The Saskatche- wan Legislature opened here to-day. The speech from the throne was as follows t Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Legislative Assembly. It is my privi 1-ege and pleasure to welcome you to the second session of the second leg- islature of the province. The encouraging prospects of Sas- katchewan :to which I was able to re- fer at the time of your last session have been realized during the inter- vening period to a degree exceeding the most sanguine expectations. The industry of our people in the season now ending has been very abundantly blessed. The estimated, aggregate yield of grains shows an increase over former years so remarkable as to at- tract in a notable manner the atten- tion of the people of other provinces and countries and places Saskatche- wan in. an unrivalled and unchalleng- ed position as the foremost grain producing province in Canada. An in- crease from bushels and bushels ten years ago and five years ago respectively to no less than bushels in the present! year may be truly -described as a re- mates for. 1910-11, tabled by Mr-Field- markablee record.

Alex. Cameron, chairman of the vil- lage council, had called the meeting at the request of the petitioners. Mr. Hill moved and A. seconded the following resolution: "That the. ratepayers of here assembled, do hereby authorize and request the Council of the Vil- lage of Coleman, to take the neccs- sarv steps to have the said village of Coleman erected into a town." Mr. Hill spoke in favor of the mo- tion, briefly as follows: "Coleman is a large and growing community which must prepare for the growing interests of tomorrow." The Crow's Nest Valley has a bright future. A water supply is one important need. To get the nec- essary power to install a water sup- ply we need to incorporate.
