Phone 98 Edmonton, Jan. 23.-The Legislature spent most of the week' considering the speech from the throne. It was expected that Mr. Bredin would make a good speech and he did. It was a modest statement ot facta concerning the record of the Rutherford administration, a vivid portrayal of the resources and future of Alberta. Naturally Mr. Bredin's eye was to the North Land. No one knows the north better than the member for Athabaaka, and no member of the House is more familiar with its literature and earl/' history. It was an eye opener to the House and to tlie galleries to learn from him that farming was first begun in Alberta at points aSO and 400 miles north of the present capital of the province. The first experiment was made 130 years ago in Major Pond's garden at the confluence of the Atha-basks and Clearwater rivers. Great enthusiasm was manifested by the House when the Speaker laid on the table samples of fully matured and fully cured samples of wheat and oata almost: equal to, the famous Turkey Red of the South. Other products of the rich North were produced- salt, gypsum, oil, sand, aephaltum and coal. In connection with the foregoing it is interesting to know that potatoes have been successfully and-successively grown up to the Arctic Circle. Mr. Bredin's reference to,.' Alberta as a three-decker was a striking way to express our great natural wealth. We have soil the most fertile in the world, the humus of the decayed vegetation of ten thousand centuries doubly virgin. First in that it has never been eroded or carried off by ice or water, and second that its riches have never been impoverished by, cultivation. If Mr. Rreidin extolled the unex-ploited riches of the North, Mr. J. W. Woolf gave vivid description of the solid achievement of the South. Hundreds of thousands of good milling and seed wheat had been produced in 1907 south of the C. P. R. Mr. Woolf's prestige as a successful wheat and cattle rancher gave his words' the imprimatur of authority He holds sane . and advanced views on the cattle question as it affects Alberta. He is thoroughly conversant with every'detail.- He pointed out that butcher cattle are selling, at a dollar less in Winnipeg than exports and claimed this disparity was top great. . As a solution he advocated cold storage, abbattoirs, freight cars and ships to the British Market. By this means the export trade would be immensely increased aa the greater portion of our . butcher stock would be available for export under these conditions. The average weight of butcher cattle going to Winnipeg is about 1,000 pounds. The introduction of the sye tem suggested would mean an increase of about $10 per head for all butcher cattle which would mean at least half a million dollars more for the cattle owners of Alberta. Mr. Woolf paid a sincere tribute to the Rutherford government for the direct and beneficial legislation for the people during the last two years The affairs of the province were be ing administered with strength and expedition. It was not a gevrnment of Utopian policies, but one of action and honesty. Considerable mirth was aroused, infectious enough to kindle a smile on the stolid taciturnity of the leader of the Opposition, by Mr. Bredin's statement that the north and south parts of the provinco were the only portions. so far advanced in public sentiment as to have prohibition. The debate was continued on Tuesday afternoon by Mr. Robertson, leader of the Opposition. His address was given with good temper but with bad form and taste especially for on-j with a college training. The leader of the Opposition has a woeful lack oc artiBtic Bensc. There was no due proportion giving emphasis to the salient points of his speech. His words of congratulation may read well, but their well-meaning lost their warmth and cordiality by the whining sneering tone in which they were delivered. With what was mentioned in the King's speech the leader of the Op-pos ition had no quarrel. All that was. left thereforo for attack was what wast not mentioned. First he handed out a lemon to the Canadian banks, and declared the system wanting in elasticity and adaptability to the nation's needs. This was a most unhappy reference., If there is one feature that has been distinctive of the Canadian banking system it is the very elasticity that Mr. Robertson bewails the absence of. Bnt the supremo excellence of the system is that its elasticity has never imperil- ed its stability. In proof whereof witness the-quiet passing out of the" Sovereign Bank without a panic, scare or loss to