LTD. also that the terms are fair. I would like the shareholders to rwilizp tha am interested in this guarantee. It is only fair that you should know that I am on both sides of the fence. We may take it that ihu laud to be irri- gated certainly will have a value of not less than the security, therefore, is ample. At the same time we must realize that it is thanks to the lenders that we are able to put through this large scheme and make! j our assets so valuable. We there- fore felt that the lenders were entit- led to a certain share of the profits which their money would enable the company to make. We have provided for these profits by giving them an option on reserve shares of the com- pany. Some shareholders would pro- bably ask what would happen if the whole of the shares were to be called; arid I want to make it quite clear to you that in the event of the whole be'hampered. If the shares are call ed, the Debenture holder will gain iu security and should be satisfied. On the other hand, it might suit the com- pany to pay off the debentures, in which case they will have power to re- deem the debentures at six months notice at 105. In this case the deben- ture holder has done well. It is quite possible, however, that the company may find that they can invest the pro- ceeds if., better advantage than by paying offj the debentures.

This, from its situation and natural advan- tages should be one of the towns in Southern Alberta when we get rail- way connections, which we hope to do very soon.

"Vast Potentialities" I told you last year that our land holding is equal to that of the whole county of Surrey. Today it is prac- tically bare plain; but, given f M selves to pay off the debentures.

There will be all sorts of subsidiary undertakings, and we ought to be in a position to participate in them. Thanks to the energy of our managing director, we have secured the charter Today there are in that place three hotels, iour general stores, and a suffi- cient population to incorporate the town. This will give you some idea of the progress that is being made. Lots have been sold at each, and I see by the paper which I received yesterday that the Imperial Bank has bought land and is starting to erect a bank, so that you will realize that things are moving fast out there.

This exchange, he said had mad the property more com you are interested is one whicli may i pact, which was an advantage, be the largest and' most lucrative enterprises -taken up in Western Canada. I hope I have made it quite clear t-hat today we have assured, ourselves of 000 by from our .own funds. For this we give ah option, to the lenders of one share-at 30s. for each of debenture stock. If the whole of the option was exercised, therefore, the company would have an issued capital of 000 of debentures. Ag- ainst .this the company would have in cash, being proceeds of shares, at 30s., and would already Jhav.e been expended in irrigation, :which. wduld, I believe, gree a value to the property o'f at least sterling. In addition to this you. would have a large rental annually from irrigation of a vast tract of country which'is already set- tled and crying for'water. ask you consider this, proposition, and we. hope very much that holders, will show their appreciation of the vast potentialities of this com- pany by subscribing" to the deben- tures, thereby securing for themselves the .benefit of the options and.a large share in the future profits of the com- pany. (Applause.) The chairman: call upon Mr.; cause in irrigation the larger the ir rigable area the better. In other word; the more of the land covered by the lateral the better the proposition was In regard to the company's property he was glad to say that they, held pro- bably the largest blocks that could be irrigated fromt one line of ditch that there were America. Twenty- five per cent, was considered quite a large amount of land to irrigate, but in lots of townships which this com- pany had, they could irrigate 75 per cent. The prospects of the company were now in excellent shape, and they could begin to sell irrigated land next spring. In conclusion, he could only recommend the shareholders' to read carefully Mr. Anderson's report in or- der to realize what a fine property they had under this irrigation scheme. (Applause.) The resolution was carried unani- mously. Mr. Grenfell then moved: "That Major-General Sir Eonald Lane and Mr. E. A. Hitchcock be and-they-are hereby re-elected directors of the com- pany." In doing so he remarked that j in connection with the work the past the 'directors 'had not hurried them- selves-' iii any way. They h-ad taken their time, although considerable pres- sure had been brought to bear upon McGregor to say a few words to you. them by shareholders to hurry things forward so that they might have some substantial result of their work. He thought that the scheme which had been brought forward on that occa- sion showed that the -policy adopted in the past had not only been a con- Statement by Mr. McGregor Mr. James Mr. Gren fell has told you that since I came here last year, we have made an en- tire change in our scheme of irrigation Upon going a little further into the matter of surveys we found that we could get onto the property by tak- ing our water out of the south side of tht Bow River, and this necessitated a change. in our lands, which we were able to arrange satisfactorily. We found that by taking out our canal on the opposite side of the river we were able to utilize a large natural- reservoir, consisting of a large de- servative one, but had been in the) interests of the shareholders. For that policy the shareholders had most ly to thank the chairman, Sir Ronald Lane. He therefore, had no hesita- tion in proposing the re-election of the chairman and Mr. Hitchcock, as he was sure the shareholders would un- animously re-elect them.
