Alien Immigration to be Restricted,
A cablegram to the San Francisco
Chronicle under date of London. Aug
ust 12, says: Tho report of the royal
commission on alien immigration is
issued today. It recommends that the
immigration of certain classes of
aliens into the United Kingdom be
subjected to state control and pro
poses a number of reflations and the
establishment of a department of im
migration. The specific recommenda
tions made in the report are similar
Ii many respects to the provisions of
the United States immigration law,
except that no educational require
ment is proposed.
In some directions the regulations
are more strident than the American
. . . :
No, sir, I do not mourn tho defeat of any ship
subsidy bill,
on the contrary, I am strqngly in favor of tho gov
.ment doing everything possible to help the Ameri
can merchant marine."

regulations. Tho "undesirable" classes
stated in the report include prosti
tutes, lunatics, convicted criminals and
any one who is in danger of becoming
a public charge.
Provision . is made for the deporta
tion of immigrants who may be
proved to be undesirable within two
years of their landing, and the vessel
importing them will be co pellcd to
repatriate them without compensation.
The proposed medical inspection H
similar to that in the United States.
Tho penalty for supplying false data
to the immigration inspectors is de
portation. The immigration department may
specify certain overpopulated areas as
prohibited territory for fresh Immi
grants. In this case of the conviction
of an immigrant for felony or mlade
moanor tho court may include depor
tation as part of the sentence.

Why Limited?
"There is in a town in Western Now
York," says Chauncoy M. Depew, "that
bears no name, and in this town some
persons by boring tapped a natural gas
well, and thereupon formed 'the Depew
Natural Gas company, limited.' Mr.
Choato and I met shortly after this on
a public occasion, when both were set
down for speeches. He had tho last
word. After dealing with other matr
ters ho drew from his pocket the pros
pectus of tho gas company and read
it. Then he looked tho company over,
looked at me, and reading the title at
tho head of tho prospectus, queried
with quiot emphasis: "Why limited?"
