Telephone 116. Alberta Government Ea^er to Protect People's Interests. Edmonton, Feb. 14.-WTiat is probably the most important Alberta houso this (tcmoon when ha staUxl the govcrnincnt's policy on the telephone question. Briefly, the government Is hot only going to go into* the long distance business on a huge scal� but it is going to supply all cities, towns, rural municipalities, and local improvement districts that want them with telephones gt the lowest possible price, the province undertaUng the InstallatioQ, opera-iion and maiutenanoo of the whole system all over Um province. The minister did not state any flg-ures, but private members announced tonight their belief tliat Albert* could supply farmers with phones at 910 to 912 a year and giv� long distance connootion for little mono than the cost of a postage stamp. The minister's sp�ech which was brought out in reply to a question by F. E. Walker as to what the i.govemment's policy was on the tele-Iphone question, was absolutely un-eciuivocating. Ue said in pert: "1 have looked at this nwttcr and every member of the govcmtnont has viewed it in the same light, that the introduction of the principle oi public ownership was the most important step yet taken. "The administration, believing it to bo in the Ijest interests of tha people of Alberta, is prepared totakb a stand for this principle." In turning to the Bell telephone, he said that it-^wos well known that it �-as a monopoly. The stock was badly watered. Various commissions had bean appointed to investigate, but So far nothing had been accom -pli&hed. The province, he said, was invaded by this monopoly under a charter granted by a Conservativio government at Ottawa, the most iniiuuitous piece of le^slution ever practiced on any people clalnung freedom, the most extraoixlinary charter in Xact ever gra�t�td by any parliament. Only recently the government at Ottawa appointed a commiission to enquire into the trouble ajt Toro�to and was poUt&ly infornVTd that the compan>- does not intend to be governed by the findings of the conunds-sion. The Alberta government, he said, believes that U it has any functions at all it is to protect tibe people from such monopolies. The opinion TALK ABOUT MORMONS 1i Hon. Frank Oliver Replies to an Attack Upon Them. Ottawa, Feb. 11.- Hon. Frank Oliver takps direct issue with Itev. I'rot. Kilpatrick, Knox College, Toronto, and with Ucv. Dr. Soitwrvillo, general agent of tho rresbj-tcrian church in Canada, in their attitude towards Hurnion immigration into Alljerta. At a nieoting ^n Bloor at. Piwbylcrian church. Toronto, Mr. KiltMtrick said: "The greatest grief in Allwria is Mormon settlement. 1 hose people are MurnKTns first knd Canadians afterwards. It is not mough to say that they grow goo>d crops, but do they grow good Canadians?" Dr. Somerville said: "The Mormon invasion is a sin to be laid at the dan^rous element in Canadian life, andnow hero and the mission board mot with such discouragement." These remarks having been drawn to his attention. Mr. Oliver said: "It does not seem to me that the remarks Quoted arc creditable to the understanding of the gentlenxm who made them, and I hope they are not a (air measure of the Christian spirit of the dmrcfa in which they ane to some extient leaders. Dr. Kil -Patrick is reported to hove said, �bhe greatest grief in Alberta was Mormon Settlement.' I have lived n>any years in Alberto and this is the first, time I have heard that Mormon settlements were a cause of grief. The r^ton no% occupied toy Mormons was unoccupibd until they come and, so far as we can see, it would have remained unoccupied for an interminable period had it not been for their knowledge of ^ke conditions in the ymtLid States and of moans by which these' conditions Could, be overcome or their disad - , vantages minimized. iW have giv-PeoP|e^ en an o)>ject lesson in agriculture in tha southwestern comer of the prairies of Canada whiph has increased the value of the whole semi-arid region of southern Alberta and southwestern Saskatchewan of from tvienty to thirty million acres. '�"Nor can anything be said against their citizenship. They are sober, orderly, law abiding and progressive. With the citizenship of the Mormons the government has all to do, with thair religion it has nothing to do. The churches, which exist for tfce purpose of dealing with matters of conscience, are quitc within thair rights in discussing the meritfl or demerits of religious views of menb-bers of their own or other churches.

It is our aspiration to serve the people.

Toronto, Feb. 15.-In a letter to the Globe, the Rev. T. B. Kilpatrick replies to the Hon. Frank Oliver on tht'Mornion questit n. He denies hav-*ing slandered the Mormons, hut says: "With regard to the Horxoon system. I believe it is worthy of con-demnotiort for two reasons; first, it maintains as a religious belief a principle-polygamy-which is held to be immoral by the overwhelming, majority of the people of the United Slates of America and of the Dominion of Canada, the application of which would be held as a crime under Canadian law. This religious toe-lief, togoilief with the duty of carry-, ing it out', when conditions mekie this possible, is taught in the Mormon text books and is preached in the Mormtm congregations. Mr. Oliver wisely states that tha government must not .impose religious tests But a religious system �ihich propagates an opinion whose logical and practical issue is crime, is a proper subject fdr government inspection. The pity is that any Canadian government should have given a welcome to any such system. Second. Mormonism is a politiical sys-^ tsm, 'imi>erlum ni imperio." Speaking of the plans and methods of the church in America, a Mormon bishop is reported to have said 'Our vote is solid and will remain so. It will be thrown where the mo�t good will be accomplished for tfau church. Then in sonkQ political crisis, the two political parties will bid tor our support. Wo will than hold the ba.1-| Words over a small matter led to an assault Tuesday, in which Robert Evans, formerly president of the miners union, was severely injured by being struck with a pick by Wm. Psctak. The trouble occurred at tha mouth of th: piain entry of the mane at the tintj of cb:inging shifts at 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Evans was going on shift and Psetak comiing off. According to the statements of witnesses who were present, Psotak came out through the door near the ntouth of the entry a!�d left it open-Evans called to him to close it, using Very premptory language which Was empbasieed with an oath. Pwrtak resented the language and replied in kind, telling Evans to close the door himself, that it was his work. At that, Evans struck Psetak with his fist. Psetok who carried his pick in his hand, rushed at Evans and struck him in the face with ,tbe tool. The sharp point of the pick was driv ei^ entirely tJirougb Evan's nose. The msa standing hy interferred and stopped the fight or worse miigbt have happened. Evans was taken to the hospital where bis wound was drosscd by Dr. McKensie. His injury is not regarded as serious though he will likely he someu-hat disfigured. Psetak was arrested by Corporal Askey and released on bonds pending his hearing which is set /or today but may not be hold as Evans may not be able toappear ^lere is NOTHING SWEETER^ mmmm THAN SUGAR TheSwcetest is Knight's of Raymond It is a Western ^ product too-ex-#^* I tracted from the beet grown in the West.
