Side Utgfcts FEATURES OF NEW LAND BILL x "THE MINNESOTA EDITORS Lethbricige aiid tho whole of Alber- ts bids 'a. most hearty welcome to the members of the Mimic-sola toriul Association who arc our guests this afternoon and evening. Ol ull the visitors this country has had hot drinks, none.are more welcome. In no nlaco Don't mind is the power of tho press more gone out. It predated than iu a country iu the process oi development, for '-hut de- velopment depends almost upon the manner in which, the; are given to the general public cy the newspapers and magazines 1-oth iu the- place concerned and [n outer world. It is only by the rec- ognition by the press of the uatu.-" resources of the country and by its dissemination1 of the facts that peo- ple and capital can be brought to the country to help on the work developing these resources. 'J liere is no party of men who are :.u a bet- ter position to understand the situ ation in Alberta than the editors vi sitibg us today. Coming as they do from, a state which during recent years has gone through the same -pe- riod of growth and faced the saau. problems that confront this provinc they are in a position to appreci-iU-. the position of affairs here. Their problems of twenty cv thirty years ago are ours of today. They iuul the same difficulty in getting fail- publicity in the outside world. They had to solve our problem of getting people and money into the state to make their fertile soil productive 01 wealth. The large question of the transportation of their products to the markets at fair rates as well as getting their needs brought from the manufacturer quickly and cheaply had to be solved by them as it has by .us. This kinship of difficult prob lems brings them into particularly your city. close relationship with us. This re- lationship >s still closer because of the fact that thousands of their peo- ple have already come to settle am- ong us and are playing a large part in making' tliis country one of tho greatest granaries of the world. Al- berta will speedily become another Minnesota but we expect to be even a greater and a better. The Canadian West in general and Alberta in particular has not always had the fairest of treatment from American press. Our good qualities, the greatness" of-our resources anil the success of our enterprises have frequently been minimized and ridic- uled by the newspapermen across tlw line. At the same time they have magnified what failures there may have been and the reverse's that have occasionally been our lot. In SOUK- cases this apparently has been a de- liberate effort to knock this country for the purpose presumably of pre- venting American people and Ameri- can money from coming across tho line. In the majority of instances we are pleased to think it has been the result of ignorance of the rea1 facts. For this reason the people in' Alberta feel particularly pleased witli A FEW DON'TS FOR HOT WEA- THER Dou't worry about bills for coal.

Ouo of the most wide- spread of thtse is the idea, which las got into the heads of thousands f people that anyone who has cona- leted his home-stcaii duties is ontit- ed, under the new act, to enter for second homestead if he wishes to. 'here is no such provision, however, itber in the bill as introduced last ear or in the bill which was passed bis session.

Frank, July Master H. Hogbin and Deputy Grand Master Scott, oi the A. F. A. M. of the Grand Lodge, of Alberta, visited Cok- man last night for the purpose o consecrating" Summit Lodge No. 3( installing the officers. A la .lumber of Frank Masons drove up to Cok-man to witness the cerenion ien, after which about fifty of the brethren and visitors attended a banquet provided by Summit Lodge ut the Cole-man Hotel. Spc-eclies and songs were tho features of the even- ing, the- party bn-aking up at about try are practically the same under the new us under the. old dence for six months in each of three years and erection of a habitable house. The area to be, cultivated is not specified. It is to be such "as is satisfactory to the Minister." The reason for this is that some farms j trnption fee, ami the balance five may present greater difficulty in clearing brush or stone than others, and allowance is made in adminis- tration for these facts. Residence on the farm of a relative within nine mile.4; of the homestead is accepted by the Act as residence on the stead, and failure on the part of the lomesteader to apply for letters pa- ent within five years of the date of ntry makes his right to the home- stead liable to forfeiture. PROVISIONS The preemption and purchased home stead provisions apply only to the are specially set apart as shown on the map. Nor does ft apply to all the public land in this area. The territory is further limited. First no township is open for pre- emption or purchased homesteads un- til it is designated as available for these purposes by the governor-gen- eral-in-council, which means, in efiect the Minister of the Interior. Pre- sumably, the government will an- j and cultivation duties. It will thus be seen that the pre- emption provision is not of very great importance. Settlers wishing to take advantage of it must go to the less desirable localities. THE CH1F.F FEATURE The chief of the bill is the provision enabling homesteaders to an acre. Clause 2S of the Act mak- ing reads as follows; Any person who obtains u. home- stead entry under the provisions of this act, but. owing to 'the absence of available land adjoining his home- I steed is prevented from exercising his right of pre-emption unuer the next preceding section, or has obtain etl entry for a homestead under the provisions of Chapter 55 of the re- vised statutes. 1906, or of any pre- vious act iu that behalf, and is pre- The person who has already "had a homestead will be able to buy a sec- ond homestead for an acre, sub- ject to settlement conditions, In the area sot forth on the map. If his homestead is on the pre-emption area he can pre-empt in place of purchas- ing, but the price is the same, it comes to pretty much the same thing It is the provision for the purchas- ing of second homesteads that ts of direct interest to the fanners of the three provinceu.
