Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - July 20, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, JULY 20, 1918 THE LFTIinniDGE DAILY HER\Ln 'AGE SE\TtTT LATEST NEWS OF LETHBRIDGE AND THE SURROUNDING DISTRICT . ACTION ML SAVE THE SimT FOR THE LIVESTOCK R. C. Harvey Expresses Fear, However, That Corner May Be Established in Feed R. C. Ilttrvoy; one of tho Inadlug licop ranchors of Wostorn Canada, who oxpocts to winter In tlio nclKli-borhood ot 20,000 Bheop, told tho Hef-Irt this mornlHK that tho action of tho govornniont and thu railwayg In providing cheap tranBportntlon tor HvoBtock and liay would bo u groat benefit to the country and would likely savo tho livestock Hituatlon, though energetic action will have to ho taken to got roaulta In lime. .Mr. Harvey is now endeavoring to buy hay, and Is shipping in cottonseed meal. One of his chief complalnt.s is that the buy growers of Soul horn Alborta will not eoU their hiiy, sn that tho ranchers nro not able to provide for c!irr.vlng their stock over' here, lln i.s afraid that much of tho ^tock will ho iililpped out of Ihls district and sent north, and Hint a large porconlago of It will hot cnnio back. In this case, the farmers who have hay to soil will find thomsol-vos another yoar with a very limited market. "It Is up to tho hay growers to help us carry over our stock In or-,der to koop them in tho countiT nno-Ihor year. One farmer 1 spoke to, who lia.'j 150 tons of hay, told mo ho wouldn't eell It until next spring. I told him that If he didn't sell It till then our stock would be either all out ot tho country or dead. a littlo co-operation Is needed now, of all times." Fear of a Corner. Fear that hay speculators will corner tho available hay In tho north and boost the prices to a prohibitive figure was expressed by .Mr. Harvey, who liopcs tho government will stop in and set a price on it.- "The price on our woo! Is practically sot. I am sat-lafled to have the government sot a price on mutton, but I want to bo nblo to buy feed to carry over my bands without being held up." K: a. Qually, tho government lepre-sontatlvo here, has received a wire from the department at I'^dmonton to the effect that a half rate has been granted on haying equipment going inio the north country. Tills wa.'? asked for by the ("ardston stockmen at a meeting the other day. Tlio wire also pointed out tlint the half rate on hay and livestoclt did not apply on the K.D. and B.C.' railway na yet but It was�llkely that it would be mmle to do so. As for sotting a prico on hay, the wire stated that the provincial government had nfiked tho dominion government to set a price on hay to apply over (he west. It was thought that tho prico of hay to tho farmers In tho Lesser Slave ].,ake district will be about per ton f.o.b. cars, and the freight rate Is in the neighborhood ot ?7 per ton. If all the freight is borne by Ihe railways and tho government it will be possible tor Southern Alberta stockmen to lay down hay hero at ?!.") per ton, which would be considered very reasonable. Most of the hay from the T.,e68er Slave Lake country, and It Is thought tiuit district win provide 100,000 tons if labor can be secured to put it up, will bo stacked at Faust, Grouard, Swan RIvor, Saw Ridgo and Drift Pllo. The Chautauqua (By S. S. Dunham, Chairman.) A Short Retrospect. It wag Lothbridgo that tlmt brought tho Chautauqua to Wostorn Canada. It was to the enterprising citizens who signed last year's contract that Lothbridgo owes this distinction. Thoy undertook tho onterprlso after the cities between hero and Winnipeg had rejected it. To-day tho Chautauqiw Ifi being hold at moro than� 200 points In Western Canada. Lothbridgo not only took the load in this movomont, but at Lothbridgo the largest Chautauqua audience, yet assembled In Canada, convened. Shall we tuko a second placo In this movement? If not. It behooves our whole citizenship to got behind the movement. So Buccoaatul was tho program last year, that when volunteers wore called upon to guarantee tho $1,500.00 necessary to obtain tlio Chautauqua thia yoar, tho following named enterprising citizens unhesitatingly signed their narco to the contract:  S. S. Dunham, W. O. L. Hnrdle, Cannon W. V. �McMlllcii, M. Freeman, T. M. Huff. Geo. L. Taylor, K. .1. Kohl, F. K. Spooner, W. .1. Lloyd, R. Pilling, T, a. Fettorloy, ,lohn A. Craig, ){. H. Dob.son. W.

Not one ot theeo citizens can possibly get ?l.on from the Chautauciua. Tholr only object is to benefit the community generally. Surely this Is a laudable effort on tholr part. .\ro you; Mr. Citizen, willing to do your part? HIOH RIVER (From The Times.) Dr. G. D.
