On. tte .other hand the Con party during the time it was itt power, left this country at the niercj' of one railroad corporation the C. P. R. It gave that road, a complete and monopoly in this country. Today Couser- >ative party has no inore active or loyal friend than the C.PJK. It has always been and likely always will be, the backer of the Conservative party. Its solicitors and directors are closely identified with the direc- tion of the affairs tive party. growing at War Wr, Milk Hiver, Taber, Graaty and north of this city. U ers rushed in auu took up the land owned by Prior to 1896, it would have been considered lolly on part of a loan to even take up a botuestcad at any of. the mentioned and to have paid or an. acre for land, would have probably in the estimation even of Mr. ilagrath, qualified a man for on insane asylum. Taber began as a mining town, wise men appreciating the growth of the country, but little imagining that the immediate dis- trict would ever be covered with pro- ductive farms and- happy people, invested in coal lands and developed the mines. In time the Mormon peo- ple, who have ever been pioneers in agricultural development, took up homesteads at this point.

E. line, where twelve years ago three passen- ger trains a not the C. Pja., but today two trains each way daily can hardly accommodate the traffic. The country is as thickly populated as some of the oldest- sec- tions of Ontario. What has the Liberal government had to do with this growth? We do not claim that it is wholly respon- sible but we 'do maintain that its trict and will come in as soon as the main are completed, probably before But the government has not nagUciei the -south, as instance the eoaatme- tion of the Crow's Nest Road, which put on a main liae of road and started us on the up grade. 3Lr. Xagrath, while arguing lor com petition, did not announce any rail- way policy. Be did not what he was prepared to do for country, if he were elected. Neither the Conservative "IcssJvT icy..v The-attitude of the Conserva- tive party on this question wholly destructive and not eonctructive. Ei- ectors must remember that the eral policy is and has bees, railroad1 development and competition. They must also not forget that the Con- servative party is a C JP.R. party, party standing for monopoly. Many of its. leaders are prominent in the C.P.R. and it is say that if the Conservatives-come to power, the C.P.R. would have sufficient influence Lo keep out competitive roads. The; C. P..
