Page Six SOUTHERN GUARDIAN LOUIS KOERS Carriages Buggies Studebaker andTenflessee Wagons THE great industries the desirable develop- men, is hindered not by lack of cap- ital, but by lack of workmen. Not only is an adequate supply of skilled labor lacking, but unskilled labor is false scarce. In some spots or at some I moments a temporary oversupply of labor may occasionally exist in largo cities, .but this temporary difficulty is soon cured by a redistribution of the laboring population.

At the close all united in the class song to the words of "Dixie." Cecilia Jones (Class 1911). PINE BLUFF CORRESPONDENCE Pine Bluff, Annunciation Academy, April 10a 1911. To the Editor Southern Guardian: March, the mouth of' St Joseph, our special patron, has given place to April and the first Wednesday of April brought with it our usual "Note Day" exorcise. At 2 p. m. the teachers, pupils and friends of Annunciation Academy filed into our school hall, as the saying is, "to be entertained." The stage was artistically ;decorated in festoons of red, white and .blue bunting, while "Old Glory" crowued the center of the stage above the piano. The mem- bers of the St. Aloysius Literary Club comprising the pupils of the seventh and eighth grades of the academy gave an animated and spirited conversation entitled "Beacon Lights of History," interspersed with music, song and dec- lento,ions. The careful rendition of the various parts won for the Tmrtici- pants appreciative applause from all. The program opened with "National Airs" by t:he St. Cecilia orchestra of the academy. Tim last air played was the dear old song, "Dixie," and the applause that followed proved that the efforts of the St. Cecilia Club were fully appreciated. Then came the cho- rus, "Out on the Ice," by the seventh and eighth grades, who proved that they could and would sing. The next number waskjdThe Palms," by Miss Erma Helton. "The Palms" appeals to its hearers at all times, but most especially now, as we are so near the great Pahn Sunday. After this was over little/Miss Nina Cheshire, th'o elo- cutionist of the club, recited "The Dream of Claudia." The gracefulness of the speaker as well as her dramatic delivery added much to the pathos of the selection, which went home to the hearts of the audience. 'Aftdr tlfe recitation Miss Cecilia Jones gave "The Man of Sorrows," a hymn most beautifully pathetic. Then appeared the boys and girls of the seventh and eighth grades decked in red, white anit blue rib- bons. Their bright and happy .faces fully demonstrated the fact tha.t they would not fail. In the conversation which now be- gan, the principal events of our conn. try's history were touched upon. Be- ginning with Columbus and reaching down to the grea.t Civil War, they led us through the interesting pages of our history. The courage, daring and per- severance of the great Columbus was graphically depicted by Master Willie Jenkins in the declamation, "Colum- bus." The "Boston Tea Party" was very humorously portrayed in "Will iou Have Some Tea?" Every one enjoyed :Mr. Johnny Bull's discomfit- ure at having his proposals so scorn. fully rejected by the proud damsels, :Miss Carolina Little, :Miss Rh9dy , etc. Along the way the audience was stirred VIEWS 0P HON.

(We have just received a copy of his speech, January 14 last, in the Itouse of Representatives, from Hen. Win. Sulzer of New York, on the sub,.oct i of foreign immigration to the United States. The speech is nmdo up of remarks of the Hen. Wm. S. Bonnet of New York introducing letters on the subject of foreign immigration by Mr. Cims. W. Elliot, former president of Harvard University, and Andrew Carnegie. The views of such men on this question are valuable to the read- ers of a Catholic paper and as they are endorsed by so high an authority s Mr. Sulzer, they are given a place in the Southern Guardian.--Editor S. G.) Immigration. Mr. Bonnet of New York--Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent to print in the Record a letter from :Mr. Charles W. Eliot relative to the im- migration question. The Speaker--The gentleman asks unanimous consent to print in the Rec- ord the letter described. Is there ob- jection? (After a pause.) Tile chair hears none. Tile letter is as follows "Cambridge, Mass., Jan. 10, 1911. ,,:My Dear Sir--Observing that the advocates of restricting immigration are again active before Congress, I beg leave to state to you as president of the National Liberal Immigration League some of the reasons which con- vince many disinterested and patriotic Americans that no further restrictions on immigration are desirable "1. The common, almost universal fact in our country is a scarcity of labor. The same complaint is heard from farms, factories and shops all over the country Immense areas in the United States are not settled at all, or are very sparsely inhabited. From New England to California the crops are not thoroughly gathered and mar- keted, because there are not hands enough to do the work.

