TAKECONIROLOF PACKING PLANTS Cabinet Shortly to Discuss Policies of Agriculture and Immigration Ottawii, Jan. 3,-The qiieHlloii of gov-erninont control and operatlcjii ot packing houses hns not iip to the prnBont time been considered by the cabinet council. A fltatomont to th)H effect was made today by a projnlnont member of the cabinet, who however, tlecllnud to oxpreaa an opinion as to whether or not any action Is likely to be taken in the near future. No action of a drastic cliaracter Ih likely to bo taken by the Kovornment In regard to tlie control ot packing or other matters until after Sir Robert Uordcii'� return to the capital about the midillo ot next woek. Then It will be possible to have a practically full attendance ot mlnlH-tors. The ony ab3ontDes will bo Sir George Foster who will not lie al)le to resume hlB duties for soiiie weeks, and, Hon. C. J. Ooherty, mlnisler of Justice, who will not return to Ottawa until after the middle of the iiioiiUi. Hon. J. A. Caldor, minister of immigration, and lion. T. A. C.rerar, minister ot agriculture, who liavo not been In Ottawa since election day. expected to arrive tomorrow. It is considered altogether probable that tlie government's first considoratlon will be given to policies emanating from the departments presided over by these two nilii-iBters as they are more intimately connected with the Important and problems arising from the need ot Increased production, and Incklentally, an a'ugmentatlon ot the number ot people on the lond. The soldiers'^ settlement board, whose duty It will be to assist men who have returned from overaoos to get a start at farm work, will, It Is I believed, be appointed before the end ot the month.

All agreed that the factory act as it stands la a discriminatory piece of legislation In that U allowed some merchonts to keep open on Saturday evenings while It forced tlie- larger Btoramendment. "The city of Lethhrldgo! d'ejpqiidB oh the country trade so much tor Its bust nesB that wo are In reality only a country town," daclarod one merchant, "and I know tho farmers will bo very muQh against the operation ot tho act to force tho stores here to closo Saturday ovoulngs at six o'clock. You would only have to look: down the business streets on a Saturday overling In summer know that, Lethbrldgo never had a bettor advb'rtlBdniont than Its motor packed streets on Saturday evenings last sumnior. To close the stores at six on Saturday would be a crime under the circumstances." 'Hat Feels Same Way. The Herald understands that Modi-cine Hat fools very nitich the same way and a delegation from Lothbrldgo consisting of Messrs. Bawdon and Williamson will visit that city to discuss tho whole proposition with tho raerohants thoro with a view to united action by tlve two cities In securing amendments; to tho act at the next Hossion. \ e ' ' In an interview at Cnlgavy, Deputy Attortioy General Drowning said: "Tho act In its entirety Is to bo 6nforcod from this dale, an^l ai>y extensions of night or day shift will only lie;glveii In accordance with tlitf.aqt for special roasouH ot trade or accildeut an(l only on'pormlsslon being obtalijed from tho factory Inspector and Uint payment for factory to Inspector and employee. Such cases, however, will be very special and no blanket permissions will be given." Not Early Closing Act. "It must always be borne In mind that tho act .Is not an Early Closing Act except Insofar as it regulates the number ot hours employes may work. But the employer May employ shifts and keep open all night lo tar as the Factory Act goes. Tho act governs the length ot the working hours, the minimum wage paid and tho sanitary conditions under which tho employes work. The heaUh authorities both provincial and municipal have shown every willingness to co-operate in the entorcement ot tho act. '"The employe cannot called upon to work longer than from 7 a.m. to G p.m. w4th an hour for lunch or tor more than S hours between 6 p.m. and 7 a.m. Ho or she cannot be called upon to work more than 10 hours In any, 24 hours, or it part ot the tlrao^ Is after C p.m. or before 7 a.m. he oan not work tor more than 8 hours." '' London, Jan. 1.-Tho New Year's' honor list announced last night bestows a large number of awards tor war service ot various kinds with a sprinkling ot art and literature. Am-ong the most prominent men to receive honors are Sir Frederick E. Smith the attorney general, who is now in Amerlco, to be a baron, while knighthoods are bestowed on John Galsworthy and Anthony Hope. Four new peerage^ are created, the men elevated belug Sir Frederick Cawley, Liberal M.P., and chancellor of the Duchy ot Lancaster; Sir John B. Lonsdale, Conservative, M.P.; Almerlc Hugh Paget, Unionist leader, and Sir James T. Woodhouso, royal commissioner under the Dotehco ot the Realm Act. Baron Purness, the shipping magnate, Is made a viscount. Sir Henry Norman, journalist, trav Qlor and author, and Thomas Richards, Labor member ot parliament tor West Monmouthshire, are made privy couu olUors. ~ The new knighta include John S. Keltle, the geographer; John Lavary, the painter; Sydney J. Low, author and journalist; Edwin L. Lutyiies, the architect; tJavld Murray, artist and Leslie Ward, artist. Galaworthy Decllnei Knighthood It Is otticlally amiounced that John Galsworthy's name was Included In tho list ot New Year's knights through an error. It appears that Mr. Galsworthy begged to be allowed to de cline tho-offer of knighthood and that hla name was Included in tho official Hat owing to the misconception of his wishes. Mrs. U. N.

RED CROSS NOTES Did It ever occur to you that we- all who ore helping In the Red Cross work-are in a race ivith death ? Every time the Red Cross helps to save the life ot a wounded soldier at the front it saves two men, tho man who was �\vounded and the man who would have to take his place. Isn't it easy for all of Us to get wonderfully enthused with the knowledge that the worlc' we do means the actual saving ot lives? Surely none of us need more of a spur than tlds. Every piece ot work turned out by Lethhrldge women makes other women's burdens easier to bear. Wo must have more of this work and more workers If hospitals are kept supplied in Europe, ambulances kept running and nurses provided. Are you doing your part?

Blmpliclty ot outline, Intense spiritual fervor and adorned with apt-est Illustration and which could not tall In protundly Impressing the au dience. Drifting was defined by the speaker in.terms ot living By the over changing forms, customs and fancies ot the day, rather than by tho steadfast principle ot a righteousness based on the life and teaching ot Jesus .Christ. Drifting was not essentially deliberate, he said, but was occasioned by ignorance, Belf-deceptiop, Inditterenco, etc., and to counteract thaao inevitable tenden oies a telling appeal was; made tor o canstaac)' and fidelity to all the means of grace ottered In Bible study, prayer and public worship. jh, dealing with tho many tempta tlons which suek to lay qtiiok an(l ot tective solge to these pliable and total tendencies of llfu the speaker said that the young womanhood ot our day was subject to graver besetments than was our young manhood, and condemned ill the strongest fashion those who would take-harmful advantage oi any ot these weaknesses. ., The meetings thus far, have been fraught 'ivlth good result,' and are stead: Ujr growing � in interost and'nymhers Mr. Horsman Is well worthy ot the l>e*!i response possible and.
