The immigration season is just opening, and, judging from all reports
and present prospects, Canada is,due.to receive a larger influx of settlers
than lu any year since llie period between 1900 and the outbreak of the war.
'ghis increasing stream of people Canada-wards results from a number
of factors. In the first place, conditions in Europe are more favorable than
tliey have been since the upheaval caused hy the v.-ar, and peoplo who
< have long been anxious to emigrate aro better able to do so. Canada, too,
has somewhat relaxed tho restrictions imposed on immigration following
the^war and when this counlry, like all others, was faced with tho problems of readjustment and the re-establishment in civilian life and employment-of the hundreds of thousands of Canadians whose energies had been
devoted to war activities and industries*. "Until our domestic problems
of unemployment and0rehabilitation had been solved it was generally considered unwise to allow any large numbers of nc-w people to enter the
The economic and financial situation throughout Canada has likewise
enormously improved; employment is now general; great development
enterprises are under way; railway aud building construction is increasing;
trade and commerce is steadily and rapidly expanding. .
Agriculture has enjoyed several fairly prosperous years, and, whatever
may he. the didic.uUies yet to be overepme, they are b0eing faced and solved,
'with the result that the Canadian farmer is today in a much better and
more hopeful position Ihan is his fellow-agriculturist in the United States.
The Canadian farmer through organization and" co-operation ��� has successfully-met problems which still confront the United States farmer, and
solutions lo which he asks Government authorities to provide..
The success of the Western Pools, the steady reduction in taxation,
Federal, Provincial and Municipal, decreasing railway deficits, increased
railway branch line construction, all are helpful factors* in the economic
structure, leading to confidence in Canada ami encouraging to. intending
emigrants as providing substantial reasons why they can succeed in this
Tiul, as has been staled in this column on more than one occasion,
successful colonization is.much more important^ thaii quantity in immigration. Canada wants more people,���ho one disputes that fact. But, above
all, Canada's future, growth, prosperity and sound national development
demands that our immigrants be transformed in the shortest possible space
of time into contented, law-abiding, prosperous people, resulting in
permanent homes and good citizens.
To* achieve this much to be desired end,^governments, railways, and
organizations of many kinds are doing much and can do more, but,* in the
final analysis, municipal and school bodies and the individual neighbors of
these newcomers can exert the most powerful and helpful influence. Every
rural municipal council, every rural school trustee board, should in itself
be a small local colonization, board, alert and ready to make welcome each
and every incoming settler, regardless of his race, creed or circumstances
in life.
Present settlers should make it a part of their duties' of citizenship to
extend a hearty welcome to their now neighbors, to offer such advice as
may be necessary, and give a helping hand in lime of sickness or difficulty.
These newcomers, if thus encouraged,, will become permanent residents. As
such they will help to develop the district and the ������'Province. They will
bear their share of thy tax burden, and thus lighten it for all. Their presence,
will mean better roads, better schools, and the possibility of modern con
veniences now considered out of the question because of cost to the present
sparse,, and scattered population.
The eyes of the world, and especially-of Great Britain and the rest of
the Empire, will be focusscd 'on Canada in this year of its diamond jubilee.*
Tens of thousands of people will come to make their future homes in this
Dominion. Their success in the great adventure, means everything to them,
but it will also mean much to the future of all Canada. No Canadian of
today can render greater service to the counlry than by doing all that lies
in his or her power to make immigration to the Dominion this year successful by the conversion of the newcomers,' through sane and practical
colonization, into permanent settlers* and Worthwhile citizens, the,
greatest asset of any country, and the only abiding foundation of national
grea,tness in the truest moaning of the term.
Urges End of Wars

"The sort of unity I want to see

British ambassador to Washington in
a speech on Anglo-Saxon unity, delivered before tho Twentieth Century
Club at Washington. "I should like

"if we have to spend'large."sums

"let us at least do so without reference to the armameuts of the oher
but only considering our own necessities tor protection generally. There
cau be no unity of heart or of purpose if we aro going to begin eyeing
each other with suspicion every
time the other builds a new, ship or
devises some engine of destruction."
Speaking of conditions in Europe,
Sir Esnie reminded his hearers that

