COUNCIL WILL GET THE VIEWS OF THE At the Board of Trade council lun- cheon held in the Alexandra Cafe yes- terday afternoon, a telegram was read from the Edmonton Board of Trade asking the Lethbridge board to notify farmers and stockmen in the district that there is a heavy hay crop in the north country and that the Edmonton "board was willing to render any possible assistance in the matter of shipping live stock north, or shipping hay south. The president remarked that the people in the north appeared to have an entirely erroneous opinion of con- ditions in Southern Alberta. He re- cently received a letter from a party in Prince Albert asking whe- ther it was correct that cat- tle could be purchased here for and per head, as he had heard. If it was, he was coming down to buy some. Mr. Nourse said his re- NO SETTLEMENT OF COLUMBUS STRIKE Columbus', Ohio.

C. P. R. Live Stock Inspector McMullen, Mr. Nourse also said, told him a few days ago that hundreds of thousands of tons of hay are being cut up north with the ex- pectations of selling it in Southern Alberta for to S35 per ton, and scores of men are going to go broke on hay up there this year. T. S. remarked that hay was go- ing to be cheaper this year than last. It was decided to thank the Ed- monton board for its telegram and to add that there is no desire to ship cattle north, for they are being ship- ped east for (export. The deputy provincial minister of agriculture wrote acknowledging the board's communication concerning seed grain distribution, and saying that the matter would be referred to the minister immediately on his re- turn to the capital. Copies of a telegram sent by the board to the post office department at Ottawa and of correspondence fol- lowing the telegram in connection with the street nail delivery were passed around for perusal and filed. Need of Another Boiler Inspector Nat. Marshall, boiler inspector for: the Lethbridge district, wrote in re-! ply to a letter from the board, say-; ing that he is in the city the first Saturday of each month, but that it, was not his place to say whether his j district was covered tail for the department of public! works. A. Stafford thought there were, real grounds for the request that Mr. j Marshall be given an assistant. His district extends from the B. C. boun-j on the west to Saskatchewan on the east, and from the. International j boundary on the south to Granum on' the north, a territory too large en-! tirely for one man to cover satisiac-i torily.
