STRENGTH HAS MEANT EFFICIENCY. (Cultrary Jlews.) When tune came tor grunting autonomy to the Northwest IVmtor- ies, the question was very widely and seriously discussed whether 'party, Government should be applied to the' new provinces. That- the system has very decided disadvantages as well as advantages, all who have made democratic institutions a study will be free to udmit. It is not neces- sary to go into the question of what decided the turn that events took in Albert, and Saskatchewan. The his- parties put candidates iu the field iu the two provinces, but in j Alberta the final 'result was to oblit- erate for rU practietl purposes, the ordinary during the term f the firs1. islature. But two Conservatives w re elected, and they were both men little accustomed -io public liiV so little adapted by their training ju t.i.Mer fields for as- suming the responsibilities that cir- cumstances had thrown upon them, that during the. past four years Al- berta has been to. all intents and pur- poses without political warfare so far AS her provincial politics went.

His eyes never left the sidewalk that ran past his own home, but a short distance from the Drive. They stared without blinking across the dark border through the circle of light from the arc lamp and far into tbe shadows of .blackness j beyond. It was very dark where he stood. The lake had battered through the sea wall for many rods at this par-! ticular point, and no-one ventured out j beyond the bridle path for fear of i slipping down into the cavities that! had been washed out by the waves.

The leader of the Opposition .time admitted that his con- stituency .had been treated quite as fairly as any other in the expendi- ture of public funds, and that the Ministers gave careful attention to his requests. single supporter in the Legislature also stated that his constituents had no ground for .complaint.-.

In the neighboring Province of British Col- umbia they had an extended experi- ence of this stale of affairs, and so closely did they approach political- anarchy that all were glad eventual- ly to see a party administration re- stored. All in all, Alberta may consider it- self, very lucky that the fortunes of war in 1905 "brought abcut the poli- tical situation.that has existed dur- ing the past four years, and it is not likely, with such excellent oppor- tunities of judging of the results, that it will show any desire in 1909 to have a different one created. -It- is not such an easy matter to get a first-class Government that particu- larly at this stage of our growth, we can afford "to throw out or even" weaken one that-has clearlv demon-, strated its efficiency. gist power of true love would adjust the affair of Jane and Graydoa Bansemer.
