It will then b left to that body to sec what they ca do One industry which Lelhbridg should get In the near future is a alfalfa mill. A C.P.R. official enquire about this the other day while mal ing a visit to tile city. .Mr. Lathro stated that the Farm Products Co had the matter under consideratio and three or four of the members, a a private enterprise, were considering the purchase, of a small machine, b} way of a start. If the experimen proves succKsful, as they expect I will, the company will likely take i further. They are now in commtini cation with the- Great Palls Co., oh lainiug the necessary information to handle tile whole -scheme in a business- like way. Hut if Lethurldgc wants industries there is one other thing needed quite as .badly. The hoard commented on the fact that the C. P. Telegraph Co is doubling its direct line to Calgary from Winnipeg. Lethbridge is off on i side track and the request of this city for a direct, line to Swift Current, hus giving direct connections 'with Winnipeg, seems to have been ignored l.olhbrldgo wants and needs this ill reel communication, ami tho fooari does not Intend to let Hie company forget that tad. A letter was read from Killam merchant to an eastern concern com- plaining of the car congestion in the west and bewailing the fact that the hanks do not lend money on grain In the granaries of tho farmers. A copy of this letter was sent lo the local board, but the concensus of opinion at he meeting was that I ho transpori- tticn companies, in Southern Alborla it least had done, remnrkahlv well his fall In moving the- crop, and they horcfore did not support ention of the northern man regarding he car congestion. The hoard won! ike to see tile hanks lend nioiH-y ,o grain, but no action was taken owin o the fact that an amendment to th Bank Act is before Ihe Domiino ousp for consideration al thy preset! ession. The fate of the Southern Alberta SEOciated Hoards of Trailc was an (her matter for discussion and couplet tth this was the outlook for finaiicins, ie local board during the next year seems to be unanimous among the embers of the executive that the local .board should he self-supporting provided they are not required to car ry on advertising and industrial mat- ters. As these are to be undertaken by the council In 1913 the hoard feeL that it will be able to confine'itself to purely trade matters. The matter was discussed pro and con, so that they might know on how much rev- enue they could depend next year, and if this revenue would support both tho expense of the local board and the ap- iropriation for the associated .hoards. In cutting down the expense of the ocal board it has been suggested that hey combine with the flusiness Men's Association, so that onc secretary handle the work of both and )IBce rent wbuld be eliminated. Therc re many difficulties in the way of uch an amalgamation, hut there are Iso many advantages to be derived y both A committee vas therefore, appointed comprising tessrs. Turner, Horne and Stafford to upon the Business Men's assocla- on executive and try to arrive at ome solution of the. matter. As for the Associated Boards, it as decided that Lethbridge could III lord to weaken that organization by riy withdrawal, and n letter is being ent to all the boards affiliated, stat- S that Lethbridge favor of i intinuauce and also for a contin ion of the services of, a -pcrmanen cretary. As 24 out. of 2S hoards hai ready signified their intention of r aining in the association for Ifil e action of the local board seems I licate that the Associated Board 11 be an active body again nex However, the question of a pai cretary will not he definitely settled til the Associated Boards' executive eting in Lethbridge on Dec. 30th.
