BONDS AND MORTGAGEES To the orditiiiry layuiuu the con- troversy that has been waging over (he qupjliou of prlo-lty of mortgage iiEns on the bonds of Irrigation iliE- tricts is somewhat parpleslng.

It may be a popular iiiea, but It does scant Jus- llce lo tho sturdy Individuals of ibos? rough and tumble days who gave posterity what it enjoys today.

V [Ihcoldlimera thought. He niul she have We make no pretence of being inti- intfte with the intricacies and subtle- ..ties ot the law, but In the circuroslan- CC3 we cannot help bringing what ap- pears to us to be a common sense view to bear on the controversy. We hold, and we believe properly hold, that an irrigatjon district, lite, a municipality, is a taiing body which has to meet its obligations in the matter of bonds and debentures by the rates It is ac- customed to levy 'every year. The city, for Instance, may see lit lo raise mill rate which becomes accord- ingly an aitdert charge on .properly in Die city. The tax, as we see it, In no -way affects the security pf the mortgagee on properly which may to be mortgaged. Nor hare heard any Instance of a mortgage.? ;objectbis to the higher toi rate. The las has a prior claim on the property, .and the property, so far as the city its concerned. Is only liable for that of the levy on which it Is Yated. The property in question is not that of the city any more than the is the property of the Irri- ialJon'dlslrid. t' The Irrigation district does not own .the lici, Jt merely owns the righl of taxing it. In this reapect, we take it differs from a company which ;holdB. property as owner thereof. A .cooipany for borrowing purposes may issue bonds. The security for these honflg is a morlgage on tbe properly it bolds. If It defaults tr. tho payment of the bonds, the bondholders have access to the mortgaged- property. The- Irrigation district owns no prop- erty; Its bonds are promises to pay- out ot annual levies.

H Irrigation a sound Investment for fluauclally hard-pressed Britain. Is It not a sound Investment for Alberta, relieved ot its guarantees and with the Federal Government unquestionably agreeable to co-operate? It Will Pay The Lethbrldge Northern project covers 100.000 acres of land that a notable authority declares are well adapted for successful cultlvaliou ier irrigation. It is estimated the system would- cost five million dol- lars. Put all this area under alfalfa an example, with Sit tons to Uie acre yield, and an average price of J12 a ton, or an acre, this 100.000 acres would produce four million dol- lars In one sasaon. Tho }12 price is a low estimate, for 'today alfalfa is bringing ?10 a Add the Macleod, Barons areas to the district, another W.OOO acres, and the returns in.one year from alfalfa would be In excess of the estimated capital cost of the project. Alfalfa would be fed and the stock would undoubt- edly yield even better return on the per aero basis. Tho Lcthbrldge Northern project has the laid and the people on the land, it has the water running to waste. Link up the water and tha land and we will hive crops, not one year but always. Naturally those, ac- quainted with tho situation argue ir- rigation development Is not only a necessity, but a prime factor in the development of our natural resources. Today Canada has huge financial ob- ligalions, will help to. these obligations most? The develop- ment of these resources assuredly. In flio past Canada has had to finance sections of Western Canada because of crop failures. The land was produc- tive but moisture. When moisture failed lo come we had crop failures and then distress. The water la available for Irrigation. Irrigation assures crapsi IVhetiter there Is nat- ural rainfall or not an assurance ot crops relieves Canada ot the occas- ional contributions .of r.ellef to dried out farmers. The Federal govern- ment has spent over a million dollars in surveys ascertaining (he land that can be irrigated and the water that Is available for irrigation. Is this money fo be wasted? Or Is Canada to develop these since It has learned that they can be enriched by turning upon them the waters out of (he Western rivers. Fanners, commercial and agricul- tural organizations, members of Par- llanient for the districts concerned at Edmonton and Ottawa, the Leth- I bridge Northern Trustees and the Ir- riiraliou Development Association are, doing' their utmost to have irrigation a reality In the districts that clamor lor. it.
