Their sound practical instincts are well illustrated if. con- nection with their telephone policy. They lost no time in formulating it after .making sure of uxeir ground and once they decided what line it should take, they proceeded to carry out their plans with an energy and efficiency, which if applied to all public ownership schemes would soon disabuse the minds of the opponents of that principle of their prejudices against it. tittle or nothing is gain- ,ed by all, the "theorizing that goes on about public ownership. It is a good in many instances providing the proper individuals can be found to administer the utilities that the state takes over end there is no reason to believe after studying the circumstances of each case, that under private ownership the people are be- inf made to pay more than they should for the services being rendered 03 that these services are inadequate to their needs. When the -administration presided over by Hr. Hutberford took office, it convinced that better epkone facilities should be afforded the Province. large proportion of these coming into this-part of the already accustomed to the use'-of and if they developiMnt hats not and will uot stake Alberto. a much more attractive place of abode, making not only Jor a more contented body of people at present, but offering additional in- ducements to the great body of pros- pective settlers from other lands than the immediate future is sure to bring. As an administrative achievement the telephone policy Is bound to stand out in the history of represen- tative OUR POINT OF VIEW. Sir Hibbert Tupper says "Not even Sir John" could have beaten Sir Wil- frid Laurier in the last election. That's an eloquent tribute to the strength of Sir Wilfrid. Former Chief .Justice Tuck of New Brunswick said he was offered a knighthood TO retire from the beach. Sir Wilfrid Laurier says the govern- ment did not make him any offer, nor did they want him to retire. Prob- ably the Chief Justice meant to say he would retire if he was given n. knighthood.

He said: "Let him who is without sin cast the first" and he waited some more. Nobody ap- peared to be without sin. "Don't all speak at once." said the iNanaimo member.

Lights BOY'S RESOLU- -instrument found it ter vice that thev desired, at a reason- r, ier any ole p'ursiirh able outlay, it was bound to be of dissatisfaction. At the be- ginning of 1906 all the facilities in Alberta were the local exchanges in cities and towns and the ifaie extending from Edmonton to Calgary. The charges were high and the service poor. Those in the rural districts were not. thought of at all. In the older provinces the Bell .-company had given constant trouble-and was undoubtedly a cruel as well as unpopular monopoly. After going into tie question very carefully the Government came to the that the telephone was an enterprise which from its very nature was well adapted for state control. the record of the corporation and it saw how little dis- posed it was to extend its lines in keeping with the growth of the Pro- vince. At the very first session ef the Legialature it accordingly secured a grant for the purpose of commencing a government system. It believed that it was a good policy to do this concluding any arrangement for the purchase of the existing lines. The Bell people would thus be brought to lvalue how thoroughly the Pro- vince was in earnest and the hands of the administration would be strengthened in future ne- gotiations with them. How well cal- culated this move- was the course of subsequent events has clearly proven By the end of 1907 the Government had built no less than 544 miles of line and acquired 53 miles besides. As time went on and the construction pol icy proceeded with unabated vigor the prospects for a favorable settlement with the Bell Company became all the while brighter.. Less than a year ago a bargain was finally made, by which the entire -Bell system within the pro- vine? was purchased at an average of f per phone. Shortly be- fore that Company had sold out to the .Manitoba Government and had secured per phone. So much for having shrewd business capacity in high public places. It pays better than oratory of the Iciftd that is so frequently tlie test of for political government. In tfce meanwhile the work of reach- ing into- new parts of the Prov- ince proceeded rapidly and by the be- ginnine of 1909 the Government was operating close to 1500 miles of tele- phone making it pay so well thatr it was able as a New Year's pre- sent to announce a reduction in -which amounts on an. average to 35 'per cent.

At half time the .score stood in Pincher's In the second half the play was more even, Lethbridge playing.a bet- ter game, and if anything, had the advantage as the puck was hovering around the! ..Psiclier Greek goal the greater- part of the time. Each team .scored one apiece in this half. TheLethbridge lone tally was scored by Schimnowski, who played a hard game-from start to finish and was the only one of the Lethbridge men who seemed able to. take the puck down. ,the ice with any success. Mc- Gillis in centre, also did some very good work. One of the Pincher Creek players was hurt near the finish in ft collision with Cook 'of Lethbridge and was obliged to quit.
