In December 191G a scheme was by Great Urltaln {or the niobllliation of foreign investment holdings of the Hrltish to be used for stabilising American ex- change. The result was that York-London exchange was main- tained at practically a uniform rate of 14.71! until March 21, 1P19, when the control was removed. "When the York ex- change rates broke, Montreal-New York rates followed suit.

With all that a fair reached mi per cent., and in August was about 12 per cent. "Thus the prices of all commodities which Canadians buy in the United States are raised, and the return for those' sold here is correspondingly increased, to the extent of the prem- ium on New York exchange at the timo of purchase or sale. In the end, though, it largely harks back to the dislocation of the London-New York exchange.

Those who so worthily interested; tiemselves in bringing the idea of the fair before the public sh'ould per- severe in their efforts to make it materialize. This can only be done by arousing the necessary interest in the city and iu the district. Tho Dlan for holding a fair in the city this year should not be left entirely to a few men, but there should be a general co-operation. Lcthbridge has to be something more in name than the centre large farming district. It is very ne cessary to link the city and the country in a of interest, and in this the holding of a city fair will be of material benefit.

There is THI FUTURE OF THE GOVERNMENT RAILWAYS The press despatches, that the Gov- ernment railways are to be handed back to their original owners, are de- Died at Ottawa. There is, it is said, no foundation for the rumors. It can hardly be realised that the Govern ment has considered such a plan without the principle of government ownership being thoroughly tried out In connection with the new railroads acquired, which in their nature five themselves to be paying lines in be- ing linked to already existing ones. In the circumstance it is not to be surprised that the report is denied. There Is a prejudice amongst cer- tain to tovernment-pwned railways. This can only be overcome by effici- ent management on the part of tha Government proving their success. This opportunity the Government Bow There is us rfcason why the practice of government-owned. Southern Alberta is Irrigation. Those way lines in Canada should not meet with the seme success as the policy has gained in New Zealand. The principle of government own- ership of a public utility, such as the railway, so making it the people's railway, is a good one. H a'll depends how it is carried out in the working. What is possible in a privately-owned railway, as the C. P. B., should be possible with a government-owned line, with all the C. N. R. in it.

An explanation of causes which have led to this depreciation is given In "The Domiuion of Can. a study by the Bankers Trnst Company, of New York. "Prior to the says the study, "and until March 1918, the difference between the high and low rates of Canadian-United States exchange was usually not more than one per cent. above and below par. When Canada was exporting her crops the balance of exchange was in her favor and drafts on New York were at a dis- count that is, the exchange was against New York. "On tho other hand, In the spring and summer, when Canada had large payments fo mako on balance in the United States, drafts on New York were at a premium because they had to be covered by remittances in fold or what amounted 'to the same thing.

But the question will be, should there be women senators, how many women would care to be con- signed to an old-age chamber. The bye-election at Hereford. with a win for the Government candi- date, points not so much to the con- fidence placed in Mr. Lloyd George as to the want of confidence in Mr. Asquith, the Opposition Leader. In the Irish qusstlon and the many problems of tha day, the elec- tors have shown that they con- tent to let George do it, i time except such places of business as may named in the act. Old Age Pensions The executive was Instructed to draft and present to the Trades Con- (raw of Canada an old axe pension scheme for its consideration and pre- sentation to the Dominion govern- ment. Immigration It was resolved that the federal fovarnment be jmportuned to adopt a more selective immlgatlon -policy In order that some machinery may be devised to encourage immlgra tion of those who possess the capa- city for assimilation and whose stan- I dard of living will not tend to lower 'the present standard of living. A resolution was adopted calling on the Trades and Labor Congress of Canada to instantly keep informed all labor departments and organized labor of foreign countries the accurate labor conditions prevailing in this country. It was resolved that whereas the civic unions of the province have formed a provincial federation the executive of the federation give every assistance to the civic employers in their desire for greater solidarity of their organizations. Wtekly Half Holiday Here The executive was by resolution in- structed to continue Its efforts to se- cure amendments to the charters of Medicine Hat and Lethbridsp that will provide a weekly half Holiday for the workers in those cities. Liquor Referendum Urged A warm time was anticipated re- garding the liquor situation but noth- ing of a startling nature took place. The original resolution provided that efforts be made by the executive for the government to make necessary changes of the liquor act to provide for government control of beer and light wines, A substitute by the com mlttee on resolutions was adopted without debate 16 the effect that the duestion of beer and light wines be submitted to people by a referen- efcim vote, act was placed on the statutes of this province by ref- erendum, a method of legislating which we hare always endorsed.

Changes In Tax System Hon. C. R. Mitchell, In his dual of fices of municipal and health minis ters, will have a number of a: ments to existing acts. Among these will be a change in tin1 tax recovery act providing that municipalities' ma> take possession of lands sold for tax arrears without first paying up tho school taxes. The recent request ot the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts that the Public Utility Commission and the Subdivided Properties Commission be not allowed to withdraw lands from tax sales, after they have once been listed, is favored by the govern- ment and is likely to be carried. Under the taxing laws, a change is proposed in the limit of taxation, which is now one per cent, ot the assessed value, or ten cents per aero where the levy is made on a flat rate. The maximum rata in each case is to be doubled. Supplementary rev- enue taxes, it is also proposed, will in future be compromised in cases of subdivision arrears. They have here- tofore not been included. New Marriage Act Nearly all the health laws will lave some amendments suggested, but in most cases they will be con- cerned only with details of adminis- tration. The registered nurses' act will be changed to provide for ths qualification ot nurses by the univers- ity senate, which will prescribe courses of study and conduct exami- nations instead of the hospitals, as at present. Extensions of the public health nurses' service throughout the prov- ince are contemplated by the depart- ment, but no now legislation will be required. The marriage act will require the publication of as a condition to every marriage. It will also he required that in every case a mar- riage license be taken out, the law now calling for either a license or the publishing of the 'banns, but not ne- cessarily both, Railways and Telephones Premier Stewart's own of railways and telephones will not be as much in the limelight as In the last session. As; minister of that de- partment, Mr. Stewart will .have a statement to make to the legislature on the action taken during the year in regard to the McArthur roads, but since that action has met with gen- eral approval and the prospects for future co-operation with the Canadian Pacific are considered very satisfaC' lory, there is not likely to be any seri- ous questioning at. the government's Institutional Church Annual Town Coun- cil Is Sworn In (From Our Own Correspondent.)

This sum will be required for rural ex- tensions and trunk line and exchange Improvements iu various parts of the province. Minimum Wage Board Attorney General Boyle will spon- sor the now jury act and the mini- mum wage act. The latter will pro- vide for, the creation of a minimum board which -will function on a permanent basis, with supervision of wages and hours of working for 'emale workers in all Hues of indus- try. The act will' not set a standard wage but will give the board power I to deal with each industry separately. The factory act will amended to remove retail shops from its applica- tion and to leave them Instead to tho municipal and civic bodies. Mr. Boyle's chief request for money will be for a larger appropriation for the provincial police service. He wants to make provision for more de- active work, in connection particular- ly with the enforcement of the liquor aws. The department of agriculture will have practically no legislation to forward this year, it is stated, even the widening of the domestic animals act being under the depart- ment of municipal affairs in this par- Icular case. Hon. Duncan Marshall will have some items in the estimates, lowever. and especially an increased appropriation for agricultural schools. The three new schools will call for additional outlay this year. Prom the department of education there will be a request for a total of probably This will bo about a halt-million in excess of the 1920 vote, the increase being Ear- marked, mainly for larger grants to local school districts, which in turn will pay larger salaries to their tea- chers.
