^ir'�-i'^'a�eopla> by f*-tablishing government roiincs, so thoit the people who are .n the west wiil be a.^urcd that life in tho winter months will always be worth livSuir. I'nless something of this nature is done tha west is going to 'jc ^von n black eye. People are not going to settle hero, when there is a possibility that coal can not be had in ihi-months of vinler. THE POUa FOR ALBERTA. .sane buslncs.s man nJici the Herald is prepared to support his policy as we t.vlieve he :.a anxious to help the people and promote the interests of Alberta, lie is giving to Albcrtasound practical and business like service I and ."SO when he announces that -.he government of this province contem-plntes onning and oiwratiiig rail -wa.vs and coal H�ines and controling life ami fire insurance companies, we lx?lieve it hns his endorsation a.s n man who has inado u succos.s of his own business, and wouUI not rooo.'ii-niend anything for the province, except a policy that would help to '!-velop -t ami make it the banner province of tho DoniJinion. At a meeting in tho (Hoicbon bye-elot'tion Mr. Cusbing said that he had come to tho conclusion that the province should own tho railways within the boundaries of the prov -ince. One road had askc'll, .Tnd build tho road tliouv-se^hvs. The province was full of co�l, aiwl \vt tlie people were suffering from a coul famine on account of insulliciont rtU-way faciiit.es. He voultl liko to s"c the govemnK>nt own its own coul field, and build railwa.vs 'to thoin. Tile government was considoringtho.se things. Another thins' was fii-o in.'iur-ance and Kie insurance. Ilo haaland system could be wtll adopted. Alberta can keep out of the i^r'p of corporations ty falling in line with Mr. Cushing's suggestions. We can avoid the curses that tho lUni ed States are fighting today-the trusts and the corporations controlling' nil forms of governn>?nt. I^t u^ try it. Hon. \\. H. Cushing is on theritht track. He has evidently been studv-Ing conditions in New ,Zealand and i.s conying to the conclusion tjjrftt Al -l>erta would te better off if she followed the policy that has been so successful in the British Isle in th(> Southern Seas. Mr. CusMng is a EDITORIAL NOTa Mr. Whytc's thoughts like the summer girls love, change when the winter days coiae. The l)est that can l>e said is tli.vt Mr. Why to forgot all oli�ut that fiist letter. Only a few more days iiiitil njuii-iclpal nom'nut.ons.

While tho Dr. hns never .served at tbo council board, he has given close and thoughtful attention to .tII questions concerning the welfare of Lcthbridgo.