One may see in the largo cities many poor people, but they constitnte only a small fraction of the )opulation, and, for the most part, it is not low wages that have made them poor, but drink, drugs, disease, or the premature death of the bread-winner of the family. The two main facts about the American in- dustries at% first, that labor is scarce and, secondly, that wages have been high relatively to those prevailing in other countries; that they have risen very much within the last fifty years and are still rising. "2. There is ahnost nniversal ns- sent to the proposition that every healthy, honest laborer who comes hither from other lands contributes ap- preciably to the productiveness and wealth of the country. Lately, however,: there is a disposition to make a dis- tinct;on between the skilled and the unsldlled immigrant, and .between the immigrant who comes to st'ty and the immigrant who comes for a few ),ears to hty up money enough to enal)le him to live comfortably in his fatherland, lint even an unskilled lat)orer who wvrks faithfully makes an adddtion to the wealth of the country, although not so large an addition as the skilled laborer, and every immigrant who, after a few ).ears, retnrns to his native land with his savings must have done good work for the country during his entire stay here, else he wouhl not have saved nloney enough to go home with contentedly. The unsMtlcd la- borer who only lives a few' years in the United States is no exception to the general rule that every healthy and faithful laborer is profitable to the country and that more labor is needed in every branch of American industry. "3. An educational test to restrict immigration is both misdirected and untimely. Tt is misdirected, because ability to read is no proof of either health or character. M]any entirely illiterate t)ersons are vigorous, honest and of sound judgment in affairs and in the conduct of life. It is untiulely because the right moment to apply an edacational test is on admission to the suffrage, not on admission to the coun- try. In all races the most dangerous criminals come from classes that can read an(l write, and not from the il.- literate. A test founded on ability to read will m)t keep out the worst crim- inals, and will furnish no safe guide in action to the officers charged with the execution of the existing restric- tive laws. "4. All attempts to exclnde healthy and honest immigrants are inconsist- ent with the rightful generosity of freemen toward people who wish to be free, and of working people whose con- ditions of labor are favorable toward peol}]e in other ]ands whoso conditions of labor are less favorable and who are ambitious to improve their envi- ronment by going to free America. The present people of the United States have themselves been immigrants into the fresh continent within generations still recent; and they ought to shrink. and do shrink, from imposing hard con- ditions of admission to the country on the newer immigrants who are ambi- tions to follow their example.

Some American publicists have been disquieted about immigration be- cause the now immigration is to some extent different front the old, as re- gards race and religion. They appre- hend that these newer immigrants will not settle on the land, as the older did, and will not ,be scattered among the people ho have been longer in the United States: but, rather, will live by themselves in separate quarters of towns and cities, and there maintain their social and religious peculiarities. This apprehension is based on a belief which has no foundation in fact, name- ly, that the numerous races which came to this country during the nine- teenth century, have formed, or may be expected to form, a racial amalgam or blend. It is obvious that very lit- tle blending has thus far taken place. The dfferent races remain essentially tistdnct, aot fgeographJcally, bat so- cially, and in many cases industrially. The process of assimilation begins with children born in this country and sent to American schools, and is even then very slow, particularly as regards in- termarriage. Experience during the nineteenth century shows that real as- similation will take centuries, and that amalgamation, or blending .of }'aces through intermarriage, is not only ex- traordirmrily slow, but of doubtful is- sue as to the strength and viability of the offspring In short, tile different races already in this country live be- side each other, and all produce in time good citizens of the republic, but they do not blend. The probability is that the twentieth century will exhibit the same methods and results in a pop- ulation become somewhat more various racially. "6.
