Duncan Marshall An- novmfts in Splendid Budget Speech That Plan Adopted AGRICULTURAL NEEDS, MARKETS AND EDUCATION (Special to the Herald) KI1MOXTON. March two Brest things which face the agricul- tural industry of this province today j are firstly, agricultural education, t mean by that the education ot the children and farmers themselves; and markets." In these words Hon. Duncan Mar- j Khali, minister of agriculture, summed j up the policy and aim of depart- ment in the course of a splendid two-1 hour address on the budget delivered in the houso on Friday evening. The i minister was the only speaker of the j evening. Tho debate was adjourned F. W. Lundy, opposition, Stoney Plain. Mr. Marshall spoke ot the two great necessities of education and markets j eariy in his speech and returned to it I with great emphasis in his concluding remarks. It it the duty of the govern- j ment, he said, to do everything they can to forward these projects. The matter of markets would not come with theorizing, but they hiul to be right out after. Praises Tolmie In this connection he .spoke with warm words of praise of Tolmie, Dominion minister of agriculture, and the co-operation which he was always willing to show to the provincial de- pariments. Tae minister, in his usual j er.erpetie manner, tackled the' subjects of weeds, which had been mentioned j during the afternoon debate by Mrs. iVIcKinney, (Independent) Claresholm.

The plan it designed to alhiplify, hasten and reduce in coit development outlined in the already extenilve reclamation project! In Southern Alberta. It la a big that Mr. Sundal I: putting up to the moving tpirlU In the various irrigation districts. Time Is needed to let the full mpert of it sink in because it ic a brand new thing and broad In its But it looks mighty good to the men Mr. Sundal has inter- viewed. Here is the proposal in a nutshell: As a foundation and basis for the various irrigation extensions In the territory south and east of Lettibrldgt the old A. R. and I. system must be purchased outriaht from the C. P. R. This system, already perfectly orgarlzed and functioning, must be the artery for the water distribution. This centralized organ- ization must undertake the supplying of each of the small projects. It would be maintained by an equitable assessment of all projects embodied In It. In a word, It is get-together scheme for the speeding up on sound, business lines the irrigation extension progwm in the south country. ENGINEER JS KILLED! PICTOU, N. S., Mar.
