The petition js signed by Attorney-General Wickcrsham, Jatnes A. Fowler; assistant to the attorneyrgeneral,. and U. S. Attorney James* H'. Wilk-erson, of Chicago. - ' Chicago, Feb. 11. - The Chicago Board of Trade, the' great grain exchange of the United- States, -was charged by the Federal government in a civil anti-trust suit Jlled here today, with violation of the Sherman law by arbitrarily fixing during the hours the exchange is closed, the prices of wheat, corn, oats and rye, to be received in Chicago. The government's .petition.'in e^juity asks the United, States district court for a temporary�>�restraining order to-be followed, after final hearing, with a; permanent  injunction prohibiting the fifteen hundred, and more members of-the board from continuing an alleged unlawful conspiracy to destroy competition and-restrain inter-state commerce, Grain bought by members of the board prior to its shipments or while-in transit to Chicago is designated the .-.petition pointsr out, as grain "to. arrive": immediately after the close of each day's session, the Board of Trade under -its rulos establishes a; public "call", for .corn, oats, wheat and rye, to arrive," by which the government alleges: the exchange abso-r lutely fixes the price to be offered for such staples from all parts of the country^ contracted for from the closing hour to the opening, the following day. As the board:is open less than four hours or only one-half of the ordinary business�(day,-it is declared that tnese fixed prices control the bids ;of grain dealers for-the other half of the. business'day. The rule has : resulted, it is charged, in a conspiracy and combination to prevent competition. According to the petition the GE WHICH C. P. R.

'" aay in Magrath, Feb. 10.-The- war now go* ing on between the P. Burns Co. of Calgary and the Prince RupE-rt Packing Co. for the meat of Southern Alberta is causing a noticeable increase In price, say farmers who sell regu-, larly -to- those competing companies. Both houslss are after the hogs of the Southern Alberta farmer, and they are both equally determined to win his confidence and business. Which 'will' win is immaterial to the district so long as the farmers are getting a good price for their hogs and beef, j The Magrath district is now producing a great deal of pork and beef, especially -pork, and the farmers are I not slow in commending the efforts of the Lethbridge boaTd of trade in regard to the establishment of a soa- hie r and- -permajaent; .market, for. -.their produce. , Increased competition (ha� brought ths- desired result, and the industry has received great stimulation during the paEt two months. This year hogs Will occupy the same level with wheat on the majority of- Magrath farms. Forty prominent  men of splendid standing in this community have signed the1 charter asking for the instal-, latio'n of an Oddfellows lodge in Magrath, and when the charter is accept ed at I. O. O. F. headquarters at G&l- ga-ry and ratified at' the forthcoralsg conference to be held in that city, District Deputy Grand Master R. A., Gillies of Raymond will install .the lodge which will smash the provincial- record for country lodges. It . will �have more members at the first inr stallation than m>any lodges have after, years of activity; all of .-which. speaks volumes for the promoters of the scheme. There are about twenty old time: Oddfellows in Magrath, many ot whom are now affiliated with-' the; thriving Raymond lodge. For,-some time past there has been a quiet agK, tation in progress here, led by Wm. Butchart, a live member of the order, and out of, tbat agitation will uot> doubtedly grow one of the largest and; healthiest lodges in Alberta. While it is, not known : definitely. where the lodge rooms will be,'your correspondent is informed that'Jensen Brothers Co. have� offered to i'urnish a portion of the upstairs floor space of their store for this purpose.-"Probr ably these apartments will be,'leased: for a time, but eventually the'localibf the buyers the horse market is as been received for the first of a series of socials to he given by the Sugar City lodge. The affair which promises to be a most delightful one, will be held in. the bright, spacious lodge rooms on Broadway, and a large party from Magrath 'will be among the throng of participants. C. C. Jenseli returned home from the Samoan Islands last Saturday evening after a year's absence. Mr. Jensen has been president of thfa Mormon mission in that archipelago during that time, and would have remained such for another year or two more had not continued Illness necessitated his removal home. The intense heat of the tropics, coupled with long- voyages on the ocean in the rocking boats of these seas required of him as president of the mission, proved too much for Mr! Jensen, and it was thought best by the authorities at Salt Lake to honorably release him. Several years'ago Mr. Jensen fulfilled a three.' years' mission to those- islands, and .did an exception-,ally effective, worlt-among the natives. -His fluent comma^]ottthe ianguagej and his-unusual"powers''over the na3 Uvea who learned to. love him very deaz'lyy, attracted the notice: of his 'superiors with the result that he was again called into the service on the -ifelands this time as president. � Mr.'> Jensen is one of  Magrath's most .influential citizens and boosters, and everyone is giving him a royal welcome home. He was mayor of the town for two terms and president of .the board for a number of yearn- Mr. Jensen believes that he will soon be well again in the more healthful and invigorating atmosphere of the Dominion. ,. f, i Old-timers predict an early spring. �� The -weather of the past few days .certainly feels like a. 'change had taken place, and it is probable that :tbeir ideas are not far short of being true. The farmers are hoping so any-,way, as- they are anxious to get at i their work after so long a rest. There :.has;beeii plenty of snow -this winter, � and everything is promising for a goodryear for Southern Alberta. ^:\Tihe market for horses is growing: � stronger, every day, and horsemen 'Claim that this spring will see farm .anjmalB'selling at an uncommonly, il&rge -figure. Several buyers are said ;tb\'Be, planning regular-visits to Magrath.: as the point is known far and .Wide as'the horse centre of the south Country. i R.

Mr. Bradshaw. will probably bring in his annual iHpring shipment o� pure breds about April or May., LONDON IS WEARY OF CANUCK LOANS London, Feb. 11.-A question to a certain, well known financier by a representative of the Canadian Associated Press today as to when the city- of Montreal's new issue might be expected, brought ai reply, the more sincere perhaps because it was unguarded : "Montreal ought to know better," The financial press here has .
