It is remarkajjle .that Canada, during the three years and more thnl It has been at war, has received about threo hundred thousand IniniiKrants. anil that tho last fiscal year .witnessed a 60 per cent Increase over the previous year. As would have been expected British immigration has been very small In volume. Tlie'following table shows the decline from tho bumper year, 1912-13. It is a liUle misloadlnj;. perhaps, in regard-to. the first year of war, owing Ingjo the fact that, the fiscal year beginning April 1st, the major part of the ImmigraUbn ^easoa~the spring and early summer months-is not separated from the period of collapse from August 1st; but it will Illustrate how the.war has reduced Britlsb Immigration to the lowest tinco 1S99-.- Year ending , 31st Total British .... 402,432 l."i0.542 .... 3S4,87S 142.G2: .... 144,789 43,27ti .... 48,537 8.(i64 . ... 7.5,574 S,3S2 Of the British immigrants in the last year, 1,895 declared their occupations as agricultural; of the .\mericans, 20,-S22. Of the other nationalities, the greatest immigrant class has bean Newfoundlanders (1,243) and Italians (758). To bring thdse figures down to date, to Illustrate the marked revival in American immigration, it can be added that during the first ten months of 1917, 33,134 United States immigrants entered western Canada-^n Immigrant being a person who states his intention �f living pen-inanently fn a country-^bringing With them $4,932.-190 Jn cash and n,4S8,S9S in effects. These totals are more than double those of the same period of 191G and nearly four tidies those ot the same period of 1915. An organized campaign of mendacity it must not be forgotten, was conducted by unseen interests In the United States, previous to tho entry of that country Into the Allied ranks with tho object ot preventing American migration into Canada. It took the form, generally, ot the dissemination ot "reports," chronicling the imposition of heavy wur,taxes, the oppression of neutrals not openly sympathetic witli^l the iPiIlifs. There Is a~ great amount ot credit due .to the two. hundred thousand sturdy Americans T�ho refused to accept such puerile -detraction, and hetween August, 1914, And April, 1917, crossed the' border to make their homes on belligerent soli. War eliminated the curiosity seekers and revealed tile really serious intent, thereby purifying immigration of much that was inimical to progress, but was difficult t^ ,ayold without recourse to absolute mandatory prohibition. With' the exception of 1915-19 (4^537 immigrants), immigration in 1918-17 was the "smallest sin tails up to May.l6. �* , " More thfen 1000 -ot the 10,000 members of the Brotherhood of- Railroad Trainmen have enlisted in the army or navy of Canada and the United States.
