And now it Is up to the present city council to advocalc a time when the new charter shall take effoci. From discussions on the street it is learned that there Is, a great deal of discussion as to when .the new charter should become cHcctlve. and the llrst commissioner!) elected. "The people have shown without a shadow ot a doubt tliat they want commission govemnicni and they want It badly," said one heavy taxpayer to the Herald this morning, "and I hope the council will not wait any longer than absolutely necessary to put commlssLon government into effect. It the present form ot government Is considered by the ratepayers to be so rotten that they turn t down by over 500 majority, then it looks to me as if the council should not desire to keep^tho present form in effect for a whole year. Personally think that the charter should set the date ot the change early in the spring so that the' new commissioners can be elected and be at their posts before the summer's work commences. If there has been bungling we do not want another year of it." Mayor Hatch thinks the now charter should not go Into effeftct until the time of the annual municipal elections next December. He says that the amount of money to be spent dur lug the coming year must necessarily be small, and does not see the need of making a change in the middle of the year. However, it will rest with the present council to suggest some time for the change, and this may or niay-'not bo ratified by the legislature as that body sees lit. As tor the exteiision of the city limits, the mayor says that nuesllon will have to bo settled before the new charter goes to the government print er. There Is such a diversity ot opinions In this particufafv that'it promises to bo one oT the hardest problems which will have to be dealt with in completing the now charter.

B.Cooley and Dr. J, Walter Vaughn, of this city, announce Ihu successful transfusion of blood by a syringe, a new and revohitlonary method, which they adopted after ortlinary methods failed. The case was that of a new born bal)e whoso life was despaired because ot hemorrhages. The transfusion was tlio only means of saving it. and the first attempt tailed. As a last resort blood was drawn into a glass antitoxin syringe. Then by the usual methods of using these .syringes, it was injected Into a vein of the babe. The child revived and now seems to be on the road to gocd health. "The method was highly successful," Dr. Cooiey declared. "It seems mucli simpler and more generally applicable than tlio ones generally employed. It also appears to be fiillcker 1)\ porformanco and action and more active in its results." DR.

U is clear that Mr. Borden's views are in essence, even to the turn of the phrase, the views of Ihu admiralty as expressed by Mr. Churchill.

Mr. Sittcn has scarcely missed a day in which he does not boost his province In some way: The Hon. A. h. Sifton, premier of Alberta, is now in London In connection with the general business of the province, which shares with the adjoining province of Saskatchewan the distinction ot being the youngest ot the Canadian provinces. Mr, Sifton, who succeeded the Hon. .\. C. Uutlier-ford as premier in 1910, was previously Chief .lustice of the Supreme Court of Alberta. His younger brother, the Hon.

To a representative of the "Standard of Kmpire," Mr. Sifton, speaking ot the growth ot Alberta, said that last year 20,000 acres were taken up by settlers every day of the year, while for every school day one new school was opened. Last year 55,000 Immigrants entered the province, and this year It is e.vpected that the nnm-bor will be nearly 75,000. "The opening up of the province by means of new railways Is going ahead rapidly," Mr. Sifton continued. "This year 700 miles of line will have been added. The railway to Athabasca Landing, which was completed last summer, opens up a largo area north of EHmonton rind about 100 miles of a railway to the Peace River country, which will eventually extend to the boundary of British Columbia, have been bulK. Another line, which �will run through the northern part of the province, is the Rdmonton, Dunvegan, and British Columbia, and at least 80 miles of steel will be laid on this rall-v/ay before Christmas. "In conseciuence of the new lines opened during the year, and the new er|uipmpnl that ha.s been added, tlicre has not been so much congestion lu the movement of the grain crop as there was last season, alihouKh it cannot be .said that conBCStioii did not exist. Next year the Canadian Northern and the (Irand Trunk I'a-citic will be in a position to handle iiuicli more of the gialn tfaflic than they have done hitherto, and Utls should remove the dilllculty in [uture. "There has been a lack of labor lor railway and public works all through the season. More work is being done on railway construction in the winter now than was formerly the ci�sc partic\ilarly in tlic mountains, so that the slack season in the labor market has been considerably shoit-eneil. "Mixed laruiing is being taken up more and more fioni vear to year With rej^ard to the statements lliat have been made as to a shortage of cattle riisulting from the breaking up of tlio big ranches, tliis is only a temporary state uHairs. The number of farmers kep|))ng n few cattle is steadily increasing, and eventually there will be more animals kept la the province than in the days when , cattle ranching on a large scale was the cliiet industry in Alberta. "The financial , position ot tlio province is particularly lottunatc. The tnt.\l debt is less than �3,000,-000. About one and thrDc-fluartct millions have been expended od roads, bridges, and public buildinBS; and ^lic teinaiudcr on the Kovetn-nicnt telephone system, a renmncra-tivc undertaking. "There arc many good openings tor women in the province. Slenograpli-crs arc in demand at salaries tang--ing from �10 to .?15 a month. Domestic servants and skilled cooks are badly needed. Qualified teachers. cat\ earn from �120 to �210 a year, and graduated nurses are much in demand." , Discussing the political situation in the province, Mr. Sifton said that the present assonilily would not expire until March, 'mil,, and thcro was no intention on the part ot the government to go to the country be-tore then.__ Sole Selling ..One tine situated lot on 9th Street South (near Third Ave. South) $5,200-.r('iiiis.
