of Inml today to soo how tlio tons of
thounnml who como knocking at Undo
Sain'rt door every month aro received
biuI how thoso who nro not thought do
slrnhlo nro prevented from ontorlnp;, nnd
A most Interesting visit it wan.
Only thoso who como to this nldo in
tlio cheapest purl of tlio ship, tlio steer
'tigo, pawi through this gatuway, for it is
nsxumed tlmt thoso who linvo money
enough to pay their way in cither tho
first or second cabin nro likely to ho do
nimble, tlio only questions raised by tho
gatekeeper being as to tho ability of tho
immigrant to bo self supporting, whether
or not ho comes in fulfillment of n con
tract regarding employment, nnd an to
their record an law abiding cltlr.oim in
tho lands from which thoy come. Tho
chief gatekoopor'acstahlishmont Is called
the bureau of immigration.
Dr. Benncr, nn energetic, earnest,
scholarly man, is commissioner nt pres
ent, nnd ho has tho nnlstnnco of about
00 persons, including heads of depart
ments, clerks, matrons, doctors, labor
ers, etc. About as ninny moro persons
who nrc employed by tho railroads, tho
various societies, etc., also And occupa
tion on tho islnud, so that its regular
day population, exclusive of imtnlg.-unts
and visitors? is about 180,
Immigration is light nt present, but it
would not bo possiblo to pass ono-half
cjf tho number received oven now with
out au almost perfect executivo system.
Accordingly Dr. Bonner's staff is thor
oughly organised and inpludos inspect
ors, interpreters, matrons, doctors,
clerks audi miscellaneous employees, to
each of whom is assigned somo partlcu
lar.work, and all of whom perform their
duties with tho utmost harmony day
after day.
According to tho prcsont law, steam
hip companies are required to furnish
tlte commissioner of immigration witli a
..;BfujBpitalnlll4tho nawea of all
steerage passengers with each shipload
of immigrants. This manifest must
statu iu addition to the names tho ngo,
sex, nativity, occupation and destination
of each person, besides n lot of other do
tails for tho commissioner's guidance
For convcnicuco tho stccrago pnsscngors
aro divided into blocks of HO, each pas
acngor being numbered, nnd Ida number
being set oppoto his nunio upon tlio
manifest,
Commissioner Scnncr'H ndvanco gunrd,
the boarding officers, nro tho llrat United
States officials with whom tho immi
grant come in contact. Thoy go on
board tho ship at quarantino nnd there
begin tho work of investigation, remov
ing from the ship such pnssongora ua,nro
eutleriug from malignant disoasws, nud
sometimes working iu conjunction with
tho New York health officer, Dr. Jen
kins, causing tho detention of tho chip
upon which tho disenso exists with its
entire quota of immigrants.
Ouco quarantino ia safely passed, tlio
ship proceeds to its dock, tho cabin pas
sengers and citizens who aro steerage
passengers disombnrk nnd go their wayt
unimpeded 'by nny restrictions other
than .those, imposed by UncloSam'a cur
torn house officers, but alien atecrng
passongors must nil enter through Dr,
Scnnor'a gato and aro convoyed thither
upon United States barges. Boforo leav
ing the ship, n card bearing a number
and U) letter, tho lattor to show tho d'
vision to which tip passenger belongs,
is pinned upon tho breast of each indi
vidual. Ten .minutes befdro n bargo
load of immigrants arrives nt tho island
the loud sound of n gong echoes through
the immenso main building of tho bu
reau. When tho bargo has been made
fast to the dock, tho gong is ngaii
sounded, nnd by this timo every official
Is at his post.
As soon as tho gangplank had been
put iu place, tho passengers string
aahoro, aud a moro motley crowd was
never seen under tho sky of heaven than
that made by tho stccrago passengers of
a ship, from Rotterdam or from one of
the Mediterranean ports. Tho shipload
which arrived this morniug during my
presence was from Rotterdam, nnd its
passengers included Germans nnd Poles
and Hungarians nnd Slovaks and Bohe
mians and Russian Jows.
Guided by tho proper officials, they
limbed tho stairs to the second story
and through what must havo been to
them most devious passages to tho great
hall where tho inspection was performed.
They first entered a space about 00 feet
square, separated from tho rest of tho
floor by wire gratings ,in such a way na
to form an immense cage, There- raoh
division was passed iu single filo between
fas pipe railings in front of tho instiect
orf' desks, and thoro each individual
was questioned and cross questioned un
til' tho inspectors were satisfied either i
that be or she should bo allowed to pro
ceed, without further examination or that
the caw needed such other investigation '
, aeoould be obtained only by detention.
The inspectors are a patient, iatelli
'ajeat. courteous lot of men, From long
nerience fliay can tell at n gbnee tho
, Mwaality of the immigrant, and so do
ot need to wait for spoken words to
fcaow fat what language to make the iu-
i, of course, an inspect
or will ho nt fault, hut oun syllable
from tho questioned Individual will sot
tho oDlclal mind right, nnd then tho
questioning proceeds rapidly, but skill
fully, until it Inn been determined how
tho Immigrant shall be tli poiod of.
Ono of tho most important questions
relates to tho amount of money in pos
session of the individual, but contrary to
an impression which seems general It Is
not required that an immigrant shall bo
possessed of any specified sum. If tho
doctors past favorably as to tho health
of tho person examined nnd ho or sho
luivo enough tuonoyor n ticket for trans
imitation to tho ultimnto destination,
relenso comes at once, providing tho im
migrant' answers ngrco with tho partic
ulars cot down In tho ship's manifest.
This is tho general rulo. Tlio except loin
I have boforo nlludod to. A woman with
children, unaccompanied by n husband
or other inalo relative n minor without
money or n person who is suspected ol
being n contract laborer Is nt onco sent
to tho detention pen, as tho officials
speak of tho largo cage In which thoso
whom it is thought deslrablo to further
examine nro placed.
Tho detention pen is raroly empty, nl
though onco or twlco n shipload of Immi
grants has been received nmong whom
tliero was not ono cnudldnto for this
cage. Almost nil women accompanied
only by thulr children pass somo titno in
this compartment, for It rarely happens
that tho woman's husband is nt hand to
rcccivo her at tho moment of her nrrlval
nt Ellis island, nnd tho authorities will
not allow her to land unless her husband
comes for her. This ruling may nt first
thought appear to bo unnecessarily so
vero, nnd it eoituinly does so nppcnr to
most of tho detained wives, but as ex
plained to mo by tlio authorities it seems
a very necessary regulation.
Tho great aim of inspection nnd exam
ination is to prevent tho landing of in
dividuals likely sooner or later to bo
como n charge upon tho chnritnblo socio
ties or tho stnto authorities. A woman
with n family of small children, without
a husband to provido for her support, if
without money will probably need nld
very soon nftor arriving here, and tho
cxpcricncoof tho authorities has been
such to render it necessary in their eyes
that tlio oxlsteuco of tho husband shall
bo proved by his personal uppcarutico to
receive his family.
Oftoutimea wives como to America
bringing their children with them in
search of husbands who Imvo beou
guilty of desertion, nnd such families
nro nlmost certain to bo incapablo of
self support. Sometimes widows como
with tho expectation of living with rein
tives. In such Instances if tho relatives
can show beyond reasonablo shadow of
doubt tlmt they will bo nblo to support
tho detained immigrants tlio latter nro
allowed to Innd.

