Mr. Melghen has been asked to do ;that but refused on tho ground that he was not going to dictate a policy :io. more especially since Al le'rta has taken the stand lhat It would not guarantee the bonds. Had Mr.- Melghen told Alberta that the' money was'available on certain terms, terras that Alberta had'not been pre- pared to adopl at the last session "ol the Legislature, there are those who would have Immediately charged that t he "was trying to bedevil the Al 'berla Government. We have seen the- correspondence that passed between the Premier ot Alberta and Minister of (hi Interior. The Alberta proposition'was. not accepted because ll did not as tume full financial responsibility. The reply however .did npl slam the' door In Alberta's face. do not hesitate to say thai if Premier Stewart 'will go to Ottawa and situation freely and frankly-with the new Premier and the new Minister of soiu tio'n can be Reached :fbr financing' the Le'thbridge1 district. -It is only by a round liib.le.-Conference tha .an be" reached .telegrams and letters "won't achieve results.

These are inci- deals which might very well occur. la the old rule there was no excuse offered for the Impetuous motor Iriver, in thai he had to staud by the signal of the starting ot the street car. The street car in Ihis respect fulfilled the uses of ISe uplitlc'd arm of Ihe policeman at crossings in b'lg whereby all traffic is suspend, ed until the signal to move on is given by Ihb lowering of Ihe constable's rm. The only extenuation of the amend- ment to the by-law which appears is that It will .save motorisls lime In case Ihe street car Is inclined to linger ipo.long. But where, it may well be asked, .is the need ot the hurry which will save a minute or two in a city such as Lethbrldge.
