Man Cut in Two By tP.R, Engine East of Ferine "I think the leaders In the var- ious branches of the Irrigation En- velopment Association should get together and .decide on a policy to pursue as a wholo in connection with the irrigation legislation at the coming session of the legisla- said Ted Sundal, secretary of the Tabor branch of the I.D.A., over long distance telephone to the Herald Monday evening. "I notice that the New Dayton. branch of the association Is op- posed to the tentative proposal for provincial government aid to irri- gation projects in the south as out- lined in the Herald's special arti- cle from Edmonton a week ago last Saturday. Now, while I am wholly in sympathy with the de- sire of the New Dayton farmers to secure Irrigation (or their lands as soon as possible, I that with a little better understanding of the proposal outlined they might take a different course. It in absolutely essential that the various branches of the associa- tion co-operate along the same line urging government aid, for If we are divided it can only mean delay In getting the start- ed, and we have been Ions enough'already." While Mr. Sandal did not sug- gest a meeting of the chairmen and saeroturles of the I. D. A. branches to discuss the whole matter, he indicated that such a meeting should be held In order to get unified action on any proposal the government might put forth. Speaking with regard to the southeastern projects, Mr. Sundal pointed out that two grave mat- ters had to considered before progress could be possible. There is the division of the waters of the St. Mary's and Belly rivers between Canada and the United States which must be decided be- fore any construction can be un- dertaken, 'and there Is also the position of the Lethbrldge project of the C.P.R. and its water right on the St. Mary'a river to consider. It is possible that this water right may have to be acquired beforo the larger project can be gone ahead with, so that .in talking of delay on the part of the goverii; ment there is the possibility of this further delay to be consider- ed in conjunction.

'press of Asia docked here last eight from Oriental ports. In the steamer's cargo were 680 tons .of silk and over two million Chinese eggs for Atlantic provinces and states. Among the passengers was Dr. J.' C. Ferguson, financial advisor to the president of China. Referring to (am- jlue conditions in China, Dr. Ferguson I said that if the people of America j could only see those millions of peo- ple lying by the roadsides, too weak to walk and in such a condition that, unconsciousness was a God-send, there could be no hesitancy on the part of the people here to share a little of the bountiful harvests giveu to Amer- ica. Dr. Ferguson declared that the con- sortium will be a good thing for China when it is functioning. He would not divulge the mission on which he is going to Washington, but he intimat- ed that it had a bearing on both the consortium and famile relief.
