J.S.D. HEBRIDEAN COLONIZATION AT
VERMILION ALBERTA
Scottish Immigration Aid Society's
New Scheme
THE settlement of Hebrideans in Western
Canada has been one of the most satisfactory phases of Dominion colonization
in recent years, regarded from all the
various viewpoints. Canadian authorities have
observed with the utmost satisfaction the
rapid and complete assimilation of these island
people in a strange environment and unfamiliar
conditions, and the speedy manner in which
they developed into productive farmers and
real Dominion assets. The delegation from
the Hebrides, headed by the Very Rev. Canon
Macdougall, which toured the Dominion last
fall and closely investigated Hebridean settlement with a view to stimulating and expanding
such colonization if found justifiable, expressed
itself as completely satisfied with what had been
accomplished and the happy and prosperous
state of Hebridean settlers in Canada. Therefore, regarded from the standpoint of either
country, any projected expansion of the migration from the Hebrides is to be viewed with
gratification.
The Scottish Immigration Aid Society was
formed by a group of philanthropic individuals
who were keenly appreciative of the benefits
of Hebridean settlement in Canada, and were
desirous of extending it to the mutual advantage
of Canada and Scotland. It was financed by
these individuals in conjunction with the
Empire Settlement Board. The society, since
its inception, has been extremely active in the
matter of settling Hebridean crofters in Alberta
and nursing them on to success. It introduced
a novel note into Canadian colonization by
erecting a number of cottages on land in Alberta
for the reception, assimilation, and training of
newcomers from the Hebrides, where the immigrant, after travelling the thousands of miles
by land and sea, instead of facing the hardships
of pioneering, found a home awaiting him on
arrival.
The Society's plans for 1925 are equally
novel and ambitious. Recently, through taking
advantage of the provisions of the Empire
Settlement Act, the Society was able to complete the purchase--of -a^ substantias block -of—
land just north of Vermilion in Alberta, consisting of nearly 30,000 acres. This block
is diagonally intersected by the Cut Knife-
Whitford branch of the Canadian Pacific Railway, which provides convenient and adequate
transportation facilities. The block is situated
in an Alberta area which has ot late years
become widely and favorably known for the
variety as well as the high excellence of its
farm products. It is the Society's aim to
colonize this tract with Hebridean families
under  particularly favorable conditions.
Through funds secured by participating
in the terms of the Empire Settlement Act, the
Society is at present engaged in building houses
on each quarter section of the block. As soon
as these are ready one hundred and eighty
families will be brought out from the Northern
Scottish islands to occupy them. Everything
will be found on their arrival in complete readiness for immediate residence, and the settlers be
placed many years ahead as compared with
ordinary pioneer settlement. Each family will
be assisted in getting farming operations under
way immediately with a loan of $1,500. These
arrangements, in combination with the proven
qualities of application and perseverance possessed by Hebrideans, form the best augury
for success.
The Scottish Immigrant Aid Society is to
be congratulated on its initiative in moving
to take advantage of the settlement fund made
available by the Imperial Government to continue its valuable work in Canadian colonization.
In a consideration of the complete success of
former Hebridean Colonization under less favorable circumstances, the scheme promises to be
a very valuable contribution to Canadian agricultural settlement. HEBRIDEAN COLONIZATION AT

favour of his engaging in farming and am willing to live on a farm, co-operate and assist him in his
undertaking in every possible way.

I have put in a call over the telephone and hope
to spealc to you, but I thought it better as the messahe was important to
send you a copy of the cablegram from Colonel Dennis, so that you can see
same for yourself.
I think it is nothing less than disasterous if
you have to return to Canada at the end of February, not only in connection
with the question of making the further collections necessary for the Society's
part of the cost of the cottages, but also for the accepting and recruiting of
the families. Naturally, I and my staff, will do out utmost to assist you and
help you, but it is going to make things very difficult, and will necessitate
someone being delegated to approve of the final Selection. I see by the cable
that it will be sufficient if you are back at the end of February, so that you
have about three weeks to investigate the families we have on hand now.
Yours very truly,
Manager. 3M.MM.

Dear Pather MacDonell,
I enclose herewith an application form received
from Mr. John Tuohy of Clogher, Irish Free State, a farmer with a
capital of £300, who is booked to sail on the "Minnedosa'* 20th March.
You will remember that I showed you this
application when you were here yesterday. This man, cannot, of course,
obtain the reduced rate under the Empire Settlement Act, but I feel sure
that you will be glad to welcome him in your community and do everything
you can to settle the family where they can be within reach of your
Repre sentat ive s.
Would you be good enough to write to Mr. Tuohy
setting out what you wish him to do, and send a copy of your letter to
Mr. Hogan, so that he may be informed of the action taken.
Yours very truly,
Manager. •

