Like every other Britisher on His first visit to Canada, Mr. Scheff is amazed at the extent of Canada, the j distances are amazing, the vast areas i of undeveloped lands, the richness of the soil, the great resources of mine, forest and waters. He sees the need for more people and is interesting himself in getting information that will appeal to the class of settlers best suited to this country. He remarked on the fact that no sour'faces are seen' in this country and every one seems on the spur track in the east of the city or on Fourth street, and it is al- together probable that the work will be undertaker! this fall.

There are thousands of farmers with cash in hand In England, says Mr. Hcheff, to whom the good land, -all ready for the plough, that can be se- cured on such- easy terms, who could easily induced to, come to Western Canada if. the facts 'concerning this country were placed before them. Mr. Scheff Is making an exhaustive of data and taking an excellent photos for special Canadian j to be issued by the various i papers which ii representing, I. audience was a very attentive one and went away carrying with them 'the strong statements ringing with truth which Mr. Oliver advanced as his reasons.for supporting the bill. With the Minister of the Interior on platform were W. A. Buchanan M. P., .Mayor Beck and S. J. Layton, "ice- president of the Taber Liberal Asso- tion, who acted in tbe capacity of chairman. The Taber band under the leadership of 'Bandmaster tbey was also present and enlivened the meet- ing with several well rendered selec- tions. Americans Become Loyal Canadians W. A. Buchanan was the first speak- er of the evening and addressed the audience by way of introducing to them Hon. Frank Oliver, the man who had done so .much in the Ottawa for Canada as a whole and for Western Canada in particular: Mr. Oliver, he said, had been elected to the Dominion parliament when there was no Taber and he had e'een the country grow and develop in a won- derful manner during his regime. The main purpose of the meeting was to explain, the reciprocity .and in this a Taber audience living in an essentially shotiM be keenly' Interested. Taber this year would have a crop bordering on the million and a half bushel'-mark- At the present rate of growth-.of .the country: it is safe to predict that. in five years they would be harvesting five times that amount yearly. The- question for them to consider is a market for this produce. Within, a few years United States will not be; growing enough wheat for their-.home, consumption. United States then, is the logical market for the Canadian farmer. The Canadian government proposes to give them access to that market with the duty removed. Some people argue, he said, that the U. should not be that market, but if so, why do the farmers of the States make such strenuous the passing of the reciprocity bill? They oppose it because they do not want the competition of the Canadian farmer. The matter had been placed befpre Sir Wilfrid Laurier by the largest deputation of Western farm- ers that had ever waited on the gov- ernment, and the government as; a result had taken the matter up when the opportunity presented -itself, and the reciprocity measure was the out- come, and it was promulgated for the ed with such a large audience on thfc occasion, of his first visit to the grow- ing town or city of Taber. He stated benefit of the farmer throughout he was tftking advantase of the ada. Mr. Buchanan went on to show i adjournment of the House to lay be- how it would be advantageous to both j fore some of the Western electors his the east and the-west. He spoke of j reasons for supporting the reciprocity the annexation talk, which he consid- ered absurd. Closer trade relations with the States'may bring "a lot of Americans to Canada but so far as anyone knowg they have always been among the best, and loyal of our citi- zens in the past and always would be no matter how lonjrthey kept coming. Hon. Oliver In rising to speak Mr. Oliver ex- pressed his pleasure at being confront measure, and to explain to them the view of the government on the question. Their local member in, the Dominion Mr. Magrath, did not seem to be able to see eye to eye with the government on this import- ant matter and for this reason he felt it incumbent oa him to take the consideration of the question up with 'them. In his address, which was a remark- ably clear and concise statement of the facts, Mr. Oliver considered the measure in three lights, first as a matter of principle, second as a pure- i ly -commercial question affecting the 'mass of the people of panada, and last, .as a continuance of the policy of the government laid down when they came into power in 1896, showing that they the- people mm MUST BE1EPT CLEAN License Department Will Cut off Licenses of.Un-, r sanitieucy Hotels (Special tq the Herald) Edmonton, June in this city not conducted upon the strictest i the tariff, wall between Canada and sanitary lines wifl be compelled to-.j the United States, has' behinl it cer lose their licen-j tain principles which must'be consid- ses.: One hotel Iras already had its j ered. inherentcharacteristic license suspended on this account, the of ?the huinaii .race to buy cheap and on Kinistmb Ave. I sell dear.

ARRIVES W SPANPPORT -Vigo, Spain, June Por- tifro Diaz, former president of Mexico arrived in the harbor today on the steamer Ypirango on which he sailed trom Vera Cruz on May 31. The steamer anchored in the bay a't 6.30 this morning. According'1 to, such of his plans as were made public prior to his departure from Mexico, Gener- al Diaz will continue to Havre, France, later returning to Spain for an indefinite stay. The Mexican min- ister to Portugal Is at Vigo to receive former chief. people to state of af-: fairs so that the citizens may-be able doing- to do this. Look at the matter of.re- ciprocity in this light from tbe stand-; point of both the consumer and the producer.'nWe are all.consumerg and, it is therefore the duty of the govern- ment to so arrange when possible that we may be able to buy as cheaply as possible.- ;0n the other hand it Is also the ;duty of the government to give to the producer the best markets obtainable in order, that he may be able to sell dear. To provide these markets for the Canadian producer the government must seek out new markets for Canadian produce and thus get the advantages of higher prices on account of the competition, afforded. Why then do we reciprocity? If the TJ. bud copying that Canada wanted nor Canada had nothing the U. S. wanted there would be no need, of- considering the ques- tion; But as" a: matter; of fact the trade between Canada'and the IX S. yearly amounts' to J25p.000.000.

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS FOR SHELDON Severe Sentence Passed Upon Montreal.Bucket Shop Broker Montreal, June waa the verdict rendered today in the case of C. D. Sheldon, charged with appropriating to his own use .funds given him by various clients for "in- vestment. A sentence of twenty-five years in the penitentiary was given immediately. The judgment was rendered by Judge Langelier who had sat as trial judge in this case in the court of special sessions. Theft was the par- ticular charge on which judgment was 1 rendered. Chas. D. Sheldon 'first ap-'j peared in Montreal in the fall of 1908 and immediately began- advertising! in a small way in certain daily and weekly papers. The game In "which he posed as an exponent was what Is familiarly known In the world ef fi- nance as a "blind pool." He claimed to be on the inside of tbe stock mar- ket, that he could manipulate stocks and securities in such a way tically to to thirty per month on his clients' investments. His departure on Oct. llth created consternation among his depositors, the large part of whom were widows and people, in straighten- ed circumstances and could ill afford to lose the money. On March 27th. he was apprehended in Pittsburg by O. R. Hatfield of the Pinkerton De-i tective Agency, and Wm. Aller of-the Pittsburg. city detective force.

We are very desirous of securing the names of every resident of the city so that the population may be enumerated completely. Tin's is important and -I would therefore ask any resident who has been missed by tbe enumerators to inform this office of the fact and the matter will be attended to without dela.y. It is wholly.unnecessary for the person who has-been missed by the .c enumerator to send in the information himself: tbe enumerators will be glad to call and get the information, required.
