His department has done much already lo warrant the sympathy of the agricultural community.

This is evident in the prosecution of the lumber combine. The entire work of tho crown Is in the hnnds of the Deputy Attorney General of the province and all he gets for his services is his salary. In cases of this kind in other provinces counsel not connected with the department are engaged and consequently big bills of costs are run up. Mr. Cross believes in utilizing the services of the salaried officials of the depart mcnt and the vigorous and ablo way in which his deputy, Mr. Woods, is handling the case shows that tho province is getting the very best of service-fully as good if uot better than it would have if it engaged counsol as is the custom in otlier pro vinccs. Think of it: In Toronto, whoro there are two registry offices, it has lieen possible for one of the registrars to reap on income yearly of $S>,000. Not so in Alberta. Hero snlurl are paid ami the fee system is not known. The salaries, are little over half for the entire province of what is1 paid one registrar in Toronto. Now if the Alberto government wanted to.huve a few fat Jobs to offer supporters it would have retained the feo system but it doos not work along thut line. Instead it aims lo give tho people a good service, unci employ people to direct thot sorvice on a business basis. It pays its officials what they are worth and not a cent moro. Tho people of Alberta jdiould keep this in mind. The government's long distance telephone system is now in working order from I^icomlie to Stottler, with the following nit's from Lncomlie out: Lacombe lo t'higv�dl, 10c: Valley fity.

The Cnnnilinn Courier says: The most Itenignunl and far-iwaching enterprise that hiis lxvn born out of the provinces of Western Cannda is the university recently foundei' in Al-l)erta. It is lo be ho|md that Saskatchewan's promise to follow this ex ample, will be promptly filled. The atmosphere of North America from the Isthmus to the Arctic Ocean is as different from that of Kurope as is Kurope's unlike Asia's. There is a free henrtedness about our institutions that stimulates great achievements and anchors the hope of democracy. In Mexico it is the commonweal Hi institutions thut are most potent. - In the b'nited StntCB it is tho State universities that ara fast assuming Iho educational burden of the country. Vale, Harvard ami Col umbiti are corporation colleges found etl on the principles of Oxford and tho ^sturdy Knglish Schools. But those universities thivt have hud the most remarkable growth are the M-ale institutions such as tho Univer si ties of Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesotu, Iowa, Kansas and California. They rest upon tho people of their respective States, and tho sMf-imposcd tux of a commonwealth will nevor fail. mcT. The Prime Minister has made nn occasional trip west, since he became Premier but he has not toured the country since his memorable trip prior to the general elections of 18-UU. Ills trip next year will be a triumphal march. The people of the west are euger for the opportunity to display their loyalty and udmira-tion for the chieftain. The thousands of new settlers want to s�-e and hear this great and gifted man about whom they hove heard so much. Only the other day the Morn ing Post, one of the great Knglish journals, hud this to say of Camilla's Premier: "No statesman could have accomplished as much in the short space of a lifetime ns the great French Canadian, who combined Originative eloquence unsurpassed in llrillsh history with the charm and courtesy of tho cultivated French man.

One of the regulations in connection with the construction of the Grand Trunk Pacific is that liqjior shall not l'c sold within a certain numlior of miles of thu railroad during its construction. This was necessary its it is in Manitoba and Ontario there is nothing in the law to prevent a hotel, with a license to sell liquor, being established nt every construction camp. In Alberta the situation is totally different ns the license law absolutely prohibits a liceftSe being ! granted in a pluce with less than forty dwelling houses. As will bo readt'v understood none of tho construction camps nor even the new towns along the lines in Alberta will be able to conform w,th this regulation in our license laws and consequently there will not lie tiny lioens-mI liquor premises on tho Of T.

A. fgehanan, who enmc from l.elhbridge early in the year to organize the legislative library, has completed his task and will return to the Southern CKy and cstanlish n daily edition of his paper, Tho _ Herald. During his connection with the librury Mr. Duchanan has added i some exceedingly valuable works on j the history, from earliest times, of | Western Canada as well as many-books of reference that will lie of greut service to tho memlicrs of the legislature. However his most important work has been in organizing the library. A visit this summer to libraries in the east enabled him to gather information at first hand ab- Alhcrto will derive a revenue of at leaal 800,000 from tho tax on the C. P.
