At the very outset there two points which must give satisfaction. 1. The province kas not incurred one cent of debt. 2. The government no tax upon the people in general. Even if the administration hud not a splendid record in its legislation and enforcement statutes, in its public education and agriculture it would still have reason to be proud of its- eihinfeully successful and business- like xaduiiiustvation .of the country's inanc-'es.

Nolhihg but the most efficient management could carry on such vast' nrtchinery as successfully as it has been, done in the past three years. All this is a history to be proud of. It may safely be said thut the man who murmurs todnv at anything that the government has done will not Mand up and utter his reasons aloud. It may be said that the man who murmurs at anything the government has left- undone should be told to wait. The record is unimpeachable; the future is bright with hope. The Rutherford administration has proved itself capable ot handling big situa- tions in a big way, and details in an accurate way. There has been IcgidlA- tion that has embodied the -wishes of the majority; there has been admin- istration flint has dealt impartially with all alike. The people of Alberta .look for a continuation of the work. ;
