Big Meeting To-night to Consider Grain Situation A special general meeting of the Board of Trade is being call- ed by President Marnoch for 8.45 this evening, in connection with the present position with regard, to congestion of grain shipments. It is found that the interior storage elevator at Calgary is of no service to this district, in the case of such a congestion as ex- ists at present, and that relief lies only in the direction of using the Moose Jaw elevator. The farmers appear to be suf- fering considerable loss owing to this situation. A full attendance at the meeting tonight is desired. S. S. Dunham, the lawyer-farm- er, has just returned from Win- nipeg, where he has been attend- ing a meeting of the Canadian Council of Agriculture. Mr, Dun- ham will be present, and will no doubt have something of interest to say regarding the grain situa- tion, and the deliberations of the Council of Agriculture.
