BUSINESS MEN CANflELP AJOT Unload All Cars Promptly So Farmers Can Get the Empties .5. A UNIONIST PROPOSAL With fine weather for ihe thresncr- men, and with the grain pouring into the elevators as a result, tho railways are once more facing a shortage of cars in Southern Alberta, which threatens to be on a par with that of last winter. So far no very serious complaints have been made, but each day the available is growing less, and from now until the crop is all moved next spring, the shippers will always be confronted with the difficulty of securing cars. Seen by the Herald.this morning, John Taylor, of the Taylor ".Milling Co. stated that- for the- past couple of weeks, ho had found it rather diffi- cult to secure cars particularly in the outlying towns. Locally the difficul- ty was not great, as yet, although the number of cars required for grain shipments from this point is small in comparison with same of the heavier producing centres In the district. East of the city, Bow Island and Tabor are'beginning to complain about car shortage. The'fthreshing in these districts 'was early'.this year, and the elevators ahe already taxed. In the south, there is also.more difficulty in securing, cars than last.year under the To the north along the .Carmangay lino, the farmers a'-rc just.-beginning to start threshing, .but this'.week 'will nee it and the demand for cars -will be very heavy. Realizing that, nothing can prevent a recurrence of the congestion experi- enced last year, the local Board of .Trade is doih'g all in its power "to re- lieve'- the situation by asking "local 'shippers to -unload cars as possible aftor they arrive here with shipments of merchandise. At the .present time the city has seven cars tied up in the yards with sup- plies, and this morning Mr. Taylor the .Mayor to ask that they be unloaded as quickly as possible.

As they necessarily must await a reply to this note, the the great powers In Constantinople will be able to further impress the Porte with the advisability of grant- ing their demands Two Ultimatums The Porte must in the meantime, however, deal with two notes, both'of which are practically ultimatums. One of these is from Servia and demands tiie release of Servian ammunition which has been detained in transit through Turkey, while the other is from Greece and protests against the detention of Greek shipping which Turkey has decided to hold up and utilize for the transportation of her troops.
