It will prove profit-able. hefiudsotfc Bay (Tonwm^JS T The remarkable growth of the Alberta Farmers' Co-operative Elevator company is interesting as reflecting tho agricultural development of Alberta during tho past fow years. This company started in 1913 with a membership of 5,500; after three years of working its membership is now almost trebled. During the first year of its existence the company handled 3,000,000 bushels of grain; in 1016 it handled 1D,:�0,000 bushels. In 1913 it had 40 elevators; this fall It will have 144 elevators ready to receive tliis soason's crop. In 1014 its livestock department was opened, but very little business was done in that year. In 1915, hi-.wover, It handled 344 cars of livestock, consisting of 27,529 hogs, 897 cattle and 991 sheep; last year tho number of carB of stock handled had increased to 628, consisting of 36,274 hogs, 3,545 cattle and (!59 sheep; this year points to a further increase, at least fifty per cent., in the number of cars of stock handled. Much progress has been made in the supplies department which supplied wire, lumber, hay, etc., to farmers at lowest prices. Seven hundred and five cars of supplies wore handled In 1915 and 998 in 191G. Tills company will amalgamate with the Amalgamated Grain Growers Grain company as from the 1st September this year, and the amalgamated companies will be known as tho United Grain Growers, Limited. The new company will operate over 350 elevators, chiefly i'> Alberta and Manitoba, with a terminal elevator ut Fort William, and a hospital elo-vator at Port Arthur for treatment of off grade grain.

Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 6.-In answer to a question by Mr. Lanctot, of La Prairie, Sir George Foster stated that S. E. P. McCue, high official in coal and transportation work of Pittsburg, O., had been appointed assistant to the Dominion fuel controller at an annual salary of $25,000. Ho was specially qualified and bad Intimate knowledge of coal supplies and railroad transportation and had been recommended by Mr. Peabody, chairman of United States commission as best man available. He was an American citizen. Sir Wilfrid Laurier pointed out that tho McLeod-Tellier Commission evi-deuce of the Gait charges had not yet been brought down In the house though ho had thrice called for it. On motion to go Into supply, Sir Wll frld Laurier brought up the question of privilege to which Hon. Mr. Pugs-ley had risen a fortnight ago in connection with tho statement made by Sir Robert Borden during the discus sion regarding the appointment of the MoLeod-Tellier commission. Sir Robert had claimed as a precedent the at titude taken by Sir Wilfrid Laurier regarding the report made by the Landry commission insofar as it'referred to Hon. Mr.. Pugsloy. had been retained despite tho finding. Sir Wilfrid declared that on that occasion the opposition hud disregarded the evidence altogether and based their attack on the findings only as though it were a judgment of a court of law, which it really was not. The report of the commissioner was for review by parlament but tho judgment, was not binding and no value excepting so far as it reflects tho truth and bore out tho evidence Mr. Crothers, who pressed for action in connection with the report, stated decisively that ho did not propose to discuss tho evidence. Britain in twolve months will have to import five months' supplies, according to tho statement by Kennedy Jones, director general of food economy, Great Britain. His calculation included the cereals at present on hand, the rate of submarine losses, tho new tonnage to be available and tho result of tho campaign to eliminate food waste. Canada and hte United States are looked to for the five months' supplies necessary to" be imported. PREMIER'S WIFE AT OVERSEAS CLUB L. A. 8COTT, Manager. 514 4TH AVE. > Au |'At*Hltoo'' #��iield at the Oversea* Club to meet Mm. Lloyd-George, who on nor arrival was presented with a bouquet by Mill lilt* Henderson. Ottawa, July 21.-Tho main object of the conscriptionists on both skies of politics from now on must bo to keep the Borden Government's nose to it. The Military Service Act has lost considerable of its charm for tho Government which now seems disposed to viow it In tho light of a Frankenstein which may destroy Its creator. At all events they show signs of backing up. One of tho first signs was their readiness to dispense with the elaborate classification of tho hill and put all the single anil married men from twenty-one to tliirty-fivo with no ties under one class. ThiB amendment was accoptsd with groat alacrity by the Hon. Arthur Meighen who Is willing to share the blamo with almost everybody. Another sign of cold feet waa the penalizing clauses for newspapers which might publish anything In the way of criticism of conscription or of tho methods which the Government might or might not employ to carry it out. Under pressure of a sturdy public opinion on both sides of the Houso in favor of free speech Mr. Molghon was obliged to substitute 'may" for "shall," so that tho suppression of newspapers with Ideas of their own is now optional on tho part of the Government instead of mandatory as before. Which is to say that wo will continue to havo nn unfettered press in Canada if tho Government chooses. Impartial observers aro of the opinion that the Government had bettor