If anyone looked for an exposition Of Government policy in tho matter of what may be regarded to be pop- ular legislation, there is nothing in ths Speech from tho Throne to satis- fy curiosity or interest. It is a very forma! document of the usual stereo- typed fashion, as these declarations from the Throne have come to be, taking the form as they now do, in dealing with generalities, merely ap purtenancos of the opening ceremony of Representative Houses. The possession of oil-bea'ring areas is not only a national asset but even a world asset, and in tho British Em- pire an Imperial asset. The new fed- eral regulations to apply to the newly- discovered oil-bearing areas in the far north are accordingly of exceptional interest, in the bearing thay will have in making these rich areas, should they pan out to expectation, a nation- al asset and preventing them from falling Into the hands of exploiters and speculators, with the inevitable wild-catting that will follow.

SASKATOON, Feb. is probably the greatest single loss by lire In tho history of Saskatoon, oc- j curred early this morning when the Cahlll block number three, at Avenue A and 20th street west, was totally destroyed. The blaze originated from unknown causes in a pool room in the basement of the building, and was discovered shortly after midnight. Ap- paratus from all the fir? stations in ths city immediately responded, an the lire was thought to be under con trol at 2 o'clock. Just before 3 o'clock however, it broke out with renewei vigor and in less than half an hoiu the building had collapsed Into a heap of blazing ruins. The ground floor was occupied bj the department store of Panar's Ltd. who are the largest individual losers apart from the owners of the building and several small shops and offices The two upper floors were-devoted to residential apartments.

Last year Mr. King com- slalned that the government was mak- ing no tariff modifications. Today, he- cried out that the government had no mandate to touch the tariff. Mr. Melghen countered, "the govern- ment had power to deal with the tariff to remove their lighter valuables. In addition, most of the tenants of the ground floor were able to remove office furniture, with the result that streets for a block around were strewn with barber chairs, desks and other articles. The task of fighting the flre was made extremely difficult by the enor- mous volumes of smoke which poured from the basement, and by the bitter cold. When the fire suddenly burst Into Its full fury, about 2.45 a.m., the equipment of the firemen was totally Inadequate, partly because of the in- accessibility of the blaze, and partly because of the construction of. the building.
