Editor LeiWmdge Daily Herald Dear iDternatioual Insur- ance Co., I.-td. jily attention has toeen directed to an editorial article in your issue of the llth inst., re- garding my connection ivilh the in- ternational Insurance Co., Ltd. t'ri- der ordinary circuinstances I am not in the habit of paying much attention to articles of this nature that are in- spired for political purposes tout in this case T have much pleasure in making a departure from my usual rustorn to funiish you with the facts flu connection with this whole matter, For your information I may say the International Insurance Co., -Luv, was incorporated under the provisions of the Companies Act of the Province of Al'certa in 1807 an.i that at that time T was filling the position of Registrar of Joint Stock Companies. You may be further in- terested to know thai- this company's charter was prepared in the office oi Messrs. Short, Cross Biggar of the "city oi Edmonton, of which firm the Hon. i'. W. Cross, attorney-general oi Alberta, was at the time, anrf understand is, today, a member. It might interest you further to know that it was the practice of the pro- vincial secretary's department during my association with it, to submit ev- ery memorandum of association to the attorney-general's depart-nwnt for approval before a .certificate oi incor- poration would issue and that in 1907 when this company was incor- porated, Mr. S. B. Woods, who i.s now associated with the firm ot Short, Cross, Biggar Woods, was the deputy nf the attorney-general; of the International Insurance Co., YOUR GROCER HAS AUTHORITY He knows he can coil Blue Ribbon Tea and feels sure he will satisfy his customer for Blue Ribbon is known (ar and wide excellent tea, but more than that, be is authorized to refund a customer's money if it does not please in every way. and (lie memorandum of association j of the. International Insurance Co., Ltd.. was approved of hy the attor- ney-general's department before the company's incorporation, was effected. The duty which then devolved on me was merely io subscribe my name to the certificate of incorporation oi the company when I was advised by thc attorney-general's department that the documents presented complied in every resput.1 with the provisions of thc Act. Yuii seem to take exception tu what you arc pleased to term the "extra- ordinary powers" given to this com- pany, hut I would like to point out that the powers conferred on this company were no creator and no more "extraordinary" than the pow- ers that are enjoyed by the iireat majorities of companies operating in the province today. Under section of i he Companies Ordinance it is pro- vided "that any three or more per- sons assori.'ite.l for any pur- pose to which the authority of the. legislative assembly extends by subscribing their names to a rremor- andmn of association ami 'otherwise- complying with the requirements of this ordinance in respect of registra- tion, form an incorporated company with or without limited will Uius see that it is possible for a company securing incorporation under} the provisions of the Companies Or- dinance, to enjoy every lawful author- ity that could be conferred upon it by the legislature and I would ob- liged by your pointing out to me any power given lo thc International In- surance Co..' Ltd., that is unlawful or that could not be given to It by the legislative assembly. So far as iny connection with the company is concerned (and this ap- i pears to lie tlin point on which you arc desirous oi having information) I may say that I subscribed for ten shares in the company's capital stock' in the sanre manner as Mr. William j Short, of the firm of Short. Cross Biggar, Mr. .Sccutd of tin; firm of McDougal A: Sccord, Mr. A. i E. May postmaster of Edmonton, Jilr. Alex IJiitchart for several years coin-j missioiier of the city of Kdmonton, t and other gentlemen vim were, asso- ciated in the enterprise. We believed that there wiie K.XWI in the. province' {of Alberta for an enterprise of that asked by air. Spencc to continue' to citizen and as a member of the nature and we were prepared to lend j he a shareholder in the company, but lature 1 am prepared, to lend every I our money and energy in its develop-- declined, and I relinquished my sh ment. I paid all calls en my shares I for a sum considerably less than in cash, just as the other sharehold- ers did, and I am today several hun- dred dollars poorer as a result of thel had paid for them. I _ j tiiat it is the dutv of the eovcrnnu-nt venture. Mr. Thomas Boos, of Lon- 1 and the legislature to'investigate the an investigation. 1 do I not mean by tins, however, that .ill j companies operating in the province riuitc agree with your statement I are in that !losilion' is not the case, hut T do. think .that it don, Ont., was appointed as general i manager of the company and an of-' lice was opene.1 in the city of Edmon- ton. After several months of opera- l lion the enterprise did not prove as successful as the directors ami mau- ager had hoped for, with thc result- that the operations of the company were suspended. The .directors per- Konally discharged all the company's liabilities, and before 1 severed my connection with the provincial secre- affairs of a great- many of the com- panics operating in Alberta. After my .Connection with the provincial secre- tary's department, extending for a period of nearly live years, I have personal knowledge of companies that have been incorporated and arc today operating in the province, the afiairs of which most decidedly need inves- tigating, i have knowledge of indi- viduals, including those high in of- lary's department' I. took the" initial'ficc in U'c -steps to cancel the company's charter in the manner prescribed by section and occupying scats on the judiciary of the province, whose connections of the Ordinance. The procedure in wlt1' thc j paml would make very interesting reading, i and for my part both as a private The Experienced Cook Says' "T use connection with the cancellation of a company's charter is a long one and before tin's had elapsed whereby the company's incorporation con been cancelled, I had severed my connection with the department, and, apparently, my successor did not pro-J cecd with the cancellation proceed- ings. Pome tinie afterwards Mr. .T. M. .Spcncc had an interview with the H. Mitchell, who was at the time the attorney-general of the pro- vince, iii Mr. Spence's roon> in the Vale hotel at Kdmonton and it was at this meeting that the- aHorney- .penera! suggested to Mr. Spcnce that, the charter of the International In- surance Co., could he revived. Apparently the attorney general did j not thivik that thc charter was ss in-' iquitous as you believe it to be or else he was negligent ir: his duty to j the public wlic-n ho suggested reviving the charter- Subsequent to this in- terview with Mr. Clarry, the deputy attorney-general, during the course of which Mr, Harry gave it as his opin- ion that there WHS nothing to pn--, vent thf company's rbarter truiir re-!

The experience of Motherhood is a try- ing one to most women and -marks dis- tinctly an epoch in their lives. Not one woman in a hundred is prepared or un- derstands how to properly care for her- self. Of course nearly every woman nowadays has medical ,treatment at such times, but many approach the experience with an organism unfitted for the trial of strength, and when it is over her system has received a shock from which it is hard to recover. Fol- lowing right upon this cornea-the ner- vous strain of caring for the child, and a. distinct change in the mother results. There ia nothing more charming than a happy and healthy mother of children, find indeed child-birth under1'the right conditions need be no hazard to health or feeauty. The tmexplainable thing is that, with all the evidence of shattered nerves and broken health resulting from an un- prepared condition, and with ample time in which to prepare, women will persist, in going blindly to the trial. Every woman at this time should rely upon Lydia E.Pinkham'sVegetable Com- pound, a most valuable tonic and invig- orator of the female organism. Jn many homes once childless there are now children he- cause of the fact that Lydia E. Pink- ham's Vegetable Compound makes women healthy and strong, If jou iviinf spcnlal mlrlcotrrUo to Lydm K.