��� Weak, lacking in strength, energy

are the symptoms of a great majority
of people who have been benefited by-

After twenty years of practical_experience and research, the late Dr. F.
W. Forbes Ross, noted cancer specialist, announced, in 1912, that cancer is
caused by deficiency of potassium
"salts" in the-body and if such,deficiency is remedied,'Cancer, even in
advanced cases, will retrograde.. Before his death, this eminent English
authority abundantly proved the truth
of his assertion and, since then, the
voluntarily written testimony of.thousands of sufferers who slate they have
been completely restored has brought
justified hope and confidence to
countless others ou both sides of the
Atlantic ocean.
The public is but slowly realizing
the unpleasant truth that while
scientific refinement deprives all
white flour and white sugar of the
last trace of potassium, the boiling
of our vegetables also destroys the'
health-preserving organic salts which
an all-wise Creator originally placed
in them and a civilized world, having
eliminated its food values, is today
consuming what Dr. Forbes Ross
described as "muck minus minerals."
Such diet creates more acids than
the human liver cau neutralize or
dispose of" and the consequent inevitable potassium starvation results
in rheumatism Jn any of its varied
forms, goitre, eczema or any of the
maladies caused by potassium deficiency, including; ulceration of stomach or other.1 organs whicli, if not
remedied, is liable to degenerate to
cancer. In fact, fhe now practically

Has Powerful War Weapon
Britain  Guards Secret of Mysterious
Invisible   Searchlight  Ray
The British Government is jealously guarding its new war.., secret; a
mysterious invisible searchlight ray
which makes it in-possible for an
enemy to conduct military operations
at night unobserved.   ���
It is oue of the most formidable war
weapons yet discovered, and it was
discovered accidentally.
John L. Baird, inventor of the televisor, and the discoverer of the mysterious ray, accidentally slunihled on
the new ray while he was trying to
perfect the television apparatus wltn
which lie now broadcasts pictures oy
radio as far as 150, miles.
It belongs fo the infra-red section
of tlie spectrum outside the range of
the human eye. ; His process is to
isolate and use tlie ray which the human eye cannot see but which is susceptible of being recordod ou his
secret apparatus.
"By proper adaption of these principles," he disclosed, "it will be possible to see an enomy in the dark
when he believes himself to be unobserved.
"So far wo aro seeing over comparatively short distances, but it has
now become simply a question of cct-
fain technical Improvements and the
application of greater power in order
to be able to see a person or a scene
whicli is thousands of miles distant
from the" point whero wo are looking
into the receiving screen,"
His associate, Captain O. G.
Hutchinson, goes even further. "Attacking aeroplanes approaching under the cover of darkness will be disclosed to the defending head quarters

Telepathy by Radio
interecting  Experiment Conducted by
Sir Oliver Lodge
It is.improbable   that   the   recent
telepathy  tests of Sir  Oliver Lodge
will provide an argument in favor of
the central belief of spiritists, namely
that the living can bc brought into
communication with ihe dead, but it
may add some valuable data to thu
theory of thought transference.   The
average man   is   incredulous   about
spirii ism, but probably lias some experience of his own lo support the contention that there aro certain prosons
who can tell what is passing in the
mind of another, person, and others
who have ,the gift of seeing on tho
instant what is happening at a-distance.   The Lodge   experiment   was
conducted over   the   radio   and  was
participated in'by moit of lhe radio
users in England. Half a dozen per
sons wore shut in a room which couLd
have no communication with the out
side world, and, from  time  to time
concentrated their minds upon some
object held up by one ol' them. The
rest of England was invited to con
'centrate its mind upon what was going on and send a description of the
articles exhibited.   So far J0,000 have
sent in answers, aiid more are pouring In.   Some time will elapse before
Sir Oliver, Lodge is able to tabulate
the'results and lei us know if there
was in England'V single person able
to penpfrade to  that secluded room
and see what was lpippening there as
well as tbo&e present in person.
Ono of the objecls held up was ;i
playing card, the deuce of clubs.
There were some who reported hav-
there were also an equal number who
had soon every other card in the
pack. This is the sort-'of thing the
public would expect, bur. some other
answers belong to a different category. One of the objects held up lo
the in/isible audience was a curious
mafic, '"which' one of the party put
over his face and crowned the picture-with a derby-liat. - From a remote part of the country came an
accurate picture of,mask and hat. The
same "thing happened when auotlior
hold up three sprays of lilac blossom.
It is easier to.explain these correct
impressions -by the theory of second
sight than" by the-theory of coincidence which would account for the
identification of the -card. There
seems to bc such a thing as thought
transference, and some believe that
there are mxiall waves of high fre-
Cjiiency which carry certain impressions to whatever nerve centres are
capable ot receiving them. As we
learn .more about radio we may learn
more about these thought waves, and
build up 'a scientific foundation for

