From the station Mr. 'Marnoch went straight to (he Board ot Trade building where a large number of representa- tive citizens bad gathered to consider tho new situation that bad arisen in connection with the North- ern Irrigation project. The tiucstlon oi the proposed legislation was taken up with a strong anil unanimous feel- ing sliowr) egainst it. Gathering up the strands from Ot- lawa, where he bad been busy' for the last three weeks in interviewing members o[ the federal government and financial houses, Mr. Marnoch beld that the doubt In regard to the laWer was' that the Irrig-ation Act had not been proved in the experience of "working. It was put to hini by the' financial men that the in'regard1 to munt'cipal and corporation bonds had been tried out in the practical wording but there bad not been the i same experience with regard to irri- gation bonds. He felt that tiie mere fact of the provincial government guar- anteeing the irrigation bonds would put its seal of confidence in the prac- tical working ot the Irrigation Act.
