ABOUT A GOVERNMENT, A RAIL- WAY POLICY AND PLATFORM PROMISES PERFORMED The railway policy of the Govern- ment _is catching on and being unaru imousjy. endorsed because it is the one thiag above everything else re- quired lor the times. A railway pol- icy would have been a good policy years there was no demand .for it.and few to be served. No doubt a vigorous railway policy'ten years ago would have created a great ..inflow of population and the province .would now be far in advance of what is. 'But.there was no demand, anc so'it was left for the first Government of the. province to accomplish the in Ihe history of West, for when the Government's pro. gramme is. brought down there is ev- ery .likelihood that the most optimis- tic .will- find; that the- accomplished --fact ia greater than their, dreams thmt with one gigantic effort the raiL way -mileage within the province wiU be at least doubled. It a remarkable that so greatly ad- v vanced legitlation is to be accom- plwhed in the short life time of the first Parliament. It means that the -executive is fully competent, fully .awake to the country's interests. The fact is that the Government has nurtured the idea since the beginning .and no doubt would have brought down railway legislation, earlier had the time been ripe for it. The fact that at- the last session of Parlia. -ment the Opposition. introduced a resolution calling upon the govern to acquire a single new line and that one a line to the far north, anc the further fact that this demanc came from south of Calgary, and. the further act that no one at the time criticised the resolution, on the ground that the great need for new roads was in the southern portion oi the province, is proof conclusive that not .until the actual present .has there existed any general recognized need lor more roads. Those in close asso- ciation with the Government know, however, that the Government .hus Constantly fostered the idea, constant. ly encouraged whatever agitation has arisen for a viforoos policy of railway building by Government assistance or otherwise. And now that the Tecog- nwed-desire for a Greater Alberta has .ciystalited into a, general agitation .fprT roads, np one ia more enthusias- tic the Government and without any delay, but with remarkable alac- rity, arrangements have been secured and .legislation prepared to give the than it had even dream-1 ed- about -People of Lethbridge have I confidently expected that some .time! lines from th two northern roads but if the city months ag for options as to when those road wpujd be. realized the time of their expected arrival would doubtless hav beeu found to beta matter of five o six jesrs or even longer. The author itative that, M asresult of th prompt, businesslike action of the tie-two northern roads will touch. Lethbridge before another winter. William Jennings Bryan declarei thjtt a good government is one tha the people -what the majority ofvtheia. want, and that is the princi pie upon which the United States goy. eminent has attained such popular ity of late years. That is-what the Government at Edmonton is doing, in laetr what it has done at all times. H has given the people what the ma- jority of rthem want, realiiinf that the coooensm of opinion is correct and and the beauty of it ;isr the action has always been, as in this prompt and.decisive! If there is any disposition to ques- tion .the accuracy of the statement that the Government. given the people what they demand, reference be.made to the platform adopted by the Liberal party at CaL ;in 1906, which platform WM almost unanimously endorsed at the, polls, and comparison made with the recorded seta Of the Government. That pJftform demanded the "pro- motion of the welfare of the people by the creation and .preservation of opportunity in life, so far ia for every and nothiaf wiU tend to equalize oppor- tunity thoroughly as the wide de- velopment of the province by railway bwUding. -A railway brings a; town the -.remote bomestead: equaliies the values of lands and affords op. pSfivnUj tor every .wide awake resi- dent to ereate for himself substan- tial frpifcraity. This the Govern- nwot doing. It -demanded "the viforcvs reprseskm oerta Government he can find no op- portunity. No man conducts Ms pri- vate business without- committing fal- acies of judgment and no man can expect a government to be infallible, but thfe.Government, of Alberta upon ts record, comes well nigh to being so. The Government will call an elec- tion doubtless in the near future and will go before the people for approval or rebuke.
