The Alberta session lasts about sii ireeXs as a rule, the speeches are to be short, as Mr. Hoadley maintains, only a few short-: hand reporters would bs required and the job would last only a few weeks, j Premier Stewart, rather kaockei CapL Pearson's argument In tbe head, when ha said the government was willing to engage all tbe returned soldiers tn the province, who vrere capable sten- ographers. We think the Premier acted wisely in rejecting tbe proposal to bave a Hansard. No other province in ths Dominion has taken such a step and there has been frequent agitation to abolish at Ottawa. TELEPHONES, ROAOS. HOSPITALS AND SCHOOLS The Albetia government purposes following a policy of rural develop- ment. The speech from (he tbrooft at the opening of the conveys that impression, An extensive' road building and telephone ex- pansion relate to betterment ot con- ditions in the rural sections of the province. Good roads mean better transportation facilities and better transportation facilities help ihe coun- try districts and the villages, towns und cities, also. The need is that these roads should be of as permanent a character as possible. Alberta's telephone system was the first gov- ernment ovrned system In Canada, Pro- bably no province is provided with as many rural lines as Alberta. The ini- tial outlay has been heavy but the expenditure has helped greatly in (From Our Own CorrerpornJenU N'OBLEFOHD.

The decision to extend and improve the system cannot be criticised. It Is a wise policy at this particular time as the work will employ many ot ths returned soldiers who are seeking em- ployment. Premier Stewart indicates that the telephone rates are to be in- creased to meet the- rising cost of ma- terials and maintenance. We have become accustomed to increases ia recent years, but the people will ejc- peel the government to produce the evidence to establish the necessity to advance the rates. No one desires that the system should lose money; if It were permitted to tlo so, it would be an argument against public ownership. As long the public la satisfied that the system is efficiently and econom- ically directed and that the increased rate is demanded in order to put the system on a proper financial footing, COMMUNITY SETTLEMENT AND CO-OPERATIVE BUYING AND SELLING C-.: ,Hoa.
