Browning, deputy attorney general, re(iuc8t/ing the city police force to take over the administration of the liquor act within the city, now that a portion ot the fines arc to come to the city. Commissioner Fi'eeman pointed out that Calgary was kickiuK because tlio cities are allowed only one-thlrtl ot the fines. Mayor Jlardie thought that inspector I'iper of tlio A.P.P. force should be asked to meet the council to discUBS matters. There might be times when the city's small force could not handle the situation. IJiscussion of police matters led tu ii discussion as to which force should liave taken action in the strikers dis turbanee at the Federal mine tht other evening. Commissioner Free-man's opinion was that ihe A. P. 1'. shouhf* have acted. The mayor was inclined to think the city police should have acted cailier than they did. Some uncomplimentary things were said about Hon. T. \V. Groth-ers, minister ot labor, lor his iuactl-vlty in such proWems. 'Ontario is behind O'Connor,'* said the mayor.

He said that sucli diroe tlon posts are erected in almost all cities where there is heavy tralTic. He thought a post with a nice little red light on it should be erected at each busy corner. It was decided lo get prices ou posts and buy .six of them, which will be put In place with bs little delay as possible, Miners' Sports M.
