Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 25, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta Took Mr. Bulyea for a Frenchman 'Mernld Special Correspondence) Edmonton, July 13.-The Imagination of some of c.'Vir ultra-Protestnnt friends from down ea_t unearth very iwculinr Ideas now and again. The other day Edmonton wns visited by a professional man from on Ontario city. He is a busy man, but prides himself on his general information on live subjects. In politics he seems to have allowed his head to be Jammed with the views of one party.and very narrow views nt that. The reason for this conclusion on our |>art Coal Commission. It wn._ Conceded that if ccrtnin laws wcw passed the percentage of accidents would be very I'groatly reduced. ljeglslfltion> to be introduced by the government will have this very important matter in view. The terrible disasters which hove recently occurred ill the coal nvines of flenimny and France have directed the attention of scientists, es|iec.inlly In the former country, lo Introducing measures of protecting the miners against n recurrence of such calamities, or ut least of diminishing ns far as possible Hie loss of life. One m,'nsuiv contemplated Is the construction of safety chambers shut off from the rest of the ntilne ami protected against explosions. A conduit of compressed air is Intro  Is the fact that this Ontario man. dured into those excavated rooms, while walking along an Edmonton nmI should the conduit lie destroyed, street, had our esteemed lieutenant- {vessels or bottles filled with oxygen, governor pointed out to him, ami In-'stored in those chntivliers, will supply the necessary air. Preparations are already U>ing made for the Intro  tluclion of these arrangements In the mines In the region of the Knur. n very deprecatory tone he remarked: "Another Frenchman! If he hadn't lieen one he would never hove been �given the Job." It was evident this Ontario man was shy of French, for he imagined Hulyen wns n French name. When told thut the governor was of Dutch stock ami a Baptist in religion, the train from down cast was as dumb as an oyster. His Imagination ami bigotry had made a ,, ........, ... ,,.v. ^.v. , fool of him.

The prevention of accidents inminoa teems to bo considered Impossible. This matter frequently came up �during the hearing of evidence by the balance commerce and agriculture through that addition. The cultivation of winter wheat in Southern Albertu has lieen proceeded with cautiously und conservatively. Only a few thousand acres wui'u suv n with winter wheal, largely as an experiment the first your. The acre -age was increased materiul,ly in the following years as success followed the rx]ierinu*nts. Tlie estimate that tho entire winter wheat crop in Alberta will bo 20,000,000 bushels may U> optimistic, but from all accounts will not bo w�lo of the total mark. Alberta winter, wheat has not hitherto boon a material factor in tho wheat sHiiatlon of Western Canada, but this quantity of wheat, approximately 20,0Q0,0t�0 bushels will enter the situation with an utupiestionable influence immediately. Tho in/luoncx� on tlie business situation in the west, in five yours,when it is not unreasonable to Udiovuthut a winter wheat crop of 50.000,000 bushels will lie nuiiketisl from Albertu, will lie gre�utoiit of land in one ivrtificate.

Very few people are aware proUibly that there is an uct to regulate the speed ami alteration of motor vehicles on tliu public highways in existence in this province. One of the provisions is thut every owner of such n vehicle must pay a regHstra -tion fea to the Provincial Secretary. The number of the machine is to Ik; plainly exposed so that "he who runs may read." An alarm bull must be attached to the muchlne und rung at every crossing. Tho vehicle is allowed to run in a city, town or village at a s|�ed limited to ten miles an hour and in tho country to tven-ty miles. The law provides that the owners of motor vehicles must take reasonable caution not to frighten horses und to stop if necessary. The motor owners ran 'bo held responsible for damages if they fail to observe this latter regulation. The Provincial Secretary is empowered to revoke or suspend any license on acci^^, of any misconduct on the part of tin-holder or Infraction of the provis -ions of tho act.

The Alberta government has purchased the telephone system opera -ting in the Crow's Xesl Puss. This was a schrewd move on the part of Hon. Mr. dishing and means that the government trunk line, when It is completed from Macleisl to Coleman, will, at once have a paying exchange nt the mountain end in the tovns of lllairmoiv, Frank and Coleman. It also prevents the Hell Co. from nttompCng to strike these points ns it would not lie worththuir while to extend a long distance line to the Pass to face the competition of the government system already in existenc. Aiuvther thing worth tiwn-tioning und that is that the government is pretty nearly certain to operate all the local exchanges on this branch.

In his ofllce Mr. Show has conduetod himself in a most exemplary tigntier-strictly business from the woiunies. No tax is exacted from municipally conducted electric light concerns. It is only right that these corpor '.ions, who are making a 'big profit u,v out a cent for unything, tho general public will realize without any persuasion that tho law is a retil good one. It proves also that the Provincial govorniiviH is not hand in hand with tlie corpora -lions hut is administering the a Hairs of the province to tlie beat advantage j ment nnd with local enchanges at ev-jerv important centre.
