HEREFORDS WERE LEADERS, AiOA SALE IN CALGARY Coaldalc Breeder Gives Figures -Mr. Davidson a Director of Provincial Body    250 IMiaRANTt   SAIL FOR CANADA   LONDON, March 2�.-(By   Canadian Associated Press)- ?  Two hundred and fifty church   army emigrants, mostly ex-sold-  ^ lers and their families, sailed ^ ^ for Canada by tho Empress of ^  France, on Saturday. King  ^ Oeorge sent a farewell message ^  expressing "tho hope and the  may prosper and by showing  ^ true pioneer spirit and bravo ^ ^ endeavor help In building on   strong and lasting foundations  the mighty dominion of the > west."  Commissioner Eadle, of the Salvation Army, who was lately in the city, hoB a keen sense of humor. With much gusto ho related that, as far dh lii6�experlence went, it was far easier to gain admission into Canada than it was into South Africa. On landing at Cape Town he was asked by a Dutch Immigration Officer If ho had ever been in prison. "LotB ot times" said the Commissioner, and he rolled off a string, of prisons ho had been In Uie Old Country, meaning, of course, tiiat he had visited them in the Army's mission work. "Tou cannot (�ome in bore" said tho Immigration man "South Africa is not going to liave any Jailbirds come to It." In the ond, as the situation was getting serious, in tho attitude taken by the officer to send him l)nck to where he belonged, the Commissioner, while fully iipproniatlng the humor of the position,'explained things and was able to f onvince tlfc Dutchman that ho waa not so black as he thought he was. 'In Canada when I landed" continued tho Commissioner "I was asked If I had ever been In an insane asylum. "Lots of them" I replied. But, said tho Commissioner, there was no fun in this Instance, the Canadian Immigration twigged who I was and immediately told mo to pass on. The Commissioner had much to say o;' tho ubiquity of tho Scotchman in that he found him everywhere in bis travels. Once, when addressing a huge concourse of negroes where v/blte men could not bo expected to lio, he saw one ot them silting in the big crowd. .\s,ked who he was, one of the natives replied that he was a Scotchman who was out prospecting. The political situation in South .\frlca, tho Commissioner considered V. rii? full of perplexities in tho rivalry 1ic'tw6eu the Smuts' followers and the iiortKOg faction. He felt, that majority opinion was In favor of tho British c.'inucctlon and that so far as tho natives were concerned they were all out for Britisli rule. REAL ESTATE IN (Special to The Korald) RDMONTON, March 2!>.-It was because tho terms of the bill proposing orgaulaatlon of real estate men in Alberta into an association were thought to bo too stringent that the govern-mont declined to go on with the measure according to iuformatoin given out Monday, "Aa it stood, the real estate bill would virtually have created u monopoly of tho auHOclatlon in that business,' said Hon. J. R. Boyle. �"The principal objection to the measure as proposed to ua was that It would have prevented anyone not actually In the real estate buslnoss from selling land for anyone else. "Ii often happens that a man tells bin neighbor that he will give htm a commission if ho sells aome of his land, and many deals are handled that wa^'. To compel membership in an association for a deal like this would merely be interfering with ordinary' business and the government saw no leasoQ why tbaro should bo a monopoly in the real estate business any more than In tho raisin or prune business." The bill was rejected as a government bill and there is little possibility that It will be brought in again be-lore tho ond of tho aosaiou.
