BIG CROPS IIS YEAR R LETTHBIUOGE, ALBERTA, TUESDAY, MARCH 30, 1915 J. H.Grisdale, Director of Experimental Farms, Gives Good Advice PRAISES LOCAL BOARD OF TRADE As,a practical message not only to tarmers but to all directly or indirectly, interested in agriculture, the address of J. H. G^risdale, Director of Dominion Experimental � JH'armSj at the ^ BoSrd  of trlade ' luncheon held yesterday, Avas one of considerable interest and value. Th� theme of the speaker-' was stability in farming, lound'.which. he-.circled advice, and the results of experience and experiment igatheired from' .the- experimental farms which he directs. Farming has more or less a fascination for nearly every one. Even the city man burdened with business cares and responsibilities ofttimes turns to it as a solace and-a recreation. 'To hear its.  various problems grasped, its possibilities under careful and scientific management enlarged on, and sidelights incidental to the industry introduced by an expert, who is a thorough master of his subjert, was not only interesting but also illuminating. . Round the luncheon board, at the Lethbridge Hotel, was a. goodly gath-erlng, only of men who them-selyes.Avere farmers, but of those who sensed itp,importance as bearing on the'wfUarp of tlie , Mr:.'. Qjsdale expressed hisf unantici-patfed being given the op-pbrtuhiiy to address the Lethbridge 'jpaa^dTbf .Trade, though,-being^ah Im-'  prq^liU: callV^.it-wa of a' diitjr.;.He passed tSe-BMijiljaVcbmpli-ment-as.being a live 'or^anizatioti in the fact-that- itf no .other case in Gan- ' ada .be .'been .iii'.correspondence 'With'a like iiistiiution.'such'as he had been ,With thie Lethbridge one. In ac-ceptiiig .the invitation - to the  luncheon he-'inerely reciprocated the interest shown, by the board in agricultural inattors, and hfe "was glad to help them' along in - their schemes for the welfare of: the city and tte district. A REMINISCENCE To speak on technical subjects as they affected the distcict the speaker said would be usiirping the province . pf Mr, Fairfield,; t/ho from his long tesideflCD^here was, in toucTi with bem.' He might,.,however, state that he was in Lethbridge. a few months before M.r. Fairlield, and was at a meeting lield in the 'Lethbridge hotel in 191)1 and spent some .'time, on a trip due to it, visiting Magrath and Mountain View, getting into touch 'with't^ie Mormons.who ivere then the only settlers there. Much progress bad been made since those days, and he congratulated the city on the substantival nature of.'its. improvements in tlie matter .of> buildings,-Parks, streets sind street railway. They were a credit to the community for the size of the city,, andlfor the time in �which.-iii has existed, r * IN^jSREST- IN~ THE FARMER Mr', ; Grlsdale . oon'gfatulated . the Boardj'.of ;Trade oh the interest taken, in tli^-farmers.

BOARD 0---��-, Fight Over C.P.R. Exemptions Between the Chairman and Trustee Davidson "Scrap of paper" scraps have invad ed the school /joard, and the special meeting last night was a scrap of the old time Donnybrook order. The split in the board developed openly last night over the C. P. R. exemptions. Just when It was thought the old scores had bK been carefully folded away in mothballs for safe keeping, they broke out again. -Chairman McKlUop and Trustee Davidson were the storm centres. She nieeting was as peaceful as the usmU calm, before a stonn up till tei^o'c'lock. Then the storm broke. Here was the cause: Wh^nthe C. P. R. was negotiating, tor allocation, for the southern Al--herta superintendent's division last) tall they demanded that It be put ,upon the bdoks that .the old aigreemeat^ ot 1905^^^e, with the 'city council exempting;, the corporation for fifteen years, jncla'de the icboo] taxes. The agreement-always had exempted, the school taxes', and when, made, it was -intended that, it shoiiid until the agreement expired. The ratepayers h^ voted on it and given their sanc-'tlffi. �;>.- ""ut during 1914 there were some-little money matters, in, dispute. between the city counci'l and- the school board, and one of the members of the-board found out that the city had aei'-, er had the right to exempt the CP. R; from paying school taxes on their., railway yards here. Accordingly^ a tax notice was sent to the company whereupon the C. P. R. offlcials :8at; �up and took notice. The axnount;ot taxes involved on the right-of-way. and yardage room through the city'! is variously, estimated at from |li'.0,o: 1.0 S2200 which the school board' ii^. 'iosing by the 1905 agreement.

P.'R. insisted t'hat the let-, ler of the 1905 agreement be lived up to, and the city council, declaring that the ratepayers had voted in favor of the agreement, asked the school board to nasB a resolution stating that they would agree to "have " the charter amended making this clear; , The amendment sho.uld have gone through at the October session of the legislature, "but for some reason it did not. -Meantime the C. P. R. kept urging that the c'iause be Inserted in' the charter and at a recent meeting of the school board the resolution was re-afflffirmed. It was thought unanimously. Chairman McKIIlop opposed the .exemption last summer, and still opposes it, and when the resolution'was p.ut he did not vote "for" it. Neither did against and it was taken for granted that he acquiesced. Jlessrs. Wallace and Davidson were sent to Edmonton to support the exemption amendment on behalf of the hoard. When the matter reached the committee, Hon. J. R. Boy'ie, minister of Education stated that he had; received a telephone message from Chairman McKiUop of the Lethbridge School Board stating that he was oP:' posed to the amendment. ' The fat was in the fire right, when that was announced and the missionaries from the south s'wore thoy had beep double f crossed. And that was the. little '.'scrap;; of ipaper" that started the rowJast night, 'Trustee Davidson accused Chairnian McKillop of going opposite to the stah'd taken by the school'hoafrd'llh this matter. The chairman maintain; ed that he never had b'een and never would be in favor. It was pointed put to him rather pointedly however, tha.t his own opinion was not that of the school board,, that he was chairman of the, hoard and, would have to, do the will of the board In school "matters. The other trustees supported Mr. Davidson In pointtnig out that Mr. McKillop had misused his authority as chairman of the board. Thectoss talk was hot and heavy, but "was-ifln� ally dropped because the amendment is now on the books. -There are.likely, however, to be eohoesrof th^v'iU--tie scran-at the meeting of the North iiethbridge. ratepayers tonight. _.! ') Edmonton, March 2H.-(tipecial).- Alberta wives will have the right to dower if they want it. In the legislature today the attorney-general'introduced a bill providing for an equal interest in the home for every wife -in Alberta. She is given the right to .iifle'a caveat which will deliver her j,eayAl-'^ the estate -with husband .and prevent his disposing of it, .mortgaging it, or willing it away without her consent. The right of .caveat aplies only to that portion of ithe � 'estate ' which constitutes the liomc; This is effective so far as far-iiher's are concerned, giving ninety-five per'cent, of the farmers' wives equal rights in the farm. In the urban localities it applies to the property occupied' as a home. LONG' SESSION DEVELOPS Very little progress was made in the House today. Stories about Eas-lir prorogation are dreams. The iHouse may sit two weeks yet unless ielcclion development at Ottawa causes' a stampede. There will be a de-ibatc oh the railway policy and on railway � matters . in general.