LOIOPAHDlll.
At the Meeting of the Canadian Emigration Committee held in
Room So. 8 at the House of Commons on Thursday, 10th March, it was decided
tc delegate Mr. C.J.Smith, Vice President of the Canadian National Railways
and Colonel J.-.Dennis, Chief Commissioner of the Canadian Pacific Railways,
the task of preparing a memorandum setting out the restrictions rets-rding
the movement of people to Canada under the Smpire Settlement Act. The
memorandum to Se "based on -
A. Barriers on Emigration due to unfair restriction
B. General Barriers tc Se removed.
The attached memorandum is therefore submitted.
A. BARRIERS OH I_nc___riON I>U_ TO U__?AIR RESTRICTION.
Single Men.
"The  Canadian Government have "broadcasted that they wish tc move
14,000 single men to Canada, of which tho Canadian national and Canadian
Bacific Railways have "been asked to recruit 5,000 in the proportion of
2000 experienced and SCOO inexperienced.
The Canadian Pacific Railway with the resolve tc co-operate to
the fullest possible extent with the Canadian Government mobilised 37 of their
staff for the purpose of interviewing and reporting on applicants. This
was undertaken at the scle expense of the Company.  Ottawa have now insisted
that the Canadian Pacific cut down its interviewing staff not to exceed
twenty men, thereby seriously retarding the work of recruiting.
The classification of the inexperienced is too narrow, shutting
out desirable young men who, on account of the difficulty of obtaining employment in this country have accepted clerical or commercial positions and are,
therefore, ineligible.  Tho road labourer is preferred to the well-educated
and physically fit youth from the Secondary and Public Schools, who at the
moment, may be engaged in clerical or cemmercial employment. The classification should be widened in order to accept all physically fit men who, on
examination, would appear to be o__vpi&_le to Canadian farm life. Skilled
artisans going out to assured employment should also be included.
Families.
Now that the Government have accepted all the families that can
be placed under the 3,000 Family Scheme, there is practically no opportunity
for the settlement of families in Canada.  In view of this it is important
that the British Government should carefully consider any proposals for
family settlement_which have been or which may shortly be laid before it,
as it is only by family settlement that the problems facing both the
United Kingdom and Canada can be solved.
The Canadian Government have, however, authorised the Canadian
Railways to select a 1000 families for settlement of whom the Railways must
accepjk responsibility, nevertheless, the Canadian Government insist that all
families applying for the Reduced Rate should be examined by a Canadian
Government Officer even though the"Railway Companies may be responsible
for the settlement of the families. The Government staff of Interviewing
Officers is entirely inadequate to examine the families in the time available.
The placement depends on'the families arriving in March and April. Thus the
delay retards settlement., and in many cases disgusts the applicants who
frequently withdraw their application. - 2 -
Domestic Porkers - \/onen»
"There is a desperate need for domectio workers in Canada,
and this applies tc all Provinces alike. It is well known and accepted
everywhere except in Government circles. The Canadian Government have been
trying- to insist, however, that only cook-generals of the first class are
needed, whereas everyone knows that the need is so great that the ordinary
housewife will take any willing girl of good character and dean habits
who is prepared tc assist in the general work of the housre.
The Canadian Railways are prepared to accept full responsibility for the selection and placement of all domestic workers who should
get the benefit of the Reduced Rate.
Unaccompanied ./omen.
AliTwomen going- out to reside in Canada, travelling unaccompanied must apply to a Canadian Government Agent for permission before
a ticket can be purchased, whereas on the Continent in the countries known
as "Preferred" t. woman has only to prove that she is going to assured
employment to be able to obtain a, visa fcr Canada,
In the "non-preferred" countries the woman is given a card
of introduction to the Canadian Government Labour Commissioner at Winnipeg.
They can then obtain a visa,
All have tc pass medical inspection by doctors approved by
the Chief Medical Officer of the Canadian Government.
Boy Migration*
Free transportation is now provided for boys going out to
farm employment tinder the auspices of an approved society.  Boys must "be
between the ages of 14 and 17 years,, The age should be extended to all
boys who have nc+ reached their eighteenth birthday on the day of sailing.
United States,.
The Immigration Department have given an undertaking tc the
United States Government that they will assist that Government in the
prevention of immigration tc the United States of all save those who are
permitted to enter under the quota arrangement. The result of this agreement is that when prospective colonists, in every way desirable, apply for
the Reduced Rate tc Canada and happen to mention during their examination
by the Canadian Government inspectors that they have friends in the United
States it almost invariably follows that the applications are refused..
References«
~~The demand for two references from every applicant under
the assisted rate has been the cause of arany delays in completing
applications,, In many-cases employers are not given as referees in view
of the danger of being dismissed.  The reference form is ill-suited
for the -__effi-perienced men as the form does not take into account the
employment or cpecial duties of any but experienced farm labour.
The task of the migrant getting to Canada is not an easy one.
Heavy restrictions and frequent examinations must retard thousands of a
suitable type from even making application.  The atmosphere surrcunding
the migration movement could be greatly improved and a new confidence given
to; the potential migrants in this country in approaching the task of seeking
an entry in tc Canada and placement theree w&tS^fc-l
B, CSSSRAL BARRIERS TO BE REMOVED.
The Canadian Government, Instead of increasing their organisation
in the British Isles tc recruit British colonists, have, i:i point of fact,
: educed it within reoent years by closing the Emigration Offices at
Southampton. Cambridge and ..berdeen.
In our view  the stimulation and encouragement.of a larger
movement can best be secured "by a delegation tc the Canadian Railways cf
much of the routine work of the selection, inspection and placement of
farm labourers, families and domestic servants*
We, therefore, recommend, the following -
1. The Canadian Railways who undertake the placing cf domeStis
servants to be entirely responsible fcr the selection and approval

