portation of the immigrants arriving
hero to the various island plantations,
coupled with the firmly rooted idea
on the part of the laborers that they

city's colony of unemployed and nul
lify in a great measure the work of
the immigration bureau.
It appears, as in tho case of the
'Russian families now at the station,
