Owing to the fact of which you are already aware that in your method of administering the affairs of state, en- trusted to the care of the government there are several matters in which I am not in accord with you. The most prominent of these being the manner in which you have handled the railway policy of the province es- le.vied in the Lethbridge district dur- ing the year 1909 were as C. 0. Card's estate, duties, G8; A. P. Cockburn's estate duties, William Henderson's estate, duties, Francis W. Noyes' pecially that part pertaining to the succession duties j guaranteeing of the bonds of the Al- tierta and Great Waterwavs Railway.

"I may state also that at the first possible date the agreements and everything else, even to the route plans of the C. N. R. and G. T. P. branch lines will be placed before the House.

Answered by No. 5. the matter of the legislation to be submitted to the legislature providing for the establishment and operation of a system of public owned On the occasion of an interview be- tween these bodies some three weeks ago the government undertook to draft a bill and to submit it to the grain growers before introducing it in the Legislature. Subsequent to this conference the grain growers instructed their, adviser R; A. Bonnar, K.C., also to prepare a bill embodying .their proposals. Yes- terday forenoon at 11 o'clock the di- rectors of the Grain Growers' Asso- ciatioA met the members of the gov- ernment at the legislative buildings. Thorc was practically a full attend- ance of the grain growers and the government forces were headed by Hon. Robert Rogers, acting premier. It is understood that the conference lasted more than an hour and the proceedings were of a nature to indi- cate that they would result not in agreement but in deadlock. BILLS DO NOT AGREE The government produced their bill and the grain growers also brought forward the bill prepared for them by Mr. Bonner. It is said that the points of divergency in thc two mea-jis to sures largely outnumbered the points of resemblance and it early became apparent that it would be extremely difficult to reconcile thc two measures FIRST AID TO INJURED SOCIETY FORMED Fernie, Feb.
