After sonic discus- Ion it was decided to adopt an arn- ndment to the foregoing resolution, read us follows: Moved by L. S. Oowe; seconded by N. Barker: Whereas, the working out of the emieux Act with regard to the set- ement of industrial strikes and labor roubles docs not meet the acut0 con- itlons which prevail in any parts of the Dominion when dis. utes between employer and employ- es arise where public utilities are iu- olved; Therefore be it resolved, that the ssociated Boards of Trade in Soutli- n Alberta in regular annual me.il- g assembled most urgently request Dominion parliament of Canada take immediate steps for the am- iding of the present act relating to j bor troubles, or tile passing of a! w act which will provide for the otcction of the consumers, pending amicable settlement when troubles of this kind arise. ngulnst a postal express service Is most advanced is that It would be very detrimental to the local merch- ant and would correspondingly boost the departmental store. Hut would not tho regulation of rates by zones largely obviate tills, for the large do. partment stores are usually in largo cities and towns, and the local stores In most cases 'would have the higher paree! rate In their favor which would enable them to compete in prices with the-department stores? Hcsldes this. In rural districts what is to prevent all merchants, whether big or little, or In towns or cities of varying sizes, from increasing their business by means of tlie small parcel quickly de- livered at a low rate. It would seem that an increased parcel post service, organized on the right lines, might be a great incentive to all' lines of business and doing no actual damage to anybody when regulated by clasfl- fication In zones." It was decided to havo copies of Mr. Barker's report printed and circulated throughout the various boards for their considera- tion. Hospital Patients A resolution, moved by Rev.

The ques- tion came up through the decision of the Macleod Board of Trade to with- draw from the association if the ex- penses next year Were as heavy as last year. p. H. Elton took a parting shot at the Macleod delegate who had said the secretary of the Associated Boards lad done little or nothing to advance the Interests of the board, which had salutary effect. A Deadlock The critical point in the convention arrived when B. N. Barker, the pre Idcnt, In answer to B.

Mr. Stewart with significance stated it was In the best interests of Alberta that there should be no division between north and south. On the contrary, it was ne- cessary that Alberta should stand united and go forward as a strong unit ever on -the lookout for the wel- fare of the entire province.
