MacLEO The Great Clothiers of The Great West PHONE 444 LETHBRIDGE P.O. BOX 1352 ASTOUNDED BY GREAT CHANGE Immigration Officer Jury Had Not Seen This Connlry In Seven Years A, F. Jury, the Dominion immigra- tion agent at Liverpool, does not be- lieve in telling the people of Great Britain about things that he does not know personally. For that rea- son he is making an extended and careful tour all through Canada, ex- pecting to return to his office in abou% six weeks. Yesterday he went down to Warner to see Mr. and Mrs. Bar- rows, whom he used to know in On- tario twenty-eight years ago, to see for 'himself what they, as averra; settlers were doing. What he saw in his trip convinced him as he told the Herald that there was no country in the world that he knew of that can beat this district. He has been in the West four .differ- ent times, the last time being seven years ago and he says that the change wrought in that time could not be believed unless a man sees it for Try This Castle Brand 11RI ALTO 3 for 50c. 'Made In Berlin by this shape In Elk BhwJf. named At that .'time'-there -was not of -wheat to be seen any- himself. a blade where in Southern Alberta. He told that the' last time he was at High River, seven' years ago, he. saw a load of thoroughbred bulls unloaded, and turned Joose at the station to scatter in all, directions or be driven off by the cowboys. Now the whole country is covered with wheat fields and he was amazed to learn that from High..River ..last year there were over a million bushels of grain being shipped. The same is a great- er or less degree with all the other towns that" at that time were only open prairie. He is making a tour of country seeing things at first hand so that will be sure of his information and will know the exact conditions that exist in the different localities to which the emigrants want to come He will then be able to tell them ex- actly what to expect and to give ihern. accurate advice as to where 3est to go. Mr. .Jury says that the work of the immigration department is running ce smoothly than ever has the best equipped staff it ever had. The men in .charge know the business from >oth ends, knowing both the 'Country and the kind of men required. J; Obed Smith, the commissioner at London, was formerly in charge of -he .work; in Winnipeg. J. Bruce Walker, who is now in Winnipeg, was commissioner in Scotland and; was assistant in London while W.D.Scott who directs the work from Ottawa, las had a large experience in immi- gration work in-Europe and the TJnit- d States. All of theee men have rained staffs of workers under them o that the best work should be done hat can be done. They are not try- ng to swell the numbers of immi- grants but are only sending such as wrill receive a benefit by coming and also a benefit to the country when hey get here. Formerly in the Old Country Boards f Guardians and Distress Commit- ees kept sending their perpetual pau- jers to Canada. They would figure jp the cost of maintaining the pau- sers and if the cost of sending them o Canada was less than the cost of the pauper they would send iim out, taking the money from the jnicijpal taxes tk> dp so. These people are no good -anywhere and )ecome a on the people of anada. Now th'ey will not allow a man to jome out assisted by charitable in- titutions. He must have at 'his des- tination in addition to his rail- way fare to his destination or he cannot land. When a man sends for his family they are subjected to a trict medical examination and not allowed to come if not suitable set- lers. The department makes an allow- ance in the case oi agricultural la- >orers and domestic servants. If they iave the price of their transportation hey are allowed to go under the spe- ial direction of the agents but only hose who are very highly recom- mended are sent this way. They, are ure of employment as soon as they and and will not become a charge on he community but all other laborers .re required to have when they each their destination." They recog- izc thai there; is no use filling up he country with useless trash. The ountry needs rustlers and they can et a reasonable number of them. There are a large number of men, Ir. Jury says, who have been forced o leave the villages and go to the owns. They have had some farm xperionce and if they live with a armer in this country for a. year they get the experience that makes them first laborers. There is no surplus in Great Britain of actiial ploughmen as are scarcer there than 'here, there being according to the latest reports only a quarter of a million in the whole United Kingdom. Mr. Jury says that in the course of his tours through the country de- livering lectures on Canada, he often is refused the use of the echoolroom by the clergymen to hold his meet- Jury, and we want to gee per, you know. But, Mr. cannot spare any of our laborers w servants you know. And we low you the use of the school to hold your meetings to pers'uad them to go to Canada. We aie ry, Mr. Jury, for we really love colonies you know." This is the titude of a great many of the peojfle The married .laborers little tihere that it is are next to possible for them to, save Tip enough to -come over. They {have "hiring .fairs" an many parts Old Country. Married men exper ploughmen, are ISO 'to a year. Young men, nineteen to. twenty-one, many of them expert enough to enter the ploughini .fellows that are They are young a year. Such as these couraged to come out by allowing, them to land -without having required from-the others. This latter class are the useful in Canada, and not set in their -ways and_ learn to become excellent Canada. I The -same is true with domestic servants.. When told that it will take about cten land them in "Winnipeg, they open'their eyes and "Ten pounds! If I had that madh.' I'd be rich over and the case seems hopeless as their -wages areVso" small that it takes years to save "fen pounds. The department sends out those who are very highly recom- mended to people who want domestic" servants and are willing to prepay the passage over. v Mr, Jury has been twelve yearsfat the work and describes in a most .in- teresting way the work he and other agents are doing over in the; Old Country to give Canada as good class -of immigrants as possible." They' are devoting their energies to''secta- ing quality rather than quantity. left last night going eastward -and expects to land in Liverpool' earljr'jbi1 November ,to carry on the good LABOR MEN ARE AGAINST GAMBLING Winnipeg Trades and Labor' Council Submits Resolution to Quebec, Sept. the Tradei Congress this afternoon the. new solution introduced were one Winnipeg Trades and Labor Council against race track gambling, asking for the total prohibition of the and putting on record the "regret that the government has Bot as yet taken action." The white slave traffic was the sub- ject of another resolution, introduced on behalf of the Winnipeg Trader' and Labor congress, the effect of which was to-urge upon the ment the introduction of such legis- lation as would make the man found guilty in such places liable to heary penalty.