Empire Settlement Act, 1922 (Canada)
3,000 FAMILIES WANTED
FOR    SETTLEMENT    IN    CANADA
FARMS   PROVIDED
LOANS   FOR   PURCHASE   OF   LIVESTOCK
PASSAGE   MONEY   ADVANCED
FREE   PASSAGES   FOR   CHILDREN
His Majesty's Government and the Government of the Dominion of Canada have entered into an
agreement to advance funds sufficient for the settlement of 3,000 British families from the United
Kingdom upon farm lands in Canada which are ready for occupation.
For this purpose, the Dominion Government will provide farms in settled and established districts,
and within reasonable distance of a railway. Houses will be available on all the farms, and a sufficient
part of the land of each farm will be fit for immediate cultivation. Extensively improved farms will
be reserved for those settlers who possess considerable farm experience.
Loans for the purchase of livestock and equipment, not to exceed £300 per family, will be made
at the discretion of the Dominion Government, and as the progress of the settlers warrants.
Situation  of Farms.
The farms are situated in the various Provinces of the Dominion. The final decision as to the
Province in which the various settlers will be placed will rest with the Dominion Government. But
the wishes of the settlers will be consulted within reason, regard being had, so far as possible, to the
kinds of farming which they wish to undertake and their aptitude for that kind of farming.
All land, including livestock, equipment, etc., will be sold to the settlers at reasonable cost prices.
The average cost of a farm and its livestock, etc., will be about 4,000 dollars to 5,000 dollars (£800 to
£1,000). It is unlikely that many of the families selected will be able to find this sum in cash. Those
who are unable to do so will receive a loan of such amount as they may require for this purpose. The
Loans will be repayable over a period of 25 years, with interest at 5 per cent, per annum. The annual
payment in respect of a loan will thus amount to not more than 360 dollars a year, or £6 a month. The
first instalment will be repayable at the end of the second season after the settler's arrival in the Dominion.
Thus, settlers who proceed to Canada under the scheme in the spring or summer of 1926 will be required
to pay the first instalment of any loan made to them in the autumn of 1927.
Conditions  of Settlement.
Families will not be established on farms of their own immediately on arrival in Canada, but each
family will be provided with suitable accommodation. The adult male members will be expected to
acquire local farm experience by accepting employment on farms in the vicinity. They cannot expect
large wages while so employed, as they will be inexperienced.
While the male members of the family are gaining experience, their wives and daughters will be
expected to learn to look after cows and poultry, so that they will be able to do this work on their own
farms.
As soon as the family have had adequate training and experience, they will be allowed to start
farming on their own account. The farm offered to them will in some cases be the farm on which they
have been living, but if that farm is not available, they will be given the choice of one or two other farms,
probably in the same neighbourhood.
Groups.
Small groups of families, who come from the same districts in the United Kingdom, will, so far
as possible, be settled within a few miles of each other. But as the farms available under the .'.greement
will all be situated in settled districts and amongst established farms, it will not always be practicable
to settle the groups within easy reach of each other, and it will seldom be possible to settle more than
four or five families in the same district, i.e., with access to the same Church, school, and market town.
It is, of course, necessary in the interests of the new settlers that they should be intermingled with the
established farming population, and thus be enabled to obtain help and advice from them.
It is only in undeveloped and unsettled districts that it is possible to establish considerable numbers
of families on adjoining farms or in close proximity to each other.
Supervision  and  Direction.
During their preliminary employment and whilst they are in process of settlement, the settlers
will he visited approximately once a month by a practical and experienced Farm Supervisor, who will
report on the progress which they are making. If the advice and direction of the Supervisor are followed,
the settlers should be able to start farming independently much earlier than they would otherwise be
able to do.

Who may apply*
No family will be accepted under this scheme unless all its members are physically and mentally
sound. They must also be industrious and thrifty. It is very desirable that each father of a family,
or his wife, should have had previous farm experience, though this may not be insisted upon in special
cases. It must be understood that those without experience will be faced with special difficulties. No
family should apply under the scheme unless all its members are prepared to work hard, and to live as
simply as possible until they are thoroughly established.
Personal  Capital.
Families must pay their own railway fares in this country to the port of sailing, and must defray
their own incidental expenses for meals, etc., from the port of landing in Canada to their final destination.
It is very essential that each family should possess sufficient funds to leave them with at least £25 on
arriving at their final destination, after meeting the expenses mentioned above. This money will be required
in order to furnish the home, and to provide food, clothing, household utensils, etc., until such time as
the family become self-supporting. Families with very little capital can only succeed by exercising
great determination and energy.
Each family selected should take with them such clothing, kitchen utensils, knives, forks, and spoons,
bed linen and bedding as they conveniently can without incurring too heavy excess baggage charges.
Generally speaking, it does not pay to take heavy articles of furniture. It must be clearly understood,
however, that settlers must furnish their own homes on arrival.
Sailings.
The best time to arrive in Canada is early in the month of April. All accepted applicants are urged
to arrange to sail so as to arrive in time for spring work.
Selection.
No family will be accepted under this scheme until all the members of the family have been interviewed by the officials of the Dominion Government and until the Dominion Government has been
satisfied that they are suitable in all respects.
The   Opportunity.
Settlers under this scheme should be able to repay their debts, and become independent farmers
if they work hard, live simply, and exercise the strictest economy. They will have a great advantage
over those who settled in Canada a hundred years ago. They go to settled communities where roads,
schools, and towns have been built up. Their farms will be fenced, their buildings erected, and a considerable part of their farms will have been prepared for cultivation. They will, therefore, avoid many
of the difficulties of a pioneer life.
Applications.
Attached form should be completed and sent to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,
Department of Colonization and Development, or to the nearest Canadian Government Emigration
Agent.    A list of Canadian Pacific Offices and Canadian Government Agents is printed below.
Further particulars including medical certificates will be called for by the Canadian authorities
from applicants selected for final consideration under the scheme. Applicants should on no account
sell up their homes or make preparations for their departure until they are informed that they have
been accepted and have received definite instructions in regard to the date on which they are to sail.

Dear Pather McDonell,
Now that you are emigrating to Canada
a iHfre number of persons from Scotland and the Catholic
Emigration Association, of which I am secretary, undertakes
tee emigration of Catholic children from Scotland, I think it
would he well if rre cam- to some understanding as to what
children you emigrate under your scheme and what children are
emigrated through our Association. It seems to me, spjaklng ,
fay, that if • Hildren are being emigrateagwitn"
the Forth West, they should"
r,a. If, however, the children
are oemg emigrated independent i3>" of their parents, they will
require very careful supervision in Canada, ana snould he
eruigi'ated ihro\igh our Association which has adequate arrangements for the supervision of children, which is recognised
by the English and Canadian Governments for this purpose, ana
which under an Agreement wits the Colonial Office receives
a special grant for the emigration or children.

