Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 15, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta �W*m1h cents and 50 cents in Lethbridge' and Calgary. "This is ono instance of advance in price* which cannot be laid at the door of thp (.'. P. H., as the express rates to ell her city on shipments of j eggs or butter is not at all out of the way. "It looks as If that individual known as 'the middleman' is responsible for flip difference In price between that received by the farmer, and Hint, paid by the consumers of the two oilier; named. And that, "middleman" Is not the retail merchant who buys the produce from the farmer, either. To find out the cause of tlio wide difference, Tue Sun Interviewed the merchants of C-irmangay about the matter, and was Informed that they regulate their prices Pa'd for butter and eggB on the supply coming in and the demand locally, paying the farmer the same price as they receive from the local consumer. They claim that when they take in more butter and eggs than they can dispose of locally, they are very apt to lose money by shipping the surplus to either Calgary or Lethbridge. For if they ship to either city it is the same buyer they sell to, and this btiyor, having a monopoly of the business, can dictate the, price to be paid t.lif ] local merchant. For instance, if a1 iucal merchant ships, say 500 pounds of butler, for which he paid 25 cents per pound, he get:; a!! th" way from 2:. cents down to IS cents a pound for it, as it is graded Nos. 1, 2 and :;, and it is sale to say that the percentage of No. 1 Is very small when there is no competition. "If the consumers in the cities were �buying these products at a reasonable advance over the price received by the farmer who produced them, there would be no serious objection, but when the price paid 'by the consumer Is nearly double, and sometimes more, (ban that paid the farmer, there is every reason for complaint. There are only two remedies that we can see for the conditions as they exist, and one is to have a commission merchant in each of the cities that would be willing to handle these, and other products of the -faI'm, at a'small figure, or have the government erect cold storage plants In the centres of population in the province, where' the products could be bandied and sold to the consumer at a fair price. "Home people will say that It is not the duty of the government to in-! lerfere in such matters, but roe can' sue no reason Cor this argument. The government is elected to safeguard the interests of the people, arid if It is not their duty to s*ep in and stop this hold-up game being carried on by' "the middlemen," whose duty Is it?" , . Good Progress Made-Secretary Irving and Staff Making Institution Count A THREE BRIGHT BUSINESS MEN WHO WILL RAISE IT TO TOWN STATUS Vulcan, Jan. I-J.-The election of the first council for Vulcan was not lacking in excitement. Thc electors on the north side of Vulcan street, who had two men in the field were determined both should bo elected, employing the usual election war-cries and tactics, while the attitude of the electors on the south aide of. Vulcan >treet, who bad three men in the field �was marked by a singular indifference which might almost be'.classed as dis-interested citizenship.'Jt is practically a certainty, however, that all those who had a right to exercise the franchise did so, and rumor has it that a number voted, who had no right. When the ballots 'were finally counted it was found that E. M. Clark, 15. J. Charters and F. A. Elves were elected. Upon these three councillors falls a great responsibility, as the town should long ago have had a controlling municipal body to attend to the many necessary local improvements, chief of which will probably be the building of side-walks, and forming a systematic fire protection. The W. E. and L... S,. Radial railway has patched up its differences with Leamington council,  and will move its tracks to the centre of Eve street and operate a summer..bus service to the lake. There was every cause for feeling good at (he annual inditing of thv Voting Men's I'hrisi.imi Association last, night. TI.v reports snowed progress of a most, gratifying character and the 'xprrss-ioiis of approval were cordial and sincere. The treasurer's report showed a. decided gain brought about by increased ctlickucy in management, and at the directors' meeting Mr. Nourse, treasurer, expressed the hearties, pleasure, at the showing made. He thought Secretary Irving and his associates were deserving of the highest praise. From a bank manager's standpoint Ihe showing was very satisfactory. Whereas in 1911 there was a deficit on running expenses of over !$900, in J it 12 there was a surplus of over ?140o If it were not for the heavy interest charges the association would be In an easy position, and an effort will probably be made when the times brighten to wipe out, or largely reduce the debt. The association would then be able to do a much wider work. I>r. Galbraiih, the hard working president, presided last night and the various reports were read by A. J. Irving, the general secretary, after the reading of the minutes by the recording secretary, R. P. Wallace. The report of the president of the board of directors as read by Mr. Irving was as follows: W'o beg to submit the annual report for rh'e Lethbridge Young Men's Christian Association for the twelve months ended December 31, 1912: RELIGIOCH WORK-Sunday mens' meetings.-During the year M Sunday mens' meetings have been held with a total attendance of 711.
