Stevens, livestock commissioner says: While, attending tho Calgary fair the early part of last week. I was asked by a number ofi your stockmen for information regarding the securing ot hay privileges in the north country. I have written to these personally regarding information that w^ supplied to my office during my absence. Tho Information thus tar' received convinces me there is an a1>undanc6 of hay in the north country. Tho problem will he to connect tho southern stockmen with' it. The following are the names of the parties who report the largest amounts; Mr. I. W. Shoop ot Faust, can furnish 1000 tons iu the Lesser Slave Lake, Swan River and -DrICt Pile districts, which he will aell on shares, trade for stock, or allow parties to winter, their stock there,?

In connection with the above there are also grazing privileges sufficient for 500 head of cRttlo tor tlje halanco of the season. There is running ^vater adjoining these lands. Mr. Stevons also states that tho superintendent of district agents is also having a systematic canvass of the situation made, to learn tho ne*od ot feed and also tho distrlots where a surplus 1b available, so that definite information may be available sliorlly.
