That fact 1-4 was clearly empha'sized in connection with the accident at 'ihe Chinook mine. It is too much to expect that bodies can be I E m ;vjh|Id for forty hours awaiting the arrival of an outside man. If ,the weather had been hot it would have been almost an impose-�Sijjility. The law does not permit of bodies being removed until jthe coroner's jury gets busy and there should be better provision Jlijan tliere is for such officials. The trouble is that the fees allowed 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 to drop business for a day, and sometimes two days and jdraw a beggarly fee as a reward. f ; ',: '"i 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 tp make it a position worth while for a good man. The position i :>iiEglls for intelligence ^d the government would not be justified ^^i^r appointing'.a man who was not qualified to^jiroperly dis- & ip^ duties of so responsible a position. .In ^yiew of that fponsibihty'lthe Provincialvdovemmenl should make an effort place the coroners in a position ttiat good men would be in-:,, induced to acL To quote Ontario fees doeS'not'meet the case in th^ West. The conditions in Ontario and in Alberla are not ' jBiialagous. have been warned allev, slight infractionof't'Sly bylaws'instead of being brought before a judge. Here the.^scnsible^procedure has been adopted of giving them advice;'und using "a friendly influence to start them on a new path. Having referred to these cases the report shows that there has not been relatively a great the number of delinquents, the total for 1912 being 384, as agaipst 616 for the two .previous yeai-s. 'With regard to dependent children there is; I however, a large proportionate increase. The outline of the work done for the amelioration of the child condition as it exists in many parts of Alberta is extremely pi fliseworthy. In addition to the admirable' scheme of tvhild* ren's Shelters, further means are employed by the availing oi foster homes. Here we find it said that these homes are easier to find than is generally supposed. During the past year some four hundred and fifty-two applications have been received for children, varying in ages from one "week to seventeen years, These were carefully scrutinized, and something over forty per cent, of them turned down after an investigation as unsatisfactory for some reasonor other. The "placing out" system has its merits, but likewise its dangers, and these are carefully guiirded against. "It is the supreme object of the Department of Neglected Childrei\ to give every cMld a fighting chance, and if a child is not happy in a foster home, that constitiities sufficient reason for its removal, without other grounds of complaint." The pefr-centage of success, however, met with under the system has been large. In reading the pamphlet one becomes awakened to the if^ea that even in Alberts, the land of opportunity, with its large and uncongested acres there exist problems and conditions which are met with in older lands. True^ it is that in the nature of present circumstances they are not on a wide and extended scale. But; with the increase of population, and the natui-al growth of cities, who is there to say that these vei-y problems might not approach the magnitude of those whidi confront authorities in an older civiUzation. To prevent its spread apd to kill the evil in its inception is the province and purpose of the different insiitutions: which are acting under the guidance of the Children's Protection Act of Alberta. Those who have embarked on, and shown an interest in, the work are worthy not only of tlie comniendation but of the gratitude of their feilow citizens. No labor merits greater approbation. The work is for the futurfe of the nation. The population of Alberta with its diversity of race, creed and temperament, pre--sents new difficulties, to overcome which there has been a TOse and successful endeavor. A responsibility has been undertaken and pursued on lines which appeal to comnion sense. In the working there is evidenced the conception .of correct duty and procedure. Of necessity, reforms; and improvements on the present fines, under new ideas and experiences, must follow. But from what has been accompUshed there remains no doubt that a poficy has been inaugurated wWch has in. it everythfaag which goes for the good of juvenile hum'aiM,Jy and posterity. , OUR POINT - OF ylfiW Old England^aise3*'^^much."inoney-a^ any countisy and does' it without makihg'fbe consumer pay taxfes-lb the favored'jnanu-facturer. .'

The government has decided to help somewhat in the matter and the Department of Agrl-ouUirre will select and purchase- animals and .iWlll distribute them to. Sas-ka:tchWan farmers under. ce?'tain conditions. The nrst condition is that apsUcatign must be made to the government "/or. whatever the .farmer niay desire before April 15. There are three options poBSlble. The first oiptlon provides that the probable purchase price of the animal or animals, pJufi allowance for freight, feed, etc., must be forwarded ito the, office of the Live Stock Commissioner. The Government, upon application, will give iDfornriatlon as to probable cost. Under the option any number of cat^ tie, sheep, swine, or poultry will be procured for the party applying. The second option pToyides that 50 per cent, of the purchase money must be paid In ca..Bh, and five per cent. Interest will be charged upon the balance. Not more than one carload of cattle .Will 4>e delivered to a purchaser under this option. The third, option in for creamery patronr only, and provides that the purchaser may secure wtthou't a-ny cash payment' not more fhan one carload of milch cows, providing, however, that the purchaser's notes �re endorsed by the Creaqiery Aasociation, and these notes must be a> Hen upon the .cattle purchased. Full payment must bo made within three years. These terms ought to do something toward the development pt mixed -farming In ithe J)i'ovlnce, and if the (Scheme is properly carried out, W}th s. complete disregard of politics, It should : prove a most satisfactory one. ...
