MORE 'REGISTRY OFFICES" Premier Sifton" -recently committed Himself to the centralization policy in regard to registry offices. The On- tario idea of a. registry office, and sometimes rsvo. in every county, may be over doing it, but it is the duty of a government, in our estimation, 10 bring these conveniences as -close -to the people possible. In Alberta this is not done. 'We have only tvro registry offices in the entire p'rovince it tile present time, one at Calgary one at Edmonton. In, Saskatche- wan, there is a registry office in each judicial and. we have not or read of complaints-" from that province. On the other hand there has -been more or less complaint in different parts of this province. In city there is much delay in tran- sacting .business with, 'the Calgary of- fice, not on account of mismanage- ment'there 'but through the mail ser- vice and the amount work that must necessarily have to be handled in an office "where the business of half a province is done. In Alberta and all the western provinces property is con- stantly changing hands and more deeds are registered in one day -than would probably -be registered in an j Ontario office in a fortnight, and still coming periodical in their recurrence and disastrous in their effects, mak- ing transoceanic navigation more and more and disturbing the atmospheric equilibrium of regions ?.n which they were previously unknown. "Italian meteorologists are not with- out plausibility in connecting the cy- clones of last week, which 'have in- volved so much of Lombardy and the Venetian territory in ruin, agricultural and industrial, with the atmospheric disturbance, the violent subversion of aferial equilibrium, due to the great American forest fires, which, reduc- ing wide tracts of woodlands to prair- ie, siuSi b> the violent evaporation supervening have caused the vertigin- ous gales and the (cloud- bursts) under which the year's agri- cultural labour has deplorably col- lapsed." A London meteorologist described the influence of forest vegetation on the world's weather. "Spain and he said, "hav- ing been denuded of their trees, have in consequence become much more dry iu climate. "Recognising this principle, the In- dian Government is planting whole districts "with trees in order to in- duce a heavier and more regular rain- fall. The Toronto Globe is trying to make the Whitney Government responsible for Gunner Moir's escape from the Hamilton. The next thing 'the gov- ernment will be held for people becoming insane, Ontario, after having many times charged that the west was robbing it, is now stealing1 -from us. It is going to have a License Board for the en- tire province the same as Alberta and Saskatchewan. Tiie plan has worked well here and Ontario is wise in de- ciding to adopt it Rev. Edward Cragg, eighty years of age, a pioneer, minister in Ontario, is going to keep on pioneering. He has taken a homestead near Eyremore, north of this city. This is proof that the old as well as the young, have faith in this country. "It is quite possible that forest de-. nudation is unsettling the world's weather, and causing extraordinary conditions in countries, like England, remote from the seat ot mischief." No stronger argument could 'be of- fered for the planting of -trees on ev- ery farm in Southern Alberta. "With the trees there" 'Bill "be a windbreak, to keep off the winds, and then as scientists tell us, moisture is cer- tain to be retained. Without the 'trees the wind nas free play and dries up the sofl. Farmers who .have system- atically attended to tree planting and given the trees attention have suc- ceeded in, developing them, even m .a dry season, as witness the case relat- ed in our correspondence from Winni- fred the other day.
