_ With the exception of the Manufacturers* Association Itself, no society
meddling with emigration has earned
for itself such universal condemnation

With their religious work this n-f
port haa nothing whatever to do, except to note that their religious work
to Canada Is a mere side issue to the
alma of the "Army'' in ngard to
Canadian emigration.
The Salvation Army has 'entered Into the emigration business as a commercial speculation. Existing as it
does, solely on the unquestioning
benevolence ot an indulgent public,
who have been grossly mislead as to
the nature and extent of their so-
called "social work," the "Army" is
enabled to advertise and "boost" It.
own schemes upon the money thus
subscribed, with the result that today it ranks as the most widely known
combination of emigration touts in
the British Isles. Almost every newspaper contains advertisements of the
supposed advantages of booking to
Canada through their agency. Huge
posters decorate the boardings, and
ln some places electric signs tell you
to "book to Canada through the Salvation Army."
They have an. advantage over the
ordinary tout. Inasmuch as they make
the public pay all advertising and
other expenses. A seli-denlal week or
a house-to-house bombardment will
generally produce enough funds to
keep the game going a while longer.

A well presented by the following report of a speech by William Booth
himself at Plymouth last winter:���
"I hear a melancholy account of a
number of people who have.been sent
to Canada, and who an settled in
Toronto, and at the present hour:do
not know which way to turn-���too proud
to accept soup or to beg. I know
nothing at all about that. I am not
responsible for the emigration efforts
cf other people. All I know is shout
my own people.'. I should break my
heart If I thought that the party I
blessed at, Euston station were not
going to better themselves."    ..
The fact of thousands out of employment does not affect the old man so :
long as hi. part .cular protegee of the \
moment en able o get a footing at
any price and regardless ot whether
ihe number of memployed may he Increased to make room for them. This
doctrine is also maintained e}4uv<; a
speech made at Manchester on a pre- \
"Here we have a broken down soul,
almost a wreck; wanting perhaps to
commit suicide. Must he be let to
dolt? Must lie be dented e placet
the world? The Salvation Army take
him to hand, tend nun while he to at

tion. full from bottom to top, why not
take away folk from some ot toe lower rung, and put them where they

wl^o otherwise would get no footing
at all upon the ladder. It is a most
difficult thing, and I am, aa It were,
between the upper and the nether mill*
stone. But one cannot improve the'
future without interfering with the
present* and I shall continue to go on
In whal seems to me to be the path
of duty, benevolence, and religion."
The formuta hen presented ot alternately stepping down from the
"ladder of labor"���of giving away .
position to Salvation Army proteges,
and entering the realm of chance to
probably go torough tne aame "salvage procedure" ta turn���while It may
afford permanency to the operations
of a human salvage society, will
scarcely appeal to Intelligent working-
men who have for generations been
traveling ta Just such a circle���a circle which is yearly becoming, more
circumscribed, and which .they are
determined to find a way out of, "General" Booth notwithstanding.
The danger of allowing affair, of
such national importance as the Government immigration policy to be
managed at the coutnry's expense by
people of this description Is at once
manifest, and ought to arouse the Interests of all citisens who have the
highest good of the Dominion at heart.
The Salvation Army claim, in common with every other such agency
that only people for land-laboring are
sent. We are able to prove, however,
that they.an prepared to send any
class of tradesmen with the knowledge
that they have no Intention of staying
on the land, and that they are even
prepared to connive at this result.
The following letter speaks for itself,
and is In reply to the friend of a
printer who wished to proceed to British Columbia. The saving clause beginning; "We do not advise, etc.,"
scarcely agree, with the desire to obtain another emigrant which ia evl-.

Ing emigrants wss raised, the British
office of the Salvation Army cabled to
Canada for advice from their Cana-
them out Other churches sent warnings to their kindred denominations in
Britain; but the emigration army
nonchalantly turned every statement
as they found that the sup-

it to Rhodesia, which, accord
tag to Mr. Booth himself, waa to be
the "biggest thing since Moses." As
the B. 8. A. Company wen not pre
pared to hand out as much money
M he required, the scheme was abandoned, so that Canada will now receive the undivided attention of thi.
emigration army, as no other country
has ao far been foolish enough to
recognize their aspirations or finance
their operations in thi. respect.
The determination of the Salvation
Army to enter the emigration business
' in a wholesale way was marked by
the ostentatious chartering of vessels
for this purpose; and the exposure
of Canadian industrial conditions has
come as a sad blow to this big Idea.
A large staff of officers with more or
less Canadian experience wen sent
broadcast over the British tales to
work up the Canadian emigration
fever, so that the vessel-chartering
Idea might not become a loss to the
promoters through lack of advertisement, and these people worked with
an energy worthy of a better cause.
"General" Booth has made the
statement that "he has never asked a
ply was gradually diminishing in volume, only redoubled their efforts to
dig up every possible emigrant
Evidently the work of keeping up
the stream of emigration became sadly hampered owing to the number or
people who wen aroused by the
"emigrants' bitter cry," and who were
led to question the disinterested benevolence and wisdom of a body that
persisted in a policy'Which waa condemned by the attendant circumstances. - They found that they had

of six months. Wise old owl. He thus
tries his best to add one more criminal
