There are certain evils! which will follow in the train of a whole- j saie ana indiscriminate, distribu- tion of alien immigrants which the south will do well to consider. io scatter among our rural com mumties large numbers of aliens . M I O Whose standards of living are such that they are willing to work for tne lowest pOSSlDie Wage. IS tO OX- pose our native population to a competition which is distinctly of living of our American farmers intnemiaaie west are Beriousiy At - i ' . threatened by tne competition I widelv we scatter the newer immi-1 wants, the more wideRnread will be the effect of the competition with the lower arade of alien in denraaBA in th ! hirth rate among the older native nnrtionofonrnonnlation. Ameri- can fathers and mothers, as the late Gen. Francis A. Walker first pointed out, and as leading au- thorities have since reiterated, naturally shrinks from exposing 1 their sons and daughters to com- petition with those who are con- the 79 year of his age. The re tented with lower wages and lower mains were laid to rest Saturday standard of living ; and, therefore, with masonic honors at Joppa these sons and daughters are never cemetery, which is the burial tion of immigrants from southern and eastern Europe, and from Asia, throughout the south will I hasten still more the replacement I of the native by foreign stock, I which, is already proceeding rapid ly in the north. .There is not time to take up in any detalTtne Tfvidence, which exists in abundance, ot tne nn- . 1 .. -r '. . - - -. satisfactory, the unfit, the unde. sireable character of much of our present immigration. But there are two opinions which bo accurate ly describe existing conditions! that they may well be quoted in lieu of any other discussion. The ' first is that of the late Gen. Fran- cis a. waixer, who, as superin tendent of two United Stats cen suses; had exceptional opportuni ties to study immigration and its ' effects on the American people : there was a rightful presumption regarding the average immigrant that he was among the most en- i. I I AU 1 -J. J3 L I turous and courageous, of the com-1 munity from which he came. It j required no smajl energy, pru-1 dfinr!A?.fnrftthoncrhf. and nainn to 1 conduct the inquiries relating to his migration, to accumulate the necessary means, and to find nisiciiies,- Dy iner couuptJi.11.1uu wuu- way across the ' Atlantic. Today the presumption is completely re- versed. So thoroughly has the continent of En rone been crossed I by railways, so effectively has the business of emigration there been exploited, so much have the rates of railroad fare and ocean passage been reduced, that it is now among the least thriftv and nrosnerous members of any European com 90 x- iVli 4- V y-v Amioaali n.vn4.. I finds hisliest recruiting ground. Illnstration of the ease and facility with which this pipe line immi-1 - ... - . l gration is now carried on might! be given in profusiou. - Hard times here- mav momentarily check the flw; but it will not be permanently stopped so long as any difference of economic level exists between our. population and that of the most degraded com munities abroad." Of the artificial stimulation of immigration by steamship agents there is abundant evidenOe. It is perfectly clear that trie race mi gration. now going on from Europe and Asia to the United States .; is E. H. Pass Dead. A Cotton Association for Daile. Mockaville Courier, April 6tb. CO.

No cue, no pay. ,50c. largely not a J 'natural" move- ment. It is an artificial selection , by steamship agents, not of the best but the worst element ot the old world populations. , The second opinion which may be quoted is that of Hon. Wil liam Williams, lately commission er of immigration at the port of New York, than whom there can be no better authority on the character of our present immigra tion, and who says that our immi gration laws "do not reach a large Kvl tt tsfj" i m rrt terra r f a urVirt are generally undesirable because unintelligent, or low vi talityK of poor physique, abler to Perform Only the cheapest kind of manual labor, desirous of lo eating almost exclusively in the mg to reduce the standard of liv- mg of the American wage-worker, and unfit mentally or morally for eood citizenship. I believe that at least 200,000 (and probab ly more) aliens came here (last year) who, although they may be able to earn a living, yet are not wanted, will be of no benefit to the country, and wilL on the V. contrary, he a detriment, because iUn! WAamtlA will anj 1 rTX7Ql" our standards ; and. if these 200,- 000 persons could have been in duced to stay at home, nobody, not even those clamoring for more labor, would have- missed them. Their coming has been of benefit chiefly, if no t on ly , to the transpor tation companies which brought 1 them here, r Mr. Williams further says that thousands of incoming aliens are neither physically nor mentally fitted to go to tha un developed parts of our country, and "do as did the early settlers from northern Europe." Many of bur recent immigrants are too poor, too ignorant and too weak to be ntteja joi.a successxui xarui' ing life, (To be Continued. ) Ell ientz, of Rowao, Dead. More Wrecks - on the YadKtn.

