It is expected that the commission created by the President to consider the subject of naturalization will be ready to report at the next session of Congress. Numerous instances of gross fraud and error in connection with the application of the present naturalization laws have been reported by Federal officers and the inadequacy of the present laws has involved the State Department in much correspondence with foreign governments. It is well known that there have been many fraudulent and improvident naturalizations and a wholesale forgery and sale of spurious papers. The Commission in its deliberations will doubtless consider restricting naturalization to certain courts; defining the testimony necessary for naturalization; using distinctive paper to prevent counterfeiting; separating declarations of intention from final certificates; requiring specific dates as to birth, and arrival in this country; and the return of all papers at stated intervals.
