The'papers relating to. the m en t loans to the Canadian Northern Railway and Grand Trunk Pacific were tabled when the house met, by Sir Thomas White, and ordered to He printed. When that IB done an'd the contents have been digested by the members of the house, the debate will take place. The resolutions providing a subsidy for the. St. John Valley railway was debated and adopted, a couple of mi- nor billa -were advanced a stage and the house went Into committee ot sup- ply on railway estimates. The vote for the Hudson Bay rail- way provofted the most discussion. There was .some criticism of the choice of the project as a whole. It was championed, however, by both Hon. J. D.

The minister stated that up to the end of February over fifteen millions had been spent on tho project, including jnearly five millions for terminals.

Eighty per cent of spring wheat seeding" in Southern Alberta IB com- pleted according to the best infor- mation the Herald has been able to gather. By Saturday night the wheat crop for itilti will he in the ground with tho exception of a fesv isolated farms where the work has been held up for various reasons. The spring wheat acreage this year will be about 70 per cent of that of 1915. The acreage in oats, barley and flax will be higher. Flax particular- ly will be favored by many farmers who have been unable to" get their ground prepared in time for wheat seeding. A great deal of land has been seed- ed to wheat on stubble this spring. Many fanners have burnt off the stubble from land that was cropped on Eummerfallow last year and are s.tuhbling in the. grain. It is to be noted, howaver. that a great deal of 'work is being put on-'this land, working up a goodxsurface sllth so that good results may be expected under ordinary weather conditions. J. T. Tasker of Barons was In the city this morning and told the Herald that he had seeded 320 acres in thisfc manner and that the grain ready showing above ground. As for the acreage (his year it is hard to tell yet what will be the final outcome. The smaller farmers will be able to seed almost as much as last year, though .many of them are learning from experience that it !e better to do some summerfallowing each year to he better prepared for tho next year's crop. But the farm- ers who farm big acreages are cutting down to some extent. H. E. Meibach will have about half the acreage on his Monarch farm. J. T. Tasker will have the same acreage as last year, 1200 acres on his Barons farm. The Noble farm will have closs to 4500 acres or about the same acreage as last year. The Miami Farm at New Dayton will have about half the acre- age of last year. Geo.. O. Kerr east of the city will have 1000 a-cres as against 2000 last year. N.
