Tho meeting wns designated by many fine addresses io support of tho prlnciplo of public ownership ami control of public utilities and franchises. But at a meeting of 'theoratical reformers there Is sure to arise some enigma or paradox. The paradox in this case was tho statement of the organizer of tho society, Mv. U. C. Owens, of Inde especially in the west, done by tho Laurier government since it has assumed office; in view of the splendid service rendered to the Empire by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, especially in tariff, postal, and military matters, iu his influence with his co-patriots at Quebec, and in view also of the vast [ expansion of business, of revenue, of expenditure, tho past ten years, breaking up oil fixed procedure arid unsettling the safeguards which prevail at normal periods, the Advocate believes the Dominion government has given a service to, the Dominion, which ought) not to be overlooked by these. The wine women, and graft charges are being measurably straigh tened out, and, so long as men like pen**T, in denunciation of the tel-jFosU!r' Powlor' ct al arC d"*** �*> ephone policy of tho government of,TP^!}0?yj^SLOTT}T^*y Alberta. Mr. Owens is reported to havo denounced the government of Alberta for spending money on telephones instead of public roads. How such n statement can be made by such an advanced Socialist is unconceivable. Socialism, that is rational Socialism, aims at the widest application of the it does not lie with such as they to throw stonos at tho Treasury benches Let the opposition clear its' own skirts firsit, before attacking the government.

It has saved the province from the yoke of the Beil monopoly before it was placed on the necks of the people Tho organizer of the Society of E-Q-U-I-T-Y should be one of the first to commend the first government in Canada that had the courage to estab-ligh a telephone system for the peo-plo and by the people- Though it was never the policy of the Alberta Government to build our telephones out of current revenue, the strained condition of the money market during lt/07, the initial stages of which were manifest at the time the legislature was in session, rendered it inadvisable to negotiate a loan or float the bon'ls necessary for such an undertaking. Consequently this years operations will be met from current revenue, aud it is a matter of sincere congratulation that though this has been that not one branch of the public service has been starved. On the contrary the expenditure on roads and bridges is far in excess of last year, and iu the item of roads the amount expended will be nearly double that originally intended dur. ing 1907. This was done by the government with tlie avowed intention of giving tho farmers and laborers of the province a chance to supplement their earnings during a short year. The real intention of the government with respect to their telephone system is Lu borrow money, and charge the expenditure lo capital account. situation of Canada by the publication of half-truths, and distorted statements. The most deceitful of tho manoeuvres to which these economist's report is lo insinuate thut there is an absolute and essential con nection between the condition of our foreign trade and the financial situation, that the unsound basis of the former is the' cause of the stringency of money. Nothing could l>o more false, but backed up by the old prejudices about "balance �f trade" and other bogeys, the assertion of rather the vague insinuation finds credence in more than one mind. The present condition of our foreign trade is admittedly this-after ten years of unprecedented progress the returns for the current year (eight months clap- IDEAL IIUSDANDS AND WIVES It may be truthfully said that less than one-fourth oi tho' women who marry know' what they are doing. They lmvo no idea of what their dutit'9 are, much less Uicir rights. About all they knew is that they are getting married. ' Is there any wonder 'that so many are disappointed and wish themselves1 out of if? It is perfectly right that a woman should have an ideal husband, but moro important that she should have a distinct notion of what constitutes an ideal wife. There's where the trouble lies'. They all want ideal husbands, but never seem to think that men want ideal wives. Men imagine that a wife will make them happy and women think that all they need to put an end to their troubles is to secure a husband, ilow sadly both are disappointed. The wifo who expects her husband to make her happy is foredoomed to disappointment; so is tho man who experts tho same from his wife. We make our own happiness, and in so doing we make others happy. Whenever young women begin trying to fit themselves for wives then a new social era will dawn. There will be more happy homes, less poverty, fewer' divorces, and a better moral atmosphere. There is a greatt deal of room for men to improve in the same lino. Comparatively few have definite ideas in regard to the home life they expect to live. If they do picture such a thing, they follow the outlines traced by some sentimental novelist. It is an impossible sort of a place, in which he Nectar takes the that makes all social life desirable, and lets his reason and Judgment bo led off by every will-o'-the-wisp that lurks nt every morass and slough to load, weak men to destruction? Should we need to fear if we do our noblo duty? Let us place our ambitions high to make men loyal and true. ADVICE 3,500 YEARS OLD One of tho oldest' books in cxlst-ance is a book of proverbs by IHahb-ot*>p, an Egyptian, who lived somewhere about the time of Abraham. Among his injunctions is the following, which we commend to the writers on women's emancipation, domestic economy, and other popular topics, who may thirik that the subjects they discuss are fresh and suggested by the increased intelligence of modern civilization: "If thou be wise, furnish thy house well; woo thy wife and do not quarrel with her; nourish her, deck her out, for fine dress is her greatest delight. Tur-pose to make her glud as long' as thou livest. She is a blessing which her possessor should treat ns becomes his own standing. He not unkind to hen.'' This counsel is none the less useful to her at the present day,, because 3,500 years have elapsed since it was given.

On the other done hand our exports will probably show a slight decrease over the high figures of 190(1. In other words "the balance of trade" is against us, and that spells ruin in the eyes of the calamity howlers. If these gentlemen were sincere, they w'ould easily ascertain that there is nothing alarming, or even I di;t one . There is but one rule of strict morality that a man can adopt.
