W.McNlcol sub- mitted a. leport'ofUdto recent trip east, during which' he attended the convention of the Associated Boards of Trade ot Western Canada, as a del- egate from, Lethirfdge. The tollow- Ing are extracts from, this report: 1 attended the convention of the Associated. Boards of Trade of West- ern Canada, held at Brandon, Jane and 1L This-meeting was at- tended by representatives from all the principal places in the three PTOT- ;inces, -with ,the exception of Edmon- ton. A number of resolutions were discussed and, passed, and plans, laid for increasing -the efficiency, of the Association, Fault was found in the way: with -which the Association has been handled in the last two or three years, the individual boards not hav- ing information as to what was be- ing done. The Secretary was instruct- ed to get out a circular every month stating what had been done and to mail the. same, not only to the mem- bers ..of the Association, but to ev- ery Board, in the three provinces, thereby causing an .Interest which' would undoubtedly lead to more of the iboards becoming members of the Association. Tie executive -was al- so instructed to invite delegates from the British Columbia Boards of .Trade to attend Qie next an- nual meeting, with the Mea that they may become members of the Associa- tion, thereby makmff it cover the four Western provinces. As you. know It was decided to hold the meeting for 1911 at Lethbridfe, and It is expect- ed if the policy ordered is properly carried out tor the Secretary, that this meeting will one of the largest on record. Our president, Mr. Nourse, "was elected one of the vice-presidents of the Association. New Concerns Cominf. In Toronto I obtained the verbal promise of a wholesale grocery con- cern, which Is rated at about 000, that they would come here, the latter part of this month, and if things were as represented, open a wholesale house. In Hamilton an- other party agreed to come here with the intention of operating a small brick yard, sash and door factory, and going: into the of building .Houses for sale. Tht Cartwright People. You will remember that some little time ago, we had a letter from the Bright Machine Co., of Montre- al, asking what we could offer in the way of inducement for them to estab- lish a factory here to manufacture their printing presses. I saw thes people in Montreal, and found ou that they wrote practically every place in the West the same letter, and received from none of them any great er inducements than we held out, but they also wrote many towns in the East, and are now arranging to go into the town of rarnham, about for- ty miles from Montreal. tarn is giving these people land and a building, .-which will answer the purpose of a factory, only string on the gift being that they are to have a pay roll of a certain amount each vear lor fifteen years in Farn- Then the town guaranteeing their -bonds of being- needed to supply" the necessary machinery for the fac- tory. That is, the Cartwrfght pec- Pie have practically nothing but their Patent, and town is them with the necessary working cap- ital to handle the thing. There was a number of towns in the East that offered these people something, but none of them quite as good as this. It Is unnecessary to say that I coould not see any method whereby I could persuade these peo- ple to come to Lethbridge. Interested in this District. I have found most business people with whom I talked interested in the West, and particularly in this, dis trict I find the district iv well ad- vertised, aad have no doubt that when our crop is again in proper condition, ive will see many of them looking this way. I arranged -with the Alberta Gov- ernment offices in Winnipeg, Toronto and Montreal to distribute our lit- erature, and have sent each of them a supply. When in New York I tried to see Mr. Carnegie or his secretary, but bund that the entire outfit had gone to Scotland, therefore was unable to see them. In Winnipeg, I saw Mr. White, vice- president of the C. P. R., and endeav- ored to get some Idea from him as to their intention regarding the Leth- brWge-Weybum line, but could get no information, and am of the opin- ion that they have not decided as yet themselves what they are to do.

At the eaa of tnat period he will work he_ will not come in In England, as In Canada, they getting, eady for the Of 1911 In Canada a religious enumeration Is included In the census returns, but in England such a policy has always been opposed by the Nonconformists. A debate in Parliament on a re- cent evening, when it was moved that should be a classification of re- beliefs, shows some of the rea- for this opposition. Mr. William Jones, an enthusiastic Welsh Liberal, gald that if there were a religious census, people -who were indifferent, would put themselves down as Anglicans, -because that seem more "genteel." He cited the lat- est prison statistics, which showed taat criminals In prison on March 28 1906. classed "themselves as follows Salvationists, n; Congregational Ists, 53; Baptists, 132; 436; Presbyterians, Roman Ca tholics. AmgUcs.QS> Lord Hugh Cecil TO, In favor of the religious census. There was nothing very terrible in It. "We are not suggesting a rehearsal of the Bay of we are suggesting a religious census. We want to know what people call themselvea." tie eferred to the contention lhat per- sons of no religion In prison would enter themselves "CJiarch of Eng- land." He asked if it was reafon- able te suppose that the standard of religious conviction was lower in prison, than, outside.

He sold that Liberals 6 not face the enumeration, be- cause ther knew it wouM throw back the cause of disestablishment Had Been There Himself. Burns, in his reply, gave some of his personal experiences wfth re- rard to the alleged preponderance of Jhurctt of England members among he prison population. "Lord Hugh 3ecil has never been la have remember when 1 iras about with Mr. Cunningham Grabam "What my religious belief was, before had time to reply, a man standing had baen there gested 'Church England, John.' I looked at him. Before I could ask wiy, he said, 'Three services on Sun- day and excellent hymns.' "The noble lord ought to follow that out Tie simple fact that there are three services on Sunday and ex- j cellent hymns practically determines those who have been to prison before what their religious faith win he. Sil- ence is the rule In prison, and if the lord were to go to a prison church and hear a thousand prisoners staging, he would aear the best nymn- singiag he ihas ever listened to. Why s it so sincere, BO well done, so loud? Because those who know how to do It use the singing as an opportunity for conveying messages to each oth- er which they could not have done if there -were fifteen twenty- two Roman Catholics, throe Presby- terians, and a warder watching ev- ery movement of each particular sec- tion. "I can assure the noble lord that when Kindly is being sung in PentonviUe, there are many cases where a four ounce loaf of feread is passed from a prisoner who does not want it to another who does. That is why 90 per cent of these people say they are Church of England." The ultimately re- jected 135 to 28. FRUIT Many are buying fruit from us. Are you? Quality Is A 1 and prices are the lowest.
