At the meeting of the Pender's Grove Settlers' Association, held at the Pen der's Grove hall on Wednesday evening, the president (Mr. Phillips) presiding, the administration of the Closer Settle ment Board came in for some drastic criticism. Mr. Saxe (secretary) said that from the remarks made by the Minister of Lands (Mr. Lawson) there seemed a promise of something at last being done to relieve the settlers from the effects of clause 69 of the Closer Settlement &nbsp; Act. For years they had been battling to have this most obnoxious Clause repealed, and Parliament seemed to be now waking up to the fact that it was contrary to the terms and conditions on which they took up their holdings. They must see to it that the settlers had pro per representation on the proposed &nbsp; Royal commission. ' Mr. F.
