather that is what he is paid. My estimates have led me to state elsewhere that his actual productivity is from three to four times that amount the balance going to pay the Cost of doing a a business with what he produces and consumes. But the Benefit of this doubt will be left for the present to the opposition. The right will be reserved however to class All immigrants under this figure for the majority of them have been Here Long enough to expand their income beyond $300. That is to. Say most of those who were classed As children at the time of entry Are now adults. Of the women some Are offset in their a productivity by the men who earn More than $300 the rest Are producing More than that value in the form of children. $5,000000,000 per annul. During the last 20 years some 16,-000,000 or 17,000,000 immigrants have arrived. The exact figure does not matter for All we wish is an estimate of the number now alive and working and Many who came before 1887 Are that. If these people Are producing an average of $300 Worth of goods and children apiece their current productivity is now $5,000,000,000 per annul. This is 200 times As much As our new automobiles Cost us last year. This enormous fund of current income we should have lost had we rigidly excluded immigration in 3887. How much capital do these immigrants embody not in their pockets or Bank accounts but in their strength of body and character assume that out of the 17,000,000 aliens arrived since 1887 10,000,000 Are now adult males. For each of these that you kill his family can collect from you by Law $5,000. He must be Worth at least half that. That is to say we have got from Europe during the last two decades for nothing a working machine which capitalizes at from 25,000,000,000 to 50,000,-000,000. This figure agrees fairly Well with our estimate of the animal productivity of this great human machine. But the exactness of the figures does not matter. It is Plain that however they catching the Wolf. Grandmas Story of her adventure when a girl. A bowl pm ii a better record. The modern immigrant of to Day it seems to me is greatly misunderstood. We have a great Deal of talk about the menace of the immigrant from the South of Europe. A few decades ago most of the immigrants came from Ireland while Germany ranked second and great Britain third. Italy and Russia sent comparatively few. Today the situation is practically reversed. Last year we received 267,000 from Italy 192,000 from Russia and but 24,000 from Ireland and 30,000 from Germany. From Austria and Hungary some 292,000 reached our shares. It is unfair to say that the North of Europe is no longer represented. But Are the immigrants from the Southern countries dangerous or undesirable the statistics of crime do not prove it. The italian is a hard worker. We should remember that the latin people were highly civilized when the North of Europe was peopled with Savages. The Southern countries May not have progressed of late but the impulse is still there and with unlimited opportunities of America before them who can Tell what they May not accomplish in the future As to pauper labor. A great Deal of the misunderstanding is due to the use of that term pauper labor. I have estimated mat every immigrant in coming to America spends on an average from $80 to $100 for transportation. This includes his fare from his Home to the Point of departure the crossing of the Atlantic and the Railroad fare to his destination. In other words they spend upward of $100,000,000 a year in search of work. Let us suppose for Sake of argument that Russia suddenly held out great opportunities for Money making so that americans by the million were attracted there. It seems to me that 1,000,000 native born citizens might have some difficulty in raising $100,000,000 for transportation. And in addition this army of incomers carried with them More than $20,000,000 in Cash. There is of course urgent need of the restriction of immigration but such restriction is already in Force. The Laws governing the situation Are very rigid they have been devised by intelligent men familiar with the situation working in sympathy with these people As Well As in the Best interests of the country. And the Laws Are being enforced. As the need for further restriction occurs it will receive due attention. Meanwhile the demand for labourers throughout the country is very urgent. The immigrants Are adding hundreds of millions of dollars to the wealth of America while they help themselves to a broader and More prosperous life. Alice had just been to the zoo. She was telling grandma All about her trip. Among other things she told about a great big Wolf she had seen. A did i Ever Tell you about the wicked Wolf that nearly made a meal of me a a no no a cried Alice excitedly her eyes big and round. Snuggling up to grandma she whispered a do Tell me about it please almost the trap. Like Little red Riding Hood Wasny to it grandma smiled. A very like a said she a Only or. Wolf did no to catch any one. A Many years ago your great Grandfather and great grandmother and myself lived in a wild country just beyond a great Forest. There was no other House for Miles around. Indeed you Call our dwelling a House As it was merely a rough log Cabin. A one Day i was out watching our few sheep at pasture when i espied a big Wolf slyly coming from the Woods. A calling to the sheep we All ran helter shelter to the barn. Fortunately we Hadnot far to go but we had hardly reached shelter before the Wolf arrived. A now father used a rope with a Pulley to draw things to the loft of the barn which was the Best place for storage we had. The noose on the end of this rope dangled before a great Hole in the door. A the Wolf Rose on his Hind legs and looked Over the door. Seeing nothing Uze amp Ca. A my pm we to tax it was a hot