At the same time there will be sold 190,-000 cedar poles. The minimum prices.that will be considered by the government for the timber vary from ?i to $6 -per thous-^inti feet, and it is estimated that the timber 'will net the government at least an average of $5 per thousand, making a total of considerably more than a million and a quarter dollars lor the lot. Bids for the lumber are being received 'by the forest supervisor at Newport, Wash., and by the district supervisor at Missoula, Mont. More than 25 different corporations have submitted applications to purchase parts, of the timber, which is located on the west branch of Priest river and along Moore's creek, covering' some 18,000 acres of land in the national forest, The sale of the timber will mean a great deal of activity in the district in the next few years, as under the terms of the sale the timber must be removed at a rate of not less than "(1,000,000 feet a year. It is expected u number of new saw mills will bo built as a result. Bidders for the timber are recurred by the government to submit with their offers a statement of the proposed means of logging and development, which will be considered in awarding the timber. A'bout 55 per cent, of the timber, or about 150,000,000 feet, is high class white pine and the balance is about equally divided between yellow pine-and Englemann spruce.

Report) 22.-This.' morn lug's ession of the United -Farmers- of Alberta was- chiefly ocetiplflfl;.w1ith�t election of officers.^.T^re.wa.jf'ii tong and somewhat heated, discussion over the resolution of yes'teTday appbiutihg B. J. P'-eam honorary 'Secretary, with a seat and voice on the executive. vA delegate moved that this motion -be rescinded and this lejd to' a spirited speech from Freanf, who declared that unless there was an unanimous vote in support of yesterday's- resolution lie would resign the office of honorary secretary to which be had been .appointed. He said that he left them to form a Abetter organization '""thaii they now had. The vote was taken and was unanimous in'Tipholding'the election of Mr. Frearri to the position of honorary secretary, It was explained that exception was, not taken to Mr. Fream's election to this office on personal grounds* hut  solely on constitutional. The' election of officers has not yet 'been concluded but will be continued when the' session meets for this afternoon's work. Despite the fact that W. J',. TregUlus, who has been president of the "United Farmers of Alberta for the past yew, intimated his intention of retiring from that office at the end of the term, his mime was again put in nomination this morning and 'by a unanimous vote and amid vigorous cheering and the singing of "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow," he was again elected to the position for > another term. . The chair announced, that the vote on vice-president had heen taken. The announcement of the ;result showed the election of J. Quinseyy of Barons, as first vice-president; W. &.. Henry, of Bow Island, second; Rice Sheppard, of Strathcona, third; E. Carewell, of Penhold, fourth. The directors chosen were as follows: Victoria, P. S. Austin; Strathcona, J. R. Pointer, Edmonton; Geo. Bev-Ington; Red Deer, D. Buckingham; -Calgary, H. Sorensou; Macleod, J. H. Lennox, and Medicine Hat, A. Rawlins. Following the announcement of the election of director's the fire works of the day started. � Delegate, John Campbell, of the resolutions committee, took the platfprm, and attempted to introduce a resolution touching the nayal question. He. had not proceeded further than to' state that he was asking the convention to endorse the resolution previously passed by the ' convention, of the Manitoba Grain Growers' association, when A. E. Cox, of Plncher Creek, arose to the point of order that the matter, ^ad been �'before the resolutions- committee, 'which had submitted a report-on it. - He asked that the committee's report be considered; before^ the convention' heajrd Mr. Campbell. . ' ;.J;' \ ' The chair ruled that was proper,-and the secretary!- read the' majority report, which recommended the killing of the resolution of Mr. Campbell. In support of the committer report, Mr. Cox stated that the i"!eport dealt with the naval question and the. committee had felt that not only that question, but a number of. others which had been before the)committee, and which Avlth it-h^d�; been recommended for the waste, basket ..were questions which ought not to be Intro-duced into the proceedings of the convention. ' ''. It was, decided to raa^ all. the resolutions recommended fpx. slaughter which1 was done, "after .wfiicli Mr. Mr. Campbell wasrecognized "to read a minority report.' it recommended his resolution endorsing of the Manitoba association. Mr.. Campbell read the resolutiin, and spoke in support of its adoption. Among other things, he said that Germany 'was not arming to attack Great. Britain, but, like all other nations, merely arming for defence, A (Itlegiite Kaid thai (lie strong argument of the advocates of naval preparations for. Canada was that we hud to protect our ocean commerce. "What have we got for them to destroy?" he inquired. "Nothing hut grain, and let me tell you they are more anxious to get our grain than we nro to sell it to them; there is not much danger of them wanting to destroy it." Wouldn't Steal 18 Cents Oals G. II. Lively again justified ills name, by taking the platform, and making a, most eloquent and impassioned attack on the naval contribution or any other form of naval programme. Ho declared that the naval proposition was fathered by the same people who are responsible for protection.. This provoked shouts of "Nol" when lie inquired if the delegates thought they wanted any more protection; Then he referred to the subject of protecting our commerce and inquired if the delegates thought 18 cents oats needed the protection of^a. navy? The speaker closed with a strong argument in favor of arbitration) as the right means of settling all international difficulties. As he left the platform the hall rang 'with a prodigious cheer. Chairman Cox, of the committee, attempted to answer the previous speaker. He said that the committee in recommending that it not be considered by the convention, as the members felt the question had .no place in a meeting of farmers. He said that of the five members of the committee, four had voted for the committee's recommendation. He however, was in favor of the naval programme. He did not agree, with the argument that Canada did not need a navy, and sought to demand this contention, but was howled down. G. F. Chipman, editor of-the Grain Growers' Guide, poured oil on the troubled waters. He did not attempt to disguise his position, as it was well known that he did not favor any sort of a naval programme, yet he did not propose to discuss the merits of any of 'them, and he thought, the convention would do wisely to keep a'way from a discussion of the question from a political aspect. He thought they would do best if they confined themselves to an expression of views as expressed In the resolution of the Manitoba association. There was considerable further dig; 'cusslon, hut almost wholly on the side of the resolution. When the vote was taken, Chairman TregUlus asked the. delegates to, stand. The division showed .the resolution adopted" with but twelve voting against. ~  . "And, whereas, both the Conservative and, Liberal parties in, Parliament, have each nroposed that $3o|-000,000 or more of the public reven: ues should be devoted to the construction of naval armaments, without a mandate from the people; "Therefore, be it resolved: "That this'convention of delegates,-representing 14,000 farmers of Alberta, places-itself on record as firmly opposed to any expenditure whatever of public monies for the construction of naval armaroent, but decidedly in favor of Canada [� .encouraging* to Furniture, Household Goods, High-Grade Furs, Trunks and Bags To be held at A.
