Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta Premier's Address To the Sectors Of Aberta TO THE ALBERTA: Gentlemen: The First Legislative As j Kcmbly of the Province of Alberta has brought its labor to ariose by. the enactment or a mvaiuns w crease in the.numbers of the represen-j tatives of the people. On March .-jna, next it .be your .duty to elect me: members of the enlarged that election tho oyerj which I have the honor to. preside.- tbe-srovernment which you confirmee in office in 1905. asks vou for verdict on 'its work. The-following are n few of the sub- jects to which, the government pledges itself to its best.energies.'Mi is returned to power: The imst. ..session 1. Act. Mccluuiicu Lien Act. Liind Titles Act. Supreme and District Act. Railway Taxation Act. The Coal -Mines Eight Hour Act 7. Workmen's Compensation Act. Railwriy Act: 8. Local Improvement Distr and Village Acts. .10. Lici'uor License Ordinance Arn- your' endments-Act.'- ll. Public Health Act. sub-; 12. Neglected Children's Act. 13. Election Act. Act. There are only the more conspicuous it ems of the body of legislation which thej has'been submitted to the. First Legis iative Assembly by the government. r doubt- Aether any govenxment has produced legislation w startinc point for thi the government. to such of y part of the.province i its industry and public spirit, and the now needing them and to increase those facilities-as the'need-increases. It'iiurposes to- do this in form will injure rapid building of the-roads IN ADMINISTRATION ss in legis- lation, the aim of the .government has efficiency and progress! Its re- cord .pledges it to a continuation of the financial Lhe work. In educational matters it ests of "the province, by c-naranteeintr j-can point to the school areas ability- and integ-j t0 the farmer, lumberman .and the ritv. which merits your further conn-jminer The construction' and repair islutioo, has provided province with a system of rural juntice which inspires confidence in every quarter. Revenues of the province are known vou from tho public ac- counts. The oxpenaitures aiso are you.' The Treasury depart- ment, over which I have tho honor to j preside, has had as its aim accuracy] and simplicity. Expenditure has in-! creased and must increase with thiei growth of the province, but with that growth, too, there has come and will come, increase of.revenue from the Dominion, from texee on corpora- tions, from fees and other sources. The act to supplement the revenues of the crown, the Act Respecting Tax ation of Land for Educational Pur- poses, and the act respecting the tax- ation of corporations have all been in strumental in raising an ever increas- ing revenue without touching the or- dinary citizen. 'The conference, at Ottawa with the Dominion Govern- ment said .the other Provincial Govr ernments on the question of subsidies resulted in a large increase of the Dominion grant. The grant will go on increasing with our population. The money spent, has -in .reality, been invested. What butter eslmerit than education could be found for the so spent Than the roads, bridges, fer- ries and .public huilrUru-s.of ' vince for the which they have accounted And so with the .-rest. THE RAILWAY POLICY, which ,1 have seen, through its first stages in. the session just closed, was the result of serious thought and conviction. It had become apparent that unless the government intervened it might; be many years before railways couid feel themselves- sufficiently strong tp es- sav develop-- rnerit. In the meantime the settlers j already .turning the prairies, ful fields would be hampered- in their work, and it would be impossible-to attract" 'new inhabitants for lands fur- ther from-.the .main line.

WASN'T THUNDERSTRUCK Sir Your repprt at Tuesday night Civic Council the mayor was "not a little thunderstruck" on receiving a peti- tion, addressed to the mayor and ald- "ermen asking them to call a meeting for a certain purpose., and incident- ally to consider one or two civic mat- ters, is quite at variance with fact or logic. The mayor was first' apprised of the existence of the petition on Sunday and was evidently gratified. It made its first appearance at Monday night's meetm and by Tues- day night was too stale to get thun- derstruck over, besides you could-not in a thousand years get Billy thun- derstruck over anything- It is il- logical to assume-that on Sunday he bottled up- his facial expression for ergo, the "thunder" "li's easy to be ready when you'rs cocksure "the other side isn't here."
