As ho saw it, this was an untenable position. If the companies given certain rights now, it would bo very hard to take those righls away by a general oct eigihf. months from now. The particular bill in point, asko.l thret? years in which to commence building, and he did not see that any groat hai�lship would te incurred 'by holding the 'bill over for a Xcw month!!. Ho had not previously paitl much attention to the railway bills and the Vermilion and Cold Lake Railway bill had slipped along without his having .noticotl what effect it might have on tlio f^:neral legislation. Since then, however, he had ticen looking into tlie matter, and he had had the Beputy Minister of Public Wurks prepare him a report of nil tile biJis which ho had read to the House. The report intimated that tlie bills wore, in most cases, asking for more e.Kpensive, powers than it w.dmonton, April 25.-Owing to the W^alker banquet at �hc Fort last night, yesterday's session of the legislature was short, and there was no night scs.9ion at all, conscqucmt-ly not a great deal of 'business Was done. The principal features on the k^islative programme were the bill to tirait the right to dispose of land, and a group ot railway bills. At tl�e r.vilway comn>ittee in the 'Oftornoon, previous to the sitting of the House, a resolution was adopted advising, or reconunotxling, to the House that certain rules lie followed in the giving ot railway charters, up tmtil such time as the Qovernment brings in a general railway act,, which will prol-.ably l;o at the next session of the legislature. T*!^ recnmmendaticns iivdicate more clearly than anything that has heretofore come before the Hiouso that there is to lie no monopoly in Alberta, and t'liey I the HouH.', ulmoitl wilhotit delm'te, ' rcn>.is its follows: ! TTo Tho llailwny Connnilftie- | , Oeiitlcmon,-Your sul>comtiiiltoc; appowit.etl to considrt that 1 liey 'have giivon the i matters referrwl to them some care, and woul"! re-spectfully make the fol-1 lowing recommendations: ! 1. The plncc from which and the place to which the main line of tl^o pro|Hisod rai'lw^a,v is to Ikj built Khoitld lie specified in tihe act of oor[K>mtion. 2. Tho power to build branch linos sh�)uld bo limited to lines of-a eor-taih length which \mo leave to the commit tod of proposed branches subject to the i'i'ght of variation there-'hom at the discrct'ion of the Lieii-tennnt-Govornor, and 'that the right to build l>o liini'twl to the linos shown on each map. 4. The charter granleil should lapse at 'the end of two years ui>less l."> per vont. of the capital ."^tockof the company shall have been exjiondefl in actual conS'truet ion by tho end of j that iKjr'iod. 5. With respect to the q^ieslioii of a tkjposit. your committee would point out that if the rules of the Territorial Assembly hns lor their own use only. 7. Your committee would also suggest for your consideration, that the location of town sites should be subject to tho \ ocation ot Lieutenant-Governor-in-Council, ond that when vhose town sites are oxprcsiriatod. one-third of the land therein should pass to the province, to be held in trust tor the municijiairty. 8. Your couimittee furMier recommend that all comi)anie8 incorporat-o'd al this session should be made subject to the railway act which may thereafter be passed. 0. Your conunittee also recommend that in all tho acts of incorporation lausa should bo inserttti giving the province the right at any time lo expropriate the property of the company at valuation. All of which is respectfully subtuR-totl. In considering tiic tha4> aiwl the All>erta | Oil, Coal and Wheat Railway Company, with, a few minor exceptions, , t'hoso bills were in conformity with the rccomnr�ondations and will probably go through as soon as the capital question has Ijeen cleaivxl oflf the slate and the llotisc gets down to the regular business again. C. A. Stuart, in moving the .second reading dk Bill No. .57, a bill to limit the righ^t of disposing of property, called the attention of tho Hou.'se to the fact that as tho law now stooil it wos'possible for a man to will away all his proirerty and leave his tvife penniless. Ho said he had noted several cases in the ri.'".'"nt VHist where women had been loft i cn-niless by tho will of the deceased husband. The law, he ih i'lght, should be .such ns to make it :.:ir> sible for a man to ideprive hi.'i wife of all right in the property. The bill, of course, .vo.iid i _ ; \>-ply to coses where a husba iJ l..s intestate. In that all v.* ,' goes to the wife, as the Doui" ;.i i act provides that landed pro -..'�v i o considorod as i^rsonal property. The limit placed was 912,000. Mr, RosenrolI endorsed the bill, on consideration that an amendment be added to tha effect that a wife who hati ceased to live with her husband shoultl have no rights. Mr. To Word cndorsod the bill. Mr. Robertson endorsed tho bill, with the addition sugffe.^ted by Mr: Rosonroll, but believed that tho limit of 912,000 was altogether too low.
