As we read the history of. any country, we are im- pressed by the responsibility to future generation's that those who had the direction of ils policy in its j stages had to bear. When they haw acted wisely, we their wis- dom bearing fruit long years after- wards. On the other hand, when they have made serious mistakes, pos- terity seldom ceases to feel the ef- fect. When Alberta was sot aside as a province in 1905, it started with practically, a clean sheet. Here was a. territory larger than that of Ger- many and with possibilities which at least are quite equal to those of that old-world empire. On those who were called to preside over the beginnings of its government much depended. Germany has today u population of about sixty million. That of Alberta when it set out on its career as a province was under Was there ever a situation which more strongly called for men of intelligent grasp of the peculiar needs of those whom they were selected to serve, and of the grea.t pi'oblems of nation- building? They have been carrying on their work for between three and 'four years now in course of which time they-have placed on the statute books of .the province an immense amount of constructive legislation, as well as having followed out a general dav conditions came from those who were able to carry on the work of administrative policy which is bound government without being bothered Lethbridge Poultry Show: i Feb. 1009 Prize Schedules FROM F.

It must be .remembered that when the govern- to the record of the provincial gov- ermnent made the remark that it seemed to justify the contention of Professor Goldwin Smith that the hest administration under present- ment took office, a complete organ- ization had to be effected..

From a tliousuiirl directions came culls for expenditure of provincial furulw on projects that vwe calculat- nd to render genuine aervuic. To such appeals the Government has always given u ready car, and much of the remarkable, development that has Korie on in Alberta since it assumed office has been duo to the liberal though discriminating aid that it has thus given, but so well, has it han- dled the funds at its disposal that the province today is not a cent in debt. Other Governments have worked up surpluses by'charging large expendi- tures to "capital account." But all the outlay that has been made in Alberta, excepting that for the'pur- ckase of the Bell telephone system, and the construction of hundreds of miles of Government lines., has been met out of current revenue. To merely mention all the phases of the Government's' administration would take more space than a single article allows. They should all be examined in detail by the person j who wishes to satisfy himself as to the efficiency of those to whom he has intrusted his interests. He should take careful note, for instance, of the liberal provision been made for education, always a pressing need in a. new country. The number, cf school districts lias been doubled, and everything possible has been to give young Alberta a chance to take his place in the ranks of the world's intelligent manhood. On j public works, such as roads, bridges, etc., the amount in. 1907 was almost four times that spent in the last year of territorial administration. That this vast expenditure has been dis- tributed justly all through the pro- vince has been freely admitted by those who have sat to the left of Speaker of the Legislature. In the work of providing inexpen sive and speedy methods of obtaining and in enforcing the law, th< Attorney-General's department has at tracted to itself notice from all over the continent. With so many new citizens entering our borders each year, the effect of all this has been excellent. There is nothing- which does more to make them well satis- fied and even enthusiastic Canadians The prosecution of the lumber com- bine; the taxing of the C.P.R. branch lines, and other features of this de- partment's activity has. helped along this good work in removing .burdens from the backs of those who are en- gaged iu the work of building up our splendid heritage. Agriculture, on which the prosperi- ty of the province rests, has been aided in every possible way. Ex- perts have studied the needs of the farmer, and have shown him the means by he is able to im- prove both the quality and the quan- tity of his output. The most pra'c. tical of help has been given him in. securing better markets for what he has tn sell. All this is merely to indicate a few of the directions in which the Gov- ernment has been active. Its "record is one that will bear the very closest inspection. It has not been spectacu- lar in any respect. Its members hnve been from the .first imbued with the spirit of the people they repre- sent. Life is a serious business in a. new country like this. It is "practi- cal measures that -Albertans want. They do not apply the same tests to. their public men as the people -of some other countries Oratorical fireworks at election time will not satisfy them. What they want to know is whether those who have been looking after the affairs of the province have done anything to make Alberta a better place to live in; have eased any of the burdens which are always incidental to the life of the pioneer, and have -helped them to realize the objects which brought them to this part of the continent to make a home. It is according as these men are made contented and prosperous citizens that the founda-! tion of the province's future great- j ness is laid, and judging it by these standards the Government must sure- ly appeal to any man who studies what it has done as having achieved one of the most striking successes in the political history of this or any other countrv.
