INFLUX OF AMERICANS AND CANADIANS. (Per Press Association.) WELLINGTON, February 19. A fact which is attracting some notice at present is the number of Canadians and Americans who have recently arrived in the Dominion. Many are engaged> in harvesting and other farming operations in the country, and from inquiries made, by _a reporter, it appears that more are likely to follow 1 from the . States; iOne farmer said they were out to spy out the land, and they would settle here if'they found conditions satisfactory. In America it was becoming increasingly difficult to secure suitable farms at a reasonable figure, and the rigour of the winter in the Middle and' Eastern States made life hard. Mr David McKenzie, the New York 'millionaire motorist, who is touring"the world by car, and recently went through the North Island,^expressed the opinion that if only New Zealand's advantages as a farming .''country- were properly advertised in America, there would undoubtedly be a large influx of settlers to the Dominion from the northern continent. The opening of the Panama Canal for traffic would help to facilitate the movement from the Eastern and Central States.
