Marketing Grain The resolution submitted by the dlackie local asking that a more direct system of marketing grain, whereby the handling charges could be reduced, was lost after an explanation of- the system now in force was made by President Wood and C. F. Brown of tho very great need for such action. T-h?re has never bee^ any ser'ousi congestion on the city streets and uiit;l such time as there is there is no need for chang-ihg the present arrangement.
