CANADA'S IMMIGRATION1 PRESIDENT SIGNS
Increased by About Sixty Per
Cent in Past Six Months.
That Canada Is nt war is now tflore
fully appreciated on this side of tlie
boundary line, now that the United
States has stepped alongside its north-
ern neighbor and linked hands in the |
great struggle for a freer democracy
throughout the civilized world. As a
result of this a greater interest than
ever is seen in the mutual effort to
develop both the United States and
Canada. Recently, just before the
time that the United States declared
Its intention to enter the contest and
contribute of its resources to the de- (
feat of the autocracy, whose design
was to permeate the world. Western
Canada ma<fe an appeal for farm labor
to till the fields and prepare the soil
for the crops of grain that were nec-
essary to feed the fighting forces and
keep up the requirements necessary
for the Allies. The responses were so
great that before half'the time limit
expired, over six thousand laborers
were secured. This was not sufllcient,
but once the United States was de-
clared to be in a condition of war, and
farm labor required here to meet any
exigency as to short rations that might
arise, the sister to the north, withdrew
from attempts, which might mean a
restriction of the farm labor supply j
In the United States. But even with
this it is thought Canada will now be
fairly well supplied.
Apart, however, from the farm laboi
proposition, it is gratifying from both
a United States and Canadian point of
view that the immigration of farmers
to take up homestead lands and to pur-
chase improved and unimproved land
In Canada, has shown such a wonder-
ful increase in the past three months.
The great struggle for increasing the
food supply has a broader and greater
significance than ever. The food must ]
come into existence, whether the rich
soils of the United States or those of
Canada be the factor.
It is altogether probable that the ac-
tion of the Canadian Government in
taking the duty off wheat going into
Canada, the? automatically lifting the
duty off that coining Into tlie United
States, may not be responsible for an
Division Under Command
Major General Pershing.

President Issues Proclamation.
President Wilson's proclamation, put-
ting into effect the selective draft pro-
vision of the war army bill, signed last
night, follows in part:
"A proclamation by the president of
the I'nitod States:
44Whereas, Congress has enacted and
the president has on the 1stli day of
May, one thousand nine hundred and
seventeeen, approved a law which con-
tains the following provisions:
"Section 5. That all male persons be-
tween the ages of twenty-one and
thirty, both inclusive, shall be subject
to registration in accordance with reg-
ulations to be prescribed by the presi-
dent; and upon proclamation by the
president or other public notice given

$15 to $.° 5 an acre, is an appeal that
is being responded to by farmers who
are now renting high-priced lands, is
another reason for expecting an In-
creasing number of farmers from the
Mr. W. L>. Scott, Superintendent of
Immigration at Ottawa, Canada, re-
cently gave out figures concerning im-
migration from the United States,
which shows that the increase in the j lin(| iJny person who shall wi
shall b<* the'duty of all persons of the
designated ages, except officers and en-
listed men of the regular army, the
navy and the National Guard and naval
militia while in the service « f the
United States, to pre--nt tia-mselves
for and submit to registration under
the provisions of this act, and every
such person shall be deemed to have
notice of the requirements of this act
upon the publication of said proclama-
tion or other notice as aforoaid given
by the president or by hi< direction:
past three or four months was 00 per
cent over the same period last year,
and Mr. Scott forecasts that, during the
calendar year of 1017 there will be
over one hundred per cent increase
and be much heavier than for many
yea:s past. Mr. Scott do lares that
already this spring more settlers' ef-
fects have entered Canada than
crossed during the whole of last year,
and the movement lias just merely
The new settlers are coming from
numerous states through the ports of
Emerson, North Portal and Coutts, as
well as from Oregon and Washington,
through Kingsgate and Vancouver.
There arrived in Saskatchewan dur-
ing the year ending December 31, 101(1,
a total of 8,136 persons as compared
with 5,812 during the twelve months
previous. At the same time nearly
twice as many immigrants passed
through the immigration department
at Edmonton, Alberta, in the last
twelve months as for the same period
of the year before.
The number of settlers from Eastern
Canada migrating to the west also in-
creased. From January 1 to March 31,
1017, the number of cars of stock that
passed through the Winnipeg yards
was 750, as compared with 361 last
year. A fair estimate of the value of
each car would lie about $2,000, which j in to
means that the west has secured addi-
tional live stock to the value of-$150,-
000 or more, during the first three
months of 1017. not taking into account
that brought in by immigrants from
the United States.—Advertisement.
