CONGRESS KILL HAVE TO ACT

The abuses which have ifurlng the
joint few days chiiructcrly.od the oper
ations of naturalization court In this
county and In Luzerne nouses equally
' distributed, we should guess, between
the two political parties, although dis
graceful to both hnve renewed atten
tion to the law upon this Important sub
ject of naturalization. The laws ullke
uf state and nation ure plain and ex
plicit, anil no Judge of ordinary com
prehension could possibly err as to his
duty. The following is the text of the
law of the nation defining who may be
naturalized and how It may be done:
"He shall, at the time of his appli
cation to be admitted, declare on oath,
tie fore some one of the courts above
specified, that he will suport the con
stitution of the United States, and
that he absolutely and entirely re
nounces and abjures all iilleijiunee and
fidelity to every foreign prince, po
tentate, state or sovereignly, ami par
ticularly by name to the prince, po
tentate, state or wovereignty of which
he was before a citizen or subject,
which proceeding fdinll he recorded by
the court, ft shall appear to the sat
isfaction of the court admitting such
alien that he has resided within the
I 'lilted States live years at least, and
within the stale or territory, where
such court is at the time held, one year
at least, and that during that time he
lias behaved as u man of good moral
character, attached to the principles
uf the Constitution of the L'nitcd Stales
and well disposed to the good order
and happiness of the same; but the
unit of the applicant shall in no case
he allowed to prove his residence."
The national law is thus emphatic
that the court must satisfy Itself not
only as to the residence of thg,-allen,
but as to the character of tlio man who
proposes to acquire the priceless boom
of American citizenship. The judge is
required by the law to fully satisfy
himself that the applicant for citizen
ship "has liehuved us n man of good
moral character, attached to the prin
ciples of the Constitution of the United
States, and well disposed to the good
order and happiness of the same."
The State I.uw.
tin the same subject the law of our
slate, enacted Jan. 80. 1N74, Is even
more emphatic In requiring the careful
scrutiny of applicants for naturaliza
tion. The following Is the text of the
"it any prothonotary, clerk or the
deputy of either, or any other person
shall aflix the 'seal of any court to
any naturalization paper, or permit the
same to be alllzed. or give out, or
cause or permit such naturalization
paper to be given out In blank,
whereby It may he fraudently used,
or furnish a naturalization certificate
1u any person, who shall not have been
duly examined and sworn in open court
in the presence of some of the Judges
thereof, according to the act of con
gress, or shall aid In, connive at or In
any way permit the issue of any frau
dulent naturalization certificate, he
shall be gullly of a misdemeanor."
Congress Failed to Act.
An effort was made at the Inst ses
sion of congress to strengthen the fed
eral provisions touching this subject
iovernor-elect Gates, of Alabama
who, as a particular champion of this
reform, In the last three congresses
thoroughly mastered the details of
the subject, framed a bill which the
house judiciary commltte favorably re
ported, but in the flurry and crush In
cident to adjournment the Oates meas
ure went over until a more favorable
opportunity. Speaking of the matter,
"Air. Oates said: "Our naturalization
laws are exceedingly loose and uncer
tain, especially in the matter of neg
ligence on the part of a great many of
tne courts, which now have the right
to naturalize aliens. An Investigation
by the judiciary committee brought
many glaring abuses on the subject to
light. If It is worth anything to be
an American citizen then thelawshould
be amended so that citizenship shall be
restricted to persons worthy of the
"The greatest abuses have grown out
. of the fact that under our present
law an alien may readily declare his
intention to become a citizen, and in
most of the states he is readily endowed
with all or very nearly ull the privi
leges of a citizen. And In many eases
persons who have thus declared thel
intention to become voters neglect to
lake out final papers of naturalization
The bill before the house reported
from the judiciary committee restrict
ed naturalization to the federal courts
of the United States and to a stitliclent
Mimhcr of stale courts of record,
cniiris which have a clerk and a seal.
JiiJces Not Thought NecesMiry.
"In some of the state courts thet
have been entrusted with the jurlsdh
lion Under the present law, subordinate
oltlcers have gone forward with the
process of naturalization without even
Hie presence of a judge. In one of
1 he investigations we conducted on
this subject, we found that hi one of
the courts of (he city of Hrooolyn there
existed without the knowledge of the
judge, a sort of secret organization
engaged In the business of milking
citizens for pay.
"Thejie court subordinates had con
trol of The seal of the court und the
fiirms of certificates, and would for
$:'5 make any man n full fledged clt
izen three dnys after he arrived in this
country. These abuses grow out of the
provision of the law which allows
this declaration of Intention on the
part of the alien. The bill before the
house would have had no retroactive
effort but it provides on Its passage
that five years residence and good be
linvlor In this country should be nec
essary to entitle anyone to nuturaliza-
"The bill provided that a man after
he had resided five years und should
have tiled a petition In proper form set
ting forth .his claim under the provis
ions of the bill, in a court having jur
isdiction, giving particulars as to age,
nativity, residence, etc., that he is not
an Anarchist or a polygamist, and
lias never been convicted of a fel
oulous offense, or uny crime involving
moral turpitude, and when that is done
the United' States district, uttorney
shall he notified by the clerk and shall
leny the allegations so as to make It
incumbent on the applicant to produce
proof..! f the proof Is sufficient and Halls
lies the Judge he makes, an order or
decree admitting persons to natural
ization, and there is tin end or It.
To Prevent Krutid.
' "The hill is so drawn as to prevent
fraud and imposition, and at the same
time to nllow every worthy alien to be
admitted to American citizenship.
would like to see the bill amended so
as to require each court when It admit
led a man to naturalization to send
a certificate of. the fact to the state
department, where it should bo filed
for future use. Air. iiayard when sec-
rotary of state advocuted such an
amendment to the law and I am In
favor of it. Hut because It would In
vulva Borne nddltlonul expense it met
with opposition In the house and was
