SIFTON'S SPEECH IN LONDON AT CANADA CLUB LUNCHEON The Canada Gazette published in Ixindon, England, gave the lollowhig report' ot Hon. A. L. S if ton's speech before ihe Canada Olub luncheon: Tho Hon. A. Siftoii, who ulso re- sponded, said; "Upon an occasion of this kind 1 would like, as tbe represent itive in a humble 'way of the newer portions of the Dominion, to accent- uate ihe remarks made in reference to our present Governor-General, tho Duke of Connatight, who has made an extensive tour throughout the Domin- ion this year, being received every- where with an enthusiasm which would have convinced the mcst doubt- ing Thomas that, any feeling there might be in regard to the American- ization of the western portion of Can- ada was one which, wherever it was, did not exist in Western Canada. Canadians are confident that their destiny is not to bo an in- dependent naiion separate from the British Empire, but to so on building up with, your an Empire of which we shall be proud. (Loud1 Cheers.) The Dominion of Canada is a very extensive field for emigration, where we desire people who can by twenty-five years building up thi spared from Great Britain.

Hon. Duncan Mar- shall, provincial Minister of Agricul- ture, said on ret urn ins to Edmonton, from a trip through the Middle West- ern States and Eastern Canada, "wc have in this province the best herd of dairy shorthorns on the con- tinent of America." Mr. Marshall bought in head of cat- tle, in addition to the herd purchas-- ed last summer, aJso a thousand pure- bred pullets for the Edmonton pbtil- :ry farm, where a 2.400 incubator will be installed at once to supply chicks farmers and poultry growers at I9t "We made one particularly good purchase this Mr. Marshall said, "in buying twenty head from lames Bro'wn ,of Norval, who is the most successful breeder of ''dairy shorthorns In Ontario, and has been profitable cows that the farmer able, If they had other opportunities, rt of gtouffvlile. located this t of doing better than they are doing, in the hands of Mr. McAvoy of now, nnd It" is that extensive class of j ciaremont, and we bought it.

(Cheers) Aside from that there is a great field Cor the profitable investment the surplus wealth which people don't know what to do with in this country. By Investing their sur- plus wealth in the Dominion of Can- ada they would not only be getting profitable investments, but they would be assisting to build up a portion o( the Empire that will be of actual prac- tical assistance to the people of this country. Naturalization and Provincial Credit .'There are one or two things which it. is necessary to do here in the in- terests of the Empire. When a man becomes a subject of (he Dominion of Canada, the same act 'Should make him a-subject, of ihe British Empire. (Hear, hear.) ft may he news to a great many that the various provinces of the Dominion 'would have a better credit in the city 'of London today if Jiey. had never united than they have aow. IJrKlsh Columbia was one of the poorest provinces in the Britisli Em- lire, but is now practically'the richest n the Dominion of Canada. Ye't it has lot the same credit in the city of Lon- don today as it would have had if it had remained separate. Ontario has not- the same credit as Ceylon. "These" hings arc amusing anomalies, mid at he same time sentimental grievances, ikely to grow greater as time goes on. like Ontario, with of people, do not like to he put on a ower basis of credit than Sierra Leone Dr-British Guiaim. These are matters vhieh no doubt be rectified. It is tot a (juestion.of political feeling. All overnmeut-s when in ofiice are con- ervative. (Laughter.) have oubt that proper influence will rought to bear, and at no distant ate these matters will be cleared up, jcause it is in Uie interests of the ahorthorn bull in Ontario, but has proved to be the best stock getter. We are bring- ing this bull, to Alberta, he will be placed on the Claresholm farm, with fourteen first-class cows pur- chased in Ontario., "Another purchase includes seven yearling bulls from Mr. Brown's farm. They are out of the best producing In Ontario. We also have a yearling sired by old King Butterfly, and three good young dairy shorthorn bulls. In the course of a few months we expect to oEfef i.bea-fi for sale to our farmers who.are striving to build shorthorn herd of good milkers. .Most, of this stock was purchased In the'counties of Middlesex arid Peel, and in the southern part of Ontario. purchased ilk two cows that te' Guelph dairy Ohio. This animal was first in the shorthorn dairy test at the Intorna- tional Fat Stock Exhibition in Chi- cago." Mr. Marshall said he found a lively iterest at Chicago and in various parts of Ontario, In the milking strains of shorthorns, At the annual meet- ing of the American Shorthorn asso- ciation, Chicago, during the Interna- tional Fat Stock Exhibition, a' breed- er of dairy shorthorns was elected a member of the board of, directors for the first time. Tho Department of Agriculture, he added, had brought into Alberta in 1U12 seventy head of registered short- horns, nil of a good milking strain, which, for the purpose of general mix- ed farming on the average farm in tne province, would probably prove the most could keep. The intemational Fat Stock Show at .Marshal! said, 'was perhaps the best of its kind ever held _.i the continent, and some went so far as to say it was the best all-round live stock show ever held in the world. There were the finest speci- mens of every breed of horses, partic- ularly of Clydesdales and Percberons, ever gathered together at one exhi- bition. "J. D. McGregor, of Brandon and Medicine the Minister continu- ed, "created widespread interest in the prairie provinces as a stock-raising country by capturing the sweepstakes for his steer. Mr. McGregor not only fed, this steer, an achieve- ment that agriculture in Western Ca- nada has good reason to be proud of. "Simon Downie, of Carstairs, Alta., won first place for carload lots in the keenest kind of competition at the Market show in Toronto. This is significant, considering that the cattle were fed in the open and shown against stock that had been carefully hand-fed in preparation for the show. 'Among other the Minister said, at the close of the interview, "Al- berta scored four victories in agri- culture 'in 1912. Henry Holmes, of Magrath, won the sweepstakes ag- .tinst the world tor the best -bushel of wheat at the international Dry-Farm- ing Congress, LcuVuridge, Mr. Downie raised and fed a carload of steers that took first place in the old beef- raising province of Ontario.

