Spokesman-Review, from a visit to
the Flathead oil Holds and has decided to resign a position with the
government In the railway construction department lu Alaska to become
associated with some of the companies that ure planning operations in
the Flathead region.
"1 opened the Dcuuiuout oil llelds lu
Texas, superintending drilling ll!
wells, 11 of which now ure producing, and drilled 7 producing wells lu
the Hocking valley In Ohio, besides
six of the hest gas wells in Indiana;
but I never have examlnud as promising an oil district as the Flatehad,"
said Mr. Ferris at thc Spokane hotel
yesterday. "I was wltli the Pearson
Bros, ln Tamplco, Mexico, and my
knowledge ot geology and oil Indications comes from 22 years' practical
experience, and I believe my judgment
Is as good ns that ot any man In the
business today.
"After two days' careful investigation of conditions In the Flathead valley 1 do not hesitate to say that I regard Ib as tlte most promising Held for
development in the world today. The
contact is perfect and also thc lay of
the sand rock In the bed of Sage
creek, which I examined thoroughly
for several miles. I am backing my
judgment In a heavy purchase of
Flathead Petroleum company stock,
and I am planning to resign a good
job with the government ln Alaska
to take a hand In developing the Flathead Held."

Love is always connected with service aud Bucrliice, Service may be
divorced from love, for a mini may

Jie question, "Is life worth living?"
A'as answered fn the affirmative,
inly when we lay down our lives, In
.he sense of the text, shall life be
vorth living. Ponder well upon what
Ironfel of Labrador said at Montreal
■ecently: "Life Ik a beautiful tiling be-
ause of the opportunities lt gives for

vorth living for. AU the suicides,

We must keep before our binds the
fact that to lay down one's life does
mt of necessity Include dying.     Wi
have uu abundance of Instances when |
the laying down of life meant death,
and, on the other hand, numerous 11*
lustrations showing that the laying
down of life meant exalted service,
■utc'i as was exemplified by General
Booth,   Father   Dam len,   Dr.   Living- j
stone, and by Jesus Christ, the super-1
latlve and all-eclipsing example. Said '
Lyman Abbot, "We lay down our lives
when we give tbem to a groat cause,
to a great service, to a great leader."
.Vow Jesus died, but the message of
tilts  particular text is  tliat  He  laid :
down His life in noble, self-denying
work for mankind.   From Bethlehem's
cradle to Calvary's cross It was a life
consecrated to the social, moral and
spiritual regeneration of His fellows. :
Thus He laid down His life!
I ask two questions.
1. H'IihI Is life? 1 take one answer
out of many, regarding it as comprehensive, namely, "Llfo is response to .
environment." Without our own nar-
row circle, beside? our own needs,
apart from our own trials, there is a
world oi" broken hearts, of struggling
victims of evil, of failures, of despairing men! Those who golfishiy cry.
"look out for number oue," if thoy
only knew It, utter•*%suicidal maxim
for life Is response to the call of need
ar*. und us.    It Is easj  to resign from
all gooil work, easy to allow auotli
to take our place; hut al
narrowing of mv, the I
the beginning of (loath even In life.
We live only insofar as we respond
to the world around lis, "Whosoever
shall save lire shall lose It," is true
also In this sense.

Trafedy again played a gruesome
/(sit to Erickson, w.ien on Thursd:
'veiling thu grim hand of death laid
aold on one of her la* est citizens. Ole
K. Tofte. Ho had only been a rtsfd-
ent of Erickson for a few month
having boifglit the little ranch Urom
Mr. MeDougall, but In tho short time
io had been tiiere Mr. Tofte had made
many friends and the news of bis sud
den death came as a severe shack to
them. It seemed tbat Mr. Tofte had
ost some money and the fact came as
a sudden surprise to him, causing a
shock which no doubt affected his
heart. He had frequently complained
tt heart trouble and was very excitable at times. When found he lay with
his face down In the dust, his arm
still holding the bridle rein of his
horse, nnd the faithful animal standing over him dumbly waiting for his
masters next command, a picture that
could not help but make an impression on tho hardest heart. The first
person to pass wns Alex. Duperrez,
who went at once to the hotel and
had the doctor called. Dr. Henderson
soon arrived but It was too late, life
was then extinct. On Friday morning
a coroner's jury, having examined
several witnesses, came to the decision thut the deceased came to his
death from natural causes. The funeral took place In the late afternoon
und the old man was laid to rest In
thc presence of a few of the friends
lie had made since coming to this district to live. Rev. F. I* Carpenter

