The Beef Commission's Resttits The evitience given before the beef commission at its various sittings clearly points to four things. 1st. That the large shippers receive favor thai the smaller ones do not fiet. 3�d. That competition among tha large buyer has Ijeen prneticully eliminated. ard. That the farmers understaitrl that the pr&wnt high prices are but (em|>oniry and that as soon a� the province becomes -well stocked prices will fall to the point w-^bcre it will mean ruin to him whohas gone into tto business of raising cattle or hogs estensively. 4th. Tbat from one end of the province to the other the farmers arc , dcnwnding that the government exercise some sort of control ovur ih meat industry. As was to ho expected, opinions were somewhait divided, 89 to tin manner and extent of this cootrol. The value of orgnniza -aion was very apparent. From the members of the Alberta Farmers' Association, beginning at Cardaton in the south of Edmonton in the north and on through Vegnsville to Ver -million m the east there came the same raqjuest, namely th�it the gov -emmcat build and equip �i pork pack Ing and b�f canning plant sufficiently large enougb to handle cattle and hogs economicnlly; that it operate the same � on a margin sufficiently wide to eneible an ordinary skillful packer to make a fair rate of inter -eat on Ms investment; if the largo packers undertake to run the govcrn-incDt out of the business, they can only do so 4>y paying b gk prices for bogs, d rwcessary, and although every, rrw -mcnt of'time was utiliasod, many Im-poi'tnnt witnesses were turned away unheard. We do not hesitate to predict that the IruHs of this investigation will more than ror>ay the cost^mjd give ample prool' of the wisdom of it. A Tmc Pioneer. In this vc9tcrn country there are old timers-and old timers. Away back in 187a, Henry Procter, who is visi'ting his son, .John K. Procter, the A.n. &i 1. car in.s;>eotor at|Ijeth bridge come from England with the North American Doundary ComimiR.s-ion whoso duty it was to settle the boumlary line between Canada and the United States from the Imke of the Wood.s to the Rocky Hountnin.s.
