The Proportion of Women Among
the New Arrivals.
Some Strange Facts Brought Oat by
Official Statistics Countries In Which
There Are More Women
Than Hen.
The publication of articles on the
subject of European immigration into
the republic of Venezuela ha called
attention again to one of the curiosi
tiesof emigration which has never been
clearly explained and remains there
fore something of an enigma. It is
well known that the foreign imn.gra
tion into this country from the north
ern nations of Europe Great, Britain,
Germany, Russia and Scandinavia
have, like the early colonists from the
same countries, been pretty evenly di
vided between the two sexes. 'I he
emigration from the southern coun
tries of Europe, on the contrary, bpain,
Italy, Cireece and Portugal, has lieen
chieflr male, and to this fact, perhaps,
more'than to eny other, is due the in-
termarringe of emigrants and natives
1. Bth nnH f-,ntrnl Amerien. and the !
general absence of such marriages in I
Xorth America, particularly in the
United States and Canada. I he emi
gration from Ireland, for instance, for
many yean', has been more largely
made up of female than of male emi
grants, while from Italy, on the other
hand, the proportion for a period of
more than "JO years is, male, 75; female.
23. !
The total number of cmiprnntstothe
United States from 5845, the first year
of large emigration, to 1S95, a period
covering half a century, wes in e.cess
of 10,000,000, and more than 40 percent,
was female, whereas the large Spanish
and Italian emigration to South Ameri
ca has been almost exclusively male.
As this matter is not one of enrly oc
currence, but continues at present
(the censua figures resuming their old
dimensions since the improvement of
the times), it might be supposed that
the number of women in those Euro
pean countries from which there is
and hes been practically no female
emigration, would be much larger tban
in those countries which have Buffered
a stead' diminution through the emi
gration of persons of both sexes. But
the contrary of this is shown by the
figures of the Almanach de Got ha. In
Italy, from which there is very little
female emigration, the number of fe
male inhabitants is actually less than
the male inhabitants- in the ratio of
'JO to 100. In Koumania it is 03 to 100.
On the other band, in Great Britain,
from which the emigration of women
has been continuous, they outnumber
the men in the proportion of 104 to 100.
In all the other countries of Europe
from which there is and has been a
large female emigration a majority cf
the inhabitants are women. In Rus
sia the proportion is 102 women to 100
men, in Germany 104 women to 100
men, in Sweden 106 women to 100 men ;
in Switzerland 104 women to 100 men,
and in Denmark and Austria 103 wom
en to 100 men. In France and Belgium
the equality of proportion between the
sexes is evenly preserved. Thus, in
France there are 1,004 women to 1,000
men, and in Belgium the difference is
smaller, there being 1,001 women to
1.000 men.
A still more peculiar manifestation
of the same paradox, if it may be so
considered, is found in the official re
ports recently published in England
of the emigration from that country
during the last quarter of a century.
In I860 48'. per cent, of the population !
of Great Britain was male and 51 Va per
cent, was female. Between 1860
1 870 the female emigration was the larg
er, yet by the census of 1871 the female
population increased the more rapirjly.
From 1870 to 1880 the male emigration
was the larger, but the female popu
lation increased the more rapidly. X.

If only the edible portions of slaugh

would be a luxury ftod at a high figure.
incc only about one-thtrd of the
weight of the animal consists of predi

if the waste products of larpe ncat-
toirs as in Chicago, where no fewer
and 6,000 Hhecp have been received ii;
t. single day, becomes a matter of con
siderable importance. The market
aluc of the by-products represents an
enormous sum, and the concentration
of small products that a butcher would
allow to go to waste. In the process
of slaughtering the ox is killed by the

Latest U. S. Goirt Report
The Demand In America Far Ex
ceed the Supply.
Soma Interesting Facta About the Trade' .
from BeUaMs Source The State
of Affairs In Belgian ..:..
Foreign window glass has been'af--moist
completely shut out of the United
States. The latest reports show' a
rapid falling off in imported glass, and
during the last few months imports
have been lower than ever before in.,the
history of the trade. All the glass
needed in this country will be manufao"
tured at home, as prices and wages
across the water are at the lowest notch,
while the workers are considering the
advisability of demaiiling an jidvance
in w ages. Editor Frank M. Gessner, of
the National Glass Budget, who is well
posted on tho condition of the glass
trade says:
"The Belgian manufacturers seem to
have about given up the idea that the
United States is a dependency of that
little kingdom so far as window glass
is concerned. Our markets do not even
afford good fighting ground for them,
under present conditions. Wages'
abroad are about as low as they can be
reduced, for even now such organiza
tion as exists in Belgium is preparing to
demand higher wages at the first favor--able
opportunity. ' Owing to the large
curtailment resulting from the strike
last April and May there has been sufli--ciemt
trans-Atlantic demand to fairly
absorb the product until within a very
reasonable period.
"A very slight increase in exports to
the United States is noted during Sep--tember,
when there was an uncertainty
about American factories starting up,.
nd importers placed increased orders'
in - the. belief that late resump
tion would seriously curtail avail
able stock. The very full re
sumption of American factories and
the organized condition of our manu
facturers, the wise and liberal policy
which has been adopted in their deal
ings with the distributing trade, the"
ready acceptance of changed conditions
by the jobbers and the promptness with
which they have placed their orders, to
gether with the firmness of manu
facturers and the satisfactory condi
tion of jobbers, has about convinced
Belgian manufacturers that they have
little profit to seek in this country in
the future. The 31 tank furnaces in op
eration in Belgium are turning out
more glass than can be marketed, new
that the American market absorbs so
little of their product, and for the first
time in the past quarter of a century
they are called upon to cope with the;
Xroblem of overproduction.
"At a recent meeting the matter'
was fully discussed, and it was decided",
to reduce production after January I,,
proportioned to the capacity of firms:
operating. The matter of arranging de
tnils was left to a committee of five, and'
it is believed that production will be"
reduced fully one-third for severer
months in the new year. This is the
most convincing proof that American,
window-glass manufacturers have"
about fought their most formidable
foreign rivals to a standstill, and it ia
hoped they will make full use of their
opportunities, and not only amply sup
ply the entire demand, but take prompt
measures in their organized capacity
to bring the average quality up to the
high standard established and admira
bly maintained by the leading tank:
manufacturers of the country-
"Enough glass to satisfy the demand,
and of uniform high quality, must be'
made the watchword of both the Pitts
burgh aad western manufacturers, and
unless prices are fooiiahly advanced-"to-
such a point as to again stimulate
imports we ought to be bJa. ia a few
years, to completely establish our".irP-
dustrial independence."
The demand for-window glass still
heeps- up and is in excess of the im
mediate supply. This is largely at
tributable to orders stimulated by dis
counts offered large buyers and mem
bers of the Jobbers'' association by the
organized" manufacturers, and on ac
count of building activity. The regular'
demand, however, is very large.
Advices from- BeliriW wore that an'
agreement had been reached among
manufacturers which will curtail pro

agreed to, close their factories trJL
