(Moose -3aw Times) The matter of salaries of city offi- cials for the year is now under consideration by the various commit- tees of the council and will no doubt be dealt with by the Council at an. early date. In fixing salaries services rendered is of course the chief consideration, but comparisons with salaries paid, for 9. similar class is always an element enters into consideration. In fixing the civic sal- aries in Moose Jaw it is therefore well for the rate-payers and council to be informed as to the salaries be- ing paid in other cities where tho work is much similar to Moose Jaw. By the courtesy of the city clerks of the several cities named in Answering our inquiry..

To be Produced Undtr Young Men's Club. Tho Executive Committee of the Young1 Men's Tliib have made arrange- ments with the management of the "Sweet I-avendes" Company whereby this delightful domestic orama will be produced under tho auspices of the Young Men's Club of Lethbridge. As it was the original intention of the company presenting "Sweet Laven- to turn over the proceeds of the two performances be given at the) Eureka theatre, on tho evenings of January 25th, and to some de- serving cause in the city, the Leth- bridge public will no doubt agree with tho Company that there is no more deserving organization in the City than the Young Men's Club. The work which this institution is doing among the young men of the City is well known to all of us. Organized 'about three years ago. with a mem- bership of less than a dozen, it has grown and prospered until today its membership is over a hundred. This season the Club has equipped a first class gymnasium and bath rooms, as well as reading and writing rooms: the gymnasium is under the able man agement of Mr. Frank A. Maxwell, late' Y.M.C.A. Physical instructor at Duluth. and classes of instruction are heki nightly. In order to carry on this splendid work among the young men of the ciiy. dollars are required; the management of the Club .deeply appreciate the generous support the Club has received from tho Lethbridge public in the past, and it is-with a feeling of confidence that they again solicit the support of the citizens. By making a point of .attending the two performances of "Sweet Lavender" at the Eureka Theatre, on Monday and Tuesday evenings, January 25th and 26th, you will not only be support- ing a good cause, but you will also be provided with an evening's enter- tainment of the highest order. It'is hardly necessary for us "to again al- lude to the personel Ojf the Company presenting "Sweet the best dramatic talent in the city has -betn secured, and under the able di- rection of Mr. Richard Hincks, we are confident that they will render a good account of themselves. The advance I sals of seats is now open at Higin- botham's Drug Store, and judging by the way the plan is being filled up, i it would bu well fo_r those intending to take in the play to lose no time in booking their seats.
