Influential British Company to Assist
Settlers and Promote Colonization
The Vermilion district in central Alberta Is this summer the scene of a
remarkable and most promising development iii land'settlement. The
undertaking referred to Is that of the
British Dominions Land Settlement
Corporation Limited, a powerful financial organization formed in London,
England, for the express purpose, as
its name implies, of promoting land
colonization in the Overseas British
Dominions and particularly in this
Dominion of Canada. This company
represents a new departure in the way
of.assisting agricultural families of
small means who desire to establish
themselves on the soil. Backed by
��millions of Old Country money, it provides 'the right kind of farmers with
land on easy terms "and aids them, in
equipping these farms and'getting
thoroughly established thereon.
Tho high character of the company
is Indicated by the personnel of its
British directorate,   which   includes:
The  Duke  of Sutherland,  chairman;
the   Right   Hon. Sir New-ton Moore.
K.C.M.G., formerly prime minister of
western Australia; the Right Hon. Sir
Arthur Griffith   Boseawen,    formerly
minister of agriculture in the British
cabinet; Sir Edward llanville, chair--
man/of the great Daimler Motor Car
organization; Sir Robert Lynn,.M.P.;
CPI7A...G.  Cousins,  O.B.E.;.;and  Mr.
Meryyn'.  Brown.'. .These    names'- in
themselves,.furnish a guarantee of the"
standing of an organization which has
for-its'object the use-of British, capital

"vacant spaces of the empire���an ideal
wh.ch-7h.is7 seized, "the mind":of ;the
-British' people.' especially  during, the',
years .'.which .have- "succeedefl the. war.
In the United Kingdom it-is more than'
ever recognized-that "the-future "ofythc-
Mothei- .Country lies" in the growth of
the.outlying parts of. the empire.   The
Canadian board of the corporation is'
'constituted  as"   follows: . Mr; jr.__er.yy_i
Brown, chairman; Mr." Robert. McKay,
of .Allan", "-Kiliani & McKay, Winnipeg;,

the'corporation advancesf to settler's",-

For the money thus'/advanced' the corporation.-.take*- .back* a five'-.year chat
tered sections, half-sections and quarter-sections lying between tlio Vermilion and Saskatchewan Rivers with
ihe town of Vermilion as the chief distributing point. The rest of tlie company's holdings Ho west and north of
Edmonton. Driving north from Vermilion through the main cast block,
one encounters a series of rolling l\ills
and valleys, the hills green with verdure and dotted with darker green
clumps of trees and brushwood. The
landscape is interspersed with small
lakes and Is lhus_i.n exceptionally attractive one. The prcyailing soil is
a black loam with a clay sub-soil.
The area is served on the south and
north by two lines of the Canadian
National Railways. As a result of
the influx of settlers the Canadian National Railways is extending its St.
Paul de Metis branch across tho northern part of tho company's property,
and the Canadian Pacific Railway is
extending its Lloydminster branch towards the w-3st of the company's lands.

On his return from his seventh expedition to Brazilion jungles, he told
about finding the Indians at the headwaters of the Parma River, 75 miles
distant from the headwaters of the

explorers-as being undeniably white.

Peculiar mistakes in London's statues have been commented upon in a
recent magazine article-which notes
the following facts: "The   statue   of
the~Duke of Wellington at the Royal
Exchange has neither spurs nor stirrups.     Gladstone, in tlie house, has
a seam from one trouser leg, an oversight which'flouts the best.traditions
of Saville Row.      Cromwell, outside
the House of Commons   is   wearing
spurs upside down."     And also asks:
What  Is   the  archer  decorating  the
west side of the new County Hall doing with his bow in the wrong hand?
Why does the soldier in the Avar memorial outside the Royal Exchange perpetually offend peace regulations by
standing at ease with his hands covering the top of his rifle barrel? Why
does the Prince Consort in Holborn
Circus,   raise   his   hat in salute?���a
thing no self-respecting field marshal
ever did."

Vancouver Welcomes
Earl Haig
Great British Leader Pleads For Unity
and Fellowship
Vancouver.���Unity of effort for the
re-establishment of returned soldiers
in all parts of the British Empire, was
advocated By delegates representing
india, Australia, New Zealand, Rhodesia, north and south Ireland, and
Great Britain at a dinner given here
hy a local reception committee to the
members of Earl Halg's party, who
attended the recent meeting in Ottawa
of tho Empire Service League and
who came to the coast with the field
The speakers included Brig.-Gen.
IT. F, McDonald, Brig.-Gen. James
Wylie, of South Africa; Senator
James Cornell, of Australia, and
The great British leader, in plain
language . and with modest demeanor, with a manner that left no
doubt as to his sincerity of purpose, exhorted all ex-service men to
unite under the one banner in friend?-
ship, unity and purpose, a purpose
that would make for the British Empire and th._ ushering in of world
peace. ���
"In the interests of liberty, justice
and good fellowship and peace. I
hope it will not he long before Canadian ex-service men will be united,"
declared Earl Haig, in his closing sentence amid applause- that swept
through the great building.
London.���Recent efforts in .tlie
House of Commons to induce the government to reveal its naval building
programme were repeated, but without success, in debate on the naval estimates. It. is generally understood
that there has been a sharp eonllict
between ^Vinston Churchill, chancellor of the1 exchequer, who desires to
keep the estimates down, and the admiralty, which wants a cruiser-building programme extending over a period of years.    0 -
Apparently divided' counsels prevail in the cabinet, which lias not yet
reached a unanimous decision, although it is rumored that Mr. Churchill
has consented to the laying down of
five new cruisers this year.
The subject was discussed iu the
house from all angles, with much
advocacy of another disarmament
conference. \V. C. Bridgeman, first:
lord of the admiralty, could only repeat Premier Baldwin's previous
promise to make a statement on the
question, about a week hence.
