Interior Revenues From Land
Reached the Highest Mark
Last Year
During Past Hve Years Homesteaders Have Arrived by
Since the Liberals assumed control
of affairs immigration has increased ten
times per annum over what it was iu
the last year of Conservative rule.
The   revenue   from  this source in
cash   in 1895-96  was   $171,509 38.
For the past five years it has been  as

Both the Newby and the Johnson Ranch to Cut Up Into
Small Holdings
It is always interesting to observe
what progress is being made in the
land of one's adoption. Advances
made in the arts and sciences, while
evidence of a country's prosperity, do
no not appeal to the average mind, as
do figures of population and revenue,
Therefore, it may be of interest to
* ponder over a few figures supplied
'■from the operations of the department
of the interior, so efficiently and honestly presided over by the Hon. Frank
Of all the great departments, the
interior touches the life of the people
' closer, probably, than any other
, This branch of government includes
the public lands department, immigration, homesteads antl kindred subjects.
If immigrants arrive in great numbers from year to year—if the home
steads in the great west are being absorbed in proportion to these arrivals
—if fie revenues from Dominion lands
be ever on the increase—there can be
but one comment fitting to the subject, and that must be lhat the department is administered by a competent head, and that the conntry is
making great strides in national
In 1895 96, the last year the Conservative government was in power,
there were taken up in Canada 2462
homesteads. This was the result
achieved by a Conservative government as the fruits of its so-called immigration propaganda.
Going back just five years in the
history of Canada from the present
time, what are the faots with respect
to the taking up of homesteads? The
following table tells its own story,
and the figures are official:
Homestead entries—
1901-02  14,673
1902-03  31,383
1903-04   26,073
1904-05  30,819
190505   41,869
Total for last five years... 144,817
This is practical evidence of the
working of the department. Results
sucli as these figures disclose must supply any argument that may bo made
touching this question.
Inseparably associated with the
question of homesteads is that of the
arrival of immigrants.
In- 1896 there arrived in Canada
21,716 immigrants. This was the best
a Conservative policy accomplished.
The next five years, under a Liberal
government, saw immigration stimulated to a marked degree. Each year
the arrivals increased until 190001,
when they numbered 49,149. During the past five years these figures
have been left far behind, as the following will show:
Arrivals of immigrants—
1901-02  67,379
1902-03 128,364
1903-04 130,331
1904-05 146,266
1905-06 189,064
Total for five years...^7,465,103.20
The revenue has increased from Dominion lands alone from $174,509 in
1896 to 81,701,580 in 1906.
The total revenues from Dominion
lands for ten years from 1886-87 to
1895-96 was 82,343,835.95.
The total revenues from Dominion
lands for ten years from 1896-97 to
1905-06 was $13,139,941.78.
The total revenue of the interior
department in 1896, under Conservative rule, was $244,431; last year
under Liberal rule the total revenues
of this department were $2,526,123—
a growth so marvelous that the figures
alone are sufficiently eloquent to reflect the prosperous condition of this
branch of the public Bervice.
The immense work entailed in the
offices of this department may be
conjectured when Sit is known that in
1896 the total number of letters received and sent amounted to 91,7! 9
for that year. Last year, 1906, there
were sent and recei ,'ed at the department no less than 937,259 letters.
Tho added wealth of the country
during the past five years is well exemplified in the growth of population
in western towns and cities for that
perion.   Examine the following:
1901 1906
Brandon  5,283       10,520
Calgary  4,152       17,5(10
Edmonton  2,626       11,000
Indian Head      768 2,100
Medioin-* Hat   1,973        3,500
Moosejaw  2,042 6,9*0
Portage la Prairie.. 3,850 5,500
Prince Albert  2,193 5,600
Raymond  7 2,000
Red Deer       861 2,000
Regina  2,645.       9,400
Saskatoon          0 3>Qm
Strathcona  .... 1,550 3,400
Winnipeg 43,340     101,000
These figures are only approximate
today, for some oi theso centres of
population are growing so rapidly
that many thousands may be added
in some cases to make the figures correct at the present time. A few settlers today means a village in a few
weeks, and in a few months aprospei-
ous town has sprung into active, aggressive life.
Under the new coal lands regulations, an applicant for a lease is I tinted to a curtain acreage, and he is
bound to sell coal at a reasonably low
fixed rate at the pit's mouth to tl e
settlor, and pay a small loyalty per
ton to the government. No person will
be ullowed to hold coal lands in idle
ness—thov must be worked, or the
lease is susceptible to be cancelled by
the minister. This is in marked contrast to the methods employed by the
Conservatives, which permitted vast
areas to pa-is into the hands of fav
ored political friends.
It is somewhat amusing to read the
effusions emanating from Conservative eoui ces with respect to the Rot s
rifle, the arm which has lately bet n
adopted by the government, and for
the manufacture of which a largo industry has grown up in Canada.
This   particular weapon  has  been
subjected   to   a very severe criticism.

