It is no doubt taken somewhat by surprise by the announcement that the Govern- jcct. AVe should all work as a unit mcnt is- to thc buildmg for all are dependent on the same con- ditions for our prosperity. The Go- vernment had given every- part of the Province n square deal and would con tine to.do so at whatever cost. The Premier spoke of the Quebec celebration as a great historical event and believed it would awaken a keen of branches up and down the pro- vince, and a careful observer will soon see the high minded C.P.H. getting busy in more ways than rail- way building. The promise of a great corporation ought to "be as good as its bond if the promise of the C.P.R. were of any declaration of intention tojeternal of representation by [amend tho Compensation Act and set 1 wcv'lld Sovern. He declar- [forth a number of amendments deemed by thc Opposition to be urgent. He I recommended compulsory insurance to f cover losses and that the government there could be no such thing of the rights of the wanted for a j should arrange-to E available, and he Act amended to provide j; guarantee of compcnsKtiion. He had notion that the Act provided that la worker on a "building must fall thir- l-iy feet or more fefore he could recover for an injury." .He pointed finis out as a ridiculous" clause, which no doubt would be, but Attoniey- General Cross, put the Speaker wise to bis faulty information.

Mr. Robertson desired it to be known that he was in hearty sympa- for political ends. Right is the best policy, and the teachings of all wis- Ihe nccessarv 5''nCC lhe" nad demon- Utrated the fact. In the matter of Hail Insurance-the Premier declared that the farming- in- interest in the schools. He dwelt upon the cordial relations existing be- tween the United States and Canada and welcomes the arrangement foe joint conference for the preservation of the natural resources. He express- ed the belief that the timber of.On- tario, the source of such great reven- ue in the past would soon' the source of great expense to that Pro- vince and marked, the fact as a great demonstration of tho wisdom of pro- per measures for the conservation of such resources. The Premier expressed a willingness to allow the acts of the government to be judged by the criticism of the terests did not want the revenue to ILeader of the Opposition. be seriously effected. They do not want samething for nothing, and when they know that the present plan has cost in the last three years some more than the receipts, wi'th a rate of loss increasing nmiually at a frightful speed they will realize that Between the demand for the acqui- sition of the elevator interests by tfce Government, the demand for the es- tablishment of a pork packing indus- try, the demand for the furnishing of insurance against total loss of crops and for the guaranteeing of insurance even insurance for fifteen cents is iri connection with the Compensation ;thy with-the Act and believed it to ;be a very .wise and beneficial piece of legislation. The leader of the Opposition was [sorry that no expression was made as the Government's intention in re- rgard to the acquisition of elevators. He deemed the subject one of the [greatest importance, and pointed out jthe imperative need for legislation in [this connection. At least the govern- should arrange to provide acldi- jtional warehouse facilities at the [shipping for the accommoda- of-men who have to haul such [long distances. He believed that go- tvernment ownership of the elevators impractical.

The C.P.R. gave definite promise that the Stettler and Hardisty would be completed more than a year ago and the country was long ago settled up in the belief that thc road meant what it promised, and nowhere else in all the great northwest is there to .oe found the hardship and discontent experienced out there.

The G-overnment would endeavor to discover some equitable adjustment of the matter, and he recommended the matter to the consideration of the House. In the matter of the pork packing industry, the Premier reminded the Leader of the Opposition that tbe last session appropriated an amount to enable a commission to enquire in- to the needs of the industry. The [would secure [prices, better better weights, better Commission had only lately reported grades, and save the aud the Government had not had op- portunity to go into the report to as- certain its recommendations. He point ed out how the Government could not do otherwise than abide by the recom mendations of the report and if that was for the establishment of a pack- ing plant, the thing would be done. The matter of the acquisition of the grain elevators was a new subject and the grain growers themselves were not of a single mind in regard to it.
