STEWART Washington, Sept. 7.—Treasury of ficials are not a little afraid of the Canadian province of Alberta’s ex periment with the “credi t bonus” plan. What they fear is that the “credit bonus” idea will spread—into the United States, maybe. It sounds to them like an idea that should have a strong appeal to a certain type of mentality. In fact, they know that it does, in Alberta; at the recent election there the Social Credit party, which advocates the plan, won 57 out of 63 seats in the provincial legisla ture. The treasury's econ«.«nists sense the peril that the germs will be watt ed across the line —which is only an imaginary one, between Alberta and Montana. These experts don’t understand the plan at all. All they are sure of its that it is expected to pay a “basic dividend” of $25 monthly to each adult citizen of thep rovince, and, to young folk un der 21, of $5 to S2O, ranging upward according to age.

But this is not the case, according to Cap tain Charles D. Farmer, commander of the patrol. e “We are very orry that any judge in the State has an attitude of this kind towards the patrol, since our patrolmen cannot do anything to wards reducing accidents and law violations unless they have the com plete support of the judges and courts over the State,” Captain Farmer said. “For it is useless for a patrolman to arrest drivers if the courts will not convict them.
