WASHINGTON, March Senate and House Committees on Emigration met in joint session Thursday and heard protests against the passage of any laws restricting foreign immigration. Ed- ward Rosewater, editor and proprietor of the Omaha Bee, made tho first ad- dress. He stated that he represented a number of German societies, and socie- ties of other nationalities in the West, and proposed to tell the committee of tho views they entertained on the sub- ject Mr. Rosewater reviewed briefly the history of immigration from the time of the Declaration of Independ- ence and stated that the question natur- ally followed: "To what extent shall this right of immigration he abridged or extended by the United At the present he said, the ratio of immigration was on tho decrease. Since 1847, immigrants had landed at the port ot New York. Tho time had not yet come, ho believed, when immigration should bo restricted. The pauper laborers transplanted on this side of tho ocean were generally supposed to the interests of our laboring people. This, he contended, was not so. When tbe pauper laborers came to this country their condition be- came better. Their wants were greater and they became greater consumers. The native Americans had given up tho heavier kinds of labor and these immi- grants were needed to take their places. The Americans who worked on the streets and railroads to-day were com- paratively few. Richard Bartholdt, editor of the St. Louis Tribune, read to the committee a protest to Congress from a conference of German-American societies held in Washington a few days ago. The pro- test cited that the societies "respect- fully but earnestly remonstrate against tho passage of any aad all of tbe meas- ures now before youv honorable body, designed to materially change tho pres ont national on immigration and naturalization." Celso Morono, an Italian by birth, but a prominent citizen of Washington, sale that the Italian emigrants would be an excellent acquisition for America i] they could be free from the cruel pad- rone system that brings them to this country through false representations and with, as he asserted, the complicity of the Italian consuls in the Unitec States, who divide the spoils that grow out of the traffic.
