Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 18, 1907, Lethbridge, Alberta WbtrtiM Should Consume Alberta Proda.ts ' (From Edmtnton Saturday News.) Ifr. B. N. Barker, Cardston, wiles: "If we consider Unit evidence glv-tti At Cardston goes )o show that Mmet Is bought by local butchers at $48 ft head, a price n tittle over that paid hy big dealers for export cattle MiA ihtiA, these local butchers kill and dress, making a profit of $12 or more, then when beef Is sold for double ntid treble the Cardstonprlcos for most cuts down east, then there imuft be a considerable sum, ovur the price received by tlto rancher, to lie dlvkted among the dealers after the beet leaves the hands of the producer!. In fact the greatest profit does not accrue -to the producer. In the Cftsc of pork It soenw odd that pork WW bo easily raised here ami pigs go down to 4 cents |vr tb., or nothing at all, that Chicago bncon mul hams can still come In by the car load and! be sold at 18 cents whole-tote. ITielocnl trao preceded by a scandal ram|mlgn. Doth sides are lining up for the battle, not more than a year off. and the campaign Is imminent. The Conservative members who have a f ready spoken have emphasized the '"rottenness" of the present rulers, the "crookedness," the pressure of "graft," and so on. They sevin to argue that lieetmsu Mr. Whitney won In Ontario by such luetics, that Mr. Horden will win by them, in the Dominion. All their energies in the |nist two years have lieen coiid'trt rated on discovering suinl|'hia :ind other lulled Slates I porting.

Mutton Is altogether too scarce in this country and the obi range idea tho' the country is fenced up and mostly owned privately, is still prevalent that sheep should not be allowed In a stock country. Without packing houses we are throxving away our second and third grade cattle, paying freight on an article that sells for little, nod ant going to enormous ex)iense in getting to market something that buyers do not want in thai form. If we do not use up what nature has gix'en us, ajid continue to pay other countries for what xx-e ought to raise at home, we are burning the candle ey quickly made.

Is it true that Canada w:l never turn n government out unless it can to proven that its mrndiers and hangers-on were guilty of bood ling or graft? If so. then it xvouli be well to furl the national flag and drape the national momimonts in black. Itowoxer. it was not thus that Sir .John Macdotinld got back to power in 1STK lie drafted for himself ami his party a new and definite policy he won on an aggressive and posl tixv ai�it.
