The government is doing splendidly. H took over tire task of administering the affairs of Alberta at a time when aJl-was chaos, and Jiou- all is in order. It grappled with a serious situation' and bandK-il it courageously. Alberta is moving a- long peacefully arid and why should 'ihis city, for the sake of party polities consider returning an opponent of that government. Mr. Shepherd. tlK Liberal candi- date, is an exfeptionally clever man. j He be a persistent advocate of the needs of and this ilis- trier at Edmonton. He will have j tho -car of tia government, and will be able to impress it with our needs, an opponem, who is elected for the sole purpose of criticising, will fail. ft th'3 gov-erntuent was not adminis- tering the affairs of the province sat- isfactorily, the-h we might consider the election oppoireut, but since the government is giving lisfaction. fexcopt to a few hide-bound i Tory partisans, ,why should we con- j skier lite election of an opponent of I that government'.' The Open Window NOT ALb THE PUBLIC, perhaps, are aware, .of the spread or what iias Ijesn justly termed the White Plague. Kven .in a com- paratively new country, like ours, the effects of its ravages are ajiparant. l The "Door of a pampnletl which'has for its purpose the majiing au end of .consumption iirCanada, op- ens uur eyes with regard to the pro- gress of the disease here. We read that about 17. per cent, of all .-deaths are from tuberculosis..aid that three thousand are taken away with it In Ontario alone. In view of lllis statement, it is well for us to note tire importance of the adage' "Prevention is better than cure." One of (lie essenlials iu this preven- tion is fresh air. The admission of our lionves, school- rooms, and places where people con- cresalB, should beWarmly advocated. ipeniug of the bedroom' window should be a" necessity, for, iu addition' io giving a-free-flow of fresh air, it acts'as a safeguard against, the catch- ing of qolds. t The', germs of disease are more or less'in oxisl'euce about us.. To keep Immune it. is necessary to'fortify bur constitutions against them. In this, out of door life, wholesome food, and temperate habits greatly help. In time? gone by the altitud-a of our forefathers was that if the'defective individuals perish, we leave a race stronger for their absence. They ac, cepied disease as a relentless fact, niau eonld stand against. The progress of hygienic studies have, changed this view. The preservation of a strong race exists in tallowing out the rules laid down from 'the. experience of-these stndfes. A fair Weather Politiean Shepherd a Good Candidate (Calgary Albertan.) In ii'ie -.selection of .Mr. Shepherd as. candidate for the legislature, Uie crals of L.othbridse liuve placed hands on one ot' the coming men of the prov- ince. Clean In his life, intellecumlly. bright, and endowed by uotiire with gifts which win and hold the confi- dence of men, Mr. Shepherd has every opportunity of making 'liis mark In pub- lic life.

When Chief Justice, of this prov- ince, Mr. Sifton ruled on a specific case, holding the company "liable for local improvement taxes.
