The complaint that persons are be- ing allowed to do teaming on the streets without a city license should be investigated by the City Council. It 'it is not fair to expect the local teamsters to whack up while outsid- ers are passed by. The rain was a mighty good thing for the Fair. It prevented the farm- prs from working and enabled them to come in and see the best exhibi- tion in Southern Alberta. Had the weather been fine many of them would have remained at horn- liar- vesting. The irrigation convention meets here next year.
