Washington, Nov. 9.—Superintend- '
ent of Immigration Stump, in his annual
report, says that for the fiscal year ended ;
June 80, 1898, 440,793 immigrants ar
rived in this country. Os these, 439,730 '
were landed and 1,063 were debarred. ;
Five hundred and seventy-seven persons
were returned to the countries whence
they came, having become public
charges within one year after arriving
in the United States. Os the number
who came ■to this country during the :
year, 57,897 could not read, 59,580 could 1
not write and 51,308 could neither read
nor write. The number of immigrants
was 141,034 less than the number arriv
ing during the preceding fiscal year. The
greatest decrease was from the follow
ing countries: Russia, 40,791; Hungary,
12,732; Poland, 24,162; Bohemia, 2,428,
making a total of 80,113, while Italy
shows an increase of only 10,514.
The decrease of immigration, says the
report, is attributable, in great part, to
cholera. During March and April, 1893,
large numbers came over, and in the
first part of May as many as 20,000 im
migrants were reported to fcbe upon the
ocean at one time, destined to the United
States, their object being to arrive be

in the act passed March 8, 1893, went
into effect. The volume of immigration
Would have exceeded previous years had
the law not been in force. Great num
bers of the most undesirable classes
abandoned their purpose to emigrate or
were refused transportation.
“An addition might be made to our
immigration laws,” says the reports,
“giving power to courts having criminal
jurisdiction to deport all aliens who,
within a period of two years from the
date of landing, are convicted of any
crime or misdemeanor which, in the
opinion of the court, renders them un-
