With these and other mutters in mind it may not l�e fur from the truth to say that the vote on Monday was a general kick against the iiuuuigeinent of affairs by the'council. If such is the case it is up to the kickers to coine out from Ivhind the secrecy of Ihe ballot and slate -their case lie-fori- the iiiuiiicipnli elections, which are soon due. are held. The Tel egrnm's reply to the charge is a rich bit of sarcasm.

A11 i:\YMOND i A number of High lliv .riles consisting oiJi. \\. I-I. Thompson. Harry ItuincsTw. Wake. H. L. McMillan have a large farm in Southern Alberta near Ka.unond.

This is vouched for on gooil authority and more than that, the wheat grades No. 1 lialher interesting is it not in view of the malicious report} of some American pn|>ers which claim crop in Southern Alberta was no good.

Take a Census. The first convention ever held by 'AUiertii Liberals put in the platform a plank favoring government owner-Ship of telephones. That was u lit-tlo liver a year ag-o. What has hi-en tho result ? The platform has hum aarried out so that we have in Alberta nearly five hundntl miles of JJ.U'u- strung on the people's system nnd work is still proceeding. Leth-lirfdgo and the rest of this south-in country will lie connected with the government line liefoiv much tiino able to keep in touch with- tho out-sldo world without leaving the form. ers, and in other ways proved its desir,, to instruct and nilvis" Ihe farmer and enable him in make as much pi'iilit out of las labors on the farm as pi�ss-ib!e. It is reromiiz >d that AI bu-t a's premier is a strong man, not on a platform, far none oi the Cabinet Ministers are oraioi'.s. but lie is strong in his il'Termiiint ion to do what is best1 t t for Alberta. lie is honest and con-I scienl inn-; and you can wager that as long as Alexander Cameron Rutherford is at the helm, the ship of state in Alberta will follow the straight and narrow course. Mr Itu therford s heart is wiap|n�d up in Hie fdiuatioiial advancement of the province. He started out determined lo have a university without delay and a university we are lo have. He wants our hoys to receive I heir higher, as well as secondary, education in Albert a and i'l is a very commend able ambition. Mr. llntie'iford needs only tu d i one more thing to advance the educational cause along and i bit is to put i l,e agricultural college at l^'thbridge. We can convince hi to. if iii' have not already, thai ihis is the best spot in Alberlu tor such a college. ' What is the population of fi'th-bridge"'" is a question every i-iti/ni is asked by visitors. And no one knows. Various guesses an- made palling the population unywheiu from :i.">iiO to liiHiii. The facts oi , the city's population are very import ant inform,u ion and should In: known Would ii not be a wis.' plan for the city lo have a police census taken b'-j lore the end of the year'.' If the til.v cannot nlloril il and the police; are too busy, perhaps the churches of the city would organize a census lo find out their respective populations and incidentally find that of the city. I Or perhaps ihose who semi-ocensinn-all.v talk a grand runv iip-to-ilale hotel would lake the census to find on I whether the population would war-ranl applying for a licnse.
