In other words, we wish to see the Soldier. Settlement Act ot 3 917 put Into working order, and Its raisoh d'etre accomplished as set out iu the ])reamble, which states it to be "An Act to assist returned soldiers settling upon the land, and to increase agricultural production." .. It la inconceivable that fui'Uier exemption should be aiforded to the owners of Immense tracts of unused lands, until such ti^ne as the labor and energy of surrounding settlers has* "Increased Its value. If the Government's dlctnnij that "food will win the war," was rbally believed by its sponsors. It is a-peculiar fact that.. the TOQulred amendments to the Soldier Settlement Act could not be made by order-ln-council. Many wider enactments have been perpetrated under this form of government, a number of which .struek at the very root of hum-.an liberty and privilege. Personal liberty-that hitherto most sacred and Inviolable human right-has not been exempt in Oie process of welding the power and resources of the nation into; tlfe set "purpose of victory. But while a policy of "work or fight" has been adopted for the manhood ot Canada, anyone hundred thousand men have been arafted into the army as.a con-seQuence of national necessity, iib cbr-rpsponding policy has been devised to deal with Canada's secondary great asset-T-the land.. , � hEtii settlomeiil- cannot be brought about by any haphazard acheme of .^t'ovMlng merely laud and a loan, ioUkrir are the. throe middle-west prorjiideii '.the only territory upon ^Woh'eettlement is roqulrod and do-ilrable, evenUhough there be over thirty mllHoh idle ;aoroB thercifi, ac-cessUile to railway transpo'rtatioa. ^uch careful' thought miist be given to tlie details which are essential to this great problcny The pariiculiir need ot each province desiroHs of retaining its own veterans; the topographical-conditions which require varyl^jg treatment;the funAmental need of agi-lcultural instructlo^l; the provision oflauch features Majestic Theatre for two days beginning on Friday nexl.