understood nmong tho immigrants nud
their friends, nud ns n conscqucnco mon
go to tho bureau ovcry dny claiming to bo
tho husbands of nowly arrived woinon
who do not in fact sustain that relation
toward them.
Tho board of contract labor inspectors,
Mr. John J. Qiilnhin chief, has to do
with quite nuother Bort of detention.
Tho work of this department of tho bu
reau ia important, nnd under nil tho cir
cumstances very cffectlvo, n llttlo less
than 1 per cent of tho total number of
alien immigrants being detained nnd
sent bnck by this board nt present. This
is much iu excess of tho number former
ly sent back. From July, 1802, to July,
1803, only 439 nil told wero sent back
under tho contract labor law. During
July of this year 210 went back, and
during August IK5. Most contract la
borers como very well posted ns to what
they shall answer when questioned by
tho Inspectors, nnd when n block of, say,
10 or 15 men nil answer tho contract la
bor Inspectors in practically tho snine
words tho wholo block i3 rcinspected.
But it is not claimed that n very large
porcentago of thoso who nro really here
under contract nro detected.
Thoso immigrants who nro fortunate
enough to bo passed without nny deten
tion nt nil nro without unnecessary delay
put nbonrd tho bureau's ferryboat nnd
6ent to Now York, or turned over to
tho railroad pool for transportation to
such interior plnccs ns they nro bound
for. Those whom it is finally decided
must bo roturnod to Europe nro marched
to tho return pen. Thoy nro n most de
jected, woebegone lot, nnd their looks

