IMMIGRANTS ARRIVE IN CANADA IMMIGRANTS The greatest number of Europe's emigrants to Canada are served by the C. P. 0. S., and this year the closing of the waterway of the St. Lawrence for the winter season saw the conclusion of a record season. From May 3rd, when the "Vic- sailing up the St. Lawrence opened the cummer season till No vember 28th, when the departure of the "Empress of France" from Que bee ligoalized its end, the thirteen vessels serving the Atlantic (and the temporarily loaned "Prinz Fried- rich which made four trips upon the company's flag) made suv- entv-six trans-Atlantic voyages. In the course of these trips from Europe, a total of passengers were carried to Canada. From records kept, nearly ot these were newcomers to Canada, who declared their intention of remaining in the country, mak- ing permanent homes and becoming Canadian citizens. The grand total of nnssensers, cast and west bound, was Of these Incoming embryo citi- zens, overwhelming majority were British from the United King- dom, whilst our allies France and Belgium, contributed a more than GETTING READY TO LAND AT QUEBEC ordinary quota to the flow. Den- mark, Sweden, Norway and Holland were likewise well represented, ami lesser streams proceeded from Spain, Poland, Jtaly, Greece. Finland, Rou- mania and other European countries. The striking characteristic of the crowds seen landing at Canadian ports from these vessels has been the consistent hiith type of emigrant, in harmony with the Dominion's policy of selected immigration. New settlers from the British Isles have been.of this order, and the steady stream that has made a course from the port of ontry to the fertile west- ern plains, has taken with it much capital. From France, Belgium, and Hol- land most of the entrants have been specialized agriculturalists. The Scandinavian countries con- tributed many experienced farmers. For the purpose of advising the large numbers of travellers who have no knowledge of English, an interpreter has been placed on each of the tailing from Euro- pean ports. Another action towards the same end is an inauguration during the year of the appointment of a Coloni zation Agent by the Department of Colonization and Development. Thi? agent meets ail and renders every possible assistance to travel- lers, with their baggage, answering questions, giving inforn'Etion on the wide variety of questions demanded and generally advising them on the new life they are about to take up under conditions strange to many of them. Preparations have been made for the still greater rush presaged in the spring from European countries, more especially from the British Isles. The passenger tonnage on the Atlantic at the end of the late sum- mer season was about This is to be increased in opening months of the new-summer season' by the addition of the "Mpntcalm" and each of tons, 666 feet long, 70 feet broad, anil a speed of 10% knots. With the closing of the summer season and the inception of Atlantis voyages terminating at St. John, C. P. 0. S. instituted a Marconi wire- less service of palely Canadian to their vessels on the seas.
