Gush ing, who leaves today for Edmonton, stated to the Albertuc. on Saturday that tho date 1'or the opening of the session had not as yet been decided upon and would not be until Premier Rutherford returned from Ottawa.

Gushing said that .while of course there would be the usual number of minor legislation such as the amending of existing ordinances and the passing of some new ones the big question would be the govern- ment's railway policy, This he considered should commend itself to the people of southern Al- berta, and especially to the people of Calgary. The country, he said, is in great' need of railways and as the Dominion government are slow in the matter, it is the policy of the provincial gov- ernment to hasten matters. A redistribution bill has also been talked oi but Gushing was not in a position to outline what fona the proposed legislation would take or make any further statements on the subject.
