C.N.K. but the plan they advocated was selfish; they aimed to get anoth- er railroad into Calgaiy, tvst of x the province be "blowed." The only policy the Alberta can pursue is to encouriyi milr- ad de- velopment through the fj.iirc pi'O- Tince. Open up the codnVry. give aH the outlying districts railroad con- nection and provide '-for Calgary, but f-ir c''.-ry important distributing point in Alberta. The Alberta government must take up this matter without delay. Thece are three plans open to it, first, go- vernment construction and operation of railroads, (2) government guaran- tee of bonds, with control of freight und psLsscnger rates, (3) direct gov- ernment guarantee. Government ownership is preferable but it is questionable if the province would be warranted, at the present stage ib its history of assuming such a responsibility. To us it seems that the second proposition would be the safest and best. Guarantee the bonds of the railroad that will undertake the opening of new lines, throughout the province, provided that road wil afford competition, and in return for this assistance on the part of thp province, the freight and passonge rates to be under the control of th provinco.
