ALBERTA AND the Gazette is interested in know- CHEWAN (Winnipeg Free The volume of niisstatcment about the Ayk-sworth Election Bill is sim- ply appalling. Uere is ihe Montreal Gazette which lias a reputation for accuracy saying: "Exactly the same conditions us ex' "1st in British Columbia and Manito "ba exist in Alberta and Saskatche- "wan. The two latter Provinces are "under Liberal administration. The new station, which appears to be. most economical and sensible thing to do, whether .with .or without tha purchasa of the present .Company's equipment. Then ,the first step.should be to make an optional contract for supply of coal from the.Ashcroft mine extending over a term of years, and then locate the new .station immedi- ately alongside the present .pumping The reasons for loca- tion are that by so engines or turbines can bo run condensing and the water treated and kept free from scale forming impurities .thus very largely reducing labor and fuel The electrical capacity of 'items, and giving power with reduc- ed cost. The second reason is that the lino loss on power wi 1 b? saved and the labor pay roll reduced by operat- ing tiie power station and pumping station with the same staff.

Reference must be made to the wel built and intelligently operated pump ing station and water distribution system owned and operated by your City at the present. time. The price paid for power is too high and with a large storage tank enabl ing the pumping to be done continu ously in the daytime and after mid- night, a lower rate should be expected. The City pumping load gives over 30 per cent of all the revenue obtain- ed by the Company for power services, and were it not for this contract the station could not be run in the day time at all except at a heavy loss. We note that the contract provides that the Company shall pump water including the furnishing of men and repairs in the .pumping.station, pos- sibly there may be some ancillary bearing on this point. With City's the electric and water can .be. gradually re- duced, and, very soon a. properly man- aged central station should be able to secure the .custom of all .power users in the City owing to cheapening effect of. opera ting wholesale, and a1 so because the separate steam .power plants must now suffer from hard wa- ter .and scaled boilers, .whereas, the central station if located at the river side, will operate .condensing, ef- fecting great economy in operation and reduced boiler depreciation, and repairs. We would recommend that, the stor- age tank, water meters, and if the City can afford it, the second pres- ure main be installed at once, and that the generating station, etc., be designed and tenders called for as soon as the City policy has been de- cided on, leaving the actual construc- tion of these latter works until next season. We bog to subscribe; ourselves, "officials arc.presumably favorable to "the cause of Liberalism, and their "work is good enough for the Laur- "ier government." The Gazette when it penned this statement plainly 'knew nothing of the conditions in Alberta and Saskatchewan and was too lazy It therefore' hazarded a proved to be entirely to find out. guess which wrong. If the Gazette will consult the Do- minion Elections Act, which is Chap- ter G of the Revised Statutes of Ca- nada, it will find that .sections 42 to 65, which deal entirely with the Pro- vinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta and Yukon Territory, authorize the making of Dominion lists immediately before a Dominion election. These provisions, substantially in their pre- sent form, have been in the Act from the time it was first passed in 1898. ing why the Dominion tpok this pow- er to itself ten years ago it will find uii explanation in Mr. speech, in. moving the second reading of the Bill in 1898, when he said that, as the Territories had no mun- icipal institutions and therefore iro municipal lists, it would be necessary for the Dominion to make its own lists. The statement is of great im- portance at the present juncture, be- cause it shows that, at the time of the Dominion Elections Act was pass- ed, the Dominion government assum- ed that only municipally made list.s would come under its operation. The Gazette, which appears to In: very much in need of infonr-ntion, may be interested in learning that in the Provinces of Alberta and chewan there are not and iiiv-jr h ive been voters' lists.

It is customary throughout the Bri- tish Empire for every jjjjan to stand with head uncovered whilst "God Save the King" is being played j which custom docs not appear to be generally recognized in Lethbridge. Might we suggest, if the Nationa Vnthcm cannot be treated with due respect, that it had better not be played at all. "Sons of the Sea." Lethbridge, 1st June, 3.908.
