T. S. McKenzie had charge of tho devotional part of the meeting. Otto Meier, an old employee of Edmonton, Jun. 11.-Considerable satisfaction is being expressed here by those who favor tho government ownership of telephoncu and they constitute tho majority of the citizens of tho capital, in tho recent purchase of tho Ball Telephone system in the Province of Manitoba. The monopoly will hardly engage in a struggle with the government over the control of tlic telephones in this province now that its most powerful arm has been cut off by the Manitoba bargain. It looks now as if the road for government ownership is clear and that Western Canada will furnish the arena for the first and untrummcllcd operation of such a widely ramifying public utility in all its phases. Nothing is known here as to the in tention of the Alberta government re specting its policy or relations to wards the .purchase of tho Bell system existing in this province, but it is learned on the best authority that Mr, Cushing will not let the present opportunity slip without mak ing overtures to the Bell Co. for the purchase of their system.. The present is regarded as an' opportune moment to open negotiations The government have first pursued the wise policy of showing the Bell Company they were in earnest in establishing a provincial telephone system. A number of trunk linos and exchanges at strategic points have been secured so that the government is on > position of equality with the private Icompany in opening negotiations. There is considerable feeling that lias been voiced in the press of both political parties about placing the honor of initiating the policy of provincial telephones in Western Canada? Was it the Rutherford or the lloblin government? The public will regard this as a very secondary phase of the problem. Possibly the question, like the one who brought about confederation, wil, never be settled. Like the. confederation query, the telephone question was mainly settled, and the policy of both governments the outcome of a strong public sentiment in favor of public control of our utilities. The municlitalities of the1 west have gone a long way in the direction of public ownership and control, and it: was expected that sooner or later these ideas would be reflected in provincial legislation. This can be said at least of the Ru therlord administration, that H was from its inception as a government in Alberta strongly -in favor of its political doctrine. The first session ot the Alberta legislature saw an act Passed empowering municipalities to establish telephones and to borrow money for this purpose. Further, A BIG CAR.

Danielson, who has been a well known figure in the community for several years, was committed by Magistrate Holmes on three separate chnrges of obtaining money by false pretences. The first was from the Bank of Commerce at Claresholm, the second from the same bank at Nanton, and the third at the Union Bank at High River. It api>ears that in April last Danielson appeared at the Bank of Commerce, Nanton, gave a statement of his affairs showing a surplus of some 830,000 and on tho strength of that statement obtained various advances aKtfregating about SI,000, which, needless to say, he still owes. At that tinie he was also indebted to liabilities which he claimed were limited to some $300 owing on a land deal, and succeeded in getting into the good graces of that institution to the extent of about $1700. The Bank of Hamilton at Nanton suffered to the extent, of some $900. He .has various other liabilities, which include the price of a rubber tired buggy and fur-lined coat, which brings the total considerably over $10,000, while his assets consist of about a dozen horses and a homestead so far as we have been able to learn. The extent of his depredations had not been brought to light until Monday of this week when Mr. Cornwall came to High River for tho purpose of endeavoring to obtain security for Danielson's indebtedness in the High River branch of tho same ' that branch. On arriving here he bank, 'but this did not appear from his statement. On duly 2nd, Danielson called on Mr. Cornwalf of the Claresholm branch of tho Commerce, gave a similar statement, stated that he lived only soma twenty miles from Claresholm, but failed to give any informa tion of his liability to the Nanton branch and various other banks. By this time he had managed to work tho Northern at High River and also the Bank of Hamilton at Nanton. He secured Irom time to time some 1200 at Claresholm. By similar tactics ho secured some $800 from tlie Cileichen branch of tho Bank of Commerce. In the meantime he did considerable business in a small way with the Northern Bank, whom ho had mulcted to the extent of some $800. Quite recently lie presented a similar statement to the Union Hank, wan .'.examined minutely by the manager as to learned that the bird had flown. A warrant was immediately issued and the Lethbridge police communicated with by wire. Danielson was arrested in Lethbridge and brought back here on Tuesday morning. Tho foregoing facts were elicited nt the preliminary hearing before Magistrate Holmes yesterday. At the hearing Mr. Balluchey of High River prosecuted on behalf of the Bank of Commerce and the Union Bank, while C. f\ Harris, of Lethbridge, appeared for the defence. The accused is now en'joying the contemplation of his wealth in the police barracks at Calgary. When arrested he had over $1,000 in bills on his person and wo learn that n, scrap is now pending over tho custody of this�money. The accused claims Hint it should remain at his disposal, while the Bank of Commerce'has a feeling that morally at least they are entitled to a share of it. existence of the Bell system, which had developed to considerable proportions, complicated the situation for the government. Which may explain on a very reasonable ground why the Manitoba government were doterred from making a more definite declaration of their policy from time to timo. Tbey were evidently waiting for the grand coup do etat of Inst week. They did not wait in vain. The price paid was not too low by any means, but the government has succeeded in eliminating the opposition and competition of a powerful corporation and obtaining a free hand. The spirit of tho west is indeed for public ownership to the hilt. The same spirit Is more strongly reflected in the utterances,of public men every day. When the newspapers of the West were threatened and attempted to be gagged by the C. P. R. Telegraph Company. Mr. Cushing speaking at .Vermillion stated that unless justice and independence could be obtained, it might become necessary to establish Provincial telegraph lines.

Piche & Miron Telephone No. 1 MMil HOME MISSION SUNDAY (From Monday'* Daily.) Yesterday was Home Mission Sunday in the Baptist Church. Rev. 0. C. McLaurin, superintendent of missions in Alberta, preached morning and evening to good congregations. The preacher narrated some interesting facts regarding Baptist missions in Western Canada. The First Baptist church in Winnipeg was' organized 35 yen is ago with seven members. Now there arc 140 churches in the West with 125 organized pastors. There is a college in Brandon with property valued at about $150,-00.00 and another college at Summer-land, B. C. One interesting feature of. the Baptist mission work spoken of by Mr. McLnurin, was the work carried on among the non-English speaking people. According to his authority, the linptists have more missionaries than all tho other denominations in tho West put together. There are churches organized among the Germans, Scandinavians, Russians, Galicians and Hungarians. In speaking more particularly about Alberta, Mr. McLaurin said that 8 years ago the Mision Hoard discussed the advisability of withdrawing from Calgary. Now them urc four churches with four ordained ministers (and throe mission halls in that city. Last year on one Sunday an offering of $3,000 was made lor missions by the congregation of tho First Baptist church of which Rev. V. W. Patterson ia pastor. At the close of yesterday's services offerings- for the work were made which will amount when all is paid to about $100.00.
