Immigration,   vv ork and Prosperity
Notwithstanding that ono of Canada's greatest needs ls a larger population, tlio amazing; tact, is thai, whenever immigration shows a substantial increase, aud it becomes apparent that tho lido of settlement Is setting 'in
strongly Canada-wards, an outcry is.-raised in Labor circles and influences
aro brought to bear lo discourage immigration. Nor is organized labor alone
in voicing objections and offering opposition.-Frequently church bodies, find
sometimes national societies, adopt the samo attitude.
-This opposition to Immigration some-times finds expression in an attempt
io induce the Government and other agencies interested in Immigration to
discontinue, or greatly curtail, thoir efforts to induce immigration to Canada.
AL other (lines it Is,revealed by a campaign of tho most mischievous, luis-
leadltig and, not infrequently, absolutely false statements regarding Canadian
conditions, a most unpatriotic proceeding.
Most of. this opposition is the result, of iguorance or Lho acceptance ot
half-baked theories' on tlio pari of those who. socle to prevent or restrict immigration. Some people object, to anybody being allowed to enter Canada unless they, speak the same language, dress in the same fashion, anil worship
���at the same altar as thev themselves do. Those timid souls are fearful -that
they niay.be swamped," arid they insist ou Canada being regarded) as :i) special
preserve for .'themselves set askht iu the world by an all-wise Providence with
"No admittance" signs against peoplo from other lands. They refuse to
recognize fhe fact that all the" great national groups of today, including the
British, are the result of a fusion, an assimilation, of races.'
Organized labor, on the other baud, opposes immigration because, a
'majority of Labor Union members entertain the mis taken*, idea that by maintaining u. scarcity of labor, thc opportunities for employment of those already
in the country are cuhanced, and Iliac higher wages; will likewise prevail. The
economic and industrial history of the world proves otherwise.       ���"���'���'*���."
A Melbourne, Australia,, man writing in the London Dally Mail declares
that progress and development in Australia are both being-stifled'and held
back by the excessive cost, of labor. One of the crying needs of Australia.. to
bring about permanent prosperity is the enrryiug out of irrigation schemes,
on a huge scale. The recent drought has once again* emphasized-.* the old
lesson, and it is known that under the benign skies of Australia simple
���methods of irrigation like those practised by the peasants of Lombardy
would produco-iastonishing results. -But the problem, of Australian irrigation
is said to be like a,.hundred other problems Ihoro. It is easy to point .out
what might be douo and what should be done, but much more difficult to got
it.done. The high cost of labor makes it impossible. As 8. result the' farmer
aud his family struggles along as best they can with rude skill and appliances,
but with low efficiency, postponed improvements, and backwardness of agricultural development. /-'     '���'������.*���.
Tho .Labor Unionist looks on immigration as threatening' his employment and as a menace to the established standard of wages. He refuses to see
that a still greater menace lies in' the retarded .development, of his country,
but which development would bring increased employment and good, wages
/Or all. He overlooks the fact that immigration, upon a scale which Australia
will almost certainly:*;never experience, bail little, or no effect"upon the standard of employment and wages in the United States; rather did it maintain
that standard by incessant, expansion. The one thing to keep up, or augment,
wages in Australia, or in Canada for that ma Iter, would be great area of
development. Compared with what it might be the rate of present
development is slow."'"
The most prosperous period in Canada in the'experience of the present
gencratlou-was. during.those years following the introduction of an aggressive
immigration policy under Clifford Sifton, and when immigrants were pouring
' Into the country. Following the depression of the afttn'-the-war years Canada
is once again experiencing bettor times and au increasing measure of indus-
W'ial activity and prosperity, with-employment plentiful and wages'good, and
at, the same time .immigration is heavier than at any time since the outbreak of the war, with an increase of G8 per cent over last year.   .-
Aud because of this increase immigration, onca again the cry is raised to
put a stop to it. Canadians as a whole are asked by one section of the population, and for purely selfish and utterly mistaken reasons', to kill the goose
that is laying the golden eggs for the. Dominion of the present day, while at
the same time being productive of a .greater'development and more prosperous future. .-���'*���. ,: ' . . .." '*���������*-.���

A young man who was brought up oa
a farm in Western Pennsylvania studied

money to.put him thru medical college.
After thc Civil War, he began thc practica
of medicine in the new oil section of Pa.,
and often rode horse-back thru thc woods
to reach and relieve those who were seriously ill. Hc was a student of nature,
knew and could easily recognize most of
the medicinal plants growing in the woods.
Later, he moved to Buffalo,N.Y. when
he launched hiti favorite remedies, and, ia
a short time, they were sold by every druggist in the land. Today, the name of tins'
man, Dr. R. V. Pierce, is known throughout the world. His Golden Medical Dis-

Carpet Worth Half Million
Took Twenty-four Years to Make and
is 400.Years Old
A magic carpet nearly -100 years
old and valued at over J500.000 held an
almost reverential little group awestruck at a carper, dealer's premises In
Holborn recently.
At firs; sight!('scented to .consist of
a jumble officii colors.- Slowly, however, tho design became apparent and
the eye revelled in the wondo'rfully
rich lines of ruby, emerald green, ^nd
- Tho romantic history of tho carpet
was unfolded, by ."fann,-.. 1<\ Ballard, a
rich American, whoso hobby i'orjwon-
ty years has been the collecting of rare
and beautiful carpels.
"Tills carpel," ho said, "was made al
Ispahan in 1550, in the reign of Shah
Salt.. It was presented by 'the Shah
to Peter the Great, who in turn presented il. to Leopold I. of Russia.