Word Is brought to us from over
the river of the loss by fire this afternoon of tha house, barn and outbuildings of the Dun English ranch.
Tlie loss Is quite considerable, the fire
having made a clean sweep. The
cause of the tire was a mystery as Mr.
English was away working at the
ferry when the lire started and there
was no one about nt the time thnt be
is aware of.
After visiting the Roosville valley
and Tobacco Plains country several
days, we are once more back In Elko,
the most picturesque stmt In southern B.C. and thc tales of woe around
the sawmill towns would produce
tears in nn elephant. The serious
state of conditions are making men
think; some of them are thinking so
hard that their hide Is commencing
to crack, and their muscles to expand.
They are studying the cause of this
stringency and what the government
is doing In tlie matter. They have
just hnd an election In Manitoba, and
should tills government consult a fortune toller In the present emergency
tliey would be told, you're going to
get something that you don't expect.
Let the women have a vote, goodness
knows they couldn't make conditions
worse than tliey are. From Dorr
along tho Hue to Gateway, oil stakes
look like a prnlrio line fence. The
Itoosville valley is tbe sume, hut the

ery works as well ns It does tn the
provinces of Western Canada or tbe.

Contracts have been closed by Mr.
Qeorge gangster, secretary of the
11. c. Agricultural association for a
number of special attractions for the
approaching Dominion exhibition,
which will be of exceptional merit.
one of the features is a carefully selected corps of tlie Hoyal North West
Mounted Police, which is coming to
VIetoriu, having been given permission to make the trip by Sir Robert
Hoi-lion, for the purpose of giving a
dtiiblay of horsemanship. They have
appeared at different shows in the
.With wesl, and their performance
una created something of a sensation.

■ieo some thing which is rarely offered.
Arrangements have been made with
the proprietor of one of the local
moving picture establishments for a
Jiuplay of ti unique character.   It wlll
akd  the  form of a cowboy's  relay
■uoo, rough riding for thc British Co-
iimbtuii championship, an old timers' race, and a wild horse competition. There will be other events Including such novelties as fancy rop-
ng und riding. This program will
not be confined to oue duy, It being
tin; intention to spread It over almost
tho entire week of the show, which ls
to be held September 21st to 26th.
While tlie rough riders are busy, the
cinematograph operator also will be
active. The comprehensive eye of his
machine will record all Incidents in
iiTiiiectiou wltli the various competitions. These will be shown at the
Victoric theatres and later forwarded throughout Cnnada.
There wlll be no lack of music. The
chief feature of thc attractions tn this
tine will be the appearance on the
Pacilic coast for tlie first time of the
lumoiiH 91st Highlanders' band of
Hamilton, Ontario. It has come as far
west as the prairies, but never has
visited British Columbia heretofore.
The Highlanders have established a
splendid reputation for themselves as
i musical organization, some of the
best known critics having pronounced
them the finest musical body of Canada. In their performance at the
forthcoming show, they wlll be assisted by a number of local bands, as
well us some of those from the main-
and. It has been proposed that a
mussed bund contest should be held on
one of the evening of the fair. While
no definite arrangements have been
made, there Is no doubt that some
such feature will be Introduced.
As for the Dominion exhibition
proper, lt may be said that the prospects could not be brighter. A large
new building has been completed and
additions have been made to the majority of the other structures on the
ground. Lawns have been sown and
other necessary Improvements carried
out. From the enquiries which have
been received already from the local
offices, there can be no question that
the entries will be record breaking in
numbers, The only trouble that may
arise Is with regard to finding suitable
accommodation for all applicants. The
fruit growers are taking a pronoun-
e.-il Interest In tbe show, and the secretary expects that the display wlll
be a complete and creditable Index Into the fruit growing possibilities of the
province. The district exhibits, which
will Include contributions from practically every agricultural section of
British Columbia, alone will be worth
going a long way to see.
Special attention Is being paid to
the provision of space for an excep.
tlonally large entry of stock. When