I Mrs. Eliza Jan 8 Whitley, wife of the late Green D. Whitley, died at the old home place at the home of her son, near Big Lick, last Friday and was laid to rest the next day in the family grave yard. She was 91 years, 7 months and 5 days old. She was able to get aout and work-until she was 80 years old. She was an estima ble old lady and loved; by all who knew her. Five children survive, one of whom is Rebecca Curlee, of Spencer. From Monday noon until this morning, Albemarle people re ceived no mail from the outside world at all. A wreck on the Yadkin freight near New London Tuesday morning blocked the road both ways, holding up both the Whitney and Norwood passenger trains. The Whitney train trans ferred passsensers to this place and Norwood late in the after- noon, but lor some cause no mail reached this place. Another wreck followed yesterday morn- mg, tne passenger tram reaching this place about 10 o'clock last night. The wrecks are nothing of the usual order. No brie, was hurt, but several cars were derail ed and broken up, and consider able damage to freight resulted. Eli Lentz, aged $0 year and 9 months, died at home in Norwood on Wednesday evening of last week. Funeral services were con ducted the following afternoon from the Me'thodist church by a Rev. Stanford, his pastor. One of the largest congregations that ever assembled at a burial in Norwood was present. Despite the inclement weather, people came from far and near. Loved in life, he was .honored in death. He was a native of R-.wan county, but had been a resident I of this for fifty years or more. He rear ed a family of sons and daugthers who have all grown into noble manhood and womanhood. Of fourteen children ten are now living: Adolphus Lentz, of Salis bury ; Jno.

Howard came home Sunday night and will spend sometime in the city taking care of his arm. The Lutheran congregation has purchased a lot from Dr. Riley on State street for a site for .the Lutheran church. Rev. Fulen wider tells ThejDispatch that it is expected to begin work at once and that the churchwilf be erect ed this summer. It is practically certain that the people of Thomasville will vote at their election of the 2nd of May for the subscription of $75,000 of stock in the Thomasville add Glen Anna railway, to enable that road to push through to Whitney. J. W.I Boring has resigned as cashier of the National Bank of Lexingtcn and R. L. Burkhead, who has been president has been elected cashier to fill the vacancy, AlsoiJ. W.

A Winston dispatch last week stated Marshal Carroll spent the week in this county, Dayie and Rowan, on the trail of people who have not regarded the internal revenue regulations. While on his trip he made one dozen arrests and the defendants gave bail for their appearance at Federal court at Greensboro and Statesville. Rev. S. D. Swaim, whocomes to Lexington from Cooleemee and Jerusalem Baptist churches in Davie county to serve Piney, Reeds and Holloway ' churches in this county, has purchased two acres of land from Capt. F. C. Robbins, and will begin tc build a home about the first of next month. The company organized to man ufacture desks here has about co'mpleted plans for one of the most important industrial under takings ever attempted in the county. The manufacture of roller top desks is only one thing the company purposes to do. It has decided to acquire 500 acres of land lying two miles from town, along the Southern railway. Part of the property is well timbered and will be cleared, the timber being used in the manufacture ) of desks. About 2o acres will be used for the factory- site leaving room along the railroad for addi tional plants. On tne west side oi tne railroad seventy nve acres will be laid off in lots, 50x200 feet, and the company will build houses for the operatives. These will be sold to the working people on the building and loan plan. Anotner portion oi tract, also, on the west of the railroad, adjoining theLexington andSalisbury public road, consisting of 200 acres will be divided lnio o acre tracts on which truck,- fruit and pbultry will be producod. The operatives for the desk -factory will cultivate these little farms.- They will be skilled workmen, Germans, Swedes, etc., the best of the foreign people. It is estimated that thrifty people will easily make $1,000 annually from the 5 acre tracts. .