(Cheers.) .Naturalization Laws The Canadian Xows published the following: Th'e Hon. A. L. Siftoii In his speech at the luncheon given, by the Roya Colonial Institute in his honor fast Thursday, drew attention to a subject of imperial interest and importance when 'lie spoke of the need for an al- teration of the naturalization laws of the British government. At the pres- ent moment a German, an American, ir a Hungarian taking out naturaliza- tion papers in Canada became a citizen of Canada, but not of the Empire; he- still remained an alien in every other part, of the timpire. He urged thJs very strongly in view of the probable fact that within thirty years llierc would he a population of thirty mill- ions between Fort William and Van- feeling a couver, The British government hnd promised to do this some time ago, but bad not, as yet, redeemed that promise. During the course of his speech he painted a wonderful picture, not only of the progress that Canada had made during; the Inst thirty-five years, but also of the brilliant future that await- ed her. During bis own time, he as- sured his henrprs, had been invested in railway building be- iv.'cc'i Lake Superior and the Pacific, besides another by tho i-i-iiiifc, no i ue.ilUUB itUlM I-IJ LHU ell as in theory.

It is stated that John Hays Hammond, .the millionaire mining engineer ay be appointed United States Ambassador to ttie Court of St. James tri- e-cession to the late Whitelaw Reid. say n natural gas. All this leads me to the opinion that for young men there is no country in the world which holds out such bril- liant prospects as Canada, and espec- ially the western part of the great Dominion. There is a growing feeling in this country that there is too much putting of tbe. bright side of Canadian life be- fore would-be emigrants hero in Great Britain. T cannot agree with them, because I feel it IB absolutely impos- sible to do justice to the wonderful resources of that great country. What would emphasize is this: it is no good either men or women going there who are unable or unwilling to work hard; but to strong, able, hard- working steady and vHh a keen aptitude for business and faculty for seizing opportunity the moment it presents of- fers not only a sufficiency but great wealth. A level-headed, hard-working good health and good char- acter, cannot possibly fail.
