- Nicholas Murray Butler is concerned about the immigration service which he believes is one of the most important offices in the government. Butler agrees that Superintendent Fitchie shouldn't be retained and also suggests an investigation into the New York office and the Washington, D.C., office under Commissioner Powderly. Butler believes that Edward F. McSweeney is the strongest man in the immigration service.
