Well, iu case you don't understand look up last Monday's Au interesting and enthusiastic meeting of the retail clerks mid sales ladies was held in the Labor Temple on Monday evening. W. Scott, in- terim President in the chair. There was a large attendance, and the bus- iness of the evening included tho closing of the charter application, election of officers, fixing of night of meeting, etc. Tho district organizer for American Federation of Labor, Thos. S. Harold was again present, and for the benefit of those present who were unable to attend the pre- vious meeting, briefly sketched the j ployed to spend all their money on drmk if they are not working? If is the only solution to the1 un- employed problem 'that the "cap- tain" ciui bring forward, I would like to draw his attention to the fact that ilu> Salvation Army them- selves have and are contributing in a large way to the number of uno.m- ployed in this country. 1 refer, of course, to the large number of un- skilled laborers the Army is sending to this country under false- pretences. Here are a few quotations from the Birmingham Post of Doc. 12L, 1907: 'Colonel' Lamb, the- head of tho j Immigration Department of the Sal- movement, etc., but there was no or- ganization on the American contin- ent, or jxsrhaps in the entire world, more progressive, more conservative, or advantageous to its membership, than the 'Ititeniaiional Typographi- cal Union of America. It was or- ganized in 185'J under the title of tho Xatimia! Typographical Union, which was amended in 1862 to tukt! in Canadian Unions and called the International Typographical Union of America. lie mentioned that the Printers Home at Colorado Springs was a credit to the 1.

Nicholson as manager, and asked for the support of all both in the field and in the stand. Thereaf- ter the evening's entertainment wfis taken up and for three solid hours' WUK kept up to the high water mark of excellence. Where so much talent was present it would be a dilHcult matter to individualize, but I cannot refrain from mentioning particularly that stunt given by 'the printers' quartette, assisted by Sir. Barclay. This was a decided success, and caught the audience napping. The local hits in this number were very popular, and the encore they received was richly merited. In the course of the evening speeches were delivered by Mr. W. A. Buchanan and Mr. E. Ilngcll, the former referring to the many' opportunities existing in the west for prints, while the responsi- bility of the press was not forgotten The latter was reminiscent.- and men- tioned that he was working with present premier of Saskatchewan in the first office' in Canada in which worked. The chairman had reluc- tantly to veto encores, owing to the amount of talent "forthcoming. Sharratt was present with his nigger doll and gave a vcntriloquial stunt which was much appreciated. Thu singers included Messrs. Kilner, Gra- ham, Viner, Jones, Barclay. Welling- ton, Walsh, Westley, and Matthews. AW-. K. Smith, one of the prints, ren IF YOU ARE CAIEFUL OF YOU!

Am- ongst this number are to be found all kinds of trades but the majority are unskilled laborers. I have spok- en repeatedly within the past week or so with a number of the latter, who have wintered here under very trying circumstances. They inform- ed me that they have time after time asked the city foreman for work even been in attendance at the hour of commencing work. The same answer was always the result but they asked me why it was that any other nationality but an old countryman was taken on in prefer- ence to them. While they had spent the winter here, cut of work, num- bers of instances were quoted where new comers received an immediate start. If this is the exact state of affairs, thnn tho town foreman ought Crow's Nest Lodge, No. 785, Broth erhood of Railroad Trainmen, held a most successful concert and ball in the Oliver Hall on Wednesday even- ing last. The function opened with a short concert, which was most en- joyable, ilr. Kilficr, 3Ir. and Airs. Prince rendered songs with much ac- jcepiance, while Miss Lizzie Kinni- burgh delighted the audience with a -tcilation. When I say that Mr. J. i. H. Prince was master of ccremon- es, the fact of the ultimate success of the grand ball :will not be won- dered at. Half time, arrived and an adjournment was made to the Hub Cafe where Mr. Charles had a icarty repast in'readiness, to which ample justice was done. The decor- ations were unique, flags, bunting, and pennants bearing inscriptions of decorating the walls and ceiling. A novel eftcct was produced >y a display of brakesmen's and rtcred a flute solo in an excellent man ner, and was warmly encored. Mess- rs. GebfT. Webb and F. Waddington gave recitations and the pianists were 3Iessrs. Wood Nedhum and Sloan. At the close of the program .the chairman extemled on behalf of the local typos., a cordial votu of thanks to all the entertainers who had assisted in v making the time go pleasantly and also place the smoker on record as the best ever held in Lothbridge..

On the headlight were inscrib- ed the figures 735, being the number of the Lethbridge lodge of the order. The committee are to be congratu- lated for the excellent -manner in which everything xvas curried out, and it is safe to say -that there has been no more enjoyable function of its kind held in this city. A mass meeting of all union men will be held in the Labor Temple on Monday evening, to hear Mr. W. C. Simmons, M.P.P.. who has kindly ngreed to deliver an address on the Workmen's Compensation Act recent- ly passed by the Provincial Legisla- ture. It is to be hoped every union man in the city will make it a point to be present, as a profitable even- ing is assured. When the smoker given' by the lo- cal branch of the International Typ- ographical Union was described as the "best ever" it certainly is no dream. That was the'unanimous op- inion of those who had the privilege of attending. President Thos. S. Harold, in his remarks as chairman, stated that the railway brotherhoods came in for a good deal of praise for their conservatism, the Uniled Mine Do You Need Furniture?

THt HOME Ot HC VALUES sessor is getting his work dona so that the ratepayers can look for- ward with eager expectancy to Ui3 receipt of their assessment It is bad that Dad Didn't think of it to have the assessor take u record of the population as he was making his other records. The in- formation would not have ex- actly exact but it would have born close enough to give us an idon of hovr big we are. Tt would not have been a great extra work ami would have been worth something. The city is growing fast and some people believe it now has a popula- tion of at least six thousand. if that is so it is time that the out- side world got over that census idea that our people number only about twenty-seven hundred. We ought to have a nose-counting bee to find out how many there are bf us anyhow. Dad has reason to think that the Ratepayers' Association is some- thing of a joke. The promoters arcj a veil-meaning bunch of mer but they take themselves too seriously. They ought to join'the order of Owls and study Rule 5. They read Dad a lecture on Home training because his son accused them of carrying a load of green apples under their belts. To show that thry weren't kickers but rather helpers of fathers, the association is going to discuss whether to advise and his council to build a new city hall or not. They believe in being pro- gressive and spending lots of money in making the city beautiful and well equipped. Not one of these ratepay- ers will have a kick against their tax hill when they receive it this fall. Speaking of beautifying the city, reminds .mo of the lovely weed gar- dens we had last year under the name of boulevards. Seems to me that Dad should give instructions early; to the chiel gardener that he may get the soil prepared to receive instead of the. beautiful flowers that made the street look hi- deous in bygone years. There is not much use in having a man spend his tune, the soil nicely weeds to grow "and then hire a man to cut the .weeds and another to haul them away.. Those boule- vards would look swell if a bag or two of grass seed were sowed and looked, after. We want a seed time but no harvest. Und says that the brokers are not tumbling over buy the tity's delxjnturcs. The prices offered are just as -good or better than those to other towns but they arc not good enough for this city. Dad sees no sense in paying a high rate of interest on the deben- tures and then selling them at a big discount. There, is no money in a deal of that sort As long a.s s the city can get along without the mon- ey it should not give away the mort- gage on its future. This is in mighty good shape as far as is concerned and should be able to: go a good bunch of money for anything it puts on the market.
