No, nothing of the kind. There is no German taught there. If the hon. gentleman would go out there and live for about three years, he would know something about the country. A little trip through the West once in a while does not give one very much knowledge of it. The point I was making was that it is of no benefit to the country, or to anybody, to get people in unless they become successful and stay there. Neither is it a good plan to make it too easy for them to come into the country. We want the right class of settlers, who know some effort is required on their part, and who know they can make a success of it if they put forth the effort. If, however, they are up against heavy land payments, which come too fast, they will simply get broken-hearted and leave the country, and the result will be a worse state of affairs than before.
