The in the rules %vhich the board of directors has suggested, and which) is now up to the members to approve or disapprove, in effect is this "If -a corner is run, and there is a 'defaulted contract, the president of the Board of 'Trade is to appoint a committee of three members of the board this committee to be approv- ed by the board of directors, and that this committee shall say what the true commercial value -of the commo- in question is on the day of ma- turity of the contract.

Tn fact, there would be so sacrifice a lot of money until such time as it does pay and take the con- sequences. The argument is word for word the same as that used in Cal- gary as late as a couple of years ago. However, though the pressure at times was very great Calgary resist- ed the temptation and is very glad that it did. We have a street rail- way service now-, of our own, and it) 4- is paying very well and the service is very much better than we would be getting from a "concern if privately owned. This matter of a corporation put- ting in a street railway before a city can afford it, may be regarded with suspicion. A private corporation at one time got a franchise from Ed- monton, 'before the city was worth while as a street railway proposition. It went so far as to put up a big deposit and then came in'and mapped out its route. It then put a subdivi- sion on the market, made a big pile out of it, forfeited the deposit and X went on its way rejoicing. That is one instance, and the city believed that it was well protected at that, and as a matter of fact it was very well protected, too. The Albcrtan claims no right to speak for Lethbri'dgc, or Lethbridge people, and has no intention of in- truding upon its affairs, but it is a matter of regret that in a province which has adopted the principle of ownership, a city of the importance HOUSES!

Nov. episcopal ju- bilee of Pope Pius X occurred to- day. Many messages of congratu- lations and well wishes readied the vatican. The pope desired to spend the day quietly and without any formal "celebration. He celebrated mass in the private chapel admitting only his own sisters from Nice with whom he afterwards breakfasted. Lat- er iii the day his holiness received the officials of the Vatican who pre- sented thein greetings. To these the pontiff showed the gold pectorial cross which was given him by Pope Leo in 1884 upon the occasion of his apointment as Bishop of Mantua. In honor of the jubilee many homes in the vicinity of the Vatican were dec- 'orated. The pilgrimage from France ended here today. THE Farm Security Co.
