Don't lose sight of that fact. It Js important. The Herald' congratulates Mayor Hardie and council on the businesslike way in which they are going about the task of solving the industrial problem. Lethbridge has every reason for hope in viewing the future. The doubling of population within three years is well within the realm of possibility. The Borden government is not using Macleod right in connection with the new post office. Some one is demonstrating that a promise is not worth the breath used in uttering it. The Herald trusts that the provincial government will see to it that at least one of the railways build south from Calgary this year. The government has a powerful ally in the power to withhold further guarantees. The Macleod Advertiser snems to think that the statement of Mr. Foster about internal elevators was a joke -oh Lethbridge. The Advertiser must be patient. The elevator coming. is A week has passed and still no rush of those British bondholders to get their mouey back. Can it.be, that Britishers have more faith in Alberta than the Conservative press ;and leaders? Travellers say that Lethbridge benefitted more from the Dry Farming Congress than the people here imagine. The name A BOOKLET with the above title N'iTTL has been issued by the Com-mission of Conservation at Ot-amongst whose ex-officio mem-XD.ei's is Hon. A. L. Sifton. Anything iwifch pertains to the coal industry, �^considering the situation of Leth-'"TJri'dge, comes home to its people. A ;.cevie'w. of tao publication, therefore, ; cannot but prove interesting. The author, W. J. Dick, M.Sc, Mining 'Engineer, in his introduction .draws., attention to the fact that the fatality rate in Canada and the Unit-?;ed States is considerably higher than thai-of any of the European coal-mining, countries. The causes which .have led to the increase of loss of life tat the , coal ? mines of the United '^States are similar to those which wl^ave brought about .the like result in .^ttiQ: mines of Canada. These have' >;$Jeen'due, in part, to the lack of pro-Sj^r&sfespftBwoM* re Itvo reflations; :to}-parti'toltJb.e lack of reliable intor-' jnaiion .. concerning the explosives. ?!Tised� in mining, and the conditions .tinder which they can be-safely used s.inJ the; presence of the gas and dust Encountered in mines; and, in part, to the fact that, in the development ,v of; coal mining, not ohly is the rium--,;.'b^r .of > minens Increasing, but many $ttrftvkqbui' from which coal is being taken 4re.; either becoming deeper, or are %^|f}tbate4 further from the entrance, ,|^^merefgo6d: ventilation is. more diffl-IS^iai}C)ut,-;and.;dangerous accumulations of |f(�5pioBivergas are more frequent. -,.,in addition to these causes there : is "an added one with ^regard to the a^rfateUUes in Canada. This is due to fii'^tl^ift^t;:thai;^the^men generally em-ji'^lS^.?*n' 'thymines are npt; as a Jjfo^f!uffi?M*ca3%^ few- the .-miners in ^^e' coal-mining has >,�,.. become; a more specialized science. ;!jAMiningJ: legislation,  has 'been very Guard Against Medical Tyranny COttaWa Free Press) The medical profession has done and is doing a magnificent work, nobody has any desire to belittle that work, but while we may be willing to give it full credit in its own sphere Canadians must see to it that thsy do not become more "doctor-ridden" than they are. fo^jfy|c^v^iia^e::(^untries^of Europe and iff'n�i|ch'6f the regulations in' force have �E'> j, been the" ^results' of awful disasters, ^�ach7v:ak^that:'at'.3Gou|ri�res in France ^'^'r.l9.0$,.'Xa�re. more than ^�ra^00�mea-and bpys were killed.

One assertion, for instance/is> that the gov- ernment has already spent the ?7,400,-000-involved for current expenses, and, in the elegant language employed, "will have to dig" to replace the money. As/a matter of fact the money is in the Royal Bank, where it always has been, to the last dollar. The very point at issue in the suit was whether the bank should pay the money over to the province or return it to the, original investors, or any other purpose, because the Royal Bank refused to give it up until the highest tribunal, in the Empire had given its judgment. The statement was an absurd and malicious untruth. The situation, is by no means the same as it was before the legislation was passed annulling the A. & G. W. concession and appropriating the proceeds of the bond sale to the. general revenue of the province. The Privy Council decides that tteJ cancellation of the dubious deal with Clark and his outfit of Kansas City adventurers was entirely legal and proper. That unsavory enterprise, at all events, �will never be heard of again. What the Privy Council did, with its traditional caution and- regard for vested interests, was; to decide that the province had. no power to take the money for its own purposes, although the security was equally as good and the rate of interest ^exactly the same,' but that it must allow the bondholders, who had invested in railway securities, the opportunity of taking it back if they so desire. The indications are that an arrangement will be reached^! with the bondholders who will be quite content to let their profitable and well secured loan to the province stand.   ? The-Yprovince, yritt have to pay. its ryvn �wt.n of d-e'endir-c the action, no more and np Ifess, as it was agreed between counsel in advance that each side should meet its own expenses, no matter what the eventual decision was.. As the provincial attorney general, who draw& a salary for attending to legal business of the province, antlj his staff, did most of the-work, these expenses, even including travelling, will not be excessive. It is true that the province will have to pay the interest on the money during the time it has been in litigation, but to accuse the government of "financial debauchery," "confiscatdon," "incapacity," and worse, is also to accuse the Alberta legislature, the Alberta Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court of Canada of the same thing, because they, after exhaustive consideration, sustained the government's action. � The representations that the province is swamped under a flood of debt, that it is on the verge of bankruptcy, and that its credit is nofl-exiateent, is another utterly baseless mis-statement. The total debt of the province, at the end of the year, was A Good Opportunity $650 will handle half acre, lot with good house North Ward-fenced, water, light and furnace m For full particulars apply to ag'ents iyii^II.j3^^^ � SJC.ESTH OPPOSITE ALEXANDRA HOTEl, Reliable Fire Offices Represented' by us. PHONE 1343 $14,400,000, which, considering what has' been accomplished, is no unreasonable burden. The fact that the bonds of the Dunvegan railway, guaranteed by the legislature, have not been-sold in London was due to the generally recognized condition of the bond: market in respect of all klnd3 of-rjUiway securities, and had no more to do with the financial operations of ,th,e*r province of Alberta than the Great Cham of Tartary has to do with the' winning of the Stanley Cup. V.Mr. Sifton's government entered in.-to' an arrangement which, had it been sustained by the court of highest appeal, would have been to the manifest advantage of the province. It was not sustained, but no embarrassment results, and the monetary cost is comparatively trifling. -"It is an ill bird that fouls its own nest," runs the proverb, and the men a,iid-f the newspapers 'who are aspersing the credit and reputation of their 6^n province, without rhyme or reason, for the sake of a. supposed party advantage, -are rightfully classed with this particular species of malodorous '!
