MILADI Retailers and Clerks Present Arguments to Commissioners on Working of Factory Act Judge Carpenter and A- O. Browning, deputy attorney general, sat aa a commission on the factory act in the board of trade this mornfhg when they heard the act discussed by the rotailera, retail clerks and labor organizations, and when all the evidence was In, it appeared that the only bone Try Making Your Own Cough Remedy Ton can ��� about .....:..__ -..i.i:.. \. ,___.-.. -__....i i.- i . __ ... _ . i The buying public, however, must be i convenienced, and certain restrictions : are placed on retail stores which cause I inconvenience to tile public. This is 1 especially true in the case of the farm-:' ers, who are being called on to pro-> duce to the limit, and who take ad vantage of the Saturday night shop ping facilities in order to do his shop terest. The principle of the act is to limit the hours of labor. The act as at present provides that a retailer may keep his employees on duty 60 hours a week. But retail stores in Leth-bridge do not open till eight o'clock, and in many caseB the lady clerks are not asked to be present till 8.30 or nine, so that with 10 o'clock closing ping withouUosingjvaluable time from on Saturday nights the maximum hours ~~ of. labor is 57 or three less then the his Work on the farm. Eight Hour Day Mr. Keating-Yes. Mr. Mockford-Yes, but it doesn't go far enough, hour day. Q.-Should shops be on the same basis as factories? \ Mr. Shepherd-No. The nature of the business is entirely distinct. No Is Absolutely Safe It is clarified and pasteurized. Crystal Dairy Limited NOL CREATES STRENGTH Positive-Convincing Proof It is all very well to make claims, but can they be proven? We publish the formula of Vinol to prove the statements we make about it. law allows. But the retailers of Lethbridge subscribe to the board of trade memorandum and are willing to We should have an eight, grant a Wednesday half holiday in order to shorten the weekly hours of labor so that Saturday evening opening will not make the weekly hours more than 53 a week or seven Ibjb than the act allows. The act therefore is not correcting any abuse In that regard. The question of labor is very serious at the present time In all industries and It Is not practicable to secure additional help on Saturday evenings if the act were enforced is it stands at present. The act really,; should be suspended until six months after peace is declared. Mr. Keating-I don't think it either essential or necessary that the retail stores should be open on Saturday evenings. Give the act a fair trial first In any event. Mr. Mockford-That Is the bone of contention. The retail clerks object to the long hours of labor on Saturday and they have a right to protest against working 12 hours. The farmers do very little shopping on Saturday evening. If it is true that the farmers come to town to do their shopping on Saturday evening as their only available time why do not the I.H.C. and other big implement concerns and the banks, with which the farmers do most o� their business also keep open on Saturday evenings. The contention is iabsurd. - Q.-Should the. act, be amended so as to include hotels serving mealsas well as restaurants? Mr. Shepherd-Not Interested. Mr. Keating-Yes. � '> people, nearly all women, Germans ; stormcil the civic coal distributing of- Paris, Jan. 23.-As si result of an important, raid which the made in Belgium, after an intense bom-', fb-e.

Blackwood, Manager Mr. Moclcford-Should be applled'to hotels also. Q.-Should the act be extended to places of lea's.than 5000 population? Smaller Places Mr. Shepherd-If It is to remain the law and in operation it should be extended to all places. At present the act allows tor, serious discrimination. If it Is goed for the cities it is good for the .towns, ,\ . Mr. Keating-No opinion to 'offer* ; Mr. Mockford;-There are so; few employees affected lp the small towns that it really doeBnV make much difference. Not Suspended Mr. Browning'stated that he wanted it understood the act was not suspended while the commission Is sitting. That rumor hid got about. Mr. Mockford declared that the public would not cater more to the mail order houses if the stores close three hours earlier on Saturday. Mr. Livie of the Taylor mills, stated (that already, under the operation of the act, he had had employees come to him on Saturday and ask permission to go down town in the afternoon to do shopping which they could formerly do at night.
