As a matter of the Alberta government dirt assume responsibility for irrigation development al the last session of the Legislature.. when 11 provided an as- 'surarice fund 'protect the interest on irrigatiou bonds. Since It seems Impossible to dispose ft the bonds with'this assurance fund. is now urged that a full .guarantee of bonds be given in order that the districts ib urgently in need of Irrigation may avail themselves of its benefits. It has been said that with a full guaran- tee It may bo. possible to dispose of the bonds at an attractive figure on the money markets without any co-op- eration whatever from tbe Dominion; On tne other hanu, the Herald claims that if the-government wants to avail iUelf of it can 'get the money al Ottawa .at. far as the Herald is concerned its cole concern is that irrigation develop- ment should be undertaken without Wejully'believe that there is no risk fn putting the Province's :dredil behind the lyslhbridge Northern' project.