Mountain Clock Always Right
Old   Scotch   Shepherd   Can' Rely, on
Faithful Timepiece
.The most wonderful "clock" in the
world is to be found in bonnie Scotland in a. lonely glen among the hills
bordering Loch Lomond. - It never goes
wrong for it has" nd works, and It
never requires ,y;infling. It is the
faithful time-piece of an old shepherd, who has been telling the time
with amazing accuracy half a century'
by observing the shadows cast by tho
sun -on the neighboring -mountain
f The old man was asked to give the
time' by his prehistoric time-piece,
raised his crook-handled stick'slowly,
and- pointed to a thin screak of shadow
on the hillside. , "Well, when the sun
strikes that it's 3 o'clock in the afternoon as near as matters."
Ho paused .and gazed lu the direction of the loug shadow. "Th' shadow
is a quarter the way from yon petfk
there," hc'explained, pointing with his
stick to a neighboring ridge. "So I
should say it's jusr. aboot 15 miutes
past 3 o'clock, as near as matters���as
'neai'^s^niatfe'fs^tac^ulyser.'' = "
The old shepherd was only a few
minutes out according lo railway time.
An incongruous, thing ln. the centuries-old coltage where the shepherd
and his wife still tell the time by the
sun is a wireless set. The old couple
noticed the .amazement of'a visitor.
"Aye, I got that from a man I rescued awa' up there in yon mountains,"
said"'the shepherd. "He was lost, so I
brought him along here tae my wee
cottage, ��� and. snad-a him comfortable
for th' night. He was awfu' pleased,
an' wheuJhe went awa' home he sent
me this wireless set."

Fred Smyth and .
Cranbrook Ed.
Fred J. Smyth, at one time ou tlie
staff of the Phoenix Pioneer during
the 'prosperious days-oi that city; interviewed Cranbrook Ed at Standpoint,
Idaho, .on his way south. It is not
likely that Fred came in contact with
anything- so interesting when he used
to take his Sunday jaunt from Phoenix to Greenwood.  '    ������*- , .
The interview as it appeared in the
Cranbrook Courier follows:-; Fred. J.
Smyth, formerly editor of the. Moyie
Leader, when that city was in a flourishing condition, and who was famous
for his red vests and neckties, similar
to the brand worn by Mayor Taylor of
Vancouver, strolled over to the Spokane International station last evening
and interviewed "Cranbrook Ed" in
his private-car,-en route to California
after spending his holidays in and
around ���"Beiutiful Cranbrook." The
elephant was 'munching hay, and between copious moiithfiils his very
gesture seemed to imply that he had
been right royally treated. "As near
as I can read the mind of an elephant,
���his message, to me .was this, writes Mr.
Smyth: "If California has .anything
on Cranbrook it sure has got to go
"But why did you select Cranbrook
as a place for deserting the "big top?"
I asked.
."Well, you see it was just';this way;
coming west, all* we heard was Cranbrook, and the 'banana belt,' and we
couldn't resist, the temptation to take-a
bananas, but tlie jungles around Cranbrook sure have those of the Euphrates or the Punjab beaten a city block.'
"But your escapades has cost the
S'ells-Floto circus"-a lot of money," I
"It certainly,has that," he shot back,
as he flapped his ear and drove away a
pestering fly. "Why tins-trip alone
runs into many thousands of dollars,
and would you believe it, with all the
extra room in this car, the. C.P.R.
agent at Cranbrook had the-.nerve to
charge excess baggage on my trunk.
Theii at Eastport, the customs officer
gave me a thorough going over���-he
was looking for ivory, I suspect."
"So they caught you near Moyie,"
'the reporter queried. "I operated a
paper there at one time. ' "Yes, P
liearcl- about it in my travels round
Moyie. I also heard a lot of other
tilings about you, which are a credit to
you, your tie and vest, and the inhabitants of Moyie."

Sept-ember is becoming a, popular
month for marriages judging by the
number of honeymoon couples leaving from Windsor Street Station,
Montreal, recently. On Labor Day
no less than 50 couples boarded the

day, however, was some years ago
in June when 70 couples left Windsor Station one morning.
The new North Channel below
Quebec will be opened to navigation
on June 1 next and continue during
the high water season, according to
a recent announcement of the Marine Department. The new channel
extends in a straight line from St.
Jean, Isle of Orleans, to near the
north shore. The work has been
underway for the past ten years.
The minimum depth of water at
high tide will be 35 feet. When all
the work is done there will be the
same minimum at low tide.
"The Littl-s Red' Schoolhouse" will
be .brought on rails'to the children
living, in the remote areas along the
Canadian Pacific in Northern Ontario between Sudbury and Chapleau.
'Fully equipped with desks and teachers' accommodations the railway
cars will visit about six points a-
month.- There are about.400 pupils
in these areas of the North who suffer disadvantages from the lack of
school accommodation. It is expect-
ed that eventually the entire areas
will be served by_ travelling schools.
