Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - August 8, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta i'riday, August 8,1913. THE LETHBRIDGE DATT.Y HERALD Page 5 Mr. McMulIen Explains Scope of Proposed Marketing Asso" ciations-Some Concrete Illustrations N TOUCH WITH THE ET MS ADOED PROFIT were never marketed. Why-because there was no demand. Now if there had been a marketing association, the man in charge would have Icnown before ever the potiitoes were planted how many acrea there would be In the district; he would have Information as to the probable yield in Western Canada, and could then form some Idea as to what the prevallin/; price in Lethbrldge would be when the crop matured. Ho would then have quietly sent out the advice to grow half the of potatoes. Probably in the meantime he would have received information that some other crop indicated a low acreage, and the prices would consequently bo higher. His advice in such ii case would be to grow more of that crop. 'the scheme would result in controlling the production and getting the best price for it, which is simply what any manufacturer who knows his busineas would do. Mr. McMullen assured the Herald that the C. P. R. would do everything in their power to make the scheme a success. It would mean money to theiu for it would mean increased prosperity to the farmers and that prosperity would moan increased freight for the road. It Is tlie old question of supply and demand put into concrete form and made use of by a practical application. "I believe that it the cities of Alberta, Instead of sr^ntine: free fiites, flheap power, water and light at cost and other inducements to small manufacturers who employ ten or fifteen hands, would instruct their industrial ooimmiBBionerB to endeavor to organize a farmora' marketing association, the cities would reap a. great deal more benefit, for Alberta, for yaars to come Will be primarily an agricultural province, and the cities must depend oa the farmers for their prosperity." The Herald Interviewed H. C. Mo-Mullen, live stock commlSBlonsr of the C. P. K. last evening regarding the market association outlined by him at the Board of Trade luncheon, ^nd found him enthusiastic on the subject. During the pait few months a great deal has been said in lycth-brldige about the formation of such an organization, but �o far no man has been found; to take the wheel and the Idea has.not been developed. "If the cities would only realize their poBfllblllti�a la this matter," continued Mr. McMullen, "they would not hesitate, to grant ftnancial asslstancev If they could help the farmers of their district to get ome cent a bushel more lor their wheat, or two dollars a head more for every head of cattle sold, the money return to the farmers would be so much gr�ater In the total that it would make one gasp. It can be done only by organization. It Is pimply a question of knowing supply and ^eniaad. What individual farmer has time to gather the mass of detail lie would like to have at hand in marketing his crop? There are none. It can be done only by co-operation." Mr. McMullen bellevfes the nucleus of such an organization would be the TJ. F. A. locals, and that the industrial commissioners ot Calgary, Lethbrldge and Edmonton should, call together iiie presidents of these locals within their districts and endeavor to perfect some sort of district organization. Once this; Is done, it would not be long before a provincial organization couid be formed. There Is no reason why Nick Tait-Inger of ClaresJiolra should have netted 20 cents a bushel more for his barley last fall than other Southern Alberta farmers, whose product is nearly as good. air. Taltinger applied ''to the G. P. R. They used their wide Information regarding the world markets to And him a market in Glasgow. But the C. P. R. nor any other transportation company can take up every application ot the sort made to them. The result is that the farmers market ^at hapliazard, and take whatever price Is handed them. One of the best examples of cooperation In'marketing is found in the California citrus growers' union. 'A few years ago they had no union. Every /farmer markated by himself, and took chances. The result was that the market in one ;part was slutted while another was crying for lemons or orangeis. The waste of such a system has paid a hundred times the cost of maintaining a bureau in Xos Angeles through -which all such fruit is marketed. Therg is ao reason, said Mr. McMullen, why the farmers ot Southern Alberta should not get the price prevailing on the world markets for aay commodity, less the freight' and com-mieeion. It they do not get it, they �hoiild know the reason why, and the only way they can find out that reason yould be through a central or-jfanization.' Then there'is the other question of fcupply and demand. Last fall there were thousands of tons of potatoes in �JBouthem Alberta. Hundreds of tons W HORSES FOR M EIGHTEEN WILL BE THERE-GRAIN CUTTING GENERAL -CITIZEN HAS TYPHOID NCHER CREEK'S GOOD RECORD - PincKer Creek, Aug. .5.-The Pinch-er Creek schools made a splendid showing in the recent examinations.
