The criticism has sometimes been made in Canada that the federal gov- ernment has spent and is spending a very large sum of money in surveys for the development of irrigation in Alberta, and Saskatchewan, without receiving, any return for the money so expended. It has even been said that such expenditures are on a far larger scale than in any other known conntry, including the United States. Thoie -who make suck statements, overlook the basic fact that while the U.S. government makes no direct appropriation, for such surveys and construction other than the also loaned, all the funds lU'i1. .H the will bo greatly U t'u" ajv.'.utase ot .pr.iirii: ai.rirliltliro.
