VICTORIA—What is easily the mosl
important bill In respect to land leg
[station advanced in recent years was
1 resulted iu the house by  Hon,  W, it.
ROBS,   Minister  of   Lands,   today.   The
measure, which wlll be called The
Soldiers'    Homestead A.ct, will bring
I aek,      under  the   Crown,   lietwe, n   _,
000,000 and :'.,' 00,000 acres ol agrlcul
tural land which has been sold by
the government, but which has uot
been paid for, and the huge area BO
realeased for settlement wilL be given
free to returned eoldlora wlthoul the
present restrictions surrounding preemptions. The military pre emptors
will also be given assistance In the
way      of  loans  from   a  fund   provided
by the sale of government lands.
Premier Bowser stated that Bome
2,000,000' acres of land would he
brought buck to the crown by the
Lands applied for hy intending purchasers, but so far unpaid for, he
said, were 2,7'OO,C,-0 acres in extent,
of which 700,000 would in all probab
ility be taken up. Closely allied to
this proposed act is another bill called thc "Pre-emptors Free Grants
■\ct," which will give pre-emptora
who enlist, or have enlisted for service, full title to their pre-emptions
without payment of any kind, and
without the neceSBlt) of observing
present requirements in respect to occupation and Improvements. Application must, however, he made for a
trown grunt within one year of the
conclusion of the war.
The soldiers' homestead i't will, in
the opinion of ministers, solve many
problems confronting the province at
present. It will, they say. relieve tbe
present Impasse resulting from millions of acres being temporarily prevented from settlement; It will [iro-
vide sufficient land for the soldiers
on their return from the front, and
it will provide funds for the assist
ance of military farmers intendlcg to
go back to tbc land, as well as money for tbe purposes of the agricultural credits commission.
Those able to tuke advantage of
the provisions of the act will include
returned soldiers ol tbe Canad.a:.,
Imperial or Colonial forces, women
and miuois who havc enlisted in any
branches of these services, or widows
of soldiers who, if liwng, would he

Unless certain speciiied conditions
are complied with every existing application for purchase of crown lauds
not heretofore completed hy payment
in full of the purchase price ib abrogated and cancelled by tht act. All
tbe lands so applied for ure once
.i.ore vested lm tbc crown.
Thc condition upon which the applicant for purchase may retain his
right is tbat he shall, within six
months of the passage ,.t the act,
complete payment in lull, togethel
with accrued interest. Exception is
made in tbe cuse of anj person who
bas already entered upon and worked
a  section of land  and constructed SUt-
iicient Improvements to turn the pro
perty   into  Improved  rather  than wild
land.   The    act    gives such a person
thc privilege of completing bis title
by complying with the provisions and
terms of the application t.. purchase.
Although the act when II M
e,i wiii deprive speculati rs and others
of land 'or which ti..y have not paid,
it docs not contemplate thc  confisca
tion of his property,   By paying    in
full  the rate of interest,  owing   on the
purchase    price  of the land, he may
withiu      six   months,   select  from  the
area of his original purchase, a block

Each returned s.ddici ohall bc entitled to a pre-emption of 160 acres

German securities are at a discount

How They Cure
Plessisville, _}vk.
"I suffered from Kidney Trouble for
several years, and tried numerous remedies
and doctors' prescriptions without permanent
relief, my case being* chronic. After seeing
ahout Gin Pills, and as it is a well known
fat t that Juniper, without ulcohol, is excellent
for the Kidneys, I decided to try Gin Pills.
One single pill gave me great relief. I have
now taken four boxes of Gin Pills and find
myself completely cured. No more bad
humor- increase in weight —cleareyes—fresh
color—more strength and vigor. This is
what Gin Pills have done for me."

Some   interesting recommendations
with regard to mining were made by
Mr.  L, W. Shatford, member for Bint-
ilkamecii,     in     his speech on the Address.     Mr.  Shatford declared     that
the   province     was on the eve of an
era    of a great mineral development,
and capital  waB only awaiting a favorable   opportunity to enter.   If   the
jirovince's   resources    in  mining  were
to     be     fully developed however, the
I people     themselves would make     the
firat     move.   Mr.  Shatford BUggeBted
the adoption ol some measure to stim
ulate    prospecting  and  introduce      a
better system for tabulating the    results of investigations made  by  government engineers and geologists. He
thought     also     that the government
' should  consider  tbe  advisability      oi
making     loans     to prospectors after
! favourable reports, in order to enable
them to open up tbeir claims. He recommended further thc installation of
' government    owned assays, at  which
free,    or at least cheap, assays could
' be made for prospectors and bonafide
free   miners.   He  thought great good
Could  be  accomplished  it  the  government could issue with eacb  tree miners    license a book of coupons, which
I would     entitle the holder to twenty-
three assays during the year, and at
the same tine to make provision   to
give the bonafide prospector a further
amount of assays per nominal charge
Mr.    Shatford urged that the province bc divided into mineral districts
to  he placed  under the direction     of
competent  engineers. These   engineers
could    report on all mining property-
brought    to their attention aril such

Serious losses to crops of many
kinds occurr every year from thc ravages of injurious cutworms in tbe
prairie provinces ol Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta. For a number of years the Entomological'
branch of tbe department of agriculture has investigated outbreaks of
theBe very destructive caterpillars,
and as a result ill several seasons of
work on their life-history and control, Circular No. li, entitled '"Tho
Control of Cutworms iii tho Prairie
Provinces" Iuib been prepared by Mr.
_, G. Strickland, Field ollicer in
charge of the Entomological Laboratory, Lethbrldge, Alta. The red backed cutworm and thc Palo western
cutworm are tbe two most do .uc-
tive species with which the farmers
in the jirairie provinces havc to contend. The latter species in 1912 destroyed upwards of 85,000 acres of
grain in Southern Alberta. The general life history and habits of these insects are discussed and important Information on their control given.
Farmers in the prairie provinces lor
whom this circular has been specially
prepared should become thoroughly
familiar With it before spring, in or
der that tbey may know the means to
adopt to protect their crops from the
ravages of cutworms. Application for
the circular should be made to the
Chief of the Publications Branch, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa. Enquiries regarding cutwormB in general or other insect pests should be addressed to the Dominion Entomologist, Department of Agriculture, Ottawa. In cases of emergency farmers
in the prairie provinces may communicate with either of thc lollowing field
oflicers: Mr. E. H. Strickland, Dominion Entomological Laboratory, of
