"For the people of Canada and the I'niied States'.'" declared Premier Stewart, ''at present time lhe paramount duty is 10 supply the necessities for ihe carrying on of the war.

[ When President Wilson voiced tbe hope that' sports be continued during tho period of war he had the welfare of the nation -a-t heart, says tbe Pittsburg D ispateh. The president was quick to realize that wholesome competition oT the outdoor brand was sure to furnish clean amusement that would divert the mind from war worries, and at the flame time keep the rank and file of citizenship in a high state of physical condition. But Mr. Wilson's hfgh regard for [ 6 & * 4 sport., it is absolutely safe to say. had no relationship with the undemocratic actions of the major league baseball magnates who have decided to advance admission prices at the various parks on the big circuits. The weak excuse for this decision is found in the s per cent war tax which iinust be collected from all amusements. J The magnates have discovered that multiple^ of fives will eliminate the laborious hash connected with handling penni es, bn t i h ey disregard t n e wishes of the fans in making the revision upward instead of the other dU^t'tion. BRAVES GET SLUGGER Uoston, Mass., Feb. 27.-luioldo Richard Conway of the Worohesbu club ot the Eastern League, leado; Question labor aspect of the production ijuesiion and remarking that awing to t.he CflM'od States being herself, concerned directly in tho conflict that country now was practically a blank wall the premier said each province would have to rely upon its own resources. \ fn his opinfuu and in the opinion of tiie other western delegates the time had arrived when i! was their duly to cut off all production that, was not. e,s-sonlinl to the carrying on of the war that labor thus reie.ised might be employed in Jabor that was essential. In so far as production in Alberta was concerned it, depended largely upon tho members of the legislature Themselves in the agricultural committee to Ret down to business to find ways and mo�ns for action. Colonization Colonisation. t*aid .Mr. Stewart, had been discussed at the conference, but nothing had been done as it was realised that, until the question of the natural resources had been settled nothing tangible could be effected, one iiuestion so much hinged upon the other. r I)tn (he western premiers had impressed the necessity of more rare in i the inspection of immigrants. A good dead lud been said, observed the premier, about public health, 'and lit: would like to tell the house that, fid I per cent of the population in their j asylums were bred outside the province. * Schoo/ Lands School lands, he continued, was a j vital ouestion between lhe Dominion, and the Government-of Alberta, and at tiie present time the Dominion owed Alberta $800,000 in unpaid interest. It w.i-s true that lhe money had not been collected, but the federal government had not. been as active as it might have been. They had, however, boor^ promised that a more vigorous policy of collection would be pursued. A'ot only that, they had the promise also that the rate would he raised to 0 per cent 'from this spring, and that on the unpaid interest the owners would h.rve to pay 7 per cent. Returned Soldiers in regard to the returned soldiers the premier informed the house that the ipiescions of back pay and the indexing of the returning/men so as to secure ail the information they could about them had heew discussed. The , indexing system had been agreed to and Gen. Mewburh had stated that the particulars would lie sent in advance of the men coining back. In regard to i ho hack pay it had been arranged thai permanent official- would be attached to the staff in each military district as he had suggested. Fuel Production In regard to fuel production Premier Stewart said he ha.d reminded the conference of the coal resources of Alberta, and had given tho assurance that, the government in conjunction wiih the railway compa.uies was prepared to do everything to gee the coaJ to the places that needed it. On the point of deterioration that had been r-.iiscd he urged the shipment of coal in the summer, but the fact was that while more men were being employed now there was less production nof-withnauding tiie scarcity in other parts of the country. 7)n the question of land settlement Mr. Stewart had. expressed, he said the view (hat the proposals of the Dominion Government were not going to meet, the requirements of ^Iberta. and he pointed to the vast afeaa of uncultivated land within the "settled areas of the, province and there was one thing be said had not been overlooked, and that was that Cauaria as a whole was responsible for anything tiint was being done. They as a province were not endeavoring* to escape their responsibilities, hut. they wanted to have the men' settled where they were provided for and that was in the settled areas where they had at the present lime large tracts of uncultivated land. He was not worried whether the $2,fifl0 was, paid back. Men had not paid for their seed grain, and the soldiers were men who bar: rendered such service to the country that every arrangement should be made for their proper settlement on tho land. They had been promised he aaid by Premier Borden that an amendment would be introduced to change the land settlement as it related to Western Canada. J Railway Situation Proceeding the premier said that during the present session he was going to take the opportunity of making a very careful inspection so far as was humanelv posi^ble of every phase of the railway situation in the province and he was going to ask the indulgence uf tiie liouse in regard/to telephone system. He had not been able to go into this matter as thoroughly as he would have liked but he promised before another session to have the same details given them aa he hoped to be able to get in connection with the railways. C. N. R. Money The apparent digression brought the premier to the statement that he had taken up with the Minister of Railways hi. Ottawa tho question of the $3,000,000 lying in the banks to the credit of the C. N. K. and the Canadian Xorth Western. It this money were at the disposal of the province I at the conclusion of tbe war it. would be of inestimable service, lie had an proaehed Dr. Reid armed olution by ihe people of Metis. Dr. rtcid had taken tho consideration, and something would negotiations. * Another matter cussed at Ottawa wiih a. rvs-St. PauMe- mailer intr he was hopeful thai come out of the that had been dis� was that it would be unwise to demobilize the returning soldiers at once owing to the condition the labor market, would hi in. lie thought, that arrangements would be completed whereby l posed of the member* of the whole house has been called by the Hon* Duncan Mqhdiall for 10.30 on Frida.v morning to consider the question ol ways and means towards greater production in the province in connection with the successful prosecution of tlu wa r. t I - - - --w.,-- * ALLOW BOXING IN N.
