With that letter I heart- ily agree, and for the benefit of those who did not read it, I append that part of the letter dealing with the question of the employment of Japs, by the C.P.B. at Tabw: Sir: Are the-C. P. R.Ho be con- gratulaled for their great philanthropy in importing over 70 for thc re- pairing of their line We drew attention on Monday last to the im- portation, to Raymond of about -the. same number, Surely- there are more than sufficient of the. .white race in the country anxious and willing to work and not able to get it. Every dollar earned by the white man U spent in the thereby, helping to build it up and making it pros- perous, whiUt in the other case: nine- ty-nine per cent, leaves it. Leather medals should be struck with the (stamp of the "Rising-Sun" on it and presented to each one of the direct- ors in grateful recognition of the help they are giving their own countrymen. No doubt the company has done good for the country but if they have they got large concessions- from gov- ernment in grants of large tracts of land which has reaped for them a great golden harvest and a thousand per cent, more than they have given or will-give to the community. They should remember that this is a white man's country and that it is the white rreeideat of- the United Miue Work- of America is the' strongest man the Democrats can nominate for Vice President. Out of the short list of six for this position John Mitchell GROWERS MEET AT THE HAT lauded as the strongest. In my opin-i ion, not only is be the strongest for would be the best President. At the annual meeting of the West- ern Stock Growers' Association at Medicine Hat, the officers olectod were: Huckvale (re elected.) 1st Vice Lane The man who- condemns- labor un- ions and contends that such are mere ly for the boosting up oi the.

Listen: "A Typographical Union recently established a live day law.

In the roport of the Board of Man- the following appeared: At the last annual meeting some were expressed that it was the intention of the .Provincial Govern- ment of Alberta and Saskatchewan to levy a new land tax of 1 1-4 cents per aero on all land outside of existing school districts. A strong r.so'.ution protesting against this course was adopted- but had no effect as later on in the year the tax was instituted This action struck such a serious blow to leaseholders that it was de termined to circulate a petition point ing out the injustice of the tax anc the burdensome addition it woulc prove to the expenses of the cattlvould be required; He could on behalf of the, Government, careful consideration and he had no doubt that they would be able to alleviate the hardships which existed. Tht Wolf Bounty Moved by E. H. Maunsell, seconded by H'. M. Hatfield, "Whereas, this Association has noted with regret that the wolf bounty which has been in continual existence for the last ten years under the administration of this Association and which was taken over by .the Alberta government hag been withdrawn, therefore, be it re- solved that in the opinion of this Association there is. grave danger tliat the excellent results' that have been obtained by the continuous payament of this bounty, during the last ten years will be greatly removed. There- fore be it resolved that tin- wolf boun- ty formerly paid for wolves be. re in- troduced, viz., on grown wolves and on pups. And we would sug- gest that the bounty payable on wolves be divided "into coyote and wolf bounti s and a separate amoun be credited to each -fund so thai there shall be no danger of the wol bounty fund being swamped by the coyote bounty The Wolf question, President vale said, was a serious consideration with the farmer as well as the ranch- er and it was estimated that each WANTED A SMART BOY to wait at table at fhe Hub at night.

While on this topic I extend the glad hand to the School Board trust- ees for the hearty manner in which they handled the communication from the Trades and Labor. Council, who wrote and asked them that in the event that outsiders secured the con- tracts that the local fair wage sche- dule lie inserted in the contract.

At the last meeting Dr. Rutherford, the Live Stock Commissioner for the Dominion, was present, and consulted with the Association as to the brst manner of proceeding with the mange question, and the conclusion was ar- rived at, that instead of dipping as in formnr years between the 1st of September and loth of October, it should commence on the 15th June and be finished by the 1st August. This was the system carried out. This year- we understand that the whole system heretofore in force .in regard to dipping for the mange will be Hayes for vice-president and somewhat modified. Instead of every- Bramwood for secretary. A. plumper was given Frank Morrison an old time -printer, as delegate to the Am- erican Federation of Labor. J. A.

Tn addition to this it is the intention of the Live Stock Commissioner's of- fice to carry on an educational cam- paign amongst the ranchers and THe v: Star night, Mr.- Kinney. spoke at some length, explaining thc necti of thor- ough organization among the carpenters, pointing out the fact that fewer trade disputes take place in a city where the crafts are fully or- ganized and working under agree- ments than where the matter of wag- es and hours are an open question. Thc Brotherhood of Carpenters is one of the strongest trade organizations in existence, numbering now over members. George T. English, of the Port Ar- thur Typographical Union wiii be a candidate in the Provincial elections. That's true religion, George, and I hope you will be successful. The Legislative Committee of the Trades and Labor Council will meet in the Labor Temple on Sunday af- ternoon at 2 o'clock. farmers of those districts which come within the quarantined area in the hope that-an-intelligent idea of what the mange is and what damage it will affect if not treated, will become generally spread abroad. A Hide Ordinance Tt was moved by Howell Harris seconded by A. J. Day: Whereas there is no check at present upon the brands ot cattle killed at slaughter houses this Association urges most emphatically upon the government the urgent need there exists for the en- cost the. country from to a year to feed. Thc Associa- tion had started out by paying the bounty out of its-own pockets-Final; ly the old Tiritorial Government saw the wisdom of the bounty and paid half the amount. Then they under- took .to pay it all.. Tho other-day-he had personally paid a man for killing fourteen wolf imps and it "was. cheap at that as at a very low esti- mate these pups would-have increased to one. hundred in number in three years. If it cost apkce to keep them it f was easy to estimate, what figures -the; sum would run into. The Association: was not strong enough to pay the. wolf the whole country, and even at the figure paid by the government men could not de- vote their time to wolf hunting and nake it pay. Fortunately, however, there were enough men public spirit: ed enough to double the bounty, and so make the inducement.. sufficient for the purpose. In he asked that consideration be given the matter of dividing the bounty between the coyotes and wolves, so former would not swamp the. latter. The coyotes in his opinion, did not do one-hundredth part of the damage Mr. Billie Sharratt Ventriloquist aricl Mimic At liberty for Smoking Concerts, Ventriloquism taught ACCOUNTS COLLECTED If you have aii account which you failed to collect, leave it with me.

The Premier, rising, remarked that it was not ni-c.-ssary to have fur- tlur discussion on the-question. Last season the government had set aside for wolf bounty. This was largp sum, but in three months it had huen exhausted topethor with a large additional sum. However, as soon as he returned to Kdmonton hekwoul( .confer with his conferoa and woulc action of-a "hide ordinance."

We would re- spectfully request that a law be en- acted making it compulsory that bc- forfe any hides are sold or shipped they shall be inspected and recorded and we would suggest that if such a law is not applicable to the whole pro- vince it shall be made so that those parts particular And we would further suggest that, it be made ilegal for any other man than a butcher to sell beef without first .producing thc hide for inspection to an inspector. Premier Rutherford, who was pres- ent said that the resolution contained suggestions which would meet with the approval of certain momtK-rs in a prescribed area. He sugg.sted that the Association mention the area to be covered and outline a scheme where- by the Government could carry out the suggestions. He had not thought that there was much cattle stealing going on, as thc heavy sentonres im- posed by the Chief Justice was sup- pos d to have stamped it out. He had not known of much thieving ini the central and northern parts bwt could sec the hardship which fell on the large rancher in Southern Al- borta.
