Itegardless of congressional action. Secretary of Labor Davis will act promptly to release more than 8,000 Immigrants now held on ships In American ports. Secretary Davis believes, as a result of a conference with Attorney (Jeneral Daugherty, tbnt be is authorized to release Immigrants, otherwise Qualified, on bond or upon their cwn recognizance. I'ronipt action, he believes, has become necessary to prevent the outbreak of serious epidemics. As these S.000 immigrants are in ex cess of the quotas permitted to come to the United States during June, under the. Johnson act. they will be deducted from the total number of Immigrants that will he permitted to iand this year. The greater part of the excess arrivals, Secretary Uavlssald, are ' Italians and ToUsli Jews. Csrlls Action Humanitarian. Secretary Davis pointed oHt that not only was action to permit the binding of immigrants now In port dictated by humanitarian considerations, but that every Immigrant has the right to appeal ngn.in.st deportation to a special court of assizes. If the detision of this court Is adverse, a further appeal may be tnken to the secretary of labor. Mr. Davis pointed out that if appeals were entered by the number of immigrants now detained on ships nt would American ports, these car-eswamp the Department of Labor for the next six months. Ronds for temporary admission of the Immigrants will probably be tised nt $300. In special cases, where Immigrants would be admissible but for the Johnson restriction act, they may be admitted on their own recognizance. Secretary Davis sahbi that ecrtlfi. cates nf arrival at anlAme'rlcan port bad been Issued to the unprecedented number of 10,004 persons during Mny.
