Mr, Skinner contemplates visiting liethbridge in the ctJuroe of his tour,; , and has- already : shown in the columns of the Canadian Gazette how keen.aud direct an interest his journal takes in .the future of our cityy and in .attractingthe: attention;! of :Britl8h inve&tors.toour qpportupitleBi In view of Mr. Skinhef's visit spec- - ial;:int�reat;;atta6heB to the vigjorous; . -way in' which ; the .Gahadlanv,Gazette has heeuiman,.'to recover'his body on Tuesday. =5^ if Tea Table Talks Most people do not driiik enough.'

Aiid the best in Tea is Refrq'3hing--su'sfcaimiigrecon,omlcaL ' ., Leader Michener's expose of the Ci:edit of the province, his pet hobby ill this campaign, is' given below. The figures are wierd and wonderful and must be followed closely to get th(ir' logic Mathematics must have been his strong point when -Mr,. Michener went through co(Iege. Reaid it carefully. � It is given in. his own words: "Our Credit" .''The province has borrowed $19,-400,000 on which we pay $1,370,000 Interest annually;. That is; we pay more than one -million dollars a year in interest. . ., . . '.'The total provincial revenue is -less than $2,000,000, which with the $1,400,000 - we Teoelve annually . from, the Dominion 'government, In lieu of o-.*r; natural resources, makes. $3,400,-000, _ . "Over 50 per., cent, of this goes in interest charges alone. "When the Sifton government came into pow'er^ the provincial debt was about $2,000,000. Now it Is $20,000,-000. If the SIfton, government is returned to power; and they contlnueto spend money as they have been do-;inB, that is $6,000,000 annually, - our debt in the next four years will he Increased by. $20,000,000 mere.; It will then. b-ei - $4O,0QO,000. Interest at the ;rate of .five per cent, on this is. $2,-000,000 annually^ the-total of our whole provincial revenue. , "Thlia would not he so serious if we had our natural Resources as In'iBrit-Is'h Columbia; where their lands^*an'd tlmiber and mines bring them millions of dollars everyyear. But It is a ser-liouB"condition of .affatra to . see' our revenue eaten up by Jntereet charges: ^"Then; too: the government is mak-^ ing no provision to .repay the principal,-* When asked what'he Intend^d^ to do about repayment, Premier Sif-ton stated that he did not intend to pay it back. You can imagine how that will hurt the credit of the province on the money markets of the world. There is only ono solution if this continues, and that ia direct taxation as you have it in the cities. Mr. SIfton quotes the debts of the cities of Calgary and Edmonton to justify his expendltuTes, but direct taxation applies 'theire and it 'vvlll have to come in the whole province. You know What that means. There is no part of the British Empire paymg as high a tax rate as Alberta-five and three-quarters per cent. Thei conflscatory legislation of the SIfton government has undermined; our credit. Integrity and honor, according, to J. Pierpont Morgan, is the ibasls of credit, and; the corrupt methods of tlie SIfton administration havfi damaged ours irreparably; in this respect. It is impairing the credit of every town and -city In the; province. We are told that the ��money market is tight in Ontario and; Manitoba, but it Is not so tight' as in Alberta. The direct tax is coming. "TbEire isonly one hope other than that. If the Conservatives are returned .we will-, gain control of our natural resources;.' We will get the revenue then to. pay hack what we owe:.: No mandate, has ever been sent to the Borden government to turn over the natural resources to the pro-vlncq,  We have 'been satisfied with :a mere pittanoei. ;; ;� ."But If. the Conservatives are placed -in'poweri; at this election we will unilertake- to arrive at a satisfactory arrangement with the Borden government and save the country."-^Oppor sltlon Leader Michener, at; the Majestic Wednesday night.
