( A!UMA3 LIKE CITIES.
The lure of the citr teems to be as
treat In Canada as In thla country.
The facts disclosed by our census are
duplicated with equal or greater em
phasis by theirs. We think, here In
the west, of Canada's increase of pop
ulation being almost wholly on the
land, but It is only in the far west
that the rural growth baa exceeded
that or-the rltl. or has kept within
speaking distance. Nova Scotia lost
2.273 inhabitants between 1901 and
Mil. but Halifax rnlud 7.000, Sydney
7,500 and Glace Day 0.B00. The in--reas
In the provinc e of Quebec was
2-1.799. but Montreal alone gained
11)8,467. Its suburbs about 25,000 and
the city of Ouebec 9.2M). Ontario's
increase was 236.835. but Toronto
gained 16g.2i00, Ottawa 26.412, Hamil
ton 23.215 and Fort William 12.865.
These four cities absorbed about 70
per cent of th Increass for the whole
province. In Manitoba, wher th. in. i
crease in the decade was 199,000 Win-J
nipeg took 83,000 or nearly half of It.
British Columbla'a gain was 284,109,
but In Vancouver, with its suburbs,
and Victoria, the capital tbe increase
was 107.000. This would go far to
show that the farmers of this country
really had little to fear from reciproci
ty. Canadian non-producers are in
creasing vastly faster In proportion
than are Its producers of foods. The
drift Is the sam. there as here. They .
are headed toward the same goal and
are going with the same speed. With
a less area of nroductlv end unrf ',
less variety of products, tbey may yet j