Something entirely unprecedented in the
way of agricultural triumphs was recorded
at the 1926 International Grain and Hay
Shaw at Chicago, when the ohamjpionshiips
for both wheat and oats were awarded an individual agriculturist. For that year an
Alberta farmer was adjudged to have produced the best wheat and oats on the North
American Continent as decided in can-petition with the best farmers from all parts of
that broad territory. The securing of the
dual trophy is a triumph for Canada, for< the
province of Alberta, for the great Peace
river country, and, in particular, for the successful young farmer, Herman Trelle, of
Wembley, Alberta.
In a knowledge of inside history another
name is added to Canada's list of outstandingly successful farmers who.'have attained
the pinnacle of agricultural success from a
basis of complete ignorance of the fanning
industry and with what is considered often-
•tiiQes the handicap of a total lack of experience, which in-ludes such noteworthies as
Seager Wheeler. J. C Mitchell, and H. G. Ia.
Strange. It is peculiarly fitting and gratifying that this climax of Western Canada's
long series of high international awards won
by her farmers should come at a time when
attention from all directions is' fooussed,
more intently than perhaps ever before, upon
questions of immigration, and a moot point
is the inexperienced man's possibilities of
arriving at agricultural success.
SUCCESS  OF    IRISH   AND   SCOTTISH
SETTLERS.
So successful have the Clan Donald colonies in Alberta, Canada, proved that a new
colony under the same auspices, the Scottish
Immigrant Aid Society, is being established
at Saddle Lake, near St. Paul de Metis, and
fifty cottages are being erected on fifty farms
as a start. The Eev. Andrew MTDonnell,
managing director of the Society, is now in
this country for the purposes of interviewing
suitable applicants for settlement under the
Society scheme. In an interview Father
MTDonnell said Northern Ireland and Scottish families numbering 100, who went to
Alberta during the last spriijg, are .ettldng
down happily, and are well pleased with their
prospects.
" They were delighted with the cottages
provided for them", and describe these as cosy
and comfortable, and well equipped for the
Canadian winter." Father M'Donnell said,
" A number of the older settlers in the Colony
have fifty to sixty acres of their land ready
for seeding next spring, which is pretty good
going. Indeed, several of them are farther
ahead than other settlers who have been in
the district for sixteen or seventeen years."
Those who have been in the country for a
year or two and have secured a good training
in Canadian farming methods, with the addition of quite a bit of money from helping
other farmers during harvest time, are
already well on the way to prosperity, and the
new-comers, when they have had a similar
experience and training, should be well able
to follow suit. It has been proved that those
who worked a bit of land in the old country
i,^„ lit- /«,_ T„_is: •— «•- w™_. -*•—■-"—   « '
&
new iiie overSBaS.
STARTING  A SPINNING  INDUSTRY.
" In addition to the farm and the home,"
Father M'Donnell said, "each family is
provided with two horses, two, and in some
cases three, cows, also about twenty-five
hens. For farm equipment they get a waggon,
breaking plough, harrows, mowers, &c, and
other smaller implements. So they all get
a good start, which means a lot to the new
settler. The children are very happy in
their new and freer surroundings. It is
hoped to start a carding mill soon, for the
making of Donegal tweeds, woollen blankets,
&e. Many of the women took out their spinning-wheels with them and some their hand-
looms, and the Hudson's Bay Company have
bought homespun tweed from the Colony.
There is a big market for these wares, and an
Edmonton merchant has given .£.00 to assist
in establishing a carding mill. This industry
will get the people into the way of keeping a
few sheep on each farm and growing their
own wool, and the women folk will get an
income of their own, which will add to their
contentment.

20 Pipers Training At
a Colony.
HARRIS TWEED  FROM
ALBERTA.
(By KEITH MORRIS.)
Pipe-Major John MacMillan, a braw
Scot from the Hebrides, now a prosperous
and contented settler at the Clan Donald
Colony, Alberta, is training 20 of his fellow Scotsmen, members of the same
colony, to become proficient players, and
there is a possibility that in the near
future the skirl of the bagpipes from a
Scottish-Canadian band, dressed in full
Highland costume, will be heard in the
hills and dales of ancient Caledonia.
In many other ways, too, the customs
of old Scotland are being maintained by
this Celtic   community   oh   the spacious
prairie of Western Canada. '      Rev.  A.
MacDonell,   managing   director   of   the
Scottish   Immigrant   Aid   Society,   who
organised the Clan Donald Colony, and is
both its " Father "   and   friend,   states
that arrangements are under way for the
establishment of a carding mill.    Most of
the women members of the   colony  took
out their spinning wheels with them, and j
some of their   handlooms,   and   already!
Harris homespun tweed, made by Hebri-!
dean hands, has been sold to the Hud- ;
son's Bay Company.    But this picturesque
industry is only in its infancy,,and when,
the carding mill is in full swing, woollen
blankets and other wider material-^will be
made.
There is a big market for these commodities,
and one Edmonton merchant has made a gift
of £400 to Father MacDonell to assist in the
establishment of the mill, which will need
£2000 for its completion. "The people are
eager to have this carding mill," Father
MacDonell says, "and it should prove a boon
to the Colony. For one thing it will get the
settlers into the way of keeping a few sheep
on each farm, and the women folk will be able
to get an income of their own, which will add
to their contentment. All the children are
very happy, and revel in the freedom of
Canadian life."
"Cosy and Comfortable."
The families, numbering 1C0, who went to
Alberta this year under the allspices of the
Clan Donald scheme, are now all settled happily, with every prospect of success.
"They were delighted with.the cottages provided for them, which they described as very
cosy and comfortable, and well equipped for
the Canadian winter. Some of the settlers
who had gone out before, and had secured a
year or two of training in Canadian farming
methods, have fifty to sixty acres of their land
ready for seeding next spring. During the
harvest season they worked for other farmers,
taking their own horses and rack. In this
way they earned over £20 per month, and
those of the settlers who had sons of working
age made quite a bit of money this way which
will be very useful to them.
"Each family is provided by the Scottish
Immigrant Aid Society with two horses, but
many of the settlers have managed to get
another two horses for themselves. Two cows
are also provided, and, in some cases three, or
more. Twenty-five hens are also included in
the stock, and farming equipment, such as
waggon, breaking plough, harrows, mowers,
etc., and the smaller implements. In fact,
every provision, in addition to the land, is
made for the settlers in assisting them to success and prosperity." A church and hall have
been built; the latter on week days is used for
pipe practice and other social amenities of a
Scottish nature. When the carding mill is
working, power for electric light will be
secured, and this will add to the brightness of
the houses.
Bed Deer is the central point for the various
Clan Donald communities, and the Colony has
a big training farm at this place.
A New Colony.
The Scottish Immigrant Aid Society, inspired with the success which has met their
efforts in settling Western Canada with sturdy
Scottish crofters is establishing another Clan
Donald Colony at Saddle Lake, near St. Paul
de Metis, in Alberta, and Father MacDonell
is now in this country in connection with the
new settlement arrangements. Eight thousand
acres of land in this district have been secured
for colonisation, and fifty cottages are being
erected as a nucleus. It is the intention to
establish additional colonies, and ere many
years have passed Alberta seems likely to be
the home of thousands of Highland Scots, who
will find in the big new land opportunities for
advancement denied them, however much they
love it, in their Mother Country.
Scotland's loss will be Canada's gain, and
Scots at home who not unnaturally regret the
movement of so many Highland families from
their midst will have some consolation from
the fact that their fine national traditions and
old Scottish customs will be remembered and
continued in the. new colonies abroad.
And Pipe Major John MacMillan will have
to look after his laurels. Other r^ bands
are sure to spring up in Alberta.    5j o^^^^-^?

