SUNBEAMS FROW eUCUMBERS ||r!HE.POLICY of the Michener opposition, if it can* be entitled k* to: that word, is clearly a negative one.- It was defined by nier Sif ton when speaking at High River. It did not require fiauy-words, hut was ^easily condensed in one sentence: "Don't ^o into debt," but it was never s^id "don't build railroads and )ridges;6r put:in telephones." "Jln other words the Opposition jjiirges,'without showing how it isjb be done, the making of bricks ^^thout'Straw, or, better still, if it should receive the support of ; electorate, it would enter into that highly futile labor of ex-aoting'sunbeamsout of cucumbers. The process may be amus-Jgv and'interesting, no douBt, to the parties directly concerned, luf it cannot be said that it is one-which the people would care to itch;^;^-^' , ^ M comparison to this the Sif ton administration, while not fdvancing any ingenious .or miraculous process for furthering ae? development of> the Province; is content to place its records listhis.directionbefore the electors and to rely on these for their lupport'^Thesc^'^e for^ to see in railroad extensibn, iadways'i^l^uUt, bridgesr^erected, and telepho|ie lilies widely ex-ided,'-' ,. . , With regard to the railway qu?!stion,^the statement made by rfiSifton deserves attention. The'fact that the Government i..aranteed the bonds of the branch lines of' two railway com-!jaiues_;)iadiorced the third cortjpap with like rapidity. ^eJJrailways would within the n0xf year reach all thie southern itowas and; cities, many of the lines-being already graded.

The ijdy objection raisedi which is puerile m.its mature, is to the debt, "^itji regard to this Mr. Sifton Has stated that during the last yjEtos Alberta had spent the sum .of thirty-three mDlions, himdred thousand and thirtyreight dollars at a cost of $l,-.JO^in the same time the Conservative Gcjvemment of Mani-BD^a;spent only $26,813.'e89 at a cost of ?1,348,290.

The. comparison is. helpful in showing E|t^>Alberta in giviiig the peopkjia'full-retum'for their money, at iess'cost than Mamtoba-was-jfife,Ttiore economical of the two pv|rmnents. ............... |Th(^^oUcy of the Goveramed^ with regard to the opening'up ae l^rovince by roadways is to spend one million and a half oiaifs every year for-the nest;flye-yearSk.

If tlie.farmers,, wdiild only Uiink of the number of times they went to the elevator this j^ast winter and were given i)rices for their oats and wheat which made farming a losing proposition, they AVould realize just what the opposition of tlic Bennetts, Michencrs ,and others mean to thera. The farnfiers have tlieir chance for.revengCr These fellows were not able to carry Alberta in the Federal elections for restricted markets. But should they win out on the 17th-the eastern interests would immediately hail it^as an evidence of a djang sentiment in favor of wider markets. Every intelligent farmer should renlira his duty in the matter, and vote for the Liberal candidate. What in tlie world is the use of fighting so hard for widei- markets and.then laying down to the men who helped do the throttling? A-v'oleJor a Sif ton candidate means a voteto help get wider markets. A vote for a Michener candidate means; a vote for the eastern interests. Farmers, think well over the facts. It means much to tlie future of this country. YES, THINK IT OVER E\1DENTLY the Michener meeting here-the otlier night w'as not the "grand success" which the local GonservatiVeS 'iui--ticipated, so that now the Revolutionary Bonfire et al must be drafted into service to sec if he cannot oft'Set what the putative leader did, find arouse a httle more enthusiasm in the ranks of the "glummers." Mr, Michener's own orgaij. takes liim to task in an editorial the day following: "At his- mass meeting the other night Mr. Michener was too modest when he suggested that imder Conservative rule provincial afl'airs could not be worse than they are undei- Siftonism. HE SHOULD HAVE STATED: THE CASE FROM THE POSITIVE RATHER THAN THE NEGATIVE." (April 4th, 2nd col. Editorial page.) Thus the gallarit leader stands corrected. He is "too modesty" too quiet, does not put enough gingerinto his stuff. Avaunt thoti "Modiste" and let us have a cdnflagration from the one and only Revolutionary Bonfire Bennett. Worse and more of it. In the same editorial and the same c^  ' Hear the.Hon./A. L. Sifton. at the Majestijj Thursday, night, and cheer for a nian who stands for a progressive Province.
