O. ives at die helm and associated with'him a number of the brightest business men in the city the Lethbridge Board of Trade starts off in 1913 to be a real hoard of trade. There is no aspersion on the officers of other years in that remark. It ia simply that the intention has been expressed of running the board as a board of trade, and as the president-elect aptly remarked, there is no reason why it should not be one of the most dignified and Influential bodies In the city and province.

An Ideal location for a stock farm on the line of the new government automobile highway, now under construction. For price and terms write The Lund Land and Development Company, Limited WARDNER BRITISH COLUMBIA O. T. LATHROP Chairman-Elect of the Committee on Agriculture of the Board of Trade master General saw fit to rush the calling o�'tenders and the awarding of the contract for the new post office building, and the fact that the building has been under construction for some time is, therefore, in some measure due to the efforts of the board. The grain and milling section, early in the year, took up the matter of the creation of a Southern Alberta subdivision for the inspection of grain and the location of an inspector at Lethbridge. If this is obtained it will prove a great >>,oon to the farmers as well as to the\ty and grain interests in the city. Tn-o-ajidorsa-tion of our petition was ohtiuiftid from nearly all other boards of trade in the south and we appeared twice before the Grain Commission in regard to the matter. 1 am sorry that we are not in a position as yet to report the board's decision. Our old friend, the land titles office question, has again received much of the board's attention. Besides sending S. J. Shepherd as a delegate to wait upon the government last winter in connection with the matter, A. H. McKeown was authorized to visit all the boards in the south and obtain their endorsation of our campaign for the decentralization of the land titles business in the province. The boards in the south were almost unanimously in favor of decentralization and we have reason to 'believe that the government will in due time adopt the policy of decentralization which-'we are~io anxious to have put into effect. ' This report would not be complete without some reference to the Associate Boards of Trade of Southern Alberta. The board saw fit to remain with this organization and is the heaviest supporter of it in a financial �way, our dues last year amounting to $858. I think this expenditure must be regarded more in the light of a grant or assistance to the smaller boards of trade in Lethbridge's tributary territory who, of course, obtain the greatest benefit, the benefit accruing to Lethbridge being indirect. However, the association has been able to do many things which it is doubtful whether the Lethbridge Board of Trade would .have been able to do alone, the most important of these being the improve mail service along the C. and E. and Crow's Nept points. The International Dry Farming Congress upon which so much stress was laid in the last annual report has come and gone. There is no question but that the 'whole of Southern Alberta has benefited by the holding of this congress here. Time alone, however, can: tell what its benefits will be to Lethbridge'. If I inay be permitted to express a personal. opinion, it is that .the fact upon which we should congratulate ourselves most in. this connection is the .wonderful showing  made -by bur farmers at the congress and that' every one/of the hard winter wheat prizes was Southern Alberta,.- Delegates were sent to a. number of conventions during the ye'ar, chief of these being the Western-Canada Irrigation association and the Canadian Highway. Other conventions attended were the Panama- conference in Calgary, and-the conference of Western mayo'ts and Boards of Trade- at Regina  regarding industrial; development, �' The first naih-ed convention meets In Lethbridge; this summer and we are in line for the National Highway oonventJon in 1914. We have also extended an invitation to the United. Farmers of Alberta to hold their next cpnyention in Lethbridge, and we have every reason to hope that that organization will decide to do so. - During the year the Board of Trade offices were enlarged, by the city council, one halt of the cost being charged against the board. Besides being used by the board the Exhibition Board- have"1 offices, in the building, and fa ft a: great improvement both, from' the view- point- of appearance and from - the standpoint  of. ac-commpdatton for tne^ board. As president for the past two months and vice-president for ten months of*the year, I. wish to express my -personal thanks, for the co-operation and assistance of the executive and the (whole membership- in what work we b&ye, been able to do and Jo urge upon the membership to rea- WE ACT AS EXECUTOR AND TRUSTEE UNDER WILLS, LIQUIDATORS, ASSIGNEE, RECEIVER, GUARDIAN OF INFANTS, AND COMMITTEE OF LUNATICS, ETC., ETC, We undertake financial agencies of all kinds, superintend investments and collect dividends, interest and agreement payments.

MCKILLOP, President. Committee Reports' " The chairmen of committees then reported through the secretary, J. Li. Manwaring, as follows: Finance, Mr. Tinning; industries, A. B. Stafford: agriculture, O. T. Lathrop; entertainment, C. F. P. Conybeare; municipal, A. H. McKeown; freight rates, J". B. Turney; publicity, D. H. Elton; membership, A. Rafton-Canning; railway and transportation, John Taylor. The work of these committees has been fully reported from time to time through the Herald, and the members certainly are entitled to a great deal of credit for many hours of hard and unselfish work for the city. The election of officers followed and there wasn't a contest 'It was a case of accepting the report of the nominating committee's report all through, Mr. McKillop declining to act this year. W. D. Finlay was nominated for secretary, but not being a member of the board he was declared ineligible. The new officers are: President-W. C. Ives. Vice-President-A. B. Stafford. Secretary->p. J. Hay.

McArthur. , President-Elect's Ideals Mr. Ives on taking the chair 'was greeted with hearty applause and made a neat speech in acceptance of the office.. Mr. Ives said he was fully alive to the honor paid him, and fully alive to the responsibility he was assuming. The result would be learned' when the reports are read a year hence. He felt that the hoard could be>; '�" The expanses of the'past year were start}}qg. :Tb,i� was %oi^ p6o�ter�' club, bnt a board of trade. - VTliey should'act on the facts- and figures and keep under rather than go over-them. This, year the board' would have practically- pnly'such funds;aa they would raise among themselves; This would mean Increased fees and he hoped it would be afecompante'd'by a resolution to attend the moetings aLd get their money's worth. Referring to the industrial propaganda Mi1!1' Ives expressed the hope that the/ would be able to work closely with the city council and not to have then-heads so high in the air looking for' half million enterprises that they should stumble over the $5000 industries at their feet. They should first realize what they could do and then do it, -not wasting time trying to do what they could not, do. Lethbridge is the centre of an ini-mense' agricultural district and they should try to keep one or two things in view. We must either be a large consuming "market or a-large distributing centre,Sffo be the first U is, necessary to get^K)Pulation- �^or tue second it would 'beHgecessury to educate the farmers, dOTsather convince them of the.Importa^ commodities required, lo'tliat it would not be necessary for Mr. Horne; for example, to send to New Zealand,,the United States or elsewhere for thb supply of butter and eggs. There-should he no necessity of going outside of Southern Alberta. The mixed farming idea: has been taken hold of rapidly and he predicted good progress. He thought'the bankers and the C. P. R. would do more than any other agencies to educate the farmers along the right lines and thought it advisable that the banks adjust loans as to make it necessary to have bo many head of stock on the farm. Mr. Ives com- � mented .upon the good work being done by Mr. Fairfield at the experimental farm and he Is not doing anything but what any other farmer could do. In concluding Mr. Ives expressed faith in the city council and believed very shortly an industrial policy would be forthcoming of great import and he felt sure the members' of the board would wish to work as closely as possible with the oouncil so that; the -best intellect of'.the city could be utilized in building up >Leth-~ bridge. New Business Under new business *a number of suggestions were thrown out 'which ensures work for the executive right from the start. Mr. . Higinbotham brought- up the matter of the stamp used at> the. post office. The Dry Farming.