What would happen to Vancouver
hi case of Invasion?
Gurtflt Singh and Ids horde of unwashed Hindus have depurted with
the Komagatu Muru, leaving but an
unpleasant memory, yet their visit
awakens a feeling of disquiet among
the people of Vancouver, What would
havo   happened   Imd   the   Komagata
Mam heen accompanied by a warship
more powerful than thc Rainbow?
What could Vancouver do if a foreign
power attempted to laud as many soldiers as they wished? Vancouver
could do nothing.
While the question of Invasion ls
indeed remote, the fait remains that
Vaucouver Is absolutely defenceless.
H.M.S.C, Rainbow, the subject of
many jibes, was tho direct cause of
the departure of tlie Hindus. The
sturdy little cruiser was needed uud
needed badly. Unfortunately, the
Italniinw would he helpless before any
modern, (Irst-clasa lighting vessel.
A (leet of Rainbows would bc almost
as futile.
Vancouver Is tlie center of population in Hritish Columbia, it is the
largest, wealthiest and most Import-
nut city iu thc provtnoe. This is not
a boast, but n mere statement of fact.
Vet Vancouver, with its magnificent
harbor, could be destroyed ln u few
hours by an Invading fleet. The destruction would be so easy and unaccompanied by any danger that the
city might as well thow up its hands
nt tlie first shot. Naturally Vancouver would he tlu; Ideal point of attack.
its strategic position would make it
necessary as a base of supplies.
Tiiere is nothing to provent the capture of Vancouver but the cruiser
Rainbow. Before an Knglish tleet
could reach these waters the enemy
would he so firmly entrenched that ll
would he Impossible to dislodge them.
The beautiful city of Vancouver
1 would lie 11 smoking ruin and thc
1 people driven from their homes at the
will of the Invader.
It is absolutely Imperative thai
toast defences be erected at Vancou-
; ver. Without these the city Is at the
mercy of nny who choose to take it
' Whether or not uu Invader could go
l much further than Vancouver is be-
; vond the question. The safety of thc
i city itself Is involved solely. The des-
j true tion of Vancouver would throw
1 tlie entire province into chaos. With
\ the financial and business center gone
! British Columbia would be temporar-
I Hy lost. It is doubtful If Canada
could he invaded successfully. Even
with tlie entire coast In the hands of
the enemy, tlio Dominion would still
ac able to muster au army to do
battle on land. Tills, however, doe*
not help Vancouver.
The establishment of coast defe'icc*
\ nt   Point   Atkinson   or   Point   Grey
would   he   expensive,  no  doubt.    If
Canada can afford to erect drill halls
throughout the country at any town
large enough to support a post oC'c
and two general stores, surely it can
afford   to   make  Vancouver  impreg-
j liable.   Military experts have made re-
! ports as to the advisability and pos*
i siblllty of fortifying Vancouver. Tiiey
: all agree that It could be done nt a
: minimum expense, owing to thc na-
j tural advantages to be found. In spite
j of tluit, no move has been made to
! carry on the most important military
I work that could be devised,   lt ls our
i duty as Canadians to demand thnt tills
j lie done uud at once.
1    Proper coast defences would pre-
\ vent the landing of a hostile force at
' any point within twenty miles of Van-
; couver.   Tills would ensure the safety
j of this city  nnd  New  Westminster,
J making It impossible for attack elth-
, er  through    Burrard Inlet or     thc
1 Fraser River.    A hostile licet would
then be forced to choose a spot twen-
ly,miles from a railway, making their
J task a hundred times more difficult.
j Prince Rupert, too, should be offered
; protection now that It hus become a
I railway terminal,   Canada cannot af-
| ford to remain helpless,
;    The question Is not one of politics,
tint of policy.   Government and opposition alike should rejoice in making
Uie   Dominion   more   powerful.    Nor
should It be left to the Imperial government   to   decide.    Canada   should
, build   these   coast   defences   herself,
without    delay.     There   have   been
i enough delays,    sir Wilfrid Laurier
' iitivinn t'd a  naval  policy some year*-*
ago tliat resulted In the purchase of
1 the RatnbOW and the Nlobe.   The Canadian  navy  was dragged Into poll-
tics and became a national Joke. Immediately  tlie   policy  of creating  u
Canadian  navy  was dropped.    Then
came Kir Robert Borden's policy of
contributing $.1.1,000,000 for thc construction  of  three  dreadnoughts,  to
remain  the  property of Oreat Britain.   This was defeated by the Canadian  senate?    What   ls   the   result?
Canada has no navy save the Italn-
' how.
Without discussing the values of
the naval policies, nnd they both have
' their good and bud points, it ls ob-
been brought Into effect. As far as
results go, the Rainbow, by frightening thc Hindus out of the harbor, vindicates to some extent the policy of
having Canadian war vesels on thc
Pacific coast. Apparently it is useless for the government to pursue Its
most recent policy. It ts certain,
however, that both Liberals and Conservatives would gladly support .a
measure to provide suitable coast defence on the Pacific. They could not
do otherwise and bc true Canadians.
Stress must be laid upon the fact
that there is no Immediate danger of
uu invasion. This is no attempt at
Jingoism, to give birth to a new war
scare. Nor is It necessary to quote
thc million trite phrases which relate the advantages of being prepared. Thc fuct ls tliis: Vancouver Is
defenceless. What Is tho country
going to do about it? -Suturduj Sunset.

