Fairfield of the Kxperi-mental Farm were present, shows ;vhat tlie sheepmen of Southern Alberts, think about the free entry of Breeding sheep from the t nited States :o Canada which was made possible Dy one of the first orders signed by :Ion. A. L. Sifton after taking office ,n the Dominion government. The members of the association are in fa-ror of the free entry of breeding .sheep but they are not in favor of allowing L\S. ranchers to drive their flocks to Canadian ranges for summer feeding *nd then returning them to the ranges, nor are they in favor of allowing the sheep speculator to use :he Canadian ranges for bringing icross sheep for purely speculative purposes. The resolution provoked tome acrimonious discussion at times. Better Police Protection Better police protection is desired by the farmers and ranchers than is being given by the provincial force. This was the subject, of a resolution, it was stated tn support of the resolution that recently at Brooks a bunch af enraged farmers and sow men threatened one of Jesse Taylor's sheep herders and made him turn back with a band of sheep he was driving. An* jther member of t^e association told of a provincial policeman who bad been ehas'ised for spending for lise capture of a lw>rse thief and ;old revor to do it again. The ivs/.uuon follows: Whereas the taking over of provincial police M-rvn c by tli.' government of Alberta has resulted in some outlying districts not reeciv;-:g the pu.iee protection formerly enjoyed; And whereas the farmers, '/anchors and y.hvepmen have Miuvmi looses i nrough f he same : And whereas it is expedient .hat belter police protection should be given the farmers, ranchers a,.d sluvpmeu: Resolved that a petition be ;'or pounds in a single deck car. And whereas two deck cars are seldom available. Resolved that the Hoard of Railway Commissioners be petitioned to have the minimum reduced to UV�'>o pounds in lieu of liJ.000 pounds. Carried. The association is going after the opening up of more forest reserves in the mountains for summer grazing of sheep. They will also ask the C.V.U. for the special rate both ways and for loading conveniences at the point of debarkation in the mountains. In connection with summer range, Mr. Stevens stated that the Dominion government is looking at the sheep industry with a different attitude than a few years ago, and are much more favorably inclined to do something to help the sheepmen to secure the necessary range for their increasing bands. The appointment of a permanent secretary was also discussed but was left over to the annua! meeting in March. Standard bags for shipping -wool, coyote bounties and other matters of interest to the sheepmen were discussed and win be finally disposed of at the annual meeting.

All our peopla are hoping that 191S again come and bring who have joined up. At their usual weekly meeting of the local K. P. Lodge held on IVodnes-day evening it was decided to open the new hall on January 25. The hall, will be thirty-four by sixty-four feet with the main entrance facing south onto Main street. As one enters the building one goes into an arched porch ten feet win*a which leads on the left to two ante rooms and then into the main hall. On the right there will be another entrance to the main hall approached through two doors and again to the right of this entrance will be a dressing room the entrance to which will be from the main hall itself. At the rear there will be a stage with a depth of 12 feet and a frontage of IS. The outside front will be battle-rented and above the entrance will be another panel in which will be set in has relief 3ome suitable emblem indicative of the Pythian order. The order has already shown itself as a power in Nobleford, not only as a fraternal order but in the social and business life of the town, and it Is hoped by all that there will be a large turnout of members at the opening cersmonie.-. School begins on Monday in the new building and the trustnas have succeeded in securing the services of Mr. Pike who will takth. tub and 7th, to which your association has been allotted three delegates, which comprise the largest delegation from any one association except Ontario, representation being fixed on the basis of volume of business. One delegate from each of the other associations in Alberta has been selected. Of course, as many other members of your association as may possibly come at their own expense or at the expanse of the association will be acceptable and will induce interest m the proceedings. Objects of Company The objects of such a company may be outlined briefly as followsFirst, Co-operative purchase ut supplies required by the shepherd 01' farmer including besides dips, twine and wool sacking, etc., fence wire and other products of this nature. Second-Co-operative selling of wool providing permanent means of storage funning a connection for the combing lengths with Boston and Great Britain. Third-Operation of scouring and carbonizing for carding lengths of wool which will place this class in a condition that can le used by all Canadian manufacturers except some knitters. Fourth-If necessary, should an American embargo or tariff partially or whollv close this market for the comb-ing lengths the establishment of a combing industry and manufacture of tops for sale to knitting mills in this country. Fifth-Handling on the commission basis of sheep and lambs at the abattoir centres in both Western and Eastern Canada. Sixth-This feature is a crying one in some sections especially in Leth-bridge and the Maritime proviuces. It is something1 which' cannot be undertaken without deliberate thought and therefore cannot be settled positively at a meeting of the company but should be included in its charter, that if the company becomes sufficiently strong it might undertake the operation of co-operative abattoirs at these points. A Sheep Journal Seventh-The publication of a journal pertaining to feature* interesting to the Canadian sheep raiser. At the present time there-is no such paper and the sheepman Is. therefore, left, more or less, in the dark as to what is occurring in the prices of wool and mutton and pelts. r Eighth-To serve as the voice of the sheep raisers in political, economic and social institutions a co-ordination of effort will result in greater strength of obtaining representation in the nation's affairs. I may say in this connection that a company organized on a purely co- r operative basis would, have the good will of the Dominion department of agriculture, which would bear toward it a most paternal attitude providing its books were maintained open to the inspection of the government. This, [ believe, should give confidence to the sheep raiser of the integrity of such a company and moreover would give to it a strength that would preserve it on a successful basis. g Fifteen Directors Fifteen directors, according to the company's act, only can be provided. The proposal thus far is to allot them in something of the following fashion which would be most truly representative of the sheep population of the different provinces-i\K.l. one, NB. one, X.S. one, Quebec two, Ontario three, Manitoba one, Saskatchewan two, Alberta three, B.C. one. This, I may say from what I have learned, would be satisfactory to the Eastern provinces. Some difficulty will undoubtedly ensue at the organization meeting to subscribe or have insurance of subscription of sufficient amount of stock to place the company on a business plan and enable it to commence operation early in March without financial embarrassment. A subscription of one hundred thousand dollars will be necessary at that time. Twenty per cent, of this at least should be paid up. This may be overcome to some degree by the delegates from an association obtaining the assurance from their members as to the amount of steel- they would be willing to subscribe at the initial meeting if necessary providing the association as a whole is desirous of entering and pursuing business through such a company. Please bear in mind that tjie character of such an organization should be threshed out by yourselves and your own ideas incorporated in it. The bylaws, as presented to y&u, are by no means perfect yet. You may want to make many changes yourselves and at a three days' meeting, and perhaps longer, the brightest intellects being present from each and every wool selling association in Canada I have not the faintest doubt but what an effective and useful organization'will bo attained that will prove to real advantage to the sheep raisers of Canada. Yours faithi'ullv, T. It KG ARKFLL, Chief, Sheep and Goat /division.
