Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 5, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta FRIDAY, AftUL 5, 1918 THE LETHBRIDGE DAJL,Y HEBALU PAGE NINE; Gpvt. Buys Land From Ray Knight Believed for That Purpose Though no announcement has been made officially at Edmonton, the Herald Is lh receipt of information that the agricultural school and demonstration farm, which it was announced a year ago would be established tsoutli of Lethbridge, Is to be located at Raymond. The race for the school was a hot one between Raymond, Magrath and Warner. Between Raymond and Ma-grath particularly there was a great competition, and now Raymond had been chosen the people of Magrath are trying to figure out why the Sugar Town should have been preferred to the Garden City. The Horald's information, which is general talk In Raymond, Is that the department of agriculture has purchased from Ray Knight 450 acres of the Knight Sugar Co. farm adjoining the town. Indications are that the school and farm buildings will ba put under construction without delay, as the capacity of the Claresuolm school Is overtaxed and the new .school will be a necessity in the south before another winter. e F A Vast Amount of Money Used Up in Exchange on Drafts Just why there should be an embargo on the entrance into Canada from the United States of certain commodities, was well illustrated by a local tractor dealer this morning when he told the Herald that, whereas, last year five dollars would cover the exchange on the cost of a traotor, this year it costs him $24 to buy a draft covering the cost of an ordinary $1400 machine. This means more than quadrupling of the exchange rate between Canada and the United States. It means that Canada has to pay about $1425 Canadian money to retire a bill of $1400 in the United States. It is for tiiis reason that the Canadian war board Is considering an embargo on such commodities as automobiles, tires, accessories, patent medicines, silverware, Jewelry, musical instruments of all kinds, boots and shoes, ready-made clothing, and, In fact, every article which can be manufactured In Canada. On Coal Import* Also Some of the local coal operators, talking to the Herald about this matter this morning pointed out that the use of American ooal in the west tended to aggravate the exchange situation. Last year there were imported in Western Canada from the United States 2,213,000 tons of American coal valued at $6,440,000/ ff tho same amount of American coal is brought in this year it will not only add by ovsr $�,000;000 to the be'rwee of trade against us, but it will require nearly $120,000 to pay the exchange | in transferring that amount of money to the American banks. And $120,-000 would buy nearly 30,000 tons of Alberta coal at tho pit-mouth, enough to keep a mine capable of producing 100 tons a day busy a whole year. It was this state of affaira which was partly responsible for the passing of tho following resojutlon at the last meeting of the Rocky Mountain branch of tho Canadian Mining Institute In Ferule: "That this meeting of the Rocky Mountain branch of the Canadian Mining Institute is of the opinion that the government of the Dominion of Canada should consider diverting American coal to Ontario in such quantities as the mines of Alberta are In a position to replace In the markets of Manitoba and Saskatchewan." A copy of this resolution has been forwarded to Sir iiobert L. Borden, Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of Mines, Hon. A. it. Slfton, Minister of diatoms, and Mr. C. A. Magrath, Pi�t Controller. Certainly the exchange question is beginning to come home to the people of Canada who are doing business with U. S. firms, and they quite understand the government's efforts to cut down Imports from across the line. Buying and Selling on a Com-patftive Basis Will Be On In Full Swing Few people realized thai, with tho announcement of the P. Enrns Co. the other day of the piircliaso of stockyards and abattoir sites, Letnbridgo was to see the establishment oi! an open market in the city for livestock of all kinds. But such ia the cane, and before many months competitive purchasing of all stock shipped hero for sale will be in full swine. At the present time tho now firm o� Knight find Watson have a buyor stationed at the yards, and a largo business it', being done. I toga to tho vol umo of about three! carloads a wetik, which formerly wore �h.tppcd to tho Calgary market, are now being bought here by thin company and forwarded to tho packers at Mooao Jaw and Winnipeg. Formerly hog Hliip-ments wont, to Oalgary for sale, and from llioro they were shipped on to Moose .law* The establishment of tho local market has dono much to stiffen prices in tho south country. With the entry of tho P. Hums Co. into the market, hero. it. becomes a competitive one in every sense of tha word, and farmors will ho iu daily receipt of l.dhbrirtgc quotations which will be very close to tho prices helnic paid in Calgary. In tact, there is no reason why tho Lethlirhige market should not pay just as good prices as (hose paid in Calgary when tho volume -of business through the local ylira's assumes a little larger proportions, for Lethbridge is closer to the Moose Jaw. Winnipeg, Seattle Mil Vancouver packers than is Calgary. Great Sheep Market That l.ethbridge will become the leading market for live sheep in" Can* ada is admitted by buyers now In tHW field. More sheep are bedng ralslYl In proportion in this territory than to -any other part of the Dominion and with, the establishment-of yards here, all the big packing companies will have buyers on hand during the'bW sheep shipping months. Tho only complaint of the buyers is that, the run of boss is not, heavy enough, and fanners are being'"urged-on every ha nil to raise more porkers. It. is forecasted that high prices will continue. Beef prices aro also ex* peeled to remain firm. James Kshoii. I lie famous heavyweight. Scottish wrestler, died recently at the front, lie was in the army service at Camiirai.

If coated, it is a sure Bign that your little one's stomach, liver and bowels need a gentle, thorough cleansing at once.

Keith Bell Agent ., 1212 8lxth Avenue South On Saturday last Messrs. Fairfield, Hardie, Grace and Moore dt the Leth-bridge fair board visited. Cardston to discuss with the fair board and council of that town, the amalgamation of the Cardston fair this year with the Lethbridge, Magrath and Raymond fairs. They have not yet made their report, it being understood that they are awaiting word of definite action on the part of the southern board, but indications are that the amalgamation' will be effected, and the big fair and stampede here in July, will represent the whole southwestern portion of the province. , Hon. Marshall Pleased That this amalgamation Is pleasing to Hon. Duncan Marshall, minister of agriculture. Is indicated In a very pleasing reference he made to the scheme in an address by him to the annual convention of the American Association of Fairs and Expositions, held during the winter at Chicaeo. Hon. Mr. Marshall's speech was so highly considered that It was printed In pamphlet form and is being distributed by one of the U. 8. papers all through the United States. Of the Lethbridge amalgamated, fair he said: I have determined to make a proposition in my province at the next annual meeting of the Fair Associations, which meets' in the month of February, that we are going to look over these small fairs, and wherever we find one not up to a standard we are going to cancel its charter and refuse its grant. And whenever we find ex� hibitions that are being carried on in a way that makes them of useful service to their community we are going to assist them further. In one in stance we were able this year, I think, to consolidate five small exhibitions that have been struggling institutions, have been in debt and been in trouble most of the time, and that have always been in that financial atate where one wet day would likely 'put them out of business, and we have been able to consolidate those five shows into what we believe next year will be one good exhibition, to be held in the city of Lethbridge, in the southern part of the Province of Alberta, While every locality does not admit of doing this as well or as successfully or us definitely as it does in Lethbridge and the vicinity, we hope to do something of that kind in other localities.
