Finnish immigrants arrive in the

po.se except timgemral wish to better

work on farms or in mines. Others
se ei employment simply n.s lahorerson
great construct on works, such as rad
road building.
The purpose of the immigration pro-1
met, which has sought a icld in Alaska
is to give Finnish immigrants an op- j
portnnity to ne«|oire farms or other i
property of i>.• Iv own more easily than
they could do *<\ 1 »\ hiring out as labor-,
ers for great corporations. Ttie chief
! iiiu'.istrics of Finland are agriculture

Finlander-. more similarity of employ
men' than any other part of tin* west
ern world, with resources tar greater
than at home.
| In tin- locality chosen for the Finnish
e finny is found a large expanse of rich
! land, practically unlimited -.alt, water
fisheries, excellent timber and immense
coal deposits. Tiie climate is milder
than that of Finland and experiments
on a small scale have demonstrated
| that all the hardy cereals anil veget
ables have a prolific growth. Along
Cook Inlet the Finnish immigrants
will find a far richer country than they
I leave.
TO ORGANIZE A. B. CAMP
I Local Members Hold Meeting and
Prepare to Get Together
Twelve members of the Arctic
iirot her hood, holding proxies for four
others, met Sunday afternoon and
made arrangements to organize a Sew
atid camp of the order. Four addition
a! members live in Seward or vicimtv,
so the local camp will start with a
I membership of twenty.
A committee was appointed to make
i the necessary arrangements with the
; grand council for a charter. I iii> will
have to he obtained from the office of
the grand reeorder, Godfrey ( healan-,
j ger of Skagwav. The committee is
i composed of H. H HiAreth, ( . 1. Gag*
g >; i and < 'ceil H. Clegg.
II. i\ Web rant is a deputy grand
chief and empowered to conduct the
| formalities of instituting a new camp,
so that this can be done whenever tiie
.charter is received without sending
i for an outside official. As soon as the
camp is on a working basis an effort
' will be made to add a large number of
new members and to take steps to
j equip a lodge room.
