Regarding this year's immigration, T.

Mr. White Concurs "More eyes than ever are turned Cauadaward in the United said .Mr. White, "and more people are coming than ever before. This year's crop is going to .be something for our department to talk about. I believe that it will be tbe real turning point of tlm tide of immigration across the line, and next year will see a larg-er Increase than ever. However, this year wo have done very well. There has been a It! per cent, increase over last year, when people came to Canada from the States to settle. We. have now twenty-one agents in tbe States in all tho principal cities, and they are not finding it hard to in- tfirust the people. Another thing which impresses me on a trip through Western Canada is the fact that tho cities :ire keeping up with the '.growth of the country. Go through Western Canada, and yon will find tho cleanest lot of cities to bo found anywhere. They are not sloppy as ono might expect1 in rapidly grow- ing centres, and this fact is impress-i ed on OUT visitors. They cannot help but talk about it." Pleased With Congress Regarding tuo.
