The point which Secretary Weeks makes is a sound one, but the soundness of the Secretary's contention does not mitigate the distress and annoyance caused by errors in the official lists.

these offices "are business agencies of the Government in purpose and ought to become so in fact." To this end he recommends an Act of Congress. All friends of the merit system will heartily indorse this. Our postmasters should be put beyond the possibility of a reactionary order which would reverse the progress already made.

in specific plans to put down violence and cruelty and establish good relations between the races.

As to the facts, Governor Dorsey laments Georgia's record of the past; 418 lynchings since 1885 is a frightful record, greater than that of any other State. In the last two years, he says, there have been 135 instances in Georgia of “Negroes lynched, Negroes held in peonage, Negroes driven out by organized lawlessness, and Negroes subjected to individual acts of cruelty," while in only two of the cases cited was crime against white women involved.

The remedies suggested and outlined by Governor Dorsey include: thorough investigation and publicity by Georgians, not outsiders; the organization of white and Negro committees on race relations; compulsory education for both races; the repeal of existing laws that permit peonage; a State Constabulary to be sent wherever violence is threatened; a commission of judges to inquire into lynching; the drawing of juries from the State at large in lynching cases; and perhaps the infliction of a fine upon a county where a lynching has taken place.

All these suggestions are open to discussion; out of them should come some concrete action and reform from within rather than from without the State.

It may be something more than a coincidence that these suggestions come from a Governor who, while the State's Attorney, had the bitter experience of seeing his prosecution of the Frank case rouse the mob spirit among the people. Georgia needs reform in this; and no one has better reason to know it than Governor Dorsey.


President to throw the Post Office Department back to the spoilsman.

The President's rejoinder of May 10 is in the form of an Executive Order. Mr. Harding's act is in line with his pledge, given during the Presidential campaign, to stand by the merit system.

There are over .52,000 postmasters. Of these, the nearly 40,000 fourth-class postmasters are already by law under Civil Service examination rules. The remainder are under the rules only by Executive Order; 700 are first-class postmasterships; over 2,600, second-class; and nearly 9,600, third-class.

If the receipts of post offices are above a certain amount they are of the first class and the postmasters' salaries are $3,200 or more; postmasters in offices of the second class (with a smaller minimum of receipts) receive a salary of $2,300 or more; those of the third class, a salary of $1,000 or more; those of the fourth class, a salary of less than $1,000.

President Wilson put the first three classes under Civil Service examination rules, precedent to appointment, as Congress had already done with respect to the fourth class. There has been much inquiry as to whether President Har. ding would repeat the order.

He does, but he lets down the bars a little. Instead of Mr. Wilson's ruling to submit to the President the first name on an eligible list of candidates who have passed a Civil Service exam

virtually the same form as the measure passed by the preceding Congress. By a "pocket veto" President Wilson allowed this bill to die-that is, he took no action on it. When it was passed, The Outlook called it a mechanical and mediæval measure.

The bill limits immigration for the next thirteen months to three per cent of the number of foreign-born persons of any nationality in the United States as determined by the census of 1920. This would give us some 75,000 potential propagandists from Germany and 52,000 from Russia. We would get many times as many Germans as French, indeed not as many French as we are now admitting. We would get but 1,482 persons from Belgium and only 139 from Serbia.

In the New York "Evening Post” Mr. M. W. Alexander, Director of the Na. tional Industrial Conference Board, has published an interesting and suggestive survey of our immigration. He shows that, according to the Immigration Commissioner's report, during the preceding fiscal year

some 430,000 immigrant aliens were admitted into this country and over 288,000 immigrant aliens de parted, leaving a net alien immigrant increase of over 141,000. Mr. Alexander thinks that the present increase of net immigrant alien population will not prove to be as great as rumored.

The bill would permit about 350,000 immigrants to enter and would assign to the major countries the following percentages: Germany

4.6 During the operation of the proposed legislation, affirms Mr. Alexander, eighteen per cent from Denmark and seventy-three per cent from Belgium of the normal annual arrivals would have to be rejected (these countries send most of their immigrants to our farming areas); and fifty-nine per cent from France would have to be refused ad. mittance, The bill is thus not only
