This applies especially IQ the fanners' legislation, and he thojieht this an encauraEing fact for the farmers o[ the province are responsible for a very large per- centage of the wealth produced an- nually within the province. The fann- ers are the mainstays of Alberts and he fras glad lo be able to class him- Eelt as among the farmer members of thP-Jegislaiure. Reviews Legislation. Mr. Leflinewell then reviewed veir briefly the various bills passed by the' Slfton government calculated to In- ED tte production ot the farmers and "aid Item in Ihe-lr work of devel- oping the province. All the way from Ihe Farniire' Elevator hill which had Ibe effect of preventing a mon- opoly ol elc-vator interests lo ihe Farm Loan Act and the Cow Dill of the the legislation was alto designed to make the lot of the fanner an easier one. Much ot tbe legislation placed on the books was suggeited by the fanners themselves through U, F. A.; showing that the sovtrnmenb ie ia close louch and with tbat will lend to build 01P the Bgr'culturaT JQterests of the provloce. As for public -works la the Warcer constituency he believ- ed.the who elected him irere well sotlEfied 'with, the 150 miles of continuous trunk roids which had been bnilt, with the telephone exten- sions, and with the bridges ivhTcfa had been provided. As for railways, some thought they had probably not receiv- ed (he consideration in the south they should bnt as compared with tbe north. Southern Alberta Is well Eiied for railways anii if the farmers keep on prodccios crupi as Ihp.y hare In the past few years, St will soon be impossible to keep the railways out. declared-Mr. Lefflngwell In closing, "Is only for those who ace willing to accept it. i am not one of those, and I beilere tbat with the support of the members of this con- vention I Vlll have the pleasure of for another four years cnder tbe premiership of Hon.
