Some activity is r war fronts, the Fren ful on the west, as Italian front legislation for the cities of the province as intimated to ttle mayors of the four leading cities by Premier Sic Tart at the Edmonton conference, \vil>. if enacted and enforced, go a lone way towards clearing up the involved financial situation in which the cities find themselves at the present time as a result of laxity iu tax enforcement in the past.

At the same time the provincial officials are ready to help the cities weather the financial gale into which they have run due to past reckless financing during the jjoom days. Premier Stewart is willing to aid the cities in any feasible way to lighten the tax burden, while at the satno time paying their debts.