sultry afternoon at the end of july. All the morning the Sun had shone pitilessly on the Dusty pavements and slate roofs of the Busy town and now the very paving stones were hot and everyone went limply about his work and remarked Ca the intense heat of the Day. In the Center of one of the meet crowded pavements in one of the busiest thoroughfares of London trotted a Little Black and Tan dog. His eyes were strained and bloodshot and White foam dropped from his Mouth As he went along glancing furtively from Side to Side in search of a drop of water to moisten his parched Tongue. No one took any notice of the Little animal except to move hastily out of its Way or to cry to each other that the dog was mad but he was too Small to cause much fear and for the most part he slipped unnoticed through the crowd Only pausing now and then to sniff the Dusty Gutter or to try and Cool his Tongue against the Sun baked Kerbs one. A retriever dog passed within a Yard of him and disappeared Down a turning not a stones throw from where he Lay. Presently he reappeared with water dripping from his shining Black muzzle and the Little dog groaned in envy. Another dog passed by with dry Tongue hanging from Between hi3 Teeth and then he too returned with sprightly air and moistened lips. Another and yet another. Our Little dog Art in the Home Beautiful things shown profusion. In at no time has the housewife had the Opportunity to make her dwelling so perfect in appointments. Case for the handkerchief.

The steady increase in criminality Grants he americans Are the most criminal being three or four times As bad As the average of the rest and ten times As had As the poles and hungarians. We do not conclude from this too hastily that America is Ultra criminal. But we quote it to signify that he who seeks statistical support for anti immigration views doing it in sincerity and breadth is Apt to meet with sour Comfort. Which has now become unquestioned is attributed to this a a overflow of the undesirables from the older countries and these countries Are accused of collusion with the steamship companies toward a promotion of the volume of migration. That portion of our citizens which is interested in the labor Market is in chronic rebellion against tills influx of cheap labor destined to compete upon an in american basis with american labor. Those of us who Are interested in purity of politics see in the inflowing torrent a current Supply of corruptible upon whose votes political machines May he reared and supported. It on every Side arises this denunciation of immigration. Nor is it a recent phenomenon. Look up the literature of immigration and you will find the decade of 1840-1850 supplying its fair quota of a kicks a in goodly proportion to what our increased population puts Forth to Day. For 60 Yeai 3 we As a nation regardless of whether our j continent yet contained undeveloped territory As Iii 1847, or undeveloped possibilities As in 1907, have been objecting strenuously to immigration. Meanwhile the immigration has Beer steadily increasing except during the period of the civil War. And at the end of the go years we enjoy phenomenal Prosperity. There is an inconsistency Here somewhere Between the theories of the pessimists and the facts and a big one too. What Are the facts question of criminality. As to criminality we can find none supporting the theory that in general immigration is of a criminal sort. Here and there May be found minor facts and figures on that Side it is True. The Southern italians without question Are unusually illiterate and addicted to the settlement of differ How signal to Mars by Emerson Mcmillan. Chairman conciliatory committee of the civic federation. Decidedly i favor an intelligent restriction of immigration on both our May be modified in detail they will j Eastern and Western Seaboard. With still remain enormous. Our crops i out being an alarmist i venture to say have certainly been enormous of re a that the problem grows More difficult cent years but it has already become i each year and must ultimately de Plain that they cannot stand alone As Mand a solution. America has a com an explanation of our remarkable Pii shed wonders in assimilating great Prosperity. We not Only grow Hun j hordes of immigrants from Many Dif dress of millions of dollars Worth of j Ferent countries but it is a very Seri Corn wheat and Cotton at the Cost of much labor each year but we also imbibe from another continent without a cent of Cost to ourselves upward of a billion dollars Worth of human live Stock per annul. We do not hesitate to assign a solid value to every other form of live Stock which the land needs for its working. Why should not our immigrants figured As a similar asset be Standard of immigrants. Our own conclusions Are that the vast majority of immigrants Are slightly above our american standards in Industry sobriety and patient self restraint though they Are undoubtedly below us in initiative. They come from countries where unceasing toil is the Price of life and where the get Rich Quick microbe is virtually unknown. In their fatherland drunkenness is a minor crime whereas in great Britain and America it is a major Cue. And As to patience under conditions inviting to revolt America is proud of standing first among All the non latin Peoples of the temperate zones in her promptness to resent publicly by the passive rebellion of the strike if not by actual violence the presence of conditions unnecessarily hard. Our complaint against the immigrants must be that they Are too patient and submissive for american standards rather than that they Are too violent and resentful. As to illiteracy it is True that the immigrants Are below our Standard. What of it education is a thing of itself neither conducive to nor antagonistic to morality and happiness. It