Considering the reputa- tion that the mineral wealth of the emit province has, the comparison is an exceedtngiv favorable one as It re- flects on Alberta. If there has been any inclination on the part of some to lose faith in the future ol Alberta, the statistics pro- duced by the Provincial Treasurer will to far to drive away pessimism and to strengthen optimism. With proper development there is a great future held forth is the baby province of the Dominion, and what been already achieved gives the certain earnest of possibilities of which we in this generation can hard- ly realize. It has to be remembered that tha wealth ot Alberta which has to far been brought to light has been produced under circumstances which can hardly be callad favorable. With the coming into being of development .policies such as irrigation and means for extending our coal markets, there ia much to make even those who are Inclined to be despondent sanguine in retard to the future. to future prosperity of the Do- alnlon Alberta is bound to play a very Important part. hare assets here which we do not .realize, and when we have official statistics ot the natnre disclosed by the Provincial Treasurer it leads to the process of rubbing our eyes to come to the knowledge that they are realities and not fancies. The information given out in the Budget cannot hut ba grati- fying. It Implants confidence and en- courages hope, if only each one will do his sharo to help .in bringing -the Province more speedily than It would otherwise do to that state of prosperi- ty to which its assets will lend them- We have In the Province a rich heritage, which, if properly used and carefully administered, will make It more than a Land of Promise. This is something worth knowing through the facts which have brought that knowledge. been from borrowings. In January and February tho tax collections only amounted to and unly the sum J16.000 was held to a ilnlH-nture debt payment due this month. The moral of Transcona Ii that it becomes an obligation ou all taxpay- ers to pay in their taxes, and further to take an interest in and do their share as part ot a civic duty to keep tho city in which thoy live and arc interested in on an even financial keel. In this respect there should be co-operation between tho city hall and tho ratepayers ot the city. The CHI- zens of I.cthbridfe have to congratu- late themselves that financially the city is not as some others are, but cannot be always guaranteed unless the obligation ot meeting tax payments Is fully recognized, coupled with that lively interest among citi- zens which mskcs for good city gov- ernment.

To tho investing citizens of Lethbridgo there is an appeal in this apart from the sentimental view. To invest ia the securities of one's home city shows "a faith and a confidence In it, and be- tokens, particularly in these days, a much to'be desired public confidence, which means a very great deal. The investment in home securities of the nature of the City- of "bridge bonds is a good thing In itself] outside the business aspect of the; 'matter, in that it creates that well needed interest in one's own civic i affairs. In this respect alone the in- vestment commends itself. A spur to the encouragement of wise handling of civic affairs by those with whom for the time being the re- sponsibility is placed Is the live inter- est of citizens. When we from time to 'time road of experiences which take place in other municipalities we are reminded that there is much to be gained In interest taken and attention given to civic affairs .especially in the way of voting on money by-laws, in which, unhappily, there is much apathy shown by the ratepayers at large. It waa only on Saturday that we read of what has befallen (lie town of Transcona, in which it has been found necessary to ask the Government of Manitoba to r.ppolnt an administra- tor. There Is this significant fact that the total outstanding taxes were 400, and to carry the town through to Ue end of the year, the snm of waa needed. The whole financing tf the town, even to the paying of the salaries, appears to hare West Indies to the States by Great Britain in cancellation of or set-otf against the British debt to that coun- try. This proposal has not been received with enthusiasm in England, says the Chicago Tribune. "National pride." it coniinues, "always opposes giving up territory and we must make allow- ance for this natural sentiment. Per- haps it is so strong, at this time that Int precludes hope- that any British government would dart to make the deal in spite of the common sense which supports It and the substantial benefits which Great Britain would derive from it. "But It the proposal Is impractica- ble at thta time it does not follow that it always will be. was a time during the war when the ex- change would have been possible, and at some future time circumstances will favor It. even though it may not seein acceptable to the British popu- lar mtnd at this moment. "The benefits both to Great Britain and" the United States derivable from this transfer are, In our opinion, so substantial and far reaching that the proposal is certain eventually to win. Tho sooner the .better for both coun- tries." When one reads views such as those eipratsed by the Chicago paper, the thought that cannot but come uppermost to the mind is the callous bargaining Involved which gives consideration to the people of the West Indies. It implies that they are to be regarded as so many goods and chattels to be passed from ons owner- snip to another. This is the'day of democracy and of democratic princi- ples. The very country to which the Chicago Tribune and the Senators who wish to auction off the people of the West Indies belong want into the war "to make democracy safe." Fur- ther the principle of the self-deter- mination of nations Is a principle which the world war has established. Apart from the feasibility or the prac- ticability of the scheme proposed, the first and the foremost action neces- sary is to enquire whether the people of the West Indies desire any such change ot flag as has been proposed for them by the Senators and advo- cated by the Chicago paper. They are at least entitled to an expression of with or without the original. 2. The Latin translation of the Bible, which has the official authority ot the Roman Catholic Church. 3.