left out of the pending bill. The prac
tice of Imposing on the courts to ob
tain naturalization, and in some
places a practice participated In by
political parties when 'elections are
Impending, of mustering up great
crowds und hordes of these foreign
ers, many of whom are too Ignorant to
know even who the president of the
United States is, and running them
through some sort of a naturalization
mill, and faking them like driven cat
tle to the polls and voting them, Is
something which ought not to be tol
erated in this great American repub
lic of ours.
"I noticed not long ago that in an
examination In one of the New York
courts an applicant for citizenship
stated that George Washington was
now the president of the United
States. My bill provides that one of
the qualifications of citizenship shall be
that the applicant must be able to read
the constitution of the United States
In some language, either English or
his own native tongue. That is about
as low a standard as we can tlx.
.Need of Immigration Sifting.
Mr. Oates then went on to say that
he hoped an immigration bill would
become u law before congress adjourn
ed. Speaking on this subject he said:
1 am In lavur, and always have been
n favor, of laws regulating immigra
tion so as to exclude unworthy persons
sliding in the United States. The
lis uf our loose system of naturaliza
tion, us well as of our inefficient im
migration laws are shown by the last
census returns. Taking the penltentl
ury convicts of the United States and
excluding colored persons, and there
are more convicts foreign born than
native horn. In the charitable insti
tutions there are nearly as many for
eign born inmates ;ns native born.
In almshouses and poor houses, 41
per cent, of the Inmates are of for
eign birth. These figures do not
prove that Immigration to this coun
try Is undesirable, but they do prove
that a great many immigrants have
been coming here In recent years who
ought to have been kept out.
"The testimony taken by the f ord
Investigating committee some years
ago shows that 75 per cent, of all the
Inmates of the lunatic asylums ana
poor houses of . the states which that
committee examined were of foreign
birth. The nuine 'Amerlcun citizen'
should be esteemed ns thatof a'Roman'
when Home was the mlBtress of the
world. Such pride can never be felt
by our foreign-born citizens, with few
exceptions, until the process of confer
ring this great boon upon an alien is
attended with more solemnity and scru
tinized more closely than at present.
In New York, according to the la
test census there were tiii.lCH foreign
born citizens over 21 years of age who
could not speak the English language,
and who hud not then become citizens,
but who have probably reached that
stage by this time."
Congress Slow Xi Act.
There Is small probability that the
naturalization bill, pending un im
portant election, will receive imy con
sideration from the house. The cinn-
mltlee on suffrage of the New York
constitutional convention recently
agreed upon a provision requiring a
residence of sixty days after natural
ization before a new citizen can be en
titled to vote. That committee also had
before it u proposition that a represen
tative of the state should be detailed
from the district attorney's ollice to
look alter persons who present them
selves In a slate court and apply for
naturalization papers. This latter pro
vision is similar to the one in the
Oates bill. That requiring a residence
of sixty days after naturalization be
fore a new citizen can be entitled to
vote, will be offered ns an amendment
to the bill when it comes up In the
house, if it ever does ugaln.
The Situation in I.uckuwunna.
Commenting upon the local aspect
of this question not long ago the Oly
phant Uazette said: "Statistics show
a wonderful increase in citizenship in
the coul regions within a few years.
The Increase In Lackawanna county,
since ly.rj, is said to be 10.OUO .due to
the k'tipid increase In population of
non-English-speaking foreigners. Close
observers say that our courts could
assist In purifying the ballot box ir
they guarded against issuing citizens'
papers to none but competent persons.
There Is a growing disposition among
several judges throughout the state,
to exercise the discretion allowed them
by the naturalization laws. Judges
Schuyler, of Northhampton, Yerkes, of
l'.ucks. and Craig, of Carbon, have
taken a possitive stand on this ques
tion and decline to issue papers to ap
pllcants who do not possess the ne
cessary requirements. Besides the resi
dence quail lictttlon, the statutes pro
vide that applicants must be men of
good moral character who are attacnea
to the constitution or the united states.
'A certain class of aliens, who do not
understand the language and who never
saw the constitution of the united
States, are naturalized in our courts
every year. How can these men be at
tached to the constitution wnen tney
can neither read nor understand it?
The majority of them know absolutely
nothing of the principles upon wnicn
this government Is formed, and do not
care to learn. They are simply driven
to the courts in charge of ward poli
ticians and interpreters, secure papers
which give them the right to vote as the
politicians direct, und that s all. sucn
men as these should not be granted the
privilege to vote and perhaps decide
elections until they understand what
thev are doing. They should llrst learn
the language of the country ana im
bibe some little knowledge or our insti
tutions before acquiring the right or
citizenship. No doubt the majority of
them will in time become goou citizens.
Hut at present the courts should ex
ercise the greatest care In passing upon
the applications or men wno uon t Know
what they apply for."
When comrades seek sweet country haunts
O suns and skies and clouds or June,
And flowers of June together.
Ye cuiumt rival for one hour
iietolvii's brluht blue weather:
When loud the bumble-bee makes haste,
Helaled, thrlllless vagrant,
And goldenrod Is dying fast,
And lunes with grupes ure fragrant;
When gentians roll their fringes light,
To save them for the morning.
And chestnuts fall from satin burrs
Without a sound of warning;
When on the ground red apples llo
In piles like Jewels shining,
And redder still on old stone walls
Are leaves of woodbine twining;
When ull the lovely wayside things
Their white-winged seeds are sowing.
And In the Held:), still green and fair,
..ate aftermaths are growing:
When springs run low, and on the brooks,
In Idle, golden Treigniing,
Blight leaves sift noiseless in the hush
(ir woods, for whiter waiting.
When comrades seek sweet country
By twos and twos together.
And count like misers, hour by hour,
October's bright blue weather.
O suns and skies and (lowers of June,
Count ull your boasts together,
Love loveth best of ull the year
October's blight blue weather.

