In a matter of such magnitude involving expenditures that will run Into immense sums It may be assumed that it is the government which will have to'accept the responsibility of determining the scheme; the ifunc- acres, ed and m^W^y^k^^^^ ^ over 1 tions of the land settlement board iand tfleld notes it becomes at once must be of necessity, advisory and executive. Meanwhile a lot of business ror the new board is developing under the legislation of last session providing for -a loan of $2,500 at five per cent, to returned . soldiers who go on the land. The provision is fairly elastic. Under it, returned soldiers who have bought land, who are working land which they held before the war, or who have home-steaded, have a right to this loan, subject to the regulations of the board as to the manner in which it Is to be expended; and the applications for these advances have been piling up until they now number about 1,500. These applications are from every province in Canada. The returned soldier going back to his farm iu Ontario is as alive to the advantage of securing this assistance from the government as Is the western soldier who has picked ou,t his homestead and is preparing to settle down as a producer. The complete . regulations governing tne allotlng of this money have not been worked out yet, and the machine Tor applying the act has yet to be constructed; but as the applications before the land settlement board are by parties who are either on the land, or are preparing to go on it, In readiness for this year's campaign for greater agricultural production, "speeding up" Is necessary in order that the assistance may be given in time. ^Temporary arrangeemnts for 'dealing wifh these cases are therefore bemg made. Iri the westr the11"Dominion land agents and homestead inspectors will be impressed into the ^b'nii^o^ half- dectibh farms.',;' . These figures appear to 'suggest an almost inexhaustible reservoir of public-owned lands from which homesteads 'can be- drawn at will, for returned . soldiers; but when 1 tho situation t is subjected to intensive study in the light of maps, railways aparent that this is a sheer illusion. The map shows a certain amount of homestead land in Alberta proximity to railways; but this can be dismissed at once from4he calculation: if the land was* any good^would not be vacant. It may be laid down, as an incontrovertible proposition that in the older settled portions of the western provinces there, is no remaining homestead lands within reach of railways which Is worth owning. * There are a considerable number of goojfl homesteads - perhaps two*-thousand -available along the McArthurr railway into the Peace River; but thesis are rapidly. going. There is a considerable Influx of soldiers into that district. No doubt considerable areas of homestead land could be made acceptable by building'fairways. A study of the interesting: and valuable settlement maps published from time to time by the interior department shows very clearly the Intimate relation there is between railroad building and settlement. Thus the extension of the C. N. R. Oak Point branch to Gypsum-vine, and of, its Inwood branch to the neighborhood Qf:Fish'er River was followed by ^the alihost immediate, taking up of every available homesteaj} in these districts. Large extension?
