S|*wrs, whom* report ha�l been (|ii(itcd tiy Mr. Jlonk*n, had not, he |h>il�te;l out, iihwk' any close or practical examination which would enable him to pi*o* nouncc an uuthuiitatixo opinion regaivMig Uve value oi the IimmI. With ivgnrd to 'the aeticle l>y Mr. W. 'IIkmiiroii, who had seen tit to gel alter the departineirt of the interiot in the Aiik-rican papers, that gv*ntk*man, Mr. Siftixi rs'tmtrketl, wus o( goiKl literary anility. t>ut he did not know any one had ever bccumhI hiltlt of Ije-ing a j"*ttk*d country, so much bo that lor ten years trains ran through the whole sixty miles wi'hout  mat ion or stoppittg place to accommodate local trof-lic. Mr Sitton justified the contract with tho Saskatchewan \ alley I^oikI Co , rompiised of four Americans and two Canadians, who were ivquttxd to plaiv in each lowu*4iip twenty wttlers on fixv liuiiM-ntea-oti other sections lief ore fr�'.v w's from the Kovciiiment, the  ompany also purchased -I.IO.OOO aeri*s from tin- railway company, which wa*t iIk* laiKl company in lti nixing up an excursion of >>00 proiiiiiM*nt linkers, capitalists, newspaper imii und others who wetit o\er the latHl. This he re-Kankd as the >'sent out. As indicative of tlx-- situation at that time, Mr Siftou tpioud a Winni|K*g p'i|xr, airtagoniiftic to the gov-�rninent, whieli tkn-larod that the departiihiit nml buncoed these Ami-ricans into taking I a ml which was no good. Another incident which demonstrated the opinion tiliey IwVd of thu valtte of the land in question was the fact that when the. I .and Co. asked tiie llnilway Co. to o|�cn a station in tbat district, they weiv� met wfUi a refusal unless they aicreed to pay the salary of a station agent. Moreover, they had to build hotel*, and livery stables and ap-lMiint Und guides 'to tdiow settlers the land and at one time had H.oof) 8Wh-ag�-nts throughout tin.* Cnited States drumming up M-t tiers and sellinj* tlw lawls l^ie farts were that farnters from Ontario would not go on this land an I it was only when the company tirou^il {k-upw* ulio had experience in #\ they could gut them to locate Tliis did not re flert upi�i t1�� interior tk'part-iitent, t*'Ouuse the officials could not advise people to k on this laud. llVNlewl of a reflection upon the department, the success of this company was part of the success of the immigration policy of the departonenl. He verting io tilKi excursion to the district at w-hiili t'ho Opposition laughed. Mr Sifton said that among those who came up on it in 1002 wetv men who now owned the David-bon farm, which last year had a crop ' of 120,000 'liiitthels; the Wolisford farm, which last year had a crop of 40,000 bushel a; thu d'tiiwly larm, 20,000 tmshels the W'addell fnnn, 40,000 bushels. He had liiinwlf travelUd through 'this district. Ho foutxl that where in 1902 there was a wilderness last ' year thore wore cities ami towns as prosperous as any in the iKniiinioii. Mr. Poster had lamented tlto lot of tlie unfortunate uMtlers upon whom Uie lootl conipatty pilod up elwrges for IimucI.