NEWS OF THE CYCLERS.
One of the grandest schemes ever pro
posed to boom cycling is the cycling path
from Boston to Chicago. It is perfectly
feasible and may be an actual fact within
a few years.
Le Veloce says that the prizes at the
races at Sevres (Alpes-Maritimes) con
sisted of: Princlpul race, first prize, the
finest hen In the country; second prize, six

lllcycllng hns brousrht lots of business
to men in various lines of trade. The liv
ery stable men, however, have suffered
heavily by the popularity of the wheel,
and their tale of woe Is long and loud.
Joey Schotlelil ami Tnmmv Reloh. both

Pittsburg's clubs are arranging for a
mass meeting of wheelmen to luke action
regarding proposed ordinances restrict
ing the use of the blcvele. and to protest
uguinst any legislation which muy be
considered prejudicial to their Interests.
A new cause of comolalnt airnlnst the
much-abused cyclist has been discovered
by one Daniel Mutton, an Knglish cycler,
who is under the Impression that thirty
men on bicycles pursue him through the
night. He therefore goes armed with a
revolver und a. short Iron nokor. and has
uppealed to the Southampton 'poMte' force
It Is strange, says' aii Knglish cycling
paper, that the royal blood of England
should almost entirely tuboo the cycle
when nearly every other European line
enraptured with it. The king of the
Belgians Is a well-known rider and then
we have the little Uueen Wllhelmlna. the
czarewltz, Princess Waldemur and Curl of
Denmark, the Princes Georee and Nich
olas of Ureece. Even the khedivo of Egypt
has his silver-plated bicycle.
It Is un open Question whether cycling
will maintain its hold upon the affections
of the llckle French public, but now, at
all events, the Interest in It is all ab
sorbing. In Paris it supports two daily
morning papers, Le Velo, with u circula
tion of iO.WW copies guaranteed, and Paris

ber of readers, to Bay nothing of Innum