Lord Carson and Canada
The people of Canada, more particularly the lavge and pow rful Orange
element in the Pvo-n. ..of Ontario, are
hoping to obtain a visit from Lord
Carson in the Sew Year, Sir
James Craig, the Premier of Ulster,
made an extended tour there this year,
aiuL although the visit was a private
one, it is well known that the warmth
of his reception in all parts of the
Dominion was keenly appreciated by
the people of Ulster. The Orangemen
of Ontario have already drafted the
terms of the invitation which they
intend in the near future to present to
Lord Carson, and they have received
unofficial assurances that such an
invitation would not be unacceptable
to his Lordship. Probably a definite
decision on the matter will p.i be made
for some time. For one thing, nobody
concerned would wish such an event to
clash in the slightest with the proposed
visit of the Prince of Wales and of Mr
^ldwin in connection with the celebra-
lo^^^the diamond jubilee of ^ajjadian

BOYS FOR ONTARIO FARMS.
The Hon. John S. MARTIN, Ontario's Minister of Agriculture,
when announcing that 900 English boys would be brought
over next year for Ontario farms, said, according to the Montreal correspondent of the Times, that the experiments of the
past year justified the attempt on a large scale in 1927.
SUCCESSFUL HEBRIDEANS.
The Hebridean farmers, taken to Saskatchewan farms last year,
are doing splendidly according to a field supervisor's report. The
hundred settler families from the Hebrides were taken out by
the Scottish Immigrant Aid Society to form the Clan Donald
1 Colony. When they landed at their destination they found
farms, houses, barns and equipment ready so that no time
was lost in preliminaries.
"BUYING OUT HIS OLD MASTER."
" A man with a family should embrace the opportunity of
coming to Canada now. If he works here like he has to do
in Ireland, he will be able in a few years to go Jiome and buy
out his old master."
This interesting passage occurs in a letter from Mrs.
Devlin, wife of Mr. Thomas Devlin, now settled near Vermilion (Alberta). With their four children, they left the old
home near Money more, Co. Derry, in June last, and proceeded to Canada under the Clan Donald Scheme, which
places crofters on Western holdings.
Mrs. Devlin, describing their early experiences in the new
laud, says : —
" We were met in Vermilion by Father MTntrye and
taken to an hotel; he then got us everything, and sent away
for a team of horses, a splendid wagon, two cows, two pigs
and 25 hens, also a cooking stove and all utensils, a new bed
and mattress, a box of groceries and two bags of flour Then
he sent out a mowing machine, a raking machine, plough and
other machinery I could not mention.
" We have never met such kind people as we have met in
Canada. I trust you will have this published so that poor
fellows will not heed what many a time we have read in the
papers about Canada. All we are sorry about is that we did
not come sooner."
"PLENTY OF ROOM: PLENTY OF WORK."
U.S.A., and worked 011 a cattle ranch, finally reaching the
Fraser Valley, British Columbia. At a spot 20 miles from
Vancouver, then, 27 years ago, a place of a few thousand and
now a city of 250,000—I started farming on my own account,
purchasing the land in its primeval state at £6 an acre, and
clearing it. To-day the farm consists of 125 acres, and is
stocked with pure-bred Friesian cattle. Others can do the
same as I have done. Times, it is true, are different, but in
my opinion they are easier, for when I went out there were
none of the schemes that exist at present, and your nearest
neighbour might be 20 or 50 miles away. To-day you probably
have a farm adjoining, or a mile or so away.
How the "Eight Hours " Day Works.
' Canada is a young man's country, but it is also very

concerned we endeavour to be ' good Union men ' by

and the possibilities of a "young man making it a suci\_»

of from 35 !b 45»^s. cciallv if he has a family growing up,
shoulcH ■:,:!. jfcojB out and be successful."
■k Labour's Fear.
, ■ - PP^he Edmonton Council had protested to the
Feder___Pv-riiment against flooding the district with immigrants Mr Park said the Council's fears were not justified,
but in some Labour circles they advocated limiting immigration, so that wages might be maintained. In his opinion, if
Canada could add another million to her population it would
be to her advantage, for those people would create a market
that did not at present exist. The fact that a man had had
little experience of farming was no detriment if he had the
will to " go right in " and work hard and learn.
Quest for "Cue hy " Jobs.
" Of course," Canada has a certain class who are on the

