Accoiding to the Baltimore Sun,

looks like playing a cinch.
It is a feature
now that such strong efforts arc
being made to turn the tide ol im
migration southward that the epi
demic of violent crimes from which
the north has suffered recently have
beeu almost without exception
couiniited by Italian immigrants,
The Black Hand, the Mallia and
the Commora, it there be any dif
ference between the three, have
vied with each other in a perfect
orgy of mUrder, assault, blackmail
ing and kidnapping. The bulk ol
these crimes have been committed
by newly arrived immigrants, and
almost without exception, theci ini
tials have been Italians. Of course
it is not fair to judge a whole na
tion by its worst element. Theie
has been Italian immigration in
this country for decades and the
immigrants as a rule have made
good citizens. Starting poor as
organ grinders, fruit venders and
the like, many of them have come
up to wealth and gOCid ;position in
the business community. It used
to be the exception rather than the
rule to hear of an Italian comtnitiug
anything worse than a petty crime.
But the source of the Italian ituuii
gration has changed recently from
the north to the south of Italy and
it seems to have brought into tills
country some truly Undesirable
citizens. As this is the case and
there is much talk of turning the
newly arrived immigrants|south as
farm laborers, it may be well for
the southern states to sift this class'
of importation very carefully bOfote
accepting it. The south has had
trouble enough managing the col
ored liian and brother along this
same line aud it is ui>t worth while
to tangle up with any new racial
troubles if they can be avoided.

WM. J. Bryan at Virginia
Richmond, Va.,Oct. 2, Special—
The coming of Hon. William
Jennings Bryan to the Virginia
State Fair at Richmond, October
nth. is looked forward to with
eagerness by those interested in
the political situation. It lias been
rumored that Mr. Bryan will make
a strong political address and very
probably he will announce in pretty
general terms the platform which
he would like to see adopted by
the National Democratic Couvtn
It is barely possible Mr. Bryan
will select the Old Dominion State
from which to Issue to the country
3 sound Democratic plattorm on
which all can unite, and no more
appropriate place can be selected
than the Virginia State Fair where
will be assembled thousands of jieo
ple from various parts of the State
and the country folks who like so
well to hear good Democratic doc
trine exp(A»nde-l by such an able
orator as Mr.Bryan.
At the headquarters of the Ar
rangement Committee for Mr Bry
an's-coming, letters are pouring in
from prominent men throughout
the State accepting the invitation
extended them to servejuithw Re
ception Cominittc to welcome Mr.
Uryan to (he Old Dominion. From
present indications there will be a
record breaking crowd. Full de
tails of arrangements have not been
announced, but it
that they will be very elaborate.

When corn on the ear Is thrown to
