The Edmonton Saturday News in its Inst issue hud-an article on the political aituation in Alberta, from the Dominion atandpoint. It made some gucaaea aa to the probable can-didatea and the.Herald reproduces the article as follows : When the ne.xt Dominion general election ia heW, Alberta will send seven mombers to Ottawa, instead of four as at present. The exact boundaries are as follows: EDMONTON AND VICTORIA. boundary of the province, which is followed till Calgary' constituency ia touched again. In Maclcod constituency are all the plactfS on the Calgary. Maclcod line of the C.P.K. south of Midnaporo and all of those on the Crow's Nest west of but not including Lethbridge MEDICINE ILAT. The dividing line between Edmonton and Victor4a running south from the northern boundary of the province is the meridian between the Slst and 22nd ranges, putting Athabasca Landing in Edmonton. Then it runs up stream along the Saskatchewan river to the town of Fort Saskatchewan and along its western limit, leaving the town in Victoria constituency. Then it comes down the nteridian between 22nd and the 23rd rtingcs to the north boundary of the o2nd township. Clover Bar is thus in Edmonton and East Clover Bar and Agricola in Victoria. From this point the southern boundary of Edmonton constituency runs west along the north boundary of the 52nd township to the river at Edmoaton city. It follows the Saskatchewan river upstream-^to where the Brazeau river joins it. Going along the Brazeau it strikes duewest from the source of that stream to the western boundary of the prov -incc, along that boundary to the northern boundary and along the latter to the point from which we stiirt ed. So much for Edmonton. Now to return to its neighbor, Victoria, where we left it at the northenr boundary of the 52nd township. It follows that boundary in an easterly direction ta Beaverhilla Lake. It follows the ritore of that lake till it meets the north boundary of the 50th township. From there H zigzags to the eastern boundary of the province. It goca along the north  em boundary of the 50th townahip to the meridian betvieen the 13th and 14th rangea, then aouth to the north boundary of the 49th townahip, along It to ihe meridian between the lath and lath ranges, then south to the north boundary of the 48th townahip and along it to the eastern boundary of the orovincA 8TKATHCONA. Its northern boundarj' is the south- The western boundary of Medicine Hat is the annte as the eastern boundariea of Macleod and Calgary. Its northern boundary is the south -em boundary of Red Deer from the meridian between the 24th and 25th ranges east. Its eastern .bpundary is the eastern boundary of the province from the north boundary of the ^aoth township south and its aouth-oni boundary, the international line, up to within tt fpw miles of the western boundary of the province. In Medicine Hat constituency are the cities of Medicine Hat and Lethbridge, Knymond, Magrath, Cardston and the whole of the country through which the Alberta Hallway and Irrigation Campany's lines pass.

Here the southern boundary of the constituency runs easterly to the meridian between the teth and 17th ranges, then,south to the north boundary of ihe 40th township and along it to the east  �rn boundary of the province. �ED DEEH. ItedDccr's northern boundary is the southern boundary of Strathcona except in the extreme west, where- its neighbor is EJdnionton. From the point where the line due west from the source of the Brazeau river strikes the western boundary of the province, it goes south along the latter to the north boundary of the thirtieth township, and then . along it straight across the province and north to where Strathcona ia met again. In Red Deer constituency will be the towns of Ponoka, Laeombe. Red Deer, Penhokl, Innisfail, Olds, and Didsbu'ry, and all those on the CP. R. branch out of Lacomba. CALGARY. The northern boundary of the constituency of Calgary is the southern boundary of Red Doer from the west-em limit of the province to the meridian between the a4th and the 25th ranges. This meridian is its eastern boundary as far as the north boundary of the aand township, which is then followed back to the western limit of the province . Resides the city of Calgary and its suburbs the constituency includes Car�taira, Croaafleld, Airdrio, DanlT, Cochrane, Strathmoro. Midnapore ia on the aoutbem boundary line. MACLEOD: The dividing line between the two remaining conatltuenciea. Macleod and Medicine Itet, ia a most devious one. Macleod's northern boundary runs the length of Calgary's aouth-ern. The meridian between the 24 th and