H. J. Hutehings, president of. the Alberta'Saddlery Co. of this .City, ac- companied by E. F. Hutehings, presi- dent of the Great West Saddlery. Co. tf Winnipeg, Is-In the city today look- jug after his interests here, and in the course of an interview with" the He-raid the conversation drifted round toi a.subject on which 'Mr. Hatchings is very much interested, and an-au- thority. In making the above state- ment Sir. Hutehings said he was prompted by: the trend the farm- ers- in the direction of diversified him it appeared to be one of the most optimistic signs of the times. live stock in South-; eni Alberta than there has ever been. This may not be true in the case of cattle, but 1 notice a tendency on the part of the small farmers to gather, together a few cattle, and the. results will be noticeable in a lew' years. The number of sheep and hogs are increasing by leaps and bounds, j and as long as there is an export de-; inand for live stock the farmers are iii a position to make large profits, much larger than by the straight grain farming." "Yes, and in the egg industry broke in the president of the Great West company, "The othsr day a farmer drove into Taber "with two loads of Xo. 1 hard wheat. He had to lieg the elevatcrs to take it at 55 cents" a bushel. Not so long ago I in Vancouver and the farmers Vr'ith a few fresh eggs were selling Them at seventy cents per dozen. Now the. relation between these prices is simply ridiculous, and if the farmers iti Alberta, growing plenty of rough grain which they can hardly give away at present, would take it upon them- to supply that market with eggs alone, look at the profit they make. And T venture to say that ninety per of the eggs to be used in Lethbridge this winter will be shipped in from outside points, probably from the States." Both gentlemen expressed their ap- preciation of the action of the gov- ernment and the -big corporations Hke the railways and the banks in insti- tuting a mixed farming campaign, the urcrk of the local government in bring, ing in live stock to give The farmers a start hi the right direction being one of the points especially comment- ed upon.

The crop this year has been on the whole very successful, while marketing conditions up till the past two weeks have good. In their own. line of business the increased prosperity ci" the farmers has mcde a noticeable difference, and the o-Jt ioofc is for a heavy spring business.

F. annual tour of the west. Farmers are Actually Done Out of Cars by Elevator Companies INSPECTORS THERE C.P R Official Said It Was a Case for the Attorney- General W. F. N1CKLE -.Burdett, Friday last- a special; representative of the Dominion Grain Commission visited this town.' On Saturday a special representa- tive of the Canadian Pacific Railway, acting under instructions from the superintendent, also paid a visit. And both declared that the Burdeit farmers were the vietiims of what ap- peared steal of the season. For out of some two hundred cars of grain loaded at this point dur- ing the past two months, the eleva- tors have succeeded in getting about two-thirds of them, while the farm- ers have been forced to take what was Jeft, although the complaints of car -shortage from the farmers themselves have been loud and long. Farmers resident in tbe district wbo have bad to put up with the condition of affairs which has existed .there during the shipping say. that Hurdett has lost in the neighborhood of fifty cars to Grassy Lake and-Bow Island, which properly belonged to Burdett. Farmers, unable to get cars at this point, have hauled their grain three or four or five miles further in order that they might get CSTS where they are. the other two points mentioned. The Real Trouble The whole trouble sterns to be not so much that there- is an actual car shortage, for bushels of an es- timated crop of bushels have already been shipped. What does rouse the lie of tbe farmers, however, i? that ihey have been practically forced Jo ship through the elevators, the Alberta Pacific and the Alberts Grain, when, if they been able to get their rightful proportion of tbe cars, they would have been in a posi- tion to take advantage of a spread o: from seven to ten cents between elevator and track prices which has existed aii spread greater than that ia evidence at any other point along the GroVs Nest between Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. Tbe track price today for Xc. 2 wheat was cents, the elevators paying 55.