Half thc world exists for the sake of
supplying 1 Doplo lo the other halt
North America, Including Canada, Is
thc greatest area In the world for human transplantation from other countries that have any degree of civilization. The United States set the pace
in this peculiarly American process of
assimilating races and languages Into
a more or less homogenous people.
The process Is still going on, and
looks as though it might last out the
century, from the miner to the man
who signs checks ln live figures, produces a national character as distinct as Kngland, Germany or Franco.
In the process of building a new nation out of several old ones, Canada
follows along fifty years behind the
United States. Thc attitude of this
country toward this problem Is an in-
.erestlng subject for discussion. Shall
thc Ruthcnian and his log shack bc
issfmllated and the Hindu with his
curban be kept out? What limit shall
be placid on Oriental ond what encouragement shall be given to the
igricultural workers from Europe?
What system of assimilation can be
idopted that will make real Canadians of people who speak a score of
anguages and are steeped In foreign
Britton B. Cooke, writing in the Ca-
ladian Courier, has answered a few of
.he questions of what has become of
tome of the million men who have
been lost to Canada In the past ten
/ears.   His article follows:
Kor centuries historical scholars
nave been puzzled over what happened to be ten lost tribes of Isroel. There
.vere originally twelve, each derived
from a son of Jacob. Only two remained in thc records of history. A
Canadian preacher of considerable
ante some years ago used to contend
.hat the Anglo-Saxon people were the
:en lost t.ibes. Nobody believed him.
It doesn't very largely matter in present-day economics.
But it docs matter, vitally and permanently to this country, as to what
lias become ot a million people which
Canada should have today and has not
got; the million who came but went
away somewhere; the more than one-
tenth ot our population that we lost
somewhere between 1901 and 1911 after going to the expense of grting
them here, just us wc lost a million
native-born in the decades before
1901-1911. because we hadn't work and
visible wealth enough in the country
to keep them here after we had produced them.
Kvery Immigrant costs the Canadian
government something like fl.23 to
procure. It Is mere trifle. If, after
lie reaches Canada, ho settles down to
i permanent aud useful citizenship the
sum Is not worth counting except as
an excellent Investment; he brings to
tho country many times his cost. But
if, after having been attracted here,
he docs not remain, goes to some other country or returns to the laud from
which he came, then Canada not only
loses what it cost to coax him here,
but also, whatever he takes away with
him, which should be, If our belief ln
Canada Is soundly bused, much more
than he brought. In 1901 the Dominion held 5,871,315 people. Thc rate of
natural Increase, after allowing for
deaths, was 1.^7 per cunt per annum,
or In ten years 10.79 per cent. The
Immigration between 1901 and 1911, Inclusive, amounted to 3,621,144. Thus,
adding to the population In 1901, this
immigration, and the half million due
to natural Increases on the original
population lu 1901, Canada should, In
1911, have had a population of 8,392.-
459. Instead of which the census reported only 7,200,648. Somewhere,
somehow, In addition to the toll of
death, Canada lost over a million
We sometimes point to the Incoming
ship-loads of Immigrants as though
they were so much net gain to the
country. Public speakers hold up
both hands to proclaim the benefits
of this great in-sweeping tide. They
enlarge upon what It means to the
business of the country; how the Immigrant brings with him contributions
to the nation's money resources, and
other forms of wealth; how he affects
the balance of trade, the price of
labor, the productivenes of the country and the value of corner lots. We
have fallen into the habit of regarding
each ship-load, arriving at Quebec or
St. John or Halifax, as net gain, as
though mere admission to the country
was equivalent to Incorporating the
stranger into the fnbric of the community. Apparently this Is not so.
One million men and women were lost
to Canada In ten years through other
than natural channels.
Where did they jo?  In the etatliti-
cal record of the United States It Is
written that ln 1912, 55,990 Canadians
took up residence In the United States,
Yet our immigration records claim a
gain from the United States of 133,-
710. In 1913 the United States took
from us 73,802, while we prided ourselves on capturing 139,009—-as though
our gain was a net gain. In other
words, against our so-called gain
were losses in ona yeur equal to the
population of Kdmonton (iu 1911), and
in the next year another loss, equal to
the population of Medicine Hat. Tills
has not been all. Kvery outward-
bound vessel from the St. Lawrence
to Kiirope, aud many American vessels as well, carried one, or two, or a
dozen, or fifty souls leaving Canadian
homes for homes on the other side of
thc seu, there to spend the competence
they hud acquired In Canada, or tell
of their failure Although between
1901 and 1911 Canada drew from the
British Isles 973,840 immigrants, the
British Isles drew from her over-seas
|K)Ssesslons 1,422,571 emigrants, of
whom not less than half came from
Canada. While wc havo pointed at
the in-rolling tide we have overlooked
the under-tow.
You have been making this mistake," said an Knglish observer. "Yuu
have to a large extent overlooked the
fact thut an immigration policy must
have two departments. You must not
only attract people to your country
and make rough und ready calculation as to where they wilt lit Into your
arrangements, but you must see that
they are fitted In. While the body
must, of course, have food procured
for lt by Its arms, It Is of paramount
in porta nee that lt should digest that
food and assimilate its properties. You
have been having a slight touch of
immigratioiittl indigestion—that Is
what I should call it. Tho people who
have returned from Canada to their
original homes, or who have wandered
to the United States or to the Australasian colonics, have not been assimilated, aud the fact that they have

