This deci- sion was readied on the 'ground that price the buyi price of 6 cen would gike the producer a profit. E. J. Wood intimated that he pro- posed going into the pork packing business at Cardston. He said that he believed he could make it pay. He figured that if he paid the farmer 6J cents for his hogs he could put the cured stuff on the market at 13c. and if he .paid 8c. to the farmer he felt sure he could sell to the con- sumer for 10c. At the present time when 4Jc. is the prevailing prLce for hogs, the consumer has to pay 21c. for his ham. To straighten up the industry and put the market in such shape that the farmers could get a profitable price for their product all the wit- nesses declared they favored a govern mcnt packing plant. They all inti- mated that they had the same trou- bles and conditions in Utah and that the price was about the same. The result was that a good many of them went out of the business o raising hogs. In the Cardston dis- trict the hog raising business had fallen off during the past few year owing to the low prices offered. cabinet, all attired in their Windsor uniforms or as privy councillors while he premier wore his insignia as Knight of St. Michael and St. Georg1.

DISTRICTtOURT AT PINCHER CREEK EMBARGO ON CATTLE This country is evidently not a hog country as the 1'ork Commis- sionnrs had no rush of witnesses to give evidence when their first session opened this morning. The commis- sioners were A. Wallace, of High Kiver, chairman, .James Bower of Red Deer, and A. G. Harrison of Ed- monton, with E. Trow bridge of tho Department of Public Works, Edmon- ton, secretary. The first and only witness this morning was Morris Buiiord, man- ager of the Bcntley Co. Ltd. He stated that he bought American pork as he wanted to give '.vis'customers the superior article. Calgary and Winnipeg cured pork was in the mar- ket and the prices run about the same. He did not think there was any reason why as good pork could nut be made but did not think it would be dono. lie did not think the fanner would sup- ply pork fur a packing es- tablishment but there is no reckon why they shouldn't as the country was suitable. He did not think the establishment of a plant could reduce the price to the consiun- t-r. Tho price to the producer might be increased. He impressed upon the commission the fact that a great deal of the Canadian cured ham and hacon is brought in pickle from the other side and smoked here. The wholesale price lor the average qual- ity of pork hud down here Is from sixteen to seventeen cents. Asked by Mr. Bowes as to why he considered American pork superior to Eastern Canadian, he- said it was more uniform, is better cured, and tho trade is-hatter looked after.

Knight, a young homesteader, became incensed at his father who ordered him on" his premises nr.d attacked tho om iiiuu, breaking his nose and otherwise dis- figuring him. The young man was yesterday convicted and sentenced to six months hard labor. The past year is admitted to have been one of the most unfavorable in .He history of the West. A city under the conditions would do well to hold its own. The following figures show what Lethbridge can do in an off year. Where is there a city in the that can show the same ?entage of increase in assessment. It wonld be difficult to predict .vhat the increase will be on the roll >f 1909. A walk or a drive around tho ?ity reveals the fact that there is a remarkable amount of building be- ing done. The unvarying remark oi the traveller is ''There is more doing in your city than in any other 3 'iave visited this year."

The prosecution withdraw the case, however, and the charge was disinis sod. i Among the civil suits was the one of Brainff and Harwood, real estate agents, against Thomas Craig, a well- known rancher of the district. De- fendant had listed some land with plaintiff to be sold at per acre, signing an agreement to this effect. Phviiitiff found a purchaser at the. price mentioned but the defendant to sil, claiming that, he hVi.1 notified plaiintiffs that be Jiad r.iis. nl his price. Judgment was rt rved. Ottawa, July statement ol Sir Edward Si.ratc.hry in. the British Commons yesterday that the igainst the Canadian cattle would lot be removed bacause of the prev ilfince of tuberculosis, anthrax, mange and other infectious diseases among he cattle in this country is regarded by 'the ofiicials of the agricultural kpartmt-nt here as a mere subter- uge. The Canadian cattle are in no worse coiulition than British cafctle in thii> respect. The reasons originally given for the imposition of the embargo, was the alleged presoiici; of pluro pneumonia among cattk. The Can- adian government .has always and still maintains that this disease does not exist in this country. Evidence Taken In Stabbing Case Omaha people'" will send a carload here and it arrives as sweet as when it leaves the factory. The Eastern Canadian packers seem satisfied with tho British market and did not ca- ter to the western trade. The supply of hogs in this vicinity is not great and at present would notv keep a factory going two days in the month. The farmers gave us an excuse ior not raising hogs that theru was no packing establishment. The farmers grow their hogs promis- cuously and the product of the fac- tory would not be uniform. He thought that the first thing the go- vernment should do would be to en- courage the growing of a particular breed of hogs. There is very little in this country for hog feed, but the fanners would find it profit- able to raise a few hogs ox the side. The absence of competition is the ex- planation of the low prices paid by buvers. The evidence in the preliminary: hearing, of William Graham and Wil- iiiim Hudiak who are .alleged to bo the principals in the stabbing affray of last Thursday, has all been taken by Inspector West, lie will give his decision ns to their being committed for trial..
