Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - April 11, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT .THE LETIIBRUKjE DAILY HERAl/l THURSDAY, APRIL 11,1918 RETAILERS HAVE NEW WATER RATES Hits Some Stores Hard, But There Existed a Misunder* standing Misunderstanding the new water Schedule OUblished by the city council last Saturday to go into effect at once, a deputation from the local Re-iail Merchants Association waited on :he council this morning lo protest. In opening E. J. Hill stated that he considered the new rates an imposition on the business ho.uses. as their floor space has been set as a basis lor the winter rate for stores, a feature of the new rates which was quite indefensible. Others 'of the deputation were strongly of -the same opinion. Mr. Hill had understood that his rate, which lastVear was about $40 for his store would .this year be round the U50 mark. Commissioner Grace, however, explained that there had been a niisuh-ierstanding. that there was a maximum Tate- of $50 for the use of water in stores, and that tJtie extra water :ax which was required for toilets and i wash basins, Mr. Hill's whole water rental for the year would be $64.75 with a Km per cent discount. Mr. Hill expressed himself as satisfied. Too Steep K. J. Sehl, however, thought the increase was too steep. For the Hick-Schl store the rate this year wi^l be 458.28 not as against ?:> last year an increase or ^22.28, which Mr. Sehl thought too high in proportion to the general rate of increase. Commissioner Freeman explained that it would require $12,000 more revenue in tho water department this year owing to the operation of the new filter plant and that the money must be raised. Commissioner Grace said that absolute equality could not be ar rived at until water meters were installed at all servtues, and intimated that this might be -done next year. Mr. Hill also wanted the proposed floor-space''tax in the regular taxation methods explained, and was told that this would not apply to retail stores where largo stocks were carried on which the owners, were assessed, but to professional men and commission merchants who do a large volume of business on little or no stock. It will cause doctors, dentists, lawyers and commission merchants who have been earning big profits on a very small assessment to pay higher taxes. The members of the deputation smiled when told this. Commissioner Freeman told the Herald later that he was doubtful whether the income tax would be put in force in Lethbridge this year. Oping to the rush prior to the closing of the session at Edmonton the city had been unable to learn the fate of the charter amendments but it was .> * .J. � .� A A A + + + + � � BANK CHARIIvOS ThiB week......... $�50,760 Lust year ... ....... $716,303 Increase 38 per cent. '........ .-.t : rr*-A-r j. �� Known the floor �pace and rental value tax amendments had been 'favorably reported by the municipal committee. The city has the power already to tax 'incomes over $1,000 a year but whether or not this will be done remains to be seen. It i� hardly likely however, that a start will be made in 5918. HENNESEY&WILSON ENDLESS CHAIN of WEEK-END RETAILERS AFTER THE GOVT. PttONB. 789 Amendments Very Indefinite And Are Hotfoot After What TKey Want Local retail merchants' at their meeting last night expressed themselves as greatly dissatisfied wlththe in� definiteness of the proposed amendments to the Factory Act which are now being niched through the legislature at Edmonton. The result, was that nine telegrams were dispatched to officials of the fOTernment and officers of the Retail Merchants Association at Edmonton a�KTng that tn the .amendments the definite hours during w.htch retail stores in the cities may be kept open on Saturdays should be included. It was pointed out strongly 'that Lethbridge. owing to Its wide country-trade connection, must be allowed to keep stores open with a full shift at least train eight in the morning till nine o'clock-*! night, and rhe specific granting of this request was asked. v The merchants are at a loss to know whether the uermission, granted* by an amendment, to the chief factory inspector to allow the extension of shifts by means of blanket permits in cases where war necessity makes it to work more than the regulation shifts, will apply in the case Of Leth; bridge retail stores. It is possible � that it does but it is too indefinite to � be depended on. 1 The local retail' clerks will meet tonight and it is understood to be their intention to send a strong protest to Edmonton against any extension of the hours originally set. forth in the Factory Act. ADAMS black Jack Chewipg gum and ciflarettes are two comforts lto soldier or sailor should be deprived of. Send both in generous quantities, and when you send gum you can make no mistake in choosing Adam8 Black Jack, for a stick a day keeps "nerves" away.

