For the Public Safety THE WARNING issued by I'.irk Superintendent Mitchell througl our columns should be serious ly considered by parents, and others responsible for tho care of the young. Tho ice on the lake at Henderson Park is still thin, and there is a cer- tain amount of danger'lo those who attempt skating on it. In view of the many fatalities, which are the results of -venturing too early on the ice a great deal of caution is necessary. As a public protection it would be a useful plan to place on the ico a board mark- ed when skating IE to be taken down considered 'safe. .There should also be a man. to act as a sort of patrol to prevent the too venturesome from courting unneces- sary danger. The lake is under the control of the city council, and' for this.reason it becomes a part of a duty to see that the above provisions are made. Our .natures are such that man} of us.require protection from our selves. Tills is not only applicable- to boys.aud girls, but to those who are, years older. There is always something. fascinating in" taking risk, and for safeguarding human be- ings from'this inclination it is only that there shouM be pro- per, regulations and means, for eusur- ng; safety. Treating, of means for providing irotectjoii for the, public the propoBi- tlqri of, Mr. McKeown, of the Board of Trad? fs'.one which is well called for.' it refers to the placing of gates at 'the level crossing on Thirteenth street. With the extra traffic, which will go across It. this spot is likely to prove a dangerous one, and means to eliminate accidents are 'well-advised. Borrowing arid: Progress PREMIER SIFTON added an other five millions to the debt of Alberta last week in England. He will now bo able to decla're a surplus to the people of Alberta the Alberta leg- islature meets in the spring." The above is from the Red Deer News, the personal organ of the lead- er of the Conservative party in this province, and is on a par with most of tiie criticism of the Alberta govr er uiu cut The government is extending the telephone service to the remote sat- tements of the province years ahead of when a private company would do the 'work. It is building roads and bridges and doing everything possible to'inake life easier and money making more profitable for the farmer. To do thin it is necessary to borrow. If the government wished to build tele- phone lines out of earnings it prob- ably, in many years to come, would give tho service to districts getting now.' But that is not tho LiK-. J policy. The telephone lem is operated so successfully that' all the..interest charges are paid on 'loans and an amount set aside as a sinking fund to retire the bonds ten and twenty years hence. That is good business and in strong contrast to the policy of the Conservatives as hinted _at in the criticisms of Mr. Michener's organ. -Every municipality has to bor- row money to install improvements, even Red Deer, where the News is published. There isn't a rural school district, no matter how few the rate- payers, but has to borrow in order to erect a school to give the children a chance. That is the rule hi con- nection with all kinds of business and the government of Alberta would be criminally remiss if they sat still and did" not'borrow in order to give the country much needed improvements. Of-course the Red Deer News and ts leader may follow the non-borrow- ing course lit their private affairs but the province will never give Mr. Mich- oner a'chalice if his organ is fairly reflecting his views on borrowing. It s.just sUQh-pinheaded criticisms that vill tend to keep tho opposition where they are. This province has no use or'stick, hi the muds, and to that 'lass apparently Red Deer Vews.

The of Airships T HU FIRST OPPORTUNITY invented, testing tho practicability of the airship in actual warfare has been furnished in the Balkan cam- paign. The experience, however, can- not, be said to be satisfaui.ory, for it was brought down by the Turkish cannon. However, tills matter has not been allowed serious consideration, and the nations of Europe arc still concentrating their attention on per- fecting the machine for war purposes. The Germans now own a dirigible manned by a crew of eighteen men, capable of a (light of four successive days, and of dropping a large weight of explosives. In the possession oi machine Germany stands in a unique position, but it cannot be tak- en that she will long remain so. In- make -each.nation amongst the Great J'owers endeavor to go one better.

So long AS international .suspicions exist, so Jong will air machines continue to one more deadly than that -Vnfore. Should this branch o war service finally attain a degree o perfection ai.-_; reliability, the catas trophes which ensue in future battles must be that ordinary humanity must look win, horror on the results, But out of the dire outlook there, is some degree of consolation that after all, wlien aerial battle become; a fact, there will be a minimizing In the IOSK of human life should battles be confined to the air. This is the one and the only argument from a humanitarian wpinl that can bo put :forward in favor of the airship In war. Should future warfare eventually result In combats purely between air- ships, considering tho few numbers with which1 each 'will be manned, the loss of human not he so ap- palling as when, some great Dread- nought ia sent to the bottom of the sea. If tho energies expanded in tlie de- vising and construction of airships re- sult in this outcome, then the world will have a Tittlo to be thnnhful for.
