Another resolution, which follows, the above vesolulion, passed at Frl-j jQ"(j"ig'.^'ufi the matter of the minimum lay's meeting of the South Alberta I carloads of sheep, asking for a re- Wool Growers' association, at which.....----- lonnn nnimris- ibout fifty members, and W. F. Stcv-ins and Supt. Fairfield of the Experimental Farm were present, shows what the sheepmen of Southern Al-aerta think about the free entry of breeding sheep from the United States :d Canada which was made possible by one of the first orders signed by Hon. A. L. Sifton after taking office in Uie Dominion government. The cnemhers ot the association are in fa-ror of the free ehtry of breeding sheep but they are not in favor of allowing U.S. ranchers to drive their .flocks to Canadian ranges for summer feeding ind then returning them to the U^. ranges, nor are they in favor ot allowing the' sheep speculator to use the Canadian ranges for bringing icross sheep for purely speculative purposes. The resolution provoked lome acrimonious discussion at times. Better Police Protection Better.-police protection is desired by the farmers anri ranchers than is being given by the provincial force. This was the subject ot a resolution. It was stated In support of the resolution that recenlly at Brooks a ,bunch ot enraged farmers and sow men threatened one of Jesse Taylor's sheep herders and made him turn back with i band of sheep he was driving. An-ather member ot tlie association told uf a: provincial policeman who had ductlon from 16,000'to 12,000 pounds: Whereas, by the railway tariff the minimum weight per car for shipment of sheep is 16,000 pounds. And whereas It is Impossible to load more than 12,000 pounds in a single deck car, And whereas two deck cars are seldom available. Resolved that the Board of Railway Cohimissloners be petitioned to have the mlnimtim reduced to 12.000 pbunds in Heu of 16,000 pounds. Carried. The association is going after the opening up of more lorest reserves in tlie mountains for summer grazing of sheep. They will also,ask the C.P.R. for the special rate both ways and for loading coiivenlences at the point ot debarkation in the mountains. In con-neiitloh with summer range, >Ir. Stevens .stated that the Dominion govern ment is looking at the sheep Industry with a different attitude than a tew years ago, and are much more favor ably inclined to do something to help the sheepmen to secure the necessary range tor their increasing bands. The appointment of a permanent secretary was also discussed but was left over, to the annual meeting In JIarch. Standard bags for shipping �wool, coyote bounties and other matters df interest to the sheepmen were dlscuftsed and will be finally disposed ot at the annual meeting.

All our iieopla are hoping tiiat 1918 will see peace again come and bring home the boys who have joined up. At their usual weekly meeting ot the local K. P. Lodge hold on Wednesday evening it was decided to open the new hall on January 25. The hall will be thirty-tour 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 Ipet wide which', loads 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 froih the-maln hall itself. At the rear there will be a stage with a depth ot 12 feet and a frontage ot IS. The outside front -will he battlerented and above the entrance will be an other panel in which' will be sot In bas Telief some suitable embrem In dlcatlve ot the Pythian order. The order has already shown itself as a power In Nobleford, not only as a tra ternal order but in -the social and business Ufa ot the town, and It is hoped by all that thbre will be a large turnout ot members i at the opening cersmonles. ^  School begins on Jlonday in the now building and the trustees have suC' ceeded In securing the services ot Mr. Pike who will take charge of the older grado,s and\act as principal, while the present teacher, Miss Mcintosh, will have charge of the younger children.

All Olad To Join I tool that from what 1 htlvo learned a great majority of all tho provinces now pursuing co-operative selling of wool will embrace such a movement be glad lo join In the conference to bo held In Toronto, February Oth, 6th and Tth, to which your association has been allotted three dologates, which comprise t^e largest delegation from any one association except Ontario, representation being fixed on the basis Msvolnme of business. One delegate from each of the other ossociatlons In Alberta has been ^ iected. Of course, as many other members ot your assoctEtion as may possibly come, at their own expense or at the expense of- the association will be acceptable and will induce interest In the proceedings. Objects' of Company Tlie objects ot such a company may be outlined briefly as follows:-First, Co-operative purchase ot supplies ro quired 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 ot wool providing permanent means ot storage forming a connection for the combing lengths with Boston and Great Britain. Third-Operation ot scouring and carbonizing for carding lengths ot wool which will place this class in a condition that can be used by all Canadian manufacturers except some knitters. - Fourth-It necessary, should an #Lm-orican embargo or'tariff partially or wholly close this market for the combing lengths the establishment of a combing Industry Jind manufacture ot tops for sale to knHting mills in this country. Fifth-Handling on the commission basis ot sheep and lambs at the abattoir centres in both Western and Eastern Canada. Sixth-This feature la a crying one in some sections especially in Leth-brldge and the j^laritlme provinces. It is something which?cannot be undertaken without deliberate thought and therefore cannot .be: settled positively at a meeting ot fhe company but should be Included in Us charter, that If the company becomes sufficiently strong it might undertake the operation ot co-operatlve4�battolrs at these points. ..I A Sheep Journal Seventh-Thft pnMlcation of a journal pertaining to features interesting to the Canadian sheep raiser.' At the present time iheroiis 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 niutton and pells. " '  Eighth-To serve as the voice of the sheep ralsdM in pdlltfctri, economic and social institutions a co-ordination of effort will result In greater strength of obtaining representation ia the nation's ' affairs. (.:  1 may say in this Minnectlbn that a company organizeii^^ oh i^* purely cooperative "basis wQUl4^ 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, I believe, should give confidence to the sheep raiser of the integrity ot such a company and moreover would give, to it a strength that would preserve It on a successful basis. ^ 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 tashlon which would be most truly representative ot the sheep populaHon ot the different provinces-P.E.I, one, N.B. one, N.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 orgaaization ipeetjng to eub-scribe or have insurance bt subscription ot sufficient amount ot stock' to place the company on a business plan and enable it to commence operation early in March without financial em-balfrassment. A subscription of one hundred thousand dollars will be ue-ceasary at that - time. Twenty per cent, ot this at Iqast should be paid up. This may bo overcome to some degree by the delegates from an association obtaining theassUranoe from thoir members as to the amouqt ot stock they would be willing;to subscribe at the Initial meeting it neoes-.sary -providing the association as a whole is desirous Of-entering and pursuing business thrpuglj^.auch a company. � ' �'- ' Please bear In mind'that the character of'euch an organlifatlon should be threshed out by yourtoveis; and your own ideas Ineorporateil'.ln U. The by-lan(s, as presented to' y6u, are by no mea^a perfect yet. You'may want to roaWe many changes yourselves i\nd at a three days' meeting,, and perhaps longer, the brightest intellects being present from each and every wool selling association In Canada.I have tvot the falptest'doubt but what an effqpt-Ive and useful organlzatlon'^iU be at-Tained that' will,- prove to real advantage to the sheep raisers bt Canada. Yoiurs faithfully, T, RE9 ARKELL, Chief, Sheep and' Goat Division.
