Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 16, 1910, Lethbridge, Alberta Herald olume III. Lethbridge, Alberta. Wednesday; February Iti, 1910, Number IGISLATION BEFORE THE HOUSE mportant Bill Intro- duced By Attorney- General GOING AFTER TBEJJLCJL AT Premier Rutherford And Hon. Duncan Marshall Assure Gleichen Deputation -Legislature Will Settle Edmonton, Feb. the Legisla- ,ure yesterday Attorney.General Cross gave notice Chat he would introduce a' new act respecting towns. This act is taken as other municipal acts are, fiom similar legislation in Saskatche- wan. The improvement over the old municipal ordinance is that provisions with respect to powers and duties of town oflicer, mayor, secretary-treasur- er, solicitor, auditor, town police, pro- visions regarding town elections, sec- tions dealing with submission of money by terms and provisions regard- ing assessment and with proceedings to quash such bylaws and provisions regarding assessment, and taxation in a town, are much more complete than in the old ordinance.. The actual dif- ference to in the province is in the fact .that the machinery of go- vernment in towns will be very much more explicitly denned. The method o? assessment in the proposed act is much the same as 'the system at pre- sent in force at Edmonton. The pro- visions of the act being apparently modelled on the Edmonton charter in this regard. The provisions .with respect to poll tax are similar to Edmonton amendments of some years ago. The provisions with regard to the sale of lands for taxes are the same as those contained in other mun- Edmonton, Feb. Agricul- tural college, according to statements made yesterday in reply to a deputa- tion from Gleichen and Calgary -the government has not decided unalter- ably upon Strathcona as the site for the college or upon the principle of placing the college and the university under one management.' "It docs not look as if it was settled, does was the remark of the premier. When the buik of the deputation left Park Evans, editor of the Gleichen Call with two others, stated to the government that Gleichen wanted even chances only. Submission of, the case to the legistature was what they wanted. "That is what will be done." said Mr. Marshall. "It will be submitted to the legis- said Mr. Marshall, "If tliat course is taken no fault can be found. The people should be satisfied." It has been stated that the Premier had said that the legislature.of 1907 had decided and that the college had been located. Either that is not cor- rect or the government has changed its mind. Either is good news. STOCK JUDGING AT THE CLASSES Agriculture School Continue interesting Sessions- Well Attended The government agricultural classes in the market building are increasing In interest, the attendance during this icipal acts and are based on the sys- week ibeing very large and a great tern in force in Manitoba. It has Of interest is 'being aroused am ng those in attendance, especially in adopted in all proposed municipal acts for Alberta. Borrowing The provision, with respect to bor- rowing by way of debenture do not differ radically with 'those already in force save that the borrowing powers of towns have been increased from ten to fifteen per cent of assessment. The provisions of the new municipal con- trovered elections act apply to elections under the town act in the .same way as under other muni- cipal acts. The changes made in the Saskatchewan act are matters of detail only and the whole town act follows along the lines of the present municipal ordinance. Sale of Chattels The Attorney General's bill regard ing the sale of chattels wil also be introduced on Thursday. In all agree- ments in connection wdth agrlcultura are a number of fine ly pointed and absolutely imprope conditions which are never read by the purchaser and are never really under stood if -read. The new act makes no thing 'binding against the purchase unless the" court decide the claim mad by the machinery Company is abso lutely fair and proper, Protect Farmers Another bill along the same line foe brought in by Duncan Marsha of Agriculture. The objec of this bill is to render null and voi any mortgages forming part of th purchase contract of farming machin- ery and to prevent, machinery com- panies thing caveats against farms of purchasers, even though the purchase 10 PROTECT THE RESERVES Of Forests in the West Railways and Others Concerned Ottawa, Feb. 15. -The Dominion gov- irnment is taking steps to protect its iorest reserves along the lines of trans- continental railways in the West, and nexrt month several large patrols will be sent to Alberta to work along lines in the northern part of the province. while other patrols will look after the forests along the great waterways of Alberta as far north as.
