Are you faxing any attention to
the immigration situation? Do you
know that mne-tuuhs of the Rolshe

States can hardly speak English,
have hardly any knowledge of this
country beyond the region that their
leg.v and eyes and ears take them?
lis Island is the New York entry
point of most of the immigrants.
When they land they find beautiful
buildings all ready for their recep
tion. These buildings are kept spot
lessly clean. There are playgrounds
for the children, a nursery for the
smaller ones, nurses and doctors for
the sick and a magnificent hospital
for those that need it.
Despite this welcome, the minute
they land on the mainland from the
Ellis Island paradise they receive
and imbibe ' the poison of anarchy
and revolution." Before thev have

the recall was adopted so as to give
the public the opportunity to replace
a servant who is believed to be in
competent or unfaithful. If it is the
judgment of the public that our com

plain and obvious course is to remove
them. If a man is not doing his duty
the sooner he is dismissed the better.

exceedingly rough to travel.
Recall for the Public Service
Active steps toward the recall of
the public service commission are
being taken in Portland. Only one
commissioner is subject to recall at
present but the two other members
may be recalled, if the people desire,
after a lapse of six months.
Resentment toward the comnhv
sion grows out of a series of acf by
the commission but is chiefly found
ed on the ruling of the commission
in favor of the heavy increase in tel
eprone rates. At a time when other
prices are falling and an unemploy
ment situation confronts the state the
commission has authorized the phone
company to advance rates an aver
age of 30 per cent or more. In some
instances the increase has been 100
per cent, it is claimed.
AH this in the face of an audited
report by the Bell system showing
that its net profits for last year were
the largest in historv, being over
$50,000,000 after taking off some
$65,000,000 for depreciation and the
further showing that telephone stock
is far stronger in the market than
railroad stock or other industrial
stocks or even liberty bonds.
In the julgment of this newspaper
the public service commission acted
very incompetently in the telephone
case. This view may be entirely
wrong but why in the name of com
mon sense does a utility corporation
that has just finished a most glo
rious financial year need a rate boost
at a time when labor and material
costs are declining?

Another Alleged ' Consump
One of the saddest things we know
of is the perennial announcement by
some faker or some over-enthusiastic
student that "a cure has at last been
discovered for consumption." They
all turn out bad. Not that we would
not hail with delight a true cure, or
that we would even hint to the scien
tists that they halt their quest for a
cure. But these fake announcements
raise hopes in millions of sufferers,
and their friends and relatives, that
are doomed to disappointment.
Now we have a cable from Paris
that a cure for tuberculosis has been
discovered in that city. We hope it
is the real goods, but the chances
are that it is not the hoped-for cure.
Everybody's heart goes out to
those who are battling the dreaded
white plague. These people are real
fighters real heroes. They never
give up until the enemy takes its toll.
Our advice to the tubercular and
their friends is to continue to follow
the instructions of their physicians. '
Do what your doctor says, get all the
fresh air possible do not overdo, rest
as much as possible, don't worry.
And fight on and on.
