It is safe lo that many persons have been attracted to this country under the meretricious representations of unscrupulous agents. The regu- lations eonlainea in'an order-in-conncil which have reached this office from Ottawa, have been wisely framed lo counteract Ihc evils mentioned, and if strictly enforced will give no-cause for anything in the way of the complaints which periodically arise. .Important amongst them is .this: Every person, firm or company, engaged in Ihe business of an intelligence office or employment or labor agency, and having business dealings with immigrants shall first obtain a u'cense for Ihis purpose from the Superintendent of immigration, Ollawa. This license unless otherwise cancelled is to remain in force for a year. Further, .the regulation contains this provision: Every holder of a license under'these regulations shall in-books provided for Dial purpose keep the following records of his business, viz., the full name and address in Canada, and home address, if-any elsewhere, of every immigrant! with' whom the. holder'has dealings; the port and date of the immigrant's arrival in Canada; Ihc name of the steamship or railway by which the immigrant has come lo Can- ada; the name and address of the. immigrant's next of kin; to- gether with Ihc name and address of the employer for whom the immigrant is engaged; the nature of the work lo be performed; the rale of viages lo be paid, Ihc'rafc of board, all deduction from wages, and other'lerins of engagement. The chargeable fee for securing an immigrant employmenl is fixed al n maximum of lo be refunded in case the immi- grant is unnble immediately upon arrival at the place whore. Ihe was represented lo be, to secure the promised employmenl nl fhe wages and upon the terms represented at lime of payment of fee. TKc regulations finally place a fine of -5100 and, in default of payment, a term of imprisonment for fhrcc rnonihs on any .holder of a license who fails lo comply wilh Ihem. The effccl of Ihe order-in-council-is bound lo be salutary and }vill help immigration lo a very wholesome e.xteni. This is flic year in which the fanners are going to keep on smiling. A license should about work mil lo prevent any one seeing a circus in I.etliliridge. Oh di-parted joys of boyhood, and gone is father's excuse'.
