Later en these men will be given the op- portunity of taking over some of the farms and the company will stand by them financially until they are on their feet.

One thousand copies will be given the Do- minion government for distribution. The members of the commission were delighted with their trip and were impressed very favora !y indeed with Canada. The report, Mr.' Hodge says, is very favorable to this country as a place for Scottish emi- gration. Accompanying Mr. Hodge are John Smith, of Virden, Man., who was formerly manager of Mr. Hodge's es- tates in Scotland but who has been farming at Virden for two and half years, and C.W.

Mr. Speers is go- ing with them to give them the bene- fit of his many years of farming in Western Canada. The party is mak- ing a thorough investigation of the country before Mr. Hodge makes his selection. This morning the party, with Immigration E. Hum-: phries, drove out to the Experiment- al Farm.
