THE WEEKLY HERALD Published crery Wednesday In fclrht dfrnorc summary or news of '410 week, local and district 1 !a i-mnnttui in He montha In advcuce AN ACT WHICH NEEDS REVISING II ETHBRIDGE apparently is In need of a coroner. Thnl fact was clearly emphasized in connection with the accident at the Chinook mine. It is too much to expect that bodies can be .held for forty hours awaiting the arrival of an outside man. If tile weather had been hot it would have been almost an impos- sibility. The lav does not permit of bodies being removed until the coroner's Jury gets busy and there should be better provision j than there is for such officials. The trouble is ilint the fees al- lowed coroners are not such as to attract men to act as there is frequently considerable loss of time. It is hardly fair to ask men [o drop business for a day, and sometimes two days and draw a beggarly fee as a reward. The government is not in the position of enjoying the power to compel men to act as coroner and there is need of going into the Act as it at present exists and see if it would not be possible to make it a position worth while for a good man. The posilion calls for intelligence-and the government would not be justified jn appointing a mail who was not qualified to properly dis- charge the duties of so responsible a position. _In view of that responsibility'the Provincial'Government should make an efi'or! to place the coroners in a position that good men would be in- duced So act. To quote Ontario fees does not meet the case in the West. The conditions in Ontario arid in Alberta are not analogous. liwvc bi'i'ii wanu'd al'lor slight int'rnvliun ol' city byln-.vs iusU-ud of being brought hd'uiv :i jndgo. Htiv tlu> sensible procedure has been adopted of giving them advice, and using 'u friendly inlhu'iUT to start tlu-m on a new path. Having n-ferri-d lo these cases the report shows that there has not been relatively a great increase in (he number of delin- quents, the total for 1912 being 38-1, as against (ill! for the two I previous years. With regard lo dependent children there is, however, a large proportionate incrensR. The outline- of HIP work done for the amelioration of the child condition as it exists in many parts of Alberta is extremely praiseworthy. In addition to the admirable scheme of t'hild- reu's Shelters, further means are employed by the availing of foster homes, ilare we find it said lisa! these homes are easier to find Hum is generally supposed. During the past year some four hundred and fifly-lwo applications have bmi received for children, varying in ages from one' week to scS'cntcen years. (These wore airefully scrutinized, and something over forty per cent, of them turned down after an investigation as unsatisfact- ory for some reason or other. The "placing out" system has its merits, but likewise its dangers, and these arc carefully guarded agninsl. "It is !he supreme object of the Department of Neglect- ed Children to give every child ti lighting chance, and if a child is not happy in a foster home, that constitutes surtident reason for its removal, without other grounds of complaint." The per- centage of success, however, met with under the system has been large. In reading the pamphlet one becomes awakened to the idea that even in Hie land of opportunity, with its large and imcongested acres there exist problems and conditions which are met with in older lands. True it is that the nature of present circumstances they are not on n wide and extended scale. But with the increase of population, and the natural growth of cities, who is there to say that these very problems might not approach the magnitude of those which confront authorities in an older civilization. To prevent its spread and to kill the. evil in its in- ception is the province and purpose of the different institutions which are acting under the guidance of the Children's Protection Act of Albcrtn. Those who have embarked on, and shown an interest in. the work are worthy not only of the cuintnciidntion but of the grati- tude of Their iL-Iiuw citizens. No labor merits greater approba- tion. The work is for Hie future of the notion. The population of Alberta with its diversity of race, creed and temperament, pre- sents new diflicilllies, to overcome which there lias been a wise and successful endeavor. A responsibility has been undertaken and pursued on lines which appeal to common sense. In the working there is evidenced the conception of correct duly and procedure. Of 'necessity, reforms and improvements on the present lines, under new ideas and experiences, must follow. But from what has been accomplished there remains no doubt that a policy has been inaugurated which has in it everything which goes for the good of juvenile humanity and posterity.

BUILD THE WATERTON LAKE ROAD ITS ROAD'MAKING program for the year the Provincial Government would do well to take into consideration the de- mands of the roads in the Waterton Lakes district. The roads will be more than pleasure roads, although from that stand- point alone the project is worthy of the best consideration. There is no doubt but that the Waterton Lakes are destined to become the play grounds for Southern Alberta and the Provincial Gov- could-do no more popular work than to send u con- jptruction gang to that part of the Province at once. Aside, how- ever, from the pleasure part of the plea, there is an urgent de- iJnaud for the work in the interests of the farmers and settlers that part of the Province. The reclamation work on the !Bouth of the boundary means much to the people of Cardstou 'district, and if these roads were put into shape there is no doubt that much money would be. side of the line. The farmers are all busy in that section and the Herald would sug- ;gest to the Government that the Waterton district roads j would offer a fine opportunity for work fur the "trusties" at the I provincial jail. The roads already buiit by the prisoners are a I credit to the Province and the people would be only too glad to! have the government extend the system as rapidly as possible. The only possible objection there can be to prison labor is when it comes into competition 'with other workers, but in the scheme as suggested by the Herald there could be no such objection, and there is no doubt but that the work being so urgently needed the Jjeople of the south country would be pleased to see a large gang 'of the men now living at the expense of the people put io work to make the roads leading to the Waterton Lakes as good as any in the Province. Old England raises money us any country and does it without making the. consumer pay taxes to Itie favored manu- facturer. Wlitit possible object could the Bordeu government hulling in on the provincial work of building mads unless it were lo linvr, the handling ol' immense sums ui' during; election times. i D. 0.

THE DEPENDENT AND DELINQUENT ANNUAL REPORT issued on the work done with regard to the care of dependent and delinquent children in the Province is an interesting little human document, touching on phases of society -with which most of us are unacquainted. The pamphlet deals with the work carried on by Children's Aid So- cieties, under the spirit of the Children's Protective Act, and the success which has attended the efforts of these organizations is .expressed in the sentence that "the results have shown in higher ideals of citizenship, and a general higher moral tone in the com- munity." The children who have been dealt with are divided into iwo classes, Dependents and Delinquents. They comprise members of many nationalities, including an Icelander, and of various de- nominations. The ages vary in the former class from under one age to sixteen years, arid in the latter from seven vjars io seventeen. The statistics stibmilied deal only with cases which have. passed through the different Shelters in the Province, or through the Juvenile or other Courts. They do not include innumerable cases which havje been dealt with by the different agents and by (lie Superintendent daily. These include cases as of boys who A City Merchant Has Interesting Experience Another Lethbridge Merchant Proves Out the Surest and Most Economical Way to get More Sales and Bigger Profits "The Result of our Page Adv. which appeared exclusively in The Herald on Friday afternoon last, was that on Saturday we did the biggest days business Ms store has done for the past four years."

The first option provides that the probable pur- chase price of the animal or animals, plus allowance for freight, feed, etc., must he forwarded IQ the the Live Stock Commissioner. The Government, upon application, will give information as to probable cost. Under the option any number of cat- Uo, sheep, swine, or poultry will he procured for the party applying. The second option provides that 50 per cent, of the purchase money must be paid in cash, and. five per cent, inter- est will be charged upon the balance.