depositors. "Compare the buccaneering tactics o* the rich malefactors who pushed the Knickerbocker Trust to the wall in New York last October. Mr. Robertson's diatribe would apply to the United States system admirably. Possibly he does not, know that many of the features in the bill now before Congress for the reform of the currency are copied from Canada and England. The leader "of the Opposition has recently developed a belated sympathy for the farmers of the province and reiterated a good many of the old chestnuts that comprise the stock in trade of the demagogue. By inuendo, rather than definite state- menChtj laid the ills of the farming industry at the door of the provincial government-the coal shortage, the railway monopoly, the high prise of lumber, and generally relied upon his imagination for his facta to prove his case. Mr. Robertson's sincerity in these, matters can be at once discredited when it is remembered that it was his political chiefs and preceptors who created the C. P. R. railway monopoly. The more is this true when again, it is remembered I that the high officials of the C. P. R. are interested in the lumber company which is managed by Mr. Robertson. Wonder if he has any difficulties re freight rates since he hooked up with the C. P. R. in the lumber business? He appropriated the idea given out by Hon. Mr. Cushing last session as his own, viz: That the government should, it conditions warrant, obtain control of certain coal areas to relieve the people from a fuel famine when Iisaber.-i4(^f H verameat's policy .was ots*:dis�li^|;| ;c > in favor, of railways, -.^flilss^wwi favor of > railway--Uo^^"�sj| lands of the north. A eosapajsy.ti been active duririgthe^ past yeas promoting such a railway. If 1 construction is too long delayed I government is not averse to hold of the project. The liquor law of which �he Objbb-sition complained was working saiis-faotorily and was well abreast of tkm concensus of the public' opinio* oit this question as far aa Alberta west concerned, . Though sjrreefng to Um asafn vttfc the government's telephone poller Mat leader of the Opposition was sfcriskr ing fon a commission *o �dmi�is4ar M. To this the premier replied that as the telephone system was i� tfsr Initial stages the matter should ss> left in the hands of the fssf>oss*fjla minister. The people in the proves** have confidence in Mr. Cushing's *�-IlKy and Integrity to establish satf administer the. telephone system �r Alberta until the final stisges et shall be reached. The govei did not Intend to follow the lea* *C Manitoba in appointing ssi expenssva commission until the systasn wosM warrant it. It was when the' premier replied tn> Mr. Robertson's startstnent that Mi- * berta was inferior In status to Mssk Hoba and the other provinces the*. he one of his strongest thrusts. The leader of the Opposition harped, on the financial arrangements of At-^ berta. The Premier pointed out that Mr. Robtin was at this very moment petitioning ths federal government at Ottawa for better terms that wonld put Manitoba on terms "of equality ' with Alberta and Saskatchewan. . The leader of the Opposition eriU- .': cized the publication of the report eC the Beef Commission. -As he had-- -been copious In his tributes to Mr. Roblin, the premier twitted the loader of the Opposition with his inconsistency. It was the old story of striving at the gnat and gulping ot the camel over, again. Mr. Robertson was ready to cri-tlclaa the pho-lishing of the report of the beef com-, mission before 1 consulting the legislature, yet he had only praise fo;- Ms great exemplar Mr. Roblin in -co*-:' -sumating a- money transaction i�4 -solving an addition to the provincial, debt of $3,000,000 ten days before the legislature met'. Having paid his respects to the !**-  der of tho Opposition Premier Ruth- .> eirford entered into an exhaustive defense of his administration. If they.-desired to obtain a revenue basis. "' � ^ �:� j-J, The premier prophesied that the worst fearturcs of -the financial stringency had passed and that Alberta, ' would have a good crop and prosper-ity In the coming year. He pointed out the danger, of farmers sowing inferior seed grain, and announced that the government was- co-operatmgi : with the railway companies and the  department of the interior to have a an'adequate supply of good;seed : grain on hand for purchase by the farmers. The province was bound to ; have a large measure of prosperity v. on account of the extensive railway ; construction. FAMOUS CHESS PLAYER DEA'f St. Petersburg, Jan. 87.-T.