May be a powerful tool to both. But it is often used As an equally powerful tool against both. Our educated classes Are not always the a happiest ones. Our worst and biggest Crooks Are the educated ones. In Short a Man is of value to a by Robert Watchorn. Commissioner of immigration. Public opinion is All wrong or nearly so upon Many phases of the immigration question. With More than a ally foreign. The Black hand out million immigrants a year we cannot rages for instance have doubtless Supply the urgent demands for greatly exaggerated but such As Ous question How Long at the present rate of increase she can continue to do so. Now it seems to me that when foreigners come to us in such numbers that they form separate and distinct communities preserving their language and traditions intact they constitute a menace. When such a Colony is formed it is difficult to break up. Assimilation goes on very slowly. As a Rule the immigrant of recent years differs from us widely in his ideas of morality his attitude toward the Law and in his general Point of View. When we read of the violent crimes committed the names Are Usu the army of workers adds enormously to the wealth and Prosperity of the country. It is not the scum of Europe we Are getting but the pick of the most Earnest and hard we orking of its Popula they Are they Are a foreign importation and of very recent years. It is undeniable of course that the coming of these millions of labourers has contributed much to the wealth and Prosperity of the country. But the end of or. Wolf.

As to the morality of the Immi j should this army of workers be i Grants of to Day it seems to me that j creased indefinitely we have a pop it compares favourably with that of j ablation to Day in excess of 80,000,000 our native born population. All this is not a matter of Mere opinion or sentiment. It is borne out by the actual statistics. Or. Reeve s figures it seems to me in some respects understate the facts. He mentions $300 a ear As the earning Power very Active and Alert people. It would seem that the natural resources of the country could be developed and the great business of the land carried Forward very w Ell with our present population and its natural increase. And i am not among those who have of these immigrants. As a matter of any fear of race suicide. The in fact these men will earn More on j crease in the number of immigrants the average than a Dollar a Day. I j from year to year is astonishing. Can problem has Long occupied the minds of scientists. Mars is now much nearer the Earth than he usually comes which fact suggests an inquiry As to what use has been made of the 10,000 francs $2,000 which an old French lady bequeathed to the Institute of France for the discovery of some Means of j move to be made by Mars. One night communicating with the planets in the fact that the Flag would have to be As Large As Ireland. Possibility however glimmers in the suggestion that All the Gas and electric lights in some great City like London should be controlled by one turn cock and alternately switched on and off to Flash messages to Mars. Some years ago Francis Galton the English scientist sketched out a solution of the problem supposing the first think the figure May safely be increased by at least 50 per cent. Within a few Days or. Cabaries Lorhn the new York state commissioner of labor came to me in search of men i could not Supply. He estimated that new York state alone needed 100,000 men to whom he would pay $25 a month and Board on the farms alone. Nowr that does not look much like overcrowding or the impossibility of assimilating we hear so much about. Of the million or to he exact the heroic Snake bite cure. General and Mars in particular. This bequest tvs made about ten years ago and it was safeguarded by the provision that if the French scientists refused the responsibility which they did not it was to be offered to Milan and failing there to new York. One Man has suggested monstrous triangles in the Sahara to attract the attention of Martian astronomers and convince them of our knowledge of geometry. But a line on the Earth s surface would have to be at least 30 Miles Broad to be visible from Mars. The suggestion that Earth dwellers should signal by flags also overlooks the Earth astronomers Are to notice a Peculiar scintillation on the disk of that planet. These lights Are to be recognized As regularly varying in duration b being twice As Long As a and c three times the length. Soon these flashes distinctly divided by pauses Are realized to be sentences consisting of a series of numerals. Then the messages Are spelt out As stating the distance of the planets from the Sun and other arithmetical data. In Short or. Galton imagines that three or four years careful observation would give a code of signals for full and Complete intercommunication. Operation was unpleasant but certainly saved life. A i got a lesson in treating Snake bites awhile ago that May stand me in Good Stead some Day although i can to say it was pleasant to learn a said Frank Hargis. A i was out we Ith a prospecting party in Nevada and was crossing one of the arid wastes that made a Large part of that state a desert until the discovery of Gold attracted people there. A there were two other Eastern men besides myself and we had a Veteran guide with us. Rattlesnakes Are numerous in that country and the guide told us to beware of them As they Are just about the color of the Sand and it is very difficult to see them. I was walking along the Sand during a Short Stop when a warning rattle told of a Snake in my path. I jumped to one Side and almost on top of another Snake. A i just heard it rattle and then Felt a stinging sensation in my leg. I we continue to receive this army indefinitely without some Day reducing our scale of income to