The Pathe groove in which the minute sound waves are recorded is from two to four times as large as in any other record. This big groove enables Pathe' to getm4Q% more tone colors and detail. Compare these records with other rhaltes in the same claps. Study the detail, the tone quality, tbe true naturalness of the voice, the orchestral accompaniment, always in perfect sympathy, yet note how voice and instrument each stand out clearand distinct right through lo tbe end. The satisfying completeness of J a. Pathe\ vocal record leaves nothing to be desired. . T^be Patbe' repertoire includes records by the fftrimoat artists of the worid,.and will prove a revelation to the critical lover of tbe excep-S tional in music. ' While to he�> Patbe' records at their best, they should be played ofl tbe Pathephons, yet v if you already have a machine of another make, any Pathe' agent can equip it Id pfuy Pathe' records-or, better still-will make you a liberal' allowance for your machine in part-payment of a Pathephone, which plays any record. 1^1 m Snd /or Pslhe ColaUfiu pf Ptriod Dcsigr.s, Tkfstas Fnm Pfcmr�P� Ce.ef Csss��,Liarit�e 4-t-t CUHttri Str-t .

LETHBRIDGE mo OLD IIE RESIDENT DEAD Jlacleod, April 10.-The Sunday school hall at the 3�ethbdist^hnrch was well filled Monday evening when the members of the League, Sunday school and Missionary society assembled to say-God speed to, Mr. and Mrs. Virtue, who leave this week for a visit to Lethbridge, thence to Moose Jaw, after which they expect to spend tbe sumrajf at the coast, and possibly the winter In California. � Mrs. Virtue Vas presented with a life membership by the members of the Missionary society, and an address, -while the school gave Mr. Virtue a signet Ting, so that the memory gf the Mac-leod S.S., where he m ah ardent worker, will always be fresh,/ and where both have-made and found jjrany friends. Old-Timer pies. A real old-timer passed out-Tuesday night in the person of Dave Mills, at the Municipal hospital, Macleod, whither he was placed -by his wife and Dr. Kirk, who has been attending him. He has been ailing for some time and drove in from his farm near the Blood Reserve last week, and taken .to the hospital where the end came. Dave Mills, or Old Dave as he was known, came to Alberta during the early days 6f the early traders, as his language was that of the Bloods. His mother was a Blood woman and his father a colored man. He acter^as interpreter during the treaty at Blachloot Crossing when the treaty was completed between the Indians and the Dominion Goverftuent over the C.P;R. crossing their, reserve, in which tbe late Father La-comb took a prominent part. After that he was interpreter on the'Blood reserve, until a few years ago he was placed on the list of pay ^.without work, and has since received a small amount monthly.

The Herald learned however, that Commissioner Armstrong, who is now in Calgary, has been notified by Hon. T. \V. Crothers. minister of labor, to negotiate with both parties in an endeavor to settle the differences. President Biggs of District No. 18 was in the city yesterday and with a deputation of the men from the Federal Mine he waited on Manager Mack but no progress was reported. It is understood Manager Mack refused outright to consider the reinstating of Mat Petras, the stormy petrel of the strikerwhereupon President Biggs aift the deputation withdrew with the statement on the part of.the district president that the mine could stay closed until such time as the mine manager would talk business. Asked whether it was a threat he was making, the district president retorted that the manager could construe the remarks in any way he saw fit. The Herald understands that President Col. Cooper of the Federal Coals Ltd., is now in Ottawa negotiating with labor department officials. ONE BOTTLE WORKED WONDERS Nujol receives this tribute from a Doctor MANY DIVORCE SUITS Vancouver, B:C, Apr. 10.-In comparison with pre-war times the number of petitions for divorce that have been entered in the supreme court of British Columbia at least so far as Vancouver is concerned, is much larger than at any previous period. There is scarcely a week in which at least one easy is not entered in the records of the courts. One,day last week two aetlons^were. commenced and on the same day two other cases were at hearing. Ta� first three months of 1918 show no law t�aa 81 actions. Of that number H petitions have been served by DUtptBdt and eight by wires. Last year there were la' the segregate 62 actions for divorce entered in the' Vancouver court*. [RYAffMDlU RAPIDLY REDUCE BIG STORE8 OF APPLES, POTATOES Ottawa, Apr. 10.-The Canada Food Board states that tho new anti-waste and anti-hoarding orders made by the board have been responsible, in part at least, for a large reduction in tbe surplus of apples and potatoes in Canada. The Quantity of apples in the Annapolis alley and in leading marketing centres was reduced during the month of Starch by nearly 100,000 barrels. The smallest reduction has taken place at Winnipeg, where 13,000 barrels of apples were in store on March 30, as compared with 15,400 barrels on March 1. Thja Canada Food Board lias telegraphed the chief frujt inspector at Winnipeg inquiring whether these holdings aro' liable to be marketed without loss. It the stocks there cannot be taken care of without waste the food board is prepared to reqiure dealers to dispose of their holding* without delay.' Very considerable supplies of onions are reported to be held in British Columbia. Dealers there are warned that they are liable to prosecution If any part of these stocks are allowed to spoil.
