But while the States have a very extensive railway mileage, Canada has perhaps the greatest independent single system in the world in the C. P.

The estimates were under discus- gram extension so over- whelmingly great as .to command the spot light all for itself. An authorL tive source declares that the present mileage, will be more than doubled within the next two years as a result the Government's most commend- able enterprise. Bills will shortly be brought down authorizing the Gov- ernment to assist the railway devel- opment of Alberta in a manner to command the admiration not alone of Canada, but of the world. The bills will .provide for subsidies or bond guarantees that the rowels demand, and -will require that in order to take advantage of the benefits thus ar, ranged.for, the roads must complete the building within a remarkably sborjL .time. Just where the roads thus assisted will gu is not c-eriain, but it is sure that there wiD be lines .fronv the two northern roads to the southsto give competition throughout the. wheat fields, and a line to the north to develop the hidden resourc- es; of that wonderful country. ,Hpw .many lines, to tht south will be built only the Government and the peo- ple with whom negotiations have been conducted know, but the news -will soon be for every one and the assurance is doubly sure that there will be roads to adequately serve the country now greatly in need. -The. result of this activity on the part of the Goverment will be to stim. ulate a general era of railway build- ing up and down the Province, lor the roads not in the arrangement will have to get busy to hold their own. The C.' P. E. will have to jump in and cover the country it has pre-emp- ted, and the recent announcement that thirty million dollars have been appropriated for that purpose is the first indication of their recognition of that iact. The .other result will be such anj era of general development and uni- versal prosperity as has nex'er before been experienced in the West, and however it is brought about that is thing we are shonting for. sion and the name of John Collins (a journalist., dead these many years) appeared on the list of the temporary of the House with a good salary attached. Sir Richard, rising, enquired, "Is this John Collins the same gentleman who recently wrote a biography of the First Sir is; and what of Sir nothing, but I merely wish to remark that I am glad to note that a gentleman who in his time has done justice to so many John Collinses should in his declin- ing years find a John Collins who could do justice to him." The loud burst of laughter which followed was led by Sir John him- self, who could appreciate a good joke even if it was directed against himself.

In main, it is dis- counted by the preliminary report of last session but some informa- tion is added. The cost is to be one hundred million dollars. The plan advocated is to have the summit le- vel above Lake Xippising. To use Lake Xippising as the summit level would cost an additional ten millions at least and introduce twelve addi- tional miles of canal cutting. The water supply conditions' are satisfaci tory.
