Gushing is reported as having said: Mr. Cusbing referred to the value of the work of the government in constructing colonization lines which no private company would ever do. The government has built TOO .of telephone and there are now 600 fanners using telephones that did not have them one year .ujo. No one can estimate the value of that j to a community. The people of United States corn- ing in here were accustomed to the telephone and were clamoring for it. Ibey sirs satisfied with phone development. What is going" to happen. The for South York, on any of the House of Commons committees, because Bil- ly is an Independent Conservative and thinks for himself. If Taylor had his way, every Conservative would pledge himself to vote for measures, right or wrong as long as they are fathered -by a 'Conservative-, with the O. K. mark of Geo. Taylor. Why not run a road into the Flat- head country by way of Cardslon. the Cochrane ranch and the Waterton Lakes? Such a line would open a fine farming country. give us easy access to one of the finest summer re- sorts in the West and put the timber .'ind minerals, of the Flathcad Valley within easy access of market, Secretary Treasurer Robinson talked sound sense boards should full publicity to their proposed ex- penditures. when be said school be compelled to give including isinyth great-grandfather of Algoma; whose spelled it Smythe.

It is this very fact that the telephone is accessible in rural districts as well as ic cities, towns and villages that will attract to us the prosperous American who has been accustomed to this advan- tage. The American doesn't mind lo- cating in a new -land if he> is sure of some oi the modem conveniences. He wonta a railroad as close to him as possible, he wants a daily mail, and he-feels right at home and happy if he can. get a telephone. Mr. Gushing in his object of admin- istering the telephone system on a purely business basis, can depend up- on it that he has the solid people of the "province at his back. We don't want the telephone system to be traf- ficked with for political, ends but we want it conducted on progressive and sound business lines. The sooner the entire system is placed under the di- rection of a commission or a deputy minister, who is an authority on tel- the better opportunity there e for a business-like administra- below zero.