THE 20,000 CLUB
The first payment has been made
on the Newby ranch, the sale of
which was reported in The Sun a
couple of weeks ago, the purchasers
being Neil McCallum and James
McArdle. The ranch is situated
just outside the oity*limits, and consists of 600 acres. It was located in
1899 by Thomas Capsey, who shortly there itter sold it to James Newby.
For namy years it was leased to
James Floyd, who operated it as a
dairy farm. The new owners intend to plant about 100 acres into
fruit trees, and to subdivide the balance into ten-acre tracts. These
will be placed on the market this
Tbe sale of the Johnson ranch,
which was reported as having been
made the latter part of last week,
has been confirmed. This property,
consisting of 1300 acres, is situated
a short distance east of the city and
is owned by the Erb estate and the
Misses Davey of Victoria. The
purchaser is W. J. Brown, of Toronto, antl the consideration is said
to have been in the neighborhood of
$60,000. It is the intention of the
new owner to subdivide the property
and to install an irrigating system in the near future. The ranch
Wns located in 1882 by James McConnell, anil comprises some of the
hest land in the valley. Part o it
is leased to the Riverside Nurseries,
and the C.P.R. runs through the
James and W. T. Hunter, who
held a chattel mortgage for $2500 on
Robert Clark'B ranch, north of the
city, foreclosed the same last week,
and transferrin! the properly to Jess
Fisher nnd Ralph Hodgson, employees of their store. The consideration is said to have been about
$3000. The ranch consists of 350
acres, and Mr. Clark states that it
is worth fully 812,000.
The Oddfellows will hold memorial services Ht their hall nt 4 p in.
next Sunday, and then march lo

The K. of P. lodge will hold similar
8 rvices on the following Sunday.
The gentleman who dropped a
nickel in-the-slot-machine slug on
the plate lust Sunday night should

Preparations nre now under way
at the Granby company's Gold Drop
mine, near Phoenix, to largely increase the output of that property.
Attention is called to the public
auction sale of merchandise on the
third page of this issue of The Sun.
A novel feature of this sulo is  that 5
J. B. Henderson, who is superintending the erection of several buildings for the West Kootenay Power

last Sunday.
What wns probably the lrirgest
single blast ever fired in the Boundary was set off near Phoenix on
Saturday last by Contrnctor Tierney
on the new C.P.R. spur to the Rawhide mine. About 300 pounds of
black powder and 250 pounds of
dynnmite were used, londed into n
lnrge number of deeply chambered
holes. When fired, the blast appeared a lift a small mountain of
rock several hundred feet into the
air, which in falling covered the
main C.P.R. track six or eight feet
deep with rock for a considerable
distance, and by breaking both electric power lines put two smelters out
of business for n couple of hours.

Plan to Make a  Display of
City and Valley Scenes at
Fall Fairs
Decisive Action Will Be Taken
on the Matter Next Tuesday Evening
The meeting of the 20,000 club
Wednesday evening was not very
largely attended, doubtless owing to
the stormy weather prevailing.
Mr. Spier reported that tbe Dur-
land lecture and entertainment had
been a success.
The advertising committee advocated the scheme of having enlarged
photos made of all the prominent
fruit ranches in the valley, and
placeB of interest in the city, and to
make a display of them at the Winnipeg and Nelson fairs. This matter
was discussed for Borne time, but it
was finally decided to defer final action until next Tuesday evening,
when another meeting will be held,
and it is hoped a more representative
attendance will be present.

J. Hill, of the Great Ncrthern, in reply to the club's resolution urging the
Great Northern company to establish a divisional point here, was

Don't Use Greasy Liniments
A century ago they were popular.
Today people want something easy to
apply, certain in results, and above all
a clean liniment. When Nerviline is
applied aches antl pains disappear as
the pores absorb its soothing healing
properties. Nerviline penetrates to the
core of the pain, eases instantly, and
leaves no oily bad smelling memory
behind. Good to take in, capital to
rub on, and five times more powerful
in destroying pain than any other
liniment. Don't fail to get a large 25c
bottle. '

