If I might the e-vpression 'things iiiv coming our way now, and the proper policy is to keep them coming. What imprcaaed me on the other sido was the place which Canada occupi^^s in the ]iier to ilc -vote �i�y portion of that cxpentiit-ure towards inducing skilled labor to enter into competition 'with our own mechanics and so restrict their own field of ollort. It would be just OS improper to permit the entrance of the undesimble iiersons likely to become in rfiiy way a charge upon the community, or who wotiUI pro -judicially affect its ph.ysical.- mental or moral comlit'on. Our itnmigrut -ion policy is directed to the of an agricultiu-al class who v-ill aid in the development of the country and become good, industrious citizens." "What about immigration from Europe?" "The French are a stay at homo I)eople, and 1 do not look for any givat immigration movement from t'rancc. We have had some splendid emigrants from that country, where the agriculturists art! of the most desirable class, and u� hope to get more of them. Belgium is a dersoly licop.ed country and befono long must find an outlet for its surplus population. Canada is looked upon as a desirable country to emigrate to. The Canadian exhibit at the Liege exposition strohgthcned ' this firs-t coimcil installed in the now Troviiices and it to he an exceptionally strong one. The ordnr is ono of the most influential in Vtnwrica and councils ba\-c been for-inotl in almost every City of some importance. On the occasion of the In-stallat -ion of the now council large doiiu -tat ions of brother Knights are expected to flock in from all owr Wm-tern Canada and th� Noi^h Western .States. In order that arrangements may ?>e made for their presence at the initiation ceremonies all Knights of Columbus residing in Alberta and Saskatchewan are respectfully ro -quested to send in their nanvs and addresses to the temporary sccrwtarj' of the new Council, Albert Dttbiic, care of Dubtic Diibuc, Advocates, IDdmonton.

The Belgian government docs not encourage emigration, iior on the other hand does it restrict it Wo ought to meet with success tn Belfftum and Uoliami both. Tn tiernuiuy wo'are not allou-od to carry on an emigration r>ropaganda, and in 'Austro-llUngary the laws urc res-trictive. In the latter empiretli.:iv is a goo throuffh th e great wheat belt of Southern Alberta to Cardston where ve were met by Hobt. Smith of Boundary Creek. After partaking of a good repast at the Cahoon hotel, tre started on our trip toward tho mountains. Stopping over at Mr Smith's that night and the next Jay getting our outfit ready. We had little time to spare in hunting for the wild ducks and chickens, hut man -ncfed to bag 24 during the day. r-oaving early next moruin^ we soon saw Big Chief Mountain very clearly and as .wo travelled H aecmmi as though we would soon be at the imse, although then some fiftecm miles away. Leaving Big Chief and otir rig wo wended our way across the Blacki'oot reserve and entered the mountains proper at the mouth of Swift Current just where it empties linlo the St. Mary's river. Crose ing by the beautiful St. Marys lakes when? the U. S. government arc xl work getting things in shape for ihu- large Irrigation Canal about which so much has been written, wo kept up the Swift Current, where the 011 wells are located and made �.n insjiection of the principal ones.

"No.doubt the Canadian Pacific would like to have the Soo lino ..a-tecded. through to Seattle," said a closely interested capitalist tod'jy "I dSn't know of any line that is in better condition to b�ild tho trans-nottinental than the C.P.ll. Itow ever, I don't think the extcnsiion �vill Ihj inatle to spite the Orewt Northern, but because tlie line promises to make a due return' 'fhe Soo, now you see, is the onl.y transcontinental which docs not have to climb i,h^ mountains or cross the desert to get to tho coast. It uses the Canadian Pacific rails. If the new line did iiot to pay it would not con structed at all." The decision by the Soo line to have its own rails from Minneapolis to tho coast, thus adding another Twin City I'acific Coast route, is ex pected to create dismay in the IF.ll camp. It is said by railroad lui-n alroad.v the Soo line has gi\-on the Great Northern a deadly blow in | bisecting all of tho feeders which the Hill road had stretched northward in North Dakota like a lot of ter-tacles to scoop in wheat and other products for a lorg haul over its linos to the eastern market. The Soo came along and shoved across the country a line between the Great Northern and Canadian Pacific clear from Thief River Falls to Kenn�ar.>. N.D. With the line planned to Du luth end an extension farther westward. Winnipeg, Oct. S.-li. H. Spin,;'*, who has been ir. the Grand Prairie countfy, some l.'iO miles north of Edmonton since last spring, is bark in the city. "Tho Grand Prairie country is a-bout DO miles stpiare in extoijt." said he to a reporter, "aiKl to demonstrate its pro early in May was reopwl on .July 23 and is expected to yieW over 40 biishols to the acre. The really cold weather sets in shortly iKfore Chrlstmtis and sprirg o|>ens in March. What im -presses the pros|h.>ctivo settler nior*; than anything else perhaps is th.; length of the day up there during the summer. Wo only have darkness about three hours during that sea -son. "A great drawback to the tH.stricl is its lack of postal facilities but the federal authorities have pfoihis-cd that this will soon be romotiioil. "Tho luxuranco of the grasses is simply wonderful. I saw |)ea vine which would meet over a horse s anck. Very few of the settlers put up any hay, cattle and horses roaming at will the entire v inter. I saw one settler who had hay in a stack for 14 >-ears, he flnding it unnecessary to feed any. The prairie wolf causes considerable depredations up there and the government is offering fl5 for the pelt of tho female and 910 for that of tho male. Other fur bearing acimals are found in great numbers further north, trappers i�-turning with as many as 500 pelts to a man and when it is considered that they receive go ar.d tipwards for skinis. the profits of the business are obvious. Fish ai-e very plentiful in tho many rivers ami lakes which abound in the locality. But what surprised mo most of all was the richness of the garden products. Early fro.sts are unheard of and vegetables ripen in the gardens. One of the settlers told mo that it is a common occurrence to grow .watormelons in the gttiNlens. while Indian corn and maize thrive wonderfully. In conversation with provincial sec -retary Harris of the Alberta government, 1 loarred from him that he is liesipsMi with enquiries abou't this district.

If this piece of news is worthy of your print, 1 would he glad if your exchanges would copy, and should these lines meet the eye of any who ha\'e not exhausted their homestead ' rights and would like to join this village and help nie in the meantime to prepare for the coming people. I have written some instructions to II1.V correspondents and more will follow as tho proposition makes pVj-grcss, ono item of which is to interest s^iie olrl country capitalists to lend a hand in their business interests to help on the movement, I hope no n-et blanket will bo usetl either by old timers .or young tim ors to retard this progress awl dc-vclopiner.t of this proposed colony. Tradesmen may notice and inwarrlly digest the matter for if the proper number can be made up that is desirable it would Iw well for them to hawj a care, for the colon(ir w.ij' ha\-c numbers, and also a unitoii purpose. O. T. Moose Jaw, Oct. 2.-Coal dealers here handling the product of th^*. A. K. & 1. Co's mine at Lethbridge, have received the following circular: Lethbridge, Sept. 25, 190). Sir,-As you aro aware the Company's miners, without giving 24 hours notice of their intention so to do, went out on strike in March last and nuiry of thu old employees are still on strike. This tK.4ing the case, and as orders for coal are now being sent in rap-idl.v, the Company has decided to call the attention of all local representatives to the fact, that though the mine is not shut dowci the output is greatly reduce at home at High Itivor after Oct. in, / (Claivsholin Rex'icw.)
