This was suggested by the provincial agri-cnltdre board yesterday. (Special to the HeraUU Ktlmonton. Jlar. 22,-Premier Slew-art, replying to tho delegation of farmers from the Coutls -country urging construction of the Alberta Hudson's Bay Railway, said very bluntly that the governmQnt .would not giiarantee the railroad at any time unless the pronvoters had yory tangible assets that'would protect the people who were buying the stock and-also the government tha'tiwRs guamntccing the road. For. this session ho had told the i legislature thore would be no guar-j tmtees asked, for railways. Later If I the company coitld show tangible ovi-i donee ot its iissets they would be glad ito show them the'same cona|devatlon that they v,-ould every other part of the province. Mr. Stewart said lie I:ue\v perfpctl.v the necessity ot having transportation for the farming districts and none kneiw better than he the difficulty ot farming without easy access to a market.

Premier'Stewalrt said he would not guarantee a. railroad for their convenience unless .the. promoters had such tangible asseta, as to secure both the people .'who'i^eiie buying the stock and the.government which wag putting up tKe guarantee. He assuted them that It'^irciuld take some $20,000 a mile at the present condition ot ^things to put fl road into condition th'at It -would, bring any return. The premier questioned Mr. Crandell a^ to the truth ot the reports that ha^come to him,, that the agents ot the^ompany had gone through the south country and sold the stock, telling the farmers that the government had guaranteed the road. Mr. Crandell said this waa not so, so tar as he knew. He had only sald^ thaf if enough ot the farmers became stockholders that they would be very likely to interest the government in the proposition. As to the assets of the company, Mr. Crandell told some of tholr buy-Ings'lii timber lands and coal rights but a'aif that just at present in many things they could not show their hand.
