It is haixl for capitalists and those representing money interests to s�s-both skies of a question Their idea is thnt money makes th" mure k. but they often fail to see who pro - vhlcs the nsire. Tlie Insurance mil Finance Chronicle of Montreal read-the Alberta CloverniiK-nt a lecture for Collecting taxes on tlie business done by loan companies. Their comment rettds as follows: "Tho lvOgislttlurc of Alberta, no doubt having 'a swelled heiul' nml not having a great deal of ex| po.iiv of taxing what is absolutely necessary lor the building up of the province is simply Htupid. What all our provinces want including Alberta, is cupitul t il>- velop their resources. The Idea of dis couruging capiflul which they so Imdly is the height of absurdity We would recoinatietid Ailwrta, r any Other province, to repeal this kind of logislntion iin ifiiickly as possible One of our older provinces dd 11�� bume kind or thing, but any piov � llWG tluit tri�-s this experiment will nave to pay for it three fold. The v great danger, however, of this sort '.of.- legislation in that H naturally ' t�Ads to the withdrawal of capital altogether." The Chronicle evidently hus con vlncod itself thnt Allwrta cannot get along without l.ouns. Thut is unite true. OapHal is needed to develop to undertaki our resources. But is it not wiuully true that capital needs resources in  'which to invest. Sumotiraes, as is the case just now, the demand of the resources for cupHul is greater thun the supply of capital. At othcrtimes capital must look for good invest  uvent, that it may make larger interest. U tho province or the nuini-ispalHtes would not tax anything "they need so badly" whew would the revonuo come front? liailway companies, coal companies, flaurmills factories of all sorts, oven stores, vimld l>e the pro|�-r bodies to share >he eople of the electoral district of I^thhridgo might uiklivss a letter ,to Premier Hutherfoixl and the (lovernnient on the subject of Agricultural College that would read very similarly to tlv> let-Ihe iter written by Mr. Illley. who tises tlie Herman s[*-lling for Culgnry. viz:-CMeichen in making his claim*: l.-lllbridge.
