In othiT words, tlie millions of acres of land held for speculation', and largely held by people lining out-sitlo the province, will he compelled to contribute to the eanoral revenues of Alberta. IMPOSE A SUR-TAX The government will take power under the act to impose a sur-tax so that what is paid for municipal and school purposes will be supplemcat^d by a tax for the j^onoral use of the people.

Mr. .\ugust Manry, an old acquaintance of Sir.

IMr. IManry also relates that a young friend who had returned from Belgium, where ho had been serving in the army, is min'is an ear and part of his nose, inluries inflicted by the German soldiers without any justification. We are forced to bolievo these E'torits of wanton cruelty when brought so near home. Tho German, H. Elmer, seeie'tary of tlic Michel Miners' Union, is now in tlw Fernie jail, whither he was hrought by the provincial police upon instructions from the military authorities, cliarged with using seditious language ; he will probably be sent to the detention camp at Vernon, to be held until the close ol Hostilities, unless he can satisfy the autlioritics that ho bad no hostile in-tentio;is �hen he used the language tjjj.buf.a-standing features o� a busy day devoted chieily to the passage of resolutions were the assuming of the presidential reins by J.
