REEVE Manager A*A^nfcttsi S6ittta1i4 The Beef Commission's Results The evidence given before the boot commission at Us vnriouH sittings clearly points to four things. 1st. That tho large shippers receive favor that the smaller oiioh do not get. Sim). That competition among tha large buyer hits Ijeen practically eliminate*!. flrd. That the farmers understand that the. present high prices are hut temporary and thai as soon as tho province becomes well stocked prices will full to the point where it will menu ruin to him wltohnn gone Into tho business of raising cattle or hogs extensively. 4th. That from one end of the province to tho other the farmers are demanding that the government exercise soma sort of control over tho meat industry. As was to bo expected, opinions were somewhat dlv-Mcd, as to the manner and extent of thin control. The value of organ ixn -slon was very apparent. Prom the memljcrs of tho Allicrta Farmers' Association, beginning at Cardston in tho south of Edmonton In the north and on through Vegrevillc to V�r. -million m tho east there came the same request, namely that the gov -crnment build And equip � pork pack Ing and baef canning plant sufficiently large enough to handle cattle and hogs economically; that it operate tihe same on a margin sufficiently wide to enable an ordinary skillful packer to make a fair rate of inter  est on Ms investment; if the large IMtckers undertake to run the government out of the business, they can only do so by paying h gh prices for hogs, by selling meat at very lov prices, or by combining both; in any event the country at large will be reaping the benefits, and even though the government plant he idle one half its time, if 4t secures fair prices to producers nnd consumers alike it will be one of the- licst in vestments the province can make. From some quarters there had come predictions that the evidence would fall to show anything serious ly wrong with.the cattle and meat trade; that the farmers would ** Indifferent to the proceedings of the commission; that the present high prices woukl seriously Impair its usefulness and that those provinces which withdrew from the invesllgu tlon displayed greater* wisdom tlioti those which continued in it. Subsequent events show that those making such predictions were not in high prices. As to the Interest rflftn* Ifontcd In the proceedings, wo need but say that-the time of the corn-mishlot) was ns well taken up as that of any commission that evor sat In Alberta. Two days were allot/led to ICdmonlon, but a third was found necessary, and although every, mo  irtnnt of'time was utilised, many Important witnesses wore turned away unheard.
