Plain Talk to Railways The premier, in response to a re- quest from Mr. Macdonnell, handed out some plain railway talk. He ex- pected, and the railwavs expected, that the government's railway policy as announced a few months ago, would be carried out.' As far as he was concerned the railways need not expect any additional help until the present understanding is carried out. The G.T.P. will have no difficulty in completing the lines guaranteed" by 1911. The premier hoped to have the south connected with three trans- continental lines. The C. JsT. JR. are busy gratiing on the line heading for Macleod, .and will have the line from Calgary to Vegreville graded this year and 150 miles in. operation. This road can easily be into-Mac- leod by 3911.

Tie still held tho; opinion that the province should own its resources, but approved guaran- teeing the bonds of railways and the good work would continue as the country is badly in need of railways. He stated that the Con- servatives were prepared to go far- om Montreal that many steamships iling from. Montreal are carrying i water ballast instead of the usual grain cargoes, are not taken by the Buffalo grain men to mean that the great bulk of the grain business over the Montreal route has been diverted to Buffalo, as stated in the press despatches sent out from the Canad- ian city. As a matter of fact the grain receipts at Buffalo show a. falling off of bushels. The grain brought to Buffalo -between the opening of navigation and the date last year amount to bus. Reports today show that the grain receipts at Buffalo total bushels. Grain is moving very slow- ly and if Montreal is feeling the efi'ect of the sluggish movement, it is also true that the Buffalo elevators are not flooded. is probably true that the'boat from Montreal are earring water ba said "George E.
