Opposite Moms Theatre The Board of Trade and the Civic Grant Its Position Slated in Reply to the Council's At- titude There seems to be trouble iirLeth- bridKe in yeltiny nu'inbv'rs oi' organ- izations out to moot ings during the summer. Whether it may be that, tlie Alberta evenings in the business i it desire to linger longer outdoors, or whether there is a lack of interest in the meetings of tlie various associations within ihe city, the fact remains that attendance at meetings is small. The Board of-Trade complains of such a state of the Busi- ness Me si's Association and Anto mobile Club follow suit. The Build ers' E'xi'hangtt did the same i rouble, but there is something; Im- portant, golns on in thin eauui Just at present, aiid the members.are a very anxious LO be on hand. Secretary Man waring -broached the subject lust night when ho endeavor- ed to learn the sentiment o.' the mem- bers of the Hoard of Trade council toward noon sessions of (he executive. Me siiid thai some of the chairmen of committees ere very lax in their at- tendance, and believed that some- thing should be done lo overcome that, state of affairs. Me thought that noon meetings "would help in this particular. However, the opinion of those present was that noon meet- ings were not a success and decided to make no change. J. B.- Turner however intimated that it might be a good idea to pre- pare an attendance roll, and publish it in the monthly bulletin of the board. That, would show to what ex-i gallon of express freight rates. A very comprehensive report was sub- mitted by tlte chairman of the freight rates committee; which was adopted. Xo action 'will be taken at the present time. Vice President Explains Situation' Vice President McKillop, who pre- sided over the meeting, iiad some- thing to say about the controversy which is being waged about tlie al- terations lo the Hoard of Trade build- ing on Gait Park, lie also said a few tilings about the board's estimates for the year. While he understood that tbe council were forced to cut Ihe estimates ami that the Board of Trade estimate would some in for consideration, lie did not wish tho board to be placed In n wrong light before Ihe public eye. The work which is being undertaken on the Hoard of Trade building is not nil for Board of Trade purposes. The Board of Trade share of the cost will probably be half, and they are pre- pared to pay that out of Board of Trade funds. Tbe remainder of the cost covers the construction of public lavatories, a necessity in the city, and will be chargeable to the Gait Park capital expenditure account. What he wished the public to under- stand was that the Hoard of Trade ras not trying: to force on the people i Hnyttfing which is not for the general i good. If (hat is understood, the! board's position is explained.

A similar plan has been followed by the Builders' Exchange and has been pro- ductive of beneficial results There was little done at the meet- ing last night ou7side of passing en routine business. There is one mat- tor of more than ordinary importaiu before the board; that is an tion of the council that the subscri tion scheme should be discontinue and the Board of Trade's activitl be'carried on out of the general fun as a department of the city. F that one reason the subscriptions we dropped, and the board was askin for a grant In keeping with the am ount usually asked for cities, that is at-the rate of one do lar per head of population.