Copied Crusader's Armor
Young   Englishman   Has   Made  Complete Suit in Spare Time
A complete suit of-chain armor supposed to be only one in existence iias
been made in his spare time by a
young man at Nottingham, England.  '
There are many examples of chain
armor in- museums and private houses, but the maker has been unable to
trace a complete suit/of interlinked
chain mail," as worn by the Ciusaders
in the thirteenth century, aii) where.
The suit lie has made is a remarkable example of   craftsmanship   and
patient research.   Ile spent two years
assembling   the   armor,   and   many
more in gathering the correct details
and actually making the suit.
Some idea of the enormous amount
oL work involved may be gathered
from (he fact that the total number
of links in the suit is 47,520? Each
link required four distinct operations, necessitating 190,080 opera-
lions altogether, "and all through the
correct gauge and strength of iron
wire has been used as far as possible.
Every detail has been thoroughly
studied and carefully reproduced by
lhe maker. He spent much ol his
time visiiing tho old pr'e-Reformation
churches of England, in some of
which are wonderful monumental
brasses dating from 1277 (o J?,L
which, when taken as a whole, sho->\
the Crusaders' armor in its entirety.

Easter Sunday, according _ to

Sunday after the full moon following
tho vernal equinox; in other words,
tlie first Sunday after the ecclesiastical full moon on or next after
March: 21. The first efforts' to bring
about a unifoim date were taken at
tl.io Council ol* Nicaea, called by Constantine in 325, when it was decided
that Easter was to bo on Sunday and
on the same day throughout the
world.' The correct date was to bo
reckoned at Alexandria, then the
home of astronomical science, aud an

Jugs were based on an eight-year
cycle, when the changes of sun and

when a cycle of 532 years was used.
Ultimately the nineteen-year cycle
was adopted, "which accounts for ilie

G.NR. May Discard \.
Curlew-Oroville Line
With the Great Northern looking to eliminate part of its line
which are not regarded as paying
propositions, it is stated that
their line from Curlew to Oroville,
Wash., may be abandoned. This
also touches Canadian territory
at Midway, Myncaster, and
Bridesville. As. Midway is already supplied with railway facilities by the Canadian Pacific, it
remains only for the Myncaster-
Bridesville area with Molson;
Wash., that would be seriously
affected by discarding that branch'.
While these towns will naturally
raise some objection, it is stated
that the railway company expect
that they will be given .the ��� nece'Sr
sary authority for discontinuing
this branch;' Oroville is now
served principally from Wenatchee, so will not be affected, arid
the Great Northern may make
some arrangements for' taking
care of traffic from the Molson
and Bridesville districts.���Grand

A new Canadian bird, the "tur-
ken," has made its appearance. It
is a cross between a turkey and a
Rhode Island hen, and was first
brought to public attention at the
Edmonton poultry show. George
Spurgeon, who raised it, claims that
it will effect a" revolution in the
poultry- business, as it combines the
best features of the hen and the
turkey. It has a hen body and a
turkey head.
His Majesty , King George and
H.R.H. the Prince of Wales have
notified the British section of the
World's Poultry Congress that they
intend to exhibit poultry at the
congress exhibition to be held in
Ottawa frorii July 27 to August 4
next. There is also a possibility
of the Queen of the Netherlands
and King Alfonso of Spain sending
exhibits, in which case the Canadian capital will be the first city in
the world privileged to house the
exhibits  of   several    royal. flocks.
The Indians of the three prairie
provinces last season produced approximately 1,000,000 bushels of
grain, of which about half, or 488,-
000 bushels was wheat, according
to a recent government report.
There are about 35,000 Indians in
the area.in question and the portions reserved for' their use include
some of the most fertile land of
the west. They.had 97,000 acres of
land under cultivation in 1926 and
they own about 25,000 head of cattle
and 35,000 horses of a good type.
Warren Cordingly of Ashton, Idaho, won the 85-mile dog race from
Calgary to Banff held recently in
connection, with the Banff annual
Winter Carnival. The race was one
of the hardest fought in the' history; of these events. Cordingly's
lead dog broke down and was car-'
ried. to the finish line on the sled.
Ike Mills'..team, of, Banff, picked to
win the race, was. attacked ,by town
dogs'' near Calgary. Both driver
and dogs were .badly bitten but
stuck to the trail and finished.
Applications for permits to develop hydro power^Jn Western Ontario and Northern Manitoba are on
a scale that represents an ultimate
volume of 5,000,000 horse-power,
indicating the industrial growth
that the territory is achieving. These
range all the way from the Lake
of the Woods country to the basin
of the Nelson River, and relate to
pulp and paper mills, mining plants,
civic hydro promotion and transportation, projects.
During 1927 more than 6,000
Hungarians will emigrate to Canada, according to Albert de Hay-
den, Hungarian Consul-General of
Canada, who is here on business in
connection with the 6,000 countrymen who came toCanada last year.
"My investigations have shown," he
said, "that on the average the newly arrived Hungarians' are doing
fairly well despite the fact that this
is a dull time of.the year in farming and to a lesser extent in industrial plants."
"If they can pitch ball as well

