Entrants on Abandoned Homesteads Must Pay Debt for Seed Grain Saskatoon Exhibition July 31-Aug. 4, 1917 SINGLE FARE FOR THE ROUND TRIP Going Dates, July 28 to Aug. 3. Return Limit, Aug. 7, 1917 For full particular apply to local agent, R. DAWSON, District Passenger Agent, CALGARY Ottawa, Ont., July 20.-When the houBO met this afternoon Sir Thomas White Introduced the bill bused upon the resolution urioptod yesterday providing for an incomo tax. Tho bill was given a first reading and now stands for second reading. When the house was moved into committee to consider Hon. W. J. Roche's bill to amend the Dominion Lands Act, Hon. Frank Oliver said that as tho bill had just been distributed, Its consideration should bo d of erred until tho member* had time to consldor it. Sir Hobort Borden said that the bill was largely of a technical charactor. Ho suggested that certain clauses could bo deferred. This was agreed to and consideration of the bill was proceeded with. Dr. Koche explained that tho bill provided that any person who secures an abandoned homestoad may bo required to pay amounts duo for principal and interest charged against bush land for sued sraln or othor ro-liof advanced by tho government to any previous ontrant. Mr. Oliver doubted If It would ho .wise to ask tho new homesteader to | assume responsibility for more than the improvement's made. Hon. Dr. Roche said that the value of the land In the more thickly settled parts would make It worth while for the now entrant to assume all the Indebtedness against the land. Mr: Oliver said that most of the land would he In loss thickly settled districts, where the land was valuable It would not bo abandoned. He thought tho now policy would bo a deterrent to rcoceiipation -and to preemption. He stated his objection DECLINEO $7,500 SALARY TO SERVE PUBLIC FREE Autos Painted Painting: Decorating Paperhanging Morgan 964 11th Street S. & Whittaker 612 7th Street S. Phone 1820 Dr. Roche thought tho proposal to have the now entrant pay was better than to put tho land up at auction with tho indebtedness against it tho upset price. Protection For Women. Tho bill clothes the minister with power to order that moneys collected for tho government by a former entrant may bo paid to his wife. It will provide protection for women in the case of desertion by her husband. Another provision for the protection for women Ib that w:\jn tho entry of an ontrant Is cancelled his wife may secure the patent aftor completing tho homestoad duties performed by him. ThO 1)111 also extends to homesteaders tho right to count residence from dato of entry and from date of com-mnncomont of residence either before or aftor date of entry. These provisions were in tho act previous to 1908. Mr. Oliver doubted tho wisdom of this clutiso because it would Introduce an element of doubt In the administration of the act. This was a matter, ho said, that could be controlled by regulation. Dr. Roche said tho only object was to glvo the department a little more rusticity. Dr. Schacffner and Mr. Turriff thought the amendment was a good one and should be adopted. Mr. Oliver maintained that it puts too much power in tho hands of officials who are political partisans. Often, while not accusing tho minister of sinister intontions, he was afraid the results would be sinister. Colonel Currio objected to men being allowed to take up land just tor tho purpose of making money. He thought that returned soldiers should however, ho would not further oppose bo allowed to got patents as long as tho adoption of the clause. they live in the vicinity of the land.
