The dance given last evening under the auspices of the Auditorium -- FAITH, HOPE AND CHARITY- -the Good Book tells us, are the cardinal virtues. Tor some time past we have done business pretty much on, Faith, and while we have not lost Hope, we fear that our present course mayv get us on speaking terms with Charity. This, then'is to say that oh and :after February 1st, we will change our ways and sell for cash. We will still keep books for the accom-rriodation of our customers. We will give one month's credit, when previously arranged for. AH accounts must be paid by the .1.5th of the following month. Terms of settlement on Contract Work will be specified on the agreement. We have lost none of our love for the Alberta people; this is a purely business proposition, absolutely impersonal, actuated by a desire to give our patrons lower prices and to give ourselves more money in the drawer and less on/the books.. Everybody knows that a. cartain percentage of charge accounts eventually go to profit' and loss. - Who pays this margin of loss?- The honest man,of course. * - ; This arrangement will enable us to considerably .reduce our. prices and thus in a small measure help oitr patrons in their fight against "the high cost of living." ick-Sehl Hardware Co.

'At'the close; of the evening, ai de $191,000 to payofl debts, and $100,000 on current account, to be loaned at J20.000 per month, making $291,000 in all, chargeable against 1913 taxes. With the ?348,0Q0 received not long since from the sale of bonds, the city-will have received almost $660,000, which will place it again on a sound basis. A sigh of relief 'wejnt up around the aidermanlc board yesterday when the mayor made the announcement. Last year the bakers of the city fougiht the payment of the $25 license but to no purpose. They paid the tax but resolved "n�ver again." W. *H. Peebles will lead the onslaught this year, arid fired the first gun yesterday when, he waited on the council to protest. He held that Lethbridge is the only-city in the province where a heavy license is charged. A license of 60 cents: would be enough to meet the requirements of the city in the way of providing sanitary inspection. ."If w.e remove the license jvlll it reduce the price of bread?" asked Aid. Aird, Scottish thrift coming to fore. "That's not for me to say;" the answer w�b just as canny. However; the mayor said that he had heard a lot of complaints of late against varl. ous licenses, and thought he could promise that the whole bylaw would receive due consideration and amendments would follow. The request of the chief of police for another man for office duty was referred by Aid. Loyerlngf to the police committee for report The council is- almost ready to consider an industrial policy. Aid. Mc-Carably urged that no,time should be lost in arriving at a basis- in thiB matter and it 'was practically agreed to call a special meeting at an early date for that purpose. In tlie meantime the counoil Is in communication with a macaroni factory which will likely locate here. It is possible that a portion of the city stores will be rented to the concern for its purpose, although an effort will be made to sell the building and secure a site near tho car barns. Mayor Hardin and seme- of the members of the council are not satisfied with the conversion of the woollen mill into a stores* building. ...� � A few mouths ago Miss English, erne- the 'teacthera 'of the public school staff, felt against a, seat in a. at the time ana the ca-r -stopped to allow two belated passengers to get aboard. The shock of the car coming to a stop unbalanced her and the broken ribs resulted. The suit calls for damages of $600. The' city will fight the case. C. J. Eckstorm is considering the question of turning the. buildings on the athletic park into an up-to-date market place and wrote informing the city of his plans. He hopes to have the market ready for general business inside 90 days. The pressure afforded by the city waterworks is not satisfactory to Fire Chief Hardy, and he claims that, under the present conditions it is impossible to get a better insurance rate. ^Supt. Reid claims that the pumping station Is overloaded. The whole matter was referred to the Fire ,: street car in. North Lethbridge, break ceedings.

If the cost of production last year was $1.40, and the five .cents per ton royalty is taken off this year, the mine should be able to mine coal for $1.36 per ton in 1,913, Selling/'it 'at $1.80 per ton to the city, ppwetiplant would give a profit on each ton mined of 45 cents. '. It has been jntini,ated.by, the ,c^ty engineer, under whose jurisdiction the mine comes, that there is' a possibil-� ity of a reduction in the cost to the power plant this year, and that reduction will be 30 cents per ton, leaving, still 15 cents ,per ton. profit ! over the operating;,cost in 1912.
