EDMONTON, March an all-day cabinet meeting Satur- day, the ministers divcuiced the vexing question of further aid to irrigation. A decision that much more advanced aid to irrigation projects would be given, this year than last, finally was arrived at. though the details of how this aid is to be advanced still remain be finally decided upon in CAUCUS. THREE PROPOSALS There were three general proposals discussed for irrignt'on aid- One was q proposal -for the government to guarantee without rtservation payment of interest on all irrigation bonds. Another was to guarantee the bonds themselves up to a certain of their par value, to 75 per cent. The third was complete and total guarantee of all the bonds. MUST APPLY TO ALL ALIKE About as many different opinions were on theie three points as there were cabinet at the meeting. One important point agreed upon was that whatever aid given to irrigation pro- jects shall be of a general applying to all, and no specific project would be singled out for attention. Cabinet ministers were all very reticent about giving out the de- tails of the discussions, chiefly because they fear that their findings may be subject to some alterations in the caucus gf the government .members.

C. R- Mitchell, provincial treasurer, de- livered Friday, the conclusion that little Is to be done for irrigation at this session, that is far from the truth, if previous utterances of the same minister are taken into consideration. Hon. Mr. Mitchell announced some time ago that -proeiram of the legis- lature was "the budget, then comes it .was clear from this state- ment that the provincial treas- urer did riot Intend to make any extended remarks about irrigation policy during his budget speech. And that was to be expected, for while, as treasurer, he >s keenly interested in what financial aid may he granted to irrigation dis- tricts and will have considerable to say 'in shaping tye final policy, Irrigation development does not come in his. department. Hen. A. J. McLean has charge of that im- portant issue, while Hen.'Duncan is also naturally closely interested.
