(Continued From Front Page.) most interesting feature of yesterday's meeting was the tion of the Provincial Treasurer tnat a. letter had been forwarded, to Ottar wa. This was tantamount to the signification that the Provincial Gov- ernment had reopened negotiations with the Federal, Government. What that letter contained has not been dlruiged, but it would appear that it has paved the way for an agreement to oome to between the two Gov- ernments to solve tbe present im- passe. H was well to hear from Mr, -Mitchell, as the mouthpiece of the i Government, that it there was any impression that hia Government was stubborn in the matter. of Irrigation, it was a wrong one. it was algo wel- come to knov; ihat the Government does not resent the recent agitation but has at least done something to. so to speak, start all over again with the Dominion Government to maXi tho lycthbridgo .Northern Irrigation project a practical one. How tbl communication will be received by lh Ottawa Government Is at the prcsen time a matter of deep Interest. It ca and has many arrears said Mr. Marnoch.

Crofts The flrst ot the five-minute speak- ers hilled to address the meeting, out- side the main speakers, was T. W. Crofts, chairman of the Northern irrigation project.. Ihe resolution that.was to bo put to the meeting, and expressed the strong desire of Ihe farmers, in the district the government had no more faith in tKe bankers It was- time to pull oiit. L. Peterson iBarnwell, 'went back .'to a meeting :ncld soine years hack In Calgary in vvhich, hs reminded the audience, the statement was mado" by Hon. Duncan Marshall in wbicli he said that it was not a mat- tor so much of bringing in now set- tlers as of keeping those we had. That the policy at the present time in getting the irrigation project going to keep the men on the land. If Iho irrigation of the Letlibriitge Northern is rroceeTied with it will be something of hope to other farmers to hold on, in ihat it would mean that irrigation In other districts would follow. Tho government continue relief; it must come to an end some time; The farmers themselves were not desirous of charity, they wanted work which that construction on the project should be started right away. W. H. Hunter the construction-of the Lelhbridge Northern would afford. Kever was there a better lime, he sairl, for the officials to put Into practice what Hon. Seconding tho resolution, W. H.
