For lust nigbt wna'fannerc' night with the Board Trade. ilere ars some of the things aUvo- last night: 1. A pork packing plant for Lelhbridge, 2. That the provincial govern- ment renew its offer to establish a pork -packing plant in any cen- tre where the farmers of the sur: rounding country will guarantee to provide 'marketable'hogs The packing plant of- fered would cost and the farmers in the south will supply the necessary hogs inside two years. 3. A grain inspection point for Lethbrffjge. 4. That the C. P. R. and the provincial government d-epart- incut of agriculture be asked to consider the .matter of encourag- ing the farmers in the breeding of hogs and cattle by shipping to Smith-am Alberta as many full blooded male animals as might be- ueenied necessary to accomplish that object. That is a big propaganda for any Boawl of Trade to endeavor to t ploit, but the local board believes the future of Southern Alberta as mixed farming community, and any- thing that can be done to aid the farmers.will most certainly bc.douc. The Farmer Member to the Fore The matter'of .the rais- ing of hogs was 'brought up again by O. T. Lathrop who has had the matter in hand for some time, and- several letters were read from farnvars show- ing their interest in the action of the board in following the question up. The. following Is a sample of the let- t-ers received: Dear Sir 1 see by the Herald ihati you are interesting yourself in an abattoir and cold storage .plant for LcUibVidgc. I sincn'dy hope you will he successful in your ef- forts. I see you have estimated Milk River 1200 hogs and that may fce a fair estimate for this year, hut yon can multiply that by four for 1313.

Can Grow the Hogs Southern Alberta will raise hogs this year: Next year the num- ber will be increased to and the next year the mark will be reached. the Market But what is the of raising hogs if there is no market for the product? How is that market to provided? Those important questions were an- swered in part by a letter from W? P. Stevens, live stock commissioner of the provincial government in which he mentioned the offer made by the department of.agriculture two years ago that the department would erect a packing plant in any dis- trict that would' guarantee to furnish annually hogs to keep the plant in operation. An. appropriation of was made at that time for that purpose, but as no district saw fit to go into the hog raising industry enough to warrant the government following out its promise the money was turned into the gen- eral account, and is not now avail- able. Will Ask Government Aid But, if the Lethbridge country will raise those hogs the provincial government, is going to be asked to renew their offer lime it is not1 going-to go-by without a taker. mads a grain Inspection point. The matter was discussed fully last meeting. Last, night G. W. Green, who has pthe matter in hand, stated that the farmers and the grain ex- changes both at CaJgary and Winni- peg were supporting the board in ask- ing for a grain inspection point here, and when the board of grain com- missioners meets here this month they will be met by a large body of farmers who will support Lethljridge's claim. Other boards of trade In the iouth are being asked for their sup- port also. Mr. Gi'een gave figures last night which sho'wed that about ten 'mill- ion bushels of grain.passed through Lethbridge last year. This year the i amount will be greater, but even at these figures, there were cars of grain which might have been in-j spected here. Fifty cents per car is :he inspection fee, so that it is seen :hat the Lethbridge inspection point f one were established, would pro ride the government with S5QOO more annually with which to defray the expenses of the office. None of these points will tie overlooked when the commissioners are being asked to consider Lethbridge as the prob- able inspection point for Southern Alberta. It Simply Muat Come Lethbridge wants a lot of things, among them a land titles office for the south. This matter has been mentioned through th-s press before. Lethbridge is not alone In its stand fcv a land titles office here. A. H. 'been touring the south meeting the Boards of-Trade in the different towns, and the Boards of Trade in Champion, Carniangay, Vul- can, .Creek, Jlagrath, That has been settled beyond qucs-j and Claresholm have all ex- iion, and the Board 'cf Trade knows! pressed their wish to have another of- that the farmers are standing behind tlvsm iu the" 'movement. No Doubt of Here is the proposition as Wieflj outlined by 0. T.' La'throp, himself practical farmer: Southern.Alberta is partly .irrigated. Irrigated farming and alfalfa go together; The south raises the best kind of barley. Alfalf and barley were especially made for hogs. Then if Southern Alberta can- not supply the government with 000 hogs annually for the operation of a pork packing plaint here, no-other district in Western Canada can, A. H. McKeo-wn, who has been tour- ing ihe south on matters connected with the land titles office for Leth- bridge, also stated that farmers all over the country were interested in tliis work oi the beard, and are ready tcf give their support, provided the; market Is assured, ami the farmers! are aided in getting on easy terms th-3 necessary stock to get a start In the industry. Ask C, P. R. to Help, Too The matter Is 'therefore to be taken up with both the department or agri fie established, meat of them mention- ing Lcthbriclg-c as the .most suitable point of location. Mr. .McKeown will continue hie work 'further during the and wiir living in'a full report, at the next meeting of the executive. A couple of railway matters were also on thg boards. The board is riot {satisfied iha-t Lethbridge is getting-a square deal iu the matter of settlei's' rates -from Spokane. The matter, was up for discussioa last week but was tabled. Tt was decided last night that R. G. JIcN'eillie, district passenger agent of the C. P.'II., should be asked to look into the matter and endeavor to rectify obvious inconsistencies which, exist in the rates from the west to Southern Alberta.
