It. is perhaps difficult to grasp thi ictivily existing in the province, bti :ome idea of the rapidity of its de- may be gathered from the act that last year acres were akon up by settlers every day he year, and that two new townh prang into being each week, while or every school day In the province 'no new school was opened. "I said .Mr. Sifton lo one of ur representatives, "that we may egitimately describe Alberta as tbe vonder child' of Canada, with Sas- atchewan it is the twin youngest pro- ince of the Dominion, and it occupies greater area than any country In iurope, with the exception of Russia, s a matter of fact, it Is greater rea than the united territories of ermany, Fntnce, and try. It is more than twice the size Great Britain and Ireland. "I have always said that all A I- erta required to make the utmost of Its natural resources were ansport facilities and settlers. And e are now finding both. The prill- pal railways running through Al- irta are the Canadian Northern, the Pacific', and the Grand ruuk, and by the end of the year we lall have addc-d another 700 miles rail within the province, which ves us a higher proportion of in- case than any other province in the omiuion.

Large fields have been discov. red also in the northern portion ot he province, which will soon be util- ed in the same way. "In addition, there is an endless haln of coal running under almost le whole bitu- linons coal, and rea- onable distance of every part. .Mill- ens of tons have already been tak' ut, and mines already excavated that ould supply Ihe continent for gen- rations.

"Our position in Alberta, therefore, is secure, and our future must be a great one. We can say that the PTO- possesses natural advantages which, no other territory hi the Do- minion can claim. TO begin with, the climate is magnificent, and our title of 'Sunny Alberta' is justified to the full. The spring comes much earlier in Alberta than it does in the most easterly portions of the prairie j provinces, and the winter is consider- ably milder. The high-lying lands of Alberta have restored to thousands health which they thought they had irretrievably lost, in other countries.
