"Very lew cf the large private cor- porations piish the rural side 6f 'the telephone, :U least that has been the "'case wilh the Bell Telephone up until recent years at any -rate. The Alberta government in its conduct of thp tele- phono system has kept rural phones in the forefront. Considering the age cf tlit province, tho, population nnd the length of time thp telephones have1 "'been under the control of the govern- ment, it Is safe tp say that there are- 'rural phone lines Alberta than in any province of the Dominion or any slate of the union; To new settlers, from the United States es- pecially, the progressive character of the tei-auhaiie policy in'AlbCTla, Is appreciated. They come to n new land to settle and find tbat they have here the 'conveniences that were not to fe had in their former homes, iri Elates much older ;and more settled.
