This resolution to a certain extent .Resolution No. .advocating as it does a specific me- thod of carrying on a campaign of education. I'roj1. Fairiield said that irrigation farming means intensive farming, which is another term for special- farming, and therefore requires special instruction and the object of this resolution is to provide that special instruction. Forest lieservat'on A most important matter was in- troduced by a resolution signed by S. Oentiis and II. .Bruce, as fol- lows That t.he be pc-titionod to cause a forest reserva- tion to be made covering the entire east slope- and higher foothills of the Itocky Mountains, and within the railway belt of British Columbia, in order to present the deforestation of this area, leading to the rapid melt- inii- of the a.i- the headwaters of the mountain streams, thus causing destructive floods and wasting the water required for irrigation in Sou- thern Alberta. In talking to this resolution .1. S. Dennis was discussjiig u matter that lie has personally interested in for a nurnljtT of years, and a matter upon which he feels very strongly. That, parr of Kastern Slope that does not lie within the forest reservation was at one time a parr of the great preserve but for some Kpotena if? Kootenay ash- pan is exception- ally large.

GERMAN THE SHOEMAN Is a. Practical Man. You Get the Benefit reason the go', eminent saw fit to re- move the reservation Mr Dennis thinks that it is of vital importance, to Southern Alberta that this tract be included in the preserve. Unless the forests at. The heads of the stream preserved .the, money we spend on irrigation will largely be wasted, so closely related .are the questions of forest presvrvjti ion and irrigation. If these forests are not preserved the water supply be considerably lessened. Besides. we would have tioods at certain periods and conse- quent waste of water. Then there is UK- other side of the question which in this case is scvGirrJiiry with Mr. Dennis, the standpoint of pre- serving the forest for itself. Mr. Kuii.'loiph Bruce endorsed 'Mr. Dennis' remarks. In his own exper- ience ha has noticed tho effect of de- fo.-'-'siation of the slopes on th- v-'n.- ter supply. In localivi.js t.he effect is quite marked. Mr. IVarci- spoke of the necessity for makin-v provision for reservoirs in certain places. Kspecially should care be tak.'tl wlu-n grant charters to railways to see that these rail- ways in following the lakes 'and str-'ams should be so built as not to interfere with these reservations. He quoted several instances to show where railways previously built were a great hindrance to the .maintenajice of proper reservoirs. As his re- marks were directed to M.r.
