nothing could be done here in Galvess I
ton in the matter, as the contract la
borers were alredy in the United Sateas
before they were taken on board the i

upon the subject. The act of Congregm
of Feb., 18th last, punishes only ttie
master of the vessel who knowingly
permits and brings to land within the
United States from any freight port
any of the contract laoorers specified
in the law.
Falling in ability to move the law
the Knights here determined upon
trying the feets of moral suasion, and
with this object in view a commitee
waited on the stone cutters almost as
soon as they came from the vessel.
They represented that convict labor
was being employed on the capitol
building, and through this sought to
influence the foreigners front aiding
and abetting the contractors from
doing that which the committee den
ounced in unmeasured terms as an
outrage on honest labor.
The results of the talk will not be
manifested until Sunday, and will be
determined by the action of the for,
signers whether they go or stay.
They gave no expression of opinion to
