CANADA AND ITS RAILWAYS RB. BENNETT is back in Calgary after mak- ing his fight at Ottawa and apparently he has lost few friends. To the Morning Alberian at Calgary lie granted an interview in which he ex- plained the difference between the S45.000.000 aid bill for the C. X. R. and the asked b> the G. T. P. He said of the latter that "the grant was justi- fied as it was in lulfilment of a contract which had been entered into with the company by the Crown in perfect good and that it was nothing to split hairs whereas Mackenzie and Mann made their raid on the treasury for "nothing." The session just about to close has been one of the most important in the history of Canada because of the railway legislation which has placed on the statutes. It has brought b.-fon. the electors of the Dominion in a most forcible way the relation of Hie country to the railroads, and we believe most people have a better con- ception of where Canada stands as regards itb big railway-corporations. One fact would s'eem to stand with the completion of the three transcontinental lines Canada will have enough to meet the needs of the people for a few years to come, and the Dominion should not further be to lend its credit for railway purposes until the lines now under way are completed: and the country which''can he served by them by means of feed- ers is thoroughly developed. With the' C. N. R., the C. P. R. and the G. T. P. with branch and subsidiary lines we will have enough railway accommodation to serve many millions more people. What the railways should do now is to take some of the advise they ore handing out to the develop what territory they have and make the best of it. THE LETHBRIDGE-WEYBURN LINE IT WENT against the grain yesterday to pub- lish that the Lethbridge-Weyburn line of the C. P. R. would be completed for sure "next year." The Herald has published that very same promise so many times during the past three or four years that people are not taking much stock in it any more. However, this time Vice President Bury was emphatic, while hitherto, he was more or less hopeful rather than emphatic. The Herald believes that this time the C. P. R. means business with a capital "B" and the second main line from Lethbridge to "Winnipeg will be in readiness to move the 1915 crop. What Mr. Bury says about the methods of Some of the homesteaders along the line is likely quite true. We have not investigated. But we have some sympathy with the fanners. They have something to say on their side. They went into the country, and pioneered it, believing thai a road would be through in a couple of years to help them farm with some degree of comfort and satisfaction. The continual putting-off has not been good for the tempers of the" farmers, and if they have fallen away from the best methods of farming they probably have some excuse. But Mr. Bury has promised that the road will be completed next year, the farmers will then Lave their road, and we can look, for satisfaction on all sides. The C. P. R. will keep its promise, and we hope the fanners will heed advice to fidopt better methods. between himself and Uncle Sam for the time be- ing. Let us give him the benefit of the doubt arid say that the latter was the cause of his recindinj the order. He has gained the approval of the nations of the world by so doing. There is.no hope that his action will have any effect hi sav- ing to him the presidential chair. Hia one hope now is that the mediators will conclude their work successfully, and with Carranza represent- atives present too, before the rebels reach Mexico City, which they threaten to do before long. Huerta will never retire with much grace, but he will be wise to accept the terms of the mediation tribunal, arid retire as gracefully as possible, hi any event his days as president are numbered. OUK POINT OF VIEW It is said that the day of the dreadnought is passing; what with the aeroplane above and the torpedo below they would worry the life out of the big ship. Sort of a case of the "lion and the mouse." Eastern papers are not saying anything good about Southern Alberta's oil fields. Well, most of us have heard more that is bad than good about the.Klondyke; nevertheless millions of gold continue to come out of the frozen north every vear. HUKKTA'S GOOD MOVE IT MAY be that Provisional President Huerta decided to liimself that discretion was the hel- ler part of valor when lie gave the order that Ihc proposed blockade of Tampico be abandoned. It may be also, that he decided that after all he jcoiild lose by letting have Jhcir way without precipitating further trouble About Christmas time you couldn't get down a Winnipeg street without being held up by a broker wanting you to buy stock in sonie gold mine company in the Beaver Lakes district, north of Le Pas.' But we didn't notice that the Win- nipeg papers were slating the gold companies very hard. It was alright, because it was in Manitoba. But oil in Alberta is different. Mackenzie and Mann landed their. 000. Wouldn't this be a psychological moment :o touch the railway wizards up once more to lurry a branch line into Southern Alberta. We have the had for many years. Let the C. N. R. spend a few of those millions in re- deeming it. The commissioners are putting before the people shortly six money bylaws calling for the expenditure of In view of the temper of the money market just now, we would respect- fully suggest to the commissioners that they do a little publicity work explaining the need of this money. Judging from the reception money by- laws are receiving in other western cities, it is well that the ratepayers thoroughly understand what the expense is all about. The Edmonton Ad Club is behind a movement to thoroughly investigate and report on all oil companies doing business in Alberta. The move is a good one if properly conducted. Alberta papers are not claiming that.all oil companies being organized are good. -We.seem to have an over supply, .'and some of them will never amount to But many of them are as thoroughly reliable as any prospecting concern can be. Oil is an elusive substance and hard to find. If1 it were not it would not be1 worth going after. 'In the meantime with so many different prospectus- es before us, we must do our beit, if we have any money to gamble in the game; to pick out one with the best recommedations., If the money is spent in drilling a well in a place where, an expert says the indications are worth the none of iis have any reason to grouch if nothing conies. We will know that we did .our best, but that we failed to outguess nature. So long as we are not outguessed by (lie promoters we have nothing to worry about.
