His Royal Highness was gracious enough, during his presence in Alberta, to formally open this building, and dedicate it to the purpose for which it was intended. In every part of the Province, his Royal Highness was enthusiastically welcomed, the reception plainly evidencing the attachment of our people to the Kmpire of which our Province constitutes so fair a portion. The growing population and. -busi* ness of the country during tb,e -last year, -required that I should add four ministers to my government. The result of their personal labors and the additional 'work accomplished in. the interests of the country by the departments created, is an evidence of-the necessity for this course.
