OLIVER HAS T In a letter to the Herald, former Mayor William Oliver offers to serve the city for the remainder of Mr. Grace's expired term without salary or recompense. / Following is .Mr, Oliver's offer: Lethbridge, April 19, 191S, Editor L-etlibrirtge Herald; Dear Sir,-^.Mr, Grace hjiving resigned as a city commissioner, and our city financially is not in good shape, now is the time for those who can volunteer their services in the �city's interests' to come forward and help matters out. I therefore offer my services to tlie city as a substitute to fill Mr, Grace's j place as commissioner of works and property 'for his unexpired term without "^hy remuneration or salary from the city whatever. I cannot promise ray entire undivided time, as I have other interests, but I will not neglect the city's interests for my own. In offering fny services free to the city it is from a patriotic and necessary motive, and they are offered for what they are worth and not with the intention ot impairing our city government or keeping others from enjoying the salary attached to the position. Yours truly, W.M. OLIVER. MAJESTIC^.'iEl Mon. Apr. 22nd THE PLAY THAT STRIKES "SEX" O'CLOCK ED. W. ROWLAND & LORIN J. HOWARD offer The Startling Expose of the Things We Whisper About FOR HALF HOLIDAY Local retail merchants to a man have signed a petition to be presented to the city comtcii asking that a bylaw-be passed granting a/Wednesday afternoon holiday from Ma.v 1st to October 1st. Jn return the merchants Iwtve decided to keep their stores'open on Saturdays until nine o'clock in the evening wlth�a full staff.; TJie petition is signed by 2S members of the Lethbridge branch of the R. M. A. and by 39 other merchants. Just how this will be viewed by the retail clerks is a question. The Herald kijows that in many instances the (^clerks .ire quite satisfied with the pro-' posal, though a number feel (hut a fight should be made to have the Factory Act strlctl.v observed in the matter of Saturdajfr hours. There has been no ruling from the chief factory inspector as tp how the amendments to the act will affect the retail stores fiiroughont the province, but ill is thought tliet the granting of a halt holiday more than offsets the additional three hours ot work on Saturday evening.