Matters affecting it were even carried
hefore the public accounts' committee,
and there voluminous evidence was
submitted, but nothing reflecting upon the department of militia and defence was disclosed. The minister of
militia and a number of officers and
others gave evidence as to the financial dealings between the company and
the government, and nothing questionable was proved.
On the merits of the rifle there was
much expert testimony, and nothing
derogatory to the arm was proved.
One of the most enthusiastic supporters of the Ross rille was Col. Sam
Hughes, Conservative M. P. for Victoria. Col. Hughes is a practical man
and took an active part in tho proceedings when the value of the rifle
was discussed, both before the public
accounts' committee ond in the house.
He alleged that no accident had happened as the result of breakage or defective workmanship. From the first
introduction of this weapon it has had
no more ardent supporter than Col.
.Sam Hughes.
The establishment of experimental
farms was a step in the right direction. The Liberal government has
given close attention to matters affecting the agricutural class, and the department of agriculture, under the
able management of Hon. Sidney
Fisher, does much each year to improve the character of the crops, the
health of the herds, and the quantity
and quality of farm produce of every
A system of distributing samples
of seed grain for the improvement of
seed among a large number of farmers
who have applied for same, from the
several experimental farms, has been
greatly appreciated and has led to
good results. The department is always pleased to receive communications of this character, and they invariably receive courteous treatment.
During the last fiscal year more than
45,000 farmers were supplied with
such samples from the experimental
farms. Good seed is thus placed at
many different points, and the best
and most productive sorts are rapidly
spread over the whole cuuntry.
The government breeds at the experimental farms small herds of Shorthorn, Ayrshire, Guernsey and Canadian cattle. They are studied as to comparative and positive economy of milk
and butter production which show
them adapted or otherwise for the
general use of the Canadian farmer.
Steer feeding operations have also
been carried on. The questions now
being studied are: 1. The intlueuce of
breeding on the cost of production and
value of the finished product. 2. The
influence of age on the cost of production. The experiments have deni-
ontrated that the earlier the age at
which steers may be got ready for the
market, the greater the chance of
making a good profit; whereas steers
kept for some years usually show a
loss, if all items of cost are considered.
Two small Hocks of sheep are kept,
antl the success met with should justify farmers going into this branch of
the stuck business,
In all classes of animals, the surplus stock, when of first-class quality
nntl breeding, is sold to fanners for
breeding purposes.
The  agricultural   department  ex
tends   its   operations  over the whole
Dominion, improving the   growth   of
cereals   and   crops   by the giving of
seetls and circulation of useful data.
The Conservative party nnd press
appear indifferent to the state of public affairs. There is too much contentment, too much business being transacted, too much prosperity throughout
the land, and their occupation is gone.
Last session many matters of trifling interest wero forced upon the attention of the house, and the party
press eagerly seized upon them, and
day in and day out the same round of
abuse of trifling things was engaged
in, but little or nothing was said of
the great public enterprises being conducted by the government.
A man who overcharged for a few
dozen of ginger ale supplied to a boat,
and exacted pay fur his bottles, was
hauled before the public accounts
committee and the whole transaction
revealed to the light of day. But
when the government, by the alertness
of its officer, detected an error of
$160,000 and prevented its payment,
nothing is said about it. A dealer who
sold an engine for a few dollars more
than it might have been purchased
from another party, explained the
transaction at great length, at the
country's expense, at tho instigatitn
of the Conservative economists; but
these same men voted nearly $30,-
000,000 of the people's money for the
building of the Grand Trunk Pacific
practically without comment: they
were content to believe that the government would act honestly with the
It might have been expected that
the country would be in a turmoil
with allegations and proofs of giafting
and wrong-doing, but strange to say
the valiant members who hurled general denunciation in the house,
where all statements are privileged,
have nothing to say now that
they must perforce speak out
in public meeting withjjthe chi no
of encountering some individual who
requires more than blatant vitupera
tion before withdrawing confidence
from the best and most aggressive
government Canada ever had.
One seeks in vain for a defined
policy for which the people are asked
to substitute the present one followed
by the Liberal government. The Conservative party appears to be made up
of units, each following a separate and
distinct course. Upon no two questions are they unanimous, unless it be
that they are all anxious for the overthrow of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the
resulting advantage that might accrue
to some of them.
The leading papers supporting the
Conservative party are not even agreed
upon matters of indifferent importance, and it seems an impossibility
to reconcile the various differences of
opinion on political matters as they
affect the party. Since the house rose,
there has been a continual rehash of
matters brought up during the last
session, but for some reason the
very full and satisfactory explanation
given of these things at the time seems
to have been entirely overlooked. If
the Conservative papeis would print
both sitles of a story and let the people jupge, the Liberal party would be
content to abide by the decision, but
no man can arrive at an intelligent
conclusion when a garbled and prejudiced account of one side only is given.
The people of Canada lire not easily
led, but they are competent to form
an opinion on a matter of political
significance affecting the government
of the country. No mere wild and
improbable allegation without any
evidence in support of it has any effect
on the electors of Canada. When allegations were made in the house as to
Mr. Foster's connection with trust
funds, they were backed up by his
own evidence given under oath before
the royal commission on insurance.
This is the character of evidence that
impresses tho mind of the average
nmn, not the vaporings of a journal
ambitious to enjoy patronage, or the
unreasoning assertions of a disgruntled
Throughout the country advice", are
that the public buildings for which
parliament voted nionoy are proceeding rapidly towards completion. The
public interest requires that certain
accommodation bo provided and the
government is wisely spending a proportion of the public money in this direction.
Tho addition to the parliament
building at Ottawa is being proceeded
with rapidly.  The stonemasons' strike
retarded the work somewhat, but now
all differences have been adjusted, and
the stone and brickwork is nearly up
to the first story. This addition is to
provide fuither accommodation for the
members of parliament, officials of the
house aud tho press, and it is expected
that the roof will be on this fall, although the work will not be complete! I for two years to come.
The late spring has not been without effect upon the business and
commercial interests of the Dominion,
but from all directions tho testimony
is tho same, that the good times enjoyed for many years past may be
confidently anticipated during the
coming season. The people are satis
Bed with their prospects, well pleased
with the government, antl proud of
their countrv.
