Statistics submitted in the report of labor commissioner Wrigh t. Washington nov. 16.-Hon. Carroll d. Wright commissioner of labor in charge of the eleventh census has transmitted to the Secretary of the Interior a special report on the statistics of occupations. The census bulletin on occupations issued More than a year and a half ago gave Only the Bare numbers of persons engaged in remunerative work at the census of 1890, but this special report presents detailed information. It shows for the first time in census work the number of coloured persons engaged in each occupation separate and distinct from the native and foreign White elements of the population and other hitherto a compiled figures. The most interesting feature of the report relates to the question of the unemployed. These figures simply show the aggregate number of persons unemployed for it different length of time and to a very considerate extent probably at different times during the census year. They do not show the net period after making allowances for the time when not engaged at their principal or usual occupation during which their services May have been utilized at some other kind of work.

There were 22,735,661 persons ten years of age and Over engaged in gainful occupations in 1890, of whom 18,821,090 were males and 3,914,571 females. Of these 3,013,127 males and 510,613 females or a total of 3,523,730 persons unemployed at their principal occupations during some part of the census year ending May 31, 1890. Of the whole number of persons so employed 3,818,865 were unemployed from one to three months 1,368,418 from four to six months and 336,447 from seven to twelve months. This is equivalent approximately to 1,139,672 persons unemployed at their principal occupations for the entire twelve months and this number would represent 5.01 per cent of the total number of persons engaged in gainful occupations in 1890. Divided As to sex the approximate number of males unemployed at their principal occupations for the entire census year was 972,000, representing 5.16 per cent of the whole number of males at work while the approximate number of females unemployed at their principal occupations during the same period was 167,672, representing 4,28 per cent of the whole number of females at work.
