The question Is now j under conettention, and a definite statement wiM be ready, It is under- stood, for the approacilng legisla- ture, Some applications for auletanco in the way et seed grain auppltei have already been They are from districts tWit were hit hy crop failurea last year, but represent only A small proportion of the territory ai compared with the situation a year ago. It Is an assured fact that the demand for government aid will be greatly reduced, because of the gen- erally better crops, and the situation will be dealt with accordingly. Minister'! Statement Hon. Duncan Marshall says that the applications will be taken up on their merits and where found, on in- vestigation, to be bona fide and urgent some system tt relief will be provided. But it has not yet been decided upon what basis or in what way this relief will be given. It Is very well known that the at- titude of Premier Stewart and his cab- inet has been against a too-generous scheme of seed grain relief, and it was generally admitted in govern- ment circles last spring that never again would the work be handled aa it had been. Further restrictions and a still greater care in the distribution would be the rule for the' future, it was felt, the policy of the government being strongly opposed to an over- encouragement of paternalism. At the same time, it was recognized and is recognized now, that some measure of relief is necessary in ur- gent cases. Whatever IB done from now on will likely be on a somewhat narrower and stricter plan.
