SEX IN IMMIGRATION,
More Ilea Than Women Come to
Same liereetlsr Facta all Flsarca
A baa I la Arrival froa Dlf
fereat Laada Tk Tide
From 1319, the year of the passage
by congress of the law for the registra
tion of iuimitp-anta arriving in the
United States, until the present time,
there have been 1S,5'JO,OUO immigrants
registered in the various porta of the
country, and of these, taking the aver
age through the whole course of years,
60 per cent, were men and 40 per cent,
women, a disparity representing a total
difference of nearly 3,7i)0,000.
It has been frequently pointed out
as a matter of interest and importance
that the proportion of male immigrants
is higher where such immigration is
least desirable, particularly in the
case of Chinese and Sicilians, while it
is lowest among the Germans and Irish.
The reasons assigned for this disparity
have been many. Among them have
been the perils and inconveniences of
a residence on the frontier before the
complete settlement of the country, emi
gration from continental countries to
escape conscription in European, arm
ies, the clanger and discomforts of ocean
travel before the establishment of fast
and commodious steamers, and the nat
ural reluctance of women to seek homes
in new lands. It has popularly been
supposed, however, that as these reasons
for the excess of male immigration
either disappeared or were diminished,
the totals of the two sexes would be
more nearly even, s conclusion which
the tables just published by the immi
gration bureau in Washington for the
year ending March 1, 1699, completely
During the year the actual number of
immigrants coming into the United
States was 310,000, an increase of SO.OOO
compared with a year ago. According
to the ordinary division between male
and female immigrants there should
have been 186,000 of the former and 124,
000 of the latter. Instead of this there
were 193,277 male immigrants, or more
than CO per cent., and 117,438 female im
migrants, less than 40 per cent. From
England there were 0,700 male and 4,000
female immigrants, about the average
ratio; from Germany, 14,700 male nr.d
11,800 female immigrants, less than the
average number; from Scandinavia
there were 12,747 male and 10,502 female
immigrants, and from Finland, a coun
try from which there hag been recently
extensive emigration to the United
States in consequence of the seriouscon-
rlict between the Russian government
and the Finns, 3,000 male and 2,100 fe
male immigrants' came. From two
countries female immigration to the
United States preponderates, Ireland
arid Bohemia. There were Inst year 13,
700 male nnd 1S,000 female immigrants
from Ireland, nnd from Bohemia the
number of male nnd femule immigrants
was ulmost identical, 1,202 of the for
mer and 1,204 of the latter.
The long-disputed question among
immigrant olhcials us to the designa
tion to be given to Polish Hebrew iniml
grants, whether they should be de
scribed as Polish or under the head of
German, Russian or Austrian immi
grants, ns the case might be, has been
settled by the adoption of a generic
term for all such immigrants, the word
Hebrew. There were 21,000 male nnd
10,000 female Hebrew immigrants last
year, from Russian Poland there were
in addition 18,000 male and 10,000 fe
male immigrants, while from Italy,
now the chief contributing country to
the flow of immigration into the United
States, there were 52,000 male and 23,
000 female immigrants. Italian immi
gration is very largely responsible for
the disparity of the sexes in tbe matter
of immigration. Twice as many male
Syrians as female Syrians came over
Inst year nnd five times ns many male
Slavonians. There were 2,200 mnle
Greeks and only 132 female, but the rec
ord of all other countries is distanced
by China, 1,027 male immigrants and 11
female immigrants only.
Cuban immigration to the United
States last year was 1,400, including 1,100
mnle and 300 female immigrants. From
Hawaii there were more women than
male immigrants, though the number
of either was not large, and from Japan
there came 3,175 male immigrants and
275 female. N. Y. Sun.

A suspicious-looking individual en-
itered a barber's shon in Mn nohpsfpr
and while being shaved casually re
marked: "I suppose a good many of

"Xo, sir," the barber replied; "there
was a time when I used to give credit,
but I never do now. In fact, nobody
asks for it any more."
"Well, you see," said the barber, try
ing the edge of his razor on his thumb
nail, "whenever I shaved a gentleman
who asked me to mark it up, I put a
little nick in his nose with my razor,
and kept tally that way. They very
