Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LKTIinniDGR DAU.Y IIRIULP OF INTEREST TO THE FARMER PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS (Some Nut* to Crack by t:-,> r V.

It is tr Coinvany." "The Act." from which Act" or "Prohib!-n Suffrage Act." anil other? of equal intivrtance. hat there uere serious mistakes niaih in several of those acts, and others that the V. F. A. have stood for have not been so successful. Such, for instance, is the " Hail Insurant* Les'slation." and because of the great multiplicity of more or less ill-advised resolutions that under car practise must be presented by the executive to the government, we have failed to get legislation on many minor measures that are of first importance to the ivehare of the farming commun:t ies. I will mention hut one as an example, and that is. a revision of the exemption law so as to provide that 4 horses should be exempt instead of 3. Under our system of farming-, the larmers use 4 horses. This is his standard team and if one of these can be taken away from him. the exemption is of little value to him. and we have repeatedly included this resolution among those passed from time � to time in the Convention, and have ' repeatedly made the request lhat the I laws be amended, without result. In- i deed it would seem that if there should : be any exemption law ai all. it should i cover and protect the usual necessary farming outfit, and the writer is not sure that the time has not come when ; the small tractor and the Ford car j are not articles that should be in-1 eluded within the list of those that are exempt to the farmer, that is if we grant the right and the expediency : of exemptions at all. The point is that if the principles of exemption are to be applied, it should be applied to the farmer in such a way as to , protect him in the necessary things to run his vocation, and there is no rea-: son why this amendment should not be granted, but because of the reso- , lution being drawn, as it were, in a mass of resolutions not so wisely con- -ceived, it fails to get the attention: that it deserves. ! Now the present scheme for Mun-} Icipal Hail Insurance fundamentally is sound. However, when the plan was presented to the board of directors, j the writer opposed one clause, and ' that was that the farmer who wished to withdraw be compelled to do so each and every year. There are extensive districts in the province that are not addicted to hail to any great extent, and many districts are much less addicted to hail than others are. We will take for example the Peace River country. It is believed that while this district may be subject to frost, it is not supposed to be badly affected by hail storms. Indeed the hail loss i is liable to be vein- light. Such is also true of many other places of lesser area, such as the district west ot Cardston. These districts have their drawbacks chiefly from frost, and is it right and just that they should pay the same flat rate as the districts do whose chief losses come from hail* And should the farms of those districts neglect each year to withdraw from the hail insurance charges that he should be subject thereto? We think not. We think that If any farmer or any municipality desires to be permanently excluded from operation of the Hail law that they should have a right to do so, and this is one of the things that the members of the IT. F. A. in those districts should look after at once, and if they agree with the writer they should make themselves heard, either by resolution or otherwise. Establishment of district conventions would aid very materially in ob� taining the local view point on matters of this kind, and of making of laws with provisions to apply to the special needs of local � interest, but whatever we do when we recommend a plan as a basis for legislation, that Plan should bo so well considered as . r* of your tic wily. ,Vusw�r-, Don't know."
