It was in this form that the application by the company was discussed at the special council meeting on January 13, Later, however, the application was proceeded with under chapter 118 of an "act respecting water, gas and electric companies. It anticipated a resolution of the council requesting the Local Government Board to take action to have a gas franchise granted the company as soon as possible, and was designed, according to a suggestion of Alderman A. J. Tatchell, to bring the application within the scope of the War Measures Act, December X, according, In part, to a letter from A. F. Sallows, city solicitor, to the Local Government Board, read at Thursdays council meeting, the Community Services Limited placed with the mayor and city clerk a proposed franchise agreement with a request that the council pass a resolution asking the Local Government Board to take appropriate action to have a1 natural gas franchise granted to the company as soon as possible. ,It was stated in the letter that the local representative of the gas company had intimated to the city solicitor that this procedure was being followed at the suggestion of the Local Government Board. In their reply December 4, the board stated in part, "It la not correct that the procedure you refer to is being followed at the suggestion of the Local Government Board. Any action by the city council on a matter of tnls kind would be by bylaw and not by resolution." The secretary of the board recalled that on one occasion one i epresentatlve of the company, and on another occasion, two of them, interviewed the Local Government Board during the summer or early fall of this year and suggested that the board proceed with an inquiry. On each occasion they were told that under the statute the Local Government Board does not act on an application of a proposed franchise holder, but only upon the application of the municipality, and that the Local Government Board has no powers and no responsibility in the matter in the absence of an application from a municipality. Mayor J. D. Deans was adamant in his stand that the first requisite of any fianchlse-seeklng application was that it should be presented to the council in proper form. Aldermen W, Bunce and A. J, Tatchell took the stand, however, that the first step was to decide whether the council wished to have any dealings with Community Services Limited, or any other company for the supply of natural gas. Questioning the council'll power to act on Us own Initiative In Introducing a franchise bylaw and observing that the company would be well advised to bring it before the council by way of a petition," Aider-man Conroy introduced a resolution calling for Community Services Limited to be advised by the city clerk, that while the city council looks favorably to the introduction of natural gas In the city, the matter is one of such importance we feel It should be brought before us by way of a petition of the burgesses, duly drawn up and presented In accordance with section 308 of the City Act. It was endorsed unanimously. Aldermen were told by the mayor they would be given ample opportunity to discuss the franchiseseeking agreement clause by clause before being asked to vote on the covering bylaw.

SASKATOON STAB-THOEXIX. Increase in All Branches Of Farming at Choiceland CHOICELAND. The numerous change to tractors as soon as they crates of turkeys, both dressed and olive, the crates of ducks and gee3e, ss well as many crates of old bens and roosters that have been shipped out of Choiceland during the past three weeks, testify to what extent poultry raising has been increased in the surrounding district It le Interesting to recall that until slk years ago few families owned any fowl, but today not only has every fanner as well as numerous town residents their own flocks, but it is estimated that 75 per cent of them have purebred stock, while several have purebred blood-tested flocks supplying eggs to hatcheries in Prince Albert, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg. There are also hundreds of dozens of eggs sold locally and shipped to larger towns weekly. Few poultry raisere bother to hatch their own chicks, preferring instead to sell tha eggs and purchase baby chicks, and those furnishing hatcheries with eggs get their chicks through customs hatching. There are in the district at present purebred Rhode Island Red, New Hampshire, White Leghorn, Barred Rocks, and White Rock poultry, as well as Toulouse and Snowy geese, Bronze and Narra-ganeett turkeys, also a few offspring of Canadas famous Bronze turkeys owned by Mrs. Hallman of Alberta. Some of the latter realized a price exceeding $5 each, dressed, during the holiday season. The largest turkey raisers of the district are Mrs. Nick Coppen of Kelsey district and O. C. McKim of the Choiceland Hamlet district. Hog and cattle raising have also increased considerably during the past few years. There are several carloads of cattle being fed for the market this winter, and Carloads of hogs move to market weekly. This situation Is in contrast to six years ago, when both hogs and cattle were scarce. Many cans of cream are also shipped daily to both Nlpawin and Prince Albert, as well as scores of pounds of butter sold locally. Several fair-sized flocks of sheep are being raised In the surrounding districts to help alleviate the mutton and wool shortage. Land clearing has also gone ahead rapidly during the past five years with cleared acreage doubling itself many times over. The change from oxen to tractor farming has been rapid, for as recently as five years ago several farmers still used oxen, while today fully 60 per cent of the farming is done by tractors, Many more farmers are ready to NORTH BATTLE FORD.
