The "American party," organized in
San Francisco, has some good points in
its platform, coupled with other and in
consistent matter, that will expose it
to critism and limit its following and
therefore its effectiveness. In adopt
ing a resolution that the laws should
be so amended as to prevent the com
ing to our shores of all aliens who are
criminal or paupers, the convention
does not seem to know that such laws
are in existence, and that though
there is difficulty in enforcing them, a
great many unaesiraDie immigrants
are excluded under these provisions.
The new party also proposes a repeal
of the naturalization laws and legisla
tion requiring all citizens to vote
two things that do not hang well to
gether. Compulsory voting implies
the necessity of .having all men at
tend to their duties as citizens; a re
fusal to naturalize foreigners would
create a constantly growing class of
aliens who would have no right to
vote and would be quite as obnoxious
on that account as citizens who neg
lected to do so. The platform, on the
whole, is very crude, and is of public
interest only as it shows the existence
of a feeling that something needs to
be done in the better regulation of
immigration and naturalization.