Youth Victorious in Quebec Dog Derby
l-Emile St. Coi^,^mmT^lMtunI^twtuii^l Do? Derby   2-St. Goddard's team on the home Stretch.  3-Paddy Nolan,
c     lo-ytar old musher and twm v, Inch i an fourth.   4-Alaslca's entry, Leonhard Seppala, runner-up In race. '
routh made a successful bid for
supremacy in the dog racing
realm when Emile St. Goddard, 19-
year old dog musher from The Pas,
Manitoba, won the Eastern International Dog Derby held at Quebec
February .21, 22 and 23. His team
of seven:, highly-trained greyhound
huskies dashed over the finish line
of the three-day race, covering the
120 gruelling miles in 11 hours and
���37% minutes, beating all previous
records by 54 minutes and 35 seconds.
He secured for the second time, the
first in 1925, tho handsome cup
donated by the Quebec International
Dog Sled Derby Club.
Leonhard Seppala, he_.o of the epic
race with serum to the stricken Alaskan city of Nome, was a strong contender in the Quebec classic and finished just 20 minutes behind St. Gcri-
"dard. Seppala, experienced driver as
he is, -was forced to give'way to a
man 30 years younger, driving a team
of better trained huskies than his
.own. Sepalla bettered St. Goddard's
time by several minutes in the last
day of the race, as the winner was
part of the race owing to a strain-
tendon in his leg. George CheVrette
disputed every inch of the hilly
course for second place but was
beaten out by the Alaskan musher.
"Paddy" Nolam. the 15-year old contestant made, one of the most' remarkable showings in dog racing annals when he finished fourth out of
fourteen entries. He added glory to
the reputation 'made last year, when,
although his dogs were disqualified
for fighting,;he.stuck to the trail and
finished ninth in a field of 20, the
whole of the distance being run in a
blinding .blizzard. A gloom however
has been cast over the Nolan household recently for the day after Paddy's great race his mother, -\vho had
been lying ill in the hospital, died.
After each day of the race Paddy
would leave his dogs in charge of
friends and go to his mother's bedside at the hospital.. The courage of
this lad is a general, topic: of discussions, and old and experienced
mushers are concerned over his performances.
Young St. Goddard hails from the
forced to stay on the sled a greater northern Manitoba town "where the
use of dogs is a commercial necessity.
Here it was that dog racing in Canada first took place. A group of devotees, wishing to perpetuate the All-
Alaskan Sweepstakes, which died out
in 1915, gathered in the" Snake Room
of the Opasquai Hotel-rand arranged
to hold an annual race which they
have carried out. St. Goddard has
been the winner of this long race- at
The Pas several years, including the
race iii January.
Out of 100 dogs in the recent race
at Quebec, there were but three recognized "lead" dogs. They were
"Tohby" St. Goddaird'e leader;
"Fritz", Seppala's lead dog and "Rover" trained by the youthful Nolan.
Frank Dupuis, "winner of the race last
year, finished 5th with hut three dogs
in harness. It is the driver who can
successfully train the leader of the
pack who is going to pilot his team
to victory. Dogs in a team- are not
unlike any other racing animals;
there must be a guide. Seppala's
famous Alaskan malamutes entered
the Canadian race this year scenting
victory. They battled heroically but
lost to a better-trained team.
