Word to this effect was received in Lethbridgi1 this morning. The University of Alberta Is increasing its slope in research work in connection with Hie natural resources of Alberta and this is one step toward that end.

Tho reja'ilers came.- out prepared to talk about Draytpn's luxury tax but the discus- sion was not fiery. In.any way.. "t Should Stick Together President W. J. Nelson, during the opening of the remarks pointed out that retailers of Lethbridge should stick together on whatever action is decided on in 'regard to collecting of the tax. If the men decided- that ihcy would not commence collecting the taxes Immediately he. wanted every merchant affected to do like- wise nnd a1 prosecution arose the jiierchauts as a body would band Ecther toflgtit it. lie explained that the collecting of the laxes will cost the merchants something as it will mean keeping accounts of sales In HrrpIIcale instead of in duplicate as they now do.

A. Official Gives His YJevys Interviewed by the Herald In order Lo obtain a view of the tp.r- iff, Mr. W. A. Hamilton, secretary of the Lethbridge District U. F. A., stat- ed that so far afi the method of direct taxation applied In it in the raising of revenue the principle was in ac- cord with, that which the farmers have emphasized, in that by the same Ihe individual would know at least what he was 'contributing, and it would bring home to him the cast of gov- ernment. Whether the arrangement as to placing .-the onus of collection or. the retailers would he satisfactory in the amount of extra business it would impose ami the extra cost of admin- iatratiou in the collection and super- vision of tlio taxes was a moot point. A- Serious Objection The point in the budget to'which the farmers would .have serious oh; jectlpn is that nolhing has been done in respect to.the revision of. the tariff. TA promise 'has been made, hut that p.rprnlBe', hasj becn-7 niadc before _and the tarirr aiifi remaius- as k Jt ra to be.noted that, in the exist- ing tariff Is made use of, the Canadian product is sold at the price of Ihe Im- ported article. In cognizance of this, several ol'-the .big, Alberta farmers 'have made a point of hrjylng agricul- tural imports, from the States in pre- ference tp tllpse Canada, in that in so 'doing.thuy are benefiting th'e gpvernraent ot.Canada as the'tar- itt duty in these cases goes to the government the manufac- turer.'- case in ,point is. that of Mr. Trcgo, who on his big farm ni Oiui- chen 'has nothing ,iiut American-made mplemenls, purchasetl in preference the-Ga'nadian-madD at.-the same government will get the benefit of the duty and not the manufacturers. IE It a Luxury Tax? The price fixed as to the amount on clothing ou which the luxury lux is will affect the farmers, as on tho farm the matter of cheap clothing is an important one in the uses which clothing lias to eland. A suit at a cheap price would not be so ccouomi cal ns one at a higher price In the matter of wear. At prdsent prices on which tlie will have to be paid, so Ions as wholesale prices re main as they are, It must tend to in crease the cost of living in that, ai a matter of economy in the. way o wear, the garment which just come: under the luxury tax will have to bi bought. If wholesale prices-of the articles were reduced, with a corre spending decrease in tbe retail.price :he matter would be different, :hoso who can afford to pay the high er, or what would a luxury price will pay the tax which In the clrcun stances they would be able to pay. to the man making q large- turnover who might not ho reaping n profitable harvest. r .The resolution as givcii above was moved by B. J. 3ehl and seconded by E. U. Itylands. No Collections Today Merchants will not collect the taxes loday but will wait for word from Provincial Secretary Kcllas, who will send on any-informatlon he may find In tho provincial offices at Moose Jaw'. Tho 'Hudson Bay Company expects to receive information on tho subject from (ILtawa tofiay and merchants ore anxiously waiting for it. IL likely that the merchants will issue an official statement to their cus- tomers informing them when they in I'jnri to commence collecting the taxqs. In regard to a secretary' the execir live of the local was instructed to settle this matter. Ten now members wore added to memberGhin of the Mr. Kcl- hts was called upon to explain tho ijancfilc to ba devived hy being a mem' bar of tho local and of tho provincial association.
