N. W. M. Police came into Western Canada in '73 they did so by the way of Fort Beuion, Mont., and after trekking forty miles north of the international boundary stopped in a small plain on Battle Creek, on the south side of the Cy- press Hills, distant about forty miles from what is now Maple Creek, which lies to the north. The first post was named after their intrepid leader, Major Walsh, who fcared nothing. So remarkable was his courage that a noted Indian chief said: "No use try kill that Strategists, ama- teur and otherwise, have found fault with the location, owing to the defiles and coulees, more or less timbered, down which Indians might creep un- detected until close to the stockade. The red-coated policemen., however, refused to worry, and in spare hours raced horses on the old race track now only tenanted by the outlawed coyote, the burrowing gopher, or the sirloin-building steer, and during business hours dealt out justice with- out fear or favor. Peace did not always reign in the locality, for between .Crees and Black- feet existed a feud which had to be expunged by blood, and the cleansing process resulted in a fearful massacre when nearly all the combatants wt-re wiped out, a gruesome reminder in after years being the tufts of human hair to be found scattered about the locality. All distances were measured from the old fort, and we have" yet Ten- mile Post, a police detachment, Four and Six Mile Coulee. The country is very pretty on Battle Creek and It is well worth the effort of a forty mile drive over the cactus, alkali, dusty plain from Maple Creek and up the Cypress Hills, over trails which wind through thickets of wild gooseberries, currants and raspber-- that occasionally become very stony, owing to the silt-remov- ing springs, which bubble of their fulness over the travelled roasL Here and there the hillsides are dotted Let urn prove to you how much this range will aave you The home that owns a Gurney-Oxford Golden Nugget Range fuel food health time labor for this is the range that was built to save just these things.

Mr. IL L. Borden, leader of the Op- 4. Two sections bought by Winnipeg position, has secured the .services of, speculator, price paid, sworn several provincial premiers to assist him in his tour of the country. Among these distinguished gentlemen is Hon. Mr. Roblin, Premier of Mani- toba. Incidentally it has been stated, and not denied, that Hon. Mr. Rob- lin may be- invited to join Mr. Bor- den's cabinet as Minister of the In- terior, should that gentleman suc- ceed at the polls, and apply to the administration of the Dominion lands the same treatment which has, so it is alleged, proved so advantageous to the Province of Manitoba. Should Mr. Roblin become Minister of the Interior, it is quite reasonable to assume that he would duplicate the policy followed in Manitoba. What has that policy been? For eight years the Conservative Government have been in power in Manitoba, and during that period the policy has been "the land for the speculator." Let us examine the records and see the evidnce of this. In 1S99 the pro- acres of carefully selected, high-class He Advocated the Cause Of Railway Men E. H. Riley, M.P.P., of Gleichen, addressed the following letter to the Calgary Albertan: I notice that Consvrvativc speakers and workers are attempting on every possible occasion to give the impres- sion that the repeal of that section of {the, criminal code which the great army of railway men felt was unjust to them is due to the efforts of Mr.! McCarthy alone; I would like to point out that dur- jing the last session of the Alberta Le- jgislature, Mr. W. C. Simmons, the i member for LethUridge and the pres- i ent Liberal candidate for the Medi- cine Hat constituency, brought this j matter before the legislature in, a very forceful way. Mr. Simmons, who holds very strong and advanced views in regard to all matters affecting the and more especially railway em- ployees, presented his case in such aj convincing way that he carried every] member of the house with him. Mr. Simmons then presented the following motion (see journals of legislature, page "Moved by W. C- Simmons, Resolved, that a memorial be pre- sented to his Excellency the Governor ia Council, setting forth the desira- bility of certain amendments to the Railway Act of Canada, providing that before prosecutions are begun against trainmen or other employees of the railway companies for negli- gence causing accidents in the opera- tion of trains or otherwise, that pro- vision be made for a proper investi- gation before a competent commis- sion or other competent body, with a view of arriving at the cause of the accident before any such prosecutions are begun." As I have pointed out Mr. Simmons presented his case in such a manner that Tie had the pleasure of seeing his motion passed unanimously, and he has every right to claim that his ef- forts in this matter are alone .respon- sible for the repeal -of this unjust clause, and. I feel satisfied that the railway men of Medicine Hat will show their appreciation of Mr. Sim- mons' efforts. TRY WM.

The Conservative Government, im- mediately upon coming into office, re- versed the. Liberal policy, and sold the land in large blocks by auction at a low fixed price. The result was that large tracts fell into the hands of speculators, who held them at high prices, which the settler has been called upon to pay. Up to the end of March. 1905, no less than 723 acres out of acres of this high-class fanning had disposed of to speculators for the low .ivf-ragf of per acre. A return brought down in the Leg- islature shows that.in tho year 1903 alone over acres of land wero sold to 23 persons in blocks ranging from. acres to acres. Con- clusive testimony is furnished of the improvident character of these trans- actions by official transcripts from the Prince Albert Land Titles office. Purchasers of the Quill Lake land were obliged to register it in the Land Titles office in Prince Albert, making a declaration of the amount paid for tho land and n sworn estiinnte of its value.
