GOLDEN YUKON AND THE UNITED STATES. TWO PICTURES AND A WARNING. The frozen Klondyke has magnetic attrac- tions to induce the rushing emigrant from home and friends, and we are told that the influx into Yukon territory for the winter's opera- tions still continues. The output for this season cannot be properly judged, as at least 150 per cent. of the returns are never declared. Raiiway construction on the Yukon and White Pass Railroad Company's line is being pushed on night and day towards the White Horse Rapids, both on account of the company's faith as to the future of the Yukon territory as a permanent gold producer and on account of the discovery of the extraordinary gold and copper reefa near the Rapids, assays having given 47 per cent. copper, and the lodes being hundreds of feet in width. There has been no sickness at Dawson this summer. The hospitals are all nearly empty, and one of them has had to close. Sanitary conditions are far better, and better living is now a possibility. On the other hand, we notice that emigration to the United States on the part of working men is greatly discouraged by the New York correspondent of the "Scotsman," who believes that there is a mistaken impression abroad in Great Britain that the improvement in Ameri- ca trade has made employment good. This is not the case (he shows) in any such degree as trade statistics may seem to indicate. The States are a scene of a revolution in industrial methods which not only subjects personal in- dependence and initiative to the great trusts, but makes larger use of machinery than any country of Europe, and no account at all of obligations towards workers. The American Federation of Labour has just ascertained that there are more than a million wage-earners, both labourers and craftsmen, who cannot find (employment. The correspondent also points out that the tide of emigration from the United Kingdom has steadily ebbed, while from other countries of Europe it has not abated in the same proportion.
