Signsturo CO-OPERATION IN THE WEST Cottonwood Farm, May 15, 1914. Editor Herald In reading the farm journals I see there is a great move- ment in co-operative buying of the necessities of farm life, and I beg to state that I do not think it is to the best interest of our province. In my opinion it is a different proposition to the elevator question. In the ele- vator case I am led to believe it was a- forced condition and drastic mea- sures had to be applied. But in the case of the -merchants I do not think such measures .were called for, nor. do I think it iu accord with the true principles of democracy as I stand them. And while Lain taking a different view of this question to 'a great majority of my brother far- mers, .1 hope you will grant me the j right. of the minority that in my opinion I have some grounds for the stand I take. I will agree that the .merchants are some to blame in the action you as farmers are taking. I will also agree that we as farmers are not perfect and, as wfi all know, it does not in- dicate a very healthy condition of our economic aliairs. I have had the pleasure of dealing with the merch- ants of Lethbridge for over twenty years, and, while some of them have seen me coming once or twice, gen- erally speaking I have liart the best of treatment. I hope they can say the same of me. Now, for argument's sake, suppose the co-operation sys- tem .becomes general in our province; the system of distribution will not re-quire so many hands and what are we going to do with those thrown out of employment; the men and women who have fitted 'themselves to cater to our wants, but not fitted to take up thfe hard labor that we are accustomed to. And here come in .the true princi- ples of democracy, to live and let live. In the practice and enjoyment of these grand principles lies the sec- ret of our happiness and the solution of our problems. And now to be fair we must con- sider our merchants, the men who have invested in the erection of build- ings suitable to give us a good ser- vice. They are doing all they can to cater to our wants and are we, as western men, going to doom these men and women to disappointment and possibly financial ruin. No. This system of co-operation never bad its birth in this western country. It must have come from a country where the conditions and ideals are very different from ours. And now you ask, what about, a remedy? Well, sir, this is a difficult question, hut allow me to suggest: that the merchants and business men! of cities and towns get together and devise some means to bring about a better uiirip.rsr.anuiiig ociwei'n them- i selves and the farmers. Set apart a day, say (loot! Fellowship day, when the urban population can invite their j brother farmers, the U. F. A., to your respective cities and towns for; a good time. Let this be done in the true spirit of friendship, and while we enjoy your hospitality and friend- ship, we must not forget tho serious j side and provide a place where we cap come-together and discuss, those problems so vital to our interests. And if this is done in the spirit of this article, I do. not hesitate to say we will have less .work for our par- cel post and co-operation measures. L. P. TUFF.
