Abandon Centralization Idea SPECIFIC instances of delays In the registration of docunit-'its sent to the land titles' office st Calgary were quoted in yesterday's issue of-the Herald.

A careful investigation of the de- -lays reported from time io time io nothing if not to the conricfjon :thai another land titles' office ls ntied- for Southern Alberta if the public welfare is ,to be guarded. Conse- quently the only conclusion Is that the Aiberta government must immed- iately abandon its policy of renttsl- "isatlon of land titles' offices, and pro- ce'ed to give more adequate service in regard. The policy of the government is to the province; and io this end they are turning their attention to building railways to open new terri- r tory, and to immigration through a progressive immigration and agricul- tural policy. The hopo of the govern- ment is to have over A -million popula- tion within next few years. a policy being aggros- It means (hat tho is going io fill up rapidly with neW and every new family means .that .more real, estate u-ill no taken up.

As a negative to this Wo have the experience of the PetHe Manufacturing Company Hamilton, Ont., makers of cream arators. Oh these there is no dtitj imposed; 'they are a.1 lowed in free In spite of this, ilie particular con- cern named continues to flouriBli and is; compelled to work day and night to be in a position io meet the orders pouring In. The position the company holds is hest shown by a circular letter- ad- to its agents, which we quote; "There lias never 'been any duty on cream separators earning Into Canada.' The markets have al-' ways beon open to. the-makers'ot1 every cream separator and they nearly all hero. In spite of all this opposition'the easily leads Ihem ali. In 3910 our sales .of 'Magnets' nearly 'doubled' those of IDOfl, and the first !lhree months of 1911 run far ahead of the same months In :1910." If one industry can flourish there is no reason why others should not under like conditions. And if cream why not agricultural im- plements? The only opposing argument that raised.is that this is an isolat- ed instance, and :that, possibly, the excellency of the Canadian-made sei arators defiga competition. And there- in lie's the crtix of the whole contro- versy., free, trade stimulates com- petition, and causes the survival of the fittest. Ail industry which has behind It actiyl'ty and enterprise has nothing Kt fear from the policy, n no doubt-cauHes an extra hustle, but the'cbmpany that shirks this deserves to go under. Protection means-money more easily earned for the special interests fit the expense of .the pur- clmslnV nubile, and there lies the charm to "those who profit by it. T.he case of the Petrie manufactory is a good argument in -favor of free trade. oiie industry can be clone" by oihers possessed of the same'energy, and not afraid to meef outside competition.
