Boyle, member for Sturgeon, is given in full fcelow. It was late when Hon. C. W. Cross rose to reply but in hie of al- most two hours, he held the attention of the House and the spectators, who crowded the hall. In his opening remarks he congratu- lated the junior member for Calgary (Mr. Bennett) and the Tory party of the province in the accession to their ranks in the person of the honorable member for Sturgeon (Mr. And it was with great pleasure that he took advantage of the opportunity of discussing this matter frankly and can- didly on the floor of the House and with the Honorable members of the legislature.

The member for Sturgeon had talk- ed as if the railways were tumbling over themselves to build new lines. He had lived in Edmonton for eleven years and for six years of that time Edmonton was crying for a railway, but could get none despite the beat ef- forts of her citizens.

Fertile Northland Unopened In referring to the Alberta and Great Waterways railway the attorney gen- eral pointed out that south of the Sas Icatchewan river there was hardly a free homestead in the country. The government then would have been rec- reant to its duty had it not done something to open up the vast acreage of unoccupied hut fertile country lying to the north. On the public platform in the last campaign he had said that instead of population or so in Edmonton there would be a hundred thousand, and in Alberta instead of ithere would be a million with- n the next few" years.

These were adopted by the Dominion of Canada, the Pro- vince of Saskatchewan and the engin- eer of the Railway Commission, and when .these were adopted by the Dom- inion of Canada, by the Province of Saskatchewan and by the Railway Commission, why shouldn't Alberta ad- opt them. And the Dominion govern- ment were now guaranteeing the road from Edmonton to the mountains at a mile on identically the same specifications as the one for the Al- berta and Great Waterways Railway.

The country through which the Alberta and Great Waterways Railway, is to run for 100 miles along the Hne from Edmonton is the best in Alberta, and for the next ts railway policy there was one thing as much as any other that justified him in bis stand for railway expansion. When the railway policy was announc- ed last year the C. P. R. commenced to build new branches and made the big- gest development of any year of the past. This year when no further guarantees had been announced, the statement waa issued by the C. P. R. that they would only construct forty- five miles of new line in 1910 in Al- berta. There should be no sectional feeling in this question. The wholesale peo- ple of Calgary would benefit as much as any others with openeing up of the country' to the north.- The new Hne would mean as much to the south of the province as it did to the north. 444444 444444444444444 44444444444-44444444444 Mr. Cushinfl's Speech.

The portion of the speech referred to was as follows: Mr. Cushing, after dealing at some length with the government railway policy in regard to the G. T. P. and the C. N.
