A. G. MacKAY Irrespective ot political views held, it Trill be universally odraitted that in the death of the late. Hon. A. G. Mac- Kay, Minister ot Municipalities, etc., tho Province of Alberta loses a man of Kreat, and even of brilliant, ability in the Government nnd in tie Legisla- ttm> in Edmonton. The loss the Pro- vince bas sustained is made all tbe keener in. that tho deceased Minister has been forced io let go the reins of the Department which he so sbly handlcd at a time when a man of his mentality and grasp of things was mostly needed. 'iu tho present complex state of municipalities, in tie help in.straight- _ enlng out present tangles, and in mak- ing good tie harm that has been done in the evolving of policies with that too sanguine outlook on the future, biB guiding hand will be grcally missed. In tlia new portfolio.of Health, which was added to bis Department and of which he was the Minister, his un- timely decease cannot but be looked on as- highly unfortunate. In the Department of wnich the late Mr. MacKa'y was the controller he showed a' thorough grasp of the affaire connected wits it He saw where reform was necessary with a business acumen and a thorough understanding of all the facts and'the bearings on the same. His activity, was enormous, and, with the applica- tion of intelligent understanding that went with, it, was o! considerable value.. His energy was of 4ie wlee description and betokened the seis- ing of the responsibility of with a worthy 'consciousness to carry, out fully tho v The'late Af.G. MacKay was of the kind that: comes'to sheer tpuple.d with' eriofgy apd earnestness' to the task in'- hand. Ontario he was a leading figure In'the Legislature and rose to Cabinet posi- tion. In Alberta his rise was rapid. In a political career which -was brief here, covering a period of seven years, he advanced 'in meteoric fashion ib the eminence of a CaiineYiMinister. It was not long before he established hra -worth as a member ot the Legisla f ture of Cabinet timber.

COALDALE fFVom Our Own cvrresooMen COA1.DALB, April Work baa not begun on the land except here and there a little breaking. Ily Wednes- day, however, the laud that lies high will be dry enough to go ahead..given the present weather. It cow seems nevilablo that a good dea of tha crop will have- to bo disced in. as it is too late to plough. The late spring; will !make a great extension acreage over last year Impossible cicept for flax and Sale oats. The acreage In flay will too about the same as last year, and the hay fields have' come through the winter In first class con- dition. The wet April has made it so that there will be about a months' rest from work'' with irrigation at the very least. If present prospects materialize, ihe grain will not need irrigating at all this year. _ (From Our Own Correspondent) WARS'KR.