a/lth rahgea ia folia wed In a southerly direction to the north boundary of the I9th townahip. Then we go along this to the meridian between the aand and aSrd ranges. Following this in a southerly direc -tion we come to the Belly -river, into which the St. Mary's river eiitera further down. These two rivers constitute the boundary till tips aouth-ern boundary of the Blood Imlian ro-aerve is reached. It ia (ollowad aa far a� the meridiaa betwswt ttearth and aath rangaa.. TMa is taken to the northern boundary - of 'the 9nd township, along which we go to the meridian between the 3�th and SOth rangea. Conring south alongvthia we reach the Waterton lakaa, the eaat-erly and' southerly boumlariea of which wa follow io the iatamational boundary Una: Wa ara thsa but a short distaacs from tlw'vftttrn election comea along. But Mr. McCarthy is much 8a:fer than he would have been if he had had to face a contest shortly after Mr. Cuahfng's defeat of Mr. Bennett and no matter who couKs out against him he will in all likelihood win by a comfortable majority. Mr.Herron, the Conservative member for the old constituency of Alberta has developed greatly since entcringthe House. He is an old timer in the country-, with a glad hand for everybody, and takes hia dutiM seriously. Malcolm Mackenzie, M.P.P. for Macleod was his oppon -ent in 1904 and^it would not be at all surprising should they line up again. OtherLibeng possibilities are C. S. Hotchkiss of Ciaresholm and R. A. Wallace, ex-M.P.P. of High River. THItEE VIRGIN FIElJ)S. In Victoria, lied Deer and Medicine Hat, the way is open for a completely new set of candidates. There will lie a lively contest for the Liberal nomination in Victoria. Tha names of the two local members, rank Walker, M.P.P.- and J. D. Holden, M.P.P., are being freely mentioned. Ilut it will be in Red Oeor that the roost active campaign for the Lib -cral nomination will take place. Already the claims of various men of prominence in the party are being discussed. George W. Smith of Red Doer, who was a close second to Dr. Mclntyre for the nomination in Strathcona a year agO) is believed to have the best chance. The friends of John T. Moore, M.P.F., afe keeping him before the public, while there are a very large number who would like to see Dr. Clark of Olds at Ot tawa. If he should be sent there, he would certainly do the constituency great credit and it is a pity if the province could not in some way have the advantage of his services in some department of public life. Conservative possibilities are Andrew Oilmour of LaQomhe, who gave Mr. Puffer a close run for the local House and J. A. Jackson, the welt known Ponoka barrister, while if -Rev.. Dr. Oaetz of Red 'Deer, Mr. Moore's opponent in the provincial elections would care to accept the nomination, be would find many of his party associates to sup* port him for it. Altoffathor the situation in Red Deer ia decidedly the most itttereating in ihe province. Whatever Candida tea-take the field, the result will be close, combo and Red Deer are all included in this new riding and only a few votes dividsd the parties. in aadi of these. On tho north, p�rt of ponoka constituency is included, where for the provincial house Mr. Jackson gave Dr. McLeod. the Liberal member, a close run, while in the south, part ot Rosebud, which Mr. Biebert one of the two Conservatives sitting at' Edmoi>toa''rapiieseaU, is to be considered. Mr. Hiahert's horn town, Did.^uryt is i|i Red Daer. may rest assured, therjefore, that when the writs are issued, the spec-taculor fight of the province will lie in this constituency. In Medicine Hat, it is generally agreed that W. C. Simmrons, the member of the local house for Leth-{liridge. will be the Liberal candidate As Lethbridge has a bigger country tributary to it than Medicine Hat, the' chances will be in favor of the candidates of both parties conUng from it. Mr. Sissons, of Medicine Hat who made a good run against Hon. Mr. Finlny. is, however, a strong possibility for tho Conserva -tive nomination. Mr. C. A. Mttgrath of Lethbridge, who has lately g'^en up his connection with the A. R. & I., and who vas a member of the .Legislative Assembly at Regina, will likely be in thefield, either as an independent or as the Conservative candidate. At this early date, general forcasts are' of little value, but it looks as if the northern three constituencies the ['.Liberals will have an easy time of it that in the southerii three the chances are strongly in favor of Conservatives and that in the central one. Red Deer, the returns will have to be all in before the result will be beyond doubt.
