The books are not printed nor bound, nor touched in any way by the American Book Co. Alter Moran who is a publisher purely, and not a printer or binder, secured the read- ers contract, he called for tenders for the binding both Canada and the States. -The Bra- naards of New York won the contract for printing and binding. The fact that the boofcs are bejug printed in New. York is true. Natu ally we would prefer this work to be done in Canada and especially in Alberta. But what are the condi- tions the book publish, ing business, in Canada. Let the Canadian Courier an Independent Canadian weekly of the highest stand- ard tell us: "There is no doubt that it is wel that Canada should print its own school books. Nevertheless it is also true that these can be.produced in New York or Boston more econoin ically and more quickly than in Canada. There are firms there with special equipment and better ma chinery who can produce the book at a speed utterly impossible here They have case making machines for example, which make case faster than twenty-five caseanaker can produce them by hand. Th same is true of other details o manufacture. Canadian boo binderies are poorly equipped am their work does not compare witl those of the United States or Grea Britain. Our school books are, grr eraily speaking, vastly inferior t those made in the other two coun tries." Was not the government.of Albert following the right course in makin a contract with a Canadian putflishin house for school books' of a high clas at a price lower than any othe house would tender? The parents o Albeita want their children provide with the best brwks available and the government secures these book at a bargain, the are tha much better satisfied. As to the books, the Courier, vrhic by the way is edited by John Cooper, a leading Toronto Conserv tive and a member of the Ontari school text book commission, saj-s As to the question of value, th two concerned seem to have made a good bargain. Th books have been examined by th writer, who has also an intimat knowledge of nearly all the bes readers, American and British and he cannot but admit that the are in some respects the finest se of school readers yet The cases are well made; each boo is bound front and back with linen hinge; the stitching, papt and type are first class in c- respect. Mechanically the book are splendid specimens of th book maker's art. Their cost the governments, who will suppl free, is as follows: Prime 13.68 cents; first book, 16.53 cents second book.. 13.91 cents; thir book, 23.75 cents; and fourth bool> 27.36 cents. Considering the qua uy of the work and the number o page.s in each, the price does nc seem excessive. Moreover, th publisher must deliver the book free at the provincial capitals. In a reeent speech Premier Scot of Saskatchewan said that while M Haultain was at ;he head of affair in the Terriiorier, the people paid for poor books, the cost price Vi which was forty ci-nts. this Morang contract the government buys books for whoso cost price is 77 up to contents, not made in New York, but by the best western Canadian educa- tionalists, with good pripor. fine priming bifniiiig iiic very o :-t. Given the same contents, paper, etc.. a book could be made ton times more valuable by being better bound. For aschool book the binding was irn. pohant. The better binding of the Morang book made it worth throe i times as much the bonks submit- ted by the Canada Publishing Co. No denial is made that the first edition of thr> books is ooing printed in New York. A? the time was books being required for the next school commencing next contractors were allowed to receive the first edition from New York. The Moranp Co. purpose installing a ful- ly modern plant and. will print the remaindi-r o! th? editions under their contract. of gossip and to the platform It was a serious charge to ut like nearly all the insinuations Conservative party makes against opponents ii was absolutely with. ut foundation.

The statement of the by- law has been printed and the figures have been given out to the press. Of course these did not explain every- thing, and there may be lots of things that the ratepayers wont to know before they are prepared to do their marking behind the curtain. Dad and the rest of the bunch that legislate for this great centre are very anxious that the people should be made wise on detail of ths affair and are prepared to tell all they know about it and when that is told there will not be much left to tell for what Dad does not know about this matter is not worth stay- ing up all night to find out. I am prettj- sure that if the ratepayers show any anxiety for a public expla- nation of the whole business that Dad would heartily in sympathy with a proposition to hold a public meeting for that purpose.
