UTXARD'S LTN11HJKT CURB* The settlement of the went bus been the problem of Cntutdu for u generation, Since tho construction of the Canadian Pacific Hallway revealed the expanse and something of the resources of tho western land. this problem has confronted the Canad  lun people und Hie Canadian Uov -ornmont, and the stagnation of prosperity In the Industrial and com-merrlal lifo of the Dominion ' has been the reflection of tho negligence or energy displayed In the solution of this problem. For a decade this problem van worse than ignored by a policywhich plundered tho western resources whilo it strangled the opportunity for westorn settlement and development and tho result was reflected in the industrial and commercial paralysis Of tho Dominion from sea to sea. Manufacturers languished from lack of markets, mechanics unablo to obtain employment tramped tho streets of Ontario cities under the gruesome signal of starvation, foreign capital held aloof from tho unpromising field, whilo thousands of Canadian born nod to tho United States to And the opportunities of livelihood denlodthein at home. Ten years ago this policy of conserving" the land in unoccupied usefulness camo to an end, and the Federal Government took up with courage and resolution the policy of peopling the "West with those who were willing and able to bring its resources into use, Tho results have been as apparent in Eastern as in Western Canada, and, marvellous as has been the change on the plains, it has been equalled in degree by that in tho eastern provinces. Fnc-tories which before stood idle are running night and day, employment offers everywhere and at satisfactory wages, capital from abroad is bolng fretly invested in our development and industrial enterprises, Canad  ians no longor flock abroad insearch of opportunity, but find it in plenty under thoir own flag, while thous  ands come annually from abroad, attracted by the hopo of finding better conditions of life. litis problem confronts the people of Canada today as much as at any futuro time in thoir history, and, splendid as have been 4ho results already achieved,, they are only tho beginning of things. These results, however, have surely been great enough and satisfactory enough to demand a continuance of the policy by which they roro brought about and to amply demonstrate that the future of Canada depends on whoth er or not tho vacant and unproduc tlve lands of- the west are given into' the control of tho men who can and will make thoin productive. vol\os the two simple questions of Hiving the land to tho settler on condition Unit ho cultivate it, and of persuading the settler to accept the offer. I uder ordinary conditions this the Cnnudinn Pacific Irrigation Col-oolzutlon Company, a company was given permission to undertake the Irrigation work. Previous to this, the Canadian Pacific Hallway were the problem of settling asked if they desired to include any the west. Hut there are exceptions pari of the tract in their Irrigation to these ordinary conditions which (tract. They replied in the negative. demand other than this ordinary method of treatment. For Instance, it would not be a generally beneficial policy to j*?rmit one settler or I a group of settlors to homestead tho only availnl.l.' timber area in ' an otherwino prairie district. and to avoid the hardship this would Indict on other settlers, limber re  serves ure formed, on which home  slenders are not permitted to locate. An even more important oxceptlon is tho case of soml-arid lands, which aro fit for agricultural purposes only when Irrigated anil upon which in consequence net tiers will not locate In sucli cases tho ordinary honm-stead regulations apply exactly the same us in the other dls -tricts, but ihe settlers for very goad reuson, decline to homestead land upon which they cannot make a living. In consequence the land, though avnllablo to homesteaders, lies unoccupied and unproductive until some nutans are provided for supplying water upon it EACH IX HIS OWN TONGUE. (Hamilton Spectator.) T. Maclood was chosen cortalnly not a sign that the Irrigation would be un Inoxjienslve undertaking. In the contmet then given the Kobbins Irrigation Company the privilege of .purchasing the laud 1h contingent upon the construction of the irrigation works; having con  structcd the works and bought the land the company arc at lll>erty to sell the land in competition with free homestead land, and also with other land which may be offerod for sale; tho land remaining unsold at tho end of fifteen years revertn to the Crown; and the rate which the company nuty charge tho farmer on the land for water from the Irri -gat ion vorks is fixed by tho Milliliter of the Interior. Hy this arrange ment, the company can get its money out of thtt enterprise only by completing the irrigation works, ami then only by selling tho land In the market in competition with other land. | a mora reasonable and curtain The Hev. l^unon Aliuon new rector of Christ's Church Cathedral, Is blessed with greut gift** of oratory.

For twenty-three years the district has been traversed by the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway. For twenty years it has been traversed by the Crow's Nest lino of the Canadian Pacific Railway. If any district west of Winnipeg has been favorably located as regards railway facilities, aside from Calgary and Regina, it has beenthis district. During the lost ten years settlers have been pouring into the west by the thousands and every settier who went to Alberta fromthe east by way of the C.P.R. main line or Soo line, traversed the district* The homestead regulations have been applicable there as else where. Yet ao far as homesteaders aro concerned, "ie area In question is as void of seitltinent as when the Indian chased the buffalo The land was open to the settler, but the settler did not want It and would nut take It for the very ex col lent reason that he could not make a living from it.