NOVICE'S   SIGNAL   SUCCESS.
Canadian Farmer's Double Championship.
Something entirely unprecedented in the way of agricultural
triumphs was recorded at the 1926 International Grain and Hay
Show at Chicago last month, when the championships for both
wheat and oats were awarded an individual agriculturist. An
Alberta farmer was adjudged to have produced the best wheat
and oats on the North American Continent, as decided in competition with the best farmers from all parts of that broad territory. The securing of the dual trophy is a triumph for
Canada, for the Province of Alberta, for the Peace River
country, find in particular for the successful young farmer,
Herman Trelle, of Wembley, Alberta.
Another name, too, has been added to Canada's list of outstanding successful farmers—like Seager Wheeler, J. C.
Mitchell, and H. C. L. Strange—who have attained the pinnacle
of agricultural success from a basis of complete ignorance of
farming, and with what is considered oftentimes the handicap
of a total lack of experience.
Herman Trelle was born in Idaho 31 years ago, and came to
Alberta with his parents in 1900. He received his early education at Edmonton, and later attended the University of Alberta,
in the same city, where he was considered one of the most
brilliant students, and, at the age of 17, he was the champion
boy orator of Alberta. IHe graduated as a civil engineer and
was in line for the Rhodes scholarship when the war broke out
and he enlisted and served with the Flying Corps.
Did  Not Know Wheat From Oats.
He returned lo Canada with a strong desire to adopt permanently an out-of-door life, and with inclinations towards
farming. This dominated him when he resumed his work.
In 1920, when on a survey north of Edmonton, he became
greatly attracted to what is now known as the Wembley district
of the Peace River country, and filed on a Government homestead there. When he commenced farming, according to his
own confession, he did not know wheat from oats, and had
practically no capital. He set out to learn the profession
seriously in a scientific way, studying Government bulletins and
securing everything available on the subject. His unswerving
aim to produce the best possible always has received adequate
reward. He has expanded his homestead until he now farms
480 acres, and in the brief time which has elapsed has, in a
material sense, become independent.
The success of this young man, who had never left his farm
until he w^enl to Chicago to exhibit, constitutes one of the finest
of examples of what can be accomplished on Western Canadian
land when the right qualities are brought to direct farming
effort. The history of Trellc's advance from entire ignorance
of farming to the premiership among the continent's agriculturists, and from a minimum of funds to independence in such
a short time, should be the greatest encouragement to young men
parts of the world contemplating farming who may ques-
Tn capabilities in like circumstances.

SCOTLAND   IN   WESTERN   CANADA.
By Keith Morris.
Pipe-Major John MacMillan, a sturdy Scot from the Hebrides,
now a prosperous and contented settler at the Clan Donald
Colony, Alberta, is training twenty of his fellow Scotsmen,
members of the same colony, to become proficient players, and
there is a possibility that in the near future the skirl of the
bagpipes from a Scottish-Canadian band, dressed in full Highland costume, will be heard in the hills and dales of ancient
Caledonia.
In -lany other ways, too, the customs of Old Scotland are
being maintained by this Celtic community on the spacious
prairie of Western Canada. The Rev. A. MacDonell, managing
director of the Scottish Immigrant Aid Society, who organised
the Clan Donald Colony, and is both its " Father " and friend,
states that arrangements are under way for the establishment
of a carding mill. Most of the women members of the
colony took out their spinning wheels with them, and some
their hand-looms, and already Harris homespun tweed, made
by Hebridean hands, has been sold to the Hudson's Bay Company. But this picturesque industry is only in its infancy, and
when the carding mill is in full swing, w-oollen blankets and
other wider material  will  be made.
There is a big market for these commodities, and one Edmonton  merchant has made a gift of ^400 to  Father MacDonell
to assist in the establishment of the mill, which will need ,£2,009
for its completion.
" The people are eager to have this carding mill," Father
McDonell says, " and it should prove a boon to the colony.
For one thing, it will get the settlers into the way of keeping
a few sheep on each farm, and the women-folk will be able
to get an income of their own, which will add to their contentment. All the children are very happy, and revel in the
freedom  of  Canadian  life."
" Cosy and Comfortable."
The families, numbering one hundred, who went to Alberta
this year under the auspices of the Clan Donald scheme, are
now all settled happily, with every prospect of success.
" They were delighted with the cottages provided for them,
which they described as very cosy and comfortable, and well
equipped for the Canadian winter," says Father McDonell.
" Some of the settlers who had gone out before, and had seemed a year or two of training in Canadian farming methods,
have from 50 to 60 acres of their land ready for seeding next
spring. During the harvest season they worked for other
farmers, taking their own horses and rack. In this way they
earned over ^20 per month, and those of the settlers who had
sons of working age made quite a bit of money in this way.
which will be very useful to them.
" Each family is provided by the Scottish Immigrant Aid
Society with two horses, but many of the settlers have
managed to get another two horses for themselves. Two cows
are also provided, and, in some cases, three, or more. Twenty-
five hens are also included in the stock, and farming equipment, such fis a. wagon, breaking plough, harrows, mowers,
etc., and the smaller implements. In fact, every provision, in
addition to the land, is made for the settlers in assisting them
to success and prosperity." A church and hall have been built;
the latter is used on week days for pipe practice and other
social amenities. When the carding mill is working, power
for electric light will be secured, and this will add to the
brightness of the houses.
Red Deer is the central point for the various Clan Donald
communities, and the colony has a big training fatm at this
place
A New Colony.
The Scottish Immigrant Aid Society, inspired with the success which hfis met their efforts in settling Western Canada
with sturdy Scottish crofters, are establishing another Clan
Donald colony at Saddle Lake, near St. Paul de Metis, in
Alberta, and Father MacDonell is now in the Mother Country
in connection with the new settlement arrangements. Eight
thousand acres of land in this district have been secured for
colonisation, and 50 cottages are being erected as a nucleus.
It is the intention to establish additional colonies, and ere
many years have passed Alberta seems likely to be the home of
thousands of Highland Scots, who will find in the big new land
opportunities for advancement denied them in their Mother
Country, however much they love it. Scotland's loss will be
Canada's gain, find Scots fit home who not unnaturally regret
the movement of so many Highland families from their midst
will have some consolation from the fact that their fine
national traditions and old Scottish customs will be remembered
and continued in the new colonies abroad. And Pipe-Major
John MacMillan will have to look after his Laurels. Other pipe
bands are sure to spring up in Alberta.

