In 1914 came the railway gang, and in when its work was dong, in pressed the pioneers. This yosu: I have followed in their tracks and, reflecting on what 1 have sees, I endorse this wisdom. First, the 'country is of uncom- awa tracts of prairie, wHh patches of light bunh, set low purple hilla, and inter- sected hy belts of timber and by fine rincn and streams.

A man may be no agri- culturist or. authority on sells, but even a fool can't mistake the evi- dence of growing crops. The pioneers, I said, are pressing and more than pioneers.

Nevertheless, as my friend the Cabinet Minister said, there it yet much to do. Roads need to be grad- ed, trails improved, river transport increased. Most urgent of all an improved and progressive railway service is needed. That, indeed, is vital; for other- wise many of the settlers will drift out again; the fight is talalr.