bright faces nnd buoyant inein of tlio
others. To theso it seems no doubt that
thoy have now reached tho land of milk
and honey, a happy country where
plenty and comfort will surely follow
honest exertion. Most of them Imvo yet
to learn that in America, as in tho rest
of tho world, Danio Fortune distributes
her rewards with a partial baud, nnd
that to many life in America is n lifo of
privation, and to all who wonld win one
of constant strugglo and toll.

self confidence, as It wero, shown by tho
monkey of tho fablo who wound tho watch
with a corkucrow. But ns I wns1 for many
yearn examiner of mines nr.d writer

different. In tho coal mints of Indiana,
Ohio nnd Nova Scotln, I Imvo often had oc

that kind of mining rather disqualifies one
for understanding n silver initio. Coal and

clous metal; It takes too much labor nnd
skill to get it.
Ail:. Ilvlmn'it Btutiic.
In view of nil these things, It nlmost ug
gravatcsan old miner to co no few peoplo
lit this bulldingand tonoto that tho crowds
nro nbout two or three particular sights.
Olio Is tho diamond washing nud palish
ing. I hnvo not jet been nblo to (;et near
enough to watch tho process, for it draws
tho peoplo In inns. By tho way, auother
thing I havn not bcci nblo to seu is tho
rcenlc theater iu tho Electricity building,
for tliero nro hundreds wnltlngthere when
ever it is open. Montana's silver statuo
of Ada ltchan of courso draws n crowd,
nnd so do tho wonderful copper exhibits.
It Is indeed n pleasure to look nt the
great masses, 0,000 nnd 8,003 pounds
each, of tbla metal almost pure in its
nativo htatu from tho mines of .Michi
gan. In tho cases, too, nro hundreds
of specimens of tho "fiowere.l" ore, its
surface drilling in brllllunt green. Gold
Is the only metal, I believe, which "flowers"
or gives a stain of Its own color. Copper
stain is green, iron stain is red, lead Btaln
is silvery gray, and tho milpburets, gener
ally in combination with other minerals,
flowcroutonthoburfncQln all tho gorgeous
disorder of tho ho called "peacock ores."
Another crowd Is gmcrnlly found about
tho net rilled woods, of which Colorado. Vnw
Mexico unri Arizona Imvo sent somo truly
wonderful specimens. Imagine n cross sve-
' tlon sawed out of n freshly fallen oak nnd
men suddenly turned to tho hardest ngato
nil tho veins nnd annunl rings, nnd even
tho mlnuto variations just under tho bark,
fixed in tho eternal statuary of nature.
Some of theo slabs are two feet across, and
whllo tho vim is left iu the "natural wood,"
so to speak, tho fnco Is polished to n mirror
llkesnioothness. T1iom called mossngates,
water agates nnd ribbon ngates attract
much lessnttentlon, as, though pretty, they
nro not specially curious.
Other Mlurrul Curlotltlei.
Thostraugo forms which silver assumes
aro more Interesting. When there Is moro
of tho pure metal iu a mass of oro than
tho quartz or other matrix can hold in
chemical or mechanical union, tho excess
forms upon tho face of tho ore mass some
times in fine spun threads of sliver hair,
sometimes In wire silver nnd again iu ruby
silver, horn silver or silver glance. In raro
Instances the except coats tho oar mass iu
filmy folds llkowlmt butchers call "leaf
lard." AH theso interest tho peoplo as
curiosities merely.
Under tho Kentucky pavilion Is a repro
duction of ono chamber of tho Mammoth
cave. In tho Washington building is the
mammoth block of coal tl.OOO pounds. Tho
famous A. K. Footo collection of ISO tons
of rare minerals, which was shown at tho
Centennial nnd at Paris, is also here. Tho
Greeks hnvo sent many things of interest
as nntltpiltles. The htntuo of Liberty in

tho older inhabitants of this city to talk
ing of tho disenso in 1852-1.

old man today who has sinco got rich

"Somo of tlio victims wero taken nwny

who was very successful in his treat
