There are non-English speaking peo- ple who are British subjects but ac- cording to the city council's action they are deprived of employment on civic What fairness is there in such a decision? As a matter of fact every taxpayer, British or alien, should bo treated on the same level as far as civic work is concerned.

The act may not be all that the working- men want hut it would seem to be good policy on their part to fight for it, especially since other inwrests con- demn it and endeavor to have objec- tionable features removed.

Lethbridge wants nothing of the sort. it wants is a commission to control the public iitilities owned by the city.

AFTER ELECTION DENIAL The secret is out at last. The Con- servatives carried British Columbia under false pretences. The telegram used so effectively in the campaign was not sent by -Mr. Borden. He did not say that he fa- vored the absolute exclusion of all Asiatics from British Columbia. His dwnial has just been after "the seed had been sown by the false message, published in B. C. Tory newspapers as the exact words of the .leader. It is not creditable to the Conser- yativii leader that he should have re- mained sflent during the campaign this telegram, appealing to the prejudices of the people of British Columbia, was being used as a means of hoouwinking the electors and se- curing votes, for the Conservative can- didates. A QUIET BUSINESS A little chap whose father is a pro- minent merchant, and, as such, never loses an opportunity to descant upon the virtues of advertising, one day asked his mother: "Hay Lucy and I play at keeping store in the front assented the mother; "but you. must be very, very quiet."

The Hub Cafe The Premier pointed out that the Conservative policy did not include the congested farming districts of the south nor the great territory east of the C. E. both north and south of the main line of the C. P. K. and gave a significant hint that these por- tions of the Province will have rail- ways in the near future. Alberta needs railways today in the settled portions' even more than she needs colonization railways, great as that -need may be. Keierring to the methods by which the Opposition desired to secure railways, i.e. by millions in constructing roads and millions more in operating them, the Premier argued that the any Government, in fact, should hesitate before plunging the Province into a debt of 15 or 20 millions when respon- sible railway corporations are will- ing to plot the Province with lines for a guarantee. He further pointed out that Mr. Robertson as leader of the Alberta Conservative party had gone far ahead of Mr. Borden in a reckless policy of railway extension. The Leader of the Opposition re- gretted the fact that nothing was promised with respect to Government ownership of telegraphs. The Pre- mier pointed out that it would re- quire a loan of by the three Provinces to effect such a scheme, as well as involving grave constitutional questions that might require an amendment to the B. N. A.act by the Canadian House of Com- mons and the Imperial Parliament. Possibly the most important state- ment made by the Premier was that the Government intended to carry out. the recommendations of the Pork Commission which would be laid on the table in a few days. As to hail insurance the Premier gave a hint that- some reform in this respect will be granted this session. He pointed out that, to increase the indemnity at the present rate of "the premiums charged urould make ser- ious inroads upon the general rev- enue of the Province. Already even at the indemnity of per acre the Province had to pay deficits of in 1906; in 1907 and about in 1908. Saskatche- wan had experienced a deficit as great as in this respect. The speeches of the mover and the seconder of the address Messrs. Moore and Kosenroll were above the aver- age and worthy of the occasion. fact stood out clearly in all the talk- ing and crossfiring and that is that jthe members, one and all, are thor- joughly imbued -with a deep spirit of Canadian nationality. Every refer- ence to the prestige and future of Canada was warmly received. Mr. Rosenroll pointed out what hag been noted by everyone who has read the speech from the Throne, viz., that there are many specific measures outlined which, as he stated, is a tribute to the transparent honesty. and candour of the leader of the Government, This remark drew the enthusiastic applause of the House. In fact the House was enlivened in applause at frequent al- ways being led off in genial outbursts by the merry laugh and sonorous, "Hear, of Frank Walker. 4 The members are all in good and bent upon making railway session the greatest of four of the First Legislature of Alberta.
