Are the electors going (o elect men who aie ready to league themselves with any puny for power? The Michener Policy The leader of the opposition, when Ht North Lotlibrldgc. said Dint this is a atrlcily agricultural pro- vince, nnd legislation sho.uld he prim- arily in this direction. Was this a jwl- Icy? "l think, wo have another iiidiiK- ti'y right In the heart Of Lethbridge, which development. 1 wontlei1 if Mr. Michwner ever heard of tho caul mines of Southern Alberta? 1 agree in agricultural development, hut I al- think (hat coal-mining has some claim for attention." A False Statement 'One of the speakers opposing me accused me of-saying tbat-1 agreed to the cash payment in lien of the con- trol of our natural resources. 1 never if ..Mr. Allchener's.agricultural colle were to; be anything like what; the> siy about Mr. Borden's promise giving- the resources of tire provlnc) over toah.e provincial governments lie wouldn't build it If he though (hat any aony of Liberals were going to attend.' But I do not think tint what they, say about Mr. Uordon ant the natural of the province is sincere, nor do I think that Mr Michener is sincere'in his criticism of the affairs of the department of agri culture. Hii Agricultural Policy "In regard to the matter of an agri- cultural colteg'j for the province, we ijelieve that we have evolved out of he experience of the older states anil provinces of Xonh America, a P far iitperior to tbe old agricultural col- lege. The college has been proven io have serious faults, in that it does not get close enough to thfc people Who are of scientific training u agriculture. Wbai we are striving or do In this department is not to so. I novier declared myself be- tore the present campaign. Natural Resources I am in sympathy with the govern- ment, and one of my first acts would he to vote in bringing the matter tu he notice of government nt Ot- tawa. The policy is one of both part- Mr. Burden has declared time nid again, in season and out of sen- son, that the province should have con rol of its resources. Now Mr. .Mich- infer says wo will not get this unless l t Conservative party is in power. "Arc we (Q weapon held over o.ur heads to say which way we shall oto? l do not think the electors will stand for this." Mr. Uorden's mind. However, is bui'lt on a larger mould ban Mr. Micheiiers, and he will car- out his lire-election promises. Local When our agricultural society was ihort of finances, we were put, by a :rant from the government, on the ame basis as Edmonton and Calgary. have buildings hi the shape of our o.urihouse and our jail, which we are roud of. Wa have had a, grant of as a guarantee for bringing he Dry Farming Congress here. In ddition, Imve had the personal in- urn out professors of agriculture for agricultural colleges, but. to help the n-siv settler to make a better living off his farm. To do this we have bought seven demonstration farms in various pans of the province, where scienti- fic fanning will be carried on under competent instructors, and where practical farmer nmy for hints when needed. These farms must not only pay their they must, tie- ciare --a 'to show that scien- uencc of obtaining it of a member f tho government, tne lion. Duncun larshaU, who went to Colorado lirinyy at a time when he.couki he j fa rilling can made "i.o pay, Then in connection we will establish winter schools, and in a few "years there may be snrh a demand for an college as to warrant building one, but until jhw other work is done, the province would not be right iii establishing an agricultural collage of any kind. The government Alberta is also supporting agricultural societies in the strongly, giving more grants in proportion than any other states or province in North Anverica. good resnUs of (his policy are al- ready apparent, and in the years to i come will be even more so, as it will tend to develop thy.
