From Ft. Churchill to Liverpool is placed at miles, making a total of about miles. It wilT be noticed'that the Hudson's Bay route reduces'the rail haul just a trifle over a quarter of the entire distance and means a total saving of nearly One thousand miles of Tail liaal.. is saved by shipping from Ft."

Alberta -will be at the seaboard with the_ same rail haul as nbw takes it to Fort William: There is practically no difference in the distances from Churchill and Montreal to Liverpool. Then it will be seen, the Hudson's Bay line cuts out entirely the distance between Fort William and Montreal. That thous- and miles whether by rail route means a very considerable sav- ing to every producer and consumer Ma It was the Ma- candidate. does the city pay} that gentleman There is another report that farm- ers in the Eagle Butte district, south of Medicine Hat, in an effort io strengthen-iheir support of the Con- servative "candidate, have been pro- mised work for themselves and their teams on the city grading contract, for This looks take into their, own homes. The paper referred to was com- mended for -its course by Mr. grath's leading supporter. trculated by -members of C jssj-i r Mr. Simmons were inspired from this city by supporters of Mr. Magrath; the rather suspicious. -in fact, it is pretty yearly certain that the scurrilous stuff was written the in Eastern Canada. Not only will the cost of transpor- tation be reduced because of the short- er distance but also because the ele- ment of competition will enter. The C. P. R. and other lines running to Atlantic ports will reduce their rates so as to compete with the shorter Hudson's Bay line. This means that the Hudson's Bay railway because of its advantage of position will be in a position to dictate freight rates and bring under strict Government contro those rates will be regulated in the interests of tho people. It may be urged in opposition that Hudson's Bay being closed for so large a portion of the year the com- petition will not be effective. Hud- son's Bay is open practically as early and as late as Lake Superior. The Government has promised to build and operate Hudson's! Bay tliat will serve the same purpose' as the elevators at Ft. that is, to store the grain until the boats can take it. The Hudson's Bay route will compete in elevators as well as in hauling. It is hard to estimate in dollars and cents what the road means to the shipper ot grain, stock and dairy produce. It is safe to assume, how-j ever, that on wheat the saving will "I be from six to ten ccnU a bushel, and! on other produce in proportion. This -saving will be effected not only on the produce shipped over the Hud- son's Bay route but over other lines j as well which will have to m.H-t its prices to get business. The point for the electors to bear in mind particularly during the next few days is that this railway depends upon the success of the Laurier Gov- ernment in this ek-ction. While the Conservatives of Alberta and Sas- katchewan say thfiy have always fa- vored its construction, they have ad- vocated that the prairie provinces build it and bear the total expense. The Conservative leaders of British Columbia have termed the scheme a "cock and bull while the; Manitoba Conservatives say that they are opposed to the road and brand j it as a failure if attempted. In East- ern Canada, the Conservative party it opposed to the Government taking up the scheme aa it means opposition lo their bosom friend dictator, city. _" _ Anyway, the attack was of meanest and basest character, and had not the slightest foundation.'Mr. MagratK knows that, and yet that gentleman, be" high- minded and anxious for a respect- able campaign, has never repudiated the stamp of approval which, was given the Eye-Opener by his cam- manager, or apologiied for the bringing into the contituency of hun- dreds of copies of tha issue with the 'oul attack upon Mr. Simmons. -If the present campaign is not up to the standard Mr. Magrath profess- es an admiration for, the blame is upon himself and his supporters. showing a sudden eagerness to ge "more teams. far'as we know they intimated to the teamsters of this city that-they ed more mefi."

With their co-operation, declared Mr. Gait, the" efforts of the company towards developing Southern Alberta were proving successful. To listen to Mr. Magrath throughout this campaign one would imagine the en- tire development of the south, coun- try was due to the A.-R. and I. Co., but Mr. Gait says not. He gives the Government a lot of the credit.
