I === I BRISK EMIGRATION. I 22,411 Increase this Year. j Not for many years past has emigration from the United Kingdom been so brisk. In the past month 20,179 British-born persons left these islands. The tide has set towards British possessions over-seas, and particularly towards Canada. 8927 persons sailed for Canada, as against 2261 in March, 1902, and only 3411 to South Africa, an increase of 337, while Australia proved less attractive, receiving only 656. The figures for the past quarter in com- parison with the same period of 1902 reveal the tendencies of this remarkable movement. Last year 15,198 British-born went to British posses- sions, 12,814 to the United States, and 1404 to other foreign countries. This year the result of the three months' emigration has been that 78,697 persons went abroad, as compared with 56,286 in the first three months of last year, an increase of 22;411. The figures for this year are: British born. Foreigners. British possessions 28,143 12,041 United States 13,986 22,171 Other foreign countries 1,403 953 Total of emigrants 43,532 35,165 In this calculation emigrants of doubtful naticn- ality have been classed as foreigners. This state- ment shows that though the Mother Country is losing many sons and daughters, the vast majority still remain citizens of the Empire. Of the 43,532 British emigrants 33,948 were English, 5398 Scotch, and 4186 Irish. Of those who went to distant parts of the King's Dominions 11,880 British-born sailed for Canada, as against 3459 last year, 11,616 for South Africa, and 25-13 for Australasia, compared with 3050 in the first quarter of 1902.
