May Take Over Trust Co^ Business --= (Special to the Herald) Edmonton, Mar, 26.-The govern-*jent has under contemplation the question ot taking over the trust cora-pauy business In Albt'rta as a government organization -was the annouBce-ment Hon. C. R. Mitchell made Ineaday morning at the consideratian by the private bills committee of the r.ct to incorporate the United Farmers ot Alberta. The organlratlon is geekinjs powers to act as executor and administrator and it was while this aecUon was being discussed that the mii^ster gave tho intimation of the intentions of the government. The measure with some slight Changes in form was ordered reported for third reading. The provincial treasurer said that tlie government,^ had been thinklne over the tmst company situation for some time but had not been able to prepare legislation for the present session. It was intended to investigate the trust companies doing business in the province, jhe work they were doing, its eiJent and .whether or not the work was being done satisfactorily. He would not, however, promise that a bill w*ould be brought in, but the investigation would be made with a view to enabling the government to determine its policy in regard to these concerns. , More Stringent But whether the government goes into the trust business or not," said Mr. Mitchell, "the act will be made very much more stringent than at present. Legislation was being sought this session ^vith reference to obtaining additional returns, and the right ot inspection. A long discussion as to the assets the U. F. A. would put up as surety in connection with the hew position of e.xpcutor or administrator. H. W. Wood, president ot the organization, said that what tliey were asking was simply an enabling, act to give the I V. P. A. power to do this, under cer-tiun coiitlitious.. When they knew they had the authority there were a i^ood many .-.vays to raise funds for security. They would got some penuanent way of keeping up personal security. They were putting on a campaign for 1 life membership. They believed they ' would be able to get IS.OOO lite members and that money would bo invested permanently. They had thought of what the object of tlie organization was to get a human sympatlietic touch between the beneficiiirie.s and the administrator, ; and they did not want to stand in the relation of a financial corporation to the people. .\fter Mr. Woods' explanation the section was agreed giving the U. F. A. power "To accept, and execute the offices and duties ot executors and administrators with and subject to all such rights", and powers and liabilities as are provided by the tmst companies . ordinance.
