At this point -Mr. Turner trained his guns on the Hoard ol Trade and Industrial Com- missioner. Moffatl was to receive the charge, which on in evening was nullified. Although lie had noticed In Hit Spectator that the Commissioner had sent letters to the different agricultural bodies throughout the- district in relerence tc the establishment of a market for the fanners, the Haxelmcrc associa- tion had received no such letter and its members were as yet in ipaorance of the steps the board had taken to provide for thfiii a market. Going back la the market question Jlr. .Turner announced that the -liazel- nievc farmers'.ijxrc anxious to engage in mixed but Ihe truth o! the situation. was.' that they had b-jient all their money in agricultural machinery and therefore not in n posjtion to switch. llou'ever, they iverc going lo. do .what they could anil L'e'gin, ii in a small nay and then gradually increase. The eaker explained the aims and ob- Ir. retorted Mr. man who camp to me (or as- has got it-. All my confreres --iMacleod, Messrs'. Urey, Mcltea and Proud have been ready to assist, too, kod have done so in all deserving cases." Mr. Long here arose and endorsed what bad been said by Mr. Allen and added that it was only right lor the binks to cake precautions considering that plenty of moaer could lost in cattle just as it could In wheat, and nha't was more, lots of money had been lost before the.settlers ever vent into tanning at aM. Mr. Allen thanked the prominent llazelmerelau lor his cndorsatton and threw a little more light on his po- sition by saying that in taking pre- cautions he was protecting not the i bank's money but the money of the depositors. re-inforcement came, to Mr. Allen in the person of Mr. Steii- SOR, a prominent farmer pi the dis- trict, xUio assured 'his- hearers that' the cattle brought in- by the Hoard of Trade were good in every particu- lar. He himself h'ad bought two and just at present he wouldn't take less that 1125 for theni and in. addition he hail now a heifer calf that was valuable. Mr. Allen concluded, after all questions had been asked, by staV ing that he was on, hand to help and oj.k.inLi lApiuiiiL-u iiiu unua ,iuu iju- ing uiafc lie wai on nanu 10 r.eip ana jrcts.

Going on then io speak oi the North Ba'ttle'iord association, .Mr. Moffatt said that he had intend- ed to-outline its policy to the meet- iug, but In anticipating" him, Mr. Turner had stolen his thunder. To Mr.' Turner's address he might- add, however, that'in Battleford the farm- ers were going extensively into hog iu" 1311 there were in the district- which number had been increased in 1912 to'. esti- mate for 1313 bad not heeri made but it would iodeed show substantial increase. t" iMr.'jioflatt liere leferred to thi ill- feeling that had.sujvq'sSidly existed 'it .wasr that the -----_-s of had not always been follpw.-thijr ih- cl inat ions' and' HazVlrne re as hiye'-wiined.. lie 1 hen -.plugged., a.t intq saying'. in- Board he had organizations througho'u'tVtiie..country tb'find out would assist' in (_ m'ari1 who would ol and.thereby pro- constahl Long asked ..'if." the M Bn.ird ol .Tvradeimade of it, on being told by Mr. 1 len rliat they did not but that they lost tho that he such to be the case, but that he wanted the matter aired lor the MaW of those present. j that file purchase lot. flic cattle shouidUiavc been above as.'the-lton.
