Almost Equal Record in the Numbei

Steamship Companies Lax.
Washington, Dec. 28. Secretary
Nagel's annual report, sent to the pre
ldent, contains many Important rec
ommendutlons for changes and Im
provements In tho various bureaus
and branches of .the department ol
commerce and labor.
One of the hardships of tho present
Immigration laws, Secretary Nagel be
lieves, Is the separation of families.
In many Instances a father Is admit
ted and his wife and children are
barred out after tho pioneer has made
a nonio. i no secretary ueueves inai
a more equitable system could be
found, and says he assumes it Is the
purpose of the law to keep families
together and not to separate them.
Tho secretary suggests that some sys
tern by which Inquiry should be made
about the families of Immigrants be
fore fathers and sons are admP.ted,
should bo put Into practice.
Stricter regulation of steamship
companies In the Immigrant traffic Is
urged In tho report and a system ol
flues for companies which bring in
ami Immigrants or those afflicted
with contagious disease Is proposed
While tho fiscal ycRr 1910 brought a
total of 1,198,037 Immigrants to the
L'nlted States, the prediction Is made
that the coming year will approach
the banner year 1907, when more than
1,285,000 aliens came In.