"No one knows that better than we
do," retorted a Dominion government
immigration ofliclul, to whom the remark was addressed. "But no one is
more helpless than we are. We can
promote Immigration by lectures and
hy other advertising means. We can
give information and can encourage
or discourage various classes of Immigrant according to the needs of the
Dominion, as wc know well. But when
the immigrant of the right class has
been brought to Canada, then It ls
chiefly up to the provinces to sec that
he stays there and makes a good citizen. We may even give him free land
and books of advice piled as high as
your head, but the provinces must
bring other Influences to bear to hold
him ln place and to Cunndiantze tlie
of Canadian population by iinmlgru-
The three chief reasons for tlie loss
to the country, nnd Canada as a nation, as shown by Investigation, nre:
First, disappointment on thc part of
the Immigrant. He falls to Dud the
work or thc fortune which he had expected to find and quits the country In
disgust. There arc not so many of
this type since the government took
steps to restrict thc immigration of
mechanics and- artisans, for whom
there wns not a large demand. The
majority of those who now leave because of disappointment or discontent
are of an Inferior type, usually lacking
In thc qualities which lead toward
success. The second cause of Canadian immigration is sudden wealth, or
comparative wealth; the laborer from
the south of Kuropc or northern Kiirope often accumulates what is to htm
a small fortune In a few years of work
on Canadian railways or other public
works. Instead of remaining In Canada to spend lt he goes "home," where
he may make a show before his
friends and where the cost of living Is
not so high. This accounts for the return of Bulgarians, Italians, and others Of the type of railroad navies.
The third cuuse Is the most serious.
It Is, as an Immigration expert called
it, the "wandering disease." and It Is
this "ailment" which has to be dealt
with by those who seek to make Canadian immigration effective.
Jones has lived for thirty years in
Manchester and'has a wife and children. He Is fairly well content. Used
to a very simple nnd pinched sort ot
existence. Never dreaming of earning
more than thirty shillings a week at
his trade, To Jones comes tho opportunity to go to Canada. At first his
conservative type of mind refuses to
entertain the Idea of Canada. It Is
something foreign to .him. His nature
shrinks from change of any kind. He
likes, the things Im knows, He Is "no
blooming adventurer."
Ho goes, dually. HO decides to
work on a farm so as to learn farming
methods, then send home for his
"missus" and bring her out to a sort
of paradise where they will raise vegetables and cattle, milk and chickens—
ad Infinitum. The departure is heartbreaking, but once lt is over life takes
on a sudden new Interest to Jones. He
finds that he likes adventure. It
stirs some last remnant of Viking
blood ln his veins to be on board a
ship, sailing into an empty horizon.
He makes friends as he never had
made,'them before. He has cast off
his moorings. He ts cruising ad lib,
You have to put yourself ln Jones's
place to appreciate this feeling. Tt ts
a positive sensation to Jones.
Now If, on this side of tho water,
Jones Is quickly given a place to
work and sleep, and a. setting of faces
which fn time will become friendly, he
Ih in little danger from tho wandering
disease. But It his first attempt at
work Is a failure, and bis second la
or tt o& tht other
hand, his money comes to him with
such comparative ease that he thinks
with each move, he Is going to And
It still easier and easier-then he enters the first stage of the disease. He
wanders from a farm near Toronto,
for example, to Toronto. Tlie tide of a
Harvesters' excursion catches him and
lie readies tlie west. He works with
one man and then with another, He
finds work lie likes, but it Is not permanent. He moves from one place to
another, not a tramp, but a man who
is getting accustomed to moving about.
It is just possible that he forgets to
write home uud so loses his home
ties. One by one he casts oft his so-
elal connections. Home, lie begins to
believe, In popular parlance, is "any
old place I can hang my lint." The
churches   lose  track   of   htm,    The
lodges lose hlni. He even forgets Ills
