Railway Facilities The increase in the number of set- tlers to Alberta has been large, and measures are being taken looking to making it still larger. This state of af- fairs carries with it its own responsi- bilities. A very large part of the time of my mnisters has been taken up by the work of carrying into effect the pol- icy.of railway expansion which was au- thorized by the last Assembly. Much work has been done and preparations have been made for a vigorous cam- paign for the extension of railway fa- cilities as soon as the weather allows operations to be resumed. The work of providing the province the necessary buildings to accom- modate its various and ever increasing activities has been carried on. with vig- forward still Notable pro- gress has been made as you yourselves may observe, on the Legislative build- ings. Visit of Earl Grey In this connection I may record the loyal pleasure with which the people of Alberta welcomed the presence of the Governor-General of the Dominion at the laying of the corner stone of the new buildings. His Excellency was pleased to express in enthusiastic terms his appreciation of his reception or the beauty of the site and the wonderful land in which it is our good fortune to live. Education There has been during the year a gratifying expansion of the schools of ihe province uoth in the number of the or and will be pushed more rapidly tin's year. watched, and that Instruction in the scientific and practicable aspects of the work should be given during the school age. Foremost, of course, among the branches of practical education stands the foster mother of the prosperity of the country, the art of agriculture. Proposed Legislation There will be submitted to your con- sideration a large number of important measures. First among these I may place the four bills for the better man- agement of municipal affairs of the province. The provincial university has rendered necessary the introduc- tion of a university bill. Bills will be introduced for further regulation of traffic on highways which has hitherto been a matter of custom, the securing of a fair share in their deceased hus- band's estate to married women, the systematization of the law in regard to the reception of evidence in courts of law, the protection of public officers in their discharge of duties along the lines of the common law of England, and the relief of creditors in regard tc the estates of absconding debtors. A uniform system of dealing with loans authorized by the Legislature will also be submitted which proposes to create a permanent stock. Various important and necessary amendments to and modifications of the statute law of the province will also be submitted to you. The increas- ing wealth of Alberta and its growing material prosperity results every year in a large increase of the number of private bills to be considered by you, and I would ask for your careful con- sideration of these.

BORDEN GOING TO RESIGN Persistent Rumor At the Capital Says He Will BARTLETTFOR THE SOUTH POLE Montreal, P'eb. Ottawa spe- cial says there are persistent rumors the efiect that R. L. Borden has in contemplation his resignation of the leadership of the Conservative party. The wiser men amongst- the party deprecate this, ns they believe it would bo a serious blow to the par- lies interested. It is true that Bor- (ien has not qualities of a "hail fel- low well met" which some regard as essential in a leader, but he has hon- esty of purpose and broadened views. He has boon a strong debater and a wise, if not spectacular counsellor. TRYING TO SETTLE STRIKE U. M. W. of A. Officers Meet General Manager Pluminer Montreal, Fob. delegation from the United Mine Workers of Am- erica was in Montreal today and en- deavored to see President Plummer of the Dominion Coal Company to discuss the strike situation.

National Geographical Society, which resolved at a'meeting here yesterday to send an American expedition in search of the South Pole, confidently expects ample financial assistance from but- side sources to warrant the explora- tion.

Bartlett who commanded the Roose- ve.. as Captain Peary's successor in quest of the South Pole and that the other members of the Peary expedi- tion with the exception of Com. Peary undertake the race for the undiscover- ed Antarctic "bottom of the earth."

ONLY TWENTY TORIES IN SENATE Ottawa, Feb. the death of Senator Baker in Montreal today the representation of the Conservatives in the- Senate is now reduced to twenty out of a total membership of eighty- seven. When the present government assumed office thirteen years ago there were but eleven Liberals in the Senate. Consequently the present dis- proportionate standing of the parties in the upper chamber is not as baa as it was in the last days of the Tupptr administration. The changes 'n the personnel of the Senate average ab- out four per year. At present Saskatchewan has four Liberal Senators and not a single- Conservative. Prince Edward Islaud British Columbia, Alberta and Mani- toba have each only Conservative Senate. In New Brunswick the pro- portion is two Conservatives to eight Liberals, in Nova Scotia three Con- servatives to seven Liberals. In On- tario five Conservatives to nineteen Liberals and in Quebec six Conscrva- 1 tivos to eighteen Liberals. ;
