THE CERTAINTY OF IRRIGATION Tho governmental irrigulion policy announced by Premier Stewart, in all vhat it portends in relation to the particular future Welfare ot this part oC tho Province and of the Province generally, will in the years to come, as posterity will regard it, malte the name of the Premicrand the Alberta Government of 1921 bo associated with the beginning of a new era in the progress afad proBperity of Southern Alberta and Alberta as ft whole. U will be a year to he remembered as historic in prbvincial Watorr- In the enunciation of its policy in respect to Irrigation, the Govcrnraent has sot only risen to tlio occasion but has tensed its rcspouaibility and obligation to rWove the drawbacks to agricul-tare, in the importance it"^old8 as a bstsic industry In this part ot the Pro-Tince. At a time when confidence is most needed, when it becomes a paramount function ot public authorities to instil this confidence, the Government of Alberta has wisely seen fit to come forward with a policy, the magnitude of which can be only fully realized in the process of years. Independently ot the ntmost satisfaction that the irrigation policy of the Government gives, there Is the added satisfaction that through its Premier it has implemented the promise made that, should the provisions then' made for carrying out the policy of irrigation be found to bo inadequate for practical purposes, recourse could then bo again made to the Govtrnmeut for greater assist aucc. This has happened, and today, in the iKiliey announced, we have the inspiring example ot a Premier that has been tnie to his word and a Government that has stood by the pledges made by its spokesman. With the sure and certain promise ot what irrigation means, tho Stewart Government will be in a position to justly claim the credit that under its auspices was evolved an agricultural policy which made for stability, for the increase ot the wealth ot the Province, for the encouragement of immigration to this part of the Province, and for the prosperity and growth of the cities, towns and villages in its midst. Above all there will be the supremo satisfaction ot malcing for contentment, in the creating of homes on the farm, with all those home surroundings which irrigation will bring. The Stewart Government, in the irrigation policy it has undertaken, will have rightfully earned the apprecia lion ot the people of this part of the Province, in the feeling sensed that Southern Alberta has received a fair deal at the hands ot the Government. It will help to remove anything of the sentiment, where it has arisen, that the policies' of the Government are sectional policies, and that one part of the I'rovince has been neglected �l the oxpensf- nl' the other. li\g their unnniuilty to make the policy materialize. Nor should wc forget at this tiulo men like Mr. Mnrnorh who. wit^i the co-operation and support of others, have at length brought irrigation to tlu- point when it has be-oomfi iin actual poiiry. To him and to ot!\cr. 6. The Antilles. � OTTAWA, Mar. K.--Agriculture estimates were again under Uro In tho house today, lion. Dr. To'inle. minister of agriculture, in outliuliig the work of his department, spoke ot what had been done in the campaign against both animal mid vegetable parasites. I.*st yoar f 17.000,000 was saved to the farmers of Manitoba. Wheat acreages In Sas^ntchewan and Alberta had been protected. Col. \. .T. Currle, North Rimcoe, had a word on the farms of Ontario and l^iiebec. Thefa farms, so be declared to tho house, -would be worth 100 per cant, more it it were not for the weeping �ylUow who went around knocking them. He was critical, too, ot farmers who devoted more time' to politics than faming. Wm. Dutf. Lunenburg, N. S.. thought that fruit inspector appointments, instead of being made by the civil service commission, shouhl lio made by the minister or his deputy. Ip regard to Nova Scotia inspectors, there was something strange. Mr. DufE complained, In that thoy should bo chosen only from men residing in .\nnapoli8 and Kings counties. J. .V. Maharg, Maple Creek, also urged the necessity of better fniit inspection on the prairies. The Inspectors. Mr. Duff argued should bo bettar distributed throughout the province and thus travelling expenses saved. Donald Sutherland. South Oxford al so doubted if some of the department hog inspectors were particularly qualified. OTTAWA, Mar. IT.-(C�n Press) - Dr. Rotd, minister ^of railways, iu the house of commons this afternoon, made his annual statement on tho government lines.

"When I made my annual statement of the operation, ot these roads a year ago," Dr. Reid continued, "I believed from discussions I had with Uie management, 1 would he abl� to advise the house this year the deficit ot 1919 had |)een reduced in 1920. Instead ot a peduction I must inform the house th^t the loss In operation alone for the year ending December 31, 1920, is much larger, and is as follows; Canadian Northern, $10,258,679.80!

IS.-The last week has been cold and stormy, the thermometer going 23 degrees below last Saturday night, but the wind has grad ually shifted around until now it has nioderated and we arc in hopes spring weather will soon come with plenty of moisture. The farmers are getting anxious to begin spring work as it is getting near the time for them to go on the farms. They seem to be very optimls-tii; and think they will not need the services of Mr. Hatfield this year. We hope they will not he disappointed in the weather conditions. Stirling is quite up to date as to home plays as they have put on two this winter and are preparing the third. The first one, "Hotany Bay," the second, "Safety First." Those who took part in these plays did very well considering it the first anpearanca of some of the performers. Tliny intend to take the one "Safety First" to Raymond next Saturday night, and we hope they will have a successful trip. The .Mutual are preparing a pl.iy.

"To this amount must bo added the interest on bonds, etc., or What are called fixed charges and which have been paid or assumed by the government, and are ns follows; Canadian Northern, $24,155,988.48; Grand Trunk Pacific, $9,332,776.23. "Making the total deficit for operation and fixed charges, $70,331734.88. "And this does not take into consideration any interest or fixed charges on Transcontinental or Inter-Colonial railways. "A Canadian National income credit, which will he shown In the statement of 'detail, reduces this sum to $69,593,441.00 which is lost on operation and fixed charges for J1920, as against $48,000,000 In 1919. "The management explain this increased loss ot twenty millions chiefly by increased expenditures in payroll and fuel." Afterpeon Session OTTAWA. Mar. 17.-(Can. Press)--At the opening of the house this afternoon, Spealcer Rhodes announced that he had received the resignation of Sir Herbert Ames as member for St. Antolue, Montreal. Sir Herbert was chosen some time ago for tho position of financial adviser to tho League of Nations. Hon. Arthur Meighen moved for the Easter adjournment from Wednesday, March 23 to 29. The motion carried. On the suggestion ot tho leader of the opposition, the. motion for Wednesday evening sitting was allowed to stand for the present. his irrigation policy. Everyone was ready to vote tor Stewart, because ho had saved the country, and he had made their homes worth' keeping. It will make-this country what it was years ago, a land that produces quantity and quality of grain that is not excelled ii^ any part ot the world. Irrigation bonds guaranteed by the Alberta government will find a ready sale In all the stock markets of the world. Many who now have large tracts of land will be able to divide up, and in, this way make the Mac-leod district one of the best populated portions of the province. Homes that aj-o now. miles apart will be only half a mile. More schools and churches will bo built and a larger population will be found that will produce a larger . amount of grain, stock and, farm products than anywhere else, and the government will thus have many more from whom they may look for assistance in time of an election. Macleod is in the centre of the irrigation land. North and west we have the Lethbridge and Macleod Northern covering a large area of land. We have south to Standoff, and east to the junction of the Old Man and Belly rivers, the Macleod South Irrigation project with its 130,000 acres. Between the Waterton and Kootenay is the United Irrigation system. This is all ready for work and the money is ready to build it with as soon as the government has this legislation completed.
