Wright The Jeweler The Largest Diamond Stock In Southern Alberta f Mr. Magrath got a great' ovation particularly suffered. The railways ._ .-_..... j should be built to the districts where ___- are raising the wheat that must j be shipped and the speaker charac- terized it as a crime to leave dis- tricts-such as the country north of the 'city without railway facilities if railways could be built at all. The Real Issue The real issue of ths campaign in the speaker's opinion is the control of the natural resources ot the two prairie provinces. Comparing Alber- ta with Ontario and Quebec in the matter of from minerals, Sir. Magrath declared that Alberta never would receive from the federal Gov- ernment a sum equal to the se in minerals than Pennsylvania. Al berta was shown to have a grsate area of timber than any other pro vince except British Columbia. From the discussion in the of Commons on the question of th extension of the boundaries of th provinces hi showed, the difference "between the policies of Borden an Laurier with regard to the contro of the lands, minerals and timber. The speaker alleged that Mr. Oli ver was unfair in his statements in defence, of the timber limit deals aac claimed that it had not bee'h possibl for the critics to secure an investiga tion into the alleged tion. Unfair Law The pre-emption law for which Mr Oliver was getting so much credi for was characterized as being unfai to the old settler who having per formed his homestead duties and b ing surrounded by settlers ha to secure a pxirchased homestead an do his pioneering over again. In closing Mr. Magrath made a appeal to his supporters to go t work energetically and vigorously but with faith and good humor, and know what is going to happen but I am not going to say what it is.
