"Washington, Nov. 1. - The following f rom Hanna, American consul at Puerto Rico, has been received by the assistant secretary of state: "I am convinced that young men seeking work or positions of any kind should not come to Puerto Rico. Such persons as carpenters, meehaircs, and laborers, of al grades, should Ftay away from Puerto Rico. No peĆ­ son should come here without plenty of money to pay board bilis and have enough to take him back to his home in the United States. This is the most densely populated country in the world. There are several hundred thousand working Puerto Ricans ready to fill the vacant jobs and at a low price."
