He was by general admission the best chairman the com- had since its creation, and it will ue difficult, almost impossible, to obtain as capable a man to fill th.e vacancy. Trained in the law, possessing the, legal and judicial mind, James Pitt f Mabee cast all the atmosphere jot the courts to one side and dealt problems coming before him with the object in view of serving- ths public Interest. The humblest citiyen of the i country could go before the commis- siou and present his caie and secure justice. It was not necessarv to en- gage counsel, in.

He wanted the (acts, and when be got them he rendered hit decision, and his decisions were invariably fair and in the public interest.

In Alberta In the past year It has been the, aim of critics of the gov- eminent, to becloud the eyes of the electors to'tbe splendid work being 1 done by raising other cries and np- pealing to the huso and unworthy in public life. The government has not only fought to bring the latest ideas to the u-nbarked on a scries of detnonstra- lion farms which bid fair to prove of immense.asBiilance in the' solution of the many problems confronting the v tiller of the soil In a new country. Some criticism has been levelled at pad with buildlngH beyond the means o( the average farmer. The Herald sure.the'farmers do uot take stock in such'puerile talk as 'no where in Jhe world are Institutions of the bind equipped on the same basis as the m- tiividwal" farm.- Tbe main idea (i of these farms Is to experiment In small plots and bring the farmers to see the beat methods In cultivation and also the most successful way in wtfich to ruiie and handle stock. Tn fact the hope Is entertained that they will accomplish much in the way of'-en coumging the farmer to go in'for diviersified and ;thus obviate many of the troubles experienced now by depending grain. It Jrapossible to place a farm each constituency.for the prfeient, 'but' they have been located as'-to" serve large districts without calling on the farmer to trav- el too great distances, atwt when in full operation it is the intention; ot (he government to have excursions run at cheap rates and during (he Visits to-the farm lectures given anil practical demonstrations made of different phases of the work; The -farms %ere only bought last summer BO that too first attempt at cultivation ig being made thin year. Yet in spite of that fact leading critics of "the government have been going up and down the province tell- ing the farmers thai the. farms "are diurnal failure because they haven't produced the revenue sufficient to pay This unfair talk Is but a iiample.ot the general line of ,ctlt- these arp, idem, and Herald fetlg vure tht could sell, air contrary This i-3 the self-evident fact that puts the kibosh on the protectionist theory, as it carries with it the evi- dence that Canada would sell thouelhings which she could produce cheaper than other countries, and would buy those things which other countries' could produce cheaper than Canada. Un-ier such a system the special privilege extended to certain industries "by protection to, sell at an artificial price would dis- appear. Those Industries which -have a right to flourish would flourish, and those Indus tries which are parasitical industries would dier jt is the knowledge that their in- dustries are parasitical industries tha't leads the beneficiarlee of protection to contribute to the campaign fund of the political party which will'espoiife their cause.
