Mr. Peters. he believed il 'could be explaiaeil greatly Impressed. The minister is greatly concerned over the possibility of trrlcatton, Iri Southern Alberta, its p uecd and about tho various projects. "Mr. Uucbauan 'mentioned critl9lsm which had been direclcd against any proposal to spend money for irriga- tion. He disagreed entirely, with that view. government, he declared, had been responsible for bringing the people inlo the settlements which it 5a now possible to place under Irriga- tion. It bad cost the government money to keep these people on tbe land through the necessity ot supply- ing seed grain and relief at different times, and this ytar there has beeo_a great need for bringing In hay. "In my judgment tbe government fa war- ranted in going to some expense in the people on the land and helping them get crops every year.'" Another reason put forward fay Mr. for urging the project was that Canada has a big debt to pay, and how can it be paid .unless Canada sees to it that her natural resources are developed, and how belter can bo developed in Southern Alberta than by applying surplus water from the streams to the land in the way of Ir- rigation. He said that' Ihe problem of tbe farmers was lo convince Ibe government that the farmers want the' water from the proposed project, and he.felt sure the government would do its best to supply it. He advocated petition from every fanner In Ihe dis- trict possible of Irrigation to the gov- ernment, urging on Ottawa the- need of seeing tbat the work is undertaken. President Marnoch President Marnoch of the board of U-ade put some plain fads before the meeting. He declared that .for sik years the Irrigation department had known U was feasible to water the lands under discussion, but until now. the farmers interested had not raised However, ihe main thing1 convince the government that, while they bad been a long time' making np their, minds to.asfe for the. water, they were In earnest about It.

Ho thcta DU to talk of ihe prac- ncal nee4 ol Irrigation as meane ot preventing soil drifting, aurt clUtl the troubles of couthenv wan where the would be only too pleased to secure but could, net. He told ot the change lu altltudo towards Irrigation In tho past ten years In this part of tbe pror- Ince noil explained tho steps which should be taken. In closlug he gave a warn tag that., "while a good start had been made In the day's? meeting, It would be necessary to follow up elostly. "Stay right wltb it now you have started." District Delegates Expressions of opinion were then heard from a representative from -h dlstHot.

Hoatttu, ol Foraniosi, said they trdro importing a lot of feed. Even In Iho good rears they had to Import feed for their clock, and any plan to overcome this would be welcomed. Bishop Fawns, of Staling, said thay had some Irrigation at Stirling anil had learned Its benefits by actual ex porlence. He would like to see the Dominion government undertake the project as tha United States la Ing; that IE, build tbe ditches, charge tbe cost against the land beuefltteO anil turn It over to' the farmers as a completed project. 'At Stirling there had been" 65 men at the meeting the day before and they had voted unani raously io support tho proposed pro- ject Mr. of Etztkom, said the farmers of his district wouid welcome any plan to bring them water and feed for their Block." John PowelsoD, of Raymond, who has been one of Ihe active figures In bringing about the organization lo Us present state, said It would require a lot of bard work lo' carry the project through, for soild supporl trora every district. Mr. Ostluhd, of Stirling, raised some questions about the surely of Bupply, aod though1! that the committee should first see whether the C. P.
