Mr. Magrath here asked Mr, Sim- mons why he did not get the govern- ment to toe the mark and remedy these evils. "That is what I ani going to Ot- Jxxm the servant, of any company. And the of. Magrath and the other youth towns will-vote to me there to fight this thing out and get them their rights. I have only Kturted this aflajr and after Mr. Ames has given his picture show will deal with it more fully. I am pre- pared to go to Raymond and the other towns to discugs the matter with the water users concerned." Owing the crowded state of our columns the report of the re- mainder ,of Mr. Simmons' speech deal ing" with the School Uook contract, is held over until tomorrow.

Lftl't Tea is sold only ia Letkbridge by THE BE NT LEY CO. LTD. will Mr. Borden, or Mr. Magrath, or Mr. Ives say what the fair terms are. Roblin says he does not want the lands but wants the same generous treatment as these provinces got. McBride has expressed himself simi- larly. Last year Alberta alone vot- ed while Haul tain in his last year had less -than for the whole North-West, British Col- umbia gets from her lauds, minerals and timber, etc., but it costs to administer it. The Dominion government does not ad- minister "the lands, for revenue, but for development by the people, who can have.'free homesteads andf pre- emptions at per acre. This Is the policy that will build up the western provinces. The other policy would mean selling- the lands for revenue. It would mean the taking on of the expenditure for immigration, police railway buildings and other now carried by the federal government at no expense to the 1 provinces. "The government has Ixxm accusec of .graft in dealing with the public lands. .Governments are frequently the .victims of graft rather" than the instigators of it and it is a griev- ance to me that even a Liberal go- vcrnmeut had.on two occasions giver the people's land .to corporations ev en -torthe Railway, Irriga tion.

He remarked that Mr. Ames tras 'expected along with his to give vivid pictures of- the horrible 'deeds of the Laurier" government and anticipation of the show thought he would give a short preliminary tej .give him a start aiicl he hoped Mr. Ames would tako his text. At future time he .would1, speak more ful- ly of lands, land grants, and land grafts. Mr. Magrath's Lands "In only two instances has the Li- beral government, followed the Con- 'servative policy of giving the public lands 'away. The government guyc the grant to the AllMirta' Railway Irrigation Co. for.building the turkey-trail from Dunmorc. The gave, the A. R. T. acres for carrying on exten- sions.

Mr. Magrath with the permission jf the chairman asked Mr. Simmons, 'Did you say that WE got the Irri- gation Act Jn reply Mr. Simmons stated, that two men, Joh Dennis and C. A.

Mrs. Ritchie knows what life is and intends to have her entire quarter section under cultiva- tion ia the near future. S. A.

"Although the season has been hot and comparatively saiil Mr. Wright, "crops will yield a fair average throughout this dis- trict." it-is very gratifying to learn that the Canada West Coal Co., and Dug- gin Huntroids Co. mines have again resumed activity.

The A. R. I. Co. had gone to Mr. Sifton, then 'Minister of the In- terior, and told what they were doing and asked for more land, that they could show him what more they would do. Arid he was ashamed to say that the government had granted the company another half million acres at practically a.dollar an acre on condition of certain works being done. The company did not cio these, had misrepresented the plans which showed ditches running where water could not run. These are some of the things that he pro- posed making a part of his program of campaign and he wished to, discuss them on the public platform with Mr. 3fagrath, Mr. Ames, or any other Conservative. Crossings over Ditches Speaking of .the crossings over the ditches on theVoad allowances, Mr. Simmons said that the Act rcquirod the Company to build bridg- es and keep them in repair over all ditches. But they were very Ingenious. Another clause said that while under construction the Company snail build suitable bridges. The company now says that the government should build the bridges over the completed ditches. The result is that government money that should be put on roads is spent in building bridges over these dttches ('omplnints were constantly coming rods is extensively interested in the manufacture of steel in England and is touring this country .merely for recreation arid pleasure.
