Washington, Nov. 1. - The following from 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 caTpenters, mechanics, and laborers, oí al grades, should stay away from Puerto Rico. No person should come here without plenty of money to pay board bilis and have enough to take him back ito his home in the "United States. This is the most densely populated country in the world. There are several hundred thousand working Puerto Rioans ready to 1111 the vacant jobs and at a low price."
