Italians Ootac South.
Washington. April 13.—Officials of
the Immigration bureau say the recent
announcement of the arrival of S/wo
Italians on a single ship carries noth-
ing that is alarming in connection
with the immigration problem. Ex-
perts of the government who have fol-
lowed the matter say that sotnc of
the best immigrants which are coming
this country are those from
northern Italy. They come from a
i. sunny climate, snd find homes
in the southern states. They are mt-
oral agriculturists, and with the per-
fected method of truck gardening in
Italy nnd the improved nnil broader
opportunities offered by the big plan-
tations in the south, they liecome de-
sirable residents. The emigration
from Ireland or the ltritish isles has
almost disappeared. When asked as
to the reason of this, the immigration
officials say that there are few Iriah
who con Id comply with the immigra-
tion laws of the I'nited Stntes left in
that country, as the |M>pulation lias
dwindled from A.onn.nno to less than
half that numlier. The few emigrants
from Ireland come from the city of
Dublin, and they seek homes in the
larger cities of the I'nited States
where relatives have preceded them.
