The authorities, by the system, in vogue in Alberta, aim to reform the prisoners, to make them over, as it were. Ii would be a won- derful advantage to the prisoners arid to the province if the jail succeeded in turning criminals into scientific farmers. The jail farm is a demon- stration farm. The prisoners should be the pupils. If _taer learn the les- sons taught to them, every prisoner should a farm immediately upon release.

As the National had to the fur- tlier discllarge of its functions, the SUGGESTIONS OF A FINANCIAL PAPER The Journal of Commerce of Mon- treal, representing, as it does, the business sentiment of the country, of- fers the foHowing commendable sug- gestions on the political situation in j Canada; 1. That the movement for a genera', election this year be abandoned, as It the spring. 2. That the Canadian Parliament meet at such time as the government may deem best, and proceed about its business, That the government refrain, as far as possible, from 'the introduction ot measures likely to provoke party controversy. 4. That the opposition, while exer- cising with moderation their right of Inquiry and reasonable criticism, earnestly endeavor to avoid the party conflicts- "which produce division. 6. That in this way the representa- tives of the people unite cordially in all measures necessary for the pros- ecution of Canada's part in the war, and that .particularly all the govern- ment's proposed appropriations for the war service be. adopted unanimous- 6. That towards the close of the session, if tbe war continues, an ad- j dress to His Majesty be adopted, ask- i Jng for the passing of an Imperial act to extend the Canadian Parliamentary term for one year, and allowing the Canadian Parliament itself the right, upon, a substantially unanimous vote, to-extend for a second year, if in the war conditions then make some further extension desirable. Sucn a programme, the Journal of Commerce thinks, may not find favor in the eyes of those who, on one side or the other, are looking on this ques- tion entirely from the point of view of party advantage. But The Herald feels sure, along with the Montreal paper, that the programme is one that -tfHI commend itself to thoughtful men of all parties who feel that the country should not be flung into the turmoil of a general election at a time "when our people should be heartily united in the supreme scr- .vicc of Ihe limpirc.

This concern has now heen serving for some months as bank ot! issue, and its notes fcave couie into general cir- culation: especially its sma'iler notes are in great demand, the silver cur- rency having long ago disappeared by reason of hoarding. Two other important financial tasks had to be taken in hand. One I ihe fixing of indemnities to be paid j for supplies of staple coa'i ;and other raw had to be taken over by the military auth- orities for the armies: the other was the abolition of the moratorium which had been in force since the war be- gan. The settlement of the indemni- ties was complicated by tbe fact that the goods in question were in mauy cases not owned outright, but were still to be paid for by the persons from whom .they were seized. The commission having the matter in j hand was, however, authorized to pay in advance half of the value of such goods, pending tbe final adjustment, j in order that manufacturing and oth- er business concerns might, as soon las possible come into possession of j money with which to resume opera- tions. The in orator! urn, on the other hand, presented difficulties which have not yet been overcome. After hearing t the representations of chambers of commerce, individual manufacturers and .other business men, the new banking department attached to the civil Brussels, saxv that hasty action must ho avoided, and up to the present time tbe moratorium continues in force. Still another function of thc bank- ing department is to prevent the pay- ment of money to citizens of hostile countries, in harmony with a meas- ure decreed by the German govern- ment for Germany in retaliation for similar action already taken by Eng- Tomorrow's Gay Gathering What promises to lie the gala event of the Reason is the gar- den party to he given, under the auspices of the LO.D.E., at the Mounted Police barracks, Saturday afternoon and even- ing.
