Th^ Board of Trace last night held a short monthly meeting in the .board building. In the absence of the president and the vice-president, E. U. Ry-lands occupied the chair. The business considered by the meeting "was more or less routine, having to do mostly with the report from the board council and several resolutions submitted by the Associate Boards ot Trade. The board is still protesting against the ctancellatlon of the concurrence which existed prior to Jan. 15 between the CP. R. and the G. N. R. over the Coutts line. A largeJy signed petition was forwarded to Ottawa some time ago to the Board of Railway �Commissioners asking that the matter l>e taken up, and the Board has been advised that the question will conie before the commission on March 19. The council of the board also reported that they had in hand the bet-temlent of the road between Stirling and Montana Junction following along the railway line. The government has promised to investigate and put the road in good condition if found advisable to spend money in that direction, and if .this Is done the farmers south east of the city -will have much better connection with Lethbridge. . The board has also endorsed the central 'wool market proposition in which the South Alberta Wool Growers' association is interested. If the government will provide for �-'the proper Inspection and grading, of wool here, a large clearing warehouse will be established in .the city making it the central market for the wool clip which in future is expected to reach 1,000,000 pounds annually. For over a year the board has been agitating tor a. bridge over the Water-ten River in the vicinity of Waterton Lakes so that Lethbridge' people could reaeh the lukes in five hours by automobile. The meeting last night (decided to ask W. A. Buchanan, M.V,, to bring the matter to the notice of the .Dominion government under whose Jurisdiction .the proposed bridge would come. The boards ot trade of' the towns south of Lethbridge will be asked also to lend their support in having the bridge con structed. ' The motion passed by the executive of the Associate Boards last Monday dealing with the opening �of post-ofUces for fwo hours on Sunday yras endorsed, and the proviso added, that If the nadtlon Is in contravention of the Lord's Day Act, the act be amended so that post offices could remain open on Sunday It the residents Ot any district so desired. The campaign for the reduction of coal rates into Saskatchewan and Manitoba was also discussed at length, and the resolution of the Associate Boards endorsed. This matter is iA the hands of M. K. Cowan, K.C, who will shortly appear before the Board of Railway Commissioners asking'for a reduction on freight rates on western railway lines.

P. R. mines in some Instances. It �wias also stated that weights were not received by the purchasers, although it was pointed out that the latter would be furnished on application. In the matter of the quality of the coal it was decldied to refer the complaint to the mining section of the beard to be dealt with before the next monthly �meeting. .-4 ii -Mi E FIfiHT CAlieUS'DEClDES TO DEMAND RE--j-DISTRIBUTfON AND FAIR '  * PLAV p FOR PEOPLE Y'^ '^Ottawa, Feb. 21.-"We are going on 'J. -�with the fight:- along th'e lines uidicat-f\ .'eBj-'lri Sir Wilfrid Laurier'a amend-/ ^ meat'to the government naval propos-.als ^nd,.al8o as indicated in the am^hmept tjow before the house call-ipriiairedistribatlon- and submls-ith'e' question .to the people."
