That 1914 will prove one of.the best years in the history of tha sheep in- dustry in Western Canada, is the op- inion of R. C. Harvey, one of the larg- est ranchers in the entire "west, who was a visitor In the city today, Mr. Harvey has just completed his 1914 and. reports the best crop of lambs he .has had for years. In marking the additions to his flock, he found that he had man- aged to save over 100 per cent, of the Iambs born, and they are all thrifty and strong.. Out of a, sma'il flock of 708 ewes, Mr. Harvey succeeded in. saving 710 lambs, and out of a flock of 1616 ewes he saved 1614 Iambs, an unusual record for range stock. In all Mr. Harvey has 3500 newly horn lambs, all of which were born on the open prairie, near the Chin lakes. Mr. Harvey imported a band of fines Sanibouillet rams from Montana last !all, and he states that their progeny will make the foundation for the first ierd of Romney-Marsh sheep in. Can- ada, Mr. Harvey will Import a herd of Romnoy-Marsh rams this season from the old country, 'which he will use this fall. He slates that this breed promises to become the most popular on the range; in time, as it excels in long stapled fleeces; combin- ed with constitution and ranging qualities. In- a review of sheep conditions generally, Mr. Harvey stated (hat the provisions allowedly the Dominion government f or foothill grazing rights is moat inadequate. When the commission met here some time ago, the sheepmen that the Dominion government hail grnneil them grazing 'rights in the foothill country sufficient to pasture sheep.

Long, however, suggested that the farmers be repre- sented by. Harry Bright, which suggestion being generally accepted, the quartette withdrew to justify its existence. In the interim Mr. Robert Patter- sou, M.P.P., was called upon to ad- lircfs the meeting, and in a brief speech he tendered a number of pleas- ing oratorical bouquets to the execu- tive of 1918 that had helped him "i-rim the Premier" and exhort- ed those present to work for the good of the whole party rather than lor self. Professor Nesbilt then treat- eu the patient waiters to a stirring selection oa the piano and after lengthy deliberations tlie nominating committee made its report or rather its reports. In announcing the result, Mr. Grier read off two tickets recommended separately by Jlessrs. Leather and Bright, .the representatives of the young Conservatives, and Messrs. Hcnwick- and Grier, the supporters of tlie Old Guard. In tendering these two tickets to the audience, Mr. Grier stated that there was no use in mincing matters. There was a split in the party and if possible he was going lo try ard Iieai that split. Ho had been told that the young Con- servatives were going lo run Colin Macleod as president and on hearing tills lie had spproaciied Jlr. JIacicod, with the result that the latter said he would quit and lay down to his partner, Mr. W. S. Gray, if the lat- ter should stand .as the Grier candi- date. Mr. Grier added, was his intention to propose a third ticket in which there should be three of each party represented with the pre- sident as the seventh man and as if to complicate matters he read a third list of the would-be officers, after which he said, "Let us get, a united organization. I now ask Mr. Maclcod to drop out and resign, and it he has flic right Conservative principle, he will A number of voices from different parts of the hall, protested against the resignation of Mr. Macleod, whereupon Mr. Grier said, "Person- ally I am not. ambitious for any- thing and as long as tho breach .is healediI am content to drop out and pledge my word 'that I shall he a candidate for election in neither tho Federal .nor Provincial campaigns."