that of Europe does it seem probable that the slavs the russian hebrews the sicilians and others who Are coming to us in such numbers to Day will in a few years have risen As have the Irish and have become As Good americans and if these foreigners with traditions and manners very different from our own Are not assimilated the problem becomes a very serious one. Made my Way to Camp As quickly As possible and told my Story. The guide made me lie Down removed the thick stocking through which the snakes fangs had penetrated and bathed the wound. He then broke open a Cartridge and spread the powder on the open sore. I started to protest against his evident intention but he told me that it was the one Chance of saving my life so i kept still. A the touched off the powder the Flash cauterizing the wound effectively. He then mashed the Leaf of a Plant which grows wild in the desert and applied it like a poultice. I went to sleep and woke up in the morning suffering from nothing More severe than a very stiff leg. This lasted for about a week and then i was As Well As Sentinel. Contingent. Soulful girls of does it not make you Happy As Ruskin says to watch the Corn grow Young Farmers Well that depends on whether you re watching it grow on your Side or the other Side of the line Fence. The Pelican plunged his Bill downward into the water and brought up a fish. Right beside him stood the Crane. A by the Way did you Ever hear the Story of the Fox and the cheese a asked the Crane. The Pelican paused in his meal the fish still squirming in his Bill. He Shook his head. A a Crow once stole a piece of very Fine cheese. Flying with it to a tree he was about to eat it when he espied or. Reynard underneath the tree. A the Fox Straightway began to Praise the Crow and at last begged for one of his charming songs. So pleased was the foolish Crow with these compliments that he opened his Bill to sing when to the cheese drop de from it into the jaws of or. Reynard who then trotted contentedly the Pelican looked at the Crane for a moment. Then he opened wide his great Bill in a Hearty Guffaw. An in stand and the Crane had inserted his Long Bill and had drawn from that of the Pelican the wriggling fish. Certainly the Crow of the fable could not have looked More shamefaced by around him than did the Pelican. Followed in the Wake of an Irish ter Rier. Down the Little Valley trotted the Irish terrier and after him limped the Little Black and Tan dog panting in his eagerness to keep the other in sight. In less than a minute the terrier halted by a Stone doorway and As the Little dog Drew near he could hear the Long gurgling draughts of water which the Irish dog was taking in. The Little dog waited till the others thirst was assuaged then he also thrust his head into the pan and eagerly lapped up the Small Quantity of water which was left. How Good those few drops Felt to the Little parched Tongue but of How he longed for More and even As he longed someone Bent Over him with gentle words and filled the earthenware pan with water to the brim. Once More the Little dog plunged his head into the pan nose and eyes and ears All were immersed in the delicious coolness of the water. Then he began to drink afresh and lapped and lapped and lapped until someone lifted him gently from beside the pan and stroked his Little Black head kindly. A no More just now Little dog j you la be ill you know. Wait a bit a i said a soft voice and the sad lonely eyes of the dog looked into the sad lonely eyes of a Little crippled boy and Straightway a Friendship was formed which was to last those two As Long As both remained on Earth. A i never did see such a child a said Jemmy smother that evening when she got Back from work. A a ainu to yer three legged Kitten enough or yer Blind Canary that be must have a dog for a playmate too a a the seemed to want for to stay a said the boy looking fondly at the Little Black and Tan head which rested confiding by across hi3 foot. A Well let him stay then its not Many pleasures be have a said the woman and she smiled in answer to the look of Joy which flashed into her Little songs face. A a he la remind me to keep the dogs Basin filled Reg Lar a said the child. A a a tis quite a number of dogs come every Day now Mother to have a drink. I think they must Tell each other there a always water Here a and the Little Hunchback laughed at the thought. A the big retriever comes every Day and the Irish terrier but i had two new ones to Day which ainu to never been before and then this Little in a caressing the Little dog As he spoke a and two pigeons and one Quot quite a circus ainu to it a said his Mother. A i wish they All paid their pennies for the drink Jemmy and that a us pay for the Little dogs a Why seven and six for keeping a dog a said his Mother. A never mind. I must try and get a extra Day s work now and then that won t Hurt. And again her hard featured face was illumined by a sudden smile in answer to the look of grateful pleasure which the child gave quiver. Ing that is safest under lock and key. Centrepieces and doilies that Are embroidered in colors or made of drawn work should never be allowed to get very soiled before washing not Only because everything that belongs to a table should be kept spotlessly clean but because they Are perishable things and should never be rubbed hard. Many attractive novelties Are shown in Art embroidery. Foremost among them Are the cottage sets for summer Homes and cottages. These sets Are Selling better than Ever before. Hitherto confined almost wholly to the great metropolitan centers the demand for them now has spread Over the entire country and promises to have a great Boom. Stem Ware As the charmingly shaped goblets and other spindly glasses Are called is to be rimmed Wilth Gilt and ornamented with a Gilt Monogram or Crest.

