The spring-tide of emigration to Canada from the United States West promises a big record this year. Since 1900 300,000 Americans have moved across the border, chiefly to the Canadian NorthWest. These emigrants generally have capital, they are vigorous, resourceful, law-abiding, and • make- good Canadian citizens. They do not migrate because they are not doing well in America, but because they hope to do still better in Canada. America feels their loss keenly, because they belong to the sturdy pioneer class, who cannot be replaced by the poor, underfed emigrants lately arriving in America from Southern Europe, and they do- 'not return to the American side. Many of them are of the class which made the great American West. They or their fathers obtained lands in the West, either by homesteading or by purchase for a small sum. Thev can now sell their holdings for many times the original cost, and tako their money and their experience to a more productive region.