SCOTLAND IN CAN AD A.—HARRIS TWEED
FROM ALBERTA.
By Keith  Morris.
In the near future the skirl of the bagpipes from a Scottish-
Canadian band, dressed in full Highland costume, may be
heard in the hills and dales of Old Scotland. For Pipe-Major
John MacMillan, a Scot from the Hebrides, now a prosperous
and contented settler at the Clan Donald Colony, Alberta, is
training twenty of his fellow Scotsmen, members of the same
colony, to become proficient players.
In many other ways, too, the customs of old Scotland are
being maintained by this Celtic community on the prairie of
Western Canada. The Rev. A. MacDonell, Managing
Director of the Scottish Immigrant Aid Society, who organised
the Clan Donald Colony, and is both its " Father " and
friend, states that arrangements are under way for the establishment of a carding mill. Most of the women members of
the colony took out their spinning wheels with them, and
some their hand looms, and already Plarris homespun tweed,
made by Hebridean hands, has been sold to the Hudson's
Bay Company. But this picturesque industry is only in its
infancy, and when the carding mill is in full swing, woollen
blankets and other wider material will be made. One
Edmonton merchant has given _j400 to Father MacDonell to
assist in the establishment of the mill, which will need
£2,000 for its completion. " This carding mill will," Father
MacDonell says, " get the settlers into the way of keeping a
few sheep on each farm, and the women-folk will be able to
get an income of their own, which will add to their contentment. All the children are happy, and revel in the freedom
of Canadian life.
"Cosy and Comfortable."
" They were delighted with the cottages provided for
them, which they described as very cosy and comfortable
and well equipped for the Canadian winter. Some of the
settlers who had gone out before, and had secured a vear or
two of training in Canadian farming methods, have fiftv to
sixty acres of their land ready for seeding next spring. During the harvest season they worked for other farmers, taking
their own horses and rack. In this way they earned over ^20 per
month, and those of the settlers who had sons of working
age made quite a bit of money this way, which will be very
useful to them.
" Each family is provided by the .Scottish Immigrant
Aid Society with two horses, but many of the settlers have
managed to get another two horses for themselves. Two cows
are also provided, and, in some cases, three, or more. Twentv-
five hens are also included in the stock, and farming equipment, such as a wagon, breaking plough, harrow, mowers,
etc., and the smaller implements. In fact, every provision,
in addition to the land, is made for the settlers in assisting
them to success and prosperitv." A church and hall have
been built; the latter on weekdays is used for pipe practice
and other social amenities of a Scottish nature. When the
carding mill is working pow-er for electric light will be
secured, and this will add to the brightness of the houses.
Red Deer is the central point for the various Clan Donald
communities, and the colony has a big training farm at this
place.
A New Colony.
The Scottish Immigrant Aid Society is establishing
another Clan Donald colony at Saddle Lake, near St. Paul de
Metis, in Alberta, and Father MacDonell is now in this
country in connection with the new settlement arrangements.
Eight thousand acres of land are available and fifty cottages
are being erected as a nucleus.
And Pipe-Major John MacMillan will have to look after
his laurels. Other pipe bands are sure to spring up in
Alberta.
" In the British Empire to-day, only one person out of
every thirty-five is a white."—Mr. Arnold Williams.
" Mr. TaSCHerEau'S stay in London was marked by circumstances which attest his high personal reputation and the
? prestige which the Province of Quebec enjoys in the Old
Country. The welcome extended to him was exceptional in
scope and cordiality."—Montreal " Gazette."
" There is no isolation when the lumberman or farmer
on his lonely outpost can hear the finest music from metropolitan centres, when he is kept in constant touch with the
doings of the day, educational and otherwise. The key-
points of this activity are the radio stations, and Canada has
many good ones."—Vancouver Province.
" The Irish Free State sends a minister to Washington,
but Washington sends only consuls to Dublin, anything of
high political importance being entrusted to the United
States ambassador at London. The arrangement puts the
Irish Free State in a peculiar, if not an inferior position, and
if it is adopted in Canada's case will not add much to this
country's status among the nations."—Toronto Globe.
WHAT WOMEN WANT TO KNOW.
Readers desirous of information on matters of interest
to prospective women settlers and their relatives may write
to the Editor, The Canadian Gazette, 330, Gresham House,.
Old Broad Street, London, E.C.
Questions must be briefly and clearly stated.
Only questions of general interest will be answered in
this column. Others will be answered by post if a stamped
and addressed envelope is enclosed.
World's Education Congress at Toronto, 1927.
" I should like to attend this Conference which is to
take place next August. Can you tell me if any arrangements
are likely to be niade for a party of teachers to go there?"
I understand that the National Union of Teachers is
arranging a tour to Canada to enable a party of secondary
and elementary teachers, representatives of Education
Authorities and others interested in education to spend a
week in Toronto (Aug. 7-12). The final arrangements are
not yet complete but the party will sail from Liverpool on
July 22 by the C.P.R. liner Marloch, and will return on Aug.
17 by the Empress of Scotland, arriving at Southampton Aug.
23. An excellent programme has been mapped out, including visits to Niagara Falls, the Lake of the Thousand Isles,
etc. Further particulars as to cost, accommodation, etc., may
be obtained from Mr. Harry Smith, N.U.T., Hamilton House,
Mabledon Place, London, W.C.L
Widow and Boy of 15.
" Before my marriage I was a teacher, and now I am a
widow aged 40, with a boy of 15 who wants an outdoor life,
and a tiny income. Do you advise me to go to Canada ? I
want, of course, to do the best for my son, who is a strong,
active, reliable sort of person."
I am inclined to think that if you yourself are strong and
can adapt yourself to new conditions, it would be quite satisfactory for you both to go out, and ever so much better for
your son to have you in the country even if at first you cannot actually be together. He would probably be eligible for
the Ontario Scheme for Boy p^arm Learners, particulars of
which can be obtained from the Agent-General for Ontario,
163, Strand, London, W.C.2. Perhaps after a couple of
years on a farm during which time the boy would know if he
really liked the work and life, he might go to an Agricultural
College or continue on a farm until he is in a position to have
his own. There are many facilities for acquiring a farm
without an initial outlay of much capital. As for yourself,
you might get a temporary post as teacher near your son's
farm, or household work near, if you are willing to do such.
Write first to the Agent-General for Ontario, as his office may
be able to help you both. As you do not want to go West
the Province of Ontario would be a verv good place for vou
both.
Examination in  Housekeeping  and   Cookery for
Women Household Workers.
" I believe it is helpful for a girl who is going out to
Canada to have some kind of certificate for efficiency. Can
you tell me who grants such a certificate and under what
conditions ?"
Under the Empire Settlement Act, assisted passages are
available for those accepted by the Dominion Authorities as
capable of doing domestic work. In order to prove the capability of would-be women settlers (househould workers only),
the Society for the Oversea Settlement of British Women holds
a Test Examination from time to time and awards certificates
to successful candidates. All particulars may be obtained
from Miss Franklin, S.O.S.B.W., Caxton House (West Block),
Tothill Street, London, S.W.I.
" The New York State Commission has been in Canada
to discover how our dealings with criminals bring so much
more satisfactory results than the American method."—
Canadian Press.
" Go ahead. Do not lose your freshness, do not lose
your energy, your faith, your glorious wish to succeed. Just
try, though by degrees, to learn that money is not everything."—Queen Marie of Roumania to Canadians.
" The modern Canadian poet already reveals a degree of
disciplined self-awareness which few of his predecessors
possessed. We find emotional expansiveness accepting the
discipline of  self-criticism."—Times  Literary Supplement.
" The report of the Imperial Conference is a report not a
law. As Premier King said once about a similar but lesser
matter of government, it is not a chart, but merely sailing
directions. These sailing directions simply put into words the
direction in which the Empire has been sailing, anyhow."—
Montreal Standard.
IN the discussions over the Cattle Embargo it has
been admitted that Canadian Cattle are among
the healthiest in the world. This fact should be of
importance to consumers of dairy products.
^ANADIAN Cattle are famous for
rapid gains on good grazing. BELFAST To CANADA.

