average annual number of males actually admitted) we secure column 9, showing the annual average number of males who would have been excluded had the 5 per cent. limitation principle been in force.

The number of immigrant children admitted during the five years ending June 30, 1915, may be secured by subtracting the sum of the figures given in Table I columns 3 and 4 from the corresponding figures given in column 2.

In order to show in more detail the working of the 5 per cent. limitation plan, Tables III and IV have been added dealing with Japan, China and Italy for each year from 1911 to 1915.

POINTS TO NOTICE

1. The proposals of this pamphlet would have imposed more rigid restriction not only upon Japanese but also upon Chinese than is imposed by the present laws and arrange

ments.

2. The restriction upon Italians is particularly striking. But note the large disparity between Italian male and female immigrants (Table III, columns 4 and 5).

3. The plan here proposed if in force would have imposed no restriction upon Hebrew immigration.

The average immigration from Europe for the past five years was, of course, seriously disturbed by the striking decrease for 1915 because of the war. Allowance must be made for this factor.

5. The restriction of the immigration of men will, of course, sooner or later affect that of women and

children.

6. In column 6, the figure 1,000 should be substituted in each place where the 5 per cent. rate would allow an immigration less than this amount, in harmony with the proposal paragraph (d) on page 457.

7. The total annual average immigration of males from those countries whose actual immigration was less than their permissible maximum amounted to about 170,000, while

the total permissible annual immigration of males from those countries that exceeded their permissible maximum amounted to about 136,000. If the immigration, therefore, of the past five years had been regulated by the policy set forth in this pamphlet, the average immigration of males from all countries would have been about 306,000 annually, instead of the average of 518,000 that actually were admitted.
