Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 25, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta Took Mr. Bulyea for a Frenchman ^�?eralcl Special Correspondence) Eilnwntoii, July 13.-The imagination of some cur ultra-Protestnnt friends from down east unearth very Ijcculiar ideas now and again. The other day E}dinonton was visited by a professional man front an Ontario city. He is a busy man, but prides himsslf on his general information on live subjects. In politics ho seems to have allowed his head to be jammed with the vievs of one party,and very narrow views at that. The reason for this conclusion on our [lort ! is the fact that this Ontario man. while walking along an Edmonton street, had our esteenietl lieutenant-goxemor pointed out to liim. and in-B very deprecatory tone he remarked: "Another Frenchman! If he hadn't lieen one he would never have been �igiven the job." It was evident this Outario man was shy of French, for he imagined Biilyea was a Fi"ench name. When told that the governor wias of Dutch stock and a Baptist . in religion, the man fromj down east was as dumb as an oyster. His imagination and bigotry had made a fool of himi. And'-lsn't a great, deal of the i)ol'Hical fecstling created by imaigination? Wc imagine Hon. Mr. So and So is doing a certain thing to plea-so So and So, or is hand in �glove with such ami such a corporation, and so on. Coal Commission, It waB the rest of the nunc nn^l protected against e-xplosions. A conduit of compressed air is intro -'duced into these excavated rounM, ami should the conduit lie destroyed, ves.iels or bottles filial with oxygen, storetl in chanvlwrs, will supply the necessary air. Preparations are alwndy t�ing nvaeet sugar producers-confined wholly to those raising beets in the Stirling, Ray -niond and Magrath districts-was $23,366.50, being a haif cent per pound on the sugar manufactured. The l:/oet sugar prc.ilueeil by the l>ig factory at Raymond last year ani-oimted to 4,673,300 pounds. The farmers received from the sugar i;om-pany five dollars per ton for their lieets. One (of tho judges at the Edmonton fair was E. N. liarker of Cardston, He is a pioneer of the southern part cf the province, and I qliestion whether there is a better informed man on all subjects in Alberta. H�> i-at^ks as one of the dealers |n the Allierta Farmers' assocla'tion| He is no* a very extensive former himself, but he has long \yecn a student of agri -cultural problems and writes a good deal for the pre^s about matters affecting the farmers. He is an authority on a host of subjects, but, hest of ail, he is using his greatfund of knowledge to aOvnncrf. tho best interest^ Qf .the province and its people, and the time bugiit not, to be far distant wihen he will to serving the country in a larger and more useful way. Just to ^how the di -. verso nature of Barker's knowledge. . I would mention that the publishers, of that .high class encyclopedioi '''Americana" sought out Mr. Barker to contribute the article on the domes -tic cat, and one only needs to read that article to,be iHipresaed with the hufe amount of information, Mr. liarker has at his beck and calV f7�itB �nd dogs ara hobbies o( this : collage bred English gentleman, who , has residex'�rs gone by a huge grant of prairie lond, that was today worth millions of dollars to this corporation, and that they wiere holding at a large figure. So the Attorney General had a new Laml Titles Act prepared and amongst its many good provis -ions is one that compels these big Ijond holding corporations to pay for the rogistra'tion of the titles of the land they have sacurod by grantfrcm the Crown. This particular provis -ion says that a fee of five dollars is to be charged for a certificate cf title for crown land issmnl to any railroad corporation, the Hxidson's Bay Co. and any private indivi'dual who has received a grant of land, not a homestead .sp ct.r -porations registering a Wg patent of land in one certificate. The corporation pays $5 for the title on the first .section in each patent of crown land and two dollars for each re -mnining section. For in.stum^e take tho cose tf a grant of 10,000 acres of crown land to the CP. H. a f�e of $5 wouhli lie paid to register tlie first 640 acres ami $2 foj' each reinraining section. As a resutt of the imposi -tion cl this tax 'the acklitional revenue, it is antiieipateing policy of the goNoiiiiiieiit. - i m Enforcement of Lord's Day Act (.SiieciiU ('otf('S[i( mienoe of Herald.) Only tivo or three years ago winter ^vheat was sown in Southern Alberta a region unsuitable in many essential^ for spring wheat cultivation, a� an experinscnt.

The annual winter wheat yield of Ontario is only 20,000.000 bushels and will probably not increase in accordance with the agricultural ten -' denciea of that prc'^''i|lce.- WinnipvK Telegram. Very few people ore aware probably that there is an act to regulate the speed ami operation of motor vehicles on the public highways in existence in 'this province. One of the provisions is that every owner of such a vehicle must pay a regpstra -tion tee to tte Proviocial Secretary. The number of the machine is to l)p plainly exposed so that '|he who runs may read."

It will 1MB iviiK'iii'l-I'liod that the enforcement of the Act was loft in thehands of the At'torni'\' (Jeneral in each pi-o-vince. Mr. I'ros.'; was intervii�wed by oflicials of the Iwnsl'.s IXiy act and asked if he wouU' carry out the purpose of the act.