To Agents
CLAN DONALD COLONY
With the many emigration schemes in force at the
present time many Agents are perhaps in a quandary as to
deciding what is best to advise their clients.
The enclosed Folder in regard to the Clan Donald
Colony in Western Canada is self explanatory.
■
The Clan Donald Colony has been organised by Father
MacDonell fcr the purpose of giving a chance to Farmers and
experienced farm hands to settle on a Farm of their own without
delay, and with excellent prospects of success, because they
will not be overburdened with too much debt.
The Land will be acquired by the Settlers at less
than half the usual price, namely at about £1 an acre and 30
years are allowed for payment - a loan of £200 is advanced for
stock and equipment and a Cottage of 4 rooms, also a Barn to
hold 4 Horses and 6 Cows are built.
The Society will have on the Ground 2 to 6 Cows, 2
Horses, a Sow and 25 Hens - a Wagon, plough, Harrows, Mower,
Hayrake and other implements, besides having 10 acres already
broken when the Settlers arrive or shortly afterwards.
Every effort is made to give the Settler a good
start, but he must be a worker and experienced so that he can

(ALL    RATES    QUOTED    ARE    SUBJECT    TO    REVISION    WITH    OR    WITHOUT    NOTICE    UNTIL    ACTUAL     ENGAGEMENT    IS    MADE.)

take hold right away.   He must realise that he is going to land
which he gets the opportunity of developing and not to a Farm
already developed.  He has the advantage of the richness of
virgin soil, and avoids the excessive burden of paying for the
other man's work and development of many years.
This very simple and clean cut settlement scheme will
appeal to all Roman Catholics contemplating migration.
We would particularly point out that the existing
reduced passage rates to Canada are available for all Applicants
accepted for Clan Donald Colony, and, as an additional inducement,
in special cases passage money will be loaned.
Father MacDonell will accept single men who are farm
workers, and also single women for domestic work at the reduced
passage rates.
The party will be organised and personally conducted by
Father MacDonell and will sail from Belfast at the end of April.
We therefore, advise all Agents who have suitable applicants in
view to inform us by sending applications to this Office on the
usual forms for families, single men and domestics.  please
endorse these forms "CLAN DONALD COLONY."
Father MacDonell will interview your applicants at their
homes at an early date, and it is his aim to settle them where they
will be sure of the benefits of Church and School.
We rely on the hearty co-operation of our Agents in this
scheme.
Yours faithfully,

to rush this in order that they may have time to get
ready for early sailing.
Also, do you recollect** me writing John or
yourself about getting two boys out here from Ireland—
Richard and Robert Martin, Care Dr. MacKay, Ballyboggie,
Clough, County Antrim, Ireland.  These two lads were
orphans and their guardians in Ireland are unwilling
to release them; but an order is being brought out in
court by an Aunt here for their release, who intends
to look after them here.  These two boys have also two
sisters here and two sisters still at home.  The names
of the two at home are:  Annie Bartin (18) and Isabella
Martin (15).  This same Ant, Mrs. Byrne, is ready to
find employment for the girls and look after them with
motherly care.  Is it possible that Mr. Thomas Scotland
could take this matter up and expedite matters for the
convenience of a June sailing.