old trade and forgets, to brag about
the British Hag.
This man is n respectable riorollct.
Not a bad mau, perhaps not even poor
-maybe he makes quite an amount of
money In hts wanderings. Hi* gets In
a laud rush, secures a good place—and
sells It out to a man who really wants
thc laud. Ho roaches a town where
work Is suddenly plentiful aud men
scarce, and he takes advantage of the
special circumstances to make a rale
wandering. Their communities, as a
rule, were the most nearly permanent. They founded real homes ard
stood by them.
Churches, mechanics' institutes,1-,
lodges, schools, und even rinks and
places of amusement huve come to
be looked upon now us part of the
machinery for "anchoring" men and
women to the soil of Canada. The
two factors are named by those who
study the question: one the cultivation of patriotic feeling iu schools
and in churches, and the other, hard
times. A period ot depression will
do more to stop the wandering disease than anything else, according
to western bunk managers, and while
it may for the time being stop Immigration and even cause some tit leave
Canada for other parts. It will In the
end prove to huve been a steadying
ami refining lufluonce,
Ontario, like most or tho eastern
provinces, has had to deal witli the
toss of Immigrants, not to (he 1'iilted
States or to otlier countries, hut to
the west. Its problem lias therefore
been a peculiar one iu one sense, and
yet, like tlie problem of the west in
another sense. It has set about preventing immigrants from getting tlie
■'wandering disease," by seeing to tt
tluit  llie  farm   laborers  whioh  reach
of pay higher than normal
ses through tlie country looking out
for "opportunities." lie Icarus tlie
gentle art of riding the bumpers when
necessary. One day, having accumulated a little ready money, he hears of
big doings tu such and such a quarter.
He boards a freight train and disappears over the American boundary. He
is a potential citizen lost.
The wandering docs not uffect only
single men, or men of small resources. An American immigrant with a
hrewd wife, and perhaps a baby or
two, takes up store-keeping in a new
town. They make just enough money
to keep comfortably alive and then
they sell out the good-will and flit to
another new town, where they repeat
the performance. They get the hublt
of flitting. They lose all sense of identity with the land or community of interest. They urc exploiters. They
wander where they think money Is to
be made. If by accident they are attracted buck again over the American border, tliey do not notice the
difference. They are cosmopolitans,
Tlie prairie. American or Canadian, is
their home. As with them and as with
Jones, so even with established farmers. Tliey sell out their farms, reaping tho increment, unearned or otherwise. They go to another new part
of the country and grow up with It,
again to reap the increment. They
repeat tills time and again. They are
really   not   farmers  at  ail,  but
lie brow-(Ontario are properly placed In tho
rvlce of the farmers. In other
times great dissatisfaction arose trom
the fact that the volunteering laborers
wcre disappointed In the wages offered, or In the conditions of labor, or
the length of contract.
The fanners complicated matters
by keeping men for only part of u
year and throwing them upon tho
general labor market at tho end of
the harvest. Under the bureau of
colonization, Ontario has established
a system by which tho farmer states
on n printed form just what sort of
labor lie wants, wages, conditions,
sort of work, and lcngtii of contract.
Before the intending immigrant
leaves Kngland he Is given a choice
of these positions, und upon his arrival In Toronto is given n card of Introduction to the farmer, while at the
same time the farmer Is twice notified to meet, or to be on the look-out
for the man. If in thc meantime the
tanner has filled the position, he Is
required to inform the bureau under
penalty nr having to pay tiie immigrants expenses from Toronto. Tf he
misrepresents conditions or falls to
carry out his promises, he loses the
good offices of the bureau in obtaining
otlier men for Ills farm.
Meantime an immigrant, arriving at
a farm where he finds he Is not
wanted, or wliere conditions are unsatisfactory, is authorized to telephone or wire, collect, to Uio bureau.
