REMEMBER THE P'ACE I. M. BANKS & CO. The New General Store WHITNEY BLOCK :-: LETKBRIDGE LEGISLATURE CALLED. To Meet On January 10-Subtidy Ha* Been Received. Edmonton, Dec. 10.-The third session of the legislative assembly of Alberta will be opened for the despatch of public business on January 10th, 190S. The department of the provincial treasurer has just received from the finance department at Ottawa advice that the instalment of the provincial sul^idy on account of support of government and legislation and local purposes; also the p^r capita subsidy will be paid under the Ijetter terms agreement arrived at by the inter-provinicial conference held at Ottawa ini September, 1906, and subsequently ratified by the parliaments of Canada and Great Britain. Under the new arrangement the province of Alberta obtains an increase in the annual subsidy of $130.-000. This increase is paid for local purposes and applies particularly to Alberta and Saskatchewan. For the support of the government and the legislature and for local purposes the province is paid under the new agreement the sum of $180,000. Under the Alberta act in its first form the province was paid only t50,000 for the support of the government and the legislature. No mention was made of a subvention for local purposes. This was the contention won for the province of Alberta delegates, Hon. Premier Rutherford and Hon. C. W. Cross to the interprovinciol conference. It is noteworthy that the per capita subsidy allowed the province is still paid at the rate of 80 cents per head of population of 250,000, though the population, according to the cen-sua^of June, 1906, was only 185,000. At the time the autonomy bills were passed the population of Alberta was unknown, but parliament for the purposes of the per capita subsidy estimated the population at 250,000, which advantage the Alberta delegates were able to hold when new terms were being adjusted. The increase dates Irora the first of July last. When the Stomach, Heart, or Kid-iiey nerves gtrt weak, then theae organs always fail, Don't drug the Stomach, nor stiimilnte the Heart or Kidnoy.s.

Ottawa, Dec. 9.-Parliament is in session, and the debate on the address in reply to the speech from the throne has been provocative of results, some of them expected and pleasant to the Liberals, and some of them unexpected and disagreeable to the Tories. Total Tradt of Canada. Mr. R. B. Hall. M.P. for Peterborough, moved the address and it was his proud privilege to give the House some very interesting facts and figures. Mr. Hall, in a comprehensive, lucid and painstaking effort, j produced for the consideration of the j House figiires showing how the country had progressed since 1896. He enumerated figures which showed that the total trade of Canada in 1896 was $239,025,360, an increase in eighteen years under Conservative rule of only $66,619,906. He compared these figures with the returns up to 30th June, 1907, which showed that the total trade for the preceding year amounted to $617,064,962, or an increas,e in eleven years of Liberal rule of $376,939,592. Trad* With Groat Britain. With respect to British trade, the increase during the last eighteen years of Conservative rule was $16,-297,311. Whereas the increase from 1896 to 1907, during the eleven years of Liberal rule, was $117,319,460. Mr. Hall pointed out that the increase in trade was still in progress, for the four months ending October 31, 1907, compared to the corresponding four months of 1906, showed an increase of $3I,'396,307. Trade With Moxico. Mr. Hall alluded to our trade with Mexico, which had developed since 1896 from $37,876 to $1,137,784 in 1907. This Mexican trade may be credited to the action of the present government in encouraging steamship service between the two countries, for trade with Mexico had expanded from $174,593 in 1905 to $1,-137,784 in 1907. That is, it is six times greater than it was two years ago. Immense Cheese Exports. The exports of Canadian cheese to Great Britain in 1896 amounted to $1{.000,000. wliile in 1907 they amounted to $25,000,000, nearly thref; times as niiich as the exports from Holland and the United St-.ites combined. Mr. Hall gave proper credit to the Agripultural Department for ils fostering care of perishable goods during transportation, in 4he way of cold storage. Increase in Railway Mileage. Speaking of the increase in railway mileage, Mr. Hall drew a comparison between the 16,270 miles operated in 18S6 and the -21,353 miles operated last year. The freight carried in 1906 was 33,000,000 tons in excess of that carried in 1896, and 13,000,000 more passengers were carried in 1^ than in 1896. In addi tion to tlus^tiiere were 3,000,000 tons more carried in the canals of Canada last year than in 1896. Alluding to trade with France, Mr Hall said it was to the credit of the Minister of Finance and the Minister of Marine'and Fisheries that the barriers that have so long stood in the way between France and Canada have now been removed. This was a reference to the new treaty with France, just concluded. What Caused Prosperity. Mr. Hall attr'ibHited the enormous growth and continued prosperity of Canada to tho daVclopniont of her great resources, her sound banking iiistilutioiis, stability in government, wisu and prudent administration, rapid peop'iftj of the, increasing trari:i!)ortatioM facilities, im-pruvonients in canal.s and harbors, deepening of waterway.s, improvement oi St. Lawrence ship channel, iniprovenient in traiif.i)ortalion of j peri^liable goods.. Those, said he, are some r)f the canses set in motion by the l,ibe;-al Government wb.ich have retulled in .such genond e.x-pansion of trade and general pro.s-perity. Eloquent Tribute to Premier. Before moving the address, Mr. ITall paid the following eloquent tribute to Sir Wilfrid Laurier: / "His advancing years but bring to him increasing honors 'and more widely entended fame. His greatest service to Canada has been in scouring unity and progress at home and respect abroad. His (country's welfare has ever been tho guiding star of his.every end and aim, and hence to him the road to fame and to honor has not been so difficult to travel." The figures quoted by Mr. Hall will be a revelation to those people who have been deceived by the specious arguments of the Conservatives and led to believe that the country was going "to the denmition bow wows." They will also see the significance of the comparison betv/cen tho figures of 1896, when the Liberals took oflice, and 1907, after the Liberal policy had been in operation uloyen years. 1 �Hill 1111 if 11 ill IIIII1 H I r H-111-1 'iW'^-M I H II 4-'IW4�HWIIIIIII IW CHAPLAir* AT THE PEN Winnipeg, Man., Dec. 11.-Rev.
