On the committee were B. E.  Patterson, of the federal land settlement board, Lieut.-Col. Latta, of  the Asia land settlement scheme,  and R. G.L.

Out of courtesy to the federal authorities at.Ottawa, the contents of  the report and recommendations  can not be made known here at  present.  It is  understood, however,   that  the report will point out  considerable obstacles^ the way of   transferring the land  for  use  by   soldiers.  Tbe' Doukhobor   leaders   made   it  plain that they would not consent to  sell their land except in its  entirety  of 4700 acres   and that this   would  require around   half   a million dollars.

The  question may worry the old politicians, but they are not saying very  much at present.

As there can  be be no harm in giving the people  all sides of a public question, we reproduce it- for the benefit of our  readers:  [     "Ottawa, May   6.���������Hon.   Charles  Murphy drew the attention   to   the  government to an open letter  which  had been addressed tc Sir   Thomas  White   by   Prof.   James  Mavor, of  Toronto, which  said   there   was  a  scandalous proceeding now going on  in British Columbia  ostensibly  under   the   auspices of the Dominion  government.    Prof. Mavor said   he  had been given to  understand that  appraisers   were   at   work   in   the  Doukhobor    settlements   at   Grand  Forks, B.C., valuating the lands and  other property in   order   that   they  might be expropriated and  the  ?et  tied   oommuuity   broken up.    The  scheme, be said, was clearly  a   con  spiracy on the part of the land speculators,   local   policians   and   locil  fruitgrowers,   who   were exploiting  the returned soldiers and   proposing  to rob a group of peaceable and   industrious, though    peculiar   people,  of the fruit, of their industry.   "Mr.    Murphy   asked    what  Sir  Thomas had to  say   reegarding   the  matter.  "Sir Thomas White said he had  received a copy of the ietterand the  question of the ownership of the  lands seemed to him to be under  provincial jurisdiction.; However,the  minister of the interior could reply  jv.itri more knowledge, of   the  situa-  Prof. Mavor's Letter  Commenting on Prof. Mavor's  open letter, the Toronto Globe on  5th inst. said:  In connection  with  the proposal  to purchase at forced sale the  lands  of the Doukhobors settlers of British  Columbia for the purpose of turning  it over in grants to returned soldiers.  Prof. James A. Mavor of   the   University of Toronto has addressed an  open letter to Sir Thomas  White, in  which he vigorously protests against  such   action   by  the   government.  Prof. Mavor is recogntzed as one  of  the greatest Canadian authorities on  Russia and the Russian peoples.  Pointing out that following the acceptance of the application of  these  people  for   permission   to settle in  villages in western Canada with exemption from military service, they  were   ejected   from   some   400,000  acres   of   land   which    they    had  brought into a state  of  cultivation.

FRIDAY, MAY 16, 1.91.9  "Easy-to-Grasp" Trade  Facts  OUIl net debt in the Dominion before the  war was three hundred and thirty-six million dollars. Now it is tip beyond one billion  five hundred million dellars, over four and one-  half times as much as in 1914.  Interest charges on the borrowings of the  country before the war amounted to twelve  million dollars annually; today they are seven  times as heavy. There were practically no  pensions to pay. four years ago; today they  .  total over fifteen million dollars a year.  These are only parts of what we have been  called upon to advance for the security of liv-  incr our own lives free alike from Prussianism  and Bolshevism. The Dominion will pay these  charges gladly, though naturally it can not be  done by reverting to what was "normal" prior  to the war, the impelling cause of it all. "Normal" then, translated into terms of todajr,  would be bankruptcy. These are the things  the Canadian trade commission at Ottawa are  earnestly trying to bring home to. every man  and woman, even the children, in the Dominion. They touch the very heart of our home  and private well-being.  During the last twenty years   we   have  advertised the glorious  possibilities of Canada  wherever man can read.    We   wanted   immigrants.   Yet it  was exactly in   the four-year  war period that we were taught that  our development does not need to wait  entirely  on  immigration.    It is well known that the productive capacity of the average man and woman  in   the Dominion   was almost doubled.  We learned the strenuous "art of doing more."  We created more wealth per head of the population by higher standards of efficiency.   The  speculator, the land "booster" and  the gambler in all forms of wealth were eliminated.  We learned to be self-reliant in the Dominion. It was the greatest lesson, perhaps the  greatest benefit, which the war brought us.  This is the quality which we must still further  cultivate, self-reliance in business, in agriculture, in all that which goes to make trade and  to hold it. It can be done permanently in peace  time as it was done for victory: It will be  compulsory, because uo one else will pay our  debts.  The wagoner in ittsop who prayed to Hercules had his own strength revealed to him  when he was Made to put his shoulder to the  wheel. We are past the praying time in  Canada.  There is no need for discouragement. The  transition from war to peace is more complex  than was thought. Yet the wealth of Canada  remains today what we have always said it  was���������tremendous in its possibilities. In fact,  the total developed value is probably about  $20,000,000,000. The thing to do is to develop  it still more. With an annual income which  in 191.8 was estimated at $2,500,000,000, there  should be plenty of margin in our receipts for  re-investing in national business for its expan-  manufactureing. We could make or produce  .within our own frontier many things we import and so keep here the money we have, We  could export many more things if we organized our medium-sized and smaller trades into  groups, and so we could help to pay our debts  with -money brought in from outside.  These then are the broad, easy-to-grasp facts  of the trade position in Canada. It does not  want magic to bring about the change desired.  Common sense���������in a rare degree���������is wanted,  though. The key will be found in continuance  of the cooperative and patriotic spirit that we  proved ourselves to possess during the war.  If bloated indolence were fame,  And pompous ease our noblest aim,  The orb that regulates the day  Would ne'er from Aries' mansion stray.  Last week's issue of our local contemporary  was a disappointment to us. We had expected  see some light shed on a couple of subjects in  which we and our readers are interested.   In-  etead, .the paper confined itself to a  general  tirade against''knockers" and "knockers," that  may  have applied  either to some one in this  neighborhood or to a man in Timbucto.    This  is. the  gossamer  shield   behind   which every  crossroads scribbler who imagines that the,acquisition   of a few slang words and phrases  entitles him to occupy an editorial Chair takes  refuge when driven to the last ditch. It'is the  protection   sought by the get-rich-quick milk  burglars who rob babies of their food by selling worthless stock to women   and   children;  behind   this   flimsy  shield  the men  who rob  working   men   and   working   women of their  'hard earned   money   by   peddling   "wildcat''  mining stock live in  luxury, and  idleness;  it  is the shelter  under which fraudulent promoters, public grafters and smooth   fakers operate.    To expose these parasites on society  is  the legitimate function of' the newspaper.   It  is, in fact, its duty, and  The   Sun   has   never  shrunk from the performance of this duty.   In  doing so we have, of course,   made  enemies.  But we are proud of onr record in this partic-  u'ar  field   of our, activities.   Some of those  whom  we  have   had occasion to attack have  since served time, while othc-s  are  fugitives  from justice.    This does not  look   much like  "knocking" (whatever the  word  may mean).  It  nrght  be  added that  it  is impossible to  "knock" a legitimate  enterprise.    To  attack  it only advertises it.   Proof of this  assertion  is not lacking.    If The Sun had  a penny for  every time it has been "knocked" the proprietor would nowbe a millionaire.  f:  z:%  es o  es  fulfilled their mission when vision was improved.