Of Pale Pink As the lining. It is a Good plan to Sprinkle some Sachet pow Der Over the silk before putting the finishing touches to the lining As this will give a delicate perfume to the whole of the Sachet. Other contrasts of color can be selected of course if preferred and the Sachet would be pretty in Leaf Green lined with palest Pink in Pale yellow lined with White or in two shades of mauve or hyacinth Blue.

The peking gauges Are imitated by sewing Black and w Hite Satin ribbon on a foundation of mouse line de some and lace gowns Are made up with lines of ribbon and entre Deus. The More usual use of ribbon is in trimming and this seems to be More extensive than Ever before. Often a gown will be trimmed with a Plain ribbon with a Pompadour ribbon for the Belt. Profitable and pleasing occupation foe Leisure hours. No matter How Many amusements there Are in summer such As Tennis Golf bathing and croquet there is always an hour or two in each Day when a girl wonders what to do with her time. She May not care to read or Seward yet feel too Lazy to do anything More strenuous. In these hours some girls last summer hit on a splendid scheme which at the end of the season gave themselves and Many others a great Deal of pleasure. They were most anxious to give a Cotillon but could not As the favors were so expensive so one of the girls Sug guested their getting together and making some. A so they met one morning and started by making paper Flowers of which they made a great Many in about an hour and on leaving each girl we As Given some paper to take Home with her so that she could make More. The next week these Flowers were sewn on a ribbon about a Yard # Long the kind that can be bought for about 15 cents apiece. Ten Flowers to Yard of ribbon Wras the allowance and when finished it made a very pretty Ruff for the neck. With the Flowers that were left Over were made boutonnieres for the men and Here Wilth Little if any trouble was one set of favors. For another set they Cut out pretty pictures from magazines and had Glass Cut to fit them. These when passe part outed made most acceptable favors for the girls to correspond with those the men had a Ordinary White Clay pipes with the Date of the dance painted on the Bow l and the stems tied with ribbon. For another set they had paper hats for the girls and rosettes of ribbon for the men. A something in a name. A circumstances a exclaimed the summer Boarder.

This is said to be a True Snake Story it is told by an Anglo Indian. In the next Bungalow a Little boy daily had his bread and milk on the veranda sitting in a child a High chair. He was As merry As a Cricket j one heard him talking and crowing to himself apparently until one morning to my horror i saw him tapping the head of a cobra gently with his spoon saying a a robbery robbery a i naughty naughty. The Snake was quietly drinking the milk out of the bowl paying no heed to the child s j play. A sudden noise or movement on my j part and the cobra would instants have turned and bitten the boy. Presently Down Slid the reptile away into some Bushes and i got the men to go and kill it. The child cried bitterly and said the Snake had come every morning and helped him with his breakfast. Rival to White Waist. The fancy for the All White waists has somewhat subsided before the attractions of the Waist of Tan lace and the Waist that is of Ivory coloured net trimmed with yellow lace with tiny bits of needlework set into the lace these lace waists Are More interesting than the All White lace waists and they Are suitable for w ear on Many Dressy occasions. They can be made to match the gown by the introduction of bits of coloured embroidery. Braid trimmings. Braids Are indeed increasing in rather than falling from favor and will play an important part in autumn trimmings. A gown prepared for Cowes week by an English society woman is of White Serge made with a Semi fitting cutaway coat braided and displaying a Waistcoat of bulgarian embroidery with a tracery of Gold thread. Dainty hats of Bamboo. A delightful summer hat which weighs Only a few ounces is of Bamboo Straw which though it closely resembles Panama is even lighter in weight. Some very models Are being shown at a fifth Avenue shop says a writer in dress. They Are trimmed with Long silk scarfs on which Are appliqued designs in Silks of contrasting colors. They Are tied in Loose bows and sometimes have finely fringed ends. As these hats can be Bent any shape to suit the face they Are desirable.
