Mr. Quinn, of New York, remarked; ,
We know that for tho pant few years a
class of immigrant have been permitted to
land that has brought incalculable Injury to
our working men and women. Aa a utone
outtor I know that time and again hundreds

Europo hired by adTertiuomenta, which is
one of tha plana the bounce of ihuj countiy
adopt to oTorome the American 'jmeoliaadoa
and drive thom and their farailios even to a
condition of starvation. It ia a notable fact
that every year thounandJ of maaona and
stone outtora coma to thla country from
Scotland and England with tho first dawn
of spring and leave again with the first ao
poarance of f roai in the fall, and tkr.t they
will get employment before the honest
American citizen because they wiUaooopt

from this grent government ought to be

As the roputlij of Ilome went down ty

I am oppoHcd to thia meanure because I
