It Is pointed out that the total area repurchased for the purpose of plans mentioned to June 30 last, was 619,-468 acres at a cost of $9,447,220, and that of this, excluding 52,024 acres, the holders of which had completed purchase, the area then held from the crown was 257,349 acres by 1700 Individuals. The only estates repurchased during the year was North Bundaleer, comprising 22,320 acres. This, was subdivided into 54 blocks and the whole area with the exception of. 1500 acres surrounding the homestead, which was withheld, was allotted. "Biefore the government acquired the estate for closer settlement," Btates the surveyor general, "the number of persons resident and employed on the whole area would not have exceeded 500, 'while from the information from the .proprietors when the estates were repurchased it was found that there were 346,000 sheep, 818 horses and 3120 cattle on the land, and very little cultivation was being carried on. "On June, 30 laiat, on the area still held from the crown (the holders of 52,024 acres had completed purchase of'this area would represent a population of at least 400 .persons, or about 7� families)' there was a population of 4900 persons including children, 121,012 sheep, 8259 horses and 8908 cattle, in addition to between 7000 and 30,000 pigs and nearly 36,000 poultry. . "During the year 63,492 acres yielded 660,691 bushels of wheat, 3929 acres harvested for barley, and oats gave a return of 69,697 buahels; 16,-174 acres out for hay returned 19,794 tons, and 1875 acres were cultivated for peas, potatoes', orchards and vineyards and for vegetable*., In addition 45,603 acres were fallowed for the coming season. The total value of the improvements effected by the tenants since allotment is about $1,-625,000." ... CAPITAL CONTROLLED BY Less Than Thirty Men Have Controlling Voice in Immense Wealth ^1 71-^ Uv**-U:S FOR WOMEN'S SUFFRAGE Signatures of some well-known men who believe In voces for women. Most of them are prominent Toronto business men. - . c Hon. H. R. Emmerson in his speech on the Bank Bill quoted an authority who said that Canada's economic structure was In control of "23 capitalist directors." Mr. Enraier-son's authority is Nathaniel S. Fine-berg. The latter compiled a list of companies whose capitalization (bond and stocks) reaches or exceeds $500,-000 (including a few insurance companies of smaller capitalization because of the magnitude of their investment.) He discovered that the directors 'who are common to the 121 Canadian corporations can be sifted down to 48, all residents of Canada, with the single exception of Lord Strathcona. Of the 121 corporations, eight are operating outside of Canada. The 48 directors are on the boards of at least three companies of the 121. The best of the 48 given is as follows: Senator Geo.'Cox, W. D. Matthews, F. Nicholls, R. Mackay, Sir H. M. Pellatt, Sir William Mackenzie, Sir William Van Home, E. B. Osier, Z. A. Lash, H. S. Holt, R. B. Angus,' C. R. Hosmer, R. Jaffray, B. S. ClOus-ton, Senator L. J. Forget Lord Strathcona, Sir G. A. Drunrmond, Sir H. M, Allan, W. R. Brock, James Ross, H. M. Molson, Sir Rodolphe Forget, John Hosken, D. B. Hanna, Dr... Morrice; S. H. Ewlng, E. B. Greenshields, D. Mac-keen, Sir Donald Mann, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, A. Kingman, James Cra-thern, W. H. Beattle, R. Meighen; C. M. Hays, R. Kilgour, W. Wainwright, H. A. Allan, EC Bickerdike, Ellas Rogers, William R. Smith, J. H. Plum-mer, Sir Edmund Walker, R. Archer, J. P. Black, R. Redford, J. M. Gibson, and H. J. Meredith. Nine Live in Toronto Since the above list was prepared several of tbe list have died. 'Mr. Fineberg found further that at the bottom of the whole economic structure of Canada are 23 capitalist directors'wio are members of 90 out of the total 121 corporations. In other words, these 23 men are the directors in practically all of Canada's economic life. Of the 23 men nine reside, in Toronto, 13 in Montreal, and one in England. The 23, three of whom are deceased since the preparation of the estimate, are as follows: Senator G. A. Cox, director hf 19 companies, financial, transportation, and industrial, with total capitalization ot 194 millions. W. D. Matthews, director of 17 companies, 'with capitalization of 410 millions. F. Nicholls, director of 14 companies, with capitalization of 237 millions. Senator R. MnoKay, director of 14 companies, with capitalization of 488 millions. Sir H. M. Pellatt, director of 13 companies, with capitalization of 101 millions. Sir Win. Mackenzie, director b� 13 companies, with capitalization of 215 millions. Sir Wm. Van Home, director of 12 companies, with capitalization of 481 millions. E. B. Osier, director of 11 companies, with total capitalization of 358 millions. Z. A. Lash, director of 11 companies, with capitalization of 183 millions. R. B. Angus, director of 10 companies, with total capitalization of 419 millions. , Sir. R.

Figures That Stagger  Mr. Fineberg thus computes that 23 men .'direct 90 out of ISl.-.-jr-rjora-tions, who control corporation capital to the amount of $1,500,000,000, and assets-to the amount of $2,250,000,000, equal to. 90. per cent, of the total capitalization and total assets of the 121, corporations examined. Mr. Emmerson did not put on 1-Ion-gard all of the estimate above, nor did he mention, the names of the 4S or the 23. The list, however, he had with Jiim is as noted. �' "These are'23 capitalist financiers," he said, "upon whom depend in a very largo measure the type and direction of Canadian natural property," T SI E C.

C, Feb. 5.-Great discrimination has been shown here by the C.P.R. in the re-employment of the strikers belonging to.the Can-> adian -Brotherhood oi Railroad Employees. � Some men ot four and even more years.'...service previous to the strike have been curtly refused, others taken back at a reduced monthly rate. The men who first went back have in several cases recoived increased rates in their old positions. Where reasons for not taking a man back are Riven they are worse than petty. For instance, bne;.man on being taken back 'Was/ told a- position would have been'.'found; for him a fortnight before,- but'he had passed,a very minor official, in the �street.' without recognition during the strike. At the time,the'rejjart of the the Conciliation board was ^presented to the Minister of.Ijabor it was stated in the press ''^hat. the finding would apply throughout;, the system." It is surely up to the minister, and"the Dominion government'to see to it that the findings of its board are acted up to by the company, as in the case of the G.T.P.
