THE ASYLUM BUSINESS.
-The uuatbsr of people in the United State who would
rempve the tar to Asiatic immigration is. we believe.
relatively small. No doubt a bis majority would say
that Chlnpse and Japanese should be excluded or very
much restricted because millions of laborers who are
willing to work for less than the American wage scale
could hardly come In here without lowering me condition
of the roaident labor with which thoy competed.
Now If wo are fn the asylum business that Is all wrong.
If wc have a mission to provide totter opportunities for
those who are Ill-conditioned at home then obviously wo
eaa best fulfill that missloa ly offering pur opportunities
to "those who are worst-conditioned anjl can profit most
by them. One does not start aq orphan asylum to shelter
well.to-do-chlldren. Of course practically we nave never
been fnltbe asylum butluess but have only speciously
p j ti tended to be. We have always excluded those wnose
presence we judged likely to be injurious to us.
U is In the light of that policy fbat immigration as the
European war 'affects It must be considered. The war
has pretty comprehensively confounded the propbscles
lnadvf regarding it. As au economic critic observed it la
