The slow progress a long the centre aisle occupied more tlian ten minutes, during which time the iimucnsc audience remained .standing and all the Salvation soldiers were at salute. TJio vnstncss of Lhc Olympia made it impossible to conduct the service by word of mouth. More than half of its 33 numbers, however, were fa- miliar salvation songs which the many thousand voiced chorus sang with a mighty volume of song and with militant earnestness.

WILL NOT BE MADE AN ORDER POINT That Request is Dropped at the Commissioners' Suggestion ProKerinc the advice that the Leth- hridge Board oE should lose no time in preparing the strongest pos- sible presentation of -their, case In favor of establishing- Lethbridge a grain .inspection point, taking into conilderatlon particularly the features of the argument brought out at the session, the board of Grain Com- missioners closed their conference hero late yesterday afternoon after hearing evidence in tiebaU of Leth- bridge's claim, and asking a. multi- tude of questions prompted by their desire to gather all the svid-enco pos- siblc bearing on both sides of the case. Incidentally, the question of creat- ing Lethbridge an order point at this time TVRB practically dropped, the rea- son being in the first place the Board Trade had not asked, for auch a concession, .but more partic- ularly because it was found out dur- ing -the discussion that the delay In transportation of cars here, if an or- der point were established, would ue of such duration as would militate againsL the consideration of the prin- cipal wish to become an Inspection point. Decision In .October No decision, on the application of tho Board of Trade In this matter may be expected for some time. The re-drafted application -will he proffer- ed nnd forwarded Immediately. The commissioners In the meantime will It and Uke It up with thft Hallway Commission, who 'will have lo give tho neccsBiiry order compcll- earn (o atop hero for inspection Jn O Hie nppllcation IB favorably con- sidered; then In October tlic Board of i Grain Comwlsiloncru will git lu Win- nipeg when representatives from Hie Board of Trade will again wait upon a short conference; afler that the commijjbion mate its recommendation -io the government, and action will be taken. The result will not therefore be known until late Jn October at the earlient. Yesterday attci'noon's session was not a lengthy one, the commission com jjleting Its labors here at six o'clock. ft was taken up mostly with 'the an- swers to the questions asked in the morniug session .which the Board bf Trade was not then in a. position lo answer. Small Parentage Goci Wett, Regarding the query as to Itoo num- ber of cars of grain routed west from this assembly point, H wua learned tuiit lust year not 'more Uun 100 cars were shipped west; that is less than one per cein. Tho chalriiimi, on considering th iuCoruiaticm, was opinion Vh: so far us 'the western movement grain was coucemed, It had liftle I do with the case1 at ihe present tim Mr. IVCB stated- thiC-t th western movement ol" grain was me 'iioncd in the application 'merely the sol- strengthen althoug it is readily understood Unit wneji th Panama CamU opens, the whole iren of truffle from the prulrie province would be revoLutioimetl. "Order Point'f Dropped It ihe westward movement, grain were dropped, from -tirgu iiwnt for rho time beiujj. tne cominib siouers thought thai it would upt necessary to consider the question o establishing Lethbridge as an orde uoliit. IX'es said thai he had no been pressing taat point, and if would stand iu the way of the gran ing of the application It would b dropped for the present. To get gral Inspection close io the farmer va what the board was after; the othe n'ould follow in tho natural course o However, he would not lik tlie ccrrimiiHioiiers to iose sight of th. fact that within a couple of years Th western movement of grain woul place a different complexion on tb whole question, and a broad view o the application should be taken now. Inspection Causes Little Delay The Board oC Trade during tlie re cess had also .gathered expert infor ma'tion as to .the length of time i would take to handle a cue here for Inspection and re-shipment, in case Lethbridge were both an order and an inspection .point. Opinions it was agreed laat the beat that could b-c done would gel. cars undei vrny in 2-t hours after arrival hore, Forty-eight hours was thought to be more nearly correct. This would re- quire a large increase in trackage in (he yards 'to handle '8000 or cars during the season, but the Infor- mation received was to the effect that after the grain began lo move there would always be enough cars arriving in the vard to ke-ei> the movement steady, and not to seriously congest traffic. Then it was discussed as lo "wheth- er mere inspection of grain here without considering the question o! re- bllllng would cause a long d< lay. The shipper could then get his grading for the car. within a .few services had The destruction of the houte fly is a public duty.

The "whole matter Uinn resolved It- self into this: If Lethbridge is an or- der point there wiJl 'be long delays if Lethhridgc is merely an inspection point there will not be longer delays than at present.
