As each season goes by there "is a fulling off in public interest in these functions. Last great crowd gathered in Mackay street school to witness the closing ceremonies. The members themselves were so impres- sed with it that they actually hud a flashlight photograph taken. This year about one-third of the seats were empty. Conspicuously so was the bench of the leader of the Opposition who, flew his kite last Friday after holding up the House for week, but hot before he begged his, sessional indemnity. The Lieutenant Governor was es- corted by 12 troopers and a trumpeter. He was attended by his aide de camp, Capt. Worsley, and his secretary, Mr. G. H. Babitt. Before entering the chamber the aide-de-camp announced --His ;whole- .assemblage mer sesions, that the members were quiring the bon hoinie of accomplish- ed parliamentarians. They are more familiar; with the rules of the assemb- y, and expedite the public business with greater .celerity. The opposition has often attempted to force the fight- ing and have more than on one oc- casion asserted their presence and held 'the house to the rules. The utstanding occasion was last Thurs- day. In fact the hpuse'1 was prorogu- ed a. week later than anticipated a couple of weeks ago. Everything was ready for the Vice-Regal assent a week. ago, but the leader of the oppos- ition objected to the first and second readings of the bills respecting the statute law amendments on the same clay. He stood firmly by rules 40 and 42 giving as his reason that lie want- ed time to study, the bill and moved the adjournment until Monday of this week. In this action .the. leader of the opposition was quite within 'his rights, and many of the members of the house admired his pluck in hang ing up the bill. "He's getting onto his job" were the frequent remarks in tiic corridors. But all the prestige the opposition leader, won and was calculated to win by sticking to his fc liW lak.41U.UVL LUti JJUUliU. 1J Banie and meeting the house and de- respect the ,aw of hvenng hia. criticisms against the ly approxiinates the law of England that, did not meet his aproval wh5ch is peculiarly strict in this rcg. .va.s lorit by hid untimely flight to the pect south.

Immediately the clerk of the House read the var- ious bills that had passed the several stages of the House, to which His Honor assented in silence. The clerk turning to the members again per- formed the last act in making the forty bills of thu session the statute law of Alberta by pronouncing thc formula, "In His. Majesty's name, doth His Honor the Lieutenant Gov- assent to these The Speaker then performed an act which is an anomoly in our Parlia- mentary custom, but carries the im- agination back to the absolutism of the Angevin and Norman kings of England. He presented a request to the King's representative for the sup- ply for the coming year. Few saw the irony of the legislature asking the Crown for the right to spend its own money. It is outward show and attachment to ancient forms coupled with a true democratic spirit that is the strength and glory of the British constitution and its transcrip in every colony under thc flag. His Honor of course, graciously as- sented to let the legislature spend its own money for one year. Next year they will ask him again and he. will just as graciously give his as- sent. The Lieutenant Governor then read a congratulatory message thanking the members for their diligence and devotion to publin duty and absolved them from attendance until called at his pleasure next year. As soon as the vice-regal party left the chamber a fusilade of papers blue books, and waste paper baskets filled the air and with laughter, and boyish pranks the session passed into history. A Notable Session The session which cprncd 'on Jan uary 16th, lasted 7 weeks. For the on an actual basis as is done in life first time the legislature met in a building that could be called ils own. During the progress of the session it A wise provision of the bill renders it inapplicable to farm work. In passing the compensation act and the eight hour law the govern- ment were largely guided by the evi- dence taken by the coal commission. In framing the measure the govern- ment had all the available data and have fairly succeeded in evolving a measure that protects the miner from the rapacity or negligence of the and at the same time en- ffrces ace and competency upon the miner by Emitting none but skill- ed men to The drainage one that was needed in this province and as stated in His Honor's message it will great- ly facilitate the opening" of the coun- in making it possible to build roads through districts 'that were swampy and impassable heretofore. An arrangement has been made with the department of thc interior where- by all Dominion lands reclaimed through drainage come into the pos- session of the province. President Fletcher of the A. F. A. speaking at a meeting of the farmers at Clover Bar a month ago declared that Drainage Act was one of the greatest needs of the province. Now that need has been met. Forty Acts Passed Forty acta were passed during the sesion that has-just closed. In 1907 there were 49 and in 1906 76 acts were passed making a grand total of 165 acta of Parliament for the province in three years. The Imperial debtors act of 1369 was repealed by this session, this act imprisonment' for debt was legalized in the NorthAVest Territor- ies. Another act directly in the pub- lic interest is an act to provide se- curity by public officers. By the new act of 1908 it is practically impossible for an officer in a position of public trust, where.the expenditure and col- lection of public money are concern- ed to defraud the public. In this House are generally the committees on miscellaneous and private bills and municipal law. The latter com- mittee were actually badgered past the limits' of patience this session. Almost every town and city in the province were repn-sented before this committee seeking some amend- ments to their charters. One member of the committee.after a long sitting of the committee exclaimed in des- peration that he expected the next request would be thc right of the cit- izens to gibbet the obnoxious mem- bers of the council board. If such a request was ever made he would willingly support it. Gcntral Municipal Act The upshot of the vast number of rcqu'ests respecting .amendments to city charters is that ;i general muni- cipal act will be prepared by the gov- ernment and submitted to the Legis- lature next session. To the visitor in the galleries of the Legislature the sessions of the Legislature seem sometimes too tame an affair. There is nothing the reg- gular or casual visitor to the House enjoys more than a heated debate, especially when government member takes issue with a government meas- ure. There has been little of the pyrotechnics of debate this session. The difference, between the support; ers of the government and the mem- bers of the executive generally Cushing's act respecting tele- ldegraphs hag an im_ the {lllurft Q{ settled in caucus. This organization or feature of the party system is one that never comes into the minds of By i the public when making their judg- vas ment.s. Consequently when a meas- ure, passes through the various stages of the House without violent or even moderate opposition the spectators rom the galleries make up their ninds the government has "buffalo- their-supporters and is carrying things through with a high hand. A peep behind thu scenes in caucus would often reveal a minister at bay or hors de combat before the mem- jers of the party forming the majori- ty in Parliament. It is an open se- cret that the changes that were in- corporated imo the compensation act whereby the act does not apply to form of iarrn labor was the cause of long earnest consultation and de- bate in the Liberal caucus. ....w..
