Peterson was at one time connected with the Cardston Globe. Are Urging Establishment Of Grain Inspection Here While Lethbridge will continue to wiro was sent yesterday: iu 1914 by C. Mar- Quite a largo deal was consummat- ed in the city yesterday when A. Bon- amico purchased the Lethbridge Mac- aroni comoany from C. Marinaro as a going concern. The amount of money involved is not known but is under- stood to run well into the live figures. The. Lethbridge Macaroni Co. was established here naro, win built about seven years ago. The Fer- j nie plant was not well situated for, the business, so Mr. Marinaro made representations to Lethbridge with the result that he was encouraged to1 come here. Lethbridge Industrials, Ltd., a company of local men furnish- ing capital to put up the This spring Mr. cent, on the -I'lms; "since coming times added to the ca- pacity of the plant. When he came here the domestic macaroni business was confined to Western Canada, but since the war, and 'because of the evident .excellent quality of the pro- the Lethbridge factory, the trade has become Dominion-wide and the 'business lias doubled again. Mr. Marinaro will not leave Lethlmdge for a while. He will take a rest but he has not settled on what line of busi- ness he will follow in future. A. Bonaiuico, the new i'actory own- er, was in business as a merchant in Lethbridge seven years ago for about a year- and one half. Since then he has been in business in various Pass towns where he has been successful. He will follow the same policy in the macaroni as has made it so successful under Mr. Marinaro and hopes the business will continue to grow as it has grown in the past two years.

Provincial prohi- O Every day brings its own surprises in the strike situation in District No. 18, United Mine Workers of America. Today the miners at Coalhurst, who .struck yesterday morning, are back at work, while those at Chinook who scorned to strike yesterday, held a meeting last night and voted to go out thin morning, with the res nit, that tho mine is idle today. The Gait miners are still out today. It's a sort of hide and seek game the miners ai'e playing, with each local a law unto itself. Or so it seems, at any rate. Anything may happen. The men may all go back to work on Mon- day, following payday tomorrow'. The operators in this district have distinct hopes that they will. Then again, they may all quit at any time unless there is tangible evidence from the negotia- tions between operators and union of-, ficials in Calgary that things will be all fixed up soon. According to reports from Calgary things did look rosy for a moment last evening, with the result that Secretary bition was to come into force on Sep- Carter got busy and sent out tele-- _ j grams to ajl local unions asking them temher ifith of this y ear-aid to stay to so back to work pending the result m force until 1919. the meetings between the officials Last night he said, "There is both had jugt 3tartetl. telling what the future may bring jThis teiegram failed to move the min- forth.

Tins statement came in the face of the announcement ciiv that submission of a referendum tq the of the province was be'irig .very seriously considered by the govern- ment. The positiveness. ,of newspap-; ers' assertion and the nature of the premier's statement leave political cir- cles to their own opinions. One out- standing fact which explains to some extent the seriousness of the political and temperance situation is that the liquor interests, particularly the dis- tilling interests, have sworn -to de- feat the T-Iearst candidate, whoever he may he, in south-wesc Toronto, which elected Hon.

A.t Taber all is-quiet. The miners there are loathe to consider any strike action. They have been through a long hard siege of idleness .and they need work. Manager Howard of .the Canada West informed the Herald this morning that about IHQ men are work- ing every day and the mine is having the best summer run it has ever ex- perienced. He looks for no trouble unless forced by drastifc action in other parts of the district- Calgary is beginning to worry about its coal supply. H is stated that the city has only enough coal on hand to meet the demand for 20 days in case of a big strike.
