There is, it is stated, a great reluct- ance on the part of some of the Min- isters to tako such a long step as a full guarantee of tuo bonds even for one particular district cr even 16 ad- vance the full sum of the par value of the bonds to any district upon the security of the bonds. On tho settling of the irrigation Question once for all favorably, the people of Southern Alberta look to the present session of the Legislature, Even though it has been unofficially mentioned, there has been some ex- pectation thrown out that this very important question of irrigation, so vital to thig part of the Province, will be satisfactorily solved. Anything which may tend to causa delay in gettlPK tha. Lethbridge Northern pro- jwt, which is the most advanced of au. the projects, to materialize will be in the way of dashing the cup from the will be viewed vritb ex- treme disappointment in Southern Alberta. It is to be sincerely hoped that the Ministers will compose their differ- ences, and that at last there will be a practical policy evolved and passed on this session whereby the irrigation policy of the Government will be fully established. The question of ir- rigation in all its bearings should by now be fully understood by every member of the Government in its re- lation to this part, of the Province. It cannot be suffered to fall between the stools of ministerial differences. Every Minister should by now have sensed what the policy of irrigation as it concerns this part of tbe Pro- vince means. It would be intolerable to believe that the project stands to be shelved by anything of dissension in the Cabinet. We sincerely trust that there is mo anticipation of jt and that when the time arrives there will be a just and equitable policy framed, with a due consideration to the. interests of Southern Alberta. It cannot for one moment be believed thai the aspirations of the people here will be denied. ALBERTA FARMERS AND THE INCOME TAX It is a fact which calls for consider- able notice that, In the matter of the income tas collected up to the end of February, in the aggregate, thR farm- ers of Alberta lead the way. This is all ths more remarkable in that the sum collected greatly exceeds that of the old and settled Province of On- tario. In spite of all the vicissitudes of farming in Alberta, as compared with the industry in Ontario, tha farmers of the youngest province in the Dominion have paid to the na- tional treasury the fine sum of 218.39, as against the sum of 75 in Ontario. When compared wUh tho returns of other provinces, Al- berta again holds a conspicuous posi- tion in the way of income tax paid. The figures published at least tend curtailment in proilm-tion, has been fairly general In during tho last, fovv months. Reports from throughout tlio Dominion go to show ttmt practically every nuiiiuCudiiriiiK city or town lias its n goodly numbers, also I some from other points in close prox- imity, and two well-filled lecture cars of local people, two of the best meet- cent.

The table is at -least interesting in show- ing that' in a country such as the Baited States, whdfs a Protective tariff is in force, the percentage of unemployment is greater than In Free Trada Britain, DIVORCE IN THE DOMINION There are about one hundred and fifty applications to the Parliament of Canada for the passing of divorce bills. Most of these are from the Pro- vince, of Ontario, a few from the Pro- vince of Quebec. In drawing attention to this the Journal of Commerce points out that in Ontario and Que- bec, tliere being no divorce courts, application must be made to the Par- liament of Canada in every case for feeling today. So keenly atten- tive were the people and so appreci- ative were the government speakers that it was 5.30 before the good-byes were said and the big train pulled out. That Medicine Hat Farm In his address here H. A. Craig, deputy minister of agriculture, took occasion to explain why the Alberta government demonstration farm at Medicine Hat wag abandoned. 'The government has been criticized by some because of this. Mr. Craig said that the farm was underlaid with sand, which unfitted it for intensive agriculture. Some good crops had been raised, but on the whole the siugfors, says the Copenhagen corres- pondent of the Kchange Telegraph to- day. The revolutionaries have made Kronstadt the centre of their organ- ization, the correspondent asserts. "The rebels have trained the guns of the warship Petroparlosk on Petro- the correspondent continues, "and have sent the ice-breaker Jermak to Oranienbaum, on the gult of Fin- land opposite Kronstadt. The soviet authorities have suspended the Petro- grad-Oranienbaum rail service. "The revolutionary forces sent delegates to Petrograd, but it is not certain whether to negotiate with the soviet officials or to confer with fel- low revolutionists, "Moscow reports say that the Bol- shevik overthrew the rebels there with tho mose sanguinary losses." Another Garrison -Revolts The garrison of Krasnoya Gorko, near Petrograd, has rallied to the anti-Bolshevik cause, according to a wireless message given out today by the French foreign office. The town of Pskov, near the Es thonian border, is reported to have been captured by Insurgents. Commissaries Kalinin and Zinovieff and several of the other Bolshevik commissaries at Petrograd are report- ed to have taken flight and to haVe been arrested at Isborg, according to the wireless dispatch. Maxim LUvinoff, chief of soviet legations abroad, is said by the same dispatch to have embarked in a Bol- shevik vessel off Reval after drawing an important sura from the bank there.

Hundreds of barrels settled; first, that the material of the subjects in the school'curriculum was inadequate; second, that the right of divorce court. It is utterly impossible for those bodies in the midst of their legislative duties to exercise the functions of a divorce court with in- telligence or with propriety. If the Senate made a real inquiry into these 150 divorce cases now before it, it would have no time for anything else. Since divorces are granted, and still to be granted, surely it is better to have the disagreeable business turned over to the courts of justice than to be left to the present ridiculous sys- 'e In the other provinces of Canada with the exception of Prince Edward Island there are divorce courts. Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and British Columbia have had such courts since before Confederation.

Over far- mers and future farmers had been reached. A closer contact had been established between the men on the land and the government officials. In meeting the farmers and discussing with them their problems in a frank, plain, honest way the department was only doing its duty. Good Work of C. P. R. "I can not give too much praise to the C. P.

In the face of such results as the income tax returns testify to, it can- not be denied that.the farmers ot Al- need und deserve every en- couragement in, an industry which has proven itself to be an asset to the Btate. When we see, as we have done, the western farmer being cavilled at in certain newspapers of Eastern Can- ada, the income tax returns in their comparative relations should serve to point out how wrong and unjust the opinion held is. To tho West the prosperity of tho farmer spells a great deal, and it would appear that it also hai its coresponding bearing on the Dominion as a whole. In the showing made by the farmer of Alberta, by western farmers generally, the value of farming as, a basic industry is placed beyond argument. UNEMPLOYMENT IN CANADA Jndaetrla] unemployment, says the monthly letter of the Royal Bank of Canada, which has followed closely in the wake of the drop in prices and are now held to be empowered to grant divorces and are doing so.
