L THE ALBERTA LEGISLATURE A Glimpse at the Provincial From the Press Gallery (Special Correspondence) Edmonton, Alia., Feb. the farmers of Southern Alberla are being told by FedcmJ candidates tlmt tha Borden govern- ment "kegt them from the Alberta legislature is in session, and chiefest mno-ng the Importimt items of business is the passing of an act de- manded by the Otta'wa government giving the Federal authorities power to enforce a lien on the lands o[ the farmers, the mortgage to take priority over "all other encumbrances. It is- true that the act will only affect seed grain and feed for horses during: the spring work, but it Is not the fault of the Ottawa government that the act does not also, include power to give the lien for relief supplies precedence .over other creditors. Premier Sitton refused to place the farmers in aay such position, and Is passing the pre- sent act because it is apparently the only terms the Federal government wojuld supply seed The upsbcL of the Ottawa policy Is that the farmers of Southern Alberta who .accepted relief aud who need seed grain .is that their credit else- where is .absolutely destroyed. The Bordeir government will have a prior lien on their land, despite the fact that loan companies loaned money on tha security of a first and not only does the Dorden government take the first mortgage for the seed grain, but it a'lao lakes on a further lieu fcr relief distributed this past ivblch Conservative candidates are Impudently attempting to capitalize for political benefit by coolly telling, the farmers that they would have starved had it not been for the Borden government.
