Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 22, 1914, Lethbridge, Alberta i�Ae to see it -work out successfully here. I Commission form of governrrient and � municipal ownership of utilities appears to be a long step in the right direction, and t hope we will all learn some useful lessons from the experiences of the city of. Lethbridge. Cheap Money for Farmer* "A word about the question of cheap money. Tite farmers of this province have for some time now 'been agitating for* cheap, money. We have a committee enquiring into this most important matter, and they have made their �eport. I have not seen it yet, and do not know its recommendations. It will form one of the chief subjects for debate at the next session of the | House. And I hope that, as we work-1 ed o\it a solution for the elevator problem, we uill be able to work out a solution for the money question. Staple Credit the Solution "However; there are many sides to consider, and as a farmer, 1 believe I can state with some degree of authority, that cheap money is a mere bagatelle, a matter of a few dollars on-an ordinary farmer's loan, as compared with ths question of getting cre^ dit when tt -will do the most good. It is the forcing by our financial insti; totions' of^ the farmers to sell their grain tha:t causes the trouble. When the farmers' granaries are full, that is payday for-the -whole state. The farmers are forced to rush their grain to the markets in the fall, all at the same time, to satisfy the demands of the bankers. It is not the matter of $25 or bo interest on a loan, that counts; it is the b�ing fotced to sell when the market is glutted, when the prices are down, and |75 or more are lost on every car of wheat sold, that makes the trouble. What is wanted is a staple credit for the farmer, so that if he Is good for 11500 credit in June, he is likefwlse good for It tn December or Jamuary. That places th� farmer in a ipo�ition when he may �io bis own dlotmtingr as,to when he shall sell his produce. If he had heen able to do that this fall, wheat "would not fbe ��ver*l cents a bushel lilgher now than it was w-hw the f&rmer*. wa?:e BeUinc, bocaase It is now in the hands of the Interests who are manipulating the prices to suit themselves. "That is Uie next big question for the government to deal wiUi. The solution depends on ourselvci and our co-operation in bringing it about. I don't know whether we as a province are large enough to tackle It, but with co-operation we.hope to be able to do something. Anyway, the agitation should go on." At t3>� conclusion of his address a hearty vote of thanks "was tendered Hon. 'Mr. Stewart for his address, and for his help in getting the olevaitor bill passed through Parliament. Foley on Marketing Eggs Prior to this address, A. W. Foley, chief of the poultry branch of the de-partmnut of agriculture, gave a very Interesting lecture on the co-operative marketing of egsrs. The government is anxious to rut the poultry and egg business of Alberta on a solid footles and to this end they are turning their attention toward educating the farmers how to get the best out of t-beir produce. Co-operative marketing, however, depends on delivering good goods, and gwd goods, when speaking of eggs, means strictly fresh goods. Mr. Foley rather startled the audience when he remarked that P5 per cent, of the eggs marketed in Alberta today are rotten when they leave the farmer's hands, and he at-triibutod this ")-otten" state of afralrs to the head of the barnyard flock, the rooster, who should be vigorously banned from the la:�ng flock. He advised farmers to keep not more than fift.v to one hundred hens on the ordinary farm, and keep them right; and then, if they looked after their produce carefully, and took advantage of the plans being put forward by the department of agriculture for the marketing of eggs in better condition so that they may command the highest prices, amd set up a reputation for Alberta eggs, the industry Is boimd to flourish and show great profits. Mr. Foley declared that bis own flook of White Wyandottes paid over $10 apiece last year. The remainder of the evening was spent in dealing with resolutions asking tor changes in the constitution. As they were of a minor nature most of them passed. One, however, asking for the election of the vice-presidents and the board of directors by the Hare system of preferential ballot was tabled for further discussion a't another session. Robert McKay -was sentenced to five years at Toronto. H? embezzled fifty thousand from the Crown Confectionery Co. and "played the ponies." CAPSULES catarrh!
