Scarcely a day that the great metropolitan dailies do not contain something about the province. Tho Urcnlng Standard published the follo'ivlng story from the premier un- der the caption, "Two Towns in a The lion. Arthur Sifton, prc- 'mier of Alberta, who has just.arrived in London, speaks in terms of the wonderful growth of Alberta. It is perhaps difficult to grasp tho activity existing In the province, but some Idea or the rapidity of Its de- velopment may be gathered from th" fact that last year acres wer taken up by settlers even- day the year, and that two new town sprang into being each week, whll for every school day in the provlnc one new school was opened. "I said Mr. Sifton to one o our representatives, "that we ma legitimately describe Alberta as th 'wonder child' of Canada. With Sat katchcwan it is the twin youngest pro vince of the Dominion, and it occupies i greater area than any country ii with the exception of Russia a matter of fact, it is greater In rea than the united territories o lermany, Franco, and Austria-Hun ai'y. H is more than twice the size f Great Britain and Ireland. "1 have always said that all Al- erta required to make the utmost se of its natural resources were facilities and settlers. And are now finding both. The prln- ipal railways running through Al- erta are tho Canadian Northern, the anadian Pacific, and the Grand runk, and by the end of the year we mil have added another 700 miles rait within the province, which ves us a higher proportion of in- than any other province in the ominion. How Populaiion Grows for settlers, during the past ten years the number of people en- tering Canada with Alberta Tor theii destination was roughly Las year, however. we broke all records the total number being Ten years ago Alberta could only boast of inhabitants. Today we about villages are brought cultivation as well 'as the linineniie possibility's of the fut- ure, can be gathered from the fact that the total area now under culti- vation for grain is acres. In 1907 the total yield of grain in the province was bushels while this year bushels have been gathered 111. Experimental Farms "Tile Department of Aericillturi. Is now operating seven demonstration Innns in Alberta, and at three of -hose farms schools of agriculture are lelng started where a'u up-to-date iractlcal agricultural education will ie given to boys, as woll as courses in lomestic science and household econ- 'my for girl's. The farms, too, pro vide all settlers with Infovmatlon free ol' charge. "Among other of Alberta's natural advantages Is the natural gas supply. This Is now properly piped and laid out. and In the district bounded hy Medicine Hal, Lnthbridgo. Jlnclec-d and Calgary, all villages, towns'anc cities can bo supplied with light, hea and power from this source, and man} of the farms along hundreds ol miles of line enjoy .the same aiivnn. tages. Large fields have been dlscov. also in tho northern portion of he province, which will socn be util- zcd in the same way. "In addition, there is an endless chain of coal running under almost he whole bitu- minous coal, and rea- sonable distance of every part. Min- ions of tons have already been taken out, and mines already excavated that would supply the continent for gen- erations. "Water powers along (he western slope and in almost every portion of the northern half are magnificent In extent, and many of them easily util- ized. These three sources of power- coal, natural gas and tee the future of Alberta as a great manufacturing centre." OWING SECRETARY'S AB. SENCE THE FINANCIAL RE- PORT WAS NOT GIVEN Macleod, Dec. E.
