A government at this tlmei baa a formidable task. It may not do ^s many people wish but if It makes an honest effort to assume the great TaspoQslblUties of gorermnest In this LEGISLATURE'S LABOR MEMBER ON RIC^HT TRACK There has boon a lot of debate In Edmonton oror the resourcos and the returned soldiers, but nothlns Tory' concrete was put forward until iVlf�, Roas, the labor member f^r Calgary, rose to speak. Mr. koss has been a member of the vocational training committee of tho - Military Hospitals Oommissibn for dome time, and in that position he has given a groat deal of atte'tttliin t� tiie ne�d^ of "the-retumod soldiers. Being a .tabor man,'lie has studied thb prbbkm, from the stand-, point of the worker, and we may bo sure that he Ad not put forward his plea for the establishment of a commission to thoroughly inves'tigate and prepare a plan for the dovelopmont of Alberta's natural resources witihout much thought^ He thinks, as most PMple in the^west think, thtit Uie natural resources should belong to the provinces, and the provinces sboubl set to work to find out aie best means of developing these resources industrially, ao that employment may be found tor returned soldiers in fields which will not only help the soldiers to take up^cirU life with aoma ehbw (or auccesa on their return, but will also help the province to bear its burden of taxation by the production of new wealth. His suggestion also of aa inventory of the new public works to,ba undertaken by the province in the next few yeaw, so that labor may be created for the surplus labor supply after demobilization, is also worthy of consideration. Mr. Ross is not a labor agitator. He Is seriously considering the problems of the province from the broad standpoint of the common good, anJ^o should be encouraged lu putting forth his Ideas. He is a real help in the legislature. The resleinatlan ot the Persian oab-IttBt is reported.'I T. J. Burrows, well known Hamilton auctioneer, Is dead. The father of M, A.

No thhi wasnt in Southern Alberta but at Ouelph, OnL So yon see they do have real winds somewhere else. Miss , McAdams wears a military chapeau "almost liecbmlng litUe headpiece'' In die legislature, so a reporter tells us. Speaker Fisher had better make, a ruling or Mrs!. McKlnney, who doesn't'wear a hat, inay feel offend^ Because Praihier Stewart did not carry th� natural resources, back to Alberta, "A. MacKay Is very Indig nant When did: A. G. JlacKlay become convert to Alberta owning Its re-sources?". 'Wnntry at this time it will have th� pympatby and co-operation of the bulk at the people. Should it prove to be � tatlure and uni^le to cope with our kreat probleniis it will then bo time ta ialk-aboat setiing rid of it. ^ Premier Stewart Is a new man on the Job and the people of Alberia thinly enough of him to give him a fair chance.
