WASHIXGTOS, March 18. In the
enate to-day Mr. Lodea flelirerel a
et ipeech Id tup xrt of hU resolution
(or additional immigration laws. He
showed that by the existing law pau
pern, dleaed persona, convicts and
contract laborer are now denied ad-
n Won to the United State. By the
bill under consideration, it was pro
posed to make a new class of excluded
immigrants, viz., the totally ignorant.
It was found as a result of investlga-
tion that the illiteracy test would bear
heavily on the Italians, Russians, Poles,
Hungarians, Greeks and Asiatics, and
very lightly, or not at all, upon Eng
lish-speaking immigrants, or Germans,
Scandinavians and French. "The
races which would suffer most seriously
by exclusion under the proposed bill,"
he said, "furnish the immigrants, who
do not go to the west or south, where
immigration i needed, but who remain
on the Atlantic seaboard, where immi
gration is not needed, and where their
presence is most Injurious and unde
sirable. He continued:
If we have any regard for the wel
fare, the wages or the standard of life
of American worklngmen, we should
take immediate steps to restrict for
eign immigration. There Is no danger,
at present at all events, to our work'
ingmen from the coming of skilled me
chanics or of trained and educated men
with a settled occuoation or pursuit.
for immigration of this class will never
seek to lower the American standard
of life and wages. But there is an ap
palling danger to the American wa?e
earner from the flood of low, unskilled,
ignorant foreign labor which has
poured into the country for some years
past, ine danger nas begun. It is
small as yet, comparatively speaking,
out it is large enough to warn us to
act while there is yet time and while
it can oe done easily and efficiently.
There lies the peril at the portals of
our land; there is pressing in the tide
of unrestricted immigration. The time
has certainly come, if not to stop, at
least to check, to sift, and to restrict
those immigrants.
and many others. This council Is com
posed of good material, and, If properly
cared for, will beooneeone of the best
in the state.
Helped and Embarrw4 by the A. P. A.
The A. P. A. has just won In com
bination with the Republican party a
notable victory in St. Louis. The Re
publican candidates for the school elec
tions were to a man not only sympa
thizers with the A. P. A., but active
and aggressive members of the order.
This assured their election. The Re
publican party acceded to the demands
of the A. P. A. The success of the
order in St. Louis is not more-extraordi
nary than its success in various other
populous centers of the United States.
In combination with the Republican
party it has achieved many notable
Probably the silver will not be the
only question that will embarrass the!
National Republican Convention at St.
Louis. It will assemble In a strong A.
P. A. environment. In Illinois to-day
the A. P. A. controls the Republican
party. It is not potent in Cook county,
but it is elsewhere in the state. So in
many states. It is not unlikely, there
fore, that the Republican party as
sembled at St. Louis will be called upon
to state specifically whether It will or
will not adopt a resolution as part of
its platform accepting the uroscriDtive
policy ot the A. P. A. organization.
Should this be the case the Republi
can party will be decidedly in a di
lemma. It will be damned if it does
and it will be damned if it doesn't.

A method ot silvering mirrors, pro
duclng mirrors or much greater bril
llancy than those made by ordinary pro
cesses, haa been discovered by Herr
Hans Boas ot Kiel. It Is based on the
fact that when a heavy metal forma

deposited as a firmly adherent and
highly polished layer on the walls of
the tube.
The Restaurant. Compete with Saloons
and Olv. Free Drink.
Out In St. Joseph, Mo., the keepers
of restaurants have grown weary of the
competition of the saloons in the mat
ter of feeding the hungry, says the
Courier Journal. The saloons are popu
larly supposed to devote their atten
tlon to quenching thirst, but they will
not stick to that In St Joseph, any
more than they do In other towns.
Every saloon sets one lunch a day and
many set two, while some have a lunch
always in evidence. Nothing is said of
an oyster with each drink, always ex
ceptlng a schooner, but it Is likely
that such a system prevails there.
The restaurateurs are tired of this.
They do not see why they should not
offer a premium for men to eat their
meals, as the barkeepers offer a pre
mium for men to drink their liquors,
it meals are to be Riven away with
drinks, why should not drinks be given
away with meals? The restaurant
keepers are, therefore, seriously dis
cussing the question of giving away
two glasses of beer with each meal.
They think they can do this without
license as they propose to charge
nothing for the beer. Whether they
are well advised as to the law may be
a question.
If this sort of competition be at
tempted, It will be interesting to see
how it will turn out It would rather
seem that the odds were in favor of
the saloons. As the saloons get a large
per cent profit on their sales of drinks,
they have a good deal larger margin
of profit than any but the high-priced
restaurants. But the higher-priced
restaurants charge so much more for
a meal than the saloons charge for a
drink with a meal thrown in that the
two beers would hardly prove an In
ducement to those in quest of cheap
provender, which is presumably the
class mostly found around the lunch
counter. Moreover the saloonkeeper
sets a free lunch In the hope that those
he feeds will come in between meals
to slake their thirst, which many of
them actually do. No such hope as
this Is open to the keepers of the res
taurants. The latter will, besldea
serious risk of driving away their
temperance customers, who are willing
to pay more rather than take their
meals in a place where liauors are
