Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 9, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta the LETHBRIQaR DAILY, HERALb R^taikrs Promise Half-Holiday In Return For Saturday Nights Le^hbridge retailers aland prepared shopping.

This was decided at a general meeting o{ tho Board of Trade held on Tuesday night, which was largely attended by the retail merchants. It was decided that a delegation should be sent to Calgary on Thursday morning wheii Premier Stewart will be thereand will bo waited on by delegations of retail-'ers from lK!thbrldge, Medicine and Calgary, Tbe memorandum passed by the local board by an unanimous vote follows: Memorandum by the Lethbridge Board of Trade on Hours of Work For : , Retail. Clerks % Regarding the legislation on ^tho �bove subject enacted at the 19l7"S�i8-' ion of tbe Alberta L,eglslature, the practical application of which was deferred at tho request of the merchant* affected till this yeai>-the enforcement of this legislation Is gravely detrimental to the general interests of the people of this city and district and th|8 board of trade respectfully sug-Cests that it be not enforced. The people of this province generally are awakening to the fact that business done by them with retail torea outside of the province Is not (ood tor the best Interests of our community, while retail merchants 'supported by wholesale houses are'en-dMToriog to improve their business methods so as to give an Increasingly better and efficient service to,their customers. Personal contact'in trading Is one of the features of'succeastul business and it is good for':all of us that "this should be preserved. "Our farming-customers appreciate this and one of tbe times that suits them best for doing business in our cities, towns an^-villages is Saturday, afternoons and evenings. That time la..also convenlent^or workers in other-industries to do their THE TONIC M ' BRINlLHtALTH 'f^li^a.W Buillis Up Tke with general convenitenco. AVe submit that the bBJt way to arrive at this is by enacting an Early Closing Act to apply to all retail stores or places of business selling !;oods at retuU iu tho province, .requiring that till retail stores shall close at C p.m. on Hon-day, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, and 1 p.m. on Wednesday and 10 p.m. on Saturday. Very few retail stores open beloro S a.m. The above proposal would make starting at S a.m. each day a working week of 5'i hours. Provision should be made iu the net that stores may remain open till 10 p.m. on the day preceding any reco,^-nized holiday and on three days before Shrlstmas. A special clause would have to be provided to allow for service In drugstores. Preiident ilarnoch explained the financial standing of the board, showing that last year's plan had worked out very well and it was decided to adopt it again, A committee composed of Messrs. Downer, Hoyt, Shaw and Home was appointed to look after a campaign to raise tbe funds of the board in the same manner for the coming y^r.

We woiild ^further recommend that this convention draw to the attention of tho provincial and civic auth-I oritles the necessity of providing some measure of relief to the over-worked nursing staffs in our various city hospitals. Early Cloatng AVhile Early* Closing Bylaws have been adopted by a number of cities and in the case of Calgary a Wednesday halt holiday has.become effectK-e all the year round, we recommend that this Convention, give consideration to some measure that may be presented to^ tho government >vith a view of bringing about a half-holiday each week, and the limiting of tho nuni-ber 'of hours per day that may apply to employees in all stores throughout the province. Tiie convention will adjourn sine die some time today. mSON'S SPEECH the skilled worker, also placing the recipient of vocational training. at a disadvantage In competition fdt. employment at the- conclusion of the war when employers discard the war sentiment. ' ' , The-general eiebjipmic effect' of thii system of vocational training williun-doubtedly re-act to the advantage/of the employer. We would suggeat;;|hat the government appoint a comjjetent commission to enQiiire into ttib'^industrial actlvitlei of Canada With- a /lew of determining the beat method of extending vocational training to the disabled soldier and the rehabilitating at the close of the war the soldiers'i'e-turnlng to Canada. . ! The convention concurred in the report after Delegate Ross of Calgar>-, .-who is head of the re-educatiou board �t th^ military ..hospitals commission at Calgary, had explained the shortcomings of the present system. Sergt. Jowltt of Medicine '^at declared that In his opinion the question was the moat important yet touched by the convention, .He declared that be.h^d aeen British, returped soldiers in L,oa-don making a living by selling papers �nd laces to the everlasting disgrace of tbe Mother Country and he hoped Canada woiild do better. The workers would have to continually urge oh the government ,tbe need of every effort along this line If Canada were to, do the right thing by the soldiers. '> , Two other questions affecting the �oldiera a:;id their dependents were disposed of thus by the convention. Returned Soldier and Trade Unionist "That this convention concur Ih the pronouncement made by the Ottawa convention of the Trades Congress on the future relationship of the returned, soldier and the trades unlbnlst, believing that his economic Interests are bound up in the future welfare of the �working class of Canada.

Shred-loyee8 in drug stores and the ne-cessjtyfor some protective legislation for them, we recommend that this con ventlon deal'with the matter with ii view of securing for these wage workers some measure of relief. Bureau of Labor Believing that the various leglsla live-matters affecting the wage work ers of the province can be more adequately dealt with by a department responsibly) for this kind of loglsla tion, we recommend that this conven tion give consideration to the question j of securing an act which will create a Buj'eau.ot Labor under which will be placed the various measures affecting the wage workeiia of the province. Publlo Schools The attention of the provincial government Should be -drawn to the necessity of makling further provision for the^ education and the health of the young by arranging for medical, dental-and optical treatment and the supplying tit all necessary school sup-plie(> free to all school children. The .statp. should recognize this responsibility in the care .and education of the child as an asset to the state, . Public Hospltali The question of public hospitals is coxtinced fjiom FkOKT PaOII U.S. cement New York, Jan. 9.-Edltoriala in the New York newspapers this morning unite in praising the president's defln Itlon of the American peace terms. Throughout the country also the.note of adverse criticism was almost entirely lacking. The president's words were called the best, possible statement of the democracyia cause.  Th9 World isays: "It is only by the recojiitlon of these principles that the war can end 'and the president's ad dress cannot fair to bring new Inspiration to all the free natloris that are battling against inilltarism, autocracy and imperialism. As he truly says, the moral climax of this, the culminating and final war for humaa^llberty has come;' It can end only when a democratic peace' is established or democratic government has surrendered to autocracy." ' The Times: "In yielding to the prevailing habit-of re-stating war alms the powers th&t are now defenders of the world's freedoita have too far lost sight of the ^imperative need of df stroying Germany's plan of a broad belt of military aiid economic control in middle and southeastern Europe by thrusting across the Berlin-Bagdad line a state or. group of. states sheltered against German influence and aggres sion:'' ' � The Tribune: "President .Wilson has done nothing finer;, there is noth ing more admirable in American his tory than his address of yesterday. In a single speech he has transformed the whole character and broken with all-the traditions of American policy. He has established an American world policy and ideal of Iriterhatlonal pol icy throughout the civilized world," The Sun: "We*commend the admirable precision-with which President Wilson has stated.theprlnciplea which the allies regara as essential to a per manent peace. We likewise commend the practical sagacity which appears In his aVoidance of the- attempt to speak with finality' In regard to questions which naturally ure subject tb further discusaibn after the present belligerents have found their way to the threshold of the household nega tlatlon. Most of all, we cpmmend the unbounded resolution and unwavering pluck with which he expresses tbe American people's determiuatlon to win ill that for vhich they are righteously dt war." ' . The Herald:'""The address, boars a message to the .Russian people >vhlcb the patriotic among ithe.m.v^lll understand, . even if those temporarily in power in Petrograd do not. Whether the Bolshevlki have been sincere in their demand for a. statement of war aims or.merely have beet^.ccholng tbe cry raised in Berlin, They have their answer.
