TO OWN TELEPHONES Alberta Government Eager to Protect People's Interests. Edmonton, Feb. 1-1.-What is probably tho most Important declaration )over made by any western provincial government was made by tho minister of public works In tho Alberta houso this Afternoon when he statwt the government's policy on tho tole-phono (juestlon. Briefly, tiro government Is hot only going to go inU> tlw long distance business on a huge scale but It Is going to supply all cities, towns, rural municipalities, and local improvement districts that want thorn with telephones gt the TALK AB0UT_ MORMONS Hon. Frank Oliver Replies to an Attack Upon Them. Ottawa, Feb. 14.- Hon. Frank Oliver takes direct issue with Rev. Prof. Kllpntrick, Knox College, Toronto, and with Rev. Dr. Somorvlllo, general agent of 1ho� Presbyterian ohurrh in Canada, in their attitude towards Mormon immigration Into AllK-rta. At a mooting In Moor St. Presbyterian church, Toronto, Mr, Kllixitrlck said: "The greatest grief in Alberta Is Mormon sottlomont. These poople are Mormons first knd Canadians afterwards. It is not enough to say that tlvey grow good lowest posslblo price, tho province crops, but do they grow good Cana-undcrtaklng the Installation. o|�ra - 'dians?" When in need of a HEATING OR COOK STOVE Call and act Our Stock and you arc sure of being eatiafied lion and maintenance of tho whole system all over U� province. The minister did not state any figures, but private members announced tonight their belief that Alberta could supply farmers with phones at $10 to $12 a year and give long distance connection for little mora than the cost of a postage stamp. Tho minister's speech which was brought out in reply to a question by F. K. Walker as to what the '.government's policy was on the telephone question, was absolutely un-oquivoc&ting. Ho said in part: "1 have looked at this matter awl every mcmlicr of tiro government has viewed It in the same light, that the introduction of the principle of 'public ownership was tho most important step yet taken. "Tho administration, believing it to bo lit the tost interests of tho people of Alberta, Is prepared totako a stand for this principle." In turning to tho Dell telephone, ho said that It ,was well known that, it was a monopoly. Tho stock was ladly watered. Various commissions had boon appointed to 'investigate, but so far nothing had been accom -pli&hcd. The province, he said, was Rogers - Cunningham Lumber Co., Ltd. HicK (EL Wahely The Leading Tinners, Plumbers, Steam and Hot Water Fitters. Telephone 116. Dr. Somcrville said: "Tho Mormon Invasion Is a sin to bo laid at the dangerous clement in Canadian Ufa, andnow hero and I hi? 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 uuotcd arc creditable to the understanding of the gent lemon who made them, and 1 hope thoy are not a fair measure of tho Christian spirit of the church in which they ara lo some oxtpnt loaders. Dr. Kll -Patrick Is reported to havo said, 'the greatest grief in Alberta was Mormon Sottlement.' I have lived many years in Alberta and this is the first time 1 have heard that Mormon settlements were a cause of grief. Tho region now. occupied by Mormons was unoccupied until they come and, so far as we can see, it would havo remained unoccupied for an interminable period had it not been for tbrir knowlcdgo of ^Liko conditions in the U'MU'J States and ot means by which these' conditions Could , be overcome or their disad -vantages minimized. They have given nn object lesson in agriculture in tho southwestern corner of the invaded by this monopoly under a'prairies of Canada which has incroas-chartcr grunted by a Conservative |od tho value of tho whole semi-arid lucceeaora to George Rogera�sNte� Builders' Supplies of Every Description Wholesale and Retail �w9aeecai�>j toers of their own or other churches.

VROOMAN ^ by a government at Ottawa, the most iniquitous piece of legislation ever practiced on any people claiming freedom, tho most extraordinary charter in /act ovor granted by any parliament. Only recently tho government at Ottawa appointed a commission to enjuirc into tho trouble at Toronto and was politely informed that the company docs not intend to bo governed by the findings of the commission. The Albarta government, ho said, believes that if K has any functions at all it is to protect the people from such monopolies. The opinion j dissent from the religious views of a of thn government Is that the only certain body of people to try byway to regulate such a monopoly Is misrepresentation to discredit them to enter Into competition and ensure!as citizens or by the same mdsropre-low rates anil proper service. jsentatlon arouse religious prejudice "Wo desire," ho said, "to create , tj bo turned to account in party means by which tho farmer will secure the business advantages, that will result from tho introduction of a system of municipal telephones throughout Alberta.
