The fig- ures 'havs .certainly not realized ex- pectations, nor can .they- be said to be a correct.estimation, and for this the system is to-blame. With a to obviate anything of the kind in the future, other; plans should be adopted. Th'e leaving of the responsibility of collecting statistics to enumerators only should not be allowed. It shonid -rest with the head of every household, and' there should be penalties attached to those who would attempt evasion. The system practised in Great Bri- tain is a practical one, and ensures a reliable and correct estimate. The enumeration is fjxed particular day. The forms for fill-' Ing in are left in the hands of the i tenant, of every ho.use, and on him falls the onus-of including tho names Of every' inmate of'ihV house who slept under his roof the preyious night. These forms are called for by a police officer the next day. It "may .be added that the bringing in, ing away of tire forms are done by' police officers, and this, somehow, gives an appearance of dignity, and- brings home the fact that any omis- sions or perversions would to brrng. the offenders within the scope of the law.

Box 679 Phone 1212 The- Standard Securities 'The Prospects of Reciprocity {Weekly; Toronto.) An esteemed correBnondcnt asks what, after the. result's'.of. the late cction, are the prospects of recipro ity.? The Sun answers that the case for The Finances pf Alberta ACCORDING to figures presente{ by Premier Sifton to the ectora of the town of Gleichen a meeting tirere on Tuesday .eveu Ing, Alberta's debt >vas o which JS.SOO.OOO had been "spent on Ruhlic improvements. What has Alberta to -ahpw for it? It has a -telephone, system, including lotal euchangea, rural, lines, and long distance lines, covering-: the whole of the province from Athabasca Land- ing on the north to Cardston 'on the and from the .British Colum- bia boundary on the west to the Sas- katchewan boundary, on the east. Ov- er three anirt 'half million dollaro are invested-in' the telephone system alone, and the.! Premier states the sys- tem is paying interest and expenses. In addition, a cheaper telephone ser- vice has been provided than muter privjife ownership, and communities have been' enabled to get telephone communication sooner .than under th-a Bell Telephone Co.'u policy of waiting Jintil there was an absolute tuarau- iee of an exchange paying before Ihey established it. Bting a new province, where set- tlement lias been pouring into the country rapidly, Alberta has had very heavy obligations to meet. Subslan- lial bridges had lo be built over the rivers, and the expense of building bridges over ,tbe rivers of this prov- ince Is extremely high on account of I ho high 'banks and wide bottoms. Then from end to end of the province new roads had to be opened, and tho PaopJe of the south, where good nat- ural roads exist, have no Idea of tire cost of constructing roads In central and northern Alberta, where conrti- llons are far more difficult. The country Is wooded, and rougher and swamp Ifind Is common, so that road construction, is an expensive under-: Inking. Since' Alberta was created, as a pro- vince; many public buildings of a cost- ly character have been erected. For judicial purposes court houses have been erected at Cardston, Letbbridge, and. Wetasktwiu, and fine new struc- tures are under erection at Calgary and Edmonton. A provincial jail, .cost lag over a. quarter ot a-million dol lars. buildings and land included, has erected at .Lethbridge. and an costing about tbe same, .was just this year at Ponoka Then we have a magnificent new lino -itles office at Calgary, a parliament building at Edmonton that will a1 ways be a credit to this-province, a Normal school at Calgary not aur- in university build ngs at Strathcona. All these build- ngs are substantial, and have ot of money, but they are necessary n order to carry on the affairs of the irovince. .Only last-year a quarter >f a .million dollars" was set aside or demonstration farms, and for hese 'land was purchased and splen- id buildings erected. The province's money has been well spent. It has been spent for purposes helpful to the people.'. An Impartial investigation of. the finances of tho province will show the people that Alberta Is in good, sound condition, and that it. has a dol- lar to -.ihow for every dollar that has been expended. Jlr. Mlchener, th'a leader of the Opposition, had the op- portunity last year, at the session of Legislature, to ex-pore any had financing on the part of tho province, but- he failed to do It. The electors should not be misled with tho talk of the opposition in .1 bye-erection. Let Ihe official records speak. The Liberal party and Its candidate is prepared to rest its case on the re- cord of the party in the'handling of ire finances of this province. OUR POINT.
