In a ntatter of such mag-nitudo involving expenditures that will run into immonae sums it may bo assumed that it is the government which will have to accept tho responsibility of detormining the scheino; tlie ifunc-tions ot the land settlement board must be ot necessity, advisory and ex-ecutive. Jleanwhilo a lot of business Tor tha now board is developing under tho legislation of last session providing tor a loan ot $2,500 at five per cent, to returned soldiers who go on the land. Thff provision is fairly elastic. Under it, returned soldiers who have bought land, who are working land which tlioy held before the war, or who have home-steaded, have a right to this loan, subject to tho regulations ot the board as to the manner in which it is to be expended; and the applications for these advances have boon piling up until they now number about 1,500. These applications aro from every province in Canada. The returned soldier goiiig back to his farm in Ontario is as alivo to the advantage of securing this assistance from the government as is tho western soldier who has picked out his homestead and is preparing to settle down as a producer. The complete regulations governing the alloting of this money have not been 'worked out yet, and tho machine Tor applying tho act has yet to bo 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 tor this year's cnm-p.iign tor greater agricuitural production, "speeding up" is necessary In order that the assistance iii'ay be given _ in time. -Temporary arrangoenints for ', dlcr on the l.'ind will have to bi dealing with these cases are therefore being made.

Wh^n ho left school-he became the proverbial printer's, devil In the dtfloe of the Observer of Harvey Bank, N.B. In 1892 he aettied^ln Boston, Mass., and for tour yoarsworked in tie office ot the Boston Herald. Failing eyesight compelled him -to relinquish.' Uie "stick" for fresh fields. , ' Mr. Brewster had vlaitsd British Columbia several times and in is!)6. he decided to make his home in this'pro-vince. He became associated with tho transportation -business and was an officer in tho old Canadian Pacific Navigation company. . For a time he was manager of a generajl trading and fishing business, and In 1902 he .went into the fishing-busineas at Olayoquot, on the west coast of Vancouyer Island, Shortly after he beoame a resident of British Columbia, Mr. Brewster Interested himself In.politloa .and-.^n.^1907 he was elected to the'' legislature tor Albernl constituency. He was re-elected in 1909, but was defeated by a small majority in 1912. During;the.g^easions ot 1910, 1911 and 1912 ha was thojonly Liberal .member in the leglslatupei In 1912'Mr.., Brewster was elected priesl-dent 6li.%e Liberal party at a convention,injV^ncouver, and in the follQ\ytng year a' cbnventldn at Revelstoke. .selected him ds. );>rovinclal leader. .He led the Liberal iparti'' in the election pampaigri In 1916,.'when,- on September 14, the government )ieadod by W.

Tho map shows a certain amount ot homestead land in Alberta proximity to railways; but this can be dismissed at once from tho calculation: it tho land was any good it- would not be vacant. It may bo laid down as an Incontrovortiblo proposition that in the older settled portions of the western provinces there is no remaining homestead lands w^ithln reach ot railways which is worth owning. � There are a considerable number ot goc^d homesteads - perhaps two' thouSarid -available along tho!-way into the Peaco River; but thosb are rapidly, going. There la a considerable influ.T ot soldiers into that district. No doubt considerable areas of homestead land could be made acceptable by building'railways. A study of tlio interesting and valuable settlement maps published from time to time by tho interior department shows very clearly the intimate rel.atlon there is between railroad building and settlement. Thus the extension of the C. N. R. Oak Point branch to Gypsum-ville, and of Its Inwood branch to the neighborhood of Fisher River was followed by the alinoet liumedit^to taking up of every available homestead In Uiese districts. Large extensions Of the railway systems ot Western Canada Is tho thing that Is least llkol.v to" happen in Western Canada during the period ot .time when tlie problem fff placing the returned .sol- corlaln. iiorcontogo of. the fioldiers.

Tfto Manitoba government's estimate, upon whiuli it is basing its tax upon vacant land, is that there are over six million acres of unoccupied, un-cuUlviited and privately-owned land in Manitoba. It this vacant land can bo brought into cultivation by employing upon it tho available man powei* of the returning aoldiora, Canada will solve at one stroke several of hor most difficult iirnbleiiis - ln.
