There is only one main feature after all, that is the railway policy of the Govern- ment. Both leaders devoted their heavy arguments this 'afternoon to this question. The leader of the Opposition after a few harmless dia- tribes, "about what the speech did not say went into an elaborate outline of the railway policy of the Opposi- tion uncl the Conservative Party, for whom, the member for High River was careful to announce, he was speaking. He was out and out for built by the Gov- ernment and operated by the Gov- ernment of the Province. He drew a strong picture of the need of rail- ways and pointed out that in the Nanton district there were 500.000 bushels of wheat yet in the fanners' hands, worthy of note that the leader of the Opposition endorsed the attitude of the Government in devising some means .for solving the transportation question of Alberta. "A feature of the argument of the leader of the Opposition was his plett neglect of the South and the Central portion of the Province, in His railway scheme. After stating that the need of railways had reach- ed a crisis he immediately plunged into a description of the need of the far North for railways. Evidently he decirei that the bushels of wheat in the farmers' bins in his own ridinf shall remain there. Premier Rutherford in his reply was not slow to point out the one- sidedness of Mr. Robertson's policy, both as stated before the House this afternon and contained in his reso- lution of last year. Mr. Rutherford who is a keen dialectician nailed the leader of the Opposition and the Par- ty he' represented to their declara- tion of policy as contained in the resolution submitted last year by the Opposition which reads as "Be it resolved that in the opin- ion of this House, the Government least an attempt to commit arson Will Short who lives in the Meadow Farm district, 10 miles west of High River, was entertaining some friends last Friday evening. At about 11.30 o'clock he noticed that the stables of his neighbor, Mr. Demers, were on fire. Mr. Short and his guests hurried across the prairie and found that the straw roof was burning. In the coal shed adjoining a table can- dle burning on-a small box; the candle was placed on an oil soaked gunny sack and shavings. Oil had also been sprinkled on the lumber wall of the house, and inside of the coal bin. Mr. Demers was away from home at the time .but his wife and four small children were asleep up stairs, and it is certain that' the whole'property would have been wip- ed out and probably the lives of the occupants of the house would have been swallowed up by the flames, if it had not been for the providen- tial discovery of Mr. Short. It was noticed a single buggy with two men and two dogs in the neighborhood at 11 o'clock. Mr. Short immediately drove iato High River to inform Ser- geant Thomas of the occurrence. Taking up the clue of the'single buggy seen in the neighborhood, they decided to visit all the livery stables without delay, and in one stable found a horse dripping wet and out- side a buggy, which contained amongst other things a quantity o oiled waste. They proceeded from the livery stable to the hotels, an in the office of the Oxford hotel foun the owner of the horse, Mr. Driscoll and his son, warming themselves a the stove.
