(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

Amendment of the Johnson Immigration Act to permit the unlimited entry into this country of Northern Europeans, although still maintaining the bars against the Southern and Eastern Europeans, was advocated at the convention here of the Loyal Orange Institution, which consists of American descendants of immigrants from the North of Ireland.

The expulsion of immigrants who have lived in this country for ten years without becoming citizens, also was advocated, and one resolution passed by the Orangemen demanded that foreign language newspapers publish translations of their contents, as an aid to the Americanization of their readers.

Nathan Straus, Col. Michael Friedsam, Dr. Stephen S. Wise and Louis Wiley were among those named on the committees for the Canadian Exposition to be held in New York in January.