choose a free pre3s or some Canadian Northcliffo may arise who will knock all their heads togethor. It Beams strange at this late date that Canada should adopt all the obnoxious features of press censorship which wore eliminated by Englund when she saw where suppressing the truth landed her. What makes It worse is that Canada has not tho game, excuso as England because  in England there was real danger of conveying information to the enemy through those public channels. But an air tight press censorship 'in Canada has no axcuso but a desire on-tne part of a docrepft Government to stop tho other fellow's mouth. A preBB censorship such as Mr. Meighen outlines in his famous clauses would not only shut oft all criticism of conscription as conscription but also all criticism of any phase of the Govornment's activities, which might cauao prospective conscripts to say that the Borden Government waa not worth fighting for. For exnmpo there is the Borden Government's alliance witli that great and good man Sir Josoph Flavelle, iho pious pork packer-an alliance which 1b probably us unpopular with Conservatives as it is with Liberals. Sir Joseph, to n larger degree, perhaps than any other man in Canada symbolizes the high cost of living. His alliance With the Borden Government is so close .and Intimate that there is no dodging' R. Sir Joseph nnd the High coat of living will be a bump o" the Borden Government's back whf conscription la forgotten. Like tl poor-ami most of us are poor-tho high cost of living 13 always with us and tho poorer wo are tho more wo feci it. When ho returned from England tho last time Sir Joseph mado a speech whose ochoos still reverberate through tho land. He said that Canadian business men shoud bo ashamed to make so much money. His son,-timents were noble. If I remember rightly ho said that all should serve the state tor tho state's sake and cut out the dividends. Ho crystallized it in a phrase "to hell with profits." Ho left it to be inforred that Sir Joseph Flavolle was working for nothing but n few kind words ond a baronetcy- both of which ho has since collected. It now transpires that when Sir Joseph said "to hell with profits" he moant to hell with tho other fellows' profits. Sir Joseph's own profits wero to be sacred-as sacred as most men's religion which is so sacred that it is rarely talked about. W. K. O'Connor's latest report on the high cost of living shows that Sir Joseph on one bacon contract with the British Government mado four and a half million dollars. Of course be sold that enormous quantity of bacon at a much lower prico than he does to purchasers by tho pound. He made something oyer five cents a pound on it which gives you some idea of how much more he probably makes on bacon Intended for the home market. A glimpse at tho tax returns for last year shows that the Davleg Packing Company-which is another of Sir Joseph's aliases-turned into the Dominion treasury $109,623 as Ub quarter share of profits in excess of seven por cont. That is to say the total profits on which taxes were paid wore, $471,496. As Sir Joseph is a just man and would not lie about Ills business profits in Canada it follows that the bacon contract on which he made four and a half million dollars was carried out In somo countries whero Canadian taxes aro not paid- presumably in the United States. Ouo supposes that it is little transactions like this which the press-irag clauses of tho Military Sorvice Act are intended to protect. For certainly nothing could create a stronger feeling against tho conscription of flcsli and blood than to think that Sir Joseph was loft behind to make a huge fortune out of tho soldier's wives and families. It must bo admitted that Mr. Meighen parted with the "shall" part of his gag clauses with regret because tho Solicitor-General beliovos in making people do things whether they like it or not. That is Mv. Meighen's typo of miud. He believes that there is ft.ruling class and that the rjllng class ought to rule and thoso ruled should take their niedicino cheerfully.. Mr. -Molghon has a nickname--he is known as Arbitrary Arthur. If he lived in the Middle Ages he would have taken great pleasure in being the managing director of the Inquisition. . Tho appointment of Mr. W. J.'Han-">n as a Food Controller wuobo chief -ly 1b to issue statomonts telling us live on greon stuff la not likely to i have much effect on the high cost of | living as long as Sir Joseph Fiavelle I is at the other end of the teeter. Ev-ory time Mr. If anna bears down Sir Joseph will bear up and the price of bacon will stay whero it is. Providence may help Food Controller Hanna out for the summer and autumn months when the green stuff comes with a rush and prices tako a slump but after that things will be about as they wero befire. H. F. GADSBY. Tho food controllers of Canada and the Unltod States will work in mutual harmony and understanding. Hon. W. J. Hanna ,the Canadian food controller, and Mr. Herbert Hover have known each other for somo years. Charles Rose, of Haileytrury, aged 14 years, son of a T. ft N. O. foreman, died as a result of burns received. A can of oil which the boy was using to light a fire in preparation for supper in a boarding car exploded. With his clothos in flames, tho lad plunged into the lako nearby and after emerging from tho water appeared to be not seriously burned.
