Only one ballot was taken on the
resolution and the vote stood 20 to 2 in
favor of its passage. The directors of

THE IMMIGRATION WAVE.
Statute Ned Krpalra to I'rerent an Orrr
Washington, June A. (Jen. Jamc
G. O'Bcrne, deputy commissioner of im
migration at New York, who is in
Washington conferring with the treas
ury officials about immigration matters,
says the new immigration law, while
effective as far as it goes, is not yet
comprehensive enough, and that con
gress will be compelled to amend
it next winter. The law, he
thinks, lacks the positlvcncs
usually given to health lmards. Some
thing, he says, will have to be done tc
prevent the arrival of unskilled laborer?
who displace Americans in order that
corporations may pay leas wages. De
spite the contract labor law mea who
have beea foremen or superintendent?
go abroad and secure large gangs oi
men, bringing them over to this country
in detached sections and keeping se
cret the matter of their contract He
says, also, that this state of affairs
can only be remedied by the watchful
ness of officers of the labor unions, who
can aid the immigration bureau by no
tifying it at New York or Washington
when gangs of workmen appear in their
town under suspicious circumstaaccs.
The facts would then be investigated
and the mea, if tbey came here under
contract and arc discovered withia a
year, caa be returned to the country
from whence they came.

So long as the church in America i

would not any foreigner, however

we have M. Mrrcier, minister of the

principal nd accrued Interest of the V
per cent bead issued under the acta of
July 14, 1970, and January M, 1871, out
standing September 1, 1st 1. will be paid
at the treasury of the United H tales on
that day, ami that tho Interest on tho
bond will then cease. Suggestion
have been made on the part of the hold
ers of some of these bond of a
desire to extend the payment at thn
option of the Ualted State at the rate
of ii per ccat per aanam. and the
secretary of the treasury will hereafter
consider whether the acceptance of
uch offer of them will be profitable to
the government aad in that event re

It I officially atated that the sugges

day is made more a a matter of prece
dence than of nrcelty. The treasury
department it is said, is abundantly abln
to pay altnf tbe5l,OO0.0u9 4VperrenU
outstanding, but in vfow of the uncer
tainty of future receipt and expendi
ture it I judged better to take the side
of safety. The secretary net only be
lieve that he has ample means to ee
fray all the expense of the govern
ment but I confident that he will m
able to retire a considerable amount of
the public debt In addition to tha V
