Guarantee j GOVERNMENT WILL j HAVE POLICY j (Special to The Herald) KUMONTOK. Alta., Feb. 1 Premier HOD. O. K. Mitchell, emphat- ically denied Thursday morning that tho provincial cabinet has reached: any agreement yet on the subject of' aid to irrigation. .Discussing a report j in an Alberta newspaper that the gov- ernment had decided to go "fifty-fifty" in aiding the sale of irrigation bonds, that is guarantee or advance money on irrigation bonds up to fifty per rent, of their par value, Mr. Mitchell siiid the story was wholly nvithout basis. Irrigation After Budget "We have hardly touched the sub- ject said Mr. Mitchell, "owing to The (act that we have been too busy working on the estimates which we Itopp to get. out next week. When- the work on the budget is completed, we will take ifV the subject ot irriga- tion. All I can say is that the govern- ment intends to do in the matter, but we have not agreed on rihall be as yet." Same on Liquor Act. The government Is the same posi- lion with reference lo possible chan- ges in the liquor act. Such changes, ou tho possibility of a plebiscite have not yet been the subject of formal dis-: Vuasion in caucus. Some of tha mem-; hers are predicting; that the govern- ment will let the act stand us at pres- cnt with the possible change, of reduc- ing the amount of liquor that may hi- sold on a prescription From 40 to ?4 ounces. This would not mean-lhneh alteration as most liquor is put up in 24 ounce. bottles anyway. On the other haml, the movement to .submit ihe subject of full government control to a provincial plebiscite is rapidly saining headway among private mem- bers of tho house on both sides.

Hatfield is due here in April. The J8.0CO 'purge Is iu the bank ready to hand over to the Call- fornian when he makes "the heav- ens weep with sufficient copious- ness. It's some job, but Hatfield says he'll do it despite what the wiaeacres tjie com- bined -wisdom of all the scientists iir the employ of all governments. Of course, it doesn't always pay to laugh. They lanjbed at the old prophet Noah when he told them an unpre- cedented -storm was' coming, ona that would wetithjngs up terribly. One could have accounted for such light-mindedness theso days whan anything that spells "wet'' brings a smile. But there was no excuse for those fellows way back there. Well, Hatlield doesn't say he's going to bring on a flood or ansx_ thing like that, but he is going 10 bring rain and if be does he'll walk off to the coast with SS.iJOij and a standing contract to operate here for life. "Of course, I don't wait: to knock Hatfleld or anything like that" said a. farmer here night, "but I don't think his rain- making stunt Is worth a continen- tal. I'll give the boys how- ever, to help 'em out, and then you know we'll have some iun out of it." N The general feeling seems lo be.

Mitchell that the provincial government has re- ceived definite assurance from the prime minister of Canada that during the present session of the Dominion parliament he will draft a definite proposal for the restoration of their natural resources to the three pra'rie provinces constituted .the most important feature of a lengthy debate In the legislature afternoon. HON. BOYLE'S BEST SPEECH Hon. Mr. Mitchell and Attorney-General J. R. Boyle both made lengthy replies to the speech made on the previous day by A. F. Ewing, -West Edmonton, leader of the right wing of the opposition, in which the latter attacked the record of the Liberal party in the West on the subject of the 'transfer of the public domain tj the provinces. Mr. Boyie'5 effort in particular marked the best speech the attorney-general has made, being devoid of rancor and dealing largely with the historical and legal aspects of the case. PREMIER MEIGHEN'S PROMISE Mr. Mitchell's announcement concerning' the promise of Prem- ier Meighen to take up the subject of transfer of the natural re- sources to the provinces in the federal parliament stated that the "proposal will be submitted to the parliament of Canada and the governments of the prairie provinces for their consideration and ratification." Mr. Mitcheff made it in the form of an amendment to Mr. Ewing's motion of the previoua day. The amendment states the satisfaction of the house in the conatant and continued applica- tion of the provincial government to obtain action in the transfer of the natural resources. The motion and amendment probably .-will come to a vote Thurs- day afternoon, the debate being adjourned by Dr. T. H. Blow, oppo- sition, South Caigary. DR. G. O.

Press.i Interest in the anent the imposed by the British gov- ernment on' Canadian live cattle has heuu stimulated by the controversy which has broken out between Lord Heaverbrook, tho Canadian-born peer and Sir Arthur 'Boscawen. the newly- appointed minister of agriculture, who is waging; a warm bye-election in Dudley. Lord Beaverbrook lias a letter a column long in the Loudon Daily Ex- press this morning in which he .takes decided exception to what he describ- ed as "the foul attack" made upon him by the new minister iu a speech in Dudley. Tho letter quotes the nevr minister as saying that "Lord Beaverbrook and his friends will profit if the importa- tion of Canadian cattle into Britain js permitted." Lord Beaverbrook's answer to this 3s that he has no interest in cattle raising: in any country in the world Cicept on his farm at LeMherhea'd, ii'nsland, and that his interest in the Kubjeot, to secure tho removal of the cattle .embargo, is dictated by the de- sire to lower tbe price of food to British consumers.
