IS BEING WASTED
Dominion Agent Tells of Immi-
gratlon Frauds Practiced on
Special to The Globe.
, DULUTH, Minn., Dec. Accord
ing to a statement made by J. H. M.
Parker, Canadian government agent
In charge of immigration here, three
times: as much money as. is necessary
is -spent annually by the Dominion
government in sending men,: women
and children- into . Canada from 7 the
United States, and even then the re
sults obtained ought to be doubled if
the work is conducted in a proper way
on a more economical basis.
"Hundreds of thousands of dollars
have been expended by the Canadian
government in securing settlers for
the Dominion from the United States."
said Mr. Parker, "and a goodly por
tion of this money has been wasted.
I could take one-third of the amount
and double the immigration. This de
plorable state of affairs is due to the
fact that out of the seventeen Cana
dian government agents now located
in the United States only five are do
ing-active work. The others are sim
ply drawing the salary that is paid
them by the government and the work
that is being done through their of
fles is the work of sub-agents who re
ceive so much per capita from the gov
ernment for immigrants sent into the
"The records speak for themselves
in these" cases. In one particular in
stance an agent was located at In
dianapolis, Ind., for five years, and
during that time he sent only three men
into Canada. The men who are doing
the active work besides myself are M.
V. Mclnness, of Detroit;- J. C."Craw
ford, of Kansas -City; B. Davies, of
Great Falls, Mont., "who, for several
- years, was located at St. Paul, Minn.;
C. O. Swanson, traveling Scandinavian
"It is a well known fact that many
of the immigration agents who do not
care to exert themselves appoint sub-
agents and these -agents abuse the
confidence that is placed "in them.
They allow anyone the privilege of the
railroad rates extended through the
immigration offices, whether they are
going into Canada on business or
pleasure. The immigration agent is
paid a salary, but the sub-agent relies
entirely on his fees. For each male
immigrant sent from the United States
he receives $3, for each female $2 and
for every child $1? and this money
must come out of the pocket of the
Canadian government.. The certificate
Issued to an immigrant entitles him to
one-third fare en the Canadian Pacific
railroad and * this reduction is at
tractive to many who go to Canada on
business or pleasure. "_
'"For instance, if you go to an im
migration, sub-agent and say that you
wish to go to Canada to look at some
land, he will issue you a certificate
that entitles you to a reduction in rail
road fare, and you pay him three dol-
lars. Then, perhaps, you go to Winni
peg and visit friends, never intending
to look at lands. The government is
out $3 _ and the railroad is out a con
siderable sum. The amount looks
small, but it figures up .to thousands
of dollars. ,
"The majority of the immigration
agents,don't know anything about the
business and are, merely political fig
ure heads, appointed by "the political
party in power because they have a
political pull. The resources :- of the
Northwest Territory also have been
handed over to the political parties.
"I have just completed my annual
trip as immigration agent through the
territory, and I find a deplorable state
:of affairs. Alberta and Western Can
ada have a coal bearing strata \ that
could supply the world's furnaces for
the next 200 years, but farmers living
within two miles of the mines are com
pelled to pay $5 a ton for lignite- coal,
while here in Duluth, more than 1,200
miles from the nearest' coal fields, we
pay the same price for the same qual
ity of coal. "In Alberta and vicinity
consumers pay 50 cents a gallon for
kerosene oil, and we pay from 15 to 18
cents here. Regarding lumber, right
at the doors of the camps in the North-
west - Territory, a charge of from $22
to $40 a thousand is made, while for
the same grade in Duluth it can be
purchased at from $10 to $20. And all
this because prices are dictated by the
political party in control.
"Although I am a Candadian.-I am
thoroughly disgusted with the " way
things are handled. : Some day all the
blame for exorbitant prices- to the
railway companies, but the political
parties are behind the railways."
MAN BLOWS OUT GAS.
K. Kolstad and A. M. Erickson Found
Dead in Superior Hotel.
Special to The Globe.
SUPERIOR, Wis., B Dec. 27.—The
murder theory was first advanced this
morning when Kristen Kolstad and A.
M. Erickson were dead from gas as
phyxiation in', Courtney's hotel. The
fact that a man giving the name of
Christ Noen went "to the room with
the men and then left led to the mur
der, theory. But the door was "locked
on the Inside when the men were
found, so there is believed to be noth
ing to the murder theory. It looks as
though one of the men had simply
blown out the gas. _. y. ? f

FOUGHT IN NAVY; DIES
IN RAILWAY WRECK
Frank E. Knowles, Brave Min
neapolis Boy, Killed in a ?
• "Aiding in the capture of Admiral
Cervera in the Spanish-American war,
later participating in the battles to
pacify the Filipinos,? subsequently go
ing to China to defend the Americans
against the Boxers and finally meet
ing death in a railway collision, was
the experience of Frank E. Knowles,
the Minneapolis boy -who was buried at
Hillside cemetery Saturday afternoon.
\ Young Knowles had been employed
as a brakeman on the Northern Pa
cific road, and last Wednesday had his
life crushed out in a"""wreck at Elk ,
When the Spanish-American war
broke out Frank Knowles, who at the
time of his death was twenty-six years
old, was among the first to volunteer
from Minneapolis. ;_y •
; When a call was 'r'a.d*? for navy re
cruits he was among the first to re
spond, and at St. Paul, where pros
pective sailors were being received,
joined the navy as a fireman. He was
assigned to the cruiser New Orleans
and was soon off for Cuba. -X
Some time after the New Orleans
had reached Santiago, the ship's coal .
supply became depleted, and orders'
were given to proceed to Key "West
for a fresh supply of fuel. A launch
was left behind to serve as a packet
and among its crew was the Minne
apolis boy. The New Orleans-had"
been away but a short time, when the
. Spanish fleet was lighted. ' The Ore
gon picked up the little party in the
launch, and fireman Knowles partici
pated in the battle.
After the capture of Admiral- Cer
vera he went to New York, later to
join his old cruiser, the New Orleans,
which then sailed for Porto Rico.
Knowles was transferred to the Solace,
which carried him to the Philippines.
Later he was transferred to the gun
With the Filipinos practically paci
fied word was received that an upris
ing of Boxers in China threatened the
lives of Americans and other foreign
ers and the Yorktown was ordered to
make haste for Che Fu.
With others of the Yorktown's crew
Knowles took an active part in bring
ing quiet at Che Fu. While at Shang
hai the Minneapolis boy met Consul
General Goodnow and was offered a
position, but declined, as he desired to
return home with the rest of the crew.
He served three years and two months.
