WAITING FOR THE
END OF THE WHO
"Then Take Advantage of the
Opportunities in Canada."
(Contributed by W J. Whlto, of tho
Department of tho Interior,
I strolled into a bank In ono of the
cities of tho west a short time ago and
tho bank manager said "after tho
war, the Canadians should be pro
pared for a great lnllux of people
Tho crops that tho western Canadian
farms havo produced In 1915, and the
wealth that tho farmers have had
thrust upon theni by tho high price
of grain, will rnako farm lands valu

showing It mado In subscribing over

waB asked as a war loan, the brav
ery, courage and hardihood of tho sol
diers who havo fought tho battles In
Flanders, It Is Just wonderful," and
my enthusiastic bankor grew eloquent.
Cno might havo thought ho was a sub
sidized booster for Canada. "But," ho
said "they won't go until after tho
"Well, now, Mr. , why wait un
til after tho war? If all you say be
truo, and you have said nothing yet
of the wonderful bank clearings of
Canada today, nothing of tho fact that
tho immonso grain crop of Western
Canada this year has given to every
man, woman and child In that coun
try, over three hundred dollars per
head, why wait until after tho war:
Aftor tho war, under such conditions
as you have pictured (and which are
real) land values will go up, prices
will increase. Advantago should bo

agricultural lands can bo had today.

In excellent communities for from llf

climate Is good and will bo no better

"What about conscription, though?
Is there not a danger ,from conscrip
tion, and should I advise any to go
there now, would they not have to
face it? Then too, there is the report
that thero is a heavy war tax on
1 was surprised to learn that these
old yarns, stories that I thought had
been exploded long ago, were still do
Ing duty in many parts of tho United
BtateB, and that a gentleman of tho
wide learning of my friend, was in
. clined to believe thom.
"Conscription!" 1 said. "With Can
Ada contributing 250,000 men voluntari
ly enlisted, why conscription? Thero
Is no conscription in Canada, and
nelthor will there be. It is not need
ed. In any case no legislation could
be passed by the Dominion Parliament
which would impose military service
upon people who are not citizens of
Canada, either by birth or naturaliza
tion. Settlers from tho United States
could not become naturalized British
subjects until they had resided In
Canada continuously for three years,"
I quoted from oillcial documents.
"In tho first few months of the wai
I clearly stated that thero would not
be conscription in Canada. 1 ropeat
that statement today."
"And then. as to taxes," I continued,
quoting again from oillcial authority,
"All taxes levied by tho Federal Gov
ernment tako tho Indirect form of cub
toms excise and inland revenue du
ties. It is untruo that farmors are
paying direct war-tax levies and no
Intending settlwr need hesitate to
come tc Canada on this account
"Ofllcial denials should convinco you
that all apprehensions which have
been making somo would-bo-settlers
from tho United States hesitate to
make a change while tho war lasts
are without foundation. With tbeso
misunderstandings cleared up, the
present war conditions even becomo
an added Inducement to settlement in
any part of tho provinces of western
Canada, inasmuch as war prices and
1 keen demands for all manner of farm
products afford tho farmer a special
opportunity to make money

1 could have continued, and told him
of tho fortunes that had been made In
tho season of 1915, out of farming,
wheat growing, oat growing, barley
crowing, cattlo raising, dairying and
mixed farming. I could havo told
him of an Ottawa (Canada) syndicate
that had a yield of 130 bushels or
Data per acre from their farm at Wain
wrlght and from 60 acres of wheat
Held they threshed over CO bushels per
acre. Theso yields while pheuomenal,
wore repeated In many portions of
western Canada. It was Interesting to
Inform him that tho average yield of
spring wheat in Saskatchewan was
25.16 bushels per acre; Manitoba, 26,3
bushols; in Alberta, 36.16 bushels,
and over the three provinces there was

the modern two-plcco tailored suit

clever adaptation, even ot tho light

character by conforming to tho lines
