Policy Will Not Be Definitely Annpunced Until Lcgisla-turt ;V^eet�-Herald Man At Edmonton Seems Confident Lethbridgfc Northern Construction Will Be Un-dertaken^^This Year, the Province Finding the Money -^Hope Policy to be Established Will Enable Irriga-tlbn Boiids to Eventually Find Favor on Money Mar-jcet Without Gtiarantee. PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT REALIZES NEED OF A DEFINITE POLICY ON IRRIGATION (By a Staff Reporter.) EDMONTON, Alta., Jan. 2^.-That the Leth-bridge Northern Irrigation District construction will be tmder way thfe coming si|mmer may now be taken practically as an establish^ fact; that a government annoUhcement on the Whole question of irrigation policy for Alberta will be made at the coming, session may also be expected. France Skeptical About Briand, But Wm and See His Gouise at Conference Premiere Will Be Closely Watched of PARIS, -Jau. 32.-Newspapers of this city today expressed satisfaction with the Tote of confldenco given the Briand ministry iu the /chamber of deputies but there -was a noticeable lack of enthusiasm. A majority held ^o view that yesterday's vote was an" Bxpression of confldenco, not in the ministry, but In Briand, the champion of' stance In the approaching meeting of premiers. It was declared the chamber meant to give maximum authority to the men who -wlU-pload her cause, and that the Brlaud ministry vras not judged on/Its declaration, but ^tIU be judged by the results of the conference of premiers. "Yesterday's long speech by M. Briand," said the Echo De Paris, "does not appear to glvo any more light than the ministry's declaration, exoopt on one polu;.; "Payment of a lump sum by Germany is not ray thesis.' These words were pronounced by the new premier and wo will do as the chamher did. and will take note ot hla promise. A large credit of provisional c"?)nfldence is opened for M. Briand and none desires more than we to see him make the best use ot It tor the interests of the country.- Some newRpapers manifested a certain veiled Bkeptlolsm, the Petit i Giomde, ona of the most influential provincial organs, declaring: "What, the nation finds to be strange is that we shonld be obliged to ncgotlatu ceaselessly -riV- ttae allies in order that they may help us to obtain the �xecutlon of a trea.y signed by them. Ttaeroforo, it with the same methods M. Briand succeeds in getting better results than have been achieved in the past, we may then say he has deserved well ot hla. country." SAID HE CAUGHT WIFE IN A STEEL TRAP The Herald staff representative has this week seen the members of .the I govemmont moStvvifcally interested in I the irrigation question and while , none ot them' naturally, it is quoted, as officially making the aboy� statement becauB)} the details ot the plan both fior the Lethbridge Northern and I tor, the whole pollby ot Alberta's future irrigation dovelopmeut have yet to be worked ont, it was quite evident that the government had made up its mind to dispose of this problem oni;e and tor all at the spring sesBlon. . No definite "policy can bo onnnciated until Premier,Stewart Is.back at his desk, which will be twir weeks more at the earliest possible. Must.b� Definite Action The government of the province has decided that irrigation development cannot longer be delayed. .They are now quite satlsftpd'that there would be no rest un^tll II, definite line of action toward developing Alberta's l,CpO;000 acres of land for which Irrigation watei- is ava^lkble has been decided upon. The irrigation agitation centreing about Ijethbridge is no flash in the pan. The government is quite satisfied on that score. The fanners of the whole province have gone on record as being favorable to the employment of the whole credit of the province for financing the Lethbridge Northern and nov{ that preliminary surveys havp been made showing that waters of the North Saskatchewan can be utilized to spread irrigation to probably a million acres northeast of Calgary, the Irrigation agitation is coming much closer home to the govemmont. Members of the cabinet have recently been approached by private members of the legislature from the central eastern portion, of the province to learn what may be-the attitude of the government towards the North Saskatchewan scheme, detailed surveys of which project are likely to be undertaken by the Dominion Reclamation Service the cominp summer. That seems to be the irrigatlqn situation from the Edmonton viewpoint. Acceptance of the fact that there can be no turning back on irrigation development seems to be the longest step forward made in official circles in the past year, and that seems to hare cleared the decks for action. LAUREL, Miss., Jan. 22.-Driven from his cabin in the swamps along Leaf River by high water, Albert Parsons, an aged white man and his wife, were brought to Laurel today and placed In the county poor house.

Ashdown ot Winnipeg, who was recently tendered the office ot president of the Western Caniada Colonization association, announced today ho was unable to accept the poBition. M. A. Bi-own, Medicine Hat, present active head, is out of the city, hut it is understood that the executive -wll# be called together in a few days to seek a new chief executive. At the same time It is expected a choice- will be madc of a general manager of the organization tor which office a number ot names have been mentioned. ....... What Will be the Policy? What will this action be? How will the L,ethbridge Northern be financed, and what will the relation be between the Lethbridge Northern finance solution, and the scheme for financing tie larger .projects to follow. The Lethbridge Northern is a five million dollar project. Taking into consideration the possibility of the North Saskatchewan project, the whole irrigation development of Alberta in future is more likely to be seventy-five or one hundred million than the thirty millions we have been talking about. Cabinet ministers point out this fact to you. In settling an irrigation finance policy they have to consider the large figure as being the likely load the province ma^ ftave to assume in the way of a credit guarantee if that plan is followed. And naturally they are not over anxious to consider a full guarantee of bonds under such circumstances. (Continued on page five.)
