Eligible Voters for 1909 We are informed and believe our information is correct, that the total number of persons eligible to vote in the 1909 Provincial election in the city of Calgary is Why This Offer is Made This extraordinary offer is made because of our desire to compile mailing list of all .the homes without instruments in Western Canada. We believe we. can secure the information desired more quickly and more economically .than we could by spending twice the sum by using solicitors aaJdjatnvassers. "V TljeTairnessof this offer at once appeals to the public from the fact that the Mason Risen product has been-sold for years exclusively upon uniform or fixed price plan, all instruments being marked in plain figures, which are conclusive as to price.

Wholesale Liquor Merchant D A WARM GATHERING to organisation- and the adoption of, Marcellus in a feeling reply addressed vai-ious plans the above officers were j tho rnetting: at some length on thay the interest on any of its bonds means a failure to pay the interest on any of its bonds and if. Alberta were called upon at any time to im- plement its guarantee so also at the same time would Ontario and would he Dominion of Canada and would the province of Saskatchewan and ;hc provim-p nf be called unon to .implement their .several guar nntces upon the bonds issued in con- nection with the lines of railway as o which those several guarantees have -riven. So that if such a ,hing could be conceived that either, one of these transcontinental compan cs failed to the interest on the londs that are guaranteed bv the pro vince of Alberta there would follow a icjuidatimi or winding up of the whole company from end to end in' Canada and f. re-organization of the railwav of the Dominion, a re-onran- >phicih in view of the financial stake which the people of have in these railway systems by rca-' on of the riven thvough FetJeral and provincial legislation 1 province As to the other lines the control exercised over tbe rales by the Dominion -Railway Commission is a -sufficient safeguard that exces- sive rates will not be charged. HOW IT WORKS Cont-Kterincr the method of pruaran- these railway bonds and the disposal of the purchase money of the bonds the system outlined in the Alberta Government Acts shortly is as bond issue as to any one line of railway, treating each Dne guaranteed as 0 separate line for this purpose, is guaranteed by the govern- ment upon an agreement being nuide vrith the company embodying terms as to the class of construction mid other details ami upon a mortgage being executed by the company to a trustee approved of by the govern- ment upon the line and all the assets of the railway company in connection with the line. The bonds are then .sold in the markets of the world and the purchase money is paid by the purchaser direct into a bank approv- ed of by the government, to the credit of The Provincial Treasurer of tihe pro vince of Alberta, The money so plat ed in the bank and the balance that remain from time to time are covered l-.y the mortgage. The railway com- pany then proceed to constract the line of railroad in connection with j "such certificate (ciftl Treasuicr in8tiwi fro the money to his crudit .namely, from the of the bond issue, to the company '-for 1 he. amount so certified bj; -ijov" crmneiit eiijriricer to bo construction already done, that is to sjiy. for the value of the work done in proportion to the w.heb, io be done, upon1 that The batohces to "the cnKiit Treasurer in the bank in. 1 crest at such rate as is ixrranjjed be- tween thu company and tho bank and the interest is added'to the amount in the bank '.from ..time "to time. Thus it will be seen that both the bond holders and the government ther the security of the purchase, mo- ney of the" bonds or the completed '-at any tiiiae under the mort- Tho T-esuit of these; legislative provisions will be that, in connection with the lines of railway (ruarantoed by'the province and deposited in the banks of the province to the credit of the. Provincial Treasurer an ahiouut exceed ins twenty-seven m illion dol-: lars of foroi-jn capital and it assuriied that as soon as; the nioney is deposited in the bank or any por- tion of it in connection with any one line of railway that the railway com- pany will proceed struct-that line, because' they'will bo losuijr the difference between the rate of interest .paid by .the bank.on. the deposit and the interest they are call ed upon to-pay to their '-bond-holders the money or any portion of it is lyine -idle, a. difference of about one cent. When millions are being dealt in corporations do their iit- most %o one cent; The sys- tem above outlined" ;jiuarantees the province complete security in connec- tion xvith .the issue of -the bonds as well as the speedy construction, of the lines of railway.
