In boxvi, JjSc. A great deal of inii^ro.'it l.s being manifested In Alhertn'^^ new hall insurance soliomo, nmnirlpal and iigjlo-ukural bodies along with i)ul>lic n'en have been Intcrestod in thlu Western country for a great many years trying to devise sonin Kibeme of a mutual nature among tlic. people directly concerned that woiibl protect tbeiu from a totuV loss in lasu of hail and at the same time siMniie such protection at a minimum rcwt, along with a guarantee that wouhl seniro them in case of lo.s.s. Varloiis companies of course havn their .^^.icmes. Municipal bodle.s liavc tried ki ileal with it In many ways and evi>ii provincial legislative bodies have bud their experiences along similar lines. A glance at the sUi'tutes of tbls Western country reveal statutes that liave been amended and eventually vpealed. but with the event of the Htm. Wilfrid Gariepy becoming Minister of .Municipal Affairs for the Province of .Alberta a renewed interest was taken in the entire question. Ho ba.s ."ibown a disposition to co-operate wlUi the .Municipal and Agricultural btjdlo-; and particularly with municipal districts directly concerned and,'it almost every session of tlie beglslatnro he has brought the question before lliiit body In one form or another endeavoring to arrive at some plan thai would provide protoctioh against total loss at a minimum cost. In the early days by various schemes they were able to .secure a minimum rate of premium, but the guarantee wa.s usually poor In case of loss. Other schemes placed a mljfimum rate or premium which in many cases N^as thought to be exorbitant. This placed tho whole question In the field of controver.?y and experiment, people who werji^ balled out from time tO; time were keenly interested in securing protection at a minimum cost witli a public guarantee that losses would bo made good. Rut they were approsed in their efforts by those who for the time being wer not hit by hail. Tlie former {stood for public control whiJo.;ihe latter generally .stood against it. The whole question could not be set aside and it pressed itself into prominence at every Important gathering of farmers, municipal or U.F.A^ Those who believed in public control differed as to whether it should be municipal or provincial or both. A glance at our statutes reveal that many changes have taken place in the attitude of the public from a legislative standpoint. The event of tho Hon. Wilfrid Garle-py becoming minister of municipal affairs in tlie Province of Alberta in the fall ol lOiH proved of valuable assistance to those farmers interested in securing legislation which would combine the idea of a maximum prAnium with a guarantee that losses would be made good in accordance with %in-tract. At almost every session of the legislation the Hon. Wilfrid Garlepy has piloted the House Legislation tor the benefit of the farmers interested In hail insurance. In the 101,"> session of the Alberta Legislature he brought before the House an act respecting municipal co-operativ8 h,?.ll insurance. in the 1910 session he brought before tho an act to ammend the municipal Cooperative Hall Insurance Act, widening the powers of tho board. In litj i he came to the rescue of tho board and placed before the House an act providing for tho guarantee of certain borrowings of the Hail Insurance Board of Alberta to the extent of two hundred and sixty two thousand dollars. Tho Hon. Wilfrid Garlepy has in his keen interest in the transformation stages of whole hall Insurance scl^emo shown an evor ready disposition to co-operate with farmers, the Hall Insurance Board, the United Farmers- and Municipal Unlon^and any parson or persons who couTd make any suggestions that wouUKhelp to evolve a hail insurance scheme that wo||ld be of mutual benefit to all concerned and tlianks to his efforts he was able to lay before the 1918, session of (ho Alberta Legislature a bill called the .Municipal Hall Insurance Act which Is to be submitted at tho municijill annual elections to be held on February 27th, 1919, in that territory described as follows; Tho act applies south of a lino described as follows;  Commencing at a point whore the North Saskalj.iQwan River cro.ssos tho Fourth Meridian, thence westerly along the said river to a point where it. meeits tho range line between ranges 20 and 21, west ot the Fourth Meridian; thence westerly along tho north boundary of Township 56 to the range lino between ranges 21 and 22, west of Jlie Fourth Meridian; thence northerly to the north boundary of Township 50, thence westerly along the north boundary of Township 50 to .the" range line between ranges (i and 7, west of the Fifth Meridian; thonco south along the said range lino" to itho,North Saskatchewan lllvor; and thence along the said river to the wostarn boundary of tho province.
